“anybody seen this? its at the indiana state museum now thru jan 3. im going to go see this probably the 12th or 19th of november. anybody wanna join me?”
Do you have any idea where they are going next?
I LOVE LOTR!”
“back to london, i think. im pretty sure this is the last u.s. stop”
“or new zealand. just not here”
“there is a touring symphony doing the music to it in major cities”
“Do you know how far in advance you have to purchase tickets?
I see that the tickets are timed....
Will talk to Thinkbubelz and some other friends-- it might be fun to go on Nov. 12th!”
“I'm dragging my ass over to Indi to see this with a buddy of mine. Can't wait!”
“whats so special about it? I mean the movies were OK, certainly better then the books, but not anything to write home about.

GASP! DOUBLE BLASPHEMEY!!
The witch must be burned!!!”
“Spirit is becoming an effective troll.”
“im probably going the 19th”
“My wife is really into that stuff. She wants to #&%!$ Viggo Mortensen and once asked me if our marriage had a "celebrity clause". She was furious when I said that it did not. So I said, “I’ll give you a celebrity clause if you give me a two Asian chick clause.”
She was not amused. Apparently she felt that my option was much more plausible than hers.”
“hey nigal and or crash...is this covered in the price of admission for the museum or is it extra?...give me a shout out if you don't mind company and i'll tag along”
“It's $14. I'm not sure yet when I'm going.”
“I'm trying to round up some friends for this for either the weekend of dec. 3 or 10th. ;-)
If anyone goes to see this, let us know how you like it!”
“I saw the symphony when it was in atlanta. Pretty neat.”
“im going 11/19 at 1pm if anyone is interested”
“damn, we're swapping places that day...i'm heading up north and you're coming down here...oh well”
“Has anyone gone yet? How is the exhibit?
I'm trying to get a group together for December 10th....”
“hey cb, how was it?”
“it was awesome. lots of really neat interactive displays (i got my face turned into a numenorian statue!)
seeing all the articulate detail close up in person is just amazing. i want to go back one or two more times before its over. defineitely worth the 14 dollar price of admission and then some”
“Were there a lot of people?
We were thinking of going Dec. 10th, but my cousin is graduating from College that day...
I hope we can still get tickets around the holidays!”
“hey Crash Bang!
How long did the exhibit take to go through?
Thinkbubelz & I will be going on the 29th--we are thinking in the afternoon, since it looks like the exhibit is open until the evening...
We want to make sure we have enough time to enjoy all of the aspects of the exhibit...”
“The show was phenomenal. Well worth the drive... and we got to see a little bit of Indianapolis as well... :-)
The only complaint I had was that they did not have any type of "program book" or exhibition DVD for purchase. I am sure that if they had, they would have made a lot of money! (you were not allowed to bring in any cameras, cell phones, sketchpads, video cameras or notebooks! Apparently, they are that paranoid that someone will steal the designs of things....)
We did the little "forced perspective / split screen photo. :-) At only $6 it was a steal! I was surprised that they didn't do a print out of the stone faces as well....
Anyways, it was really cool to see the costumes and props up close and personal. We went back the next day and bought some of the shirts & hoodies for ourselves and family (they were discounted). Thinkbubelz would have bought me a Galadrial ring, but it only came in a size 5... (apparently only made for a very small elf... :-) )”
