:: Ahhh.... stupid stupid messageboard!! I just got the damn thing
figured out and everyone was posting away happily when the stupid
server puts a 3MB limit on it. I deleted all posts older than one
day, and i'm still over the limit by like 2.5 MBs, sorry,
but i e-mailed them and they said that bascially there was nothing
more i could do unless i want to have a messageboard where there
is only 1 message. So in short, i deleted over 10,000 posts but it
STILL isn't working. I've got better things to do than worry about
this. I got an offer from destroythering.com to host a
messageboard, maybe I'll take them up on that offer. Sorry about
that everyone, i'm as disappointed as you are
Tuesday, 3 September 2002
:: Hey! Great news! Jochen very kindly offered to host the messageboard!
He's set it all up and fixed everything so it's ready to go! :) It's
the same concept as the last one, so it shouldn't be too hard to work
out. If you have any problems just e-mail me or Lucy - or Jochen :)
And if you're worried about all of your posts that you lost, don't
worry, just send a message to Lucy and tell her how many posts you
had and you'll get them back :) And yes, the 1500 messages thing is
still on... i think. So the new URL is:
sign up again, and start posting!! :) Thanks Jochen!!!
:: Well, i've got lotsa pics to post today :)
:: Ok, well firstly Elven (I hope that was your name :)) has sent me a
little snippet from 'US Magazine' bout what Elijah likes for breakfast
:)... "I drink a lot of coffee. I love breakfast, but I don't get
around to it too often. If I do eat, I love eggs Benedict. I love
hollandaise sauce. It's good stuff. You can't beat that."
:: Well, here are some of the pictures I got sent... :)

the 2003 Guiness World Records! On page 185 there is a nice half
page color photo from the movie of the hobbits brandishing their

:: I realise it's been a week since i've updated, but really there
isn't any news. Plus i'm really stressed out at the moment, so
i don't have time to deal with Elijah news deprived fans. Sorry,
but that's the way it is.
:: Got a cool new award! :)
:: Erica sent me this news from VirginMegaMagazine.com
"Hybrid Japanese producer and performer Cornelius (aka Keigo
Oyamada) closed out his successful tour of American with a tight,
visually stimulating live performance at the El Rey Theatre in
Los Angeles on Friday (8/23). Playing to a near capacity crowd,
Cornelius, King of the Apes, played with remarkable flair and
energy along with precession timed video clips and a tight band
that were all dressed in similar white shirts with thin black
ties. While having visuals such as paint splattering and water
bubbling synchronized to the beats of the music as a captivating
companion to the sonically intricate music from his current
album, Point, Cornelius and band showed they could rock the
house by playing tracks from Fantasma sans video that left the
audience applauding wildly. As a bonus surprise during one of
the songs, Cornelius pulled up Lord of the Rings actor Elijah
Wood out of the audience and guided his hand into playing a
melody by the King of Rock 'n' Roll ("Love Me Tender")
on the Theramin, a rare electric instrument that is played not
by touch but by placing one's hands within a magnetic field.
Needless to say the crowd loved it. After spending five years
making Point, Cornelius promises that his next album won't be so
long in the making. Word on the street has it that he's
currently playing around in the studio with Beck ..."
:: I made a quick FAQ the other day, so

:: Hey Everyone! Just another small update to keep you informed :)
:: Stacie sent me a new picture of Elijah from the 'Burn This'
premiere Here from Wireimage,

:: I got sent this info from someone about 'Thumbsucker' -
thumbsucker- in development stage; Mike Mills has written a
screenplay adaptation of Walter Kirn's novel about a boy who sort
of overcomes an oral fixation, becomes a Latter-day Saint and goes
on a mission; starring Elijah Wood; filming began July 2002. Due

Monday, 23 September 2002
:: Sorry to break it to you guys but I think most of the information
I posted in yesterdays update (Sunday, 22 September) about
Thumbsucker is incorrect, I've just gotten an email from Mary, she
emailed the Oregon Film and Video Organisation and insure that the
information was right and they said that there are no definite
plans on when or where they will be filming, the only information
known at this stage is that it is going to be filmed in Portland,
Oregon. Now i dunno what information is 100% correct, im just
informing you all so you don't get too excited at this stage..

:: Malimoo sent me a new picture of Elijah she found
:: Moew also sent me this little piece of information she got from an
Ian McKellen site.. "Home with friends from the cast - only
Orlando Bloom, filming 'Ned Kelly' in Australia, was too busy to
return, but the rest of us have made it back. Elijah Wood and Liv
Tyler look ever so slightly older than 18 months ago and John
Rhys-Davies has been losing weight, but make-up and padding will
disguise these developments. "- This looks like it might be a
bit of older news.. :)
