A thousand red roses would not be enough
To thank the dear sorter of our rhodent stuff.

And a huge priceless jewel magnificent
Would always be less precious than the hours she's spent.

Even a towering monument, with her name engraved
Could never begin to make up
For all the times she's pressed "Save".

Perfume, palaces, rare champagne - no - take them all away -
Nice gifts though they are they're just not right - they
don't quite capture what we *need* to say...

Now there's no difference between the two brothers.

OK, it's nearly a year to the ROTK movie, but I think it's time to place some bets as to what they'll change next time. Some of the following is just general Hollywood adaptationism, while some is projected based on the first two movies (i.e. "if they changed X, they'll later change Y for consistency").

[This might have more spoilers for people who haven't read ROTK. I don't think that matters but I've heard people complain about plot revelations for the TT movie that were just discussions of the book.]

  • Wedding of Aragorn and Arwen: One or two paragraphs in the book, 15-20 minutes on screen, possibly more.
  • Tower of Cirith Ungol: Possible Frodo nude scene?
  • One or more "Frodo's dead!" story arcs, either after meeting Shelob (if that makes the cut) or just before the battle of the Morannon when his mithril coat is produced without him.
  • Encounter at Isengard, breaking Saruman's staff, retrieval of Palantir, didn't make it into the TT movie and probably won't appear at all.
  • Dunharrow? What Dunharrow? It was written out in TTT, and will probably stay out in ROTK. Not a major location, except...
  • Paths of the dead (start near Dunharrow): Would be easy to cut it out in the interest of time, and send Aragorn directly to Minas Tirith. Except that the army of the dead would make for some cool special effects. Hard to call; maybe Aragorn will call on the dead, but then still go right on to Minas Tirith without mucking about in the south?
  • Battle of Minas Tirith: Scene at least on par with the TT movies' scene at Helm's Deep.
  • Theoden's death scene may well rival Boromir's for drama and length.
  • Saruman in the Shire: Also easy to cut in the interest of time, so good odds on Saruman meeting his doom in some other way.
  • Elrond et. al. seem to be already heading for the Grey Havens in the TT movie; therefore they probably won't make it to the wedding.

In general, chess players are dull and without humor - look at me. I actually find some chess openings _funny_, but I need to lurk in this group to have something to say when people socialize and talk about humor. Although socializing, being a chess player, is not a strong point.

> Anyone remember the Leisure Suit Larry Games? Man they were fun when I was 10 and felt so sneaky after I got through the age of majority test. Is the new game package true to the originals?

Yeah, I remember. Actually, I finished LSL5 + 6 last week for about the 15th time.

I also remember playing LSL1 13 years ago at the age of 8. I'm Swiss, so the english parser was not really intuitive for me that time. But what a triumph it was, as I finally managed to buy a striped, nopped, peppermint-flavored "lubber" in that grocery store!

These games were real fun. To bad that the time of graphic adventures is over...

In that case you may have to wait a few months for a full report.
