Yay! [In reply to] Can't Post

I remember the Shed 1 location from when we were in Wellington last January. And I saw the exhibition of costumes and props when they toured the US in 2003-2004. Really awesome stuff. They are just amazing, and deserve to be permanently displayed somewhere!

I wonder how Weta feels [In reply to] Can't Post

to be a cog in Morrison's election publicity machine?

As for the museum itself, I imagine that one designed by Weta would be wicked-cool. I hope it includes the bigature of Minas Tirith - it has so much detail in it that you could look closely at it for ages.

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.

It won't influence my vote in the upcoming mayoral election. [In reply to] Can't Post

I wouldn't vote for "Mystery" Morrison under any circumstances.

I haven't heard a lot about him as a councillor, [In reply to] Can't Post

but from what little I've read, he seems a divisive person on the council - or at least, a more popular cricket commentator than councillor.

Up here we've got three people challenging the sitting Mayor. The personal attacks haven't started yet but I'm sure they're not far away. I really dislike the pre-election period.

Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."

Sauron: "Mine's better."

Would be cool [In reply to] Can't Post

I loved the exhibit (went to see it in Santiago de Compostella in Spain). Could have spend many more hours there. Something permanent would be fun and since a lot of people who are traveling to NZ know about the connection with LOTR/Hobbit, the museum will get enough visitors.

In the spirit of friendship, I offer you [In reply to] Can't Post

this excellent candidate. Michael 'Tubby' Hansen stands for the Mayoralty, Council, and Community Board every year. He has lots of original and exciting ideas!
Here is an example:
He also has lots of helpful hints which citizens can implement to avoid Government produced 'tinglerays' entering their bodies.

Do they know about tin foil hats in Wellington? [In reply to] Can't Post

 


They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters; These see the works of the Lord, and his wonders in the deep.

I'm speechless. [In reply to] Can't Post

And that doesn't happen often.

(To be honest, tinglerays sound like fun!)

Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."

Sauron: "Mine's better."

You would be wise [In reply to] Can't Post

to keep your mouth closed, lest the tinglerays enter that way.

That advertisement is but a taste of what Tubby Hansen will unleash when he becomes ruler of Christchurch!

I certainly hope so [In reply to] Can't Post

But if not, Tubby Hansen is an expert. I'm sure he would provide training for a small fee (and perhaps a jar of Chow Chow thrown in). Cool

Great! :D I was wondering when it would happen! [In reply to] Can't Post

I saw their exhibit when it toured here in the US... and it was mystical and so emotional. I found myself just standing in front of each display and getting lost in them. To know that all of the displays would be out of storage and have a permanent home. This is a very good thing!

Agreed! [In reply to] Can't Post

I was awe struck when it came to London. A permanent museum in New Zealand might finally convince be to book a trip! Sly

I hope we see [In reply to] Can't Post

more hero weapons, being the really flash ones for close ups. The ones on display previously tended to be the stunt ones and some such as Glamdring and Anduril didn't even look as good as the UC replicas I had at the time. I think they had the hero version of Aiglos (or is it Aeglos, I can never rememver how to spell it) and it was huge and very intricate.

Minas Tirith bigature is a must. I remember standing in front of it for ages at Te Papa.
