Tolkienmas Tale-ol 3: “Return of the King”

To finish commemorating Peter Jackson’s Tolkien films in appropriately festive fashion, I offer a song about “Return of the King,” to be sung to the tune of “Angels We Have Heard On High.”

 

“Aragorn we have Crowned on High”

 

Mordor we have breached, today.

Brought the Ring to Mount Doom’s fires

And Gollum’s bite has torn away

Sauron’s hold on our desires.

 

Burn, in the fiery chasm

Burn, in the fiery chasm

 

 

Now heroes claim victory,

Now Lord Sauron’s lost his ring.

And by Gondor’s flowering tree,

Aragorn is crowned the king.

 

Aragorn, is the king of Gondor

Aragorn is the king of Gondor

 

 

Hobbits their way home do wend,

For their Shire has been saved.

Fellowship’s quest is at an end,

Just goodbyes still must be braved.

 

Frodo sails into the west

Frodo sails into the west

Frodo sails into the west.

One Rune to find them

I have been making bindrunes lately, and decided to create a separate blog to discuss runes, bindrunes, and other spiritual matters at:  http://onerunetofindthem.wordpress.com/  It can be reached from the wheresmytower@wordpress.com homepage by left-clicking on the image in the right corner.  I hope anyone with thoughts or interest in the runes or tarot will drop by and maybe share some of their thoughts on working with them.

 

One rune to find them,

One rune to bring them all

and in the magick bind them.

King Richard III’s bones recovered?

 

BBC News – Richard III dig: ‘Strong evidence’ bones are lost king.

 

“A university spokesperson said the evidence included signs of a peri-mortem (near-death) trauma to the skull and a barbed iron arrow head in the area of the spine.

Richard [III] is recorded by some sources as having been pulled from his horse and killed with a blow to the head.

The skeleton also showed severe scoliosis – a curvature of the spine.

Although not as pronounced as Shakespeare’s portrayal of the king as a hunchback, the condition would have given the adult male the appearance of having one shoulder higher than the other.”

 

“The [DNA] tests are expected to take about 12 weeks to complete.

If their identity is confirmed, Leicester Cathedral said it would work with the Royal Household, and with the Richard III Society, to ensure the remains were treated with dignity and respect and reburied with the appropriate rites and ceremonies of the church.”

The last Stuart King’s bones may just have been found beneath a Leicester council carpark.  There are definite plans to treat Richard III’s remains with belated respect and a royal Westminster burial, whenever they are actually found.  The ides of September, the half-birthday of the ides of March, may give back the body of a great war leader.  I feel like the War of the Roses just really ended.  Huzzah!

Batman to Joffrey

 

Geekasaurus Rex, mountainduwe: FFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUU— Oh my gods. .

 

From geekasaurus rex and tumblr: the real reason behind Joffrey’s psycho-ness, as foreseen by me in my review: https://wheresmytower.wordpress.com/2012/08/24/garden-of-bones-got-2×4/!  He knew Christian Bale also starred in American Psycho and thought so long as he did SOMETHING Bale-ish he’d be keeping his promise to Bat-Bale!

Superman Batman A Whole New World

Superman Batman A Whole New World.

This just makes me giggle.

Every time I hear something new about this, it just gets better and better!

 

1.THERE WILL PROBABLY BE 13 EPISODES INSTEAD OF JUST TEN!  *FLAILS*

 

2.Also, now I will get to watch new Gob Bluth come out with the knowledge that he is the reincarnation of Juan Borgia in my head, which cannot be priced.

 

3.No matter what, I’m pretty sure we were all going to watch the new episodes more than once,  David Cross.  No worries!

Puppets, Project Runway, and Pictures

This is the part where summer has gone crazy!  During my vacation travels I met a variety of characters, from Queen Elizabeth I: to the Mad Hatter.  I also got to meet many of Jim Hensen’s creations!  Most of them could not be photographed, such as Ernie, Big Bird, Red and Mokey Fraggle, Rowlph the dog, Dr. Teeth ( I saw my reflection in his gold tooth!), Sir Didymous from “Labyrinth”, and the Swedish Chef.  Some, however, were free of that rule!    They all live together, for the moment, at the Center for Puppetry Arts in Atlanta (http://www.puppet.org/).

When I returned home things seemed normal again, but now I find myself entertaining thoughts like:

1. It’s almost 2 in the morning.  Time to do laundry!

2. There is a raccoon charging down the sidewalk, straight at me.  What do I do in this situation!?

3. Mondo, the winner of Project Runway All Stars, is clearly the Rumpelstiltskin of the fashion world.  Only, in his version of the story, he was forced to feel that if he kept spinning straw materials into golden garments, he would have to revert to being emotionally, a baby.  Then, when they called his name at the end, as the winner of Project Runway All Stars, the prize rejuvenated him back into being an emotionally-adjusted man.  I find this an interesting take on the tale, actually.  A lot of things make more sense when the imp’s spinning has more to do with his own issues instead of the pitiful gold trinkets, or the distress of a random stranger.  The thought of the baby being an aspect of Rumpelstiltskin that needs to be found or done away with makes me like that story better.  Huh.
