Hobbit Alert!
Hey - am I the last to know that Andy Serkis is in "The Prestige", a movie about rival magicians that opens today? HOBBIT MOVIE!!!!

And Dom's interview for PETA is worth watching, even if you're not a supporter of PETA: http://www.peta2.com/outthere/o-dominic_lost.asp?c=918 (no offense, but they're too extreme for me; I support other organizations that protect nature)

Let's see... and Elijah is on for ORC, so that qualifies as even more hobbit news!

*love hobbit news*

*G*

This is honestly the first I heard of it! And I keep confusing it with The Illusionist, which is also about a magician. I gather this takes place in the present, though.

he's opening for Matt Kearney

if you sign up to Griffin's mailing list on his own site you could win free tickets ;)

ah dilemma - Griffin plays New York same night as CoRo.. of course if I were Lisa i'd see Griffin open then hoof it over and miss CoRos opening acts. What a night that would be!

We saw The Prestige last night, and it was quite good. Bowie as Nikola Tesla FTW (especially his first shot, hee). One of us at least will have to see it again, as I need one more timeline puzzle piece.
The realizations, as they hit you, are v. intense and I ended up with a headache: paradoxically, always a good sign.

hmmmmm.... "FTW"? "Far Too Wierd?" *ggl* How much Andy?! Thanks, I'll definitely go see it!

Great. Was this the one that was done by the director (or writer?) of "Memento"?

Oh, and the wonderful Common Rotation is in town at Uncommon Ground on Tuesday (I think... have to check), and again on Nov. 4 (again, check) if you're interested. Website: www.commonrotation.com

FTW=For The Win. And yeah, it's Chris Nolan - damn and praise him. I actually think there's more Andy than Bowie; it's hard to say what percentage-of-film, but it's Important Screentime.

You and CR tempt me strangely. I'll have to check & see what's going on. *makes a note*

Yes, I prefer Nature Conservancy to PETA, myself, for a number of reasons.

Although... PETA did inspire a comic I like to read to have their own take on "P.E.T.A." (see here: http://techfox.comicgenesis.com/d/20060515.html ) {mischievous SMILE}

Yup! {GRIN}

That's a particularly punny episode in that comic. We hear from several congress critters and other personalities on their take on predation. I particularly like PETA spokesperson Pumala Anderson... and that is the right spelling in the comic. {Chuckle, BIG GRIN}
