Re: Lord of the Rings series!?

Perhaps a memorial to Finrod? Not just Finrod! It’s beautiful! Has anyone on the interwebs complained yet about it not looking Tolkien? You mean this specific picture, which I took from a post on Facebook? The only negative comment was someone saying "Yea. But the looks of elves in this series...

We also have at least one shirtless dwarf. And check out the beard on the bald dwarf second from the right!

Re: Media previews

My speculation in AR was that Christopher did not want to spoil the suspense for when he got to Túrin's story.

Re: Media previews

That passage -- taken from the Grey Annals as it does not appear in the description of the Fifth Battle that appears in the Narn, which much of that chapter in the published Silmarillion is take from -- represents the culmination of the evolution of the Dwarves from the almost entirely evil creature...

Re: Lord of the Rings series!?

For the record, I completely concur, and always had the same reaction.

Re: Lord of the Rings series!?

Out of curiosity, why do you "vastly prefer the idea of Gil-galad as an Arafinwean?"

Re: Lord of the Rings series!?

Maybe. That raises the question of whether they will address Gil-galad's genealogy. Will they go with the "ephemeral ideal" of Gil-galad as Fingon's son, as adopted in the published Silmarillion, or the later idea of Gil-galad as Finrod's nephew (or great-nephew)?

Re: The Tolkien Translation Game!

Of course. :) Since we are not likely to hear any line like that in the new show.

Re: The Russia Investigations and other Trump-related cases

Turning back to the search of Mar Lago, while we still really don't know why they executed the search warrant, we certainly do know why they did it when they did it. The Justice Department has a longstanding policy not to take politically sensitive actions within 90 days of an election. The search w...

Meanwhile,

Appeals court says House can obtain Trump's taxes from the IRS

Still not the end of the line, as he can try to appeal to the SCOTUS. Even if they don't take up the case (which I don't think they will) they can sit on it indefinitely.

Re: The Russia Investigations and other Trump-related cases

To the best of my knowledge, there are no criminal penalties associated with the Presidential Records Act, so the search is likely not associated with just that.
