It's rare here. People barely acknowledge rock.

at elast it is music...
im not sure how people still qualify rap as anything but beatbox+poetry...and that is a stretch most of the time

I would watch this movie. It'd probably be better than what's in the theaters.

Are we seriously going to worry about spoilers for a story that was first published in 1937? I find it hard to believe that anyone, especially on this forum, doesn't already know the story. Either by reading the books or by watching the LotR movies.

I mean, really now. We all know that Snape kills Gandalf and Bilbo ends up defeating Arthas and marrying Hermione.

Spoilers from teh book, no.
Discussing parts of the movie which only came out a month* ago, yeah - at leats imo (since its been split into 3 and untill you watch it you can't be absolutely sure where it splits, several places I thought we had reached the end of the movie).

Now speaking of movies, it just dawned on me what I was waiting for to see, for some reason I mixed in the Eragon movie and the village on teh water scenes from that with the story and was expecting to see that since I knew I had seen it.

<.<

I must confess to not knowing anything about the movie/story beyond what was in the LotR movies - mainly being that Bilbo stole a ring from Gollum and has been holding it all these years.

How/why he got the ring, I seriously don't know (I tried on three separate attempts to read the book, and decided it'd be a lot more entertaining and a lot less painful to die the death of a thousand cuts - long as the cuts were made by blades of grass. I found Tolkien to be a prosy old bore.)

Yeah, he did that a lot. It was worth it to me tho, and the Silmarillon, while a bit complicated to read, didn't have that problem since he had to stick around six thousand years of history in a small book.

I lend my gf a favorite book of mine, she asks if I want to borrow her Marvel originals.
I'm in love.

I prefer Tolkien's poetry to his prose. The Trees of Kortirion is one of my favorite poems ever.

Tolkein is a surprisingly good poet. Both the stuff within his books and standalone poems published separately. I've always loved Cat


I've always been a huge fan of both LotR and the Hobbit, heck I used to read them annually when I was younger, but I never did manage to finish the Silmarillion, though I tried several times. It reads more like a textbook than a novel.

My brother in law was captured in an ambush fighting drug smugglers in the amazon rainforest. Aware that killing an air force officer was a bad idea, they just shot his leg and threw him in the middle of nowhere. He was found 30 hours later and will be fine. Can't say the same of the smugglers though: The air force, federal police and its support forces invaded the camp, razed it and killed everyone.

Update: He's high on morphine and talking his ass out.

You know... after having been on morphine myself now, I have no idea what people are on about in regards to babbling nonsensically while having morphine in their system. I know it's an opiate, but I was completely and utterly lucid while on it. Maybe it's a dosage thing?

Must be, I've been on morphine, Vicodin, and Oxycontin on various occasions. My brain felt a bit sluggish and foggy, but I was fully aware of my surroundings and don't recall babbling at all.

I have returned from leave! And not to put a downer into the thread, but my Papa passed away 17 Dec. Family is doing about as well as can be expected and my Grandma is currently out of the woods (at least until she no longer has 24 hr monitoring...)

All I can say is that I'm glad I was home for it instead of trying to scramble to figure out how to get to his funeral.

my baby was born Jan 10 (due date Dec 31) via C section at 9 pounds 8 ounces.

My wife's uterus is weird, a vaginal delivery would never have worked. The doctor was mad at himself for not seeing this problem and suggesting we induce.

My girlfriend doesn't get high on morphine either. Some people are just resistant to that, and he isn't.

Gratz! It's going to be pretty scary journey as Shoju stated me in Successes thread. Boy or girl? :) Hope you have easy one that sleeps more than 30min naps in day and 2h in the night for first three months :D

she's a girl and was 22 inches. Everyone is home and happy. She's a fat little thing. She sleeps well. We're lucky that she's soothable. She sleeps best when someone is holding her, so at least one of us can get sleep at a time. At about 5 or 6 in the morning she goes down for the count. Its now noon and she's beginning to stir.

From what I gather, I just went through the longest 9 months of my life, and the next 2 years are going to be the quickest.

Sorry to hear that. Would you consider other options? My wife is a post partum nurse. She has told me that once upon a time she would not have considered adoption, but after holding other newborns, she told me that she could see herself loving another's child as her own.

<shrug> Only if her life expectancy is expected to improve a few years, not a big perspective. And she's lost her previous kids in a car accident already. I don't think she can take it right now.

Just so we're all clear here, I'm pretty sure "snake posting in the relationships thread" is actually a carefully documented thesis on just how hard you can troll people before they finally stop believing you.
