brilliant.
:jealous:

It was far too fucking warm in Melbourne today. I dressed expecting 10, 11 tops, and got 18. The 7 minute walk from the railway station to the supermarket in the direct sun at 2:30 was not fun. I can't believe I easily broke into a sweat IN THE MIDDLE OF WINTER and wasn't even in Queensland.

Yes, yes you have.

The Children of Húrin - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Children of Húrin is an epic high fantasy novel which forms the completion of a tale by J. R. R. Tolkien. He wrote the original version of the story in late 1910s, revised it several times later, but did not complete it before his death in 1973. His son, Christopher Tolkien, edited the manuscripts to form a consistent narrative, and published it in 2007 as an independent work.

Ooooh THAT. I've seen that at bookshops; I'd just forgotten the title. May have to get a copy/borrow yours once you're done because I'm cheap.

Sure, not a problem. Don't hold your breath about me finishing it anytime soon though.

Hey, was it just me, or did anyone else watch Narnia: Prince Caspian and see it as a thinly disguised allegory about the Crusades and how wonderful militant Christianity is? In fact, the entire Narnia series is like that...

Children of Hurin is quite good, extremely confusing in the way only Tolkien can be in the beginning, but then the story starts and it makes sense.

Honestly, sometimes reading Tolkien's early chapters (like in the Silmarillion or Children of Hurin) is like reading the Biblical genealogies, except more confusing and without narrative sense.
That's about what I figured, too.

And Ax, I hope you got a photo of that rock you've been under.

18C... thought it was less bitterly freezing than usual.

*gone*

Yeah, and a few people excepted, I think most of us don't have a real problem with him and would like to be friends with the guy. I think he just needs to take a break for a bit first and work on things, rather than coming back to the threads the very day after leaving "forever".

I was wondering what was up with that book. I've seen it everywhere, and when I see the cover I half expect it to be a historical fiction set in ancient Greece, but with a somewhat fictional take on the armour by the cover artist. But no dice.

It was short sleeves weather if you were outdoors in Brunswick in the early afternoon, I assure you!

The same arguments arose when the first Narnia movie was released. You wouldn't expect this from me but personally I think people should just enjoy the goddamn movie. There are still a lot of people that don't get the Aslan/Christ connection, but it may be more blatant in Prince Caspian.
