Found Him: Sauron’s Eye Spotted in Space

How much more effective would Sauron have been at finding the Hobbits with his ring is he had an even higher vantage point? Say, if he were in space. Of course, maybe his eyesight isn’t quite that good so it would have hurt him more than helped him. It hasn’t stopped him from trying however. …

It’s Nice but How’s it Look from Space: Middle Earth From Space

In what I hope becomes a meme, or at least a regular appearance on Uncanny Flats, here’s some pretty shots of something from space. The difference here is that this land mass doesn’t exist anywhere in our universe. This is a space shot of Middle Earth. I know, you’re confused and frightened, it’s OK. I’m …

Would Steal: Beautiful Hobit Artwork Journal

Artist Maddie Brindley created this Bag End dollhouse with nothing more than endless hours work, deadly glue stick skills, and basic modeling supplies. The end results are pretty impressive.

Man At Arms: Bilbo’s Sting

So it’s been a while since I’ve featured one of Tony Swatton’s Man At Arms videos. Too long if you ask anyone who likes to see videos of swords, fire, and wanton destruction as much as I do. Just like all his creations Swatton puts his own spin of things. With Sting he didn’t copy …

I’d Vacation There: Google Maps Middle Earth

Who else is excited for the next Hobbit movie? If you’re not, I really don’t care, because you are now dead to me. I know you are out there nitpicking that the first movie didn’t follow the book perfectly and that the second is going to be worse but you know what, The Hobbit is …

Nice use of Scholarships: OSU Marching Band Does Hollywood

The life of a marching band member has to be pretty depressing. Even your best performance will be missed by half the crowd because they would rather take a bathroom break or go out for some nachos than watch you dance around the field with a sousaphone. Then the other half the crowd is really …

Hallo-win: Gandalf the Fabulous

Every year there are a couple of people who just come up with the most clever or well done Halloween costumes. These costumes come about in one of two manners. Either the person spends six months crafting their costume in preparation for their one night out on the town, or in desperation they throw together …

LEGO Modular Castles: For LEGO Royalty on a Budget

Have you ever decided that you would go to the store and buy one of their new LEGO sets and then come home with doughnuts instead because those are way more affordable? Well it’s happened to me, and you can tell. The area on my body where I store fat, between my nose and my …

Men of Steel and Iron, Now Plastic

If you’re anything like me you live a sad life and I’m sorry you are playing your sad song about not going to the San Diego Comic-Con. Every year we see pictures of all the awesomeness that is the SDCC and every year we’re to broke to do anything about it. Someday. Someday. This year …
