How did LotR affect your lives?

Post#1 » Thu Jan 01, 1970 12:00 am

Well, I now have no irl friends, I always spend all my time reading Tolkien, on the internet (PT of course) or studying quenya. I have stopped speaking my mother tongue and I am going to have surgery on my ears to make them more pointy. I threw away all my clothes and am now mostly wearing clothes from the movies and a grey elven cloke, with a brooch that looks like a leaf from Lothlorien. I've started using bow and am learning the techniques used for a sword, so I can fight back if I'm being attacked by orcs or such.
So I guess you could say it changed me a bit, but nothing drastic.

(great topic,Arco) :D
I was born to catch dragons in their dens
And pick flowers
To tell tales and laugh away the morning
To drift and dream like a lazy stream
And walk barefoot across sunshine days.

1. I found them in paperback in a ferry terminal as I was heading to the airport on my way to Spain. I had never heard of them before (this was in 1967) and I only bought, much to my later regret, The Hobbit and FotR.

2. Well they lead me to read them at least fifteen times and to lust after more of the genre of which there was a dirth in the late sixties. My library formed a local Mythopeic Society which helped until the librarian left for a better job. And finally they lead me to P-T and you lot.

3. Tolkien was a genius; I was a romantic; and there are a whole hoaf of like-minded people that I've met here at P-T.

I got introduced to lotr at first when we rented it when it first came out. My mom fell asleep on the couch but i stayed up to awtch it. i loved it. The scenes were beautiful and i loved the fantasy of it. I watched it again at my friends house. But when ttt came out, i failed to watch it when it came out so i started reading the books. Sometime in april, i saw it on ad in one of those movie theaters that show movies that arent in the theaters but not out on video so i had to see it. And finally a couple of days ago, I finally finished rotk. Its gonna be an awsome movie! I cant wait!

They affected me greatly I now have to minature head rugs sellotaped to me feet and go on long journeys every Thursday night. ;) but now some strange bloke from down the road keeps following and asking for the Precious
which is gettin' quite worryin' cause he hissin and gurglin' now.
When history looks down its weird vestigial stump of a nose at us, it'll have a lot of very shitty things to say.
