:: A little throwback to Fantastic Fest, here's a few videos. An interview on the complexity of filming Grand Piano, a somewhat one-sided conversation on how Elijah feels about the city of Austin, and what would Fantastic Fest be without some crazy antics? [Antics 1 ] [Antics 2]
:: As wonderful as all of this is, it's not completely about Grand Piano. Here's a nice interview Elijah recently gave about Cooties.
:: Great news and not so great news about Wilfred. The great news is that it will be returning for Season 4! The not so great news is that it will be the last season. We'll be sad to see this brilliant show come to an end but it will have and end and answers to those questions we've been asking for the past three years. David Zuckerman will be back as show-runner and has tweeted that plans for the final season are off to a great "unofficial" start. We look forward to one last season of shear greatness!
:: Get ready for some thrills and chills as SpectreFest, part of Cinefamily will show Grand Piano with Elijah present for a Q&A.
:: Here's a deleted scene from Maniac. Watch out for a brief glimpse of scalping.

:: In case you were wondering what happened, A&F no longer has a Facebook account because the geniuses over there have figured out that we were impersonating Elijah for the last three years and deleted our account without any notice. Yeah, we've been dimed out folks. We totally fooled people by posting updates in the third person and reported on news articles and posted photos and videos of Elijah that were all over the internet. We will not... repeat, NOT obtain another account with them but we will continue to keep our Twitter account updated with those articles, interviews and videos about ourselves. Oops! I mean, Elijah.
: Thanks to Ambree, Jaramajo and Karin.
That's all... for now.
