The Courage of One… In Liquid Form

The Courage of One… In Liquid Form

Once upon a time, 16-year-old me had typical teen job working concessions at a local arena. It did have its upside because I was technically in attendance at every concert there and also got to watch lots of hockey fights, but ANYWAY…

One very memorable concert we had was headlined by Nelly. Why, you ask? Because Nelly had his own special beverage that we were required to sell at the show.

The Lumineers and The Hanging Tree

The Lumineers and The Hanging Tree

<span style=”font-family:verdana;”I like hanging out under rocks lately, especially where it comes to Mockingjay Part 1. And now you’re all scratching your heads, and wondering what is wrong with me. Welp, dear readers, I just want to watch the movie at this point, and everything else, trailers, interviews, it’s all just fodder, The_Luimneers509and distractions. Luckily on occasion something good passes under my…

A Powerful Return to District 12

A Powerful Return to District 12

Wednesday was a very emotional day for Hunger Games fans. First we went through the turmoil of being very clearly played with in the game to #UnlockMockingjay and all we could do was joke tweet our way through it. Fortunately though, by the time 7pm ET neared the unlocking % was going up so much quicker than it had the past few hours and then….

THE CLIP. A ONE MINUTE CLIP. LONGER THAN THE TEASER…

#UnlockMockingjay Madness

So remember when we posted on Tuesday about the Mockingjay Mosaic campaign and how we felt better about something like that than social media campaigns that make fans work toward media the studio was ultimately going to give fans anyway?

Things got WAY uncomfortable about 18 hours later when Lionsgate released a social media campaign exactly matching that criteria. Whoops! WE HAD NO IDEA, LG!…

Mockingjay Gets Self(ie)ish

As a collective fandom, it turns out that we like to do things BIG.

A little mosaic sampler action!

Premiere turnouts, trailer views, book re-reads, merchandising, fan fiction obsessing.. whatever! We want it all in massive numbers and full force. It’s part of sharing the love, right?

So it should be no real surprise that the German film distributor for The Hunger Games (or Die Tribute Von Panem,…

Caption Those New Stills

Caption Those New Stills

A few new stills have surfaced over the past day or so, thanks to Mockingay Part 1’s distributor in Russia. And we mean THANK YOU. We’ve been expecting more stills soon, as the various press articles start appearing. There have to be pictures to go along with those articles, right? The character imagesreleased a few weeks ago are great to have, but actual full movie stills are better. You’ve…

Something To Look Forward To

Something To Look Forward To

Over the last several months, it’s sadly come to my attention that there’s a vital part of The Mockingjay story that keeps getting looked over, or forgotten from the fan perspective. The music, or most importantly, The Hanging Tree.

I’m no music expert, But I’m a music the_hanging_tree_by_alys23-d4temogfan– I listen to all sorts of genres, but one genre I listen to in particular has a thread that weaves its way throughout The…

It’s #HungerGamesWeekend Movie Marathon Time

It’s #HungerGamesWeekend Movie Marathon Time

It’s a cool and rainy evening in my part of the world, the perfect evening to stay in and watch movies until you fall asleep on the couch. If you live in the US and have cable, you can do that with the Hunger Games movie tonight on ABC Family (or all throughout the weekend). It’s Hunger Games Weekend y’all. You can watch it again and again for the cost of your cable subscription.

Let’s Go Scan Stuff

This morning the app Our Leader the Mockingjay got a new facet, a partnership with Doritos. Yaaaaay! Okay, maybe not a yay, but if you’re into snack food doused in electric orange powdered cheese, that inevitibly will get all over your hands, and your clothes, and make you look a fright– yay to those people! Doritos love or not, the newly launched section of Our Leader the Mockingjay’s app is…

Oh, The Mockingjay Soundtrack Possibilities

Oh, The #Mockingjay Soundtrack Possibilities

Can you hear it?

No, not the red, orange, yellow flicker beat sparking up your heart (because the buzzing and thumping in that song make it too hard to hear that anyway….) THE SOUNDTRACK RUMORS! THEY’RE STARTING!

We’re hoping it’s just a matter of days before the whole glorious tracklist is announced, but in the meantime we’ll salivate over a few measly rumors.

It's coooommmminggg!

It’s coooommmminggg!
