Ha HA! I told you I would be back soon! While you’re reading today, please enjoy these recently-released New Moon pics!
So I’ve been paying more attention to Twitter lately. I finally gave in and started following every single Twilight actor. Everyone. Even little Boo Boo Stewart. (I know, right? Boo Boo?!?!?) He’s the kid playing Seth Clearwater, and he’s super cute. And apparently he’s all the rage amongst preteen girls, because he keeps tweeting about doing photoshoots for Bop and Tiger Beat.
You can learn a lot from Twitter. For example, David Slade, director of Eclipse, is an avid user. Most of the time he posts random pictures of sticks and leaves and grass. Occasionally he’ll say something about the movie he’s making too. Like this: “and so to bed dear readers, 6am call tomorrow, back into the fray after this brief weekend sabbatical. Snow and heartbreak begins in the am.” Is he talking about the TENT SCENE!?!?! Oh gosh. Oh gosh. Oh gosh!
The biggest news from Twitter this week? Simon Pegg is Team Jacob! If you don’t know Simon Pegg is… well, then, I hate you. No, no, not really. Simon Pegg is a British actor/writer, responsible for movies like Shaun of the Dead (my all-time favorite movie of ALL TIME) and Hot Fuzz. And he was in Star Trek. I love him. But he’s not someone I would expect to be reading these books.
Apparently I don’t know anything though, because he Twilight-tweeted nonstop for 24 hours. Here’s what he had to say:
“Was bitten by a weregoat in Greece. No idea when I’ll change or what powers I will have. Intrigued!!”
“Wait, I think I changed last night. My sofa’s gone.”
“Read the Twilight books on hols. Really enjoyed them in a sort of ‘creepy old man reading delusional, horny, daughter’s diary’ way.”
“For a slightly more adult skewed werewolf novel, read Toby Barlow’s, Sharp Teeth. Utterly brilliant. http://tiny.cc/3s30R”
“I’m definitely team Jacob. I much rather have good abs and burst sneakers than liquid topaz eyes and a fear of hand jobs.”
“Oh come on, the Cullens are so up themselves. Pretentious much? You’re vamps for frick’s sake, drink human blood and stop crying! (help).”
“I just woke up naked, in a petting zoo in Buckinghamshire. Where the hell have I been since 3pm? Hey I’m verified! I’m so disoriented!”
“Yeah I definitely transformed into a goat. . I did a pooh and loads of partly digested literature came out. I think New Moon was in there.”
“I’m not being mean about New Moon. I simply said I may have eaten whilst in the form of a goat. I don’t hate. It ain’t my style.”
“Right, I’m going straight to bed, think I’m beyond a bath. Go Jacob!!”
Go Jacob?!?!? Whaaaa??? Mr. Pegg, you disappoint me. But I guess I should’ve known. He’s a boy. Most boys are Team Jacob, right? Because they’re all jealous of Edward? They don’t understand his emo sensitive ways? That’s it.
In other Twilight news, the opening scene of Eclipse is going to be focused on Riley, Rob is still pretty much nowhere to be found, and Ashley Greene is going to be a bird for Halloween. BIG TIME STUFF! Thanks for stopping by! I heart you all.
P.S. For all you Johnny Flynn fans out there (which is everyone in the world, right?), he’s got two new songs up on his myspace page. It’s fun!
