Wanna hear the song? WELL HERE IT IS!

I absolutely love Death Cab and I think the song is peeeerfect.

Heh. Okay. I’m all kinds of fail. I can’t even try to justify it. How about those VMAs though, eh? If you wanna see the trailer, check it out below.

It’s pretty fantastic, no? Thank God there’s more Rob =]

So tell me, if you’re still hanging around in spite of my fail, are you excited for the movie? Will it be better than Twilight?

You probably thought we were done with the blockbuster 2009 Video Music Award announcements. After all, we’d already hit you with news that Beyoncé, Jay-Z, Lady Gaga and Taylor Swift would be performing live at the at the September 13 show. But guess what? We’re about to drop a pop-culture bomb of OME proportions.

“Twilight” stars Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner will appear on the show to debut an exclusive expanded trailer for “New Moon,” the second film in Summit Entertainment’s vampire saga.

We’ll repeat that slowly for you: Fresh “New Moon” footage. Pattinson. Stewart. Lautner. Boom!

The film’s first trailer premiered during this year’s MTV Movie Awards, and now the 26th annual VMAs are shaping up to be another bonanza for devoted Twilighters. On the day of the show, MTV.com will debut the first single off the “New Moon” soundtrack, the Death Cab for Cutie tune “Meet Me on the Equinox.” Based the second book in Stephenie Meyer’s supernatural series, “New Moon” is set for release on November 20, while the soundtrack drops on October 20.

Airing at 9 p.m. on September 13, the Russell Brand-hosted VMAs will pit Lady Gaga against Beyoncé, as each pop star has nabbed nine nominations, including nods for Video of the Year and Best Female Video. Britney Spears has garnered seven nominations for her “Womanizer” and “Circus” clips in categories like Video of the Year and Best Pop Video. Kanye West, Eminem and Coldplay received four nominations each.

Additional performers include Green Day, Pink and Muse. Among the evening’s presenters are Katy Perry, Nelly Furtado, Leighton Meester, Chace Crawford, Ne-Yo and Miranda Cosgrove.


I just had to post this because it’s so funny:

For the most part, fashion trends reflect what is happening in the wider world; nothing greater highlights this than the effect the economic bubbles of the 1920s and 1990s had upon fashion. In 2009, we’re faced with much the same issues: economic problems. Fortunately, some of the young British stars of today – Rob Pattinson and friends, Bobby Long and Marcus Foster – are telling the young men of the world that it’s O.K. to look poor. Everyone – whether rich or poor, famous or unknown, can look the same and it’s tres cheap.

So, young men, hang up your tuxedos and suits. Fold away those khaki pants and preppy blue and pink shirts. Dig out your old holey, ripped, worn-out jeans, t-shirts of any kind, (preferably with holes), plaid shirts – preferably missing a couple of buttons, those stacks of hoodies, and oversized ratty-tatty sweaters. Look for old beanies and baseball caps and get ready for fall with the new “Homeless Chic” look.

While on a recent U.S. tour, Marcus Foster, one of Britain’s “on the brink of stardom” musicians/singer/songwriters tweeted that he shopped at the Salvation Army on 99-cent Wednesday and bought a thousand shirts. Meanwhile, Rob Pattinson told his Twilight director, Catherine Hardwicke, that he had to borrow one of Marcus Foster’s plaid shirts (well-worn and comfy) to wear to the Teen Choice Awards because all of his were dirty. Paired with jeans and a casual jacket with his famous haystacky, lackadaisical hair, Pattinson was chic and trendy at the awards show.

Meanwhile, Bobby Long has been seen performing throughout the U.S. in his plaid shirts and cut jeans with long, swooping hair over his eyes and a day or two-old beard scruffing up his cheeks. The only way to describe these young guys’ styles is to say “Homeless Chic.” And is it ever popular. Even London’s dapper Prince William has been seen wearing a scruffy beard as if he, too, is following the “Homeless Chic” look.

What possesses people to write these things? I don’t think Rob (or Marcus or Bobby for that matter) looks homeless. Just comfy. And comfy is good. So what if they don’t wear freaking Armani everywhere they go?

EDIT: I forgot about the Stoli shirt. That one’s… uh, ready for the great smelly dumpster in the ally.

Robert Pattinson usually comes in at the top of most Hollywood polls and lists. When it comes to the Forbes list of the most powerful vampires in Hollywood, Pattinson comes in 5th.

The Twilight star received a place on the list for his wildly popular character, the century-old, devilishly handsome yet brooding vampire, Edward Cullen.

Pattinson had some tough competition on the Forbes list, especially from True Blood’s Stephen Moyer, Buffy the Vampire Slayer’s David Boreanaz, and Blade’s Wesley Snipes, all of which came in ahead of Pattinson in the poll.

As the vampire phenomenon continues to grow, lists like the one at Forbes.com are sure to change a bit. Perhaps by the time the fourth and final installment of the Twilight Saga comes out, Pattinson can climb his way into number one!

At first glance, Death Cab for Cutie might seem like an odd choice to write the first single from the upcoming “New Moon” soundtrack.

After all, unlike Paramore — whose “Decode” kicked off the ultra-successful “Twilight” soundtrack — none of the guys in Death Cab are “Twilight” obsessives. But before you judge too harshly, consider DCFC bassist Nick Harmer: He’s been to Forks, Washington — the sleepy town author Stephenie Meyer set the “Twilight” saga in — and he’s been there for fun.

“Oh yeah, I’ve been there a bunch. And I went before it was the place from the ‘Twilight’ books. It’s definitely one of those Northwest towns you hit once or twice, and it’s awesome she chose to set the novels there,” Harmer told MTV News. “It’s part of your trip through [Washington’s] peninsula. There’s not a lot of civilization out on the coast — I’m not being disrespectful, there are no giant cities out there — it’s just towns, and you stop at all of them to see what they’re all about.”

Harmer knows a thing or two about Forks (for the record, he says it’s “very nice” there), and he used that knowledge to help his Death Cab mates pen “Meet Me on the Equinox.” The song will debut on MTV.com on Sunday, September 13, the day of the MTV Video Music Awards. It’s a song the band would’ve been endlessly proud of even if it didn’t get picked to be the lead single from the “New Moon” soundtrack (which hits stores October 20).

“We wanted to record a song that we loved and we would use on an album or anywhere and submit it to this process, and if they passed on it — if they were like, ‘Hey, you know what? This isn’t quite right for us, thanks a lot for trying’ — we’d still have a song out that we’d be proud of, that we could put somewhere else. For us, it was a no-lose situation,” Harmer explained. “What was most important for us was to get the material right first … and it tied into these films, especially ‘New Moon,’ because if you strip away all the vampirism and the werewolves and the Northwest and everything, basically, the ‘Twilight’ series is just a big romance novel. It’s a big story about love, and that’s a major theme for us.”

And as luck would have it, the tune did get picked, which means Death Cab are now gearing up to shoot a video for the song (they’ll film it later this week in Toronto). And though details about the clip are still slim, Harmer seems to be onto something with his idea — one that will no doubt endear him even further to “Twilight” fans.

“The safe route would be to go with the straight performance video, like that Paramore video. But I don’t think we’re going to be outside in the woods … you know, been there, done that. I don’t think we’re going to try to cut a narrative in where we’re all dressed up like vampires running around with fake teeth in,” he laughed. “I’m of the mind-set that the more Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner you can throw in the video, the more popular the video is going to be. Nobody wants to look at us, so we’ll probably be standing in the shadows.”


The MTV Video Music Awards will air September 13 at 9pm ET.
