Somewhere...

deep in the heart of Pasadena...not 5 miles away...

this is going down.

Am i going?
no way. My sister, friends, family, wallet, etc. would never let me live it down.

Will there be cheezy skits and music?
oh yea. these people are so into this stuff, it's creepy.

Will any famous people be at ORC?
are you kidding? they got all the big names from the movie to come, just so you can pay a couple hundred bucks for a picture with one of them, and listen to their sappy stories on how fun the films were.

Will there be showcases with props, and items from the films?
sure. anything to show off whatever they can.

Will there be geeks at ORC?
heck yes...tons of book and movie freaks dressed as elves hobbits and orcs...even a few Gollums. now that's scary.

Does this look like something only insane obsessive LOTR geeks would attend?
yes.

Whould i ever go to something like this?
no.

Do i wish i was there?

Colleen, I have to say I think this might be my favorite post I have ever read that you have written. :-) I smiled the whole way through it and even laughed a little at the end.

P.S. If I went I would so go as Tom B. Just to show how pissed I was that he was not in the film.

P.S.S. I completed my extended versions of the LOTR Trilogy and my life is finally complete. I was so happy when i finally purchased the extended version of Fellowship that I felt beyond exuberance. Like a kind of celestial joy.
