Although it's only a manip, we found this New Moon poster on ROBsessed and decided it's just too yummy not to pass it on to our readers. Nom-Nom-Nom!!
Thanks, ROBsessed for stopping our hearts! It just reminds us that sitting through all that Bella/Jacob crap will be soooo worth the scene in Volterra. LOL...J/K! Not really though... ;o)
Look what I found in my March issue of the Costco Connection! They interviewed Robert Pattinson to correspond with the release of their Special DVD and Exclusive Ultimate Fan Gift Set. Thanks, Costco!
INTERVIEW WITH THE VAMPIRE:
By J. Rentilly
WHILE DOOMED beauty may be the cinematic
stock in trade of handsome, dashing,
22-year-old actor Robert Pattinson, the
English actor who played Cedric Diggory in
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, he lives a
perfectly charmed life. “Lucky,” he calls it with
a modest laugh, preparing for the March 21
DVD release of Twilight, yet another blockbuster
adaptation of a beloved literary property,
in this case the vampire novels of
Stephenie Meyer. In the film, Pattinson plays—
what else?—another doomed beauty, the
angst-ridden blood-sucker Edward Cullen.
The Costco Connection: Tell me about
the differences between being a young, hand-
some movie star and being a young, handsome
Robert Pattinson: I guess it all depends
on how much you like going around killing
people. [Laughs] I’m not sure that being goodlooking
has anything to do with it, except vampires
have always been attractive, haven’t they?
CC: Your Twilight character, Edward, is different
from standard cinematic vampires. I’m
wondering if you looked over the blood-sucking
canon for inspiration.
RP: You’re right, there’s very little about
Twilight that’s really vampire-ish. It’s about
vampires, I guess, but they’re not the same
vampires you’re used to seeing in other
movies. I found myself looking to real iconic
figures and characters, those timeless, attractive
figures, for inspiration: James Dean,
Jack Nicholson, that old French film
Breathless. Edward’s an outsider, mysterious,
a bad boy, all the things girls find attractive.
I wanted to find the qualities that made
those actors and those performances so
appealing, so charismatic. I can’t say I modeled
the performance on anything or anyone,
but I was looking for charisma and
chemistry and trying to figure out what’s
worked before in the movies.
CC: You’re an accomplished musician. You actually
have a couple of your songs in Twilight.
RP: It’s very bizarre. The director, Catherine
Hardwicke, was listening to one of my CDs, I
guess, and when she showed me an early cut
of the film I realized she had used one of my
songs in the movie. Not in the end credits,
but in a key moment in the movie. It all
matched perfectly—the music, the lyrics,
the scene. I had no idea.
CC:Hardwicke, incidentally, says you have these
“long, beautiful vampire fingers.”
RP: I think what she meant is: I have very
weird hands. There’s a scene in the film where
my character plays the piano, and I actually
had to learn it myself because they couldn’t
find a hand double that was convincing
enough to match my weird fingers.
CC: Are you a lucky guy?
RP: I think I am. I remember when I was
younger I used to write in my diary: I want
my luck to be spread. Never give me anything
too lucky all at once. I’ll take a little luck now
and then, but spread it for 70 years. Now that
all of this is happening, I’m sure the rest of
my life will be ruined. [Laughs] C

New Moon Casting Complete, Eclipse Gets New Director
(live-PR.com) - The rumor mill has been on fire with talk of Madonna, Vanessa Hudgens, AnnaLynne McCord, and Dakota Fanning being hired for a coveted spot on the New Moon cast, however there has been no official confirmation of any of them being hired.
There have also been rumors circulating that Drew Barrymore will be directing the third installment of Stephenie Meyer's Twilight Series. These rumors are false. Due to the New Moon production schedule for director Chris Weitz, his brother and co-owner of "Depth of Field Productions" - Paul Weitz - will be directing Eclipse. Chris Weitz is about to start directing "New Moon" but will still be in post-production when the third film starts shooting. Just last week, Summit officially announced "Eclipse" will be released in theaters June 10, 2010.
Eclipse will NOT be filmed back-to-back with New Moon, and there will be completely separate casting cycle. Details about future auditions and open casting calls for Eclipse can be found on the following auditions website: acting411.
Some may have already seen these, but I thought I'd post a few of my favorites. Lion & Lamb Love has some new outtakes from a Teen Vogue photoshoot of Robert, Kristen, Kellan, Nikki, Jackson and Ashley. Kind of funky, but still so worth checking out. The rest can be found on their site. Enjoy!
Thanks, Lion and Lamb, for sharing the Love!

Ya think this is why Kristen describes these as "Psychotic Situations"? DAMN! Poor Rob, he looks a little overwhelmed.
At 10:00 a.m. this morning there was a report of a roaming Moose in Orange,CA!! More details on http://kappakappamoose.blogspot.com
After a day of press promoting the film Twilight in Tokyo, Japan, stars Taylor Lautner, Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson braved the cold, wet snow and sleet to join their thousands of fans that were unphased by it.
The men were very handsome (of course) and Kristen was beautiful in a dress that would have been very fitting for Sunday's Oscars had she felt inclined to be there.
Of course the event at the Ebisu Garden Place was nothing short of the other "Psychotic Situations" they've been in before. Fans thrust pictures, books, and posters at them for autographs and there were lots of cameras for pictures with/of the stars. Rob even stopped for a photo op with one lucky gal who claims to be "Mrs. Pattinson". Yeah...good luck with that...the line forms HERE!

E!Online is reporting that Robert Pattinson, Hugh Jackman and friends may be partaking in a little Karaoke while in Tokyo to promote their respective films. There's a drunkfest I'd love to witness!
Robert Pattinson & Hugh Jackman Karaoke in Tokyo
Robert Pattinson was a first-time Oscar presenter on Sunday. Hugh Jackman was a first-time host.
So, how'd the two first-timers celebrate?
Maybe with a little karaoke.
I just got word that Pattinson and Jackman engaged in some karaoke crooning together this week at a bar in Tokyo.
The two have been in Japan on business. Pattison touched down on Tuesday to promote Twilight while Jackman and Nicole Kidman attended last night's premiere of Australia.
Says a source, "They went after doing press for their films."
Details are still trickling in, but I'm told Australia director Baz Luhrmann joined them, too.
It's Official...as mentioned in my previous post...it's time to enter Summit's New Moon Contest! Click here to enter with a ONE MINUTE video by March 20th to win a trip to the set and chance to be in New Moon. Best of Luck to Everyone!

Ask the 'Twilight' Cast!
Posted by ExtraTV Staff on February 26, 2009 1:46 PM
Get ready to sink your teeth into something special, Twilighters... because "Extra" is bringing you closer than ever to your favorite vampires! We'll have the entire cast of "Twilight" on our set next week -- and they'll be answering questions from YOU!
Rob Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner, Ashley Greene, Jackson Rathbone -- they're all waiting to hear from you! Just upload your video questions! Rob and Kristen have answered for you before -- in fact, so has Jackson!
Be sure to watch "Extra" next week -- and see if your questions were asked!
Although reps for either camp have yet to confirm, Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Drew Barrymore might just be on the short list to direct Eclipse. We'll certainly keep you posted as more news becomes available. Here's the scoop:
'Twilight': Is Drew Barrymore a candidate to direct third movie, 'Eclipse'?
Feb 26, 2009, 07:45 PM by Nicole Sperling
As Summit Entertainment looks to lock in a director for the third installment of the Twilight series, Eclipse, the company is talking to a select group of directors -- including actress-turned-helmer Drew Barrymore, EW has learned. While this news may come as a surprise to some, Barrymore did just finish work on her directorial debut, Whip It! starring Ellen Page.
How cool would that be?! Twilightlexicon shares news today that Summit will be holding a contest for one lucky fan to be in New Moon.
Summit Announces Contest
February 26, 2009
We have an exciting announcement to share with you. We will be launching a contest on our official film website, giving one lucky fan the opportunity to visit the set and a chance to appear in THE TWILIGHT SAGA: NEW MOON.
The “Be a Part of NEW MOON” contest will go live very soon. Entry details are forthcoming. The contest will be for US/Canada residents.
Filming in Volterra Not Confirmed Yet?
February 26, 2009
A while ago, we reported on a Variety article in which New Moon was seemingly confirmed to be shooting in Volterra, Italy–the place in the New Moon book where the Volturi reside. However, the Tourism Commission of Volterra seems to have heard different news, and just today Luciano from their group shares this with us–
"Municipality of Volterra has written many letters to Summit Entertainment with only one short answer (we read it..and sounds like: "oh, thank you..we are thinking about it…") but has no more been contacted by New Moon production.
I know that Variety.com wrote "Volterra, two weeks in may". But, the day after, "Eagle Pictures" (Italian distribution) said to italian press that everything was misunderstood by the columnist Nick Vivarelli."
If you visit the website they have set up–they being the group of the Municipality of Volterra, Tourist Office, Bank of Volterra and Fondazione CRV, you can read a heartfelt letter (in Italian) that was sent to Summit, and more news concerning their attempts to have New Moon filmed in their lovely home city.
If you’d like to help them, they’ve set up a petition for you to sign that is fairly easy to understand whether you speak Italian or English if you believe New Moon should be filmed in Volterra. Hhopefully we’ll be hearing more insight into this situation!
What are your thoughts? Will it make it more authentic when watching New Moon KNOWING it was filmed in Volterra, Italy, vs. a soundstage? Let’s just hope that if Summit bypasses filming in Volterra to save a buck that they step it up with a realistic set. I’m not sure I care as long as Rob (er…Edward) is shirtless when Bella reaches him!
Alright, so lets see. Hmmm...The band was just great. Jerad was very interactive with the audience. That was really nice. He's been more reserved at the last couple of shows I've been to. Jackson looked smashing as always and was really excited that it was Fat Tuesday. He passed out 3 bead necklaces and I got one of them. =) Ben G, was amazing as always, Wanda from Ben Graupner fans was there and he was really excited to meet her. He kept saying "Hi Wanda" over the microphone. Ben J, and Sean were of course really quiet, but I finally got some great shots of Ben J. Its so difficult to do so since he's in the back. Uncle Larry was awesome as always. He came up to my friends and I and shook our hands after the show. I loved it when they were playing a song and Jackson broke 2 strings on the guitar he was using and kept playing. It was great. I know people that just quit. He knew what to do. He seemed pretty proud of himself. I was really excited when they started play "Orson Brawl" and was going to film it, but Marty (the banana guy) and a group of other people started a mosh pit(again) and pushed me out of the way. So I couldn't film. Everything was fine, except for the wannabe mosh pits. I have bad knees and joints and I was right in the front and every time they would try to start one, I would get pushed into the stage which is even with my knees. A couple of us in front got knocked down onto the stage. I think it happened to me the most. It wasn't very cool. But aside from that, it was great. I love seeing the guys perform. They're amazing. I'm just bummed that I wont be going back up until March 19th for their all ages show at The Mint.

Move over, Robert Pattinson. A new supernatural heartthrob is set to hit the big screen. Pattinson, who starred as “Twilight’s” leading man, vampire Edward Cullen, skips town after just two scenes in the franchise’s sequel, “New Moon,” making way for Taylor Lautner’s werewolf, Jacob Black, to romance Kristen Stewart’s character, Bella.

We've been lucky enough to see 100 Monkeys play a number of times and I have to say, each time I'm more impressed. My first post for today (yes, only my first :)) I just wanted to share a few photos of those Monkeys we love so much. The first, our lovely Team Moose sister, Ana got while in San Fran this past weekend. I can't believe we have 100 Monkeys taking a picture with JTM. He's is one lucky moose. Personally I think next time it should be a lovely coven mother, hmmm, let's just say me for example should be in the middle of that picture too. Yeah, I'm liking that idea more and more. 100 Monkeys, if you're out there, how about it? LOL.
Coven sister, Tammy (damn lucky woman who lives close enough to walk to 24k every Tuesday) made it to last nights show. Lovin' Jackson's outfit here. Can you say, yum? Yes, I think so.
That's all from me for now! I'll be back later with a first hand account of last nights wonderful show and hopefully more pictures! If you get a chance to see 100 Monkeys....DO. They're amazing. So talented that you just want can't help but come back for more. I'll leave you with a poem I wrote for them.

Apparently, Rob isn't the sporty type as you can see in Kellan's best Rob impersonation.
And if you get an email on facebook from Kellan Lutz....its not him....not that I actually believed the sent me a message but if you come across a unexpect Kellan message its fake.. Kellan makes it known he does not have a myspace page nor a facebook.

Talk about a roller coaster! Five weeks ago, I don't think any one of us had any idea of what Team Moose was going to turn into. It is amazing what can happen with 4 women, Starbucks, and a moose! Thank you Vanessa, Julie, Kelley, and Ana!
I can't wait to see what this all turns into!
