Wait a minute ...

You know, I've always been told that "Hell would freeze over before the New Orleans Saints won a Super Bowl."

The Saints won the Super Bowl on February 7, 2010.

On that same day, Washington DC was buried under several feet of snow; enough that the Federal Government was shut down.

By way of Peter over at Bayou Renaissance Man, we learn of a further adaptation of JRR Tolkiens work.

A lady in England, Kate Madison, has managed to film a story taken from -- literally -- two paragraphs in the first appendix of The Lord of the Rings, concerning the parents of Aragorn.

For being done on what Hollywood would consider to be an impossibly small budget, the film looks absolutely astonishing -- and it's been released on the Internet.

Born of Hope.

Bravo, Ms. Madison. Well done, indeed.
