Holy Moly! Finally! [In reply to] Can't Post

"I think I'm quite ready for another adventure."

Loved Pan's Labyrinth, first Hellboy not so much. I hope I love the Hobbit movie as much as LOTR! Can't wait to hear some casting news so I can get a mental picture in my head of what I expect the movie to look like.

When the seas and mountains fall and we come to end of days, in the dark I hear your call calling me there, i will go there and back again.

"I'm so [In reply to] Can't Post

excited, and just can't hide it, I'm about to lose control but I think I like it!" Very happy to see this and very happy with del Toro being on board. Wonder if this means the lawsuit is weeks away from going away?

"Far over the misty mountains cold [In reply to] Can't Post

To dungeons deep and caverns old
We must away ere break of day
To seek the pale enchanted gold.
The dwarves of yore made mighty spells,
While hammers fell like ringing bells
In places deep, where dark things sleep,
In hollow halls beneath the fells.
For ancient king and elvish lord
There many a gloaming golden hoard
They shaped and wrought, and light they caught
To hide in gems on hilt of sword.
On silver necklaces they strung
The flowering stars, on crowns they hung
The dragon‑fire, in twisted wire
They meshed the light of moon and sun.
Far over the misty mountains cold
To dungeons deep and caverns old
We must away, ere break of day,
To claim our long‑forgotten gold.
Goblets they carved there for themselves
And harps of gold; where no man delves
There lay they long, and many a song
Was sung unheard by men or elves.
The pines were roaring on the height,
The winds were moaning in the night.
The fire was red, it flaming spread;
The trees like torches biased with light,
The bells were ringing in the dale
And men looked up with faces pale;
The dragon’s ire more fierce than fire
Laid low their towers and houses frail.
The mountain smoked beneath the moon;
The dwarves, they heard the tramp of doom.
They fled their hall to dying ‑fall
Beneath his feet, beneath the moon.
Far over the misty mountains grim
To dungeons deep and caverns dim
We must away, ere break of day,
To win our harps and gold from him!”

Woo hoo!

Each cloak was fastened about the neck with a brooch like a green leaf veined with silver.
`Are these magic cloaks?' asked Pippin, looking at them with wonder.
`I do not know what you mean by that,' answered the leader of the Elves.

Jumps in for a moment..... [In reply to] Can't Post

Dangit, The ANNOUNCEMENT had to happen while I was at dinner.

When I read this 15 mins ago, I leaped out of the chair and jumped up and down for 2 minutes. "YES!! YES!!!! YES!!!!!!" I ran out the bedroom, down the stairs and out the back door into the backyard (lucky it's night!) still jumping up and down in circles and screaming "YES!! YES!! YES!!!" for 5 more minutes. One of the people I am living with ran out the door and asked "What happened? What is it?" But all I could do was yell out "AFTER THREE STUPID YEARS OF LAWSUITS AND CRAP, YES!!!!!" He had to go back in the house in bewilderment...."You don't understand, sorry," I said, and he left. (Sorry, D.!)

Who cares if the neighbors hear.

(Um, I'm a little bit excited? Sorry!Blush)

I'm going to sneak out the back door into the yard do some more jumping up and down after midnight. I can't hold it all in.

I am in tears right now. I despaired more than most. I am STILL skeptical of the honchos at NL and Warner's....that they will try to pull a financial fast one on our new friend GDT. I guess the candle I burned last night WORKED.

I can't post right now any more...I will sit back and read all your wonderful responses. This whole project means a lot to me. IN many ways. Sometime later tonight I will try to explain how I feel. (Warning: may get a little DEEP.)

But this is like Miruvor.....or should I say, like lembas in Mordor.

I will sit back and bask in all this, before I write what I am feeling.

I kind of know what you mean- I'm currently in a house filled with people who are blind to the wonder and beauty that is Tolkien and his writings (and that includes movie stuff), and so I'm just sitting here bursting with excitement....and....sitting here....being happy....Tongue

Our back yard [In reply to] Can't Post

Sunflower, I was touched by your post. Your mention of running out into the backyard reminded me of a book by Dorothea Lynch where she said:
No one is special, are they, when all is said and done? And of course each of us is very special, very singular, carrying weight. I matter. I would like to open the window tonight and yell that outside. I matter. Or go down and lie next to the plants and whisper it.

I think I will whisper it to the plants tonight .... In fact I think I will say ..we all matter!!

You never gave up ! You deserve that champagne ! [In reply to] Can't Post

Your unfailing, unwavering faith that Peter would eventually bring this to life, whether he be at the directors helm or not never faltered.

Congrats gramma dear !! You have another wonderful ride ahead with all of us in tow ! I'm giddy just thinking that Fran and Philipia are involved as well as WETA.

What a night ! Phew !

There's something of everything here, The Shire and the Golden Wood and Gondor and kings' houses and inns and meadows and mountains all mixed.

....and there are Elves when you want them.

Plot of the second film [In reply to] Can't Post

Personally, I'm hoping that the plot of the second Hobbit film revolves around the White Council driving the necromancer (aka Sauron) from southern Mirkwood. I think it would tie the stories together nicely, and since that whole even was fairly vague, they could introduce some very cool characters that they didn't get to use in the other movies like Elladan and Elrohir, Radagast the Brown, and maybe even get a glimpse of Tom Bombadil.

*Wipes eyes* [In reply to] Can't Post

Sorry, I've got the Kleenex out. And the iced tea. And the Pecan Truffle Nonni's Biscotti. I am going to be camped in front of the computer till about.....midnight. I am still on Cloud 9 and will be there for days....

Nienna, yr post touched me too. Go ahead and do it. Lie down in the garden and whisper to the plants, ""I'm special!" (there's a John Lennon lyric that comes to mind...but it's corny in this day and age)

I am not an official "tree-hugger" but I love trees and whenever I walk through woods, I stop, put my hand on a tree trunk, and have a "chat"with the forest. I call them "my brothers and sisters." I beleive trees have souls. There's a bit of John Muir in me, I guess. And I swear, after a moment or two, I can "feel" the sap flowing within, like the tree's blood. I feel I am joined to it in a way. ("The Force"?)

Oh, I'll have a chat with the forest tonight! (Tolkien was the trees' champion, after all.)

Go ahead and do it! Times like this are few and far between in life....besides major family events,personal milestones, and milestones with friends.This is one such happy milestone. May I say, I am a 30-something and should be beyond all this...but I don't care!

FYI, the rest of the family has gone out for a while. They can't figure me outSly

PS the pic of PJ and GDT [In reply to] Can't Post

Del Toro looks deleriously happy (as well he should!) but does anyone get the feeling that PJ has a look on his face that says "Ha ha, if you only knew what you were in for"? EvilLaugh
