LORD OF THE BLING-BLING
all singin', all dancin'
It's gonna be Middle Earth mania on London's fabled West End as Tolkein's Lord of the Rings trilogy will be adapted to the stage as a "lavish musical".

Golly, I wish I knew more about LOTR, so that I could really riff some jokes off this. I think I saw the original 1978 animated version (some really interesting trivia behind that one) when I was a kid, but it never really captured my imagination. My loss, I suppose.

Screw that "lavish musical" crap. If they insist on embarking on this madness, I say they should go all the way and make it a hip-hop/rap musical! Lord of the Bling-Bling, baby! "Who's the man? Saru-man!" It'd be the shizzle, drizzle.
