No news News. Can't Post

With rare exceptions, expect a lot of "no news" news to pop up everywhere "about the Hobbit".

Some may try and be controversial with headings, some may try to spin old news into looking a little more recent. Some may even create a "scoop" feeling.

But the bottom line is simple: There are no more news to report.

That said, being on the HBII junket tour, many a question will have to do with "The Hobbit" and the answer that will be given will be pallid variations on themes already familiar to TORN readers.

Please be patient. In just a few weeks, progress will actually occur and we will have some tidbits to gear up-

Yours Truly

And good luck with Hellboy II!

Best of luck with HBII [In reply to] Can't Post

I saw a trailer yesterday and I'm looking forward to seeing the movie.

One thing I've learned from following the LOTR movies is that the cycle of interviews tends to get very repetitive. I have a lot of admiration for anyone who can repeat the same answers to the same questions over the course of several weeks and make the answers interesting. I don't think I would have the patience for that.

`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.

Wow... that's staying in touch better than many of my friends do [In reply to] Can't Post

(and me... she admits sheepishly).

I will surely see Hellboy II, although... with finances tight it will be at our lovely, restored, vintage, neighborhood, second run theater (with rocker seats, a great screen and sound system and the best popcorn in the Twin Cities).

Thanks for keeping in touch.

Thanks for the heads up. [In reply to] Can't Post

I am getting very excited about seeing Hellboy two. My husband of thirty years and I are intending to make it a date movie Friday, with all the accouterments. I don't know how young folks manage these days with the price of the gas, movies, drinks, and popcorn.

May your beer be laid under an enchantment of surpassing excellence for seven years!

No news is good news ... [In reply to] Can't Post

It's great to hear from the source that most of the rumors flying around are just hot air.

You do realize that you're now on the hook to deliver some actual news in a few weeks, don't you? Cool

We appreciate even a "no news" notice! And hey, it keeps TORn looking respectable if we don't fall for any alleged "scoops".

Good luck with HBII!

Thank you so much... [In reply to] Can't Post

...for thinking of us when you are so busy! And by the way, I finally got to see "Pan's Labyrinth" last night, and it was fabulous! My husband said, "That's it--now I know that he can do 'The Hobbit'!" So rich in layers, so accurate as to what a fairy-story ought to be!

May you have interesting dreams, and may they throw some fabulous inspiration your way!

In other words, anything you say can and will be used ... [In reply to] Can't Post

.... got it.

In the whirlwind of interviews, travel, repetition and fatigue, it must be pretty easy for your words to over-enthusiastic interviewers to either be misinterpreted or twisted. Knowing how we hang on everything you do say ... it was really considerate of you to give us a heads up. Thank you.

*Raises empty Baby Ruth wrapper in salute* [In reply to] Can't Post

At least if there's No News, we have a very good reason why! No apologies needed, Sir!

We know you have a GREAT movie coming out in a week, I have read the novelization and know it's an amazing and powerful story, and I can't wait to see it! Plus the issues you raise in the film are of intense interest to me and it's great that you choose to address them in such a mainstream "pop culture" fashion.

Thank you for all the interviews, it's a great pleasure reading and listening to them. I have learned so much. I am especially intruiged by the concept of "Bleak House", and the evolution of your artwork. I hope you do publish a compendium of your work, a nice "coffee table" book next year, I would love to see it. (*After* you have signed all the proper Hobbit paperwork, of course!)

Plus: I just have to say, that (like with you) Abe Saphien is my favorite Mignola character and, having already been spoiled for Film 2, all I can say is.....if you ever choose to make HB3, there had better be a satisfactory sense of closure regarding the Abe character, the same way as it appears to be shaping up with Hellboy, or I will be very disappointed! Wink
(I can't say any more, of course, without posting spoilers, so...)

LOL... [In reply to] Can't Post

no, don't worry, nothing like that. After you've seen the film, you'll know what I mean....when I compare his situation to that of Hellboy. Warning: even the fanboys may have a lump in their throat.

No worries, no rush... [In reply to] Can't Post

Speculating is more than half the fun in a project like this. And also, it makes us (or at least me) think about how I would do things and how I would like to see things. And I dare say, that makes me a little creative sometimes... So by not telling us much, you are a very good influence on me ;-)

No explanation is required, we know where to go for our news and will be waiting Patiently...or perhaps sometimes impatiently for all the "official news" to come. Thanks so much for keeping us updated even if it is with "No News". Wink

But we will be going on speculation, just for the fun, and see how well we did (or didn't).

Good lunch with all the upcoming activities, I'll be anxiously awaiting the News News.
