umbridge

J.K. Rowling will be publishing a treat for Harry Potter fans this Halloween in the form of a 1,700 word backstory on everyone’s favorite Hogwarts Professor/Headmistress Dolores Umbridge. It will be available to read for free on Pottermore, which noted the following:

Umbridge is not only one of the most malicious Potter characters, she is the only person other than Lord Voldemort to leave a permanent physical scar on Harry.

The new exclusive J.K. Rowling content provides a rich, 1,700-word back story about Umbridge’s life filled with many new details, as well as Rowling’s revealing first-person thoughts and reflections about the character.

Will knowing Umbridge’s backstory have any effect on how you feel about her? We’ll have to wait unitl October 31st to find out. If it’s anything like this past July when Rowling posted a short story on Pottermore featuring a 34-year old Harry Potter, the site will probably fall to pieces.

There are lawyers who help you with a medical malpractice case, and then there are the lawyers who help you when you’ve been sliced up by the sword of Methuselah. If the later is your problem, then you’ll want to hire Parish & Cipher from the television series “Sleepy Hollow” to handle your case.

This fun video spoofs all those ads for lawyers we see on television. The list of cases they handle is brilliant. Hallucinating demons in the woods? Attacked by faceless nightmare man? They’ve got you covered.

See the video after the break and make sure to read the entire case list.

hobbit safety video

It’s been awhile since Air New Zealand released it’s fantastic Hobbit-themed in-flight safety video. With the release of the final film in The Hobbit trilogy, the time was ripe to make a new one so they’ve created what they’re billing as, “The Most Epic Safety Video Ever Made.” It features all the usual safety tips, but it also has cameos by the actors from the film in one of the few safety videos that everyone will actually watch and enjoy.
