    "For the angel of death spread his wings on the blast,
    And breathed in the face of the foe as he passed,
    And the eyes of the sleepers waxed deadly and chill,
    And their hearts but once heaved, and forever grew still!" --The destruction of SennaCherib, Lord Byron

    "Large was his bounty, and his soul sincere,
    Heaven did a recompense as largely send:
    He gave to Misery all he had, a tear,
    He gained from Heaven ('twas all he wish'd) a friend."

  1. Gah I wish that were true. I'd say it's more or less true in the music industry given that most bands actually make the majority of their money off concerts rather than CD sales. However, in the movie and gaming industry, piracy does hurt. If everyone pirates movie then the lesser men like camera operators, boom mic operators, security, ect, they start to suffer and their wages get slashed. Actors, actresses, directors, score composers, they are getting paid no matter what. But if DVD/Blu-ray sales fall short, it's the middle men and lesser essential personnel that get caught in the crossfire.
  2. There are some who call me...Tim? Dibs on Calico Jack
  3. It really really really really depends. By that I mean generally the math teaching guides vary per state, and even then they can vary per district, and even then they can vary per school (I come from a very long line of teachers and I'm delving into education a little myself at the moment). There are a vast number out there to say the least. I think the district I'm working at currently uses scholastic (not sure if they just distribute or actually create the teaching guides) so I would start there. You can also go to websites like http://www.cde.ca.gov/ta/tg/hs/mathteacherguide.asp which have
  4. Can't say for sure, I tried researching it a bit, but I couldn't come up with anything conclusive. One source mentioned that WB owns the exclusive rights to the Harry Potter universe, which I suppose would include Fantastic Beasts. Whether that means they'd have the ability to create a branch off series without JKR's permission, I couldn't say. It's not uncommon for authors to sell off the rights to material that branches off from a main series along with the main series. My guess is that WB bought the rights, or at least leased them, when they bought the rights for the Harry Potter series.
  5. Fantastic Beasts is more of a catalog of the various beasts that inhabit the world. Generally she offers at least a description and tells you where to find said beast. Some of the catalog entries offer interesting stories, but they are pretty small in scale. I could see someone weaving a story around all the smaller stories presented within the book, but even then the book is like 42 pages long. I would assume that JK Rowling knows a lot more about Newts history, and probably would create a story of his adventures as he discovers and catalogs each creature. I'm not sure it's fair to say it
  6. I'm excited about the prospect, but how it plays out may be entirely different. There's a lot of material she can explore from that world, and I have faith that JK Rowling will find something amazing to write about for the film. Having said that, I know there are going to be people out there who are going to think this is some kind of Harry Potter prequel or have some direct connection to him, and it's not. For us educated fans, we can differentiate, but there are those who will trash it because it has nothing to do directly with Harry. What does this mean? It means it's going to get compared
  7. It's an interesting concept. I think the cinema showings are more to push the 3D aspect since not everyone owns a 3D T.V. I'm actually a little annoyed that everyone keeps pushing 3D, but that's a story for another day. I might catch it at the movies if they show it here, but if I don't I'm perfectly content with watching it at home.
  8. We learn who the next Doctor is in 12 and a half hours ...Who else is excited O_O???
  9. I was pretty young when I first started. Probably a few months after PS came out my parents bought me the book and tried to get me to read it. I was actually staunchly anti-HP back then because my brothers made fun of it (never having read it). When you're a young kid and your older brothers make fun of something you generally follow suit. My parents then bought the audio cassettes (no CD version back then O_O...) and got me to listen to them. Of course the rest is history, I fell in love with the books. As time passed my brothers came around to liking them too. I'm glad my parents had the for
  10. Forums have been in decline for awhile now. The old forum boasted well over 100 members online at any given time and it wasn't surprising if you saw 2000+ posts in one day. This was also true of many other fan site forums. It was around 2007/2008 that everything began to rapidly decline. Social media sites offer direct connections to the celebrities themselves and in some ways a lot more content. While I would argue that forums have more insightful conversations regarding various topics, people seem to prefer the expediency that twitter, fb, tumblr, ect. offer. It also kind of feels like the y

  12. You could try a protein supplement or something of that nature. Generally though those protein products sold in sports shops (things like muscle milk, ect) are meant for building and maintaining large muscles. I think it'd be overkill for staying in shape. Diet and exercise are your best bet and it sounds like you've got a handle on things right now. You'll probably end up tweaking your work out. I've added and subtracted things over the last year. I've come to a point where I have my main routine figured out, but I'm still adding and subtracting things. Roll with what works for you. Cardio
