Another Taylor Swift parody: We are never ever beating Sauron together

Sometimes things just snowball.

So, in the name of procrastination and work avoidance, here’s another (our last, honest!) Tolkien-style parody of a Taylor Swift song. This time we’re riffing off a little tune (you may have heard of it) called We are never, ever getting back together.

This parody is 90% the sterling work of Barlichatter Elanesse — particularly the quite tricky verses. I just provided the backing vocals, as it were. (more…)

Hall of Fire chat today: The Tale of Aragorn and Arwen

Barliman's Chat It resides mostly in Appendix A of Lord of the Rings, yet the story it tells reveals key parts of Aragorn’s character in The Lord of the Rings.

It is, of course, The Tale of Aragorn and Arwen — the Hall of Fire topic for later today.

‘For a moment Aragorn gazed in silence, but fearing that she would pass away and never be seen again, he called to her crying, Tinúviel, Tinúviel! even as Beren had done in the Elder Days long ago.

Then the maiden turned to him and smiled, and she said: “Who are you? And why do you call the by that name?” (more…)

The tragedy of Gilraen, Aragorn’s mother

Aragorn at Gilraen's grave I quite enjoyed this short piece explaining the sacrifice that Gilraen, the mother of Aragorn, makes for her people. There’s also a bit of linguistic geekery for the word nerds. Enjoy. (more…)
