How Harry Potter: Wizards Unite Builds Off Pokemon Go

I’ve accepted that I’ll never go to Hogwarts. That letter must have gotten delivered to the wrong house, and even if it found its way to me, a 27-year-old jumping into a first-year Potions class might look a little silly. And yet I’ve craved for the wizarding world to seep into my muggle life.

Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, from the developers of Pokemon Go and set for a 2019 release, aims to do just that. It’s an experience not nearly as immediately sellable as Pokemon Go’s catch-and-collect loop, I loved the potential for this new AR adventure to deliver an engaging, daily dose of magic after spending an hour freeing hippogriffs and dueling dark wizards.

I’ll admit, before learning about Wizards Unite, I remained skeptical of how Niantic’s location-based gameplay could be adapted to a Harry Potter experience, much less one tapping into my fan fiction dreams of living in the wizarding world. But, Niantic and WB Games San Francisco’s initial hook is an interesting one — a great Calamity threatens to break the Statute of Secrecy that keeps the wizarding and muggle worlds separate. Objects, people, creatures, and even memories have been displaced from time and space, trapped and potentially about to break that world-separating seal en masse.

Kanye West May Design Washington Wizards’ Uniforms, But We Think He Could Change A Lot More

In some of the most unexpected style news as of late, Kanye West might be designing NBA jerseys sometime soon. Kanye’s friend, Wale, who, according to Vanity Fair is a “creative liaison” for the Washington Wizards, recently stirred up rumors that West would help design the Wizards new basketball uniforms. Say what?!

Sure, West has style cred to his name: he’s appeared on the cover of Vogue, redone Kim’s wardrobe a few times and starred in Balmain’s Spring/Summer 2015 campaign. The man even showed his own fashion line at Paris Fashion Week, to not much fanfare.

So if the rumors are true, we’re envisioning Kanye’s got big changes in mind, such as:

Better jerseys What’s that jersey, Margiela? It is now. We predict that with Kanye’s designer connections (think Balmain, Giuseppi Zanotti) the new jerseys will be fly as f*** and probably look something like this:

New sneaks Obviously, everyone will wear Yeezy’s Red Octobers even though they might be a little heavy to play in. Put your Jordans away!

New warmup sweats: Sweats MUST look good in warmups when you’re trying to intimidate another team, so a nice, neutral gray is a good way to get your game face on. Gold chain optional.

Sweeter socks: Most athletes like to wear Nike Elite socks, as they’re known for their comfort and support level during matches. But with Kanye’s Kardashian connects, we predict the Washington Wizards will be wearing Arthur George aka Rob Kardashian’s upscale sock line.

Mandatory hair cuts: Hair is yet another way to intimidate opponents in the NBA (think Dennis Rodman). Why not try shocking other players with a new cut? “Hey LeBron, look at MY hairline.”

Wearing face masks If they work in football to intimidate opponents, they can do the same for basketball. Plus it looks red — team colors y’all!

Adult Swim’s ‘Black Dynamite’ Addresses Police Brutality On Season Finale Special, ‘The Wizards Of Watts’

In addition to competitive NFL post season match-ups and the annual Golden Globes taking place this weekend, Adult Swim’s hit animated series, “Black Dynamite” will also air its season finale titled, “The Wizards of Watts.”

The hour-long musical special, which will feature guest appearances from the likes of Tyler The Creator, Erykah Badu, Tim Blake Nelson and J.B. Smoove, will follow the show’s lead character, Black Dynamite, as he finds himself in the middle of a police infused riot during his one-day vacation. And despite the topic of police misconduct leading news headlines in recent months, show writers ironically insist it wasn’t in their intent to be “current.”

“This episode was written over a year and a half ago so it was never with the intent and purpose to be current,” writer-director, Carl Jones, revealed in a email statement to the Huffington Post. “It started as a parody of the Wizard of Oz that dealt with the pre-existing epidemic of police brutality.”

“It’s always important to me to tell stories that are honest and that not only speak to me but the human condition,” he added. “Police brutality itself is a byproduct of black people’s socioeconomic disposition in this country. Institutionalized racism is interwoven into the fabric of the country, police brutality is just one thread.”

Black Dynamite’s “The Wizards of Watts” will air Saturday, January 10th, at 10:30 PM ET/PT on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim.
