It’s Saturday afternoon, so what the heck?

Ah, that’s better.

    Tonight’s reading is Monty Python The Fellowship of the Ring.

    Bif: I like DM of the Rings better.

    More generally, I don’t think I’ll be able to watch the movies reading that. I’ve been in too many gaming groups like that.

    I don’t know if you’ve been following Flight of the Conchords, but you’ll probably enjoy this nonetheless: Frodo, Don’t Wear the Ring

    But nothing beats Spock singing about hobbits- seriously:

    Fucking magnificent, made my day. (I was SO pissed off at Peter Jackson for not using ANY of Led Zeppelin’s music in those movies. He could’ve used “Ramble On” for the scenes of Frodo in Mordor, with flashbacks to the Shire, and when the Fellowship first left Rivendell, and “Misty Mountain Hop” as well, IMNSHO.) Thanks so much for this. Rock on!

    PS – Saturday was Bilbo & Fordo’s birthday. Very appropriate, nice tribute.

    I was surprised to recently learn how many Led Zeppelin tunes are “derivative works.”

    Let’s say that instead of “derivative works”, Mr. Page “resurrected” these old blues riffs and introduced them to the rock owrld, shall we? If it weren’t for Led Zeppelin, I doubt that white boy cock-rock would have gotten as far as it did, or even been acknowledged. o_O
