Tolkien Fandom Oral History Project - Marquette University Can't Post

If you are interested in adding your voice to this fandom project, check out this video on YouTube: https://youtu.be/sehk1mq1Xmk

I participated in this at a recent Mythcon, and part of my comments (from 2:03 - 2:16) can be heard in the video.

Marquette University archivist Bill Fliss is hoping to gather 6,000 oral histories from fans, so click on the link below the video to find out how you can be a part of the project, if you're interested.

I remember doing a short commentary [In reply to] Can't Post

When Jackson was fighting to get The Hobbit made, there was a collection of videos in support of him. I discovered I'm not too good at figuring out how to get at this, but I'll definitely give it a hobbity try :D I liked your segment!!! You've inspired me!



We have been there and back again.
