What I Learned from … Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone

Philosphers Book

Whether you call it Philosophers Stone or Scorers Stone – Harry Potter and the [preferred adjective] stone is a beautiful book – in my opinion – that brilliantly sets up an amazing series that has definatly changed the lifes of many children and adults globally. I was definitely one of them. I vividly remember the day that my mum had finished the series and told me I had to start reading them. So I took the first book on our annual Hunstanton trip and could not put it down. I remember going through the series so quickly and crying near the end because I knew there wouldn’t be more to read.

Since Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone was published on the 26th June 1997, it is the 20th anniversary of it’s release! And to mark this milestone I thought I’d break down what the first book in this series taught me as I grew up. I hope you enjoy …

This post does contain SPOILERS of the first book but if you haven’t gotten to the reveal of the first book then where have you been the last 20 years? 😀

Chris Ledesma talks Simpsons popularity and 30 year milestone!

Hello guys and welcome to a post I announce with such excitement. Remember when I got to send question to THE Harry Shearer? It was such an honour and when I decided to randomly ask if I could send questions to THE Chris Ledesma, I never thought he would actually say yes. Chris has edited and work with the music for the show for EVERY episode of the Simpsons. Just let that sink in!

Chris has a really good blog which he links throughout his answers and I’ve defintaly enjoyed reading about his journey through the blog. The day came when I read his post about the recent 30 year milestone and randomly had a thought to ask him if I can ask him questions. I didn’t ask think he would say yes and actually send me his responses.

I hope you enjoy his responses …


Clarification: My questions are in bold whist his answers are in plain text

(Secret Agents 2017) When EA could have done more …

Hello guys and welcome to a post when I ramble with a “glass half empty” attitude (*GASP*) and look at the times when EA could have done more. Confused? In this midst of this Secret Agents event there have been many times where I’ve looked at an item and had different reactions, all having the theme of “wow, EA could have done more with that”.

Because this is a Secret Agents edition, I am only covering times when in this secret agents event EA could have done more. Read on …

What event shall I write about?

Dr Nick

Heya everybody, hope everyone is feeling well and surviving Monday so far. EA has given us this Military update in the unexpected form of a mini event. Whether I like it or not is up for another post but, as I count these mini updates as (easy-going) background fun, we have a bit of lull before the next “BIG” thing.

So … I wanted to do something that I keep saying I’ll do and that is share event ideas. I have so many event ideas and I always want to share them but I barely do and it’s a shame so I will start to do more event ideas in between events and maybe a few in events 😁.

Around the World in 10 Days #9: Australia

Good day mates and welcome to our penultimate journey around the world with The Simpsons. We’ve had one heck of a journey and all with me snuggling into bed with my phone watching episodes and taking screenshots.

The Simpsons have had their fair share of Travel Episodes and i really enjoy seeing the family get up to their casual antics in different cultures and I think it’s safe to say I’ve learnt a lot of stereotypical information about each country: UK is snobby suited men walking around in their waistcoats, Ireland is just leprechauns and drunk children and India is Bollywood dancers – right? 😉

Well today we’re off to a stereotype heavy but a classic episode (IMO) so fasten your seatbelts and enjoy your ride to Australia!
