Yesterday/Saturday July 14th was the day that “The Hobbit” films took Comic Con International 2012 by storm! I was online all day chatting and posting and retweeting in RAFN, AW Chat, and Twitter–not to mention listening and watching the TORN live broadcasts. Whew! Not only were we able to share pictures and video with each other, but we did this instantaneously, synchronously, and around the globe. Snap! I love the internet! And it’s a good thing that I’m also great at multi-tasking. Ha!
Although I had so many browser windows open via one browser at different points in time that my browser crashed three times yesterday. Argh! But that was only after I reached the 8 windows mark. Ha! So technology doesn’t get a perfect ten. But the people on the internet who shared the pictures they snagged certainly do merit a perfect ten. It allowed those of us who couldn’t attend Comic-Con to experience it virtually. Thanks! for more news about Comic-Con, visit http://www.comic-con.org/
I’m too tired to do anything but look at these wonderful images once again–and maybe you are, too. So, here is a slideshow of some of the Comic-Con Hobbit images that I saved from various above locations. Thanks to all of the bloggers and sites who shared them. I’m even too tired to list all of their sources, but suffice it to say that the images were created or shared by this non-inclusive list of: Comic Con Int’l 2012, Entertainment Weekly, Flickr, RACentral, RANet, Scribblecom, TORN, Tumblr, Warner Home Video, and a host of bloggers and chatters out there including Fedoralady Fedoralady (the stunning final multicolor and fire shooting gif is from http://thearmitageeffect.wordpress.com/2012/07/14/hey-now-hes-a-rock-star/), Jonia’s Cut, Heirs of Durin, Kap, ItsJSforMe, Judiang, and SillyGilly, etc.
And let’s watch the TORN and EW interviews again:
