monthly mad map mashup #2
In popular culture we often underestimate the genre of myth: true things expressed fictionally. The Lord of the Rings does 'myth' very well. I am a LOTR aficionado, which means that when the first movie came out I queued up early, dressed in costume. By the time I'd watched the extended version of the third movie I was pretty jaded. All I wanted was a multi-million dollar faithful re-creation of the books. I didn't want to watch Peter Jackson's "vision" of how he thought it should go. Therefore this monthly mad map mashup is a memorial to that momentous motive but not to that monstrous massive missive made by that megalomaniac movie mogul Peter Jackson!
