I like Rachmaninov. Threatening piano is cool as gently caress.

e: Rachmaninoff. Phone posting has been doing this weird thing where it won't register additional text or changes if I switch tabs before posting.

You reminded me of one of my favorite classical music/comedy duos.

The "All Star" intro of Shrek by dreamworkshas more emotional resonance and cultural significance than the "Carl and Ellie's married life together" in Up by pixar.

mostly i'm okay with the situation because i can find things i like and i don't care if a lot of music i don't really enjoy is also getting made



I don't care if the music they play on the radio sucks. I don't even really know if it sucks, because I don't listen to the radio. If I can go on Spotify or Youtube or wherever and keep finding new and interesting songs, things from around the world, even in languages I don't know... This era is a great time for music. Accessibility and ability to support artists more directly are wonderful things.

Like, this literally doesn't happen anywhere in the books. There are some spoons that one character has been trying to steal from another for years. She is a bad person.

There are sections of the books (mostly the back end) where Tolkien deliberately mimics the structure of the old epics (that would list whole genealogies for pages upon pages - as in The Aeniad), but it's not constant throughout all six.

His prose pays special attention to landscapes and ancestry because they inform the characters (via History) and frame the stakes of the quest. To say it's "just world-building" is dense. The story and characters are intimately concerned with the passage of time and its effect good and bad, the death of the country idyl etc.

The language stuff is a sidenote in The Lord of the Rings itself, the pop-culture idea that it dominates his writing is based on appendices and different works published after his death.

And taking issue with the songs is the dumbest criticism I've ever heard as the book is a musical so how can there not be songs?
