May 21 – 25 is our anniversary. Stop by and say hi!

Man, 15 years... Doesn't seem that long.

It was a calmer year, with even less weirdness than last year. A steady trickle of new citizens has kept things interesting.

The last of the Hobbit films is finally behind us. It seems a million years since we were all cautiously awaiting The Fellowship. I for one am glad the movie era is over. The films are shallow pools, but the books have depths yet to be discovered!

The heirs are 11 and 7 with birthdays coming up during the summer. Might see if my youngest wants to tackle The Hobbit soon. Like his brother, he's a reader advanced beyond his years.

Anyway, thanks to everyone who hangs around and drops by from time to time. Can't wait for some of you to start bringing some 2nd generations by!

Cheers!
WGW

Happy Anniversary Minas Tirith!

Cheers to WGW for putting up with me here for most of the last 15 years!

Thank goodness! May we get back to the literary greatness that is J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle Earth creation and let the banality that was PJ's big-budget movie fan-fics of that world be relegated to the rubbish bin. []

Whoops. Almost missed this thread. I need to be more attentive when down south.

WGW, thanks for keeping this place up and running! [] And thanks to all for coming here to POST. []

A couple months before the release of The Fellowship movie I registered here after many months of lurking because I wanted to join the serious discussions of Tolkien’s works I had quietly enjoyed in the past. It’s been great and I hope we can get back to talking about the REAL THING instead of convoluted renderings by a group of clueless and talentless fools. Wow. That was harsher than I intended. Um. []

Mentioning the end of the movie era brought to mind Thingol's scary post about Farmer Giles of Ham in this thread. []

It is nice to see this place still alive and chugging on many years after it's days of pop culture.

I had also been lurking for many months when I finally joined, about the time of the release of The Return of the King. I missed the first years, but got to be part of some busy years before things slowed down, and still means to hang around and post occasionally.

Thank you for keeping the place going, WGW! It's good to be able to come back here to talk to other Tolkien fans/fanatics []
