Hey peoples! Somewhere on pg. 1 you were debating between 1st annual & Inaugural. I think it would be cool if we could try to make this an annual convention, too! In more than just my own US, of course! I don't know, I thought that it would be the coolest thing to have a convention. It would probably be implausible, though. Anyway, I LOVE the idea and will definetly be participating!! (Yay freshman year of college!)

I also would love to see it become a yearly celebration, but am not sure how *official* we could make that, as it may not be as easy to organise something of that magnitude in each country across the world.

I am thinking of talking to some of the people at the theatre where I work, when the time comes. And perhaps we could use one, or more of the screens for it, but Arizona is pretty far from most of you I imagine... *hmmm..*

If PJ could hear about it and agree that it's a good idea, I think it would be easier to persuade cinemas and stuff...because maybe New Line would do some marketing or something? I suspect the cinemas would take that a lot more seriously than a bunch of freaks like us... [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]

I'm sure that some of the cast & crew from LotR MUST read the barrowdowns. How could they not?

Wow... I finally understand what the advert in people's sigs means... I never new there was a thread. I'll have to bar my doors against my friends and make them pay to see the extended editions at my house. I'm the only one who's gonna own all three EEs! The others all own atleast one non-EE LotR, and I'm pretty sure they won't re-buy it for the EE... unless they are truly LotR freaks! Wait... that would be a good thing!

Elentari I, LotR Freak Extrodinaire, and a bad speller.

Elentari, I hope you know what you are doing, they require constant supervision (even though they are supposed to be supervising you) otherwise you'll never eat bacon again. Celebrimbror and I (yes, he was baring his teeth again, I actually ended uo writing 'They go to not run...' in an exam because of him, I also wrote 'And the Lady of the Lake, her arm clad in purest shimmering samite held aloft excalibur from the water, signifying that, by Divine Provenance, I, Athur was to be King. THAT is why I am your King!' when asked to define Divine Right *snort*) are currently trying to get a Mini-abyss for him.

Anyway, Back on Topic. I'm sure we'll find some way of publisising this. I'lll ring up my local radio station (91 ZM) nearer the date, and I'll put a note in the 'Paper. Most likely sometime next year.

Morgul Queen: that's so good an idea! I could try doing something like that too. So what are the main points one should know about Marathon (thinking about the adds we could make)?

Not very many points...basically get your friends around or something and watch the EEs on 20th October 2005...and then every year after that.

(I have my Balrog, he is called Bombur...I've been trying to tame him...at first he would go into a huff if you didn't say hello to him, or if you did he'd burn things up (like my geography coursework...oops). But now he only burns things up if you don't say hello...
But I must say, he does consume rather a lot of food for a mini-Balrog...)

Don't worry about Bombur, He'll calm down after you feed him for a bit...wait, you are feeding him RAW eggs, aren't you? Cooked ones make them cranky. Fangirls help too. *MQ attempts to grab a few fangirls off of Celebrimbror who then attempts to bite her hands off - see, people, action - reaction - but she grabs some anyway*

Here have some, fangiiiiiiiiiiiirls!!! *MQ runs as Celebrmbror chases her around the computer room*

Greetings to one and all.

I arrive here after meeting Morgul Queen at TOR.net party for return of the ringers this evening.

I am very excited to hear of the planned celebrations for the coming 50th anniversary of the publishing of The Return of the King, and am looking forward to assisting in anyway possible.

Perhaps I should start telling more people about this now - It'll help with the planning, and the Valar know we need some help with THAT, We're run dry already. Maybe the ZM Morning Crew will have some ideas, and I'll post the link to here on some of my yahoo!groups.

The Morgul Queen,
who recently got back from the RotK premiere and is bouncing over her sweet as photos, autographs and her RotR T-shirt. Do the Wave people!!! *waves*

Who: Basically all the Ringer friends you have
Where: At your house or whatever, unless by some stroke of amazing fortune we are able to get this at the cinema...
What: Watch the EEs back-to-back!
How we will organise it: I don't know, on this thread?

Most likely, we'll have to organize it here. I don't think that many of us can meet in RL, and actually plan it. This would be the easiest way.

Wow! This has turned into such a huge deal, I can hardly believe it! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

Thanks so much, Morgul Queen, and everyone else who's been working so hard to get the word out! I saw the article on TORn, and could hardly believe it. We're official!

Oh, and remember earlier, when we were discussing different ideas to make ent draught? I have an idea. Seeing that Tolkien described ent draught as just being water with a "savour" or different taste to it, I came up with this:

ENT DRAUGHT

~1 can white cranberry juice concentrate
~Water
~Sprite, or some similar lemon-lime soda

Prepare cranberry juice as directed on can. Add one extra can of water (this is based on preference; if you want it more watered down or more potent, change the amount of extra water added). Add half a cup of Sprite. Stir, and refrigerate. This is a less, ah, volatile version of the drink; you won't grow unless you drink it all in one go. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

The ENT DRAUGHT idea sounds great, I will have to try making some of this up.

My basic idea was to see how many people would be interested in coming to Wellington NZ in Oct 2005 to help celebrate?

Welcome to the 'Downs, middleearthguy! Enjoy being dead. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

So if this does get turned into a big-deal, authentic LotR promotion, do you think we here on the thread will get free tickets, as we were the ones who started it? Just wondering...

Hey, Sapphire, that's a good idea! We would all have to prove that we were on this thread, though. But we could issue official badges or something and get in free! Maybe. If it turns into a really big event, such as sanctioned by PJ, showing in theaters, possibly with TORN involved and conventions and so forth, then we could all get in free (and be famous! Everyone start writing your speeches). But so far, it's free for all of us, since it'll be at our houses. Unless you count the cost of the DVDs and food, but that doesn't really count, does it? We'll all have the DVDs by them anyway (most likely).

I haven't really contributed much yet...I feel kind of bad, because I think this is an awesome idea and I really want to help! What can I do?

Oh, I was thinking that we could make t-shirts advertising for it. That would be pretty cool. (Yay fabric paint!)

Hey, yeah! Kewl idea, Laitoste! We should have *official* t-shirts or something. What kind of design do you think would work? Or maybe different ones depending on your "alligence": black/silver for Gondor, green/white for Rohan, black/red for Mordor, blue or green/silver for the Elves, green/yellow for the Shire... Anyone else have any ideas?

We should start a committee or something. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

Hmm... perhaps one of us should try to come up with T-shirts or something, and then scan a photo of them. I really wish I could do that, but I don't seem to have enough time to do ANYTHING now, what with evil, tricksy midterms approaching, and my 79.6 in calculus.

I was thinking, have something LOTR related on the front, then GOLDEN RING MARATHON, OCTOBER 20 2005 on the back. What to put on the front though...

My allegiance is to Rohan, or Rivendell, most definitely. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

Anyway, I finally got to see TTT EE. I LOVED IT!!! (major understatemant, I know, but still...)

Maybe a picture of The One Ring running (yes, the ring would have legs and red trainers) and below it the slogan: Golden Ring Marathon etc. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

Hmm... that is actually an interesting idea. We could change the color of the running One Ring's T-shirt based on the allegiance of the buyer. You could probably choose between dark blue (Elves), black (Gondor), green/white (Rohan), red (Sauron), and brown (Shire).

Wonderful ideas people!

I hope you don't mind but I'm going to E-mail Weta the stuff from this thread...with our nicks, of course, so they know who to assign tickets to, eh?!

BTB (By the By) I have tickets to RotK....at the Embassy. I'm going on the 23rd, yay me!

But now I have a dilemma...will my T-Shirt be Black, or Red? Hmmm...

I would go for the black one.

I't would be so cool if Weta got interested in this Golden Ring Marathon thing!

I've got tickets for the 17th! Go me! I think I'd take a dark blue one, because even though I love hobbitses, I like blue better than brown.

So is Weta seriously interested? Becasue I know you say that Richard Taylor seemed interested, but do you think he'll tell PJ and all of that? I'm looking forward to getting my free ticket. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

Now, what else could we do, in the meanwhile? Perhaps someone could advertise it at their school, if the school has a newspaper or a bulletin board or something?

I think WETA would probably be seriously interested in this. Just read some of the ideas that some people have had on this thread. They are rather excellent marketing devices (i.e. running One Ring T-shirts, matching memorabilia, etc.). If they used our ideas (and gave credit to us of course! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] ) they could probably make a LOT of money.

Sorry if this is totally random, but I don't have time to read over this whole thread.
Thing is, it would be possible for me to get one independant cinema to participate for definate, another independant that would think about it, and the UGC who I can talk to. And as the UGC is a chain, it'd go over the whole country.
This might be totally not what you had in mind, but am willing to go meet with them if it's at all useful.

Lossentilien, that would be great, as far as I'm concerned. At this point we seem to want any publicity we can get, until we have our feet firmly on the ground and a solid foundation of support beneath them.

Is there any way of contacting the main Cinemark company? Nearly every city in the US has a Cinemark theater, and if either we or WETA manage to reach the main company, who, in turn tell all their theaters, it would save us a LOT of trouble.

Big cinemas will be harder to convince unless you happen to have a contact directly- or through someone else. If you want to contact a major cinema but don't know anyone there it would be best to write up a proposal saying what the idea is and why it'd be great for the cinema to run.
But if WETA did agree they'd have a lot more influence over it.
I'll find out a bit more for y'all and post it when I can.

I have a friend who just started working at Hoyts, so I could ask her to get me an interview with her Boss. If we got them that would secure us in New Zealand and Australia. I'll try the Embassy too, if I can.

I have a friend who has a cousin who works at one of the cinemas in my area, so I might run the idea past my friend, to pass on to his cousin. I think it's worth a shot.


I think if we all search for people we know who work at the movies or in places affiliated with cinemas, we might be able to get our ideas across.

I could doodle a pic of a running One Ring in my spare time, heck, I've finished college for the year, I have all the time I need. Have to find a scanner though, and when I do, I'll send you lot the premiere pics, 'K? [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

BTW, if you're allied to Morgoth, what color T-shirt do you get? Urple?

Oh, and everyone, meet Eridor. He's just arrived. Say 'Hi!' Eridor! *Eridor cracks whip and snarls* That's my Mini *huggles Eridor...and Celebrimbror too, don't want him to feel leftout*

We have One Ring Doodle, he's vewy cuute.

Now I need a scanner.

Manwe help me, this is starting to sound like something out of Monty Python; Morgul, Dizzy, and the Quest for the One Scanner; Watch Morgul Queen and Dizzy Brunette as they run around Wellington trying to find someone who actually has a Scanner. But first they must survive such perils as; lack of caffeine, no internet time, AND the upcoming distraction of Christmas!!

Wait, scratch Python, this is Sheep in the Big City!! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]
