Lord of the Rings marathon

The Flea is busy with the plate-spinning routine which is course syllabus writing. Everybody needs to have midterm exams at about the same time but the due dates need to be staggered so I get get everything graded promptly. Now I need to factor in a couple days at end of term lost to Peter Jackson.

Cinephiles who couldn't get enough of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship
of the Ring special edition DVD, which clocked in at 208 minutes and
included scenes not in the theatrical version, will be able to see the epic
on the big screen in all its glory starting on December 5 in about 100 movie
houses in the U.S. and 20 in Canada.

A week later, on December 12, New Line will unspool the special 214-minute
extended edition of The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers. That version is
slated to premiere as a DVD first on November 18 (the DVD of last year's
"official" theatrical release is due out on Tuesday).

And then... I forgot to point out another potential New Line Cinema drain on the wallet of the Flea. Their current auction includes nifty items like Freddy Krueger's blade glove. I don't know how I would work it into this year's pirate costume for Hallowe'en but I would think of something.
