Have fun on the forums!
(Psst! Watch your back, Lady Greenleaf, that's all I'm at liberty to say here... I fear old GB is not one of the more trustworthy forumers! And he's a bit of a meddling trouble maker too, though I hope I'm not talking out of school here.... )
That's a load of kahoojawatil!

I will never forget that
Ok...guys...please don't fight here!
Some of that has been revealed in this thread.
I don't think anyone on the Internet can escape the relentless crawl of 4chan, for better or worse. Luckily we seem to be avoiding the less savoury aspects of 4chan culture so far.

, your avatar makes me laugh every time I see it. And hey! Some 4chan stuff is pretty good, if not used too much .
People yelling "LOLFAILFAILFAILFAILFAIL" can get quite obnoxious .
I'm glad you like it. It's my favourite out of all the kitty ones I've tried out so far, so I'll probably keep it for a while.

Definitely. I wonder how long till someone decides to rickroll with a fake Hobbit trailer.
Well, I have been rofl-stomped over the Internet, so I would not doubt the possibility of a wedgie, especially in the hands of the mastermind that is [b:13rk93fr]GB[/b:13rk93fr].
I fell in love with LOTR right before the first movie came out and from there I proceeded to read the History of Middle-earth series. This stuff is just so well done. Im a big history guy so that maybe why I love this series so much, since he did write it like history.
Just hit me up if you want to know more about me or anything!

Nope! Well, maybe Odo, but not I. I like directors to be creative as well, and there are many ways for them to be, even if they keep in mind that they're not making an original movie and should thus tell the existing story, albeit modified for the new medium.
I don't mind people disagreeing with me, though I do enjoy a good debate.
The answer to your question is twofold. It's my dirty little secret that I've actually only read [i:12xmxawi]TLotR[/i:12xmxawi] cover-to-cover once , though I've read the whole thing in bits and pieces many times sense. I tend to have difficulty re-reading long books in general, for some reason. I've read [i:12xmxawi]The Hobbit[/i:12xmxawi] and [i:12xmxawi]The Silmarillion[/i:12xmxawi] many times each though, as well as most of the anthologies of [i:12xmxawi]Unfinished Tales[/i:12xmxawi] and [i:12xmxawi]The History of Middle-earth[/i:12xmxawi]. Perhaps most importantly, I have discussed much and read more on various Tolkien forums over the years. In doing so it is driven home to me that there is still a lot that I don't, though.
P.S. It's great to see you posting in so many threads right off the bat. I hope you enjoy your time here.
Unfortunately I have not read [i:nq3f609x]The History of The Hobbit[/i:nq3f609x]. I would like to get it but I haven't seen it in bookstores and haven't bothered to check for it on Amazon yet. At this point I have a fairly long reading list of non-Middle-earth related things to read that I probably won't get around to it for a while yet, but it would be nice to have the opportunity to read it.
Fair Warning to Mum though, this forum's policies aren't super-restrictive (2 rules--Be Nice and No Spam). And post content and subject matter can vary from Teen to Mature, but we try to keep the language fairly clean here .
We are able to occasionally have serious discussions though, if you can believe it. Most importantly, everything remains in good fun, even Odo.
Henry is right to be concerned about my tummy Jane . Fortunately I only eat like that on occasion, so I am merely pleasantly Hobbit shaped .
