Yes, there is a Santa Claus!

The rumour was true, according to this catalunyan site which links to an extinct german webpage. These are professional sources if i've ever seen any, so it has to be true: Stanley Kubrick actually was, at some point of those crazy, crazy sixties, planning to film his own adaptation of Tolkien's Lord Of The Rings with the beatles as lead actors. Starring George as Gandalf, Paul and Ringo as Frodo and Sam and John The true source of this entropic spiral of wierd information is Peter Jackson himself, the guy who makes movies about hobbits smoking joints.

Myself, i never really got past chapter five of the first book of the trilogy, but sort of enjoyed the appendixes. Also wasn't very interested in seeing the movies, i'm more of a star wars geek myself. Would have gladly seen the kubrick version though, had it ever existed.

Does this answer your question, Mitko? You got me curious there!
