Statistics on the first year of CHOW, by DanielLB [In reply to] Can't Post

Everything that follows from here is entirely Daniel's work in looking at a breakdown of CHOW and its participants.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Over 52 weeks, we have discussed 46 movie chapters - that's 234 minutes of film, with 21 CHOW leaders, totalling 1069 posts! That's about 0.4% of the total posts in The Hobbit forum. Which can only mean one thing - we need more chat!

I would have participated more often but it took me over half a year to pay attention enough to figure out what CHOW was!Tongue Chalk it up to me being lazy and not bothering to actually click the threads and answer my own question.Crazy

Now that I know what it is and I've participated in some of the Thanduil-related CHOWs I'm enjoying it and I hope to add to the discussion more often in the future!Angelic...At least if my class schedules will let me.Pirate

**CHOW Compilation: Every Thorinís Hair Comment To Date!** [In reply to] Can't Post

In case you havenít noticed, I end every one of my CHOW posts with a comment on Thorinís hair. So, I decided to compile them into one post for this special edition thread. I didnít originally start out including an official Thorinís Hair Watch in my posts until the Company set out from Bag End, so let me just add in these quick comments to make up for that: the Prologue (Nice), arrival and entry into Bag End (Whoa), the entire dinner scene (Mmmm), in the hallway with Balin (OMG), and Misty Mountains Cold (Wow).

Due to technical difficulties, I am unable to include any photos in this post. (Riven Delve, that means you're safe from any unexpected fainting for the moment). Iíll try to remedy that with a follow on post.



AUJ: The Adventure Begins
(And oh yes, Thorinís hair looks great as it sets out on its adventure)


AUJ: The Battle of Moria
Thorin's Hair Watch: well, what can I say? It looked awesome in battle, swaying to and fro during the fighting. An excellent outing for it's first action sequence.

AUJ: Radagast the Brown
For some odd reason, I didnít do one for this chapter. Apparently I was still under the misguided notion that I shouldnít comment on Thorinís hair if he wasnít actually in the scene. Silly Kim.

AUJ: The Trollshaws
Thorinís hair: well, it just looks magnificent in this scene, dark yet gray streaked, sun-dappled and gently waving in the breeze.

AUJ: Roast Mutton
Thorinís hair: good action shots, nice little movements in the slight breeze at the end. Still looks good when tied up in a sack, displaying its versatility.

AUJ: A Troll Hoard
Thorinís hair: outside in daylight Ė very natural, blowing gently in the breeze. In the torchlight? Verrrry nice indeed Ė the firelight glinting, emphasizing the highlights, and draped so well over the fur.

AUJ: The Hill of Sorcery
Thorinís hair: as mentioned above, it looked quite magnificent when first observing Radagast, and continued to do so as the company was standing around waiting for the wizards.

AUJ: Warg-scouts
Thorin's hair: so many opportunities for admiration here! When it swings around as Thorin turns to look at Ori announcing that the ponies have bolted, flowing behind him as they run (and run and run), when it flips over his shoulder as he leaps down into the entrance to the secret tunnel... yet another reason this is one of my favorite scenes.

AUJ: The Hidden Valley
Thorinís hair: lovely as usual in the first part of the scene, then an errant lock falls over his brow as the dwarves enter Rivendell and get surrounded by elves. Spiffed up a bit for dinner, so all locks back in place and looking quite fetching in the light of the sunset.

AUJ: Moon Runes
Thorinís hair: oooooh, shadows and moonlight do wonders for Thorinís hair Ė all dark and mysterious. Shining, shimmering, splendid (sorry, Iíve had that song stuck in my head all day for no apparent reason, but seems to fit here).

AUJ: The Defiler
Thorinís hair: so, when we first see Azog, heís standing at the edge, looking out over the countryside by moonlight. What isnít immediately evident is that heís actually staring at something glimmering in the far distance. He canít quite make it out, which is why heís staring so intensely. However, if you look really hard, you can see that it is, in fact, Thorinís hair glinting in the moonlight. Azog is instinctively jealous of all that magnificent flowing hair, having none himself, which explains why heís in such a bad mood.

AUJ: The White Council
Thorinís hair: presumably, itís had a nice shampoo and rinse while resting in Rivendell, and is now ready to resume its adventure! Catches a nice breeze as they head out on the trail.

AUJ: Over Hill
Thorinís hair: the first time we get to see Thorinís hair wet Ė ooooh, looks fantastic! And once they get inside the cave and it swings around when heís walking around and then stops to talk with Balin Ė quite striking.

AUJ: Under Hill
Thorinís hair: looks just as great lying down as it does when heís standing up!

AUJ: The Goblin King
Thorinís hair: when heís standing in front of the Goblin King, talk about a lionís mane! I take back my comments about it being too light in GoblintownĖ there was just enough firelight around to effectively highlight his hair here.

AUJ: Riddles in the Dark
Thorinís hair: also not appearing in this scene (but you know it still looks fabulous in the firelight up in the main cavern).

AUJ: Gandalf Returns
Thorinís hair: thanks for the close up action screencap as Thorin prepares to fight the Goblin King; his hair looks great and ready for battle!

AUJ: Brass Buttons
Thorinís hair: although we technically canít see it in this scene, we know from extrapolating from the previous scene that it looks awesome as the dwarves prepare to fight off the goblins.

AUJ: Out of the Frying-Pan
Thorinís hair: looks excellent in the twirling shots. And the fighting shots. And the running shots. And when Thorin yells ďCut the rope!Ē And did I mention the twirling?

AUJ: Bilbo's Mercy
Thorinís hair: sure looked lovely streaming out behind Thorin as he ran past.

AUJ: And Into the Fire
Thorinís hair: oooh, Thorinís hair by sunset light this time. Most flattering. And just slightly mussed from their escape and run down the mountain.

AUJ: Azog Attacks
<this CHOW was skipped over, will add a comment in the special post this weekend>

AUJ: A Good Omen
Thorinís hair: flowing behind him as the eagles fly, spread out on the rock of the Carrock, the lionís mane it all its glory in the morning sunlight, talk about ending on a perfect note!

DOS: The Quest for Erebor
Thorinís hair: well, would you look at that, Thorinís hair is back and better than ever! A little damp under the hood, but got nice and toasty in front of the fire.

DOS: Wilderland
Thorinís hair: thank goodness, Thorinís hair looks good in any light and staging, and especially when running and flowing in the breeze. That helps me get through the initial scenes.

DOS: The Master Summons
Thorinís hair: well, we all know the real reason Azog hates Thorin (hair envy), and since Thorinís hair looked so awesome in the previous scene, it make sense that Azog is really mad in this scene.

DOS: The Commander of Legions
Thorinís hair: well, even though we donít see it, you just know Azog is thinking about it as he argues with the necromancer because he wants to continue his hunt for that dwarf with the glorious hair.

DOS: Queer Lodgings
Thorinís hair: well, it just looks wonderful and freshly groomed after a good nightís sleep, doesnít it?

DOS: The Elven-Gate
Thorinís hair: ah, back to the wet hair look thanks the rain, all dark and silky.

DOS: Mirkwood
Thorinís hair: starting to get a little fluffy and messy, just as we like it.


DOS: Flies and Spiders
Thorinís hair: who knew cobwebs in long dark hair could be such a volumizing hair care product? Quite attractive I must say.

DOS: The Woodland Realm
Thorinís hair: post-action and covered in cobwebs, well it just looks fantastic as heís stalking across the entrance to the Woodland Realm.

DOS: The Elvenking
Thorinís hair: weíve got a real showcase in this chapter, it just looked flat out fantastic covered in cobwebs even as he held his own against that snooty elf. A simply glorious cloud of wavy tresses.

DOS: King and Captain
Thorinís hair: well obviously, the reason why Thranduil is so irritated in this scene is that heís still thinking about Thorinís glorious hair and wondering why he can never get his own to be all thick and wavy, no matter how much he tries messing around with mousse and with curlers.

DOS: Feast of Starlight
Thorinís hair: not appearing in this scene, but Kili is obviously wishing he had his uncleís luxurious mane to better impress the elf.

DOS: Barrels out of Bond
Thorinís hair: looks absolutely fluffy and fabulous when he says, ďdo as he saysĒ after Bilbo looks at him when trying to persuade the dwarves to get into the barrels.
Thorinís hair: itís wet, what more do we need to say? Letís see, how about: his soaked silky tresses have an appealing sheen and luster unmatched by any other.



DOS: The High Fells
Thorinís hair: back on the river, itís still wet and lookin fine.

DOS: Bard the Bowman
Thorinís hair: Gah! Where do I start? The epitome of the wet look! Sleek, silky, lustrous - river water is obviously a very good treatment.

DOS: The Nature of Evil
Thorinís hair: I imagine Thranduil is pretty mad that not only did the dwarves get away, but that Thorin looked so majestic doing it (because of course, since he knows about everything thatís happening in his kingdom, he would have received a full report on how magnificent Thorinís hair looked during the escape).

In Reply To

Yes indeed. This motif is woven throughout the Hobbit movies: someone wants Thorin's head. Now, Gandalf, et al, think it's because the Baddies want Thorin dead. But the wiser of us know that it's because they are victims of Hair Envy, and their primary motivation is to get Thorin's head of hair.

A motif, I tell you!







In Reply To

Thorinís hair: itís wet, what more do we need to
say?




Not a thing. I understand you perfectly.Cool




Ah, Kim, many thanks. I think we can all take home a valuable lesson here--The Hobbit is about the ill effects of greed. Moral: Don't be greedy for Thorin's Majestic Hair. Humbly accept the limitations of your own limp, sorry locks, and the world will be a better place for everyone.

And it's a good thing too [In reply to] Can't Post

Excellent observations RD. For some reason, the Majestic Scrunchie reminds me of the Holy Hand Grenade - "The Majestic Srunchie shall be wound 3 times around Thorin's majestic hair...3 is the number of times it shall be wound..." Tongue


Unfortunately, the technical difficulties are persisting, so I'm not sure I'll be able to post all of the photos that accompanied the original posts. For now, let's see if I can include a couple of key examples of the wonder and glory that is Thorin's hair..


**Requisite disclaimer: Warning. There are photos of a #Majestic nature in this post. Those readers of a more delicate and sensitive nature may feel overcome, so we recommend having smelling salts at the ready and a nice soft surface nearby on which to land.**

You're quite welcome. And here's a special CHOW post just for you:


Nori's hair is an impressive example of the intricacies that dwarf braiding and styling, not to mention integration with the eyebrows, an often overlooked and undervalued combination.
