  1. I think the posts are starting to contravene Phantasm66's post about "Not posting rubbish".
    I feel partly to blame (with the revival of the "Songs that stick in your head" thread).

    I was born, educated (depends on who you ask ;) ), got a job

    Thats my life history. I suggest that we have slightly more meaningful posts in the future!

    I amar prestar aen. The world is changed.
    han mathon ne nen. I feel it in the waters.
    han mathon ne chae. I feel it in the earth.
    a han noston ned gwilith. I smell it in the air.
    Much that once was is lost. For none now live who remember it.

    The words 'The Lord of the Rings' appears in gold lettering on the screen, the screen fades back to black, then a fire comes onto the screen. A pair of tongs are seen pouring a heated liquid into a mould.

    It began with the forging of the great rings.

    (Three elf hands are seen, each wearing one of the elven rings, which each have jewels on them. We see the elves looking at the rings on their fingers.)
    3 rings to the elves, immortal, wisest and fairest of all beings.

    7 to the dwarf lords, great miners and craftsmen of the mountain halls.
    (We see the dwarves take their rings)

    And 9. 9 rings were gifted to the race of men, who above all else desire power.
    (The men are seen with thier rings)

    For within these rings was bound the strength and will to govern each race. But they were all of them deceived.
    (We see a map of Middle Earth, which blackens, as the screen blacks out.)

    For another ring was made.
    (Map is shown again, this time showing Mordor).

    In the land of Mordor, in the fires of Mount Doom, the dark lord Sauron forged in secret a master ring to control all others.
    (We see Mt Doom, a volcano, spitting out lava from the top. We see Sauron's face, wearing a golden mask. Then we see a more distant shot of Sauron, this time holding something up in his hand).

    And into this ring he poured his cruelty, his malice, and his will to dominate all life.
    (Fire blots out his image, and in the fire we see round, gold ring. We see a close shot of Sauron, with the ring on his hand. The camera zooms in on the ring, which has fiery elvish letters on it.)

    One ring to rule them all.
    (Once again, we see a map of Middle Earth. A dark cloud originating from Mordor spreads to the rest of Middle Earth).

    One by one, free lands in Middle Earth fell to the power of the ring.
    (The map blends into a village in Middle Earth, where people are running away from orcs, who are brandishing axes, and burning down houses)

    But there were some who resisted.
    (We see an army of men marching, then a long shot of the battle field, where there are thousands of men, elves, and orcs in battle, marching towards each other. The camera moves up to show Mt Doom)

    A last alliance of Men and Elves marched against the armies of Mordor. On the slopes of Mount Doom, they fought for the freedom of Middle Earth.

    We see an orc snarling, then a line of archers shooting arrows. Once again, we see a long shot of the battle field, with orcs falling off cliff tops as they are shot. There are tens of thousands on the battle field.

    We see an army of elves and men, commanded by Elrond, who shouts a battle cry

    Elrond:
    Tangado a chadad
    (Translation: Establish to hurling)
    (The Elves/Men have their sheilds drawn, and as the orcs charge towards them, they draw their swords and fight them. They slaughter many orcs)

    Victory was near. But the power of the ring could not be undone.

    (Sauron appears, and with him, a hazy cloud. We see a close up shot of his hand, which is wearing the golden ring. The fiery letters are very clear. Sauron swings his sword, and the men and elves against him are flung outwards, yelling in pain. The king charges forward, trying to kill Sauron. Sauron slashes at him, flinging him to the ground. His sword falls. Isildur, his son, runs to his side, and takes off his helmet)

    Isildur:
    Father...
    It was in this moment, when all hope had faded, that Isildur, son of the king, took up his father's sword.

    As he grabs at the sword, Sauron steps on it, breaking it. But Isildur still has a hold on its hilt, and slashes at Sauron's hand, cutting off the finger which wears the ring. The finger, still with the ring on it, falls to the ground, as Sauron falls backwards. Isildur sits up and leans over the ring, as Sauron is destroyed in a light that seems to come from his body. A bright light comes from him, and a cloud spreads over the battlefield, killing all the orcs and Sauron's allies. Sauron's mask/helmet falls to the ground, smoke coming out of it.

    Sauron, the enemy of the free people of Middle Earth, was defeated.
    (Isildur, amazed, picks up Sauron's finger, with the ring on it)

    The ring passed to Isildur, who had this one chance to destroy evil forever.
    (We see the ring in Isildur's hand, and as he holds it, the finger of Sauron turns to powder)

    But the hearts of men are easily corrupted, and the ring of power has a will of its own....


    ....Believe it or not, I've been kicking around since then. Dark, immortal. Timeless. Limitless. Bored.

    I think you are being a little hard on yourself. I don't see the moronic nature of a "what's a great song!" thread but when we are descending into discussing how tall we all are, I think we need to turn those computers off and go do something else... What's next, we all start to post the size of another certain piece of anatomy?? ;)
