Jibber Jabber: J.R.R. Tolkein Recites A Poem In Elvish

This is an audio recording of J.R.R. Tolkien reciting his poem Namárië in the Elvish language he created. I dunno, I thought he kind of sounds like a leprechaun. Which, for the record, do exist, but don't hide pots of gold. They do steal children in the middle of the night though -- that part's true.

Hit the jump for the video, then let's all run around in the woods throwing pine cones and hitting each other with sticks.

Thanks to McMan, who claims he created his own language but it sounds suspiciously like he's just burping.
