According to Snitchseeker a new interview,for Equus promo of course,Richard Griffiths has spoken about Dan and the bringing to Broadway of the modern Equus revival-""Work is strange," he says. "It's sort of getting more significant and getting more attention. I cannot tell you why that is. I'm the oldest overnight sensation in recorded history." Quote:"I know a lot of tickets are sold in order to have a look at Daniel's body," Griffiths says. "He's completely cool about it." And, adds Griffiths, who affectionately calls Radcliffe "cunning," the young actor has spent the past two years working on his physique. Quote:He's watched with mild amusement as his co-star Radcliffe's profile has soared. "He's the polar opposite of my experience: He's 19 and a multimillionaire. What's not to want about that?" Read the full thing at:'S PAGE are reporting that:"Mr. Griffith was born in England's Stockton-on-Tees and raised by parents who were both deaf and mute. Thea Sharrock the director of Equus believes that experience has contributed to his craft:"The first language he learned was sign. And therefore his ability to listen to people with his eyes as well as his ears is incredible," Sharrock says. "He has a unique talent for listening." "Also,from ss i have picked up a scan of a german magazine article on Half-Blood Prince which shows Michael Gambon,David Yates and the crew hard at work on a Great Hall scene.Check it out in the general album soon.While we're on Hbp,there has aparantly been a 'new' trailer submitted to The British Board of Film Classification."The British Board of Film Classification website has been updated, noting that Warner Brothers submitted a new Half-Blood Prince trailer to them for review. We don't know when they did this but the website states that as of yesterday the 1 minute 31 seconds trailer was passed with a PG (Parental Guidance) certificate."Hmm,only PG?When GOF and Ootp were 12PG??I guess there's no Voldemort in this one,but HBP was a pretty dark book,wasn't it.Anyway,we'll keep you updated as to if this trailer emerges.According to Leaky,Warner Bros say that there is little chance of this trailer being released soon.Still with Snitchseeker(God,they're great),reports that; "J.K. Rowling has designed a glass pane which is to be raffled off in aid of Give Light, a project supporting the renewal of St. Martin-in-the-Fields church in Trafalgar Square, London, England." hane emerged.Raffle tickets are just £10(they same price as getting into Alnwich) and can be bought at: pic will be up of the windowpane momentarily.I think this is a more equal opportunity auction than you usual,if-i-am-rich-i-can-make-the-top-bid-and-buy-something-signed-by-jo one.GOOD LUCK!

Rowling stained glass for auction.jpg..TABLE>While we're on Jo,she has won some awards,according to Leaky:"J. K. Rowling and honors she recently received. First, the Mythopoeic Society, which is a non-profit agency promoting the study and enjoyment of mythic literature, has chosen Ms. Rowling the winner of its Mythopoeic Fantasy Award for Children's Literature. This award "honors books for younger readers (from "Young Adults" to picture books for beginning readers), in the tradition of The Hobbit or The Chronicles of Narnia." J. K. Rowling was chosen by society members for this award which nominates and awards authors for their work annually."Also,through my own inquisitive nature,i found an article in yesterday's Independant stating that,according to a new survey,Jo is the third best-loved writer in the nation after Enid Byton and Roald Dahl.Also,Philosopher's Stone is nearly 11 years old!Can you believe it?!Leaky are reminding fans that a special anniversary edition will hit shelves in September.Mugglenet:"Wrock for Darfur!Wrock for Darfur – an all-day Harry Potter-themed festival organized to raise awareness about the genocide in Darfur – will be held from noon to 9 PM this Saturday at Waryas Park in Poughkeepsie. This wonderful collaboration by a small group of teenagers will feature a massive wizard rock concert, vendors, food, games, and even an elaborate Horcrux Hunt! "Finally,in Potter-land,the Phelps twins,better known as those mischievious Weasley Twins(*sob*Fred),have attended the 2008 Games Convention.Picture to follow of James and Oliver playing Fifa 2009!"Actors James and Oliver Phelps (Fred and George Weasley), attended Games Convention 2008 earlier today in Leipzig, Germany, where they promoted and tested the Half-Blood Prince video game."Odd that they're promoting it when the release date is uncertain due to the sudden change of film release date...."G4TV has an entire run-through from the first day of the conference, and notes when the twins were present to promote the game:Quote:9:40AM - Harvey Elliott, Bright Lights Studio, announces Monopoly with 22 cities worldwide on the board. Then he announces a world-record Monopoly game playing stunt to take place next Wednesday. Shows trailer for Littlest Pet Shop. Little games..."nut feast" mode...not a joke. For the Wii and DS. Then he shows a new trailer for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince game, and James and Oliver Phelps, who play the Weasley twins in the movies, come out and play it. Castable spells, potions, story play, Quidditch. Pretty amazing looking. "

In site news,i will upload my Britain pics,bit by bit,and some short soundless videos of various locations shortly...
