The appendix to RotK doesn't tell you nearly enough. The best place for finding elvish is not in any books, but right here on the web. specifically, http://www.elvish.org (Gwaith-i-Phethdain is good) and especially Ardalambion (http://www.uib.no/People/hnohf/). It's awesome.

But for a new album idea... I am so horribly uncreative at these types of things... :-p You've done Latin, though, so I'd just go for some awesome German word. Lania knows a looottttt more german than i do, but so far (aside from doch) my favorite german word is Entschuldigung. Isn't that fun? It means "excuse me' but that's not the point. There was also another really fun one but i don't remember it at the moment. Not that it matters, since I know you're smart enough to not listen to these kind of suggestions. but... ;)

If we had any idea of what some of the songs were about, it might help.

Welcome to the state of Ameteurhood, Theremin. Something tells me Sam will not be among our number for much longer, but as it stands now we're the three muskateers. I'm Aramas! Wait... was he the priest guy or the lord guy? I want to be the priest guy. Yes. Anyway.

As for elvish, I speak it naturally, being an Elven King and all. Quenya and Sindarin, actually, though Quenya was my first language. Cuio annan Heled Dring is still a good phrase though, even though it's in Sindarin.

Almien!

And Morgoth came.

However, I think we still need to keep working on it! I thought about something really silly like: "TronoSaurus Rex", and use a picture of aT-Rex smashing a Mellotron as the cover. :cackle:
Any takers?
Steve


With the subtitle "Breaking the Moog"? OK, maybe the phrase "Breaking the Mood" is not common enough for people to see the pun.

How about a play on Bach? "The well tempered mellotron"?

From what I've heard, the mellotron is not very well tempered at all! It breaks easily and is always getting out of tune :D !
I gotta admit that I'm a little bit confused
Sometimes it seems to me as if I'm just being used
Gotta stay awake, gotta try and shake off this creeping malaise
If I don't stand my own ground, how can I find my way out of this maze?

Ah, the good old days of analog synths. Keith Emerson used to throw his around the room until it made a sound he was happy with. Hence the three ELP jokes:

How can you tell when Carl Palmer is at the door?
The knocking speeds up.

How can you tell when Greg Lake is at the door?
He can't find the key and doesn't know when to come in.

How can you tell when Keith Emerson is at the door?
He throws the front doorbell around the front yard until he's satisfied with the sound.


Lest anyone get the wrong impression I am actually a big ELP fan. Carl Palmer has many fine attributes as a drummer, but keeping a constant tempo is not one of them. Greg Lake has his good points too, but I'm not so keen on his voice.

Alatar, you made my day :D I love ELP but the last couple times I've seen them Carl's meter was no better then ever and his solo more obnoxious than ever, Greg would actually check his watch during the show- but Keith has always been absolutely worth every penny. Even if he looked like he was going to die of a heart attack after the "Rondo" routine the last time out!!

Oh! I thought of a good one today, based off of my experiences on a certain essay writing experience... "the Schizophrenic Philosopher!" I would love to see a prog song on that, if not a whole album... Wouldn't it be fun? :-D

Wouldn't that be a better name for you, Sam? :eyebrow:

Hey! 100 posts, Theremin! Cool!

Um... I don't know who entered it into the iTunes CDDB, but apparently, it's called "Behind the Great Beyond". Uh... sure. So Steve, you might want to look into that or something. I don't know if the info is burned into the CD or what, but maybe you could submit a change.

Of course, you poor soul, you don't have iTunes, so...
