I wish someone would start a LOTR thread or two in Cafe Society

Why doesn’t anyone want to discuss this movie to death? Why I bet the forum could support 9-10 threads on Lord of the Rings and various Two Towers trivialities easy. No fair using the search function either. Just start that thread right up- 3 or 4 threads on the same general topic will just encourage a diversity of opinion.

Remember no point is too small or inane not to be incessantly debated. The wackier the theory the better.

Come on people, I am waiting!

:rolleyes:

Oh wait,

And that was just the first page of Cafe Society. This and the “Ask the _____” type threads seem to be taking up 75% of the hamster’s time as of late.

Enough already, I am begging you.

Is that where everyone is? I thought the action was kinda slow in the Pit today. I don’t want to read any of the LOTR threads, because I haven’t seen it yet, and I don’t want to see any spoilers.

Pot. Kettle. Black.

And then there’s this one from earlier today.

I do not think that means what you think that means.

I see… THREE WORDS!!!

[Sea Captain] Yarr, I don’t know what I’m doing! [/Sea Captain]

Still only three threads- hardly enough discussion on why. . .
wait- I cannot tell a lie, I just missed that thread. :frowning:

What’s LOTR?

A new MTV show?

Pot. Kettle. Black.: phrase - used to notify someone that they are engaging in the exact same behavior that they are ranting against.

elf6c seems to be upset* that there is a huge number of threads on the same subject, namely LOTR.

There is now an increasing number of threads on a different subject - namely that there are too many LOTR threads.

Seems to fit to me.

[sub]*I use the term “upset” loosely. I’m not saying elf6c is right or wrong, or unjustified in feeling so - just so you don’t misunderstand me. While I’m at it, how the hell am I supposed to say your name, elf6c? Elf-Six-Cee, Elf Sexy, Elfsicksy…?[/sub]

No problem Munch- I just missed the prior thread on this or I would have just bumped it.

I would guess it is “EEE” “EL” “EFF” “Six” “Sea”, but your guesses are better then mine by far. Given the season- “Elf Sexy” seems the most appropriate. :wink:

I tried to express this nicely in a completely mundane and pointless LOTR thread in the Cafe and they thought I was being a jerk :(.

The movie just opened last week. In another week or so, I suspect the volume of posts will die way down.

Ummm . . . who? I sure don’t see anyone saying anything of the sort in that thread.

Ah, sorry Munch my universal translator seemed to have been malfunctioning. I thought you were railing on elf6c merely because he was complaining about too many LOTR threads when I had done so a few days previously. I thought “I don’t understand, that’s not hypocritical at all.”
Anyway, it’s all clear now.

LOTR is the bomb. It’s all that and a bag of potato chips. That’s why we talk about it so much. If you don’t like it, then start some non-lord of the rings threads there.
