7 years ago today, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows hit bookshelves

*hyperventilates*

My friends Juan and Stephanie bought the book and promptly went to The Cheesecake Factory at the top of Macy’s in downtown SF and didn’t say a goddam word to each other besides ordering food. And that was to the waiter, who in turn looked at us like we were freaks.

I bought it at midnight at the Barnes and Noble on 6th & 21st, walked to Park to catch the 6 and got through about a hundred pages by the time we got to my stop at 116th. The whole train car was watching me, I think. Someone asked how it was and I just said ‘what?!’ and then literally ran home to keep reading it.

My then-boyfriend picked it up for me because I had to work until 2am. Then when I got home I read until I couldn’t read anymore, took a nap, then got up to get back to reading and finish the book.

I was on a week-long mission trip that started the day after it came out, so I had to wait to read it. When I got home, I immediately read it for the next day and a half, barely slept, and then crashed when I was done. Then I got up and re-read the Battle of Hogwarts chapters to the end.

Spent the weekend on Keuka Lake with Tyler and his group of friends from high school. It was a lot of fun, and we ate well. I spent Sunday with Mary, eating dairy-free pizza and ice cream. Much-needed, busy, fun weekend.

Watch: Weird Al’s new songs keep getting better. Today he takes on Lorde
Follow micdotcom

The thing that’s really great about Weird Al’s effort is that he’s spreading the wealth marketing wise. “Tacky" was an exclusive to Nerdist; Vevo got "Word Crimes”; and now “Foil" is a College Humor joint.
This means that he has not one, not two, but three big-name video outlets working to promote a single album. It requires coordination to be this good at marketing yourself while working with so many players. It also makes Beyonce look like she’s not trying hard enough.

Weird Al’s album release and promotion is absolutely genius. He’s basically a national treasure.

"Six mistakes mankind keeps making century after century:
Believing that personal gain is made by crushing others;
Worrying about things that cannot be changed or corrected;
Insisting that a thing is impossible because we cannot accomplish it;
Refusing to set aside trivial preferences;
Neglecting development and refinement of the mind;
Attempting to compel others to believe and live as we do."

"This idea — that women can always find another way to get the coverage or care they need — underpins just about every recent restriction on women’s health. What’s another 24-hour mandatory abortion waiting period? To a woman who lives 25 miles from the nearest provider, it’s everything. What’s one more tweak to a law about the width of clinic doors? To a clinic that can’t afford to remodel, it’s everything. What’s a minor policy change that means you have to pay full price for that IUD? To a woman who makes $14 an hour, it’s everything."
