BLOWING UP BAG END

Only three more days to go until my first Official Movie Guide to The Hobbit goes on sale...

Impatient Tolkien fans looking for a way to pass the time till their copy arrives, may like to pop down to the local party shop, buy a couple of thousand balloons and create their very own blow-up Bag End.

Here's all you have to do....


So, even Middle-earth, it seems, is not immune to the effects of inflation!

I don't even know what to say about this Blown Up Bag End - I've never seen anything like it! Congratulations (in 3 days) on your Hobbit Movie Guide - I'm sure I'll be ordering for Christmas!

I know what a big supporter you are of animation...when you have a minute, I'd be honored if you would take a look at my son's Kickstarter page for his CalArts senior film project, "The Claytheist". (he's got 3 days to go too), and leave a comment if you like it. :)
Disney started CalArts back in the '60's - my son has had a wonderful experience there and couldn't be happier or more fulfilled as an artist. Now the really hard work begins!
Here's the link: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1761596428/the-claytheist// (If it won't open, you can also just type: opentheportal.com into your address bar, and it will take you to his page).
Thanks!

I can see an official approach to the author for signed copies. I have people slobbering in anticipation at the mere thought of it at this end !

Wendy - Enjoyed the clever trailer for David & Micha's film. I wish them great good luck and look forward to seeing more. CalArts was very important to Walt Disney and (along with the studio bearing his name) is his legacy.

Eudora – I wouldn't like to be around when all those balloons were being popped!

Michael – Yes, leaves you breathless!

Boll – Usual (mates) rates apply! ;)

Quite a feat of artistry! Hope that's not the same clothes he was wearing for the entirety.

Ordered the book ages ago - glad the wait is nearly over.

I won't make any comments about his small son running in with a pin and letting him down...

Thank you Brian for your kind words and for taking a peek at the Kickstarter - they did it! Goal was reached about five minutes before the deadline. Breathing a sigh of relief for them. :)

I'm so glad. I would really have liked to have helped financially, but unfortunately wasn't able to do so at the point when they needed it... Hope I can give some other form of encouragement later.
