"The so-called Catholic or Christian novelist nowadays has to be very indirect, if not downright deceitful because all he has to do is say one word about salvation or redemption and the jig is up, you know. So he has to do what Joyce did: he has to practice his art in cunning and in secrecy and achieve his objective by indirect methods."

- Walker Percy, Conversations with Walker Percy
The man and his music

Would you like to hear J. R. R. Tolkien singing one of the songs from The Hobbit?

Of course you would. If you wouldn't, don't tell me about it, because I'm not sure we want people like you around here.

Enjoy.

Sure beats Leonard Nimoy singing "The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins".

I have been giggling with glee for the past half hour at this. You have created a monster.
