ON TORn, a Founders Day 2012 parody tribute Can't Post

 
In 1998, Michael 'Xoanon' Regina and Erica 'Tehanu' Challis started a website using all of the information they could get related to the filming of The Lord of the Rings, including exclusive "spy" reports from Tehanu's visit to the New
Zealand set. This activity first got her escorted off the set, and then invited
back on to take an official look around and meet director Peter Jackson. In early
1999, Chris ‘Calisuri’ Pirrotta, a designer, came across the site and asked if they needed some design and technical help to grow the site and make it a central web location for other Tolkien fans. Calisuri's friend William ‘Corvar’ Thomas was brought aboard to provide server and business help. Xoanon, Tehanu, Calisuri and Corvar then formed The One Ring, Inc. and are the sole owners/founders of TheOneRing.net. (from wikipedia entry)

This song parody is a tribute to TheOneRing.net, its said four founders that made it their lasting legacy, the admins that keep it running, the community that participates in keeping it alive, and our common tastes and interests and shared ideas and thoughts that bring us together as members of that community. 

ON TORn,

a parody of I’m Yours by Jason Mraz (source links below)

Well, it dawned on Xoanon and Tehanu who felt it,
They knew that the films would be so hot, so they melded
Their efforts with two more
Calusuri and Corvar made four

 When the rumors done come out they marked 'em the fastest
Why's Arwen at the Deep?  I think this needs intervention.
They kept an eye on every turn
And would post news as they learned some, 

And I don't hesitate, I know
I know
There's Tolkien news
On TORn!

Well, open up your mind, discuss with me
The L-O-T-R films, that means all three,
Talk about the books where we find love love love,
Listen to the soundtrack of the movies, Enya’s May it Be,
Howard’s haunting melodies,
It’s
Ol'
Peter Jackson’s work that I
love love love love
Love!

So I don’t hesitate, no more,
I know
I cannot wait, I’m sure
There’s a need to congregate
On message boards
This is my fate
On TORn!

Doo da doo doo-cha doo’cha doo do 'n' dooo,
Don’t cha want chat on,
What’s your thought on Faramir?
Were the changes too dear?

Soo de bop be pwom puh pwom
Whoaah
Whoaah, whoa wo wo wo wo
haha! Hmmm-mmm-mmm!

I been spending way too long waiting for the latest trailer
And bending backwards just to know if Tauriel's the jailer
The games fill up the glass
Of my screen, like Scenes from the Hat
Like our Captions, TIME, B-S, Walks, no better series,
Like Middle-Earth Conspiracy for posting witty theories,
That's what we aim to do
Our playing is our virtue

And I don't hesitate no more,
no more
I check our message board

(I don't hesitate) Well, open up your mind, discuss with me
(no more, no more) The L-O-T-R films, even Bakshi
(I log right in) Log onto the boards and you'll find
(On TORn) this site is yours

(I need to congregate) I need to I need to

(on message boards) I need to congregate

(This is my fate) On the message boards, this is this is this is my fate

(On TORn) On TORn……nahhh!  Brrrap op um day
doo doo doocha doot dooden
ooh on TORn, ooh on TORn
baby just believe this site is yours

[fade out]
