We're going to need a bigger post

So... yeah. I didn't get anything done today.

The A.V. Club at the Barack Obama election-night rally in Chicago.

Robert Pattinson interview on Z100 in NY (ONTD: HoboRadio); Another behind the scenes video of Twilight; RPattz wishes he could have been Bella.

'Twilight' Countdown: Catherine Hardwicke talks about the meadow and making Robert Pattinson 'dazzle.' Okay, people, "dazzling" is a completely separate phenomenon from "sparkling." Let's get these things right.

("I was just begging and begging, 'I’ve got to shoot a meadow. Something that looks like a meadow. Or people are going to stone me in the streets.' " You think Hardwicke's exaggerating and she's so incredibly not.)

Yet another media outlet is too lazy to think of its own interview questions. (To be fair: if I had to interview pretty much anyone, I'd run screaming to y'all for help. On the other hand: I AM NOT A TRAINED JOURNALIST.)
