Note to all members
We are currently preparing to change the setup of this forum to focus more on imaginative & creative gnosticism, because we feel we should distance ourselves from the way thegodabovegod.com is increasingly aligning itself with conspiracy thinking.
We respect Miguel's choice of course, but that does not mean that we agree with it. We feel that conspiracy thinking is contrary to gnosis. It's simply not where we want to go.

If anyone is interested to continue a forum affiliated to thegodabovegod.com I am willing to help. Maybe you could start using the relevant part of this forum as a basis. Please contact me (Lúthien) if you are interested.

We've not yet fully decided on how to proceed; but I think that we should in any case cut the link with thegodabovegod.com (including the page there that links to the forum). We will also re-structure the forum, and put the old Ilsaluntë Valion board that focuses on Tolkienian gnosis up front again.
I will update this message as soon as there is something new to say.

Re: Melian

That is beautiful. http://www.emoticons.free.fr/smileys/Emotion-Happy/smile2.gif I took the liberty of trying to translate it into Sindarin. It is just literal - no meter and rhyme preserved. I can try to do that but I suppose it is really hard. Melian, rîn dinnu rovain! Na linnad lîn onel elei an a...

Re: Music that 'takes me closer to the legendarium'

I put some of this on yousendit to download. I am curious if they do the same thing to you as to me. I know that not a lot of people appreciate, say, that piece by Badings. It is very unusual. I mean - it is not like Howard Shore's LOTR movie music. I don't mean that I think one is better or whatnot...

Re: Music that 'takes me closer to the legendarium'

Wow, I haven't heard of very many of those!  maybe I can upload a couple of them today. I really like Carvin Knowles "The Fellowship" Project, the album called "In Elven Lands."  Their song "Tir Im" is on our website, as well as their MySpace link if you want to listen to other songs.  "Elvenhymn" ...

Music that 'takes me closer to the legendarium'

My apoligies for the clumsy title. I could not think of a better one so soon. I mean to say - that there is music that 'seems to open doors' inside me, or maybe doors to somewhere else, for instance, to the Tolkien legendarium. It is often words that do that, but also pure music sometimes picks me u...
