About Me


 About Me

 

 

Good Morning, Afternoon, Evening or Night, ye by passer. Welcome to HerenIstarion, the really tiny corner of the web belonging to myself, that is, George Lashkhi, a.k.a (guess what? yes, the selfsame) HerenIstarion. What is the purpose of the web site? Well, not a great goal here – a must do nowadays, to have a web site, so I do have one. And, having one, why not make a bit of PR promotion to oneself? And if you feel it’s “very fine morning for a pipe of tobacco out of doors, into the bargain” than “sit down and have a fill of mine! There's no hurry, we have all the day before us!”

 

And if you need something translated (Georgian-Russian-English, any direction), contact me and so we can talk over the details.

 

If you are after Tolkien, see articles or maybe poems too. And links, of course.

 

And I also enjoy racing. Not that I race myself – nay, I drive in most civil manner possible down where I live, stopping on red lights (within the lines too) and having my belt fastened, always. But I enjoy watching, commenting upon and gaming. For the latter, see BAT Racing J

Poems


Poems

 

 

I’ve started writing those as far back as 1996. It begun (that’s the right guess) with Tolkien. I tried my teeth on translating his poems into Georgian, and found that I’m bad at it. Down below there is a selection of what I find my best. Even if you find it pathetic, I try harder ;). Besides, second link will bring to your attention another feat of mine - ReVerse - i.e. Tolkien poems turned "inside out". You're just a click away from finding what's it all about:

I do (or rather, I did, some years back) draw sometimes. Well, the most recent venture (on purpose, apart from scribbling on the odd papers while talking over the phone) into the world of arts occurred quite a while ago, but nevertheless. Still more, usual inspiration source here as well as in poems (and articles at that) - J.R.R.Tolkien The most bulk of those are made as illustrations to J.R.R.Tolkien’s works. There are much more than listed here, but the rest is not scanned. So, hope you enjoy what is left here

Are you really interested in seeing those? For a little while now I have a digital camera at my disposal, and that's a relief. Promise to add up some older film-pictures when I find sufficient time to scan them. Two albums so far:

Wedding and Honeymoon Album

Firstborn Child Album

This sub page contains the links and short description of places I find most attractive on the web. So, enjoy them with me, there is a good lad/lass:

APF  - Annotated Pratchett File. Ever enjoyed Terry’s books? Find things which were a bit unclear explained to you in an easy and yet erudite way

The Barrow Downs  - The best there is about Tolkien. Profound discussion on the Forum, it’s own IRC channel for those preferring to chat, fan-fiction, RPG, contests etc.

Tolkien.ru  - Never read anything by the Professor? Fill up the gap. Note: site is in Russian, but there is an English page present as well

batracer.com – I enjoy it immensely. You don’t drive per se, but you have to put your brain to work, calculating setups, accounting for weather and the like. It says fun and addictive on its front page. Indeed, it is fun. And an addict is me

last.fm - Just joined, seems a good thing - social musical network. All you do is just what you always did - listen to your favourite music, whilst the last.fm software collects data about your preferences and provides recommendations as to what may be to your liking based on your previously exhibited taste. All the statistics provided are a curious thing to take a look at too, like you weekly top artist, overall top track and so forth and so on. Here, take a look at my 'overall top artists' (new data added weekly):
