I think it was history.....in a good sense....when was the last time you saw so many people queing up for a book?..........Anything that gets da yoof readin is a good thing!!........In this tecnological age it's good to see people get so excited about such an ancient medium.......At least with book you've got a bit of autonomy rather than being fed all the information through a screen

.......Those obsessives are Kinda loosers, though in a few years they'll be having Harry Potter Conventions just like the Dr Who and Star Wars fanatics........but each to thier own .........If you are really that sad.... you should do more to disguise it!!

being overgrown 'indie' kids we are bound to hate anything vaguely
mainstream.....infact, I remember thinking that even the Sultans had 'sold out' when they bagan to play bigger venues like the Astoria....rather than smaller ones like the Borderline, Mean Fiddler and Camden Palace....................and of course Cork's finest Hi-land lounge where I lost my Sultans virginity.........

Who remembers the Sultans secret 'New Cork Dolls' gigs?

I love the Harry Potter books. I'm uncool and I don't care.

Beware not liking things because they're mainstream. Reminds me of a song - "The Lesson of the Smiths" - MJ Hibbet. "Just because a bunch of wankers like it doesn't mean that it's shit."

Here, have the whole song:

Morrisey, Marr and Barlow changed my life
They made the kind of music that I said I didn't like
Then one day I realised that I did
Watching Take That, in fact, performing at The Brits
Hearing Back For Good the first time
I thought From now on, in life, I'll
Like the things I like with an open heart
The Krazy World Of Rock's an easy place to start
From here on in I'll base my judgements not on baggage but on art
And from that day a voice in my head
Has come to me in times of doubt and said

Remember the lesson of Take That
If a pile of pillocks pretend to like it, doesn't mean it's crap
And remember the lesson of The Smiths
Just because a bunch of wankers like it, doesn't mean that it's shit

You see, I didn't have that great a time in my later years at school
I didn't really like anyone, least of all the kids who were cool
I had to hate their music, and therefore
The Smiths became the epitome of all that I abhorred
But in later years, at Indie Discos, with jumper stretched and specs akimbo
All I lacked was a quiff and a pocket of daffs
I could have seen them playing live, but alas
They split before my foolish pride decided not to be so daft
And when I contemplate the great mistake I made
A little voice pipes up to say

Remember the lesson of The Smiths
Just because a bunch of wankers like it, doesn't mean that it's shit
And remember the lesson of Take That
If a pile of pillocks pretend to like it, doesn't mean it's crap

Now, I went out walking on a walk against a war
And I noticed many banners had seen many walks before
The usual cliques of Marxo-Anarchistic sods
Who'll try to kidnap any demonstration, relevant or not
Well I got so peeved I moved to leave when suddenly I heard
A little voice inside me saying Hibbett, don't be such a berk
Look beyond the gits and hippies and you'll see
Two million people marching for something they believe

So what if there's a thousand fuckwits here?
Peace and love is still a bloody good idea

And remember the lesson of Take That
If a pile of pillocks pretend to like it, doesn't mean it's crap
And remember the lesson of The Smiths
Just because a bunch of wankers like it, doesn't mean that it's shit

Oh yes, if you're dismissing things because they're in with some other crowd
You will be the one who's missing out
Don't wait for a retrospective, come on, get into it now
Or you will be the one who's missing out

The reason that I wont read Harry Potter, has nothing to do with the hype. (Even though I find the over-hyping of anything particularly tiresome) Its because I have never been all that interested in fantasy fiction. The hype just gives me ammunition

I love the Harry Potter books. Read the seventh book on saturday and cried...a lot. I'm a big wuss I know but I really enjoyed the whole 'world' JK Rowling has created- just wish she'd written them about 20 years ago so I could have read them as a kid and not a sad 30 year old!

BTW Dix, Phil didn't queue, my copy arrived at about 9am fresh from Amazon. He did, however, continually try to read bits of the last few pages out to me Evil or Very Mad I was on a complete news and internet block out and determined to read it without finding ANYTHING out! Shocked

And Kel, that's a great song (I think I've heard it in your car), must download some of his stuff...
