actually it is true, because i saw it.  she was the only person who stopped Elijah as he made his way backstage. 

You were there too?!  Oh, I wish I'd known!  I've never met another Elijah fan face to face!

Did you meet him too?

hehe.  That's like asking if chickens have wings.  But I'll let nettie answer for herself. 

Yours is such a great account, and reflects a maturity which I wish many other people had when encountering Elijah in the wild. There is a time and place for everything, and that was not an appropriate camera time.  What should you have done... film a kiss by kiss record of their canoodling session? (Though that would be nice to see...    )  How intrusive could anyone get?  Glad you didn't go all papparazzi on them!

i know what it's like to see elijah out and about doing his thing. enjoying his "me" time and not taking a picture. i had my camera and did take some of him, but in certain situations, it just wasn't appropriate. there is a thing called a conscience, and respecting ones privacy.

on my way to see elijah last year, i met danny glover at union station in DC. as soon as i saw him i grabbed my camera and beelined toward him, but he looked extremely tired, so i ditched the camera and shook his hand instead.

Thanks for sharing your story Plutonic, I'm glad you got to meet Elijah in such a natural setting, and I totally agree, taking a picture at that moment wasn't necessary, some people do, some people don't.. I'm glad you thought of his feelings.

I would have been surprised if you HAD taken a pic, on a spur of the moment meeting like that.

Thanks for sharing!

Hugs,

Thanks for sharing your story Plutonic.  He is such a sweetie!  I love reading peoples' accounts of their meetings with our boy.  You are one of the lucky ones to be sure!!!

... it's good to hear you enjoyed the show. I saw them last December and loved it, though Pam and Elizabeth weren't there  Maybe next time.
So Gogol sometimes play without the girls?  Oh, thatís a shame Ė they add so much, I think.  I mean, they'd still be excellent without them, but not  as spectacular.

Yes indeed.  But I always thought I would never be one of the lucky ones....until Monday night!  So take heart, all those who have yet to have the pleasure and privilege of meeting him! 

You know what one of the best things has been?  Telling my Mum!    She's in her 70's and thinks Elijah is a fine actor, but she's not a 'fanatic', if you know what  I mean.  But she was so completely thrilled and excited for me, bless her, I was really touched.

That's great!  My parents (also in their 70s) contemplate starting an intervention any time I so much as mention LOTR or Elijah...

Oh that's so wonderful for you!  Not including the fact that you got to see Gogol Bordello.  I was so mad there they had a concert like an hour away from me and I didn't know until the next day.   But anywho that's excellent!

There was another girl with them, don't know her name and I really didn't like her show. I had the feeling she didn't enjoy what she was doing

I agree. Everyone is entitled to believe or not believe a fan account. If she's run into liars before then i can understand that she didnt want to believe this wonderful report without others backing it up.
On with the show:
Yay we'll get more photos of Lij if he's going on tour!

they toured last winter without Pam and Elizabeth.  neither one made it across the Atlantic for various reasons.  the other girl's name is Cathy.  and no, she is not that good.  i guess that would be a hard job to fill in for the other two because they are so good.

Oh please don't tell me people are going to start getting their knickers in a knot because somebody knew somebody at ELF who thinks they know why Elijah cancelled.  Even if that was the real reason (which I very much doubt considering E & P have been known to cope with spending time apart) I doubt if his management would give that reason to ELF staffers.    ELF is one weekend right?  I find it hard to believe Elijah can't be away from GB or Pam for one weekend. Afterall he's just done that.  And he flits back and forth across the Atlantic like a migrating pigeon for goodness sake.

Quote from: Seven on July 05, 2006, 11:11:18 am   

Sorry that offends you Plutonic. But frankly, I've encountered too many liars with agendas and sockpuppets to simply believe any such encounter without proof, from someone relatively unknown. Too many similar accounts have been faked, even in submissions to the media.

It wouldn't matter who was in such an account, or what they were doing. If it could belong to anyone with an agenda, then I don't take it seriously until it's backed up by evidence or someone who definitely has no agenda. (IE, I didn't believe the public gay snogging accounts, or the Lolita model reports)

I don't think that's too unreasonable. It's hardly a crime to simply not take the word of any person who signs onto a board...

It's not that you should believe every story that's posted - and by the sounds of things you probably have been hurt by sock puppets and the like in the past, which is a shame.  But perhaps you could think about the tone in which your post came across.  It came across as quite sarcastic and sort of ridiculing of Plutonic - which is a little unfair to a new poster that you don't know.  A new poster is not going to understand the built up anger that was evident in the post.  I'm a newbie too and I was quite taken aback by the tone because I didn't understand where you were coming from.

Perhaps if you wanted her to verify her story, you could have just explained politely why you doubt these kinds of stories and then explain why you'd like to see a photograph if possible.  I'm sure you'd get a much more understanding response.  I bet this sounds so blastedly preachy - I'm sorry for that.  It just that I think you're misunderstanding Plutonic's and other's negative reaction to your post.

As to why Elijah hasnít said anything about why he canceled ELF, perhaps he is obligated not to say anything.

He could have been cast in a film and the producers and director want to keep the whole thing under wraps until casting is complete.

I sincerely doubt he would turn down a good role to follow GB from place to place.
All though my husband thinks Pam would be worth it. 

Plutonic that was great that you got to meet Elijah.  I came close once but alas.

I would love to hear that CD you gave him.  My husband plays trumpet in a local Mariachi band so I appreciate the Flamenco.

(Doesn't want to start a riot so I wonder if I should suggest such a thing...)
Maybe it's very PERSONAL .... why he won't be there and maybe it's none of our business.....just a thought.
