so, a couple of weeks ago i bought the whole lord of the rings soundtrack. yes, all three of them. and it's literally been the only thing i've been listening to since them (except for a little switchfoot.)
the music fills my heart with a feeling that i can't really describe. it's a happy thing, yet it makes me want to cry at the same time. these songs are so perfect. i would list my favorites, but pretty much all of them are. i've been singing 'breaking of the fellowship', 'may it be', and 'into the west' repetitively, and every time i start now, matti yells, "stop singing!"
like, those three songs? are just amazing. i learned how to play them on guitar and piano. (they're actually pretty simple.) even, i have to admit, i do like gollum's song. it makes me feel sorry for him. and there are so many more.
i haven't read the books or seen the movies for a while. but when i listen to the music, and when i find new awesome stuff on tumblr or pinterest, it reminds me...
this evening i talked with my mom about LOTR for, like, a half hour. she probably doesn't like it half as much as i do, but it meant a lot to me that she took the time to do that.
in a way, this doesn't do justice to what i was going to write. it kind of disappeared, and this came in its place. but i'm okay with it.
and, guys? the hobbit. comes out in 159 DAYS.
yes. i'm SO. EXCITED.

p.s. i'm going back to camp for a week, starting tomorrow. i tried to get a guest poster, but i'm not sure if it's going to work out in the end. so this place might get a little quiet for a few days. but hey. it's okay. it's summer. you shouldn't be on your computer anyways.
p.s.s. i guest posted here!
