Here’s the schedule:

Well! Here we go again =)

    Okay… They’re saying that they’re not doing much for it, except making bingo cards and playlists. First, it’s awesome that anyone is reading Appendix A. Second, what does doing more than not much look like? How does bingo play into this, and should I be doing fancy pants things for the Silmarillion Slow Cooker? Do I need to give away actual slow cookers like some sort of Elvish Oprah?

      Well, I don’t think you want to get into that business. But if you want to know what really doing it looks like, check this random sampling of blogposts out for things that happened for their silmmie read out:

            Good choice. I suppose you have a policy of keeping said friends away from the implements of the trade you have on your person? You know, swords, arrows, that sort of thing. 🙂

            Oh, and Elves cos you mentioned Elvis Oprah. 😀

            Edited to add: Yes, I joined Team Doriath. The choice was clear among the other available options: Ainur, Feanorians, Edain, Angband. But I was a sleeper member – all I focused on were my chapter notes.

        Yeahh… I’m a bit too laid back for Tumblr, I think. Sure, I love projects and I make shirts and prints and used to make books and put on punk shows – I’m not a lazy guy. But this … this is too too busy!

        Though, I could see myself doing some sort of mix CD/print give away to anyone who wants it. Or something. Or not. Really, I just want to focus on the text. I’m not nearly as fun as they are! 🙂

            If I remember correctly, I might not have been remembering correctly. Meaning that the Yes song I was thinking of was either “Sweetness” from their first album or “Heart of the Sunrise” from the Fragile LP. Also, it could have been “Moonchild” by King Crimson.

            There’s a LOT of musical information rattling around in my head.
