Welcome [In reply to] Can't Post

Just wanted to add my thanks and the fun of deciphering the riddle (while, trying to) has been for me. Anxious to see if I am right or not.

I actually take your post to mean that the news is positive, that your in and the official announcement will shortly be here. Welcome to six years of your life! I look forward to seeing your adaptation and interpretation of Middle Earth.

Cheers!

Very impressive. Your riddle is worthy of the most cleverest of Hobbits! Laugh

Coming in Late... [In reply to] Can't Post

Welcome, Guillermo! I suppose it is our turn to pose a riddle back, or be eaten. At this point at the end of an all-too-busy Sunday, I think I'll just slather on the ketchup and lie down on the bun quietly. Perhaps a sharper brain than mine can come up with one?

I'll let the more riddle-inclined of us figure out this one, but it's really great to see you here!

I'm gonna be really busy tomorrow at work sadly, but I'll be sure to sneak a few minutes in at some point.

I'm so excited, I can't sleep now!

My crack at it [In reply to] Can't Post

I couldn't find this idea yet, so here's my go at it


---

A riddle for you all-
Half familiar, half unknown. Two Movies, 'The Hobbit' and the bridge
A thing it is, ¨It almost is-¨
This thing all things devours:
Birds, beasts, trees, flowers;
Gnaws iron, bites steel;
Grinds hard stones to meal;
Slays king, ruins town,
And beats high mountain down. Time

The day of the moon will be
when all is revealed to thee
Questions will cease
Answers will please
We´ll learn of the Shire
and all you desire. Monday

At ten minus Three. 7
Joining to be
Ten minus Eight 2
Add to the slate
of the two dozen princes 24
that die without winces.
And add to each day of
the week. One Week
--



I go with the general thinking that it nearly is Time and the Two Movies will be announced on a Monday


The last paragraph states which monday that is. I like the time zone conversion idea of 7 and 2 and my little time-zone-convertor research shows that is true, so that would mean
7am Monday in Los Angeles and 2am Tuesday in New Zealand. That would explain the Two Dozen Princes that die without winces as it is not 2am monday but a day (24 hours) later in NZ, without any time having past. The time passes (dies) without anyone noticing (no wincing)


Adding each day of the week probably means one week from now, so that would be next monday the 28th at 7am LA Time

Whether you are Mr. Del Toro or not...welcome! Great riddle!

If you are, I hope you can keep us up to date on everything "Concerning Hobbits"! Cool

What about this....... A riddle for you all-

Half familiar, half unknown. The Hobbit Movie, Unnamed Bridge Movie

A thing it is, ¨It almost is-¨ The Hobbit is ready to go into production!!, The second movie is neary completed (Plot/Script, Characters, Places, things of that sort need to be worked out)

This thing all things devours:
Birds, beasts, trees, flowers;
Gnaws iron, bites steel;
Grinds hard stones to meal;
Slays king, ruins town,
And beats high mountain down. Time?? IE: Tell us When!!

These next two get me....

The day of the moon will be
when all is revealed to thee
Questions will cease
Answers will please
We´ll learn of the Shire
and all you desire. Some say Monday (Day, Moon) and tonight is a full moon and it will still be visible in the morning But what Monday

At ten minus Three. 7am
Joining to be Guillermo joining the crew, sun and moon is the Same sky
Ten minus Eight 2
Add to the slate +
of the two dozen princes
that die without winces. 12 (24hrs =12hrs am and 12hrs pm......12hs pm= the princes that die without winces)
And add to each day of
the week. +7.....so..... 2+12+7=21.......21 What??? 21st of April???.....21hrs after he posted??? The best time is porbably tomorrow April 21, 2008 7am

This is SO GREAT!! Thank you, Mr. Del Toro - and hello to all you others!! [In reply to] Can't Post

Hi!!

I'm new here, although not at all new to the world of The Professor. I have monitored the recent events VERY closely with the help of the fantastic TORn, but somehow never quite gotten to joining the boards here. But when I saw that GDT himself was here, then... I couldn't keep away any longer!

So I hope to be embraced into this wonderful community of yours...

Cheers from Denmark,

Dmitri

P.S. Oh, and obviously, the news is thrilling to the bone!! Laugh

Hi =D [In reply to] Can't Post

Hello, as a long time lurker to TORN I thought it was time to actually join up and actively participate.

Welcome Mr Del Toro also, that riddle is on tough one.

If however what has been put forward as an answer is correct, with the announcement coming at 7:00 in LA and 02:00 Tuesday in NZ then we are less than an hour away from an answer. if we are wrong however then obviously we are not.
