Love For: Warm Bodies


Rarely do I get out of a movie and want to run home and blog about it but this time around I just couldn’t help myself!!! Ever since I saw the trailer for Warm Bodies I started counting down the days until it came out. Not because it seemed super intellectual or thought-provoking but because it looked hilarious and cute! The movie is set in the post-apocalyptic future where there are humans (who are kept inside a huge steel wall that wraps around the center of the city), zombies (who for some reason reside in the local airport), and boneys (what a zombie turns into if they ‘give up’/flesh hungry skeletons). The main character is R (played by Nicholas Hoult) is a zombie (also the narrator and a hilarious one at that) who lives at the airport with the other zombies and boneys who leave them all alone because they’re already dead. R is not like the other zombies though, he wants more out of life than wandering around grunting and eating humans. During a trip the zombies take to sniff out some humans to eat, they find a group of teens in a pharmacy and go to town. This is when R meets Julie (played by Teresa Palmer) who is the daughter of the leader of the humans. He takes her back to the airport and he starts to ‘thaw out’ and become more human as the movie goes on. I’m not going to spoil the rest but it had an awesome ending! This is coming from someone who really doesn’t care for anything that has to do with zombies (no Walking Dead for me). Aside from the awesome story there was another HUGE pro to this movie: (after the jump) Continue reading

YouTube Covers Week: Kiersten Holine

OK guys, if you do not already know about this super talented YouTube-er then I hereby introduce you the owner of one of the most beautiful female singing voices I have ever come across (and that includes famous artists too!). Not only is she beautiful but mannn that voice! I love when I come across a female voice that I actually like because most of the time I tend to gravitate towards male indie bands and singers. There is a huge range to the songs she covers, some are oldies like Bob Dylan, The Beatles, and Neil Young…some are older oldies like Etta James, and Nat King Cole. And then she covers some of the best current indie bands out there like Bon Iver, Cat Power (who I think she sounds a lot like), Fleet Foxes, Beach House, Wilco, She & Him, and the list goes on! I actually find that a lot of the covers she does I end up liking her versions better then the originals, like “At Last” by Etta James and Modest Mouse’s “World at Large” and she REALLY improved on “These Days” by Jackson Browne.  Seriously though,  I challenge any of you to listen to her and NOT fall in love :p! She also put out an album called “Ignoble” which I definitely plan to purchase and you should to0..righttttt here! Now it’s time to share with you my favorite covers she has done because it’s (DUH) “YouTube Covers Week”. So yeah check em out and be sure to head to her YouTube Channel to check out the rest!
