Stream of consciousness tweets as John Scalzi has an at-home movie marathon:
“The Mimes of Moria” is the name of my next band.
Wife is at a rock concert tonight. I’m watching cable TV at home. Thus are illustrated the differences between us.
OSHA clearly has no jurisdiction in Moria.

The Two Towers now I on. I hold the minority view that it is the best film of the trilogy.
That said, I’d’ve trimmed back the ent scenes pretty severely.
I SWEAR I did not realize I was making a tree pun in that last tweet.
I am suddenly aware of just how little difference there is between Orlando Bloom’s Legolas and certain sparkly vampires one could name.
Orcs vs. Stormtroopers. GO. On second thought, never mind. Neither side aims well enough for it to be interesting.

Fun fact: Shadowfax, the horse Gandalf rides, had a younger, hipper sibling named “Darktweet.”
I wonder what dentists think when they look at Orcs. I suspect “that’s a sailboat right there.”
They could have just distracted the Wargs by throwing a bunch of red bouncy balls and yelling “fetch.”
The orcs would be awesome in a Road Warrior movie. The orcs probably WERE in a Road Warrior movie.
