J.R.R. Tolkien 1892-1973: A study of the maker of Middle-Earth (1996)

Narrated by Judi Dench.

Posted by the Flea at 06:46 PM


"The night before setting off from home, a future journeyman traditionally hosts a party to say farewell to family and friends. In the course of the night, a hole is made in his or her earlobe for an earring to wear throughout the journey. Tradition holds that anyone who breaks the rules will have the earring torn out, marking that person with a cleft lobe, or a “split-ear,” a term long since adopted in the German language for a crook.

"The morning after the party, the neophyte buries a memento near the boundary of his or her hometown, then climbs over the city limits sign to fall into the arms of fellow journeymen who have gathered to see the new traveler off before they resume their own journeys."

Zizek in the clinic

"Zikek sits in a quiet, dark room, an indistinct stain running down his burgundy T-shirt. His blue jeans faintly smell of stale hamburger.

"He has a client. Uninitiated."

“The cream of life,” he repeated.

Things like this happen sometimes,” I told him. “Inexplicable, illogical events that nevertheless are deeply disturbing. I guess we need to not think about them, just close our eyes and get through them. As if we were passing under a huge wave.”

The Ultimate Comparison

"Rolex and Omega, two brands that are at the pinnacle of modern dive watches, with the Rolex Submariner 116610 often being regarded as the Benchmark, for which others aspire to. But Omega are looking to set the benchmark themselves, and at Baselworld 2018, Omega announced the release of an updated Seamaster Diver 300m, in what can only be described as a compelling package, one that is sure to earn some attention away from Rolex.
So how does the Seamaster Diver stack up against the industry benchmark the Rolex Submariner 116610LN?"

Earth II (1971)

"Earth II was a 1971 pilot, aired November 28 (and released theatrically outside North America), for a television series about a colony established in orbit around the Earth."

Three men are launched from Cape Kennedy in a typical Apollo style launch; a "Red Chinese" agent is killed in the water nearby before he can sabotage the rocket launch.

The President (Lew Ayres) of the United States announces that the three men and their ship will be the nucleus of a new nation, and asks Americans to turn their lights on that night to show support for the project. The astronauts take photos of the Earth's surface as they orbit, to be processed later to determine the level of public support for the idea. The results indicate widespread support for a new nation in outer space.

Emily Graslie - Why did King Tut have a flat head?

"Artificial cranial deformation, or head binding, is a practice carried out by cultures all over the world, and throughout time. Dr. Robert Martin talked to us about how the tradition was implemented by figures of high status in Ancient Egypt."

Jung's Nightmare of Watches

"Except for one sentence pierced by the explicit word 'reality,' almost nothing of what will be told here happened in the distant summer of 1926, when Carl Jung, the psychoanalyst, gave his mistress a gift: a wristwatch without a minute hand. He asked her to wear it even in her sleep, because this watch, so he said, measures the time of love."
