  Harry Potter General: Is Harry Potter stamp un-American?
Posted by WayaGola
on Friday, November 22 2013 @ 09:52:41 PST  (647 reads)
General Harry Potter News (CNN) -- First, immigrants steal Americans' jobs. And now foreigners are stealing Americans' rightful place on U.S. postage stamps!
OK, maybe that's a bit of an exaggeration. But a new line of Harry Potter stamps released this week by the U.S. Postal Service has outraged some stamp enthusiasts. As the former head of the American Philatelic Society (that's a stamp collecting society to the rest of us) noted: "Harry Potter is not American. It's foreign, and it's so blatantly commercial it's off the charts."

  Harry Potter Movies: Watching Harry Potter Enhances Creativity

News on any Harry Potter Movie Halloween, with its witches and ghouls and talking foxes, might just be the most creative day of the year.

"Magic -- the very word seems to reveal a world of mysterious and unexpected possibilities!" the Polish anthropologist Bronislaw Malinowski wrote in 1925. Magical phenomena, by definition, are impossible in the real world. Inanimate objects coming to life, people casting spells, being literally possessed to sing "Day-O." In the realm of fantasy, constraints are broken and nearly anything can happen.

  Harry Potter General: Butterbeer Recreated In Starbucks

General Harry Potter News While the Butterbeer you can get from a Starbucks might not be an official Harry Potter brand, that's really beside the point!
The point is, if you're craving one of Hogwarts' most delicious beverages, and you're not anywhere near somewhere magical, you can TOTALLY tailor your drink at a local Starbucks to get one!!

  Harry Potter marketing used to prop up child slavery
Posted by WayaGola
on Wednesday, July 10 2013 @ 08:22:47 PDT  (596 reads)
General Harry Potter News Some writes Potter fans might want to check out what Warner Brothers is up to: marketing Harry Potter schwag that's probably made with child slavery, refusing to source their chocolate from slavery-free sources, and refusing to comment on the miserable failure of their supplier to meet basic human rights standards.

Harry might have his hands too full with Voldemort to get into this, but you can bet Hermione wouldn't sit still for an instant.

What about us? What can Potter-watchers do against real-life Death Eaters like these?

1) Sign a petition to WB at: http://www.democrats.com/organize?registration_prompt#cid=ZGVtczk3Mzc5MmRlbXM%3D

2) How about we write to alert JK Rowling to this abuse of Harry's good name? She authorized the franchise-- does she have any say over how they use it now? I think she should! Rowling's PR is handled by Nicky Stonehill and Rebecca Salt at the email address: hello@stonehillsalt.co.uk


Note: This was submitted anonymously, so I did some checking on it... there is a petition out there but I have no idea who organizes and owns democrats.com.

http://www.democrats.com/harry-potter-chocolates

I did find plenty of web sites mentioning this but not one actual news story from any accredited organization... figured I'd allow the submission with a warning that "Not everything you see on the web is necessarily true or accurate..."

  Harry Potter General: 5 Life Lessons
Posted by WayaGola
on Wednesday, May 08 2013 @ 18:18:02 PDT  (805 reads)
General Harry Potter News The Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling is considered to be one of the most beloved stories of all time. For the non-Potterheads, Harry Potter is the story of the boy wizard who does the impossible. As a baby, he escapes unharmed from the dark lord Voldemort. With his parents dead, he lives with his non-magical aunt and uncle until age 11. On his eleventh birthday he receives his invitation to attend Hogwarts. Upon realizing he is a wizard, he attends Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, where he meets his two best friends, Ron and Hermione, and his mentor, Professor Dumbledore. He finally realizes the significance of defeating Voldemort and spends the next six years in a battle to the death, which proves to be much more complicated than anticipated. To get the full story and the greatness that is Harry Potter, I strongly recommend reading the books.
