Filters poll and LOTR engrish

If you were paying very close attention, you might have noticed that I updated the sidebar of my LiveJournal main page, changing some filters, deleting one ("Beleriand", my Silmarillion filter, had only silmarillion and the inactive community noldorks) and adding one (for LiveJournal icons). ETA: To clarify, I am at my limit of 30 filters.

Recently, I've noticed that cross-talk is drowning out some of the less frequently posted-to communities. To remedy the problem (for myself, because I actually use my filters, especially the "Friends of Bill" and "Big Tronkies" fitlers), I am conducting a straw poll. Please note: I'm just asking whether you think the community should stay in, be brought back, be taken out, or be kept out of the filters (friends sublists) in question, not whether I should stay subscribed. Thanks in advance for your opinions!





In other news: As the end of the year approaches, so does the passing of the Peter Jackson film craze into the legendry of collectibles and memorabilia... but hark! Before that last huzzah, let me share with you the three engrish-subtitled versions of The Lord of the Rings films:

Yes, my current Banazir (Samwise) icon is from the first set. Thanks to mrowe for it!

Omg, I love those. So much. And the FotR one, which I've just gone through for the millionth time, has caused me to once again cry tears of laughter.

LOL! Emo VOLDEMORT?!
Sheesh, what's next, Emo Sauron with weepy lidless ey--
Ahem. Forget I said that. REALLY.

;-)

Glad you liked them. Check out the ones we came up with because we couldn't wait for the "real" ones!

Omg, now you've tempted me! If another icon appears like that, don't blame me! XDD

Engrish + LotR = always going to be solid gold. So good. *_*

I feared it was so.

Yep. They are classics.
Have you seen the Engrish ROTKs before?
Today was the first time I had seen them.

I hadn't actually! The other two, yes, but not those. XD I love the FotR ones the most, I think, just because the captions are so endlessly amusing. :D

Oh, take a look-see.
I was rolling at "fealty with love" turning into "filthy with love"... (look at Pippin's expression!)

And of course, the Prince of Cocoa is no mean thing...

I like Listeners from the Coast . It sounds so... apocalyptic.. like one of those nuclear war movies from the 50's...
"And they stood on the shore, their ships silent, listening on the radio to the sounds of a dying world... the Listeners from the Coast..."

The sex (vintage_sex) should stay in. You don't need anything else. You're a grown man. Man!

And the one about how lame RPGs are (bad_rpers_suck). Keep that one. Because it's a riot.

Engrish LotR...it's been done.

Bha, I have that community acos it's full of tasteful Victorian and early 20th century nudes. 'tis a fine line between erotica and pr0n sometimes, but this stuff stays well on one side. Lamost lawaz arty and never tacky.

You're a grown man. Man!
Says you! Aye'm a nunderage hobbit!

That it is, but eh, it's soooooo high-traffic.
Do you read even a tiny fraction of them?

Engrish LotR...it's been done.
So? I'ma do an Engrish Hobbit or Silmarillion next!
Or mazbe Earthsea adn Children of Dune...

Well, hello there, shall I call you Diamond?
It's not every day you get a post from Diamond Mask! :-D

wow, i've never seen the blog of a PhD before...
Really?
My Ph.D. alum hpguo just got his LJ, though he doesn't update much.

Other professors in my friends list include agnosticessence, butterflykiki, celandineb (whom I believe has a Ph.D.), .

Grad students include andrewwyld, bxidntdrmer, chaosinaskirt, chriszhong (KSU), consilience, discoflamigo (I think), f00dave, kakarigeiko, othercriteria, penguinicity (I think), scottharmon (KSU), and my brood: masaga, megruder, and zengeneral.

digby_tantrum and zerovector have degrees in math. angharad just completed a degree in CS, as did zengeneral and burkhardt a couple of years before them. I believe hfx_ben also has an graduate degree in CS or CE. darana and rsmit212 hold degrees in IT as well, as does sui_degeneris (CS and library science, IIRC). vectorious has a degree in physics, I think.

njagan is a K-State alum (MS-CS) from a couple of years back and I used to work with jellybeanzulu at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) at Illinois, where I participated in MILIEU-L.

istari_ala (an undergrad) is my webmaster, silpan is an alum of my group who is finishing his degree in EECE, and I have some friends in my field working on bachelors' degrees in CS, such as deire, twinbee, and jadziadax. erebrandir is a history major with some CS background.

and one who teaches at my boyfriend's brother's college! such a small, small world. all the cool teachers have blogs nowadays, i think. ;)
Yep. See above. :-)
