well, they might be, haha. all depends on how you look at it. idk...we could be weird, they could be weird...besides, everyone in the whole world has weird in them. its natural. well, anywho, you make sense to me.

i am getting way off topic, arn't i?

elijah touched my life in a way that seemed impossible. he is such a great guy. i am even tempted to say 'magical'. yeah, i know what your thinking...but still. he is just so different and incredible.

well since i saw forever young i got hooked on him since then. and I truly knew i started to be a fan since then he makes me feel very comftable and relax. I write to him once a month since 1998 but the only thing i haven't done is meet him in person. He seems like a nice guy to meet. i would do anything to meet him

I had a lot of bad things happen to me when I was a kid. But I looked forward to seeing his face on TV and that was one of the few things I looked forward to.

I became pretty shy and I decided to take acting. I did it because I thought it'd help free me from being shy, but Elijah was also my inspiration to. I took it for a couple of years. The second year my teacher assigned us to make-up a stand-up comedy. I panicked. Honestly...I felt like I didn't know how to be funny. But I did it and my stand-up comedy was the funniest out of the class! It felt like I really accomplished something. I have Elijah to thank for that.

How has Elijah touched my life? Elijah saved my life! Before I "met" Him, I was a nervous pessimist...now I'm an incurable optimist! 
And I think, that I'm better.

Quote from: miss sixty on January 25, 2009, 04:53:26 am   

When I was depressed I would always watch lord of the rings to cheer me up and Elijah (Frodo) always did, esp when he hugging the other hobbits at the grey havens

Like miss sixty, I also suffered from depression, three months straight in fact. During that time, I'd watch the Lord of the Rings movies almost every day with my dad, who, ironically enough, was who caused my depression to begin with. It greatly helped that I related the most with the character Frodo Baggins, especially when I read the books two years later.

The second thing Elijah's doing to touch my life right now is showing me, just by being himself, what kind of man to be looking for in a boyfriend. The strange thing is, we have so much in common that it's not even funny. Although the result of this creates very nice, romantic day dreams, the likelihood of going out with him is very slim. I'm not giving up hope on my dream, though.
So you see, besides playing one of my favorite literary characters, Elijah Wood has taught me how it feels to fall in love, he just doesn't know he's doing it.

I don't want to go into details, but it was at a very rough time in my life, and one thing that really helped me get through it was thinking of Frodo when he's climbing Mount Doom at the end, when it's just showing him crawling up and it's playing that music, do you know what I mean?  Well, I kept thinking if he could do that, I could get through what I was going through.  I guess that's the easiest way to explain it without going into details. 
I know it sounds strange, but it really did help,

Wow, a lot of people have amazing stories! Seriously, I feel inspired by everyone's strength! I feel sort of lame with my stories now!

Elijah Wood has impacted my life in a multitude of ways - summer camp experiences, indirect introductions to other movies, actors, and musicians, etc.

Back in the day, when my parents were both working and I was too young to stay at home by myself, I was enrolled in summer day camp at the local community center. Every Friday would be Movie Day. For some reason, we would almost always end up watching "Flipper". I think it was because I lived in Nevada and everyone at the time was obsessed with the dolphin exhibit at the Mirage (a resort and casino in Las Vegas; actually Siegfried and Roy had their show there too until, well you know, the tiger attack, but I digress). Everyone in my summer camp loved dolphins (it was the thing to love at the age of 9), so the movie "Flipper" was perfect. I think I may have even seen it in theaters on a field trip...?

So, watching young Elijah Wood would keep all of us kiddos amused for an hour or two during the hot desert summers. Watching "Flipper" somehow makes it feel like summer, and I feel like a little kid again - it takes me back to a very innocent and specific time in my life.

My Elijah Wood days became relatively dormant after that - until LOTR came out. The influence of Elijah has been pretty profound since then.

When Elijah Wood was linked to Franka Potente I looked into her work, and discovered the movie "Run Lola Run", which has actually become my favorite movie.

In addition, I've explored a bunch of different musicians and bands that Elijah has mentioned in various interviews - Thom Yorke, Radiohead, Gogol Bordello, etc. Not to mention, his involvement on Viggo Mortenson's Pandemoniumfromamerica pretty much rocked my world; I was a freshman in high school when he collaborated with Viggo, Billy, Dom, etc. My parents were on the brink of divorce, so listening to a song like "Half Fling" would brighten my day. To this day, when I make someone a mixed CD, I have to add "Half Fling"!
