Harry Potter's Encyclopedia

Harry Potter fans were sad to see the series end—both the books and the movies.  

But, guess what!  There’s good news.  

J.K. Rowling isn’t quite finished with the wizard and his friends just yet.

The author has announced that she will begin working on the Harry Potter encyclopedia that she has previously promised to write. Oh yeah, she also made another completely awesome announcement.  She plans to donate all the royalties she makes from the encyclopedia to charity!

Don’t get too excited and run out looking for it anytime soon. Rowling has already said that she knows that writing the encyclopedia will take a lot of time.  
Think about it--considering all the people, places, and terms she needs to include, it could take months or even years!

While you wait, feel free to check out her very first adult novel, The Casual Vacancy, which will be available on September 27th.


Tupac Shakur’s Hologram

It also hasn’t stopped him from making an appearance at last weekend’s Coachella Festival.

That’s right—he was there singing right along with Snoop Dogg.

How, you ask?  Well, he wasn’t ACTUALLY there.  Thanks to modern technology he was able to be there in hologram form to perform three songs with Snoop. And he wasn’t the only late rapper to make an appearance at the show.  While Snoop performed the song “Ain’t No Fun,” images of Nate Dogg were flashed on a screen behind him.

It looks like Tupac still isn’t done.  His hologram has joined twitter as @hologramtupac.

Maybe hologram Tupac and Angelina’s leg can become Twitter friends.


Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt to marry!

Speaking of Angelina Jolie

She and Brad Pitt are finally going to tie the knot!  It’s about time, right?!

Anyone who has paid any attention to the couple surely knew it was going to happen sooner or later.  And it looks like Pitt has known he would propose for about a year.  

You see, the actor worked together with designer Robert Procop to design the ring.  And it was a collaboration that took a year to complete!

Since the news about the engagement isn’t super shocking, perhaps you’d like to know a little about the huge rock that the actress is now proudly sporting. Pitt helped to design Angie’s ring and the designer has even said that he was involved in every aspect of the design process. 

It’s being said that the ring is worth about half a mil and Procop has even sad that each diamond is of the highest quality.

And it’s huge.  Really, really huge!

While the ring is unique as of now, you can be sure that copycats will soon be available.  Keep an eye out for them.
