    I might be confusing the books with the movies, but I seem to recall 42 was the final body count during the contest between Gimli and Legolas.
    Today is a good day for Pie.

    You've got it again triple-bam (or is it triple-bu?).

    Check out this art...http://www.matthew-stewart.com/portfolio/single-gallery/14447873



    "..and beside them walked Gimli the dwarf. He had no helm, and about his head was a linen band stained with blood; but his voice was loud and strong.


    'Forty-two, Master Legolas!' he cried. 'Alas! My axe is notched: the forty-second had an iron collar on his neck. How is it with you?"

    Beautiful artwork, I especially like the painting of Gandalf, very evocative.

    Just out of curiosity, what does Caradhras have to do with Snow? It literally means Red Horn. Red Thorn would have made a lot more sense as a clue, now is pretty misleading. I'll give you thorn/horn.

    How's about Eärendil and Elwing with their story of the silmaril. It was carried by Elwing to Eärendil and later set to path in the sky?

    Yeah I could see how that would be confusing, but what was the main reason that the fellowship could not go through the Red-Horn pass? Snow

    and for my answer to the riddle is it Tuor?

    None of the answers in line with what I'm lookin for so far.

    A lil hint: think less literal and more poetic.

    "They rolled the Man slowly up the hill
    and bundled him into the Moon,
    While his horses galloped up in the rear,
    and the cow came capering like a deer,
    and a dish ran up with a spoon"

    (quite a send off, reminds me of last Friday)

    Boraxxe is the closest so far. He has the right speaker.

    Is it Frodo's gift from Galadriel, the phial with the light from Earandil's star? A pretty celestial send-of gift

    I could drop another hint here, but it still might take y'all all day and night to get it...

    Is it:
    "May the wind under your wings bear you where the sun sails and the moon walks," answered Gandalf, who knew the correct reply.

    Thanks. The phrase felt quite poetic. next is:

    Rock´n roll

    (i feel that if - works the ' should be acceptable)

    Official ruling on the use of ' to join words so as to qualify as one word: technically the phrase you have relayed is "rock and roll", though it has often been abbreviated as you have done. What you are suggesting would actually be an abbreviated form of "Rockin' roll".

    However, since today is the anniversary of the first day that I wore a tie-dyed shirt, I am feeling quite magnanimous

    Clue accepted (this one time) as a two-word clue.

    Two guesses.

    1. Is it Thorin and Company playing their instruments in Bilbo's house? (The Hobbit book, song played was 'Far Over the Misty Mountains Cold'.
    2. Is it the songs of the Ainur?

    neither.

    Yo, Boraxxe, I know that ' is for genitive or cases eg: it's, I'm, he'd.
    which of these would be more justified: Rock'n'roll, Rock´n Roll, Rock'n Roll, or something else (your point of view)

    Tour name: "the Route of the Ring" starts in Hobbiton September 22, ends in New Mordor March 25. Tour sites include include e.g. Fangorn on February 29 and Ithilien March 7.

    but it's not the answer to this trivia clue

    My choice would be rock'n'roll

    But, any old way you choose it,
    It's got a backbeat, you can't lose it.

    Was it the rock rolling on the goblins during the Hobbit movie when they were in the Goblin-King's lair?
