Tolkien Recites the “One Ring” Passage

Pretty cool stuff!  I saw this via Twitter via @CatholicBloggs who got it from The American Catholic, who found it from Creative Minority Report, who got it from Badger Catholic (somewhere), who (I’m assuming) found this YouTube video below!

While I think that the movie depiction of Gandalf translating the language of Mordor on the ring to Frodo in The Fellowship of the Ring is sufficient already to satisfy my need for epicness, this is another type of epicness… where the author is reading his own words:

One does not simply recite The Lord of the Rings.
