Oh, a few... [In reply to] Can't Post

I remember the incident with Dom in the audience at ORC- that was hilarious.

The tribute made me teary-eyed. Wow. And the adventure has begun again.

Nice! [In reply to] Can't Post

I was not fortunate enough to attend any of these events, but I recognize many faces, and not just those of the actors. Some great shots.

Very cool! [In reply to] Can't Post

Hmm, I think of myself as not very good with faces, but I recognized quite a lot -- including myself! Sly I'm honored! Such a nice overview of different events. And I guess we've got a lot more to look forward to, too! Better dig my pink Girllum dress out of the closet. Laugh

Altaira looks SO HAPPY in that one pic - perfectly sums up how we all felt about the Oscars that night!

Mods up! What a great grand finale! [In reply to] Can't Post

Just when we all thought the party was over -- you show up with this as an encore!

What a perfect ending!

That is one fine tribute -- and what a nice surprise to find it here today.

**goes back to watch again...and again..**


Well, I guess I won't get back to work today after all!

Fabulous pics, and very nicely put together - thank you! Great to find ourselves 'looking upon a familiar' face or two! A lovely compilation - thanks. Smile

I've been choked up so often this weekend while reading all those V.I.P. messages and everyones stories... This just did me in. I am such a teeny, teeny, teeny, tiny, teeny part of what makes up TORn, but I have had such great fun living it all through your eyes and images.

What a finale to be sure !! Bravo !




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.

Well done MrC!

It looks like it's been just one big party here. Which it has!

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauron’s master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded b*****d with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

As i just related on the yahoo thingy [In reply to] Can't Post

-To my brother Larry whom, for many things i feel very grateful for, the latest being that incredible video, done with much style, was beautiful. That really tugged on the heart. Thank you Larry.

''What connects Nature to the spiritual, or requires the presence of the latter? In positive terms, as Alkis Kontos points out, when nature was still largely experienced as integral, alive and active, 'It was the spiritual dimension of the world, its enchanted, magical quality that rendered it infinite, not amenable to complete calculability; spirit could not be quanified; it permitted and invited mythologization.' And I would add, it still is and does.''
Patrick Curry-Defending Middle-Earth-Tolkien: Myth and Modernity - chapter: 'The Sea: Spirituality and Ethics.'

May the grace of Manwë let us soar with eagle's wings!

In the air, among the clouds in the sky
Here is where the birds of Manwe fly
Looking at the land, and the water that flows
The true beauty of earth shows
With the stars of Varda lighting my way
In all the realms this is where I stay
In the realm of Manwë Súlimo

Thanks thanks thanks! [In reply to] Can't Post

I had a great time putting the photos together and wish I could have included more TORn staffers who don't get a lot of recognition and of course more fans, but we couldn't really expect anybody to watch a slide show any longer than 4 or 5 minutes.

But, I am really hoping that you would all make a list of known faces in there. Quite a few of you are there, but maybe everybody doesn't know each other. I don't really mean Elijah Wood, I think we know him, but how many knew it was Greendragon led off the singing portion of the presentation?

Maybe its not worth the time, but it seems fun to me.

Mostly though, thanks thanks thanks!

and it's not over yet.

This is staggering, MrCere. Beautiful.

Is there any way of adding it to our TORn digital collection?

Thank you for this... it's absolutely wonderful!
