What Song Do You Think HAS To Be In Breaking Dawn?

For me, ♪ ♫ music ♫♪ is a big part of a movie.  
It helps set the mood so beautifully 
if the right music is chosen....
and makes it more memorable.
I have to say that I love the soundtrack's
 from all three movies so far, 
but my favorite has to be the 
Twilight Soundtrack and Carter Burwell's score.  

I remember when my daughter and I went to Borders to buy the Twilight Soundtrack, and as soon we got back in the car we put the CD in. 
 When "Supermassive Black Hole" came on, we just looked at each other, smiled, and said 'Yesssssssss!!!!!"   
We were right there in the baseball scene
 while driving in the car.  
Then we bought the Twilight Score.  If you don't own the Score for Twilight - I highly recommend it.  I can listen to the Twilight Score in my car driving to work, and feel like I'm watching the movie.  
Can I just ask, what the hell happened to "Bella's Lullaby"?  I loved it in Twilight!  I realize that they used a different composer for New Moon and Eclipse, but I fully expected to hear "Bella's Lullaby" in New Moon when Edward gives Bella the CD for her birthday (which they cut out.....BASTARDS!).
You are totally picturing Edward walking into the lunchroom while listening to that 
(and you get to hear Lizzie Pattinson too!)

Anyway....I'm getting off track.  I really feel like the Twilight Soundtrack and Score captured the mood of the movie much better than the other two soundtracks (which I do totally love also BTW)
Anyway, if you've ever gone over the the Goddess's website and looked at HER playlist for each of the books, you will notice that the movie makers really did not take SM's musical inspirations into consideration.
Okay, yeah, they captured her musical taste 
by using many of the groups that she loves.
However, the only actual song from SM's playlist that actually made it into one of the movies so far has been
"Tremble for my Beloved" by Collective Soul.

So let's take a look at Stephenie Meyer's
 Breaking Dawn Playlist
Of all the songs on her list, I think that
"I'll Follow You Into The Dark"
by Death Cab for Cutie
to be in Breaking Dawn!
When I hear that song, the following quote from
Breaking Dawn 
comes to mind.......
"It was not going to be the end of the world. Just the end of the Cullens. The end of Edward, the end of me. I preferred it that way – the last part anyway. I would not live without Edward again; if he was leaving this world, then I would be right behind him."

Bella Cullen, Breaking Dawn, Chapter 34, p.652

Have a listen for yourself......

So, what song do you think HAS to be in 
Breaking Dawn?
Maybe it's a song from SM's playlist.....or maybe a song from your own personal Twilight Playlist.
Tell us in the comments......

Twilight Junkie Tuesday Featuring.....Cat!

Well, Twilight Junkie Tuesday is back from hiatus, and we are featuring one of our awesome followers....Cat.

Cat, I just discovered, has a really cool blog called The Daily Twimes!  She is a funny chick and I think you will totally dig her take on all things Twilight.  So head on over there and show her some love - after you show her some love here in the comments! :)

Take it away Cat!

What got you into Twilight?
You know, the funny thing is it all stems back to my mother-in-law. I think if my FIL would let her, she'd just make her bed out of a gazillion books. One day, back in January of '09 I walk into her living room and see Twilight sitting on the couch. I pick it up and say "hmm yeah know, I've been curious to read this." Up til that point I only had heard people say they had read it. I hadn't even seen previews for the movie (I live in a closet, what can I say). She told me to take it and read it and tell her if it was worth it. Two weeks later and all the books read....well you know the rest.

Do your family and friends know how deep your twi-obsession goes (be specific about what your obsession is, how do you hide it, or how do you advertise it)
Everyone knows my life is Twilight. Even my 8 year old autistic son is Team Rosalie and is sure to let everyone know his mama is Team Edward. I absolutely adore the books and in turn I'm a fan of the movies. Even though parts of the movies make me squirm, I love them because the cast and crew loves the books. They are invested (and not just financially). I love this entire franchise. I absolutely do NOT hide it. In fact, I have a "Twilight Junkie" decal on the back of my car!

Are you team edward, team jacob, team (fill in the blank)? Why, is it because of the character or the person that plays them in the movie?
I am Team Edward loud and proud! I was Team E when I read the books and I continue to be Team Edward (and Team Rob) through the movies. The main reason I was sold on Edward was his absolute unconditional love. He would sacrifice his own happiness for Bella. The first time I read that he held Bella while she cried over Jacob....well, that sold me right there. And the fact that Rob plays him is just the bonus prize ;)

Which Twilight book is your favorite and why?
Short answer for this. Breaking Dawn because I get everything I wanted in the end. ha!

If you read fanfic and your willing to admit it which is your favorite story?
I do, and Emancipation Proclamation is my favorite with a close second of The Blessing and The Curse. CHECK THEM OUT!

Which person would you most likely still be into if they were not involved in Twilight; explain why.
A lot of chicks will hate me for this, but I love Kristen Stewart. Once I saw her in The Runaways, it just reaffirmed my love for her as an underdog (although I don't believe she is). She took that Joan Jett performance and whooped it's ass.

If you ever met your favorite Twilight star how would you react? What would you do or say.
You know, I've gone through this in my head so many times. If I met Rob, I would be respectful, but I also would give him my phone number and tell him the next time he was in Wisconsin to call me up for some beers and brats! I just hope that it would really turn out that way and not me joking on my own spit or something graceful like that.

If you were to replace any person in Twilight who would you replace them with and why.
This is an unfair question due to the fact that I love every single actor in this franchise. But I'm going to find a loop hole. Bryce as Victoria. Sorry Bryce, you are a great actress, but you aren't Rachelle!

How many times have you read the Twilight Saga? If you've read it multiple times, what makes you keep rereading? If you've only read it once, why haven't you reread it?????
I am on my 7th "revamp". Currently in the midst of New Moon. I re-read it because I always find something new. And I still have the same strong emotions as I did when I read it for the first time. It's the only book(s) that has ever had a permanent spot next to my bed.

What is your most precious item in your Twilight collection and why? (share pics if possible)
As you can see, I have a special place for my Twilight collection and I love all the "stuff" I have, but my most cherished is that big poster board between the Rob posters. It is slowly growing. That board holds all the gifts and cards all my twi-sisters have given and/or made for me and it means so much! My son even drew a picture of the Cullens so I added it as well. I love that board!

What is the craziest Twilight related thing you've done? (include pics if possible)
I really wish I had a "craziest" story, but let me tell you I would do pretty much anything to win a trip to the Breaking Dawn set! For the Eclipse midnight premiere I painted my car up with car markers (see one of the pics Twilight Eclipse or Bust!) Also, I'm traveling from Milwaukee to Nashville JUST to be with the rest of my Twi-sisters that I've met on twilightmoms next March for the Twilight convention!

What is your favorite song from the Twilight Saga and why?
Again, UNFAIR! I love those soundtracks! If I had to pick ONE song, it would be "Hearing Damage" by Thom Yorke. The eeryness of the song and the scenes that went a long with it play constantly in my head when I hear it.

Tell us your favorite quote from each book?
"Be Safe" - Edward, Twilight
"When I told you that I didn’t want you, it was the very blackest kind of blasphemy." - Edward, New Moon
"The clouds I can handle. But I can’t fight with an eclipse." - Jacob, Eclipse
"Um… carefully, Bella. Ow." - Edward, Breaking Dawn

Has Twilight taken over your life? Explain.
Well, it prompted me to do something I've hated doing all my life. Write. I started a blog finally this year called The Daily Twimes. I truly try to keep it updated daily and try to keep it snarky. Besides the blog, everyone I come in contact to I usually end up talking about Twilight and talking them INTO reading it. I've met some true friends from all around the world because of it. It's taken over my craft room (see picture) and even inspired some of my jewelry pieces and art. Twilight is in my daily life. Some may say it's a superficial interest, but it has also lead me to donating my time and money to some great organizations like Alex's Lemonade Stand to help fight childhood cancer.

Tell us anything else Twilighty about yourself that you would like to share.
I usually wouldn't admit this, but when I'm shopping for clothing or putting together outfits, I'm usually in twi-mode. So many things in my life are reflected even sub-consciously! I love Twilight and I love this fandom! I'm so glad I found twilight junkies anon! 

Thanks Cat for letting us get to know you!  I totally love your little Twilight space that you carved out for yourself!  It's so cute!  I wish I could do something like that. :(

The Best Cure to a Blah Day??? Rob, Silly!

Last night I was sitting online with Facebook and fanfic open. I wasn't getting too into the story I was reading because I had just been having a blah day (has nothing to do with the quantities of alcohol I consumed the night before) when the lovely Robzsinger messaged me and expressed that she; as well, was having one of those blah nights.

My night went from blah to laughing and joking and having a good time. We chatted about everything from Rob being back in London with his beard (not talking about KStew) and Bob Marley T-Shirt to Rob having a long career like Harrison Ford sans earring *shudder* to Johnny Depp *swoon* and Winona Ryder's Edward Scissorhands romance being like R&K's Twilight romance to Rob's glorious accent to Rob speaking French and we both swooned over that!

This got me thinking of how much I love Rob's accent (or any man with an accent for that matter; they all turn me into a panty dropping h00r) and I really love it when he speaks other languages besides English. So I though I would share with you some of my favorite video's of Rob speaking other languages

Let's start off with the inspiration French:

Rob is being slightly silly but it's hot either way!

Next is German:

Not exactly the language of romance but Rob makes it one!

How about a little Hungarian:

On the set of Bel Ami. He made those girls SWOON!

And finally Spanish:

I live in a town where I can find lots of people to speak Spanish to me.. but the way Rob does it its just soooo HOT!

So if you were having one of those blah days today, I really hope this helped cheer you up and pulled you out of your funk :)

Update: Here Fran just for you!!! Rob speaking Italian... well he only says ciao and bene but still it's Italian

I have struggled with my weight all my life.
Yeah, I know.....everyone says that, right?  It's true though.
I've never been skinny.
But that is about to change because of this man.....

IRWTSMN is going to be'll change lives!

Here are some ways I've tried to lose weight in the past.

I've tried counting calories.
I've tried Richard Simmons Food Mover (yes, I'm that old!)
I actually still have this somewhere.  It's not the worst diet plan really.
If you can deal with looking at this *shudder*.
Of course I've tried Weight Watchers.  The first time I tried it, I took it upon myself to coordinate at work meetings at my school.   Those were great because we held them in the school library right after no excuses.  Just go to the damn meeting.  Then when school ended that year, I signed up for meeting through the summer.  $150, and I went to one meeting!  That's right.  I paid $150 for ONE meeting.

Let me see.....
I've also tried Meridia
And before you guys *tsk, tsk* me,  I have seen the news coverage this week about it.  And you can rest assured that I have not taken this in several years.  When you first start taking it, it works really great.  You have this amazing willpower that you never had, and you have no idea where it came from!  It is amazing.  But it maybe lasted 3 months tops, and then my body adjusted to it and it just didn't work anymore.  I did stop taking it for a while, and then tried one more time.  Same effect.
And frankly, I'd rather be fat and alive, than skinny and dead of a heart attack

Then there is the diet I invented called "The Half Diet"
The Half-Diet works pretty good and is pretty doable, 
if you can wrap your head around it.
I just ate pretty much what I wanted within reason, 
but I only ate half of everything.
I was actually quite successful with this one.  
I don't know why I couldn't make it stick.

Oh, I almost forgot Alli!
I won't even go there with this one! LOL

Now Trixie and Tess have proposed an amazing, motivating diet plan
and I am soooo on board with this one!
It's the "If Rob Were To See Me Naked" Diet.
Every time I think about eating something I shouldn't - I think of those lovely little letters....
It has been an amazing motivator for me!
So here is my GOAL
I kid, I kid! 
But it's fun to imagine, right? (darn FF!)
Seriously, my goal right now has to be to fit into the clothes that I own and can't fit into.  My long term goal, is to have to buy all new clothes because everything in my closet is tooooo big!

Anyway, thanks Trixie and Tess for taking the diet by the balls and running with it!
And if you haven't joined in - then get on over there!

Also - my sister and I started a blog at the beginning of the year called
I just dusted it off and opened it up to the public and I am opening it up to any of you ladies that are interested in being an author on that blog, just let me know by sending me an email.
