05:29 pm - Oh the Horror!
Saw this today in Best Buy, on a display advertising the Blu-Ray edition of the Lord of the Rings movie trilogy.  Oh, this hurts.

Let's read that text: “Best Buy Exclusive Includes: Andruil™ Sword Letter Opener (a $30 Value)”

Andruil™[sic]?  Really?  As John Cowan asked, "The Flame of the Wset"?  On the one hand, this is so geeky it is perhaps embarrassing to have noticed it.  On the other hand... dude!

(If you really are lost: the sword's name is Andúril, dammit!)

It hurts, but I kinda want one anyway.

I'm just as glad. It already seems too close to blasphemy.

See "Narsil"... hmmm, use Google cache.
