We've finally reached that momentous point. Today marks Always & Forever's 10th Anniversary! Thanks to Lucy for starting this site that many fans of Elijah's, curious readers and long time lurkers have visited over the years. I found this wonderful site in 2003 and never did I imagine at that time I would be managing it ten years later.
To commemorate this occasion, the Fan Appreciation Video has been completed and is up for the viewing as a permanent fixture on Always & Forever, on Youtube and on our Twitter and Facebook accounts.
I'd also like to announce the winners of the Trivia Giveaway. They are Addie, Annabelle, Carina, Denise, Patrick, Romeny and Theresa! Congratulations to you all! You'll soon receive an email to claim your wonderful Elijah-centric prizes!
It seems fitting that this update is chock full of goodies so let's get to it.
:: First, how about that stunning inset photo, huh? It was taken during filming of a short film Elijah was involved with called The Death and Return of Superman and here are a few more photos.     
:: Next month, a book entitled The Actor Within: Intimate Conversations with Great Actors will be released and Elijah is among those featured in the publication. Here are pics from the book.   
:: There's also a magazine currently on newsstands named The Lab Magazine and again features incredible photos of Elijah taken by his good friend Autumn de Wilde.    
:: Last week started the annual Fantastic Fest in Austin Texas and as usual Elijah is there taking part in the wildly fun activities. He was put to a challenge with his best bud Dominic Monaghan in a boxing match. You've probably seen his hilarious smack down to Mr. Monamanah but here's the video in case you haven't. You can view the action of the debate and boxing match at the festival's site.
:: Another video from the fest where Elijah was joined on stage with others as they all took part in his famous Yo Gabba Gabba appearance doing the Puppet Master.
:: Photos from Fantastic Fest 2011. There may be more coming, so keep a watch on that section.
:: Before the madness of Fantastic Fest came, Elijah had other duties... once again as deejay at the pre-Emmy party.
:: We've seen them before but here's a couple of larger images from Treasure Island.  
:: Last but not least, it's time for another chuckle from Mr. Elwood!
:: Thanks to Karin, Lina, Patrick and Primswood. And thank you for the birthday greetings!
That's all... for now.

After a month of persistent work, our new addition is ready. Check out the goodies in the Wilfred section.
:: Last week's season finale of Wilfred was one of the best cliffhangers witnessed from a comedy series in a long time... if ever. Here are some reviews for the show but beware of MAJOR spoilers if you haven't seen it yet. Film Thrasher, Crave Online and Assignmet X.
:: A video with the Wilfred cast from Maxim. Careful of the language though.
:: Some photos of Elijah and Hannah hanging out.      
:: A few more photos of Elijah at LAX.   
:: Some photos and a couple of videos of Elijah at his appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live.      [Video 1] [Video 2]
:: Ready for another hilarious installment of Mr. Elwood?
:: The deadline for submitting your fan appreciation videos will be extended five (5) more days until the end of Wednesday, September 21st so if you thought time had run out, there's a bit more left to be a part of this group project.
I received three videos without the correct subject line, so they will NOT be opened. Please use the subject Fan Video when submitting your videos. And remember there is still one week remaining to send in your answers for the Trivia Giveaway. The more questions you get right, the better your chances are to pick up one of the prizes.
:: Kudos to Karin, Lijeyeshaveit, Lina, Patrick and very special thanks to Kristy and Tom.
That's all... for now.

We're not quite sure of the exact date Always & Forever went online, but as close as we can place, it went live on September 28, 2001. It was back then when our founder, Lucy put together this site for fans to follow anything happening with Elijah and I'm happy to say that of all the sites that came about during the phenomenon that was The Lord Of The Rings and its ring bearer, A&F is one of the last, if not the last active fan site of Elijah's still around.
Over the years there have been many changes to help keep our site going. There have been new layouts thanks to your votes, a revamp of the forum as well as other areas of the site and new sections such as Movie Stills, The Age of Aquarius, Simain Records , our exclusive comic strip, Mr. Elwood by the talented Lina, Photo Encounters and jumping on board with Twitter and Facebook. Now, I'm happy to say another new section that I've been working diligently on will be announced before the end of the month.
To help celebrate , we're going to hold two events. The first one is a contest! Want to own some nifty Elijah gifts? Go to the forum to find out about our 10th Anniversary Giveaway!
Secondly, we obviously can't forget about the man who has made it possible for A&F to stay afloat all this time. Taken from an excellent suggestion sent in by Jawaher, we're putting a call out for videos. Tell us what you like, love and admire about Elijah and send it into us. We will chose the best 25 submissions, edit them into one video and post it on A&F, Twitter, Facebook and Youtube. To find out what you need to do to participate, visit the forum for details.
:: OK, let's get to a little news. Elijah is scheduled to make an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Wednesday September 7th. Check your listings for station and time.
:: Here we are coming near the end of the season of Wilfred in the states and it still earns some of the best reviews around. Here are a few from the latest episode. Assignement X, TV Fanatic, Lean Lamoray and The Rogers Review.
:: Don't blink! A new glimpse of Elijah in the mini series Treasure Island that's set to air at the end of the year in the UK and early next year in the states.
:: Some photos of Elijah arriving or leaving LAX last week.   
:: There was a recent press conference for Wilfred last week and we've got some photos and a video.
:: You have to behold this beautiful drawing by our resident Elijah artist Denise!
:: Lastly, Happy Feet 2: The Video Game.
:: Thanks for the nuggets Karin and Patrick!
That's all... for now.
