I don't like most fantasy, and I don't like Tolkien. I couldn't get through The Hobbit as a kid, even when my dad offered me $20 to read it, and I couldn't get through it as an adult, even though I thought I should read it.
I haven't seen any of the new versions of the movies.
I haven't finished any of the books.
Now mind you, I can understand why people enjoy this type of fantasy, but now we have Winter Storm Gandalf?
I am not making this up. And I will feel like a complete asshole if I have to call into work tomorrow and say that Gandalf has me snowed in.
What's next? 50 Shades of Grey, rainy weather? Hurricane Harry Potter? Since when did Hollywood take over the weather?
There is my Wednesday rant, take it or leave it.
