Been tired consistently for the last 3 or 4 days. Things are afoot in my life, and as soon as I get a decent nights sleep I'm going to have to sit down and write about them. Not today tho. I have to grab a shower before work and then head off into a delightfully pink dawn so that I can freeze on the way in. Must remember to buy some warmer clothing...

"Upon the whole, I am inclined to think that the far greater part, if not all, of those difficulties which have hitherto amused philosophers, and blocked up the way to knowledge, are entirely owing to our selves. That we have first raised a dust, and then complain, we cannot see."

Lord of the Rings stuff

Get your hands on this month's Empire magazine, which has a 20-odd page insert, with short interviews and pictures of all of the major actors. What's great about the photos is that each one has The Ring in it somewhere. Some people play with it, Andy Serkis has it in the palm of his hands, along with a whole bunch of stuff he obviously just pulled out of his pocket (I've just realised that that's pretty clever) and Sean Bean is wearing it nonchalantly, which made me giggle when I spotted it.

Also, some news on PJ's next project - King Kong. Today's IMDB says:

Lord Of The Rings legend Sir Ian McKellen is eager to reunite with director Peter Jackson on the set of upcoming remake King Kong, after the film-maker hinted there was a role for him. Jackson has reportedly signed up his Lord Of The Rings: The Two Towers star Andy Serkis for a lead role in the highly-anticipated movie, and now McKellen is desperate to join the project. And according the veteran actor, Jackson has already implied a part is available if he wants it. He says, "He did say he might have something for me to do in King Kong, and I hope that's true." Shooting on the film, starring Naomi Watts in the role made famous by Fay Wray, is due to begin next year.
