a {pretty} weekly wrap-up

Pretty neat things I discovered this week:

Yes, there are only two things I found neat this week. That's probably because ever since The Great Gatsby trailer was released I've become completely consumed with it. I'm obsessed.

Even if I weren't a fan of the book, {in all honesty, I haven't read the book since it was required reading in high school, but I do remember that I liked it! It's being added to my summer reading list immediately!} I'd still be extremely excited for this movie. Leonard DiCaprio has become a much debated Mr. Gatsby. But I love him, so I'm all for it. Plus, it's a Baz Luhrmann movie. It's Baz Luhrmann and Leonardo DiCaprio. It's Baz and Leo. It's Romeo + Juliet {circa 1996}.

This trailer is exceptional, even with the Jay Z/Kanye West soundtrack {it's Baz Luhrmann}. Lavish. Stunning. And, if you're anything like me, you'll download it in HD and watch it excessively. And after your heartbeat returns to its natural rhythm, you'll watch it again.

In case you're still with me and are wondering what that second thing I discovered this week was, Sara Bareilles released an EP on Tuesday and... you just need to listen to this song. Please. Right now. Quiet the room, put on your headphones, and listen to this haunting melody all the way through. Repeat.

  1. I too am super excited (and about to re-read Gatsby) for this movie. The trailer looks fantastic and my only concern is Toby Maguire...

    Also, thanks for the new music - listening now and it's super soothing.

    1. I know. I'm not a huge Toby Maquire fan but I'm guessing Leo will overshadow him :)
