Hey guys, not sure if this is allowed, but figured other hardcore fans might be interested in taking these one-of-a-kind art pieces off my hands! I'm selling some of my Lord of the Rings Masterpieces Hand Drawn trading cards. These are totally drawn by hand DIRECTLY on the card by various comic book artists: THERE IS ONLY ONE OF EACH CARD IN EXISTENCE!

These chase cards are in perfect condition...out of the pack and into a protective sleeve.
I'll likely be selling more of my collection because I'm getting married in August!
My fiance and I hate the idea of selling them, but hopefully they'll find good homes!
Thanks so much!

Subject:OT: the Project Fiver Petition
Mood: hopeful

I'm passing this on to all Tolkien fans, esp. those who attend Dragoncon in Atlanta and know Melissa. But even if you don't, won't you please consider signing the petition? It would mean a lot to her and her husband Chris.


Greetings, it's Chris Kern (aka Bill the Pony)

As most of you know, Melissa "Fiver" Kern has been diagnosed with ALS, commonly known as Lou Gehrig's Disease. In September, she marched with fellow Lord of the Rings fans in the annual DragonCon parade, but six months later, she needs help walking, dressing and using stairs.

I wanted to do something for Melissa, to show her the impact that she's had on people, in the Lord of the Rings communities and beyond. To that end, I have put together a petition online. I call it "Project FIVER" (after her name on the community websites), and it is a petition to have New Line cast her as a Hobbit extra in THE HOBBIT. We don't know the course her disease will take, so she worries that she won't be around to see the movies in theaters, so this was the next best thing.

If you wouldn't mind, please sign the petition. Feel free to share the link with others.


Thanks for being a good friend to her.

Subject:Elijah...the true geek
Mood: geeky

This is an article that was in the back of Entertainment Weekly....it cracked me up!!

The Joel Stein Show: Slay Trippers

There are a few things one should never admit in print. I've already owned up to watching porn, being bad in bed, listening to Bruce Hornsby, and having a mullet. But everyone has limits, and, at best, I will imply that I am somewhat familiar with the basic rules of Dungeons & Dragons. I may have even owned metal figurines and about 50 official books that I may or may not have kept in a box I painted black with stenciled silver lettering reading "Welcome to the World of Dungeons & Dragons." I also may not have realized it was still in my parents' basement the first time I brought a girl down there. I may hate that box like no man has ever hated a box.

But somehow being into The Lord of the Rings is now acceptable, so I thought it might be okay to revisit my involvement with role-playing games. I called Wizards of the Coast, the company that makes Dungeons & Dragons, and asked them to send an expert to run a game for me. Then I asked all my friends if they'd play. When that didn't go so well, I called the man who made it acceptable to take the threat of orcs seriously, Elijah Wood. Actors, it turns out, have quite a bit of free time.

As I flew to Los Angeles to play D&D with Elijah Wood, I realized that EW editors don't realy have a firm grasp on what makes a good story. However, with Elijah Wood playing, I was able to get several people to come, including my friend Adam, Elijah's publicist's brother, and a woman named Ali, whose presence officially doubled the number of women who had ever played D&D. The guy the company sent to be in charge of our soiree was Jonathan Tweet, 37, who designed the latest version of the game. Jonathan was not at all what we expected. Sure, he was geeky and balding and heavy and told us he invented his own linguistics, but he was married.

Jonathan, who was our Dungeon Master (just one of many terms I once used regularly and now realize sound homoerotic), told us we had gone to see Venor the druid to get instructions on an adventure, but his hut was burned down and there were arrows with a mysterious substance on their tips littered about and a mute girl pointing down a set of stairs. Jonathan didn't laugh once during this speech. In fact, Jonathan, who obviously got into the whole dungeon mastering thing as a power trip, didn't really like when we talked about things out of our wizard and druid characters. The only time we got to digress was when room service came, and a maid opened up a bottle of Coke and asked Elijah, who is not a particularly tall man, if it was his. "Is this for little boy?" she said. The room got very quiet. "Yes, for little boy," she repeated, handing it to him. "I'm 21!" Elijah yelled. "I haven't heard 'little boy' since I was 10." I offered to roll the 20-sided die to see if I could kill the maid.

We returned to the game, now slightly uncomfortable, when we came across a female goblin, whom, without bragging, I'll just say that I helped take care of. This greatly excited Elijah. "Let's loot the bitch. Can I slit her throat?" he asked. Ali looked a little startled. This is why guys usually don't let women play. Men work out a lot of anger issues when they're alone. Sometime those anger issues stem directly from comments made by housekeepers.

After the game, Jonathan asked Elijah to sign his character sheet, which I feared would be put up on their website. I haven't felt this much guilt since I screened my mom's last call. But I felt a lot less guilty when, for the next hour, Elijah and his publicist's brother stayed in my room talking about videogames and collectible toys, some of which may have been called Pogs and Kubricks. It was like my remote control didn't work and I was stuck on a public access show. "You mention anything to a geek that is made in limited edition and they've got to have it," he explained. "I get shaky when I think about things like that there's an Amelie Kubrick!" I'm pretty sure, seriously, that he was talking about an action figure from the movie Amelie.

After they left, I remembered all the things I once collected: baseball cards, those bogus CDs that were somehow plated with gold, phone numbers of women I had no shot with. But I've matured into a lazier type of geek who annoys people by collecting obscure facts and acting superior about them. I'm sure, though, that I could easily revert back to that place, even playing D&D, if I was in with the right crowd and lost my ability to ever have sex again.

Subject:"Gollum's Song" Music Video Up For Grabs!!!
Mood: tired

You can download it from the frontpage of TORN. I'd give you my opinion of it, but it's still downloading - shouldn't be much longer though (huzzah for fast college networks ;p).

I'd be interested to hear what you think of it - I've still gotta let the song itself grow on me. For some reason I've had a hard time meshing the song/style with Lord of the Rings...they just don't...fit together to me. :/ Oh well, time will tell, I suppose..

Bye for now and enjoy! ^_^b

Subject:january ym

More Elijah goodness - an interview where he talks about Frodo in the upcoming films and then some other Elijah randomness. Just go here. There's also an Orli article and a poll to vote for them against one another in a few different categories. He's going to be on the cover of their January issue, and I'm thinking there's going to be two covers. One Elijah, one Orlando. I didn't look around and check that much out, but...yeah. I think.

I'm going to make some hobbit icons this afternoon if anyone has any requests or ideas, I'd love them...I have no idea what to do. Alright, that's it! I'm done!

Help me, Sarah!

I reeeeeally, really wanna make some icons for LJ, but every time I make one it's too big no matter how much I fiddle with the optimization settings. Yours all look so awesome! How do you make them? It is all in how many frames/effects the animation has? I'd assume that'd make the file bigger... Every time I try to make the file smaller, naturally, the picture/colors get all distorted.

Could you post a little animation studio tutorial or something 'cause I'm never gonna get the hang of this! :(
