Paris, Tori, Return of the King

I'm really yearning for Paris atm. Not entriely sure why I'm wanting to be there more now than I usually am but I'm finding myself missing the city, my French friends, the shops, the food and the general Frenchness and beauty of the place. I really have to sort out a trip sooner or later when I get some spare time and some spare cash :-(

I seem also to be listening to a hell of a lot of Tori Amos at present. I've fallen to sleep to her for the last few nights and she's be an incredibly soothing influence on me recently. I love her voice, the meoldies and the lyrics. I have a number of favourite female singers (Beth Gibbons, Shirley Manson, Kate Bush, Bjork, P J Harvey, etc) but Tori keeps rising to the top of the pile. I think it helps that she often reminds me of an old flame (both in looks and memorable songs of the time) but then again that's so long ago that it shouldn't make a difference anymore.

CD-WOW have The Return of the King DVD on special offer at £8.99 including P&P. I knew holding off buying it when it first came out would pay off :-p So if any of you still want a copy I guess now's the time to make that purchase!!!

The Welcome to Sunny Florida CD/DVD should actually be arriving with me any day. I ordered it at the weekend.

I've managed to catch Tori live a couple of times. Once on tour back in the mid 90's and the second time at Glastonbury Festival. She is amazing and someone I'd certainly like to see live again.

Thanks for the link to hereinmyhead. I'll check that out later.

Mmmm, Lord of the Rings! Let me know when you finally give in and buy it, then I will come over and help you drool over Legolas :p

Return of the King
Don't rush out and buy this special offer. I'm sure it's still lacking the extra hour of footage that they cut from the film. If you read the books you'll have been painfully aware of the missing sections. They're still waiting to release the full "extended" (complete) version. They want to milk it for all it's worth, and then some, just like they did for the last two films.

Re: Return of the King
Already ordered it - would have done in any case as I like having the original 'cinema' version as well as having the extended editions. Sad aren't I!

I'll also no doubt go out and buy the extra-extra-special trilogy exntended directors whotsit when they no doubt release that with extra footage.
