The Taco has a few celebrity crushes. The Taco has a crush on Arwen, Galadriel and Gimli(everyone knows he is a she, the beard ain't foolin' me [Wink] ) Janeway makes me fall out... When I was a little younger my heart went out to the lovely Queen-now-Senator Amadala... but that's died down... Still think Princess Leia is a dream-boat, and I used to have a crush on the lead singer of Heart [blush]

Edit: Just want to let everyone know I mean the book for all of the LoTR related stuff, except the bit about Gimli, she was so sexy in the movie... [Wink] ...

--------------------
Alright now, that's the last straw, I'm calling the ass taxidermist to tell him to stop making hats in your size RIGHT NOW.

Now that, that is just sick and wrong!!

I have a minor crush on Aragorn. Not Viggo Mortensen perse, just Aragorn. Had it since I read the trilogy, though I know he belongs to Arwen. Faramir's also hot, though I preferred the book version. I like my guys to have darker hair. [Smile]

As far as celebs go, Sean Bean is hot!!!111!!!1 And he's playing Odysseus in Troy!!

Umm...

Look, I know this is just proof that I am indeed 5 zillion years old and shouldn't be allowed out on my own, but can *anyone* give me a simple explanation of why the film_sorry_movie of Lord Of The Rings is apparently so much more popular than the book?

Am I really the only person left on Planet Earth who thinks that sometimes - just sometimes - translating books into films_sorry_movies is *the* most stupid pointless thing ever in the history of the universe?

Frinstance, "The Passion Of Christ" - what's the matter, people, the Bible just too technical for you? More whimsically, H2G2 - why did you lot ever need a TV version? The radio version was bad enough...

Sorry, I'm frothing at the mouth, aren't I?

Because there's a market for them. Like, duh...

</whipper-snapper>

People are lazy. 1200 page books are too much work to read. I'm kinda weird in this regard. Though I enjoyed all three LOTR flicks I find reading takes less effort. Less numbing on the ass, and when it gets too intense you can just put it down and walk away for a bit.

Thank you X. Sorry, I seem to lose my perspective very easily just lately. You're right, of course, it's about whatever gets the story across. And just because most people these days have a shorter attention span than a gnat is no reason for me to go postal, that's just the way it is...

AFAIK, locally, I was the only person my age who even KNEW about the book before the movies came out. I had read all of the books twice, along with the Silmarillion and some of the unfinished works of Tolkien before the movie rights were ever even sold to New Line. The movies were a nice touch, but to much difference exists between the book and the movie, I mean, What happened to Tom Bombadil??? Or what about the whole bit of Arwen showing up to take Frodo over the ford??? Arwen didn't even show up in the story until AFTER Frodo had woken up, and the whole Coucil of Elrond bit was WAY out of wack! Let me finish ranting, I could write a book about how much I like the book over the movies...

Actually, the radio play came first, then the books, then the (execrable) TV show.

Oh, I said I was hanging up my pedants spurs, didn't I?
Please ignore the above.

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.

Oh OK...
But you *are* correct...
Sorry, in future I promise I will try harder to get my facts right.

Betty's obviously the kinkier of the two - why else would Barney look so cheery all the time? In less formal terms, Betty's more of a goer - anyone can see that. [Wink]

Crushes? Hmmm... Harrison Ford, and Viggo Mortenson, Billy Boyd and Gary Sinise, in no particular order. Don't ask me to explain the Gary Sinise. I can't. I just accept it. [Smile]

I think I'll add Monica Belucci to my list. It was sort of weird to see her in the Passion, as compared to the Matrix series though.

Now that'd be an interesting combination of two movies. I can just imagine Jesus having an interesting conversation with the Architect just after dying.
