Silmaril The Golden Ring Marathon

The Golden Ring Marathon is an annual event we shall try to initiate on October 20th 2005. That is the 50th anniversary of the publishing of Return of the King.
The number fifty is perfect, as it is not only a number that comes around once in a century, but also the age at which both Bilbo and Frodo began their journeys.
On that day we plan to gather with friends, relations, other LotR freaks...or just in the company of our beloved Fellowship, to watch all three Extended Edition Lord of the Rings Films, one after the other. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

This thread has been posted for suggestions and/or thoughts as to this event. Fill it up and spread the word! The more the merrier! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

Frodo Lives! Revive the slogan!

Ah! So you started the new thread! Well done! I suppose I shall have to put my last comment on the other thread here, too.

Quote:
As to holidays, we also have Easter/Spring Break. Brits get a lot more holiday time than we do, don't they? (I used to go to a British international school where we got about twice as many holidays as we have here in the US). But something around Oct. 20... I suppose all anyone can really hope for is a Teacher In-Service Day, or perhaps Mid-Term (the 20th is about the time for that, isn't it?).
There it is. For those of you who are new to this discussion, we were talking about the complications involved with the fact that the planned date of the marathon is a school- and work-day (a Wednesday, right?).

Well, I'm sure if some of you have kind of nice teachers, they will let you borrow a TV or something, and watch part of the movie during lunch. I know some of the teachers at my school will probably let me do that, although, by then, I'll probably be at Uni, since I graduate in 2005.

Ah, so we finally have a new home... *stretches out and relaxes* Cozy.

I think Oct 20th of 2005 is on a Thursday... dunno though.. could be Friday, but in any case, I'm almost positive it's a weekday. But oh well! This is FAR more important, right? [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

Well, a lot of sites on Google seem to think it's Wednesday, but considering that next year is Leap Year, it seems like it should be a Thursday... who knows.

Right on. I definitely plan on participating. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

Oh, and just a note, it's not "First Annual", its "Inaugeral". Let's get our terms correct please.

Sorry, Sapph. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] I'll have to think about that, not sure that everyone would really know the difference.

Well, you have a point with "inaugural", but I agree that some people might be confused by the term or not know the difference. You see, "inaugural" means by definition "the first" or the one that sets into motion", whereas "first annual" implies that not only is it the first, but it will be repeated every year. So I think that first annual is probably fine as is.

You know, I was thinking maybe we should make it tri-annual instead...because who knows, if this thing carries on for 50 years, we're gonna get sick of watching them over and over and over again...aren't we? [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img] [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img] [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img] [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img]
Tri-annual could be good, cos there's three films...ooh and three Elven Rings...ok that's taking it a bit far.
And I had never heard of inaugral, let alone being able to tell the difference!

Quote:
About those holidays...we certainly don't get all those random days off, and we don't get time off for Thanksgiving...obviously Do we really get that much longer? When do you break up for the summer? We break up at the end of July (23rd or so), unless you go to a private school, in which case I think you break up a couple of weeks earlier.
We have Inset days, which are teachers' training days, so I suppose that's the same as your teacher what-nots.
And that was my reply about holidays!

Well...yes actually...*ducks to avoid flying tomatoes* Impossible as it may seem, twenty years hence we will know these films so well we will be able to recite the scripts! Elvish and all! Ooh, wouldn't it be great if this day was made an international holiday?????!!!!!!!
Ok, so I gather a tri-annual Ringday isn't going down too well...oh well...

Good grief...I only know a few words, and that's annoying enough for my friends as it is!!! Not that you reciting all three extended editions at a word's notice would be annoying in any way... [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]
But I have got as far as attempting to understand the Elvish...not that I'm any good, I can only understand things like 'galad' and 'govannen' !!! (From the Fellowship that is, haven't got the DVD of TTT)

Well, I'm close, and I've got some Elvish engraved on my memory as well. ("Frodo... im Arwen.... tellin lethai... lasto beth nin, tolo dan na ngalad"). But yeah... I was lucky enough to find that written down and memorize it, instead of having to listen really carefully.

I don't think I could ever get tired fo them. I've seen FOTR 14 times and TTT 6 times, and I'm not really tired of those yet. I could watch FOTR EE, in particular, many many times without tiring of it. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] And if I can read the books four times without tiring, than I doubt I'll get tired of the movies, either. Especially not ROTK! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

Yeah, ok, ok!!! Well I find I need to read the books over and over again, because for some reason the details filter out of my brain like they pass through a seive. Oh man, I can't wait for ROTK!

No offense, Elentari, we weren't trying to get after you for saying that or anything, just saying that we wouldn't tire of them. But your opinion is perfectly valid and probably true for some people. No offense taken, I hope? [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

That would only be a problem if the word in question meant "the only". Saying something in "the first" automatically implies that there will be subsequent occurances of the event.

Think of it this way: it will impress the really smart people, and force everyone who doesn't know what it means to use their dictionary.

Hmmm... I thought I did. Here's my post from the last thread:
Quote:
We get a day off for Columbus day, Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday (Feb. I think), about a week and a half off for the winter holidays and New Year's, a little less than a week for Thanksgiving (in November), Labor Day (September), and Memorial Day (May). I think that's all we take off for, but we also celebrate Verterans' Day and Presidents' Day without taking school off.
Followed by Brinniel's post...
Quote:
I get President's Day off. And then I get two weeks off in the winter, one week in the spring, and several other days off spread throughout the year, called Teacher's In Service Day (which means there's a slight chance I might have school off Oct. 20, 2005 and I'll actually be able to participate in the marathon).
There ya go, Elentįri! ^_^

I just had an idea! We should all invite Tolkien newbies (friends you have that haven't seen the EE yet) over to our houses to experience the LotRness with us. And we can serve Lembas as appetizers! ^_^

Hehehe, thanks...and when do you break up for the summer hols, and when do you go back?? (For me, it's around the 23rd July, and go back on the 4th September- this year anyway. Private schools break up a couple of weeks earlier and go back a couple of days before us).

How on earth do you make lembas???

Elentįri, for lots of lembas recipes and ideas, just enter "lembas" into the search function box (click on "search", upper right corner of the page).

By the way, everyone, dates of school holidays are not Tolkien related. If you want to know about them, please use PMs.

IS this Ring MArathon something like a big event where tons of RINGYS gather, or is it just something that you host in your own home?

Just gather in your home, or a fellow addicts (perhaps with a bigger screen [img]smilies/evil.gif[/img]) to do it. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

I would let you all come here, since my Dad has a dedicated home theatre with a 5x8 foot screen (oh yess, lifesize Gollum.) and a sound system that sounds better than any theatre we've ever ben to... but I don't think my parents would appreciate that too much. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

Ingredients:
2 1/2 cups of flour
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
8 Tablespoons cold butter (1 stick)
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2/3 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Honey or maple syrup for dipping

Preheat over to 425 degrees.

Mix flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl.
Add butter and mix with a fork or pastry cutter until mixture looks like fine granules.
Add sugar and cinnamon and mix.
Add milk and vanilla and stir with a fork until dough forms.
(You can add a little bit more milk than the recipe calls for if it gets too hard to stir.)

Roll into balls and place on cookie sheet, mashing them out until they are about 1/2 inch thick and 3 inches across.
Makes about 12 – 14.
Bake for about 12 minutes or until insides aren't gooey.

Wrapped in mallorn leaves they will stay fresh indefinitely. Wrapped in plastic wrap they are good for about a week.
Delicious dipped in honey or syrup.

Firstly, read my signature.
Secondly, does anyone know the conversion from Farenheit (sp?) to Celcius? (For the benefit of us Britons, or wherever else which uses a slightly more logical temperature scale [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] )

So yeah, PM me about your summer hols, someone! I'm interested!

A similiar thing happened to me. Hense the 1 in my name.

Anyway to make up for the off-topicness of this post: here are some themed food ideas:

bill the pony cookies (I have horse cookie cutters)
Broken carrots and dip (you know when Merry lands on the carrot)
Lembas!

any more ideas? you can add on here , since I don't want to take up another thread.

It does sound wonderful, for the Ent-draught. Only...I don't think we have it here in England, so it'll just be you American guys growing a few inches taller [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]
Bill the Pony cookies!!! (As in cookie cookies yes, not biscuit cookies...do you have biscuits?? Ahhh, this language difference thing is fascinating!) Marvellous idea!!!
Sorry, I really can't think of anything else...hmm...
