In a flash of midnight


In a flash of midnight shift brilliance, Senor Ligtvoet and Schapansky have come up with Lord of the Blings: The Brotherhood of the Bling. That’s right, an all-black cast for the greatest trilogy of films ever made. 🙂 Kind of like “The Wiz”, except actually cool and without Diana Ross or Micheal Jackson. In other words, nothing at all like the Wiz. 🙂 I laughed my ass off when I read this, and I hope you all will too. My personal favorites are Ice-T as Grima Wormtongue and Denzel as Aragorn.
