Deagol posted a correction to the IPL interview article - the copyright date for "Bilbo's Last Song" is 1976, not 1977.

Hugh's memory is not precise on dates, and detailed records don't exist any more, so the 1977 date was derived from the fact that the "Map of Middle-earth" puzzle is copyright 1977, and has an item number of 96T121 (the last three digits being the catalog number, which increased every time a new puzzle was produced.) The item number for "Bilbo's Last Song" is T128, so it was theoretically released much later. But all of my copies also have the copyright date of 1976. Have to go with the 1976 date, as that is the only official record remaining!

Weta ran an online Q&A session with PJ and GdT about the upcoming Hobbit movie(s). The full transcript is currently available online here:

Kind of scary all the talk about the second movie. Have to see what comes of the Estate lawsuit (I suspect that, given only the movie rights to H and LOTR were sold all those years ago, that there is much room to dispute what they can do in that filler movie.)

Battledore (a Finnish heavy metal band) has a new album coming out soon - "The Last Alliance". Their lyrics are pretty much all drawn from the works of Tolkien.

Metal-Queens.com just interviewed them. Love the promo shot of the band!

Carl Hostetter spotted this on eBay and passed on the link in case anyone is interested (perhaps not to buy at that price, but the letter and signature are fully legible in the pictures provided so you can read and enjoy it.) Neither he nor I am affiliated with the seller.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=140235215675

A quote from the letter:
"I am personally averse to dramatizations of my work, especially of The Lord of the Rings, which is too long for reproduction without severe cutting and editings: in my view destructive, or at best severely damaging to a complicated but closely-woven story."
