Just a quick update today folks.
:: Of course, Elijah is hanging out at the Coachella Music Festival this weekend in Indio California. What would a music festival be without him?     
I'm pretty sure more pics and maybe a report or two will be coming.
:: Bunnie has linked us to an interview on MSN by Elijah discussing The Oxford Murders and meeting John Hurt. It's about five minutes into the clip.
:: Earth's Daughter has a downloadable version of Elijah In The Hood on E4. Make sure to type in the three letter code before downloading and be careful. It's a very large file and the interview contains spoilers. Also, the site may not open immediately. BTW, this video will show with a VLC player.
:: There are some scans from Vanidad magazine that Jaramajo shared with us.
:: Serai was so kind to translate the article which accompanied the photos from the magazine. You can read it here.
Told ya it was quick!

:: Big thanks to Salwood, Earths Daughter and Roo for providing scans from the magazines Total Film and Times Online. Both can be found in the magazine scans section. The inset photo was cleaned up by yours truly.
:: Pitchfork News reports that Elijah will be part of a new music documentary titled The Heart Is A Drum Machine.
:: There was a long time rumor that Elijah participated in a mock stage play put on by a group called Mortified. Well, that rumor is true and we have the video to prove it. It's quite funny!
:: We'd like to thank Nats for providing us with a collection of quotes sent in by regular A&F members. There is a PDF download or you can download the TXT file.
:: And speaking of quotes, our new section is coming along nicely. We have posted quite a few nice words from and about Elijah in the new quotes section. Remember, if you have some that you'd like to pass along to us, please email myself or Brenda with them. And don't forget about the movie reviews as well.
That's all... for now.

The quotes section will have quotes from but also about Elijah while the movie review section will feature a few reviews of Elijah's films. We want to invite all of you to contribute to these new sections. If you have good quotes from or about Elijah, feel free to email them to Deenan or me. The same goes for movie reviews but there we have one rule: keep it objective. From all the quotes and reviews we receive, we will make a selection to put on the site. Please do not post them in the boxie, we might not see them.
That's all... for now.
