"more than fragments"

Happy belated birthday to artwhisperer. I hope this year is the best yet!

I have a few links to share:

* Thanks to Sword of Gryffindor (a great site for those who enjoy the Harry Potter series and take the books seriously as literature) for recently recommending my blog. I appreciate it! Incidentally, Sword of Gryffindor's blog is now syndicated for LJ as sword_gryff.

* read_hp is hosting a Harry Potter Read-A-Long. Beginning March 12, the community will be reading the entire Harry Potter series chapter by chapter in anticipation of the final book, which will be released on July 21, 2007. (Thanks to agentxpndble.)

* princeofcairo is taking a "Tour De Lovecraft," reading through HPL's works and commenting on each, in his blog. (Thanks to vaklam.)

* A Finnish politician seeks Klingon votes. (Thanks to green_key.)

* The USPS will soon have some R2D2 mailboxes. (Thanks to agentxpndble.)

Me too! :)

Artoo mailboxes, I want one! Not sure what I'd do with it, but I want it!
Mar. 14th, 2007 12:33 pm (UTC)
You and me both! :)

And thanks for your recommendation as well!

You've made me add to my reading list, by the way. I've ordered a book of Lovecraft stories.

You're most welcome. I'm really excited about what you're accomplishing with your site.

And that's fabulous news!

If you'd like, I'd be more than happy to send you my Lovecraft-Tolkien article. Just let me know. And no worries if you're not interested - that's cool, too.

I'd love a copy of the Lovecraft-Tolkien article. Could you just contact me through this E-Owl link? I'll reply back, and then you can attach it in your response.

I'm also going to have to start digging through the stuff you posted a while back on Arthurian legends and the hallows. I posted an essay on the HP-Essays LJ (and at SoG) and got skewered for linking some completely discredited scholar (a link I'd found through HP-Lexicon).

I look forward to hearing what you come up with re: the Arthurian links! (My original post on that was here.)

I don't agree with the last quote.

Re: PS
I can see both sides: I guess it would depend on what mood you caught me in, what I would think about it. :)
