The TVM -- the Merry Month of May!

Just as Tolkien and the Inklings used to meet at The Bird and the Baby, come in here to converse about whatever might be on your mind. This is the place for all off-topic conversation.

Have I really not been on here since Thanksgiving?? :shock:

Well, I'm happy to report that I survived the holiday with no trouble (there was a little drama, as anticipated, but everybody was pretty calm, and the tensions had dissipated by the second day). I am very excited to celebrate Christmas this year, and in just a few days I'll be going to see the final Star Wars movie (probably more than once, if it's really good). I'm feeling good, and looking ahead.

Oh, and for the record, my favorite Christmas movie is the one and the only A Muppet Christmas Carol, which is always going to be the best version of Dickens' original story, no matter what. Me and my family used to watch it every Christmas, and I'm trying to decide when I want to watch it this season. I don't want it to be late, but it shouldn't be too early, either. Maybe over the weekend.
Here's a clip, of one of my favorite songs in the movie:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WlRpGj7LWS4

(oh, btw - I got your very lovely card today, Tookish! Thank you so much: I'm afraid I didn't get to send out any cards this year, but I appreciate the holiday greetings and I'll make up for it by trying to be on here more often around Christmas and give everyone some well-wishes and a cup of cheer). :)

Good to hear you came out of Thanksgiving with your brain still intact Thor.

Y'all can keep your muppets...seriously! :D :D

My dad and I watched A Christmas Carol today, the one with motion capture animation/Jim Carrey. I don't like Jim as an actor in most things..but I really like this movie, it is very good adaptation of Dicken's novella. I love the animation in this movie as well..it is breathtaking at times.

Pentatonix was fun! Tooks.. is your vehicle registration expensive in your state? Our state doubled the cost of registration for all hybrid vehicles.. so I had a shocker this year. It was $150 instead of $75.
Yes, Pippin is spry considering she'll be 16 in Spring.

Nice to see you Thor'n. I glad you made it though at least one holiday. :)

I need to do a search and watch some of these holiday movies!

I'd have to say one of my favorite Christmas songs is O Come Emmanuel. https://youtu.be/iO7ySn-Swwc Such a lovely bit of music.

Hellos to basilly, rwhennie, witchy, Otaku-sempai, and anyone else out there! :hihi:

I have a couple of songs that I really love at Christmas time. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bt3Y3HJpXQs

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yh_sCCrkUcw

I love the choices that you all have shared! I don't know why but I struggle a lot at Christmas time. Songs always make me cry this time of year. I noticed this when I first became a mom that songs hit me different then they ever did before. But I still love Christmas and what it stands for.

Witchy... are all your gifs not working? If you change the size I know that will do it. When I search for gifs, I purposely look only for ones small enough to pass muster on TORC.

Also.... love the song. Of course, I have a CD of Pachelbel's Canon in various versions. :D

Rose, I remember that picture from past years. :D

nl!!! Ha ha. Don't be fooled by the innocent looking card. You never know where the spider eggses were hidden. :D :D

PS: Got there pretty fast. :shock:

Sharing Christmas music are we? My brother and I got fed up with the radio's selection a couple years ago and have been curating a Youtube list with all our favorites. It's got both beautiful and beautifully terrible music all mixed together. Here's a sample of the variety:

From a recording we've owned since I was little. Favorite version of my favorite carol. https://youtu.be/vj1m6EWxsZk

A new discovery from this year that I haven't fully memorized yet. https://youtu.be/hFBb6sEdug8

And one that I wish came on the radio a bit more often. https://youtu.be/dBSZJ8CYUEs

Thanks Witchy! And happy first day of winter (or summer if you're in the Southern Hemisphere). Actually, what I tend to do is check "View active topics".

So, I worked out that the Hobbits' six-day observance of yuletide (29 December through 2 January, including the two Yuledays) comes out to December 20-25 in the Modern Era. That's using Tolkien's approximation that our New Year's Day would fall on 9 January in the Shire Reckoning.

I know. Wenchie said the one I sent her had arrived already as well. Has yours? I don't expect Scribbles one to arrive until next year...

*munches on cookies* yum

So if you have any spare snow, peeps what live in the Northern Hemispher, please ship to Oz. We needs the water to put out fires and I'm sick of the heat. One day is 39C the next is 21C. Nutty weather.

When we lived in Philly, we'd hop into a SEPTA trolley for downtown to get our Wanamaker fix, the organ there.
We're nowhere near such a thing these days.

I hope nopony minds a holiday poem from another fandom! This Hearth's Warming carol is from the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic fanfic "Three Nights" by Bradel. The original story can be read here: https://www.fimfiction.net/story/164384/three-nights.

"Three Nights" has been adapted in four parts for Christmas 2019 by the talented Scribbler.
- Part 1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7fCMNXclHAM
- Part 2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A2Lj_xlj5Ps
- Part 3: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nzjke9B_VhQ
- Part 4: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PsruqnXrVz0&t=0s

Cadance’s Carol
Written by Bradel

(Set to the tune of Jean de Brébeuf's "The Huron Carol", a traditional piece of Christmas music.)

Tonight we join and celebrate
A tale of long ago
When snow and ice encased the land
And not a thing would grow
Ere Luna and Celestia
And all we call Equestria

Refrain:
Gather round, tell the tale
Come, join and sing
Of the first Hearth's Warming Eve

The unicorns moved sun and moon
But winter's grip was strong
The pegasi, on clouds above
Could not correct the wrong
With failing crops and starving foals
No earth pony could ease the toll

Refrain

In conference met the pony tribes
But no consensus found
Recrimination ruled the day
And ran all hopes aground
With hate and anger set ablaze
The three tribes went their separate ways

Refrain

Each tribe set out to find new lands
Not bound by snow and ice
And when they did, they met again
For they had found it thrice
Then as their wrath they did reprise
The wind began to bite and freeze

Refrain

To save themselves from winter's cold
They hid within a cave
And one by one, each pony froze
All those by rage enslaved.
But from each tribe one clung to life
As one, they banished hate and strife

Refrain

Tonight we join and celebrate
An end to ice and snow
Three ponies of Equestria
They set their hearts aglow
The flames of friendship burning bright
Have banished endless winter's might

Refrain
