Dear Ringers and Tolkienites,
I’ve just found out through his owner’s Facebook page that Blanco, better known to all of us as Shadowfax, has passed away. He became very ill in late March and after two weeks at a veterinary hospital for horses, he was finally put to sleep. Cynthia, his owner, who loved him dearly, did all she could and was with him when he went. She is in a very difficult place now, having lost her good friend and having to pay for his medical bills.
I think it’s safe to say that the Tolkien community has been touched by this beautiful boy. He was everything we imagined Shadowfax to be, and a wonderful friend to Cynthia. She has set up a fundraiser to help pay for his treatment bills, as she’s having trouble financially dealing with other issues. If you have anything to spare, please donate to her, out of love and memory for this beautiful horse, who will live on forever in our hearts.
Rest Easy, Blanco. Thank You. ♥
Oh god someone send this to Sir Ian.
Oh No… :(RIDE ON BLANCO SHOW US THE MEANING OF HASTE
I’m crying because of a horse.
Rest in Peace, Blanco.
WATCH: Cookie Monster in… the Lord of the Crumbs.
Legend speaks of a dessert unimaginably sweet and delicious, and when it was destroyed all that remained was the dessert’s powerful recipe. It remained in the hands of a monster named Gobble for a long time, but when it disappeared, all cookies on Monster Earth disappeared along with it. It is up to Cookie Monster to use his memory and remember the recipe in order to bake the cookies in the fires of Mount Crumb.
oh god after watching this one I have to watch all of the parodies.
this is hilarious.
I can’t believe it’s gonna be 10 years since Return of the King won 11 oscars.
I remember it like it was yesterday.
I was in my room with my cat, Lúthien ( who unfortunately ran aways the next year), and I would clap and squeal every time they mentioned lord of the rings. I was 14 and I had school the next day, and since I live in Europe, the show ended close to 5 am. I had glued a sign on my bedroom door saying 11 NOMINATIONS 11 OSCARS! so, the next day my mum let me sleep in and miss school.
Believe me, it’s still one of the most memorable nights in my whole life. I was so happy and so proud.
it was awesome.
"oh well then i’ll go recalibrate cerebro "
Birkhoff really is a nerd
(there are so many more references during the show).
On January 3rd of 1892 John Ronald Reuel Tolkien was born.
An author who changed so many lives including mine. His books will be read for many and many generations to come and he will always be an inspiration and a legend in the english literature.
Thank you for everything, Professor Tolkien.
