Thorin Thursday returns: Fun with Photo Editing! *thud*


My schedule has been a bit thrown off this week as far as posting, so no Thorin Therapy for Tuesday. After covering the bar mitzvah last weekend, I had photos to sort through and edit and a play rehearsal to attend;  both Monday and yesterday I delivered some of the items I’ve been selling to pay for Benny’s birthday gift. The Google Nexus 10 has been ordered and should arrive Friday (hooray!).  I hadn’t quite reached my monetary goal but took a leap of faith more funds would be forthcoming. And it’s happening.  😀


In RA-related news—I FINALLY saw the trailer. On the big screen and in 3D at our local cinema last night before “Gravity.”

You know, I am still not certain I love 3D (although it was very effectively used in “Gravity”). But I do love seeing majestic, moody, beautiful Thorin larger than life, the magnificent rumble of that voice filling the theater.  As I said at Serv’s blog, when Thorin spoke, I was nodding in agreement. “You tell ’em, Thorin!” I whispered fiercely. Benny laughed. I didn’t care.


And then I saw the poster image of Thorin today at Servetus’ blog. WOW. That image stuck in my head as I went about my business.  Had a lot to do earlier, but tonight I simply had to play with this image of a fiercely beautiful warrior dwarf. I don’t know if it’s correct to call a dwarf “manly” (should it be “dwarfly” instead?) but manly, he is. And I’d follow him anywhere and everywhere to the ends of (Middle) Earth.   The rest can have Leggy and Thrandy and Bard and Smaug–give me the one and only Thorin Oakenshield!

  1. He looks great staring up from under his brows doesn’t he? Complete with sword and full warrior kit. Love the padded grieves and knuckleduster ring. He can escort me any time!

  2. So glad you got the chance to watch Grativity and see the newer Hobbit Trailer. What did you think of Gravity? Love the new edits also. 🙂

  3. I always think he looks wonderful–but these new edits are amazing, Angie. Totally worth waiting for. Hope Benny loves his gift, whatever it is.
