Thorin Thursday: Thorinmania Fully Underway!

Standard

The IMAX poster. Do you think they were going for sexy here?

Isn’t he though?

The weight of his burden is visible in Thorin’s eyes.

I love being able to see Thorin’s wonderful costume in detail here.

FYI: Turns out the old computer had a broken wire in the adapter so Benny ordered a replacement. Won’t be able to retrieve a lot of stuff until we get it. I’ve been through two adapters with that laptop and I honestly can’t recommend Toshiba computers. TVs, yes–but not laptops. Seems difficulties with the electric adapters  is a common problem with that brand. *sigh* Let’s hope this HP holds up better.

I am proud of the new unit. At long last I have keys where half the letters/symbols aren’t worn off, a key isn’t missing and the left click button actually works (although I prefer an optical mouse, anyway). I do give my computers a workout!

Since I don’t have access yet to a lot of my stuff, things may look a bit different at the blog over the next couple of days, but you will be getting regular posts.

  1. Congrats on the new computer! At least your stuff is retrievable once you get the adapter. Both my daughter and I have had trouble with Toshiba adapter cords and plugs. The only worse brand seems to be Dell; I was ready to bury Thorin’s ax in one of those.

    My heavens, I think IMAX was going for sexy. They have obviously heard the expression “hot dwarf” and they know what it means. Love your artwork.

    • IMAX definitely knows the meaning of smoulder, don’t they?

      Yep, it will take a little longer but at least I know the stuff is retrievable from the old computer. I told Benny, no more Toshiba computers for me. I have had two give me grief and that’s enough!!

  2. I see you have the Thorin IMAX poster, but didn’t see any info on the offer. They are being given out free to folks who make the first showing at 12:01. Here’s a link to the participating theaters:

    Here is the link to see all the posters you will get. I have to admit it send me straight to Movietickets.com to buy mine…and here I was going to pass on ever going to a midnight showing again. LOL

    • Oh, cool, I didn’t have any of that info, just the image from RANet. (and sorry, the comment went to spam due to the links, I suppose). Thanks! The things we will do to get our hands on hot dwarfs . . . 😉

  3. That is discouraging – I just got one 😦 At least it’s the external adapter and not the internal portion-I have a now unusable Dell with that issue.

    • I wish you the best of luck with yours. Maybe you got the GOOD one. I have been through quite a few laptops–because I used one so much as part of my work, and now with the blogging and vidding and artwork–well, I do put the poor things through their paces.
