LOTRO: Harry Potter’s sleep inducing effect inspires a vision of LOTR: Frodo the Dude!

14 Jan

Sadly during the last 3 days I have maybe played LOTRO for less than 3 hours… 😦

Tsuhelm has managed to progress to lv51 in Moria.

That is all …

I have been failing to get out of bed in the mornings early enough to play and have not had time in the evenings! Due mainly to RW tiredness induced by falling trees and tidying up the ensuing garden disaster, and coupled with kid and wife duties…which have included the magic of Harry Potter…watched the first 4 movies on consecutive nights. I have found the true magic of Harry is the ability to knock out my nr.1 son and induce massive drowsiness in me! 

I had seen the first 3 so was expecting the somnolence…but was surprised by the continuing zzzz effect of 4… How many more to go?

After last weeks mash up of Hobbit and Pulp Fiction I have been thinking about a LOTR and Big Lebowski mix…Frodo could be the coolest dude ever!

Troll: [holding up a bowling ball] What the fuck is this?

The Dude (Frodo): Obviously you’re not a golfer.


The Stranger(Gandalf?): [voiceover] Way out west there was this fella… fella I wanna tell ya about. Fella by the name of Frodo Baggins. At least that was the handle his loving parents gave him, but he never had much use for it himself. Mr. Baggins, he called himself “The Dude”. Now, “Dude” – that’s a name no one would self-apply where I come from. But then there was a lot about the Dude that didn’t make a whole lot of sense. And a lot about where he lived, likewise. But then again…                  …I won’t say a hero, ’cause, what’s a hero? But sometimes, there’s a hobbit. And I’m talkin’ about the Dude here. Sometimes, there’s a hobbit, well, he’s the hobbit for his time and place. He fits right in there. And that’s the Dude, in the Shire. And even if he’s a lazy hobbit – and the Dude was most certainly that. Quite possibly the laziest in the Shire, which would place him high in the runnin’ for laziest worldwide. But sometimes there’s a hobbit, sometimes, there’s a hobbit. Aw. I lost my train of thought here. But… aw, hell. I’ve done introduced him enough.


Gandalf and Frodo:

The Stranger: There’s just one thing, Dude.

The Dude: And what’s that?

The Stranger: Do you have to use so many cuss words?

The Dude: What the fuck you talking about?

The Stranger: Okay, Dude. Have it your way.

Its obvious I need to play more LOTRO … watching too much Harry Potter is driving me doolally!
