Thanks to everyone for your support in the Imperishable Flame Awards, and congratulations to Glass Hammer! It was an honor to win the award, but it was just as great an honor to have the chance to deliver Glass Hammer's acceptance speech in the band's absence and accept the award on GH's behalf.

Lord of the Rings actors Bruce Hopkins (Gamling) and Craig Parker (Haldir) presented the awards. If anyone is interested, there are pictures of the ceremony here: ... A4&notag=1

(Yes, I'm the short hobbit they put on a chair so I could see over the podium :D )

Thanks again!
"I look East, West, North, South, and I do not see Sauron, but I see that Saruman has many descendants. We Hobbits have against them no magic weapons. Yet, my gentlehobbits, I give you this toast: To the Hobbits. May they outlast the Sarumans and see spring again in the trees."
-J.R.R. Tolkien, from a 1958 speech
