A few months back I tried to reread it, in preparation for the first movie later this year. Though I read LOTR several times in my teens, I hadn't read The Hobbit since I was maybe 11 years old. I really loved it back then. I hate it now. It came as quite a shock, really, since it was The Hobbit, LOTR and the Chronicles of Narnia that started me off in my enjoyment of reading. What was I thinking?  Grin angel

Go to your profile on the tab up top, click on the notifications and email link on the left, then set it to send nothing or to not subscribe to threads, or I think you can manually delete particular threads if you don't want them anymore.

The movies or the books? I haven't read the books in years, but I loved the movies (I own both the regular and extended cut editions). I will probably buy the book(s) and try LOTR again eventually.

The books.

I do love the story, but I admit Tolkein was very wordy. I guess that's what happens when you begin by making languages and then building the setting around them, heh. It's like making a map of a fictional galaxy and then building a space opera to accommodate it, not that I've... ever done that, or anything...heh. *runs*

Last time I read LOTR I enjoyed it, but like I said that was a while ago. I think my enjoyment of LOTR is similar to my enjoyment of Skyrim... it's not that it's the best story or the best characters or anything like that, but it just seems like a cool world.

LOL at the galaxy/story thing. Ever write fan fiction and submit it somewhere? I've thought about trying DS9 or other fanfic, though I don't know if anyone still talks about that stuff.

I love the characters. Sam and Frodo have one of the most classic friendships in literature imo, homoerotic subtext or none.

Probably going to be accused of being a pagan by some really hyperdox person here, but are any of you ladies and gentlemen into lucid dreaming? I only recently got into the practice and I have to say, I find it quite intriguing.

Lucid dreaming is just a cognitive trick, not much else. If I wanted to, I could start doing it within a month as most people could.

Really, I enjoy dreamless sleep the best.

That is much more difficult sleep to achieve than any other. And for years on end now it is what I primarily have.

Fly, have all sexual fantasies you wish to engage, whatever, you will get bored with it eventually.

One thing to watch out for: sleep paralysis. It is quite frightening the first few times it happens, especially if it lasts more than a few minutes.

It is certainly correlative in the research and within nearly every text or tradition where "lucid" dreaming is practiced.

My first bought with sleep paralysis was insane. Probably lasted a few minutes (10 at the most), but it seemed like forever, literally.

The similar dreamlike sense of time among other things can carry over to the "waking" state.

Memory Eternal! hugs asteriktos we meet people for a reason, whatever has happened love and friendship shared is the music that endures beyond time because forgiveness is granted even without asking by the traveler into the eternity because that is the place one finds one's humanity. we are beings of love, and when one's time comes to see reality as it is, what they see is the Supreme reign of Love even beyond our human words can express or our present mind can conceive. there we see how much we are created with the capacity to Love and Love perfectly! even now here, we see that it is the core of what we are, what we long for, what we want to become, what we long to embrace the truth that is Love, the Life that is Love. depending on how illumined we are, we can sense our exile from that which our heart seems to know yet we can not grasp with reason. but all those that have reposed  know it at once that they are children of Love and not one ounce of love shared is wasted in that world, it all counts for everything, it is the most cherished treasure they take with them, it is the Jewell that adorns their souls, the love of a mother to her children the wife to her husband , a friend to her friend, etc, it is not for nothing. so what is time in the grand scheme of things, love triumphs even over time, forgiveness given, forgiveness asked even in eternity they have a place because of Love.

God be with you and your family my brother.

That would perhaps make sense, except some of the towns are supposed to be built on the same location, or close to the location, of towns from previous games (and one town has been present in all three games)...but the maps do not, in any way, reflect this.

Also, the maps change substantially in each game, to the point where it cannot possibly be the same land that is being shown.

Thanks Smiley Fwiw, I'm not bummed, it's just...   I dunno, anyway Smiley   I'm just sitting here doing research and watching baseball, typical evening for the most part... oh, and checking oc.net every 10 minutes!

kool Smiley

So I never for the life of me get whats so interesting about baseball ! I mean its even scary with those bats and men  squatting over to catch a ball that can pass for a canon ball, dude even with all those gears that's asking for trouble, then they run roll on a dirt whatever, but hey to each his own  Tongue Grin

Poetry! The way you capture the mystery of the game by calling it "dirt whatever," the way you critique the way the game has changed by calling the equipment "gears," the way you accurately describe how many catchers are pudgier by saying they "[squat] over"... pure poetry!  Grin   Cheesy

To be honest I only half watch the games...

On a summer afternoon, watching the game or listening to it on the radio can have a pleasant hypnotic effect. That's aside from whatever the teams are actually doing.  Smiley

How come in a nightmare you always wake up right before your death? Likewise, how does the brain stimulate such great and accurate pleasures? For example, I had a lucid dream the other night where I was flying over the Himalayas and I truly felt like I was soaring through the air; it felt very similar to a rollercoaster. But I've noticed that when it comes to lucid dreaming, if you rush into something too drastic early on, you tend to wake up and screw it up. You have to start slow.

So none of my friends want to go with me to an 8 hour Nolan Batman marathon on the 19th. Would it be super lame to go by myself?
Just do it already :p

My parents think it's pretty pathetic, but I think I'll go for it. All my friends are nerdy shut-ins but why should that stop me from going out?

This is not always true. I've died many times in dreams. I wouldn't necessarily call all of them nightmares.

This is just folk tale.
