Welcome everyone!!!

I have been wanting to write reviews for a long while now, but I have been putting it off as much as possible. I have finally let my boredom get so high to the point that I am finally going to do it.

First off an introduction to myself.

My name is Alicia. The Dark Lurtle is a nickname a few friends of mine came up with when I was a 9th grader in high school. Lurtle is a combination of a llama and a turtle. I bet you are wondering, but no, I did not get the idea from Napoleon Dynamite. I was a freshman for the 2003-2004 school year, and Napoleon Dynamite came out in August of 2004, so suck it! I digress. I really liked the nickname, and I wanted to use it in a productive manor. Either it be for a music video production company name, or a blog. (Besides this one, I have a regular blog at

I adore music! there is probably not a single moment I am awake that I am not listening to music. If I am in a environment where music is not played or is prohibited, you will see me bobbing in place because I am listening to a song in my head. I started watching music videos at rough age 7, and have been obsessed since.

I am not a genius when it comes to movies. I actually rarely watch them, but since I work at a movie theater, I might as well let you know my thoughts on movies that have recently come out.

I try to read as much as I can. I have been making up for lost time since I didn't read much towards the end of middle school and the greater part of high school. I was always such a book worm, and then I went into a stupor. I have since grown out of said stupor and have renewed my love for reading.

Since I love writing, I thought I might as well make a blog reviewing the things I love! I also grew to love giving my opinion on such topics when I reviewed Ben Lee's "Rebirth Of Venus" back in early 2009.

So comes the birth of this blog!

I hope that I am able to enlighten you all on what is great music, movie, and book wise.

Until my first review, Have an artistic day! :)
