Potter, porn (?) and productivity…

1) Hurrah! The publication date for Potter 7 has finally been announced (July – if you haven’t heard yet, go to www.jkrowling.com to read up on the specifics). Consider me a bit of a goober-head in that respect, but the series has done well, and has been one that I have enjoyed reading. If you don’t like it… Too Bad… and nener-nener!

2) Porn… or more to the point, percieved images. I figure since I’m mentioning the last Potter book, I might as well mention something about the fervor over Daniel Radcliffe and the fact that he is getting ready to perform *gasp* nude in a production of Equus in London. People are concerned about how it might impact the Harry Potter franchise.

Leave it to the press/media to blow things WAY out of proportion (as usual, right?) First off, the production is in London. On a stage. Unless you live IN London, there will likely not be a big impact. If you DO live in London, and you want to see the production, go for it. The only reason there is this much attention is the fact that Radcliffe is seen as the personification of the character, thanks to the movies.

Second, the target audience for the movies and the books has primarily been teenagers (with a strong second following as “family” entertainment). Equus, last time I checked, was not exactly rated “E” for Everyone.

Third, Daniel is an ACTOR. If he wants to stretch his… um, well if he wants to diversify his acting resume, so be it. How about the media leave some of the “B” list headlines under the rocks where they scavenged them from, right?

*Disclaimer: I am not saying that Radcliffe is a “B” actor, just the fact that he is choosing to perform in a production that will require some nude work, and the spectacle that it is being elevated to is a “B” grade story.

3) Productivity is a wonderful thing. I need to increase mine in my other projects. THe flip side, here, however, is that I have almost made it the to 100 post mark (woohoo!!) Not long ago, I was getting warm and fuzzy for maintaining some consistancy and making it to the whopping threshold of 50 posts. My reason for counting by posts, is that I have generally been only posting about one entry per day (during the week, but none on weekends), so by me counting “posts”, there can be a rough approximation of months that I have been actively posting.

The analytical translation: (# of posts) divided by (20) = (months posting)

I arrived at “20” being the magic number, since I generally have not posted on weekends (yet), there are about 8 days per month that are automatically eliminated, leaving about 20 to actually have posts made.

Sound geeky? Probably. In the grand scheme, that’s part of who I am. Consider me a Class A geek, compared to Wil Wheaton’s self proclaimed major league. I’m not bashing Wil, I’m just admitting that I am, indeed, a geek as well.
