Knock Out Show Down: SK vs. SM

The other day, Crista, from The Snarky Sparrow, wrote an interesting piece on Stephen King, and more interestingly, his dislike of Stephenie Meyer.

This isn’t that shocking of a revelation, a good number of authors could criticize the lack of technical skill Meyer has.  What is shocking is an equally unimpressive and amateur writer by the name of J.K Rowling was given a warm welcome by Mr King.

“The real difference is that Jo Rowling is a terrific writer and Stephenie Meyer can’t write worth a darn” – Stephen King

Forgive me, if you will, but Meyer is on par with Rowling’s first 4 books.  And I would beg a critic to disagree.

I Love YouTube…

…because it allows me to feed my Twilight/Robert Pattinson addiction by watching unlimited amounts of movie clips, interviews, and then the always amusing fan made vids. I’ve seen some really amazing fan vids, and I admire someone who can spend that much time and effort on it. I have no such patience, so I think it’s incredible.

Some videos make me laugh. A LOT.

The girl above has made several Twilight videos, but this one is my favorite. It’s so ridiculous and over the top. My favorite part, ” I didn’t really find you hot as Cedric Diggory/but think you totally make a wonderful Edward C.”. My sister and I walked around for weeks saying, “Edward Cullen/get your pants off!”

And then there are the ones I watch over and over and over, because Rob looks really hot in them.

I found that one on accident when I was looking for a video for the song “Goodbye and Go” by Imogen Heap. I’ve watched it about 300 times (just kidding…kind of…) and LOVE the parts at :30, and 1:16. I swoon every time.

This next video was the first one I watched over and over, because it’s so true, I DID squee! This was the video that convinced me they love each other and totally should be together (until he meets me, then she would need to BACK OFF!). But the chemistry between these two is so obvious. Watching this, you understand why her boyfriend is jealous. Poor guy. How do you compete with that?

Are there any videos that you love or think are totally crazy? Do you make Twilight vids for YouTube? Let us know and I will post them here!

Seriously, WTF?

OK, so I realize that being 20 years old and and obessed as I am about Twilight makes me a little weird, but mostly only to those who haven’t read the books. I have a kindred feeling with all the other Twilighters out there who are just as fanatical as I am, and who can understand how seeing a silver Volvo (THE silver Volvo) is actually enough to change your mood for the entire day. 

But then there are those among us who are just frightening. They are the reason the rest of the world thinks we are CRAZY. And I really can’t blame them, because some of the shit I see out there in online Twilight universe  just boggles the mind.

For instance, today I was doing my daily check of Twilighers Anonymous and I came across this little gem.

Here are the pictures that go along with that article.

 

This is the womb closed (I think)

and this is it OPEN, complete with a FETUS inside

and this is it OPEN, complete with a FETUS inside

 That is Bella’s womb, when she was pregnant with Renesmee in Breaking Dawn. That is pretty much the grossest thing I have ever seen in my life. What would posses a person to create something like that? How long did that take? And then WHY did they feel they needed to take pictures and share it with the rest of the world? 

I can’t decide what the grossest thing about it is. The fact that it’s red and brown, with a little mutated fetus inside, or all of that combined with the fact that it’s FURRY? It looks like some crazy dinosaur egg or something from a horror movie.

If you have seen anything that tops this in the weirdness and grossness factor (and I really hope you haven’t), let us know, because I don’t understand what could top this.
