LOTR’s ethereal Legolas is forever tainted because of Orlando Bloom’s dick

It’s no secret to FOTM readers that I’m a huge fan of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings (LOTR) and Sir Peter Jackson’s movie trilogy.

While my favorite character in the books is the humble and loyal Samwise Gamgee, in the movies the Elven prince Legolas is a close second because of actor Orlando Bloom’s portrayal — ethereal, unruffled, not a (long flaxen) hair out of place even in the midst of battle, with preternatural athletic prowess. Witness this breathtaking scene of Logolas taking a flying leap onto a horse, from the second LOTR movie: The Two Towers.

In fact, it was Legolas that catapulted the then-unknown Bloom to instant stardom, which secured Bloom his roles in the execrable Pirates of the Caribbean and other movies.

But I’ll no longer be able to watch the LOTR trilogy without the disgusting image of Bloom’s penis spoiling all of Legolas’ scenes.

Orlando Bloom, 39, and his current girlfriend, pop singer Katy Perry, were on vacation this week in Sardinia, Italy, and for some reason, he decided to paddle-board stark naked.

New York Daily Post broke the story and published pics of Bloom, but with a discreet black bar superimposed over his crotch.

Other sites, of course, ran with the uncensored version of naked Orlando. Click here, but be forewarned that . . . .

Reportedly, Bloom is mortified, angry and frustrated by the uncensored pics. But he has no one but himself to blame, as no one put a gun to his head to sport around naked in public.

He also has crappy tastes in women:

  • Impregnating before marrying, then divorcing, the narcissistic Australian “supermodel” Miranda Kerr.
  • Briefly dating the slutty-looking Selena Gomez. See her leering like a gargoyle in the Verizon commercial below, looking like a transvestite with a lot of mileage and much older than her 24 years.
  • And now consorting with avowed satanist Katy Perry.

Many of Perry’s biggest hit songs have to do with lesbianism, bestiality, the Illuminati, and selling one’s soul to the Devil — which she admitted on video:

Sunday Devotional: ‘I will be with you always’

In the 40 days after He resurrected from the dead, our Lord Jesus Christ appeared several times to His apostles — in their homes, on the road, by the shores of the lake . . . .

Every time, strangely, His apostles first did not recognize Him. We are told that it’s because He is transfigured — just as we, should we be so blessed, will be in “glorified bodies” when we are resurrected from the dead at the end of this world.

How precious those times must be which the apostles shared with their risen Lord.

And then, 40 days after His resurrection, Jesus told His disciples that He would send them the Holy Spirit and commanded that they be His “witnesses in Jerusalem, throughout Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

“When he had said this,
as they were looking on,
he was lifted up,
and a cloud took him from their sight.”
Acts of the Apostles 1:8-9.

The Ascension

Every time I read that passage, I weep, as I imagine how wrenching it must be for the Apostles to say goodbye to their lord, master and friend forever.

This scene from Sir Peter Jackson and J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings: Return of the King — of Sam, Merry and Pippin saying goodbye to Gandalf and Frodo (both Christ-like figures in their self-sacrificing love for others) forever — captures some of that gut-wrenching grief:

But of course, Jesus would not just abandon His apostles, nor us.

John 14:19, 18, 16-17

“the world will not see me anymore . . .
I will not leave you as orphans;
I will come to you.
And I will ask the Father,
and He will give you another advocate
to help you and be with you forever — the Spirit of truth.
The world cannot accept Him,
because it neither sees Him nor knows Him.
But you know Him,
for He lives with you
and will be in you.”

Not only did the Father send us the Holy Spirit, who lives with us and will be in us, Jesus also left us His Body and Blood:

1 Corinthians 11:23-26

Brothers and sisters:
I received from the Lord what I also handed on to you,
that the Lord Jesus, on the night he was handed over,
took bread, and, after he had given thanks,
broke it and said, “This is my body that is for you.
Do this in remembrance of me.”
In the same way also the cup, after supper, saying,
“This cup is the new covenant in my blood.
Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.”
For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup,
you proclaim the death of the Lord until he comes.

I will be with you always

How very much He must love us . . . .

May the joy and peace and love of Jesus Christ our Lord be with you!

Have you wondered how all the young stars become perverted?

I hesitated to jump on the Hollywood Satanism bandwagon. I held back because of the outrageous nature of the allegation. But now, a trusted insider speaks out. We can only imagine the trouble he is stirring up for himself. Fellowship Of The Minds says, “Thank you, Frodo.”

Elijah Wood: Hollywood Full of ‘Organized’ Child Sex Abuse

by DANIEL NUSSBAUM – 22 May 2016850

Actor Elijah Wood claims that Hollywood’s entertainment industry is rife with sexual abuse of young boys and girls — and that senior figures within it have been protecting pedophiles for decades.

In an interview with the Sunday Times, the Lord of the Rings star — who began acting in Hollywood at age nine — claimed that “organized” sexual abuse of children has taken place in the entertainment industry and compared the situation to that of notorious British pedophile Jimmy Savile…

For Tolkien fans: Real life counterparts of Hobbiton & Minas Tirith

TheOneRing.net reports, Oct. 23, 2015, that illustrator Pauline Baynes recently discovered a map of Middle-earth drawn and annotated by J.R.R. Tolkien himself.

The Guardian reports that Baynes found the map loose in a copy of The Lord of the Rings. The map has “copious” notes made by Tolkien in green ink and pencil, as well as Baynes’ own notes.

Blackwell’s, which is currently exhibiting the map in Oxford and selling it for £60,000, called it “an important document, and perhaps the finest piece of Tolkien ephemera to emerge in the last 20 years at least”.

According to Blackwell’s, the map displays “the exacting nature” of Tolkien and his creative process. He fixes names, gives additional names and reveals details such as Hobbiton “is assumed to be approx at latitude of Oxford,” where Tolkien was a professor.

Blackwell’s also claims that Tolkien wrote “the city of Ravenna is the inspiration behind Minas Tirith – a key location in the third book of the Lord of The Rings trilogy.”

Minas Tirith is the city-capital of Gondor.

The city of Ravenna is located in northern Italy on the Adriatic coast between Milan and Rome.

Here’s a pic of Ravenna. It certainly resembles Minas Tirith!

An archer like Legolas

Legolas

Legolas Greenleaf is the Elven prince of the Woodland Realms in the three volumes of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings.

As portrayed by Orlando Bloom in Sir Peter Jackson’s movie rendition of LOTR, Legolas became a surprise hit worldwide because of his golden locks, physical grace, archery skills, and superhuman athletic prowess, catapulting Bloom to instant stardom.

But Legolas, of course, is a fantasy — a literary and cinematic creation.

Here is a real-life Legolas, Danish archer Lars Andersen who is single-handedly reviving the lost, forgotten art of war archery by his study — and practice — of old, forgotten techniques in historical archery manuscripts.

For thousands of years, the bow and arrow was used for war, but nowadays what archery we know is the distorted version from TV and movies. Andersen shows Hollywood archery has very little to do with actual war archery, specifically:

  • Carrying arrows in a quiver on your back only works if the archer is a target archer who shoots while standing still, instead of real-life war archers who shoot on the run.
  • Historical archers actually carry their arrows in a quiver from their belt, or in their draw hand.
  • Placing the arrow on the left side of the bow is also bad when the archer is in motion. Instead, placing the arrow on the right side of the bow is quicker.

Watch Larson as he rapid-fire shoots one arrow after another; catches an incoming arrow in his hand, then shoots that arrow back; shoots incoming arrows with his arrows; and splits an incoming arrow in two.

Farewell to Middle-earth

Fellowship

Yesterday, the music video for “The Last Goodbye,” the song for the end credits of the third Hobbit movie, The Battle of the Five Armies, that will come to U.S. cinemas beginning December 17, premiered exclusively on EW.com.

Composed by the great Howard Shore, “The Last Goodbye” is sung beautifully by Billy Boyd, who so masterfully played Pippin in The Lord of the Rings movies.

Boyd said:

“After seeing the film [The Battle of the Five Armies], I went to my room and I started to put down some ideas, and along with Fran and Philippa, we started to sculpt the song we thought the movie needed. A lot of ideas took us to dead ends or we found the tone wasn’t just right. I think we discovered very quickly this wasn’t just a song to end The Battle of the Five Armies—it was a song to say goodbye to Middle-earth.

The Lord of the Rings films were such a special time for me in many ways—working with Pete, Fran and Philippa, being in New Zealand, being part of Professor Tolkien’s work or even just the incredible friends I made. And being asked to go back to that, to work in that wonderful fantasy world again and to be singing the song that says goodbye to Middle-earth for everyone involved and the fans who took this beautiful journey with us is truly a great, great honor.”

Indeed, since the Tolkien Estate has not given movie rights to any books other than The Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings trilogy, “The Last Goodbye” is also Sir Peter Jackson’s goodbye to us after his superlative 6-movie effort depicting Middle-earth on film. As such, it is fitting that the music video features Boyd singing to images of the entire saga spanning 6 movies.

Tears . . . .

Lyrics:

I saw the light fade from the sky 
On the wind I heard a sigh 
As the snowflakes cover my fallen brothers 
I will say this last goodbye 

Night is now falling 
So ends this day 
The road is now calling 
And I must away 
Over hill and under tree 
Through lands where never light has shone 
By silver streams that run down to the sea 

Under cloud, beneath the stars 
Over snow one winter’s morn 
I turn at last to paths that lead home 
And though where the road then takes me 
I cannot tell 
We came all this way 
But now comes the day 
To bid you farewell.

Many places I have been 
Many sorrows I have seen 
But I don’t regret 
Nor will I forget 
All who took the road with me. 

Night is now falling 
So ends this day. 
The road is now calling 
And I must away.
Over hill and under tree 
Through lands where never light has shone 
By silver streams that run down to the sea. 

To these memories I will hold 
With your blessing I will go 
To turn at last to paths that lead home.
And though where the road then takes me 
I cannot tell. 
We came all this way 
But now comes the day 
To bid you farewell…. 

I bid you all a very fond farewell.

James Gandolfini of “The Sopranos” dead at 51

gandolfini

I was never a fan of The Sopranos, having watched 10 minutes of an episode and got turned off by the abundant use of the F-word as punctuation.

Nevertheless, it’s still shocking to learn of Gandolfini’s death from a heart attack. Crikey! He was only 51 years old.

Nikki Finke and Nellie Andreeva report for Dateline.com, June 19, 2013:

Actor James Gandolfini died suddenly after a suspected heart attack while on holiday in Rome to attend the Taormina Film Festival in Sicily. He was 51. Gandolfini will be forever known for his portrayal of mob boss Tony Soprano on the seminal HBO series The Sopranos, which won him three Emmy Awards. […]

Overweight, balding, rough around the edges with a thick New Jersey accent, Gandolfini was the opposite of a marquee leading man, destined to be a character actor, and yet he proved through his masterful acting that he could make Tony Soprano sexy and smart, towering and powerful. his portrayal was one of TV’s largest-looming TV anti-heroes — the schlub we loved, the cruel monster we hated, the anxiety-ridden husband and father we wanted to hug when he bemoaned, “I’m afraid I’m going to lose my family. […]

Born in 1961 in Westwood, New Jersey, Gandolfini’s official bio says the Rutgers graduate spent years as a Manhattan bouncer and nightclub manager. He discovered his lifelong profession in the late 1980s when a friend took him to an acting class. He and made his Broadway debut in the 1992 revival of A Streetcar Named Desire with Alec Baldwin and Jessica Lange. […]

Gandolfini’s death at 51 is a reminder to us that life is fleeting.

Use your time well, for we will be asked by our Lord what use we made of the time He’d given us. (Matthew 25:14-30)

“All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us.” – Gandalf, LOTR: Fellowship of the Ring
