Local band scores hit with ‘Twilight’ music video
It’s likely that Brooke Seely had no idea what she would inspire when she got in line for the latest “Twilight” movie.
Her mother, Robin Vaughn, says Brooke was the first in line for the local premier of “The Twilight Saga: New Moon.” Brooke’s husband, Mike Seely, says it was that simple act of standing in line all day for a movie that inspired a song and music video that has garnered more than 260,000 views on YouTube in less than three weeks: “Twilight (What Have You Done to My Wife?).”
Performed by Mike’s band, Shallow Day, the song has become an Internet sensation as both “Twilight” fans and haters e-mail links to the YouTube video and post it on their Facebook pages.
Drummer Wes Vaughn, Brooke’s brother, says it’s “weird” to see his band with the 11th most-viewed music video in Sweden. It has also seen significant views in places as diverse as India and Australia since it went viral. MORE HERE
Robert Pattinson Reveals Breaking Dawn a Logistical Challenge
Although Twilight and New Moon fans of Robert Pattinson are eagerly awaiting The Twilight Saga Eclipse before Breaking Dawn, much Twilight talk has centered around the final Twilight Saga movie, Breaking Dawn, well before the Stephenie Meyer penned franchise winds down. Twilight and New Moon star Robert Pattinson recently spoke of Breaking Dawn and shared his hopes for the last Twilight movie, or “movies”, as some believe.
According to MTV UK, New Moon actor Robert Pattinson is in the dark about Breaking Dawn just like fans, which also includes Twilight Saga co-stars Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner. In “recent interviews”, as quoted by MTV, Robert Pattinson is obviously looking forward to Breaking Dawn for logistical reasons. “It will be strange,” admitted Pattinson, “but it will be great just to be able to know what I’m doing. Not knowing when Breaking Dawn is going to shoot- because it changes all the time- is a kind of burden, to have this thing where you don’t know when it’s going to happen.”
Ahead of Breaking Dawn, Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner have kept themselves busy beyond The Twilight Saga with other roles. But Robert Pattinson also revealed that with Breaking Dawn up in the air, it’s hard to schedule around the final Twilight Saga film when no one knows the status of Breaking Dawn. “So you’ve got to organize everything in your life around that and that can be difficult.

‘Twilight’ Fanatics Gather At SF Convention
The unprecedented success of both the Twilight novels by Stephenie Meyer and the first two feature films in the ‘Twilight Saga’ have created a worldwide following of passionate fans who are already eagerly awaiting the release of ‘The Twilight Saga: Eclipse,’ the third movie in the series (and second ‘Twilight’ film set to hit theaters in less than a year) coming out in late June of 2010.
While ‘Twilight’ has definitely made its presence felt at such comics and science fiction/fantasy conventions as San Francisco’s annual Wonder Con and Comic-Con in San Diego, but this weekend the San Francisco Airport Hyatt Regency welcomes the second annual Bay Area Twilight Fan Convention for three days of on-stage appearances by ‘Twilight’ celebrities, exclusive footage screenings, panel discussions, ‘Twilight’ themed parties, musical performances, costume and trivia competitions, and much more.
‘Twilight’ cast members making appearances include Peter Facinelli (Dr. Carlisle Cullen), Daniel Cudmore (Felix), Charlie Bewley (Volturi Tracker Demetri), Gil Birmingham (Billy Black) and the entire Wolf Pack of Alex Meraz (Paul), Chaske Spencer (Sam Uley), Kiowa Gordon (Embry Call) and Bronson Pelletier. Though meet-and-greet, photo and autograph sessions with the actors will cost attendees additional fees besides their general admission tickets, many of the fanatical fans will be happy to pay extra for the privilege of meeting stars from their favorite films.
Other spotlight attractions during the three-day ‘Twilight’ celebration include a Friday night concert featuring Goodnight Juliet (whose song “Let’s Never Die” was inspired by the Twilight Saga) and Reggie Ginn, the centerpiece Volturi Vampire Ball on Saturday night and screenings and panel discussions with comedy troupe The Hillywood Show and it’s hit ‘New Moon’ parody.
