Morning Roundup: Band Nerds and LOTR Nerds Finally Together In Musical Harmony

This Tuesday, we invite you to extend the game started by this poster from Tone Deaf. Here, they’ve attributed Lord of the Rings characters to various band instruments. Now, we’d like you to do the same thing with characters from Tron and Uno cards! Is Flynn a Wild or Wild Draw 4? Do you have to say “Tron!” before putting down your last card or “End of line?” We’ll leave you to decide.

We’ve also wrangled some nice offiste links for you.

Highlights include:

  1. A place to buy the above poster.
  2. Harrison Ford Blade Runner 2 rumblings.
  3. The re-telling of The Death and Life of Superman you didn’t know you needed.

Every day Stubby the Rocket jets around the internet looking for links of interest. When Stubby finds these links, they get put in our handy Links of Interest section and sometimes on our Twitter and Facebook! Here are today’s:


Stubby the Rocket is the voice and mascot of Tor.com. If Stubby the Rocket were a band instrument thing it would be the director’s baton, because Stubby has you all in check.

I think that was Lewis Carroll and not C. S. Lewis?

the one thing better than Tron Uno? WOT Uno, although to be fair that mostly just involves cursing uncontrollably. Also you don't have to be down to one card to start.

While he has one or two good points (the death of death being the only one I can think of), the Death of Superman video is pretty terrible overall. Opening with the tired line "nobody cares about Superman because he's not interesting" is a great way to lose the interest of people who care about Superman because he's interesting.
