17:11 (19.06.03) - Important announcement:
As every single person in the free world already knows, the new Harry Potter book comes out on Saturday. Times zones being what they are, obsessed fans being what they are, and midnight book sales being what they are, I expect this could become an issue within the next 24 hours even though the book won't even be available here yet. The issue is as follows:

Spoilers suck. A lot. Generally, I'm out-of-touch with popular culture to the point that I really don't care. The only movies I tend to go to are the Star Wars, Star Trek, Lord Of The Rings, and Harry Potter movies, and a bunch of small-release stuff. Of those, I have few enough friends in the Star Trek fandom that I don't have spoiler problems, the Star Wars movies I only go to out of some perverse desire to see how bad they are, and the other two I've read the books for and thus don't worry about spoilers. Generally, I read books that are unpopular enough that others don't feel the need to discuss them outside of fannish circles. Some of them are unpopular enough that I've had trouble finding fannish circles to discuss them in, which is a neat trick. That all being said, I'm planning to read the next Harry Potter book.

Anyone who posts spoilers for Harry Potter 5 without placing them behind a clearly-labeled <lj-cut> tag will be subjected to any combination of defriending, rude comments, public vilification and flying munkeys I feel capable of at the moment.


We now return you to your regularly scheduled ramblings.
