happy birthday, harry james potter ❤
"I was set free because my greatest fear had been realized, and I still had a daughter who I adored, and I had an old typewriter and a big idea. And so rock bottom became a solid foundation on which I rebuilt my life."
Happy Birthday Joanne Rowling (7/31/1965) and Harry James Potter (7/31/1980)
This may be shocking, but babies and condoms are made of different material

“I’ve travelled around the country for the past five years—it’s what I’ve always wanted to do since I was a kid. When I tell someone that I’m a hitchhiker, they always react that I should be scared because people are dangerous and bad. I’ve learned that people are actually really good. That’s what I want to convey to people: there are a lot more good people out there than bad.”
“Can you think of a specific kindness you’ve experienced?”
“There have been hundreds of kind gestures, such as people taking me into their homes. I experience acts of kindness literally every day—I live off of people’s generosity.”
This was recorded by the Portsmouth Sinfonia in an experiment where all the members of the orchestra would swap instruments with each other and attempt to play them to the best of their ability.
favorite things about this
- literally all the brass starts to get the hang of it and then the crescendos happen and everyone is like FUCK FUCK FUCK??? FUCK. JUST. BLOW RLY HARD.
- the strings are lazy but also the same. like u can tell a lot of the ppl w/ the stringed instruments may already basically know how to play stringed instruments. like there’s definitely a section at the beginning where you hear a good portion going “oh yeah this is like. a smaller/bigger version of what i do.”
- all you hear of any woodwinds is just “pffffttt??? pFFFTTTT???? PFFFFFTTTT I SAID PFFFFTTTT!!!!!” bc woodwinds are fucking HARD and you hear after like the first crescendo half of them just give up. they give up. they’re done. fuck this it tastes weird and my lips hurt.
- that trumpet. that person is fucking TRYING man they fucking GOT this. they may not have figured out notes but they figured out LOUD and they GOT this.
I JUST DIED

Dan: There was this one time where, in this room actually, Michael Gambon and Alan Rickman and - I think Alfonso was kind of coordinating it - took the opportunity to play a practical joke on me
Alfonso: It was very good because it was a bunch of sleeping bags and Dan asked us to have his sleeping bag next to this particular girl that he fancied -
