Look, I made a gif of this most awesome wizard at the Leaky Cauldron!
DUDE IS READING ‘A BRIEF HISTORY OF TIME’ BY STEPHEN HAWKING
I NEVER REALIZED
are you serious
I always assumed wizards just ignored science, because the fact that “magic” exists, can explain anything. But there are MuggleBorn wizards, ones who, until they were eleven, lived in the real world and learned science and things. Did they all just abandon that normal, muggle knowledge, like Harry did? It’s always been there, itching in the back of my mind.
FOUR FOR YOU SCIENCE WIZARD
YOU GO SCIENCE WIZARD
can we point out that he’s doing wandless magic too
like voldemort couldnt even do that shit
molly fuckin weasley couldnt fuckin do that
who are you
pretty sure this whole series has been about the wrong wizard guys
Plot Twist: He is able to do wandless magic because his comprehensive understanding of quantum physics means that he is the only wizard/witch to actually understand how magic works.
someone better fucking write me a whole very detailed story abou thim.
This is my life at the moment, lots of graphs, charts, information and interviews. I am slowly, slowly, piecing together my dissertation. Fingers crossed it turns out the way I want it to, at the moment sometimes it can feel like a real jumble. But as each day passes it gets one step closer to coming together. Watch this space! I’m excited for the outcome.
This is one of 3 final outcomes our small production company Sink Or Swim Productions produced as part of our Takeaway show series for the DC based band 50 Man Machine. I was the co-director of the project with Lena Landegger, a DC based artist and Illustrator. I really enjoyed the process of creating this work, from the planning right through to the shooting and was especially pleased with how we worked together as a group. The initial idea came from both me and Lena as an alternate way to gain credit for our animation class at Georgetown, but also pay homage to a favorite director of ours, Vincent Moon and his Parisian based Takeaway shows- a format that has been replicated the world over. Overall I feel we pulled off the style and feel of his work, without simply copying every thing his production company do, adding our own little flourishes. It was a good way to also test out ability to use our video skills outside the classroom and attempt video and sound recording alongside each other in a raw and natural environment.
Going off on my riff about Grayson Perry earlier. My blog title has changed, purely because I love his new tapestry show, and TV series enormously. Captures everything about my own class/taste/blog perfectly. The desire for individualism, resulting in a new kind of uniformity amongst everyone and everything I know- the sheer Brighton middle classness of having a tumblr full of arty fragments, poems, rants and pictures. All hand picked to show exactly what I am about..Can’t wait to see the tapestries in real life. Wonder if in person they’ll pin-point the class conciousness of all my decision making as much as they do when looking at them on the internet or watching them on his TV show.
Its interesting that the bbc’s cultural olympiad output has begun recently, documenting and recording and focusing on British Identity and London in particular. I’ve loved watching these things, from Britain in a Day to the London Markets programs, to Grayson Perry’s exploration of class. Being away from home for so long and trying to piece together what being from England and Britain means, with all its quirks and idiosyncrasies, these programs and output have served as marking posts along the way.
I’ve reached the conclusion looking at what we produce and the things we celebrate and national culture for the individual is very much like selecting your own pick’n’mix sweets; choosing your favorites (bits of popular music, folk traditions and multiculturalism, community and festivity) and leaving out others (monarchy, flags, pomposity etc.) Everyone has their own view of culture and I think choosing what it means to you is about as far as we have got in understanding it.
Anyway go see out the stuff at the BBC (if you have access to BBC iPlayer), its all worth a watch, I promise
Fantastic film shot by my boyfriend Jonny, and made by him and his friends in edinburgh. Excellent work for 48 hours!
This is the film my friends and I made the weekend before last in 48 hours. I shot it all and did a bit of editing. Please watch and give us some feedback for next time. Oh and John won an award for the best original score making us an award winning film!
