Soda Heads or Soda Jerks?

You decide. Recently I posted that the Soda Heads were talking behind my back. I titled it sort of tongue in cheek, but really, what else can you call it? They were discussing me without inviting me to the discussion. I was amused, so I blogged about it. I was flattered when they came and posted here after I posted about them. Then I went back and read the rest of the conversation which included comments about how I should be flattered that they were talking about my post and that their conversation should be viewed as complimentary because they hadn’t called me a dumbass. One of them commented on my blog that they rarely post outside of Soda Heads anymore because they tend to get flamed. Really? I can’t imagine why.

Note to self: Write an article about how the grammar and writing of Twilight isn’t nearly as bad as a lot of bloggers on the interwebs. Work in the difference between “good” and “pleasing” in art.

Recommended reading for the Soda Heads: Benjamin Wheeler’s blog. I’m sure you’d get a kick out of it.

Talking Behind My Back

LOL! I had no idea this was going on. I just happened to notice I had 8 hits from this same referrer. For those of you who don’t want to follow the link this is a thread written by an Anti-Twilight group at SodaHead regarding my On Vampire Lore post. This post by Christine was particularly vexing to me:

I repsect the opinoin. But the whole time I kept saying to myself, “But vampires aren’t real”
and notice how she didn’t touch the subject that REAL vampires simply DO NOT sparkle in the sunlight! I’m almost positive no other vampire story or movie ever has. And that truly is degrading to the religion.

Yeah, I tried to look at this with an open mind, but this really didn’t have an effect on me anyway.

I of course have questions. Why didn’t they post on my blog? I have allowed posts from outside WordPress. Does Christine believe vampires real or not? Religion? I wonder if Christine was talking about Twilight or my post when she said she tried to look on it with an open mind and that it had no effect. Either way it had enough of an effect to cause her to write on an anti-Twilight forum.

Oh the Jealousy!

Thursday my friend E-Fabulous and her BFF are road tripping to Port Angeles and Forks for Bella’s birthday celebration. I couldn’t be happier for them, or more jealous of them. I’m the one who gave them Twilight! I should be going! Whaaa! Oh well, I’ll be there in a way. I’ve sent them with a photo scavenger hunt. They are tasked to go forth and take pictures that will amuse and delight me. I can’t wait to post some! I’ve also asked for a postcard from Forks and a May The Forks Be With You t-shirt from Dazzled By Twilight. Have fun, girls!

Random Page Experiment

I’ve had a general malaise lately. There are a variety of reasons, none of which I’ll mention here. I’m working on resolving my issues, and it’s time to get back on the horse, or blog, rather. Thanks to all who have kept checking back. I appreciate you. Just so you have something new to read, and so everything isn’t dreadfully old if My Favorite Unicorn decides to stalk me, here my newest idea. We’ll see how it goes. From time to time I’m going to pick up one of the books, turn to a random page, and just blog about whatever comes to mind. Today’s page is 164 of Twilight. I opened the book up and this was the first thing I saw.

Edward sighed, and finally opened his eyes.

“Better?”

“Not really.”

I waited, but be didn’t speak again. He leaned his head back against the seat, staring at the ceiling of the car. His face was ridged.

I had to flip back a page or two. I knew exactly what was going on. Edward and Bella were in the Volvo, just after he had saved her from the gang in Port Angeles, but I couldn’t remember if the car was stopped yet. Yes, Edward had driven them out of town and pulled off the road. He had already told Bella to distract him, and she had already admitted her plans to maim Tyler Crowley. LOL, I love that. I really wish that had been in the movie. Sigh.

This scene is very telling. They have bearly scratched the surface of each other’s secrets and already they are both protecting each other in their own way. Edward is over-reacting and having a hard time controlling his rage. Bella is trusting and doing what she can to make everything seem okay for Edward’s sake. Edward reminds me of another Edward I know: Edward from Pretty Woman. Remember at the end of the movie when he asks Vivian what happens when the Prince rescues the Princess and she says she rescues him right back? That’s exactly what this reminds me of. Edward has rescued Bella twice at this point, and now we see more of how Bella is rescuing him right back. Of course we know a lot more of this side of things from the bit of Midnight Sun we’ve been blessed enough to read, but just taking Twilight into consideration we can see how Bella has always been a Shield, how she’s always protected those she loves.

Man I need to read these books again. This experiment could be dangerous.

New Moon on Monday

I still think MTV missed one heck of an opportunity there. Last year they had Twilight Tuesday. Who else but MTV could pull off ‘New Moon on Monday’? (Thanks Tonicfan!)

Almost Kiss?

Almost Kiss?

Does anyone know, do they really kiss? Will this be the next Best Kiss? Would an almost-kiss be considered?

Anyway, thanks to MTV for posting this video, story and photo (he’s only 17…he’s only 17…he’s only 17…). Viewers, be sure to stick around for the pop-up video-style commentary.

Ah, Duran Duran, how I’ve missed you. Let’s have some more New Moon-appropriate musical genius, shall we ? (thanks Gallard0o!)

Congrats, My Friends!

Congrats to my friends at LTT! I’m very excited for you!

And I also love you, the awesome Twilight (and maybe a few Hosts, too) fandom. I stalk your websites all the time—you guys are hilarious (I recently added LTT to my stalk list; thanks for the laugh lines, ladies). I’m looking forward to seeing some of you in November for a little movie release that I’m excited about. Too many months to go!

Love,
Steph

Steph, I’m so glad you found them. They really are hilarious, aren’t they?

Eclipse Casting Complete

Acting411 has now posted that casting for Eclipse is complete, and in fact rehearsals started weeks ago. I was wondering about that when August 1 rolled around. They are slated to begin filming in 2 days. Sorry, all you Bree hopefuls out there. Canadian hopefuls, at least, have a shot at being extras. Being in Vancouver would be a plus I would imagine. Check out my Auditions page for details.

Breaking Dawn Auditions

Have you been following Acting411? If you have you know some pretty interesting info by now.

Summit Entertainment has acquired the rights from Stephenie Meyer to film and distribute Breaking Dawn, the fourth novel in her series. Breaking Dawn is in the early pre-production stages. There will likely be quite a bit of tweaking to the novel due to the explicit sex and birth scenes to avoid an R rating.

Somebody didn’t catch that the explicit part was all in their heads! LOL!

Now for the really good stuff! Check out my Auditions page and scroll down to the 05Aug09 entry.

We shall see…

Dear Bryce Dallas Howard,

Congrats on winning the role of Victoria in Eclipse! I would have picked you if I couldn’t have Rachelle Lefevre, too. Not that you’re second best. I have seen many of your films and think you’re incredible. I look forward to seeing what you do with the role.

Break a leg!  ♥Rabbit

 

Dear Rachelle,

They did WHAT?!? It’s just not right. With the crazy shooting schedule Summit adopted in their rush to get to the box office you would think they would be a little more clear about non-negotiable dates. It sounds like they are in breach of contract to me. As they were clearly allowing you lot to film in the, what, two months you had off between shoots, they should have advised you of any blackout dates they were not willing to work around. I’m just sayin’. You should get your part back. There are petitions in the works as we speak. I hope lawyers and agents are as busy as the fans.

With hopes you are as tenacious as Victoria and Michelle “Bridezilla” Morgan, ♥Rabbit

 

Dear Summit,

Are you serious? Do you understand fandom at all? Do you understand that after that hot mess we call Twilight the fans will brook no more crap? Do you understand that the flip side of SQUEE is an angry mob with pitch forks and torches? Don’t for a minute think that you can assume breaking even on this movie. Oh, you’ll have a great opening weekend, but if we can spread the word and get Peter Facinelli a gajillion Twitter friends under a deadline we can certainly arrange seeing your little film once or twice in said weekend and then never again. We know someone will bootleg it and it will be available on the internet within days. We don’t have to pay you. I personally am against bootlegging, but you and I both know that the crappier the movie seems to be or the angrier the audience is, the likelier bootlegging will be. Add to that rabid fandom and you have a bootlegging nightmare on your hands. I beg of you, reconsider. Nobody wins without Rachelle playing Victoria no matter how wonderful Bryce Dallas Howard may be. We love our continuity and we love Rachelle. Besides, 10 days? Really? That just seems petty.

Seriously! ♥Rabbit
