And I made it to the end of National Blog Posting Month! *throws confetti*
A question for you Tolkienists--any suggestions for the term for an individual from Harad? I could not find an attested singular form for Haradrim (or for other plurals of that declension, like Galadhrim). Some gamers use "Harad" which sounds a little silly since it means simply "South." I'm tempted to create my own word following the form of Dunadan/Dunedain (West Man/ West Men). The singular form "Haradan" would be a shortened version of the original (and difficult to say) "Haradadan." Though I could always fall back on "Southron." Thoughts?

My story update will be a few days late. But it's not my fault. It is the fault of [livejournal.com profile] blslarner. I've been engrossed in her story Murder Most Foul. She retells a famous real-world murder investigation using post-Ring War Gondor as the setting. A disturbing story that is even more disturbing when you consider that it is based on real events.

Please leave other suggestions in the comments. Note that unless I make pie for these people, we will be forced to eat store-bought pie.

The tenth anniversary of the premiere of The Fellowship of the Ring is next month. Is anyone aware of any fannish anniversary celebrations?

I clearly remember watching the teaser trailer on the computer. "This could be good or very, very bad," Lord Branwyn remarked. Due to recent advances in CGI, we were cautiously optimistic. When the trailer ended, I felt stunned and then wildy excited. We both took the day off from work so we could see it on the opening day. [Edit: Lord Branwyn reminds me that we went to the midnight showing, slept in the next day, and then went to see it a second time. Those were happy times.]

Lord Branwyn and I had a hobbit breakfast this morning at the local First Watch restaurant--sauteed mushrooms topped with cheese, eggs, hashbrown potatoes, and English muffins. Nom.

I was discussing "A Game of Thrones" with Lord Branwyn (who bought it in an airport years ago, started reading it and never finished). When I said the author's name, it came out something like "George Arrrarrrhh Martin" which made me laugh because I sounded like a pirate. Then Lord Branwyn pointed out that Martin's name was no funnier than "J. Arrrrarrrh Tolkien." Though those two initials are about all the two authors have in common. Martin is the anti-Tolkien.

My favorite is the early 80s version (at 3:15).
