Now the last time I posted this, a number of people said, "Ok now what do I do with that?" At the time, I pointed them to a number of different packages which dealt with RSS channels and left it at that. Since that time I have written and modified a couple of short scripts which makes use of our RSS information. If you are interested in being able to put our headlines on your site, or want our headlines in your WindowMaker menus, drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will give you a hand.

Wellingtonians want to be part of Lord of the Rings
Hundreds of Wellingtonians have jumped at the chance to be part of the Lord of the Rings trilogy.
The film-makers held auditions for extras at the National Dance and Drama School over the weekend and the queues stretched down the street.
Rings publicist Claire Raskind says they've finished shooting up at Mt Ruapehu and back in the Capital for the next six weeks.
She says they needed to replenish their "background players" cast.
Thanks to Shayne for the tip!

Cast News: Cate Talks Galadriel
5/04/00, 22:49 EST - Xoanon
(Cate) is PERFECT! When you are in the room with her, its like she's glowing. Her voice is perfect, her face is ageless. We are in luck.
Also, Cate hasn't even had time to read the books in her busy schedule. She is listening to them on tape.
A direct quote, on her role as Galadriel, "I hope I do it justice!" She says Peter Jackson is an amazing director. She had some preliminary pics from Alan Lee with her but was unable to retrieve them. She will start filming in a month. She is perfect and queenly! She is a stunning woman. We as Tolkien fans should be honored.
She says elves will have general english accents, but with a welsh-ish sound, like tapping R's as such. Cate hasn't seen the internet preview, so I gave her lordoftherings.net. She hopes to download the internet trailer. That's all! We are blessed!
Thanks to Cuthalion for the impromptu interview!

I was just reading about the new IMAX production opening in many theatres across the country (Canada, and maybe the US too, for all I know) this Friday (May 5th, 2000), replacing Fantasia 2000. It is called 'Journey of Man' with 'Cirque du Soleil' and guess who is narrating it - LOTR's own Sir Ian McKellen! (Gandalf) When DOES that man sleep? Sounds like it should be fantastic...
