HOBBIT SUPERSTARS TO RELEASE MOCKUMENTARY OF EPIC PROPORTIONS; OFFER CONCERTGOERS A SNEAK PREVIEW
LIVE SHOWS IN NEW YORK CITY, PROVIDENCE TO MARK RELEASE
Hobbit rap mega-stars Quickbeam and Bombadil, known throughout the lands as Lords of the Rhymes, will release ‘Lords of the Rhymes: Ye untolde tale’ next month, and will offer concertgoers a sneak preview of the film at their upcoming show at Lit on August 6.
The film — which details the rise to stardom, the music, the hype, the fans, and the secret lives of MCs Quickbeam and Bombadil — was originally slated for release in December of 2003 but hit numerous production snags along the way, including (but not limited to) earthquakes, fires, lightning, floods, plagues, toads, fleas, acts of god, and an unusually small rabbit. The epic 475-day shoot spanned 12 continents, involved thousands of unpaid migrant extras, and boasted a budget of at least 350 dollars. The shoot also had its effect on local economies — at one point the Lords had exhausted supplies of duct tape and cardboard within a 75 mile radius.
Director Curufin the Crafty – who, in editing the film, was driven to the brink of madness on at least seven occasions — was quoted as saying: “Its a larger than life film about two smaller than life hobbits. As a film, it is my life work, and into it I have poured my will, my spirit, and my very blood.” Mr. Crafty went on to say that he would consider doing a prequel if asked.
The Lords will celebrate the film’s release with a rollicking release party at Lit in New York City and a performance at Turbine Nation in Providence. The diminutive duo are known for their high energy live shows, which draw throngs of screaming fans and send elf-girls to their knees in fits of ecstatic weeping. When asked if this show will bring any new twists, gold-toothed rapper Bombadil replied:
‘Yeah, this time evil’s bringing a posse — and there’s gonna be a battle. A battle, in fact, to end all battles.’
