The most terrible thing you will ever see is just a click away…

This is terrible. Awful. Hideous.
And perfectly hilarious.
If that link works…
Man, that is so stupid.

Somehow I just can’t picture that.

Ash Nazg…

I have almost finished The Return of the King. The most wonderful series I have ever read. I am going to go finish the book. My word, I just can’t stop thinking about The Lord of the Rings! J.R.R. Tolkien is one of the best authors that ever wrote.
Guess what the title means. Get out your trilogy and try to decipher it. Comment with your ideas. :P

The Road Goes Ever On and On…

My mom has two copies of a book by Donald Swann. The Road Goes Ever On: A Song Cycle. This book is filled with tunes for Tolkien’s songs, from
The Lord of the Rings trilogy. My mom has been waiting twenty years to find someone that loves these songs like her, and now she has…ME!
Actually, Donald Swann wrote the tunes, and then Tolkien approved them, even gave a few suggestions.
Right now, I am learning to play a song that Treebeard sings. With it’s low octaves, it’s incredibly Entish. I took it to church to show some people, and then the pastor came over, and he and a few others made me play the Ent song as far as I could, and then Mom had me sing some of “I Sit Beside the Fire.”
Our grand piano at church has a wonderful deep resonance, and it was perfect for “In the Willow-meads of Tasarinan,” which Treebeard sings in The Two Towers.
These aren’t peiced from the movie, mind you. I wish they had used these in the movie, they are beautiful. One of my favorites is “In Western Lands.” In The Return of the King, Sam is alone and filled with despair, and he sings this to himself. It is the only thing that keeps him from giving up, thinking of the Shire, and singing…
Here is a link to a site that should show you what the book looks like. The music shown is “Errantry” and I think Tom Bombadil sings it.
“Namarie” or farewell, is all in Elvish. I don’t know the tune, but I have the first two lines memorized. Wish I could get accents and umlauts.
“Ai! Laurie lantar lassi surinen
Yeni unotime ve ramar aldaron!”

It’s a bit like a gregorian chant.

I am having a family birthday party today. I guess I am going to be fourteen. Seems…well, I guess it’s just weird. I think I said earlier that I always used to ask my dad impossible questions, and he would say, “I will tell you when you are older.” Well, I always thought that a big kid was either nine or fourteen, not at all sure why, but I did. Apparently it wasn’t nine, so this year I am officially older. It’s kind of sad.
I must be though. I have grown about eight inches since fifth grade. I was 4′5″ then, now I am 5″1′.
I feel tall.

A Elbereth Gilthoniel

A Elbereth Gilthoniel,
Silivren penna miriel
O menel aglar elenath!
Na-chaered palan-diriel
O galadhremmin enorath,
Fanuilos, le linnathon
nef aear, si nef aeron!

Swifteye47: I think, in a way, it is easy not to belive when you are that age.
Swifteye47: basically, when you are a teen, you are just discovering your own beliefs, and it can be exciting to realize that now you are really choosing your own path. It’s easy to get caught up in something you don’t really understand, and not see that you don’t know enough to have a true opinion. I say this knowing that the only reason I know enough to have a true opinion is because I know I have chosen the right way. But then, how do I know I have chosen the right way?
Swifteye47: I just realized that I don’t know enough to defend myself.
Swifteye47: Someone might be close to coming to God, and then get away again, because I couldn’t defend myself.
Swifteye47: Better get studying

I just had a conversation, and realized it was mostly with myself. It’s something to work on, I think. I assume that by sheer will power I can convince…well, no, people aren’t like that. They want substance…not just pretty air castles.

Lord of the

Hello, just thought I would let you know that my friend emailed me and corrected a few things I said about The Lord of the Rings in my critisisms, and reminded me that there is one more thing I really really disliked:
Merry and Pippin let themselves be captured in order to save Frodo. In the book, he is not seen by anyone until Sam catches on and finds him.

Don’t get me wrong.
