I have started a Patreon account!
Please support me HERE if you love my comics and would like to see more consistent updates!
Sneak peek and Work-in-Progress process will be offered to all tiers of supporters on Patreon. I currently have $1, $5 and $10 tiers but all tiers have the same benefit right now. It’s just up to you how much or little you want to contribute.
The regular comics will stay free for all and continue to be serialized here, of course, so you don’t have to worry about changes to comics if you don’t want to pay and you can simply follow me on Patreon for updates without spending a dollar.
Thank you very much for your appreciation.
Hmm… a suspicious package at the door today… I wonder who it is from…
*gasp* Does that say Lonely Mountain Band?!
Ooh! It’s the two albums of Lonely Mountain Band that I ordered on Hobbit Day!
Complete with John Di Bartolo’s autograph!
Okay, so it’s just a signed letter, but I still say it passes as an autograph!
Gorgeous art on Beyond the Western Seas
I must say I was quite pleasantly surprised by the professional packaging of this one. Not shown here but it folds out into three sections.
I would’ve liked an insert with lyrics too, but it doesn’t stop me from singing along “Baruk-Khazad!” XD
What is the CD art for Second Breakfast you say? Why, it’s none other than a PIE~!!!
It took all my will trying not to chomp on the CD. I think the mailman took a slice though. *grumble*
This one was a simple slip rather than a case with no additional information other than the song list on the back, but the pie sure made up for it.
Maybe there will be a collector’s edition release later? 😉
I have already downloaded all the MP3s when I purchased them, but it’s extra special to have the actual CDs, and a Pie!
The main difference in Beyond the Western Seas CD that is different from regular MP3 download is #7, which acts as a 3-in-1 track. It starts out with “Misty Mountain Air” which is a pipes solo that would make Beorbrand drool, then “Lament of Khazad-dûm” with a very sad *sniff* vocal accompanied by guitar and pipes, ending with the familiar “Song of Durin’s Awakening (Baruk Khazâd! Khazâd ai-mênu!).”
Huzzah for Lonely Mountain Band! Thank you for your wonderful music.
They now reside right beside the LotR OST on my CD shelf. 😀
