Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Harry Potter
« on: December 8, 2006, 07:20 AM »
I think an unbreakable vow with Dumbledore is out of the question.  Dumbledores very nature is that he is/was very trusting.  I can't see any circumstance where he would put someone in a position to keep a promise or die.

With Snape, Rowling always makes us think incorrectly about him.  In the first book, it looked like he was after the stone, but turns out to be good instead.  In GoF it looks like he and Karkarov may be up to no good, but it wasn't the case.

His training Harry while fleeing the school may be more misdirection, espicially if he is playing both sides.  However, I think Rowling is writing him to be good, probably due to the fact he was in love with Lily and he can't forgive Voldemort for killing her.

Anybody receive their Falcon yet?  I just got my shipping notice I am wondering who is actually shipping this item.  The tracking number was four letters which does not corrispond to any shipping company that I know of.

I read over on RS that Phillip received his by DHL.

I called MR yesterday and they were supposed to call/email me a real tracking number, but I still haven't heard anything as of yet.

Which, like I said in my previous post, Snape will become the new Headmaster of Hogwarts!! It won't be Minerva, she's getting on in years. There's no other professor that can handle the position. Snape was trusted completely by Dumbledore, and I bet he left something behind for Snape to carry out his last wish and take over as Headmaster!

After the way book 6 ended?  I find that highly unlikely.  I thought that Snape took off after he killed Dumbeldore.  I think that it's likely that if he's playing the double agent, then he'll see things through that he might get close to Voldemort for book 7.  And I can see Professor McGonagall taking over Hogwart's for that book.

The one thing that keeps coming back to me is Sirius Black.  Somehow I don't think he died in the Department of Mysteries.  I think he's going to be back in book 7.

Don't forget wizards have longer life spans than muggles.  McGonagall is supposed to be roughly half Dumbledore's age (75 and 150) and he was still pretty spry up until the end.

I'm sure Snape will turn out to be good at the end, but I hope it is more of a he is out for himself thing.  He will help Harry defeat Voldemort because Snape wants to be the next Dark Lord.  I think it would make more sense than Snape killing the most powerful wizard for the good side just to keep his cover with Voldemort.

Great communication and speedy payment.  Easy to deal with.

I keep hearing that TiVo cuts off shows so I never purchased one.  I also haven't gotten around to buying a DVR so I still use my VCR to tape TV shows when I'm going to miss them.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Bond, James Bond
« on: November 20, 2006, 07:27 AM »
I thought it was a really good movie.  I, too, was skeptical about Craig as Bond, but I think he pulled off a "younger" Bond pretty well.  I heard the next one is supposed to be a true sequel to this movie.

I assume they modernized the movie a bit with the Texas Hold'em.  Since I have played poker, it was easy to call the two big hands though.

My brother-in-law bought four Xbox 360's last year on ebay.  He managed to resell three of them for a high enough profit to pay for the fourth one.

PS3 and Wii are going to go crazy after this weekend.  Personally, I plan on buying a Wii, but I have no problem waiting until I can find one in a store.  I have too much stuff to do this weekend so I doubt I'll be able to pick one up on Sunday (assuming I could find one anyways).

With that recurring theme, I think if it were me, I would have just posted a picture by now just to shut everyone up about it.

I'm surprised they haven't released what the exclusive item will be yet.  Order day is coming up quickly.

Torchwood is the spin-off of Dr. Who.  So far, I believe it has been mentioned in every Season 2 episode so far.  Since I'm also in the US, I'm behind what has been shown in the UK.  I believe it has been mentioned in all episodes for Season 2 including the Cybermen episodes.  It would cool if Sci-Fi does pick it up.

LEGO / Lego Sets 30% off at Toys 'R Us
« on: November 10, 2006, 07:10 AM »
I'm not sure if this was on every set they had (since there was Jabba's Sail Barge and UCS AT-ST available), but the smaller sets were available for 30% off at my local Toys 'R Us (Newark, DE).
