The Twilight Impulse

My thoughts and impressions of the Twilight Saga, written by the fabulous Stephenie Meyer


Hey, I'm a massive Twilight Fan, and thanks to my friends being fed up with having to listern to my non-stop chattering about Twilight, i decided to create a blog for myself to just vent and document my twilight obsession!! I'm current studying journalism and have aspiration to become one, so why not write about something as awesome as the Twilight Saga!!

New Moon on 60 Minutes!!

OK, well the only reason i watched 60 minutes is because they had interviews with Robert, Kristen and Taylor. Pretty sad that 60 Minutes of all people, would score interviews with the cast. Anyways, i gotta say it was a VERY crap segment. I mean, really bad. It just looked like they had taken clips from Twilight, the premier, screaming fans and New moon released footage, that i have on my computer and put it together. I could have done that and created a better story. All they focused on was Robert and his "new found fame". Ummm, what?? Get with the program, last year Rob was dealing with his "new found fame", this is it isn't new. It's just the same of what they experienced last year. Obviously, someone has never heard of Robert, Kristen or Taylor before doing the story. Plus, with an elderly guy reporting, i doubt he knows ANYTHING at all about Twilight. Anyway, he said that the fame would "catapulting it's young English star". Umm, if i didn't know any better, i would think that Robert is the only person in the saga. I mean, essientially though-out the whole story, they just show Robert, and how famous he is, and just boring generic question's that all of the fans already know the answers to. Robert was asked what is his most crazy fan encounter, and obviously Robert told the one about those 3 girls who scratched their necks till they bled. Crap interviewer, just so you know. And, they totally neglected Kristen and Taylor. Ummm, hello?? Bella is the main protagonist for the entirety of the Twilight Saga, and Taylor plays a massive role in New Moon. It has been known to be called "Jacob's Book", by some people. Plus, he kept revering to Jacob as "the other guy". They only focused on Robert, as i'm sure he is the only one they have a slightt familiarity with. They only presented two small clips of Kristen, and one small one of Taylor. Also, they got Taylor's name wrong. Come on!!! They can't even get one of the casts name right!! Seriously?? They could have gone to Wikipedia, even they have their information correct. Jeez, some people need to check their sources!!! They called Taylor, "Jacob Lautner". I mean, that is so insulting. They didn't take the story seriously enough to even check whether they had their names right. Poor Taylor. He hardly got any publicity in the first Twilight film. Now, even after becoming more well known, people still get his name wrong. Apart from being totally ignored along with Kristen, Robert was the only thing that they seemed concerned with. In the introduction, and for the first 7 or 8 minutes of a 10 minute segment, there was no mention of Kristen or Taylor. It was painfully evident that they didn't have much of an idea of what they were actually talking about, and they were just using Twilight's fame, to get ratings. They actually thought that vampires "ate in the cafeteria", but Robert quickly corrected him that they don't eat human food. Umm, 60 minutes!! Piss off, research your information once in a while, then maybe you won't have to make so many public apologies when they are being sued all the time or just annoying many viewers. Spitting image of Today Tonight and ACA . Epic failure of a story. Nice try, but it was just bad!!
