New line has an official Hobbit movie blog. I was doubtful that it was actually from New Line when I first saw it because of the overall general suckiness of the site. But after checking whois I discovered that it actually is New Line.

Ugh. I guess the budget is pretty low at the moment.

With one entry total and none for more than three months I can see why you would be skeptical.

Hmmm.... New Line... general overall suckiness... seems a natural connection []

I've a good mind to sign up and ask in their chat forum, 'Will The Hobbit actually have anything to do with JRR's Hobbit or will it just be some sort of totally unrelated adaptation of the book pretty much like LotR was?!' []

I bet one of the first replies will be, 'JRR who?!' []
Closely followed by, 'You mean PJ didn't write LotR?!' []

Heh heh. Seriously. Although, the movies are just bad enough that I can see someone thinking PJ wrote them and not Tolkien. []

Sadly, pop cultire of the 2nd decade of this century has more and more young folk believing that The Hobbit is PJ's story.

Mind, now that it is many years later, if one was to ask your average man in the street about Lotr, would he think of PJ or Tolkien?
Posted by Snöwdog (Citizen # 15) on :
...or the average woman...

The theory is from Roman artistry.

A flaw in a piece of pottery or a sculpture would be masked/covered with a combination of HOT WAX and ROCK DUST, making them of a cheaper quality.
A true piece of work might be stamped on the bottom ‘sine cera’ or SINE (without) CERA (wax) showing its true quality (‘without wax’).

And thus today we sign our communications 'SINCERELY' (“my words are true”).
