Cali talks Cannes Party!

By Calisuri@theonering.net


From Xoanon…


BIG VERSION OF PICTURE
http://www.theonering.net/movie/images/cannes/0029a.jpg

Calisuri called me a few times during the LOTR party, literally...I think he wanted to taunt me.

He called to tell us all about the experience of being there! He said that there was a full Hobbit hole set re-constructed! walk past that and there were Dark Riders! mounted! Actual horses and swords and everything! He also said there were massive pillars with bird-like skeletal features on them.

He mentioned that many many people were walking around in costune, hobbits and orcs and all types of men from different lands. He tried to make the Men of Gondor and a band of Orcs fight, but they weren't into it (I do think the champagne was free and flowing quite a bit...if only you could hear his excitement).

He spoke with many LOTR cast and crew members, including Clair Raskind, Richard Taylor, PJ, and more. He said there were fireworks going off outside the castle and everyone was having a marvelous time!

He will have something up for you to read soon.

Gordon Campbell: On The Nelson Fire And Climate Change

The Nelson fire has been a useful warning of things to come, given how climate change will (a) increase the likelihood of reduced rainfall and drought-like conditions in many parts of New Zealand, which – obviously – will raise (b) the fire danger and (c) the cost of providing the communities at risk with the enhanced firefighting capabilities that they’re going to need.
