"I have recently purchased The Letters of J.R.R. Tolkien, it is an outstanding book for those who want to know more about the man. Though I was surprised about his loathing of Disney; it mad me laugh so hard. Could you imagine what the movies would…"
"I am so exicted for this movie, but as much as I want to like this look for Thranduil, I just CAN'T. The first thing I thought was his crown looked like something a Vegas show girl would wear (I always thought of it as more of a wreath). His…"

"From the Gate of Kings the North Winds rides,
And past the roaring falls;
And clear and cold about the tower its loud horn calls.
“What news from the North, O mighty wind,
Do you bring to me today?
What news of Boromir the Bold?
For he is long away.”
“Beneath Amen Hen I heard his cry. There many foes he fought.
His cloven shield, his broken sword,
They to the water brought.
His head so proud, his face so fair, His limbs they laid to rest;
And Rauros, folden Rauros-falls, bore him upon its breast.”
“O Boromir! The Tower of Guard shall ever northward gaze
To Rauros, golden Rauros-falls, until the end of days."
