Thanks. And thank you for letting me know, Darth Nenya!

V for Vendetta is in her list of credits on the site. But, alas, it is old news.

Hi Beth,

You're totally right. While I've known about both for a while and posted them on Mr. Christensen's page I made no mention of it here in the blog. Thank you for pointing that out to me!
I'm looking forward to The Decameron! I'm not the biggest Alba fan so I might wait for that one on DVD.

Thanks again!
