Friday was exactly 3 months. Friday was also the day that the DVD for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 was released. And Harry Potter also covered the current issue of Entertainment Weekly. I am an Entertainment Weekly subscriber. Sometimes I worry that my magazines will get stolen depending on the cover stories. Full Story

My friend Michelle C just sent this to me. It’s a deleted scene from Harry Potter 7A, on DVD April 11th, featuring Hermione and Ron throwing rocks into the sea. I agree with the editing, it’s totally superfluous, but I challenge you, as an HP fan, to watch this without giggling, or at least an awww-ish smile. Full Story

A new first look video of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 the end forever and ever and ever was released the other day. I won’t be a nerd and catalogue all the new footage but OMG and SPOILERS, LOOK AWAY IF YOU HAVEN’T READ THE BOOKS. And, um, why haven’t you read the books? Fred!!! It’s so quick you miss it but even in that short time they’re able to draw out the emotion, non? I wonder if I’ll have to carried out of the theatre from grief. Full Story

Lourdes belongs to Gryffindor

Lourdes of Madonna went to school this morning in New York wearing a skull sweater over leggings and a Gryffindor toque. This kind of makes me love her mother a lot. That this girl, who is walking around in a cloud of her own cool, with the clothing line and the blog and the fame and the access, is still as into Harry Potter as she’s into black eyeliner. Full Story

BAFTA Ron Weasley: Rupert Grint

He was there to celebrate Harry Potter’s Outstanding British Contribution To Cinema. Good timing. The BAFTAs are sandwiched between the release of the Deathly Hallows Part 1, which of course happened in November, and Part 2 which is scheduled for July 15th. Is it July 15th yet? Among so many other things, I want to see how it plays out, when Ron and Hermione finally acknowledge their love. Full Story

Harry Potter money buys toilet seats

Favourite photos of the day. Rupert Grint was photographed at Heathrow today carting along a Japanese Toilet Seat. No, for real. According to the photo agency, this Japanese Toilet “offers features such as slow closing, electronic bidet, and warm heated seat”. OMG. Is this what I need for my poo problem? Part of it is totally psychological for me. Full Story

Harry Potter & the Reusable Grocery Bag

My trunk is filled with reusable grocery bags. Maybe too many. I worry that that defeats the purpose. But there’s a smugness to be derived from pulling up at the cash register and declining a plastic option, non? I mean, I can see my own smugness when it happens. And I can’t seem to stop myself. Full Story

Ready for an hour of Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows? Look forward to reading your thoughts, what you loved, what you didn’t, what you wish was included, what fell flat, speculation about the next, and the glittery bodysuit too. As always please keep the racial business of my board. Sometimes I imagine the liveblog is like the Marauder’s Map and there’s a code phrase to open it: I solemnly swear that I’m a f-cking bitch. Full Story

It’s one of my favourite things about JK Rowling – that she truly knows her characters, that they behave the way they do because that is who they are. She doesn’t alter their choices to fit in with a plotline, she doesn’t force their decisions to get to an end goal. This is also the reason why her names always fit so perfectly. Full Story

Please note that the following post is heavy on spoilers. Do you re-read them before you see them? I always do. Because I’m a nerd that way, yes, but also because it’s fascinating to see how even the smallest details are interpreted for the screen. I loved for example how Voldemort completely emasculates Lucius Malfoy when he takes his wand. Full Story

Today is October 19. So we’re exactly a month away. In exactly a month Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 hits theatres. Finally. And not in 3-D. Well good. I don’t give a sh-t that it’s not in 3-D. It’s never been about the D or the E or the F or any of that sh-t for me anyway. Full Story
