life is good...
So apparently MGM recently announced that they will be making a film version of The Hobbit together with New Line Cinemas sometime within the next few years. No word yet if Peter Jackson will direct (or if Ian McKellen will return as Gandalf), but this is good news for us LOTR freaks. I guess its back to checking theonering everyday for news... ;)

    How exciting! After hunting a bit on, I found the following related post:

    Here is a report on the deliveries of The Hobbit Petition to MGM and New Line on September 22nd. The petition, with the 39116 signatures accumlutated at the time of printing, was delivered to the studios along with a copy of MrCere's open letter to the studios. Though we have had no feedback at this time from New Line, I did receive this very cordial email from Theo Dumont of MGM today, with full permission to pass it along. It should hearten fans a good bit.

    "Dear organizers of The Hobbit Petition:

    We would like to give you the official statement from MGM. Feel free to pass this along to your members and affiliated web sites. Thank you and please see below:

    "Peter Jackson's phenomenal success with The Lord of the Rings trilogy makes him the first and most ideal choice for directing The Hobbit," said MGM. "MGM would be thrilled to collaborate with the Academy Award-winning director on this MGM New Line Cinema production. And, I'm sure to the delight of the 50,000 filmgoers who have petitioned us in recent weeks, demanding we bring this film to fruition, we have had a few initial conversations about the project with Mr. Jackson's representatives."

    Best regards,

    Theo Dumont
    Manager of Public Relations
    Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios Inc."

    Lord of the Rings is my favorite--knowing that the Hobbit is coming will give something to look forward to.

    These are just some of the main looks and long and short formal dresses styles that you can try out. Without the right accessories though, these looks can fall flat, so try and team your prom dresses with the right jewelry. Carry a clutch for all the tiny things that you need to carry with you. The trend of cheap formal dresses is something that is open to interpretation so every dress can be styled to match your sense of fashion.
