Hello, Thursday! Isn't the weather gorgeous? A quote from the musical You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown comes to mind.

Some days I wake up early and watch the sun rise. And I think how beautiful it is. How my life lies before me. And I get very positive feeling about things. Like this morning for instance, the sky is so clear and the sun is so bright. How can anything go wrong on a day like this?

Well, I guess your power could go out.

It's public knowledge that I'm a Harry Potter fan. I'm not the person you see decked out in costume at the midnight premiere, but I've read all the books and own the movies.

So, the 10-year-old Whitney would go bananas for Pottermore — an interactive gaming and reading hub set to launch this October.

Also, if you're a Girl Talk fan, this should interest you. In an interview with Vulture, the rocket scientist of music-mixing shares his ideal 154-track backyard barbecue mix.
