The thing is, we older TORnsibs have been through all this already with the LOTR films and their respective EEs, so on the one hand it's easy to empathize with (and on the other to get impatient with) the people who are upset, the people who are upset with the people who are upset, the people who are upset with the people who are not upset, and all the other permutations of perturbation.

As Barenaked Ladies put it, "It's all been done before".

I come from a time when it was rare to meet someone who'd even read Tolkien, so when you finally did you were just about automatically friends. I really wish I could think of words to help my fellow fans in Tolkien and/or Jackson calm down, but sometimes the best thing to do is just let people vent.


The audacious proposal stirred his heart. And the stirring became a song, and it mingled with the songs of Gil-galad and Celebrian, and with those of Feanor and Fingon. The song-weaving created a larger song, and then another, until suddenly it was as if a long forgotten memory woke and for one breathtaking moment the Music of the Ainur revealed itself in all glory. He opened his lips to sing and share this song. Then he realized that the others would not understand. Not even Mithrandir given his current state of mind. So he smiled and simply said "A diversion.”
