"1. Never read any book that is not a year old. 2. Never read any but famed books. 3. Never read any but what you like; or, in Shakspeare's phrase, 'No profit goes where is no pleasure ta'en: In brief, sir, study what you most affect.'"

- Ralph Waldo Emerson, "Books"
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.
