Getting to know you questions request thread for January Can't Post

Hi All

After a long hiatus due to all the Hobbit news we're back :)

This month we'll be interviewing another uber fan Peter Kenny from Brisbane Australia.

For more information about Peter visit here for some background into his extensive Tolkien collection and here to his Proudfoot Foundation, which he has set up to promote literacy in children.

Peter's a lovely bloke, so ask away guys :) Oh and multiple questions are fine too (keep forgetting to say that Blush)

*hugs & love*

One book to rule them all
One book to find them
One book to bring them all
And in TORn bind them
In the land of TORnadoes...where the brilliant play

The Mayans were right! [In reply to] Can't Post

The world is about to end! Luckily, Tolkien fans escape onboard a specially design spaceship. You can take only one piece of memorabilia from your massive collection - what would it be, and why?

Where in Australia to do you see The Shire, and where do you see Mordor? / [In reply to] Can't Post

 

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

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís 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 beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

What!?! How did I miss this thread? [In reply to] Can't Post

Angelic

I have some questions for Mr. Kenny:

1. What piece of Tolkien ephemera began your collection?

2. Are there any items associated with Jackson's new trilogy that you have your eye on? (I like the Funko plush dolls myself.)

3. The Hobbit has inspired many youngsters to begin reading over the generations. What other authors do you recommend to new readers through your Proudfoot Foundation?

Looking forward to your article Kel Smile

Questions for Peter [In reply to] Can't Post

1. Why did you decide on being a Hobbit and not, for instance, the librarian in Minas Tirith?

2. You have seen a lot of the world. What is your favourite place? And what is the most crazy thing that happened to you during your travels?

3. What is your most precious piece in your collection?

4. What are you hoping for will be released as a statue in the future?

How can one ever top [In reply to] Can't Post

DanielLB's question! That's going to be the toughest of all! Laugh

Who were your heroes, when you were a young child? Did you ever write a letter to Tolkien? And have you visited all the Middle-earth locations in New Zealand yet?
