The Two Towers Platinum Edition!

November 14, 2003

Next Tuesday really should be today.  Why is this, do you ask?  Well, let me tell you:  LOTR The Two Towers Platinum Edition comes out next Tuesday!  That's right ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, hobbits and elves, Valar and Maiar, the moment you have been waiting for is upon us.   Four DVDs of action-packed excitement and soul-inspiring acting and lovely added features along with over 40 minutes of additional footage integrated into the movie.  (If you can't tell, I am excited :grin:)  And then about a month later we get to see the final culmination of Peter Jackson's vision.   How could anyone not be excited?

BTW, THE USED ROCKS!  (I saw these guys in concert at EdgeFest)

This last week and a half have been pretty cool.  I watched Matrix Revolutions last Wednesday night.  I thought it was pretty cool.  Not the movie I would have written, but still a good movie.  I took off Thursday from work, and I already had Friday off from working 9 hour days, so I enjoyed a nice 4-day weekend.  I bought some new dumbells (35lb) with birthday money (Thanks Grandma and Grandpa W.)  I could do too many curls with the 30lb dumbells I already had, so it was time to upgrade.  Heather, Holly (Heather's 13yr old sister), and I went to the Wildlife World Zoo on Saturday.   We all watched Elf later that day.  Will Ferrell is just too damn funny for words.  If you haven't seen them yet, I highly recommend Zoolander and Old School (and of course everyone remembers Mustafa from Austin Powers, right?)  Elf was a funny movie, parts of it were a little too "mushy" for my tastes, but the funny parts were plenty and very entertaining.

Jake's (my li'l bro) Birthday was last Friday.  Happy Birthday again Jake!   I can't believe that he is 7 years old...  

It rained Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday this week.  The temperature here in Phoenix is awesome right now.

Linkage: Since I'm all hyped up on the LOTR stuff, here is a great link for you all: Encyclopedia of Arda.  This site is an awesome reference for everything inTolkein's universe.  It combines the information from LOTR, the Silmarillion, and other Tolkein sources into a referenced and easy to search database.  Good stuff.
