The Mockingjay Lives — Yes, I’ll Have Butter on My Popcorn (FULL TRAILER)

Posted on by Mel Z

I loved these books. The Hunger Games series made some interesting statements about poverty, corruption and politics. If you haven’t read them…well, you’ve got just enough time before part one of the final book-turned-movie hits theatres.

Mockingjay will be in theatres this November 21st, so it’s time for a good look at the big screen interpretation. Once you get reading these books, you can’t stop — so November is about right.

Serena Ryder Under the Stars

Posted on by Mel Z

Serena Ryder took us by surprise a couple of years ago, when she stomped onto the radio and is now firmly planted on the top of our list of Canadian artists. My 9-year old girl (ok, me too) really, really wanted to see Serena Ryder’s show, so when we found ourselves with wristbands for the Rifflandia music festival this weekend — we had to go.

Planted in front of some large stacks of speakers (with earplugs) while her mom snapped away with glee in the photo-pit, my child become a real fan. A fan of live music, a fan of the crowd, a fan of the music festival and all it’s silliness and light-hearted fun. She became a fan of the powerful young woman that sang with soul, heart and energy.
