We gotta have faith…
EA, Who knows ALL THINGS,
Knew he could not Defeat
KINGU and the Hosts of TIAMAT
- The Sumerian text “Enuma Elish”
Now KINGU sounds like KING with an “U” sound at the end. The Japanese have a way of attaching a “U” sound at the end of English speaking words to make them sound Japanese, therefore KINGU is the Japanese word for King, like RINGU is the Japanese word for RING. As proof, examine the 1998 Japanese horror movie RINGU which is a translation for the word RING. Therefore, KINGU is the word KING. And we find that Nintendo, a Japanese videogaming company has a lot to do with Kings and Princes and Princesses and Royalty. Nintendo’s dragon character Bowser is called Daimao or, literally The Great Demon King and ancient Sumerian texts had plenty of references to Dragons and Demons and Demon Kings. Indeed one of the ancient texts has the Demon King, which is represented by a Serpent - or Dragon - trying to kidnap the Holy Princess of the magic city who is saved by a pair of WATER BEARERS or WATER POT CARRIERS - what we can today translate as, PLUMBERS.
Furthermore, there is also Donkey Kong, which is clearly based off the American movie KING Kong. Once again there is a reference to royalty, to a King, a Monkey King. Now we see the Monkey King motiff in many ancient cultures. But what is truly amazing is that the Ancient Sumerians knew about this - they predicted it and they wrote about it in their texts.
Now Tiamat is refered to as a Host. Think of it - the Hosts of Tiamat. Tiamat is coded language for the World Wide Web. Websites are Hosted on servers and this makes up the World Wide Web. So EA, who knows all things knew, because He knows ALL THINGS, that he could not defeat KINGU, that is Nintendo and the Hosts of TIAMAT, that is The World Wide Web.
Could it be that the Ancient Sumerians were predicting the Nintendo Global Link, millenia before it came to be? Or did the Ancient Sumerians themselves have access to the Nintendo Global Link? Ancient Videogamer Theorists believe so.
HE WHO UNDERSTANDS ALL:
The Wise One
The Great One,
EA who Knows ALL THAT IS,
Perceived the Plot.
He countered it
With a Powerful Spell.
- The Sumerian text “Enuma Elish”
See! The Ancient Sumerians predicted the greatness of Command & Conquer, The Sims, Star Wars Battlefront, Dungeon Keeper, Need for Speed, NBA Live 14, Battlefield 4 and that illuminating mysterious text, Plants Vs Zombies, in the distant past of Mankind. I’m holding an invisible watermelon and that proves my theory.
EA GAMES KNOWS ALL THAT IS!!
What’s this? A happy moment in Game of Thrones? With smiles?!
Just as long as he doesn’t tell me I can save 15% or more on my Car Insurance…

James Hunt cosplay for the movie RUSH
I wasn’t sure I was going to get to watch the movie during my weekend visit to my wife (she works at Disney Orlando) but when the plans fell into place I knew I’d have to watch it in cosplay (we always do). I found an excellent crash helmet (ironically painted gloss red - I wish I had found two so I could have used this one for Nikki) at Goodwill along with a good pair of red jogging pants. Walmart had a matching red sweater/hoodie for just over ten bucks and I did up the patches as best as I could (the Goodyear patch is real) but the real clincher was that helmet. The ‘decals’ are actually paper printouts that I carefully painted around and over to match the Rustoleum double layer super gloss coat.
Considering I did all of this in one week, I’d say my Rush cosplay was really a rush cosplay!
I’ll keep working on this cosplay - I’m going to handsew the patches myself since the ones Chris wears are hard to find in the sizes I need (or else too expensive) - and hopefully I can find another crash helmet and do a Nikki cosplay as an alternative (or my wife can dress up as Nikki and I’ll dress up as James - we already do Loki and Thor so I think that would be a fair exchange).
I should do - for my looks - Ayrton Senna too probably… and yet another helmet!
Is that Rory, Amy Pond’s husband? And did he eat all the beans?
So I’m going to be making memes for these wannabe Tolkien fans. They usually call themselves “fangirls” although this hasn’t always been the case I associate the term with girls who are fans for like a month and don’t know anything about the mythology.
This is 600 shades of total bullshit and reeks of the stupid fuck fake geek girl shit that literally makes me want to smush your judgmental eyeballs into your skull.
You don’t have to know jack shit about Tolkien’s mythology to be a fan of Tolkien’s stories. You don’t have to memorize the Silmarillion, or be able to list all the Valar, or know what the Children of Hurin is. You don’t even have to have read all the books, or ANY of the books for all it fucking matters.
Congratulations on being better than everyone else in the universe, if it makes you feel good to shit on other people who are just in different stages of loving the EXACT SAME THING AS YOU.
Who cares if someone has been a fan for a day or a month or a year or a lifetime. The length of time does not determine whether someone is allowed to call themselves a fan of something. Nor does their depth of knowledge on it. Someone could have seen ONE EPISODE of a tv show and if they like it enough that they want to see more, then they can call themselves a fan.
What makes someone not a fan is treating other people like shit for being at different points on an imaginary, bullshit scale of technical know-how. Tolkien would think you’re a bully and an ass for shaming someone based on their sex and how much or little they know about his complicated mythology. His mythology, like the Silmarillion and the Lost Tales and his histories, are not the easiest reads for an adult, never mind a 14 year old in high school who is still allowed to love and be a fan of The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings.
Come down to live amongst the rest of us peasants, the thin air on top of your high horse is clearly affecting your ability to be pleasant human being.
I think it’s not so much about bullying or reading all the Silmarillion or memorizing every name and date as about continuing in the fandom or, by comparison, being a pretentious wannabe who just does it to be ‘in’ or ‘cool’. I think that young fans and ‘new blood’ needs to be supported, protected and nurtured and not derided for their lack of ‘knowledge’ or how recent they became fans. That being said, there are those whose love for a fandom is very shallow and doesn’t grow even a bit. They act like they’re really into it or they wear costumes (or half costumes) or drop names to impress others. That’s pretentious. That’s faking it.
And no you don’t have to be into everything and you don’t have to know everything but you have to, as a fan, continue learning and growing and participating positively and constructively in the fandom.
