Gentle Giants ~ =^.^= & LoTR Japanese Fanart? [Jan. 4th, 2004|12:07 am]

Went on another doggie transport today with my neighbor - this time to Maumee, Ohio.
We picked up the cool "Blackjack" who is a Black (with patches of white) Great Dane.

Gawd - those dogs are like the sweetest things on the planet, from all accounts of meeting the half dozen I've met thru these transports~ As in every group, clique (can point to fandom, work, Non Profits... I swear it always appears) there are always people that are wacko & spoil everyone's fun. Before my interest in Japanese culture, I was really into activism for animal rights. Don't get me wrong, I'm still actively vegan, into animal rights - but a lot of people just tired me out & annoyed the shit out of me.. that's why I adore my neighbor-she doesn't
{ No - I didn't belong to PETA or Earthfirst, and I never committed any criminal act =p} It seemed there were always meltdowns of sorts between members in any given group. It would start out great - then someone would get some selfish agenda, and become deranged and make life miserable. Thank goodness ~ It appears the Canadian rescue groups are much more sane. I am mostly 'along for the ride' with my neighbor who does all the 'heavy lifting' per se, but so many people have just turned nasty on her after she's done the world for them.

Big big Hugs & thanks to the wonderful buttercookies who processed my gift of Hydeist membership for Ayumi. I missed her IM today..but she was so ecstatic! And I will have to find out her Hydeist name so you can chat with her diluendo she is a dear.

I'd like to make a request ~ My friend runs this GREAT LoTR/Sean Astin site:
http://www.sean-astin.net/ Has an Illus page ^_^ http://www.samwisegamgee.net/samart.samwisegamgee.net/lorraine.htm Please check out Lorraine's work - it is great! Lorraine's page http://www.lorrainebrevig.com/ MY request.. Any Japanese Illus pages of LoTR? Or any of you have illustrations???

^_^ More converts! I thought I met her through a post on Liv's board, but now I can't remember. She is totally fluent so *laugh* sometimes I bug her for help..

I'm suddenly pleased - I was looking at Go's site (which I don't regularly visit- but I find his commentary interesting & I like the looks of his site) ^_^ Hyde got a really glowing review!!!!!!!!!
yay!!!!! Yes, I am a dork. *and sniffle* Leigh & I were driving along & I was playing 666. I heard Leigh HUMMING!!!!! yes, yes! Humming along. Leigh likes Laruku /Hyde much more now since he's joined choir. He has a more academic interest.

Do you have a link to the review? I'd love to see what other people thought of it...

First humming, then the world. ^_~

The "hyde" review was just a review of Hyde as an artist - and not of a particular album.. Perhaps I'm too sleepy at present, but ^^;; I can't seem to find it at present.

Thanks for the link - I looked around, but didn't see a specific review either.
