Watto's Junk Yard / Re: 'The Hobbit' movie

They have the rights to anything in LOTR and the Hobbit. Much of the proposed "extra material" is in the Appendices to LOTR--most of the Arwen subplot in the movies actually came from here. But they can't use the Unfinished Tales or the other books.

Right now I assume they'll just incorporate it back into the Hobbit--e.g., showing what other characters, such as Gandalf, were doing "offscreen"--and fill two movies that way, but I'm really not clear on it yet.

^^ I read the first Hunger Games book. I burned through it in a couple of days and enjoyed it, but didn't love it enough to go back for the other two. *shrug*

Just started this:



The world grows colder with each passing year, the longer winters and ever-deepening snows awaking ancient fears within the Degnan Packstead, fears of invasion by armed and desperate nomads, attack by the witchlike and mysterious Silth, able to kill with their minds alone, and of the Grauken, that desperate time when intellect gives way to buried cannibalistic instinct, when meth feeds upon meth.

For Marika, a young pup of the Packstead, loyal to pack and family, times are dark indeed, for against these foes, the Packstead cannot prevail. But awakening within Marika is a power unmatched in all the world, a legendary power that may not just save her world, but allow her to grasp the stars themselves.

From Glen Cook, author of the Black Company and Dread Empire novels, comes Darkwar, collecting for the first time, the stunning science fantasy epic that originally appeared as Doomstalker, Warlock, and Ceremony.

A while ago somebody asked for your stuff at the bookstore where I work. I wanted to say "I know him on the Internet!" but couldn't figure out how to work it in casually. :P

As a toy line, the vintage line was definitely made to interact with EVERYTHING though.  It was all made with only the play pattern in mind, while modern stuff can be made with just that one specific figure's "purpose" in mind, or the vehicle being designed for just one thing.

Bingo. It reached the pinnacle with AOTC's gimmick figures and sculpts that couldn't even sit down, but a lot of stuff throughout the modern era is pretty one-note.

Vintage was a better toy line. Because I liked to be able to put Chewie in the X-Wing. If you have to ask why I would want to, I wonder if you were ever really a kid.

Picked up from a booth at C5, recommended by both of the guys there.

Twenty years after her death, Catherine Lucille Moore (19111987) remains one of the most influential female fantasy authors of all time. Born in Indianapolis, Indiana, Moore published her first story in Weird Tales  in 1933, where it met with immediate success and earned praise from contemporaries such as H.P. Lovecraft. In a time when female authors were still marginalized and practically unheard of in genre fiction, Catherine hid her gender by publishing under the name C.L. Moore. She proceeded to write high-profile stories for Weird Tales and Astounding  for the next decade, earning particular acclaim for her characters Jirel of Joiry, the first strong female protagonist in the sword and sorcery genre, and daring spaceman Northwest Smith. Moore met science fiction author Henry Kuttner in 1936 when he wrote her a fan letter, mistakenly believing her to be a man, and in 1940 the two were married. Together the couple collaborated on numerous stories and scripts for television shows under their own names and at least 17 pseudonyms, of which Lewis Padgett and Keith Hammond are the most recognized. In 1998 C. L. Moore was inducted into the Science Fiction Hall of Fame.

There will be new deleted scenes, foremost of which being the "lightsaber construction" scene: http://www.theblurayblog.com/2010/08/video-star-wars-blu-ray-return-of-the-jedi-deleted-scene-debut/ I assume that's only the beginning of a longer scene.

Wonder if we will get the sandstorm scene.
