I'd love to... [In reply to] Can't Post

But I need a more lucrative occupation to pay for school. I don't know what your country's rate of compensation is for librarians, but in mine, it is very minimal in pay or an absolutely volunteer position. As a young adult, I really did try to get a situation in the local library, but as I did not attend the local school, I was not in the pool of acceptable candidates. I have, however, managed to advise the staff to acquire several of the recently released Tolkien related books, and so have done what I could to spread the cause of Tolkienlightenment in the world!

Yes Bofur is awesome! Smile Glad to have you!

Call me Rem, and remember, not all who ramble are lost...Uh...where was I?

One cat. [In reply to] Can't Post

He's feisty some of the time--very Jekyll and Hyde--but is usually quite a lazy fellow.

I've never purchased any of the merchandise, myself. Although getting the chance to hold a replica of Orcrist was pretty enticing. Cool

My socks are fluffy, but they're grey. Sorry about that.

Greetings to you all! [In reply to] Can't Post

Greetings!

My name is Alex! Smile I am a 24 year old, long-term Tolkien fan who has only JUST thought to join "The One Ring Net" message board! To be honest, I have followed TORN for years, and yet it never occurred to me to join the message board and chat with other fans--I feel a bit stupid in that regard, though I'm glad I've at last come to my senses! Tongue

I actually live in Tokyo, Japan, and have been here for five years. It is a beautiful, unique culture, and I recommend the tourist experience to all who love adventuring! Smile

About my hobbies...I enjoy a great many things, including reading, writing, traveling, learning languages, playing flute and piccolo, acting, directing, and more! I hope to make some friends here at TORN!

Best wishes to you all, and nice meeting you! (^_^)/

I honestly have no idea why it took me so long, haha! Tongue Somehow, I suppose it never even crossed my mind that such a great community could exist! But now I know what I've been missing from my life for too long a time, haha! Fellow Tolkien fans to share in the love with! Heart

Thanks a bunch, again, for your kind welcome! I hope to be seeing you around the boards sometime! Smile

Late to the party [In reply to] Can't Post

I wrote on twitter that I was finally joining here and I immeadeatly got response from this community, so I feel very welcome even before making my first post on the forum (this post that is).

@TheMissGreen wrote this lovely reply on twitter: "Its never too late to get to the party. This one lasts a lifetime."

Such a good statement. The love and fandom of Tolkien's work never dies. :) So, I'm here to join even though I've been on this site occationally and I have known about it for more than 8 years.

If anyone went there, I was quite active at the forum of thehobbitblog when that one was running in their early weeks. I loved that vibe. Long before that I runned the biggest LotR club on the only big swedish anime/manga community. Both those experiences was very fulfilling and I hope that I will get the same, or a much better experience by being here and getting in touch with a lot of Tolkien- and Middle Earth fans!

To tell about myself very shortly, I'm currently a 23 yo student of Archaeology. I'm doing my masters and only have my thesis left to do. I'm on a study break this year. I am VERY interested in filmmaking (thanks to the LotR films and extras). I've studied both film history and filmmaking for one semester each - and I can't get enough. I really want to get into filmmaking as much as I want to work with archaeology.

My main way of expressing my passion of litterature or film is usually by creating drawings or paintings of characters and events. I like to be analytical of films, I can seem to be critical and negative, but actually I have it very easy to like films more than not. I just like to know and understand why I like something or why elements come across differently to different people. Those are the reasons why I pick apart films - definetly not because I am negative and lack emotion about the subject. :)

I choose my username "Fimbulfambi" from The History of the Hobbit, where I learnt that this was an early name for Thorin's grandfather (if I am not mistaken). It is of course of a old norse/ icelandic origin.

Hello friends! [In reply to] Can't Post

My name is Bill. Bill the Pony.( But in real life, I am actually just a dorky young girl!) I am a newbie. In fact, this is my first post. I adore writing and drawing. Not much else about me that I want to share.

I apologize for any typos. It is hard to type with hooves.

finally there [In reply to] Can't Post

Hello! I'm 27, from Europe.

I started reading HoME one or two yeas ago - in no chronological order... first I read 1+2 which encouraged me to give the Sil a second chance (it was good idea). I'm currently reading #10 and #3 and the LOTR, that's why I used to linger here a lot unseen in the reading rooms and decided that I might join your company.

So, hello!

What can men do against such reckless hate?

We are discussing LOTR in the Reading Room right now; but in the last two years we have covered Sil, UT and CoH.
