Aragorn being done with everyone’s shit
My friends had a Lord of the Rings-themed wedding on Saturday.

( Aragorn - The Lord of the Rings )
Gondor! Gondor, between the Mountains and the Sea!
West Wind blew there; the light upon the Silver Tree
Fell like bright rain in gardens of the Kings of old.
O proud walls! White towers! O wingéd crown and throne of gold!
O Gondor, Gondor! Shall Men behold the Silver Tree,
Or West Wind blow again between the Mountains and the Sea?
But there, I believe my looks are against me.
How to use your sindarin correctly
Reasons why Viggo is my favorite:
“You’ve explored poetry, painting, photography, and music in addition to acting. Which art form is your favorite?”
Viggo: You know, I don’t really separate them. They’re all the same thing. I don’t think children separate different artistic…they don’t separate themselves either. They don’t say, as adults do, well there are artists and then there are other people. Kids, if they want to draw, they draw. If they want to sing, they sing. If they want to pretend they’re the lone ranger or Aragorn or an elf or a monster, they just do it. They don’t think about it. It’s only adults that make that distinction and I think that everybody, even when they grow up, is an artist. It’s just a way of living, being an artist, and that’s why I don’t separate different artistic endeavors. It just has to do with paying attention, you know? Remembering, filtering what you see and answering back, participating in life.
(As an artist whose practice includes music, visual art, writing, and drama, I get this sort of question all the time. An interdisciplinary practice really is just a single exploration of art, of all the possible venues you have for looking at and interpreting the world. Viggo gets it right.)
