::GASP:: An Update! [November 16, 2006 @ 7:11pm]

[ mood | calm ]

Sorry about the lack of updating. I've been really busy and then by the time I get to the computer I'm too lazy to update. Anyway's here's the update.

Recent Meeting: Nov. 16th: a little bit of general HP discussion. Discussed time theories and our thoughts on the movies. Also discussed meeting time/place for in the future. Short meeting.

HP News:
OotP Poster Released: The first promo poster for OotP has been released. Fans of Voldemort will rejoice and the poster reflects the darker turn the books/movies have taken.

OotP Trailor Nov. 17th: That's right. FIRST OotP trailor will premiere tomorrow right before the movie Happy Feet which is sure to be a great movie in itself. Really, what's better than dancing and singing penguins with a little bit of Harry Potter beforehand?

I was going to post more news, but I don't really feel like doing so. So, I decided to do weekly news posts to keep you all updated on what has been going on.

Meeting Times:
November 30th in the music wing until 4:15-4:30 (please bring at least one theory to share)

Have a good Thanksgiving Break and be sure to read some Harry while you're weighted down with the turkey...or whatever you have :D

"There is no good and evil, just power and those to weak to seek it..." ~Tom Riddle [September 24, 2006 @ 7:08pm]

[ mood | almost asleep ]

Okay. So I got some wonderful news for you all. 

We have a teacher. Yes. The genius of Michelle Spicer has used her Ravenclawness to convince the newest choir teacher to be our moderator. What does this mean for you? 

Well, it means that meeting will be starting up within the next 2-4 weeks. Please be patient and as flexible as you can. We need to let this new guy adjust before we bombard him with the wonderfullness that is Harry Potter Club. 

It is important that you check here more often now so you know what's going on and all.

Monthly HP News:
September 19th: Hermione Jane Granger's 27th birthday! (That is, assuming she doesn't get killed in the last book)

Recently: Emma Watson has dyed her hair. Yeah, I know it's not really HP related, but she died her hair blonde. Blonde. Hermione is not a blonde.

Meeting Update [September 15, 2006 @ 5:50pm]

[ mood | waiting ]

Our meetings are currently looking to have a later start than we originally thought.

What does this mean?

It means that meetings won't start until mid-october.

[September 10, 2006 @ 2:34pm]

[ mood | curious ]

So, a UK newspaper just reported that Book 7 is already 750 pages and it's not finished yet. Here's a little excerpt:

"...she is half-way through writing the seventh and possibly final book, but the 41-year-old Scottish author is keeping tight-lipped over rumours she’s planning to kill off Harry.
“I’m up to about 750 pages now, but I’m not telling anyone what happens to Harry,” she says."

That makes it longer than HBP and shorter than OoTP right now. It's stioll unfinished, but it's looking to be a nice long one. Any thoughts on it?

JKR in NYC [September 01, 2006 @ 4:32pm]

[ mood | I'm awake...really ]

On August 1st, some members of our Harry Potter Book Club went to the city (NYC) to attend the charity reading JKR appeared at. Although I could not attend (due to the fact that I was up in Maine with my family), I have gathered the information from those who did attend. Apparently, the few who could go had a blast. The car ride was one thing, but meeting Emerson of mugglenet...
