Minor tangent [In reply to] Can't Post

but I've heard that some types of heavy metal music that write songs about more fantastical themes are sometimes called 'heavy mithril' in reference to this trend of theirs to be inspired by Middle-earth. Has anyone else heard of this term?

"I had forgotten that. It is hard to be sure of anything among so many marvels. The world is all grown strange. Elf and Dwarf in company walk in our daily fields; and folk speak with the Lady of the Wood and yet live; and the Sword comes back to war that was broken in the long ages ere the fathers of our fathers rode into the Mark! How shall a man judge what to do in such times?"

"As he ever has judged. Good and ill have not changed since yesteryear; nor are they one thing among Elves and Dwarves and another among Men. It is a man's part to discern them, as much in the Golden Wood as in his own house."
