        Isn’t there a Russian fantasy author who has written stories taking place in 4th Age Middle-earth? (Keeping a long distance)

        ...if so, I was blissfully unaware of it until just now.

      I really need to get to a computer so I can start up some Character threads... Definitely not thumb-typing those.

      Dumb q. Anyone know what it means when it say "Three parts of the people [performed some task]"? 3 parts out of how many?

      Ok so I'm vacationing and it seems like a longer delay than usual for podcast versions of Exploring and MA. Am I dreaming?

      Speaking of travels. The west coast of Vancouver Island is pretty great. Highly recommend. Feels First Age-y, pre-Moonrise.

        Yay! Might be a couple minutes late (I'll put my daughter on the school bus 6 minutes after start time, 3 minutes away from home), but that's practically early... haha

      I'm having some conceptual problems with Elf death and the Halls of Mandos.

        Additional places where information is blocked for narrative reasons that I have trouble reconciling:

        -The Noldor know absolutely zero about the state of Beleriand upon departing Valinor. Elves from Beleriand have been dying now and then (more dying or less dying depending on where in the timeline you put the first battles relative to the Oath)

        -Nobody really knows if the Avari even exist anymore. And once they meet up with the first Men, no hint of it emerges.

        Mandos knows a lot of things that he doesn't share with anyone. And none of the living are permitted to interact with the dead. So, the lack of information passing between the Halls of Mandos and the Noldor in Valinor isn't really an issue.

      That was a fun one. Turns out attending on time adds a lot to the experience.

        And now, instead of typing out my ideas while they are fresh, I am going to take my daughter out rollerblading. #parenting haha

      Had to rewatch Bakshi when I learned a new thing in the credits. Anthony "C-3P0" Daniels played Legolas...

      Watching the Bakshi LoTR movie (don't judge, it's fun). There's a throwaway scene in Lorien I looove. Legolas teaching Gimli to shoot a bow.

        I saw that movie as a kid (like 8?) and loved it (although the ending confused me). Some of the scenes are great, actually. There's something with the Nazgul that's really cool, I think.

        FUN! We're going on Sunday. Hot tip: the corn dogs from the stands with red/yellow signs are good. The corn dogs from the stands with green on the signs are less good.

      Lost my job of 7 years this week. We're fine, but my "PC with a real keyboard" time is diminished. Reading all things, thumb-typing rarely.

        They were having a heated argument. I couldn't hear well, but I could tell that one man was positing that "the new DC movies are the spiritual successor of fairy tales".

        I didn't catch all of the rebuttal, but I definitely heard "Tolkien" and "On Fairy Stories".
