Return to the Lord of the Rings - Part 2

If you’ve missed prior episodes, you can catch them here: 1

We return to find that our fellowship is ready to go but skeptical of the cause…


Gandalf walked in right as Luke was speaking and overheard his concerns

He went on to warn them to beware the seven. Ever since the first fellowship destroyed the original nine Black Riders it had been difficult for Sauron to find replacements. Sure, there were plenty of half dead workers out there for the job but the horse union had already placed a ban on working for Black Riders knowing that they’d just end up dead in some magical river or on a battlefield.

But still there was no health care for all in Middle Earth and so many were quite happy to work on the evil Lords plans just for his health coverage. Due to economic cutbacks and stockholder demands he had to reduce the size to seven though. For this he was also able to recruit the ghosts of the magnificent seven to do his evil fruitless search for the fellowship while he scared everyone else with his big eye. They had their own demons…

With the stage set between good and evil once again; the fellowship’s next moves must be planned out. Next post: The Fellowship Plan.

Damn. Why do stars who die of cancer or in plane crashes get all the attention?

Anne said...

i can't get past the thought that your gandalf guy looks a lot like the guy who runs that wizarding school in scotland.

Roy Scribner said...

Westworld! That was a freaky movie in its day.

Elizabeth said...

Who are those coyboys? The actors look famous, but I can't tell who they are. Anyway, I think I'd like the cowboy movie better than the Lord of the Rings.

Maureen said...

Ah yes, The Magnificent Seven. Hubby loves that movie.

Here's hoping Luke can save the day. Unfortunately Ben can't help him out this time... or CAN he????

VE said...

prefers her fantasy life - Well...there was this Michael Jackson character recently...

anne - They do look similar, don't they?

roy - I'm surprised they haven't remade that one yet.

elizabeth - From left to right: Yul Brunner, Steve McQueen, (I don't know), Charles Bronson, Robert Vaughn, Eli Wallach, James Coburn

maureen - We'll see...even I don't know the plot!

subtorp77 said...

VE, well they did remake 3:10 to Yuma...and great reference to a cool movie!! As only you could do, of course :)

Janna said...

I almost want to go out and buy a box of binder rings just so I can meet Luke Skywalker and Gandalf.

Especially if they come in convenient economy-size boxes of 100.
That would be really convenient.

Megan said...

I have no idea what just happened.

freetheunicorns said...

What? No health care in Middle Earth. The move is off. Unless Gandalf decides to teach me some of his tricks and hook me up with some elvish weed.

PS - I want one of those umbrellas.

Ronda Laveen said...

If those cutbacks continue, pretty soon they'll be fighting the Dark Lord with the 3 Amigos.

Quirkyloon said...

Alas VE, I cannot laugh at MY LOTR. I cannot.

I wish the VEblog had never come to me!

So do all bloggers who live to see such times!

Ha!

ReformingGeek said...

Whoa! Wait. What happened to Hans?

VE said...

subtorp77 - Oddly, I never saw that remake...

VE said...

janna - That might be a mistake. You know how Gandalf like to go through your things and meddle in your affiars...

VE said...

The bad guys are now ready. The stage is ready for adventure. Or ridiculousness...

VE said...

freetheunicorns - That's why everyone wants to go to Middle Earth...the weed isn't illegal.

VE said...

ronda- Ha! Or they can go down to Dumb and Dumber or even down to The Jerk!

VE said...

quirkyloon - It is your duty in these time to laugh despire yourself. Only VE can bring you mockery of truly good stuff...

VE said...

Hans wasn't in this scene...he was needed over at Indiana Jones and the Milking Movie Series

VE, no worries, I couldn't get past the trailer for it...

Starrlight said...

Damn now I have Steve McQueen stuck in my head!

VE said...

perpetual - Kind of makes you wonder when they say it in Church...

VE said...

subtorp77 - I'm kind of out of the western phase. I still like a number of classic ones but I don't watch them all that much anymore.

VE said...

starrlight - Well at least someone knew what song I was talking about

Starrlight said...

I am a walking Bing Commercial, the music version. Useless trivia taking using up brain cells that could be helping me remember where I put my keys ;)

VE said...

starrlight - I have a lot of that too; if only we could use it like super power...

Carla said...

I will never look at LOTR in quite the same way again.

Kurt said...

I never read The Lord of the Rings. What happens?

VE said...

carla - See how I can ruin even a good thing...

VE said...

kurt - Good vs. evil...the usual.

Gladys said...

So have you thought about inventing rides for Six Flags or Disneyworld?

Jaime said...

i love it. why schlep all the way to modor when they just could have hit the local staples to find the ring.

VE said...

gladys - I have...but most people would be terrified...

VE said...

jaime - Yep, the've been looking for rings in all the wrong places...

Mrsupole said...

Didn't they make more then one Magnificent Seven movie, at least 3 or 4 of them, and then a few more? And wasn't Robert Vaughn the Man From Uncle? Oh I am so confused as to how anyone could forget his movies or TV shows.

God Bless.

VE said...

mrsupole - They made more than one? I'm gonna have to go check on that now...

VE said...

mrsupole - Oh, and thanks for reminding me what that series Robert Vaughn was in. Now I remember...
