The Six Types of Middle-Earth Names

1. Characters whose Names are Secretly Insults: 

Samwise: means “Half-wise” or “Half-wit.” He is Stupid Gamgee

Faramir: Boromir’s name means “steadfast jewel”, but Faramir’s name just means “sufficient jewel.”

Sufficient.

Denethor took one look at baby Faramir and thought “eh I guess he exists or whatever” which is very in character

 2. Characters who Have Way Too Many Names

Examples include Aragorn son of Arathorn son of Arador heir of Isildur Elendil’s son, descendant of Numenor,  Thorongill,  Eagle of the Star,  Dúnadan, Strider,  Wingfoot, Longshanks, Elessar, Edhelharn, Elfstone, Estel (”Hope,”) The Chieftain of the Dúnedain, King of the West, High King of Gondor and Arnor, and Envinyatar the Renewer of the House of Telcontar

Wait I’m sorry did I say “examples” plural

Cuz that was all one guy

3. Characters whose parents must’ve been prophets

-Frodo means “wise by experience.” His story is about becoming wise by experience
-A lady named Elwing turns into a bird (geddit)

4. Characters whose families were so lazy that they copy-pasted the same first half of a name onto multiple people

Théoden/Théodred 
Aragorn/Arathorn/Arador 
Éomer/ Éomund/Éowyn/Éorl
Elladan/Elrohir/Elrond/Elros/Elwing/Elenwë/Elendil/Eldarion (the laziest family) 

5.Characters whose Names are Expertly Designed so that Newbies can’t Remember Who is Who and Feel Sad

All the people mentioned in number 4
Celeborn, Celegorm, Celebrimbor, Celebrian
All the rhyming dwarf names in the Hobbit
Sauron and Saruman
Arwen and Éowyn

6. Name so nice, you say it twice

Legoas Greenleaf: Legolas’s first name means “Greenleaf” in elvish. Legolas is Greenleaf Greenleaf (thranduil really likes green leaves ok)

King Théoden’s name means King in Rohirric. Tolkien decided to name his king “King.” All hail King King



 this is what the fanbase means when we say tolkien was a creative genius with language

HARRY’S NEW DIRECTION

The meticulously planned debut of the single at 8am on Friday will kick off an Adele-style campaign to establish Harry as the world’s biggest male star. The superfan of David Bowie, Mick Jagger and Paul McCartney wants to be taken seriously as a songwriter and musician – and will distance himself from the teen pop direction of his former band. A source close to the star tells me: “Harry isn’t a typical popstar. This is an art rock project – and he wants to let the music do the talking.” Harry has spent months secretly ensuring that the music has a timeless quality reminiscent of Bowie and Prince at their peaks in the 70s and 80s.

He has rejected the current move towards dance music and his first release will, in fact, run to five minutes long. The song is so shrouded in secrecy that it is on just two iPods, which have no internet connection to stop hackers leaking the tune. Many who have listened to the song have been asked to sign legally binding non-disclosure agreements. Quietly determined Harry has been very personally involved in every aspect of the music, which has been produced by Jeff Bhasker who was behind the international smash hit Uptown Funk. My source adds: “Harry has written the songs and the meanings are very personal to him, based on his life. He has also been playing the guitar and the piano as well. He’s a very modest guy, but it was important to him that this music represented him totally.

Access to Harry is going to be severely limited during the international campaign. The headline-grabbing star is desperate to avoid discussion of his personal life, especially romances with celebs such as Taylor Swift, Kendall Jenner and Caroline Flack. And he also wants to avoid any discussion about his relationship with his 1D band members, who he has seen just a handful of times in the year-and-a-half since the split.

Harry has agreed to appear on BBC1 favourite Graham Norton – but he will only perform and not join the other A-listers on the sofa of the hit chat show. 
He’ll also appear on US TV institution Saturday Night Live and give one in-depth interview to his BFF Nick Grimshaw on Radio 1 to coincide with the single release.

The source explains: “Harry doesn’t want to talk about his personal life or be asked constantly about One Direction. It’s not his style. He’s spent his entire life having his every move scrutinised. He doesn’t feel the need to do interviews or the promo circuit. There will be a couple of very big appearances to keep TV and radio on board, but it will be very limited and he’s learnt how to say very little. Harry’s idols are people like Bowie and Jagger. He’s closely studied their careers and that’s the direction he is heading in. He loves the sense of mystery they maintained around them.

Harry’s small team of advisers is led by his manager and close friend Jeff Azoff, the son of music giant and Eagles manager Irving. Also intimately involved are Sony Music Entertainment chief executive Rob Stringer and Sony Music UK chairman Jason Iley – a sign in the importance of Harry’s success to the future of the company. He is being advised on PR by Dawbell, the company that also represents Harry’s close friends and personal mentors James Corden and Gary Barlow. Stringer has said of the project: “We obviously want everything to be beautifully done, because we think he’s here to stay. Harry has stepped up with the vision of someone who’s authentic.”

IT’S been 479 days since Britain’s most successful ever boy band One Direction took their final bow.

But now the group’s breakout star Harry Styles is preparing for the biggest pop launch of the decade with the release of hugely anticipated debut single Sign of the Times.

Floppy haired heartthrob Harry is winched from a helicopter above remote farmland shoreline in a secret location in Scotland earlier this week.

In fact, everything has been secret about this project…until now.

I can reveal the meticulously planned debut of the single at 8am on Friday will kick off an Adele-style campaign to establish Harry as the world’s biggest male star.

Very rare footage of "6.1 THE MEN", the joint presentation of Yohji Yamamoto Pour Homme and Comme des Garçons Homme Plus F/W 1991 in Tokyo on June 1st, 1991.

This was the first time that both designers had presented their menswear in Japan. The shows were modeled by musicians, actors, and various other creatives - even some members of Yohji’s company, if I am not mistaken.

The two men being interviewed in the video are (in order) Haruomi Hosono and Yukihiro Takahashi of the legendary electronic trio Yellow Magic Orchestra, with the famed Ryuichi Sakamoto being the third member.

Below is a more thorough explanation of the show’s theme and significance, followed by an extremely valuable and hilarious first hand account of the show and a certain happening backstage, told by German guitarist Ottmar Liebert who was invited to model for the show - Courtesy of Asobu from Styleforum.

A/W 1991, as far as I know, showed in Paris at the end of January 1991 and then showed again together with CdG in Tokyo on June 1st and called “6.1 THE MEN”. Still one of the most talked about and coveted collections by Yohji fans in Japan from what I can tell, many of the pieces still catch quite large sums on the second hand market. The theme was “war”, several musicians including Charles Lloyd and John Cale (who also modeled in A/W04 btw) modeled the show and apparently sang some antiwar song together at the final part of the show (the collection was created and shown during the gulf war). Some of the signature pieces was the leather jacket with women prints on the back (he referenced this in “my dear bomb” as well, when he talked about nose art of american fighter planes being pictures of “girlfriends and sexy ladies” when heading into battle), zipper jackets and Joan Miró inspired blazers.

This is a great story from Ottmar Liebert about his experience when he walked the show, well worth the read.

“In 1991 the Japanese designer Yohji Yamamoto, together with Comme des Garçons, was putting on the first men’s fashion show in Japan and asked me to be one of his runway models. At the time Yohji prefered to use actors and musicians over models and he has also used athletes in the past. I flew to Tokyo from Los Angeles and was picked up at the airport and taken to a very nice hotel in Tokyo, which Frank Lloyd Wright had designed in the sixties. The show took place in the Olympic swim stadium of Tokyo, where the pool had been covered by a runway stage. On each end of the runway a huge wall was erected. Behind one wall Yamamoto was set up and behind the other wall Comme des Garçons. 

Comme des Garçons : Dennis Hopper, Trumpet player Don Cherry and his son Eagle-Eye Cherry (a TV presenter in the UK and not yet the pop star), British actor Julian something or other, Keyboardist Morgan Fisher (who later produced the wonderful CD "Miniatures” to which I contributed a piece)… 

Yohji Yamamoto : Charles Lloyd, Edgar Winter, a member of YMO (one of Japan’s most famous bands, which also featured Ryuichi Sakamoto)… Yohji and his people treated everyone wonderfully. And then he made a mistake on the day of the show. 

Thinking we were all men instead of the stars some felt they were, he offered as part of the refreshments Japanese cans of beer. In Japan cans are tiny, they are cute and many of the guys probably thought that one couldn’t possibly get drunk from drinking tiny cans of beer….well, if you drink a dozen of them you do get drunk, you know! And then a British pop singer asked a French rapper to turn down the crap on his boom-box and the French guy responded with his fist, which fractured the pop guy’s jaw. While he was rushed to the hospital Yohji’s people frantically searched for somebody who could wear his clothes…. In the end one of Yohji’s French employees took his place and wore the clothes well. I felt terribly embarassed. Here we were in one of the great cities of the world, guests of a real artist, and these men had to get into a fight. What a way to repay Yohji’s kindness! But fame is fleeting and karma instant.. I never heard from the British pop star and the French rapper again…

I remember how amazed we were at the Japanese audience. Some had waited since the early morning hours and yet, when the doors opened the first in line went to the last seat instead of claiming the best seat in the house. It was almost biblical…

One thing I remember about the show itself is that Yohji, who is a guitarist himself and also produced the soundtrack, had installed sound triggers along the runway. We were invited to step on those triggers, each of which controlled a different sound that would blast over the music. Car crashes, industrial sounds, drum breaks, glass breaking, guitar riffs etc…I also remember that the Brit who was walking ahead of me was drunk or high or both and thought that the crowd’s enthusiasm was directed at him instead of the clothing…I remember three or four people helping me change into the next outfit, grabbing shirts, pulling on shoes…I remember the late Don Cherry walking around on the runway like a court jester and greeting the other Comme des 
Garçons walkers…“

Times when Fashion really seemed to be about the passion and love for the beautiful creative work of these designers. Inspiring.

eomma-eagle  asked:

Hi! Can I have a written ship with bigbang, got7, exo-m, and monsta x? I have an odd sense of humor and I tell terrible jokes. I tend to be the mother and leader around my friends. I love drawing, singing, playing video games, and doing crafts. I'm laid back for the most part, but I do get my sparks of energy (they tend to last for a while ^^'). My music taste ranges, and I enjoy finding new genres to listen to~

Hello, my dear!


In BIGBANG, I ship you with… Daesung!

“YAHHHH! JAGI, STOP! I can’t take it anymore!”

This giant ball of giggly fluff would be the perfect match for your cute personality. Because he is a trot singer and a very gifted variety actor, he has been blessed with the ability to entertain the masses, and you have the ability to entertain him. Daesung would love your terrible and corny jokes so much that he would would almost crave them. He would ask you to tell him a joke no matter where you were, and then he would almost collapse from laughter. There would be times where to two of you would have a pun battle just to see who could make more jokes. You would teach him some jokes and puns in English, and he would teach you some in Korean. It would be what the two of you bonded over. These jokes would bring you closer together and would cause the members to sarcastically label you the ‘Comedy Couple.’ Every now and then, Daesung would sneak in a really cheesy pick-up line just to hear you giggle.~


In EXO, I ship you with… Lay/ Zhang Yixing!

“Again? Baobei~ It’s 11PM. There aren’t any craft stores open! *sigh* I’ll go get the car. *cutely smiles*”

Yixing is the type of guy that would support you no matter what. You have a craving in the middle of the night. He’s already putting on his coat before you can finish your sentence. You want to go to the craft store multiple times a day because you started multiple projects in one day. He’s down. Yixing would mainly just sit and watch you make your wonderful creations, since he’s “no good at it.” Sometimes he would sit at the keyboard and play a little something just to give you some background music. However, there would be a few crafts, ones that you beg him to do with you, that he would finally give in to doing. Those were the ones that you would hang all around your room to remind you of the time that a little paint on the nose turned into an all out war with paint everywhere. They remind the two of you of the smiles and laughs that you share together and the ones still to come.~


In GOT7, I ship you with… BamBam!

*During an interview* “A message for my girl?… What’s good? When I get home, I’m going to kick your butt in (insert your favorite game)! I mean it this time!”

BamBam won’t let you get away with kicking his butt in every game that the two of you own. When the two of you first met, it would be at a PCbang when the two of you just happen to sit next to each other. Even though you are a fan, your laid back nature let you handle the situation pretty well, which BamBam appreciated greatly. The two of you would talk casually and end up seeing each other every week. The two of you became good friends talking about video games, PC and console. Then the two of you began to get closer. At the beginning of your relationship, he would pretend to let you win, but little did he know that you were actually going easy on him. The first time you unleash your true power, he would be speechless, and from that day on, he would vow to exact his revenge.~


In Monsta X, I ship you with… Shownu/ Son Hyunwoo!

“Five more minutes… *goans* What do you mean you already woke up the kids? *drags his sleepy, cute self out of bed*

As the dad of Monsta X, Shownu handles a lot of the important tasks, like trying to round up and organize the boys. However, he didn’t know that he was getting a little guardian angel when he met you. You have a caring side to you that automatically make you the mom of the group, which makes you perfect for Shownu-appa. When you and Shownu start dating, you got close to the other members as well. Soon you would have a relationship with all of the other members like the ones you have with your friends. However, you didn’t mind being the mom friend. After all, it’s what you are used to, and you see how much rest Shownu is getting with your help. That was just something you couldn’t give up on. Shownu would just be so happy when he’s well rested, and who doesn’t like to see that cute smile of his every chance they get?~


Thank you for requesting, love! Don’t worry~ I’m the mom friend too! It’s a tiring job, I know lol~

Daemon AU!

Quicksketch about Dami, Jon and Billy.
Characters © DC comics.

My friends and me, we were talking about this AU and think of something legit for DC’s characters.. And this is some of the results we achieved:

Damian Wayne’s daemon is white Bengal tiger.
Jonathan White’s is Guinea pig.
Billy Batson’s is Eagle.

Bonus, Afred’s is honey bee and Clark’s is.. hamster (her name’s Saret 💕) on my sketch.
Bruce’s is Tibetan Matiff dog…

The tale of the Eagle is an Albanian folk tale that explains how Albania and Albanians received their indigenous name: A youth was hunting in the mountains. An eagle flying above him alighted on top of a crag. The eagle was especially large and had a snake in its beak. After a while, the eagle flew away from the crag where it had its nest. The youth then climbed to the top of the crag where he saw, in the nest, an eaglet playing with the dead snake. However, the snake was not dead. Suddenly it stirred, revealed its fangs and was ready to pierce the eaglet with its deadly venom. The youth quickly took out his bow and arrow and killed the snake. Then he took the eaglet and started for his home. Suddenly the youth heard above him the loud whir of the great eagle’s wings.

“Why do you kidnap my child?” cried the eagle. “The child is mine because I saved it from the snake which you didn’t kill,” answered the youth.

“Give me back my child, and I will give you as a reward the sharpness of my eyes and the powerful strength of my wings. You will become invincible, and you will be called by my name!”

Thus the youth handed over the eaglet. After the eaglet grew, it would always fly above the head of the youth, now a grown man, who with his bow and arrows killed many wild beasts of the forest, and with his sword slew many enemies of the land. During all of these feats, the eagle faithfully watched over and guided him.

Amazed by the valiant hunter’s deeds, the people of the land elected him king and called him Shqipëtar, which is to say Son of the Eagle (shqipe or shqiponjë is Albanian for eagle) and his kingdom became known as “Shqipëria” or Land of the Eagles.The two heads on the eagle represent the north and the south.

Growing Pains

Seeing Boruto being his own person made me sad, so I did what I always do when I’m sad. I wrote about it.

Here’s Hinata realising her baby boy is growing up. (Boruto’s about 5-6 here).

For narutowhat, who like likes a good Sunshine Family headcanon.


Hinata Uzumaki (nee Hyuga) loved both her children equally and never played favourites but when she thought of her eldest – Boruto – she felt, among the other emotions, appreciative.

Her baby Boruto – in being her and Naruto’s first born – was basically the guinea pig to their parenting and every time she saw him functioning and behaving like a well-established boy, she felt appreciative, thankful and proud.

Her son had his quirks. He was loud, he was cheeky and he was mischievous. He was just like his father at his age.
