Weekend Rec #1

It's Saturday, and while I lovelovelove books, I also lovelovelove some other things. I thought it would be a good idea to set aside one day a week to focus on a particular favorite thing (music, film, person, etc.) So that's the main idea behind the Weekend Rec. So here we go!

Music Rec:

Album: Cycles by Cartel 
Cartel are a rock band from Conyers, GA you may have heard of (they sang  "Honestly" back in two thousand-something and I heard it on the radio maybe a million times, so maybe you did, too). Their lead singer, Will Pugh, is occasionally gorgeous.
Who Might Like It: Those who like a little rock and alternative, a good beat, amazing lyrics, and squee-worthy vocals.
Why Check It Out: I got this CD last October, and it became my autumn soundtrack. It's just... so good. When I visited France on an exchange, I gave a copy to my host-family, haha.
Listen to a track: "Faster Ride"

Film Rec:

Film: Heathers (1989)
You know the scheme-queens of Gossip Girl? Well, these girls were being bad and looking good when we were all learning to dress ourselves (or, in my case, not even yet born). Heathers follows Veronica, a popular girl who turns to the mysterious new bad boy at school for a change of scene. If murder is a scene... 
Who Might Like It: Those who like snark (guilty!), dark comedies, teen dramas, and valleygirl-speak "What is your damage, Heather?!"
Why Check It Out: Your mileage may vary, but it's kind of hilarious and Christian Slater is actually good-looking in this one (good-looking being a tiny understatement). In fact, I think I'm going to go rewatch it right now.

Soo, that's all for this week. If you've heard/seen these before, leave a comment with your opinion!

Until next time...
