The Lands of Rhovanion: a companion piece to this
Hey guys, there’s a repost of this going around. Please, please reblog this version!
*sigh* rhovanion is so beautiful
rohan in particular is my favourite area
Our DIY heater ^.^
Kat watched a video the other night on cheap ways to heat a room with every day items. You get a baking tray, put 4 candles in it, then place a small sized ceramic pot on top, cover the hole to stop heat escaping and then place a bigger ceramic pot over the smaller one.
The theory is that the smaller one traps the heat and heats up (which it does and it’s to hot to touch). Then because the bigger pot over hangs the tray the heat from the smaller one sucks in cold air, heats it up and pushes it out the hole at the top of the bigger one.
We did this last night and it honestly made a difference in our biggish living room, totally took the chill off. Though I’ll probably make another one to warm our room up perfectly.
Plant Pots - Free from the previous occupiers of this flat.
Tray - £2 from Asda
Tea Lights - 2p each when bought as a huge pack
This is a really neat idea
so guess what happens right after this
GO SIT IN A CORNER AND THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU JUST SAID
I don’t think I’ve ever regretted a text post this much before because i have seen exactly what happens after this and I’m still in pain from it
I haven’t even seen the film yet BUT I CAN GUESS FROM HAVING READ THE BOOK WHICH SCENE THIS IS
Composer Jim Wilson has recorded the sound of crickets and then slowed down the recording, revealing something so amazing. The crickets sound like they are singing the most angelic chorus in perfect harmony. Though it sounds like human voices, everything you hear in the recording is the crickets themselves.
The recording contains two tracks played at the same time: The first is the natural sound of crickets played at regular speed, and the second is the slowed down version of crickets’ voices.
“I discovered that when I slowed down this recording to various levels, this simple familiar sound began to morph into something very mystic and complex……..almost human.”
