    What would social services have to say about Harry Potter?

    What would social services have to say about Harry Potter?

    This article is written through the lens of social care services as it is today and I will not attempt to conjecture what social services were like during the 1980's and 90's (the time period the books are set). I simply do not have enough information or experience to make an accurate analysis of this. In the 2000’s professionals are much more aware of bullying, the indicators of abuse, and have a lot more information at their fingertips, information about children of concern is more widely and easily shared. Having grown up in the 1980’s and 90’s I may comment on the community and social norms of the time but I do not pretend to know anything about social care services during this period.

    Was dumbledores sister a Obscurus?

    Was dumbledores sister a Obscurus?

    Albus Dumbledore's Headmaster of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry had younger siblings called Ariana and Aberforth Dumbledore. Ariana stopped using or letting out her magic due to an incident with some muggle boys when she was 6 years old, this traumatised her from ever using her magic. It is understood that the boys saw Ariana using her magic through the bushes in the garden, the muggle boys attacked Ariana when she couldn't show them how to do the "trick". This attack eventually led to their father (Percival Dumbledore) revenging himself on the muggle boys concerned. This led to Percival's imprisonment in Azkaban for the crime, although it is not entirely clear what Percival Dumbledore did to the muggle boys. Aberforth asserts that Percival attacked the muggles whereas Muriel (Ronald Weasley’s aunt) suggests that he killed the boys.

    The Sound of Music; Forever Loved!

    Who doesn't love The Sound of Music?! It's my all time favourite film, and I will happily watch and thoroughly enjoy watching it every year, usually at Christmas. In fact my Christmas is never complete without a viewing of my favourite film! The hills are alive with the sound of music, well, my living room certainly!!

    Movie Review: 'Hamilton' Arrives on Disney Plus

    Movie Review: 'Hamilton' Arrives on Disney Plus

    I have a confession to make, I am incredibly jealous of those who get to see first run Broadway shows. Whether it is because I hate to hear of an arts conversation that I cannot be part of, or because I am jealous of the reactions of my peers who do get that first hand experience, I have, in the past, and in an immature fashion, slagged off Broadway presentations as if they weren’t important cultural moments. It was purely spiteful and I own that.

    When I watched Beetlejuice–the movie–for the first time, I wasnt older than eight years old. I will always remember the enthusiasm of my dad.

    Creating My Playlist: Inspired by Hulu’s High Fidelity

    Creating My Playlist: Inspired by Hulu’s High Fidelity

    Like many, during these months in Covid-19, I have been binge-watching many shows (although let’s be real, that was my life before the pandemic). Back in early March, I watched Hulu’s High Fidelity. In this series, main character Rob (played by Zoe Kravitz) owns a record store and obsesses over music. Along with having an encyclopedic knowledge of pretty much any music genre, Rob likes to make playlists. She believes that each playlist has to tell a story through the music.

    A Definitive Ranking of Star Wars Content.

    A Definitive Ranking of Star Wars Content.

    The Star Wars universe is expansive and rather large but with Disney Plus it's now easier than ever to watch all of that content. This list is my personal opinion, I understand that people may not agree with these assessement, but everyone's opinion is valid. Unless you think The Phantom Menace is the best film then you had better leave just now.

    Who is on the other end of the telephone with General Hospital’s Peter August

    Who is on the other end of the telephone with General Hospital’s Peter August

    Peter August has done a lot of damage in Port Charles and he has not acted alone. When General Hospital begins taping once more there will be a lot of unresolved issues regarding Anna and Faison's son that must be tackled. One of them is that the viewers need to know who Wes Ramsey’s character has been talking to on the phone, each time he makes trouble. Whoever is on the other end of the line has been carrying out the bidding for "Henrik" and it’s time this person or persons is revealed. Peter obviously has some underworld connections and people ready to do his bidding. Could his father Caesar Faison possibly still be alive and helping him out, and if not, then who is?

    Netflix vs. Movie Theaters

    Netflix vs. Movie Theaters

    Being entertained is something people look forward to daily. Many businesspeople noticed so they took the initiative to satisfy the audience by creating entertainment services. Netflix and movie theatres are two resources people use for enjoyment. Netflix is a streaming service where people watch content such as movies and television shows. The business has expanded since it first came out in 1997. Initially, it was rent by mail company and was only available in America. A movie theatre is a place that is open to the public where you can sit back, relax, and watch a movie. They have been here for over a century. John P. Harris and Harry Davis were the first people to open the common type of movie theatre in 1905. From Netflix to movie theatres, both entertainment outlets have differences in availability, cost, and recreation that are beneficial to audiences.

    History of drag

    So a while aback I did a post about the history of pride and that story intersects with the story of drag. This story is just as important as the story of pride. So let's start at the beginning.
