Today on Regis, the Trivia Question of the day(referring to yesterday's show) was, "Who wrote the LOTR?". As a sad commentary of the poor education system of the US, the lady got the questions wrong. She lost a 5 day, 4 night all expenses paid trip to Florida. However, my suggestion was that she be locked in a cell with a hungry Balrog! (be nice now -Xo)

Nope, it's just somebody jumping on the LOTR gravy train. The link for the music is here and you'll notice it doesn't give ANY details. Not the Shore score, I'll be bound. Probably the Bakshi film from the 70s or something. Word is the real new soundtrack will be out 'closer to the film's release date.'

Hollywood may have successfully weathered the threat of strike action during negotiations with the Screen Actors Guild this summer, but the British film industry may not prove so fortunate. After a year of negotiations, actor's union Equity has made the decision to pursue strike action over disagreements concerning bonus payments.

At times like these we must look around at our loved ones, friends and family and really cherish every moment and DO NOT take anyone or anything for granted.
Answering emails this weekend my heart skipped a beat everytime I replied to a TORN fan who wrote up a Lincoln Center report, thankfully I did get replies from all of them.
I'd just like to say that I am now taking the time to thank my friends and family here on TORN, all the staffers who do wonderful work and truly are the backbone of this place. I love you and and appreciate EVERYTHING that is done here, you are my family.
