Twilight Saga Among Most Challenged Books

Posted in Breaking Dawn, Eclipse, New Moon, twilight with tags on April 15, 2010 by chasingcullens


Stephenie Meyer’s “Twilight” series is a worldwide phenomenon, with millions of copies in print, two hit movie adaptations, at least two more on the way, and merchandise ranging from T-shirts to body pillows.

Apparently some people aren’t too happy about all that.

The “Twilight” series made the American Library Association’s list of the most frequently challenged books of 2009. The group tracks formal complaints filed against libraries and schools from people who, for whatever reason, want a book removed from shelves. Despite its reputation as a relatively chaste human-vampire romance, the series has drawn complaints for being “sexually explicit” and “unsuited to age group.”

On the other hand, it also drew challenges for its “religious viewpoint.” So which is it, stiflers of free expression?

No. 1 on the library association’s 2009 list is the “IM” series by Lauren Myracle — books written as a series of instant-message conversations between three teenage friends and involve sex and drugs as well as the usual high-school drama. “And Tango Makes Three,” a children’s book about two male penguins who are given an egg to care for — and which is based on a true story of two penguins at the Central Park Zoo in New York — is No. 2.

Classics like “Catcher in the Rye,” “To Kill a Mockingbird” and “The Color Purple” are also on the hit list.

Kristen + Rob

There’s no cutest movie couple countdown without a spot for KStew and RPattz. Do we have to spell it out at this point? They convinced us once in Twilight, they made it even more clear in New Moon and judging by the Eclipse trailers, they’re about to hit us over the head again with the fact that these two are made for each other. No protests over here! We could gaze into Edward’s eyes from Bella’s point of view every day for the rest of our lives!

Oprah Looking For Twi Hards!

The Twilight phenomenon has come to the attention of the world’s leading cultural guru, Oprah Winfrey. Although she has no interest in publicity herself, she is anxious to explore the roots of this “Twilight” addition, and has announced a casting call for a show featuring the diehards who follow the “Twilight” saga, the books, the movies and of course, stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart.

So, if the words “New Moon,” “Eclipse,” “Breaking Dawn” or just “RPatz” have a special meaning for you, like the meaning a life-presever has to a drowning man, then Oprah wants to hear from you. She promises you a chance to have your say, and hints that there could possibly be some members of the “Twilight” cast on that very same show. OMG!

You’ll have to write a 2,000-character note to Oprah about how “Twilight” has affected you or your family, and you must be willing to appear on “The Oprah Winfrey Show.”

So, my fellow fanatics, go to her “Oprah Winfrey Show Twilight Fan Search” web page and start writing.


Tyson Houseman Talks Twilight

Posted in Eclipse, New Moon, stephenie meyer, twilight, vampire, Wolf Pack with tags on April 7, 2010 by chasingcullens

The Film Yap has a brand new interview with the very lovely Tyson Houseman, who plays fan favorite Quil Ateara in The Twilight Saga film franchise. In the new interview, Tyson talks about his audition process for New Moon, his recent experiences with Twilight fans, and much more. Check it all out below:

The Yap: Great, thanks. So how did you get connected with the whole “Twilight” phenomenon?TH: Well, “New Moon” was the first movie I’ve done, and it was the first audition I’d even ever been to. I remember I got the part, I was looking on the internet for a job on Craigslist, and I found this job that said there was an open casting call, and it didn’t even said for “Twilight,” it just said “a major motion picture,” for a Native American, age 15-25. I thought “I fit that description, so I’ll check it out.” So I went down there, and that’s when I first realized it was for “Twilight,” because there was a lineup from theopen casting call like 4 or 5 blocks long, and it was just filled with “Twilight” fans with books and t-shirts and everything, and I thought, “yep, this is probably one of the ”Twilight” films. I didn’t really expect to get anything out of it, but I went and stayed at the audition all day long, and there was only like 5 of us left, and they filmed me at the end of the day doing a scene. The next week they told me I got a callback, and I went and I did the callback, and a week later they called me and said I got the part.

The Yap: So you were batting 1.000 right out of the gate. Quite an accomplishment. You have a theater background, right?

TH: Uh, yeah. It was really just like school plays and stuff like that, though.

The Yap: Wow, so they really did just grab you out of nowhere. Have you had any difficulty adjusting to this sudden fame? You’re not exactly doing an intependent film to start off, you’re jumping right into the mania of this franchise.

TH: Not really. It was kind of a lot to handle at first. You’re right, it’s this big phenomenon thing, and it was hard for me to deal with it. I just had to tell myself, yeah, this is just crazy, but I’m still like the exact same person I was a year ago. I’m stillTyson , and it’s not really changing me personally in any way. I’m staying true to myself and staying grounded. But other than that it’s been really great, just meeting a lot of really cool people. All the fans are just so great and passionate about it.

Team Jacob Triumphs!

Posted in Awards/Events, New Moon with tags on March 29, 2010 by chasingcullens

Once again, the kids have spoken, and you might be surprised at some of what they had to say.

The 23rd annual Kids’ Choice Awards took place on Saturday at UCLA’s Pauley Pavilion in Los Angeles, delivering more than its share of upsets. Fearless songbird Taylor Swift continued her recent absolute domination of awards shows by picking up Favorite Female Singer award and Favorite Song award for “You Belong With Me,” in an evening that was otherwise marked by eyebrow-raising choices. Bella and Jacob over Bella and Edward for Favorite Cutest Couple? iCarly over Wizards of Waverly Place? Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakuel over New Moon? Miley Cyrus as Favorite Movie Actress?

Check out the big winners from last night’s Kids’ Choice Awards below (for a full list of winners, click here).
