  1. Anthology. Thor said it’s okay.
  2. You know, they really missed a trick in TRoS… Imagine if they took the helmets off the Knights of Ren one by one and you see Liam Neeson, Samuel L. Jackson, Ewan McGregor, and Hayden Christensen. And someone gasps, “Clones!” Aw, come on, you know you would have loved it! Like in a dark, nightmarish sequence, perhaps after having already established the idea of evil clones.
  3. The 50s Superman TV show used this rhythm in its theme: Dotted eighth, sixteenth, and half. “Superman.” I think it was used even earlier, in radio or cartoons. Though there it was ascending, Williams uses it in a descending motif.
  4. Here are the books of his (ed.) which I own and which I have read: I’ve probably about a much time reading these as all other literature combined. Amazing.
  5. Ah, well, yes, if you’re reading the UT version, there are a few lacunae where he directs you to read the Silm version. The “new” presentation is undoubtedly more reader-friendly, but it is 99% the same text as if you follow the directions in UT. (Actually, the new book has three passages cut, which are in UT.) Nope, sorry, the main text in Beren and Lúthien and in The Fall of Gondolin is the early (Book of Lost Tales) version, with Gnomes and Tevildo Prince of Cats and all. The Fall of Gondolin also includes the “late” fragment which is also found in UT. Absolutely!
  6. Yeah, I think one very interesting factor in how people received TLJ was in whether they had a deep reverence for Luke Skywalker or always just kind of thought he was lame (i.e., prior to the Sequel Trilogy coming out).
  7. These are from The Art of the Score podcast. These are from the LEGO The Force Awakens video game source files.
  8. Hmm, the OST, the FYC, and the three tracks from the LEGO video game are still basically it, so far. There are a few more cues that can be heard on the Art of the Score podcast, but I think those are partial? Specifically thinking of the I Will Finish What You Started and Landing At Light Speed cues (Jay’s titles… too lazy to look up the real ones). What you have come across could include actual clips from the movie, and they tried to isolate the music by just playing the rear channels or whatever, or bits from Blu-ray menus or interviews or behind-the-scenes videos. Oh, there are also the Jedi Steps and Adagio (concert arrangements, which have been recorded by Lockhart and Dudamel, respectively. But I can never remember if those were supposed to have been composed/arranged in 2015 or later.
  9. I made a list of all of the The Adventures of Tom Bombadil poems which Tolkien recorded. Most of these were recorded together in the 60s for the Poems & Songs album; a couple — #4 and #6 — which are from The Fellowship of the Ring (and republished in the ATB) were recorded earlier for the Hobbit/FR album. 1. The Adventures of Tom Bombadil https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i0f16xERFCc 2. Errantry Can’t find on Youtube. 3. Little Princess Mee Can’t find on Youtube. 4. The Man in the Moon Stayed Up Too Late https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zzMxcvMD3sw 5. The Man in the Moon Came Down Too Soon https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tbi8qK7AAk8 6. The Stone Troll https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CDDNHoJZA-0 7. Perry-the-Winkle https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3W1t3pR60Ms 8. The Mewlips https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QxDYenutH2s 9. Oliphaunt https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=haSiiaA5PgQ 10. The Hoard https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eZn1cTWSV68 11. The Sea-Bell https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DxF6fFekjvE These are from the FR and were not republished in the ATB, but were recorded in the ATB sessions: 12. A Elbereth Gilthoniel https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qCCsn8QmhVQ 13. Galadriel’s Lament in Lorien There are three different recordings of this (“Namárië”) by Tolkien , but I can’t find the reading from the Tom Bombadil sessions.
  10. I am looking to put together a list of all recordings of poetry sung or read by Tolkien father or son. Unless such a list already exists? Please point me to it… Also, you can post Youtube videos in this thread. It’s for a Tolkien party I’m throwing tonight. Thanks!
  11. Nah. The Children of Húrin was originally printed in Unfinished Tales in 1980. Beren and Lúthien was originally printed in The Book of Lost Tales, Part Two in 1983. The Fall of Gondolin was originally printed in The Book of Lost Tales, Part Two in 1983.
  12. No doubt they plan to adapt the First Age eventually, possibly as a movie trilogy. The clue is that they recently repackaged writings which have been in print since the 80s in the form of a trilogy: I think they probably consider the Second Age a safer property to test the waters with. Plus, it’s not quite so “elvish” as the First Age, so yeah, potentially more GOT-like. You think they wouldn’t do it as a “big medieval-ish fantasy”?
