Despite Elijah making an appearance at SXSW last Friday, there's not much happening in the update, but update I must.
:: There are a few pictures from SXSW when Wooden Wisdom DJ'ed at Barracuda.
:: There's also a couple of very short videos. Video 1, Video 2.
:: Entertainment Weekly has a podcast, as well as one from Bill Carter on SiriusXM of Elijah talking more about I Don't Feel at Home in This World Anymore and portraying classic literary characters like Huck Finn.
:: The striking inset photo is from Sundance and is featured in Rolling Stone Italia and MovieMaker Magazines.
That's all... for now.

If you haven't watched I Don't Feel at Home in This World Anymore on Netflix yet, go do it! It's funny, dark, disturbing, timely and brilliant! I see why Elijah and Melanie are getting a lot of praise and why it won the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance.
:: Because I love this film so much, I've made some screencaps, but beware of spoilers! Also, there is a page that has just a few of the remarkable reviews the film is receiving.
:: Here's a great print interview from Elijah and Melanie on Past Magazine, one from Elijah, Melanie and Macon from Rolling Stone and a podcast review from Jump Scare which calls I Don't Feel at Home the film of the week. The review begins at the 1hr-35min mark.
:: Elijah was out on the promotion circuit last week and one of the stops was on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. You can watch a little of the pre-show, Elijah playing a round of Musical Beers and afterward, have an extended geekout conversation about The Bachelor. There's also some screencaps from the show. Fun stuff!
:: There were more stop-offs at Sway [Watch], and Jim and Sam [Watch]. If you have SiriusXM, you can listen to podcasts with Sandra Bernhard and Pete Dominick where he talks about social media, politics, his first acting job, horror films, deejaying, karate, traveling and the new film of course!
:: If you're in the U.K., lucky you! Award winning, Set Fire to the Stars will premiere on BBC2, March 1st! If you haven't seen this magnificent film, there's no excuse now.
:: Thanks for the finds Ambree and Jaramajo!
That's all... for now.

After all the bustle of activities at the Sundance Film Festival, I Don't Feel at Home in this World Anymore took the top prize at the festival! The film won the U.S. Grand Jury Prize: Dramatic, and on Elijah's birthday no less! You can watch the entire ceremony with the Grand Prize award at the 2:02 mark. Congratulations to all involved!
:: There's more from Sundance with video interviews from Deadline Hollywood, Collider, Variety and the inset photo is one of more images added to the two pages of pics from the festival.
:: Remember, you can watch I Don't Feel at Home starting February 24th on Netflix. The film is also on Rolling Stone's Best Of list for February.

:: A mini reunion with some of The Lord of the Rings cast members took place with Elijah, Viggo, Billy, Dom and Orlando.     
:: Here's a cool thing. Bentley, the star Corgi on Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency has gathered some of the amazing artwork fans have created, framed them and displayed them on his... or his owner's walls. I'm honored to see my own among them.
:: Lastly, Elijah... one of the few nice celebrities. But we already knew that.
That's all... for now.

Tidying up the information section for the end of the year with some new additions to the companies page and a new Dirk Gently review page.
:: Speaking of Dirk Gently, looks like the region 1 DVD/Blu-ray will be out next year, though it's not quite certain when that will be. October 1st is an awful long time to wait. One thing is certain is the cover art.
:: There are some new artworks added to the Dirk Gently section. You must check out the talent!
:: Commemorating the 15th anniversary of the release of The Fellowship of the Ring, I decided to dig out the inset photo taken almost to the date of the film's invasion on the world. Also, Empire Magazine conducted a unique interview with the cast. You can check out the scans here.
:: I want to send out big thanks to these people who helped contribute to plenty of content over this past year. Amanda, Denise, Jaramajo, Misty, Patrick (thanks for the scans), Romina, Serena and all those nameless folks who took a mountain of photos and videos. Very special thanks to Ambree, Addie and Paulie who gave their valuable time to help put together Elijah's Life Biography, possibly the biggest addition to the site in a while.
:: Going to close out 2016 now with my annual year end Elijah video that covers most of what went on this year in 16 minutes. Click below and enjoy!
