    The great white north, eh?
    I tried to get him to read the book a couple of years back, but he didn't get all that far. Modern youth fantasy is so much more fast paced and spectacular that Tolkein's long winded ramblings weren't really doing much for him. Well, plus I gave it to him in french, and I don't know how good the translation was.

    Cat fight! [/asshole]



    Okay, now you're just trying to get a rise out of me. It's fucking working. :mad: Unless I'm confused Radagast the Brown shows up for a about a whopping page-and-a-half in Lord of the Rings when Gandalf is on his way to meet with Saruman and his only purpose seemingly is to establish that there are other wizards and they each have a color in their name. And now he's showing up in the Hobbit as the fucking comic relief!? Jesus fucking christ. Honestly!
    Even the animated Return of the King wasn't this much of an outrage. There, I said it!

    No, no.....not the intent :p

    Yep, they take the momentary mention of Radagast suspecting the presence of the Necromancer and turn it into several long scenes. Also, he is covered in bird shit and is high on mushrooms. Derp.

    When you do see it, bring some Xanax for your Tolkien-loving friend!

    When people think it's clever to say that in Lord of the Rings Frodo should have simply ridden an eagle into Mordor and dropped the Ring into the volcano. Did you happen to miss the GIANT FUCKING PTERODACTYLS the Nazgul were riding? Do you think they might have posed a slight problem for that brilliant plan?? What the hell is your problem??? :mad:

    Or the fact the eagles were busy elsewhere at the time. Helping the dwarves protect the north, if I recall correctly?

    Most of them were watching over Arnor, but Gwaihir was available whenever Gandalf summoned him.

    Note: I am not saying that an eagle could have been used, because yeah, the flying Nazgul, the archers, the direct line of Sauron's sight, etc etc.

    For an eagle to work, there'd need to be an awful lot of them.

    The rage over the Ben Affleck casting became way more annoying than the casting itself about 5 minutes after it was announced. The movie's going to be directed by Zack Fucking Snyder so it's going to be a piece of shit anyway.

    I'm actually more bummed about it for Affleck's sake, he finally re-established his career after being seen as a joke for years and now he's doing the same shit that put him on the C list to begin with. Did we learn nothing from Daredevil?

    Man of Steel has a lot of problems (a lot), but it's still the best live action Superman movie made in the last 30 years. The irony is a lot of the stuff people hated, including how he deals with Zod, was pushed by DC editorial. So it's not even a clear cut case Hollywood ruining everything it touches.

    I feel bad for Henry Cavill because he's actually a good pick, at least as Superman.

    They're really forcing things forwards, trying to play catch up since Avengers. But if they hadn't scuttled the JLA movie they were already working on a couple of years ago, and the Flash movie they canceled in favor of Catwoman, AND killed the Wonder Woman movie Joss Whedon was begging them to let him make in 2006, they wouldn't have to.

    I'm currently taking a creative writing class where we focus on short fantasy and sci-fi stories and this girl did not know who Ray Bradbury was.

    I'm sorry just...what?!

    I'm learning how to program in Java in my programming class.

    I want to see how many people know why this is annoying.

    EDIT: To be fair, this is far less infuriating than learning Visual Basic in my FIRST programming class.

    Don'tHaveFacebook,
    Back when cafepress first came online, a friend tried to get a t-shirt made even though he knew that it would probably get rejected for using copyrighted graphics. He took a famous picture of Jesus, and the Java logo, and added the caption "Jesus hates Java".

    Yeah, it was rejected before I could get an t-shirt order processed.

    Jesus really does hate Java.

    People that wear "geeky" clothing/accessories, and have no clue about the source material.

    I get it....it's WAY hip, and cool to wear geeky stuff, and pretend to be a nerd now that it's all swankadocious and mainstream.

    ....C'mon though...

    STOP IT.
