& that's it from Wellywood this week--

Well, nearly it. Just one more deadline to meet, before 11.15pm. But having a little rest, and seeing a link to Joni Mitchell (yep! still checking out those Girls Like Us) I found this clip. Spot on at the end of this Hobbit-filled week, with enough conflicts and characters and secrets and revelations for fifteen movies. In the end, what's a girl to believe? Especially if she's read Lorraine Rowlands' thesis, and learned a little more about what working in the industry costs New Zealand film workers (and the health and social welfare systems)--

You might enjoy Joni too. If you've got a drink in hand, are pottering about between #FF tweethearting & FB. If you're a bit lost because Russell Brown finally closed the Public Address Hobbit party in the very early hours of this morning (Islander still in fine fettle). If you've caught up with Gordon Campbell's analysis. If you're a mite confused about it all, remembering especially those John Campbell interviews with Peter Jackson & Philippa Boyens and then with Robyn Malcolm & Tandi Wright. And if Linda Burgess' review of those interviews in the Dompost entertained you and you're disappointed that the review hasn't appeared online at Stuff. Or Ian Mune entertained you. Or Maia's feminist view intrigued you & made you think about some of the power issues. Or you've read Paul Roth's take and feel sad, & placed it alongside the LA Times view of us, and smiled. And if you're happy to be kinda lulled; & after all that raruraru and thinking, to experience the pleasure of a song-sung-from-the-heart.

Thanks, Joni. Not just #FF. #F_FOREVER.
