Hello everyone, I’m still alive in this crazy time we find ourselves in, it’s been a hell of a century since this all started. It’s been hard on everyone I think, and despite having so much more time to write now, it’s been almost two months since I wrote a single word. These are the […]All That Matters is the Ending: Star Trek: Picard
I’ve never really explored the differences between these two franchises from a fan’s point of view. Obviously, people know me as a staunch Star Wars fan and supporter, but I am also a fan of Star Trek.Star Wars vs. Star Trek

Restored from Tolkien’s manuscripts and presented for the first time as a fully continuous and standalone story, the epic tale of Beren and Lúthien will reunite fans of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings with Elves and Humans, Dwarves and Orcs and the rich landscape and creatures unique to Tolkien’s Middle-earth. The tale of Beren and Lúthien was, or became, an essential element in the evolution of The Silmarillion, the myths and legends of the First Age of the World conceived by J.R.R. Tolkien. Returning from France and the battle of the Somme at the end of 1916, he wrote the tale in the following year. Essential to the story, and never changed, is the fate that shadowed the love of Beren and Lúthien: for Beren was a mortal man, but Lúthien was an immortal Elf. Her father, a great Elvish lord, in deep opposition to Beren, imposed on him an impossible task that he must perform before he might wed Lúthien. This is the kernel of the legend; and it leads to the supremely heroic attempt of Beren and Lúthien together to rob the greatest of all evil beings, Melkor, called Morgoth, the Black Enemy, of a Silmaril. In this book Christopher Tolkien has attempted to extract the story of Beren and Lúthien from the comprehensive work in which it was embedded; but that story was itself changing as it developed new associations within the larger history. To show something of the process whereby this legend of Middle-earth evolved over the years, he has told the story in his father’s own words by giving, first, its original form, and then passages in prose and verse from later texts that illustrate the narrative as it changed. Presented together for the first time, they reveal aspects of the story, both in event and in narrative immediacy, that were afterwards lost.by
It is here you can get a more full history and understanding of this love story and the rise of Morgoth. Now please keep in mind, I am not bashing this book. I just made the mistake of reading The Children of Húrin first. So I had a mind set of a stand alone story, only to find it was more of a history/poem novel. So that kinda lead to my… I don’t want to say my disappointment… But it left me with a “meh” feeling haha. I guess if you really want to look at it. It’s almost like The Fellowship of the Ring and how it reads. Except the Fellowship severed more as a stand alone novel kinda..
At any rate, I would say check it out if you have the time and are a big Tolkien fan.
Ment to share this earlier with the with pile of comics I got. But I instead shared on Twitter, and it had an interesting response. As a kid I use to collect Wizard magazine remembering all the artwork and interviews. All the fan art and posters /tradibg cards they came with.
But upon sharing my find, I found out I was not the only one who was still collecting them. It was almost like open the barn door just a little bit and boom! I had an number of people share their stories with me and the issues that they had. I have to say the whole thing has been really cool. Made me realize how much I miss collecting these magazines and comics.
