This was up on PostSecret this past weekend. I lol’ed. You might too.
Mexico City. Cooler Than Maine
So the MC has beaten all of us Mainers, when their senate-equivalent wrote that marriage in Mexico would now be a “free uniting of two people.”
This is a city that can’t get it’s sewer system working, but damn if they don’t understand civil rights. Mainers (and New Yorkers) this is bad. We need to get on this, stat.
Galleons and Sickles! Harry-nomics
So apparently when the Harry Potter cash-cow leaves town at the end of the filming of Deathly Hallows (part deux), whole economies are going to collapse. Yes. But they have also revolutionized Hollywood (Harrywood? No…Too many opportunities for puerile humor) and the publishing industry. As least according to this article.
I actually only clicked on the link to the article because I thought it might have been that longed-for explanation of the economics of the Wizarding World in JK Rowling’s series. Alas, earwax! But you can find that analysis here, along with a bunch of other interesting essays about the books, including a personal fave, “That had to hurt…Or did it? Injuries in Harry Potter.”
