No Such Nonsense

A little of this, that and... what was I talking about again? It's TV, sports, pop culture and politics - all the stuff that really matters in life.

5 months and 21 days....

J.K. Rowling has announced the release date of the final Harry Potter novel - Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. The book comes out on Saturday, July 21. I'm not saying I'm addicted or anything, but if Hallows is anything like The Half Blood Prince, by the end of Sunday July 22 I'll have read the whole thing, be cruising on little sleep and too many peanut butter cups, have one very serious reader's headache and be simultaneously satiated, exhausted and sad that's its over. Hey what, does that sound a bit dirty? Sorry. Seriously, I have no impulse control when it comes to a good story. Or when it comes to Reese Peanut Butter cups.

The release date also come hot on the heels of widely publicized publicity pictures for Daniel Radcliffe's role in a west-end production of Equus. The young actor best-known -okay only-known - for his role as Harry in the Potter films, strips down in the play and in the posters. I really did not need to see Harry Potter in the buff. But speaking of buff, young Daniel seems to have been taking quite good care of himself. Is it wrong that I think that? That's dirty too, right?

5 months, 21 days.

    And why is it coming out on the Saturday as opposed to the traditional mid-week launch of new books? I'm thinking absenteeism, folks calling in sick.

    Everyone will be reading all weekend, so it won't be spoiled by loudmouths on the Monday.

    Daniel Radcliffe was brilliantly funny on Extras (Ricky Gervais's post-Office show), playing himself as a wanna-be ladies man who kept chatting up older (which would be anyone 20 and up)women: "You know I've done it. Sexually. With a woman. The ole in and out."
