The Rings

Day in my Life - 3
ash nazg durbatulûk, ash nazg gimbatul,
ash nazg thrakatulûk, agh burzum-ishi krimpatul
Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,
Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,
Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die,
One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie

The day: January 6, 2007: Saturday
One of the rare days without any prior commitment or any work to be finished off in the immediate future and most importantly another day off following it. So to spend it decided to watch the trilogy "Lord of the Rings". I had been planning to watch the series for a long time but never got around to watch it. So there I was from eleven in the morning till two in the night in the world of Middle Earth (with a few breaks thrown in between). As all the three parts were in the extended version, total viewing duration came to be nearly 11 hours. For these eleven hours I was in a world of humans, hobbits, wizards, elves, orcs and God Only Knows what kind of creautres. I guess even I was under the power of the ring, watched by the eye of Sauron. It was a pretty enjoyable experience as I went alongwith The Fellowship to The Two Towers watching The King's Return.
At the end of this movie marathon I could understand why "Lord of the Rings" has so many fans. The entire series is simply stunning and brilliant. I too have become a member of the LOTR fan club.

If you do find time out of your busy schedule, read the book! If the movie has impressed you, the book will bowl you over. Also there are parts in the book, that is not there in the cinematic version.
