Thanks to Simplyaven for letting us add this special addition of PROPS for the party.

CONGRATULATIONS TORn!

These are terrific! [In reply to] Can't Post

I love these. Alcarcalime and I didnít have any of these, but we do now. And to post them as a Props post was a wonderful idea. Thank you!

This was some party, wasnít it? Smile

Oh my! [In reply to] Can't Post

These are absolutely lovely!!! I had never seen them and I already set the Elrond one for a desktop! I'm going to save them all and switch between them. Thanks very much for posting them and it was my pleasure to support such a wonderful post! Smile

WOW... where did those images come from? [In reply to] Can't Post

I've used the Theoden one before - I'm sure I got it from here Laugh but I realized I couldn't get much work done with that sitting on my desktop... I'd keep staring and wondering what this was, and why that's there, and who used this here thing Blush

Yet they are beautiful as desktops because they are, well, "desk tops" in Middle-earth RL (am I losing it?? where's the boundary anymore?) CrazyEvil

Aren't they great [In reply to] Can't Post

I know what you mean about staring at these, there is so much to see in each one. The images may have been screenshots from the very beginning of each DVD. There is a short clip of each scene that takes you to the menu. Possibly the script banner on the top and bottom of each shot was added by Revie to make some incredible desktops. I checked the beginning of each DVD and this seems to be the location for each scene;

Bilbo - 1st disk FOTR
Elrond/Rivendell - 2nd disk FOTR
Saruman - 1st disk TT
Theoden - 2nd disk TT
Denethor - 1st disk ROTK
Frodo - 2nd disk ROTK

Thanks Revie!



Cheers!

You are very Welcome! [In reply to] Can't Post

Revie did an outstanding job putting these together.
This sure has been a great party. We had a busy RL weekend and could only pop-in every now and then to see what was going on. We're still trying to take it all in.

These are all excellent! [In reply to] Can't Post

I LOVE them! The only thing is...how am I going to decide which one to start with? Shocked

Well, I'm going to try and dl one onto my blackberry, then I can put one on my pc and one on my bb. At least that way I can pick 2 and not narrow it down to only one, but then...which one do I want on the bb and which on the pc? Where will I be looking more often? I take my bb with me everywhere, so maybe I pay more attention to the bb desktop choice...and how shall I rotate if I have two seperate scenes going on in 2 locations...OMG I'm goin to go crazy and I haven't even DL'd them yet! lol Crazy

Seriously though, thank you. This is very thoughtful! Smile

Close the door, put out the light.
You know they won't be home tonight.
The snow falls hard and don't you know?
The winds of Thor are blowing cold.
They're wearing steel that's bright and true
They carry news that must get through.

They choose the path where no-one goes.

They hold no quarter.

Okay, I've figured it out...for now... [In reply to] Can't Post

Bilbo's desktop is on my pc and Theoden's is on my Blackberry. Maybe when my hubby gets home I can put one on his pc and his blackberry too. Then I'll have 4 up and running to admire. Laugh

They are all so great! You've just made my whole day!

omg... These are so beautiful, they make me cry [In reply to] Can't Post

seriously... tears...

I'd forgotten about these *hangs head in shame*, but for the impact having them here and now is so heartwarming and perfect. Revie is brilliant and has such an incredible eye for capturing each character in these displays.

Thanks so much ordinaryhobbit. I'm going to keep them close by from now on. *sets Frodo as desktop*

Bless you and hob for always making me love this place and this story more and more.

I really need these new films to take me back to, and not re-introduce me to, that magical world.
