Super Real Mahjong OVA

I got the OVA just to see what it was like, and to see if the vocal music was in it.

I’m not sure what I expected, but seeing Kasumi getting incredibly excited over Michael J. Fox on the back cover of Cock Sucker Magazine has surpassed all my expectations.

Now presenting, in its full, complete, and downloadable glory, the Racism and Middle Earth series! This six part guide to Tolkien and Racism collects relevant tidbits from Tolkien’s own writings (from the most familiar to the most obscure) in order to highlight what the most problematic and the most potential-ridden parts of Middle Earth are, and outlines how we, as fans, can make Middle Earth a better place for characters of all ethnicities.

Each chapter is summarized in the photos above. The series can be downloaded as a .pdf, .ibook, or text-only .pdf (warning: the text version is not pretty, and is missing some important maps, so use only as a last resort.) I’ve also got a list of articles, essays, and blog posts on the subject of Middle Earth and racism here, for anyone wanting to learn more, or just looking for a different perspective/take on the issue. 

(For those who read the original blog posts, there have been a few changes to this final version - mainly additions made to Part I.)

Answer
  • Question: Hello! I just discovered this blog recently and I am amazed by all that you've written about Arda! I was just wondering (and I'm sorry that this is a really personal question) what religion you are, if anything? I only ask because I've seen you talk about Catholicism in some older posts, and sometimes your information isn't really accurate (i'm Catholic myself), and I wondered where you got your information, or experience, with Tolkien's religious beliefs? Thanks! - Anonymous

    askmiddlearth:

    I am Catholic, actually. My whole family’s Catholic, and I spent 16 years in Catholic school, so the majority of my information about Catholicism comes from a combination of my own experience, talking to my much-more-actively-religious relatives, and years and years of religion/theology classes.

    The reason you’re probably feeling disconnected to some of what I’ve written about Catholicism is that, while it professes to be the “universal church”, Catholicism actually varies widely among its believers, both geographically and historically. Tolkien’s religion was hugely different from our’s (least of all because of Vatican II). And my experience with Catholics from other regions has shown me how different Catholicism is, on a day-to-day level, for people in different countries and cultures.

    Finally, there is quite often a huge divide between “what the Catholic Church teaches” and “what Catholics actually believe.” There are, of course, many devout Catholics (like Tolkien) who basically follow the Church’s doctrine perfectly. But then there are others (like, honestly, myself, a self-professed Cafeteria Catholic), who don’t necessarily adhere to a lot of the Church’s teachings (especially when it comes to social/moral issues.) I try, when talking about Tolkien’s religious beliefs, to specify that what I’m writing about is this first category, the “official” Catholic stance on various issues - to try and write anything about what Catholics believe, as a whole, would be an impossible task, just as trying to generalize the beliefs of any large cultural group.

people that would be stunning at playing Doctor Strange:

  • Alexander Siddig
  • Pedro Pascal
  • Oded Fehr

  • Jeff Goldblum

people that would be stunning at playing Namor:

  • Daniel Dae Kim


If Daniel Dae Kim actually played Namor, Namor would finally be as handsome as he thinks he is.

My ideal Namor would be Bruce Lee, but he is sadly no longer with us.
