Isis Tweeted about this earlier in the week, but for those who missed it here's a truly brilliant live-action tribute to / remake of the opening sequence of the old Ulysses 31 cartoon.

It would look a lot better if I could work out how to embed the video...

That's just awoken strange, cozey Saturday morning memories from very early in my life.

That was so awesome!

I now have another use for our box grater :)

There is no way to embed videos in the site as it currently stands. Working on it when I gets the time...

Somewhere, an English teacher is sobbing quietly in a corner, as little Dickie Halpin goes more and more native as the days slip by. :)

You'll find that if you simply add "my Precioussss" to the end of Hal's comment it becomes much less of a problem ;-)

Sorry - I did watch all of the Lord of the Rings movies yesterday :)

Much to Lindsay's distress... :)

They still aren't as good as the book...

You know, I believe Tolkien wrote more than just the one book - or have you perhaps spent your entire quota of sibilants for the week? ;)

Depends on how you're defining book. If you go by the strictist meaning, LOTR is divided into the...six books of red...marsh? (Needs further researching). If you were to ask Tolkien though, he'd have probably said it was all one book that publishers made him split into three parts.

Unless you're talking about the Hobbit or Silmarillion, of which the movie for the former hasn't been shown in theatres yet and the later is doubtful movie property (it was doubtful book property), or other releases that have popped out in the last few years that are like 'We were totally written by Tolkien before he died and only editted by his son.', which...I haven't read and I'm skeptical about. Why didn't Christopher work on those books when he was editting the Silmarillion?

In any event, I believe refering to the LOTR as a single book is acceptable. It was meant by it's author to be one single publication.

Did he intend for it to be sold with a Saruman-esque lectern, or mayhap a little wheelie bin, so you wouldn't get a hernia trying to heft the massive lump of dead rain forest? ;)

Perhaps he was taking 'the pen is mightier than the sword' a bit too literally and was trying to make the best bludgeoning weapon ever.

Children of Húrin was a well done, if short, book. As to it's authenticity...it did have that certain quality seen in the Silmarillion, and ties in with that book very well. (Children, unlike the Silmarillion, is readable, too =))
