Work In Progress 

A Beautiful Mess I am a work in progress. I’m a bit of a rough draft. I’m not done yet. I’m not final. Yes, I’m a work in progress. I’ve got a few pages left. I’m still writing this self-titled track. For more Kim the FanGirl follow the blog on Twitter @kimthefangirl and on Facebook

Album Review: Florence + The Machine – How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful

“She’s fragile and she’s ferocious” The dream world, a creation made of myth and melody. She is its mother, its creator; the designer of sun and sky, of storms and seas. She is the orchestra and conductor too; the summoner of harmonious hymns and the mistress of magnificent melodies. She will take you through the…

Random Rambling: Beauty & The Beast, Tomorrowland, and The Muppets

Beauty & The Beast I have a problem, a very serious problem. It has come to my attention that Disney is currently in the process of translating a good portion of their beloved animated classics into live-action films. Jungle Book. Dumbo (Seriously?). Mulan. Pinocchio. Winnie the Pooh. Tinkerbell.  I may be a die-hard Disney nerd, but…

Florence + The Machine “St. Jude” 

Chapter 2 Hear the heavy beat of her heart barely breathing from behind. Another conversation with no destination, another battle never won Watch as the rain pours down upon lovers in the haunted ruins of a former home. And each side is a loser, so who cares who fired the gun He is bruised and…

How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful

This Is Only the Beginning Listen to the ethereal echo, her goddess’ call. A song so beautiful it’s as if it was created from the heavens above. Listen as the strings tremble and the trumpets sound. Watch as a soul divided dances in rhythm and breathes in rhyme. Watch as we leave one life behind…

10 Reasons Why You Should Be Reading ‘Outlander’

“Adventure Is Out There!” With eight novels (so far) making up the series, there is no denying the fact that Outlander is a true epic. But I think you already know this. In fact, I know that you do. I know, because I was just like you. I was one of the many who had…

Press Play Friday: Lily & The Parlour Tricks

“They say it so much better than I possibly ever can.” It was accidental, my discovery, entirely serendipitous. I had no clue what I was walking into and I certainly had no idea where my initial infatuation would lead. Little did I know our chance meeting would cause us to become more than just accidental…

Trailer Talk: The Best of TIFF (2014)

The Toronto International Film Festival officially wrapped up this weekend, after hosting over three-hundred films from around the world. For some, that might simply be a number, an impressive myriad of newly acclaimed movies. Or, some might think of the festival only as an outlet, to distinguish front-runners for this upcoming awards season. To me,…

The Lizzie Bennet Diaries

There’s something I’ve been hiding from you, something I’ve kept secret for too long. You probably already know what it is. You probably know it better than I do. I’ve wanted to say something for some time now, but I couldn’t seem to find the words until today. . . Yes, I am a fan…

Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness “Cecilia and the Satellite”

“For all the things my eyes have seen, the best by far is you.” I had planned an entirely different kind of music post for today, filled with cushy pop songs you’ve probably heard before. I was, literally, in the midst of writing that post when I saw Cecilia quietly tiptoeing around this morning. She…
