Are you sad that you never got a letter from Hogwarts? Silly, you were there along with J.K. Rowling and all the rest of us. Did you forget? Perhaps you were under the influence of magic.

If you don’t believe me then check out the tweets from J.K. herself after the break where she explains how we were once all classmates in Hogwarts’ hallowed halls.

These fantastic lamps are handmade by MaladeeMakes out of wood. The Harry Potter lamps feature a different house on each side with a decoupaged color paper interior to represent the color of each house. You can choose either a stained finish, brown paint, or gold paint for your 7″ square lamp.

The Zelda version includes Link’s shield, the Hyrule crest and Majora’s mask with Navi, Ciela, Tati and Tael along the edges of each image.

Okay so maybe it’s not exactly charmed, but it does look way bigger on the inside. In fact, the Lotus Belle tent is 172-270 square feet of glorious camping space.

“Exceptionally weatherproof & portable. Use it as a guest-house on your land, for weddings, “glamping”, music festivals and more. You can have it up for months at a time so It’s great throughout summer!”

Or it would make a great tent for an extended camping trip finding horcruxes. But you might need some serious wallet charming spells because this giant tent comes with a giant price tag.

Check out the massive inside view after the break.

Sideshow Collectibles did an interesting take on Beauty And The Beast by releasing a Black Cat statue and The Monster Book of Monsters prop on the same day.

The Black Cat Polystone statue is part of the J. Scott Campbell Spider-Man Collection and it definitely captures Campbell’s sensual style.

The Monster Book Of Monsters replica is, well, let’s just say I wouldn’t want it in a dark room with me — but it’s pretty cool looking. It also comes packaged with a limited edition of Harry Potter: The Creature Vault which has detailed profiles of each creature, and some interesting hidden goodies.

Head after the break to see more pictures of both collectibles.

dark lord funk

I’d like to thank Kyle for sending us this brand new earworm. I already play “Uptown Funk” when I’m driving (like, over and over) and now I’ll be switching out “Dark Lord Funk” thanks to this Harry Potter-themed take on Marc Ronson’s song.

It is, as you’d imagine, awesome. Plus, Voldemort can move.

Check it out after the break.

You Tuber Jeremiah Rivera likes making Friends-style mash ups with movies and the world is a better place for it.

His take on Harry Potter actually works really well, especially Neville and Luna. The most recent is an Avengers version which made me realize just how cranky much of the cast can look upon occasion (Chris Hemsworth smiling is awesome).

Something tells me he’s not going to stop at just two.

The biggest ever British Quidditch tournament was held over the weekend at Wayne Manor, but Batman was nowhere to be found. There were 24 teams who gathered at Wollaton Hall and Park where scenes from The Dark Knight Rises were shot.

The host team was the Nottingham Nightmares who fought teams like the Bangor Broken Broomsticks, Durhamstrand and Kent’s Flying Chaucers. Although they don’t fly, they do run about with broomsticks between their legs and play a game that’s part handball, part dodgeball, and part rugby.

Southampton Quidditch Club won the event and even got a trophy for their efforts.

Looks like everyone has buried the hatchet as Draco Malfoy was seen with Fred, Ginny and Ron Weasley having a pretty good time a few nights ago. The group looked very happy as all the actors met up in a bar, posed for some photos, and posted them on their various social media pages.

See their posts after the break.

While his time as Draco Malfoy may be over, Tom Felton’s diving back into the world of Harry Potter with a new documentary that he calls “a more in depth look at the world of super fans”.

While we as fans sometimes worry about things like this because, whether they mean to or not, they can sometimes come off more mocking than kind –– it seems as though Felton wants to showcase the dedication of the fans of Harry Potter and other franchises:

It was a massive insight for me, going behind the ropes and seeing what people actually do to stand behind a railing at an event. You don’t really think about the three hours it took them to stand there and get the best spot.

The one hour documentary is estimated to air on BBC3 in either April or May and, along with the fan interviews, will also include interviews with Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, and even J.K. Rowling herself.

Speaking with JustJared, Felton talked more about his plans for the documentary:

It’s just kind of a chance for me to have a more in depth look at the world of super fans and these people that have followed franchises–kind of at the root of why Harry Potter was so successful. It had such an active fan base. It’s allowed people to be passionate about stuff that maybe they couldn’t be so open with in previous years. It’s kind of a look into that, it’s a road trip journey with me narrating.

Between Joffrey becoming a huge humanitarian and Draco Malfoy openly associating with Muggles, it’s no wonder we learn to love the bad guys in our favorite shows and movies.
