I went to a festival of folk music this summer and there was a little shop where you could buy jewelry and special clothes and things, and it was called "Gandalf". That was cool. Problem was, I promised my friends who were with me not to talk about Tolkien and LOTR whatsoever, but when I saw the shop I was all exited about it. They really didn't like it...

Guys, I have met a hobbit!!!
Well, okay not a real hobbit, but close enough.
K, some people know how I spent my summer...
Okay, it was at band camp for those who didn't know.
My theory instructor was 4,8 and the smallest guy I have ever seen(that wasn't a midget or a dwarf) Thing was that he was all prepotioned so he looked normal. He was hilarious, he could never sit still or stop talking, he was always eating or drinking something(so hobbitesk) only problem was that he was indeed very small, not chunky like normal hobbits.

He had a kid too, she was adorable.

My school is going LOTR crazy, and it is driving me crazy [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img] (I don't know why, it just does). The Library has gone all LOTRified. There is someone in my school that created a paper mache Gollum, that is currently on display, holding a little ring, and kneeling over a pile of books. I first saw him a couple days ago. I was walking down the hall, looked in the window, and said to myself "Gollum, it's Gollum! what?".
Additionally they also have the posters that say things like "Reading: Make it a hobbit" with the pictures of the charaters from the movie. I know it is a library, and about every library has LOTR. But this is a lot of LOTR in one, and it is kind of strange.

I was at band camp too! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] But I didn't see any hobbitish theory instructors.

When I was looking for avatar pictures, I did an image search for "Goldberry." Besides the pictures of Tolkien's Goldberry, there was a picture of two big black cows. I read the article and it turned out that the cow was named Goldberry, and it was the mother of a cow named Galadriel. Interesting... [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img]

I was in my computer class yesterday, and the place we were in the textbook was talking about wearable computers. It had an example of such things, and I noticed that the company of whatever that makes them was called MIThril! Go figure.

Cool Goldberry, dare I say it,
"One time at Band Camp..."
My hobbit, to whom everyone called the "L.T."
would bounce around when he conducted. It was really quite hilarious.
Did I mention that we played an arrangment of the FOTR soundtrack, and it was his favorited song. It ended up being one of our best songs because of his enthusiasm(or maybe cause he was a hobbit)

Annalaliath, Led Zeppelin was (is?) highly influenced by LOTR. Many of their songs has words/names from Tolkien's work or at least references. *Disclaimer* Any references and behind the songs meaning I got off the Internet at Led Zeppelin sites.
A few examples...
'Ramble On' -Has the phrase you mentioned, it is supposed to be about Frodo's journey.

'Misty Mountain Hop' -Most obvious is the name Misty Mountain. One can take it as a boy's experience with drugs and hippies but it is said to be Bibo's story. Bilbo is the boy, Gandalf is the policeman and the dwarves are his friends that "would all drop by".

'Battle of Evermore' -Supposed to be about the Battle of Pelennor Fields. One of the more direct references to LOTR. With the lines "the drums will shake the castle walls,
the Ringwraiths ride in black..."

The biggest controversy is 'Stairway to Heaven'. Although I do agree that for the most part this song is not about LOTR, it still has its influences.
"There's a feeling I get when I look
to the West.
And my spirit is crying for leaving.
In my thoughts I have seen rings of smoke
through the trees.
And the voices of those who stand
looking."

The elves who leave Middle-Earth and go West.
The smoke rings remind me of Gandalf. It is also said that the picture in the middle of the cd cover (#4) is Gandalf looking over the Shire. Anyway, it's fun to look at the words of their songs and think.

At this point I don't have the websites, when I do I'll come back and link them.

I went to the Minnesota Renassance festival, and they it had a shop called 'The Lord of the Rings!' It was a ring shop, of course. Naturally I had to buy somthing there, in support of them. When I saw it, I started jumping up and down, pulling on my friend's arm and squeaking. As soon as she saw it, she understood, she's just as big as a freak as I am. The whole festival is straight out of Gondor, they sell chainmail, swords, walking sticks...I can't wait for next year [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img]

In archaeology lecture we were looking at settlements. In Mesopotamia there was a Late Uruk Period. Cue me thinking of Uruk-Hai running around building mud huts and hunting lodges for the rest of the day.

Actually I heard this song in music class a few weeks ago. A guy had brought some music he liked to tell us about it yadda yadda. Anyways, when I heard just exactly that part I thought 'ooh, that's great, a bit like elves and fairytales and stuff' but than I thought 'nah, can't be lotr, probably just a coincindende that I was in that mood when I heard it...' and now you tell me that it is actually inspired! So cool!

Gandalf Airlines: It's the only way to 'fly you fools' [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] I think I stole that line from someone else.. I read it in some other discussion some time ago, just had to write it [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img] I discovered Gandalf Airlines all by myself though. It's an Italian airline company, I think. When I was in Paris, on my way home, we were on the RER towards Charles DeGaulle airport and there were noticed in the train about which part of the airport you should get off the train if you were going with that or that airline. Me and mum were looking for SAS, trying to find out where we were supposed to go, and we saw "Gandalf Airlines terminal 2" or something like that. It kept us amused for quite some time..

When I was in Paris a couple of years ago, I remember that I saw this random peddler on the side of the road, selling Rings of Power. Mind you, these were classy Rings, not the cheap dollar-store Rings, so me and my friend (who had also read LotR) took one look at each other and ran off at top speed. To this day, I still maintain that Annatar tried to give me one of the Rings of Power.

I was looking at a road map and just found out that there's a town nearby called Buckland [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] That made me sooooo happy. I was telling my friends we should go visit Merry.

I went to a Renaisannce Faire today and there was a shop called "The Lord of the Rings" that sold chain-mail clothing. It was pretty cool, but really expensive. Too expensive for me.

I wore my *unfinished* Elven dress to the Faire, and saw two other elves there, with pointy ears! It was so cool! I was sad...I don't have pointy ears yet... [img]smilies/frown.gif[/img]

You may not want to know, but I'll tell anyway [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

Most people connect NZ with sheep (excepting a few who connect us with LotR first) so in giftshops is always a bit concerned with Chocolate covered raisins which they label sheep poo (or Dags, in the more rural areas).

Its kind of funny because you think of all these tourists buying this stuff to show off to their families while we stand there giggling. one good thing about GS's - Certain stuff is really cheap, like paua jewellery.

I'm an NZer too (live in Uk, though.) You get lots of strange shops here, aswell - I mean, Mozart hot chocolate? *worried*
I saw 'goldberry hair acsessories' the other day. They were...well, old fashioned isn't the right word. Traditional? Wooden beads and things; very nice, if your hair (unlike mine) is long enough to tie up without looking like a ridiculous version of Jim Hawkins [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]
I've also been to a brilliant Celtic shop in Scotland which had replica swords *longing sigh*

I recently went on a retreat with my youth group and the basis of it was "Bored of the Rings", which they had people dress up as characters and walk around Pittsburgh reinacting parts of the movie and videotaped it. It was the funniest thing I've seen in some time.

I've been meaning to post on this thread for a while and keep putting off... so here it is.

Ok, I've seen LotR in two TV commericals lately. The first one was for Verizon Wireless. They showed the battle of Helm's Deep - mainly the part where the uruk's try to breech the gate. The commerical went on the say something about winning a trip to New Zealand and it mentioned the TTT Dvd. The final shot was of the Verizon guy on the other side of the gate (holding it closed) and saying "Can you hear me now? Good!" Yeah... that was a bit weird...

The other commerical was for a car (can't remember the type). These two kids (a boy and a girl) were sitting in the back of a car watching TTT on the built in TV. The girl sighed as Legolas came on screen and was 'swept away' into fantasy-Legolas land. You then hear the brother go "eh hem" and unpause the movie. LOL, it was funny. (BTW they were adverstising that if you bought TTT DVD you could save $500 on the car).

And lastly My brother saw some LotR things at a haunted house a while ago. I asked him to elaborate but he wouldn't. I just can't picture LOTR in a haunted house...

A big haunted house thing that is near here was advertised in the paper as having a 'Lord of the Rings Middle Earth Swamp'. I don' know what's in it.

I finally got my school annual today, from last year and I laughed out loud when I opened the pages for the first time. By every page number was a little thumbnail photo of some close LOTR character from TTT, only they had been digitally edited with the faces of the staff. At first I thought they were in costumes but someone pointed out they weren't. They're so well done that you can't tell they're fake. Needless to say I loved the yearbook.

With Viggo getting so popular, it's just so unbecoming to see the name "Aragorn" all over the style magazines. His face is just everywhere, which isn't a bad thing, but altogether, it's just weird.

Ok this isn't exactly Lord of the Rings, actually it's the weirdest place I've seen Barrow Downs. I was watching my fave show Smallville and they were in this girl's room who was supposedly sick. I chance to look on the wall and above her dresser was the picture that Evisse the Blue uses as her avatar! Really freaked me out. [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img]

Hahaha! I don't know how many of you watch the Simpsons but there was a new episode on last night. They went to england. How does this relate? They're walking down a street when they meet none other than Sir Ian Mckellen. He's doing some MacBeth play, they keep saying MacBeth and he gets electricuted. I heard him spout out some LOTR lines too. I couldn't be sure if it was the real voice, but it was very similar.

Yeah, it was his real voice. I saw the credits.

This isn't really "weird," really, but... You know what bugs me? *rant time*

I was flipping through my friend's Elle Girl magazine, and got...rather angry. They had a bit about upcoming movies and such, and of course RotK was there. And you know what their review was?

That makes me sick. [img]smilies/mad.gif[/img] I'm angry at that magazine right now, don't mind me. Mindless prissy girly...*grumble grumble*

When that's all you have to review off, you have to expect magazines like that to give those kind of reviews. If you want good ROTK reviews, I wouldn't look any farther than this site...and the Victoria newspaper.
