This next fan project will be in a special section of ACED Magazine. It is called “Word Associations”. I will list out four different things, you need to fill in the blank with the first thing that comes to your mind in association with that phrase. (Please do not use Harry Potter, remember this is going directly to Daniel – he sees enough Harry Potter stuff already; and absolutely NO words like “hot” will be considered!)

Word Associations ::

1. When I say Daniel Radcliffe, you say ____________________ .
2. When I say Harry Potter, you say ________________________ .
3. When I say Rock&Roll, you say __________________________ .
4. When I say drama, you say _____________________________ .

The most original and creative responses will be chosen to be printed in ACED. All entries should be e-mailed to Lam. The deadline for this Fan Project is October 29th.

RadNet Cafe Updated

Posted by jenna on 24/10/04

Staffer Coralie and I have both worked on a few updates for RadNet Cafe. There have been a lot of you inquiring about the tools you need to get started with acting, as well as how to write an Actor's Resume.

A section on “An Actor's Tools”, as well as 2 Example Actor Resumes have been added for you to read over and (hopefully) learn a bit from. You can access them from the ACTING 101 Menu. I hope this will be of some help to all of the young aspiring talents out there!

Soon I will be adding works by fans that were printed in ACED Magazine and sent to Dan in a new Fan's Writing Corner on RadNet Cafe, so watch out for that. Cheers.

They Like You Too, Mr. Radcliffe

Posted by jenna on 21/10/04's ACED Magazine staffer, Kate Mackley, recently attended a Snow Patrol concert. A while back, Dan had mentioned he liked the Irish band in an interview he did with NME in their June 5th edition. While there, Kate had the opportunity to get a quick interview with two band members : Gary Lightbody (lead vocals) and Nathan Connolly (guitarist). It seems this band thinks Harry Potter is pretty cool.


"Connolly grins. “Yeah, do you know what? I seen that in the NME, actually, yeah. Did see that, really. He said he liked… well, he mentioned bands like the Zutons, the Kings (of Leon), other bands. I did see that, actually, yeah. Well, I mean, a couple of the guys like it, too, Harry Potter. I don’ know, I’ve not read the books personally, but I like ‘em (him) a lot.”


Read the entire article : Snow Patrol Interview/Review. To learn more about this band and to listen to samples of their latest album you can visit their Official Site. Incidently, for those fans in the “London” area, the Snow Patrol will be there performing at the Brixton Academy on November 29th and 30th … toung.gif

Franz Ferdinand to Write Music for GOF ?

Posted by jenna on 13/10/04

According to NME, the very excellent band Franz Ferdinand has been asked to write music for the next Harry Potter installment.

Alex Kapranos, lead singer of Ferdinand said, “We've been asked to write some music. There's a section where there's a band of ugly sisters playing and I think, well… some members of Franz Ferdinand may be the ugly sisters in the band. There's an excitement and innocence about those films. I like how there's good and evil, and that's a clarity which is quite refreshing.”

Fan Art, Wallpapers and E-cards

Posted by allo on 02/10/04

Thanks as always to our very talented readers for sending in their artwork of Dan and Harry Potter!

Look for some great new drawings by Caroline, Bernadette, Hala, Adeline, Marielle, Susan and Maggie in the Fan Art Gallery.

And there are some cool new backgrounds for your PC by Zahra, Christina, Danya, Steph, Valerie, Sabine and Luciana in our Wallpaper Gallery.

And finally, with the holiday season fast approaching, Sabine has been very busy creating some wonderful seasonal and general e-cards for our DR-LX Letter Exchange – there are new cards in the Holidays, Congratulations and, by popular demand, Miss You categories. (P.S. Sabine does take requests so if there's a card you'd like to see, please leave a message in the comments system!)

Thank you very much to everyone who sent in their artwork and we're sorry if yours didn't make it this time round. But please keep sending it in – if you have any original artwork (fan art, wallpaper, goodies, avatars, AIM icons, e-cards etc) that you would like us to consider for our galleries, please check the Contributor Guidelines page for details of where to send it. Thanks!

Dutch readers, you now have the chance to vote for Dan as your favorite film star in the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards 2004 in the Netherlands. You get one chance to vote only and the poll closes on Oct 22nd. (Click on “Stem” to start voting.) Many thanks to Natalie for the tip!

And OK, who forgot to vote over at the CBBC Newsround Top Ten Celebrity Poll – last week's poll went to Rupert Grint! Remember, you get one chance per day to vote. For more details of all these polls and more, remember to check our Vote!! page.

(By the way, I have noticed some mean comments about this poll creeping into the comments system – this poll is just a bit of FUN so please keep your remarks clean and decent otherwise they will be DELETED. This would probably be a good time to go and reread the Comment Guidelines.)

Demelza's 6th Birthday, the Fund Raiser, and the Winners Announced

Posted by jenna on 02/10/04

Demelza House celebrated its 6th birthday on 25 September 2004, and was only too happy to help sponsor the event. We managed to raise a fantastic £945 thanks to all of you!

There were over 500 people who attended the event, which started around 10:30 AM and lasted until around 4:30 PM (when the balloons were finally released). Thanks very much to Sue for giving us a few photos to share with all of you from the event. I have created an album and added commentary to each of the photos so you understand a little more about what was going on.

Demelza House's 6th Birthday Celebration Album

I am sure you are all wondering who the prize winners are as well, and they are as follows ::

Cynthia Lyle – POA Movie Poster Signed Personally by Dan Radcliffe
Vicki French – POA DVD

W. Wakins – POA Soundtrack
(name removed at winner's request) - Your Own Copy of the Japanese Screen Magazine with loads of Dan pics, massive Dan poster, other pull-outs, and Dan, Rupert, Emma Stickers!

Thank you once again to everyone who donated and participated in this fund raiser. I know we have been doing a lot of these lately, and we still have a very special/unique fund raiser coming up for Christmas this year, but really enough is never enough when it comes to supporting this magnificent place. Demelza House truly is magic, and the love and support it gives to the children it houses is priceless.

Scans from Greece and Japan

Posted by jenna on 01/10/04

We have a few scans from the October 2004 Japanese Movie Star magazine. You may have seen smaller or more blurry renditions, but I think you will find these to be much clearer. We also have a few scans sent in by Catherine from Greece. Thanks very much to her for those! She mentioned that since POA's release just recently in Greece, everyone in Greece has been wild about “Harry”. toung.gif
