Deleted Scene #1...with more to come hopefully

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
A big Snapey thank you to many of our listeners for providing this news tip. If you have not seen it already check out the haunting deleted scene from HBP which, in our opinion, is all about Snape.

Snape fen can only hope that there is more where this came from.

Remembering simons_flower

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Today the Harry Potter fandom realized a tragic loss. simons_flower--podcaster, prolific fan fic writer, Ravenclaw, mother, and master of snark--was laid to rest in a cemetery in Washington state. As a mentor to new writers, host of the Quaffle Talk podcast, and valued friend to all who knew her, simons _flower touched more lives than can be expressed in the form of a post to this blog. Although her death was sudden and much too soon, it served as an example to illustrate the love and kinship in this fandom. Sometimes pictures are more effective than words in expressing emotions and that may be the case here...

Back from Snape-ing at Azkatraz

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
The Snapecast staff has returned from Azkatraz so be on the lookout for a recap episode shortly. In the mean time, here are a few memorable moments from the con...

Snarky was super naughty, receiving multiple arrest warrants for pooping on conference patrons, breach of employee confidentiality, tampering with mail, and other owl-related offenses...

There was also a beautiful Snape profile at the con...

Also Snape must have escaped from our hotel room because we did have a Snape-shaped hole....

Windblown!Snape Confirmed

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
It turns out that the poster with Snape and his greasy locks blowing in the wind was legit. Click on the image below for the high res version of what Mugglenet is calling the "bad guys poster". Man, what will it take for Snape to lose this "villain" reputation?

Another Snape poster...poor quality but promsing

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
UHP has posted 6 new HBP posters and one of them features Snape. The picture is blurry, but it has some potential.

And I do think it is slightly different than this one. In the blurred pic, the robe and hair are swishing in a semi-dramatic fashion. ;)

Snapecast Meetup at Azkatraz

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Did you really think the Snapecasters would be hanging out at Azkatraz without a snark-a-riffic meetup to celebrate the release of Harry Potter and Severus Snape? We're in the works of scheduling one of our patented Snapey convention gatherings right now so apparate on over to our LJ comm and join us. Details about the time, date, and location for the meetup will be decided by June 17, 2009 or earlier.

Happy Snape-ing!

"It's Over"

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Although the Professor is only featured for a few seconds in the latest HBP trailer, he certainly makes an impact. In addition to the scenes from previous trailers, the latest tease from the WB features Snape hurling hexes at Harry and darkly uttering the words "it's over" in a way that only Snape can do. We've captured a few screencaps which are available below. Click on the link for the larger versions...

Snape-ing one day early isn’t necessarilly a good thing

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
After initially delaying the release of Harry Potter and the Halfblood Prince 8 months, Warner Brothers is now giving us one extra day of Snape-ing and releasing the film on July 15, 2009. Unfortunately this may cause some stress for Azkatraz convention goers, many of whom planned their travel around a midnight release on July 17, 2009. HPEF has yet to make a decision to change show times or convention schedules, but they are keeping everyone in the loop.

Snape has expressed extreme displeasure with this situation as it will inevitably inflict an extra day of lunacy upon him. First Warner Brothers ruined his summer vacation plans and now the increase in fangirling that comes with every movie (especially this one) will start one day early. Looks like it's time to break of the fire whiskey.

Snape fans will most certainly be financially impacted by this announcement as those of us who have already bought tickets to the July 17 midnight showing will have to purchase tickets for the new earlier release date. How could we imagine seeing Harry Potter and Severus Snape two days later than everyone else?

Thanks to Coz X for this tip!

Some Snape on Spellcast

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Most of the Snapecasters have recovered from our brief affair with Rorschach and although we don't have a new Snapecast yet, we did some Snape-ing on Spellcast a while ago when they reviewed a Snapey fic. You can listen to the episode here or direct download here.

While we're on the topic of Spellcast, don't forget their Azkatraz Podcast Play Sweepstakes. So submit your Snapey story ideas ASAP. If we get some crap about Dumbledore this year, Snarky will not be happy.

Some Snape From Japan!

The Japanese trailer for Harry Potter and the Halfblood Prince was recently released giving us all a tiny bit more Snape over which to squee. Here is link to the best version we can find...

It's not much, but at this point, Snape fans will take what they can get. We also have some screencaps of the two "new" Snape scenes...

Snapecast iTunes Problem Fixed

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Since Episode 27 we've been suspecting that Professor Snape somehow managed to put a curse on our iTunes feed. The Snapecast staff believes that we found an adequate counter curse and now have the problem under control. If you continue to experience problems try resubscribing or shoot us an email. Happy Snape-ing!

A Glimpse of Snape in the International Teaser Trailer

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
The International Teaser Trailer for Halfblood Prince has been released and we're pleased to announce that a quick glimpse of Snape is featured! The entire trailer is just over 1 minute and 30 seconds, but Snape is visible at around 1:04....

He's with Draco so perhaps he's on his way to the Astronomy Tower? We also hear Harry saying "Fight back you Coward!" Am I the only one getting excited?
