    Oh how fast march has gone. Really looking forward to April.

    I especially loved this month’s backgrounds! My favorites are #3, #5, #7, #9, and #12. The space photos are absolutely beautiful!

      Same! totally my favourite month so far

  • mariaantoniavs March 30th, 2012 7:23 PM

    I find these pictures so inspiring!

    My favorite background picture from this month has to be that still from Harold and Maude. That movie really is about exploration, sexually and emotionally. It’s definitely in my top 25 list, and not just because of the soundtrack or ’70s fashion.

    I’m in Astronomy class at my high school (we’re lucky enough to have a planetarium) and we look at the APODs every day. The pictures are so beautiful, but the descriptions can be pretty corny sometimes!

    So cool My favorites #2 #5 #6 and all the APOD pics. #9 IS THE JAWS BEACH WITH ADDED UFOs.I knew I recognized those frantic kids from somewhere.That kind of made my day :)

    On a totally unrelated note, are you guys not doing book reviews anymore? They haven’t been up in two months, and they are one of my FAVORITE PARTS of Rookie.

    • Tavi March 30th, 2012 11:13 PM

      I’m glad you like them! We did people reviews instead this month, but books/zines/comics will be back next month.

    I needed an exploration month. Breath in that fresh air. Thanks for the beautiful work

    This month’s theme was just as great as the ones before! I loved the galaxy backgrounds :)


  • TheAwesomePossum March 31st, 2012 10:45 AM

    Ahhh I can’t believe that March is over! I loved this moth’s theme and can’t wait for the next one (I’m really curious to see what you guys do with Transformation.) My favorites are definitely 2 & 5 and the one after that and after that and after that … so basically I love all of them :-)

    any website that uses lauren bacall as their background has my heart immediately.

  • mayaautumn March 31st, 2012 6:03 PM

    jeez, this month has gone by quick…..
    there are so many amazing backgrounds that I don’t remember! March on rookie has been great:D

    I loved all the Harold and Maude backgrounds! <3

    i found a grimey old copy of H and M at this library sale, you know they are slowly ridding themselves of their VHS tapes. it’s super fun to watch on ANALOG though, so many weird subtleties come out.

  • marit April 1st, 2012 11:19 PM

    i would have like to see more pieces this month about exploring actual places (“girl about town” was one of my favorite articles!) But these backgrounds are all really cool and i can’t wait for Transformation!

  • moonflower April 2nd, 2012 4:28 AM

    Number 3 is a bit badass! Its totally something the teens in my town would do, I’m thinking of doing some ‘youth of today’ inspired photography, hmmm..


  • thirsty-pretzels April 2nd, 2012 4:13 PM

    A great movie that EVERYONE should watch, not really THAT MUCH exploration-themed is Everything Is Illuminated by Live Schrieber. Truly amazing. And, with Elijah Wood.

  • clady April 4th, 2012 4:47 AM
