Not sure what I think of this, but then, perhaps we should have hired him back when some of us were were building Tolkienia!

What's Tolkienia? [In reply to] Can't Post

Do tell :)

I like the map project you have linked to because it is great to see people having fun - I get the feeling Tolkien certainly did. And for all hobbits' love of tamed countryside, I think they would have liked national parks too. Even homebody Sam knew landmarks in the woods for 20 miles around. "Still round the corner we may meet a sudden tree or standing stone that none have seen but we alone..."

Tolkeinia [In reply to] Can't Post

Tolkienia n : about or relating to J.R.R. Tolkien or his works? Tongue

"Hail, hail, Tolkienia!" [In reply to] Can't Post

"Mightiest of mighty nations!
Hail, hail, Tolkienia!
Land of the brave and free!"

I met a Balrog on the stair.
He had some wings that weren't there.
They weren't there again today.
I wish he would just fly away.

Where were you when we were constructing the anthem, back in 2013!? [In reply to] Can't Post

Wedge it in here anywhere you like. TongueWink

Here's the original music: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o5IUkIu1Zx4

Hail, Tolkienia!

Chorus

All Ha-il to Tolkienia,
Let us all proclaim our love,
Of our glorious suburban banks and braes.
Here, just south a bit from Chelmsford
Tooks play golf upon the greensward;
All hail to Tolkenia, thee we praise!


Verse (Tune I)

Here in So-uth Woodham Ferrers we are safe from changeling bears,
As we amble past the trees of Arwen's Grove.
We pick up a lunch at Curlew's, sail off from Eyotts club,
To navigate the falls of Dimrill Stairs.

Chorus

All Ha-il to Tolkienia,
Let us all proclaim our love,
Of our glorious suburban banks and braes.
Here, just south a bit from Chelmsford
Tooks play golf upon the greensward;
All hail to Tolkenia, thee we praise!


Verse (Tune II)

Drawn by it's mellow byways,
We meander on our bikes,
To discover nooks and crannies
Or adventure that We likes (Precious).

Chorus

All Ha-il to Tolkienia,
Let us all proclaim our love,
Of our glorious suburban banks and braes.
Here, just south a bit from Chelmsford
Tooks play golf upon the greensward;
All hail to Tolkenia, thee we praise!

Verse?

You may be sorry you asked :D It was a mythic country [In reply to] Can't Post

begun by a comment by Rembrethil, referenced here: http://newboards.theonering.net/...i?post=634330#634330

And after a considerable process, we ended up with this: http://newboards.theonering.net/...i?post=645401#645401

The longest lived element was the "Fourth Estate," the Tolkienia Times newspaper—here's an early edition: http://newboards.theonering.net/...i?post=653612#653612

An exercise in absurdity, but we had a wonderful time while it lasted. Cool

Oh yeah [In reply to] Can't Post

"I remember it well." And the grand entrance from another location. (Those are some sopranos!)

We should have invited the Marx brothers to join the government, and bring in some sanity.

Oh, yes. :) [In reply to] Can't Post

The best part is that it was based on a real place in England that DanielLB told us about: https://www.google.co.uk/...24!4d0.6063814?hl=en
