One Ring to Rule Them All!

One Ring

Lord of the Rings was one of the first movies that I ever remember analyzing. I never read the books, so I couldn’t over analyze it like I could with Harry Potter, but it was the first movie that I ever watched the special features of. Most movies I had watched the bloopers or deleted scenes, but never the interviews of featurettes. I became obsessed with featurettes after this movie. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve watched the featurettes of these movies. Enough to quote 70% of the interviews. After watching the featurettes,I would go back and watch the movie again and see what things I could pick out about how it was filmed or how the battles were choreographed. This initiated my adoration of special features.

In addition to that, Fellowship of the Ring was also one of the first and only movies I actually remember seeing multiple times. My friends and I would go the the discount theater in the mid afternoon and literally watch that movie until they closed (at least twice a weekend for 2 months). I can quote that movie from beginning to end adding the commentary my friends and I did (which we thought was HILARIOUS at the time, but probably just made the other patrons mad) without missing a beat.

Introducing… The 12 Days of Geekmas!

Introducing… The 12 Days of Geekmas!

It is now officially after Thanksgiving which means I can finally start talking about Christmas without getting funny looks.

I love the winter holidays. No matter what you celebrate, I think that the winter holidays are perfect times for ice skating, walking through the snow in gloves and boots and driving around town looking at Christmas lights. The holidays have always been my favorite time of year because it’s like everything in my world has a little bit of sparkle to it, and I just want that sparkle to grow.

Would You Like a Little Con with Your Photo Ops? [Salt Lake Comic Con 2015]

Last week I talked about how excited I was to go to Salt Lake Comic Con this year. I had an ABSOLUTE blast. This year they seemed to be a bit more organized that I had heard about in the past, and I was actually really glad that the volunteers seemed to be able to answer questions more thoroughly than they had in the past. I didn’t get to nearly as many panels as I wanted to. I was standing in lines (for photo ops, autographs and the occasional panel) for about 70% of the time I was there.

I really should have written about this each day, but I was so tired by the end of each day I didn’t think I could get my fingers to move like that. I apologize for the lengthy-ness of this post.
