No, really. Sort of. Rupert Grint provided a big old smackeroo in a confusing-yet-presumably-supportive gesture for The Eve Appeal. He also wrote some words and signed his own name, so NER to those of you who didn’t thing he could. I’m not really sure why The Eve Appeal decided that selling kiss-prints would be a good fundraising campaign for gynecological cancer: for me the ideas of Rupert Grint’s ‘kiss’ and cancer of the cervix really don’t sit well together. Even if it IS Rupert Grint.
Before I do an accidental rant, let’s move on. I’m a bit about Harry Potter, at the mo’. With Harry Potter you get everything: magic, adventure, awesome ginger humans and hilarious puns.
It’s not the story, particularly. The 32.6 minutes I’ve spent obsessing (look, I’m busy OK?) has been focused on people obsessed by Harry Potter. Particularly this guy. Half the time the people obsessed by everyone’s-favourite-annoying-fictional-wizard and his cast of much-less-annoying-yet-sadly-still-fictional-wizard-friends-and-foes are more interesting that any of the books or movies. Especially the fifth one. They’re so much more IMAGINATIVE. JK Rowling may have given the world Lord Voldemort but Violet_quill gave us the hilarious and x-rated Lord Voldemort’s Diary, Bridget Jones style. Read it. Love it. Then immediately move on to the Potter Puppet Pals ‘Wizard Angst’:
And once you’ve done that I suggest you get yourself over to the Harry Potter Tattoos tumblr site and immediately start deciding the most ostentatious way in which you would like to have your love of
Harry Potter Ron Weasley etched permanently onto your skin. Then buy an ACTUAL wand. Then watch all the movies back-to-back while reading the books and listening to the soundtrack. An HP cacophony.
Then have a nap, get over it, and read The Hunger Games. It’s the next big thing don’tcha know. Stephanie Meyer totally bloody loved them, but don’t let that put you off. And don’t worry if you can’t be arsed to read it, the first one’s already being made into a movie starring some highly-sexualised teens (just to keep your attention) but also Lenny Kravitz and Woody Harrelson.
Be there or be totally behind the times.
