Celebuzz has an article about the removal of Robert Pattinson’s shirtless scenes in the movie.

May we reflect for a minute, sadly, that there is no shirtlessness in this movie. (Of course, I guess it’s probably better that they save that stuff for New Moon anyways. :P)

But that’s not what caught my attention in this article.

That story about the little seven year old really caught my eye. That’s freaking creepy, and I consider myself to be incredibly unconservative. Spunk was completely correct in his reaction, especially considering the sexual symbolism that has been attached to vampirism for so long, in particular that of the neck-biting.

Creepy little seven year olds clearly not being educated by their parents. Excuse me parents, PLEASE don’t leave your children blind and naive, it is very important that they are not overly sheltered. The teenagers with the drinking problems, drug problems and/or unwanted pregnancy problems in the newspapers are always from sheltered childhoods. (I’m not generalising, the newspapers are. So get over it.)

Having said that, there’s educating and then there’s corrupting them… What the hell is a seven year old doing reading Twilight in the first place? It’s full of sexual tension and mutant babies eating their way out of uterus’ and all night long vampire sex that resulted in completely destroyed houses!

Ok, I sound like I’m contradicting myself, but what I mean by all this is educate your children, but be age-appropriate at the same time. (Of course, that’s a fine line and hey, I’m not a mother!) And if you’re going to give your small offspring Twilight, explain it to them, cos otherwise they’re gonna go out and do creepy things like the little seven year old in the article.

Man, kids today are so different, and I haven’t even been alive two decades yet!

p.s. I apologise if my rant seems like a contradictory mess, as you can see I’ve tried to make some sense of it, but it’s late and I’ll probably edit this tomorow so it flows better. Also, exams make my mind melt.

sweet dreams, my little vampire wannabes.

Ok, because I don’t really feel the need to update on all the various happenings in Twi-news, because there are other sites which are far better at it, I will pick out my best and faves and post them here as I find them.

First of all, Robert Pattinson will appear on Ellen Degeneres on 21st Nov in America. (isn’t that the date of the movie premiere there?) For all of us Australians stuck here, Ellen airs on Arena (Foxtel) every morning, and we get the show the day after. Because the 21st Nov is a Friday, we will get on Monday the 24th. If my calculations are correct, it will air at 11am EST, which is 9am in WA. Don’t forget to record it!

Secondly, I love Variety’s interview with Robert Pattinson.
It’s 15 mins long, which is lengthy, but it’s totally worth it. Honestly, you can’t not love the boy more after watching it. You will have to turn your speakers up, and I warn you: the interviewer is a bit annoying, but his answers are unscripted and indepth and you get answers to questions that are actually good. (I’m sick of hearing the same old questions with the same old answers over and over, so this was refreshing.)
I especially loved his discussion of the Twilight books. I’ve always felt he’s kind of avoided answering questions about his opinions of them and especially his love of New Moon, when Edward isn’t even present for a huge chunk of it. But this interview swept away all my little doubts about why he likes NM best.
Best of all, I love it when he says something along the lines of: “I don’t think it’s a particularly girly film – wait, is it girly? I haven’t seen it!”
If you don’t watch it, you suck. Blood.

The LA Times (blah American newspaper) has had their 30 day countdown to Twilight going for a while. The link there just takes you to all of them on one page. They have some fun facts, some fun captioning competitions (although the caption-Bella winners weren’t very funny…) and fan questions. I love fan questions.

Collider has some Spoiler-Filled Fun. I don’t know what Collider is, but the middle two videos (which are slow to load – and can only be loaded one at a time) are totally worth watching. The top one is the Comic Con interviews we’ve seen before and the last one is just the actors running up onto the stage at Comic Con. Of course, I have warned you: the middle two ARE jam packed with spoilers. I couldn’t resist. Totally worth it.

And finally, Collider (again) has a supermassive, never ending interview with Catherine Hardwicke. It’s difficult to read because her anwers are in bold and there’s alot of interruptions by ads and such, but it’s spoiler free and good for a Twi-fix. I love that she considered all the fan suggestions for cast members (even though I didn’t really like any of the fan suggestions I saw back in the pre-movie days), I thought that was really sweet. She cares about us. Also, the dvd extras she’s talking about are giving me serious Twi-cravings.

That’s Georgia’s Top Picks in the world of Twi-news for now! Check back later, when I promise there will be some funtime rambles and rants about my two favourite Breaking Dawn vampires: Vladimir and Stefan!

p.s. I couldn’t sleep on Sat night, despite behind exhausted. And knowing I couldn’t actually absorb any new information from the book I’m currently reading (A Fraction of the Whole – Steve Toltz, it’s amazing, read it. Main characters name is Jasper.), I picked up Twilight and flicked through to Chapter 13 – only to find somehow the pages of my book were scattered with glitter! Coincidence? I think not!

Ok, my internets been down, hence the lack of updates. I’ll be doing some proper blogging tomorow.

In the meantime, let us play a game. I like to call this game:

SIX DEGREES OF SEPARATION!!!

Yeah, that’s right, thanks to a lovely lovely gossip magazine, I can now link myself to anyone and everyone involved in Twilight. The cast AND Stephenie Meyer.

This. Blows. My. Mind.

Ok, you can read the relevant story at NineMSN.

Now don’t tell me that this is just gossip! Shush! I know it might just be gossip! But can I PLEASE just pretend it’s real? Just for a moment?

Let’s continue:

I’m friends with some people who went to school with/were in a theatre production with the boy in the above article. (Infact, his school is literally two blocks from my house.)

Now, he’s allegedly dating Emma Watson, aka Hermione.

She starred in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire with Robert Pattinson.

What’s that? 4 Degrees? Man, that’s just insane in the membrane. I cannot believe how bloody close that is. It also makes me THAT much closer to working out my 6 degrees between me and Kevin Bacon. (Because apparently everyone is 6 degrees from Kevin Bacon, now I just have to find a link between Watson and Bacon! And that’s a big deal.)

Right, so I could go on from there, with the degrees game, to Stephenie Meyer and JK Rowling and Alan Rickman and Gary Oldman and Emma Thompson and… that’s about it for celebrities from HP & Twilight that I actually would not mind running into… (and then of course, we could just keep going, listing off everyone who’s ever been in a movie or whatever with ANYONE from Harry Potter or Twilight and then it just gets complicated!)

So for now, all I care about, is that I am 4 degrees – FOUR! – from Robert Pattinson and JK Rowling and FIVE!!! from Stephenie Meyer.

And, thank you to Katie for working out how I was initially linked to the boy in the above article. (Because Jo and I spent AGES this morning looking for a common friend.)

Man I’m psyched!

Actual real and proper Twilight news tomorow! (When my internet officially kicks back in!)

love and vampire bites!
Georgia

p.s. do you think if I held that boy hostage, I could pursuade Emma to pay ransom in the form of Robert? lol. this is what happens when you have had too much sugar and a brand new Twilight poster for your bedroom wall!

Excuse me Twilighters everywhere. You, yes, you.

Hear the exciting news? Yeah, I heard it too. New Moon the movie! YAY!

If you want more details, check them out at Deadline Hollywood Daily and
Cinema Blend

Now, you might notice some of the comments people have made. Some very rude comments.

No, I’m not talking about the Twilight bashers who hate everything Twilight – I don’t care about those people, whatevs to them, they’re missing out.

The people who I have a bone to pick with are infact the Twilighters themselves. Team Edward girls, to be precise. (Just for the record, as I’ve previously mentioned, I am Team Edward.)

EXCUSE ME GIRLS! (and boys) What the hell? You call yourselves Twilight fans, yet you go bashing New Moon because omg, shock horror, Edward is missing for a fair chuck of the novel!

Furthermore, you go on and whinge about how you’re going to refuse to see the movie if they actually DARE focus on Bella and Jacob during that time Eddie is missing!

And THEN, to top it all off, you, yes you Team Edward-ers, who claim you know absolutely everything about Edward, say you will ONLY see the movie if they “flick across” to the “adventures” Edward and the Cullens were having “in Italy”, away from Bella.

Well it’s time for a reality check!

Have you read New Moon? I assume you have, if you are as in love with Edward as you claim to be. Because I’d like to make some things very clear.

First of all, there are many reasons why Edward leaves that turn into crucial events in the story:

1. Edward leaves Bella because he thinks she’ll be safer, but what we realise is that she isn’t.

2. We suffer with Bella whilst Edward is away, it makes us long for him even more.

3. Jacob is crucial to the storyline – in terms of the werewolves (Sam! Seth! Leah!), in terms of Renesmee. (Remember, the original sequel to Twilight was Forever Dawn, in which Jacob imprinted, despite having only been a minor character in the first book.)

4. Laurent and Victoria reappear (although Victoria is more illusive), which we also realise is crucial to the storyline.

5. Bella jumps off a cliff.

6. The Volturi would be difficult to introduce otherwise.

7. And finally, and most importantly, both Bella and the reader realise exactly WHAT is being sacrificed by Bella choosing to be with Edward, hopefully one day as a vampire.

Also, we must look at exactly what Edward was doing during the time he and Bella were apart. If you were a true Edward fan, you’d know what he was up to:

1. He tried tracking Victoria, and failed.

2. He then went and sat, in a corner (of sorts), still as a statue, and wallowed and moped. Because he missed his Bella, and he later told her that he was on the verge of coming back for her, before he found out she’d “died”.

3. He arrived, in Italy, only a few days before Bella. And he went to Italy to convince the Volturi to kill himself.

So, let me conclude thus far: Bella, in Forks, discovers werewolves and jumps off a cliff. Edward, in a corner somewhere, wallows and mopes and sits as still as a statue. He is not having “adventures in Italy”.

What’s going to make a more exciting movie? I think we all know the answer to that one.

Of course, I love looking at very pretty Robert Pattinson as much as the next girl. I’ve confessed that many a time. But really, he’d be sitting so still that it would be easier and cheaper to just download a picture of him and stare at it for about an hour. (Which is about the time I assume they’ll dedicate to Jacob time in the movie.)

And it’s just not THRILLING! Werewolves and cliff diving is far more thrilling.
Also, we must remember, the events in Italy take up a large chunk of the novel, and will no doubt end up being the focus of the movie, regardless. You’ll still get your Edward fill – not only in New Moon, but when Eclipse and Breaking Dawn are movie-fied also.

Also, just one more thing, I might be a very, very loyal Team Edward fan, but I want the story Stephenie Meyer wrote – I am loyal to her first and foremost – I do not want to watch Robert Pattinson sit in a corner JUST because he’s pretty. (I do that every day, he’s my laptop wallpaper!)
Remember – most of you hated him only a few short months ago. (I’m pretty sure I was the only girl on the planet who was pleased with his casting, initially.)

So if you’re really the Twilight fan you claim to be, you’d all stop bashing New Moon and Jacob – because you KNOW Bella picks Edward anyways, and because New Moon should be movie-fied as loyally to the book as is possible!

And you should all be thrilled that they’re turning the other books into movies – when initially, they were going to leave it at Twilight. I am really, honestly, absolutely psyched for both Twilight and New Moon, movie-fied!

My work here is done.

p.s. You may notice, under various New Moon movie-related articles, there are comments that read similarly to this one. That’s me. Infact, if you click on my name you SHOULD be redirected here or to my email. I don’t normally get stirred up over things like this, but man you guys really got my knickers in a knot!
