Pitter Potter

Hello. Instead of talking about blog con (i haven't gone yet) I'll do harry potter instead.

QUICK QUIZ: What 1986 motion picture tells the story of a young character named Harry Potter who becomes involved in a world of good-versus-evil witchcraft?

Answer at end of post.

Facts:

The world of Harry Potter has grown so large, that even long-established institutions are beginning to take note. This past Sunday's edition (July 10) of The New York Times featured a Potter-themed crossword puzzle.

After having taught the "science" of Harry Potter as a physics professor at Maryland's Frostburg State University in 2003, George Plitnik is continuing the effort this fall when he teaches an after-school remedial class of eight-grade science students. He feels that kids' fascination with the stories will evolve into a desire to learn and perform better in their studies.

Box office watchers have decided that they won't judge the new film Charlie and the Chocolate Factory on its opening weekend. The movie, geared toward a nearly identical audience as those who will spend the weekend reading the new Harry Potter book, may suffer from low sales when it opens as a result. Whereas almost all films have their strongest ticket sales in the first week, Charlie may be an exception.

As with the previous book in the series, environmental organizations are requesting that "Harry Potter" fans purchase their copy of the new book from Raincoast Books, the company that prints the novels in Canada. The reason? The edition from the Great White North is printed on recycled paper, unlike the U.S. release.






QUICK QUIZ ANSWER:
Troll , written and directed by John Carl Buechler. The film focused on a kid named Harry Potter, years before J.K. Rowling used the same name in her book series.

    Wah that's old. Watched that before during those days. But can't remember a thing about it. Guess it had to be because of the pillow that's covering my eyes when watching it. :)
