I took the idea from a wrestling blog I go to, where "Chris Benoit" has been filtered to "Voldemort" since 2007. I didn't get the joke until I actually saw the Harry Potter movies a couple of years ago (yes, I'm late)

You're earlier than me. I don't plan to see them, period.

We took a trip on an old steam train in Scotland last year. Apparently it passed through an area where they filmed Harry Potter stuff. At one point there was an announcement: "Soon we will be passing an island that was Dumbledore's last resting place!" Fair play. Fabulous scenery though...

I'm with you there.  No interest at all. 

You really should try the novels. They were really, REALLY good.  Easily the equal of the Hobbit series or the Chronicles of Narnia.

I've never really been into any of that fantasy themed stuff....which is odd because I love the music of Ronnie James Dio

I have no great love for the franchise, but imho the "Prisoner of Azkaban" movie is a masterpiece, thanks to the director, the great Alfonso Cuaron, and the supporting actors: Alan Rickman ( Cry) )as Severus Snape, Gary Oldman as Sirius Black, and David Thewlis as Professor Lupin are unforgettable.


That is also because POA was the best novel in the series. In almost every case, the book is better than the movie. But that particular scene that you are referring to with Rickman, Oldman, and Thewlis justifies the entire movie franchise.

There is enough light heartedness in the Potter books to keep the stories from getting ponderous. But at the same time, each book gets progressively darker with Deathly Hallows being the darkest. So much so that when a character does crack wise, you laugh because it's just so cathartic.

Gotcha.  Just the whole wizard thing isn't really up my alley.  Most of my reading lately had been autobiographies.

I'm gonna do a song called Frigid Intellectual Housecat. LOL

Look forward to that. Grin

Perhaps you can get Marianne to rap on it. About cat.
Ha! For smb. who can't sing good - cue Mo Tucker in "After hours" - rap would be fitting, yes. Tongue

LOL

I'm between books right now.  I still have Lita Ford's and Paul Stanley's to read, and I just got Sebastian Bach's for Christmas.

I just started Bruce Springsteen's book.  I've been putting it off for a while because it's a long one but now the audio edition is available too and hearing Bruce tell his own story is pretty cool.

I haven't decided if I'm going to read that one yet.  I'm a big fan of his 70s material, but not much after Born in the USA does much for me.  I thought The Rising was decent for what it was, but I didn't think it was the return to glory a lot of people made it out to be.
