RhoDeo 1349 Hobbit 4

Hello, well I hope you enjoyed the sunday, UK Snooker fans got to enjoy a clash between the no 1 and 2 of the world for the UK title, no 2 Mark Selby ran away to 5-1 probably on the back of his 147 in the semi final a day earlier, but you're not the no 1 in the world for nothing so back came Neil Robertson and in the end a glorious win 10-7. Ah yes those Aussies causing trouble to the old homeland, pity they drew in another poule for the Soccer worldchampionships. On that it's odd how uneven the draw has been, certainly considering the later stages. France qualified last but looks odds on of reaching the semifinals, Belgium too have a clear road, on the other end of the stick Brazil isn't too happy as they are likely to face a tough opponent after winning their group, Spain, Netherlands and Chile are teams that could all reach the semis had they had a better draw. Luck of the draw ah yes my money is on Uruguay to win it.

Ok Hobbitlovers the second part of Jackson's trilogy is out this week, the Desolation of Smaug seems to be a great film if the critic consensus is anything to go by. Brisk, fun, spectacular in parts, these are the most commonly described phrases.

Well in a few weeks time part 2 of the Hobbit trilogy is coming to the screens to get you started the coming 8 weeks a 1968 BBC Radio adaptation of J. R. R. Tolkien's 1937 children's fantasy novel The Hobbit is here. The series was adapted by Michael Kilgarriff and produced by John Powell in eight half-hour mono episodes for BBC Radio 4 ... NJoy

The radio series follows the plot of the original novel (revised 1951 version) very closely, except for the addition of The Tale Bearer, a narrator whose account of the story is often interrupted and embellished by the protagonist Bilbo Baggins in the role of secondary narrator.

Bilbo is approached by the wizard Gandalf to undertake a dangerous adventure, and despite his initial reluctance he soon finds himself accompanying Thorin Oakenshield and his party of dwarves on a long and difficult quest to recover the dwarves' treasure from Smaug the dragon. On the way, he encounters trolls, goblins, and giant spiders, and finds a magic ring with the power of invisibility. The show's production was complicated by the inclusion of multiple sound effects (often inserted live while recording the actors' performances), songs from the novel, and special sounds and electronic voice treatments created by the BBC Radiophonic Workshop. All of the trolls, goblins, elves, wargs and eagles have treated voices, as does Gandalf when imitating the trolls.
