Defugia, the bright light on the black shores

This is what I listen to as I write about Defugia.  Not its bustling market or busy piers.  Not its thick walls of living stone or the tightly packed residences within the walls.  Defugia is, first and foremost, an ideal.  And an ideal will breathe its own particular brand of life into a place. 

By the way, if you haven't watched the new Star Trek movies then you should remedy that situation immediately.  10/10 for me, even when I rewatch them on dvd they still raise my pulse. 

The Hobbit: Battle of Five Armies

Random thoughts after watching the movie:

Lots of good.  Lots of material that is straight from the mind of Peter Jackson and not from the pages of the Hobbit.

Martin Freeman is so good as Bilbo, he makes the movie for me. 

Dain:  this guy looks like he's straight from the intro movie to Warhammer Online:  Age of Reckoning.
