Bofur is just as adorkable as the rest, isn't he? Gotta love that hat, even if people say it makes him look Mongolian. He even has his musical instrument, as he does in the book. Some behind-the-scenes footage of the unexpected party shows the Dwarves playing music- Dwalin appeared to have some sort of stringed instrument, possibly a viol. I think the whole scene in Bag end is going to be hilarious. I do hope the scene of Kili and Fili turning cartwheels in the entry hall makes it into the movie.
Bofur, by the way, is the brother of Bombur, a.k.a. the fat guy, and their cousin is Bifur. They are not related to Thorin and the rest, and are not descended from the Longbeards. They are ordinary, working class dwarves, who joined the Company partly because they want to seek their fortune and partly because they were told the beer was free. At least, that's what the descriptions on the back of their action figure boxes says. XP
Updates on the graffittiing (how on earth do you spell that?) college cars: apparently, Alpha Lambda Delta was involved. I saw today a car painted like this: "Alpha Lambda Delta loves Sigma Chi." I could have sworn it was Zeta Tau Alpha. Anyway.
Also on the subject of painting cars, what is with the word "Mafia" written on them? I'm not entirely sure I want to know, however. That some Greek organization is involved is pretty much a given.
And why are Halloween decorations still up around town? Usually, those are yanked down November 1st and plastic turkeys and stuff like that go up, if it isn't already blow-up Santas, candy canes, and liberal application of blinking icicle lights.
Back to The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, the fourth TV spot has come out! I can't wait! I can't wait! I can't wait!
In Pace Christi,
