Need more soundtracks. Need them now!

Having just started a “normal” 9-5 job again I have discovered I’m in need of more orchestral soundtracks from either films or games. Whilst my iPod has over 70GB of music, a large part of it is unsuitable as it’s with lyrics which distracts me too much or, worse, could lead me to sing along. […]

The Hobbit

I’m currently listening to ‘The Hobbit’ written by J. R. R. Tolkien and read by Rob Inglis. It’s this version. Over the years I’ve always insisted that I don’t like audiobooks much and have only ever listened to a few which includes Stephen Fry reading Harry Potter, several Patricia Cornwell ones, Stephen Hawking, and the […]

Mini Harry Potter films review

Started talking about this on MSN and seeing that Harry Potter films seem to come up in conversation far too often, I might as well copy it to here and link to it in the future. Saves the lazy me having to type it again. First one is good for being a happy/cheery kids movie. […]

I’m not having a good day.

Sometimes I do wonder if I’m just too cynical or the world just becomes a worse place to live. Gillian Gibbons has been released early and handed over to British officials in Sudan after being jailed for letting her class name a teddy bear Muhammad. I know I’m pretty much on my own with this […]

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix trailer

There is a new trailer out for Harry Potter and the order of the Phoenix. It’s taking a few elements from the first trailer, but is a lot better. This is based on my favourite Harry Potter book, the idea behind Dolores Umbridge, the desperation that led to the forming of Dumbledore’s Army and the […]

The Harry Potter challenge – Book 1

A friend who has never read a Harry Potter book before [shocking, I know] asked me heaps of details about them the other day and I realised that I hadn’t read them in a while and actually forgot quite a few details. Thus the ‘Harry Potter challenge’ was born. I will try and read all […]

50 things NOT to do at Hogwarts

This is stolen from drmike’s blog. Thankyou. :) 50 Things NOT to do at Hogwarts 1. I will not poke Hufflepuffs with spoons, nor will I insist that their House colors indicate that they are “covered in bees”. 2. No matter how good a fake Australian accent I can do, I will not imitate Steve […]

“Does Harry Potter die in the Order of the the Phoenix?”

I find it very interesting what people are searching for to reach this blog and I reall have had the most random stuff. Lately most of my traffic seems to be coming from people searching for David and Victoria Beckham and the term Size Zero which is obviously related to my Size Zero post. What […]

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

Now I love the Harry Potter books, especially the later ones and yes, I have been out in the middle of the night to get them when they were released. Yes, you can all call me mad and sad. :P None of the films really had me impressed so far and I didn’t even see […]
