Happy New Zealand Music Month, you guys! All this month there’ll be posts on the New Zealand music that we like. Comment with some of your favourites if you want to!
There are a couple of Mint Chicks albums in the YA area (Crazy? Yes! Dumb? No! and Screens) and then some more in the adult area that you will have to pay $1 for, but it’s ok because they’re really good too (if I had to recommend just one it would be the EP Anti-Tiger). If you are unfamiliar with what the Mint Chicks sound like, then this will give you a good idea:
Energetic and punky.
Sadly they’ve moved on to other projects, but happily one of them is the excellent Unknown Mortal Orchestra (also in the adult colection, but so good)
Are you getting excited about the prospect of seeing The Hunger Games on the silver screen? We are. It premiered in Los Angeles last night, and now that everyone in the world is on Twitter and we all tweet about everything we do and see, it’s easy to find out what the people that were lucky enough to be there thought of it. The Huffington Post handily collected some tweets in a slideshow, here. By all (of these) accounts, Suzanne Collins will be very pleased with the adaptation.
Oh, and if you need to read the book first to compare them, do so here.
Do you want to share your views on the direction of Wellington? To get involved in the planning and development of Council services? Joining the Wellington City Youth Council can give you the chance to advise the Wellington City Council on issues that affect the city’s youth.

You can also connect with the Youth Council on Facebook and share your ideas and views that way as well!
… or something. The Facebook Data Team recently compiled a bunch of data from Facebook (what else would they do?) that eventually spat out Memology 2011. Points of interest include the top ten ranking topics of the year, the top ten status trends of the year and the fact that somehow Rebecca Black managed to stay off all of the lists. Pop over and have a look to see if anything you “like” or talked about charted this year. While you’re on Facebook, make sure you “like” us on our official Teen Blog page and maybe we’ll be a noteworthy meme in 2012.
Are you studying for your exams? Is it frustrating? Well then, why not destroy a website or two?

It’s snowing at the moment. This means we all need something interesting to watch while we are stuck inside drinking cocoa. Like this video about how language shapes our perception of colour from the BBC.
Regular service will resume when regular weather resumes. Good luck out there, Teen Blog-kateers!
