Current Music:Now I Lay Me Down ~ October Project

For Brits - The South Bank Show featuring a year in the life of Ian McKellan will now be shown at 11pm tonight (it should have been Sunday but was ousted by the football). Some of this will take place on the LOTR set during the last ROTK pick-ups so it should be good.

Many thanks to aquila0212 for providing the link to this site:

http://www.vhf.org/childrenspeak

Afraid its only works for high speed connections. It is Voices of the Holocaust:The Children Speak - four holocaust survivors relate their memories on various themes and Elijah narrates an introduction to each of Max's talks (with the exception of two). Its very moving and as aquila0212 says its good to see him getting involved with something like this. And his voice is perfect for this - always so clear. It occurred to me how good he'd be narrating a long, in-depth tv documentary.

rakshi met Sean Astin at Origins last weekend and she mentioned something very exciting - Sean is trying to persuade Elijah to do a 'project' (presumably a film) with him - he's read Lij the first six pages and is waiting for him to read the rest. It would be so great to see them work together again.

Rediscovered this gorgeous pic recently - and can't for the life of me remember how I came by it so if its yours, anyone, please let me know and I'll give you the credit you deserve. Do you need something like Photoshop to get this effect? I have MGI Photosuite but don't seem able to do it with that.

Thanks for the pimpage, luv - - {{{NotAlone}}} and if anyone is having trouble finding Lij's narration, you can go to my lj, where there are detailed instructions. Yes, that is a gorge pic, and one I've never seen before!

I heard about this yesterday and tried to get into it. That is one of the most complicated web sites I've ever seen, and with my dial-up, it's impossible to view. I have faster speed at work, but can't really listen to it there.

About the Sean/Lijah work, God, I would SOO love to see them in a movie together. Or for that matter, I'd love to see Dom/Billy/Sean/Elijah and any combination thereof in a movie. Of course, it'd have to have Lij to really make it worth it for me!

What a beautiful photo. It looks like it is from the interview where he and Sean had their wigs on but were in street clothes. There was a bay or something in the back ground.
I can do that effect with Piture It! Publisher. If you have a photograph that you would like done like this, send it to me.

Oh dear - that sounds like something I HAVEN'T GOT!! It's mad, I have loads of video tapes of Lij's programmes plus another load of clips on my pc - but as soon as I hear of something I don't have I'm desperate to find it!! Would that be the one where Sean was talking about Elijah's eyes, how he'd spent so long looking into them etc? I'd heard about this but haven't been able to get hold of it.

Thats the one! "His eyes are like looking into the ocean with the sun in an eclipse." (Something like that..) Then Sean said that he spent a lot of time looking into Elijah's eyes. Lij got all embarrased. They were *so* adorable.

SQUEE...

I have this on disc, I'll try to find it.

Wow, agree very nice picture of him and what scene was this? Is it in the FOTR/TT behind the scenes on the DVDs? I've not seen that one yet? :)

Thanks for the link! The whole website is thought-provoking. I'm glad Elijah did it - he doesn't seem to go for flashy stuff, and I really like that of him.

Gorgeous pic - and yeah, it can be done in photoshop too. I've got several of Elijah that I did that way, and I love them!
