I Share a Birthday With a “Tekken” Character

  Loving this series of Fictional Character Birthday Calendars from Flavor Wire.  What not-real person do you share a birthday with?  April 23rd yields a just ok character for me – some person from the video game Tekken.

Brad Neely: Now We Can Make Love

httpvh://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z3JaOAynaeE&feature=player_embedded Brad Neely is a genius.  I’m calling it.  Not only did he write and perform Wizard People, Dear Reader, a hilarious alternate track to Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, but he also has written some amazing and surprisingly catchy comic songs.  Two of my favorites are Now We Can Make Love, which you(…)

I’m looking forward to seeing him in the final movie of the series (Harry Potter and(…)

I Got 99 Problems But A Snitch Ain’t One: The Best Harry Potter Etsy Finds
