Poster of Snape for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows 2. You could say it’s just a poster but... It’s more than just a poster. Like, if there’s ever an expression to sum up what Snape is, why he is, to say, without words, that one word... ALWAYS! Isn’t this how you do? Again, again, again. Full Story

I have friends, and I won’t out you Michelle, who’ve always had some “I shouldn’t be feeling this way” quiver about Rupert Grint/Ron Weasley. Never seen it myself…until now. Another Harry Potter moment that will make you cry. Steel yourselves. The cast members were asked to, for Empire (they had AMAZING access to promote the final), sum up their Harry Potter experience in One Word. Full Story

Please don’t go…

If there’s anything that turns me into a total nerd, it’s Harry Potter. And especially now that we’re so close to it being over, just 6 weeks out from the release of the final film, knowing …It all ends. Sob! And then a reader called Sarah J just sent me this, a letter written by Alan Rickman describing his emotions now that he’s said goodbye to Snape… Sob! Jo always says that the enduring message of the series is the power of love. Full Story

And it begins to end…

There have been teasers and posters and interviews etc, but not yet a proper trailer. Until yesterday. Yesterday the first proper trailer was released for HP 7B. Have you? If no, enjoy it here first. This is what I always say about this series and everything that’s associated with it; I call it the Spirit of Excellence. Full Story

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
