The inimicable Mel K. is with me completing another "Home and Home" series of appearances. Mel,like her show on Rumble, is fearless and always a good time. In our last chat she let it slip to me that she spent 18 years in the belly of the beast, not Mordor on the Potomac, but in Minas Morgul on the Pacific, Hollywood.That, to me, screamed "Movie Podcast," and that's what's on tap for today. It may seem a little 'off-brand' but for us, nothing ever is. So, relax and enjoy a trip through the predictive programming wasteland that is Horrywood! (and that's a Spielberg reference, folks)Show notes:The Mel K Show on RumbleMel on GabTom's recent appearance on Mel's Show
Description This week, Nate walks through the path we are currently on en route to the Great Simplification - a path towards a “Mordor Economy”. Based on data from colleagues Art Berman and Carey King, Nate untangles the complex relationship between biology, GDP, and net energy. How is an economic metabolism based on a need for growth creating a pathway for increasing amounts of energy to be directed to the energy sector itself? Why hasn't the rapid growth of renewables satiated our energy appetite? How is the use of credit masking the full energetic-cost of energy? Can we proactively take the necessary steps to reset the balance between energy efficiency and energy consumption to pass through Mordor unscathed and arrive at the Great Simplification?

Andrew and Riley are back in the mines, talking about who is fit to bear the one ring to Mordor. Riley thinks that the characters from Lost can do it, but only if they have a confessional cam for their trip. Andrew thinks that the entire cast of MILF Manor could pull it off, but only if they have their sons by their sides.

In “The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers”, the second volume of J.R.R. Tolkien's most famous high fantasy novel, the narrative splits into two major streams. One follows the ringbearers into the foothills of Mordor, the other follows the rest of the original Fellowship as they enter the world of Orcs, men, and even Ents. These divergent paths expand the horizons of Middle Earth, test our favourite characters, and introduce some new ones. Far from a flop, this follow-up instalment may have two timelines but from Blake and Seamus it's easy to stay on the same page.

Har vært på en liten miniturné med showet på Vestlandet. Har hatt en kjøretur jeg ikke unner Jan Helge Andersen. Har sprukket på VM-boikotten og mye, mye mer.

The A-Team couldn't have pulled off a caper with four B.A. Baracuses , U2 never would have been a hit with four Bonos, and nine Legolases couldn't have gotten the One Ring to Mordor. Putting together a good team is about more than just a mix of skills, though, and in this episode Jim and Mike talk about balancing personality types to build a team of winners. Some people are daring and some are risk-averse. There are process people and results people. For every rebel, there's an i-dotting, t-crossing rules follower. All these personality types can bring something to a team; this kind of diversity really is strength! Selecting opposites that compliment each other is a valuable leadership skill. Most important is the self-awareness of what you bring to your team, and who can back you up in your blind spot. Links: Warnings Unheeded by Andy Brown Like what we're doing?

Of all the scenes to be left out of Peter Jackson's movie trilogy, the Ring's temptation of Sam on the threshold of Mordor may be one of the most inexcusable, since it highlights both his character and teaches us some “plain hobbit sense” in the process.

After exiting the Gold Standard in 1971 the US dollar has been on a steady decline as a store of value. This all reminds me of the Lord of the Rings. Humans were too greedy to carry the ring to Mordor because of our thirst for power and only Frodo could complete the mission. The Gold Standard was our Frodo and now that we've left that system we are at the mercy of human greed. Is there a way to come out ahead of all this turmoil and chaos? Tune in and find out!

On this 100th episode of the Nerd Heaven Podcast, I discuss the Star Trek Continues episode "Come Not Between The Dragons" a deeply thematic episode starring aussie sci-fi royalty - Gigi Edgly of Farscape Fame. Join me as we discuss the episode and it's themes, and then reminisce a little over the last 100 podcasts. (Place button to listen at bottom of page) ----more---- Transcript Welcome to Nerd Heaven. I'm Adam David Collings, the author of Jewel of The Stars And I am a nerd. And it's a big moment. This is episode 100 of the podcast. How insane is that? When TV shows make it to 100 episodes, it's a big deal and they usually celebrate by doing something special. I'm going to spend a bit of time reflecting on the past, and maybe having a little fun, at the end of this podcast, But first, we're going to be talking about the Star Trek Continues episode “Come Not Between The Dragons”. The description on IMDB reads A troubled creature pierces the Enterprise hull, pitting the crew against a pursuer that threatens to tear them apart. The teleplay was written by Greg Dykstra, James Kerwin and Vic Mignogna The story was by Greg Dykstra It was directed by Julian Higgins And it first aired on the 28th of May 2016. And just a little warning, this episode deals with themes of violent abuse by a parent. The first thing you'll notice that's special about this episode is the presence of Aussie sci-fi royalty - Gigi Edgley. Most famous for her role in Farscape as Chiana. In this episode, she plays Ensign Eliza Taylor. And the cool thing is, they let her keep her Australian accent for the role. I don't hear many familiar aussie accents in Star Trek, so I found that pretty cool. While I gave up on it too early back in the day, I've become quite a fan of Farscape, so it's very cool to see her here. By the way, I can't believe I didn't notice it, but a few episodes back, in The White Iris, the character of Amphidamas, the alien representative, was played by another member of sci-royalty, Colin Baker, who played the 6th Doctor on Doctor Who. I'm unbelievably embarrassed that I didn't notice and comment on it. Sorry about that. This one starts off seeming to be a monster story. But we'll soon learn that it's not. This is a real thematic message show, but one with a real difference. Scotty is currently in command. Eliza Taylor hands him a padd. And then Kirk enters. 8 ships have been destroyed studying an accretion disc. But the crew have been rescued It's very telling of Scotty when Kirk says “at least there were no casualties” and Scotty says “there were - the Lexington.” With the shift over, Smith and Eliza leave the bridge. Smith and McKennah are heading to the rec room, and they invite Eliza to join them. I get the impression she's not quite part of their little friendship circle, but they're welcoming her in. And isn't that just the way a friendship group should work? I know it's not easy. You really need an extrovert in your group to do the inviting, but cliques are not healthy, and being excluded can be quite hurtful - even for an introvert. The Enterprise suffers a hull breach from a meteorite travelling near light speed. As Chekov says, “that should be impossible.” But I'd have to believe that an object travelling that fast making impact with the ship would have to completely destroy it, so there must have been some substantial and rapid deceleration. Whatever it is, is moving through the ship, from Deck to deck. Scotty can't find it. As we end the teaser, we see that whatever it is has broken into Eliza's quarters. But we don't see it, only her reaction. This is an okay use of the ‘hide the monster' trope because we'll almost immediately see what she's seeing after the credits, but her reaction gives us a powerful hook. And Taylor isn't sure what she's looking at just yet. We experience it with her as the thing slowly unfolds. Some kind of lifeform. Hard and rocky with glowing eyes and a part that looks almost insectoid. This creature was a practical effect. The alien was designed by the writer of this episode, Greg Dykstra, who appeared in the previous episode as the union doctor. He pitched this story to Vic because it was very personal to him. We'll get to that. Dykstra designed the alien and then they got a creature effects company to actually build it. It was huge. An actor could wear it as a suit, but it was very heavy and hot, so the guy they cast needed to have breaks. I'm a big lover of CGI creatures, but I have to admit that this alien works very well as a practical effect. It looks awesome. It provides a link to the original series who always had to use practical effects, because CGI wasn't a thing yet. It's also fitting because we have a Farscape actor in this episode, and Farscape was really into practical creatures, being made by the Jim Henson company. The alien stands tall. Much bigger than a human. It's bipedal. Taylor cowers in the corner and throws something at it. It retreats. I'd say Taylor reacts in a very non starfleet way here. She's trained to experience the unexpected. But she may be a new officer. This might be her first experience with the unknown. And despite all your training, seeing something like that in person for the first time could be quite scary, especially if it suddenly appears in your quarters. So I can't judge her too harshly. It doesn't take long to find the intruder. It rips holes through walls. It's not exactly subtle. Kirk begins by assuming the intruder is intelligent. He asks if it understands him. The lack of reply certainly doesn't imply a lack of intelligence, though. Kirk calls the transporter room and asks the chief on duty to beam it out of here. Now when I hear that, it implies to me that Kirk wants it beamed into space. But he asked the chief about his intra-ship beaming skills. Either way, Kirk's order is very imprecise. Where exactly does he want the chief to beam the intruder to? In any case, the alien can shield itself from scanners so they can't transport it. Kirk's next action is strange. He throws some debris at the alien. The alien reacts pretty much as any lifeform would to being attacked. It lashes out in self defence, requiring security to stun it with a phaser. I'm not sure what Kirk was trying to accomplish there, but it certainly didn't help build any rapport of trust between them. Kirk and Bones have found some fascinating things about the creature's biology. It's a unique lifeform - probably natively spaceborn. It has multiple hearts and no lungs. But all McCoy's tricorder will register is a rock. Again, suggesting the creature can shield itself from their sensors. Spock and Uhura have configured the universal translator to better work with the alien's unique vocalisations. I don't know that we've ever seen a hand-held universal translator like this in TOS before, but I could be wrong. In the TNG era, we know that Starfleet universal translators are embedded in the com badge (while Ferengi use implants in the ear) Kirk gives the honour of speaking to the alien to Taylor, as she was the first human to encounter it. This is a big deal. First contact is what Starfleet are all about, afterall. Taylor seems to carefully consider what her first words should be. She wisely, in my opinion, chooses to start with “I'm sorry if I hurt you.” and then asks what it's called. It replies, Usdi. When asked why he came here, Usdi replies “Me. To. Hurt.” That doesn't sound good. Is it a threat? It's hard to tell with such a limited understanding between them. Usdi is an example of a cosmozoa, a space-fearing lifeform. His species is called the Utana. Something out there is using a form of echo-location to search for something. The shockwaves are damaging to the ship. When the next wave hits, Spock begins to act very strangely. His voice filled with anger, he calls Udsi disobedient and demands his respect. Fires a phaser at him. He then attacks Taylor when she tries to intervene, and blames it on Usdi. This, I believe, is a common thing with people who struggle with extreme anger problems. Blaming the subject of their anger for their own actions. Something is clearly going on with Spock. He's not himself. Perhaps in a literal sense. But others are feeling it too. Kirk is the first to vocalise his concern, in a way, opening it up for others in the bridge crew to discuss what they're experiencing without fear of judgement. Checkov is feeling suspicion and paranoia. Spock's in a bad way. We learn that the part of the brain responsible for suppressing emotions in Vulcans is called the mesiofrontal cortex. So that's pretty cool. But it's working so hard right now McCoy is worried it'll burn up. Spock is filled with powerful emotions. But they're not his. Spock is also physically injured. Possibly from his dust-up with the alien. He asks Spock to lock him up. He's dangerous. Something dark and dangerous in his Vulcan mind is being awoken. Kirk would do well to follow Spock's recommendation here. Spock knows what he's talking about, and currently still has the presence of mind to communicate it. The next wave is stronger than anything so far. It drives Spock to rampage through the ship after the alien. He says “Usdi is hiding from me.” He looks like he'll tear the alien limb from limb. After Kirk stuns him, he orders Spock put in the bridge. McCoy argues against this, because Spock is not himself. The funny thing is, Kirk is right. He's absolutely right. For the wrong reason. He's wanting to put Spock in the brig as punishment for insubordination. McCoy is right that Spock isn't himself, but he needs to be put in the brig for his own safety, and the safety of those on the ship. When McCoy helps Kirk realise that he's not himself either, that he's filled with unnatural anger, he changes his turn and has Spock taken back to sickbay under double restraint. Yeah, good luck with that. The brig was the best option for now. He still needs medical care, of course, but I wouldn't be trusting any restraints, double, triple, or quadruple, in sickbay when the next wave hits. By the way, this is the third episode in a row to have original music composed by Andy Farber. And I have to give it to the student musicians that are performing it, they're brilliant. While all of the crew are experiencing elevated levels of anger, and lowered patience, Kirk and Spock specifically seem to be experiencing anger directed at Usdi. It's like when Spock was stunned, Kirk became the new puppet of this force. Kirk refers to Udsi as a delinquent brat. He also describes him as disobedient and undisciplined. I'm embarrassed to say the first time I watched this, I didn't put it all together until later, but watching it now, it all seems so obvious what we're dealing with. Taylor is hiding Udsi in her quarters. She calls in McKenna for help. She doesn't know who else to turn to. Taylor has figured out that Udsi is familiar with these waves. And he gets more and more afraid each time one of them hits. McKenna is now having her rage directed at Udsi, as the latest wave hits. “You must have done something to deserve this,” she says. Could it be the proximity to Udsi is what focuses the rage, while those who've had little or no contact with him just feel general anger directed at whatever is at hand? But the most interesting thing of all is that it's pretty clear at this point that Taylor is not being affected. She may be the only one on the ship that is truly herself. McKenna is very aware of her condition. She's trying to push through it. But it's hard. Taylor made a wise choice here. As a trained counsellor, McKenna may have more tools at her disposal to fight this anger than the rest of the crew. She genuinely wants to be free of it. She needs alpha wave generators. When she says “Leave McCoy to me” I wasn't imagining she'd just slug him in the face and knock him out, but it was effective. She can't fight the anger in her, but here she was able to use it for something good. Well, not that punching McCoy is good, but it's for a good cause in helping her in her mission. She asks for the alpha generators from a nurse, but not chapel. She calls her Sarah. While I like seeing familiar characters show up in this show, it's kinda cool that they're filling out the medical staff. It often felt, in TOS, like McCoy and Chapel were the only two medical officers on the ship. We know this is not true, of course, but the budget likely didn't allow for filling sickbay with extras. Scotty is reacting to all of this a little differently. Rather than getting angry at everyone, he's having a lovely old time drinking. Scotty hasn't had contact with Udsi, so his priorities are different. He cares, as he always does, about his engines. They have now cured a couple of crew members of the anger influence. They have McKenna, Uhura and a redshirt. They figure that Usdi is hiding from the ship that is generating the waves. But he's not talking. The redshirt figures out if they move Usdi to engineering, the ship might have a harder time locating him. He's able to simulate Scotty's voice using the universal translator, and a little technical magic from Uhura. He calls for an evacuation of engineering. But Kirk sees through it, because he knows Scotty is in the brig. Once engineering is cleared, all they need to do is beam there with Udsi. Saves trying to drag him through the ship in front of crew who want to attack him. Smith finds McKenna and the transporter chief in the transporter room. She's still under the influence of the waves. Kirk should be here soon as he told Smith to meet him here. We're not sure what he's doing on the way yet. Smith insists that Udsi is going to get what he deserves. McKenna gets her to stop and think a little when she asks “Why”. Smith can't answer, because she's being motivated not by logic or reason, but by emotions. Emotions that are clearly not hers. McKenna's question, and her offer of an alpha generator definitely gives her pause. If Kirk hadn't called her, she might have relented, but a conflict ensures. Possibly not a great idea of McKenna's to attack her while she was distracted. Smith is clearly the better fighter, and the fight only serves to feed the anger. I'm noticing that in this episode, there's a real focus on the female characters. Taylor, McKenna, Smith, Uhura. They're all taking on significant and powerful roles. But the episode doesn't make a big deal about it. And I think that's the best way to do it. I recently watched the Star Trek animated episode “The Lorlelai Signal”. That episode came up with a convoluted way to put Uhura and other female officers in charge of the ship, and then have Uhura do very little. This episode succeeds well where that one failed. And I don't know if this was even a deliberate and active choice, to make this a female-centric episode, or if it just ended up that way. And I think it's better for it. Contrast this to that scene in Avengers Endgame which just felt a bit on-the-nose to me. Anyway, I'm loving it because these are great characters played by great actors, and I'm enjoying seeing them get to do much more than the original series would have allowed them. I'm especially enjoying how they're developing Smith. Usdi is communicating with Taylor again. She says she understands, but we're not hearing a verbal translation this time. So … I'm not sure how that works. Kirk beams in with Smith and several security officers. Kirk has a big phaser rifle, so that's what he was up to. That's not good. All 4 of them fire their phasers at Udsi. Luckily, he survives. His body is essentially made up of stone, afterall. Interestingly, the Utana feed on space-born rocks and minerals. Those under the influence are subdued, mostly because of quick thinking on the parts of Taylor and Uhura. With generators on their arms now, they'll all be able to think clearly. Honestly, I'm not sure it would have gone down that way. Kirk and his team seem to be the better fighters, and they all started armed with phasers. But let's apply a little suspicion of disbelief so the good guys can win and move the plot forward. The ship has arrived in visual range, but it's not a ship. As the image appears on the monitor, we see that it's another Utana, but much bigger than Usdi. The entire crew are wearing alpha generators now, so we've resolved that particular conflict and moved on to the next. I think that was a good choice for the script. We don't want an entire episode of mutiny among the crew, because ultimately, that's not what this episode is about. Kirk surmises the difference in size between Udsi and this attacker could be the difference between an adult and a child. And he's right. Greg Dykstra actually chose the Cherokee word Udsi, which means little, as the name of the alien. When we first see him, he seems anything but little, but now, as we realise he's a child, and he's very small compared to the adult outside, the name makes sense. Scotty apologises for his behaviour. Hardly necessary, since they were all in the same boat. Kirk's answer “I'll fire you later,” reminds me of a line he'll say much later in Star Trek 3. “Fine. I'll kill you later.” The adult refuses to respond to hails. It attacks the Enterprise. I wouldn't necessarily expect a space-born lifeform to be able to receive and respond to subspace radio signals. But anyway. Spock points out what might be their only logical option to survive this. Release Usdi into the adult's custody. But how can they? That thing wants to kill him. Kirk finds an alternative. Fire a torpedo at the part of the alien's body that seems to be generating the destructive waves. When Usdi sees the attack against the adult on the screen, he says “Usdi protect.” Taylor misunderstands. Usdi isn't asking for protection. He's stating that he must protect the adult. Taylor goes to the bridge to explain the situation. The alien out in space is Udsi's father. Usdi has left the ship. Positioned himself between the Enterprise and his father. The attack has stopped. If we haven't already figured it out, we realise at this moment what this episode is really all about. This is about parental abuse. Greg Dykstra wrote this story because there was a history of this kind of abuse in his family. His grandfather had been a violent abuser. It had affected his father and grandmother profoundly. He wanted to explore that theme, and a Star Trek episode turned out to be the perfect tool for that kind of thematic expiration. The creatures look at each other - moving their heads. Most likely engaged in communication we can't perceive. Now it's time for Kirk to make one of those famous Starfleet captain speeches. He points out that while all the entity's anger was directed at his child, Usdi still protected him. Udsi saved his life, because The Enterprise would have killed him. Only time will tell if that will make a difference. This is the heart of the message that Greg Dykstra wanted to get across. That despite the hurt and damage caused by an abusive parent, the victims of that abuse still love the parent. It's a complex paradox. A difficult one. There's a nice scene between Kirk and Spock. I'm noticing that over time, Todd Haberkorn is winning me over more and more as Spock. It just took a little longer than with Kirk and Scotty. But he really is doing a good job of it. Kirk is used to being able to persuade others with words. He's frustrated that he was unable to convince Udsi's father to change. Spock points out that the alien had a deeply ingrained behaviour. Did he really expect to be able to change that with words? With one conversation? This also, is very thematic. I'm sure there are many loved ones of violent abusers who want so desperately to change that person. But it's probably not an easy task. In the case of Greg Dykstra, his father learned to move on from the experience, but his grandfather never changed. Never overcame that darkness inside him. Ultimately, Kirk didn't expect silence. But maybe silence isn't so bad. Maybe silence represents thinking. Maybe a contemplation of one's own actions is better than lashing out. Kirk wonders, what would it take to change someone like that? Spock's answer, “one is better able to lead someone down an unfamiliar path when one has already been down that path oneself.” Wise words. Kirk is a little surprised to learn that Spock has regular conversations with McKenna about life and people. This, I believe, is the first hint of a growing connection between those two characters. We'll continue to explore it, to see where it might lead. They've found where Udsi and his father have gone. Kirk goes to see Taylor. “I wasn't able to reach him, but maybe you can.” Spock's words have sparked an idea in Kirk. And I think maybe he knows something about Taylor that we don't yet. Gigi Edgley's acting in this scene is wonderful. (not to mention the CGI shot of the Enterprise parked next to the cloud) Taylor knows that Usdi came to her for a reason. “Your son loves you very very much. Just like I love my father,” she says. “I know in your heart that you're not a monster, but every time you lash out in anger at your son, you become less the father he loves, and more the monster he fears. Please, find a way to heal yourself. Because my father never did.” The alien says one word back. “Heal.” “Change for Usdi.” I'm sure this alien has a difficult challenge ahead of him, but maybe, just maybe, he can do it. Because Taylor reached him. Wow, what an emotional scene. Huge credit to Gigi Edgely for this. What a legend. And huge credit to Greg Dykstra for a powerful story. This episode is something of a masterpiece. This is true Star Trek at its core. One of the things I love so much about this episode, is that it's a thematic episode, it's a message episode, but there's nothing political or controversial about it. It's the kind of message I've never seen in a TV show before, but it's an important message. The creators of this show found something important to say that not many others have said before. And I'm not saying sci-fi shouldn't address political or controversial issues, but I think this episode left the well-trod paths and found something new and interesting to say. When we watch a show like this, it's easy to think, “well, obviously this is not for me. This is for those deeply problematic people, those violent abusers, the ones with the real problems. But maybe rather than thinking about others we know who need to hear this, we should stop and think, what can I take away from this. Most of us are not violent abusers. But most of us who are parents, at some point, have become exasperated with our children. Have lashed out and treated our kids more harshly than they deserve, because of frustration. Maybe it's because the child has genuinely done something really bad, or maybe it's pressure in life that has nothing to do with them. I know from time to time, I've taken the time to stop and examine my parenting. To ask hard questions of whether I'm taking my frustrations out on my children in a way that I shouldn't. To see if there are any changes that I need to make in how I parent. And I think that's a healthy thing to do. For the sake of our kids. Anyway, Star Trek Continues never fails to impress me. It's just a whole other level above most other fan productions in so many ways, and honestly, sometimes better than actual real Star Trek. So as I said. This is episode 100. I still can't believe I've been talking about sci-fi for that long. It seems only yesterday that I started Nerd Heaven. It was the 6th of December 2019 when my first podcast went live. I talked about Star Trek: The Next Generation “Best of Both Worlds.” I was doing a little series in the lead-up to the launch of Star Trek Picard season 1. Covering episodes and movies that I had selected as a good lead up to the new series based on what I'd seen in trailers. It was a fun little series and allowed me to cover some old favourites. I remember I'd recorded just enough episodes to release one weekly until the premier of Picard episode 1. I did them in a big batch and scheduled them for release so they'd drip out while I was away on an extended Christmas holiday. We visited family in Tamworth, New South Wales, and then took a carnival cruise to New Caladonia and Vauatu. What a wonderful experience that was. After finishing Picard season 1, I did a few random things. I talked about my own history with the Star Trek franchise, I covered the remaining TNG movies I hadn't already talked about, and I watched Stargate Origins: Catherine for the first time. I also started looking at Lord of The Rings, both the book and the movies. I never actually finished that series though. I was doing a walk to Mordor challenge, but the unexpected pandemic kind of got in the way of that. I then started going through the movies of the DCEU. I really love some of those movies, like Man of Steel and Batman V Superman. And I had a lot to say about them. After making my way all the way to Shazam, it was time for Star Trek Discovery season 3 to come out, so once again, I covered this show live as I did with Picard. This was really challenging. I'd watch the episode on Friday night just for fun. Then I'd watch it again on Saturday morning, taking notes. Then I'd record the episode, and spend most of Saturday afternoon editing and publishing it. It really did consume a lot of my weekend. In addition to doing a travel vlog on youtube, this is when my writing life really took a hit. I no longer had time to work on my books. After I finished Discovery season 3, I knew I needed to make a change. I couldn't keep up this pace. And there were so many other content creators covering new Star Trek. I couldn't compete with them. Even today, after 100 episodes, I only average around 10 to 20 listeners per episode. Not big numbers. Not enough to justify the huge amount of work I was putting in. I needed to have the freedom to spend time with my family. So I made a switch to covering retro stuff. Doing re-watches of old classics. Stuff I'd loved in the past that I really wanted to talk about. The obvious choice there was Stargate Universe. A divisive show. A show that so many dismiss. But I knew the show had something to say. And I knew I had a lot to say about it, beyond just the question of whether it's good or bad. While this was a less crowded niche, I didn't suddenly become a superstar, but I did pick up some new passionate listeners, which I really appreciated. In any case, I now have a complete set of podcasts discussing every single episode of SGU. That will stand forever as something people can find and enjoy. And I'm really proud of that. After finishing SGU, I jumped into Star Trek Continues because again, there were things I wanted to say about it. And I'm having a blast. So what lies in the future? I'm not sure. I have plenty of ideas of shows I could talk about after I finish Star Trek Continues. The biggest challenge I face is balancing all my creative endeavours. This podcast, my travel vlog, and my writing. I still don't have all the answers, but at least I'm not burning myself out like I was this time last year. I'm pleased to say that I have got back into my writing and at the time of recording, I'm nearing the time where I'll finally publish book 3 of Jewel of The Stars. I can't wait to talk about that in a future episode of the podcast. I want to thank all those who have listened to this podcast. I'm sure my audience has changed over times as I've covered different shows. I don't know if there's anyone listening who's been around since the early days, but if there is, let me know. Because that would be really encouraging. Next time, we're talking about the Star Trek Continues episode “Embracing the Winds.” Until then, have a great two weeks. Live long and prosper. Make it so.

I use this RPG trope taken from tvtropes.org, called "Beef Gate", to encourage and motivate you to stretch yourself, to step out of your comfort zone, and to challenge yourself to live a better life. It's been said that "the magic happens outside your comfort zone" and I fully agree. And to add to it, "One does not simply walk into Mordor" also seems to fit with the idea of earning our destiny through intentional struggle and effort.If you want to make positive changes in your life, you have to see that massive goal and prepare yourself for it. Keep your eye on your goal and remind yourself that you're taking steps in the right direction.I hope it helps!Original video: https://youtu.be/GSGaZ6pa1ok ***Connect and Support Geek Psychology #geekpsychology ***Socials, courses, and 1-on-1 coaching services: geekpsychology.com INFP only community and safe place and INFP MasterclassGeeky Myers Briggs Personality Type MerchSupport on Patreon
Overcoming to be in the Bride (1) (Audio) David Eells - 11/23/22 Overcoming the Flesh to be in the Bride Winnie Osegueda - 3/27/22 (David's notes in red) I dreamt that I was in my uncle's house whose name is Christian. (Christian means follower of Christ. His house represents the “house of discipleship.) He is a doctor in real life. (Christian represents the Lord who is our healer.) I was sitting in a room building some plastic toy sets and then putting them on display in different areas of the room, which seemed to be a hobby for me in this dream. (This represents being distracted with the vanities of this world.) (As we will see, this represents spiritual immaturity. Play-acting is a large part of what goes on in apostate Christianity.) There were different types of toys including toy dinosaurs. (Many don't know that they are playing with the Dragon). My uncle Chris entered the room and I instantly felt ashamed about the toys and told him that I was not playing with them, but just putting them together to put them on display, although I knew it was a bad excuse and that this was not something I should be doing. (We can't make excuses for our poor choices. We just have to repent and turn away from them.) I also felt ashamed because I also was aware that I was overweight (Representing too much flesh). This room I was in seemed to be a room for the "immature," as I could hear two people arguing in the background, although I do not recall who they were. (We must leave our immaturity behind to grow in Christ. 1Co. 13:11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I felt as a child, I thought as a child: now that I am become a man, I have put away childish things.) I then heard some dogs barking outside of the front door. One of the dogs was a white pitbull with brown spots and also a black dog as well. I began to pet the black dog, as he seemed to be pretty docile, but then my uncle Chris's wife named Olivia (meaning olive tree) said to me, “The dog just wants to come in." She had seen this dog before and was aware of his intentions and so she was warning me. (If we indulge and encourage our flesh represented by the black dog, it will grow stronger and will have a foothold in our lives and take over our house.) Then, I saw a white cat with black spots in a bush. (Representing rebellion and self-will). I went over to it because it seemed to be crying out, so I felt sorry for it and thought I should feed it (We can't feel sorry for our flesh or feed it.) Then Anna (Meaning “Grace") came up to me and told me not to feed the cat, but to throw it in the water. A large body of water then appeared next to the bush on the right. The water was moving like an ocean the way it does at a beach and I threw it into the water. (We must get rid of self-will and any other sin by drowning the flesh nature with the water of the Word. [as in a Baptism unto death.]) The scene changed and I was back in the house. (When we get rid of self will and rebellion then we are able to come back into the “house of discipleship.) There was something important being shown on the TV and a sister was intently watching. I stood there and watched with her. Although I do not remember every scene that was playing, what we saw was the Word of God coming to pass, and we could also see the judgement that was happening around the world. I remember, towards the end, seeing smoke and fire, as well as a large mountain on fire. (When the Man-child returns, He will bring judgement to the kingdoms or “mountains” of the world. 2Pe. 3:5-7 For this they willfully forget, that there were heavens from of old, and an earth compacted out of water and amidst water, by the word of God; 6 by which means the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: 7 but the heavens that now are, and the earth, by the same word have been stored up for fire, being reserved against the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men.) This "movie" touched the sister deeply, and she put her arm around me and gave me a kiss on the cheek. She began to weep and apologize for any unforgiveness that she had towards me. I was also emotional and I told her that I forgave her too. This sister had a very humble spirit and I saw a supernatural change the Lord had done in her right before my eyes and I was amazed. She was beautiful. I then felt my uncle Chris lovingly put his hand behind us as we embraced like he was praying for us. (Jesus brings reconciliation to His disciples in His Body.) The sister then laid down on a bed (Representing entering into the rest)(Repentance and forgiveness allows us to have rest from the tormentors. Because of unforgiveness it says in Mat. 18:34-35 And his lord was wroth, and delivered him to the tormentors, till he should pay all that was due. 35 So shall also my heavenly Father do unto you, if ye forgive not every one his brother from your hearts.) Suddenly, I looked down at my hand and my wedding ring appeared back on my finger. (In real life, a while back, I had lost my wedding ring and I was very sad about it.) It was supernatural how the ring just appeared back on my finger. I walked over to the sister and said, “Is this real?!" She touched my ring and said "Yes, it's real.” (Repentance, forgiving others, and humbling ourselves allows us to be part of the Bride). I was overjoyed and this felt so real, I thought I had my ring again when I woke up. I asked Chuc to get me a verse by faith at random and he received: Pro 28:26 He that trusteth in his own heart is a fool; But whoso walketh wisely, he shall be delivered. I received by faith at random: Eph. 6:14-18 Stand therefore, having girded your loins with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 withal taking up the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the evil one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: 18 with all prayer and supplication praying at all seasons in the Spirit, and watching thereunto in all perseverance and supplication for all the saints. “Rock Man” Helps Us to Overcome Our Flesh Ben Slojewski - 11/20/22 (David's notes in red) Before I went to sleep that night I repented to the Lord to take me away from worldly desires and to give me encouragement to get me through trials and temptations because some old spirits were trying to get another “rise" out of me. When I fell asleep I was looking in the perspective of a 3rd person overview, but I knew that the main characters, throughout this dream, represented me in some way. There was a big city (Representing Babylon) and I knew that a disaster was gonna come at any moment and there was a precious ring that I had in my possession. (God is bringing judgment upon Babylon and it's inhabitants that can't escape the lusts of their flesh. This Ring represents our discipleship and marriage to the Lord which gives us power.) In the far outskirts of the city I knew that there was a creature that wanted this ring. This creature looked identical to a character named Gollum from Lord of the Rings. (This creature represents our flesh nature that wants to usurp the power the Lord has given us and use our lives for it's own lustful and evil purposes.) In The Lord of the Rings it is stated that Gollum was originally a hobbit named Sméagol who became corrupted by a Ring of Power. Gollum referred to the Ring as "my precious" or "precious", and it extended his life far beyond natural limits, but ownership of the Ring came with curses on the individual in possession of it. Centuries of the Ring's influence twisted Gollum's body and mind and he "loved and hated [the Ring], as much as he loved and hated himself.” (In the wrong hands power can be abused and be very destructive. Our flesh has many lusts that eventually destroy us if they are not repented of.) Throughout the story, Gollum was torn between his lust for the Ring and his desire to be free of it. (Gal. 5:17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; for these are contrary the one to the other; that ye may not do the things that ye would.) In the story, Bilbo Baggins found the Ring and took it for his own, and Gollum afterwards pursued it for the rest of his life. Gollum finally seized the Ring from Frodo Baggins at the "Cracks of Doom" in Mount Doom in Mordor. Mount Doom was where the Ring had originally been forged and was the only place that it could be destroyed. When Gollum seized the ring, he fell into the fires of the volcano, where both he and the Ring were destroyed. (1Co. 5:3-7 For I verily, being absent in body but present in spirit, have already as though I were present judged him that hath so wrought this thing, 4 in the name of our Lord Jesus, ye being gathered together, and my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus, 5 to deliver such a one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus. 6 Your glorying is not good. Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump? 7 Purge out the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, even as ye are unleavened.) Back to Ben: "Gollum" was excited to get the ring and knew exactly where it was. All he was waiting for was the right timing. The whole premise of this “game” I was caught up in, was to keep the ring away from Gollum. It seemed easy enough but I was in the form of a dog and wasn't able to fight. (The dogs return to their vomit, i.e. keep returning to their sins that they once rejected and repented of. 2Pe. 2:20-22 For if, after they have escaped the defilements of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein and overcome, the last state is become worse with them than the first. 21 For it were better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after knowing it, to turn back from the holy commandment delivered unto them. 22 It has happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog turning to his own vomit again, and the sow that had washed to wallowing in the mire.) So I went running down the highway to get out of the city. (We must get on the Highway of Holiness to escape our flesh and Babylon. Isa. 35:8 And a highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but is shall be for the redeemed: the wayfaring men, yea fools, shall not err therein.) Gollum was gaining fast on me in my "dog form" and was gonna catch me in no time. (When we return to our sins, our flesh gets stronger and stronger and we are in danger of being consumed by them once again.) In an instant I was picked up in a helicopter and flew so fast, which helped me put distance between Gollum and me. (This represents the grace of the Holy Spirit who helps us to escape our flesh nature and abide with Christ in Heavenly places.) I also noticed that the highway was getting narrower and narrower the further I went down it. (Mat. 7:14 For narrow is the gate, and straitened the way, that leadeth unto life, and few are they that find it.) All of a sudden, a flat stone wall was in front of me and the helicopter crashed into it. This allowed Gollum to gain some ground and catch up to me. (The enemy likes to put up road blocks and barriers to bring us back down to the earthly things and separate us from Christ.) Gollum was very close but I seemed to have turned into some sort of "scarecrow form" and I was able to have a much easier time evading Gollum in this form. (Scarecrows help to scare away the beasts and the unclean birds who want to steal our seed that the Sower, Jesus, put into our hearts and eat up our spiritual fruit of Christ in us. Mat. 13:3-4,19 …Behold, the sower went forth to sow; 4 and as he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the birds came and devoured them... 19 When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the evil one , and snatcheth away that which hath been sown in his heart.) We were no longer on a highway but in a place that had a stone maze and I was still evading Gollum quite easily. He got close a couple of times but I was able to evade or break free from capture. (This represents the confusion, doubt and unbelief that the enemy traps us in our minds. We must overcome the mind of the flesh by casting it down. 2Co 10:5 casting down imaginations, and every high thing that is exalted against the knowledge of God, and bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ;) All of a sudden a great tornado lifted all the walls and roof in this maze and there was nowhere else to evade. I changed forms again to a real man in white clothing. We were floating in the sky in the tornado on the old, stone, maze floor. (The tornado is the power of God and His Word, which is Christ our foundation, that clears out the confusion and lifts us up into the heavenlies to fight in the righteousness of Christ.) There was nowhere to run from Gollum at this point and I had to fight him. (We can't keep running from ourselves and our old nature if we want to escape the curse.) I wasn't scared and I was sort of itching for the fight at this point and confident. I knew I could fight in this new form that I was given. (The form of this "real man dressed in white" represents the exchange that the Lord made for us on the cross, by His power, to defeat our sin nature.) It was a very close fight and we were both fighting with various “abilities” [or powers]. It seemed like the longer we were fighting the more angry Gollum got (he didn't want this to be a long fight). This made him become bigger. This didn't scare me because I was prepared for a long fight and I knew, in the end, I was going to win. (The flesh will try to fool us that it is too big for us to conquer, but when we remain in heavenly places in Christ, and in His Word, we are assured to win the battle against our old flesh nature, because we have the precious promises of God.) We kept fighting and damaging each other and he kept getting bigger and more resilient to my attacks when, out of nowhere, a huge Rock Man came to my side to fight Gollum. (“Rock Man is Jesus who is our Rock. 1Co 10:4 ...they drank of a spiritual rock that followed them: and the rock was Christ.) "Rock Man" had a spear and had amazing abilities that I couldn't do yet, but I wanted to learn. (Luk 10:19 Behold, I have given you authority to tread upon serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall in any wise hurt you.) I didn't even need to help "Rock Man" because he was much stronger then Gollum. (Christ in us is much stronger than our flesh and our enemies when we rest in the promises in His Word and His power.) I left the fight to take refuge in the small shelter that was left from the tornado and regain some strength back. (Psa 91:1-9 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. 2 I will say of Jehovah, He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in whom I trust. 3 For he will deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, And from the deadly pestilence. 4 He will cover thee with his pinions, And under his wings shalt thou take refuge: His truth is a shield and a buckler. 5 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night, Nor for the arrow that flieth by day; 6 For the pestilence that walketh in darkness, Nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. 7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, And ten thousand at thy right hand; But it shall not come nigh thee. 8 Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold, And see the reward of the wicked. 9 For thou, O Jehovah, art my refuge! …) I noticed, at this point, the Ring was on my left ring finger and really noticed why Gollum wanted it so badly. It was really beautiful with all the different colors and the glimmering light that came from it. (The overcomers are the “Bride of Christ”! Rev. 3:21 He that overcometh, I will give to him to sit down with me in my throne, as I also overcame, and sat down with my Father in his throne. And Hos. 2:19-20 And I will betroth thee unto me for ever; yea, I will betroth thee unto me in righteousness, and in justice, and in lovingkindness, and in mercies. 20 I will even betroth thee unto me in faithfulness; and thou shalt know Jehovah.) "Rock man" came into the shelter and He was not even winded from the fight. (Rev. 21:6 Then He said to me, “It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. …) We didn't speak; we both knew that He was there to protect me but, I was to give the killing blow. (Jesus is our protector, power and strength but it is our responsibility to kill our old flesh nature once and for all. 2Co 7:1 Having therefore these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all defilement of flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.) Gollum saw my ring from the outside of the shelter and was totally infatuated by it. Oddly enough he didn't come into the shelter because he wasn't allowed. He was more interested in looking at the ring on my finger than fighting at this point. He became docile and I knew I was able to somewhat control him at this point. The dream ended with "Mr. Rock" and I on one side of a barricade and Gollum on the other. (The sacrifice of Jesus separates us from our sinful nature and helps us to conquer it.) Keep Your Eye on the Goal Gabe Watson - 11/18/22 (David's notes in red) I dreamed there were these guys playing a basketball game. (This represents the “game” of life.) It seemed like they were playing three on three. (Representing the saints of God who are playing on the "Father, Son, and Holy Spirit team.") It was game point and I came in to play. (Representing the final point in the game that determines the winner.) My teammate had the basketball at the top of the three-point line and was trying to throw it to me on the perimeter, but my defender (representing our opponent or our adversary the devil) was facing me and I could not get the ball. (Satan is the accuser of the brethren. He is always facing off with us trying to cause us to lose the game any way he can.) Then I went deep into the paint, which is close to the basket, and posted up my man, sealing him with my back and arms. My defender was behind me and I felt like a professional basketball player (like Shaquille O'Neal) posting this guy up. My teammate threw me the ball as I posted my defender up. (We must block satan from interfering with us and our teammates scoring to win the game.) I then went to score the basketball with so much strength and power. (When we effectively defend ourselves and our brethren against the attacks of the enemy opponent, we have strength and power from God to win.) As I went up to score the basketball, I felt no agitation from my defender, it was almost as if he was not there. (Jas 4:7 Be subject therefore unto God; but resist the devil, and he will flee from you.) I went up into the air (representing abiding in heavenly places in Christ.) and went above the rim and scored the game-winning point unimpeded by my defender and we won the game. End. (Satan is no match for us when we team up with the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit and we agree with his Word and believe on His promises. We will always score the winning point.) Man-child Steals His Bride from the "god of This World” Gabe Watson - 11/18/22 (David's notes in red) I dreamed that my wife was getting married to another guy, but in the dream she wasn't my wife (yet). (Gabe's wife represents the corporate Bride body who starts out being betrothed to satan, the god of this world, through the bondage of the sin nature and generational curses. But God foreordained them to be the first fruits unto the Man-child reformer ministries.) There seemed to be a lot of confusion and a lot of people were moving around and trying to get ready for their wedding. (There are a lot of apostate “Christians" who are going to marry the antichrist god of this world. He is a false Jesus. 2Co. 4:4 ...the god of this world hath blinded the minds of the unbelieving, that the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should not dawn upon them. And 1Co. 14:33 ...God is not a God of confusion, but of peace. As in all the churches of the saints.) So I started walking with her on a path, completely unaffected by what was going on around me. She was not interested in marrying me at all and was focused on her other wedding, however, I knew that she liked me but it just seemed like she wasn't focused on her feelings for me. (The Man-child, Jesus, will gently and patiently lead His Bride down the narrow Way. He works with us in our lives until our focus is turned to Him and away from the god of this world.) As we were walking on the path she did not want to walk anymore. This confused me a lot because I knew that she could keep walking on the path, but she just didn't want to. (Many times, along our journey with the Lord, we want to quit and give up; thinking it is too hard to keep going because of pain or discouragement or condemnation. But the Lord knows the end from the beginning and He knows we will make it. We must not lose faith. Php. 3:12-14 Not that I have already obtained, or am already made perfect: but I press on, if so be that I may lay hold on that for which also I was laid hold on by Christ Jesus. 13 Brethren, I could not myself yet to have laid hold: but one thing I do , forgetting the things which are behind, and stretching forward to the things which are before, 14 I press on toward the goal unto the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.) So I picked her up into my arms and cradled her like a baby and carried her down the path. (When we feel we can't go any further, we don't have to rely on our own strength. The Lord will carry us. 2Co. 12:9 And he hath said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my power is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my weaknesses, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.) I knew that I loved her, but I could not get her attention to realize it because she was focused on the other marriage. It did not bother me at all, that she wasn't loving me or focused on me, I was just focused on my goal and nothing could hinder my progress with her and my laser focus. (Rom. 8:35-39 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or anguish, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?…37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. 38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, 39 nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.) Then, we were at our wedding, about to get married. It seemed like she still didn't understand what was happening. (Because it is a mystery according to Eph. 5:25-32 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself up for it; 26 that he might sanctify it, having cleansed it by the washing of water with the word, 27 that he might present the church to himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. 28 Even so ought husbands also to love their own wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his own wife loveth himself: 29 for no man ever hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as Christ also the church; 30 because we are members of his body. 31 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife; and the two shall become one flesh. 32 This mystery is great: but I speak in regard of Christ and of the church.) There was a pastor there marrying us and I seemed to be the only one that knew what was going on. (The Man-child, Jesus, always knows what's going on because He knows those who belong to Him. Joh. 10:27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.) There was one exception though. There was one other guy who knew what was going on and he did not like this at all. I knew that he was my enemy and did not want us to get married. (Satan does all that he can to try to sabotage or hinder the Man-child and Bride.) There was just nothing he could do to stop the wedding and he knew it. As I watched him he was so shocked and bewildered that I was marrying her. ...He knew that it was totally out of his hands to stop this wedding and that we were getting married right before his eyes. (The devil knows there is nothing he can do and that his time is short. Rev. 12:12 Therefore rejoice, O heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe for the earth and for the sea: because the devil is gone down unto you, having great wrath, knowing that he hath but a short time.) I didn't know where her proposed husband was, it even could have been this guy, but it did not matter. No one else mattered, my desire was only for her. I was focused on my wedding and nothing could hinder that or impede me from my goal. (Song 7:10 I am my beloved's; And his desire is toward me.) The scene changed and we were listening to her pastor who was giving a very short message. I thought to myself he's preaching pretty good. He finished up with a statement to this effect, that people are focusing on the wrong things in themselves and that we need to be focused on the glory of God in us. (We manifest the nature of Christ 30,60 and 100 fold by our faith in the promises of His Word.) As he said this, I felt strength and renewal, as I focused on the glory of God in me and it gave me peace. As I focused on these words inside myself, I had a deeper revelation of what he said. (Isa.26:3 Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee; because he trusteth in thee.) Then I woke up.

Aluminum. It's everywhere!And we're going to need a hell of a lot more of it in the future.Aluminum is a primary ingredient in solar, wind, hydro, concentrated solar, bioenergy, the grid, batteries, hydrogen, and more. And that's just electricity generation and distribution, to say nothing of consumer goods, from EVs to baseball bats. Great news: we already collect and recycle a hell of a lot of it. Compared to, say, plastic, this is a huge win!But…the bit we haven't been able to recycle is 1) at scale, a lot, and 2) FAIRLY hazardous.Luckily, some very smart young folks may have figured out how to recycle more of it, and maybe even power their whole operation from the inside out.We have to rebuild our entire economy to get to zero new emissions, and then go even further. Some sectors are far easier than others, and deep tech, heavy industry, is the latter.It's not sexy, but heavy industry is – often literally – the foundation for everything we do. Think metals and minerals and concrete and steel and more.My guests today are Rostam Reifschneider & Julian Davis.Rostam and Julian are childhood friends, and the founders of Hydrova, a new company that focuses on developing technology to repurpose waste byproducts of aluminum recycling that are typically landfilled into valuable commodities. Rostam is another 776 Fellow that I've had the pleasure of meeting and sharing with you.What they're trying to do is so important. If you've ever watched a video about aluminum production or recycling on YouTube, well, it's like looking at a collection of rings being forged in the fires of Mordor.Finding a way of making that process more efficient, more circular, less dangerous for people and the climate, and just in time for us to need much more of the product?Well, that's a story I've just got to share.-----------Have feedback or questions?

In this episode, we discuss the strategy behind Mordor's location, debate geography some more, and discuss whether Frodo is a glass half full or empty kind of guy. This episode covers Chapter 2 of Book 6 of The Lord of the Rings - The Return of the King.
What was promised over a year ago has finally come to pass! Our epic marathon of The Lord of the Rings! So join us for second breakfast as we step further away from home than we ever have, all while discussing the film that started it all ‘The Fellowship of the Rings'. The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring is a 2001 epic fantasy adventure film directed by Peter Jackson from a screenplay by Fran Walsh, Philippa Boyens, and Jackson, based on 1954's The Fellowship of the Ring, the first volume of the novel The Lord of the Rings by J. R. R. Tolkien. The film is the first installment in The Lord of the Rings trilogy. It features an ensemble cast including Elijah Wood, Ian McKellen, Liv Tyler, Viggo Mortensen, Sean Astin, Cate Blanchett, John Rhys-Davies, Billy Boyd, Dominic Monaghan, Orlando Bloom, Christopher Lee, Hugo Weaving, Sean Bean, Ian Holm, and Andy Serkis. Set in Middle-earth, the story tells of the Dark Lord Sauron, who seeks the One Ring, which contains part of his might, to return to power. The Ring has found its way to the young hobbit Frodo Baggins. The fate of Middle-earth hangs in the balance as Frodo and eight companions (who form the Fellowship of the Ring) begin their journey to Mount Doom in the land of Mordor, the only place where the Ring can be destroyed.

Here we are, at the end, of one of the best trilogies that has ever been created. YES, we're biased with that comment, but financially, and ratings wise that comment definitely seems to hold much truth for the majority of people. We're here at the conclusion of the Lord of the Rings Trilogy, talking about the Return of the King! "The culmination of nearly 10 years' work and conclusion to Peter Jackson's epic trilogy based on the timeless J.R.R. Tolkien classic, "The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King" presents the final confrontation between the forces of good and evil fighting for control of the future of Middle-earth. Hobbits Frodo and Sam reach Mordor in their quest to destroy the `one ring', while Aragorn leads the forces of good against Sauron's evil army at the stone city of Minas Tirith." What happens to our rag tag group of people whom are at the ends of their ropes, but know that they still have much to accomplish? Aragorn is finally making a turn to be the person, and the king, who he was meant to be his whole life. Sam & Frodo are still trucking along on this perilous journey to destroy the ring, and have to deal with a traitor, and many other dangerous things out in the world. Yes, this movie ends about four times, but, it's totally worth it!!

We decided to give these movies the treatment they deserve and split them into a three parter. Starting, obviously, with ‘Fellowship of the Ring'. Come along with us to Mordor…well, not all the way there yet!
We have reached the end of our adventure and discuss the finale of The Lord of The Rings The Rings of Power Episode 8 Alloyed in our spoiler filled podcast. The Rings Of Power Episode 8 Alloyed Synopsis Episode Written by Gennifer Hutchison with John D. Payne and Patrick McKay Episode Directed by Wayne Chi Yip Series showrunners John D. Payne and Patrick McKay Based on "The Lord of the Rings" and appendices by J.R.R. Tolkien In the East, the white witches known as the Servants of Sauron catch up with The Stranger proclaiming him Lord Sauron, and pledging their service to him so that he may lift the veil of his enemies so he may know himself once again and rule over the lands of Middle-Earth. Nori and the Harfoots also manage to catch up with The Stranger, who has been bound by the Servants of Sauron to keep him from using his powers, which he still has little control over. They manage to free him and help him realise who he really is - he is not Sauron but one of the Istari or wizards. They manage to fend off the Servants of Sauron stealing The Dweller's staff, which the Stranger then uses to banish the trio back to the shadow. Meanwhile, Galadriel and an injured Halbrand arrive in Eregion, much to the surprise of Elrond. The elvish medicine soon has Halbrand on his feet and he seeks out Celebrimbor, the great forger, and in their discussions Halbrand suggests a way of forging the mithril with other metals to enhance its strength. But as Celebrimbor explains what he must do to save the Elves from their diminishing light his choice of words makes Galadriel suspicious of Halbrand's keen interest in the work at the great forge. She checks into the royal lineages of the Southlands. As work progresses in the forge, Galadriel confronts Halbrand with her discovery that he is not from the lineage of the Southland kings, which was broken many years ago. Halbrand reveals himself to be Sauron, and infiltrates her mind to persuade her to become his queen and rule Middle-Earth with him as king, but she refuses. Sauron overpowers Galadriel and flees from Eregion. Keeping what she knows from Elrond and Celebrimbor, she instructs Celebrimbor to forge Three Rings instead of two, so that it brings balance to the holders. Elendil and Míriel arrive back to Númenór to find king Tar-Palantir has died. While back amongst the Harfoots, the Stranger and Nori decide to depart the group and travel east, into Rhûn, to find the “Hermit's Hat” constellation. Unsure which way to go, the Stranger chooses a direction based upon the sweet smell in the air, advising that when in doubt, to "always follow your nose". As their adventure into the East begins, so the journey of Sauron from Eregion finishes as he reaches the Land of Mordor.

Mason and Alec discuss the first season finale for Prime Video's The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power. Some mystery boxes were opened, but we are left with more questions than answers as we begin the two year wait for another season.

Fire reigns from the sky, and a new land of shadow has been created! That's right, friends - MORDOR is here. How do we find new layers of hope, resolve, & restored purpose amidst our most crushing failures? That is the core of this key, character-building installment of THE RINGS OF POWER. An unexpected alliance forms between Galadriel and the young soldier-in-the-making, Theo. There we confront questions of good deeds vs. dark hearts, all of which intimately connect to the battle between father & son that we see taking place with Durin III & Durin IV. Meanwhile, tragedy strikes families of men AND Harfoots, as the characters of Elendil, Isildur, Miriel, Nori, & The Stranger all face their fears and reckon with change across our storylines. It's all here on the 151st episode of Casterly Talk and the sixth episode of our Rings of Power Reviews with Alden Diaz, Rachel Cushing Levine, and Nicky Kumar.

SCOTUS is back in session which means a lefty freakout about the legitimacy of the court and we should be sending money to Ukraine unless you want US service members getting into a land war. https://www.bollandbranch.com/?utm_source=podcast&utm_medium=radio&utm_campaign=ERICK
