Veronica Mars: The Thousand Dollar Tan Line
by Rob Thomas and Jennifer Graham.
If the impending release of the Veronica Mars movie wasn’t enough, Rob Thomas has one more suprise up his sleeve. Shortly after the film releases on March 14th, Thomas and author Jennifer Graham will begin to release a series of Mystery novels starring none other than our favourite #marshmallow, Miss Mars herself, as well as a slew of other characters we know and love from the hit tv-show.
Veronica Mars: The Thousand Dollar Tan Line will hit bookstores across the nation on March 25th, 2014. Start saving those shiny pennies!
This is one mystery itching to be solved.
Trailer Premiere: The Fault in Our Stars.
This may cause an Alice in Wonderland type of tear situtation.
The Fault in Our Stars, based on the New York Times Bestselling novel by John Green, is exactly what it states on this fine poster, one sick love story. Following the life of cancer-ridden teen, Hazel Lancaster (played by Shailene Woodley), after she meets the one person who changes her life forever, Augustus Waters (Ansel Elgort). A walking, talking metaphor who has a way with words and a thirst for life that knows no bounds, one that will take Hazel from counting down the days to counting the memories being made. Read the book, you will cry a million tears. Watch the movie when it releases on June 4th in theaters across the nation, more tears. I advise a whole box of tissues and chocolate, lots of chocolate.
Damn you, Augustus Waters.
Artist Spotlight: Ellie Goulding X Divergent.
As a die-hard fan of miss Ellie Goulding, I couldn’t help my curiosity when I found out what a huge part of the film adaption of the New York Times Bestselling Novel by Veronica Roth, Divergent, she had become. She’s been part of quite a few film soundtracks in the past but never had such a huge role as she has had in this one and that was the first inkling I got to read the book. The second being from one of my best friends, a beautiful writer in her own right, Clara, who was in love with Veronica Roth’s prose and praised the story she had created. Director Neil Burger has dubbed Goulding "the inner voice of Tris", lending not one, not two, but FOUR songs to the most anticipated soundtrack of the film event of the season. One of which being her hit single ‘Hanging On’ from her album Halcyon except it has be remastered in a whole new way by I SEE MONSTAS which can only be heard on Teen Vogue as well as a brand new song specifically created for the film, Beating Heart. When you pre-order the official motion picture soudntrack for Divergent on iTunes, you immediately download Beating Heart along with Zedd’s ‘Find You’. If you consider yourself a die-hard Ellie Goulding fan as well, I suggest not only giving this soundtrack a chance but also heading out to the theaters, March 21st, and check out her film debut! Not only has she dominted the soundtrack of this film, but also the score collaborating with geniuses such as Hans Zimmer and Junkie XL.
I promise, this is one film you do not want to miss out on!
P.S. Don’t believe me, Ellie Goulding herself lets you in on how involved she is in the world of Divergent over at MTV.
You bet your bottom dollar this picture will be framed and on my wall in the near future.
Fashion Spotlight: Cakeworthy x JAWS.

Music is a huge part of what make films a special experience. The music can make or break a film, it essentially acts as the backbone of what the film encompasses. When film events such as Divergent come around, ones that already have a loyal fanbase that have high expectations for what’s about to be brought into the world, the soundtrack must be nothing less than perfection. It makes sense that you would find big guns like Ellie Goulding and EDM artist Zedd as well as plenty of other incredibly talented lesser known artists such as Pia Mia and Woodkid on the New York times bestselling book-to-film adaption’s soundtrack.
The full track listing can be found here:
- Find You - Zedd (Feat. Matthew Koma & Miriam Bryant).
- Beating Heart - Ellie Goulding.
- Fight For You - Pia Mia (Feat. Chance the Rapper).
- Hanging On (I See MONSTAS Remix) - Ellie Goulding.
- I Won’t Let You Go - Snow Patrol.
- Run Boy Run - Woodkid.

- Dream Machines - Big Deal.
- Dead in the Water - Ellie Goulding.
- I Love You - Woodkid.
- Waiting Game - Banks.

You can pre-order the regular and deluxe version of the album on iTunes as well as via the official website for Divergent (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack). When you pre-order the album on iTunes, you will be able to immediately download Zedd’s track "Find You" and Ellie Goulding’s track "Beating Heart".

Tell Her You Love Her - Echosmith.
"Don’t you run away, run away when you get tired.
Cause this will slip away, slip away and start a fire,
That can never be put out. Oh hurry, time is running out,
But don’t you run away, run away before you tell her that you love her.”
Album Spotlight: Talking Dreams - Echosmith.
If there is one band you need to give your eyes, ears, and basically your full attention to it is, the MTV Artist to Watch, Echosmith. They took Vans Warped Tour by storm over the summer in twenty-thirteen and they look to do it again this year. Their debut album, Talking Dreams, was released on October 1st, 2013 and numorous tracks from Talking Dreams have been featured on shows such as Teen Wolf as well as film soundtracks like the one that was released for the Valentine’s Day release, Endless Love. I don’t know what it is about Echosmith but they have something special, something that NEEDS to be shared. Help them on their train to success by purchasing their album today on iTunes or streaming it on Spotify. If you like what you hear, I definitely recommend checking them out on Warped this summer. Tickets are availabe via Ticketmaster.
Recommended tracks: Cool Kids, Tell Her You Love Her, Bright.
