Welcome to my website. I mostly talk about books and writing, but you never know what else I might chat about. I'm glad you're here!

"Yellow Flicker Beat" by Lorde

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e1S9HUNoI4k Not only is this a new Lorde song, but it’s also the first song form the Mockingjay Part 1 soundtrack, which Lorde is in charge of.  I like running to this song because it’s typical Lorde – it builds as it goes.  But what I really love about it is that it’s Katniss.  This song embodies Katniss.  And I love it.  I just love it.

I honestly don’t have a lot to say about it.  You should just listen.  Close your eyes and picture the first half of Mockingjay.  Picture Katniss without Peeta.  Picture her only desire in the world right then – getting Peeta back.

Because Peeta’s favorite color is orange, after all.  Like the sunset.  And that would be something that would keep Katniss going, when all she wants to do is disappear.

I can’t wait to see how this movie is done.
