So, i finally caved in to some serious peer pressure and watched Howl's Moving Castle the other week, and can i say, OMG AMAZEBALLS! It's an animated film (which i'm ususally sceptical of), but everything from the unique plot to adorable characters totally sucked me in. Just because of this movie, i ordered the book immediately after and am now waiting with a nervous tic for it to arrive. Like. Yesterday.
I've been on a bit of a music slump lately, even *gulp* referring to the itunes charts *shock horror*. Don't worry, i am now well away from that mainstream hippity-hoppity stuff (though a few, and i mean a few, weren't half bad), and i totally thought i should tell the world my new finds.
From an episode of Buzzcocks i found Love is Noise by The Verve, it's admittedly slightly weird at the beginning but i love that it has an actual tune and meaning. A lot of these 'popular' songs don't have that, just a repetitive bass that sounds eerily similar in every song, and i congratulate the band for getting it right.
Some other likes right now are Numb by Linkin Park and Boys Like You by 360, though the female vocal on the latter is so weird. I was surprised that i liked 360, i don't normally go ANYWHERE near rap, but on this occasion i didn't mind.
Uhh, what else? Oh yeah, i got an ARC of Slide by Jill Hathaway and it was absolutely amazing! I loved Vee's power and how it was involved in the plot, i've never read about this kind of thing before and it intrigued me. The murder was well hidden in a series of twists and cryptic clues, and it doesn't hurt that there's a couple of hot guys thrown in either :D If you're looking for a good read in March, i would whole heartedly recommend this.
Alri-ghty, so that's all i've got for you today, but that should be enough to send your fingertips flying. What are you guys liking right now? Drop me a line and i'll be sure to check it out!
Have a great day,
