MEDIA NEWS:

From Yahoo! Movies:
    ~Viggo Mortensen Reveals the Sweet Reason Behind Those 'Lord of the Rings' Reunion Photos
    Two weeks ago, pictures surfaced of some of the stars of the Lord of the Rings franchise reuniting for unspecified reasons -- leading us to surmise that it might be for an upcoming magazine photo shoot. Shortly after their debut, an accompanying video appeared on an Orlando Bloom Instagram fan site, implying that the former Middle-earth heroes had gotten together in order to do battle with a cave troll. But now, after much speculation, the truth about the gathering has finally been revealed, courtesy of Aragorn himself, Viggo Mortensen. [More]

COMMUNITY NEWS:

Note from the Mods: We would like to invite the moderators of other fandom communities to become 'reporters' or 'scouts' for middleearthnews. All we ask is that you send us formatted updates on your own communities for posting here.

From dreamflower02:
    ~Signal Boost: Shire Kitchen
    I am trying to revive the community shire_kitchen. I started out with a re-post of my B2MeM 2014 story "The Music of the Land."

    I know that lotr_community has had several of the monthly challenges that featured recipe!fics, and I'd love it if you have any recipe!fics if you would post them there. Also you can post any food related topics that might relate to Middle-earth by some stretch of the imagination! That could include recipes you've made up, or links to historical facts about food. It could also include pictures of dishes you've made or even your kitchen garden if you have one!

    If you have never been to the community (which would not be surprising since the last post was in 2011) you might want to check it out--we had an annual recipe!fic challenge from 2005 to 2010, and there are some great stories and recipes there.

    I hope you will check out shire_kitchen and consider joining the comm! [More]

    ~Mahanaxar: The Ring of Doom
    The Ring of Doom - also called Mahanaxar, in Quenya - was basically the Valar's throne room. Except, instead of a room, it was a circle of thrones set outside of the western gates of Valimar, the city of the Ainur in Valinor. [More]
