Potter mania

Too bad the title isn't pot mania, then maybe this post would be a bit more interesting. Here's an on-line story about how the new Pope criticized Harry Potter a couple of years back. That shit isn't not going to really matter though b/c Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is going to drop like it's hot this Saturday. The first run print is around 11 million copies or so, only about 9 million copies more than the first print for a John Gresham novel.

The reason I bring this up is b/c the Potter series really got me interested in reading again after I finished college (what a collective awww how sweet moment, sorry let me try and correct that). And reading is totally fucking awesome, in one book I read a dominatrix shit down a guy's mouth and made him eat it. So I'm excited to pick the book on Saturday although it may be awhile until I get around to reading it (I'm about 1/2 through infinite jest the hilarious, amoungst countless other things, book that supplied my cheerful quote for this site, anyway it's going to be a while before I'm done with it).

If you haven't read any Potter yet, I recommend that you start. Hmmm, now that I'm finishing this post I wonder who would win in a wizard duel between young Harry and this guy? From what I've read they both seem to talented wizards/warlocks who have run into some pretty crazy wizardry type shit. Harry has defeated Lord Voldemort on countless occasions, but the other guy, at least I'm about 50% sure, had a hole drilled in his head. I'm no oddsmaker but my money is on the dude wielding the hatchet.

So in conclusion, Catholics 0: J.K. Rowling 1,000,000,000.000 dollars or so.

Still not a Potter fan, but me and the Pope are close as cousins.

BTW I am allowed to make fun of the Pope b/c I'm Catholic, that's how it works.

Nice post, it has always been sort of a grey zone with web based email purchasers. This makes it a bit more clear!
