I've been a Tolkien fan since Legolas' actor was in diapers, and I used to play Elrond on TV. Er, I mean, on the LOTR Plaza, an enormous Lord of the Rings / Hobbit fan community.

Two bookshelves worth of Tolkien's Middle-earth books plus multiple copies of the films suggest that my condition is incurable.

"Anything that Hobbits had no immediate use for, but were unwilling to throw away, they called a mathom."  (Prologue, The Fellowship of the Ring, J.R.R. Tolkien)

Some longtime Tolkien fans may recognize my old handle on the Lord of the Rings Plaza: Tinw Filigod.
