The Hobbit (1966)

"The Hobbit, presented as J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit, was the first film adaptation of The Hobbit, created by Gene Deitch in 1966. The film was produced by William Snyder and took less than a month to create. The film was approximately 12 minutes long and was only created so Snyder could extend his license for The Lord of the Rings and sell it back to Tolkien and his publishers, which he did for $100,000."

In Tune with Time - Watchmaker Masahiro Kikuno

Wadokei Revision: "The first Western mechanical clock/watch was brought into Japan by a missionary in 1551. But the concept of the 'time' in Japan was different from the western one, so it was never used as a time-measurement device."

What is "Japan's traditional way of time-measurement"? - divide a day by day-time and night-time, and then divide further each by six (6), and each one was called "one (Japanese) hour". It shows Japanese way of life which is very close to the nature and called "temporal hour". As you can guess, the length of an "hour" changes everyday in today's concept of the time.

Sehnsucht

This interview with J.R.R. Tolkien was originally published in The Telegraph magazine on March 22. 1968.

He was born at Bloemfontein in South Africa. “I was three when I was brought to England,” he said. “After the dry, barren places I had known, I had in a way been ‘trained’ to savour the delicate English flowers and the grass. I had this strange sense of coming home when I arrived. The hobbit business began partly as a Sehnsucht for that happy childhood which ended when I was orphaned, at 12.”

The scene of his déjà vu – Sarehole, on the outskirts of Birmingham – became the model for the Shire.
