    Heya!

    I think you're right. I have a hunch those two lines should read:

    "For home a song, that e'er goes on,
    And all who find us will know the tune."

    I'm excited for the movie. Hard to...

    Re: What are your favorite quotes in Lotr?

    In "Letters of JRR Tolkien" Tolkien himself says -- many times -- that this is his favorite scene. The one that would bring him to tears years later. A precious, fleeting chance that even Gollum...

    Re: What are your favorite quotes in Lotr?

    Re: Nice Edition of the LOTR Books

    Mine is the 50th Anniversary edition, and it's wonderful. The text was reworked with a fine-toothed comb with the help of Christopher Tolkien to try to weed out all the inconsistencies that crept in...

    Re: Silmarilion TV series

    I dunno. There's Huan, the ravaging hound of the Valar. Luthien going nuts on Sauron's Tower, the journey into the heart of Angband, Beren prying the Silmaril from Morgoth's own crown. The warg that...

    Re: Silmarilion TV series

    I go back & forth with whether I'd like to see Silmarillion on-screen. I honestly don't know how you make a movie with the cost needed and market it to a big enough audience without having a set of...
  9. Re: What part sticks out in your mind with LOTR?

    Yes! A goosebump moment, and I was so thrilled to find it in the extended version of the movies.

    I also love the moment when Theoden unleashes the Riders of Rohan at Pelennor Fields. The writing...

    Re: Best book to get next

    The Silmarillion is a great bet. But it can be a maddening read. It doesn't read like a story. It's a collection of snippets of "memories," cobbled together as best as possible by Tolkien's son...

    Re: State of in-game music

    Hear, hear. I have both the Lonely Mountain Band albums and love them. The latest album actually is a remake of LOTRO's Bree music. Good stuff.

    Re: State of in-game music

    I play little these days, but most every day I find myself humming one of the songs from Bree or the Shire. I even think of the lonely fiddling from Needlehole. Good memories of really fun (for me)...

    They survived. After the devastation at the end of the 2nd Age turned their fields into the Brown Lands, they migrated south to the strongholds of Gondor. Like the Ents, as the ages wore on they got...

    Re: Gondor and the Ring

    The Ring could be wielded by a mortal, which is why Sauron was so fearful when Aragorn challenged him (and beat him) by looking into the Orthanc Palantir. So fearful that he launched his attack early...

    Re: It's time to replace the forums.

    Funny. I have long-standing forum issues too. In fact, there's a new one today. I read (and posted to) a long thread yesterday in which the OP laid out thoughtful reasons for leaving LOTRO, and many...

    Re: Are Tolkien's stories morally simplistic?

    To the OP, my opinion is no, his stories aren't morally simplistic, and neither are his characters. In the entire Lord of the Rings the only character who stands out as one-dimensional to me is...

    Aragorn, Imladris, and The Hobbit

    Just occurred to me. Aragorn was born in TA 2931, and brought to Rivendell in 2933. Bilbo & the dwarves visit Rivendell in 2941. $5 says in the movie, we'll see a precocious & wise Dunedain boy in...

    Re: Narsil and Angrist

    IMHO, it's for the same reason that ultimately Frodo failed at the end to throw the Ring into the fire. Tolkien explains himself in several letters from the 50s and 60s -- there are things in this...

    It's always hardest to present "waves of internal fear" on-screen. (PJ, to me, came closest to it the very first time the Black Rider appeared in the Shire, and even the worms & insects crawled from...
