The Hobbit Annual 2013 Can't Post

Saw this book today, aimed at the kids. Had a synopsis on each Dwarf. From what I can remember(Iw as in a hurry) :
Dori: is the strongest Dwarf(WHAT after Dwalin?-seems odd)
Bifur: Cannot speak and uses sign language- due to the axehead in his head?

Also they have their weapons shown, though Bombur doesnt have his ladle as a weapon.

Dori [In reply to] Can't Post

I think Dori might have been described as the strongest somewhere in the book.

Yup, Dori is the strongest (in the book) [In reply to] Can't Post

Actually [In reply to] Can't Post

I actually just got my Annual/Almanac yesterday. Thismorning I scanned some of what hadn't -- the Dwarves profiles you mention among them. They can be found on my tumblr here.
There are a few pics that also haven't hit the internet yet, scattered through the book... I scanned one of Elrond and the beard silhouettes, too.
:)

(also, this is my first post here. Hi! I've actually been lurking every day since just after the movie was announced. I love this site!)
Edit: Linked to the tag that all the images are on, instead of my blog homepage, so it'd be easier to find.

Linking to scans of those descriptions is more than enough [In reply to] Can't Post

There's a fine line between sharing a few things from a book and scanning entire sections that crosses over to violating copyright. Since we respect copyrights here (and their owners' attorneys Laugh), we'd rather not see any more links to scans from the book posted, or linked to, here.

By the way, welcome Olessan! Smile

Thank you! It's amazing the kind of community there is here. I'm not familiar with this type of forum interface, and usually hang around on VBulletin architecture, though, so I'm still getting used to it, hah.

And exactly; I originally wasn't going to post these (I don't usually scan books I buy, I find it uncomfortable), and was originally considering just typing up the Dwarves' profiles instead of scanning, and I'm not going to post any more. Thorin's has already online for a few weeks now, though, so, I guess that gave me a bit of confidence (as well as three neat bookmarks I needed to photocopy so as not to cut the book!). x3
If you like, I can replace the link with typed-up profiles like I originally planned. =)

Mhm. Bilbo, Gandalf, and Thorin have their own two page spreads with a few new images each -- Thorin's has been online for some time now. There's Thranduil, of course, and Elrond and Gollum have a one-page profile as well. Nothing new there, except perhaps the text accompanying. :3
(Those pictures of Wargs and Goblins that leaked a few weeks ago are in there too.)

Basically, it's a fantastic book and definitely worth the $15! <3

kind of like how video killed the radio star [In reply to] Can't Post

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iwuy4hHO3YQ

Except that really, it didn't. Tongue
I still listen to the radio all the time and the two (video and radio) can work to mutually benefit each other - although that is a tough balance to keep up.

As for the internet and copyright, I see something similar happening.
Actuallly, it is easier to catch plagiarism now using things like turnitin.com. With the help of technology, many plagiarised dissertations have been retroactively caught and punished (or so my teacher told me). It is easier and faster to trace sources of things.
But the game is different. Just like power over what the public was permitted to hear was lost (or at least decentralized) with video ... power over what the public has the option to read is being lost - or at least decentralized.
It is possible to develop technology that resists the stealing of copyrighted material and that is actually being done now as we speak. It's just like an arms race, though. For each method of stopping the theft a new method of getting around that security pops up - rinse and repeat.
So there are less jobs and smaller percentages of the market share controlled by a select few organizations, but I think that many of those organizations will continue. But they may need to incorporate and/or consider the internet distribution methods and issues into what they do to survive. And where jobs and market share is lost in the physical publishing area, new jobs are created in software, website design, R&D, etc. Maybe it isn't always a complete balance of jobs out and jobs in.
Even for research publications, there may be less of a certain elevated society level publications available - but there are a lot more less high quality online journals (from what I am learning so far) so that it is a lot easier to "get published" but a lot harder to "get published in certain journals".

Pre-Christmas treats! [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm deliberately holding back on buying any of the visual companions/annuals etc. and going to get into the swing of it late November/early December as a pre-Christmas treat and also because it'll be so beautifully evocative of back in 2001-2003 when the LOTR films were released!

This Christmas is going to be awesome beyond words!
