What’s all the fuss? Is this #Robstengate

In the past week pictures, and now statements have “been made” in regards to what I am now calling Robstengate.

The tabloids have posted pictures and then all the news stations and the rest of the gossip magazines followed suit that Kristen Stewart, our beloved Bella has cheated on Robert Pattinson. In rebuttal, Kristen herself has posted an apology for cheating on Rob. Can we believe any of it?

I mean I have seen the pictures in question and there is a thing call Photoshop, so are these pictures credible? I have seen a lot of our fandom break down these pictures pixel by bloody pixel in hopes that they can in fact find the truth out themselves. But I have a better question… Why do we care?

I love Rob, loved him since he was Cedric Diggory. I am a fan of Kristen, not a Krisbian at all, but a fan of her work. Why are we so obsessed as fandom that they may no longer a couple? How does that change how we feel of them as actors? They are still going to act, in many other roles. Rob will soon be seen in ‘Cosmopolis’, and KStew has other projects on the horizon as well.

I have also seen the people taking sides? Why on earth would we do that? They are actors that fell in love. It is quite common of an occurrence.  Michael Sheen was once in love and had a child with his co-star Kate Beckinsale. Anyone take a side on that or better yet care that she is now with the director of her very lucrative franchise ‘Underworld’? The answer is no.

Fan sites have been deleted as well as twitters and for what? 
Fans have declared sides and for what?

Fans have said they forgive HER, and for what?

This is utter insanity ladies. Twilight fans for the most part have a bad rep for being young and immature and we are just playing into that image that they have. Stop taking sides. This didn’t happen to us. Why the insanity?

Can someone please explain why everyone is crying and so upset over this?
People are so easily ready to blame Kristen, what happen to blaming the other man, Rupert? How come no one is blaming him or bad mouthing him? He was there and IS partially if not all to blame for Kristen’s indiscretion.  After all, “A prick has no conscience.”

In closing, just please stop the insanity and grow up. They or she doesn’t need our forgiveness. We fell in love with them both because of Twilight, and if we think they are talented, we can and still should support them NO MATTER WHAT! She isn’t asking for our forgiveness she is asking for his. He is the ONLY one she needs to account for any of this NOT US. She isn’t dating us, nor did she ever.  Just please let it be and move on. I assure you the world will still revolve despite #RobstenGate .

What have you done for YOU lately?

We only get ONE chance at life. One chance to make it really count. We live in a time where everything needs to be faster, easier, more efficient….or so they say. Our priorities have changed. While cell phones, computers and cars have gotten as small as the bills we carry in our wallets, the time we spend with family, the time we spend on ourselves and the amount of time we spend caring for one another has diminished. We are in such a rush to do everything that the moments that really matter are passing us by. When was the last time you sat down at the table and had a meal with your family, or turned off the television and instead had a family game night? When was the last time you took a moment to do something nice for yourself? Maybe even tried something you have always dreamed of doing? How about, when was the last time you did something nice for a complete stranger?

I know that times have changed. I understand that it's harder to keep up with the mundane tasks of everyday life. There will always be bills to pay, kids to raise, dinners to cook, jobs to perform & dogs to walk. It feels like there isn't enough time in a single day for anything else. Possibly you're afraid to talk to someone you don't know out of fear that they could potentially harm you. That is no way to live.

Fear is such a crippling thing, isn't it? I spent most of my life being too afraid of what people thought, uncomfortable situations and what I thought of myself. I didn't take chances. I never tried anything new out of fear that I may disappoint myself or others. Basically, I wasn't living to my full potential as a human being. I had two deaths in my family, within about a week apart from each other, the threat of possibly losing my job, and the horrible mental state I was putting myself in. (I have struggled with depression and suicidal thoughts since I was a teenager that have gone undiagnosed & I never talked to my family about. The death of my brother made all that worse.) That was when I really began to think about how I have been wasting my time here on Earth.

I have come to the realization that WE create our own destiny. WE have the power to change our lives. We are given a life by whatever force you believe in, be it religious or scientific belief, but we are given a life either way. We are given eyes to witness beautiful sights, ears to hear beautiful music and sounds, lungs to breathe in the fresh air….a heart to FEEL with. A heart that beats and is meant to keeps us alive. It's what we do with this life that is important. Are we meant to rush around without experiencing the beauty of all that is around us? No, we are not. So, what I have done is created a "Bucket list" of things I want and need to change in my life. So far this list is helping me stay focused. Seems silly, I know, since I should already be able to do these things without a list, but for me this is what works. Everyone is different.

Since I have stopped rushing around and started making time for myself in between all the things I need to do in a single day, I have felt happier. I have had a more positive attitude. I take my life a day at a time. Whatever comes my way, I tackle it and move on. I have begun to enjoy the many simple pleasures this life has to offer me. I have stopped stressing as much when I go to work. I have been taking care of ME and my family FIRST. I still understand my other priorities, the ones that pay the bills, but I have a better understanding of what is really important. I always take a moment to appreciate the ones I love. I will never again take anyone or anything for granted. I will promise to tell people how much I love them on a daily basis & I have promised to live every day like it is my last day because our time here is short. It could end tomorrow. I don't ever want to lose someone and not have them know how much they mean to me ever again.

The point of this blog is to make people aware that no matter how hard you work. No matter how fast you move or how much you have to get done, Life moves on. The world keeps spinning. The chores, jobs, places to go, and anything else, will still be there. MAKE time to do things you enjoy. MAKE time to be with the ones you love. Take a class, travel, learn a new language, donate some time to a local charity or shelter, maybe say hello or make conversation with someone you don't know. Make someone else's day, make YOUR day that much brighter. Just don't waste your time. Be thankful you are alive. Don't be afraid.

And most importantly……


Much Love and Respect,
~Melinda Rodriguez

Judi Shekoni Talks Breaking Dawn Part 2

Music Monday: @muse

I found Muse many many years ago. My brother had put them on a mix tape and then on a CD for me. I was immediately a fan. They were unlike anything I had ever heard before. Innovative and creative and spot on. 

When Stephenie Meyer wrote the Twilight books and then said one of her inspirations was listening to Muse, an entire new following found the band. 

If you haven't listened to the play-lists while reading our fave books, then you are missing out. She has picked perfect songs to convey every mood and action. It only adds to the experience.

Picking one muse song to post was not an easy task. This is bar far one of my faves, I get lost in this song. I hope you enjoy it.

Testing a code

I'm just testing a code for someone... or something.. don't mind me.


Green with envy! Twilight star Kristen Stewart shows off her fantastic form on the golf course

Thanks to my follower @Bellanieve for pointing us to this article from 

Her form is enough to make most people go green with envy.

And this also proved to be true on the golf course as Twilight actress Kristen Stewart showed off her skill in Los Angeles on Friday.
The 22-year-old proved to have impressive touch as she tried to get her ball in the hole with a putt attempt on the green.

Of course, with a name like Stewart one would expect she would be a bit of a natural at the Scottish game.

No doubt her legion of male fans will be pleased to see her showing off her impressive form in Pacific Palisades.

And while she was probably not following club protocol, her skin-tight hotpants will have surely brought a smile to the faces of club members.
The perfectionist Snow White and the Huntsman star did not look pleased with where her ball ended up, despite her impressively fluid stroke,
No doubt she was disappointed after seeing her putt stop agonisingly close to the whole.
Whatever the reason there is little doubt her fans will think she is just par-fect.

Caption me this entry

We have an entry in caption me this, what do you think?

Dropping the ball at #SDCC2012 :

‘An Open letter to Summit Entertainment/Lionsgate and Creation Entertainment’

Via: @AbsolutTwilight

I am a huge fan of the Twilight Saga and there is no hiding my love for the bad boys of the Volturi and yes I know the books do not revolve around them, but it’s a shame when they are just plain neglected. They are part of the books, may not an integral part of the entire saga, but dare I say they are a huge focal point of the last book and more importantly the last movie ‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2’?

I know I am right about that, I did read the books and with Nessie being considered an Immortal Child and the fear of the Volturi coming and being prepared for a fight, why oh why were none of the Volturi at the Comic Con panel in San Diego a couple of weeks back?

We have all sorts of new vampires that are being introduced and they were on hand, yet sadly Summit/Lionsgate dropped the ball and did not have ANY of the Volturi members there to represent our beloved saga.  Well boo on you!

It’s almost like they are an afterthought. We get promos of the Cullen’s (which I am not complaining about) and always the wolves, now we have seen a glimpse of some of the Nomads and the Amazon, but sadly not a picture of Aro, or Marcus, or even the sexy guards, Felix and Demetri ( Daniel Cudmore and Charlie Bewley). Where are they at and when can we finally expect to see them released?

Daniel Cudmore was at #SDCC this year promoting his role of Master Chief for Halo 4, and I am sure he would have been happy to represent both.  Did you even ask him to make an appearance?  By reading his very sarcastic words about “look at all the Volturi promo pictures and posters” I am going to say NO, you didn’t even bother.

Some of us just want to see more and with the upcoming film the last installment, I think it would be prudent for you to show the Volturi the justice and courtesy and get to pimping and promoting them.

There are more fantastic vampires being introduced and we would like to see more of them in the way of promo and pictures and even merchandise we can purchase! We would love to be able to be able to get some #Denali goodies and #Amazon merchandise. There is more to this last movie then just the Cullen’s.

For most of us (speaking for myself) we did fall in love with Edward and Bella and got sucked into the love story of them both. But as the story went on and we got to meet new people, Jacob, Aro, Felix new loves and maybe some obsessions were formed. Edward will always be my first love, he was the one that gave me chills up my spine, but then you introduced us to the Volturi. We got to see more of them in the movies and got introduced to them in more detail then we had in the books and for me a love was born.  I am not alone in this I assure you.

Fan Fictions were born dedicated to the Volturi and other covens as well.
The public wants more than the basics. We want more covens and pictures and merchandise!

I was lucky to meet the very awesome and sweet Judi Shekoni in Orlando via one of the many Twilight Conventions I have attended provided by Creation Entertainment, I would love to see more pictures and promos of her coven as well. I am very much #TeamAmazon and #TeamVolturi

To the lovely people at Creation Entertainment:

With the conventions coming to end (which I am not understanding why) GIVE US MORE MERCHANDISE from some of the other covens beyond the Cullen’s and the Wolves. You are having Mr. Christian Camargo at New Jersey in October, how about some #TeamDenali merchandise?  Also Daniel Cudmore and Charlie Bewley will be there, any chance of having some #TeamVolturi merchandise? I have creation spendable cash I need to use! While we are on the subject of the Volturi can you PLEASE get with the people at Summit/Lionsgate and get the updated pics of their characters for the posters that you will be hanging and ultimately auctioning off? You slacked and ONLY had Dan’s pictures of Felix from NEW MOON not even the Eclipse pictures in Nashville in April of 2012!

Please consider ALL the fans and ALL the vampires and ALL the covens when releasing the last installment of the movie. We want to see more than just the basics!

#TeamNomad – WE want more Toni Trucks and Eric Odom
#TeamAmazon More Judi Shekoni and Tracey Higgins
#TeamVolturi MUCH more Jamie Campbell Bower, and Daniel Cudmore and Christopher Heyerdahl
#TeamDenali WE NEED more Christian Camargo, Mia Maestro
#TeamWolfpack more of the very awesome Julia Jones and Boo Boo Stewart
#TeamRomanian WE NEED more Noel Fisher and the awesome (yes I am biased) Guri Weinberg

Somebody That I Used To Know lyrics

Now and then I think of when we were together
Like when you said you felt so happy you could die
Told myself that you were right for me
But felt so lonely in your company
But that was love and it's an ache I still remember

You can get addicted to a certain kind of sadness
Like resignation to the end
Always the end
So when we found that we could not make sense
Well you said that we would still be friends
But I'll admit that I was glad that it was over

But you didn't have to cut me off
Make out like it never happened
And that we were nothing
And I don't even need your love
But you treat me like a stranger
And that feels so rough
You didn't have to stoop so low
Have your friends collect your records
And then change your number
I guess that I don't need that though
Now you're just somebody that I used to know

Now and then I think of all the times you screwed me over
But had me believing it was always something that I'd done
And I don't wanna live that way
Reading into every word you say
You said that you could let it go 
And I wouldn't catch you hung up on somebody that you used to know...

But you didn't have to cut me off
Make out like it never happened
And that we were nothing
And I don't even need your love
But you treat me like a stranger
And that feels so rough
You didn't have to stoop so low
Have your friends collect your records
And then change your number
I guess that I don't need that though
Now you're just somebody that I used to know

I used to know
That I used to know

'Breaking Dawn' At Comic-Con: Our Favorite Moments

Let's relive the best moments of the 'Twilight' victory lap in San Diego.

By Terri Schwartz

SAN DIEGO — Comic-Con bid a bittersweet farewell to "The Twilight Saga" this weekend as "Breaking Dawn - Part 2" marked the series' fourth and final panel at the convention.
It was as hard for the cast to say goodbye to the franchise as it was for the fans, and Summit sent "Twilight" off with a bang in San Diego. In honor of the series' dominance of Comic-Con for the past five years, we've pulled together our favorite moments from the weekend to share with you guys:

The First Seven Minutes Debut
Though Bill Condon couldn't attend the"Breaking Dawn - Part 2" Hall H panel , he said he wanted to kick it off by picking up exactly where we left off in "Breaking Dawn - Part 1." That meant showing off the first seven minutes of the movie, which included Kristen Stewart's favorite scene: Bella's first hunt. It only helped that we got surprise "Host" footage from Stephenie Meyer too.

And Then There Was the Animal Sex
If you thought "Breaking Dawn - Part 1" had some steamy sex scenes, just wait until you see what's in store for "Part 2." "We just wanted it to be animals, you're not humans anymore," Stewart said during the movie'sComic-Con press conference. "Yeah, how do you do that? We tried, and they told us it was rated R, and we were like [snaps]." That was about as inappropriate as the time Robert Pattinson said he wanted to "lick the pages" of "Fifty Shades of Grey."

A Time to Look Back
"Twilight" first premiered at Comic-Con back in 2008, meaning the series has spent its entire run being promoted in San Diego's summer movie festival. With "Breaking Dawn - Part 2" being the last film in the franchise, the cast spent a lot of time looking back. Nikki Reed said Comic-Con was the moment she realized how big the series was, while Stewart said she enjoys the "blast of energy" from fans every year.

It's Not Easy Being a Parent
Mackenzie Foy and her swear jar were two of the funniest topics of our "Breaking Dawn" Comic-Con takeover live stream. It turns out she made quite a few bucks from catching her fellow castmembers accidentally "cussing," just like Stewart did during the movie's press conference. Robert Pattinson admitted that on-set fatherhood was "a strange experience" that meant he's "not a kid anymore."

There Are Many New Vampires
One of the coolest parts of the "Breaking Dawn - Part 2" panel was the introduction — in person! — of all the new vampires we meet in the movie. Some of them stopped by the MTV News Comic-Con headquarters and proved to be just as charming as the big three stars are. What we would have paid to have seen the "Thriller"-style dance-off that Maggie Grace, Mia Maestro and Casey LaBow teased during our interview.

Say Goodbye to "Midnight Sun"
Meyer might love "The Twilight Saga," but she is done with vampires for the time being. She said as much during the "Breaking Dawn - Part 2" panel, but specifically told MTV News that "Midnight Sun" isn't coming anytime soon. She also doesn't think Summit will reboot the series without her. "I think that obviously that could happen, and in the right scenario, it might be something that I'd be excited about," Meyer added.

Gone But Not Forgotten
Casting a somber pall over the "Breaking Dawn - Part 2" panel was the death of "Twilight" fan Gisela Gagliardi. Both the fans and the cast offered kind words about her tragic passing. "Whenever you're faced with horrific tragedy, it's important to remember love at all cost," Jackson Rathbone said. "It takes time, but if you just remember that the love is with you for the rest of your life, your memory of them will be with you the rest of your life, that is beautiful. My condolences and my heartfelt sympathy for everybody."

New Twilight related book?
