Somehow I *knew* someone would point that out to me...CrazyTongueLaugh but it's so easy to laugh after the fact. I wouldn't have wanted to be James Cameron in the autumn of 2007...nor would I want to be him now, in the lead-up to "Avatar."

Seeing as LOTR had the same Oscar luck as Titanic...I wish we could say that this was good luck.. but I take the opposite view: the production for LOTR went like clockwork, barring the fact that a lot had to done in a very short amount of time.

Recently I expressed concern on DelToroFilms.com about Guillermo's weight. I was joking with Parker and I ended up saying that maybe Guillermo simply wants to follow PJ's weight trajectory, so his luck would be similar. Like PJ, he'd assume Bombur-like proportions while filming his Tolkien adaptation masterpice, nearly kill himself in the process, then go on to win a bucketload of Oscars and vast commerical success, and then be "the king of the world" in Hollywood, free to do as he pleases, and just as rapidly he'd lose the the weight after that.:)

Yeah, Voronwe...I just hope it isn't another waiting period for a day that just passes with nothing. False alarms...we've had enough of those.God, I wish I could know just what the heck is going on...
