Podcast - Harry Potter

it took me half an hour at the newsagents today at lunch to buy a newspaper because i had to stand in a queue behind loads of screaming children dressed up as wizards. what was the cause of this delay? it appears the latest merchandising book about harry potter is out. here is my short recording about such things....

Have I seen this wizard? If he was in WH Smiths today he was probably infront of me.

what strikes me most about America is how we are reliving the events of the early twentieth century nearly verbatum. military intervention abroad sparks an insurgency we yanks didn't plan for. then a series of children's books comes out and becomes incredibly popular. unlike the wizzard of Oz, Harry Potter has already spawned two films. however, Harry suffers the same thing the Wizzard did - both "Potter" films had the same characters and essentially the same plot. In the wizzard of Oz, the author reinvents the same characters again and again - a child heroine, some ineffectual rag doll, an animated metallic contraption and a big,funny animal.

I do hope we get out of this retro-rut soon because the next item on the agenda is a world war (or two).
