Last of all Húrin stood alone. Then he cast aside
his shield, and wielded an axe two-handed; and it is sung that the axe
smoked in the black blood of the troll-gaurd of Gothmog until it withered,
and each time that he slew Húrin cried: 'Aurë entuluva! Day
shall come again!' Seventy times he uttered that cry.

very pleased with how narrow my site looked on high resolution
computers. That is now fixed.
I think the (slightly) new look adds a lot to the site. As
you can see, I now have a couple new mini-sections on the
left below the navigation. I've added a quote, which I will
update every so often, and five "of the Month" thingies
(woah, watch out for that techie jargon). All of those links
on the left are worth serious looking in to if you are at
all interested in their corresponding section.
that, I must also say that Spirited Away is a far better
movie than you think. It sunk the
Titanic for a very good reason.
Silmarillion was just plain amazing. Tolkien
could have turned any 20 to 40 pages of that in to an epic
on par with The Lord of the Rings on it's own.
musician Tweaker (a
name which referes to the idea of tweaking music until it's
just right over a long period of time) has created some
fantastic music. The song Linoleum
I can't help but sing along with whenever I hear it, and
it's a general rule with me that I don't sing along with
anything, because I'm an awful singer, and I
don't like to hear me, but with this song I just can't help
it. The song Microsize
Boy I would sing along with if I knew all the
words, but that's okay, because the voice distortion on
that song is awesome. Oh, and both of those songs are extremely
Howe, he's just an incredible painter of Tolkien's works.
Story is the new webcomic from Michael Poe, the creator
Now. Near the end of the story-line (Yes, it actually
gained a story-line after a while. A cool one, too.) EN
became a very cool story-driven strip, and it looks like
that's how ES
is going to start. Now, sure, I liked the old EN
strips, but the last couple months of it I loved.
Errant Story could
be damn cool (in fact I already love it). Not to mention
that during the period that Poe worked on Exploitation
Now he's become an awesome artist.

it's been a while since I've posted any of my music, and whether
or not today changes that is up to you. It's more of an experiment,
really, but I know of at least one person who might be interested
in it, so I figured, what the hell. It's an Ogg
Vorbis file, but don't worry, Winamp
should play it just fine. I think Winamp has had support for
Ogg for quite some time now, so if your copy of Winamp can't
play it, you'd better go download a new version. Check
out my "song" here.
I've finally gotten around to updating DpBrowser
Start (the main updates being the additions to the Online
Comics section, and the new J.R.R. Tolkien section). I'll
be doing some more updating, and restructuring of it soon.
I should also soon have an ad-free version available (damn,
those pop-ups are annoying).
mean time, if you don't want to see pop-ups, check out Mozilla
or Opera. To set Mozilla
to ignore pop-ups, go to the Edit menu and click Preferences,
double-click Advanced, click Scripts & Plugins, and uncheck
Open unrequested windows. No more pop-ups. In Opera, go to
the File menu and click Preferences, click Windows, and change
Accept pop-up windows to Refuse pop-up windows. (note: some
sites actually use pop-ups for functionality instead of ads,
if you find a site or link that isn't working, it may be trying
to open a pop-up window, so don't forget where these options
are in case you need to change them back) Don't bother asking
me how to do this in AOL or IE, because they don't have these
options (but that's okay, since no one should be using those
browsers anyways). Oh, and unfortunately Netscape can't do
it, thanks to AOL restricting them from it (note: Mozilla
and Netscape are for the most part the same browser aside
from this option).

updated the Tolkien
information I posted Wednesday with information on the
Valar, and some definitions at the bottom of a few words which
were not explained (such as Quendi, which is the true name
for the Elves).
November 06th 2002
put together some brief information on Tolkien's languages
and elves. I will personally be using this as reference (although
I know almost all of it by heart already) when conducting
RPGs in a fantasy setting which I can twist to make more Tolkien-like.
It is also a good way for those familiar with D&D-like
fantasy to see where concepts like Dark-elves, High Elves,
Wood-elves, etc. came from. So, I figured I might as well
make it available to everyone. Check
it out here. It was put together using primarily information
and Back Again, which is a great Tolkien reference site
(though still under construction).
