Tomorrow: Super Exciting Day

7 11 2011

I didn’t really fall in with the Harry Potter crowd back in the day.  I didn’t take part in each new release, reading it super quickly, and then fantasize about what would happen.  I didn’t ‘grow up’ with Harry Potter and his pals.  In a way I wish that would have happened to me; it is a unique experience that happens once in a rare blue moon.  I did eventually read the books, all 6 of them two weeks before the 7th’s premiere–one of the many legacies of my late grandmother, whose love for books was well known in our family.

I suppose a similar thing to what the Harry Potter series was to many kids my age was the Pendragon series.  I jumped in (again due to Grandma) in 2003, after four of the 10 books were finished.  From there, the author slowed down, and I essentially participated in the excitement of a new Pendragon book every year until my graduation in May 2009.

However, the closest thing to my ‘Harry Potter series’ was Eragon.  I read Eragon and Eldest very quickly.  I had to wait two-and-a-half excruciatingly long years for the third book, Brisingr, to be released.  That was in 2008.  It is 2011, and after three years of waiting, the final book COMES OUT TOMORROW!

Finally...

I just had to tell the world this.  It’s so exciting.  I am going to bike to the city and buy my copy in the morning.  The day is as good as gone.   It’ll be weird seeing it end…almost 6 years have passed since I read the first sentence of Eragon.  A lot has happened in 6 years.  Just another example of my childhood ending.

I know, I wrote a blog post yesterday too.  Forgive me.  But I’m going to make it up to you by giving you some cool links and stuff!

First, awesome Battlefield 3 Simulator:

Sometimes music videos are awesome.  Especially when they are accomplished on a limited financial budget, and only have creativity.  I suggest watching this fullscreen and in the highest possible definition, if your computer can cope.

Also, here’s some really cool and up to date news for you:

And finally, if you ever wanted the Bible to be acted out by Lego figures, you know have your wish fulfilled:

I cannot wait for it either. It’s been almost eight years since I’ve started the series. Its one of the only things I have in common with my brother.
