Awesome as always!Avatar Image says: Squee!!! New PotterCast!!! I'm too excited about the tour!!Avatar Image says: *sighs* I'll have to listen to it when I get up. It's too late to listen. I downloaded it though and I'm very excited to listenn to it!Avatar Image says: Ooh, I loved "The Seventh Horcrux"! I'm looking forward to downloading this one!Avatar Image says: Could you post a link to the screencap mentioned in Canon Conundrems of the symbol on the spine of DH which appears in the movies. CheersAvatar Image says: I'm thinking of starting a book to see how long people think Melissa will last during their weeks on tour before strangling John and Sue, lol. Just take earmuffs, sleeping pills and lots of alcohol, Melissa. Avatar Image says: Melinda is my fave fic author!!!!! I am so happy!!!! I have all of her fics printed out and binded and they are probabaly the best things I have ever read(not counting cannon:))Avatar Image says: Which editor is responisible for the Irish Quidditch team theme playing behind my theory. Was it Stede? Way to go for making it obvious where I'm from ;p This has been one of the funniest PC I have heard for a long time. I can just imagine John hitching somewhere after Melissa kicked him out for hiding burittos in the car. (cue Hulk end credits piano music)Avatar Image says: The south got skipped again. We like Harry Potter too, I swear. I wonder if the format of your podcasts are going to be the same as the other live Pottercasts? I'm thinking it'll be difficult to keep it fresh, plus the sound quality of the live podcasts are..y'know. But that's cool;Pottercast on tour!Avatar Image says: Everyone always skips Michigan. :(Avatar Image says: Melissa, please pack lots and lots of sick bags for dear baby John! Looking forward to seeing loads of pics, audio and vid. Avatar Image says: Thank you Melissa! That is definitely NOT Bonnie! See? Didn't I say that wasn't Bonnie? At least I'm not the only one who thinks so.Avatar Image says: I agree. MICHIGAN always seems to get skipped. Pretty please comeeeee.Avatar Image says: Umm... Tombstone, Arizona (an hour and a half south of Tucson) is NOT a ghost town. It's an "old town." But people still live there. Some of us even grew up there. But you should come visit Tombstone. (Even though I don't live there anymore.) It's quit a site!Avatar Image says: Could you please post the link to the picture of the symbol in the UK cover that appears in one of the movies?Avatar Image says: somebody was talking about the trio & co.'s feet not touching the ground (or something like that) in film OOTP trailer? Now I know what they mean...oh, man, I can't believe this...you guys are coming here! And HatP too?!!! To this part of the Fab Forest ?!!!!!!! (crying unicorn tears of happiness at suddenly finding us "in the zone"...)...thanks you all!Avatar Image says: grr it isnt downloading in itunes, and it isnt listed in their live streaming podcast player thingy on the pottercast site >:( .also, is it just me, or is thr no pottercast player or scribbulus scroll or anything on the right side of the page anymore?Avatar Image says: I like the fact that you guys changed the play thing on the right side of the page. What do you them anyways. I'm not a computer person.Avatar Image says: Holy freakin'... Okay, possibly just a coincidence and a random object, but as mentioned in this Pottercast, that object/symbol/thing from the DH spine is in the background of "Goblet of Fire." Right when Dumbledore and Harry are talking about the Barty Crouch, and Dumbledore says, "...something I might have overlooked," the cabinet in which he's looking contains a VERY similarly shaped object... Gah! What is it?! Questions abound. P.S. I didn't see TX on the Pottercast tour schedule... :(Avatar Image says: What, no VA? sigh...no live PC for meAvatar Image says: OREGON!? EUGENE, OR?!?!!? Oh yes. Oh yes yes yes. I am SO stoked! Nothing ever happens in Oregon, especially somewhere I live! WAHOOOOOOOOOOOO. Avatar Image says: I'll definitely try and make it to the 7/13 in NYC, but you guys GOTTA represent on the 20th in NYC at Midnight for the Countdown! If it's good for Jim Dale, I'm sure B&N would happy to have you guys. He could even interview on the show! Anything for the fans!Avatar Imagemark_sheldon1221 says: Just re-listened to this episode - does anyone know where the image that Doris talked about of Dumbledore having the symbol of the Deathly Hallows in his office is at? Can't find it anywhere!
