Beecake, Monaghan, and Oscar Nominees: The One Expected Oscar Party Part II

The first part of the Space Pirate Queen’s and my epic Tolkien themed Oscar evening can be read here. This part, the second part, is about the live performances and guest appearances that followed the oh so delicious buffet and open bar at the American Legion Hall on Oscar Sunday. Yet again, this fantastic event was hosted by

The One Expected Party 2013

Ahh yes, Billy Boyd and Dominic Monaghan. The Space Pirate Queen and I are quite the Merry and Pippin fans, so seeing these two on stage interacting with each other was an absolute treat. As always, they were both delightful and thoroughly entertaining. I felt like it was 2003 again. Sigh.

Ep. 98 And We Complain About Google Hangout

In this episode, we go old school with Gizzy B and the Space Pirate Queen are left to their own devices. So they spend an hour of the podcast gushing about how amazing The One Expected Party was during Oscar night. Stalking Dominic Monaghan never gets old, apparently. Fanfic Theater: The Immortals.


I was rewatching the extended version of Return of the King tonight. The end still makes me a little teary, despite how many times I’ve read the book or re-watched the movie. Yeah. What. I love the damn series. Sue me.

Also, just to get it out of the way– NO, I am not Orlando-Bloom-crazed. I admit that he’s a fine young man with many upstanding physical qualities, but seriously not my type. Infact, I’ve had my eyes on the two actors who played my favorite hobbits: Dominic Monaghan and Billy Boyd. I decided to get on Google and searched for the big fansites to get news on Billy Boyd. Not quite so much on Dominic Monaghan because I basically know what he is up to (looking for another job after LOST and, uh, having all kinds of fun with his hot girlfriend, I’m pretty sure… they haven’t broken up, have they? ;]). I went and checked Boyd’s Official Site, and lo and behold… I discover his band, Beecake.

Yeah. I’m totally behind all the “Hobbit” news. Sorry. My bad.

I’m actually really excited that he’s pursuing his musical career. I love Billy singing. It’s one of my favorite scenes in Return of the King!

All right. I couldn’t have a geek blog without mention some Hobbit-love at one point. Check out Billy’s band.. and enjoy!
