Now watch the hoards come running…
Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight Saga became an overnight phenomenon earlier this year around the time the fourth book was published and the trailer for the first movie released. As you would expect, with every mega-popular franchise, it wasn’t long before Twilight was about more than just books, or even movies.
The newest addition to the collection for any die-hard fan is THE TWILIGHT JOURNALS (pictured, $35). Four keepsake journals with their covers inspired by those of the books, they come in a collectable tin that’s pretty as well as useful. These sets are going to sell themselves, so get in early to bag one for yourself of perhaps as a Christmas gift for you Twilight crazy friend/sister/wife/mother, because this series breaks age barriers almost as well as Harry Potter!
Not too long ago I blogged about our selection of music cd’s and today we got a couple more in that I thought I’d mention quickly because I, personally, love these artists.
Featuring the popular singles Lisztomania and 1901, Phoenix has well and truly entered the mainstream with their jump in popularity thanks to this outstanding album. A mix of several different genres from pop and rock to acoustic and even electro, the cruisy low maintenance pop[ish] sensibility is at once fun and relaxing. I’m looking forward to summer days outside with this as the soundtrack.
Another current favourite of mine is Kate Miller-Heidke’s Curiouser. Including the first single Can’t Shake It, and the track you can’t listen to radio without hearing, The Last Day On Earth. Fabulously quirky and operatically trained, you might have seen Ms Miller-Heidke on ABC’s hit music quiz show Spicks and Specks [last year I think], and she tours locally a lot, being Aussie and all. This girl can really sing!
ps. Continue on to see a topical and HILARIOUS video [language warning!] from a performance at the Hi-Fi Bar, and get a taste for what she sounds like if you don’t already know…
