The Girl w/ the Dragon Tattoo in theaters Dec 21st. I thought the book Rocked, but it has been a while since I read it. I may have to do a re-read before the movie comes out. Or maybe not, so I don't compare the 2 too much.
Kristen, on shooting the wedding scenes: “It’s a trip to watch the wedding scenes especially. It was so volatile and emotional - I was being such a crazy person.”
Rob, on ripping pillows during the anticipated sex scene: ”I wanted to have it as a line so much. [In an American/Edward accent] I bit through all the pillows. Every. Single. One. And then he’d start crying. By the way, that’s what he should be ashamed of in the morning. All those beautiful pillows! Egyptian cotton! [Laughs] I ruined this bed!”
I'm about 3/4 into 'Breaking Dawn' again. I thought a re-read would be good. Refresh on a bit more detail, but not close enough to movie time in November that I compare the movie to the book too much. Kristen Stewart is definitely going to have to bring her 'A Game' for Bella these last 2 movies, with Bella's transformation. If that doesn't come across believable, then I fear the movie will be lacking for sure. I have faith in K.S! :) I have no worries with Robert! He needs to just keep Rockn 'EDWARD'! SO EXCITED!!
Check out Kristen's Smok'n W Magazine September Cover shot!
Robert Pattinson thoughts on the 'birth scene'.. "The birth scene is so different from everything else in the movie. For a fantasy series it goes quite far. It's hardcore, it's graphic. There's no other way to do it. It was fun," he told the audience at Comic Con on Thursday"
Kristin Stewart: âSheâs literally choking on blood sheâs been drinking, literally out of her mind. It was always in my head that sheâs been able to fight harder than anyone because of that little bit in her, literally," she laughed ."And at that part I got to play with having venom run through your veins and start to feel the hell that that is, and thatâs after a moment of sheer exuberance of looking at your baby for the first time.â
Stephanie Meyer" "I'd love to have the birth scene be every bit as awful -- I know it freaked people out, but for those of us who have been through childbirth a couple times, it is a scary, terrifying experience," she told MTV News last year. "This is just taking that to an exponential power, and I love going there."
411 on the Wedding & more 'Breaking Dawn Part 1"
KS:"It had a kind of feel of everyone kind of excited to see how it's all going to go down," she continued. "I don't want to say it felt like a real wedding, but it definitely felt like a ceremony. It definitely felt ceremonial and celebratory."
It was a Hot weekend, but a good one! Thank goodness
for my complex pool.Â A must have when temps are
over 90 in May!Â Over the weekend, I ran into this at Sams Club...
*Grab it if you don't have it and want to know
what was in Stephanie's heads..more about the characters,
their story and history..Â A little something to tied us over
until November 18th!! Breaking Dawn Part 1.. Can't wait!
I was craving 'Lemon Cake' over the weekend, so I made myÂ 1st one.
It actually turned out yummy. My Honey Ted isn't a huge
fruit tasting cake fan, but he admitted it was YUMMY!!
I added to the box recipe to put a bit of flair
to it! It'sÂ Easy & YummyÂ to make! :)
Cake 1 Box of Lemon Cake Mix
1 Box of Lemon Pudding
3 large/jumbo eggs
1/3 cup of margarine (melted- 5 1/3 TBs) 1 cup of FatÂ Free Milk
1/3 cup of Italian Sweet Cream Coffee Creamer
1/4 tsp Lemon Extract (could also use real lemon juice) 1 tsp of Vanilla Extract
Frosting/Topping 1 container ofÂ (Classic) Vanilla frosting
1 cup of white chocolate chips (I had to get chocolate in there .. LOL) 1 square ofÂ Bakers White chocolate
1 TB spoon of the Italian Sweet Creamer
1 TB spoon of Fat Free milk
Cake: In a large mixing bowlÂ mix together cake mix, pudding mix, 3 eggs,
1/3 cup of melted margarine (5 1/3 TBs),1 cup of milk & 1/3 cupÂ of the
Italian Sweet Cream with the 1/4 tsp of Lemon Extract in it and
1 tsp of Vanilla. MIX for about 1 minute..then beat for 2 minutes!
I used a bundt pan that has the side come off- I sprayed it w/ Butter flavored Crisco/Pam and then coated the sides with sugar (Ted suggested Lemon Zest mixed with the sugar next time).I also lined theÂ bottom of the pan with parchament paper (cut out the circle in the middle to fit the pan).Â Â Put in a pre-heated oven 350! Take about 35-40 minutes to bake. Golden brown on top and clean tooth pick comes out.Â Shake some more sugar over the top of the cake before it
cools! Â Let it cool on a rack if you have one. within 1o minutes take the
side of the bundt pan off for it to cool completely.
MeltÂ the white chocolate square and 1/2 cup of the white chocolate chips
in the microwave starting with 30 seconds..then a few here and there each time
adding a splash of milk and creamer to make it smooth.Â Let it cool a bit
then add it to the Vanilla frosting.Â If the frosting seems like it's more melted, put
in the refrigerator for about 10 minutes just to set back up, not get cold.
Once cake it cooled, take out of the pan and on a serving plate or where you are
Keeping it.Â Frost and finish up with the rest of the white chocolate chips scattered on top!
It's pretty Easy & Yummy!Â Good Cake to go with the Texas Heat. Serve it
Â up with a bit of Lite Cool Whip or you favorite cool whip topping!Â :)
SeptemberÂ 13 is Bella Swan's Birthday & to CELEBRATE 'Eclipse' has been re-released in Theaters TODAY!!
Wanna help 'Bella & Friends' add to their $670 Million plus
they've raked in so far when it came out June 30th..
*Kristen Stewart: (on her "Twilight" character, Bella)" People like her, oddly enough,
and she has no idea why. Then she falls in love with a vampire.
What I like about it is that the characters are really unique. "
*Looks likeÂ Â Double Feature Â 'Breaking Dawn' will be
PG -13... Do you do the Birth scene & others more graphic
like the Book?? Or tone it down a bit for the Movie???
Director Bill Condon would love to be more 'Graphic', but
it seems the consensus is 'TONE IT DOWN A BIT'... so it can be
PG-13!!!1st part of 'BD' is out next November..
But jumping a head of myself... The Countdown
to Eclipse is on... not long 'til June 30th!!!
... In the meantime you could always snatch up
a 'Bella Charm Bracelet' to get ya in the 'E-Spirit'...
I did.. actually enjoyed it.. a very quick read...too bad
her character doesn't haveÂ a Happy Ending. Many wondering..
Why the Novella about Bree since she's such a minor character
in the book... she seems to make a bigger impression in the movie
'ECLIPSE'... [kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/U3V-ysvoD5I" width="425" height="350" wmode="transparent" /] ...Â Might want to grab the Novella...just so you're on your game
w/ Bree..Riley & the New Vamps of Victoria's CrewÂ during the movie! :)Â Â
Here's another 'Newbie-Eclipse Clip' tide ya over 'til the 30th.. [kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/HFEA5vtxykE" width="425" height="350" wmode="transparent" /]
Stephenie Meyer has a Novella
coming out...Â (GIRLIE SCREAM) *According to Stephenie:
June 7th until July 5th, it will also be available online at www.breetanner.com.
"Stephenie Meyer isn't done with the world of sparkly vampires just yet -- and this June, she'll release a "Twilight" spin-off book centering on a character from "Eclipse."
According to the Hachette Book Group, the 192 page novella, "The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner," will be told from the P.O.V. of Bree, a newborn vamp in the third book.
The novella will go for $13.99, with one dollar from each sale going to the American Red Cross International Response Fund.
"Bree" will hit bookshelves June 5."
*A future casting change is coming for theÂ movie series.. *Not Edward or Bella.. PHEW!!! Vampire Victoria, one of Bella's Biggest Problems, may look
a bit different in 'Eclipse'...Rachel Leferve played 'Victoria'
in 'Twilight' & will also in 'New Moon', but due to scheduling
conflicts of another movie she's in... Victoria will be played
by Bryce Dallas Howard... ..
Yep..Â Ron Howard's Daughter
Wonder what 'Opie' would think? [kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/oSTdHClwwSg" width="425" height="350" wmode="transparent" /]

She's hooked on the 'Twilight' series... Grabbed the 1st book
and read it in less than 2 days, went out & got the others...
Sounds familiar to me?? 'Twilight' I guess would be 'My'
Harry Potter (never got into that)...Can't wait to see "NEW MOON"
in November...Here's the newest Scoop...
..Here's something to try... [kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/xfysMXFrUY4" width="425" height="350" wmode="transparent" /]
*Coming close to the end of last book 'Breaking Dawn'
in the 'Twilight Series'... (IT'S SSSSOOOO GGGGOOOODDDD!!!) ...I'm really looking forward to 'New Moon' the movie
expected to drop in November...
Another possibility for the cast as
'Leah' (Female Werewolf).. .. *Zac better watch out if she starts doing
some 'Pro-Active Research'!!!
..Okay, so I was thinkingÂ "Leah' wasn't very BIG in
'New Moon'... Others were too.. Looks Like Vanessa
IS NOT up for 'Leah' at least not for 'NEW MOON'..
Maybe..she could hold off for 'Eclipse'Â or 'Breaking Dawn'...
I'm game for those to hit 'Big Screens' too...
*If you areÂ Â a 'Twilight' Lover like me... I know my niece Kaiti will be VERY HAPPY TOO.. *Taylor Launter..AKA... 'Jacob -Movie Twilight'
Is coming back for the sequel "NEW MOON"... ..
*I'm about 1/2 through the last book "Breaking Dawn"...
It's SO GOOD... It would be VERY COOL TO HAVE MOVIES
for ALL THE BOOKS... IF SO... Taylor will be VERY BUSY!!!
'Twilight' perfume via 'Hot Topic' new 'V-Day' smell?? Not sure about Smelling
'Twilight'..but I am hooked on the books/LOVED THE MOVIE..
Reading theÂ Final...
Â .. Man..I'm gonna be Sad when I'm done..
been a long time since I've been this into a Book Series...
Guess 'Twilight' is my'Harry Potter'...Never really got into 'HP'..
Looking forward to the second movie 'NEW MOON'Â Â expected to
hit theaters Nov 20th!!! :) (May have to send Robert some Visine to get him through)
I'm 'BIG TIME' hooked on this series.. ...
LovedÂ the book Â & the movieÂ directed by Catherine Hardwicke,
who made it to the 'Alamo' a bit ago, for a premiere!!!
Well.. Some changes for ...
... ...The movie:
New Director was announced: Chris Weitz (The Golden Compass)
& the word the 'Jacob' character may change from the first movie..
Since 'Jacob is 'BIG' in the book 'New Moon'... Perez has the scoop..
*I finished 'New Moon' & got...
..to read over 'Christmas VK' inbetween visiting w/ Family..
I CAN'T WAIT!!!! :)
*It did disturb me a bit that one of the praises on the back of the book says 'TEENS' will LOVE THIS! Wonder if I'm going thru a Mid-Life Crisis Early..
'Cuse I am LOV'N IT... Yes.. My 14, year old Niece Kaitii Â has read the First 2 books, I may have a jump on her w/ Eclipse over Christmas..
"SOMETHING WRONG w/ THAT!!! ???"
