The New Moon Soundtrack, preview and speculation

NMsoundtrackcoverDear LTT-ers and music nerds alike,

Yesteryday’s the day I had been waiting for with baited breath… the Soundtrack track listing for New Moon was released. Would Alexandra Patsavas, Chris Weitz and team knock New Moon’s soundtrack out of the park this time? Would they avoid the pitfalls of the Twilight soundtrack? Mainly the inclusion of shiz like Collective Soul and Perry Ferrell? Well we still have a little bit longer to find out since the soundtrack itself isn’t released till October 20th and the ultimate test: the movie isn’t released till November 20th, but for now we have a track listing that looks SOLID. And like any good music nerd, I’m here to break it down for you, introduce some of these artists and also learn a bit about the ones I’m not familiar with.

Hold on tight you little creep!

Hold on tight you little creep!

As explained on Stephenie Meyer’s website as well as the super awesome New Moon Soundtrack site “…all of the music is original, and exclusive to the soundtrack.” Though I have to point out that Muse song was released on their latest album The Resistance, but according to them they were asked by Chris Weitz to cut a different version of the song. All that to say not only is it exciting that we’ll be hearing all (almost) new music but how telling is it that this saga can get TOP artists like Thom freaking York to cut all new music for it?! That’s called pull and this saga’s got it.

Anyway, on to the track listing…


I really love the line “Oh darling understand, that everything ends…” which works so well with the themes of New Moon. Bella learns that nothing is forever and that as much as she thought she’d be with Edward forever, it wasn’t meant to be. Little does she know! I can almost seeing this being a song from Jacob’s perspective, not only did we learn Chris Walla is SO Team Jacob the lyrics have so much longing, so much want. Wanting to be that person for her but needing her to meet him halfway. Hmmm love to ponder the lyrics, my friends!

Get your coffee and follow the cut as we jump into the rest of the tracklisting…

MTV Music Video Awards! New Moon Trailer, Music Video, Cast Galore! Oh MY!

mtvmovieawardsHey LTT-ers!

Today’s the day for the MTV Music Video awards aka the day we get to see the trailer (a higher quality version at least), see some Twilight star action and of course the music video for Meet Me on the Equinox by Death Cab for Cutie! It’s an action packed day to say the least. Though some/most of you might after already seen the trailer by now that was leaked online, I am taking one for the team because I have agreed to record myself and my viewing parties reaction to the trailer ON VIDEO. Yea, I might totes embarrass myself but hey, that’s normal right? So I’m prepping my vocal chords for my best fangirl sqee’s, microwaving some carrots for hor’dourves and ironing my Pattinson Pants to prepare for tonight’s festivities.

Don't trip yall! I mean Kristen!

Don't trip yall! I mean Kristen!

Since I’ve vowed to remain a pure virgin (that’s what Rob likes) until the big moment to preserve my honest reaction I’ve stayed away from the interwebs since Friday except to write this blog post and created my purity my own personal purity campaign: “Worth the Way 09.” And since the temptation is so strong I’ve even had a sponsor to help me stay on track since UC is away on a mini weekend vacay. Kristin (rockin’ forum mod) has talked me down from several ledges in my quest to stay pure. Everytime I’d get the itch or I just happen to be getting on my computer to “check my email” she’d text out of the blue to ask me what I was up to or to tell me Rob didn’t like it when I lied. It’s like SHE KNEW! I was just a junky looking to hide my attempts at getting my hit. It was like my other personal episode of Intervention. Only I’m addicted to Vampires and a boy named Rob and a book written for teens and not the bad stuff. Buuutttt here we are, we’re finally to Sunday and it’s t-minus a few hours until I can finally see what we’ve all be waiting for: shirtless Rob The New Moon Trailer!!!!!

What I’m looking forward to:

  • Death Cab music video
  • Ashley as the fashion correspondent on the red carpet. Can we just imagine for 2 seconds how she’s going to lie when she asks Rob/KStew who they’re wearing and then tells them they look great
  • Seeing whether Rob steals his shirt from David Slade or the hotel bel hop
  • Double checking that the front doors and windows are locked for when Taylor presents. I don’t need Chris Hansen sneeking in
  • Will Kstew, trip, fall or otherwise make out entire evenings?
  • The trailer (uh, duh)

(yup, this is it if you haven’t seen it yet)

So what are you looking forward to? And won’t you join us as I live Tweet the awards from the West Coast starting at 830ishPST. Will I pass out? Will Rob revive me with only his gaze through the TV screen? How many cupcakes will I shove in my mouth? Only time will tell!

Quickly leaving the interwebs to call my sponsor!


Follow us on Twitter and endure my live tweeting!

Prepare yoself for the awards and chat it up while the awards air in the Forum!

Letters to Twilight in 10 words or less

Dear LTT-ers,

Just the other day I was talking to UC about how I wished I could just post two word letters or even three (go for the gold Moon!) because sometimes less is more especially when you see shiz like this:

Rob and Kristen spotted shopping in VINTAGE store

Rob and Kristen spotted shopping in VINTAGE store

Dear Rob and Kristen,

Be less predictable.

Love your pal,

So I decided to summarize the following Twi-news, pictures and what have you in 10 words of less… can I do it and still be semi funny? Will you love me when I fail miserably?

Let’s see shall we?

Your faithful servant,

Take the cut to see if I can do it!
