PotterCast Called Me!

Wow, everybody. WOW.

I just got off the phone with Melissa, John and Sue about the cover for DH, and WOW! I can't believe I was on PotterCast!!! :D :D :D I was shaky and nervous, though, so I probably didn't do the best job. I just sort of spewed random theories, but I think (or maybe just hope) that they liked my theory that the colloseum on the front of the American edition is the Deathly Hallows, which is behind the veil. I wish I could've had more time to prepare--I'd been thinking about it all day, but when you're put on the spot like that... :S

Oh well, it was fun in any case.

PotterCast: The Movie

I am very, VERY proud to present my response to the PC 78 Blog Challenge. Here it is, the teaser trailer for PotterCast: The Movie! (Based on the novel by Melissa Anelli :P)

It's not great, but you can see it on Google Video in better quality at Tell me what you think!

Congratulations Melissa! (And some PC talk, too)

I only just listened to PotterCast 78, and I have to say I really enjoyed hearing Jenna talk about Equus. It would be cool to see, but I don't live anywhere near London and I'm not really a theater person, anyway. :)

The Canon Conundrums was incredible, as usual. It really planted some new thoughts in my head as to the life of Vapormort, and while I love John's Grindelwald/Deathly Hallows theory I really can't see it happening. Would Jo really name her last book after something like that?

But my favorite part of the cast didn't come until the end. I'd like to send out a big, BIG congratulations--

--to Melissa! She has been accepted to publish a book about the HP fandom with Simon and Schuster (I think that's what she said...I'll listen again and clarify) and I'm absolutely ecstatic for her. I'm so, SOOO excited to read the book whenever it is released, hopefully within the next year or two :) . I almost screamed when I heard it, I've been wanting something like this to be published forever and now one of my three favorite podcasters in the world has done it. Once again, congrats!

Leaky Reading Groups

I've only just been sorted into Chamber 29 of the Leaky Reading Groups for OotP, and already I'm seeing that this will be so much fun! If you haven't already, go and get yourself sorted for the groups. Hope to see you in Chamber 29!

And, if you are in Chamber 29, why don't you support everyone's favorite Potter fan (me) and his budding career in signature images by using my new Chamber 29 image, located to the right?
