Re: Episode 5 (Spoilers, including discussion of the preview)

For what it's worth, "an ephemeral idea" is how Christopher described the idea that Gil-galad was Fingon's son ( HoMe XII, p. 351). When I said "I don't recall what that is" I was not referring to what the ephemeral idea was, which I do recall (and discuss at length in my book)....

Re: Episode 5 (Spoilers, including discussion of the preview)

I seem to recall something that indicated that they were using the "ephemeral" version, but I don't recall what it is that is.

Re: Episode 5 (Spoilers, including discussion of the preview)

I'll still wait and digest the Mithril-Silmaril bit and see how big of a thing they make it into eventually and how much of it is just shrugged off as an urban legend. To quote the book, the show hangs at the edge of a knife. Stray but a little and it will fail. I dunno, I feel like the in-universe...

Or, he and Gil-Galad have common roots from the First Age.

I saw this pointed out on Facebook. Look at their neck guards.

Re: Episode 5 (Spoilers, including discussion of the preview)

More from Dimitra Fimi on this episode, which captures my opinion very well. The bits I liked: 1. The Harfoot walking song: though the style was way too stereotypical of a tendency to flatten out + romanticise folk music, it fits that the hobbit ancestors have walking folk songs (lots of those in #L...

Re: 2020 Election: Predictions, Results and Reactions

Per stories in the Orlando Sentinel and Tampa Bay Times , three more people have been charged in this scheme, in which individuals were paid to be phony candidates in an effort to dilute the vote and help Republicans win. It is worth noting that while he is not under investigation in this case ( th...

Her Republican opponent, J.R. Majewski, is an election-denying, Trump-endorsed, QAnnon-supporting "U.S. army veteran and rapper," per Wikipedia, who has claimed that his service in the armed forces included a grueling stint in Afghanistan including a stretch of 40 days when he went withou...

Re: Episode 5 (Spoilers, including discussion of the preview)

This episode will probably have a lot of mixed reactions because it has some of the biggest and pointless deviations from Tolkien's texts - if true. I'm talking about the whole Silmaril-Mithril connection. BUT I do not know how much of that to actually believe as true. The very first thing that Elr...

Re: Rings of Power Reviews

Hidden behind a paywall for me unfortunately! Here ya go! Following years of speculation over its storylines, source material and the creators’ approach, the long-awaited The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power has finally landed. I admit to harbouring mixed feelings about the project. On the one...
