And the good Doctor did the animation as well (I seem to have him mentally slotted as a chip-tune artist.)

Wow, that is alot of work, and cool too, for such a shitty movie.

It's like all the time I put into my 'Federline Shrine'. It had a tall wooden back full of scrollwork and covered in goldleaf. Big ass candles, some incense and of course a big Kevin Federline poster in the center, surrounded by flowers, bread, fish, honey, tobacco, and whiskey. That was a hell of conversation starter, let me tell you.

to bad I suck at conversation

I got Bella and Jacob killed! How do I complete the other third of the game?

You certainly can't question his commitment to Sparkle vampires.

I heard Victoria's played by a new actress now.

Heh. My first time through I got exactly that result. And was perfectly content with it.

This latest round of hate on Twilight disturbs me, from a very personal viewpoint.

I enjoy all the jokes that tear apart such a glaringly vapid and bankrupt story. I chuckle. But after I have understood the jokes, I know the names of the characters and the major plot points of Twilight.

Are the chuckles worth that horror?

Yes, because the story is so fucking crazy that it's entertaining it it's own right. I'm glad I played this, if only for that.

This is cute, but I had to stop playing because I find the YouTube-as-game interface so infuriating. I actually clicked on the flashing "New Game" prompt in the first video and then it took me like ten seconds to realize that it wasn't loading a new video, I had in fact just paused it. That probably says more about me than the game, but it illustrates the limitations of the medium perfectly.

Wasn't the first YouTube-based game done as a sort of "This is funny because it's such an obviously bad idea" joke? It's just sad to see someone do 90% of the work required to make this a playable little flash (or Java or what have you) game and then just butcher it by putting it on YouTube.

Both my wife and I are waiting with unfettered glee to see how the hell they're going to film one particular scene in the last book. If you know anything about the last book you know exactly what scene I'm talking about.

If you don't... read the last paragraph of the Horrify the Twilight Noob section of Cleolinda's awesome Twilight non-fansite.

When you come back, I've got giant tubs of brain bleach I'm willing to share.

It is gone. Y'all done killed it!

This is exactly like finding out that I cannot steal a screwdriver.

Holy shit, kmz. Duly horrified.

Actually, I just realized that bit didn't even include the "best" part. This article spoils that as well as mentioning that apparently the movie will have all that scene off-screen. Booooooooooo.

Umm?

Aaaand we're back. Apparently Summit agreed it wasn't treading on their IP.

My thieving neighbor gave me my screwdriver back?
posted by zerobyproxy at 7:04 AM on July 2, 2010


Yes, ZBP, your screwdriver is safely returned, and barely molested.

Looks like it's gone again. :(
