This from our friends over at TORN in summing up the activities at San Diego Comic Con

Quote:
We saved the biggest and most conjecture filled news for last. But first, let’s see if you were paying attention to a certain line of dialogue in The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies. After the battle has wound down and we see how it plays out for the Elves, Legolas has decided that he is going to leave Mirkwood. Thranduil does not try to stop him, but does mention he should look up a Ranger named Strider of the Dúnedain. The Appendixes, for which the movie rights still exist, include details of Strider riding off with the likes of Elladan and Elrohir and some other Rangers and winds up traveling to both Rohan and Gondor, among other places far and wide using the name Thorongil. This data, which is known to be available in the Appendixes, coupled with some rather interesting whispers to come out of some reliable realms indicate that there is some great interest in continuing stories set in Middle-earth. Just ask there will be more Potterverse stories based on the Book of Creatures, we may well have an expansion to the Middle-earth Cinematic Universe (known as MeCU, cause any Tolkien fan worth his or her salt knows that the ‘e’ in earth is lower case). So the line spoken by Thranduil about sending Legolas to find this young Dúnedain Ranger, and some of the other little lines sprinkled throughout LOTR about Aragorn’s past traveling through Rohan and Gondor may well be in the works. But as always, this is all conjecture and rumor at the moment, until the time comes when it is no longer just secret kept secret and safe.


Now we just have to talk about this.

I thought it seemed very much like they were trying to do this. Or at least to leave the door open to do it if the money is there.

I have my doubts. Maybe a "Young Aragorn Jones Chronicles" TV Series?

Not sure what the conversation was about, but thanks V for sharing that video, we had the pleasure of seeing that brand of Crim in 1981 - when the called themselves Discipline, for a short while - the set was stunning and the sqeally mouse guitar solo a genuine surprise

I saw that tour too, but they were billed as King Crimson on this side of the pond. It was before the album Discipline came out so we were expecting something more like 20th Century Schizoid Man.

Coincidences,
I just looked up the date 6th May 1981 at Keele University

they were backed by a band called the Lounge Lizards in the UK who were really excellent, so good if fact that I feared that KC would be pale in comparison and Mrs E who was not a big fan, would give me grief but no the Lounge Lizards were good, but Fripp and co were just wonderful
