The library belonging to the abbey St Peter in the Black Forest.

(yes, it’s actually called that and yes, it actually exists, it’s not a stage prop for some Disney film)

I’ve been reading food-related articles from The New Yorker’s online archive since this morning. Just in case you haven’t heard, access to all their articles from the year 2007 onwards is free until the fall. Read away!

YOU CAN BE A FAN OF SOMEONE AND STILL DISAPPROVE OF CHOICES THAT THEY MAKE

YOU CAN BE A FAN OF A BAND AND NOT LIKE ALL THEIR ALBUMS

JUST BECAUSE YOU ARE A FAN OF SOMETHING DOES NOT MEAN THAT YOU HAVE TO WORSHIP EVERYTHING THEY DO

7 years ago today, the final book in the Harry Potter series came out. I pre-ordered Deathly Hallows from my local bookstore (double the price, I had to skip lunch for a week to be able to afford it). On July 21, 2007, the bookstore opened at 7am to accommodate all the Harry Potter fans who couldn’t wait to get their hands on the book. After I got my copy, I went to a cafe and ordered coffee even if I don’t normally drink the stuff. I wanted to stay awake so I could finish the book. It took me 17 hours to finish it. It was and still is one of the most exhilarating reading experiences that I’ve ever had. It kept me on edge from page one until the end. I remember feeling giddy after reading Deathly Hallows but there was also a great sense of loss. Never again would I line up for a new Harry Potter book. Unless J.K Rowling, on a whim, decides to write another one of course. 

I got goosebumps when I read the last part of J.K Rowling’s dedication because I’ve always been and always will be with Harry even if his story has officially ended.

I caught a bit of Moonrise Kingdom on Fox last night. I fell in love with Wes Anderson’s color palette even more.
