But I actually do like some YA books and movies, so long as they are actually, you know, good. That’s one of the big strengths of the 800 pound gorilla in the library, J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series.
Na na na na na na na na – PUMPKINS! All week we’ve been featuring awesomely geeky pumpkin designs just for your viewing pleasure like, Harry Potter, Marvel, & Star Wars. Today’s carvings are from the dark and sinuous Gotham City, plus a couple of other heroes we love. See everything from the Flash, to Superman, to (of course) the Dark Knight.
LUMOUS MAXIMA! Accio carving knife, because it’s time for your daily dose of pumpkin geekery! We’ve been featuring brilliantly carved pumpkins all week and today’s theme is the wonderful world of Harry Potter. See everything from Snape, to Dumbledore and even a little Buckbeak! Like what you’re seeing? Then check out our Marvel or Star Wars posts, we posted earlier this week.
Watson and Ryan hold down the fort for Episode 54 of the Gabbing Geek podcast while Jenny recovers from Tiredofputtingupwithalltheircrapitis. It’s going around. So the Y chromosomes talk about Star Wars, Hunger Games, Mars, Alexander Hamilton, movie villains, and the summer of 2016 in movies. You should listen to it right the heck now, or jump after the break to read even more!
Look, we here at Gabbing Geek clearly love Harry Potter. Except for Watson, who gets a smug look on his face and says he loves Harry but isn’t in love with Harry. You get the drift.
Author J.K. Rowling also loves Harry Potter, or at least continuing to occasionally give out more information about Harry’s world and such. It’s why we know that Dumbledore was gay and what happened to the characters after Voldemort tossed off his last forbidden curse. Not to be confused with when Voldemort did the lambada, because that’s just the forbidden dance.
As it turns out, she also responds to fan theories, and recently she liked one.
This week on the podcast, Ryan and Watson discussed numbers and such. Yawn.
They also debuted the Meerkat thingamajig, but I don’t have a twitter account, so that means nothing to me.
But then there was a game where Watson was challenged to see if he could recognize various fictional planets and their source material. Ryan did call him to task for not knowing Earthsea. To be fair, while I do know Earthsea is the product of Ursala K. Le Guin, that’s about all I know. Plus, Earth-C is a legitimate homonym. Captain Carrot deserves better.
