Harry Potter’s Grave!

November 9, 2007

What a coincidence. A grave home to a guy named Harry Potter was found in Yorkshire. o.0 He died at the age of 29 on the year 1919. That’s so long ago!

And amazingly enough, the son of Mr Potter here is named James, which is also Harry’s (the fictional character) son’s name.

And more amazing, the vicar of the church has the surname Rowling, and the author of the Harry Potter series is J.K. Rowling. Wow.

Wow. That’s what I call creepy.

From Yorkshire’s Evening Post:

HERE’S a Halloween night revelation guaranteed to send a shiver down the spine.
A Yorkshire cemetery, it has emerged, is home to the grave of HARRY POTTER.

But fans of JK Rowling’s schoolboy wizard can be assured the evil Lord Voldemort hasn’t dealt their hero a fatal blow.

The Harry Potter buried at St Lawrence’s Church, in Carlton Miniott, near Thirsk, in North Yorkshire, died in 1919 aged 29. His last resting place lay hidden underneath overgrown bushes and creeping ivy until the plants were removed during a clean-up.

And the workers responsible then learned, to their amazement, that the vicar for Carlton Miniott has the surname ROWLING.

The churchman in question is the Reverend Richard Rowling – but that’s where the spooky coincidences end.
He is no relation to the woman who penned the famous tales about Harry.

The tombstone’s discovery has still sparked great interest in Carlton Miniott, however.

Parochial church councillor Robert Sidgwick’s grandchildren are devoted fans of the Potter books.

He said they were fascinated and “very excited” when he told them about the find.

The gardeners who uncovered the grave were carrying out community service work.

Mr Sidgwick said: “Villagers have noticed a great deal of work has been done and it is certainly much appreciated.”

He went on: “We contacted the Probation Service for help back in the summer.

“We were having trouble keeping the churchyard tidy because we had a small working team.

“The older part (of the site] needed lots of tender, loving care.”

I can’t stop wow-ing. It’s just so much of a coincidence.

WOW.

Dr Sheikh Muszaphar Wants To Be Single No More!

November 9, 2007

Stop day dreaming girls! XD Move over. Malaysia’s first astronaut wants to get married by 2009. Awwww.

sheikh muszaphar

Pssst! Your name is spelled wrongly on your name tag!

Article from The Star newspaper:

Angkasawan Dr Sheikh Muszaphar Shukor plans to end his bachelorhood by 2009.

While declaring that he would want to get married by then, Dr Sheikh Muszaphar did not say if he had any girlfriend or was seeing anyone special at the moment.

He merely smiled when the question was posed to him twice by reporters at the Parliament Lobby yesterday when he met MPs and attended the luncheon hosted by the Backbenchers Club.

Earlier, he said: “I am already 35, going on 36 and hope to be married by 2009.”

Dr Sheikh Muszaphar wants to end a two-year contract that he signed with the Government which requires him to remain single so that he could concentrate on the space programme.

Science, Technology and Innovation Minister Datuk Seri Dr Jamaludin Jarjis had said in his speech that Dr Sheikh Muszaphar wanted to end the contract earlier now that he had completed the space mission.

“We signed the contract with him last year and he has one more year to go,” he said.

Hopefully marriage will cheer him up as his brother just passed away a few weeks ago.

Hmmm and what’s up with the sneaky girlfriend. Go paparazzi, go! XD

Vote For J.K.Rowling for TIME magazine’s ‘Person Of The Year’!

November 9, 2007

Remember to vote for J.K. Rowling, author of the Harry Potter series as the ‘Person Of The Year’ by TIME magazine!

Go here to vote! (follow the link)

j k rowling

Here’s what TIME has to say about Jo:

Pro: Finished a seven-book epic that will be read by children (and lots of adults) for generations to come. Slowly creeping up on Agatha Christie as the most read author not named Shakespeare.

Con: Seventh book wasn’t her best, and hard to argue she was the most important person of 2007.

Deathly Hallows wasn’t her best? Yeah right. It IS the best.

She’s currently in the lead by 7,000 votes. Behind her are people like Al Gore and Hillary Clinton.

Although the editors of magazine do have the authority to change the standings… And IF they do, the voting process will be very much pointless.

VOTE!

ANTM Cycle 9 Episode 8 – The Girls Who Crawls [watch]

November 9, 2007

This episode refers to the girls learning moving lessons from Tyra. There is no photoshoots for this episode. (Bummer)

Firstly, the videos: (huge thanks to dodash8)

Part 1

Part 2

Part 3

Part 4

Part 5

Recaps:

Tyra teaches the ladies how to model in front of a moving camera. Things between Heather and Bianca heated up as Bianca thinks that Heather doesn’t work much to get beautiful shots, and that she just stands there and doesn’t put much effort. This is proved when Tyra applauds Heather in the moving lesson, and Bianca criticizes her for looking effortless. Later, the contestants shoot a music video with Enrique Iglesias. The challenge for the week was having a more featured role in the music video. This was not based on a girl’s skill but whether or not the girl fit the vampire theme of the music video. Lisa was chosen for her dark looks. Heather was picked as well for her gothic looks, which annoyed Bianca. Heather passed out due to the heat of the set and lack of energy, and she didn’t have any food since breakfast. In judging, Ambreal was criticized for going too ‘hoochie’, but was given another chance. Jenah was also said to be unnatural in front of the camera, but her amazing photos allowed her to stay. Chantal and Sarah landed in the bottom two, both for their okay performances. Sarah was eliminated because of her body type, which is between plus sized and ‘model-thin’.

Reviews:

I don’t quite like this episode, as there are no photoshoots, only a music video. I mean, is being in a music video going to help the girls in their future modelling carrier? It is again, a waste of time. Bianca goes back to her b*tchy attitude, constantly picking on Heather. I think she’s just jealous. Huh. Heather still rocks. Sarah being eliminated is stupid. What kind of reason is ‘losing her plus size body’? She came in perfectly fine and took nice photos. You can’t just boot a girl for having a normal body, not plus sized or being aneroxic-ly thin. That’s just dumb. I don’t think any of the girls deserves to be kicked off this week, as it wasn’t a ‘fair’ episode, being the music video and all. But if I had to choose, I’d get rid of Bianca, not because of her performance, but of her attitude.

Future episode:

The girls get deserted in a desert, and the photoshoot will be posing beside a burning car in the desert. It also shows Ambreal walking the catwalk. Heather heats up again and starts scolding the other girls, and surprisingly the camera shows her butt.

Cover girl of the week:

heather kuzmich

Once again, Heather! :) She has amazingly won 5 Cover Girl of the week consistently. Go Heather!

Bonus:

The music video which features the girls in Enrique Iglesias’ music video ‘Tired Of Being Sorry’. There are two versions, the first was shot before ANTM9. This is the ANTM version.

Please leave comments. Really appreciate it! )
