At the beginning of this year I decided to do Tolkien haul posts every three months and the first one was for October-December 2014. Well, it’s been about three months so it’s finally time for another haul post! I surprisingly have a lot of stuff to show you guys, I didn’t expect this. Here’s a photo of everything:
In 2009, when I was 16, I went to the Fellowship of the Ring Concert in Radio City Music Hall. I remember very clearly how I found out about this event. I was sitting outside somewhere in Union Square with a friend and she showed me The Onion. I never read that paper before, and while I was flipping through the pages there was a full page spread advertising the concert. I froze and let out a strange, deep, loud gasp and yelled out “WHAT IS THIS???” Pretty sure I scared my friend.
I spent the next few days begging my mom for tickets. I ended up selling some of my LOTR action figures (I know I know, I MISS THEM) to afford the tickets. I just HAD to be near the front. It would have been an equally amazing experience even if I was near the top. I went with my dad and we had some pretty good seats.
(Sorry for the crappy photos)
I wish I could have shaken his hand! Oh well. Seeing him was wonderful anyway.
This was the highlight of the year for me.
This is a photo of me after my dad and I left. Can you tell how exhausted I was? Good day. Very good day.
