New Player Question

Thanks for listening!



  1. Lovely episode! I find it quite relaxing to listen to these updates. I was also very curious what the title would be about. I did not anticipate it would be about me.
    Kind regards, NOT a potato! =P

  2. I am not sure that Tolkien’s books were ever offered to Disney for them to make films, as he stated that he very much disliked films from Disney in the 1930s.

    “It might be advisable, rather than lose the American interest, to let the Americans do what seems good to them – as long as it was possible (I should like to add) to veto anything from or influenced by the Disney studios (for all whose works I have a heartfelt loathing).”
    -Letter 13, May 13 1937.
