Something to remember as we celebrate book seven:
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows was released seven years ago. The fandom spent a long time speculating about Book Eight, wanting nothing more than another installment.
Today, we know that there are at least three new Harry Potter movies ahead of us. We know that there will be a play about Harry’s early days. There are even whispers of a new book or something equally momentous up J.K. Rowling’s sleeve.But none of those are the eighth book. The Harry Potter series was not succeeded by the news of a theme park attraction or by Pottermore. It was succeeded by the same community that saw it through.We are book eight. And there’s a t-shirt for that.

23 women show us their favorite positions

When reality television star and fashion blogger Lauren Conrad was asked what her “favorite position” was on a live radio program a while back, the women listening held their breath. Although we take great pride in the work that we do, most of us could relate to being undermined and belittled publicly at work. When Conrad cleverly retorted “CEO,” it was hard not to aggressively high-five our laptop and mobile devices. The words “hell” and “yeah” could be heard all across the nation.

On Captain America

princelesscomic:

I seem to remember on political issues a lot of white people pulling out the old tired line of “There’s not a white American and a Black America, there’s just America”

Apparently the same does not apply for these folks and Captain America. I’ve heard a lot of people getting upset about a black…

Agreed.

I run a camp for 9 to 12 year old girls and they decided that they wanted to have a superhero day. Many of them even created their own superheroes! It was a lot of fun and great to see a new generation of girls loving superheroes. 

Marvel and DC Comics here are your future consumers! Bow low!

… or we maybe generate more all-ages content and they can be CURRENT consumers!

Excellent!
