'Gondor has no pants. Gondor needs no pants.'

Did you know that there is a whole other world out there, existing in the same time and space as our own? This is the world of the People Who Think That Pants Should Be Introduced Into The Lord Of The Rings. After seeing these shots from the terrible cartoon version of the movie, I am inclined to agree with them. "Do not meddle in the pants of Wizards, for they are subtle and quick to anger."

The question asked throughout the ages

Perhaps you would like to help my sister and me out in the eternal debate: Which are cuter, Orcs or Uruk-hai?...

'Uncle! I'll nurse you back to health! With soup!'

Return of the King was The Book That Wouldn't End. The climax comes, then the book drags on forever, tying up millions of loose ends and telling you what everyone did for the rest of their lives. Even after taking out an important end sequence, Return of the King was The Movie That Wouldn't End. It was great, but the end was so very long and so very filmed in slow-motion. I also laughed inappropriately much too often, but that could be me. For example, I couldn't help but giggle every time Gondor's ridiculous helmets came onscreen. And seriously? They...

'Shall I describe it to you... or would you like me to go find you a box?'

I still haven't sat down to watch The Two Towers Extended Version. And I call myself a nerd! A nerd, perhaps, but a nerd in the crazed end-of-semester mode where I am perfectly willing to be distracted ALL the time, but can't in good conscience consciously commit to a four-hour distraction. In the meantime, I bring you this quote, which I think you should keep in mind whenever reading my blog or interacting with me in meatspace: "That doesn't make sense to me, but then, you are very small." - Treebeard...

Bring home my name/ on the wings of Gwaihir*

(listening to Neil Diamond as I get ready this morning) srah: I always want to sing this "Sar... Saruman" instead of "Soo... Soolaimon". (pause) srah: I am such a nerd. Mom: Well, from what I've heard, you're in good company at SI. srah: This is very true. Hopefully Return of the King will come out after all of our exams are done. Otherwise we're in trouble! Mom: Why's that? srah: Because no one will show up for class the next day! Mom: Oh. Well, that's okay. Your teachers probably won't either. ––––– * thanks to Mr B------ for the nerd-assistance...

Dream

What a dreamful week I've been having! I'm sure you don't care, but I like to record them and perhaps in reading them, you will realize exactly how bizarre things are in my head. First I was on a tour bus in England and Neil Dudgeon, John Hannah and Joanna Roth were there as well. Neil was right behind me, but the other two were way at the back of the bus. The tour guide announced that we weren't going to be able to watch the video she'd planned to show in the bus because she'd left it at the...

At the end of the journey

I have finished The Return of the King, the third part of The Lord of the Rings. All I want to know is if they found the Entwives. Is that too much to ask? Treebeard starts talking about them the first time he meets Merry and Pippin, then never shuts up, sounding for all the world Middle-earth like a horny, lonely old man. One of my goals in finishing the books was to read about the glorious reunion of the Ents and the Entwives, and the birth (planting?) of cute little Entlings. BUT NO. I'm going to dig up JRR...

Loverlas

I am reading The Lord of the Rings (well, The Fellowship of the Ring at the moment). I don't know if it has anything to do with the fact that we saw The Two Towers in Grenoble (in English!) or that I am just happy to have something new to read, but I am enjoying it more than I have on previous attempts. Maybe it's the fact that I read the Prologue and discovered that the book began as a linguistic guide to Middle Earth - a way of explaining all of the languages in The Hobbit. Speaking of the...

Jean Reno as romantic hero?

I went to the movies last night with Renata, Jennifer, Rachel and some of Rachel's French friends from the foyer. Ooh, alliteration. We went to see D├ęcalage horaire with Jean Reno and Juliette Binoche which, as I predicted, was a rather confused Franco-American mess, having been billed as the first French American-style romantic comedy. It didn't seem to know if it was French or American, and neither did Jean Reno's character, who kept throwing random English phrases into his dialogue and making the anglophones titter. All in all, it was rather amusing but nothing to write home about. Or write...

The Ring agin

I saw The Fellowship of the Ring for the FOURTH time this weekend. But we had to go to see it because they had a ten-minute preview for The Two Towers on the end of the film this time. I have ALWAYS cried when Sam chases after Frodo at the end. EVERY SINGLE TIME. The preview for The Two Towers looks really good. I am more excited about this one than Episode II or The Chamber of Secrets. Which is saying a lot, for a Star Wars/Harry Potter fan who has never read any of the Lord of the Rings...

Aragorn peeing on the floor

Boy, a subject like that just makes you want to keep reading, doesn't it? That or run screaming from the blog. Anyway, Laine over at Dear Mervis... is having fun with her Lord of the Rings-skinned Sims. And many other interesting Legolas-related things. Legolas is by no stretch of the imagination srah's type. And yet... mrrrrowwwrrrr......

If you insist

If you insist. You will marry LEGOLAS from Lord of the Rings, live in an ancient elven palace in the middle of the forest, and spend your days walking on top of snow and rowing ivory boats and just being beautiful. What's YOUR M * A * S * H future? [via not.so.soft]...

Went to see FOTR again

Went to see FOTR again, this time with my family. I cried when Sam came along with Frodo again. It seemed a lot scarier this time, because instead of having Mr Lord Of The Rings Expert with me, who knew the story and was just wondering how they'd express it, I had a four-year-old (who should not have been there) in front of me and my mother next to me, screaming and clutching my arm in terror when hobbits popped out of the corn fields. I was very impressed with the four-year-old. He held out for a long time. Before...

I cried and cried

I cried and cried during Fellowship of the Ring last night. This may have had something to do with my post office experiences and my lack of sleep, but anyway... It was very good and very epic. I was going to say "I especially liked..." but I especially liked everyone. A post about my study-abroad experiences will come during today's staff meeting, Krista. It seems like all they do around here anymore is have staff meetings....
