PS - I am getting G-I-D-D-Y. Get these people OFF my TV and let the NEW MOON FESTIVITIES BEGIN!!!!
I forgot to mention I read in Page 6 this AM... They had to do a last minute seat change at the MTV Awards because different Hollywood stars are soooo not down with each other and can't stand to be near each other. Two they mentioned were Whitney Port and our own Bella, none other than Kristen Stewart. They said Whitney made some rank comments about the movie (she allegedly called it "really bad") and that the role of Bella was too "one-dimensional". Um, yikes.
Is anyone else having problems with newmoonmovie.org loading? Holy crap. I love this site so much and sometimes have an issue or two getting pages to load... most likely because it's tres popular and has a butt-load of Twilight-rific graphics. But tonight it is sick. And I'm trying to check out their live blog. WTF? I don't have an Apple Commodore for god's sake! I have a friggin iBook and am online with FiOS. HELP!
PS - I SO don't want to offend any of you who read my blog with any regularity. So if you're a fan of "The Hills", just move along and go get yourself a lovely snack from the fridge. But I am (suffering through) watching some episodes because they're holding me H-O-S-T-A-G-E and airing red carpet shizz during the show. Oh. My. God. It truly seems bad. I mean really bad. But then again, I watch the Real Housewives of New Jersey. So what the hell do I know?
"The Last Song" by Edward Bear
What's even funnier is it's about a dude who writes songs for his girlfriend. (OK alright, so I tie pretty much everything to Twilight. But c'mon. So do you.)

OK - I've changed this post 17 times. At first I was giddy. Then, I was a bit... disappointed? Now... I'm GIDDY AGAIN. I think I love it. I cannot WAIT to see this friggin movie!

I wonder if Peter F. is gearing up for his twitour where an unknown amount of Twilight fans will get their picture taken with him. Not that I pre-purchased a photo or anything. What kind of loser does that?

HELLO?! MCFLY?! How is it POSSIBLE that you don't understand what's happening here, Rob? They don't really want you. They think they want you... but they really want Edward Cullen. And you aren't Edward Cullen. You just play him on TV. And if you don't want them to notice you, it might be a good idea to trade in your black jeans, black shoes, black hoodie and black hat for a nice pair of faded jeans... and maybe a green or possibly blue t-shirt. Or if you really want to be like Edward Cullen, you could sport a pair of khakis and a white v-neck, which is REALLY how Edward Cullen would dress. Not in black from head to toe, which Stephenie Meyer clearly stated he NEVER WORE. But that's my beef with the Twilight producers/director; not you. So either get some color into your wardrobe... or suck it up, Silly!
This version has Bella and Jacob flipped. And it makes a hell of a lot more sense, don'tcha think?! (Except Bella's fingers. They're still really long and freakish.) Bella's choosing Edward over Jacob and Jacob's not happy. Exactly. Edward should probably be in the back but whatevs. This is still a better poster, even if it was Photoshopped. I still don't get the fists... but there was a lot of odd fist-balling going on in the books. So we'll overlook that, mmmkay?
At any rate - here is a link to those new Summit photos. (Although you've probably seen them by now!) The original video I posted was only talking about these photos - so you'll spend less time looking at these than watching that! It's a win/win situation! :)

From SaveMe620. Absolutely beautiful and should win an award of some sort.
From twlt4hcore. I LOVE how crazed Edward looks. And Jacob looks normal. And Bella looks depressed. All how they SHOULD look!
From Grodansnagel. I dig this. No Jacob - but Edward is all ghost-like and surreal and that makes me giddy with delight.

"Reed did promise us, however, that she won't be going to Italy with hopes that Weitz will see her on set and decide he might as well interject Rosalie into some additional scenes. "Absolutely not," she promised. "No. I feel so strongly about them sticking to the books.
"In fact, there was a scene in a very early draft of the 'New Moon' [script] that they had invented that was not in the books," Reed revealed. "And there was a discussion, and that scene is no longer in the script.
"I don't want to be in more of the movie just to be in more of the movie — and I think if they do that with any of the other actors that it is ridiculous, because I think that the only way that we can succeed is to stick to the books," she insisted. "If you are worried about how to please the fans, you will fail if you don't stick to the books."LOVE her! (said in my high-pitched voice). Forget what I said about the bad dye job they gave her in Twilight. It doesn't matter anymore. What matters is that she - and hopefully others in that cast - are working to make sure the films are as close to the books as possible. And that rocks.

My supply will soon run out. Again. How many times can I re-read the Twilight series? (OK, don't answer that.) Please, oh please, won't you go to your quiet place and start writing something Twilight-related again? Whether you finish Midnight Sun... or continue where Breaking Dawn left off... or start a kick-ass prequel of Carlisle's turning or Edward's life before being turned... it's all good. All of it. You have lifetimes of material to work with. So please, for the love of all that's holy, work with it.
You most sincere and humble (addict) servant,

Of all days for a Twilight blog owner's internet connection to go on the fritz, Robert Pattinson's birthday should NOT be one of them. (Cablevision sucks in ways internet providers should not suck.) So - sorry I'm a bit late in getting to the big webby party... but I wanted to throw a big HAPPY BIRTHDAY out there to our favorite vegan vampire. Now get out there and party (preferably in front of lots of camera phones) so I'll have something to blog about tomorrow!

Ditching our scripts is inexcusable and you couldn't be any more fired. No need to return to the set. We will be replacing you very soon with someone who actually gives a shit about our movies.
PS - That dress in Twilight made you look a hooch. Just sayin'.

You know - I couldn't figure out why it bothered me so much that they made Edward honk in the movie when he picked Bella up for school the first time. THIS is why! It just wasn't Edward. In Twilight, didn't Bella walk outside to drive to school, and Edward was just standing there in front of his car? It was typical of Edward to just... appear. That kindof MADE that scene in the book, actually. There was no call, no advanced warning. And he was making a huge statement in doing so. I felt like the honking in the movie was too boring and... human - for lack of a better word.
They better not be messing with New Moon too much. Having him honk is something totally small - but out of character. I fear what they could do to the next three films.

Remember how I said I'm too into the books to be phased by any of these actors? If that is true, then why am I kindof totally wanting to go to this?!
Hey Rowan girls... what do you think?!
I have to weigh in and say I couldn't care less about these comments. Let me tell you a little story about a girl named Carol who had zero desire of reading a silly little teen series named Twilight. When I first heard about it, I was all entrenched in Vampire Bill's shizz (from True Blood) and thought I was sooo above a teen novel. This is probably why I am so adamant about the fact that Stephenie Meyer didn't write Twilight to be a teen novel... but I digress. At any rate - he knew nothing about Twilight when he ripped on it and c'mon - it was being positioned as a teen series - thus a teen film. I totally ripped on the commercials when it was in theaters! And now look at me! Obsessed Twilight freak who discusses the semantics of Esme's glass wall addition with Shannon in the school parking lot! (And for the record, Mr. Slade's comments were pretty damn funny - to the point where I'll bet Stephenie Meyer and the cast would laugh about them). So survey says: whatevs!
And PS - as I've said before - if you haven't seen 30 Days of Night - run, don't walk, to your nearest Blockbuster and rent it. The suspense in that movie will knock your socks off. I cannot WAIT for this version of Eclipse. WORD.
From Twilightlexicon.com (we'll call this, simply, "the backtracking"):
From slashfilm.com (the original comments):
…and so yesterday we were trying to find a movie to see and we’d seen all the good ones, you know, and there was nothing really coming out this weekend that we really fancied at all and having directed a vampire film and really gone for something completely different to the kind of romantic, you know, repressed hormone teen vampire movie we really weren’t interested in seeing Twilight but a lot of people said lets go so I wrote -“Twilight drunk? No, not even drunk. Twilight on acid? No, not even on acid? Twilight at gun point? Just shoot me.”[That’s like] a poem in a way [...] at this point excites me even though people think I’m a really violent and unpleasant person I actually do have this romantic violent side to me. Maybe I should have seen Twilight.

I... I... Hmmm. This isn't going to be easy. But I'll try. There is something I like about the song. The intro... and the music in between verses. But the singing is wrong. NO OFFENSE to Justin Guarini because I dig him and he's from Philly so I've got all the love for him. It's not that I don't like his singing - just not the way he's singing on this song. It's like... too... Top Gun/Kenny Loggins or something. And it's too country. Whereas the music - in spots - is not. It's just not working - at least not for the New Moon soundtrack. And PS - "I can't touch you with my fingertips"? No. Uh uh. No No No.
Oh god - it gets worse. I did a search for Justin Guarini so I could double check - and came across his official website, where he isn't begging, but asking - strongly. And it's sad, because he's better than that. Way better.

First of all - sigh - Edward sings Bella to sleep. I don't think I appreciated that as much the first time around. It's so sweet. I'm always saying single guys should read the Twilight series so they'll know exactly what women want in a man. But come on. Writing lullabies and singing them them to you in the middle of the night? That - shit - don't - happen (said like Chris Rock).
So now I'm reading the part when Bella and the Cullens know someone was in Bella's room - and they're all being protective of her (gag) - and Edward is sitting on her couch while she's talking to Jacob on the phone. And he reaches his hand out for the phone. And he talks to Jacob. And they get along. It's really a turning point and again, I didn't appreciate it the first time around. Seeing as I sobbed like a baby when Edward called Jacob "my brother - my son" at the end of Breaking Dawn, you'd think I would have. I am such a pile of mush at the thought of Edward and Jacob being friends. Choke me in the shallow water before I get too deep, please.
*My thanks to stepeniemeyer.com for the graphic.
Look at the cover of their fourth album - "Stabbing Westward". That could be Bella suffering, in a parallel universe. (A very dark, parallel universe where she clearly let's Alice do her makeup, but a parallel universe none the same.)
And look at the red font and the symbol in it. Holy crap. So Twilight. I LOVE IT. (And I have to mention that "Save Yourself" is a little explicit - ie - he floats the "F" biscuit. Just thought you might want to know.)
