Avatar Image says:

Avatar Image says:

bounces I do like the idea of having fan site giving out coupons, that would rock! Trouble for me is, I need to get my leaky count fixed cuz of some weird issue it wont take my email. >.> Ah well, I have 325 days to fix it. ^^“

YAY! the low bandwidth link isnt working…says there is no file!

Avatar Image says:

hey, that’s cool. i’ve never listened before, but i’m from detroit. where was this recorded at?!

Avatar Image says:

3 Hours? Holy cow. Thanks guys. I have something to listen to at work now with my new Nano (my old beat up Mini was stolen. Go figure).

Avatar Image says:

Yay, erm, wow, 3 HOURS of PC fun?! Thanks! This may be the longest PotterCast you’ve ever done! xD

Avatar Image says:

3 hours! Sweet! And wizard rock! Yeah!

Avatar Image says:

three hours?! holy crap. Viva la Detroit.

Avatar Image says:

So, who’s the KISS fan amongst the group? Saw the title as I was on iTunes and had a good laugh. Got to go and listen to it now!

Avatar Image says:

For some reason it’s not showed up on Zune Marketplace yet. I can get it direct download but i wanted to let someone know.

Avatar Image says:

would it be possible to get a version of this show with just the pottercast segments? i don’t have a great internet connection at the moment, and i really don’t like wizard rock.

Avatar Image says:

3 hours! Love the guess the book quizzes. I wish though John can also get them to describe who the character is involved in the scene rather than just the book. There were a couple of answers in past pottercasts that I couldnt figure out despite given the book number. I have to admit, I am not keen on the Wizard Rock but appreciate its all part of a great package!

Avatar Image says:

Ahh. It was so long! I stayed up most of the night listening. I have prickly eyeballs now… but it was totally worth it. The Mudbloods are really really excellent. XD The Eulogy to Aragog is my new favorite now.

Avatar Image says:

A bit too long for my taste, but I know it’s the exception, not the rule. I found it difficult to hear Sue in the first part. Should I just turn up my hearing aid??

The coupon bit would be a good idea, but I doubt it’ll happen.

I’m not interested in “Twilight”. Started the book, had to put it down. But they had to fill the slot with something.

I’m impatient for both the 4th of November and the 4th of December.

And my ‘prequel’ has been back ordered by Waterstone’s. I doubt I’ll get them now. (I ordered two)

When they started he game of naming every Hogwarths student, I seriously thought thats why this podcast is 3hrs long, thankfully they dont go on too long with that category! Hmm…they missed out Sirius Black in the dead characters category, tut tut!

But the biggest thing is Melissa’s revealing hints about her interview with Jo in her new book! Hmmm… Lets just say its to do with shipping. Yep thats right, I am now hence forth a Melissa and Jo shipper. Haha. Come on, it all fits, Jo on Pottercast, Melissa being there for Jo at the trial, the foreward…yeah, something going on there, I am ousting both Jo and Melissa in one innocent post, you heard it here first folks :D

Avatar Image says:

It’s pretty ironic that Noe only asked if we could hear Sue after we can finally hear her. I know it’s two different recordings but still. I was worried the whole thing would sound like she was doing the podcast from the bathroom. I’ve had days like that.

Avatar Image says:

forgot to say last week when you gave your thoughts on how people react when they find out you’re a Harry Potter fan was awesome!

Avatar Image says:

Fantastic Pottercast this week!

3 hours? Wow, what a treat! That certainly cheered me up from the date change :)

Love all the Wrock, aswell!

Keep on rockin’

Avatar Image says:

Ah! So that’s where Sue was. I had visions of her being locked in Fibber McGee’s Closet. (Look that one up) (If you know what the reference is without looking it up, you’re old like me…)

Avatar Image says:

Holy cow – 3 hours!? I’ve got catching up to do!

Rockin!

Avatar Image says:

Glad I’m not the only one Seth. I think it’s good that books inspire musical creativity in some people, but they don’t all have to share their creations. It’s weird because I like… well… pretty much every kind of music from all around the world. Bad college folk music just doesn’t do it for me.

I am surprised Noe didn’t like the last Twilight book. I thought he of all people could appreciate the absurdity of the whole thing. It was ridiculous and bizarre but I think that’s what the series needed for the close. The second one is the only place where I thought about stopping.

Avatar Image says:

For mellisa sue and Frak, how much did Warner bros. pay u to be so forgiving, complete betraly of the fandom, u 3 should be helping jon lead a boycott of twilight for this unspeakable act of a delay. And no mentions of the fans comments come on!!!

Avatar Image says:

All I can say is…

Barty Crouch….... J U N I O R!

Avatar Image says:

Lol. This is my new second favourite podcast (this is snogcast is my first favourite). This was so funny. John is so hilarious
