Chelsea Dagger

So, since filming is close to finished in Vancouver for New Moon, I'm going to share with you the top 10 things that better be brought from the move to the book in top form (ie, no copping out like the meadow scene). I'll report back :)

1. The fountain-run-as-fast-as-you-can-save-Edward sequence. The second she runs in to him, "We're not dead, not yet! But we have to get out of here before the Voltouri----"
2. That palpable moment where she almost kisses Jacob. The hug, then tension, ALL OF IT!
3. October, November, December and January
4. The break-up scene "you don't want me?"
5. After Bella wakes up from her little trip to Volterra....the whole thing would be fine with me "I’m dead, right? I did drown. Crap, crap, crap! This is gonna kill Charlie.” and As far as dilusions went, this one was pretty good.
6. Bella explaining the voices to Edward "Hold on a second. I think I’m having an epiphany here."
7. Alice and Charlie in the kitchen after Alice re-appears.
8. Jacob's "At the funeral." line
9. Alice. And the 911 Yellow Porche Turbo. "Bella, how strongly are you opposed to grand theft auto?"
10. The first motorcycle/voice hearing experience

I'm also not opposed to Edward having his shirt off the entire time they're underground in Volterra, which is how it was in the book. And I'm kind of excited for Alice's line "I think she's having hysterics, maybe you should slap her." And how they're going to demonstrate the fact that she won't fall asleep from Italy to Seattle. And Edward breaking the TV while they're voting. In short, I'd like to see whole thing :)

Tripping Billies

There really aren't many words needed for this post. Here's why:

Long time no blog. Why, you wonder? I went to Vegas two weekends ago. The night before I left for Vegas, my computer decided to die. But now I'm back in business. And I'm here to tell you a super fun story.

So last night, my friend and I were going to see Bobby Long @ Arlene's Grocery. If you do a little research, you'll quickly find out why. We met @ our normal Borders Penn Plaza to exchange books, b/c she's reading some of the ones I have. So I get there a little early, and hear a scalper "Dave Tickets." JP's concert ears perk up, and I think oh, dave?! I've never seen dave!! Maybe someone will give us tix for free!! So I go and listen to my podcast and wait on my friend. She arrives a few minutes later, and we're both at the same time "So do you want to see if there are any tix for Dave tonight?." So naturally, we walk a whole 10 feet to Madison Square Garden and see that there are tix, but people have mysterious cards when buying the tickets. We fumble around for 20 minutes, then find teh magical ticket line. There are about 20 people in front of us. We decide we may as well get in line, forget Bobby Long, if we don't get DMB tix, we'll just go down the street and eat at a killer macaroni and cheese joint.

We get in teh line and moves a quickly, then we get stuck with seven people in front of us. We stand for about an hour and a half. The line barely moves. Then we see the line controler talking on his phone. He gave away five tickets. This brings us within three of the magical card to get us tickets. About five minutes later, we manage to get a ticket in our hand, go buy tickets, and end up having the second to last row in teh first section of the FLOOR!!!! Holy cow. We were shocked. There may have been some squeeing and jumping up and down.

Our seats were stellar. I'd never seen DMB. And we didn't even know he was playing in town 6 hours before. Turns out we'd landed floor seats to the first show of the DMB tour the day their brand new CD came out in Madison Square freakin Garden. And they played TWO STEP! AKA the song I've been dying to hear live......
