Hello Lovely Readers,
So it wasn’t until this morning that I realize I missed Harry Potter’s (and JK Rowling’s) birthday last Thursday. In my defense I was out of town, and I had prepared all the post a head of time, so it never really registered. But that means lots of Harry Potter posts this week in recompense for that slip! Today are some interesting Harry Potter themed videos.
First is one that is very dear to me, and it is the opening song to A Very Potter Musical that was written and performed by StarKid Production at the University of Michigan (my old school!). You may recognize Darren Criss who went on to Glee after this. But you can watch the whole show youtube, which I highly suggest. Plus there is also the sequel as well. Anyway this is one of the best songs of the show!
Next is a video that has been out for over half a year, but I just stumbled upon it. If you have ever wondered what it might have been like when Albus Dumbledore and Gellert Grindelwald fought, and Albus’s sister was killed, this video gives an idea. Some of the acting is a bit rough, but the concept was really cool, and very sad.
Lastly, this video I saw a while ago and though it doesn’t really fit with the other two, I have been looking to share it for a while, as I have a lot o opinions about it. In the video Rowling is asked if Snape was a hero, and she makes it clear he wasn’t. She points out that he wasn’t that nice of a person, and without his “love” of Lily he wouldn’t have cared at all about Harry. I think this is important for people to remember about Snape, even though he did some good deeds, he was not a good person.
Hope you guys enjoy the videos!
Until next time,
