::Team New Moon:: More Easter Eggs in New Moon

From the "Twilight Tracker" app:

* On Bella's copy of Romeo & Juliet, a picture from Volterra covered the book.

* The camera drop during Paul and Jacob's in-transformation tussle was intentional to recreate the look of an actual animal knocking over the camera.

* In front of Emily's house, there was a drum actually given to the production crew by a member of the Quileute Nation.

* The opening of The Twilight Saga: New Moon with the moon phasing backwards was also intentional to reflect accuracy in phasing.

* Aro says "Fore ... ne il vostro l'uno o altro" to Bella in the Volturi lair, meaning "Perhaps ... nor yours either" (regarding whether he understands Edward's soul).


::Team New Moon:: Chris Weitz reveals a few hidden secrets in the movie.

1. Hidden wolves
”Look for an upside-down engraving of a wolf in the shot of the bowl in which Carlisle burns his first-aid equipment; on Jacob’s T-shirt when he meets Bella in the school parking lot for the first time; and a wolf trinket on the dream-catcher that he gives her.”

2. Vampire elevator music
”When Edward, Bella, and Alice get into the elevator on their way to see the Volturi, the music playing in the elevator is from Strauss’ Die Fledermaus (a.k.a. The Bat).”

3. Emotional baggage?
”When Bella is looking for the meadow where she and Edward are seen lying down together, she carries a golden compass clipped to her backpack — part of my baggage!”

4. Speedy suitor
”We did a little trick when Edward gets out of Bella’s truck and they’re arguing. We wanted to show Edward moving impossibly quickly, so we put Rob right next to the camera but out of sight, and used a double dressed like Rob in the driver’s seat. When Edward gets out, it’s the double, and then Rob steps in front of the camera, and it looks as if he got there faster than humanly possible.”

5. Look it up
”And last but not least: If you want to know what Jacob says before he almost kisses Bella, ask a Quileute! The address of the Quileute tribal council is I can tell you this much: He says, Kwop kilawtley.”

Art After 5 by sleepyvalentina

Rated: M
Type: General/Drama AH AU Canon Couples
POV: Bella
Status: Complete (57 ch)
Shack Rating: **** (4 Sparkles)

I want to warn everyone up front – this is a mature story dealing with very adult themes. There will be sex involving a person under the age of 18. If you are not able to deal with this, please do not read. I assure you, all parties involved are beyond the legal age of consent in the state in which the story takes place. Controversy can be exciting, but pedophilia is revolting.

Bella Swan had life figured out until she met sixteen-year-old Edward Cullen. A few months and an intense emotional connection later, she finds herself on a journey toward self acceptance while questioning everything she'd previously accepted as true.

::Team Edward:: Rob's People Mag scan.


::Team Carlisle: What if Carlisle met Coop?

The fact that Peter Facinelli portrays two very different medics in The Twilight Saga: New Moon (and The Twilight Saga: Eclipse) - Dr. Carlisle Cullen - and in Nurse Jackie - Dr. Fitch Cooper - is widely known.

One might've wondered, though, what it might look like for Carlisle and Coop to come face to face. If so, a recent interview that Twilight Lexicon did with Facinelli has brought out his opinion on the hypothetical encounter.

"Carlisle wouldn’t bite Cooper because he wouldn’t want him around for eternity," Facinelli joked. "Coop would be trying to be his friend all the time, and Carlisle would just avoid him like the plague. I don’t even know if Carlisle has the patience for Cooper ... [H]e’d be like, 'You wanna bite of my Twinkie? You need to get outside, man. You’re looking a little pale there.' Oh, it’s a blast because they are so different. One is so contained and one runs around like he’s just had six Red Bulls."

::Team Edward:: Rob sighting at Norm's Guitar shop.

Yesterday (Wednesday) at 2pm, Robert Pattinson popped in to Norm’s Rare Guitars in Tarzana by himself, no security, driving an inconspicuous vehicle, the staff seemed to be familiar with him, and they watched the door closely for cameras (none showed), and the few girls who were around naturally were foaming at the panties. He was very low key, he appeared healthy and well rested, and seemed quite specific about what he wanted, and relieved that he was able to shop undisturbed.

::Team Twilight:: Congrats to Kristen and Anna WTG Ladies!

::Team Edward:: His Holy Hotness coming to Vogue Mag in the spring.

From E! Online
We know where Robert Pattinson was today.

Across the street from our offices—at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art!

But he wasn't exactly checking out any exhibits…

Sources tell us that hottie R.Pattz and his stunning Remember Me costar Emilie de Ravin were there being photographed at the museum (aka LACMA) for Vogue magazine.

I'm told editors at the fashion bible are planning a multipage spread of the twosome for the mag's annual Power Issue that rolls off the presses just in time for Remember Me's March 12 release date.

"The theme is a date at LACMA," one source says.

Photographer Norman Jean Roy is said to have shot them in several spots throughout the museum, including interior and exterior setups. "It's kind of edgy in a Vogue way," the source says. "Emilie is wearing high fashion but it's like sort of tattered-looking. Rob is mainly in suits."

Pattinson arrived at about 9 a.m. before the museum opened. But it's not like art lovers—or Twihards—were going to get a good luck at him during the day anyway. Locations were blocked off with blue tarps and surrounded by security guards.

::Team Emmett::Kellan Lutz Calvin Klein's latest underwear model.

Fox411 Exclusive: Kellan Lutz is the new Marky Mark for Calvin Klein

Kellan Lutz has been hired to fill some very big underwear at Calvin Klein. has learned exclusively that the "New Moon" hunk has been signed to a modeling contract with the fashion giant, and will be featured in a very familiar ad campaign.

"He’s going to be their new Mark Wahlberg," the insider told "Kellan has been signed to Calvin Klein for a huge campaign that will feature him in his skivvies all over billboards and in magazines."

SLIDESHOW: Hollywood's Sexiest Six-Packs.

That’s right, 17 years later after his ripped abs ad campaign, Marky Mark finally has a worthy stomach-muscled successor.

“The executives have a plan to model the ads very similarly after the famous Mark Wahlberg campaign in the 90’s," the source said. "They want to recreate the look of the hugely successful ads, and who is better than Kellan Lutz to fill out those little underwear?”

Ahem. Moving right along...

The 1992 campaign was shot by the late legendary photographer Herb Ritts. No word yet on which lucky snapper will get close to Lutz’s vampire abs of steel.

Reps at Calvin Klein were not immediately available for comment.

::Team Edward:: Robert Pattinson fans continue to seek respect for the actor

When a man or woman signs their first major motion picture contract, they are in essence signing away a large portion of their former life. It's no secret that paparazzi lurk around every corner in Hollywood, and as such, most people expect celebs to be fully prepared to have all angles of their life exposed on camera each and every week.

Robert Pattinson's fans, however, are taking a stand against the paparazzi and issuing yet another call for more respect for their favorite Hollywood man.

This summer I wrote about Pattinson fansite's initiative to gain respect for Rob among all fans. In an effort to expand their horizons and reach out to a larger segment of the fan base, the site owners Angie and Karee recently re-launched the campaign.

With Rob doing some international filming for his upcoming roles in Bel Ami and Unbound Captives, the new and improved Respect Me campaign has a worldwide focus. The new Respect Me site is still a work in progress, but at this point in time fans can leave their comments about Rob and respecting him in the guest book, check out some fanmade media related to the campaign, and of course grab a 'Respect Me' banner or button for your website, blog, Facebook, or other website!

The re-launch of the Respect Me campaign happens to coincide with California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger's signing of a new piece of anti-paparazzi legislation. This new law not only goes after paparazzi photographers themselves, but also after the various media outlets that purchase the photographs. As of January 1, 2010, paparazzi in California will no longer be allowed to photograph celebrities in personal or family related activities. There is a fine of up to $50,000 for violations, and this extends to any media outlets that purchase photographs of this nature.

The questions now is will a law like this really help protect celebrities like Pattinson from having too much of their lives exposed (and, in some cases, their lives endangered) by the paparazzi? And is the law really going to be beneficial if it's only applicable in California borders?

What are your thoughts about the Respect Me campaign? The paparazzi? The new California law? Comment below with your feedback!
