Coming July 18, 2014: THE SILMARILLION READ-ALONG
If you were involved with the Lord of the Rings Read-Along, you already know how awesome this is going to be, but for the newbies, here’s the deal: From mid-July to mid-November, we’re going to read through Tolkien’s The Silmarillion together week by week. It’s a great opportunity for first-timers and old fans alike to enjoy Tolkien’s works with other Tumblr fans like you while also sharing our own fanworks.
And in case that description wasn’t enough to get you excited, here’s a promo trailer I made for the event (the words are easier to read if you watch if fullscreen, sorry about that.) If you have any questions, you can find me at tolkienreadalong.tumblr.com - I hope to see you all there!
(Oh, and please reblog this, or make a promo post of your own - the more people find out about the read-along, the more fun it is for everyone, believe me!)
Okay, this is the last Silmarillion Read-Along promo post I’m going to force on you guys, I promise. It starts tomorrow, so if you’re not interested now, there’s no hope for you, lol.
A Parisian apartment left untouched for over 70 years was discovered in the quartier of Pigalle a few summers ago and I’ve been meaning to share the pictures with you. Time to unlock the vault …
The owner of this apartment, Mrs. De Florian left Paris just before the rumblings of World War II broke out in Europe. She closed up her shutters and left for the South of France, never to return to the city again. Seven decades later she passed away at the age of 91. It was only when her heirs enlisted professionals to make an inventory of the Parisian apartment she left behind, that this time capsule was finally unlocked.
The team that had the honor of opening what must have been a very stiff old lock for the first time in 70 years, likened the experience to ‘stumbling into the castle of sleeping beauty’. The smell of dust, the cobwebs, the silence, was overwhelming; a once in a lifetime experience.
There is a further twist to the story. In the apartment a painting of familiar style was discovered of a beautiful woman in pink. One of the inventory team members suspected this might be a very important piece of treasure. Along with the painting, they also found stacks of old love letters tied with colored ribbon.
With some expert historical opinion, the ribbon-bound love letters were quickly recognized as the calling card of none other than Giovanni Boldini, one of Paris’ most important painters of the Belle Époque. The painting was his. The beautiful woman pictured in the painting was Mrs. de Florian’s grand-mother, Marthe de Florian, a beautiful French actress and socialite of the Belle Époque. She was Boldini’s muse. And, despite him being a married man, she was also his lover. The art world went a bit nutty for the whole story and the painting was later sold for $3 million at auction.
