Actor Elijah Wood has curated a charity album titled Elysium: A Benefit for the Art of Elysium, showing he has good taste—and not just in music.

The Art of Elysium is a non-profit organization that helps bring actors, artists, and musicians to visit sick children in hospitals. They also hold workshops for the kids in disciplines like comedy, fashion, music, and creative writing. Even the most cynical bloggers will have trouble finding something wrong with this.
