I expect most people already have this, but I've recently sent a YouSendIt link to a friend for 'A Magical Journey' which was originally on the hollywood.com site - so if anyone would like to download it, here you go:
http://s39.yousendit.com/d.aspx?id=39K0HKHY3RMCD1ON1VDU4563UA

Its a big file, approx 23mb - Lij's bits are only quite small (there is no way to say that without sounding rude) - the rest is scenes from FOTR and IanM talking. It can also be downloaded from Elijah Illusions but I don't think the quality is quite as good - its a smaller file so may be better for those on dial-up:

The day I found this clip was the day I met Elijah for the very first time. No, I'm not talking about the first time I met him in person - this was the first time I'd ever seen him as himself as opposed to as Frodo. And such a perfect introduction - typical geeky Lij followed by lovely, articulate Lij talking so passionately about hobbits. Every time I watch this it takes me back to that day.

Just to be sure: this is the interview which starts with Elijah singing the Hollywood.com tune, right?

Yes, that's the one - I've never known if he made that up or if was an actual tune :)

Hehee! Neither have I! And what prompted him to sing it; was he asked or did he just start singing for no particular reason? I've always assumed it was an existing tune though.

This was simply wonderful to watch. I had never seen it before, being a latecomer to the fandom, and I'm delighted to have the chance to see it now. Thank you so much.

The smaller version won't download. And I wouldn't even think of trying the larger file. ;<( Does he sing normally in this? I've only heard him sing in a clowning manner, never seriously.

No - he's being very geeky. I think the only time I've heard him sing normally is on a track from Viggo's 'Pandemonium in America' cd - not 'Half Fling' which, although absolutely adorable is about as far from normal as you can get - but a song called 'Gone' - its quite weird, mostly instrumental with a gorgeous mandolin, but I love it. You can actually download both these tracks from Elijah's Illusions - as they're only audio files you might be able to do this without too long a wait - they're on this page: http://www.hathawaymix.org/shelly/websites/elijah/audio.htm

Oh, of course. I forgot all about "Gone." I have all of Viggo's CDs. A bit strange at first, but they have grown on me.
