My personal musings about anything that gets on my radar screen--heavily dominated by politics.


Good News For Geeks 

er . . . movie fans.

Peter Jackson has signed on to be the producer for The Hobbit, J.R.R. Tolkien's prequel to "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy (which earned almost $3 BILLION worldwide).

The films (Jackson is splitting the story into two films) are due out in 2010 and 2011, which means that Jackson will have, by the final release, stretched Middle Earth out over ten years of filmmaking. That's a better career than a lot of people in Hollywood.

And, if the writers don't come back from strike soon, that'll be a better career than just about anybody.
