Despite the anime handle, I was always a Tolkien fan first and foremost. B) I am just as excited to see these movies as I was to see the now-classic LOTR films. Hope everybody else fells the same way!
Hi Zeonista; welcome! I'm pretty excited to see the movies (if apprehensive about the filmmakers' apparently willingness to change the story). I missed out on the release of the LOTR films, being a bit young to really appreciate them at the time, so I'm trying to make up for it now. :mrgreen: I have it better than some though; I've only been following the developments for about a year now, rather than for closer to three as some have. :lol:
I am always glad to meet eager new fans. I remember a little what it was like to be shiny-new and in love with the trip to Middle-Earth. May you have many years of enjoyment of Tolkien's works, and may they have a positive result on your pursuits both physical, mental, and spiritual!

I also like new fans so I can share/teach the knowledge of Middle-Earth as well. Or at least that's the opinion of my friends who are in my gaming group. :lol:

Um, yeah ... just please remember that this is a discussion forum, not a place for you to "teach" people. :?
Yeah, we're all "Teachers" here :P <img src='/images/smileys/wink.gif' border='0' alt='Wink Smilie' /> :lol: . Welcome to the forum Zeonista :mrgreen: . I'm expecting some lively debates with you 8-) .

Sometimes I wish there was someone who could teach GB the difference between "Purity" and "Liberalism". Now, that kind of teacher would be a good kind of teacher for this forum! And what about Corporal Punishment - that would learn some of his type! (Though GB would probably enjoy being spanked, if I know him at all!)

Odo
I prefer being the Spanker to the Spankee <img src='/images/smileys/wink.gif' border='0' alt='Wink Smilie' /> .

Nah! I reckon you'd like a bit of Yankee Spankee.

Odo
Nobody is getting spanked here, since there is no need for punishment and little need for that sort of pleasure.

On to the discussion!
We do get a bit distracted on this forum. It's good we have a teacher now to keep us concentrating (and presumably a somewhat strict teacher!)

Odo
Sometimes I think this forum should be subtitled "Chat and gossip surrounding the Hobbit [i:18grintx]and LOTR[/i:18grintx] movies [i:18grintx]and Tolkien and whatever else randomly pops into our minds[/i:18grintx]". :mrgreen:
Maybe NEW MEMBERS could be put up the top of the list so it has some chance of being the first one new folk see???

Odo

NB I was about to ask you a question about Astrophysics... but maybe you're right Eldo! :lol:
Hang on , didn't Odo accuse me being of salacious and puerile?
(it's one rule for one etc etc)
I think he was being Sarcastic <img src='/images/smileys/wink.gif' border='0' alt='Wink Smilie' /> .

One minute I'm peurile, the next sarcastic - I thought I was just being funny in a naughty but not vulgar or nasty way....

Btw Old Cat, I did think you got a bit peurile a couple of times back when - but I do see your point. The line between funny-naughty and peurile is quite thin it seems! This is a tricky business! And the step from virtue into hypocrisy is quite a small one. Glad you pointed it out (and I'm not trying to be funny or sarcastic here!)
