I make things on the web, mobile and in the actual world.

I've done lots of bits and bobs over the years, and right now I'm mostly working on this.

I enjoy speaking about things I like, most recently this. You can email me if you'd like, and I'm on twitter.

Wizard People, Dear Reader

(viewed 3434 times)

About a year ago now I came across "Wizard People, dear reader" a spoken
word companion book on tape for "Harry Potter and the Sorcerors Stone",
by Brad Neely( http://www.creasedcomics.com/ ), a comics artist based
out of Austin Texas.

Now Neelys comics might not be the best, but his companion bookreader is one of the most inspired pieces of mashup comedy I've ever heard. I've seen the movie with the audio accompaniment at least 10 times; every time a friend hasn't heard of it I insist on putting the movie on and queueing up the mp3 files.The problem with that is that it doesnt synch quite right to the movie (only because it's meant to be for the american version of the movie, the sorcers stone, which I can't get my hands on).

So, I, err, stumbled across this file which just somehow, err, turned up on a bittorrent site with the audio files perfectly synchronised to the Philosophers Stone movie! The internet is a glorious thing, although I would never condone file sharing of course.

If you want to grab it there are only about 3 seeds at the moment but hopefully with your help it can get seeded far and wide. Bittorrent or a similiar torrent client is what you need if you don't already have one installed, I use bittornado which you can get here :

It's really incredibly funny, with lines like "....Uncle porkflaps tries to tear Harrys wig off before remembering that Harry is a boy, and probably, his hair is real..." that just keep on coming. Have a listen to the attached audio file for a quick giggle and to get an idea of what it's like.

You can grab the torrent here:

oh, and I made the picture just to, somehow, add to the funny.
