Update On SM's site


The Official Site of Stephenie Meyer has been updated and they have announced the release date of the "Decode" by Paramore Music Video and have also released another song from the Twilight soundtrack which can be heard on the site. Here is the post:
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

October 23, 2008

Here are two very cool news items dealing with the movie soundtrack:

First, we get to exclusively unveil Perry Farrell's song, "Go All The Way (into the Twilight)" for your listening enjoyment. As you know, this song will be part of the official Twilight soundtrack (in-stores November 4th).

In other awesome soundtrack news, we have just learned that the music video for Paramore's "Decode" will be premiering on November 3rd! You can watch it all day on MTV, MTV2, MTVu, and MTV.com. Make sure to check MTV.com leading up to the premiere to see exclusive snippets and a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the video.

Take a look at these exclusive stills from the video below!

If you haven't already done so, click here to pre-order the official Twilight the movie soundtrack!

And if you don't want to wait another twelve days for the soundtrack — don't forget about the soundtrack listening parties this Friday in Hot Topic stores (see October 16th posting below for details).


---------------------------------------------------------

I heard Bella's Lullaby!!!!

Well todays Friday the 24th and I got back from the mall about an hour ago. I finally got to listen to Bella's Lullaby along with the entire twilight soundtrack at Hot Topic! It was a bit hard to hear the songs very well through all of the commotion at the store, but i'm going to tell you now that all of the other Bella's lullabys that are on youtube claiming to be the official ones are not real! (At least as far as I can tell) For example there was a lot of speculation that "A River Flows in You" by Yiruma was going to be used, but you simply can't take one song by one artist that has already been named and just suddenly call it "Bella's Lullaby". You just can't do that. The real thing was composed by Carter Burwell.

After the listening party I had some time to kill so I walked into Borders and saw an entire section of shelving totally reserved for the Twilight books so I went to check it out and see if anything was new. Then I saw this little caption beneath the books that made me laugh: "Titles May Contain Mature Content, Adult Supervision is Advised"
Now I know that it was most likely pertaining to the entire Young Adult section but because it was only under the Twilight books it still made me laugh, how could the titles "Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn" be inappropriate for a child? What is Borders trying to say? I thought it was pretty funny. Here's my picture:

News over the past few days: Catch up


Sorry my posts have not been quite as frequent as when the blog was first getting started. I've been swamped with school work and my gymnastics coaches are starting to kick it up a notch. This post will catch up on most of the main news:

First up: Part of Twilight soundtrack online through youtube. Check it out here.

Second: On October 21st at 9 pm on spike tv the 2008 scream awards will be premiering along with world premiere footage of the Twilight film. I personally have never even heard of spike tv or the scream awards so I'm just going to rely on fellow twilighters to get that footage uploaded to the web for everyone else to view. If I find a link to the footage then I will definitely be posting it to the blog. No promises though.

Third: The company that has made the cullen crest jewelry for the cullen family in the Twilight movie will be releasing some of their merchandise onto amazon. The majority of these items are made for pre-order so some do not have official images yet.
Cullen crest merchandise:
Keyring
Edward's wrist cuff
Entire set ----> I really want this one!!!!!
Esme's bracelet
Rosalie's necklace
Alice's Choker

Well don't forget to tune in tomorrow for the Scream Awards! The footage will be presented by Cam Gigandet. Also Hot Topic has rolled out yet another Twilight shirt so be sure to check that out as well.

Well good night! I need to get some sleep if I expect to pass my Math midterm tomorrow.... ha wish me luck!

EW gets to listen to Twilight soundtrack early:


Entertainment weekly was privileged in receiving a copy of the Twilight soundtrack early and they submitted a complete review over the songs here. Here's what they had to say about Robert Pattinson's song "Never Think".
"I'm not going to pretend I didn't immediately skip to this track the second I dropped the preview CD into my colleague's Discman (yes, someone in our office still owns a Discman). After catching a quick bite of the beautiful Brit's folksy Whisky a Go Go performance on YouTube, I was eager to hear what the thesp would do on his first bona fide recording. He did not disappoint. The delicate guitar and laid-back vocals (compared by some to a young Jeff Buckley) would be the perfect background to Edward and Bella's post-fight reunion in the hospital. We may not be getting Pattinson's version of ''Bella's Lullaby,'' but this track leaves me wanting for nothing — well, maybe a personal serenade."

This will also be added to Twilight Ribbons under the Soundtrack page. Twilight soundtrack will be released November 4th.

Update SM site


Want to hear Bella's lullaby early???? Stop by your local Hot topic where they will be having a listening party and will unveil bella's lullaby!!!! This event will be held on Friday, October 24th at 7:00 pm at Hot topics everywhere! Here is the update on Stephenie Meyer's site:
-------------------------------------------------------------------

October 16, 2008

I just received the following announcement from Elizabeth:

"Exclusive Twilight Listening Parties at Hot Topic stores:

Be one of the first people to hear the entire Twilight soundtrack (in-stores November 4th). Hot Topic will be hosting exclusive listening parties at all of their locations on Friday, October 24th at 7pm. They'll be playing every song, including the previously unreleased songs from Paramore, Rob Pattinson, Perry Farrell and Mutemath, PLUS hear the unveiling of "Bella's Lullaby".

Hot Top is also offering 10% off your Twilight purchase at the event and you can preorder the soundtrack to get a special gift. If you aren't near a Hot Topic, you can still preorder the soundtrack by clicking here."

While I'm posting, I thought I would let you know that The Twilight Saga Box Set (which contains all four hardcover books) has been officially released as is currently shipping. Also, although Twilight: The Complete Illustrated Movie Companion was not supposed to be released until the end of the month, Amazon.com is apparently shipping the books already. I just thought you would like to know (you can click on the images below to order them if you haven't already).

--------------------------------------------------------------------
I wish I could get the movie companion early.... oh well ha. Well i'm going to be getting the twilight collector's edition tonight so I can't really complain ha. Oh and I'm definitely going to be going to the hot topic listening party =] that is.... as long as the soundtrack isn't already leaked onto the internet. So many things are getting ruined for the Twilight series, first midnight sun and then the final trailer. Also I think Breaking Dawn had some copies released early.... Ugh what has this world come to?! I hope that the soundtrack doesn't get leaked..no matter how much I want to hear Bella's Lullaby.

The Twilight hand campaign

This was from a while ago but I never got to share it so here it is. The Twilight hand campaign was started by deviantart.com user redlotusflower. This was going on while we were all still eagerly awaiting the release for Breaking Dawn. What you would do is write on your left hand, curving around the base of your thumb: .:The Twilight Hour:. and you would keep that on there until you had finished reading Breaking Dawn. I was a participant and I had to keep rewriting it on my hand over and over again because it kept getting rubbed off while I was at gymnastics practice haha. What everyone on Deviantart.com was doing was taking artistic shots of their hands and posting to Deviantart. Here is my hand:



The charms are part of a bracelet that I bought off ebay. It has all 4 book covers, the first twilight movie poster, a copper wolf charm, and a swarovski crystal (bella's bracelet!!). Also the clasp is an apple. Here is the bracelet:


If you are dying to have your own bella's bracelet but cannot afford one off of Twilightteez.com for 75 dollars, then go to ebay. Twilight fans have made unique Twilight bracelets that I'm sure you will be just as happy with, I know I sure am happy.

Length of the Twilight film released!


According to Mtv, the official length of the Twilight Movie being released on November 21st, 2008 will be 120 minutes long.  I don't think we'll have to worry about too many major key parts being cut out with a 2 hour film.  This information has made me very confident about the success of the movie.

  3. The Black Ghosts — Full Moon
  4. Linkin Park — Leave Out All The Rest

A couple more items: First, the final two parts of the four part series "The Making of The Resolution" have been embedded on our The Resolution page. Second, the official movie site (TwilightTheMovie.com) now has a list of international release dates for the movie. During the past several months I have received approximately 300,000 emails (yes, that is a slight exaggeration) asking about the release dates in other countries. So, I am happy to announce that if you click the link above and then click "Worldwide Release Dates" on the menu on the left, you will see all of the dates that have been announced at this point.

I hope everyone has a great day!

Update on Stephenie Meyer's site


The official site of Stephenie Meyer has once again been updated with news. This time it's a four part video that shows the making of the music video "The Resolution".
---------------------------------------------------

October 2, 2008

I definitely agree with the many comments I have read about the music video for "The Resolution" by Jack's Mannequin: both the video and the song are extremely good. We have been given some extras by the band, and I thought that everyone would enjoy seeing them. It is "The Making of The Resolution", and you can find the first two parts of the four part series here below the original video. The next two clips will be posted on our site in the next couple of days when they become available. I hope you enjoy them!

Update on SM's site


Seth tells us about Paramore's new song "Decode" Which will be featured on the Twilight soundtrack which will be release November 4th.

------------------------------------------------

October 1, 2008

We are excited to have the exclusive unveiling of Paramore's "Decode" — the official single from the Twilight soundtrack (in-stores November 4th—please note new on-sale date).

Hayley Williams from Paramore is a huge Twilight fan and recently talked about her love of the books and the song's title:

"Twilight is the first series of books I've ever read. I didn't get into the Harry Potter series even though I love the movies. Twilight really caught my attention and held it. I'm really excited to see the book adapted to film and excited that our band gets to be a part of the phenomenon. I chose the title "Decode" because the song is about the building tension, awkwardness, anger and confusion between Bella and Edward. Bella's is the only mind Edward can't read and I feel like that's a big part of the first book and one of the obstacles for them to overcome. It's one added tension that makes the story even better." -- Hayley Williams, Paramore

Although the names of the other songs/artists which will be included on the soundtrack will not be released for a few more days, it is already available for pre-order. Click here to pre-order the official Twilight the movie soundtrack! Stay tuned for more soundtrack news.
