Meanwhile, my mother watched the Twilight DVD the other night--I've gotten through most of the extras--and asked if I could find her sheet music for "that song Edward Cullen plays on the piano." (She used to love playing the piano and wants to get back to it.) "I know it isn't really him playing it in the movie," she assured me for some reason. "No, it's him," I said (deciding to give her the benefit of the doubt that she didn't think that Actual Edward Cullen had somehow been magicked into existence for the purpose of filming a movie), "the actor's also a musician." "HE IS?" she cried. "I REALLY like him now!"
It's happened. I can't deny it anymore. She's a Twimom. I facepalmed.
Meanwhile, Jezebel has the "vampire kiss montage" (from the third disc of the Target set) with the full scenes of Carlisle biting Edward, Carlisle biting Esme, Bella imagining Edward as an old-school goth vampire, and that scene we were trying to find the other day--Edward's Midnight Sun fantasy of killing Bella that first day in class
Speaking of the DVD, EW has lovingly compiled 'Twilight' DVD: Best of Robert Pattinson's audio commentary because Twilight-related content ('Twilight': Inside Bella/Edward style!) is all that is keeping them afloat in this economy, seriously. Also: 'Twilight' sells more than 3 million DVDs in first day of sales; ‘Twilight’ Stars Come Out In Force Over Weekend To Tout DVD; New Moon Italy Filming Update; 'Cliff diving' scene being shot; New Moon Finds Its Wolf Pack ('Twilight 2': Diversity Casting Isn't Hard, AIRBENDER); New Moon Cast on the Paparazzi (“It’s great; we have been doing some pranks on them. I can’t really share any, but a lot of the pictures are planned”); Catherine Hardwicke Says There’s No ‘Twilight’ Anime…Well, Not Yet; Forget Kristen Stewart - Ryan Reynolds Eager to Work With ‘Dreamy’ Robert Pattinson; Kellan Lutz Knows What Makes Girls
And finally: I'm sure a "tribute novel" about Jacob called "Russet Noon" for sale is TOTALLY within the bounds of copyright law just because you say it is. Also, did you guys know that your characters are up for grabs if they're "well-known" and/or you neglected to have an artist draw them? Trufax, according to this writer.
