an eBay auction that made me laugh...

Subject: an eBay auction that made me laugh...

and laugh, and laugh...

A link for the truly curious is below, but here is the relevant text. The auction is for a 1968 Skiatook, Oklahoma (USA) phone book.

John Ronald Reuel Tolkien spent a majority of his time in Skiatook writing his second draft of The Lord Of The Rings, a fact paid tribute to by Skiatook's inclusion in the feature film The Lord Of The Rings: The Return Of The King as portraying the city of Minas Tirith. Strangely, all footage shot on location was used only in the film's theatrical trailer, and never saw light in the final cut of the film, an Ontario-based city instead appearing. The original footage- with commentary by Tolkien- is available on the upcoming "One Ring Edition" of the DVD.


Can't wait to hear that commentary...
