Thirty Seconds To Mars: A Cinematic Call to Arms
AntiMusic.com recently posted a detailed feature on This Is War for their review section: The Screen Door. Writer Anthony Kuzminski greatly details the experience of listening to MARS.
Kuzminski writes: "The music from This Is War isn’t sinister or stark, it’s simply surreal. It awakens your inner sixteen-year-old where when all else fails and the tears run down your cheeks in slow motion, you turn the volume up and somehow faith is restored and all seems right with the world."

Weekly Picks From the Band

| || Life of Pi is a fantasy adventure novel by Yann Martel published in 2001.

He survives 227 days after a shipwreck, while stranded on a boat in the Pacific Ocean with a Bengal tiger. The novel won the 2003 Boeke Prize, a South African novel award. In 2004, it won the Asian/Pacific American Award for Literature in Best Adult Fiction for years 2001–2003. |
| Movie of the Week |
| || The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford (often shortened to The Assassination of Jesse James) is a 2007 American Western drama film. The film is directed by Andrew Dominik, with Brad Pitt portraying Jesse James and Casey Affleck as his killer, Robert Ford. Filming took place in rural Alberta and Winnipeg, Manitoba. Initially intended for a 2006 release, it was postponed and re-edited for a September 21, 2007 release. An adaptation of Ron Hansen's 1983 novel of the same name, the film dramatizes the relationship between James and Ford. |
| Album of the Week |
| || |
| James Blake is the debut studio album by London-based dubstep producer James Blake. It was released in both the United Kingdom and the United States on his own label, ATLAS, supported by A&M Records, on 7 February 2011. The release was supported with the release of its first single, "Limit to Your Love", on 28 November 2010. James Blake generally received acclaim from critics. The Observer's Kitty Empire said James Blake is "already one of the most critically anticipated albums of 2011". The album has also been described as "a sort of dubstep Nebraska or Sea Change, a record filled with self-revelation, introspection, and naked humanity." |

| || Guerrilla gardening is gardening on land without permission. It encompasses a very diverse range of people and motivations, from the enthusiastic gardener who spills over their legal boundaries to the highly political gardener who seeks to provoke change through direct action. It has implications for land rights, land reform. The land that is guerrilla gardened is usually abandoned or neglected by its legal owner and the guerrilla gardeners take it over ("squat") to grow plants. |
