TC found this last night and showed it to me, and I laughed until I nearly peed myself. I will never hear that song again without thinking of it. OMFG, Voldemort's expression! And Bellatrix!

In other news, I'm continuing my viewing of Waking the Dead and have just finished the fifth series. I thought that one had some excellent stories, but I still prefer the team dynamic of the first four series. (And it makes me grumpy that just as I got used to the "new" pathologist and started to like her, they're about to foist yet another one on me. Blah.) We'll see how I feel after I get into series six. Don't get me wrong, I'm really enjoying it overall or I wouldn't be devoting this much time to it - maybe the changes just have more impact because I'm going straight through it instead of waiting a year between series.

Also, this is a show that was made for a drinking game. Every time Boyd yells "SPENCE!" as a suspect flees on foot - drink! Every time someone rolls his or her eyes behind Boyd's back - drink! Every time Grace says Boyd's name reprovingly - drink! Every time a new piece of evidence goes up on the big glass board - drink! You'd be wasted by the end of one episode.

So, I finally got around to reading about the upcoming Pottermore site, and ... eh. On the one hand, I think it'll be lots of fun for kids (TC will probably be into it), and on the other hand, I don't like losing the sense of completion I had, that the books were finished and that was that. This feels like hooking the wires up to Frankenstein's monster and jolting it unwillingly back to life--I'm sure it doesn't feel that way to JKR, who rightly loves her universe and is excited to spill everything she knows about it, but it does to me.

The hinted-at McGonagall revelations didn't spark much reaction in me either, surprisingly. I must have read too much fanfic in the past, because I just thought Well, that's her take on it, as if she were some random author and not the actual creator. :D :D At this point, Minerva's backstory is what it is in my head, and I don't think anything can change that. Though any new information will probably open the door to reviews on old stories of mine, helpfully pointing out that this or that is "wrong." There's something to look forward to. :P
