Songs I'm Into Right Now

Here's 5 songs that I'm super duper into right now: 
1. Imagine Dragons_ Radioactive
How hilarious is this video?
2. M. Ward_ Primative Girl
No music video. How sad. :( And I'm pretty sure I put this on my las list of songs I love, but I don't care because it's great.
3. Group Love_Colours
Great song, weird video.
4. Muse_Madness
I'm going to see them in March. Oh.My.Gosh. I can't wait!!!
5. The Killers_Miss Atomic Bomb
Love, Love, Love
And an added bonus:
The Killers_Mr. Brightside
This video goes along with Miss Atomic Bomb. I love how The Killers tied the two songs together.

Oz: The Great and Powerful

I have to admit, when I first heard about this film I was not so excited. I do love everything to do with Oz, but I felt that this would be a CGI mess. I love the low tech effects of The Wizard of Oz. That's one of the main charms of the 1930's film. I also love the book and of course I adore Wicked (the novel and the musical). I just didn't think that a film about the wizard made with today's overuse of computer graphics and under use of plot would be something that I would want to see. That was until I saw this:
Oz: The Great and Powerful  actually looks pretty darn good, if a little bit cheesy. It has decent actors and looks like it might actually have a coherent story. I am super excited now. I'm pretty sure I'll be first in line to see Oz: The Great and Powerful  one March 8th.

New Year

I had decided that my New Years resolution concerning my blog was that I was going to post at least once a week. I know that this is the second week of 2013, so technically I've failed already, but I'm going to over look that minor detail. I don't have a lot to write about this week as I've been sick. I think I'll just share what I did on Monday. I woke up and made tea with a bit of whiskey in it (someone told me it would help with my cold. Not sure if it did, but it did succeed in making me sleepy). I watched Factory Girl (pretty nifty biopic about Eddie Sedgwick and Andy Warhol. I definitely suggest it for those who enjoy watching films about completely messed up individuals). I loaded up on lip balm and had my tissues at hand while spending the entire day drifting in and out of sleep on the couch in front of the Telly. Not and exciting or productive day, but it was much needed.
