Lord of the Wingdings
Elijah Wood recently gave keen-eared riders on the No. 2 train a preview of his most recent artistic collaboration with fellow actor Viggo Mortensen. We’re not talking about plot points to the last installment of the Lord of the Rings trilogy, but rather his participation in a musical jam session with his Rings co-star and the exotic rock ’n’ roll creature known as Buckethead, which took place during the recording of Mr. Mortensen’s upcoming album of experimental rock.
"The guy is a genius, and I was like, ‘Oh my God, this is my chance,’" Mr. Wood was overheard saying of his opportunity to play piano, percussion and even sing alongside Buckethead, the enigmatic performer who wears the equivalent of a K.F.C. bucket on his head while playing. Buckethead was last seen by a mass audience when he appeared as a member of the new lineup of Guns N’ Roses on the 2002 MTV Music Awards.
"I got to jam for about four hours!" Mr. Wood could be heard saying on the No. 2 train. "It was really fantastic to be able to contribute, and I’m actually going to be on the album!
"According to a rep for Mr. Mortensen, a few weeks ago Mr. Wood and a few cast members from the Rings trilogy paid a visit to Mr. Mortensen, who was in his studio recording with Buckethead. "They ended up jamming," said the rep, "and they used some of that on the album, which is what Elijah was talking about [on the subway]." Mr. Mortensen, who has also expressed himself via painting and photography, has already produced three albums with Buckethead.
Mr. Wood—who was looking very un-Frodo-like on the train with a crew cut, designer jeans, Diesel shoes and a mid-length tan jacket—told his subway companions that Mr. Mortenson’s albums are "very atmospheric. Some of it isn’t really music, but with each progressive album, they’ve become more musical." Mr. Mortensen’s new album, Pandemoniumfromamerica, comes out in November.
If your interested in buying Viggo's CD, check out this site :) Thanx Rebecca!!!

:: Elijah has been in Boston recently! Soda Pop sent this: FRODO BAGGINS IN BOSTON - Actor Elijah Wood was in town for a few days with his pal, Puny Human drummer Iann Robinson (who also does the news on MTV). On Monday, while Robinson's band gigged at the Middle East, Wood hung around outside, drawing the gaze of a few ''Lord of the Rings'' fans. Yesterday, Wood showed up at the tattoo emporium owned by Frank Pino, lead singer of the band Waltham, and watched as Robinson added yet more ink to his arms. The two then departed for New York, apologizing to Pino for missing Waltham's show Saturday at the Middle East.

:: Steph sent in this rather interesting tidbit:
When searching for tickets for the LOTR Trilogy Marathon [where they'll show both extended editions of the first two movies followed by the very first screening of 'The Return of the King' the night before the official release date], i discovered that that the running time for the marathon is 692 minutes total (the FOTR extended version is 208 minutes and TTT extended version is 223 minutes as we already know!) which means.......... that 'The Return of the King' is going to be a whopping 261 minutes long for only the theatrical version so in other words it's 4 HOURS & 21 MINUTES in length!!!!!!
Of course that's just the conclusion she's come up with - so it is NOT confirmed ok? I seriously doubt it will be that long, but omg that would be cool! Thanks Steph!
