Pop Culture Wonder...What?

Down the rabbit hole, we go.

And we hereby commit these souls to the deep… Who at their last gave all to the world of the living. May they be remembered forever, until there is no more pain, no more suffering, and the abyss itself shall give up her dead and return them to us.

Obsessed doesn’t even cover how we feel about CW’s latest, #The100. From carniverous sea-snakes to spear-throwing natives to poisonous fog, you never know what’s around the corner for these freedom-starved, space-born teens. Each episode takes it to the next level and no one is safe. Last week in “Twilight’s Last Gleaming” on the Ark, the combined 12 international space stations that came together when the Earth was decimated by nuclear armageddon, tragedy struck in the form of reality. With oxygen levels far worse than they previously predicted, 320 people sacrificed themselves in order to give the human race more time to survive. The tragic part was that they did not need to be as Abby and Chancellor Jaha found out at the tail-end of the episode. Things on the ground are even more tense with the arrivial of FInn’s fiesty girlfriend, Raven, whose radio could have saved the people on the Ark  but was stolen by none other than our fave misguided bad boy, Bellamy. This week, we will FINALLY get some background information on the Blake siblings and maybe finally find out what Bellamy’s motivations are other than for his own self-preservation. ” Catch up on all that you’ve missed by watching the entire series on CW’s official site today! 

Tune into the CW tonight to witness the mayhem ensue at 9/8c. 
We’ll be watching and we hope you will be too!

Birdy | Not About Angels

Our hearts are breaking and it’s not even June yet. With the imminent arrival of the heart-stomping, soul-crushing, life-ruining film adaption of John Green’s New York Times Best-Selling novel “The Fault in Our Stars,” the tracks from the official soundtrack have started to make their appearance. Starting with Charli XCX’s “Boom Clap”, now Birdy’s single “Not About Angels”! Birdy is featured on not one, not two, but THREE songs off of the highly-anticipated film’s soundtrack including a song with Jaymes Young “Best Shot” and the bonus track off the album “Tee Shirt.” Hazel Grace Lancaster and Augustus Waters journey’s barely begun but if these tracks are any indication towards where it’s leading, we’ll need those tissues sooner than we thought. 

The Fault in Our Stars hits theaters June 4th, 2014 and the official movie soundtrack will be available via iTunes on May 19th, 2014.

"Oh damn these walls, 
In the moment we’re ten feet tall. 
And how you told me after it all, we’d remember tonight for the rest of our lives.” 

Fire Within, Birdy’s debut album, which features hit singles such as Wings and Words As Weapons will finally come stateside this June. This highly anticipated album comes on the tail of her self-titled album that featured covers from well-known artists such as Bon Iver and The Naked and the Famous. Her version of Bon Iver’s “Skinny Love” brought her name to the surface but Fire Within will keep it around. Don’t miss this beautiful soul-searching album when it hits stores June 3rd! You will want a couple of these gut-wrenching ballads warming up your summer playlists, no doubt. 

When you pre-order the album via iTunes, you will automatically download both Wings and Words As Weapons immediately!

Ellie Goulding live at Coachella 2014

I feel like I say this every year but take me to Coachella. From The 1975 to Bastille to Haim to Banks, the annual music festival that takes place out in the desert of California had it going on this year. Last but certainly not least, our fave british lady Ellie Goulding started things off with a bang each weekend performing hits such as Animal and I Need Your Love even generating her own hashtag, #coachellie. Oh, the things I would have given to see her perform in Indio. Maybe next year we will FINALLY cross attending Coachella off our bucket lists but until then at least we have videos of her performance provided by the festival’s official YouTube channel. Links below: 

Already researching flights to California,

Trailer Premiere: The Giver. 

The Giver is a widely acclaimed Young Adult novel by Lois Lowry, a dystopian work of fiction that has been celebrated in schools nationwide for years. This year it will be brought to life on-screen by some of the most-highly admired actors out there including Meryl Streep and Jeff Bridges. Of course as a beloved novel, there are many skeptics out there who believe that no one will be able to do this novel justice and they may be right. We hope, however, you will at least give it a chance to you wrong. Brendan Thwaites stars as Jonas, a young boy who finds out a terrible truth about his society and the freedom his people have been denied in order to maintain a lasting peace. 

The Giver hits theaters across the country on August 15th, 2014. 
You decide; would you rather have peace or freedom?

I gotta know what you two did to get busted…

If there is one thing Hot Topic does right, it’s clothing with a dark edge which is probably why they jumped on the chance to collaborate with Disney’s upcoming fairytale with a twist, Maleficent. One of Disney’s fiercest villains comes to life in a shroad of darkness and a dash of morally grey complexities this May, and trust that the fashion line brought out for this most anticipated flick reflects those qualities. From high-collared dresses to bat-wing pullovers, this line is made for those who like their fairytales with a shade of blood red and pitch black. You can currently pick up a number of pieces from the line via Hot Topic’s website

Maleficent hits theaters May 30th in a swirl of poison-green flames and dark purple cloaks! Happy shopping, my villainous friends.

Most Anticipated: X-Men: Days of Future Past. 

The final trailer for the most anticipated X-Men sequel is upon us and it is a doozy. I don’t know about you guys but I have a feeling I will need to brush up on my mutant history to be able to watch this movie, that’s for damn sure. The gang’s all here, past and future selves will collide in the most epic way when X-Men: Days of Future Past hits theaters on May 23rd. 

Stay mutant and proud, my friends!

Spider-Man. Spider-Man. Where are YOU, Spider-Man? 

When you have a badass like Jenna McDougall calling out to you, how can our friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man resist? Australian band fronted by said badass, Tonight Alive, released the track at the beginning of this month for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 which hits theaters May 2nd. We last left Spidey when he made a promise we knew he couldn’t keep, to stay away from the girl he’d fallen in love with, Gwen Stacy. Well we know how hard it was for Peter, we never knew how hard it was for Gwen. The Edge gives us a glance into what it would be like to be Miss Stacy. It is a raw tune that will have the best of us belting out the lyrics with a passion we do not know we have. The line between hero and villain is a thin one which Peter Parker will soon find out. Spidey’s enemies unite in a little over two weeks! 

You can purchase The Edge on iTunes or stream the track via Spotify#nowplaying
