Now, I'm a little bit of a music snob. I'll listen to anything as long as it's good and as long as it's not

A) Screamo

B) Banging shit with no definitive beat

C) Techno

D) Utter shite.

And so whilst I'm just chillin' and procrastinating exam study.. AGAIN, I was hit by a question that's been plaguing me for a while. What's your "Lullaby"

Your theme for Twilight.

Overdone songs?

Music cliches?


This is the post for everything on your inner musicians mind.

I'll start. Because I'm a critical bitch I'mma say that I LOATHE Carter Burwell's shit. Um no no no no Edward is supposed to be a VIRTUOSO. He's no Justin Timberlake. He's like the Liszt of nowadays and that lullaby sounded like it was composed by a primary school teacher. We all know that Alexander Desplat pwns his ass.

And I can't stand it when people try to describe classical music and it's obvious they know nichts HELLO every heard of wiki'ing that shit?

It really annoys me when people write a whole SONG in their fic. Good lord, if I wanted that I would google it moiself. A verse is enough.

This fandom needs more Iron and Wine.

There is a difference between angst and emo and if I ever read about a My Chemical Romance song lyric in ANYTHING. I stop reading.

I adore Music Lessons by Locqua. If you need classical and REAL classics not anything within the last 100 years then that fic is king. And you should check out Betrothed just for some Edward and Rosalie pre-twilight. *dies*

Anyone that can use a song and actually relate it to the fic is genius. americnxidiot, here's looking at you.

*And I will let you all know, I AM listening to Closer by NIN right. this. second.*

Ppps. Jack White is god.

Pppppsss... I'm a little hyper now.

Domward = WTFward

Friday November 6, 2009 at 8:11 PM

Okay Campers, it's time for a serious conversation.  I'm kinda hating DOMward and I'd like to hear what you all think.  Here's the deal:

I'm reading Master of the Universe.  I like it.  I also hate it.   I have serious issues with Domward.  He's a huge asshole.  And not asshole in the sexy-hot-needs-a-good-pussy-whipping kind of way.  I'm talking asshole in the I'm-gonna-beat-your-ass-if-you-lay-a-hand-on-me kind of way.

Now let me clarify that my only foray into the the world of BDSM (other than the weird REAL SEX specials on HBO at 3am) has been fanfic.  And the only sub/dom fics I have read are The Submissive, The Dominant, The Training, and now Master of the Universe.  So I fully understand that my sphere of knowledge is quite limited.  However, there's a common thread here that I find disturbing. 


In each of these stories, Edward, the DOM, has had some sort of childhood trauma.  Now I'm only up to chapter 35 in Mof the U, so I don't know what else from his past gets revealed.  But in these stories there's some sort of underlying emotional problem there, making it seem like the BDSM lifestyle is for people with serious intimacy issues who act out in unhealthy sexual ways.  It makes the Dom look like a sexual predator, or deviant. When these writers write these stories, I get the impression they are trying to shed light on to a little known lifestyle....but all they're doing is making the BDSM lifestyle look even more weird than it already is.

Am I the only one bothered by this?  A LOT of you really like these fics.  These stories receive HUGE numbers of reviews and have quite large followings.  But are any of you also disturbed by the use of sexual conquest and dominance as a means of acting out on unresovled intimacy and childhood abuse issues?

In M of the U... Bella clearly states that Edwards past as a Sub for Mrs. Robinson is "abuse".  She doesn't qualify his age (15 when it began) as the reason for it being abuse.  It seems to me she considers it abuse because he was young, naive and easily taken advantage of.  But how is she any different?  She was just as inexperienced!

(And I'm not even going to TOUCH how Edward took her virginity---that's a whole other post!)

And then Bella asks Edward why he enjoys punishing her, causing her pain.  His answer...

"It goes back to being 50 shades of fucked up Isabella. I need to control you. I need you to behave in a certain way…

....A bit, to see if you can take it… but that’s not the whole reason… It’s the fact that you are mine do with as I see fit – ultimate control over someone else."

He's admiting to being fucked up, and that's not the only time he's done so.

I realize that I've likely reached my hard limit.  I also enjoy the fact that I have the term "hard limit" in my vocabulary.  I honestly wonder what so many of you find so attractive in these stories.  Do you have fantasies of being dominated?  Is it just the fact that it's Edward? 

Personally, I could never be a sub.  My own personality is too strong and dominating, and perhaps I have my own issues with intimacy and control.  My husband calls me a control freak all the time.  But does that mean I want to flog him for rolling his eyes at me? 

Only when he complains about my very healthy obsession with a certain sparkly vampire and his uber-hot, human counterpart ;)

share your thoughts...


Rob Addresses Pregnancy Rumors...LMFAO!!!

Friday November 6, 2009 at 8:00 PM

“I like the story about me being pregnant,” laughed the 23-year-old British heartthrob. “It was in some Australian magazine, on the front page!”

As they’ve filmed “New Moon” and “Eclipse,” Rob and Kristen Stewart have spent the last 12 months going from “the kid in the Harry Potter movies” and “the girl from ‘Panic Room’ ” to the type of people whose every move is meticulously discussed, whether real or not. Luckily, Pattinson has the sort of self-deprecating British wit that allows him to laugh it all off.

“I was like, ‘Wow, that’s just [insane],’ ” he said of the pregnancy rumors. “And it’s not even ironic.





Friday November 6, 2009 at 7:51 PM

I read fanfiction sometimes. I'm sure you guysers do, too.

And some things squick me out. I'll be sitting there, reading, and then I'll read something that'll make me go ew ewewewwewewewewewewewewewww. Literally.

Like these:

"Her scent permeated the room." NO. Seriously, whenever I see that, I just wanna tell Bella/Alice/whatever "Hey, it's called a shower. Use one." If he can smell your vag from the other side of the room and he's not a vamp, then you need a wash.

Hole. Enough said.

Self-inserting. I find it creepy that you are that obsessed that you would make a character in your own image.

Adding a real person in. I signed up for AU or AH, not RPF.

I have more, I just can't think of them right now. I'll probably remember later.

Oh yeah, say what your things are too.


MTV Interviews Rob & Kristen; Behind the scenes

Friday November 6, 2009 at 6:00 PM

 MTV has some new interview footage from the set of New Moon, along with some behind the scenes footage from the fight in Volterra! 


I'm used to playing really distinct characters that are so far away from my normal reality,' Stewart says. With the end of principal photography on "Eclipse" in Vancouver late last month, Kristen Stewart completed her third "Twilight" series film as Bella Swan, the high school girl who falls hard for a vampire. Even before starting "Eclipse," though— at the very beginning of "New Moon," in fact, the second film in the franchise — the 19-year-old actress felt so comfortable playing the character that she had a hard time separating herself from Bella.

"I feel very much like I can't really tell a huge difference between myself and Bella anymore, as odd as that sounds," she admitted in an interview released by Summit Entertainment. "I'm used to playing really distinct characters that are so far away from my normal reality and in this case, the only thing that I was really worried about was just making sure it was absolutely honest and open and vulnerable and very present."

Following the 2008 original film — and the worldwide vampire craze that exploded as a result — Stewart had no problem falling back into step with her co-star Robert Pattinson on set. Much like Stewart, Pattinson had gone from a relatively low-key public profile to one of the biggest stars on the planet after his turn as vampire Edward Cullen. But once on set for "New Moon" — which hits theaters on November 20 — they easily found the same rhythm the duo maintained during "Twilight."

"We're both pretty instinctual, impulsive actors," Stewart explained. "We don't really hash things over and over because we both know our characters fairly well. It was easy to step back into the project because it was something we [already] did. Once you play someone — it's a strange thing — you don't forget who they are. And we work together well, so it was easy."

What makes Edward?

Friday November 6, 2009 at 1:30 PM

This has been asked a couple of times. Oh well.

What traits make Edward? If you take away the vampire, what's the canon characteristics that must be there in order for you to recognize him?

For me, here's the must haves:

-extremely competent

-dismissive/condescending toward some

-not very sexually experienced before Bella. thus, he can be a little possessive or immature when it comes to love

-old school charm


Tell me about one shots

Friday November 6, 2009 at 12:29 PM

I have been reading fanfic forever and would love to actually write a few. The Mental Edward contest has inspired me because psych is my specialty. I have a long story in mind but I am not sure what I am supposed to submit. I know its supposed to be a short section but should I start at the beginning, or submit a more interesting event that occurs later. Suggestions???


Robporn that make me feel a little insane...cause it looks like he would sooo fit in my trunk.




Rob...sexiest man alive?

Friday November 6, 2009 at 12:07 PM

Who Is People's Sexiest Man Alive 2009?
Does Pattinson have it locked up? Maybe not.
Actor Robert Pattinson arrives at the 2009 Vanity Fair Oscar Party hosted by Graydon Carter held at the Sunset Tower on February 22, 2009 in West Hollywood, California
Nov 05, 2009

We're likely about two weeks away from learning the identity of the Sexiest Man Alive, as chosen by People magazine. Given that there are fairly strict (if unwritten) criteria for being awarded this honor -- SMAs of recent years have typically been film actors between 30 and 45 -- it's usually easy to guess at who the next winner may be. Here are 10 contenders, a few of whom are outside the usual template for Sexiest Men Alive. For starters, the leading contender is a mere lad of 23.

Annie Wersching

Robert Pattinson: He has to be considered the heavy favorite, to the point where I would be surprised if it is anyone else. For starters, the Twilight sequelNew Moon will be premiering right around the time that the SMA issue comes out, providing a natural tie-in. And judging from how often Pattinson and his co-stars appear in the gossip media even without a film to promote, giving him the honor would be a license to print money. The only thing working against Pattinson is his age. The Sexiest Man Alive is typically not someone who could be described as "boyish." The honor has never been bestowed on someone who arguably needs to shave just once a month. Odds: Even money.


Brad Pitt: This isn't like being Miss America -- even after you've won Sexiest Man Alive, you're allowed to win it again, and Pitt is one of the few who has accomplished this feat. He has to be on any list of possible winners because, let's face it, he's Brad Freakin' Pitt. But there are two big arguments against him. One, there has never been a three-time winner. Two, there's that goatee he's been sporting of late, which has him looking more like an Allman Brother than someone gearing up to make an acceptance speech at the People offices. Odds: 8 to 1.

Neil Patrick Harris: He has had the kind of career year (even if he didn't get that Emmy) that could nicely be capped off by winning Sexiest Man Alive. Of course, the elephant in the room is Harris's sexual orientation. There's never been a gay winner of the SMA, at least not one who was out, and this is certainly no coincidence. Just like the annual People list of sexiest bachelors, which usually has only a token gay man or two in it even though the percentage of unmarried men who are gay is certainly quite high, there's an undeniable fantasy element to the naming of the Sexiest Man Alive. There may come a day when People will give the honor to someone that its female readers can't imagine sleeping with, but I doubt that day will be in 2009. Odds: 20 to 1

Robert Downey Jr.: He has some of the same factors going for him that Harris does: he's never won before; he's the right age, broadly speaking (44); he has a big project to promote over the coming weeks (Sherlock Holmes); and he's never been hotter than he is right now. However, most of the Sexiest Men Alive have a background in romantic comedies or action films, neither of which are Downey's forte (despite the Iron Man franchise). Quirkier actors have won before, but they have been men like Jude Law and Johnny Depp who are more conventionally gorgeous than Downey. He's an intriguing longshot. Odds: 10 to 1.

Colin Firth: He's considered a thinking woman's sex symbol by many, probably because he has the British accent and had his breakthrough role in Pride and Prejudice. This is shaping up as a big few months for Firth, given his supporting role in the will-probably-be-a-hit A Christmas Carol and his starring turn in A Single Man, which should land him on Oscar short lists. The big questions about Firth are his age (49) and whether he's really famous enough for People to even put him on its cover at all, let alone as the SMA. Odds: 30 to 1.

Mark Harmon: Naming Harmon would be a good way for People to tie into what is currently the top-rated show on television, NCIS. It would also be a shoutout to People's own history, since Harmon was Sexiest Man Alive way back in 1986, when he was dark-haired and starring on St. Elsewhere. But while being 58 probably doesn't completely disqualify him -- there has been one winner, Sean Connery, who was even older -- it's not really a point in his favor either. Odds: 50 to

Jake Gyllenhaal: He's been kind of quiet lately, but he does have a role in next year's Prince of Persiain which he will be showing off quite a physique. Plus, his current status as boyfriend to Reese Witherspoon, who is the sort of nice person People readers admire even if they would rather read about the disaster areas, makes him something of a role model. Gyllenhaal fits the general profile of a future Sexiest Man Alive, but like Matthew McConaughey or Matt Damon ten years ago, he probably needs more seasoning. Odds: 25 to 1.

Leonardo DiCaprio: How is it possible that this dude has never won SMA, given his idol status and his unending string of prestige projects? Bottom line is that he was probably too young and apple-cheeked to win at the time of Titanic (just as Pattinson may be today); and since then, DiCaprio, like Downey, has mostly pursued roles that don't play up sex appeal. He's also not a particular friend of celebrity journalism, which would make doing a cover story on him somewhat difficult. But a list of Sexiest Men Alive that doesn't include DiCaprio is an incomplete cultural history of the last 15 years. It would be as if Lindsay Lohan had never won Trainwreck of the Year. Odds: 5 to 1.

John Mayer:I'm mentioning him because 1) he's considered to be an attractive man; and 2) the scope of his little black book attests to the fact that an awful lot of famous women have personally found him quite sexy. He's also promoting a new album. However, there's never been a Sexiest Man Alive who was a musician (we'll ignore Pierce Brosnan singing in Mamma Mia!), so I doubt the first will be Mayer. Besides, who really wants to hear Kanye West shouting "I'm really happy for you John, but Usher was one of the sexiest men of all time!" Odds: 1000 to 1.

Barack Obama: Wait, hear me out. We know that People is not averse to putting this President on its cover. Naming him the SMA would get them more publicity than almost anything else you could think of. The downsides are that the magazine would surely get a flurry of subscription cancellations from those who believe Obama has already received too much attention from People, and from those who supported Glenn Beck's candidacy. Bottom line is that the Nobel Peace Prize/Sexiest Man Alive combo is a difficult one to pull off; the only person to ever win both in the same year is Bishop Desmond Tutu*. Odds: 40 to 1.
