Besides convincing my family to give up marshmallow sweet potatoes (“Because why do you need dessert during dinner?,” I ask. “Because marshmallows,” they say.), the trickiest part about Thanksgiving is calculating just how much food to make for a party of fifteen that includes every dietary restriction from non-celiac gluten-sensitivity and lacto-ovo vegetarianism to I-don’t-like-onions. This means that 15 people does not not equal 15 ... Read More

Still not sure about the technical differences between a remix and a rework, but Kanye has done the latter to Lorde’s first single off of the Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part I soundtrack that she both contributed to and curated. The New Zealand teen’s sparky “Yellow Flicker Beat” that was released earlier this fall, has been reduced to “Flicker,” but the haunting synths are even more absorbing. I’d say it’s the ... Read More
Lorde is once again proving that she is as royal as her name (and her Grammy award-winning single) suggest. It’s just been announced that the singer is set to release the lead single, as well as curate the soundtrack, for Mockingjay - Part 1, the first film of the final installment of the Hunger Games trilogy.
The 17-year old singer/songwriter commented that compiling the soundtrack and working with all of the artists involved was a challenging ... Read More

Thanks to her starring role in the girl-powered sci-fi epic Divergent, actress Shailene Woodley is quickly becoming Hollywood’s next “it” girl. Here, she opens up about sisterhood, sound bites, and staying hippie-dippie.
Dress: Meskita; Slip: Johnny Was; Bracelets: Dream Collective; Ring and Necklace: Gabriela Artigas

Teenage phenom, Lorde, has been blowing minds since her chart-climbing hit, “Royals,” and upon the release of her addition to The Hunger Games soundtrack, it looks like she will remain queen bee indefinitely.
Her cover of Tears for Fears' “Everybody Wants to Rule the World” (currently streaming online), sounds like a dark battle cry. It seems fitting for the bloody dystopian images in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Lorde's ... Read More

As the YA genre has risen in popularity in recent years, the number of female protagonists has also grown in both books and film. Besides the obvious awesomeness of this, it’s especially great for there to be strong female characters in books for younger teens. I remember having a hard time finding many books with girls as the main characters beyond anything written by Tamora Pierce when I was in middle school. (Not complaining, though. All her characters ... Read More
The Hunger Games is officially a phenomenon. People of all ages and tastes are loving it and with such a twisted plot and kickass heroine, who can blame them? America is geeking out together and I'm loving every minute of it. Not only are the fans varied, but so is the film's fashion. From district to kooky capital, there is surprising inspiration to be had. Although most capital citizens are a silly, ignorant bunch, they do get to wear some of the ... Read More
Like many people, I am beside myself over The Hunger Games movie. When I first saw the trailer I felt the sort of excitement that Harry Potter fans have known for years. Do you think they’ll build a Panem Park in Orlando right next to the The Wizarding World? I hope they make it super realistic, with a dome where you have to fight for weapons and dodge swarms of hybrid killer bees. I should start teaching myself to wield a trident just to be ready.
As a ... Read More
