One week and counting!

Hip Hip Hooray for Twilight: Eclipse!! I'm starting to get really freaking excited! The opening is one week from today! For some reason this time around I'm not quite as pumped up as I was for New Moon. I think it's because I have vowed not to watch any trailers/teasers/clips. It's already annoying that I know the whole story (from reading the books like a fiend), so I'm trying to reserve the cinematic interpretation for when I go see it. There have to be some surprises. This still shot got me excited:Pretty Flowers, pretty Edward. Can't freaking wait. Here's some headlines that shoved their way into my mind just today...
  • As of yesterday, over 600 crazed fans were already camped out in L.A. for the Eclipse premier! I don't think I'd go to these lengths. I frequently find myself pondering what is too far for Twilight fanhood. Sometimes I walk that line. But this is def too far. Why don't these people have jobs?
  • I love R-Patz/Edward, but he sure does pout alot about having to do press for the Twilight movies. Another interview has come out, in the NY Times no less, where he's whining and moaning about being sick of talking about Twilight. Just grin and bear it boyfriend, in 10 days everyone will have seen it and will be over it until the next one.
  • My sweet, sweet Edward has shacked up with that little poptart for the summer. Boo Hiss. Apparently, to enjoy their burgeoning relationship "in private," RPatz and KStew have holed up in a love nest in California for the Summer. Vom. I'm sure it's all sex, all day. Can't think too much about it. But what a fabulous house they found:
  • They've made Eclipse-inspired credit cards. This may be a little bit far, but I do wish I had one. The giggly thing about this story is that they're only making them into gift card form to get more kids to use them. I like that we're showing America's youth how to go retail crazy and get into debt at an early age. Preying on Twilight fanhood to get people to use MasterCards is pretty genius.
And of course, with all the press they're doing for the movie there have been an outpouring of great quotes from the cast. (If you haven't realized by now, I love quotes, they're sort of throwback journalism-ish to me...Also, taken out of context they can be even more high-larious) Here are some faves...
"It's like a horror film." Robert Pattinson on Twilight: Eclipse
That's just not true. Bella begs for sex the whole movie. That's a little horrifying, but does not a "horror film" make.
"We had a confrontational scene where I sort of push him around a little bit. I thought I'd really scare him and grab him and it would freak him out. So I went to grab his shoulder, but he's so pumped up. It was too big to actually get a grip on. That was kind of embarrassing. I did tease him unmercifully about having to dress up in a little grey spandex wolf suit all the time and try and be intimidating while Kristen was patting him on the head."Robert Pattinson on competing with Taylor Lautner in Twilight
I like that R-Patz has some insecurity about not being the pumped-up sex machine character. Such a boy thing to make fun of him for having to wear a wimpy costume. He's the stringy, pale Brit at the end of the day and he knows it. Hehe.
"One of the most challenging scenes was probably finally kissing Jacob for the first time. Bella has got such tunnel vision that Edward is the only thing for her. .... So when Taylor Lautner and I kissed, it felt like such a different dynamic. I was nervous as hell."Kristen Stewart
For all her faults, I'm glad she's at least into the character. And I guess I can related to this Edward "tunnel vision" she speaks of. Only quote I've read that doesn't make me want to slap her.
“I have had so many people say, ‘Why don’t you just play the part? Just like, go smile, talk about whatever they want you to talk about.’ It’s like, ‘I do, I really try to do that.’ I guess I should get a face transplant or something … But it’s gotten weird. I’ve like, relinquished control." Kristen Stewart
And, she's back. She's so arrogant she can't even smile and pose for the media. She claims to need a "face transplant" not to bite the hand that feeds her with her tarty attitude. The only person who is going to "relinquish control" is me, if I read any more of this crap.

"I like the glitter lube stuff." Robert Pattinson on the craziest Twilight merchandise he's seen

This is quotation gold. R-Patz + "Glitter Lube" + Millions of reporters recording his every word = Pure genius.
If you're as nuts for Twilight as I am, there are loads of sites that have a much more robust collection of all the news and coverage. These two are pretty good: http://www.eclipsemovie.org/ http://twilightguide.com/


  1. Hey Casey! There's apparently some kind of Twilight thing in Dallas this weekend that R Patz is rumored to be coming to. I heard about it on Kidd Kraddick this morning, so it might be on their website. Thought you might be interested :)

  2. I am really into this Twilight thing, I just wish Kristen would leave her stupid attitude at home on days when she does interviews.


Thanks for the comment! I"m sending you a big cuddly warm bearhug through the interwebs....
