:: News from Kristi about the DVD.. Just yesterday I was over at Fred Meyers and I bought a Lord of the Rings, The Two Towers DVD. Well, apparently, when you buy the DVD, you get a free bobble head!

There're only available at Fred Meyer and I assume you can get them nation wide (I live in the US by the way)

:: Anyway, the fabulous Marcus from elijah-wood.com has made a chat room for A+F!! Well, not strickly for this site, it's also combined with his site, so you have more chance of being able to talk to people at any one time ;) Apparantly it's easy to use and if you get stuck there are moderators [marked with a special sign in front of their names] who would be more than happy to help. It's located here. When it loads, you may have to agree to download an irc thingy, just agree to that, and make sure you register your username.
I know that a lot of you have been asking for this for a while, so i hope you can make use of it :)
Thankyou so much Marcus!

:: Great news everyone! The ROTK trailer will be released on the internet [on lordoftherings.net] on Monday! Also, TORn posted this:
Several of you have written in to say that the following message has been posted on AOL ROTK Boards: "Join fellow 'Lord of the Rings' fans this Sunday [the 28th] beginning at midnight ET to watch the movie trailer for 'Return of the King.' AOL will be the only place you can see this trailer, so be sure to join us at AOL Keyword: Lord of the Rings!"
Definately keep an eye on Theonering.net for all of the information on the ROTK trailer. They've posted heaps of descriptions of it that you might want to check out. Also, you can download a little snippet of the trailer that was shown on E! here - And yes there are spoilers of course! You can also view screencaps of that trailer here - Courtesy of Elf Lady. Also from Elf Lady, screencaps from the ROTK TV trailer ad which aired with the "Second-hand Lions" commercial.
:: Sherri sent in this fantastic news which was printed in the NY POST Wed Sept 24th:
Robin Williams, Elijah Wood (and others) Will play Celebrity Charades on September 29 at the Daryl Roth Theater to raise money for the Labyrinth Theater Company. I called and they said tickets are a whopping $250 per person. There will be cocktails and 'heavy' hors' derves at 7pm, a speech and awards ceremony, after which, at about 8:45pm, the games will be under way. She said the only possible no show was Robin Williams because of schedule conflicts, but everyone else is expected to be there. I also asked if there was going to be any media coverage, and was told E Entertainment network was going to be there...that's all I was told. Benefit coordinater: Sally Sanders
Also in attendance will be Dominic Monaghan and Billy Boyd! :) More info is here and you can buy tickets here. I'd *love* to be able to go to that! Thanks Sherri for the news!
:: The Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind trailer can be download here - Thanks Ellie who posted that in the commenting system [BTW thanks for all of your positive comments]
September 27, 2003
:: ROTK Trailer! WOW! Here is the ROTK trailer [from theonering.net] that is gonna be released on lordoftherings.net on Monday, only it's an asian version that was shown on tv there i think. It's not the *best* quality - it's a little dark, but it's very clear, and contains major spoilers - I'm warning you, don't download it if you don't want to see it ok? I'd recommend waiting for the nicer version on monday, but this is still really really cool :D
:: While you're waiting for that to download, here are some Frodo screencaps from the trailer [thanks OBM]:
