    The Two Towers is the second part of J.R.R. Tolkien’s epic adventure The Lord of the Rings.

    One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them.

    Frodo and his Companions of the Ring have been beset by danger during their quest to prevent the Ruling Ring from falling into the hands of the Dark Lord by destroying it in the Cracks of Doom. They have lost the wizard, Gandalf, in a battle in the Mines of Moria. And Boromir, seduced by the power of the Ring, tried to seize it by force. While Frodo and Sam made their escape, the rest of the company was attacked by Orcs. Now they continue the journey alone down the great River Anduin—alone, that is, save for the mysterious creeping figure that follows wherever they go.


    While we wait for the second pick for this round of Book Club, we will continue our read of the Lord of the Rings, following The Fellowship of the Ring by the JRR Tolkien

    To make participation more inclusive and easier to follow along, we're doing quarterly reads and picking two distinctly different books. Meaning for the members with busy lives and slow reading progress, it'll be easier to finish and you can chose whether you want to read both books or stick to one - or quit while you can.

    1st rule of Book Club: You are allowed to talk about Book Club.

    2nd rule of Book Club: You are allowed to talk about Book Club even if you're not participating in Book Club.

    3rd rule of Book Club: Spoilers are to be put in a black box and labelled properly with a chapter number and if you like to be precise, a page number. Overall thoughts and feelings are fine and don't need to be spoilered, use discretion.

    4th rule of Book Club: We'll make it up as we go along

    -------------------------------------------------

    The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom comes out this friday.



    The reviews look unsurprisingly glowing.

    I personally want to watch some gameplay to see the games performance, but this has to be a must buy.
  3. World's Strongest Man 2023

    19 April 2023 - 01:19 PM

    Anyone following World's Strongest Man this year?

    Like every year, the dinosaurs that manage WSM are taping the show for television, instead of streaming the event for the fans.

    Frustrating, but you can follow the results on Strongman Archives:

    https://strongmanarc...est.php?id=1373

    I'm annoyed because my two favorites are lobbed into Group 3 of the qualifying heats. Mitch Hooper is having a ridiculous Rookie year and I could see him wining the whole show. On the other hand Matheusz Kieliszkowski was amazing before his injuries and now that he's back, I want him to power through to the podium. His speed has always been awesome to witness.

    I'd also love to see Oleksi Novikow or Handsome Pavlo win. Those Ukrainians are ridiculously good.

    Brian Shaw is competing for the last time this year. It would be cool if he managed to get the fifth WSM title but I think his prime was 5 or 6 years ago.

    I think you need therapy and probably some kind of medical treatment, Mal. How boring is your daily existence that you find it imperative to jump on this forum every few weeks and pick a fight with people?
