I think this is only appropriate with 8 days until THEE. VERY. LAST. HARRY. POTTER. MOVIE. comes out in theatres.
Phil shared this video with me last night:
He didn’t understand any of the Harry Potter references but still appreciated it – it’s really a great song! I tried to explain “Wizard Rock” ie people forming bands with Harry Potter themed band names and lyrics. It’s a real thing. And a lot of them are really good.
I’m not sure I know people who didn’t read all the books (or at least has seen all of the movie series so far) know why this is such an epic franchise. I read the first Harry Potter book in 10th grade (for a class, I think?) And have been hooked ever since. It’s just SUCH a STORY. Appeals to the action and romance and drama we all seek in entertainment. Lessons of growing up and lessons of life.
I have ALL the books (Midnight book parties so I can get them earlier? um, yes!) and if you haven’t read them, you may have a hard time stopping me from making you read them.
It is our choices that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities. ~J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, 1999, spoken by the character Albus Dumbledore
