I love candlelight dinners, long walks on the beach and killing demons. Usually you can find me at rock concerts. 90% of redditors believe me to be male. I'm pretty sure I'm Loki.

One thought on “Nerdy News: March 2013

  1. There is also a rumor highlighted by theonering.net that Peter Jackson may be directing Star Wars VIII.

    I hope that the link functions adequately. It’s a screenshot of the script from a video in which he was answering questions about The Hobbit. Let me know if you’d like a link to the actual video.
