If you need another reminder that time's flat circle will eventually roll over and crush you, it might as well be in the form of Harry Potter news.

Today marks the 15th anniversary of the public's introduction to Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint as the three precocious, magical children who found adventure, friendship and eventually love in the halls of Hogwarts.

Seriously, 15 years.



You probably have memories of this, don't you? Meaning you are even older than old.

Here's part of the original press release that preceded the filming of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone:

ATTENTION ALL MUGGLES! Director Chris Columbus and producer David Heyman have discovered their Harry Potter, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger from the thousands of children who cast their names into the hat to play the roles. Young actor Daniel Radcliffe will be the film's Harry, with newcomers Rupert Grint and Emma Watson taking on the roles of Ron and Hermione, Harry's best friends at Hogwarts, in Warner Bros. Pictures' upcoming adaptation of the first in the best-selling series of Harry Potter books by J.K. Rowling.



The hashtag #15yearsofDanEmmaRupert has sprung up around the anniversary with people sharing their memories and their appreciation for the wizarding trio.

By the by, this is what they look like now:



And you're probably older. Much older.

Sorry about the reminder that death is hurtling towards you at lightning speed.

Aug. 11 marks the one year anniversary of Robin Williams' death.

There have already been tributes from news sites and ways to remember him, like which of his movies to stream.

One heart-felt remembrance leapt out from Sarah Michelle Gellar as she posted the following picture to her Instagram.



One of Williams' last roles was on the CBS television show The Crazy Ones. It was a single-camera sitcom that CBS cancelled after one season in May of last year.

Gellar played Williams' daughter on the show and she might have been one of the last to get to know the comedian during the final months of his life.

It's an incredible quote from Emerson and another reminder of one more great talent lost.

"In a hole in the ground, there lived a hobbit." On September 21, 1937, J.R.R. Tolkien published The Hobbit. 75 years later, we're still reading about that hobbit who left that hole in the ground to follow a band of dwarves and a wizard on a great adventure. The children's novel has been translated into more than 40 languages, sold tens of millions of copies, and has been made into an upcoming movie trilogy. It even had a series of sequels you may have heard of.

Thanks for years of adventure, Bilbo Baggins. Happy 75th Birthday!

Set humor to ludicrous speed!
