Merry has a Story for You


The Story Session’s part three is out! And what is this story? It is written by me, Merry, and it is a “little” silly. The characters of the story are actually the regulars of Barliman’s – it is the chat where I started this, without a real reason, and it became a weekly event. More information can be found at the site of the story. [More]

New Line Cinema, has purchased the rights and ownership duties to the US/Canada/New Zealand based website THEONERING.NET effective immediately.

THEONERING.NET and New Line were in talks for the past 2 months negotiating the details of the purchase which include the following:

THEONERING.NET domain name will now change to LOTRMOVIE-THEONERING.NET, the entire website will be re-designed to incorporate aspects from the offcial LORD OF THE RINGS website and the New Line Store, which sells merchandise from LORD OF THE RINGS as well as other New Line films. As a direct result of the takeover, the official PETER JACKSON faclub will change names from ‘THE BASTARDS HAVE LANDED’ to ‘THE OFFICIAL NEW LINE CINEMA PETER JACKSON FANCLUB’.

Effective immediately, webmasters and staff members on THEONERING.NET will be incorporated and hired by New Line Cinema. The main focus of the site will now be more of a merchandise vendor for LORD OF THE RINGS related merchandise. THEONERING.NET will also manage and maintain a weekly newsletter which will include interesting items eager LORD OF THE RINGS fans can purchase using secure online transactions.

THEONERING.NET was originally forged by the combined vision of the four founding members in May of 1999. During the preceding month, an interest in Tolkiens work and the Lord of the Rings movies conspired to bring Calisuri, Xoanon, Tehanu, and Corvar together to create TORn. The diverse backgrounds and locations of the founding members contributes heavily in what TORn has become.

Founded in 1967, New Line Cinema is the entertainment industry’s leading independent producer and distributor of theatrical motion pictures. New Line licenses its films to ancillary markets including cable and broadcast television as well as to international venues. The company, which is a subsidiary of AOL Time Warner Inc., operates several divisions including in-house theatrical distribution, marketing, home video, television, acquisitions, production, licensing and merchandising units.
