I stumbled on this article about how if different authors had wrote the last harry potter book.

someone did a bit on Frank Herbert that made me laugh

Frank Herbert:

Voldemort wraps himself in a snakeskin, which grows onto him and transforms him into a giant version of Nagini. He becomes the God Emperor of the Wizarding World. Lucius Malfoy wanders off into the wilderness and may or may not be dead. Narcissa's sister, St-Andromeda-of-the-Knife, fights valiantly for her family and against its enemies, which is difficult, because some of the family IS its own enemy. Luna Lovegood becomes a Reverend Mother, which means that for a change, all of her odd pronouncements are taken seriously and presumed to make sense. Harry is revealed to be a ghola of a defective mentat that is not being allowed to die.

Ultimately, it is revealed that as terrible as Voldemort's actions were, they have actually saved the world and humanity, and probably galactic civilisation as the universe will one day know it. Harry weeps in the end, saying that Voldemort was always the stronger.

They don't say specificly, but it must be either the Lynch or Smithee versions.  One of the lines is "Not a great movie, but look at that desert" and the mini was not filmed in a desert.

Also, what the hell has been going on with you?  I haven't heard from you in over a year.  I sent a few e-mails and messages and never heard back.

Not much with me, dawg.  Chillin'.  Moderate amounts of illin'.  Learning to model stuff in 3D, and failing miserably to learn to play the guitar.  What about you?

Quit my job.  Got a new one.  Bought a house.  That's about it.

"Between 2200 BC and the 6th century AD, Yemen was part of the Sabaean, Awsanian, Minaean, Qatabanian, Hadhramawtian, Himyarite, and several other kingdoms, which controlled the lucrative spice trade."
