Download This! (Late-Night Edition)

I’m at the point in my life where I rarely listen to the radio. When I do, I only listen to the classic rock station, anyway. I have no idea what singles are at the top of the chart. I have no idea which artists are in demand. It’s sad, I know. Ever since iTunes…

TV Rewind: The Originals – “Where You Left Your Heart”

Family Drama Hi. *waves* Remember me? I’m the one who used to write those awesome Vampire Diaries recaps. It’s been a while, hasn’t it? Actually, it’s only been a year since the show ended, but it’s been three years since I last wrote about Mystic Falls. Hard to believe, right? It feels like yesterday we…

Girl, Put Your Records On

These days, when you’re strolling down the aisles of your favorite stores, you’ve probably seen something that seems just a little bit out-of-place. In fact, I can bet you’ve asked yourself at one time or another, “Did I just see what I thought I did?” After all, we all thought they were obsolete. We never…

Help! I Can’t Stop Watching DIVERGENT

Lately, I’ve found myself stuck in an endless Divergent loop. It’s always on TV. I can’t get away from it. I have to watch it. Who cares about the hundred-plus films that stare at me judgmentally from my Netflix queue? I know I surely don’t. When Divergent is on nothing else matters. I really don’t…

It’s Twilight Again

A Conversation With Myself An Inside Look Into the Mind of Kim the FanGirl   Logical Me: So, we just finished The Chemist. What shall we read next? FanGirl Me: Well, we have a few books to choose from. Logical Me: Yes. Yes, we do. FanGirl Me: We’ve been wanting to read them for quite…

Book Review: The Chemist

Once a year I ask the book gods, “When will Stephenie Meyer come out with a new book?” The most frequent reply I receive is, “Hell if I know.” After Twilight and The Host it seemed as if Stephenie Meyer had given up on the whole “writing” thing. It took seven years after her last…

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…
