Helsinki's Hits

Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors

Wednesday, February 25, 2009


i love lord of the rings. heaps. its quite unhealthy actually. litrally. i used to watch all the extended versions in a weekend. thats like 12 hours of lotr in one hit.

so heres me justifying my love of lotr:

1. the story proves that even the smallest person can have the biggest affect
2. that anyone can fight, as long as they believe in what their fighting for
3. that women are just as capable on a battle field as men
4. that even in the darkest of hours, there IS still hope
5. that death is not the end, but merely the start of a new adventure
6. that u cannot fight who u were meant to be
7. tha courage lies within every being, it just needs to be found
8. that greed will be the end of you
9. that loyalty can be stronger then self preservation
10.that you dont appreciate what you have until you lose it

all in all the lessons learned by watching lotr are well worth the 12 hours of footage. if ur a mad fan like me you will be able to indentify how each point mentioned connects to lotr.

for frodo,


p.s. torii i want you to reply to this with your favourite quotes and we shall start a QUOTE WAR!!!

How i remember the days of the English class when all we used to do was write down quotes from lord of the rings... How i miss the days!!!
...You always seemed to pwn over me though, and fair enough. You HAVE to be dedicated if you watched 12 hours of Lord of the Rings...
You know what? That 'For Frodo' line actually pissed me off when i was watching the film! Everyone seems to forget about Sam! I think Sam went through exactly the same shit (arguably, even MORE shit) than Frodo!! So why not 'for Frodo AND Sam???' WHY NOT!!! ANSWER ME THAT!!!!
But in response to this quote war, i state the following:
(my favourite quote)
"common Mr Frodo... i can't carry it for you... BUT I CAN CARRY YOU!!!!"
*vic gets teary with joy*

Helsinki said...

'you fool of a toook!'
'a wizard is never late. neither is he he early. he arrives precisly when he means to!'




The Enigma said...

bahaha! gotta love pippin...
My second favourite quote:
i see in your eyes, the same fear that would take the heart of me!! A day may come when the courage of men fails and when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship, but it is not this day... An hour of woes and shattered sheilds, when the age of men, comes crashing down... BUT IT IS NOT THIS DAY! THIS DAY- WE FIGHT!!!!!

Helsinki said...

oh i just love when king theodens like

'riiiideeeeeeeeeee!' even though its like one work its just so wicked!!


The Enigma said...

haha! Well, speaking of king Theoden, another great quote from a family relative:
"I AM NO MAN!!!!!!!!"

Yeauh! GIRL POWER!!!!!!!

Helsinki said...


'i know that face... eyes darken...'
'im going to save you...'
'you already have. Eoywn. My body is broken. You have to let me go. I go to my fathers, in whose mighty company i now not feel ashamed. Eowyn....'

'courage Merry, courage for our friends...'

[to Merry] 'whatever happens- stay with me. ill look after you'

'women of this country learned long ago that those without swords can still die upon them. i fear neither death nor pain.'
'what do you fear , my lady?'
'a cage. to stay behind bars until use and old age accept them and all chance of valor has gone beyond recall or desire'

ok ive had enough of eowyn. next time ill picj another character to go all quote-sy on.


The Enigma said...

hmm perhaps we should move on to another female then???
"What's this? A ranger, caught of his guard?"
:D :D :D :D

Helsinki said...


'there is still hope'

'i know this- if i leave him now, i will regret it forever,'

[when arguing with Elrond]
'i looked into your future and saw death'
'but there is also life. you saw there was a child. you saw my son'
'that future is gone'
'but it is not lost.'
'nothing is certain.'
'some things are certain. if i leave him now, i will regret it forever.'

'your hands are cold. the life of the eldar is leaving you.'
'this was my choice...ada, by your will or not there is no ship that can bear me hence...'

i LOVE her

The Enigma said...

you love HER or you love LIv Tyler???
Ehh, Arwen's okay... not as cool as Eowyn i reckon... but anywhooozle...

By far the best quote ever coming up:

Helsinki said...

i love both Arwen AND Liv Tyler. theyre awesome.

but i dont really like Eowyn. she has cool quotes but i find her too selfish a character. even though she risked her life to fight and all that she abandoned her entire country to furfil her own slefish desires. she was left in charge or Rohan and she just up and left so she could fight. its courageous but very selfsih in nature.

LOVE you

'legolas- what do ur elf eyes see?'


The Enigma said...

Hmmm i get your point... But if i put myself in that situation and everyone i knew and loved was going to war, it's be so bloody hard to stay behind and i don't know if i could do it... and also, if she stayed behind, that creepy guy (whose name escapes me) would have probably never been killed...
But i get what your saying :)

I heartttt aragorn!!!!!
"If by my life or death, i can protect you, i will. You have my sword..."

"...and my bow"

"AND MY AXE!!!!!!!"

Love-ith you :)

Helsinki said...

Aragon is simply the best. easy peasy. he is so awesomely cool. no wonder he was made king.

[when speaking to elrond]
'put aside the ranger. becme who u were born to be... i give hope to men'
'i keep none for myself...'

'i cant avoid being seen. but to become invisible- now that is a rare gift!'

'lets hunt some orc!'

i LOVE him. so muuuch.


The Enigma said...

best aragorn quote ever:

"My friends.... *smiles* You bow to no one..."
*vic bursts into tears of happiness*
