Is it just me, or is it becoming increasingly impossible to keep waiting for “The Hobbit” to hit theatres? Cue overly dramatic, inner nerdling reaction here:
The amazing people of the internet are not making this process easy either. Just a few days ago, I came across this glorious Hobbit-Goonies mash-up made by YouTuber Lance Ford. Today, the Internet has presented us with “Unlikely Quotes From The Hobbit An Unexpected Journey Official Parody 2012.” That was a mouthful. But it’s worth every second.
In the video, made by Octavarius Comedy, Gandalf, Thorin, and Bilbo Baggins go on an unexpected journey to what appears to be a city. Misery ensues — but along the way, the characters basically namedrop a bunch of famous movie quotes and characters that would never, ever be mentioned in the real film. Not even you, Lord Voldy. The characters also use some pretty explicit language that I think would only send fans into fits of laughter if they were included in the actual film. The parody is just making it that much harder to wait for the film to come out. But I’m glad the wonderful people of the internet are doing what they do best.

In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, Jennifer Lawrence gets in a fender bender because she thought she saw Honey Boo Boo and One Direction calls Piers Morgan stinky.
HIT: Jennifer Lawrence car accident caused by wishful Honey Boo Boo thinking
With each and every uninhabited Jennifer Lawrence interview, the actress continues to give us more and more reasons to love her. This week, The Hunger Games starlet had to explain how she rear-ended a family in Georgia because she thought she saw Honey Boo Boo. On the 0.00001 per cent chance Lawrence reads this, we can totally be BFFs, nerd out on Harry Potter and watch Here Comes Honey Boo Boo together. Call me!
MISS: CNN’s Piers Morgan vs. One Direction
On the heels of the news that David Beckham was leaving the L.A. Galaxy, CNN’s Piers Morgan tweeted, “No serious top flight team would sign Beckham for football reasons any more- he should retire gracefully.” 1D’s Liam Payne and Harry Styles harmlessly replied to Morgan saying that Beckham is their hero. Apparently, that was enough for Morgan to throw in a couple of unwarranted 1D quips of his own, including a suggestion that Beckham should join the group and Harry should grow a pair. Was it a feeble attempt on Morgan’s part to finally get some publicity in America since joining CNN? Maybe, maybe not. But we do know the boys got the last laugh as #PiersMorganisSmelly trended on Twitter.
HIT: Journalists go crazy on 777 tour
Hands down some of the best stories of the week had to be the ones filtering out of the 777 Boeing airplane Rihanna and her crew hired to take her, 150 or so journalists and fans to seven cities in seven days for her 777 tour (see where she’s going with the 7s?). While the singer stayed up till 6 a.m. slinging out shots from behind the bar, some music journalists were going crazy due to lack of sleep and access to the singer. During one airplane ride, a radio DJ from Australia went streaking down the airplane aisles to the delight of his tired and frustrated peers. Another reporter, this time from GQ, somehow managed to keep typing a story out on his laptop even though he was falling asleep. At the end of the tour on Tuesday, Rihanna apologized for her absence and mentioned that she would do it all again (I can hear the invitations being ripped apart now).

If you, like me, indulge in marathon weekends of watching The Lord of the Rings trilogies roughly once a year, you’re probably incredibly excited for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. Bilbo Baggins journeys to the Lonely Mountain on a hunt for stolen treasure with a bunch of Dwarves. Although the new trailer is only a little more than two-minutes in length, the Peter Jackson-directed movie looks like it will include all the stunning cinematography and realistic CGI effects we’re used to.
The film stars Elijah Wood, Martin Freeman, Evangeline Lilly, Cate Blanchett, Ian McKellen and Orlando Bloom and will be out on Dec. 14.
