Need a blue and bronze Ravenclaw tie

Suppose someone needed, for reasons too silly to get into, an "authentic" Harry Potter Ravenclaw tie. Anybody know where one can be found? The catch: must be blue and bronze, the book colors (the movies switched it to blue and silver and most merch seems to follow that). UK-style with stripes running from the wearer's left shoulder down to the right side would be nice too.

Help me plan a trip to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter!

A friend and I want to get to the Harry Potter theme park at some point in 2013 (I guess during March/April or September/October when it isn't so hot, though the fall is hurricane season so maybe that is a bad idea?). Neither of us has ever been to Orlando theme parks and we're kind of at a loss. And is there a way to do this that isn't so crazy expensive? [more inside]

Where-y Potter?

A couple of years ago I found a website that had a bunch of essays about popular culture. There was a group of them by one author that were quite (sarcastically?) critical of Harry Potter and J.K. Rowling. I'd like to find and read them again, but I remember so little about where I found them. [more inside]
