Greenleaf: Not Just A Pretty Elf
the release of his debut album, "Ooops
I Killed an Orc Again", Legolas Greenleaf is poised
to become the next big thing. His music has been described
as experimental pop, alternative jazz, out of this world
rock. However, some critics say that his teenybopper appeal
is the only reason why the album has been on top of the Billbored
Charts since its release. In an effort to prove his critics
wrong, PopToonz has been invited to join the Legolas
World Tour for a week. And so, my quest to find the talent
in Greenleaf begins
On the road with Legolas
and his band Elfhead
Day 1: First meeting with The Elf. All I could say was hello.
Day 2: Gig day - Wellington, NZ. Haldir's dance number was
a surprise. Legolas ain't that bad either.
Day 3: Interview with The Elf got cancelled. It was manicure
Day 4: Gig day - Ithilien, Middle Earth. Elfhead's pre-gig
ritual: braiding each other's hair. Haldir was forced to sign
a new contract with a no-dancing clause.
Day 5: Legolas looking smashing after a trip to the hairdresser.
He was humming a strange but catchy tune. He said it was a
new song he was writing entitled "Idhren
Day 6: Gig day - Rivendell, Middle Earth. Lord Elrond was
in the audience. Legolas sure could get the crowd going. Lord
Elrond threw his tiara on the stage during the song "You
Day 7: Last day with the band. Legolas sat down with me for
a chat. He was looking splendid in a bedazzled outfit specially
designed by Puff Strider (a.k.a. P. Wingfooty).
what about you and Arwen?
"Alas! Alas!", cried Legolas, and in his fair
elvish face there was great distress.*
Sorry Legolas. Is it true that you had a little altercation
with M-Sync at the Granny Awards?
"Have you heard nothing Lord Elrond has said? M-Sync
must be destroyed!"
Any truth to the rumor that you're doing a collaboration
with the Bubble Gum Pop Queen herself Britknee Spears?
"She is no mere Bubble Gum Pop Queen. She is Britknee,
the next Madonnah. You owe her your allegiance!"
What's your beauty secret?
"Crebain from Dunland!"
Any message to your fans?
"And you have my bow."
That's generous of you Leggy. Anything you want to say
to your critics?
"Don't hate me because I'm beautiful!"
Yeah, you tell 'em Legorgeous! Thanks for your time.
