2nd Annual "Dobby’s Sock Drive" Collecting New Socks for the Midnight Mission Benefitting Los Angeles’ Homeless Community

E-mail Print PDF

From Los Angeles Dumbledore's Army --

The Los Angeles Dumbledore's Army, the second largest Harry Potter fan group in the world since 2008, is once again using its popularity to give back to the community. This is the 2nd Annual "Dobby's Sock Drive” which began on Friday, October 13th and will run through Friday November 10th, collecting socks at local comic book stores for The Midnight Mission, an institution providing support to Los Angeles’ homeless population.

The Los Angeles Dumbledore’s Army is requesting new, unused socks be donated in men's, women's and children's sizes, which will be distributed by The Midnight Mission to the Los Angeles’ homeless before the cold winter months. During Los Angeles Dumbledore’s Army’s first “Dobby’s Sock Drive,” over 1,000 pairs of new socks were collected, which, according to The Midnight Mission is a much needed donation item often forgotten about.

This year The Los Angeles Dumbledore’s Army has sock collection boxes at over a dozen comic book stores throughout Los Angeles County including the famous Meltdown Comics in Hollywood and The Comic Bug in Manhattan Beach. Several of the participating comic book stores are providing special discounts and free gifts with any Dobby’s Sock Drive new sock donation at their stores (list below).

For anyone not familiar with the Harry Potter narrative, Dobby was an enslaved house elf that was only set free by having been accidentally presented with socks by his owner. Dobby, one of the most beloved characters in the series, subsequently became obsessed with socks, hence the name of the charity drive.

About Los Angeles Dumbledore’s Army

Los Angeles Dumbledore’s Army, lovingly known as the LADA, is a Harry Potter fan group with over 2,200 members. For almost a decade, the 21+ group have been holding for Harry Potter themed meet ups including the award-winning annual Harry Potter Roller Skating Night at Moonlight Rollerway in Glendale and the annual Dressed to the 9 ¾ Harry Potter vintage dress up day at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. As the group’s popularity soars, it’s turned towards giving back to the community in the spirit of what brings us all together: Harry Potter.

Joining the Los Angeles Dumbledore’s Army is easy by visiting the Meetup website and by signing up for the group. Meet ups are held monthly and occasionally all ages are permitted. Anyone interested in joining the award winning book club, or even taking place in Harry Potter themed cooking competitions, trivial game nights or costumed events will be glad they joined.

Beedle the Bard NYC Unveiling; Arthur Levine Interview

E-mail Print PDF

To mark the release of J.K. Rowling's The Tales of Beedle the Bard tomorrow, December 4th, Scholastic's Harry Potter editor Arthur Levine today placed his original Beedle the Bard book to be on display for one month, beginning tomorrow and ending on January 4th, at the New York Public Library's Humanities and Social Sciences Library located at Fifth Avenue and 42nd Street.

TheDailySnitcher was at the unveiling and we have the following quotes from Arthur Levine! Photos can be seen here!

About his favorite tale from the book, The Fountain of Fair Fortune:

"It has that quality of being - feeling like it's existed forever" and has "strong, interesting female characters" and that it "still feels original and surprising; it's hard to be a folktale and be original."

Also, J.K. Rowling did give him a tip to let him know that the book would be coming, which is marked 5/7.

She called to tell me that i should be on the lookout for this. It was a little bit of a surprise how it came; but she warned me in advance ... so that it wouldn't be someone else's surprise.

My feelings about Beedle are very personal. I remember the moment I opened the package and saw this beautiful object that Jo had sent. Something she'd made with her own hands and her own unique imagination. What could an editor treasure more from his author? Only the friendship the gift represents.

Additionally, the gemstone on the cover of his copy is that of a tourmaline, which is his son's birthstone.

Also of note is that after the display of his book at the New York library ends next month, Arthur would like to donate his book to his alma mater, Brown University, and that Scholastic's Barry Cunningham received an original copy as welll and lent it to the National Library of Scotland.

Scholastic is donating three copies of the book to each of 87 branches of the New York Public Library. 

All proceeds from the book benefit the Children's High Level Group.

Harry Potter: Original Motion Picture Soundtracks I-V Availabele As Double Vinyl Picture Discs

E-mail Print PDF

From Rhino Entertainment --

The Harry Potter film series is one of the most successful cinematic franchises of all time and it continues to inspire a passionate and growing following around the world. One key that helped bring author J.K. Rowling's books to life on the big screen was the evocative music created for the films by great composers like John Williams, Patrick Doyle and Nicholas Hooper.

This fall, Rhino will transport you to J.K. Rowling's Wizarding World with a limited edition boxed set that features the soundtracks to the series' first five films pressed on vinyl picture discs (10 LPs). HARRY POTTER: ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACKS I-V will be available on November 17, and is available for pre-order here: https://rh-ino.co/hpsndtrks

Each soundtrack is contained in a gatefold sleeve that is die-cut on both sides. The images used for the picture discs are stills taken from the related films. The one exception is Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, which also features an etching on the last side of the LP. The set also includes a download card so the music can be downloaded.

HARRY POTTER: ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACKS I-V includes soundtracks for: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (2001), Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (2002), Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004), Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005), and Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2007).

The soundtracks to the first three films were all composed by John Williams, who is responsible for some of the most popular film scores in history. One song that debuted on the Philosopher's Stone soundtrack -- "Hedwig's Theme" -- became the main musical theme for the series and appears in all of the Harry Potter films.

Patrick Doyle composed the music for Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005). The film's soundtrack also features three songs by a fictional rock band featured in the story whose members include Jarvis Cocker and Steve Mackey of Pulp, and Jonny Greenwood and Phil Selway of Radiohead.

Composer Nicholas Hooper created the music for Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2007). It was performed by the London Chamber Orchestra and recorded at Abbey Road Studios in London.
