5 Minutes of Fame... Literally. has given me the ever so coveted 5 minutes of fame that so many Tolkien fans seek. On their latest episode of Hobbit in 5, they featured one of our Road to the Shire background images, and made may day. We are not just speaking of any ordinary image either. It is beautifully framed with me looking slightly to the left, as if something glorious is happening over there. Plus, sharing the screen with Rebekah Platt and her Pac Man shirt was stellar. Thank you Hobbit in 5!

The Land of M.E.N. (Middle Earth News)

"Meet the Hobbits Behind 'Road to the Shire' in our Exclusive Interview," their words, not mine. Although it would have been hilarious to record our own interview and pass it off as legitimate, this actually did happen. The producers at Middle Earth News, Tracking All Things Middle Earth, asked us for am exclusive interview. We didn't want the attention so we declined the generously placed offer... PSYCHE! We were thrilled and jumped at the opportunity. So read up on it, mate. Follow the link, Exclusive MEN Interview, and enjoy. 

No girls, it's not a 100 hottest Men interview, no Gyllenhaal, Pitt or Reynolds. And guys, don't let your buddy see you clicking on a link with such a title, eh?

The Provo Outsource

Road to the Shire is designed to succeed if the fans want it to. Olo, Toad, and myself, of course are not going to rest until we get back to the Shire, but the promptness with which our journey takes place is in your hands not ours.
We recognized early on in this process that we needed as much help as we could get. Thus far, we have been graced by the presence of professional actors, dancers, singer/song writers, rappers, voice recorders, and several more. This post goes out to one of these talented individuals who played Polando the Blue Wizard in our trailer video. Thanks again Critter.
