The GdT Express is in the station...

...time to go for a ride! :)

Hola Guillermo!

It was still snowing where I live just a week ago. But with the news today, I know that the sun is out and Spring has finally arrived -- it's a wonderful day to just step out of the front door and see where the road leads to. :)

To be honest, 6 to 9 months ago I wasn't quite in your camp yet. I still had hopes for my own personal dark-horse candidate, Terry Gilliam. But I did my homework. I watched your movies. Saw some interviews and read the statements you've made about your views on story and myth wherever I could find them. And read, with delight, the hard work you've already done recently immersing yourself in Tolkien studies; this despite the hectic schedule you must already have set for yourself. (Actually, watching folks like yourself, PJ, Spielberg, Lucas, Gilliam, Ridley Scott and others, I've come to the conclusion that directors are either not human or are completely insane!) Well, I stand converted. Not only am I in your camp, but I think my shoes are on fire! ;)

Some credit for that goes to many of the regulars here at TORN who have been backing you since before I ever even knew there was a race. Thanks to them for helping me see the light. And thanks PJ, and Prof. Tolkien, for..., well..., the Moon, the Stars, and everything else that makes Middle-earth real in our hearts and minds!

Welcome, Guillermo! Pax.

As Flaunder said in Animal House, "This is gonna be great!!..."
