Bless us and splash us, precious. That’s a meaty mouthful.
What have I got in my pocket?
Thirty white horses on a red hill,
First they champ,
Then they stamp,
Then they stand still.

Riddles in the Dark. Sketchbook doodle I decided to throw some color on…
So excited for The Hobbit!
Andy Serkis, on filming ‘Riddles in the Dark’ with Martin Freeman [x]
So, when Ants Farrell (in the third video blog) said watching that scene being filmed was “like watching a play,” he wasn’t kidding. It must have been amazing.
To begin our awesome Tolkien Reading Day, we should start with the master himself reading an excerpt of The Hobbit! “Deep down here by the dark water lived old Gollum…” from the 5th chapter: “Riddles in the Dark”
Martin Freeman & Andy Serkis, The Hobbit
Dear Peter Jackson,
Please make the clips of Martin Freeman and Andy Serkis rehearsing this scene the subject of your next “behind the scenes” video release. Or, failing that, I expect to see them prominently featured on the DVD.
Um…you were saying?
Is there anything else you’d like to request while you’re at it? Because, clearly, Peter loves you.
One of Gollum’s riddles for Bilbo.
I’m still thinking uncomfortably about eating.
(Or, maybe, tidying the kitchen before bedtime.)
