THE HOBBIT NEWSFLASH: and Thank you Musa for the heads up..
The Hobbit director, Peter Jackson's, latest video blog...RA as Thorin is omnipresent, thank you:)
Past Post from April - much discussion about TV series Camelot at that time..also the laughing baby video..enjoy revisiting that now and then..
explanation of above scene - the dwarves are escaping after being spun into cocoons by giant spiders..
---The forest is dark and terrible...After many days, they are near the end of their food and they leave the path, against Gandalf's advice, when they see lights in the trees. Giant spiders capture them but Bilbo escapes and helps his friends escape. He reveals to them the secret of the ring and they get away from the spiders.
Thorin is missing. He was captured by wood-elves. Soon, the rest of the group, except for Bilbo, is captured also.
[Perhaps Westeros is not all that far from Middle Earth ;) Afterall, they're both fantasylands...]
Following is funny - the blogger asked for suggestions of places for the 'occupy' crowd to do their liberally hypocritical thing...someone suggested Westeros with hilarious comments that help put things in perspective..
[R: brief note on the 'occupy' organizers - they are urban limousine liberals who recently complained, to police in NYC, that the authentic homeless were consuming too much of the organizers organic food supplies. I reiterate - they're flaming hypocrits]
Suggestion Excerpt - Westeros:
If the Occupy movement would be about perfecting a society that’s in decent shape in Nellyville, Occupy Westeros would be a somewhat more urgent proposition. After all, in this shattered kingdom, the 1 percent don’t just control most of Westeros’ wealth: they can rape and murder members of the 99 percent with impunity. There would be logistical challenges, too. In Westeros, when they say winter is coming, they don’t just mean you’re going to have to keep taking snow-soaked sleeping bags to the laundromat to dry them out until April. But holdfasts are easier to defend than public parks. As are giant walls made of ice. And nothing brings the 99 percent together faster than hordes of ice zombies.
RA's former RH co-star, Lucy Griffiths, will play a regular role in HBO's vampire drama 'True Blood'
