I've always been interested in Japan, anime, and manga type stuff. So naturally I was curious about how popular Twilight was in Japan. I already knew that the books were released in Japan with manga style illustrations in them, but how popular were they? I ended up finding a Japanese launch site for Eclipse film as well as a community site which is linked to the launch site. Apparently the Eclipse film was just released in Japan on 11/6. The community site also seemed pretty active from what I saw, so I'll assume that Twilight is rather popular in Japan. Here's a link to the Japanese Twilight Saga site and a video I thought was pretty cool. The site's not that hard to navigate. Just click stuff. :PRead more >
I'm not sure if people already know this, but I've yet to tell my friends that I like Twilight. When it comes to Twilight, I'm pretty damn embarrassed. I've never bought any of the books or DVDs because I'm to embarrassed to go into a store and even pick them up. The most daring thing I've done was buy 5 buttons at a convention. 2 of the buttons were Twilight related, one said "Team Jacob" the other "Team Anti Bella". And of course, I'd never wear those buttons in public (It especially doesn't help that the Team Jacob one has a heart on it. Ugh.).
Thing is, I really want to just get this whole liking of Twilight off my chest. I don't like being sneaky and hiding it from people. I don't like not being able to check out the latest goings on b…Read more >
First subject: For some reason, I'm not getting notified of changes to the Wiki like I use to. Before, I'd check my email and find that I have like 15 new messages telling me that the Jacob page has been changed or the Bella page has new comments. But now I only get like 2 messages. It's weird because I go to the recent activity page and find that those pages DID get edited. So how come I wasn't notified?

Second subject: You know, before Twilight became so popular, nobody really cared about vampires. If I were to think of a monster, I'd think of a zombie or a ghost or something. Now that Twilight is so insanely popular, I'm seeing vampire related stuff EVERYWHERE. Werewolves too (not as much but still). Now it's like vampires are the first…
This didn't surprise me too much at first. In the book, all the times Edward and Bella were about to do it, the book would just skip to afterward. I mean, I didn't want to read about them having sex in extreme detail or anything, but skipping the whole thing is pretty lame. So I assumed that the article I read meant that the movie would actually show all the times they had sex, but that's not what they meant. Apparently Edward and Bella aren't the only couples who'll be having sex in the movie.
Who else is there? Seriously. They were the only couple who even had the time to "get it on" in the book. No one else did. How the heck is the movie gonna pull that off? I was already not looking forward to watching Edward and Bella have…Read more >
So Jacob described vampires as smelling sickeningly sweet, but what does that smell like? Here's my guess: I think that vampires smell like a mixture of bleach and pancakes, pancakes drenched in syrup that have been sitting out for days or maybe weeks. Or maybe just syrup that's severely pasted it's expiration date. That mixed with the stinging smell of bleach would definitely burn a werewolf's nose.Read more >
