How Much is the Order of the Phoenix HQ Worth? (Infographic)

A couple of months back, we ran a fairly popular infographic about the value of the Wealey family home, The Burrow. Now, we’re back with a new Harry Potter themed infographic.

Have you ever wondered how much a disappearing six-floor house in the middle of London is worth? Well, if you’d read Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, you’d probably be a little interested in how much the Order’s headquarters would have set them back if it wasn’t the ancestral home of the Black family. Fortunately, our friends at Movato have an answer for us.

And while The Burrow might not be the lap of luxury for wizards, for muggles, the Weasley abode is a great place to raise a family thanks to all the space and bedrooms.

The Humanoids: Excuse The Abbreviation

Sorry but today is a slightly shortened edition of The Humanoids. By slightly shortened, I mean that I could only think of eight instead of nine victims. Mind you, with the readership number I usually get, I would have to think that no one will notice. But I’m sure that someone cares that my column was abbreviated because I had to be elsewhere today. I figure that, even though we have more visitors to the blog in a day than listeners to our radio show in a season, most people are here for the pretty pictures.

Anyway, we’ve been working hard on the radio show over the last week. For the next season, we are planning on launching a Facebook fan page, a Twitter account, a Talkshoe account, and a YouTube channel. That’s all the fun technical stuff that involved in running a crazy bi-weekly radio show. Meanwhile, we’re still pulling together segment ideas for the next season. Expect a lot more of us and less of those big feature segments. One new segment we’re going to frequent is “It’s New But Is it Any Good?” where we’ll review new products on the market to see if they’re worth buying. It’s not a great idea but we’re working on it. I’m sure we’ll have a great season upcoming. But that’s then, this is now so let’s roll on. Continue reading
