For the past couple of weeks, my wife has been hitting the Harry Potter message boards on MuggleNet pretty hard. I like to read them too...it's fun to hear people's (translate: kids') theories and opinions about the book.
Right after the book came out, people were complaining about the spoilers that were showing up in the comments. (Seriously? I mean, what did they think they were going to find out? What were they expecting?) Anyway, one person posted a "spoiler" that the Deathly Hallows was the name of Harry Potter's rock band!
What a freakin' brilliant idea. It's a great name...'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows'. Plus, the book jacket would make a great album cover. And you've already got millions of fans who are gonna buy the album no matter what the genre is. (May I suggest garage metal with some quirky "wizard" sound effects?)
I can already imagine sponsorship opportunities for PotterPalooza...
"Tonight's concert is brought to you by Ford - have you driven a Ford lately? By The Men's Warehouse - "you're gonna love the way you look!" And by Dreamworks Pictures, presenting "The Last Mimzy" on DVD."
"...After the concert, be sure to stay tuned to ABC for the 2008 All-Star Extreme Quidditch Challenge, brought to you by Budweiser."
