And now for something completely different

A little light entertainment – click on the link to go to Colbert’s interview of Elijah Wood – especially do so if you are as big of a LOTR geek as Colbert and I are (altho’ truly I have to bow to his Geekness, Colbert  is a Master Geek in this regard)  I couldn’t embed the video so you’ll have to go to Comedy Central to watch – stay through the Happy Feet to get to the Hobbit:

Elijah Wood on Colbert

Lord of the Vuvuzela!

This made me laugh early in the morning – an almost impossible task.  Nicely done:

Of Hobbits and The Road

Okay – I’m still trying to post every day so as you noticed the content is all over the place.  Today’s post is about two interesting articles I read on line.  This one –  Our Dream Hobbit  Cast talks about who may or may not be cast in The Hobbit movie.  Apparently, Peter Jackson, Fran Walsh and Guillermo Del Toro are writing the script – not a bad bunch.  The casting of Sir Ian, Hugo Weaving and Andy Serkis, all reprising their roles from LOTR is a done deal.  The big  question is who will be Bilbo.  The author of the article has some interesting suggestions – one of which I like in particular is having Alan Rickman cast as Smaug.  Most excellent suggestion.  Here’s an “unofficial” Hobbit move site that keeps up on the latest if you’re interested:  The Hobbit Movie

This article is about a month old but new to me – in it Viggo talks about The Road and The Hobbit: Mortensen Here he talks about filming on The Road and the possibility of Aragorn turning up in the Hobbit – slim to none but he’s willing if they can work it in.  So Mr. Jackson – please work him in.  Altho’ really I tend to be a bit of purist about stories and as much as I love Mr. M, I wouldn’t want the story of The Hobbit messed with too much.  I was not overly fond of the addition of all the Liv Tyler scenes in LOTR.

Hobbit Videos – Oldies but goodies?

Just for fun, two of my favorites hobbit related videos.  This one is just fun and creative and mesmerizing.

And this one, and let me preface this with saying I was a card carrying member of the Leonard Nimoy Fan Club in my youth but, …. well, this one is…. oh what would be a good adjective to describe it…. here, you watch it and tell me….  start with the white pants and blazer and go from there…..
