04/03/20 06:32 PMLL: Pretty cute.
04/03/20 06:32 PMLL: also, message me in Discord if you play WoW, can screenshare, and are REALLY bored. There's something I really want to see.
04/03/20 07:12 PM[✔]firefly_1824: hey people
04/03/20 07:14 PMLL: hi z
04/03/20 07:14 PM[✔]firefly_1824: starting the first hobbit movie. we'll see how far we get before getting away from them, maybe. will have to battle lee who will want to watch lots of other things
04/03/20 07:15 PMLL: ...I experienced the "Far Over The Misty Mountains" scene in person, once.
04/03/20 07:18 PM[✔]firefly_1824: oh?
04/03/20 07:18 PM[✔]firefly_1824: the orchestra/mann center hasn't done the hobbit movies that i'm aware
04/03/20 07:19 PMMoonSoldier3: Hey, guys.
04/03/20 07:19 PM[✔]firefly_1824: but where did you get to hear it?
04/03/20 07:19 PM[✔]firefly_1824: hii
04/03/20 07:19 PMMoonSoldier3: How's everyone doing?
04/03/20 07:19 PMLL: Oh, I didn't hear the song live (though that would be awesome), but I did have an extraordinary experience by a lit fire in a cabin that took me to another world.
04/03/20 07:20 PMLL: As you know, I work in a museum, and we have log houses there. There's also a man... a dying breed, who is an expert on all the things of the 1800's, and has done most of them himself.
04/03/20 07:21 PMLL: He sharpens saws and dyes wool and carves wood. He farms and does everything. You'll never talk to an 1800's farmer, but the closest thing is to talk to Mr. Mike.
04/03/20 07:21 PMLL: It was a cold fall day, and he was going to teach us in the cabins, and had lit a fire---I could see the smoek as I rushed toward it, late.
04/03/20 07:22 PMLL: .....I opened the wooden door as softly as I could, and the dark of the cabin meant that all I could see was the fire... and there was Mike, dressed up as a farmer from the 1800s, doing the same things they would, and it was astonishing. As my eyes adjusted to the dark, I could see my friends, who were in benches next to the roaring fire, and it felt so surreal all I could think of was that scene.
04/03/20 07:23 PMLL: I learned how the "dead as a doornail" expression came about that day, and learned about the framework used to make quilts, and the different generation of log houses.
04/03/20 07:23 PM[✔]firefly_1824: you should copy that into Word or something, it's quite atmospheric the way you wrote it
04/03/20 07:23 PMLL: .....but for a second, a fraction of a second, I doubed my senses and questioned whether it was real.
04/03/20 07:23 PM[✔]firefly_1824: that's cool
04/03/20 07:23 PMLL: It was wonderful.
04/03/20 07:24 PM[✔]firefly_1824: sounds like it
04/03/20 07:24 PMLL: After the lesson was done, and we all left and had normal day jobs again, I ran into my office, and pulled up The Hobbit trailer, and watched the scene.... and the hairs on the back of my neck stood up, again, just like the first time.
04/03/20 07:24 PM[✔]firefly_1824: hee
04/03/20 07:25 PM[✔]firefly_1824: we saw the three LOTR files live in concert with the movie, full choir and everything
04/03/20 07:26 PM[✔]firefly_1824: if you ever have the chance to see it in concert, you should
04/03/20 07:27 PMLL: Oh I DEFINITELY WILL. That's worth a 3 hour drive, for SURE.
04/03/20 07:28 PMLL: It's funny. It really brings me back there, talking about this. It was like seeing the a natural phenomenon, and a moment of tremendous priviledge. The past is over, yes, but when I walked through that door it came vividly alive.
04/03/20 07:28 PM[✔]firefly_1824: looks like they're doing order of the phoenix and return of the jedi this year
04/03/20 07:28 PM[✔]firefly_1824: and you have the ability to remember it strongly
04/03/20 07:29 PMLL: ....some of the people who work where I do sometimes joke that "We aren't sure whether Mr. Mike" is a time traveller. My response to that is this.... whether Mike is a time traveller is irrelevant, because if you talk to him, and really listen, he will make YOU travel through time.
04/03/20 07:29 PMLL: ....he sure did it to me.
04/03/20 07:29 PM[✔]firefly_1824: that's cool
04/03/20 07:30 PMLL: Yes.
04/03/20 07:30 PMLL: I think that when I tell people that I've seen magic, real magic, in the place where I work, they don't believe me.
04/03/20 07:30 PM[✔]firefly_1824: oh, i was going to ask you if you've ever seen any of the videos that chinese village girls have been doing
04/03/20 07:30 PMLL: ....but I have. And dreams have come true there. I've seen it.
04/03/20 07:31 PM[✔]firefly_1824: cooking and making things from scratch (like grinding flours) and stuff
04/03/20 07:31 PMLL: Nooooo, but I'll start looking.
04/03/20 07:31 PMLL: And, at your request, I'll copy what I said into Word.
04/03/20 07:31 PM[✔]firefly_1824: sometimes traditional crafts. i keep thinking you might like them
04/03/20 07:32 PM@UltraMatt: hi
04/03/20 07:32 PM[✔]firefly_1824: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCoC47do520os_4DBMEFGg4A
04/03/20 07:32 PMMoonSoldier3: Hey, Matt.
04/03/20 07:32 PM[✔]firefly_1824: i suggest started with hers
04/03/20 07:33 PM[✔]firefly_1824: *starting
04/03/20 07:36 PM[✔]firefly_1824: man, bilbo's patch dressing gown is fantastic
04/03/20 07:37 PM[✔]firefly_1824: that's something i wouldn't mind having
04/03/20 07:37 PMLL: for the record, if you found yourself enchanted by the original "Unexpected Journey" trailer, and want to relive that experience and have the hair stand up on your neck again, there is a fairly reliable way.
04/03/20 07:37 PMLL: A dude made a mashup of everybody who recorded their reactions of seeing the trailer for the first time, and it's very difficult not to share in their excitement and wonder!
04/03/20 07:37 PMLL: Link to it follows:
04/03/20 07:37 PM[✔]firefly_1824: oo cool

04/03/20 07:38 PMLL: Heh, don't watch it too often, but come back from time to time, it's not something you want to get used to.
04/03/20 07:38 PMLL: They are so excited and happy....heh. for once, I'm really happy that people naturally imitate each other.
04/03/20 07:39 PMMoonSoldier3: Enjoy, guys: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yAjTtQoy8QE

04/03/20 07:40 PMYingGirl: I started playing nightshade. I got an obsessive guardian
04/03/20 07:41 PM[✔]firefly_1824: cool, LL
04/03/20 07:41 PM[✔]firefly_1824: sometimes we watch the song twice
04/03/20 07:41 PM[✔]firefly_1824: the OST is (or was) on amazon prime
04/03/20 07:42 PMLL: I know the song by heart.
04/03/20 07:42 PM[✔]firefly_1824: so you can pump it into your ears whenever you want if it's still up
04/03/20 07:43 PMLL: There's an old man, (have I told you about this?) who does his own renditions of lots of Tolkien's music and poems, and his name is ColinJohnRudd. I showed him to Matt, I know, and he liked his work.
