quest for a thousand. [Feb. 15th, 2004|07:43 pm]

[noise |only wanna be with you.- hootie and the blowfish]

i'm gonna do this cuz i thought it was hilarious. i found it on some random person's LJ from one of the comments on my bsb icon. anywhoo... here goes.. i'll just copy and paste her directions:
(original date of post: 11/29/04)

I want this entry to reach 1,000 comments. Yes, one thousand.

Post anything you can think of. Tell me what you had for breakfast. Tell me what song you're listening to. Tell me about something that really pissed you off today. Tell me dirty secrets about yourself. Tell me anything. Hey, you can even have a random conversation with yourself or others. I don't care!

There isn't a certain date or a certain time that I want this to reach 1,000 comments by. I just want it to reach it. That is my goal. Just because. Be cool and link this in one of your entries!

Yeah, and I'm not going to make one single comment. Cheating isn't fun.

Don't let me down! You know you want to! =D

Ready? Go.



aight.. i'm gonna change something. i can't help but comment.. so.. i WILL. *grins*

oh definitely. Those movies never cease to make me cry. RotK still does, even though I've seen it quite a few times now.

Oh, yes, I spend most of ROTK crying..... it's all so sad! And in Into The West, when Annie lennox sings 'Don't say we have come now to the end'.... because it is the end of LOTR! *bawls*

that's so true! :D have you noticed we have about three threads going here? hehe
I love that song. I bought the soundtrack just for that one and Billy Boyd's song.

Hey, our threads are making all the difference to the whole 1000 comment thing - I think we should be proud!
I bought the soundtrack because I love the music, but also because I am an obsessive LOTR fan, and collect as much as I can!
I love Aragorn's song as well, but then that also makes me cry, because I remember the 'you bow to no-one' bit... *sniffs*

I hope we get close to it at least, I mean 1000 comments is a lot. The only ones above 1000 I've seen are on the posts to all LJ users. But oh well. We shan't give up hope! Here we go!
Oh yes, I bought it cause I'm obsessive too, and because it had Merry and Pippin on the cover. :) I'm excited for the extended edition too, because I want the cool Minas Tirith thingy. lol

yes, we are in dire need of more picspams. I think a lot of us will be crying. It'll be so bittersweet - the DVDs will be beyond compare but it's over...

especially in the context of Lord of the Rings... oh well. It's not going anywhere soon. The movies will be around long after we're gone. ;)

And I still cry, you know? It's one of those things where even though you've seen it so many times it can still cause the tears to come... *sigh* I'm tearing just thinking about it! But the first time was the worst. definitely.

well.. without gollum frodo and sam would've never found mount doom... so he DID serve his purpose.. that and his biting off of frodo's finger caused the hobbit to WANT to destroy the ring when he was hesitating.. so yup.

oh yes, he did have his purpose. Of course, the movies had the Hollywood factor where Frodo fell too and stuff, but it's the same idea. Gollum was there for a reason, just like Frodo was meant to have the Ring. That kind of sounded like Gandalf. lol

lmfaooo. awww gandie. so full of words of wisdom.

"So do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us. There are other forces at work, Frodo, than the will of evil. Bilbo was meant to find the ring. In which case you also were meant to have it, and that is an encouraging thought."


*cries*
