Robert Pattinson loves his busy Twilight life

Robert Pattinson has confessed that he loves the hectic schedule he has when he’s filming for the Twilight films.

The actor said his busy work life made a nice change from all the years when he only had one or two jobs a year.

Robert said, “I just want to work as much as I am now. I like working all the time because I spent so many years before Twilight just doing stuff for two or three months of the year. The rest of the time I’d do nothing, or I’d just have tiny little jobs.”

As much as he welcomes the steady work, Rob says he won’t be sorry when the fame dies down after the films finish.

He said, “I find periods to escape from it and places to get away to as much as possible. I try and tell myself that it’s just a job and that all this craziness won’t last forever.


‘The Twilight Saga: Eclipse’ nears a half billion in sales, mentioned in early Oscar discussions

The latest box office figures for the film point to a worldwide total of $456 million so far, resulting from a $237 million domestic gross and a successful $81.1 million on the international front this weekend (adding up to $219 million so far, internationally).

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse has also been a part of a recent Variety discussion on early Academy Awards predictions. The publication suggested that Eclipse‘s music was one of a few “strong contributions” in the category of music, opening up the possibility that The Twilight Saga: Eclipse could be in the Oscar pool (as was The Twilight Saga: New Moon with Lykke Li’s “Possibility”). Though, Variety also suggests that “popular” songs are not the type of material considered by the Academy.


Designer applies her talents to vampire game

Alifelong Rogue Valley resident and mother of three has created an iPhone application — called an “app” — that she designed specifically for “Twilight” fans.

Independent game designer Sophie “Rosie” Roberson, 32, of Central Point, used art and computer experience — with the help of software she downloaded onto her iPad — to draw the illustrations for her new app, “Vampire Oracle.”

The app came out July 1, in tune with the release of the third movie of the Twilight saga, “Eclipse.” The software can be used on Apple’s iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

“The reason I originally did this was because I was asked to create the ‘Twilight Oracle’ for a company,” Roberson said, referring to a game geared especially for the “Twilight” audience. “They didn’t go forward with the idea.”

“Vampire Oracle” consists of 32 cards with a book of associated meanings. The cards represent attributes, emotions and experiences of well known vampires, used to encourage thought and provide guidance in making decisions. They’re similar to Tarot cards, which have been used by mystics since the 18th century.

‘The Twilight Saga: Eclipse: The Official Illustrated Movie Companion’ becomes best-seller

Mark Cotta Vaz’s The Twilight Saga: Eclipse: The Official Illustrated Movie Companion has finally hit USA Today’s Bestseller book list, landing in eleventh place.

The companion, a book filled with interviews, articles, and photographs from The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, rests just below Stephenie Meyer’s Eclipse on the list.

Meanwhile, Stephenie Meyer’s The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner: An Eclipse Novella is hanging tough on the list in second place, having been on the list for three weeks.


Wow, it’s amazing that Taylor has so many nominations! He has really put so much hard work the past few years, and I really liked how Eclipse turned out. In my opinion, David Slade did a good job combining the fight scenes and romance. The music was amazing, the score complemented the scenes really well and the soundtrack had great new bands, that I hadn’t heard before.

Do you think the Twilight Saga: Eclipse score has a chance for the Oscar?
