When asked whether or not he could, ‘I replied that I had never drowned and went back to my managers.’ Regardless of whether or not swimming was a factor, he knew that if he said he didn’t know how to swim he might not be given the part. So he just went with it.”

“This week, The Lord Of The Rings: The Rings Of Power will finally take us back to the Second Age, the era before The Lord of the Rings trilogy, and bring with it a new live-action version of the Middle-earth landscape.

So, before you dig into the two-part series premiere, we’ve put together a handy guide to some of the most important locations in Middle-earth (and beyond) during the Second Age, because there’s nothing worse than confusing your Eregions and your Rhovanions.”

Do you want to own every video game console ever made? Well, you can now, for a pretty penny.

“While many a collector can claim to have any number of rare video games and memorabilia, few, if any, actually own a majority of every console variation manufactured in the last 50 years. But that’s exactly what one France-based collector has just put up for auction, some 2,400 different consoles—from standard-issue to special editions to variations never officially for sale—for the cool asking price of €984,000, or around a million U.S. dollars.”
