YAY HOBBIT!Just returned from the midnight viewing of The Hobbit. And no, I did not dress up. All I had was The One Ring I got from an old Lord of the Rings bookmark and put it on a chain. I believe that small token at least satisfied the god of Tolkien nerdyness.YAY HOBBIT!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm not going to say much about the movie other than my overall opinion, for I don't want to spoil anything for anyone. I had only a few severe dislikes about the movie, but for the most part I greatly enjoyed it. And I really very much want the soundtrack. :iconheeplz:
And now I am putting myself to bed.

Yet again the Mass Effect Fandom proved that it will not leave the ending in the state it was presented in the game. A certain (fan!) mod was created (and is right now in the testing phase) a Happy Ending Mod for ME3. We can destroy the Reapers, Shepard lives (EDI and Geth too) and most importantly of all we don't have to worry about the Star Child.
Instruction how to install it and the mod itself can be found here:
You can also check how the mod works here on youtube:

"Scars can come in handy. I have one myself above my left knee that is a perfect map of the London Underground."—Prof. Albus Dumbledore
Early life becomes an exploration of invisible parameters, circles beyond circles, as one pushes out to test the boundaries of safety. There is one’s bedroom, one’s home, neighborhood, school and town, state and nation. Early on, maps become important documents – declarations of being and rights and privileges. In the art world, throughout history, maps have been a constant measure of human progress, from the Phoenecians recording their trade routes over 2000 years ago, or pre-Columbian times in which map

Johnny Cash was without a doubt one of the most influential, acclaimed, and popular singer–songwriters of the last century.
February 26 would have been his 82nd birthday. Many of Cash’s recordings are now almost universally known—songs like “I Walk the Line” and “Folsom Prison Blues.” As a result of his work he has been inducted into the Country Hall of Fame, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
Where do you place value?I've been noticing a trend in a lot of Christians feeling like they need to defend themselves. So I'm going to share some things that have helped me with this.Where do you place value?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
An easy way to deal with this is to put more value on what God says about you than you put on what other people say about you. Which do you hold in higher regard? Does what other people think and say about you dominate your outlook? Or do you hold what God says in a higher esteem? It's good to value and respect other people. Even if someone is wrong about something, that person is still valuable. They are valuable to God, and so they should be valuable to you. But that doesn't mean you need to value that person's words or opinion, especially if they are wrong about something. If you only put value on what God says, no accusations or insults from others should affect you. For this to be effective, you need to know what God says. The bible, from Genesis to Revelation, is about Jesus and His finished work. Jesus is God's word. If i

As I read the Hobbit to my son, as Smaug lies buried under the waters of the Long Lake and as Elves, Dwarves, Men and Orcs are drawn to the Lonely Mountain by greed, I stumble over promo photos of the Hobbit http://www.herr-der-ringe-film.de/v3/de/news/tolkienfilme/news_72192.php and am reduced to disbelief.
Of course, I should have known. The target audience are the "Lotr" fans, the ones who have never read the books (probably tried, but gave up after "Concerning Hobbits"), who can't even be bothered to spell out the title of what they call their favourite book (or movie), who whooped with glee when Legolas surfed down the stairs of Helm's Deep on a shield or when Viggo, Orly and that alcoholic of a Dwarf kung-fu'd their way towards Théoden, and whom Jackson expects to be clamouring for more of the same in The Hobbit. He couldn't have made it a children's movie, no, of course not.
Thus, those lovable, squabbling Dwarves, who have only bread knives (which they lose

:iconcalculatus: This guy decided to make a breakdown of abilities of Blaze and Penn for me and there are some crazy stuff here!
Check it out!!!))
You gave us a few of Blaze's and Penn's abilities in the past but I decided that it wasn't good enough for me, so I fleshed their powers out some more by taking their skills and physical and spiritual properties of fire into account.
·Fire flows in his blood, making him immune to all foreign contaminants such as poison and disease.
o This would lead to regenerative healing factor since the flames would be constantly cauterizing his wounds. This is kind of like how phoenixes heal themselves.
Fire elementals are abnormally strong since fire spiritually represents strength.

Tolkien Illustrator’s First Aid Kit: Elves
Tolkien’s texts are notable for their abundance of characters, many of them mentioned perhaps only once, other playing very important parts in the stories. However, it is often very difficult to find any description of how those characters look, and this is what we, artists and illustrators, are usually most concerned with.
So here it is – Tolkien Illustrator’s First Aid Kit – a list of all those characters, whose physical appearance is mentioned in the texts, including The Silmarillion and The History of the Middle-earth.
To start with, the Elves. As we know, during the march from Cuiviënén t

I decided to put my knowledge to use, for the benefit of our artistic community and all people out there trying to thrive.
As I've written in my ID, I'm a literature and language teacher. I've been working hard to get my master degree in French Literature and Narrative Theories, which will come latter this year.
And as for this, I thought I could be at your service to read your literature deviations and post you honest constructive critics based on the best of world wide letters!
But I have to be clear about one thing: I am not the kind of person that only say what you might want to hear.
I will never be rude or disrespectful BUT... it is needed of me to say sometimes things you may not agree or accept.
If you ask me for a critic don't be upset if I eventually point an aspect of your composition that needs to be improved.
I'm sure that it's not
