Harry Potter 7, the Deathly Hallows Part 2 Wallpapers for iPad & iPad2 (1024×1024 pixels)

Would it be appropriate to wish all the Potterheads out there Happy Harry Potter Movie Day knowing It All Ends Here with the last of the Harry Potter movie installments?

Do you really believe this will really be it given all its successes?

That’s a debate for some other time, but in the meanwhile, here are some Harry Potter 7, Deathly Hallows Part 2 wallpapers for the iPad and iPad2 (same screen size). There are lots of HP 7-2 wallpapers out there, but not many for the iPad. Why? I don’t know. Maybe there isn’t a lot of demand for some. But in case there is, below are some properly designed iPad wallpapers that are 1024 x 1024 pixels.

I’ll be back Sunday with a whole slew of HP 7-2 wallpapers for all other monitor sizes.

Btw, why aren’t there promotional graphics for characters like Albus Dumbledore and Luna Lovegood?

Enjoy! And tell me how you liked the movie cause I have to watch HP 1 to 7-1 first. 🙂

Please click here for hundreds of wallpapers from older Harry Potter movies for various monitor sizes, and Facebook tagging memes!

Bob Dylan

Happy 70th Birthday, Bob Dylan!

Ah, you were so much older then, you’re younger than that now… and may you stay forever young no matter how much the times, they are a’changin’, you rolling stone you!

Man, can you believe the Bob is 70???

I sure can’t… mostly because my main association with him is through his music, and that’s mostly timeless, never aging, so the icon seems that way to me.

For Bob’s 70th, Rolling Stone magazine did a huge number of features this month on him:

Me, I did a meme tribute on Facebook to share one of my favourite Top 10 Bob Dylan songs each day leading to his birthday today. Here is my list, which was generally presented in no particular order except for the last two being my favourite two Dylan songs. It gets too hard to separate the order of the others for me.
