The Two Towers Liveblog Session 2

9:07PM: LIVEBLOGGING HAS ENDED. Thanks for tuning in for this miserably boring chapter that rehashed the conclusions we were pretty much able to draw from the previous chapter.

8:04PM: LIVEBLOG SESSION HAPPENING NOW. All blogging/commentary will be made as comments in response to this post.

After an overhyped football game and a Hallmark holiday about love interfering with my reading schedule, I’ll be back at you tonight at 8pm with more of The Two Towers liveblog experience. Needless to say, this liveblog is going to be a hell of a lot funnier if you participate, so join me right here at 8pm for a dose of high fantasy and total nonsense.

First time hearing about this? You must be filtering my inane postings out of your Facebook feed! But you can still get the scoop on why I’m doing this and what it’s about right here.

    Sorry for the slight delay–getting reminders posted and pouring myself a helpful glass of bourbon.

  3. Chelsea says:

    Pippin and Merry are both all tied up, currently Orc prisoners. Merry’s described as “white-faced, with a dirty rag bound across his brows” (41). All I can imagine is Merry with a headband? #wtf

  4. Chelsea says:

    Pippin: “‘What good have I been? Just a nuisance: a passenger, a piece of luggage.'”

    For real, yo

  5. Chelsea says:

    In reading about the in-fighting between the Orcs, I don’t think I really realized the level of division between them when I saw the movies.

  6. Chelsea says:

    Merry, just after he’s come around: “‘Hullo, Pippin!’ he said. ‘So you’ve come on this little expedition, too? Where do we get bed and breakfast?'”

    Hobbits open their mouths to say ridiculous shit at the worst possible times

  7. Chelsea says:

    “They ran, and they ran, striving to keep up the pace set by the Orcs, licked every now and again with a cruel thong cunningly handled.”

    Obvious diction lolz

  8. Chelsea says:

    One of the Orcs calls another an ape as an insult, which doesn’t seem to fit at all with the Tolkien universe, as there don’t seem to be any apes anywhere in Middle-Earth. Someone correct me if I’m wrong here.

  9. Chelsea says:

    They run and then they run some more and then there’s some more running and then running happened

  10. Chelsea says:

    This chapter is really not lending itself to any significant humor.

  11. Chelsea says:

    “Dimly they were aware of Grishnákh’s great head and hideous face between them; his foul breath was on their cheeks. He began to paw them and feel them.” (54)
