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

If you're here and reading this, you probably don't need me to tell you the purpose of this journal - but, well, I will anyway. It's contest time! I've been wanting to hold a writing competition for deviantART's literature community for some time, but something always gets in the way. No longer! There's something about mythology and legend that has always been fascinating to me, and the same goes for any literature that is inspired by these tales.
I'm sure you can see where this is going!

My Robin Williams storySince we're all sharing... MY ROBIN WILLIAMS memory is when I was working at the Disney/MGM studios Animation (Tour/Studio) in Florida and he came down to take a personal tour of our studio. (He was there for an event/publicity/vacation, can't remember). The tour part of our studio had a film called "Back to Neverland" that he was in and it taught how animation was done. It looped over and over all day long. He got a kick out of the fact that we had to hear him yelling and screaming all day long. At one point, I was shooting at the video animation set up and he came over to see what I was doing. I explained it and he couldn't stop looking at the tour of people going through on the other side of the glass. I explained that we looked at them as "moving wallpaper" an tried not to look at them directly. Not Robin. He was on stage and he immediately found a crazy hat to put on and was running around the place. Robin Williams exuded joy and its sad to hear it wasn't always in his heartMy Robin Williams story5 months ago in Personal More Like This

Starfighter Essay, NEW FACTS.Note: All of this is taken from a recent interview with hamlet_Machine. This is pretty new material (under a week old) unless you are active on LiveJournal.Starfighter Essay, NEW FACTS.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
DIFFERENT CLASSES OF PEOPLE:
"Starfighter takes place in a fictional future where humans have advanced far enough in technology that they can travel space easier and colonize other planets.. Earth is doing pretty well! The people there have the resources to a better education and genetic altercation, which is mainly where the navigators come from. The fighters, in general, don't have as sweet a life and aren't as valuable. So while the navigators are the smarter, they aren't the survivalists that the fighters are. They work best as a team, where they can compensate for each other. And the rest just has to be revealed in the comic! I'm sorry for the wait, but it's really going to be better this way! I hope that helps to explain a little bit!" ~HamletMachine

You'll never look at this old nursery rhyme the same again
Warning! Mature Content! Reader discretion is advised
Taking something old and restyling or rewriting it in a new way is always worthy of a look-in. cristinewakesuphappy has taken a well known nursery rhyme and given it a poignant and sinister make-over, transecting it with a second poem I think we will all recognise, and creating a twisted taxidermy of nursery rhymes.

My fear of catsI already talked a bit about it over at my twitter, but I want to elaborate a bit because it's something a lot of people don't seem to understand.My fear of cats4 months ago in Personal More Like This
I've developed a fear of cats. It's not a phobia because I can function perfectly normally in a room with a cat. It's presence doesn't bother me one bit. I'll even pet it, but I don't particularly enjoy touching it and if it tries to stand on my lap we're going to have a problem.
The thing is, it's the cat's claws I don't like. Even if a cat enjoys what you're doing to it, it'll bore it's claws into you out of pure bliss. Holding a cat usually involves pain too unless you face it away from you. I'm aware that not every moment with a cat is filled with pain, I've owned cats and lives with one at the moment after all (though it's not mine) and we get along just fine, but I've got more scars from cats than anything else (including the one I live with) and none of those cats were angry with me. They were just doing cat stuff.
My favorite „The Lord Of The Rings“ MomentsJust like so many other people, I have a long history with "The Lord Of The Rings". From my very early childhood up to this very day I have been fascinated with Middle Earth and everything connected to it. "The Hobbit" is my favorite book of all time and "The Lord Of The Rings" Trilogy is my favorite movie of all time. Seeing that "The Hobbit" is coming to cinemas this winter, I think it is time to re-watch these movies once again and list up my favorite scenes. Since I own The Special Extended DVD, I will use the extended cut for this list. Please keep in mind that this list is just based on my personal opinion and therefore maybe you'll be upset that your favorite scene might not be on this list. If so, you are welcome to tell me which scene that is, but please remember that everybody is entitled to their own opinion. I will try to give reasons for why I love the scenes so much, so maybe you can understand my opinion.My favorite „The Lord Of The Rings“ Moments3 years ago in Personal More Like This
