Cosmopolis on DVD 1/1/13

Yay!!!! 2013 is starting off with a bang!!! Cosmopolis on DVD January 1st. I can't wait to get this DVD. It never came to theaters in my area.

Warning from Charlie

I got lucky last night. Charlie pulled me over and gave me a warning. I was driving like Cullen AGAIN!!

Last time I wasn't so lucky and got a ticket. This time Charlie said I seemed like a nice girl and to be careful. I apologized and said that I wasn't aware I was going so fast. I was just listening to a really good song. Honesty is best!!

I did not tell him I was rocking out to the soundtrack! LOL No wonder I was DRIVING LIKE A CULLEN!!!

My Journey through Twilight

My journey with the Twilight Saga started shortly after the Twilight movie came out on DVD. I had heard of the movie but did not know anything about it and did not know anyone who had seen it.

Me, being the movie buff that I am watched the trailer and just freaked out. I said, “WHY HAVEN’T I SEEN THIS ALREADY?” I went out, rented the movie and watched it right away. I was glued to the TV and completely fell in love with the characters.

While watching the movie I discovered that it was based on a book. I went out to the store the next day and bought the first book. I flew through it and then bought New Moon, Eclipse and Breaking Dawn. I was totally bitten and smitten with Edward Cullen and his relationship with Bella Swan.

After seeing the first movie I started following a couple fan sites online for more information and to be connected with and talk to others about the books and characters. 

I went to my first midnight premiere when New Moon came out in theaters. Even though New Moon is my least favorite of the books and movies (mainly because Edward leaves...) I became even more in love with these characters after seeing them on the big screen. There is just something about being in a theater with other Twilighters and watching the movie that is so electrifying and exciting.

In the time between the release of New Moon and Eclipse I decided to host my first Twilight Party. I started planning and coming up with ideas on how I could bring the Saga to life in my house.

I wanted to host a fun evening and invite those close to me who also shared my love for Twilight. On August 28, 2010 I hosted my party and what an EPIC night it was!

As I grew more and more attached to the Saga I joined more fan sites. It was through one of those fan sites that I saw a video that some other Twilighters had made. It’s called “Edward Cullen!! Your love is my drug”  and was made by the ladies of Our Twilight Corner.

I absolutely loved the video and was so impressed that they visited the actual movie filming locations. I started following their Facebook page and interacting with their head admin Lynn.   Meeting Lynn and the experiences that we have shared over these past two years are by far the most memorable that I have had throughout this entire journey.

The Twilight Saga and Stephenie Meyer have brought so many great people together through the story of these beloved characters. We have made lasting friendships that we will cherish always. We have created unforgettable memories that will always bring us joy. And I have done so much because of. 

If it wasn't for Twilight - 

I would not traveled across country for the first time to the Pacific Northwest and met the ladies from Our Twilight Corner especially Lynn who I can connect with on a level like no one else. She truly is the best TWI-BFF any Twilighter could ever ask for. 

Lynn and I in Forks, WA with Edward's Volvo!

I also would not have had the opportunity to experience some of the things that I have and that most Twilighters dream of. I have been to Forks, WA where the books are based on. I have been to numerous of the movie filming locations and visited the places and stood in the same spots and hung in the same trees where the magic is and was created.

I just want to say a huge thank you from the bottom of my heart to everyone who was involved in The Twilight Saga especially Stephenie Meyer.  This journey over the last five years has been amazing. I will truly cherish all of my memories forever.

Stephenie, without your dream none of this would have happened and it is for that dream that I am most grateful so thank you. <3

To all Twilighters, just because the movies are complete does not mean the magic is gone. It will live on FOREVER through us so always keep the sparkle alive and remember that Twilighters Dreams do come true so keep dreaming! You never know what will happen or where you will go.

Please feel free to share your journey or comments below.

Twi-Shopping Online

Message from Stephenie Meyer


Hi everyone. I hope you’re all coming back from a really fabulous Thanksgiving weekend, full of quality family time, too much delicious food, and restful tryptophan comas.
Two weeks ago, while doing press for Breaking Dawn 2, there were a lot of questions I wasn’t able to answer because I didn’t want to spoil the ending for anyone. I promised in a couple of interviews that I would post the answer to a specific question on my website once everyone had had a chance to see the movie. Now, if there is anyone reading this who hasn’t had a chance to see BD2 yet and really wants to remain unspoiled, please stop reading now.
***spoilers ahead***
The question, which I got frequently, was how I felt about having a big change inserted into the story during the final climax. My answer was that it didn’t feel like such a huge departure. For me, this moment is already in the book. However, we don’t get to see it in all its exciting and gory detail because we are seeing the world only through Bella’s eyes. A few of the reporters I talked to wanted to know where in the book this moment was hidden. The answer is page 738, fourth paragraph down:
“Aro stared into my eyes for a long, tense moment. I had no idea what he was searching for, or what he found, but after he had measured me for that moment, something in his face changed, a faint shift in the set of his mouth and eyes, and I knew that Aro had made his decision.”
In this short analysis, after Bella has revealed the depth of her power, Aro plays out in his head the probable outcome of a battle with the Cullens. Much like what we see in the movie, Aro foresees a more evenly matched fight than he had expected, the loss of too many of his key players, and—most unacceptable—the likelihood of his own death. Though odds are that the Volturi would have come out on top in the end, Aro wouldn’t have lived to see it and the unassailable nature of the Volturi’s authority would have been broken, possibly forever. It is this vision of the future—though imperfect guesswork on his part—that motivates his retreat.
Melissa Rosenberg and I have both mentioned the fateful dinner we had (back during the filming of Eclipse) where we hashed out a way to make the end of Breaking Dawn more cinematic. This was the idea we latched on to—how do we make this vision of Aro’s into something the viewer can experience? The answer was pretty simple once we looked at it that way—we already had a character who could show us visions. So the only real change to the book ending of Breaking Dawn is that Alice enters the scene earlier, and comes in contact with Aro.
(Are there a few little trespasses against the mythology in this vision? Yes, as some of you have pointed out. The consensus was that a minor deviation from what had been established was forgivable in the name of entertainment. I had a few very elaborate solutions, but they were too confusing and not nearly as cinematic as the final product. And obviously, the result was very entertaining.)
A few reporters asked me if I would have done anything different in the battle if I had written it; the answer is yes. Mainly, I would have killed more Cullens. I do think the Volturi would have won the day; as the talented players were taken out, in the end it would be brute strength that would determine the victor, and the Volturi have more soldiers and more experience. Of course, if we had offed Edward or something, it might have been too obvious that it was a vision sequence. In the end, when the vision was revealed, the reaction I heard in the two unsuspecting audiences I viewed it with was nothing but relief and enthusiasm. Kudos to Bill C for creating the perfect emotional response! He plays our heartstrings like a virtuoso.
It was really something to get to spend a little time with the fans at the BD2 events, and to watch the movie at the premiere with so many of them. It was the best experience I’ve ever had at a Twilight movie, and a perfect conclusion to my personal Twilight experience. I hope you also enjoyed the movie, and each other, for this last big bang. You, the readers and viewers, are the ones who have made this whole ten-year experience into something unbelievable and amazing, and I thank you so much for it. I hope I get to see some of you again in March (shameless The Host plug), because it makes me too sad to think that my relationship with my readers is ending, too.
Happy Holidays to you all, may the season be filled with good friends and good books!

Message from Bill Condon

Greetings to our global Twihard family,
On the flight now from Madrid to Berlin, I wanted to check in one last time, as you’re finally getting a look at what we’ve all been working on so intensely. It’s hard to believe that after our Berlin premiere tonight, my TWILIGHT journey will finally come to a close. It’s been almost three years since I first wrote to you. I’m very proud of what we’ve created together since then, and I hope that PART II fulfills your expectations for the grand finale to Stephenie’s sprawling saga. Fingers crossed that you’ve also managed to stay at least mostly spoiler-free, in order to enjoy the twists and parting gifts we have in store for you…
Thank you again for making me feel like a member of your fandom family online…for sleeping in The Line in San Diego in order to laugh with us in Hall H…for traveling great distances to join us in L.A. for last year’s Tent City and this year’s Fan Camp. Above all, thank you for trusting me with this universe you care so deeply about – we tried to match your intensity in our attention to every detail. That said, I don’t think I’ll ever live down the shame of being spied on by Twihard covens around the world on our very first night of shooting in Rio. Thanks to photos shot and instantly posted online of Bella and Edward on their honeymoon, we were called out in real time for missing a certain engagement ring… (Sorry — again!)
As with you all, what I’ll take with me from my time in Forks are so many great friendships – our massive cast of talented actors, and new creative partners such as Melissa Rosenberg, Guillermo Navarro and Phil Tippett. I hope to know them all for years and to work with them again soon, making movies yet to be dreamed up. At the L.A. premiere Monday night, Phil said we should make a “bloody, giant monster movie.” But is there room for a musical number?
See you at the theatre.

Music Video for All I Ever Needed

Here is the music video for Nikki Reed and Paul McDonald's song "All I've Ever Needed" from the Breaking Dawn Part 2 Soundtrack!! ENJOY! It's a gorgeous song!

Twilight Marathon 11/15/12

Yesterday my sister and I attended the Twilight Saga Marathon!!! That's right... MARATHON!!! We were at the theater from 10:45 am 11/15 until 12:12am 11/16!!! IT WAS EPIC!!!

When we got there they gave us really cool lanyards and wristbands that got us into the theater all day long. It was awesome!!! 

In between each movie there was a break so that way you could get up and stretch. We even went out to lunch during the break between Twilight and New Moon. 

In the morning there was a good size group of fans there but as the day went on more and more Twilighters showed up. Most showed up for Breaking Dawn Part 1 probably since it started in the evening and most were out of work.

It was in between the break from Part 1 and Part 2 that I changed from my "I beat Emmett Cullen in Arm Wrestling" t-shirt that I had worn all day into a NEWBORN!!! I totally got my sparkle on....from head to toe with glitter spray that is!!

The atmosphere in the theater was great. When the lights went down and the previews started everyone started clapping. For those of you who haven't seen the movie yet I will not give away any spoilers. All I will say is that I laughed, cried, was on the edge of my seat, nervous, happy, sad, pissed off, excited....bascially an emotional roller coaster!! LOL 

It was TRULY a fantastic film. Bill, Kristen, Rob, Taylor, Melissa, Stephenie and the ENTIRE CAST and crew did a phenomenal job. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for an absolute perfect and lovely ending to the saga. It was EPIC!!!

Just because the movies are done does not mean it is over. It will live on forever in our hearts and I will always cherish everything and everyone that has come into my life since the beginning.

Back of "I beat Emmett Cullen in Arm Wrestling" T-shirt


On a side note I loved the movie so much that I went to see it 2 more times on my day off today. Yay!!! That puts my total at 3 in less than 24 hours!! :)  WHOOP WHOOP!! EPIC!!

Oh and for those of you who are wondering if there was anything at the end of the credits. I have heard from someone who commented on TD FB that they asked a theater employee about something in the credits and they were told that it was only in select theaters.  I stayed 2 times and there was nothing at the end other than the Summit logo. Soooo if so I did not see it at mine. The cast surprise dance for Bill will be on the DVD I believe.
