Only three feet tall

If I were smart, I'd've just read the link and moved along. But no, I'm a moron, so I clicked on it. I managed to avoid hearing but a few seconds of it in years past, but I was intrigued.

Lost footage?

I'm a sucker for the lure of the forbidden, what can I say?

Via the fine folks at PCL LinkDump, I give you the Lost Footage of The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins.

Oh, you're welcome.

I'll buy that for a dollar...

A while back I hit a thrift store with my dad, and I came across not one, but two copies of the Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band original movie soundtrack.

Hot diggety, I'm sure you're saying to yourself.

I still have some love for that movie despite it being horrible on par with Xanadu. And of course, I love that movie, too. I have no shame. Plus, I had the soundtrack (to both, actually), and I listened to it a lot.

I bought the better looking of the two albums (along with some other records -- they were a buck a piece), and when I looked inside, I found both records in their original sleeves, as well as the super-mega-radical poster.

Gaze upon my poster ye mighty and despair:


Man, if I wasn't already married, I'm sure that poster would make all the women swoon for me. Well, that and the male pattern baldness.

Add to this my swanky Atari cartridge holder, purchased the same day:

Not bad for a day's work.
