Today in Middle Earth

Today in Middle-earth, January 15
The Bridge of Khazad-dûm, and the fall of Gandalf (1419)
The Company reaches Nimrodel late at night (1419)

January 15, 3019 (S.R. 1419)
1. The Bridge of Khazad-dûm, and the fall of Gandalf.
(from the appendices)
“… there came a great noise: a rolling BOOM that seemed to come from depths far below, and to tremble in the stone at their feet. They sprang towards the door in alarm. DOOM, DOOM it rolled again, as if huge hands were turning the very caverns of Moria into a vast drum...”
(Tolkien, 1965 Ballantine, p. 428 FotR)

2. The Company reaches Nimrodel late at night.
(from the appendices)
“‘Lothlórien!’ cried Legolas. ‘Lothlórien! We have come to the eaves of the Golden Wood. Alas that it is winter…’”
(Tolkien, 1965 Ballantine, p. 438 FotR)

I thought you might like to know.

Just thought I'd let you know, I rented Fellowship over the weekend..
Scott had never seen LOTR (or read the books), he's hooked..
I think if it hadn't been so late when it ended, he would have ran to the video store for Two Towers.

MAN! I wanted to watch one this weekend, but couldn't convince anyone else in my house that it was a good idea. I really need a DVD player in my room.
