I just don’t understand the cruel contraptions that humanfolk come up with to hurt helpful gnomes. A distant cousin of mine, Legolas, fell for the watering can baited trap and only has one hand to show for it.

I probably shouldn’t even be providing a link over to the wee sadistic folks over at Perpetual Kid. Perhaps if you’d like to issue them a wee complaint we can work together to prevent more harm to gnomekind.

New friends

I know it’s been quite some time since I posted, but I have been traveling quite a bit and don’t have a wee laptop. There are a few pics from the trip through Copenhagen which I’ll get up soon.

Søren and I got along like a house on fire, but I could barely make out a word he said in Danish. The nicest moments were standing across the street from Tivoli in the square watching the lights, the wee street performers, and the strange garbage statues in the shapes of crumpled tin cans and cigarette butts. Why?

Garden gnome saviour?!

I’m not so certain the entire gnome race needs a make-over from this man, Lawrence Llewelyn-Bowen. I certainly like to vary the colours of my tunic from time to time, but heaven forbid I’d need to get down to heavy garden work in any outfit like that.

I do have a wee pair of pick axe cuff-links that I wear each year for a trip back to the birthday tree or the odd special occasion.

Wee came from outer space

I’ve never heard of Jessica Ditto or Lawn Gnomes from Outer Space, so it’s hard to tell if this is another film in the gnomexploitation genre or not. I couldn’t find any other details and the Gnome Acticing Guild (GAG) hasn’t been contacted for any talent as of yet. It’s disappointing when gnome roles go to humans and CGI has made a large dent in the use of actual gnome actors on film sets.

I did hear that James McAvoy is the confirmed lead in Gnomeo and Juliet, and that Guillermo Del Toro, who directed Pan’s Labyrinth and Hellboy is taking on The Hobbit. I just love a wee film.
