Riverdale

Are there any Riverdale Bulldog fans here? I got a late start on this show (started after season 1 ended) but I was pulled right in. I do not have much knowledge of the Archie comics works so I just appreciate the show as it is. In my opinion it’s better acted than some other teen shows out there. M...

Re: Discussion #4 - Values and Wizarding Jobs

My Value Results are as follows: Economic = 14 Theoretical = 13 Aesthetic = 9 Social = 6 Political = 9 Religious = 9 The only result that surprised me is the religious one. I thought that would be the lowest as I was not raised religious and do not give it priority. I would have thought aesthetic or...

Re: Discussion #3 - Intelligence

I took this quiz twice but it was because I felt there were two or three questions where two of the choices fit. Both times I ended up with Linguistic Intelligence also known as Word Smart . When reading through the lesson I felt there were a few possibilities for the type of intelligence I would ha...

The Greatest Showman

The story of P.T. Barnum comes to life in this movie filled with song, dance and curiosities. There have been some liberties taken in terms of the true story of the man behind Barnum’s, but overall it is an inspiring and colorful tale. It took me a while to see this but I was initially intrigued. Th...

Re: Do you play a sport?

Up until I was 15 I was a gymnast and then, after an injury, I switched to ice hockey. I got to play in college and my job has a small league. Both are different but very fun.

HP Concert Series

One of my favorite things about the HP movies is the soundtracks. The music is so beautiful and moving. Lately there has been a tour of the HP movies featuring local orchestras. The movie plays and the orchestra plays the songs live. Has anyone been? What do you think? Which music do you love the mo...

Re: What book you have read would make a great movie?

There are two trilogies that I thought would make great movies, but I recently learned that one is already becoming a movie. That’s The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken. The Razorland Series by Ann Aguire would make a good movie. It has a lot of dystopian elements but the characters are great and ...

Spells You Would Like to See

The Wizarding world is full of many magical spells and potions. Some regrow bones, some cure all poisons and there are spells to fix broken objects. We all know food cannot be created and the dead cannot come back to life. Putting Gamp’s Law aside, are there any spells you would like to create or se...

Re: More Harry Potter merch!

What about PB Teen? They created a line of Harry Potter bedclothes and even have a snitch clock. Their target audience may well be young adults/teens but honestly their stuff is very nice and I wouldn’t mind having it. Also, finally finally FINALLY Alex & Ani has a line of bracelets featuring our fa...

Re: What is Your Trademark Spell?

I have a particular affinity for Accio, the summoning spell. For some reason I was always good at vanishing and deterring spells but I put a lot of focus into this one because it draws things to you instead of away.

Re: The Big Bang Theory

I really like this new Raj/Howard storyline. I think it has a lot of real life applications. Everyone should cut out toxic people, including friends if they have them.
