Re: Media previews

Was the preview shown of the first two episodes? First I have heard of it.

Is the translation fairly accurate?

Re: Lord of the Rings series!?

Saw this on Facebook. There was no link and no original French text, so I have no idea whether it is real, or accurate. Seems to be, though. ETA: Here's the original: https://image.noelshack.com/fichiers/2022/32/5/1660298069-img-20220812-061125.jpg French interview with John Howe about his work on t...

Re: Trump Espionage and Obstruction Investigation

It gets even crazier. John Solomon is now claiming: New twist in FBI raid: Trump had 'standing order' to declassify documents taken to residence Think about what this claim means. They are now claiming that any material, no matter how sensitive, automatically became unclassified as a result of being...

Re: Trump Espionage and Obstruction Investigation

As I think I might have said before, there are two problems with the argument that Trump declassified everything. First, it is not sufficient to just say that he declassified everything; there is a process that needs to be followed, which was never followed. He can't declassify things now that he is...

The Chronology of the Lord of the Rings

Tolkien Studies has just published a special issue devoted entirely to a special work: "The Chronology of the Lord of the Rings" edited by William Cloud Hicklin contains a full transcript and commentary of Tolkien's notes as he worked out the timeline of the Lord of the Rings. Some here m...

Re: Lord of the Rings series!?

ETA: But Maedhros being their foster father was somewhere in my brain, and I just realized that in the earliest version of the story, that was the case. From HoMe, vol. IV, ‘Quenta Noldorinwa (Q1)”: “But Maidros took pity upon her child Elrond, and took him with him, and harboured and nurtured him,...

Re: The challenges ahead (Biden's America)

I meant to respond to this earlier, but most if not all of the groups cited in that article are genuine, if rather radical, progressive groups. I question their conclusion that the bill will do more harm than good, but share some of the concerns that they express. In any event, the House passed the ...

Re: Trump Espionage and Obstruction Investigation

Never, because even if Trump as Commander in Chief was subject to a military tribunal (which I doubt), this is involves conduct when he was a private citizen. The only way it would become a matter for a military tribunal would be if active military officers were implicated. The only two people that ...

Re: Media previews

It being my site doesn't give me the right to make someone else feel bad. Again, that was not my intention, and if I had known that would happen I would have stayed silent.

Re: Media previews

I certainly did not mean to insult you, or add to your stress. Both you and SW strongly asked that I respond and I did so to the best of my understanding of what Tolkien wrote, what he intended, and how I interpret it. I wish that I had just stayed silent.
