      May he rest in peace. I didn't know you'd known Mike. (who, among
      his filking endevours, did Borimir's Song to music).

      Not in recent memory (er, that would be 10 years or so, on my part).
      It would be a lovely tradition to revive, though; may talk to the
      current membership at some point -- we do continue the tradition of
      the Bilbo and Frodo birthday party (complete with reading the first
      chapter), but AFAIK, there is no marathon reading.
