So here's the deal: STY and I came up with a couple of questions for all you bloggers. If you're tagged, answer the questions and tag four other blogs. Don't forget to link back to the blog that tagged you! Let's see how many blogs we can get to participate and hopefully at the end of all this we'll know a lot more about each other. Believe it or not, we even made the questions 99% other-blog friendly! I don't think I said vagina or cock gobbling in a single question!
On your mark, get set, GO!!
1) What is the craziest/most stupid thing you've ever done (that you would be willing to share!)?
2) One my personal favorite games: Fuck, Marry, Kill. With the Twilight cast. I can't wait to read these! (Or "Eff, Marry, Kill" if you don't have my potty mouth.)**
3) What is your favorite band/type of music?
4) What is your favorite movie besides Twilight?
5) Do you RL life family/friends know you’re addicted to Twilight? A blogger?
6) How many hours a week do you spend doing Twi related things? You know, blogging, looking at pictures of the cast, reading fan fiction, etc.
7) Any random fact you might want to share. Big or small, it doesn't matter.
**Just encase you didn't know: Fuck, Marry, Kill Rules - Out of all the Twilight characters pick one character you want to fuck, one you would marry and one you would love to kill.
2) Eff, Marry, Kill: Eff- Emmett (cause yum body), Marry-Edward (if I'm married to him I can also eff him), Kill- Jessica Stanley (she's annoying so def kill her)
3)What is your favorite band/type of music? I don't really have a favorite band. I love too many groups and types of music but my favorites are Pop, Alt Rock, Country, Broadway, Classical, Swing/Big Band- even some Rap.
4) What is your favorite movie besides Twilight? Fav movie would be Gidget Goes Hawaiian.
5)Do you RL life family/friends know you’re addicted to Twilight? A blogger? Yes my RL fam/friends know all about my obsession and blogging habit. In fact you can see some comments by my friends and fam in the blog or on youtube. I am frequently told by my Aunt how much she loves our vids and wants us to do more. So I am completely out of the twi-closet.
6)How many hours a week do you spend doing Twi related things? You know, blogging, looking at pictures of the cast, reading fan fiction, etc. how many hours a week? tough- I guess i do at least an hour-2 each night when i get home from work, plus probably about 3-4 on my 2 days off so (someone do the math) uh (5x2=10+8=18?) i guess about 18 hrs a week on twi-bloggy stuff. But if you count how much I actually talk about it too to other ppl probably like 50hrs.
7) Any random fact you might want to share. Big or small, it doesn't matter. At one point I was having a reoccuring dream (really weird cause it didn't change at all) that I met Rob in a bar, proceeded to have crazy love-making with him, got pregnant (with Twins!), and proceeded to get engaged to him. I had this dream for like a month almost every night.*note from Susie* what Aimee failed to mention is that I was their nanny that lived across from them LOL
1)What is the craziest/most stupid thing you've ever done (that you would be willing to share!)?
My first couple years of college were the craziest time in my life. One particular night sticks out in my mind. It was the only time I ever got drunk off tequila. At one point I was on a table with my sorority sister Kristen wrapped up in a human pretzel grinding to "Pour Some Sugar On Me", I made out with a lot of strangers, and the end of the night ended with me and a different sorority sister topless laying on the carport singing "Blue Moon" up at the sky...good times
2)Fuck, Marry, Kill. Hmmm I would Fuck Edward(bitten pillows and feathers EVERYWHERE), marry Carlisle, and kill Jane
3)What is your favorite band/type of music? My favorite type of music is acoustic indie, mostly the Lilith Fair era especially(I love everything Sarah McLaughlin has ever created!) I like to feel mellow most of the time. When i'm feeling angsty I tend to listen to classic punk(Sex Pistols!!!)
4)What is your favorite movie besides Twilight? This is the hardest question for me because I'm a lover of movies(just ask Aimee) but If I had to absolutely pick then I would pick ummmmmm(damn this is hard) The Lost Boys. No matter what kind of day i'm having if I watch this movie I feel better
5) Do you RL life family/friends know you’re addicted to Twilight? A blogger?
Everyone in my RL knows. Mostly at work I avoid the subject because I just get the typical groans and my mom doesn't approve of my obsession(she's says its silly and childish...like I care!) but all my friends are FULLY aware
6) How many hours a week do you spend doing Twi related things? You know, blogging, looking at pictures of the cast, reading fan fiction, etc. ALOT I do Twilight stuff at both home and work. I talk Twilight all the time. I browse blogs, read/review fan fics, Twitwitter like mad so if I had to guess a weekly total I would say about 25-30 hrs a week...shit that's sad lol
7) Any random fact you might want to share. Big or small, it doesn't matter.
I have a severe case of Equestriphobia. If you don't know what that is...its the fear of horses. Yes I live in Kentucky(The Thoroughbred State) and I'm terrified. If you've ever seen the movie The Ring, I actually clapped and cheered when the horse had its little "accident" ummm yeah
So we know that majority of you have been tagged already and some of you we were going to tag but someone else beat us to the punch, but there are still a few that we have in mind so get to it ladies!!
Inappropriate Twilight Obsession
If you've been following our blog from the very beginning than you know that we originally started out with a channel on YouTube in which we expressed our Twiobsession via videos 5 days a week. Eventually we decided to branch out and launch our blog which has been much more successful! We do still make videos every now and again but the blog is much easier to handle. If you haven't watched our videos then I suggest you click on the smexy Rob picture and check them out!
Now that's out of the way...our challenge to you! We wanted to get back to our video roots soooo to win a Twilight TShirt of your choice courtesy of Cafe Press we want you to send us videos!
Here are the stipulations(what would life be without those)
1. They must be fan made! Because without the fans The Twilight Saga would not be what it is today!
2. They don't have to made by you! Now if you are talented and want to enter one you've made yourself than that is fine but we didn't want to discount the people that can't make videos so choosing your favorite fan video out of the millions that are out there works too!
3. The more creative the better! They can be music videos, tributes, spoofs, etc! There are tons of videos out there just waiting to be viewed and the best one out of the bunch will get the prize!
4. Anyone is eligible! That means you international readers can enter too!
Need an example? Go to this past post to see a good example Aimee's Rob Montage
**A Note About Spoilers**

The prize is your choice and how do you choose what shirt you want? Go to this link
Lets sum it all up for ya!
Down in the comments, leave a link to the video that you want to submit; also leave the link to the shirt that you want(include size and color) and don't forget to let us know if the video contains spoilers for Eclipse (or New Moon) so we'll know to be prepared(we want to try to keep our reclaimed "virginities" rintact)
And that's IT! We will close the contest on Saturday(October 31st) and post the winner next week!!!
Good Luck! Now let's see some videos!

I also saw this today over at Cullen Boys Anonymous:
Volvo has launched a new website called WhatDrivesEdward.com and they have a couple of contests going on. Right now you can enter to win 2 tickets to the world premiere of “New Moon” and starting Nov 1st you can play the What Drives Edward contest for a chance to win an XC60, Edward’s Volvo as seen in “New Moon”. Click here to get started.
So there's your news from today.
Why are we doing this you may ask? Are we just following a trend? Nope, although purity pledges seem to be gaining momentum (see the pretty pic on the right?), we decided to do this mostly because we want to be excited, the same level of excitement as when Twilight came out. For Twilight, we had seen the trailer and the posters and shirts and basically that was it- it was awesome because we watched it without knowing every little detail. And while we may not know every little detail about New Moon, what we do know is overload! Eclipse for us is gonna be a surprise. We're not gonna know how the hair and makeup look (although we already know that KStew's Wig is awful!) and we're not gonna try to find out. So- if you'd like to join us, please take the purity pledge with us! If you want to be an Eclipse Slut, then we will try to make sure your have at least links so you can find what you want. Soon i'm going to be trying to compile a basic list of those blogs/sites that are pure and will post it up so you guys know. *If you are one of those sites leave us a msg in the comments letting us know.

Track 1: "Meet Me On The Equinox" by Death Cab For Cutie
What Paramore did for the Twilight soundtrack DCFC will do for New Moon. Its modern and a catchy tune. I've listened to it multiple times already since it alone came out before the
soundtrack. So far its my fourth favorite song of the bunch *4 Apples*
*Aimee* Okay I like the song but well I liked Paramore's song better as relates to the movies/books. This is like the "front runner" but I think as more people get the soundtrack we'll see other songs being liked way better. Personally I'd give it 3 Apples.
Track 2: "Friends" by Band of Skulls
Its not the best song but its not the worst. I like the beat and lyrics are good. This will be one of those songs that I have listen to several times before I really start to like it. I felt this way when I first heard "Tremble For My Beloved" on the Twilight soundtrack but now I enjoy it so we'll see *3 Apples*
*Aimee* I love the beat for this and the tambourine. It kind of reminds me of a Target commercial song but I love it. I can't help but to dance to it- ultimate approval. I could see this in the movie during the birthday scene. I give this 4 Apples.
Track 3: "Hearing Damage" by Thom Yorke
I don't like this song at all. I figured there were going to be a couple I disliked but would learn to love(see track 2) but I can't see myself liking this one ever. Its got an annoying thrumming beat that gives me a little bit of a headache. I guess it will be ok for a background song in the movie but I hope its only for a few seconds and NOT a pivital part *1 Apple*
*Aimee* I don't care for this song much as well. Basically the only thing I really like is the "thrumming beat" that Susie finds so annoying. I also like the lead singer's voice. I'm thinking I will grow to like this more. I'd give it 2 Apples.
Track 4: "Possibility" by Lykke Li
*4 1/2 Apples*
*Aimee* I totally agree about Bjorkish feel. I love the lyrics. Personally this is my pick for the cliff diving scene. I have to give this 5 Apples.
Track 5: "A White Demon Love Song" by The Killers
I've never really been a fan of The Killers and while I don't hate this song (see track 3) I don't love it either. The lyrics fit New Moon and toward the end it hits a good rift that I enjoyed so more than likely the more I listen to it the better it will get *2 1/2 Apples*
*Aimee* I love the music and lyrics for this song- the lyrics especially. I'd give it 4 Apples.
Track 6: "Satellite Heart" by Anya Marina
*Aimee* I have to agree that this is one of the best songs on the whole cd. I love the lyrics- it's very end-of-relationship, post-break-upish. If I was going through the demolition of relationship I would listen to this song and feel better. I have to agree and give it 5 Apples.
*Aimee* Personally I believe this song will be the one that people go- Hey that's from New Moon! It is absolutely beautiful and the beat is amazing. This by far is my favorite from the soundtrack. I give it 5 Apples.
Track 8: "Rosyln" by Bon Iver and St. Vincent: It has a beautiful melody and good lyrics. I love acoustic music but they're helium type voices kind of take away from my enjoyment of the song. This one might take some listening to truly enjoy *1 1/2 Apples*
*Aimee* I absolutely love this song. It's very mellow and I love the music and the harmonies of the voices. I'd give it 4 Apples.
Track 9: "Done All Wrong" by Black Rebel Motorcycle Club
*Aimee* ok I don't really like the song all that well. The music is fine, the harmonica awesome, but not crazy for the lyrics. I'd give it 3 Apples.
Track 10: "Monsters" by Hurricane Bells
This song has more of an upbeat feel and I really like the contrast of depressing lyrics with happy music. Its not the worst song and I know I'll learn to enjoy it. *2 1/2 Apples*
*Aimee* I love the guitar on this. I find myself dancing to this in my car and that's always an indication of a good song. I give it 3 1/2 Apples.
Track 11: "The Violet Hour" by Sea Wolf
First off their band name is awesome! The song is very Bella/Jacob to me and its got this psychedelic Beatles feel to it that I really like *3 Apples*
*Aimee* I really like this song. I can't wait to see what scene it's used for. I agree with Susie 3 Apples.
Track 12: "Shooting The Moon" by Ok Go
Another nifty band name! Its got an acoustic feel but with synthesized moments that make the song catchy and interesting which I like and big props for use of drum, synthesizer(cause who does that anymore) and I love the big burst towards the end. It made me want to rock out.
*Aimee* I really like the drums. The lead singers voice is very soothing too. Please I think it's awesome that another band that was featured on Stephenie's Playlist (for Eclipse) got a space on the soundtrack. I'd give this 3 1/2 Apples.
Track 13: "Slow Life" by Grizzly Bear(with Victoria Legrand)
Okay seriously these band names are very TWILIGHT lol but anyways....This song is my guess for the cliff diving scene. Its very haunting like plenty of the songs on here but this one has a feel to it and when I close my eyes I can picture the cliff scene...i'm keeping my fingers crossed
*Aimee* I really like this song as well. It is also the song most likely to put me to sleep- why? I don't know. I guess I find it very relaxing on my ears and mind when I listen. I could see where Susie thinks it might be the cliff diving scene but I actually have a different guess. I'd give it 4 Apples.
Track 14: "No Sound But The Wind" by Editors
The singers voice is very old fashioned. I feel like I haven't heard that voice in a long time(cause I'm a fan of oldies) but the lyrics are very pretty and simplistic even if the song kinda sounds like a rejected David Hasselholf tune, I do like it. *3 Apples*
*Aimee* I'm very conflicted on this song, I like the music, the voice is slightly annoying to me but I really don't care for the lyrics. It annoys me so I give it 2 Apples.
Track 15: "New Moon(The Meadow)"
PERFECT! Each note screams New Moon and it jumps towards different emotional pockets. In some places its sad and longing others it hurtful and haunting. Desplat knew what he was doing. I honestly like this better than Carter Burwell's "Bella's Lullaby" I'll be listening to this one over and over *4 1/2 Apples*
*Aimee* I don't like it better than Bella's Lullaby but pretty much the same. It is a very good piece of instrumental work. I really do love this and it makes me look forward to the score for the movie. I give it 4 Apples.
Susie's Overall Opinion: The music on the New Moon Soundtrack fit the feel of the book. Plenty of acoustic and hauntingly depressing songs that get me in the mood to watch the film. I enjoyed more of the songs than I thought I would(lots of 3's) and this cd will definitely be in my favorites collection!
Overall Rating: 4 Apples
*Aimee's Overal Opinion: I think that the soundtrack helps portray that this movie has a more serious and depressing feeling than the last. I really only disliked a couple songs and I know that I'll come to love them the more that I listen to it. I have a feeling that some people won't like this soundtrack as well as Twilight because it is more mellow but personally very relaxing to me. Overall Rating: 4 1/2 Apples

And now there is even more controversy on the Robsten front because of the most beautiful picture outtake of them all!!
This is why I love this photo shoot so much. The cast doesn't have the worry lines under there eyes or the stress on there shoulders. They can be carefree and have fun. If these pictures can't convince you than CLICK HERE for the full Vanity Fair behind the scenes photo shoot video. I watched most of it and they have so much fun (all of them) together. So there's my lil soap box and show and tell session...Enjoy!!

You may be asking why all this is important, well I'm going to tell you.

For the full inside story please go to ROBsessed and read their post here. We are asking our readers to support the Twilight Blog Community and please do not buy the Robsessed DVD, as it would be encouraging them or others to do the same.

Also according to IMDB, Revolver Entertainment is listed as one of the distributors for Rob's The Haunted Airman, though only for the UK. US distribution will be done by E1 Entertainment. Also check out ROBsessed's update post here.
Now since that was pretty sad and kinda depressing I'm also going to put up what I like to call my Rob Montage. This is my first attempt at making a video like this so let me know what you think.

My Thoughts: Simple and that's what I like about it. Just the band and clips from the movie, plus the song is actually good. Enjoy!!!
*Aimee: That was awesome. I liked the scenes mixed in and they way it progressed, thought it fit the song well. For those who are trying to keep their purity the clips shown are basically the same as any of the trailers so you decide if you want to watch the video.

Also over at TwiCrack Addict today I saw that there are actually Twilight Pumpkin Carving Stencils available! How AWESOME is that?!? Here's what they look like.
I'm afraid to actually carve a pumpkin and leave it outside in my neighborhood but I might have to buy them and set up pumpkins in the house and hope the cats them them alone. Here's a link to purchase: click here.
On a personal note, I have been trying to stay away from Eclipse pictures, set news, etc- It's been hard going and no I'm not upset if I see something but lately I've been remembering (In all this lead up to New Moon) how much I didn't know about Twilight before it came out and how obsessed I got over the movie. I watched it over and over again at the theatre, i found online (yes illegal) copies online to watch every night for months after it came out. I bought all the merchandise I could lay my hands on in this podunk town- and I became a Twitard. Now with New Moon, I've seen a lot of information, clips, videos, and yes I loved watching the Trailers and video mashups and all that but I feel almost apathetic about the movie coming out. I'm hoping I get more excited the closer it comes out but I'm afraid that I've seen almost all of the movie in all the clips and pictures I've seen already. So with this feeling I have distanced myself from the Eclipse news- and let me say I'm so excited for Eclipse to come out already. I don't know what it's going to entail, I don't know how it's going to look (beside KStew's really bad wig, who could miss that picture?) and so I think I have found my passion again. I went to go see Fame this weekend and there was a New Moon trailer before the movie and yes I got excited because it was the first time I got to see the trailer on the big screen but oh boy I cannot wait until Eclipse. I feel almost like I did when I finished reading Twilight and had to wait to get my hands on the rest of the books- pure excitement and joy! Perhaps I have reclaimed my TV (Twilight Virginity) card but whatever it is I'm glad to have found it.

Melanie Stryder refuses to fade away.
Our world has been invaded by an unseen enemy. Humans become hosts for these invaders, their minds taken over while their bodies remain intact and continue their lives apparently unchanged. Most of humanity has succumbed.
When Melanie, one of the few remaining "wild" humans is captured, she is certain it is her end. Wanderer, the invading "soul" who has been given Melanie's body, was warned about the challenges of living inside a human: the overwhelming emotions, the glut of senses, the too vivid memories. But there was one difficulty Wanderer didn't expect: the former tenant of her body refusing to relinquish possession of her mind.
Wanderer probes Melanie's thoughts, hoping to discover the whereabouts of the remaining human resistance. Instead, Melanie fills Wanderer's mind with visions of the man Melanie loves—Jared, a human who still lives in hiding. Unable to separate herself from her body's desires, Wanderer begins to yearn for a man she has been tasked with exposing. When outside forces make Wanderer and Melanie unwilling allies, they set off on a dangerous and uncertain search for the man they both love.If you'd like to see the full announcement you can view it here.
Again I'm late with this story but congrats to Meyer's. Let's hope she publishes more awesome stories to come because let's face it.... she's on a roll.
