”We’re going that way. Straight as we can. There’s no point in carrying anything we’re not sure to need.”
He was tall as a young tree, lithe, immensely strong, able swiftly to draw a great war-bow and shoot down a Nazgul, endowed with the tremendous vitality of Elvish bodies, so hard and resistant to hurt that he went only in light shoes over rock or through snow, the most tireless of all the Fellowship.
The world was young, the mountains green,
No stain yet on the Moon was seen,
No words were laid on stream or stone
When Durin woke and walked alone.
He named the nameless hills and dells;
He drank from yet untasted wells;
He stooped and looked in Mirrormere,
And saw a crown of stars appear,
As gems upon a silver thread,
Above the shadow of his head.
A Journey in the Dark, Fellowship of the Ring

Seldom do I make self promotions here, but this time it means a GREAT deal for me, so I’ll allow myself to post about a non-Tolkien theme just for this once.
So, me and my friends from Gojira Brasil are trying to bring the band Gojira to play here for the first time, if you haven’t listened to them, you should. They’re AWESOME. Anyway, if you’re brazilian and want to help, please sign this petition. (it takes no longer than 10 sec, I promise).
Thank you a lot!

Now back to Tolkien business and sorry for spamming your dashboard.
