    I am not sure to be honest, he probably did if he ever went to Port Meadow. Everyone who comes to Oxford should have a picnic at Port Meadow, and a drink at the Trout. I do know he used to hang out at the The Eagle and Child, with some guy called C. S. Lewis.

    Narcissism, plain and simple.

    Heh... yes.. I did the Meadow/Trout Inn combo the first time I went to Oxford with the first lady I kissed, on that day.

    Nostalgia moment

    Hmm. 1991? Probably.

    Was this the one that was also the name of Sam's first child?

    Oh, I can ask a few questions, but I'm afraid I have to grovel at the feet of everyone here in terms of *remembering* all of the details of the books!! I last read Silmarillion and Unfinished Tales maybe 5 yrs ago...and my brain is pretty pathetic when it comes to remembering names and such. (the only answer I apparently knew was the Yellow Boots one...but I wasn't even confident in that so I didn't answer)

    Plus I had to bow out yesterday to actually do my job. I'd been slacking too much earlier.

    I'm afraid I need a little more context before I can answer.

    What on earth are you talking about?

    EDIT: OH! Sorry.

    I'm not sure what's more shocking, the idea that someone read the Silmarillion or the idea that someone enjoyed it...

    Hmm I wonder what a bunch of Tolkien geeks think to the films?
    Isn't it time for a colourful metaphor?

    Oh, I really should get my Dad on here. He's read all 10+ (how many have there been???) books that Tolkiens' son compiled and put out there....on top of Silmarillion and Unfin. Tales.

    Silmarillion's great. (although in my late teens when I first tried reading it I admit I couldn't get into it)

    As for the movies, I for one liked them a lot. All things considered, I was really impressed with how they turned out. Sure, some liberties were taken in terms of storyline, but those were forgivable and few and far between. The casting was pretty well done, and the cinematography/costuming/set miniatures were amazing. I love the movies. Also loved watching 10+ hours of documentary on the dvd's.
