"If you want to write rock lyrics, you must learn about where the hobbits dwell."

"If you want to write rock lyrics, you must learn about where the hobbits dwell." Can't Post

Until today, I was unfamiliar with Yo La Tengo's song "Sugarcube" (1997), much less this video for it (key moment at 0:52). Six years before School of Rock, too, but I don't know whether or not it preceded the announcement that The Lord of the Rings was being filmed.

Treachery, treachery I fear; treachery of that miserable creature.

But so it must be. Let us remember that a traitor may betray himself and do good that he does not intend.

Well [In reply to] Can't Post

I thought it was a reference to Led Zeppelin, which strangely enough allowed one of their songs to be used in "School of Rock".

Some "Twilight Zone" music might be appropriate here.

"The Crack of Doom is a small thermal exhaust port, right below the main port. The shaft leads directly to the reactor system. A precise hit will start a chain reaction which should destroy Barad-dr."
