Whereas our venerable administratorís ringworld web site and the
Ring forum community have arguably become the preeminent
international resource centers and hubs of interest for Ring-related
Whereas such fair an equal billing is provided
to all flavors and sources of books, movies and other media related
to the Ring story,
Now therefore I think it would be most
appropriate for the various creative originators of such source
materials to make themselves available to be interviewed by j. for
the benefit of all the Ringworms who have come to rely so heavily on
and greatly appreciate the content and idea exchanging resources of
ringworld and the Ring Forum.
While I can see the people
associated with Dreamworks being somewhat reluctant to do so at this
juncture in the interests of maintaining a level of mystery leading
up to the release of a remake sequel, I see no reason why the Asian
writers, publishers and filmmakers ought not want to acknowledge
their many fans here and participate in the exercise.
Notwithstanding their other priorities, surely the Dreamworks people
could participate on at least a limited basis.
thinking that either one-on-one interviews could be conducted that
cover unresolved topics of on-going interest. Better still a
moderated web-conference could be arranged with a panel of
knowledgeable and willing participants fielding real-time questions
from Ringworms all over the world.
I thought that I would
start a topic to float the idea and see if there is interest out
there in such an exercise, and whether support could be counted on
to solve any logistical problems that may present themselves in
relation to such an endeavor.

I definatley support this idea, my only worry is that it could
suddenly turn out that the creators never even thought about or
noticed our mysteries..

Um...considering J. had an interview with Gore Verbinski before the
remake was even finished and he had word about the original getting
a legit release in the U.S. long before anyone else, I'd say, yeah,
aware of Ringworld.
Hey, I got a sig: Bakka-chicka-wah-wah! (It's the closest I could

1) You guys are all fantastic!
2) The Hollywood-ites
certainly seemed to know of ringworld when I was there.
People know about it on the Japanese internet (I have a habit of
gate-crashing chat rooms and starting to ramble on about the Ring)
but I don't think anyone involved with the originals knows about the
site. If they do, they're being pretty tight-lipped
But hey, I got an e-mail from Dennis Martin, who did the
soundtrack to the Rasen TV series

Perhaps I miscommunicated if it seems that I implied that
ringworld/forum are unknown to these various people. To be more
explicit, my point is that recently the community has grown very
dramatically in size and traffic. So besides the excellent standing
and credibility that ringworld already enjoyed previously, now there
is additionally this large 'constituency' that ought to merit the
serious attention of the artists and writers to respond to the
desire of many Ringworms for more meaningful information than is
presented in your average magazine article or talk show segment.
