Elvish Epicness!

Recently two of the Elves, Millard and Silver Angel, have made a worthy video. Watch, and be amazed. I absolutely love this, because it completely mirrors my own opinions on this subject.

And if you're not an Elf, ye may not get this. But you shall find it amusing nonetheless.

Trolls! Wipeouts! Elves! Give me liberty or give me Elves! Or better yet, just give me Elves.


Huzzah for Elves!

Endurance and Victory,

The Hall of the King of Arowdae

The picture you observe there is my woeful Paint version of the Hall of the King. :)  Use your imagination, and let me explain it a wee bit.

Imagine you are walking along...and you see this massive stone wall.  With a golden door. :)  Pretty cool, huh?  If you step inside, you will see a giant, open-aired hall.  On either side of you are giant pillars, and a stone walkway stretches beneath your feet.  It is covered by all sorts of colored carpets and furs.  On the far side of the hall is another wall, bigger than the first.  There are tapestries, paintings, and banners strewn all across it.  At the foot of the wall is a lacquered wooden throne of hard kieda wood.  There is an assortment of furs to cushion the kings's backside laid upon the thrown. ;)

The end. ;)  How did you like your miniature tour through the Hall of the King of Arowdae?  Good?  OK?  Want more?  Well, ye'll have to wait.  No one is reading my novel until I have it halfway edited. ;)

Enough randomness for today.  Until next time!

The. Most. Epic. Movie. Ever.

The above video is about six minutes long--basically, I think of it as the entire musical theme of LOTR crammed into six minutes.

Part of the reason for this post is that 1) I love that video, and 2) I am about to watch the most epic movie ever: Lord of the Rings, Return of the King.

The. Best. Movie. Ever. Nothing comes close. It is the most fantastic fantasy and blow-you-away epic movie ever made and one of the greatest novels of all time.

Enough of my ranting. ;) Enjoy the video!

The Amazon Kindle

After many moons of saving--delayed by book-buying and gift-giving--I have finally bought the Kindle.  The newest version. >_>  An e-reader!  Books available in one minute in over 100 countries!  Ect. etc. etc.!  Those on the Underground know many of the Kindle's abilities... ;)  More on that later...

So I went through the tedious processes of grabbing some pictures for ye people.  Now, behold!  The Kindle on a field of white. ;)

                                    Actually, that's the Kindle in its case. ;)  Not the raw Kindle itself.

                Here here!  See the Kindle!  Tis a charcoal one.  Emily Dickinson is the current 'screensaver'.

                                                          The Kindle without its cover.

     And what is this?  It's a bird!  It's a plane!  No, it's my novel! ;)  A bit easier than printing it out, eh?

Behold!  There it is again. :)

Read the title: tis the epic novel 'By Darkness Hid' on my Kindle.  With my hand. >_>

My novel again. ;)

And take a look at this: it's the Underground! :D  In black and white. >_>

And look--there's Millard! :)

So that's my Kindle in pictoral form. >_>  What do ye think?  And ye may expect a post on E-reader vs. Paper soon.  Maybe, maybe not.  I'm terrible at promising posts and then not posting...

The Flow'st Upon a Midnight: Christmas Edition

For now, just for $0.99, you can get The Flow'st Upon a Midnight: Christmas Edition from your nearest music retailer or at MP3 store.  This new hit features such lyrics as the original 'Flow'st' and so much more!


I was singing the other day.  If the glass on the car wasn't extra-strong, they would've broken, but the particular song I was singing was 'It Came Upon a Midnight Clear'.  And all of a sudden....I starting singing something different.  You know those weird times when you are singing one song and suddenly switch to another?  That was one of those times.  It was still the same tune, but the lyrics were suddenly different...

"The Flow'st Upon a Midnight Three," I sang.


Turns out, there's enough voice-warping available for this song, that you can set 'The Flow'st Upon a Midnight' to the 'It Came Upon a Midnight Clear' tune.

C       F        C            
I said to him and he to me.
 F             D7         G7
That I had gone and ate a tree
C                 F        C            
The Flow'st upon a midnight three
  F                    G7     C  
And caused the cat to flee.

So that's my randomness for today. ;)   Other things I have neglected to mention follow: Manny, my sister (older than Vrenith but younger than I) has made a blog!  She actually has two, but the one I personally enjoy the most is 'It Can't Get Any Crazier Than This'.  Check it out! :)  Much pie and randomness etc. :)

Other things may be concerning stories.  I am writing a rather 'whimsical' one right now in the spirit of Alice in creativity has been shot ever since NaNoWriMo, so the other side of my brain (randomness, mwahahaha) has kicked in.  The contents concern hungry cabinets, man-eating mice, cats, cows, and Eighty-five Pounds (a nearby province).

With that....I'm out. :)

Aye, I Have Something Up My Sleeve...

Woh, it's been a fortnight since I hath posted, hm?  Ten days! :O  Shame on me! 

Excuses first, y'know.  ;)  I have been very very very very busy these days, and I haven't TOUCHED my novel since I finished it... I was planning on doing alot of editing, but alas, events have conspired against me!   It is now the fifth of December, and Procrastination--the hideous beast it is--is crouching at my door again.  Agh! :P

But with other news, I have looked into a wonderful feature NaNoWriMo winners have available for them: the code for a free paperback copy of your own novel!! :D  I am going to take advantage of this very soon...providing I can get some editing done. Perhaps a familial Christmas present?

Anyway, I have something up my sleeve.  Soon, on my other blog, I plan to undertake an undertaking, an undertaking called socks.  Or, more specifically, NaNoWriMo socks.  Aye, I see ye know what I mean: I plan to follow in the footsteps of Millard and Whisper and write NaNoWriMo on my socks.

If ye know the story, Millard, on his blog, decided to write NaNoWriMo on his socks, so he did so and published a picture of it in his celebratory blog post.

Now, Whisper, encouraged by Millard, took up her Sharpie also and wrote NaNoWriMo on her socks as well--but she took a video of it!

So, to top it ;) I am going to write NaNoWriMo on my socks, take a video of it, and then post it on my blog!  But to make it unique *mwahahaha* I am going to write with a giant BLUE sharpie!  XD XD  I shall treasure those socks always. :|  It should be an Elvish tradition. ;)

Anyway, I just have to take up the monumental task of either finding Manny's camera for the video or finding Mom's battery-charger.  And when I say monumental..I mean monumental. :|  I have spent the last hour searching for them *sigh*

With that, my randomness of the day is done again!  Until next time, *tips hat*
