'The Hobbit' Blu-Ray

Pre-Ordered my 'The Hobbit' Blu-Ray from Amazon today.

I've still not seen the film... I know... :thud:

What should I expect (apart from an Extended Version later in the year..)?

Re: Your latest musical discovery

Got an app on my iPhone which tells you what samples (if any) a song has used, or if it's a cover version, etc, and that has led to some awesome finds. 'One Way Glass' by Manfred Mann being one.

Re: The 80s -- Love them or loathe them?

The 80's (UK certainly) take a lot of flak from serious 'Muso' journalists as being creatively dead, and the period is often treated with hostility or derision. The same journalists, or magazine/website then go onto proclaim The Smiths, Joy Division, New Order, The Stone Roses, etc as some of the mo...

I've Been Away...

Sorry guys, but as is the nature of my job, I disappear and reappear without much warning. I always feel like I am letting people down when this happens! Not to worry; I'm back now - give me a week to settle back into RL then I'll be back with a vengeance and redoubling my efforts WRT this site! Han...

Re: Anyone Seen Passo largo around?

Some people dislike change; some people don't like things not going their way; some people are overtaken by RL events.

I am frequently all three of the above, but we all react differently. I'm still here - as are many others.

Re: Hobbit filming will stay in New Zealand

AICN also has a piece on this: http://www.aintitcool.com/node/47217 It’s on – finally. After years of legal wrangling, ‘on-and-off’s, different directors, rumoured actors and possible new locations, it’s come down to what everyone expected (hoped) it would be in the first place: 2 Films, made by Pet...

Re: More Hobbit talk from Martin Freeman

I note with interest that the vanguard of the inevitable ‘Martin Freeman for Bilbo!’ backlash has begun over at Empire.

Re: How language has changed....

Actually, Withy, you just reminded me of a bit in LOTR that made me LOL - it's during the Battle of the Pellenor Fields when Eomer (I think) meets up with Imrahil (?) and they stop and have a really inappropriate chat before carrying on the fight. Not only does it conjure a bizarre mental image, but...

Re: Freeware/shareware

Tom, I can't access the link on my work computer, but can you clear this up for me; if I select an entire image, will it/can it then reduce the resolution and file size down to that of say, a forum Avatar?
