Twilight Soundtrack

The Twilight soundtrack was released to stores today. After I went to vote for Bob Barr, I drove myself to Best Buy–right now driving is a little dangerous since my van is all sputtery for some reason–and picked it up. I already knew the titles on the album, and had heard a few of the cuts already. Perry Farrell’s “Go All the Way (Into the Twilight)” and Paramore’s “Decode” had been on the movie site for a while. I was most interested in two songs: Rob Pattinson’s original composition, “Don’t Think,” and the Carter Burwell composition “Bella’s Lullaby.” Wow–no disappointment there. I am quite touched and impressed by both pieces.

Each CD comes with a poster on the reverse of the liner notes. Mine is James. Eh. I am interested in how his character comes out in the movie, though.

So I have read Twilight about 11 times now, not to mention the other three in the series. I have my movie ticket, my movie friends to see the movie with, and my soundtrack. Plus an unhealthy obsession with the band Muse, which would have happened eventually given how much I love Radiohead and Arcade Fire.

Now I can no longer ignore the mess of my house. I am also knee deep in NaNoWriMo, and finding myself equally disturbed and intrigued by these characters that are coming out on the screen. My biggest setback right now is my urge to edit while I’m writing. Trying to remember that it’s a draft, the first of probably ten or twelve or something, is hard.

Hope you voted!

I just bought my tickets for the midnight showing of Twilight on Thursday, November 20. I can hardly contain my excitement. I just checked myself in the mirror and my eyes are all wild. Okay, okay, that’s because I started back on the Focalin. Still. I am giddy. I called my friend Melissa and told her I was getting our tickets. Woo hoo. Got tickets to Twilight. Hopefully there will be no teenagers there that night, since it’s a school night.

I am sure I’ll be high the whole day waiting for it. And then, within two hours, it will all be over. Kind of like the Morrissey concert, though that does live forever in my heart. And I can get the Twilight DVD.

Also, November is National Novel Writing Month. Join the challenge if you’re not a chicken.
