Rob to attend the LA Breaking Dawn Convention – did we hear that right?

Yesterday, Cullyn and I were having a fantastic day at the Baltimore Twilight Convention when it was time to gather for the much-anticipated auction session. During the auction, Creation Entertainment offers Twilight Saga items ranging from action figures to the coveted convention banners for fans to bid on and take home. At the last LA TwiCon in March we scored a great deal on a Volturi banner ($70!) , so we were primed for bidding battle!

After about 15 minutes, the host/auctioneer decided it was time for a Robert Pattinson banner to go up for auction. For the prior banners, he threw in an autograph ticket so the celebrity guests at the Baltimore event could sign them…making the items even more valuable! When talking about the RPatz banner, the auctioneer casually said, “Unfortunately, Rob is not here to sign it, but he will be at our Century City event.” The Breaking Dawn Convention on 11/4 – 11/6 is being held at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza in the Century City area of Los Angeles!

Surprisingly, there wasn’t a huge reaction from the crowd, which made Cullyn and I look at each other and ask, “Did we just hear that?” Then someone from the back of the room yelled, “Would he sign it there?” At that point, we knew we heard him right. (BTW – the auctioneer did not respond to that person’s question, and no autograph ticket was provided.)

Earlier in the day, the host/auctioneer asked if anyone was attending the LA event, and we were only part of a handful of people to raise ours hands (and cheer). Plus, there weren’t a ton of people in the auction session. So, we attributed the lack of reaction to the Rob news to those two things.

Also, there was no mention of Kristen Stewart or Taylor Lautner attending the Breaking Dawn Convention, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t gong to be there…just that the auctioneer didn’t say anything about them.

So, we are super psyched! Of course, this comes with the caveat that Summit has not confirmed this news!

Here’s a post from Christina Perri’s blog about how much she wanted to be a part of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 Soundtrack!

september 26, 2011


two years ago i made a bucket list with my best friend full of all the things i could possibly dream of. keltie + i deemed 2010 “the 10″ and it was going to be the best year of our lives.

fast forward to july 2010… every single thing on my list came true (ie. quit smoking, sign a record deal, open a savings account, meet jason mraz.. etc..) seriously. it was epic + it all happened. 

so this past year keltie + i decided to do it again + this time were were going to dream even bigger! the number one thing on my list this year was:
 “HAVE A SONG ON THE BREAKING DAWN SOUNDTRACK” 
and it happened!!!!!! ahhhh!!!!! + the whole soundtrack seems amazing! im soo honored to be smack in the middle of all those artists! i am so grateful for this opportunity!

“a thousand years” is a brand new song me + my best friend david hodges wrote for bella + edward. we wrote it after we so luckily screened the movie (ahhhh! you’re all going to flip out its the best movie ever!!!) 

i couldn’t be more proud of this song.
or more proud of myself for not giving up on my dream.

the moral of this story is: 
everything is possible! 
manifest your dreams!
never ever ever give up!
dream HUGE!

yayy!!!

love,
cp

special thanks to: alexandra patsavas, chop shop + atlantic records xo

At last! The long-awaited playlist for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 was released today. Unfortunately, Jackson Rathbone’s band 100 Monkeys and Robert Pattinson do not have songs on the soundtrack. Not surprisingly, the Noisettes’ tune Sister Rosetta, which played during an exclusive Breaking Dawn Comic Con clip of Bella preparing for her “big night” and caused excited fans to scramble online to identify the title and artist, is track #9.

There will be two versions of the soundtrack; one will have the songs that appear on the artwork, below, and a second that contains four bonus tracks.

Here is the soundtrack!

1. End Tapes – By The Joy Formidable (Perfect for the soundtrack! Here’s their video “Austere.”)

3. It Will Rain – By Bruno Mars (According to recent buzz, he’s Team Bella.)
4. Turning Page – By Sleeping At Last
5. From Now On – By The Features
6. A Thousand Years – By Christina Perri (She’s a Twilight fan and known for her song “Jar of Hearts.”)
7. Neighbors – By Theophilus London
8. I Didn’t Mean It – By The Belle Brigade
9. Sister Rosetta (2011 Version) – By Noisettes (Scene: Bella frantically running around preparing for the beach/wedding night.)
10. Northern Lights – By Cider Sky
11. Flightless Bird, American Mouth (Wedding Version) – By Iron & Wine (Link is to the 2008 version from Twilight.)
12. Requiem On Water – By Imperial Mammoth
13. Cold – By Aqualung & Lucy Schwartz
14. Llovera – By Mia Maestro (Mia plays Carmen from the Denali Coven in Breaking Dawn!)
15. Love Death Birth – By Carter Burble

BONUS TRACKS
16. Like A Drug (Bonus Track) – By Hard-Fi
17. Turning Page (Instrumental) – By Sleeping At Last
18. Eclipse (All Yours) [Bonus Track] – By Kevin Teasley (Here’s the version by Metric.)
19. It Will Rain – By Bruno Mars [Edit]

The Breaking Dawn – Part 1 soundtrack will be available on November 8.

Thanks to Summit Entertainment for the info!

In the air and on the road to Forks for Stephenie Meyer Day 2011

Our trek to Forks, WA for Stephenie Meyer Day 2011 began at 6:00 am EST and ended at 8:15 pm PST. Here are the details of our (almost glitch-free) trip:

6:00 am EST – Wake up, shower, eat breakfast and wait for the airport shuttle to arrive at 7:15 am.
7:15 – 7:25 am EST- Wait for the shuttle. Double check Twilight Saga apparel.
7:30 am EST – Shuttle arrives with a very chatty driver (we’re not morning people) and news that we need to pick up two more people.
7:35 am EST – receive SWA text that flight is delayed an hour which will make us miss our connection. Great.
7:45 am EST – Pick up a very buff 60 year-old women who is flying out to San Diego (sigh) to meet a cycling group  who is biking from CA to Georgia. She’s riding 120 miles/day.  We’re doing that, too – today…in a car.
8:00 am – Receive text from SWA that flight is now on time. ???
8:15 am – Pick up last passenger who is not real chatty. Realize I left our boarding passes on the dining room table.
8:45 am – Arrive at PHL. Reprint boarding passes. Wait for 30 minutes to get through security line because there were two TSA people checking IDs and only two security lines. On a Friday morning.
9:50 am EST – Take cheesy tourist self-portrait. Board flight to STL. No drama.

At PHL waiting to board our flight.

11:35 am CST – Arrive in STL. Seek lunch. Not many healthy options.
12:10 pm CST – Board flight to SEA. Read The Official Guide to the Twilight Saga. Slept 90 minutes.
2:10 pm PST – Arrive in SEA 35 minutes early! Yay! Get rental car. No drama.
2:30 pm PST – Cullyn, “Why is the GPS taking us north?”
3:00 pm PST – Cullyn, “Why are we following the signs for the ferry?” (She’s afraid of being on boats.) Me, “Trust the GPS.”
3:45 pm PST – In line for the Edmonds – Kingston, WA Ferry. Whoops. 

So, after disembarking the ferry and traveling on a lot of two-lane, windy roads we arrived in Forks at 8:15 pm! Off to Bella’s Bridal Shower!

100 Monkeys sings hurricane song

At last night’s 100 Monkeys concert at the House of Blues in Anaheim, CA the band’s instant song was called “Hurricane.” Jackson Rathbone, who plays Confederate soldier-turned-vampire Jasper Hale in The Twilight Saga, was on lead vocals.

During every 100 Monkeys show, the band asks the audience to shout out suggestions for an instant song – then the guys create and perform it on the spot.

Here is fan @OhMyCarlisle’s YouTube video of “Hurricane.”

Visiting Forks? Relief is here! Introducing the Twilight Twoilet

Twilight Twoilet


From the Forks, WA website 8/9/2011.

Written by Christi Baron

The members of West End Business & Professional Association and Forks Chamber of Commerce have gone in together on two Sanicans placed downtown for the summer tourists.  Merchants in the area of the stoplight had been complaining about Twilight visitors using their restrooms which are usually back in store rooms and not meant for public use.

So a regular sanican was delivered first and when the folks at West Waste and Recycling delivered the second one it had a custom paint job, I call it the “Twilight Twoilet.”

Now Forks visitors have their pick: regular or Twilight!

Creators of the TWILIGHT parody to connect with fans for a weekend of celebrations

FORKS, WA – Hannah and Hilly Hindi, creators of The Hillywood Show®, are joining with TWILIGHT fans and the citizens of Forks to celebrate Stephenie Meyer Day. Although the Hindi sisters have visited Forks three times, this will be their first appearance at the annual celebration of Stephenie Meyer and her literary world. Now in its fifth year, Stephenie Meyer Day 2011 encompasses an entire weekend of TWILIGHT-themed events from September 9-11.

The Hillywood Show® will talk with TWILIGHT fans about parody, scriptwriting and filming during a literary symposium. They will also join designer John Henson, owner of The Twilight Costume Collection, for photo opportunities and discussions about costuming. In addition to their other work, the Hindi sisters will screen their immensely popular TWILIGHT, NEW MOON and ECLIPSE parodies.

“We are honored to be included in Stephenie Meyer Day. Without Stephenie Meyer and Twilight, The Hillywood Show® wouldn’t be where it is today,” said Hilly Hindi, co-creator of The Hillywood Show®. “Forks is truly a magical place, and The Hillywood Show® will never pass on an opportunity to visit it over and over again!”

Other guests for the weekend include York Baur, director of TWILIGHT IN FORKS; Dr. Natalie Wilson, author of SEDUCED BY TWILIGHT; Veronica Blake, author of historical romance novels; and Natalia Cherjovsky, PhD, who wrote her doctoral dissertation from Oxford on TWILIGHT.
