Nah, I wouldn't have minded, but I don't have any time off work presently.

I did go to the Two Towers premiere in Wellington back in 2002 when I was much more of a LotR geek than I am now.

I've got a lot of respect for Peter Jackson, but I still think it's grossly overhyped, and a major nuisance getting into and out of town with the buses having to divert and fight their way through crowds of idiot pedestrians.

Meh, it's a once a decade thing, I can live with the nuisance.

I only went because I live on Courtenay Place. I can confidently say that I won't bother again. I'm certainly not prepared to sweat it out in the front row for 9 hours or so to catch a glimpse of someone who gets paid a lot of money to do their job.

I spent the afternoon in the pub which wasn't too bad except it afforded no benefit other than a seat to sit on and a waitress providing beverages.

I won tickets to the world premier of the LOTR, walked the red carpet and sat directly behind PJ during the movie. We also went to the after party. I would have VERY much liked to have done the same with the Hobbit part one and made it a matching set!

ScottJPalmer seems to live in the same apartment building as I do, just on the other side... with a much better view it would seem.

None of those were taken from my apartment :-) It is a little further away.

It is a non event - the only people are there just for the atmosphere either should be in jobs or have jobs that pay them too much.

Yeah dead right, or at school brushing up on their proof reading.
