One Last Time, The One Last Party

One Last Party 2015

“All’s well that ends better.”

TheOneRing.net hosted the last Oscar party for fans of the Lord of the Rings/The Hobbit movies this past weekend at the American Legion in Hollywood.  Traditionally, the fan parties took place during Oscar night so we can all gather and watch the award show together. This year, the party took place the night before the show on Saturday and I think it is because The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies didn’t get nominated for any categories this year. Boo-urns, Academy Awards!

Either way, it didn’t stop the fans from gathering to appreciate our fandom for one night together in fancy dresses and dwarf gear.

Wrapping It Up in 2014: Year in Review

2014yearinreview

Defective Geeks has survived (kind of, sort of?) another year of random geek shenanigans and once again, I wanted to highlight some of our accomplishments. This year was a bit more mellow than 2013 was but we got to experiment with bringing new content to the website with the help of friends. I would like to thank everyone who has stopped by to read a blog, watch a video or simply stumbled upon a photo on a post that they really liked (I see those tweets go out!).

For the people who have always supported us, especially those who remind us all the time that we are loved… THANK YOU!

Now let’s get on with our year in review.

Podcast2013-web-image

In this episode the girls discuss all the recent movie trailers including The Hobbit, Tusk, and most importantly 50 Shades of Grey (don’t deny it, you’re excited too). Then SPQ and Gizzy B discuss the emotional fangirl tears they experienced in Hall H at SDCC during the Marvel panel. Also, raccoons the size of grizzly bears? What??

One Dragon, One Party 2014

One Dragon, One Party

Compared to last year’s extravagant event, this year’s Oscar party hosted by TheOneRing.net was a much more casual and low key event. That didn’t stop us from putting on our wannabe-red-carpet outfits and braving the traffic in Los Angeles! Apparently, all the streets are closed when the celebrities are strutting their way down the red carpet. This year’s party was held at the Cat & Fiddle pub and restaurant, just a few blocks away from the ceremony.

Fanart Glee: Tauriel and Kili

Hobbit Denial Pyramid by skart2005 on deviantART

Now, I know this is a controversial topic and most of all, a very controversial pairing (though most people seem to accept the Gimli and Legolas shipping a lot more) but I loved Tauriel in The Hobbit and I loved that Kili had a huge crush on her.

Also read, New OTP: Tauriel and Kili by Gizzy B.

Let’s face it. As much as we love the original book, The Hobbit was a bro show. Which is fine for the book and nothing will ever change or re-write that classic piece of literature but in my growing adult years, I find that accepting the fluidity of media makes my life that much easier.
