The Breaking Dawn LeakyMug Live at Azkatraz 2009


Jan 15, 2009

Posted by Melissa Anelli

This July 17, MuggleCast and PotterCast will be joining forces once more for, seriously, the nuttiest thing we’ve ever done: A live LeakyMug at 3 a.m.

Why would we do this? Because we’ll all be just returning from a midnight showing of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, and what better time to talk about it than when we’re delirious (for better or worse) about it? So, put this on your calendar:

July 17, 2009
Where: Azkatraz 2009, San Francisco, CA
Parc 55 Hotel, 55 Cyril Magnin Street
San Francisco, CA 94102
Only registered guests of the conference can get into this show; you can register here!
When: Right after a midnight showing of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
Why (as in WHY would you EVER podcast before dawn?): Because we’re Harry Potter fans, guys, duh!

See you there!

(No, this has nothing to do with Twilight. Stop that.)

Avatar Image says: Melissa turn on your tv to the news! It's not potter related but kinds interesting can't wait to see you guy live.Avatar Image says: Then stop with the non-funny Twilight jokes. Breaking dawn Harry Potter podcast..? You didn't have to go there. Annoying.Avatar Image says: ... ...? ... ? So... um... You guys at Leaky have already seen HPB?Avatar Image says: le'sigh. No guys. They are saying that this is going to be after the midnight showing when it comes out in July. Read the whole post, please. And, coming from a huge Twilight/Harry Potter fan, there is no need to freak out because they named an event after one of the Twibooks. Take long deep breaths, people. It will be okay. Go find something that makes you happy so that you are not taking your silly frustrations out on people via the internet.Avatar Image says: haha. I would have already seen the movie by then, it comes out on July 16th in Australia, plus the time difference as well. :DAvatar Image says: Yay! I've been longing for a LeakyMug! PotterCast and MuggleCast has been developing into two kinds of post-DH podcasts and I really think you could use having a joint show again. Not that I view you as the same show, it's rather like you're good at different things. I think a joint show might help you pick up on some stuff that you should both be up to right now. MuggleCast could use some more enthusiasm and PotterCast might benefit from a pinch of extra salt. (I just can't put it any other way...) I'm not saying that I want you to do literally the same show or anything like that (no way!), you both do your own thing and of course you still should. However, I think a LeakyMug is due right around now. Can't wait!Avatar Image says: ?????? said JULY 17th. axl.girl.- I'm pretty positive it is not a twilight joke...they're doing a podcast a Dawn. not everything related to eclipses or sunrise times is associated with twilight. people who think like, they are truly annoying.Avatar Image says: LeakyMugs rock! It reminds me of the good ole days (circa GOF premiere). Avatar Image says: Ooh, I hope you're planning on seeing HBP in IMAX at the Sony Metreon theaters in SF...great big theater! I may have to join you!Avatar Image says: But I won't be there. Why can't you come to my house here in Sweden after seeing HBP? I'd give you cookies.Avatar Image says: I have to admit I got a little scared when I read the words Breaking Dawn...Avatar Image says: Breaking Dawn has an implied Twilight reference now, whether we like it or not.Avatar Image says: I'll be there! I live just around the corner so at least I can crash afterward. I'll only come though if you talk about Bella and Edward, too. Just Kidding. Avatar Image says: heck yeah that's what potter fans do! <3 you guysAvatar Image says: dude i hat e all og the twilight refrences, if you want to talk about twilight go to another website. Ok so will you guys post this afteward because i cant go to san fransico. i live in denver. i would go but yea. i cant wait to see this movie, mostley ron and hermione. go ronAvatar Image says: Woo-hoo! My first live LeakyMug. I'm excited! See you guys there. :)Avatar Image says: I'M NOT GOING TO THIS PURELY BECAUSE IT'S CALLED "THE BREAKING DAWN" PODCAST IF I WANTED TO VOMIT ALL OVER THE PLACE I WOULD BE AT TWICON NOT AZKATRAZ. I know it's not about twilight, but just the name makes me shudder. It's the worst book i've ever read. At least you say (No, this has nothing to do with Twilight. Stop that.) Mugglenet said (Note: headline has nothing to do with the successful series by Stephenie Meyer) ugh. Avatar Image says: Well, there is absolutely no way I will be able to come. When are you guys going to put up the podcast?? Hopefully immediately after!Avatar Image says: I hope more people leave for MC so I can chat. >.>Avatar Image says: Yeah! I love LeakyMug. It's funny and there is nothing better than the two best teams of HP Podcasters on the web talking about the biggest event in 2009. Half Blood Prince. And right after the midnight release of the film: That's what I call a Midnight Sun :-) (I can't wait to listen all the references and jokes about Twilight. With Andrew and all the team of Mugglecast there will be them for sure) See you people (or hear you people) on July.Avatar Image says: My mind definitely also went to Twilight the moment I saw the words 'Breaking Dawn' and it confused me until I read the whole post. I'm very glad Pottercast is coming too! For awhile, I was afraid it was only going to be Mugglecast. I really want to share this moment with everyone. I'm so excited! :)Avatar Image says: Come on guys, do we Potter fans really need to name something HP related after Twilight?! This is ridiculous. You know we're better than that.Avatar Image says: I am In NY i wish i could go....Avatar Image says: Hold on...what happened to boycotting the premiere weekend of the HBP to make some statement to Warner Brothers that we haven't forgotten the shoddy way they treated Potter fans? Perhaps Muggle and Leaky never entertained the idea of doing this, but if either organization thinks it's a worthy idea, they should support it and lead the way. We're doing exactly what WB was counting on us to do, forget about what they've done and fall all over ourselves to get them their money as fast as possible. If collectively we don't show any restraint, they'll never take anything we say seriously. They moved HBP simply to make more $$, even though the movie is completely ready and sitting in some vault. I think we can make their justification of an 8 month delay fall flat by taking a big chunk out of their business opening weekend, which is the main focus. Yes, I know they'll get the $$ eventually, but if we don't do something, we've just rolled over. And, I'm not saying you're a terrible person if you do go see the movie straightaway, I just urge everyone to stop and think of this as the excitement builds over the next several months.Avatar Image says: Yeah, you guys need to start having more posts about Azkatraz (the first HP convention I can actually go to because I live right near San Francisco, yay!). Registration is now open and the earlier you register, the cheaper the prices are. It sounds so awesome, with lots of really cool events (especially the Wrock around the Rock (aka Alcatraz) Cruise featuring Ministry of Magic, The Remus Lupins, The Whomping Willows, The House of Black, etc.) , so go register now! I'm imperiusing you all to come to San Francisco (evil laugh).Avatar Image says: And get over the "Breaking Dawn" reference. It's just a joke. Don't you people have any sense of humor? I think it's funny, although perhaps a tiny bit confusing at first, but only until you read the actual post. You can hate the Twilight series all you want; that's your right, but don't get angry at Pottercast. They're allowed to call it whatever they want and I know there are some Twilight fans working for The Leaky Cauldron/Pottercast, so it's perfectly understandable. Some people like both series. Get over it, people. It's not like they said the Twilight series was better than HP or anything, so chill out people. The Twilight series is not the best literature ever written, but it certainly isn't the all time worst either, trust me, I've read worse. Avatar Image says: Heck yes. Have fun! Avatar Image says: Uhhh! Would you please stop putting Twilight down? You can be a fan of both, cause me and my sister, and ALL our friends are. Oh, guess who is the leading man in the Twilight movies, Robert Pattinson, aka Cedric.Yeah, you know you can't down him, I don't have to tell people on the Twilight sites to not down HP, 'cause they don't. They are actually saying that it would be cool to have some of the HP actors on there too. Its just getting really old and annoying. So stop being rude!Avatar Image says: This is the last time I'll visit this site!Avatar Image says: "(No, this has nothing to do with Twilight. Stop that.)" hahaha lol i got kinda confused when i read the headline..... XD Avatar Image says: I envy you Australians.Avatar Image says: @ AJ. Sorry AJ, its called show business for a reason. And WB has every right to postpone a release. Yes, they delayed the announcement too much and they acknowledge that as a mistake probably because they werent fully clear for quite some time. Dont forget, this means that its only one and half years to the next film. Avatar Image says: Can't wait to see you there!Avatar Image says: Darn! I never get to go to any of these. I live on the East cost and my family doesn't like to drive alot so I won't be able to come! :( You guys should do something near DC. sometime, then I would be able to come. =)Avatar Image says: Thank god this has nothing to do with Twilight unfortunately i live on the east coast, but I wish I could be thereAvatar Image says: phew! you scared me for a second there - i thought you were turning in to twilight cast or something. lol.Avatar Image says: erg!i wish i could go to azkatraz! but you BETTER do a live pottercast at LeakyCon lol "this has nothing to do with twilight. stop that. " i'm glad :PAvatar Image says: why does my mother h8 me, Oh yeah now I remember, because im an "overly obsessed" Potter fan, thats why! if she loved me, she would let me go!!!Avatar Image says: Unfortunately, I live in Australia, so I wont get to come :( However, it does mean I get to see the movie early anyway, and I'll be eagerly awaiting the podcast!Avatar Image says: Oh this is soooo good - I was hoping you guys were going to do this! I am coming from Australia for Azkatraz so this just makes it even more perfect :)Avatar Image says: ok i'll admit when i saw the words breaking dawn i went huh? leakymug is doing something on twilight... then i read the whole post i wish i could be there... at 3am july17 for you guys will be like 9pm july 18 for me over here in australia... oh wellAvatar Image says: this is nutty like to the max--good luck with the giddiness that inevitably comes with staying up past 2am!!Avatar Image says: I can't wait to hear from you guys but I don't care too much for the other podcast. I listen to them but I'M A HUGE TWILIGHT FAN AND YEA THERE ARE HUNDREDS OF Twilight sites but that's one reason why I think Mugglenet are doing a diservice to the TWilight fanbase with their so called Imprint podcast but I'll save that for later ! BUT I'LL TALK ABOUT TWILIGHT BECAUSE I LOVE THAT SERIES BUT yea this might not be a good place !Avatar Image says: I love Twilight also and I'll be going to a con for it ! But the cast is starting to pull out of conventions because of filming oops Harry Site anyways looking forward to getting to hear more about the podcast. Well it sucks for me I thought this had something to do with Twilight oh well.
