These are my (Twilight) confessions…

28 01 2010

I have a confession. I’ve converted. That’s right, I am now a member of Team Jake. Don’t get me wrong – of course I still love Edward too, but I’ve realized that I would have chosen Jacob. Before you burn me at the stake, let me explain how I got here.

The first few times I read Twilight through Eclipse (prior to the release of Breaking Dawn), I didn’t like Jacob at all. He annoyed the hell out of me. I thought he was a brat and whenever he was around, I was waiting for Edward to come back. I did not understand Jake’s character at all. Then, along came Breaking Dawn. I got to Part 2 around 2 am and fliiiiipped out. “What the hell are you thinking, Stephenie Meyer?! Why would we want to be inside the dog’s head?!” The combination of anxiety for Bella’s situation and the sleep deprivation was making me a little violent. But I soldiered on. And it turned out, Jake was kind of hilarious. In the midst of all the stress that was Breaking Dawn, Jake had this wonderfully snarky head. To be honest, his internal monologue sounds a lot like my own. I love snarkiness. Plus, I finally began to understand Jake a little bit. And to respect him for what he was willing to do to protect the girl he loved, despite the circumstances. No, I didn’t fall in love with him right then, but I stopped hating him.

Then I re-read the whole series with new eyes & I even started liking Jake a little, but mostly in a friendly sort of way. But after taking a little Twilight break & then coming back, I realized things had changed. Sure, Twilight was still basically the same, but in New Moon I didn’t miss Edward nearly so much. I liked reading about Jacob. He was funny and warm, grumpy at times, but hey, he’s human (kind of). He’s both gentle and rough, wild and soft, passionate and surly, immature and wise beyond his years. He’s just such a vivid and vivacious person. I actually think the darkness he gained from becoming a werewolf helped him. Before he was too naive and immature and innocent, but he gained a lot of complexity from his transformation. In Eclipse, he gets a lot of that happy-go-luckiness back (I’m thinking of his big wolfy grin & licking Bella across the face when they’re learning to fight the newborns) but he’s no longer a child.

Yes, Edward’s the perfect man. But perfection can be a little boring after a while (trust me, I’ve had boyfriends who always gave me my way & I eventually started picking fights just for a change of pace). Jake is always a little tempestuous & doesn’t give in to Bella’s every demand, and I like him the better for it. By the end of Eclipse & throughout Breaking Dawn, Edward’s just plain whipped and it’s kinda dull. I love Jake for being a little rougher, less suave & composed, more feisty and fun. He helps Bella live life on the (somewhat) wild side without forever fretting over her hurting herself. He’s not afraid of risks, but he’s still there to protect her when she needs him. Their relationship is more equal. Plus, he doesn’t have to be nearly so careful and controlled as Edward. Edward’s always got himself tightly under control, but Jake gets carried away with himself sometimes. He’s an adventure. He’s impulsive. He’s warm. And you wouldn’t have to change to be with him. Wouldn’t have to give up your family and friends and make him your whole world. Life would be balanced. You could grow old together and have a family without dying in the process of giving birth. There would be a lot less pain & a lot less sacrifice. You wouldn’t be forever thirsty. You wouldn’t have to watch everyone you know die while you continue to exist outside of the hustle & bustle of the course of human history. Mortal life isn’t as terrible as it’s made out to be.

I didn’t intend to fall in love with Jacob or defect to the other team, but after it happened and I gave it some thought, I realized that life with him is the one I would want. He’s who I’d choose. And that’s how I ended up on Team Jake.

Alright, let the stoning begin.

Hey guys!

Sorry I’ve been MIA so long. Life is crazy, and posting is more time consuming than I would have believed, so it’s going to be less frequent now, but I will still post from time to time! I also tweet pretty frequently, so follow me here.

Anyway, a few news updates.

Parodies Part 3

19 11 2009

LESS THAN 24 HOURS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

New Moon quote-of-the-day: “Before you, Bella, my life was like a moonless night. Very dark, but there were stars—points of light and reason… And then you shot across my sky like a meteor. Suddenly everything was on fire; there was brilliancy, there was beauty. When you were gone, when the meteor had fallen over the horizon, everything went black. Nothing had changed, but my eyes were blinded by the light. I couldn’t see the stars anymore. And there was no more reason for anything.” –Edward, Chapter 23

To tide you over till then, I bring you another installment of parodies from my new favorite site Take180.

But first, the hilarious Moviefone Unscripted interview with TLaut, RPattz, and Chris Weitz:

And, a hilarious UNCENSORED (Warning – tons of cursing) interview with the New Moon cast:

This is not a hater post – but let’s face it, we all know Rob’s hair is crazy, Taylor’s six-pack has taken on a life of its own, and Kristen stutters. It’s a fact of life in the Twilight world, so I think we can poke some good-natured fun at them.

Tom Cruise auditions for New Moon:

Taylor’s abs speak for themselves:

KStew discusses her special style of acting:

Rob talks about The Hair:

Rob talks about driving women wild:

And, finally, about letting his sisters dress him up as “Claudia” (which is a true story, btw):

Remember to practice your deep breathing exercises in these final hours! The day has come at last! Prepare to squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!

Squeeee,

The Twilight Effect

13 11 2009

6 days!!!

New Moon Quote-of-the-day: “Here’s to responsibility twice a week, and recklessness every day in between.” –Jake, Chapter 7

If you missed Stephenie Meyer on Oprah today, you can watch it here. On Monday (Nov 16), don’t miss Kristen Stewart on The Tonight Show, Taylor Lautner on The Jay Leno Show and Dakota Fanning on Ellen!

Hollywood believes that the masses prefer familiar plots and characters, so that they can get easy entertainment without putting too much effort into it. This theory does have some sense to it – this is the generation of instant gratification. God forbid we read a book when we can get a quick shot of entertainment in the form of a 30 minute TV show or two-hour movie. This same mindset appears to go into the production of the plethora of remakes and book adaptations that fill the silver screen year-round. One is hard pressed to find a movie today that isn’t a remake, sequel or book adaption – or sometimes a combination of all three – and it can be argued that this methodology has gotten out of control. The number of sequels in certain franchises has reached astronomical levels. Sam Raimi has signed on to direct the fourth and fifth installments of the Spiderman franchise. Saw 6 came out in October, Rambo 5 is in the works for 2011, with the possibility of a Rambo 6 to follow at a later date. DenOfGeek.com also speculates that, following the success of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, there will certainly be a fifth installment in the franchise. A fourth and fifth Shrek film have also been confirmed. Virtually every successful movie produced today is followed by at least one sequel. Even movies that were really intended to be a holiday one-hit-wonder and weren’t created with a sequel in mind, such as the Christmas event film Alvin and the Chipmunks, have fallen prey to Hollywood’s penchant for recycling. Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel hits theatres Christmas 2009.

Furthermore, it seems no film is off-limits, no matter how long it has been since the original was released. According to DenOfGeek.com, the 80’s cult classic Heathers has a sequel in the works, though no release date has been set. For series based on books or comic books that have a set number of installments and thus a finite potential for sequels, Hollywood has resorted to making prequels, such as The Hobbit, which precedes the enormously successful Lord of the Rings trilogy, and X-Men Origins: Wolverine, prequel to the successful X-Men franchise.

The decision to adapt The Hobbit for the silver screen points to another trend: Book adaptations have run rampant. According to ChasingTheFrog.com, 30 novels a year are adapted for the big screen. In recent years, the number has far exceeded the average. About.com reports that in 2006, 50 books were made into movies, and in 2007 that number rose to 70. Some of the better-known adaptations include the Harry Potter series, The Lord of the Rings trilogy, and, more recently, the Twilight Saga. These adaptations prove what the movie industry is only just beginning to realize – fantasy novels, an underappreciated genre in written form, make excellent movie fodder. The appeal of book adaptations is understandable – books already have preexisting fan bases that are certain to turn out at theatres to support the movie version of their favorite book. Plus, many action or fantasy novels are geared toward special effects and sequels, which are two key ingredients in the Hollywood formula for success.

However, it is often the case that movie incarnations of popular novels are inferior to the print version, which serves to outrage loyal fans rather than win them over, but incensed fans are not enough to stop the Hollywood’s production machine if they think they can make a buck or two. In what EW.com has dubbed the “Twilight Effect,” a slew of similar book-to-film adaptations are on deck for upcoming years, such as James Patterson’s teen-oriented Maximum Ride series, because the Twilight film, based on author Stephenie Meyer’s bestselling novel of the same name, has done for the fantasy genre what Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey did for science fiction. The teen hit also proved to Hollywood what, deep down, they’ve known for years: If a movie can draw in a teenage audience, the demographic with the most free time and disposable income, it’s sure to be a smash hit.

However, Hollywood has recently started to dip into genres and books less appealing to the teenage crowd, as well as less well-suited to franchises, action thrillers, and special effects. The film incarnation of Jodi Picoult’s popular novel My Sister’s Keeper premiered last June. While the film featured a blockbuster cast of Cameron Diaz, Abigail Breslin, Alec Baldwin and Joan Cusack, the story of a young girl battling cancer and her sister’s fight for the control of her own body is not typical summer blockbuster fare. Hollywood has even gone so far as to turn a children’s bedtime story book into a film set for released in October: Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak. This is not the first time this particular book has been adapted for the big screen; another version was released in 1973. Nor is this a record for remakes. Many films have been remade multiple times, most frequently films who have their origin in classic novels. For example, IMDb.com shows that Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte has been adapted as a movie four times, not counting multiple made-for-TV versions, and is set for yet another remake in 2010. The same is true of Charlotte Bronte’s Jane Eyre, which is set for an eighth remake in 2011.

Films based on classic books are not the only genre in danger of being remade these days. Hollywood has now turned its eye towards cult classic films, such as Footloose, Fame, Dirty Dancing and even The Rocky Horror Picture Show, which all beg the question: Is nothing sacred? One would be hard-pressed to find a film that doesn’t have roots in a novel or previous film, or sometimes both. It was once said that there is nothing new under the sun, and in today’s Hollywood it rings truer than ever. In fact, the only original cinematic attractions in modern Hollywood are the movies full of gross or ridiculous humor, such as You Don’t Mess With the Zohan, and the movies that mock other films, such as the Scary Movie franchise. However, even these movies draw upon the films they parody.

In short, Hollywood today isn’t producing anything that’s going to last. Hollywood’s Golden Age seems to be over – the age of stars like Humphrey Bogart and Audrey Hepburn, whose films are still favorites with modern audiences. But this phenomenon isn’t isolated to just the film industry. The modern age also isn’t producing lasting literature comparable to that of Charles Dickens and Jane Austen, or revolutionary music like the Beatles, who still have die-hard fans, even though two of the band members are dead. Perhaps Hollywood is not the only problem; perhaps modern audiences are demanding less by repeatedly shelling out 10 bucks to see the same film they’ve seen a hundred times before, packaged under a different title. Nevertheless, Hollywood cannot be completely absolved. Film studios, producers and directors have found a formula that works and don’t want to risk their financial security in these uncertain times by generating radical or revolutionary films that have the potential of shocking or alienating audiences. But it’s been proven a hundred times before – the only way to make progress is to push boundaries and move into new territories that have never been charted before. Audiences will love it or hate it, but hey – at least they tried it.

What do you guys think of the “Twilight Effect”? Is it getting out of hand? I’m really starting to wish they’d leave my favorite series alone! They’re turning all my favorite books into sure-to-be-substandard adaptations. The Uglies series by Scott Westerfeld and the A Great and Terrible Beauty series by Libba Bray (both of which I highly recommend) are set to be adapted in 2011 and 2010, respectively. How do you guys feel about this recycling-gone-amok?  Discuss in the comments! Plus, don’t forget to follow on Twitter!

Twilight Ponderings

9 11 2009

10 Days!!!

New Moon Quote of the Day: “Forbidden to remember, terrified to forget; it was a hard line to walk.” –Bella, Chapter 4

REMINDER: Submit your New Moon movie questions to the Official Twilight Saga website between noon today (Monday, November 9) and noon tomorrow (Tuesday, November 10) for Stephenie to answer!!!

Here is a continuation of the post-Breaking Dawn break down my friend and I had for months afterwards. After awhile, we moved away from specifically Breaking Dawn-related topics into the series as a whole, now that it’s complete.

1. It’s ironic that Bella stops visiting Charlie in Forks the year before the Cullens come to Forks. I suppose it would have been weird for Edward to meet Bella when she was like 10…but the wolves imprint on newborns (Jake) and 2 yr olds (Quil)…not fair.
 
2. Steph said the reason Edward skipped Bio the day they were blood-typing was so he wouldn’t be tempted….but wouldn’t it also be because it would be kinda conspicuous that the needle wouldn’t break his skin? That reason makes more sense to me. But what do I know? 
 
3. The whole mess could have been avoided if Edward had just let her become a vamp when James bit her. Of course then there would only be one book….cause even Breaking Dawn wouldn’t be necessary…cause there would be no Nessie…I guess I see why she didn’t go that route…though at the time she wasn’t planning on writing any of the other books. I REALLY would like to see Forever Dawn (For those who don’t know, on her site Steph says that Forever Dawn was the sequel to Twilight that she wrote when she was still just writing for herself). Because if Jake never came on the scene…then what on earth was the plot? She said all the major points of Forever Dawn were in Breaking Dawn…but I just don’t see how she could have had it without Jake. He’s so major in BD. How frustrating. 
 
4. I wonder…for those few days between when she got cut on her 18th bday and when Edward leaves and he was refusing to stay with her at night…was he sitting in her room watching her like he did at first in Twilight? I bet he was. Such an Edward thing to do. Trying to make it easier on her when he left, but making it worse for himself. Sick, masochistic lion. 
 
5. Putting her mortality to a vote is such a Bella thing to do. But what I don’t get is why the Cullens would agree to it. Cause her reason for putting it in their hands was a little fabricated. And who would wanna risk pissing Edward off? I don’t see why they humored her…cause you know Edward came home and let them have it….and poor Emmett lost his tv in the ordeal lol. Plus, it’s not like what any of them said but Carlisle mattered…sooo why not just go to him? Tho he told her at the beginning of New Moon that that was between Edward and Bella lol….but I’m pretty sure that things were different by the end. Obviously Edward wasn’t going to live without her…so they’d just have to go through that again when Bella finally died. Though he’d have a harder time getting away, since Alice would be keeping an eye out the older Bella got. Of course, making him live would be extremely selfish of them…cause he’d be sooo upset. Obviously. I’m not really sure why im going in to all of this…
 
6. Alice and bella never finished the diamond convo (in Eclipse). I guess we’re just supposed to assume that the heart was a diamond? I really wish they’d finished that convo…cause ya know it woulda been funny…especially the following convo between Bella and Edward…
Bella: “this is a DIAMOND?!”
Edward:”You said handmedowns were acceptable.”
Bella: “Are you INSANE?!”
Edward: “You’re overreacting”
….I know she’d never punch Edward in the face…but I bet she would’ve considered it for a split second…and then remembered what punching Jake had done to her hand, and Jake wasn’t even a rock
Edward and Jake made Bella a violent person. Rememeber in Twilight when she figured out Edward let Tyler ask her to the dance on purpose, she felt like hitting something and was surprised because she was normally non-violent. They’re bad influences. Look what became of her – trying to seduce a vampire. Yes, that’s totally unrelated, but I had to fit a quote in there lol.

Thoughts that came up during Steph’s Post-BD interviews

(Stephenie said that if she were ever to continue in the Twilight world, she had other characters she would probably focus on and we decided that the best (and obvious) choices would be Nessie and Jake, or possibly Leah)
 
1. Ok so while the Nessie/Jake thing is cute if you don’t think too hard about it…the facts are that he was in love with her MOM…like, wanted to do her mom…*shudders*…yeah I try not to think about it because they do have potential as a story. But I really love Leah too.
 
(On Stephenie’s Breaking Dawn playlist, she assigns the song My Never by Blue October to Jake during the birth scene.)
2. So listening to My Never and thinking about Jake is making me really dislike Bella. Not in a permanent way…I just really wish she hadn’t screwed him over like she did, now that I like him…it’s funny, I like him like she does. I’m not in love with Jake like Edward, but I’d like Jake to be my best friend lol. I can see the resemblence between her and Cathy from Wuthering Heights now. (Stephenie loosely based all the books on another classic – for Eclipse it was Wuthering Heights – which I feel the same way about as Edward does: I’m not a fan.) I’m glad he got Nessie, because then he got to be happy too 🙂
 
3.  He’s (Jake) perfect for her (Nessie) definitely. That’s the point of imprinting. He’ll be everything she needs. But you know, Edward’s not perfect…he makes mistakes…like leaving in New Moon. Biggest mistake of his long life. BUT what redeems him and makes him ultimately perfect is that he has the best of intentions. Completely and utterly selfless. Which is what matters in the end. You know, I find it funny that he thinks he’s gonna have to grovel to get Bella to take him back…he’s so clueless…though him begging might have been interesting 😉
 
4. I also want to know every song on Edward’s ipod. Or at least the songs he put on Nessie’s, cause those were his faves.
 
5. I STILL cannot believe how much I love Jake now. I’m starting to understand Bella’s dilemma. Before BD I thought she was a complete and utter moron for even considering it. But now…I think I’d work out a way to share. Like Jake said in BD, he could get Bella (or me lol) for the weekends. LOL. So wrong, so right. Edward should get the most time. Cause he’s the sexiest.
 
6. Explanation: When endlessly debating the possibilities for BD in he weeks leading up to August 2nd, obviously the topic of Bella as a vampire came up. We thought it might be creepy, because we hadn’t been in a vampire’s head dealing with the bloodlust and everything before.
 
YEAH I KNOW IT WAS CRAZY WE WERE SO AFRAID THAT BELLA AS A VAMP WOULD BE CREEPY BUT IT TOTALLY WASN’T!! It was actually my favorite part. I think her self-control probably helped a lot though. We should’ve known Steph would find a way around the creepiness.
 
7. Finally, Steph’s explanation (on her site) of how the vampire-human hybrid was possible makes me laugh heartily. She’s trying SO hard to be delicate but it’s SO obvious. *rolls eyes*

“The first seed (no pun intended) was planted when I did Bella’s computer research in chapter seven of Twilight. Bella reads about several real vampire legends—the Danag, Estrie, Upier, etc. In the novel, I only mentioned a few of the many legends I read through. One that I didn’t mention at this point was the entry on the Incubus. The unique feature about that legend was that the incubus could father children. Hmmm, I said, and I filed that kernel of an idea away for later. When I decided to write the first sequel to Twilight (Forever Dawn), I knew it was going to revolve around a hybrid baby from the outset.

When my editor and I decided to go back and really develop Bella’s last year of high school, I did so with the knowledge that it was all going to end up with the events in Breaking Dawn. Everything I wrote was pointed in that direction.

I was always very careful when I answered the “Can vampires have babies?” question, because I didn’t want to say anything incorrect, but I also didn’t want to make the future super-obvious. I focused my answers on the female half of the equation—female vampires cannot have children because their bodies no longer change in any aspect. There is no changing cycle to begin with, and their bodies couldn’t expand to fit a growing child, either. I purposely evaded answering the question, “Can a male vampire get a human female pregnant?” to preserve a tiny bit of surprise in the last book. There were many statements on this subject purported to have come from me, but I never made those comments because, obviously, I knew where this was going.

Now, on to the “how is this possible?” question. First of all, of course it’s not possible. None of this story is possible. It’s a fantasy story about creatures that don’t actually exist. Within the context of the fantasy, however, this is how it works:

Vampires are physically similar enough to their human origins to pass as humans under some circumstances (like cloudy days). There are many basic differences. They appear to have skin like ours, albeit very fair skin. The skin serves the same general purpose of protecting the body. However, the cells that make up their skin are not pliant like our cells, they are hard and reflective like crystal. A fluid similar to the venom in their mouths works as a lubricant between the cells, which makes movement possible (note: this fluid is very flammable). A fluid similar to the same venom lubricates their eyes so that their eyes can move easily in their sockets. (However, they don’t produce tears because tears exist to protect the eye from damage, and nothing is going to be able to scratch a vampire’s eye.) The lubricant-venom in the eyes and skin is not able to infect a human the way saliva-venom can. Similarly, throughout the vampire’s body are many versions of venom-based fluids that retain a marked resemblance to the fluid that was replaced, and function in much the same way and toward the same purpose. Though there is no venom replacement that works precisely like blood, many of the functions of blood are carried on in some form. Also, the nervous system runs in a slightly different but heightened way. Some involuntary reactions, like breathing, continue (in that specific example because vampires use the scents in the air much more than we do, rather than out of a need for oxygen). Other involuntary reactions, like blinking, don’t exist because there is no purpose for them. The normal reactions of arousal are still present in vampires, made possible by venom-related fluids that cause tissues to react similarly as they do to an influx of blood. Like with vampire skin—which looks similar to human skin and has the same basic function—fluids closely related to seminal fluids still exist in male vampires, which carry genetic information and are capable of bonding with a human ovum. This was not a known fact in the vampire world (outside of Joham’s personal experimenting) before Nessie, because it’s nearly impossible for a vampire to be that near a human and not kill her.

I didn’t get into all of these details at my signings because it’s a long, complicated mouthful. Also, it’s hard to be clearly heard with all the screaming. Mostly, though, I waited to do this in writing because I have an immature, Homer Simpson-like tendency to giggle when I say the words “seminal fluids” in public.”

This is why we love Twilight – there is SO much to discuss. We can never know enough about these characters we love so much. How about you guys – what questions do you still have? What aspects would you like to know more about? Discuss in the comments! And, as always, follow on Twitter!

Parodies Part 2

8 11 2009

11 Days!!!

New Moon Quote-of-the-Day: “Romeo wouldn’t change his mind. That’s why people still remembered his name, always twined with hers: Romeo and Juliet. That’s why it was a good story. “Juliet gets dumped and ends up with Paris” would have never been a hit.” –Bella, Chapter 16

In  honor of Taylor Swift’s hilarious SNL performance last night, I thought it would be a good day for some parodies. If you missed it, here is her musical monologue in which she mentions “that werewolf from Twilight” 😉 And for the parody starters, here’s Taylor Swift’s Twilight parody from last night’s show:

Firelight

I think she would have made a good Bella, don’t you? Of course, then Bella would have ended up with Jake 😉

Unwanted, Undead or Alive

“On a vampire I ride” = priceless. (Shoutout to Jessica!)
