    Nono Asme, that was Zerioc. I have just listened to about 250 songs of her since I've seen that.

    Oh yes. Comparatively, and this is with made up numbers, a book to movie adaptation will cut out like 70% of the content to make it fit where something like Game of Thrones will probably cut out like 40%. There's still a lot of stuff cut out, but b/c it's spread throughout a whole season of like 10 episodes (idk how many each season has had) at an hour each instead of 2-3 or 3-4 hours in one movie, there's more stuff that can be shown.

    It's basic human nature, Arlee. Trust me, I'm a marine biologist.

I'm very glad that they're doing the Song of Ice and Fire books as a tv series rather than a movie for each book b/c they'd have to neuter everything to fit it into movie form.
    I don't really care enough about LotR to bother, tbh. It's a fantasy tale.. big deal (and that's my opinion on the matter). The extended cuts of each of the LotR movies are good enough for me to get the gist of each of them.

    It's similar to how people are so excited for the Hobbit movies, and honestly, I couldn't give a fuck. Well, I'm indifferent to it. Tolkien has never really interested me.

    Except they kinda screwed some of the story up with the Two Towers and Return of the King, but you'll never know as the butchered and mutilated version is good enough.

    Well. Not all books.

    The Tolkien books were boring, though. Started the first one, and it never really captivated me.

    But remember, that's my opinion on it. No need to bite my head off for having a view that's different to someone else's.

    I have never been a fan of reading books, so yeah, especially books from school. Don't blame me, blame school for having boring stuff.
