Some Kind Of Magic?!

The best thing about Harry Potter (besides, well, everything) is that it’s timeless. Fans of the series are always finding new ways to re-create things, from amazing fan art to a real-life bar, and this incredible stop-motion video is the latest creation.

 

Using the pages from Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, unPOP artists created Hogwarts like you’ve never seen it before. They built this incredible short film frame by frame, taking over a month to produce the one-minute video — talk about dedication! “We are huge fans J.K. Rowling,” the video caption explains. Hopefully this masterpiece will make its way to the author’s screen; after all, it’s dedicated to her. Watch the incredible results come to life for yourself and then read up on all things Harry Potter.

Ronda Rousey is not someone you want as your enemy.

Justin Bieber made the mistake of dissing her kid sister earlier this year, and the MMA fighter has not forgotten.

Rousey’s 16-year-old sister was unimpressed by everyone at the Cannes Film festival — except Justin Bieber. So Rousey approached Bieber, who was taking pictures with other girls, only to get shot down immediately.

And then her sister uttered the five most heartbreaking words a teen girl can say: “I’m not a Belieber anymore.”

It is worth noting that Bieber is bros with Rousey’s sworn enemy, Floyd Mayweather, because every celebrity beef has an appetizer.

It’s ok, though, because Rousey has Beyoncé on her side.

Whoever said curiosity killed the cat is well… pretty much exactly right!

Here, this poor leopard must be feeling pretty embarrassed!  He’s supposed to be a big, intimidating cat but, now, not so much… here he is, with his head stuck in a pot.

The North Indian leopard had apparently been attempting to drink water from a local village pot when his head became entrapped in the container. After tranquilizing the animal, officials required more than 6 hours to free the leopard from his potted prison.

The leopard was later released back into the wild.

Just goes to show — curiosity wins over all cats, no matter how big!

“It’s my theme song,” Bindi said. “My dad liked that song. My mum liked that song.”

Judge Carrie Ann Inaba continued her trend of longing for the glory days of three decades ago.

“If this was 30 years ago, I would want to be your best friend, because your energy was so contagious,” Inaba told Bindi. “The way you attacked every pointed toe was beautiful.”

Bindi told PEOPLE she’s more used to documentary filmmaking, where wildlife, not her, is not the focus.

“I’m in a sequin dress and I’m kicking my legs! I was quite nervous. So I was singing ‘Eye of the Tiger,’ ” she said.

This video of an elderly man surprising his wife at the airport has had over 60 million hits on Facebook alone – so what’s all the fuss about?

He is smartly dressed with a bouquet of pink flowers, waiting at the arrivals gate.He doesn’t know that he is being secretly filmed as his wife walks through the gate and into his arms. He smiles and gives her a kiss upon her arrival.

The video was filmed at the Van Nuys Flyaway in LA and it goes for 30 seconds and there’s nothing massive or groundbreaking that happens – but the fact that it’s gone viral is a pretty sweet reflection that the world still believes in love.

The original youtube user who posted the photo captioned the video:

“As I was waiting to get onto the bus at Van Nuys Flyaway, I notice this old man standing with roses and chocolates in his hand waiting for his wife to come from the airport. 

“This shows the epitome of love. My heart melted and it showed me that this kind of love exists. Hopefully these two lovely people who are in the video can see this.”

Watch the video to see what all the fuss is about! Just so adorable!

There’s nothing like breaking your fall on a $1.5 million painting.

It’s enough to cause curators to break out in cold sweats: the sight of a museum visitor tumbling right into a valuable, centuries-old painting at a busy exhibition.

A Taiwanese schoolboy, 12, did just that on a visit to a Leonardo da Vinci-themed show in Taipei, tripping up while admiring the exhibits.

When he put out his hand to steady himself, he tore a hole “the size of a fist” in a $1.5 million artwork.

“The boy was probably too concentrated in listening to what the guide was saying, and therefore stumbled,” said Sun Chi-hsuan, one of the exhibition’s organizers.

The incident, at Taipei’s Huashan 1914 creative arts center, was captured on closed-circuit television footage from inside the gallery.

"Flowers" by Paolo Porpora  

“Flowers,” by 17th-century Italian Baroque artist Paolo Porpora, was one of 55 pieces on display in “The Face of Leonardo, Images of a Genius” exhibition.

But Sun said the cost of repairs to the damaged painting would be covered by insurance, meaning the boy and his family won’t be asked to pay up.

“I’m actually thinking of asking the boy back to be a volunteer in the exhibition for one day,” Sun said, “as a penalty.”

The painting is undergoing restoration by experts in Taipei.

“We will begin the restoration work by … mending the part that was torn on the back,” said Leo Tsai, a fine art restorer. “We will then turn to restoring the paints on the front side.”

Curator Andrea Rossi was left dumbfounded by news of the accident, according to Sun.

“When I told the curator, he was so shocked that for two to three minutes he couldn’t utter a single word,” Sun said. “But he was actually most worried that the boy and his family would put too much pressure on themselves.”

Before the show began, Sun said the curator gave its organizers special approval to allow visitors closer access to the paintings on display.

“This is a one-off accident,” Sun insisted. “I believe if viewers are placed so far away in the distance that the paintings won’t be destroyed if someone stumbles, they won’t be able to appreciate the paintings to the full extent.”

Since news of the accident, visitor numbers at the show have gone up, but the restricted area in front of each painting has been enlarged to prevent further mishaps.
