Is that you Julia in the black and white dress? The man looks like an accountant somehow. Why do some accountants have all the luck?

Mrs Figg wrote:yes Eldo I think there is a strong connection. The Pre-Raphs were based in Oxford and Tolkien would have ben surrounded by their art, he would have been most influenced by William Morris who wanted to live in a more artisan based mediaeval atmosphere far away from the industrial Revolution.

Thanks Mrs Figg, that makes sense.  I've heard a bit about the Tolkien-Morris connection in particular.  Interesting stuff. Smile

I forgot to mention that Morris was obsessed by Norse mythology as well as Arthurian legends.

Good Gad. I disappear for a few days and come back to find a solid day's worth of videos to watch. This may take a month.

Another incomplete vid. Julia!,,

All these vids, so disparate and interesting. I'm really enjoying exploring Youtubeland through the prism of someone else's choices, but my mind has got so boggled I don't know who I want to be anymore. I must talk to Ol' Anon a about it. cyclops
