Here's some fun, Lord of the Rings related stuff that you should check out while wasting time online!
Awesome and epic video: Murmurs of Middle Earth
Silly video, should probably be viewed before the one above. They're Taking the Hobbits to Isengard!
On a less silly note, this is one of my favorite Tolkien-related fan made videos. Mostly because every time I hear this song, I think how awesome it would be with my Women of Middle Earth series. :D And it's a really well made little film. Towards the End.
Oh, and here's another excellent one focusing on the fading of the First Born and the rise of Men. Final Hour
And, as promised, a very funny Tolkien Inspired Mary-Sue Litmus test: Fear the Mary-Sue! Seriously, check it out, it's a bloody riot.
Here's an awesome video that my sister discovered, I really want a copy of this for my writing playlist! Lay of Nimrodel
And here is a lovely video of a beautiful rendition of my favorite of Tolkien's poems: The Fall of Gil-galad
I have far too many of these but this was just epic, a great blend of an awesome movie and an awesome musical: LOTR/Les Mis

Here are the name meanings of some of my OC's, the ones I can remember at least. ;) The pronunciations are how I say their names in my head, they may or may not be accurate by Tolkien's rules. If I've forgotten anyone that you're interested about, let me know!
-Amdis: (Am(as in "I am...")-dis)Possibly Sindarin, Liafael's little joke, likely a feminine variant of "Amdir" which is Sindarin for hope.
-Arasseth: (Ar-ah-seth) Sindarin, a combination of the elements "arass" meaning "deer" and the feminine ending -eth
-Aseawen: (Ah-see-a-wen)Honestly, she was named during the very first naming cycle before I had any idea about Elvish. A website told me it meant "Leaf maiden" and I believed them... never got around to changing her name even though I'm fairly certain it's not legit.
-Cenrick: (Ken-rick) (Variant on Kenrick/Kendrick) Old English meaning "Royal or bold power"
Gwaedhiel: (Gway-thee-el) Like Aseawen, this is from the first naming cycle. I was informed it meant "an oath" but I no longer believe that naughty source that seemed to enjoy lying to me... In actuality it could be a combination of the Sindarin "gwael" meaning gull and "iel" meaning daughter or "gwaew" meaning wind and "iel". But we're just going to pretend it still has something to do with oaths. ;)
-Iarthal: (Ee-ar-thel) A varition of the combination of the Sindarin words "ar" meaning "noble" and "thala" meaning "steady"
-Lomwe: (lowm-way) Sindarin, a combination of "lome" meaning "dusk" and the androgenous ending "we"
