Hi you guys,
As I mentioned a while back the move was planned weeks ago, yet always something happened. Well, now we’ve done it. Still this is not the domain name move I was mentioning but to a new free blog server. Sorry guys but business is low :P.
Anyway… starting on Monday 08.02.2010 we are on blogspot.com… I found it more useful and now I’ve made the move.
Step by step all the old posts will be moved there also, but for now you can read the latest 100 posts plus a few new ones.
So, the new address is http://twilight-s-news.blogspot.com/ learn it, bookmark it, share it… eh… you know what to do with it… Use it and abuse it…
Ah… there’s a poll there that I hope you’ll take a look at and maybe even vote on it… Please do so. It would mean the world to me…
Thank you guys!

We saw this one coming a mile away — turns out the insanely hot new “True Blood” werewolf Joe Manganiello has stirred up some body envy in a different wolfpack: the lupine boys of “The Twilight Saga.”
We caught up with Manganiello at Comic-Con this weekend, hitting up EW and SyFy’s celebration Saturday night, where he told us he’s seeing his furry brethren from the Summit films all over Hollywood and beyond.
Kristen Stewart – ‘Welcome to the Rileys’, ‘K-11′ and ‘On the Road’ – both in pre-production.
In 2009, a person who was in rehab with Chaske Spencer, decided to go public with the information that Chaske Spencer had gone to rehab selling his story to TMZ. Chaske Spencer responded by putting the following statement on his blog:
“Personal Message from Chaske Spencer Setting the Record Straight
To all the wonderful, incredibly loyal fans:
For those of you that read that I was in rehab, I wanted to make sure you heard the truth from me directly. Yes it is true, that I was in rehab, however it was over 19 months ago, long before NEW MOON was even on my radar. It was a pivotal time in my life where I was lucky enough to have supportive friends and family to help me get healthy. I am grateful that I have been clean and sober now for 19 months and cannot imagine my life if I had continued using drugs and alcohol. Almost everything else that was written about this is blatantly false and we are exploring our legal options. That was my past, and I am thankful that I had the opportunity to create a new future for myself. I encourage anyone who is in a similar place to seek support from their friends and family and know that without them, I would not have had the chance to be where I am now.
The leader of the Quileute Nation in northwest Washington first began hearing her tribe had a role in the popular “Twilight Saga” from fans clamoring to know more about the place where a vampire tale of teenage love unfolds.
Some fans sent e-mails. The most dedicated among them made trips to the remote reservation that is home to the series’ heartthrob werewolf Jacob Black.
“The interest in our tribe was a surprise, a good surprise,” tribal Chairwoman Anna Rose Counsell-Geyer said. “I thought to myself, people are going to actually get to know the Quileute and we are going to be recognized as a people. The real Quileute.”
That was a couple of years ago. With “Eclipse,” the series’ third movie in theaters now, the 750-member Quileute Nation is reveling in the “Twilight” spotlight, attempting to capitalize on the blockbuster’s massive financial pull and welcoming new interest in the tribe’s culture.
At their Oceanside Resort, the tribe is opening a cabin decorated in a wolf theme, a shout out to Jacob and the Quileute’s own origin story, which begins with a transformation from wolves to people.
Spencer and co-stars Alex Meraz and Julia Jones play Quileute tribal werewolves who can phase between human and wolf form at will. Despite the supernatural context, the actors see the Quileute portrayal as a well-deserved modernization of American Indian imagery.
“What I like about it is it has brought us to pop culture in a way that’s never been done before in film,” said the Tahlequah, Okla.-born Spencer, who plays Sam Uley in “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” and has Nez Perce, Sioux and Creek ancestry.
“We’ve been around for a while. I’ve been working for, like, 10 years, and these two have also been around and working, and what I like about it is it’s finally brought us to a place where we’re not always playing with the leather and feather. That’s how we paid our dues,” Spencer said.
It’s old news that, for some crazy reason, the cast and crew of “Twilight” originally didn’t realize that the film would be a hit. Two sequels and over $1.1 billion worldwide later (with more sure to come with the release of“Eclipse”), it seems like the cast is still trying to maintain a back-up plan if acting doesn’t work out: music.
This week, we got word that newcomerBooBoo Stewart released a new single called “Rainy Day” on iTunes, and it got us thinking about all the other musically inclined stars of the film. They far outnumber the rest of the cast, it seems.
Oh, and if you’re wondering about that picture of Taylor Lautner to the right, we’ll get to that in a moment!
The most obvious examples are Robert Pattinson and Jackson Rathbone, both of whom are often found on the set singing and strumming some chords on their guitar. Rob famously had some of his music make its way onto the “Twilight” soundtrack, but seems to be on something of a music hiatus, so don’t expect him to be going on tour any time soon.
Jackson, on the other hand, is part of the group 100 Monkeys (that’s him on the far right) who just recently completed their fan-picked 100 City Tour. Though they haven’t had any songs make it to “The Twilight Saga” soundtracks, the last we heard they were going to be making the soundtrack for Jackson’s upcoming indie, “Girlfriend.”
Then there’s Anna Kendrick, who was a Tony-nominated Broadway performer before she kicked off her career in film with “Camp” and “Rocket Science.” Most recently — and comically — she showed off her singing abilities during a drunken karaoke session in “Up in the Air.” We love a girl who can laugh at herself, Anna.
Though they don’t sing off-screen (unless it’s alongside Joan Jett & The Blackhearts), Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning did sing their own tunes in their biopic, “The Runaways.” Singing someone else’s songs in someone else’s skin is a little different than being a musician in your own right, but we still count this as proof that Kristen and Dakota are musically inclined.
On to the lesser known musicians, Justin Chon (who plays Bella’s classmate, Eric Yorke) has his own band as well. Apparently he rocked out with Rob and the rest of the gang on “Twilight,” but didn’t get a chance to on “New Moon” because he only was on set for a week and a half.
That might have given Chaske Spencer and Tyson Houseman, two members of the wolf pack, a chance to show off their own musical talents with the rest of the bunch. Both list music as among their interests, and Chaske admits to playing the drums, though he finds musicians more intimidating than actors.
Newcomer Julia Jones might not be able to hold a tune herself, but shedid nab the leading lady role in country singer Chuck Wick’s titillatingmusic video for his song “Hold That Thought.” It gives her the chance to look a bit sexier than she will in “Eclipse,” though we already knew she could pull that off thanks to her red carpet looks.
Fortunately for all of us, Julia isn’t the only “Twilight” star to have starred as the romantic interest in a music video. That’s right: a much younger Taylor Lautner was the boy of Cassie Thomson’s dreams in her music video for “Caught Up In You.” We still haven’t decided if this tops his martial arts YouTube video.
But wait! Just when you didn’t think it could get any better, turns out Taylor must have loved the music video business so much he decided to go off and make his own! Lipsyncing to OneRepublic’s “Apologize,” Taylor apparently made the video for a school project. Pretty impressive work for someone his age, though we’re a little concerned about his choice in shorts and that random upside down phone.
