Rolling Down A Hole With Glee

The news I got on Twitter this morning made me as happy as the Mirkwood Elves:

Yeah, Peter Jackson is going to direct "The Hobbit." Nothing against all the other folks who were atached to direct, or teased about in the media. But for anyone else but Jackson to take "The Hobbit" home never made sense to me. You can read the exclusive here.

I've loved these stories since I was a very little kid. My older brother Jeff had the vinyl album from the Rankin/Bass version of the story, and we wore it out listening.

I'm thrilled for the movie to be moving forward with Jackson at the helm. I'm sure this guy would be pretty happy too:
