Quest

Mapa de J.R.R Tolkien

But if you wanted to go on from the end of The Hobbit I think the ring would be your inevitable choice as the link. If then you wanted a large tale, the Ring would at once acquire a capital letter; and the Dark Lord would immediately appear. As he did, unasked, on the hearth at Bag End as soon as I came to that point. So the essential Quest started at once. But I met a lot of things on the way that astonished me. Tom Bombadil I knew already; but I had never been to Bree. Strider sitting in the comer at the inn was a shock, and I had no more idea who he was than had Frodo. The Mines of Moria had been a mere name; and of Lothlórien no word had reached my mortal ears till I came there. Far away I knew there were the Horse-lords on the confines of an ancient Kingdom of Men, but Fangorn Forest was an unforeseen adventure. I had never heard of the House of Eorl nor of the Stewards of Gondor. Most disquieting of all, Saruman had never been revealed to me, and I was as mystified as Frodo at Gandalf’s failure to appear on September 22. 1 knew nothing of the Palantíri, though the moment the Orthanc-stone was cast from the window, I recognized it, and knew the meaning of the ‘rhyme of lore’ that had been running in my mind: seven stars and seven stones and one white tree. These rhymes and names will crop up; but they do not always explain themselves. I have yet to discover anything about the cats of Queen Berúthiel. But I did know more or less all about Gollum and his pan, and Sam, and I knew that the way was guarded by a Spider. «The Letters of J.R.R. Tolkien», Letter 163

Juguetes de Star Wars

No hacían una colección muy impresionante, mis viejos juguetes, pero está claro que entre los nueve años (The Phantom Menace) y los doce (Attack of the Clones), lo que sea que estuviese haciendo Lucas con sus precuelas estaba funcionando como magia arcana conmigo. Super nerdo.

Mi Qui-Gon Jinn y su clon, mi inexplicablemente rubio Obi-Wan Kenobi… (^ _ ^ )

Mi mamá consiguió esta foto el otro día.

Rey

En el horizonte nos queda el último acto. Una tercera confrontación con el aprendiz caído de Luke Skywalker que sellará el destino de esta hija de las arenas de Jakku. Primera de los nuevos Jedi.

Can’t wait.

Atardecer

Parece que pasaron solo unos días desde que armé este blog, con la música de The Force Awakens y The Hateful Eight estallando en mis (ahora-muertos) audífonos. Pasaron casi dos años desde esa madrugada y hoy, entre otras cosas, The Last Jedi es una película de carne y hueso, el Madrid de Zidane levantó dos lindas Copa de Europa, y este sitio se quedó en un esperable abandono en medio del comenzar a vivir en otro país y escribir código.

Aprendí algunas cosas. Porgs

Un año está empezando, y por razones que quizás explore en otro momento, de repente sentí ganas de escribir aquí, de vez en cuando, algunas palabras en español para nadie en particular. Uh, también quisiera cambiar la tipografía, y algo de color… pero hoy no.

George Martin

«The two sat across a desk—one man aged 36, the other 27, both in smart suits and ties, and with polite, cultured voices that had benefited from self-improvement. Brian was desperate but trying not to seem so, George was tolerant, pleasant and in a position of power. Brian told him about the Beatles, saying how big they were in Liverpool and affecting surprise when George said he hadn’t heard of them. This somewhat riled his host: as George would reflect, “I almost asked him in reply where Liverpool was—the thought of anything coming out of the provinces was extraordinary.» «Tune In: The Beatles: All These Years», Mark Lewisohn

Mientras muevo cosas por aqui y aprendo un poco más sobre Jekyll, escucho escenas de las películas que más disfruté el diciembre pasado.

♫ Listen for a moment lads, and hear me tell my tale…
