grow a gut and frizz the hair. And no wonder Dwarves are always grubby: what a great final resting place for dirt: no vacancy in those bushy beards or frizzy mops? Just cling to the crevices on the uber-dehydrated faces Tongue

Utter waste of all that illegal manframe upgrades Tongue compatibility issues bound to burst through anyway... better that what busted in Erebor stays in Erebor. (Nope, don't see them commercials but I know what it means fershure)

Anyway, ale and beer are full of healthful vitamins and nutrients, which explains the spectacular hair of the dwarves. Plus by generous quaffing a nutritive hair wash occurs gratis.TongueCool

     HAcF and a little touch of dwarf love (not ... both together, you understand...) [In reply to]  

Finally - I've found a page that will let me watch a couple of HaCF clips without region blocking. Smile
This page is rather critical of the show, but never mind. It's the very first I've been able to see of it! And that first clip ... BlushBlushBlush

But I've come in to come out on my secretive partiality to a certain dwarf. This partiality has been lying dormant beneath my Elven King thralldom - a state that permits few other states of being, as we all know. However, come this Sunday, me... here...this: http://ozcomiccon.com/...?GID=256279146044025 HeartHeartHeart

Sorry. Unsure The file storage I was counting on isn't working for me. (Google: it could be my internet connection, my attempts at uploading just hang up at about 95% and refuse to compete; it looks like they want me to install an 'automatic' download assist, which might solve the problem, but I really don't like the sound of that... If you wanted to point me at a tumblr pic, I could spoil you for it as much as you like. (Though it looks like there isn't a real Spoiler Cut tag here. Crazy)

Was going to ask if you were to paste the screenies on tumblr, but well, you've pre-answered already so that's ok. Thanks for the offer, but I think I will wait, or find another alternative - can't imagine being spoiled and trying to imagine the scene happening Crazy I will continue to live vicariously though tumblr GiFs for now Tongue

     Aaaaand here's the Q&A itself [In reply to]  

On FB.

So seems LP got an official FB page for the Q&A, though I bet we shouldn't expect to see much activity on it. Was thinking that he might just dictate answers, but looking at how the grammar rules was disregarded the further along the Q&A went, I guess LP was doing the typing himself Tongue Like the way he opened his answer to "Hey Lee - Yesterday, Heiyin Yeung asked "What is the hardest part playing this character?"" Heheh. Hmmm... Interesting Joe stuff. Guess he's one of those actors who feel protective with the characters he plays? Now I want to watch it even more Crazy

Hm, yes I see all that. Interesting and thoughtful answers, but you can see how he might feel completely inundated by the sheer number of questions and the outpouring of love from some of them. It looks like he may have answered a bunch that arrived in a certain timeframe -- or I wonder if he went through selecting? If the top posts are the most recent, it looks like the HACF user stepped in to moderate / assist.

Yes, yes, and yes. And Galaxies. So many beautiful words strung together on this site, waxing poetically. Wish I could do that. I think it tweaks the brain's chemistry by actually inserting pictures, not just words, into the brain. JRRT does that. This is one reason why we are all here.

Aw. I really wish more people here had access to it. (My own method of viewing is kind of on the down low.) I'd love to be able to discuss it with someone.

     *sniff* methinks elves have doth spent too much time.... [In reply to]  

in the fields with the plants they use to create rope from (Hah! - very medicinal I am sure......) . Or perhaps as usual purloining Thranduil's cellars - *snigger* doth not the Elven King notice his wine being watered by his lackadaisical minions - or perhaps this is why Thranduil is SO ill-tempered?Evil

Uber-dehydrated? Frizzy? Nay, for [snooty] elves doth have lived in their holes and valleys for so many ages, seeking enlightenment by being so light-headed from hunger (but very PURE on the inside at least, as various internal organs wither away from lack of use) that they fail to mark the marvelous adaptations of, say, the noble and modest race of dwarves, who exist in a spiritual and respectful partnership with the high mountains and silver hill streams themselvesHeart.

And so, partaking of a healthful and fulfilling diet of meats, cheeses, breads, and nutritious ales and liquors, the dwarven races have evolved fine complexions and luxurious manes of hair, possessing natural lubricants that, much like that of coats of the graceful sea otters and marine birds, are both protective and allow dwarves to easily comb away any temporary dishevelment.
*Beautiful as everHeartHeartHeartHeart*

This is easily noted through these films, for instance, the gloriousness of Thorin's and other dwarves' hair and faces at Bard's, in spite of their disgraceful treatment and necessity of flight from the capricious cruelties of Thranduil (including the poor fare of receiving a supper of "mixed greens" and stale lembas croutons.)

So long hath the elven race wafted about in either modified gym outfits or COMPLETELY unsuitable robes, which either render one prone to tripping, or, unable to expand one's lungs enough to take a decent breath (probably explains why so many of them have syrupy voices, it's like trying to jog in a saunaUnsure) that they cannot appreciate the sensibility of the multiple layers of sturdy dwarven garments. Nor, having become wasted over the years from so much rabbit food, would elves even consider the marvelous tone and musculature the average dwarf doth possess; seldom seen, the dwarven physique produces feelings of hopeless inadequacy in other races worldwide.Shocked



*SO FIERCEHeartHeartHeart - Thorin in his wanderings in the southern lands.....Tongue)

(The site of so much uncloth'd dwarf masculinity of course was the true reason for Lindir's distress, but lo! how he secretly envied the dwarves not being stuffed into some asphyxiating, throttling tunic that didn't bunch up when one attempted to walk....).

Though admittedly the elvish race CAN walk on snow, thanks to their twiggy frames. Useful as long a strong breeze doesn't come along.....Evil. Unfortunate that windy conditions are a regular feature of mountain lifestyle.Evil



*Cough* you were commenting on "upgrades?". Verily, I fear 'tis impossible to upgrade thisAngelic (PS. we can't wait for you to come back eitherHeartHeartHeart, oh King of the Heartstopping Hair and Voice et cetera.....)

Eh, would you be able to point to your first mention of Thranduil's Thralls? I think it behooves the thralldom to learn the heritage. And it'd be a great fun-fact to put in the thread starters.

     Can do! [In reply to]  

It was here, while suggesting a new name possibility for Thorin's fans, that I first publicly called 'our kind' Thranduil's Thralls. I've been coming up with names for groupies for years, whether they like it or not. ;) I'd jokingly suggested 'thralls' for Thorin's harem a year earlier, but they hadn't accepted the term. It feels more appropriate for those of us who appreciate His Royal Fabulousness, anyway, so I'm glad it stuck! =)
