Happy birthday to opposer of social injustice and chronicler of English culture, George Orwell. We all know ANIMAL FARM and 1984(both scarily relevant today), but why not take a look at some or Orwell’s lesser known works and get in the socialist spirit.
Did you know that if you search for the word “Blue” in netflix, you will see some blue smudges and even a blue hand on the results page.

Middle-Earth seems like it’s a pretty happening place: plenty of exotic locales to explore, elves handing out gifts, trees to ride when your footses ache, and treasure available only to those courageous enough to take it.
