What I'm "Thank-full" For...

Hey Everyone,

As is my own personal tradition, this time of year I like to come up with a list of all the things I'm grateful for. And do you know what was in my top 5? You guessed it! The Hunger Games (and all that it's related to).
Now I know, I know some of you less enthusiastic people (= anyone NOT completely obsessed with the HG series) might be wondering what in the world HG is doing in my top 5 slot of What I’m “Thank-full” For In 2010 list. Well, I’ll tell you. The Hunger Games are amazing. They really are, they’re definitely one of the best book series I’ve ever read (and probably ever will). And if you’re here reading this you probably agree.
So I would just like to encourage you this Thanksgiving to create your OWN list of What I’m “Thank-full” For In 2010. HG doesn’t have to be in your top 5, but I would encourage you to put it somewhere on the list! :) Even if you don’t live here in the US or you don’t recognize it, being thankful never hurt anyone. ..
Leave what you’re “thank-full” for in the comments below! That’s all for now. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
(Oh! And be sure to check out the Katnidates in my previous post. Tell me what you think!)

May the odds EVER be in your favor!

Katniss Canidates! Katnidates?


It seems that things are going well for the HG movie, the script is finished, and certain actors are receiving scripts... Who are these actors? (Or should I say actresses?) Let's find out..:
Okay. NOW for the Katnisdates...
Actresses Lyndsy Fonesca

and Kaya Scodelario

have expressed interest in the film and received scripts in October 2010.
Also, Chloe Moretz,

Malese Jow,

and Jodelle Ferland 

are also interested in the role of Katniss.

Ok, now let's go take a look at them.

Lyndsy Fonesca-Age: Good, Looks: Good. Everything Else: Good

Kaya Scodelario-Age: Good, Looks: Okay. Everything Else: Fail. There are pics of her smoking, giving the finger, and other undesirable actions. Not that I believe that this will hamper her acting abilities. (Well, some of it might.) But I just don't like her, I don't want HER as the face of The Hunger Games.

Chloe Mortez-Age: Fail. She 13. And she looks like it too. Maybe she can audition as Prim? NOT Katniss. Looks: Another fail. Katniss needs to be dark, tall(ish), and slender. Everything Else: Well she's 13 and looks nothing like Katniss. Do I really need to continue?

Malese Jow: Age: Good, Looks: Okay, Everything Else: Ok, now Malese's voice. Have any of you heard it? It's awful. And the way she acts, almost like Miranda Cosgrove. She also doesn't seem to have done any real in depth acting. Mostly just Nickelodeon.Katniss needs to be played by someone with depth and intensity. I'm sorry but I don't think that Malese will be able to pull that off. That along with her voice? Fail.

And last but not least, Jodelle Ferland: Age: Perfect. (She's 16), Looks: Good but she looks a little young. Katniss was very mature for her age and Jodelle doesn't look "aged beyond her years", Everything Else: I'm just not sure that Jodelle has the intensity required for the part. I don't know, she might suprise us!

Yeah, so there you have it the official Katnidates that we have so far. 

If you guys have any suggestions of your own for any of the parts, or have any comments regarding our Katnisdates let me know at:
Keep you posted with more soon!

May the odds EVER be in your favor!

HGM News

Ok so here's the latest on the HG movie. (From here forward to be referred to as HGM. ;D)
As we all know, Lionsgate Entertainment has acquired worldwide distribution rights to The Hunger Games, which will be produced by Nina Jacobson's production company Color Force
Suzanne Collins has adapted the novel for film herself, and her script is being revised by screenwriter Billy Ray.     
It is anticipated to have a PG-13 rating.Alli Shearmur, Lionsgate President of Motion Picture Production, and Jim Miller, Lionsgate Senior Vice President of Motion Picture Production, will be in charge of overseeing the production of the movie. Here is a quote by Shearmur:      
"The Hunger Games is an incredible property and it is a thrill to bring it home to Lionsgate. This is exactly the kind of movie I came to Lionsgate to make: youthful, exciting, smart and edgy. We are looking forward to working with Nina and Suzanne to create a movie that satisfies audiences' hunger for high-quality entertainment."

Things are moving quite nicely and seem to be coming along well. I'm so excited for the movie! :D 
Next up: Katniss Wannabes!

Sorry for all the screaming to those of you whose eyes are bad. But you have to agree with me.
ONLY 55 DAYS until Mockingjay is released! Whoo hoo! I can't believe it! Remember when we had like 170 days to wait? And we were all like "UGHH, that's going to take forever!" Well, that "forever" is almost here! Hooray! Congrats to all of you who hung on and are now waiting with baited breath along with me! Thanks! Our EXTREMELY long wait is almost at an end!

May the odds EVER be in your favor!

Mockingjay and Spain

Ok, so I just heard a rumor...A horrible one. Concerning Mockingjay! What else? I was told by a friend who lives in Spain that the rain stays mainly in the plain. (Ok, only those of you who have seen "My Fair Lady" got that. Everyone else probably thinks I'm insane. ;D ) No, she lives in Spain and she was telling me that we are so lucky since we get Mockingjay in August. I was kinda like "Wha? Don't you get it in August too?" Nope. they don't they get it until....are you ready for this?
JANUARY 2011!!!
OMG! Is that depressing or what? JANUARY! Now I don't feel so bad about waiting until August...
That's horrible, I'm sorry! Shout out to EVERYONE who has to wait longer then I do for it! My heart goes out to you! I'll can email it to you guys I guess...(Is that legal?) Idk, but it's better then waiting! (As long as it's legal of course.) ;D
And for the rest of us who only have to wait another 95 days. (Yes, i did say ONLY.) They have to wait around 100 days more! AHHHH! Be strong! It will be out before you know it!

May the odds EVER be in your favor!

Peeta's Song. Gale's Song. Not in that order.

These are just some random songs that I was listening to that I believe captured Peeta and Gale's "plight" perfectly. Enjoy! And EMAIL ME any suggestions that you might have! ;D I'm open to all suggestions for ANY character!

Let's start with Gale:

I believe that this song captured Gale's internal battle within himself. He knows that he shouldn't love Katniss. She has to be in love with Peeta. He if tells her he loves her,(which he kinda did with the kiss) then it will only create controversial feelings, (which it did). But Gale decides that he just can't just sit and watch it all play out. (Pun slightly intended ;P) So he goes out and tries to in her. Does he succeed? I guess we'll find out in Mockingjay! 
(Gawsh, the wait is literally KILLING me! Only 106 days left though! Can I even cheer? That's still 106 DAYS LEFT! Well, it's better then 140 days, right?)

Now for Peeta's song:
Ok, so after much exhausting, back-breaking labor (lol!) I couldn't for the life of me, find a video for this song that had the lyrics! So, to this the "old-fashioned" way...Listen to the song and read along! ;)

Now for the lyrics:
Woah oh yeah (Woah oh yeah) Eh Eh Woah oh oh yeah
You're the finest girl I've ever seen And I wonder do you know this
That every guy you meet winds up catchin feelins for ya
You can have any of 'em You can take your pick
But you need to check with me Girl I promise I'm legit, yeah Ya we'll be going to the movies
In the theater holding hands I'll walk you home from school I'll walk you to your classes
Playing my 360 as you be my best friend But most of all baby doll you'll be my love love love
You should be pick me So tell me can you dig it
I'm everything you need girl So tell me can you dig it
I'll always be your number one number one fan (dig that)
And I should be your one and only man
You should pick me So tell me can you dig it
Think of how good that it could be girl So tell me can you dig it
I'll always be your number one number one fan(dig that)
And I should be your one and only man
You should pick me Yeah, you should pick me girl
You're my favorite part of the day
And every morning I look forward to me seeing your face I just need to see it some more
Baby I'm the kind of guy who can appreciate a girl as amazing as you
So you gotta be my baby girl Cause' we'll already be chillin' at the beach
I'll take you on a cruise, watch sun set while we eat
You can have anything you want cuz I'll be your best friend
But most of all baby doll you'll be my love love love
You should be pick me So tell me can you dig it I'm everything you need girl 
So tell me can you dig it
I'll always be your number one number one fan (dig that)
And I should be your one and only man
You should pick me So tell me can you dig it
Think of how good that it could be girl So tell me can you dig it
I'll always be your number one number one fan (dig that)
And I should be your one and only man You should pick me
You should pick the guy that makes you happy He could fly you stuff and
Pick the one that's got swagger Pick the one that makes you laugh
The one that always gots your back and Who would rather die Than make you sad
That's why you should pick me So tell me can you dig it I'm everything you need girl
So tell me can you dig it
I'll always be your number one number one fan (dig that)
And I should be your one and only man
You should pick me So tell me can you dig it Think of how that it could be girl 
So tell me can you dig it
I'll always be your number one number one fan (dig that) And i should be your one and only man
You should pick me You should pick me (the real crystal truth)
Woah oh yeah (Woah oh oh yeah) Eh Eh Woah oh oh yeah
That was a lot of lyrics. yes, it was. But as you read it that is SO Peeta! He wants Katniss to pick him. (Not Gale. ;P) And he will do ANYTHING to make her happy. "He'd rather die then make her sad..." Yupp, that's SO Peeta!! REentering the Games for her. That's DEFINITELY putting your life on the line! :D No really! It is! 
I had fun! I hope you liked this post! If you did, comment and send me any song suggestions/requests you can think of! I look forward to them!

May the odds EVER be in your favor!

Suzanne Collins-The 2010 Time 100

Wow! Suzanne Collins placed in Time's 2010 top 100! Congrats Suzanne! We're all cheering you on! ;)
Here is the article:

By Lizzie Skurnick:
Remaking society can take decades. But global rebellion is short work for sharpshooter Katniss Everdeen, who single-handedly foments a revolution in Suzanne Collins' blockbuster young-adult Hunger Games trilogy. America likes its champions reluctant, and Collins specializes in that surly breed: her heroine trounces dystopic despots while chewing her cheek in self-doubt.
Triumphant but not arrogant, prized but not vain, Katniss takes two whole books and assurances from two suitors to accept that the crowds love her.
You could get tired of bracing yourself for a hero's next unwitting triumph if Collins, 47, didn't wear the mantle of her own success so lightly. Like Katniss, she's a natural, lighting from thriller to bodice ripper to fantasy in the space of a few chapters, churning out a powerful, innovative oeuvre without making a big deal about it. Her literary dexterity lends itself to marketing speak — call it Children of Men meets The Clan of the Cave Bear — but Collins is not pastiche. She's a literary fusioneer, that rare writer who is all things to all readers. Today's would-be revolutionaries should be so lucky. 

Pretty awesome right? Congrats Suzanne! 
Thanks for reading!

Cato! Cato! Cato! Who?!

This is a random post about CATO! Who? remember that guy who killed Thresh in the 74th Hunger Games? Yeah, THAT'S the guy. Anyway, I received this helpful link from a friend on FB. THANKS JACKSON!!! :D 
Ok, this is how Google defines 'Cato'. Warning: It is really random but hilarious! :) Enjoy!
Definitions of Cato on the Web:
  • Cato is a town in Cayuga County, New York, USA. The population was 2,744 at the 2000 census. The name was assigned by the surveyors of the Military Tract, and is one of many towns and villages bearing classical place names.
  • Assisted take off is any system for helping aircraft into the air (as opposed to strictly under its own power). ...
  • Joseph Addison (1 May 1672 – 17 June 1719) was an English essayist, poet and politician. He was a man of letters, eldest son of Lancelot Addison ...
  • The Cato was a ship of 430 tons constructed at Stockton in England and registered in London to Reeve & Green. ...

  • (Burt Kwouk) Burt Kwouk (Chinese: éƒå¼¼; pinyin: GuÅ Bì) (born July 18, 1930) is an actor who was born in Manchester, England... 
Wasn't that RANDOM? Ahaha! I know right? What in the world?! But good to know! Umm, except that last part about Burt Kwouk? Who is THAT? And what did he have to do with Cato? I don't know! I missed the connection...How about you? ;)
Well, what did you think? Tell me in the comments! Thanks again Jackson! ;D

Hunger Games Names

Hello Everyone!
Sorry about this post it was SO MUCH BETTER with books references and everything but this darn computer wouldn't save it! >:\ 
But hey I did find some fanput (LOL! new word that i JUST made up! use it!;D) on Hunger Games names:
  i was thinking of the names and stuff. Do you know what thresh means? It means to shake out the grains of a plant.(not exactly "shake".) Agriculture, dist. 11! And gale? that's a kind of wind, and Gale has stormy grey eyes? I read this off a fan fic-> Peeta=Pita a type of bread,(duh.) Katniss, some wild potato plant<, and rue and primrose some types of flowers!!!! interesting, isn't it??(yupp.) i dont know about cato, but yeah!
Hmm...(My comments were in parentheses in case u couldn't! ;D) And more fanput(ahaha!):

Glimmer- like a  sparkle on a stone, you know, because district 1 makes things for the Capitol(true.)
Cato- was Roman politician and general who wrote the first history of Rome. As censor he attempted to restore simplicity to Roman life.(what does that have to do with Cato? u lost me...)
Clove- could be a flower, or a type of bulb, as in garlic clove, but my personal theory is that her name is clove, as in, to cleave.(i like this one! she cut Katniss' face remember?)
Foxface- she is a type of fish. I don't get this, because district 3 is fishing, not five. I think Kat means that she's sly as a fox, and looks like one, too.(that's what she said!)
Thresh-to separate the grain or seeds from a cereal plant (cereal? what country are you from again?) or the like by some mechanical means, (correct.) as by beating with a flail or by the action of a threshing machine. (agriculture, this is so cool)
Rue- is a small yellow or white flower
Katniss- is actually a plant, but i don't think it grows in america
Prim- primrose is a flower that comes in a variety of colors. Generally, it's pretty small, too
Cinna- like cinnamon? Or cinema?(whoa! not THAT'S stretching it! :D)
Everdeen- sounds suspicously like evergreen(yes it does...)
Gale- a wind, kinda matches him huh? Quick, and easy to make mad. (i don't know about THAT.)
hawthorne- a tree 
Do YOU have any ideas about HG names? Send them to me! :D I would LUV to hear what you think!

OMG! the wicked horridness IS true! :O
Ok, not saying that I hacked, but I have a friend who specializes in 'finding out the truth' in a unpolitical way: hacking. Remember, you didn't hear that from me.

As a fellow HG crazed fan when I mentioned the chance of the later release date of Mockingjay, he went crazy.After 'discovering' some information I am saddened to say that yes, it IS true.
The Mockingjay release date HAS been postponed! :'(
Scholastic is trying to keep it hushed for now. I don't know why. Trying to make it even MORE heartbreaking when  they announce it later?! UGH! I think I'm going to write them a strongly worded letter about this....Oh wait, I can't cauz no ones supposed to know!
I'll begin working on it now so I'll be ready for the announcement.
It seems that something is wrong with Mockingjay. Suzanne hit a wall maybe? IDK. *groan*I can't wait! >:\
Well, I'll keep you updated! :D
Btw, Happy Saint Patty's Day! (ugh, i wish this WAS a joke!)

May the odds EVER be in your favor!

P.S. I'm going to investigate further WHY scholastic is trying to keep this hushed! I wanna know why! >:|

Captiol Trailer!

Hooray! dani72187 has done it again!
Another AMAZING video! This is what he had to say about it:

Fan-made trailer for the second Suzanne Collins book, Catching fire. This trailer is more from the Capitols point of view so it doesn't focus on the rebellion aspect of the book. I was working on another video, but it wasn't working out to well so I switched over to this. I hope you enjoy.

Here it is! Enjoy and don't forget to comment and do your best to give dani72187 and 5 star rating and to check out his other videos! ;D 
Well, what did you think? Amazing, right? Let me know what you thought!

Blog Update 1#

Just a quick blog update! 
1. I am now on FACEBOOK! As you can see to my(and your) right. Click it and it'll take you to my profile. Just mention that you found me at this blog and I'll add you as a friend! I promise! ;) I tried to find as many of my followers as possible but alas! I only found two! Yeah, that's kinda sad. I think it will be easier to just have you guys send requests. Shout-out: Thank you Annie Dronet for using the same profile pic for Blogger and Facebook! That helped! I sent you a request! :D
2. I have entered another HG Toplist! It's located in the same area as the first. Don't worry! It's just as fast to vote as the first! ;) Please try to do both once a day. Also rate and review this site!
3. The post poll. We now have 3 candidates!
1.(previously 4#) Forest vs. Clock. A closer look and comparison of the 74th and 75th games arena.
2.(previously 3#)  Camouflage vs. wood savvy (Peeta's weapon vs. Katniss')
3.(previously 5#) The fashion and style of the Capitol and how the Hunger Games effected it. Dress like a Capitolist! (This could be VERY interesting!) :D
Written in order of votes.
Review the choices and enter your vote! Either through comments, cbox, or email! Would it be easier if I just made a poll? Would you vote then? Let me know! :)
4. I need your help! I would LOVE to feature your Hunger Games work! If you write, draw, make videos, sing, play piano, have theories, or anything else that is HG related, LET ME KNOW!
OMG. How could I have forgotten? A mega shout-out to whoever left that review on the HG Toplists! Thank you SO MUCH!

Uh oh Let This Horridness NOT BE TRUE!!!

Here I am minding my own business contentedly surfing the web for the latest HG news when I stumble across the most AWFUL, TERRIBLE, GHASTLY, HORRIFIC, DISTURBING news EVER!!!
It was just an innocent fan who had preordered Mockingjay before it was even titled, they had just received this message in their inbox. It reads as follows:
Unfortunately the release date for the Hunger Games Book 3 – the Mockingjay changed. The new delivery date is now October 4th.
OMG!! Please let this NOT BE TRUE if so it will like ruin my month!  PLEASE, OH PLEASE, OH PLEASE!!! Let this just be a case of horrid security on Amazon's part and that hopefully someone just managed to hack into their accounts and sent out this very NOT FUNNY joke or SPAM! (As twisted as that just sounded I hope it's true!) If not, that will TOTALLY jack up my countdown.....
More as soon as I find anything..........

May the odds EVER be in your favor! (Meaning that this is just a horrible joke.)

Let's see...Nina Jacobson will be the producer for the Hunger Game movie she is working in close contact along with Suzanne Collins! (Now THAT would be awesome!) *sigh* Here's a quick interview with her. Nina Jacobson not Suzanne Collins. darn!
 AHHHHHHH!! (Note: the ole dentist kind of open-your-mouth-and-say-ah kind NOT the AHH! there's-a-monster-under-my-bed! kind of ah! *clearing throat* As we were:
AHHH! A random pic of Lionsgate(i don't know why). Thank you! Lionsgate for being smart enough to make Hunger Games into a movie BEFORE Disney tried to snap it up and jack it up with their "disneyfying". I love you for it!
Disclaimer: I do NOT hate Disney. I do not dislike Disney or anyone associated with Disney because they're associated with Disney. I just HATE the idea of them "disneyfying" The Hunger Games movie. don't you?
Ok, now here's the interview:
[When]Asked about sci-fi action film The Hunger Games, Jacobson said, “The author (Suzanne Collins) is adapting it herself and she is writing away as we speak so I’m very excited about that.”
There’s no director or cast on board for that film yet. “We’ve had a lot of interest from directors,” she said. “Kind of an embarrassment of riches in terms of tons of directors who have called about it, but we didn’t want to attach anybody until we had a script and knew we were making the movie so that we didn’t end up having somebody get attached and then take something else and then not know what to do about staying with them or not. So we are waiting until we have our script before we go to directors, but there’s been some interest from great people.”
Lionsgate is targeting a 2011 release for the film. “[The studio] has been incredibly gonzo about having the movie. We’re getting the script in and our goal is we hope to attach a director late spring and make the movie in the fall for release anytime fall ‘11 or later. But that’s if everything goes perfectly on the script. If we take more time on the script, we’ll just go a little bit later. But our hope is to be making this movie in the fall,” she explained.
Hooray! Suzanne Collins is hard at work for us! Oh yeah! I can't wait! Fall of 2011! Oh YEAH!!!! OH YEAH!!! I can't wait! ALL this amazing Hunger Games stuff coming out! HG overload! HG overload! That's SO a good thing! More soon! Thanks for reading!

74th and 75th Hunger Games! not.

Hello Faithful Followers!
How has your day been? This post is being posted in recognition of this blog receiving 75 followers! OMG!!! I can't believe it! air! air! must get air! breathe! *chocking and gasping* Ok, here we go, WOW 75 followers! Hooray! 
Thanks you SO MUCH you guys! There's NO way I could have done it without you! You're the best! No really, you are. :)
Ok, as you know my plan was to relive the Hunger Games according to my number of followers. But I got to thinking...
If you want to read about the Hunger Games then just buy the book! I mean there’s about 200 pages dedicated to the 74th and at least 150 to the 75th one so what can I say that hasn’t been said? (Well, I can ALWAYS say something that hasn’t been said but suggest that you buy the books, if you haven’t already, which you should have.) :P
I mean it made sense to post about the 50th Hunger Games since there’s about 3(ok, maybe 5) pages dedicated to it in Catching Fire. (Not condemning, just sayin)
So instead of posting about what has already been written about I decided to let you choose from these options: Note: If you don’t like any of them then email what you would like to hear about! Disclaimer: Ok, I’m sorry if the one you chose doesn’t ultimately get picked but don’t let that stop you from voting. I will eventually post about ALL OF THEM and I will do so according to their order in my readers polls. So…VOTE!
Ok, now here are the choices:
1.    1.A reader’s poll (on something concerning the Hunger Games. I don’t know what so I’m hoping for PLENTY of suggestions from you!)
2.    2.A behind-the-scenes look at WHAT happened while Katniss was at the 74th(or 75th) Hunger Games. (Meaning: District 12, Gale, Haymitch, Effie, Cinna, and stylist team. I like this idea!) :)
3.    3.Camouflage vs. Wood Savvy (Peeta’s weapon vs. Katniss’)
4.   4.Forest vs. Clock (A closer look and comparison of the 74th and 75th Hunger Games arena.)
  5.The fashion and style of the Capitol and how the Hunger Games effected it. Dress like a capitolist! (This could be VERY interesting!) :)

Well, there are you choices! Choose carefully. Read the descriptions again. And again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again. If your answer hasn’t changed then email it to me. If you don’t like any of the options then email your ideas for a post. I’d LUV to hear from you! ;) Now, if you can't make up your mind about which ONE you want you can send me your top TWO choices (in order).
Only thing I ask it that you DO NOT put your vote in the comment section. I believe that this influences others and I want a peer-pressure-free voting. Also, if you have any suggestions or ideas for a post please email them to me as well. I don’t want others to be distracted if they like the choices. My email address can be found in the top right hand corner of this blog, in the Contact Me! section. 
Thanks for reading!
May the odds EVER be in your favor!
P.S. I will NOT POST until I receive an acceptable number of votes. So, put your choosing cap  on and vote! Remember, you're doing it for the team! :)

The Fiftieth Hunger Games-Haymitch's Games Part 2

Hello Everyone! Welcome to Part 2 of the Fiftieth Hunger Games! :) (I know, I know, it's been a while my bad. But It's here now that's what counts right?)
For my new followers who don't know what is going on, This post and it's other half(Part 1) was/is posted in honor of my blog obtaining 50 followers! So, I decided to relive the Fiftieth Hunger Games! (And so on with the 74 and 75 Hunger Games.) Ok, enough  explanation. but you might need to read Part 1 so we can all be on the same page, so to speak. :)
I decided to add some random music to this post in an effort to dilute the horrors we are about to relive. Tell me what you think but please EMAIL me any suggestions you might have! Enjoy!

Let's examine our favorite tributes shall we?(If your favorites our different then mine need help. professional help, and that would be me!) :)
OK, here we go:
Haymitch Abernathy and Maysilee Donner!
That about wraps it up. (If yours WERE different then mine then, we need to talk.)
Let's just get some basic information about them.

Maysilee Donner:
Was the aunt of Madge Undersee and tribute of the Second Quarter Quell.
Age: Unknown (My guess: Around 15 or 16. Maybe even 14.)
Occupation: Tribute
Home: District 12(!!) 
Weapon: Poisoned Darts (Not "poison" darts because she poisoned them herself, remember?)
Fate: Death
Cause: Skewered through the neck multiple times by pink (ironic color) birds with exceptionally long and sharp beaks.

Haymitch Abernathy:
Age: 16
Occupation: Tribute
Home: District 12(!!)
Weapon: Force Field
Fate: Winner

Ok, now that we have the formalities out of the way let's look at the playing field: 
  • Breathtaking(quite literally, so enjoy it while you got it)
  • Gorgeous(enough said...'til you keep reading)
  • Snowcapped mountains that later erupt in lava(what the? where's my life raft?)
  • A Beautiful Forest containing killer fluffy golden squirrels(and not killer in the good way, killer in the painful, permanent way)
  • Elegant yet deadly poisonous butterflies (who could have seen that coming?)
  • Luscious fruit that brings death(I've heard of the angel of death but this is just ridiculous!)note: you are what you eat! muahahahaha!
  • The crystal clear water in the pristine streams is flowing poison(OMG!)
  • The attractive flowers are disguised agents of tortured, agonizing deceasment :) (hold your breath everyone or you'll die!) 
  • Not to mention numerous poisons EVERYWHERE!!! (Ahhh!!!!!)
Oh, and let's not forget:

  • Striking pink neck-skewering birds(I am not even going to laugh at the "striking" irony!...Ok...I am! ahahaha! :) )

  • A secret(and deadly) force field that sends already released axes back into your head!(Now I can really say: Who saw that coming?) 
Whew! I probably would have been one of the 18 that dies the first day. Well not NOW that I've read and know what is poisonous but if not...well: deceasment!(new word! Try and use it sometime!)
I hope you enjoyed our reliving of the past. Tell me what you thought! Yeah, I'm glad I added the music. I know I needed it!(You know you did too!)

I would like to send a shout-out to EVERY SINGLE ONE of my followers!! Thanks you guys! Luv ya! :) And a very special shout-out to all of my commenting followers! (Not showing favoritism just appreciation. ;) )Love your comments! Keep them coming! :)

Don't forget to comment and EMAIL ME YOUR THEORIES! If they involve ANY aspect of the Hunger Games please EMAIL THEM TO ME!!!

Have Your Blog Featured HERE!!!

Ok, now for those of you who read my super long comment you know what I'm talking about. But for those of you who didn't Here's how it is:
If you would like to have your blog featured HERE at this blog you can do 1 of 2 things or you can do 2 of 2 things and knocked up to the top of the list(your choice). You can:
1. Create a post(not a blog, sometimes people get them mixed up) that is somehow related to the Hunger Games. You can then email me the link.(My email can be found when you view my profile.) I will check it out and get back to you as soon as humanly possible.
2. (This is MUCH easier! :) ) You send me some of your own Hunger Games theories. By email, not by comment. Also include a direct link to your blog. This works if your going for BOTH. The post might not SOLELY feature your blog (like 1. will) as their might be other people with AMAZING theories as well. But it's still excellent for your blog!
If you are going to send me someting don't send it to my old email. My new one is:
Thnx for the comments and a HUGE shout out to my new followers! Thnx you guys!

May the odds EVER be in you favor!
Note/P.S.- I will be more than happy to follow your blogs. Umm if you could send me your links and maybe sentence about what your blog is about that would be extremely helpful! Thnx!

MTOEBIYF!(ok, THAT was weird)

Catching Fire Trailer

I love trailers and guess what? I found you another one!
Now for those of you who are confused as to what in the world that title meant, lemme explain. If your like me you're thinking: "What in the world? The Hunger Games movie hasn't even come out yet and they already have the trailer for Catching Fire? What the...?" Now, if your not like me, then that sentence meant absolutely nothing to you. Too bad. :P
Hmm...Instead of ME just clarifying, how about YOU go ahead and watch it? Good idea, right? Right! Enjoy and don't forget to comment! (Hey Megan, this video is NOT from YouTube! Hooray!:) )

Pretty cool right? Ok, ok. It isn't the movie trailer or anything but you must admit it was a pretty sweet BOOK trailer! right? Complete genius! Let me know what you thought! 
And keep working on those theories! :) Let me know what you have at:

May the odds EVER be in your favor!

Mockingjay Countdown! Not Part 2 Part 2 :)

Hi! Happy Theory Month! what? Theory Month. The month where all my followers and readers send me ALL of their Hunger Games theories! I can't wait! :)
I just thought of something. If you have theories but maybe you don't want everyone to know that they're your theories go ahead and instead of leaving them in the comment section (which is fine) you can email them to me and specify that you want to be anonymous. That's perfectly fine. 
Note:I will want to use your theories to discuss and evaluate in future posts, but I won't mention that they're yours unless you want me to.
Thanks for your theories keep them coming!

May the odds ever be in your favor!

P.S. You can send them to me at:

The Fiftieth Hunger Games-Haymitch's Games Part 1

Hello everyone!

OMG! OMG! OMG! I have 50 followers! I never thought this day would come!
Thanks to ALL of you guys for supporting me! I appreciate it! :) Oh, don't let that stop you from following we still have the 74th AND the 75th games left! :)
Beware this post is a bit long but trust me, it's totally worth your time. No, really it is!

Now in honor of the number we will relive the Fiftieth Hunger Games! I thought it would be best to review it with everyone before jumping into speculation. If you have recently read Catching Fire and remember clearly everything that happened in the Fiftieth Hunger Games then you don't have to read this post and can skip on over to part two. Note: If you do you will miss all of my AMAZING commentary! just sayin' :) I suggest you read it so everything is crystal clear in our minds as we go on to part two. My comentary will be in bold so if you want to skip over feel free to do so. For those of you who are hanging on for the ride: 
Let the games begin!

"...He puts in the tape and I curl up next to him on the couch with my milk, which is really delicious with the honey and spices, yum! and lose myself in the Fiftieth Hunger Games. After the anthem, they show President Snow drawing the envelope for the second Quarter Quell. He looks younger but just as repellent. go figure. He reads from the square of paper in the same onerous voice he used for ours, informing Panem that in honor of the Quarter Quell, there will be twice the number of tributes. The editors smash cut right into the reapings, where name after name after name is called.
By the time we get to District 12, I'm completely overwhelmed by the sheer number of kids going to certain death. There's a woman, not Effie, calling the names in 12, but she still begins with “Ladies first!” She calls out the name of a girl who's from the Seam, you can tell by the look of her, and then I hear the name “Maysilee Donner.”
“Oh!” I say. “She was my mother's friend.” The camera finds her in the crowd, clinging to two other girls. All blond. All definitely merchants' kids.
“I think that's your mother hugging her,” says Peeta quietly. And he's right. As Maysilee Donner bravely disengages herself and heads for the stage, I catch a glimpse of my mother at my age, and no one has exaggerated her beauty. Holding her hand and weeping is another girl who looks just like Maysilee. But a lot like someone else I know, too.
“Madge,” I say.
“That's her mother. She and Maysilee were twins or something,” Peeta says. “My dad mentioned it once.” I think of Madge's mother. Mayor Undersee's wife. Who spends half her life in bed immobilized with terrible pain, shutting out the world. I think of how I never realized that she and my mother shared this connection. Of Madge showing up in that snowstorm to bring the painkiller for Gale. Go Madge! Of my mockingjay pin and how it means something completely different now that I know that its former owner was Madge's aunt, Maysilee Donner, a tribute who was murdered in the arena.
Haymitch's name is called last of all. It's more of a shock to see him than my mother. Young. Strong. Hard to admit, but he was something of a looker. Ok, I thought that was hilarious!  :) His hair dark and curly, those gray Seam eyes bright and, even then, dangerous.
“Oh. Peeta, you don't think he killed Maysilee, do you?” I burst out. I don't know why, but I can't stand the thought.
“With forty-eight players? I'd say the odds are against it,” says Peeta. But the odds haven't been very reliable of late, remember Peeta?
The chariot rides — in which the District 12 kids are dressed in awful coal miners' outfits blech!— and the interviews flash by. There's little time to focus on anyone. But since Haymitch is going to be the victor, we get to see one full exchange between him and Caesar Flickerman, who looks exactly as he always does in his twinkling midnight blue suit. Only his dark green hair, eyelids, and lips are different.
“So, Haymitch, what do you think of the Games having one hundred percent more competitors than usual?” asks Caesar.
Haymitch shrugs. “I don't see that it makes much difference. They'll still be one hundred percent as stupid as usual, so I figure my odds will be roughly the same.”
The audience bursts out laughing and Haymitch gives them a half smile.
Snarky. Arrogant. Indifferent.
“He didn't have to reach far for that, did he?” I say. Nope.
Now it's the morning the Games begin. We watch from the point of view of one of the tributes as she rises up through the tube from the Launch Room and into the arena. I can't help but give a slight gasp. Disbelief is reflected on the faces of the players. Even Haymitch's eyebrows lift in pleasure, really? is that even possible? although they almost immediately knit themselves back into a scowl.
It's the most breathtaking place imaginable. The golden Cornucopia sits in the middle of a green meadow with patches of gorgeous flowers. The sky is azure blue with puffy white clouds. Bright songbirds flutter overhead. where are the bunnies? By the way some of the tributes are sniffing, it must smell fantastic. where are the BUNNIES!!!An aerial shot shows that the meadow stretches for miles. Far in the distance, in one direction, there seems to be a woods, in the other, a snowcapped mountain.
The beauty disorients many of the players, because when the gong sounds, most of them seem like they're trying to wake from a dream. Not Haymitch, though. He's at the Cornucopia, armed with weapons and a backpack of choice supplies. He heads for the woods before most of the others have stepped off their plates. Go Haymitch!
Eighteen tributes are killed in the bloodbath that first day. Others begin to die off and it becomes clear that almost everything in this pretty place—the luscious fruit dangling from the bushes, the water in the crystalline streams, even the scent of the flowers when inhaled too directly —is deadly poisonous. Only the rainwater and the food provided at the Cornucopia are safe to consume. oh  no!
There's also a large, well-stocked Career pack of ten tributes scouring the mountain area for victims.
Haymitch has his own troubles over in the woods, where the fluffy golden squirrels turn out to be carnivorous and attack in packs, and the butterfly stings bring agony if not death. ok, now that is creepy. But he persists in moving forward, always keeping the distant mountain at his back.
Maysilee Donner turns out to be pretty resourceful herself, for a girl who leaves the Cornucopia with only a small backpack. Inside she finds a bowl, some dried beef, and a blowgun with two dozen darts. Making use of the readily available poisons, oh don't worry there's plenty to go around. she soon turns the blowgun into a deadly weapon by dipping the darts in lethal substances and directing them into her opponents' flesh.
Four days in, the picturesque mountain erupts in a volcano that wipes out another dozen players, including all but five of the Career pack. With the mountain spewing liquid fire, and the meadow offering no means of concealment, the remaining thirteen tributes — including Haymitch and
Maysilee — have no choice but to confine themselves to the woods.
Haymitch seems bent on continuing in the same direction, away from the now volcanic mountain, but a maze of tightly woven hedges forces him to circle back into the center of the woods, where he encounters three of the Careers and pulls his knife. They may be much bigger and stronger, but Haymitch has remarkable speed and has killed two when the third disarms him. That Career is about to slit his throat when a dart drops him to the ground. Go Maysilee!
Maysilee Donner steps out of the woods. “We'd live longer with two of us.”
“Guess you just proved that,” says Haymitch, rubbing his neck. “Allies?”
Maysilee nods. And there they are, instantly drawn into one of those pacts you'd be hard-pressed to break if you ever expect to go home and face your district.
Just like Peeta and me, they do better together. Get more rest, work out a system to salvage more rainwater, fight as a team, and share the food from the dead tributes' packs. But Haymitch is still determined to keep moving on.
“Why?” Maysilee keeps asking, and he ignores her until she refuses to move any farther without an answer.
“Because it has to end somewhere, right?” says Haymitch. “The arena can't go on forever.”
“What do you expect to find?” Maysilee asks.
“I don't know. But maybe there's something we can use,” he says.
When they finally do make it through that impossible hedge, using a blowtorch from one of the dead Careers' packs, they find themselves on flat, dry earth that leads to a cliff. Far below, you can see jagged rocks.
“That's all there is, Haymitch. Let's go back,” says Maysilee.
“No, I'm staying here,” he says.
“All right. There's only five of us left. May as well say good-bye now, anyway,”
she says. “I don't want it to come down to you and me.”
“Okay,” he agrees. That's all. He doesn't offer to shake her hand or even look at her. typical Haymitch. And she walks away.
Haymitch skirts along the edge of the cliff as if trying to figure something out. His foot dislodges a pebble and it falls into the abyss, apparently gone forever.
But a minute later, as he sits to rest, the pebble shoots back up beside him. Haymitch stares at it, puzzled, and then his face takes on a strange intensity. He lobs a rock the size of his fist over the cliff and waits. When it flies back out and right into his hand, he starts laughing.
That's when we hear Maysilee begin to scream. The alliance is over and she broke it off, so no one could blame him for ignoring her. umm...I would. But Haymitch runs for her, anyway. He arrives only in time to watch the last of a flock of candy pink birds, equipped with long, thin beaks, skewer her through the neck. lovely. He holds her hand while she dies, and all I can think of is Rue and how I was too late to save her, too.
Later that day, another tribute is killed in combat and a third gets eaten by a pack of those fluffy squirrels, Beware of all fluffy golden squirrels! who knows? they might eat you alive! muahahahahahaha! :) leaving Haymitch and a girl from District 1 to vie for the crown. She's bigger than he is and just as fast, and when the inevitable fight comes, it's bloody and awful and both have received what could well be fatal wounds, when Haymitch is finally disarmed. He staggers through the beautiful woods, holding his intestines in, OMG. while she stumbles after him, carrying the ax that should deliver his deathblow. Haymitch makes a beeline for his cliff and has just reached the edge when she throws the ax. He collapses on the ground and it flies into the abyss. Now weaponless as well, the girl just stands there, trying to staunch the flow of blood pouring from her empty eye socket.
She's thinking perhaps that she can outlast Haymitch, who's starting to convulse on the ground. But what she doesn't know, and what he does, is that the ax will return. And when it flies back over the ledge, it buries itself in her head. Just the kind of picture we need in our heads, right? The cannon sounds, her body is removed, and the trumpets blow to announce Haymitch's victory.
Peeta clicks off the tape and we sit there in silence for a while...."
