Dr. Cullen Goes Green!

"The wasting of finite resources is everyone's business."

It seems Peter Facinelli agrees with Edward. He just purchased a Tesla S, the fine specimen of a car shown to the right. All-electric, lots of cargo and passenger space, it's perfect for our favorite vampire dad and his real-life family. Yours for the bargain price of about $50,000.

The bad news is he has to wait until 2011 to pick this baby up, so he's spent some time at Twi-Con Dallas practicing green transportation. Looks like a wild ride! "Whoa! Whoaaaa!"



Thanks to Twilight Lexicon for the heads up and the video link!

Fansite Fridays Begin: Twilight Fansites Report From the Set of New Moon! (minor spoiler ahead)

Amber reported today at t5m that several popular Twilight fansites were invited to the set of New Moon to observe a bit of the filming process. His Golden Eyes, Twilight Source, Twilighters Anonymous, Twilight Moms, Twilight Series Theories, and Twilight Lexicon will be reporting on their experience starting today!

Our lucky blogger friends were able to speak with Chris Weitz, Wyck Godfrey, Chaske Spencer and a few others while on set. They were also treated to watching a scene being filmed at the Bella and Charlie's house location. Hint: half-naked Chaske Spencer and an emotional Billy Burke, along with a good chunk of the Quileute population.

Stay tuned every Friday for updates on their set visits!

Jodelle Ferland Joins Eclipse Cast


Don't let her young age fool you, at 14 she has an impressive list of acting experience. She began acting as young as 5, including a recurring role in Kingdom Hospital, as well as Silent Hill and The Messengers (with our own Kristen Stewart!) Now she joins the Eclipse cast as...a "vampire who has just been turned", according to Entertainment Weekly. Speculation is that it's Bree, a newborn in Victoria's army, but no direct confirmation of that, even from Jodelle's twitter. When I find some more info, I'll keep you updated.

You can take a look at her impressive resume here, and be sure to follow her on Twitter @jodellemicah.

So, welcome Jodelle! Welcome to our beloved series, welcome to the craziness. Don't be too surprised that your Twitter counter is exploding with followers, we're a devoted lot. Have fun filming and we'll see you in June 2010!

P.S. Oh! Thanks for being my first post on Eyes of Amber!

Please Welcome Kerry!

It has finally happened, I have admitted that I am not one of the vampires we all love so well with all their special powers and abilities. I need trivial little things like sleep. I also want to make sure that Eyes of Amber stays up-to-date and on top of all things Twilight. So, it is in the best interest of everyone that I introduce to you a new member of the Eyes of Amber family...

Kerry is relatively new to Twilight, but what she lacks in "longevity" she "makes up for in enthusiasm." Like myself and a lot of my readers, Kerry is a mom with two active little boys. She fell in love with the books and read the entire series in a week. She is also married to one of those ever illusive unicorns. In fact, he read the books before she did!

Please join me in giving a very warm welcome to Kerry. I am very grateful for the help. You can find her on twitter @pinkpixiechick. Be sure to follow her as well so you don't miss a single update!

Rob My World's Brit Pack Review

For those of us who were not fortunate enough to see Sam Bradley, Bobby Long or Marcus Foster over the weekend in Dallas, Rob My World has been kind enough to share with us her experiences. I'm only going to share a tiny bit here, just this gorgeous pic of Sam performing, taken by @myria101 and this video from @garnetgurl of Marcus and Sam doing one of my absolute favorite songs

I can't say enough about the amazing amount of talent between these three guys. I guarantee you cannot check out @AmberRMW's post, watch the vids and come away without a whole new appreciation for them. It's so hard to remember how young they all are when you listen to their soulful voices and heart-wrenching lyrics. Simply amazing!

(I know this makes it appear as though I'm partial to Sam, which may or may not be true. However, Bobby's gotten more play around the house than Sam has lately and I cannot deny how completely adorable Marcus is. Watching him live has certainly won me over.)

Twilight or New Moon...Who Got the Look Right?

A very cool comparison of the character looks for Twilight and New Moon
Click to enlarge...

I have to go with New Moon on most of these, although with Alice, I'm just not sure. For Jasper, the hair was definitely better in the first one. What do you think?

Thanks to NewMoonMovie.org for the awesome pic. You can go over there and vote in their poll about this.
