    Oh well. At least it's not Andrew Lloyd Webber. [​IMG]

    One ...
    ... single ring of power.
    Taints men every chance it gets.
    {dee dee dee dee dee dee dee}

    One ...
    ... kindly little hobbit.
    Running from Sauron's pets.
    {dee dee dee dee dee}

    One wraith and suddenly all of his fears come true.

    You know that ring will corrupt him like you .. know .. who ..

    One ...

    So when do we get to see Legolas' nude rendition of Silmarillion: The Musical?

    For those not in the know, read The Very Secret Diaries.

    Does Gandalf's "pointy hat trick" go against HTF regulations? [​IMG]

    Cripes! How long do they plan on making this?

    They could barely cover the high points.

    "Springtime for Sauron and Mo-ordor..."

    I am having trouble imagining a scenario in which this won't suck... [​IMG]

    Now if they made a musical of the Harvard Lampoon's classic parody "Bored of the Rings"... THAT could work!

    This looks more like it should be a "Simpsons" parody than a real production, a la "Planet of the Apes-- The Musical."

    I hate every ape I see, from chimpan-A to chimpan-Z...

    John,

    I figured this production would try to take advantage of more than one recent Oscar film.

    Consider the part where Sam describes a critical scene from Return of the King...

    Oh yes, oh yes, oh yes they both
    Oh yes, they both
    Oh yes, they both reached for
    The ring, the ring, the ring, the ring,
    Oh yes, they both reached for the ring
    for the ring.

    This is the singlest GREATEST idea I have ever heard!

    I am already planning to fly to London for the premiere, first class, all the way [​IMG]

    It seems silly (because it is), but so was making the film. Just another medium for the tale.

    And no, I probably won't catch it [​IMG]

    Take care,
    Chuck

    OK, I gotta get in on this...

    This next number works best if you mispronounce the subject... [​IMG]

    The only time I ever heard RINGS put to music well was in a Led Zeppelin song, like RAMBLE ON or MISTY MOUNTAIN HOP, although that one has little to do with RINGS.
