Letters of Note: I have no ancestors of that gifted people. In 1938, German publishers asked him for proof of Aryan ancestry. He was not amused.

“Far Over the Misty Mountains Cold”

“Song of the Lonely Mountain,” Neil Finn. Pop music needs more anvil!

J.R.R. Tolkien reads from The Hobbit: Riddles in the Dark

The Hobbit, 1977. The first few minutes of the original Rankin-Bass production that captured my imagination when I was five years old.
