Like moths to a flame: Farewell to Thorin Thursday



A behind-the-scenes screencap I edited from the treasure trove at Heirs of Durin. From the Best Buy bonus doc. Love all these ladies clustered around him. I know they are just doing their job. Still . . . as requested, here’s the original.


Thorin, Thorin, Thorin: Dwarf on the Brain


I finally had three hours of sleep this afternoon/evening, waking abruptly when spouse rubbed my foot to tell me he was home with buffalo chicken pizza. Sounded good, tasted good, but it’s all gone wrong on my stomach somehow.

That’s what I get for staying up all night again, watching The Hobbit, all the video blogs and the featurette promoting beautiful New Zealand. Then in the wee hours of the morning I let the YT clips buffer sl-o-w-ly so I could see another Hobbit documentary, “A Hobbit’s Tale,” with Richard reading through lines, clumping about in those big clunky dwarf boots and showing off his biceps with practice fighting.

Lastly and most endearingly, still in his Thorin makeup, complete with blood-smeared face and flowing locks, Richard and his lovely talking hands spoke to the film’s crew about how much he looked forward to returning to NZ this year. I love him and Thorin, so majestic and fierce and proud and beautiful, more than ever. I’ve got dwarf on the brain. Just in case you haven’t seen “A Hobbit’s Tale” here it is on YT in two parts.

And here’s more fanart. I hope you enjoy!







This one took my breath away. Literally. Thank you, DJ.



I think I’ve got it back now. Wow.  What a beautiful image.

Thank you, Dark Jackal at Heirs of Durin, for sharing wonderful screencaps like this one from the special edition Best Buy Hobbit Blu-ray combo pack. This version features an exclusive 30-minute documentary on the making of the film.

I’ve been working on RL stuff, specifically my part of the Jr. Miss FDA Pageant video, which is a separate video mixing live footage with my edited stills and set to a special edit of that Flo-Rida song, “Sometimes, I Get a Good Feeling.” Benny will add it to the end of the pageant footage.  I did that all by myself–with a little tutelage from the Master, aka Benny, and I am kind of proud of it.  Old girl is still learning new tricks.
