Looking forward to the film. I used to do artwork for the Tolkien Society's Amon Hen and Mallorn publications a loooong time ago, back in the First Age or thereabouts. Oxonmoots were great with people coming from all over (America, Denmark and the other Scandinavian countries and Ireland). I would say there were more hobbits in attendance at these get-togethers than any other species; orcs being second and elves third. It was very hard to be a convincing balrog without setting off the smoke alarms.
