I think her idea was that she wanted it for a birthday present to sit down and unwrap in expectation and perhaps some sense of discovery as she slid it into the player and pressed PLAY. It's got nothing to do with release dates on IMDB.


 Ahhh.   My bad.

There was a 'Lost' reality tv show

And there was Kate, Doc, Sawyer, Hurley, Jin and Sun, Sayid, etc.

I was aware of the first, and likely confused it with the second.  Did not watch the first, I was working back then.  The ONLY thing I tried to keep up with was Star Trek: Enterprise and Voyager and DS9 back in those days around the turn of the millennia.    Turn of the Millennia.  What a phrase!  The creaking of a gigantic rusty hinged gate swinging around comes to mind with it.

I just don't care for non-science fiction and non-fantasy dramas much at all.   Most of the science type shows are ok.  Some of the history stuff is ok.  Some movies are ok.   See I'm easy to keep happy!

I would not have been interested in MANY actors long at all if I had not seen them in some sort of Sci-Fi/Fantasy show.   I got where I hated comedy shows.  Too when Jim Carey started out, I liked him.   Jeff Foxworthy, same.  Just life changes made changes in me, my thinking, my tastes.  Happens to lots of folks. 
I LIKE Sci-Fi/Fantasy so much because it takes me way way away from the problems of Life for a while.   Its also what I like about my "Art".    But, walk away from the computers and TV, and I am mostly fresh and clear for a while, at least.   Heck I might even smile a time or two!   ;o)

Is anyone still interested in Tauriel like likenesses?

It's a fine character set, great textures.  Even if you don't think it looks enough like "HER"...

LOST was absolutely not a reality tv show. It was a drama and it was very good really...until the end. They sort of flubbed the end, imo. Oh, that's right - you don't like whatshisname, the producer. Really, it was a very complex story and if you weren't watching it all along it didn't make much sense, because you didn't really know what was going on.


SMAUG is the most awesome thing in that movie!!! Spinning into the heavens covered in gold! Splendid!!!
Yes I loved Lost series, and love again! Even the end.
But I never understand how Kate could prefer Jake to Sawyer, specially with all bad aspects he has shown :panic:

The whole set of the Hobbit movies, ending with Desolation of Smaug and Battle of the Five Armies, were so visually rich and beautiful!   Smaug was so well done it was hard to hate him.   I was sad when the Black Arrow found its mark and he died.   Pity the Dragons and Humanoids couldn't find a way to get along in peace like they did in Eragon.
Smaug can't be a good dragon, no one dragon can be good in Middle Earth. It's exposed in The Silmarillon what is their origin.

I think her idea was that she wanted it for a birthday present to sit down and unwrap in expectation and perhaps some sense of discovery as she slid it into the player and pressed PLAY. It's got nothing to do with release dates on IMDB.
:psycho: No problem with that, a spoiler of Hobbit movies without images can't give enough idea!

Good morning guys!
It's storm Eleonore here from the night. I cross fingers to keep the power here, because already 200 000 houses are without electricity in France. Even cats are very quiet but worry, and were ready to run under furnitures in the little morning.

Does somebody notice that "Giveaway of the Day" block in the left bottom of forum is 'empty'? (I see the name of block, but the block itself doesn't appear :hypno: ).

Why Jack indeed, Kate? One of the great unsolved mysteries of the show. Lol.

Good morning. Stay warm and drive carefully.

I still feel like something that starts with 's'. Woke up with a fever again. I've had this for a month now. It was just apparently hibernating for a week or two there.

I don't think it's going away any time soon. I wish it would though!!!!!!!!!!

Grandma's advice would be "stay as warm as you can stand, drink a pint of hot milk with plenty of honey and a slug of rum, get a good book and snuggle in bed under a wool blanket till morning". Grandpa (more practical) would rather recommend "see a doctor, and if you don't like what he says see another one".

Whatever you decide to do take good care of yourself, stay away from the Nurse and come back ASAP in full health! :smile:

Good Morning to all..... 

Had to get the drive and steps cleaned off due to a dusting of snow....

But my my my....they are calling that storm on the heading towards the East Coast a "Bomb Cyclone".  I've been chatting with my Brother on his plans and he said he and Carol will be heading to Newport to be with Mom...so all is good on that part.

Stay safe all of our East Coast friends.....this storm seems to have EVERYTHING.  :thud:

Aelin...I believe the ticker is not ticking on the free giveaway section.

Other then that...another freezing day here.   Been getting the judges all ready for their first judging of the year.  Most are back from the Holidays but they are playing catch up on real life.....but...... we should have results back by later today or early tomorrow.

Ray....That's a long time to feel so crappy.  I hope whatever it is goes away my friend.  I hate getting sick for one day let alone one month  :thud:

Any snow or ice there yet Fafnir?   Just turned the weather channel on so I can keep up with what's happening in our attic friends areas and Moms area and the Daughter and Grands in Maine....

But gotta grab a :java: and see what else is going on....be back in a bit.
