Being at SXSW (a Texan festival that showcases talents in music, film, and -er- dorkery) and seeing competitors sharing a beer, or a dislike of arbitrarily-chosen digerati, or a spotty network connection - I, like many, find Abraham Lincoln's words whispering through the foggy ether of days after - "Of strange, discordant, and even hostile elements, we gathered from the four winds, and formed and fought the battle through, under the constant hot fire of a disciplined, proud and pampered enemy."

But tomorrow we return home. A little poorer, sure. A little wiser. And generally more, well, pamper-y.

    hey, I came across your elvish name generator and have a question. Do you actually base these names off Sindarin or Quenya or both? and are they at all relevant to the meaning of your actual name? Just curious. I've been studying Sindarin for a while now. What does Idril mean? I know Helyanwë means rainbow in Quenya, but can't figure Idril out.
    Do give me a reply if you get the chance at
