Varys from Game of Thrones. Shelob from Lord of the Rings. And, of course, Charlotte.
They can all be found in caves in Pará, a state in northern Brazil. There, scientists discovered seven new species — and named them all after spiders in pop culture.

No, none of them eat hobbits, or befriend curious piglets. But these six-eyed spiders are still pretty cool. Even though they live in caves, they haven’t lost their pigmentation or all of their eyes. (Most spiders, BTW, have eight eyes.) Some of them were even discovered outside of caves. Read more…

Some of us would love to raise a glass to the literary legend that is J.K. Rowling. But, lucky drinkers in Edinburgh can do one better now, after The Conan Doyle pub changed its name to The J. K. Rowling.

The pub’s original namesake Sherlock Holmes author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was born close to the pub’s location at York Place, Edinburgh, and a statue of his detective creation stands over the road.

Someone give us a Triwizard Tournament to win, as we need an excuse to hand over our galleons for this new Harry Potter-inspired activewear.
A new range from Australian label Black Milk, “Team Hogwarts,” is something we’d actually wear — and maybe exercise in (or just rewatch the Prisoner of Azkaban).

There’s a new Harry Potter chapter that was written using a predictive keyboard trained on the Harry Potter series. Let’s just say we’re glad it’s not canon.
SEE ALSO: These ‘Harry Potter’ ebook covers were never released (but should have been)
The team over at Botnik Studios, a community of creatives concocting weird project including the Predictive Writer, gave the world access to a predictive keyboard trained on all seven Harry Potter books. Botnik used those algorithmically constructed sentences to write a new chapter in the Harry Potter saga, and the results, including the name of the new book, are equally insane and hilarious.

In the midst of Drake discussing his plans for a film and television takeover in The Hollywood Reporter, an interesting nugget of information was dropped: Drake is apparently a huge Harry Potter fanatic.
He’s such a stan, he might (or might have already) treat himself to a $160,000 first edition of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone—a copy he’s been trying to hunt down for four years now.

Stranger Things pulls from a known library of classic ‘80s movies, but it’s also a classic story of a ragtag team of scrappy heroes fighting the battle of good versus evil. That’s a tale as old as time —and the secret behind some of Hollywood’s most successful and resonant stories.
There are a lot of things you’d compare Stranger Things to before Harry Potter, but Season 2 has the kind of similarities that won’t escape an observant Potter fan. They’re not terribly obvious references, but that’s what makes them even more fun to spot and appreciate.
