of the TTT Exhibit at the Royal Ontario Museum, Toronto
Just look at those posters!! yikes!
:: Yay! Topps cards have been popping up on the net lately. Here
are two from
A Hobbits Tale:
I swear, this time i'm going to collect all of them,
they stopped selling the FOTR Topps cards as soon as they
started, so i only got like 55 out of the possible 90 :( So
if you see them anywhere in Sydney, please e-mail me!!
:: The Track Listing For The Two Towers Soundtrack
:) And people make some guesses as to what's gonna be in the
next movie. Speaking of that, for people who don't know this
already.... Shelob won't be in TTT movie as she was in the
book, so a lot of the frodo and sam bits in the TTT book will
only appear in the ROTK movie. What a shame... that would
have been a great cliffhanger!!
:: And once again Cadbury is holding another
You can get free TTT trading cards in packets and $2-off
tokens to watch the movie. Lol, remember last time? I
bought like 9 packs of chocolate for the cards... and i

:: Hey everyone! Not much news, but i just wanted to try
out this new updating method :)
:: Woohoo... apparantly Elijah likes the Simpsons! :)
(might not seem like a big deal to you, but i worship
the simpsons!)... Remember how i said Big Hit has a
special TTT poster edition, well my friend Niki bought
it and... WOW! It has the biggest posters of Frodo and
the fellowship! (of course they're back to back
grrr....) Nothing we haven't seen, but i'm getting it
here's the article
with Lij which Niki scanned. Thanks

[Frodo and Sam]
:: New TTT bookmarks
:: An interview
from Famous Magazine on
with Elijah and Ian
:: Some info
about the TTT premiere in New Zealand later this year.
And did you read the last sentence? Australian media
are likely to attend the Australian premiere the
following day. So it looks like there will be a
premiere in Sydney on the 19th December... and if
Elijah attends the Wellington premiere (which of
course, he will) then he'll probably come to the Sydney
one (woohoo!!!)... but won't they all have a hangover
from the prem on the night before? poor things. Thanks
:: A really really sweet article which Kris sent me from
ROAD TO RICHES: That Elijah Wood sure is a
good son and brother. The Lord of the Rings star just
went out and bought his mom and sister brand-new
matching Mini Coopers. They'd both told him they loved
the cute new BMW cars, so he surprised them both with
a set of wheels.

November 8, 2002
:: I really hate to begin this update on a sad note, i wish i
didn't have to.. but it can't be helped. I'm asking for
your help today. A good net friend of mine and avid Elijah
fan, Dorothy, is really really ill. She has to spend the
last 2 weeks of her life in a hospital, as she has bad lung
cancer. I ask you all today to please, please pray for
Dorothy and her family. Don't take life for granted, and
realize that there are more important things in life that
finding out the latest Elijah news. Thanks for being such a
nice person Dee, you will be missed. God bless
:: Ok, another note... do not write to me asking me to hurry
up and update, i will just block you (yes, that is how
annoyed i am). Why on Earth people think i'll update just
because they tell me to is beyond me. If i have time, i
will update! ok!? sheesh. Instead of complaining, send me
news, that is what i really need
:: Once again, the
has provided us with some delicious eye candy. Some new
from The Two Towers Photo Guide
from The Lord of the Rings: Creatures
:: Now this is the sweetest thing i've read in ages. It seems
that Elijah was in Disneyland on Sunday (the 3rd) with a
group of friends (hope they had fun). Nikki sends us this news:
A lady i know works at a group home for developmentally
disabled adults, and they took a trip to Disneyland on
Sunday. They saw Lij and some friends there, and as one of
the residents was a fan of LOTR, she asked Elijah if he
would talk to him... he did, and took a photo with him, and
was very nice, she said. [Yes they did take a picture, but
i don't think she wants to post it on the net]
Here is what the lady told Nikki: What was really nice
was when i mentioned to him how much the guy really
identified with Frodo and that to tell people what film he
liked, he would take off his ring and put it in his pocket
and say "like Frodo", all of Elijah's friends just went
"ooh, how cute" Nikki asked her what he was wearing and
how he looked Blue jeans and a white shirt, button down
type, with something on the pocket, no clue what. He was
wearing sunglasses, and they seemed to be purplish, but i
could be mistaken
Apparantly his hair looks pretty much the same as it has for
the past few months, nothing noticable different. Thankyou so
much for sharing that with us, and hopefully we can get a pic :)
:: Another Elijah sighting from E!
He was at the Grove in Hollywood (Fairfax) going in to
see Punch Drunk Love. There were three guys with him, all
very hot. My friend said one of the guys looked like some
guy in the LOTR movie. The other two guys were taller and
blonde. They were talking really loud about a band. Something
about 'really digging the video'. He caught us staring and
listening and gave me a goofy look and then they all laughed.
I was embarassed but then he waved and smiled. I felt like an
idiot, but it was cool to see him.
:: Lol, the poor people translating this are probably hating me
right now for writing so much (sorry guys). And i might not
be updating for a lil while cause i have my School
Certificate on Monday and Tuesday. [wish me luck! And good
luck to others doing it too - we'll all kick butt! And study
Venera! Get off the internet!] Autumn seems to have
November 9, 2002
:: Wow.... Thankyou *so* much to everyone who has written to me
about Dorothy offering their condolences. All of your e-mails
really touched me and i just feel so much better now, so
thankyou! I didn't realize how much support she'd receive,
it's so nice to know that there are thousands of people who
are thinking of her. Thankyou!!
:: Ok, so there isn't really any news, but i'm avoiding studying
(so shoot me :P).

Entertainment Weekly sent to me by Maddy.

Aren't they just gorgeous!?!? You can find the article on the
website ew.com! :)
:: Yesterday night my friend Christina rang me up and said that
on 104.1 [Today FM] they said that they had some bad news for
Lord of the Rings fans after the break. So of course i freaked
out. And basically you know what they said? That the girl's
friend knows Peter Jackson and that he was talking to PJ and
PJ basically said that they were running behind schedule and
that he thinks that THE TWIN TOWERS won't be released in
December. Uh huh... yeh, right, we're meant to believe that this
is true when the bloody station can't even get the name of the
movie right? As if...

:: Jochen kindly forwarded
article, scanned for us from a German fan! It's in German, but he
translated it, so this is what it says:
Well, sometimes i've been turned down now and then, but the worst
time was with Mary-Ann... We were just ten or eleven years old. There
wasn't anything apart from holding hands, you know. Then I was
invited for dinner over at hers. We had an excellent tomato soup for
a starter--I easily can remember that. For the main dish, there
should've been turkey or so. But we never reached that... Suddenly,
after the soup, Mary-Ann stood up and said, "I don't wanna be together
with ya. You're way too little." Well, shocked as I was, I got up and
went home, totally embarrassed. You know, girls can be really cruel
Awwwww... poor little guy! :p Thanks Jochen!

gorgeous Orlando Bloom picture and a small cute picture of
Frodo and Sam too.
Also, something else she sent me...
If you buy a certain Canon printer you get a free Lord of
The Rings activity studio. It has stuff like web links, a quiz,
wallpapers and some kind of profile thing. I'm not sure of the
details or where the promotion is confined to but if you were
getting a new printer it wouldn't hurt to ask. It might have a
load of Frodo wallpapers!

funny/cute Frodo/Elijah animation -- Turn your speakers on!
:: Some news/gossip from Hobbit Angel..
Elijah was seen at the Jacka**: The Movie premiere...what he
had to say, "These guys are crazy, I love it. I would catch the
show on MTV when I had time, and I would laugh to the point my
sides hurt. The movie was even better, no censorship!"
:: Some news from Veronica..
There are Lord of the Rings Kites available. I found them at
Target. One is smaller and has Gandalf and Frodo, and the other

seems that it's available in Aus which is good for me :D
I got it from Harvey Norman for about $40 I think. You can
make cute little bookmarks, calendars and invitations and stuff
like that. The pictures are just the usual ones though: Frodo
with Sting, Frodo with the red Elvish from the ring reflected on
his face, and ones like that. You can also colour in these little
cartoon drawings and print them out. The screensavers are good,
but they run a bit slow for my liking. The web links are
disappointing, only being links to lordoftherings.net and the New
Line web site, as well as some others.

and the article that I posted that went with it? Well Maureen
told me that there is an additional tidbit that was only in the

Gillian Flynn ...[In 1989, New Line Cinema rejected Peter
Jackson's script for a "Nightmare on Elm Street" sequel.] Had

Elijah Wood, 21, would be causing such a stir in Manhattan's
Katz's Delicatessen, the eatery where Harry watched Sally fake the
Big O. Ordering a cup of coffee, Wood is quickly ID'd by a passel
of meat cutters, and is soon amiably signing autographs. A photo
with the owner is next. "I get to be on the wall?" Wood says.

scans from the January 2003 issue of ARENA Magazine features
Elijah Wood on the cover, in an exclusive photo shoot and
interview with the actor. It goes on sale on the 29th in England,
so look out for it. But in the meantime, Mason sent some scans

and an exclusive excerpt from the magazine!
"I'm much more recognisable now. It's every time I go out.
But I don't change my life to avoid it. It's all positive."
And does he appreciate one aspect of fame more than the other?
"You get fans of the book, you get school girls, people in their 30s
and 40s". He laughs, but entirely without ego says -
"Attention from women is never ever a bad thing, it's been
Commenting on the tightness of the Wood family (Elijah still lives
with his mum):
"I'm away for such long periods, it's great to come home. I've
been thinking I should go on vacation more, but being on vacation

:: Mary sends some scans of the TTT article in UK Sunday Express:
and the article thanks to theonering.net:
A Short excerpt of what Elijah thinks of TTT:
"Yeah they'll hate him for what he does to Sam," he says.
"But they'll probably pity both of them, too. It's such a sad
thing. Sam really picks up the slack because Frodo physically can't
do anything, he just collapses. And there is this amazing scene where
Sam picks up Frodo and Frodo is essentially dying and he says to Frodo,
"I can't carry the Ring, but I can carry you." It brings me
to tears every time I see it. It just gets very sad. I've seen bits of
film three, there is a rough edit, but I haven't seen the whole thing.
But I think it is going to be the best movie."

:: Heidi sends some interesting news..
Tonight, I was watching TV, just flipping the channels, and I
stopped it on Wheel of Fortune for some reason (maybe my "inner
Elijah sense" warned me to stop...no j/k) but anyway, these two
girls were on the last puzzle, you know, the one where RSTLNE are
already picked. It was Teen Best Friends week I guess, so they
were in it together. Well, they picked the letters H, D, M, and
O. The puzzle came out looking like "EL_ _ _H _OOD." I didn't
know the answer, but I probably should have, when I heard them
both scream "ELIJAH WOOD!" My stomach jumped to my throat when I
heard his name! Lol, well I thought that was pretty cool...and
they won $25,000 off it...
:: Also.. Veronica would like people to email her with any Elijah
quotes you know of -- email

:: Hey Everyone!
:: Vote for lij! there's a battle between Elijah and Orlando
and so far I think it's a draw..
:: Also on YM is an interview with Elijah --
The Mysterious Mr. Wood.
:: And 2 pictures posted on the YM site...
[Pic 2] -- thanks to
Bagendinn for those!
And thankyou so much to everyone that sent that in! :)
:: Also... the other day, I mentioned
Veronica wanted people
to send her quotes? well she wants quotes from fans, but please don't send
some like 'Elijah is hot' cause she needs them for a project..
:: Other news from Veronica.. she sent me a
for the United Statesyou'll notice it has the times and dates for
which the two towers specials will be airing..
Thanks to Alyssa for that as well.
:: For anyone with BravoTV - Capotica sends me
which shows that they are airing a lord of the rings special showing how it
:: For anyone with the Extended DVD- Elbereth sends some news!
I know a lot of people don't know this, and I'm sure they'd like to know
that a preview of The Two Towers trailer is included (but hidden) on the
extended DVD. To find it, on disc two of the movie go to Select a Scene and
click on #48 (don't actually play the fan club credits). The screen should
kind of change, and when you go back to the list of numbers on the right,
go down one past #48 and there should be a red tower at the bottom of the
:: I was browsing on the net last night and discovered a site which had a very
small Ash Wednesday
- i know, i know, it's tiny- but hey it's better then nothing :) ..
:: Mrs Wood tells me.. New Zealand has issued a series of TTT stamps
with elijah on the $1.50 stamp. - you can view all the stamps
or just the Frodo one here.
:: Malli sent me a this scan from the German
magazine Yam - it's written in German but she translated it -- it's
an old scan as well, before he went out with Franka..
-I TAKE LOVE VERY SERIOUS-
Yam!: Elijah, now we wanna know: Do you have a girlfriend?
Elijah: I have a lot of girl friends!
Ok, but isn't there someone special, THE girlfriend?
Elijah: No, I have no girlfriend at the moment. There are some nice
girls I go out with. But there was no "crush" yet with one
of them! Besides of that I don't have the time for a close relation
now. And being there for the other, when he needs you is very, very
important for me. "Half things" only hurt- or you don't
just let them get so close to you from the start. In both cases,
it's better to let it be!
You've already been in showbiz as a teenager and you've been very
busy all the time. Have you always been living after this philosophy?
Elijah: No, I realized this attitude only in last time. I thought a
lot about faith, love and standing too each other. The reconciliation
with my father opened my eyes. I see a lot of thing different now-
more clearly, fairly, maturely.
Did you have a lot of girls yet?
Elijah: Do you perhaps think I'm keeping all my dates in a book? I'm
really not that type of guy!
Of course not! But would you say you've got a lot of experience?
Elijah: What's a lot? Of course I've "had breakfast" with
:: Lizzy sends some cool news!
this isn't really news... but my friend's friend goes to UCIrvine and she
says that the whole campus is made and named after The Lord of the Rings.
Example- the doors are circle and your dorm could be named Hobbiton, the Shire,
etc. Wouldn't it be weird to say that you lived in Mordor? Haha. Anyway, that
was just for the LOTR/Elijah fans.
:: Also... visit Hanne's cool
Elijah site :)

:: OMG! How freaky is this?? There is a God because your prayers have
worked! (sort of!) Look what Dee [Dorothy] sent me today:|
Just wanted to inform you guys, in case you wanted to know. I
had another surgery last week, and according to the doctors it was
a wonder I'm feeling better now, and that part of the tumour is
gone now. So they're going to try chemo therapy on me, and look
how I react to it. Which means I still have a chance to at least
see one last Christmas, and with some luck and blessings I could
even survive it. So, I'm still a bit weak and weary but, happy at
heart. My prayers have been answered!
OMG! *jumps up and down* How fantastic is that? Thankyou so much
for everyone's support,
Hmmm... let's see... awards night on tuesday, end of year 10 on
Wednesday, graduation on friday, maths tests on the 9th and the
11th... then, after that i'll have time to update more often. So
please quit bugging me... go bug Autumn, lol ;)
:: But i'm in a good mood today, so i'll update. Also i added some
more galleries into the recent pics section, so check that out.
We won an award in the
Which is weird because i don't even remember entering. Thanks!!
:: Two new pics from the Sims Party sent to me by Pamela.
:: Heaps of high quality gorgeous scans from 2 magazines. I've put
them all on
and from now on i'll put new magazine scans on this page instead of
shoving them all into an update. I just posted the pics, not the
article :) If the page is unavailable please e-mail me, i don't
know how much bandwidth i have on that account.

E.W: Really? i don't really pay much attention to what is hip and
what is not. i wouldn't call this a beard. It's more of an attempt
to grow one. And i am thinking of shaving all my head hair off, its
bugging me too much.
