Twi-spam, and it's a good one

First things first: Twilight Takes Over The Pop Charts; Twilight Sequels Moving Forward. So I guess Summit's assuming at this point that they're going to make the $150 million (or more) that Catherine Hardwicke estimated would be necessary to make sequels...?

(I keep having this horrible feeling that we're all going to be sitting here on November 24 meebling, "I... I didn't know you could make one billion dollars in a single weekend...")

(OMG IT'S A NEW MSPAINT_LOLZ!)

Hey, I haven't heard anything about the maul tour hitting Philadelphia yet, this is kind of weird... there were survivors, right?

A grey, sleepy day

First of all: Downloads of the third Half-Blood Prince trailer.

Two unconnected musical thoughts:

As soon as I became aware that Katy Perry (the singer I love to hate. GET OUT OF MY HEAD, "HOT N COLD." "N" IS NOT EVEN A REAL CONJUNCTION) did a cover of The Outfield's "Your Love" ("Use Your Love"), I had to hunt it down, because "Your Love" is one of my top umpteen songs ever. EVER. Shit, I would give any cover of "Your Love" at least one shot. Except that I started listening to it and I immediately got pissed off that the lyrics were changed for no appreciable reason. I mean, yes, there are a couple of lines near the beginning that you'd have to change, unless you, as a female performer Miss I Kissed a Girl, want to sing about how you like your girls a little bit older (honestly? If I were singing this in a karaoke or Rock Band situation, I'd do it, Josie and her vacation and everything). HOWEVER: let us compare (cover lyrics in bold): Collapse )

Sigh.

Secondly, there was an awesome song over the credits of the last episode of True Blood, and my understanding is that it's Dr. John's "I Don't Wanna Know" (actual spelling might vary, I'm not sure). Does anyone have it? Because I can't find it anywhere; I can't even figure out what album it might be on.

Anyway: linkspam! Collapse )

Burning the almost-midnight oil

Let's go ahead and post what I've got, shall we? I'd rather sleep in tomorrow.

The Moviefone Unscripted interview with Pattinson, Stewart and Meyer is live. And it's exactly as awkward as you might expect. I'm dying to know what part Kristen Stewart got that she can't talk about yet, though. (ETA: East of Eden?) Also: "Do your best sexy face." "... I don't want to saturate the market." And scroll down the side menu for three or four little thirty-second outtakes, blah.
