"I stepped out of my body to let God slide in; although I'm still dressed in flesh that I spiritually died in. Alive in Christ a new creation started breathin', Life exists and through this came completion. ... I'm not that person anymore (more!)! That's what blood was shed for! No longer a failure, livin' life more abundantly, therefore you'll never see me livin' less than victory."
John Reuben.

"Desperation, needing You; every last breath I scream for You. Shatter me into a million pieces, make me new. ... Break me, mold me, make me what You want me to be; I am Yours, for You to use, so take and replace me with You."

"Under a light in Bethlehem, I was sifting through the sand; the saline burned my eyes, I was looking for Your hand. I gave up on myself, and left my pride disarmed; I cried out 'I'm alone!' and found myself in Your arms. 'Rest in Me, oh, My love; I have loved you before the world began. Rest in Me, oh, My love; you'll never wander too far to reach My hand.'"

Happy Anniversary, TORN! [In reply to] Can't Post

It is always a delight to spend time among the wonderful, amazing and delightful people who gather here, but never more than on this day! My thanks to each and every one of you, because you have all had a part in making this site what it is - unique and very, very special!

Cheers, TORNsibs!

My Personal Fav Top 10 TORN Moments [In reply to] Can't Post

Hi all, this is a pretty personal list, so it should really be considered 'My Top 10 Best Experiences Because of TORN'...but that is too long winded. I may think of a few more as the weekend progresses, 10 years is a LONG time to be doing this! Cheers!

10. Seeing FOTR trailer first time, crying

Yes, this is a tad embarrassing, but I did cry when seeing the FOTR trailer for the first time on TV. It was the night it made its debut during a commercial break in 'Angel'. I remember feeling so immensely proud that the film the team had 'worked' on looked so amazing.

9. Seeing my name/torn in various newspapers, TV, magazines, websites

Being modest, I have no been accused of it. However like many people, I do like to see some recognition for the hard work we put in. I can recall the various times my name or TORN (or more importantly, TORN labeled CORRECTLY) were in magazines like Wired, Yahoo!, Hollywood Reporter and so on. Who wouldn't like to be asked to appear in a photo shoot about LOTR? TV crews are so much fun, the stress however of doing a live broadcast is incredible, and not a pleasant experience. However it is still a thrill to see yourself on TV, without having to have done anything illegal!

8. Visiting New Line Offices

New Line Cinema, yes, say what you will, but visiting those offices was a lot of fun for me. Ironically enough years before TORN I sent them my resume asking for work, and they mailed me back saying they would contact me if there were any open positions, I kept that letter all those years.

At the time I visited the offices LOTR was in full swing, with TTT about to be released and the FOTR DVD on the way, actually Guillermo Del Toro's Blade II was just released, so times were high at the offices.

7. Holding Oscars

The 3 Oscar parties we hosted were a BLAST, and what's more the actual Oscar winners came to see us. My wife and I were so excited to see everyone, and the golden man!

6. Various TORN Dinners

The Stinking rose, The Cat n Fiddle, and many other places hold very fond memories for me. Basically any place where all the TORN staff can come together in one place is special for me.

5. Meeting stars like Ian McKellen, Viggo, John Rhys-Davies, Dom Monaghan

I've had the honor of meeting most members of 'The Fellowship' from the films, and people like John Howe, Alan Lee, Richard Taylor, Daniel Falconer and others. My wife and I took a memorable trip to Canton, NY to meet Viggo Mortensen, that was such a blast. Good times.

4. Meeting Cliff, Chris, Erica, Bill, whole team the first time

The first time we all gathered together in one place was LA, and it was a blast, again..meeting TORN staff is ALWAYS golden for me. Lets do it again in NYC!

3. Oscar Night for Return of the King

What a night, we spent the weekend preparing for the party, from vacuuming to decorating and dressing up. The TORN staff all wrote special messages to PJ and the team, and we partied the night away.

2. Lunch with PJ

While in New Zealand (see memory #1) I was lucky enough to have lunch with Peter Jackson. We ate Indian food and chatted about all things Tolkien, Kong and the like. It was at his Part Road Post studio, a truly remarkable place. I have met Peter a few times previous, but this was my one and only one-on-one time with him, it was truly magical.

1. Trip to New Zealand

Ubisoft's King Kong contest was posted specifically on KongisKing.net, however the grand prize was any LOTR fan dream; a trip to New Zealand with a special tour of the WETA studios! This was an amazing experience to say the least, from Te Papa to the Wellington quays and driving up Mt. Victoria, what a blast!
