music: Salvadah Akarah, "Trip"

For New Orleans news: oulangi has a bunch of fabulous links, while cleolinda and almostnever provide more links including analysis that is incredibly depressing. Our government can't find it's way out of paper bag, apparently. Or, as Tom Tomorrow says: I guess this is what you get when you elect leaders ideologically committed to the notion that government isn't good for anything. Yep. A government that isn't good for anything.

In minor good news, artists from the independent music site CDBaby are donating all profits from a batch of albums to the Red Cross.

Fandom Stuff to cheer us up:
  • a giant picspam of LOTR actors (and Liv) hugging

  • Orlando on the beach with swim trunks that slip way down past his tattoo

  • gorgeous scans of Viggo in "Mean" magazine (more at viggo_daily )

  • Dom and Evi being sprayed with water from the LOST dvd

  • E!Online interviews with LOST cast at the DVD release party. Naveen slashes himself like mad and Dom says he likes to keep his private life private.

  • Dom in Newsweek:
    Do you read what they say online?
    I check out all these scandalous rumors about me and Elijah Wood having beautiful sex with each other.

    Are they true?
    About Elijah and me being boyfriend and boyfriend? Absolutely true. We've been together for about nine years. I wooed him. No, I just like a lot of stuff—I like that someone says one thing and it becomes fact. It's kind of fun.

  • cologne_chick has a picture of Billy in Germany (he's filming the Flying Scotsman with Jonny Lee Miller)

  • On a Clear Day article, with a very nice review of the film, and Billy says he'll swim the Channel for his 40th birthday

  • Lovely long interview with Elijah in the Independent (UK) including news of his next film projects and Simian records

  • Elijah will be on US TV, "The View" on Sept. 8 and TRL on Sept. 9

  • hobbitfanatic has reports and pictures from the Fellowship Festival, with Craig, Mark, Richard and Tanya, Sandro, Kirin, Royd Tolkien, and -- lobelia321! -- Jed Brophy, caught on film with his shirt off doing a haka dance.

  • Lotrips FQF Requests up -- a challenge list of LOTRiPS requests. It seems like a fairly open challenge, lots of interesting pairings, a good chance for people to stretch a little.

  • Great list of Dom, Billy and Elijah fandom links

  • capra_maritimus has a list of Billy/Dom/Ali and Billy/Dom/Ali/Evie fic

  • Every Fanfic Ever Written! (or a reasonable facsimile thereof). A funny description of most kinds of FPS. Example:

    THE EXPLANATORY FIC

    (CHARACTERS do something interesting. CAMERA fades to black in the middle of it.)
    CAMERA: Well, I'm done here.
    AUTHOR: Like hell you are.

<3 all

Great set of links! The Lost videos won't work for me, though :-(

Also, this is what you get when you elect leaders who believe that the future doesn't matter, because the Rapture is coming annnnnny minute now... or now. Or maybe.... Well, right quick.

How much do I love that Dom says he wooed Elijah? Dude, we've all (or the sane amongst us, anyway), said it's none of our business and it doesn't matter either way. I love that he takes the same attitude. But still, I love that he says he wooed Elijah. It's so toppish of him. *G*
