Growing up I was always an avid reader; whilst the other teenagers were out smoking their first cigarettes or kissing, I spent school break-times in the library. One day I was looking for something new to read, and a slightly weird boy from my class pointed out a book about a young wizard named Harry Potter and said it would be the next big thing. I was skeptical. Then I started to read it and really didn’t rate it at all. I found the writing clumsy and a bit childish. Despite not making it past chapter one, I tagged along to the cinema to watch the first film then went to see the second as a bit of a joke. Before long I was up to date with the movies, and despite not reading any of the books, I was very interested to discover how it was all going to end and borrowed a copy of The Deathly Hallows book from my Potter mad boyfriend at the time. I found, to my joy, that the writing style had changed; it was darker, more grown up, and I powered through the massive novel in a few days.
My initial distrust and now love of Potter has made me wonder if I will ever feel the same way about Twilight; I’ll admit I haven’t read any of the books (although I flicked through the first one at a house party and found the dialogue slightly dull and repetitive; in having the Crucio curse inflicted upon me would be less painful) and I’ve only seen the first film. It failed to hold my attention, and as a result I’ve had no desire to watch the rest. In some ways I am curious; I want to know exactly what it is about a sparkly vampire who steals the engine out of his girlfriend’s car so she can’t go and visit another boy that women of all ages seem to find so sexually appealing. All I’m saying is that if my pasty boyfriend wasn’t up for pre-marital relations, It wouldn’t matter if my car was broken because I’d walk round to the tanned boy with the six pack’s house.
Now I’m not the world’s most romantic person, so perhaps that’s the problem. But what is Harry Potter if not a love story? A beautiful, slow burning love story between Ron and Hermione, with tiny hints dropped here and there in the text; from Hermione’s reaction to Ron’s dalliance with Lavender Brown, to Ron’s jealousy of Harry and Hermione’s friendship (which is represented quite graphically in the film version of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – I was taken aback!).
Another issue I have with Twilight is the plot, or lack thereof. Again, I’ve not read any of the books or seen the films so please feel free to correct me if I’m wrong, but from what I can gather it’s simply a story of a boy falling in love with a girl and the story of their relationship from the day they meet until they have a child. The entire story revolves around their love affair. In Harry Potter the characters are embroiled in a battle between good and evil. There are intricate plot details and patterns which JK Rowling introduces in book one and ties up in book six. The books and films grow up with the readership. And of course, there’s the fun of trying to decide which house you would be in based on your personality (I’ve always identified myself as a Slytherin) which is slightly deeper than Team Edward or Team Jacob (ooh which boy is hotter?!).
In the battle of Harry Potter vs. Twilight, Harry Potter is a definite winner as far as I’m concerned. As well as creating a truly engaging story with interesting characters, Jo Rowling also invented a whole new language- any of you muggles up for a spot of quidditch?- and created enough enchanting scenes in her book to inspire a Harry Potter theme park (I’m not sure if I’d be interested in going to a theme park based on small town Washington).
This is of course, only my opinion. Many of my friends really enjoy the Twilight books so I’m sure they have something to offer; only they seem to have nothing to offer me. I’d be interested in hearing your thoughts in the comments.

Finding the information associated with the owner or user of a particular cell phone has become a very lucrative business, and it has done so in a very short amount of time. It was not too long ago that services like the White Pages online came to be, and in a few short decades these outlets have grown in size and application tremendously. Today’s services are employed for a variety of reasons, some of which still include the original novelty and entertainment of the first uses as well as modern applications in locating individuals for profit.
The task of locating the owner or operator information for a given cell phone is called a reverse cell phone lookup, or in many cases, just a cell phone lookup. The companies that provide this information are numerous, and depending on what type of information is needed, they can charge for their services. There are many options for free cell phone lookup information, but these usually only return the minimum information available, and some only return initials and the city of registration for a reverse cell phone lookup free of charge.
Some of the more popular services like www.AnyWho.com, and, of course, the original, www.WhitePages.com, do offer these free search options, but the best and most accurate information is within the paid options. These options allow access to search databases and return much more detailed and reliable information than can found through most free services. Just as laptops used to cost over $2,000 and now you can find new laptops under 300 dollars, advancing technology will force the price down for other technology, including cell phones and cell phone services. While basic services are free now, even detailed cell phone lookup information should be inexpensive or free in the future.
One way to test the accuracy of the information provided through various outlets is to take some well-known information and see what returns are found for it. Using one’s own number is often the best way to do this, and by simply comparing the free results from other providers or even from a search engine like Google, one can quickly estimate the reliability of different information providers.
It’s what people wonder no matter what type of business they’re into: how to get facebook fans. We all know that we’re meant to get a load of Facebook fans to make our marketing campaign that bit easier, but not every one knows how to use or interact with these fans. In some industries, for example the music industry, not everyone is even sure if more Facebook fans would benefit them.
Being involved in the music business myself, I can tell you right now that getting Facebook fans is a important role in your promotion. I know many musicians find it hard to get Facebook fans, but that’s only because you’re used to the mass following of the MySpace days. The thing is, on Facebook people won’t add you unless they’re generally interested in what you have to say or offer. With MySpace you could get an add of any random person and it wouldn’t be an issue.
The good thing about Facebook is the people that add you will be genuinely interested in what you’re offering. That means you have a chance to turn them into life long fans with some follow up relationship building. I’d sooner take 200 friends on FB then I would 2000 ‘friends’ on MySpace. The quality of the interaction is so much better, and these people will intentionally listen to your music rather then just have it automatically play when you go onto their page.
So, now you know you need to promote your music with Facebook, what is the best way about doing that? Well, from what I’ve seen it’s a good idea to create a Band Page tab for your Facebook fan page. If you’re not sure how to do this, check out this article on how to create a band page on facebook. This will allow you to stream your music directly on Facebook, let people buy your music and more.

The term “harper” is usually used by Folk musicians whereas “harpist” is used for classical musicians. The harp instrument has been used for ages.

The harp and the closely related lyre, has been part of almost all culture predominantly used in the olden times by medieval bards, troubadours and minnesingers.
Through time, the design and improvements of the harp instrument gained popularity in the 20th century. Before, the orchestra composers were unable to use the harp extensively because it cannot keep up with the other orchestra instruments due to many key changes and accidental passages found in most orchestral music. With the advent of pedals added to the harp instrument, the limitations were removed. Currently, the pedal harp is among the most popular type of harp instrument commonly used by harpists. This modernized type of harp is also known as a concert harp and is primarily designed for classical music. It can primarily be played solo, as a part or member of an orchestra, or a part of chamber ensembles. Pedal harps are diatonic instruments which are fitted with the double-action pedal mechanism. The pedal mechanism, allow chromatic alterations and key changes. It raises the pitch of given strings by a semitone or by both the semitone and the whole note.
