Hello everyone, my name is Sorsha and I am a forum addict.

I started out on a forum for LOST tv show spoilers around 2007-ish. One forum grew to two then three, and so on and so fourth...

Since LOST ended in 2010 I've been, well...... lost.... :wink:

Also, the interwebs was "banned" at work so I couldn't really use my downtime there to cruise the threads like I wanted to anymore. I now have a semi-cushy job where web use is allowed so I'm looking to pick up on my old habit again. :D

I've been a fan of fantasy in general since I was a kid in the 80's and am a big fan of Tolkien so I hope this site is as interesting as it looks!

See you all around! :happydance:

Sorsha! Hello and welcome! :D

I was a "lostie" too, although I never posted on any forums for the show.

See you around. Enjoy yourself.

Hi Siddharth - As a lowly petitioner to the council I meant no offence. I call my girlfriends 'guys' too - too many episodes of Friends in my misspent youth...LoL :D

Greetings, Lady of Light!
Yeah, it's weird, but "guys" can refer to "girls" as well. I do try to say "girls" when it's only girls, though.

Hello Lady of Light!

I apologize for my tardiness in welcoming you to TORC. RL tends to overwhelm at times.

Nice to meet you, and I hope you enjoy your time here.

Hi Everybody!

I'm a new oldbie - couldn't remember which email addy I used in years past and had to reincarnate. 8) It's good to meet all of you and am looking forward to getting back into TORC!

Now for a crazy question. Where do I get my avatar?? I looked on the User Control Panel and can't find where I can choose one anymore. I feel naked (blushing!).

If you want your old account, try emailing the Mods.
They helped my bff find her old account.

As for the avatar...
User control panel
Go to the left of the screen
Press "Profile"
Then "Edit Avatar"
At the bottom of that page is "Display Gallery"

I think you can take it from there.

Postby Corsair_Caruso » Mon Dec 02, 2013 7:41 pm

Hello, all! I'm very new to the board, but people have been very welcoming.

I've been looking for a Tolkien-forum home for a little while now. I've been spending my time discussing Tolkien at an alternate history website up until now (which actually has a fair number of Tolkien-enthusiasts) but I thought a forum dedicated specifically to Tolkien would give me greater and more varied opportunities for discussion.

I've read The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, The Silmarillion, Unfinished Tales, The Children of Hurin, and am currently working my way through Morgoth's Ring, The Peoples of Middle-earth, and The Letters of J.R.R. Tolkien, as well as my second re-read of The Hobbit (I first read it when I was nine, and then again sometime in high-school; I want to make it a yearly tradition to make my way through The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings).

I do a little fan-fiction writing, mostly of the "alternate history" variety. My biggest project right now is an extensive timeline that starts with Sauron assassinating Ar-Pharazon rather than allowing him to use the Great Armament to attack Valinor. He then takes control of Numenor himself and turns its military might against Middle-earth. It's a bit darker than the original story, but I promise there's light at the end of the tunnel. At some point, I'd love to share some of it here, but it needs a lot more work before I'm ready for that.

I love discussing Middle-earth's history, Tolkien's philosophy and metaphysical statements concerning his constructed world, Tolkien's constructed langauges, and just about any other academic consideration of the Professor and his works.

I'm an opera singer and voice teacher, currently engaged in doctoral studies for a DMA in Vocal Performance. My love of Tolkien has worked its way even into my scholastic studies: I'm currently planning on doing my doctoral thesis recital on the song cycle "The Road Goes Ever On," by Donald Swann, set to the poetry of Professor Tolkien, the last song of which was developed from a melody written by the Professor himself!

So... I hope to find a place where I can engage in spirited discussion, both of depth and breadth, concerning Professor Tolkien's works here, as well as the various works of art (literary, musical, visual, and otherwise) that they've inspired. :)

Welcome to TORC, Corsair Caruso! :) Here, you sure find others who share your love of the Professor's works (and for music as well). Hope you'll feel at home!
