Harry Potter Pick-Up Lines

Standard

Fellow Nerds!

I came across this article that features a crap ton of hilariously awesome pick-up lines that are as the title alludes to… Harry Potter themed. Obviously, I love them (some are gold, others are merely bronze, but all are still creative) and thus, they needed to be added to my blog. Enjoy! Or don’t. Either way, I do.

1. Wanna go manage some mischief together? I solemnly swear I’m up to no good.

2. Are you a Snitch? Because you’re by far the greatest catch here.

3. Call Ollivander, because I think my wand has found its master.

4. Girl, are you sure you’re a muggle cause I’d swear that ass is magical!

5. I’m not wearing an invisibility cloak, but do you think I could still visit your restricted section tonight?

6. Are you sure you’re not a Dementor? Because I’m sure I’d die if you kissed me.

7. Did you order some Felix Felicis? Cause you’re about to get lucky!

8. Did you just use the stupify charm or are you a natural stunner?

9. I don’t need accio to make you come.

10. What do you say we disapparate out of here?

11. I might as well be under the Imperius curse, because I’d do anything for you.

12. I can be your house elf. I’ll do whatever you want and I don’t need any clothes.

13. You must play Quidditch. I know a Keeper when I see one.

14. Is this the Hogwarts Express? Because it feels like you and I are headed somewhere magical.

15. I’m very interested in exploring your Chamber of Secrets.

16. Wow, when I said “Accio hottie”, I didn’t expect it to work!

17. I could make you scream louder than a mandrake!

18. We may not be in Professor Flitwick’s class, but you sure are charming!

19. I need to learn Occlumency, because I can’t get you out of my thoughts.

20. The Sorting Hat has spoken, and it says I belong in your house.

21. Are you a basilisk? Because when I caught sight of you, I froze.

22. I may not be the boy who lived, but I can still be your chosen one.

23. You must be my horcrux, because you complete me.

24. Did you say “Petrificus Totalus”? Because you’ve made me stiff.

25. Is your basilisk interested in exploring my Chamber of Secrets?

26. Wanna make me moan like Myrtle?

27. Speak Parseltongue to me and I’ll let my snake out.

28. Are you a Dementor? Because you just took my breath away.

29. What do you say we go look for the Room of Requirement?

Over and out 😉

Skinny Love

Standard

Lovelies –

I wanted to share with you a song; a song that I really, truly love, and I have for many years now. It’s had its moments where it makes me cry – though not always – yet it is just so powerfully beautiful that it has to be admired. It also makes me wish I was good at ballet.

The song is called “Skinny Love”; it was originally released in America from Bon Iver’s 2007 debut album called  For Emma, Forever Ago. It was written by Justin Vernon, who happens to be a genius and part of the folk band Bon Iver. Then, in 2011, an English musician called Birdy released a cover and made it extra famous. A few other covers have been released but in my opinion, the original is the best.

First, here’s the original music video by Bon Iver:

Yeah, it’s an “artsy” video; but remember, they’re a folk band.

There was a lot of speculation as to what the song meant, so while Pitchfork was interviewing Justin, they asked. Here’s the conversation:

Pitchfork: Christy once told me that she immediately knew “Skinny Love” was about her when you first sang it to her. It took you a while to mention people like Christy– and especially your ex Sara Emma Jensen– in public. What made you able to talk about it?

JV: I’m not afraid to talk about it, but how do you guarantee it’s accurate? To say that “Skinny Love” is about Christy would not be entirely accurate. We dated and she’s an incredibly important person that I lived with for a long time, but it’s about that time in a relationship that I was going through; you’re in a relationship because you need help, but that’s not necessarily why you should be in a relationship. And that’s skinny. It doesn’t have weight. Skinny love doesn’t have a chance because it’s not nourished.

While listening/watching the first video, you probably couldn’t pick up on all the words. To kill two birds with one stone, here is Birdy’s version (notice the pun??), so you can listen to it while seeing all the lyrics.

Finally, here are two more covers that have gained popularity. I personally love the Das Kapital cover, it’s got a little womp in it that’s fun. The Edward version has a crap ton of views, so the general public seems to enjoy that one.

Well… now that I’ve saturated your day with Skinny Love, enjoy the rest of it!
