:: Kathy let me know about this Boston ringers' site in which she and other members share their experiences at ORC. Definately worth a look through and thanks to everyone for sharing their experiences with us
:: Maria sent along her photo op with Elijah, as did Harmony
:: Some news about Hooligans from Brinson.net, thanks to primula_baggins
...for those who keep asking there is as yet no news of release date for Hooligans in the UK although I suspect that it will be in the summer to coincide with the start of the 2005/2006 football season. I have also heard a rumour that the title may well change again but to what, I have no idea. As for the US, I can announce that the film has been accepted into the South by Southwest Film Festival due to take place in Austin, Texas this coming March. Hopefully, around this time the producers will finally be able to announce details of distribution for North America.
:: Added a whole bunch of new photos of Elijah out and about at Sundance thanks to Justine, primula_baggins and Tina on page 3
:: A little snippet from here:
Elijah Wood can scat! The happening Hobbit got on stage with a jazz band at the Getty Images studio on Main St. last week and treated the crowd to some vivacious vocal improv.
:: Elijah, according to this article is one of the the Top 10 "Best Signers":
Depp topped the top 10 "Best Signers" list, followed by the likes of Tom Cruise, Mike Myers, Angelina Jolie and Elijah Wood.
Thanks to two OLC ladies, Arwen and Galadriel
