'Can it be true? That I hold here in my mortal hand a nugget of purest green?'

On our last night in France last year, at the end of the assistantship, Renata, Jenny and I went out for Indian food. We found a restaurant just by wandering around and I happened to look up and see that it was in the Rue Nicholas Flamel. At the time, I only knew Flamel as the "only known maker of the Philosopher's [or Sorcerer's] Stone" from the Harry Potter books, but it turns out that he really existed. Flamel was a fourteenth-century French alchemist and that he really was rumoured to possess the Philosopher's Stone, which is supposed to create...

Because I can't talk about anything else this weekend...

It's a shame when people won't even give Harry Potter a chance. His celebrity has gotten the best of him, and now half the people I read online seem to be refusing to read the books. If you think Harry Potter is kid stuff or just hype, I would ask you to read the first 30 pages or so of The Philosopher's/Sorcerer's Stone. If it doesn't get you hooked, fine. But I like to think it will. Don't knock it till you've tried it!...

HP-DVD

We finally got around to picking up Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone on DVD. I think I liked the movie better than I did before - after a while to think about it - but there's still a lot missing. I would much rather have Book 5 out than the Chamber of Secrets in theaters. The extras on the DVD are odd. The box says there are deleted scenes somewhere, but the extras are such a complicated tangle that it's impossible to find anything. Instead they make you play their little games. I WANT DELETED SCENES!...

My Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone™ calendar...

My Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone™ calendar page for yesterday says "Harry sees a goblin for the first time when he visits Gringotts™ with Hagrid™." This disturbs me greatly. It's so despicably commercial-sounding. Harry™ Harry™ Harry™, you've sold out....

Do you think the people in Shrek looked realistic?

Do you think the people in Shrek looked realistic? I don't. They looked fake and they didn't move like real people do. We don't have the technology yet. Will someone please tell Hollywood? There was only one point in The Fellowship of the Ring (and now I don't remember where it was) where I had that creepy Shrek-feeling, but I noticed it a lot more in Harry Potter - like when Neville flies into the air and falls off his broom, most of the Quidditch sequence, and when they're fighting the troll. We do not have the technology to replace...

It was much better than expected.

It was much better than expected. Overall, it was quite enjoyable, although I have those normal Potterholic complaints of things that were left out or changed and a few other things as well. Most of the effects were great - especially the Invisibility Cloak, which I really liked. I thought the movie worked pretty well for those who had read the books and who knew what they were expecting. I think it worked less well for those who were new to the Potter experience. I'm not sure that everything was made as clear as in the books and they might...

Judging from the reviews

Judging from the reviews I've read, I think Harry Potter is going to be a disappointment. But then again, anything is going to be a disappointment when it's built up like this. Look at The Phantom Menace... I hope The Fellowship of the Ring lives up to everything Alex is expecting of it....

I am so shamefully slow

I am so shamefully slow. I should have bought Harry Potter tickets weeks ago and didn't get around to it. Now we probably won't be able to see it opening night. Shame shame shame! I am hanging my head and sniffling....

I like Harry

I like Harry, but I wouldn't want to wear his glasses. Alex has the advantage of a dork-stigma on The Lord of the Rings, so it isn't as heavily merchandised. :( 11 days to Potterdom......
