Something Wicked this way Comes.
We know the when: July 11, 2011, at 11 p.m. ET
We know the where: ThePotterGames.Com
Now the question is What?
I solemnly swear we are up to no good, but we hope the odds are ever in your favor.
You could try to use Legilimency to find out what’s ahead, but we are all accomplished Occlumens so you won’t get much out of us. So, instead, be sure to follow @thepottergames on Twitter and Like the Facebook page for details of what is to come.
If anyone has any advice for me, for some reason I don’t have the option to submit in the Customize page, and I know there is some code work I need to do to get the Submit page working. I did something before to fix it but I don’t remember what I did.
Any teachers who are or have taught the Hunger Games?
Hi guys, someone is doing a research project and it would mean a lot if you could help this person out. They want to communicate with some English teachers that are using technology in innovative ways to teach the Hunger Games.
Those interested, please leave your email in the ask box!
We want YOU to write a national anthem for the new, free Panem, post-Snow, post-Coin, and post-Hunger Games!
We will share the TOP THREE anthems (selected by our panel of judges) on our July 5 episode, and the overall winner will be determined by YOU — the Hunger Games fandom — through a poll.
Rules: Submit the lyrics for an original anthem that evokes the spirit of the new Panem. You can write about Panem’s history, its people, the Hunger Games, specific characters from the trilogy…basically, whatever moves and inspires you! We want you to have fun with this! If you want to check out some countries’ national anthems for ideas, there’s an incredibly comprehensive list over at Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_national_anthems
If you would like to compose music to accompany your lyrics and send us a video or mp3 of you or someone else performing your anthem, that would be fantastic! You can also use existing music, of course. If you just want to send us your lyrics, that’s great, too! Just keep in mind that this is a lyrics contest, and that you will be judged on your lyrics, not how well you present them. For those of you that can’t write music and just submit lyrics, if you win, we will arrange to have your lyrics set to music!
How to submit entries: Please submit all entries via email to HGFiresideChat@gmail.com — only one entry per person, please. You can include your lyrics in the body of your email or attach them as a Word document.
Deadline to submit entries: All entries must be submitted by 9:00am ET on July 4, 2011.
Prize: If you win, in addition to the glory of having your anthem be declared the “official” anthem of the new Panem, you will also receive a couple of fabulous mystery prizes…
Lionsgate executives say the film’s intense shooting schedule in North Carolina and cast calendar conflicts made it impossible to put together a worthy all-star panel for the movie that arrives in theaters in March and stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Elizabeth Banks, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Stanley Tucci and Donald Sutherland.
If Lionsgate could afford to fly the cast to San Diego, they really should do that. Sometimes a Comic-Con panel makes all the difference in accessing their desired audience to get the word out across the country. But yea, I see why they aren’t doing it. Especially since it looks like Comic-Con is going on right in the middle of filming in NC.
Lenny Kravitz was at his home studio in the Bahamas, putting the finishing touches on his album Black and White America (due August 30th), when Gary Ross called this spring. The director offered Kravitz a key role in his film version of The Hunger Games: Cinna, the stylist who becomes a crucial ally for teen heroine Katniss Everdeen in author Suzanne Collins’ bestselling sci-fi novel and its two sequels. “Now, I hadn’t read the book yet, so I didn’t know what it was,” Kravitz tells Rolling Stone. “I go out and get the book, read it – oh, wow.”
…He’s currently midway through Catching Fire, the second book in the trilogy. “I’m really excited to be playing Cinna,” he says. “Reading the book, I’m seeing everything – the Capitol, the arena, all this stuff. This world is going to be incredible.”
These last few weeks have been among some of the most stressful for the citizens of District 11. I’m sure that there are other Districts suffering from all the stress of this rebellion also. The Capitol has not only enforced their strict policy but we have also watched the demise of their oh so powerful Gamemakers.
Their weakness is showing in the hellish situations that they are causing for our Districts.
The electricity has been very sketchy in our District, causing for minimal internet contact as you can tell. The peacekeepers have become harsher, beating us and only feeding us the bare minimum. Even though I have the luxury living with my uncle, the mayor’s son, and his family, I still feel for my people. I still work hard to feed the hungry and keep our District safe. I’ve set up safe houses around 11 and have many other people doing the same in other Districts.
One day we will have our freedom and that is what is keeping me strong enough to continue this battle. I have involved two other people into our rebellion from other Districts. They are going to help when the situations in District 11 are too dire and still my attention elsewhere. They will eventually introduce themselves to you. You can trust them. They are good. Though, any message you send I will only see and if wanted, answered privately.
Also, please don’t forget the newsletter/mailing list that we are in the process of making. Send your email to Ginny. She will add you to our mailing list. It is important to be added to the list.
The scavenger hunt will continue at the beginning of July. Keep a watch out for it.
In all honesty, we have only had a few submissions for the t-shirt contest. I seriously recommend more or else I doubt that we will be able to make any.
Also, again, until I know the exact story behind the removal of PanemOctober, I will not be promoting any Petitions. This is only because I must know BOTH sides before CHOOSING a side. Lionsgate is technically in legal standing and owns the rights of The Hunger Games. Though, I do wonder why ONLY they got the kick. I want them back, pretty badly, but we will deal.
If you need a District. Please contact me and I will send you one (I do have a fair process).
Again, I do apologize for my bouts of lengthy absences. I will try my hardest to provide for Panem and my District.
A.N. District 11
IF YOU WANT A DISTRICT, CONTACT THECAPITOLISWATCHING. Finding out the fate of panemoctober is taking longer than I thought…
Isn't calling ourselves Tributes rather morbid, though? It's from the books, it's a thing, yeah, I get it, but Tributes are meant to kill each other.
Now, I don't know about you, but I would rather be a mutt.
I like it because the Hunger Games story is essentially all about the tributes. Yea it’s horrible and morbid, but that is the nature of this story. It’s their story. They are not something created by the Capitol like Jabberjays, they are innocents. Most of the characters in the trilogy have been at one time or another, tributes. They are brave, strong, and we root for all of them until the very end.
This is just my view on “tributes”, however I enjoy “Mockingjays” as well. There are pros and cons to each choice. I guess it just depends how each individual perceives each name.
Russ Bowen our trusted local source for Hunger Games updates, revealed today on twitter one of the locations where the cast recently completed filming.
The old pictures he is referring too of base camp can be seen here. There are lots of beautiful photos online of the Coleman Boundary, aka Big Ivy, if you do a search. Here are just a few we discovered.
What a beautiful area to film in. One thing is for certain the film is going to be visually stunning.
Thank you once again to Russ Bowen for keeping us up to date on the local Hunger Games happenings.
I’ve been dying to be on the Fireside Chat. This was a dream come true, so I was nervous. At one time I lost my train of thought, realizing tons of people were listening. But I was able to say everything I wanted to say, which is great!
