Hello everybody! I hope you have had a good week and a good weekend, but now it’s time for Song of the Week week 11. I have become a huge fan of my favorite bands covering songs and seeing the twist they take in turning them into their own. So this week I have for you Bastille’s cover of Fleetwood Mac’s Dreams.

P.s. I’ll get more reviews up soon, I’ve just been majorly slacking and now they’re piling up and I need to get to it.
It’s time for Song of the Week week 10 and it also happens to be Easter, so happy Easter!
Though I’m pretty sure I’ve used this gif before, I’m going to use it again because I’m 95% certain that that is a bunny he’s touching. So for the song this week I have chosen a song that quickly because a favorite of mine. Now rap isn’t one of my favorite genres but despite that I still enjoy this song. I present to you Headlights by Eminem featuring Nate Russo!

It is time for Song of the Week week 9! Since I went to a Blue October concert Friday night, which was hands downs the greatest concert I’ve ever been to, I’m going to give you a Blue October song. Now this one is off their newest album, Sway, which came out last fall and with each new CD they seem to just blow me away. If you’ve never heard of this band, they are one of my favorites and just their music is filled with real emotion when I listen to it.
Now I give you their song Sway and two Supernatural dancing gifs for the price of one!
The song of the week week 8 is inspired by the fact that today is the day Game of Thrones season 4 premieres. Since this is basically a holiday I give you the Game of Thrones theme song. (Here are some complementary GoT gifs)

In a world divided by factions based on virtues, Tris learns she’s Divergent and won’t fit in. When she discovers a plot to destroy Divergents, Tris and the mysterious Four must find out what makes Divergents dangerous before it’s too late.
Divergent is a movie that has been in my top 10 movies to see of 2014 since I found out they were making it into a movie. I approved of most of the cast they picked and seeing the actors and actresses that I have never seen act before was amazing, they all blew me away with the performances. The way they made Chicago look like a ruined, crumbling city was just incredible. I’m still not sure after watching this movie that Shailene Woodley is Tris, but Theo James was pretty much the embodiment of Four. The casting directors knew what they were doing when they chose him. He had the strong, silent, but has a softer side, thing down pat. I also really like Ansel Elgort as an actor, but I’m sorry dude I hate your character in the books and I couldn’t find an ounce of sympathy for you in the movie. Jai Courtney, who plays Eric, was probably the biggest surprise for me in the movie. I really like how he portrayed Eric and the fact that he’s good looking probably played in favor of me liking his performance.
Now, I’m going to talk about the things I wasn’t sure that I liked that they had changed in the movie because I really need to get it out of my system. First of all I did not like how they changed the whole divergent thing. In the books no one knew about divergents and they didn’t go around casually talking about them. I was really upset that they cut Uriah out of the film and his whole bunch of Dauntless born misfits that Tris befriended; to me Uriah is a big part throughout the books. I think the last big thing that really bothered me was the fear landscapes. This is one of the things that I was hoping they would keep true to the books for. I didn’t like how they made it seem like Four was teaching Tris how to hide being divergent. That didn’t happen! I also really dislike how the final fear landscape tests were held in a room with a ton of people instead of just the 4 people watching in on it.
Now that the ranting is done I highly recommend seeing this movie, it’d good even if you haven’t read the books but I recommend reading them anyways.
