As we prepare for Amazon Prime’s Lord of the Rings series, we thought it wise to look at some of the most epic characters to have lived in Middle-Earth. This list will concern itself with the beings who walked Middle-earth in the First, Second and Third Age. This is our…


Captain my captain

Dead Poets Society is one of my favourite movies.

One scene in particular stands out and will forever be a major theme in my life; and it is how Charlie Dalton chooses a new identity/name for himself called Nuwanda. This name and what it stood for is what grabbed me…


Today’s lesson comes from the book The Children of Hurin that tells the tale of the most tragic of Tolkien’s heroes: Turin

This book was released in 2007 and contains a quite immaculate re-composition and expansion on the story of Hurin. The story is originally found in The Silmarillion but…


Did you know: The Ring that Aragorn wears through-out all the movies is known as the ring of Barahir. The Ring of Barahir was an ornate silver ring given to Barahir by the Elven King Finrod Felagund (Galadriel’s brother), in reward for saving his life in Dagor Bragollach. …


“Every day that passes is a precious day lost”

These are the words spoken by Frodo to Sam on their way to Morder to cast the ring into the fiery depths of mount doom. First a bit of context:

I often think back to the fellowship that went on the journey to mount doom to destroy the One Ring. The fellowship that was assembled in Rivendell by Lord Elrond. Frodo, Sam, Merry, Pippin, Gimli, Logolas, Boromir, Aragorn and Gandalf. From the 9 of them who do we know suffered…


Fëanor is without a doubt one of my own personal favourite characters in the Tolkien universe. I already mentioned Eärendil as one of the most popular but there were none that could compete with the wisdom, skill, passion, anger and determination of Fëanor. …


Frodo holding the Phial of Galadriel

Today’s quote comes from another favorite scene of mine from Lord of the rings, which lead to an even greater scene later on. The quote:

“May it be a light for you in dark places when all other lights go out”

The scene is of-course the gift-giving scene between Lady…


There is a song being played in the world, a ever ongoing song that can be heard throughout every corner of the entire universe. Every living being either moves to or against the rhythm of this song whether they know it or not. We are part of this song, part…


Times change and with it I’ve noticed a tendency to monitor the shit out of everything these days. Nothing happens in this world without someone or something somewhere logging data on an event, activity or achievement. Cellphone minutes, data, vehicle kilometers, steps walked, heart rate, calories, facebook friends, instagram likes…
