Although filming at Bella's Friday a young fan (I am told by a fan who was there she was about 10-12 years old) thought she saw Taylor Lautner drive by, he was indeed in L.A. and flew out early Friday morning practically undetected.

I met with the lovely ladies from Robsten Lovers as well as a few good friends and we went for some drinks and appies after taking in the landscape :)
Good Times were had and then we rushed on over to The Venue to catch the end of the Opening Band.
A group of other friends had grabbed seats and it was awesome to have a little booth open room area to ourselves just beside the stage.
I snapped a few photos but mostly video from our area as well as some from side stage and upstairs. Whiskey, Sea Blue and Passport are all among my fave songs and were all played *squeee* it was awesome just hanging out with friends, listening to great music and enjoying ourselves...
A lot of people tweeted me to ask about Twilight Cast - there was none there to my knowledge. I know Taylor is out of town and was at a party in LA and I also know the wolf-pack had the night off and some were spotted out and about while Rob & Kristen & Billy worked on set quite late.
Overall, an excellent evening. I took photos of lot's of friends chatting with sam and even got a photo of he and I looking "so pretty" ha! I passed on several tweet messages from Sam's friends around the globe who tweeted me and asked me to say hi for them.... he actually remembered a lot of the people I told him about...
For example I told him his Sake Girl in Tx says hi and he said "Tell Tanya I remember her and hello and thanks" too cute!!!
Anyways - there was a full house and lot's of familiar faces and I think for the most part everyone had an awesome time :)
I have some FANTASTIC photos to share and tons of awesome videos - but I do need some shut-eye so check back tomorrow evening :-)
**Three videos postedcheck them out here
and also go check out...
All my videos will be up soon on youtube so take a peak periodically :P

I missed Sam Bradley's concert in May because I was at my BFF's Annual Cinco De Mayo Party. I was there in spirit though via tweets from friends who were there.
I am (so to speak) a Sam Bradley Virgin ;) This will be my first time seeing him live and I am very excited about it.
I will be tweeting from the show so be sure to check in on twitter if you can't be at the show.
If you are indeed living under a rock and haven't heard Sam's music Check Out Sam Bradley's Myspace where you can read his full bio, listen to his tunes and see his tour dates, photos and other cool stuff.
His page says:
He has a great sound that soothes the soul and while he was born in London he lived all over the place and settled down in Vancouver several years ago. He call shimself a late bloomer as far as a musician but picked it up quickly and was inspired by friend and musician Marcus Foster.
In 2008, came the Twilight soundtrack. His song “Too Far Gone” - a “gentle compliment to the dinner scene” – was a track he co-wrote with the film’s leading male star Robert Pattinson. It made its way onto the films soundtrack via Pattinson’s version entitled “Never Think.” The soundtrack reached the number one spot on Billboard charts, and the entire Twilight movement reached a pop-cultural status of undeniable proportions – all of it revoked Bradley’s anonymity while providing the jumping off point to begin production on his first formal release.
Despite having lived here, I had not heard of him before Twilight.... I am not going to try and "front" and say, "oh, I was a fan of his music first" and yada yada because that would be dishonest.
It was through Twilight that I discovered him, much like a few other artists I now enjoy. His music is wonderful and I am so glad that Stephenie Meyer's books have transformed into movies. This Twilight phenomena has brought so many great people & things into my life besides just wonderful books.
Tonight should be good - I will tweet you the deets :)
Sam Bradley - Lead vocals/guitar
Mark Kerrey - Drums
Jeff Riedlinger - Bass
Dave Meszaros - Guitar
Check out this video:
Tons more Photos by Punkd over at Lainey but here are a couple of my faves...
Lainey also made me smile with this:
Those vampires with their pasty faces and Walmart wigs vs the healthy natural beauty of the wolves – based purely on aesthetics, I am of the lupine persuasion.....Alex Meraz who doesn’t seem to be capable of taking a bad photo. I mean really, it’s like a photo shoot every time
It's fairly accurate - I always joke I'd need me a vampire to keep cool in the summer and a werewolf to keep me warm in the winter (space heater). That wolf-pack is such a good looking bunch..... I am so excited to see them all on the big screen.
Time has gone pretty quickly this time I think.... Being such a HUGE Twilight fan I still get excited each day I am able to go to a set and see what ever I can see... some days are better than others as fas as what I can see or report.... also as far as friends and other Twilight fans responses.... I am just so glad to have met so many other great Twilight fans from around the world through this crazy experience.
Filming is scheduled to wrap October 31, 2009... then the countdown to New Moon Release will set in (as if it hasn't already ha ha!)

I was told about Tuesday's set Monday night from a fan who noticed the set up.
I then confirmed the location Tuesday and recognized a-unit P.A's.
I had been told b-unit was at the camp/beach set and so I didn't bother to go up there again but instead stayed at this set for a bit to take photos before enjoying the rest of my sunny, warm day off with my family.
Apparently this was to be Emily's house, however, rumours were that Sam's house was this house
I have gone to this "Sam's House" and took some photos I will post at some point... but now we have this "Emily's House" rumour, and "Leah's transformation" scene and "Jacob" and "Bella" and the "wolfpack" on set...
If I didn't know who was there I would say it looks like it could have been used as the Cullen House, however, they already have a great Cullen House from New Moon so I don't see a need to change it... it just feels to big and new to be on the reserve!!! Though if it was strictly interiors and done right (movie magic) it could be anything!
The circus was down the street and the only eqipment up by the house I could see was in around the side and not easily photographed.
... the main crew filmed Stewart with Taylor Lautner’s “Jacob” and his boys and Leah’s transformation is revealed.
I don't know exactly what this means.... Here are some parts it could be:
To distract her, Edward talks about the discoveries he’s made while listening to the pack mind last night. For one thing, one of the wolves isn’t a Quileute boy at all — it’s Leah Clearwater. Bella reflects how painful it must be for her and Sam to be in such intimate mental contact. Edward unsympathetically replies that Leah is making life as difficult as she can for the rest of them.
Maybe instead they all talk about it.... Bella, Jacob, Leah, Wolf-Pack... or something? I am so thrown off by this set/scene.
Bella and Jacob head to the beach to hang out. Bella jokingly asks about the latest pack scandal only to find out there is one. Quil imprinted bringing the total of wolves who have done so up to three. Jacob is worried that all the legends may be true. Bella sees no problem with Quill imprinting until Jacob tells her that Quil imprinted on Emily’s cousin, Claire, who happens to be two years old. Bella is shocked and Jacob explains that Quil will take care of her and look after her until she is old enough to understand.
Maybe in the movie they are all chatting and hanging out?
Bella accompanies Jacob to a council meeting of the elders of the tribe, where she sees the rest of the pack, who welcome her as a friend. She is surprised to find Sue Clearwater and her two children, Seth and Leah, at the bonfire as well, and surmises that they must now also be in on the secret. After a lighthearted meal, Bella realizes it’s getting late and she needs to go home, but Jacob quickly lets her know the night is for more than fun.
Maybe before the bonfire and legend telling they all have dinner at the house?
What are your thoughts? This one is sure a difficult one eh?
Well - I am going to try to do that more - but don't worry I will keep the Twi-Reports just as plentiful :)
This is exciting for me...
Actors Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom) and Evanna Lynch (Luna Lovegood) were on hand launching 1000 balloons from the Millenium Bridge in the UK to mark the December DVD release of ‘Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince’
Each balloon will have a tag on it with a code that you use to register online at www.warnerbros.com.uk/harrypotterballoon and if you are a resident of the UK and 18 or older, you could win a trip to the set of Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows and become a moving portrait in the film.
Grrrr.... I wish I lived in the UK for this reason alone....
Does it say Nikki? is it a manip or?
I can't see Nikki and him being a forever kind of thing... I mean I adore Nikki Reed and I don't know much about Mr. Latsis, but he dated Paris Hilton and to me - that's a deal-breaker.... BIG TIME! Nikki can do SO much better!!
Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson will come out of the closet and confirm they are in a romantic relationship in the upcoming December 2009 issue of Harper’s Bazaar Magazine. The lovebirds also posed for a photo shoot together which will complement their tell-all interview.
“Rob and Kristen were relatively open about their relationship,” says a Harper’s employee who accompanied the couple to an Aug. 20 photoshoot for the magazine. The source does seem credible and we already knew for a long long time there was something going on between the two.
UPDATE - - - FALSE!! (big surprise - even if these two are dating they aren't exactly the "tell - all" kind of people!!!)
Someone at InTouch and Perez Hilton revealed that Robsten confirm their romance in an upcoming issue of Harper’s Bazaar. Gossip Cop went straight to Harper’s Bazaar to give them a chance to confirm or deny and here is the scoop they got.
Today’s “Twilight” rumor has Robsten watchers on the edge of their seats.
Sites are picking up a sizzling In Touch magazine claim that Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart will “go public with their clandestine romance in a revealing interview” in this December’s edition of Harper’s Bazaar. “Insiders” tell the tabloid that the “tell-all interview” will confirm months of speculation that the co-stars are a real-life couple.
An employee for Harper’s who “accompanied the couple” to a photoshoot last month supposedly says, “Rob and Kristen were relatively open about their relationship.”
Here’s what Gossip Cop can confirm – the stars DID shoot, in Vancouver, a big feature story that as of now is slated for the magazine’s December cover.
But a source close to the production tells Gossip Cop exclusively that Pattinson and Stewart “do NOT” discuss whether or not they’re a couple.
So there you have it. You heard it here first.
Gossip Cop will continue to cover all things Twilight as the release of “New Moon” approaches and shooting for “Eclipse” continues. Remember to follow us on Twitter for the most accurate celebrity news reporting around – @GossipCop.
So it looks like In Style (who was first to report this rumor) was misinformed AGAIN. Too bad for the Robsten lovers!

My fave part is "Why is everyone hating on Kristen Stewart?She is young, beautiful and taps into america's recent heart throb, good 4 her..& she tokes!"
So far this week we had Monday's Filming which continued as the b-unit on Tuesday.
Also Tuesday the main unit was filming so there were two sets on Tuesday. [I will post photos from Tuesday's main set this evening I hope as they seem to be done at this location now]
Yesterday, of course, I blogged about (and shared photos from) filming at the Forks Police Station.
More photos from yesterday's filming have popped up everywhere... These ones look like the pics from Lainey Gossip by PunkD... though I am not sure why they are tagged differently?! Lot's of "photo" theft going on - I am more about photo SHARING ... with credit and tags in place!!!
Over at TwiFans I saw these:
Can I just say that I love seeing Rob drinking Tim Hortons - hehehehehe!
Peak-a-boo he sees you
Also see Punkd_Images over at Lainey
“Bella” and “Edward” drive up in his Volvo. She’s all curious about sh- and demanding to know everything and he’s being cagy with his answers because what she doesn’t know might hurt her because she’s so fragile and pathetic and then “Charlie” comes out and they talk about the airline ticket and going away together.
Earlier this week, Pattinson was shooting vampire fights on the second unit while the main crew filmed Stewart with Taylor Lautner’s “Jacob” and his boys and Leah’s transformation is revealed.
So to clarify since it caused quite a bit of drama with a few fans.... [ok one fan and one... other person who claims she is not a fan]
It seems when I told one fan that the "camp/beach" set Tuesday was b-unit [as I had heard it was b-unit from a reliable source] I was indeed correct.... however, I didn't think Rob would be at a b-unit [he is usually main unti] and so I said she wouldn't see Rob there.
While it is true she didn't see him there, it is also true that he may have actually been on set that day. I was at the main unit set that day and really had no idea that Rob would be on the b-unit set!!!
More filming today and tomorrow. Full reports over the weekend on these sets (which I have some "setting up " photos of which show some awesome props being used) as well as some photos and blogs from the Sam Bradley Concert tomorrow night.
As always I will tweet all the details from the concert.
It is my Friday today - but I will be posting more tonight and over the weekend - lot's of good stuff I want to write about :)
Thanks for Reading

Also @LadyDispatcher got this pic of inside on the desk:
It looks just like the police station from the first Twilight Movie and was completely designed (inside and out) to be an exact replica. While the cement-looking portions are actually plywood painted with a thin layer of liquid concrete to give the illusion of being actual cement. Neat eh?
With "Edward" "Bella" and "Charlie" on set - what scenes do you think they were filming? There was some interior shots, some exterior shots and of course "Edward" and "Bella" driving up in the volvo.
You can see from the back there is a window... I guess this is for interior purposes.
I went by the set and was lucky enough to walk by when they were rehersing Edward and Bella on the front porch/entry to the Police Station. I saw Robert & Kristen and a guy I didn't recognize (crew maybe? not sure) I didn't take photos because I didn't want to be intrusive....
I felt the less intrusive I was the longer I'd be allowed to stick around... and I was right. I stood by the set for a few minutes and I spoke with some of the P.A's who seemed to be enjoying the sun more than the crew who had been anxiously trying to move giant screens and equipment to block the sun... Edward can't be in the sun... though one would assume post-production could fix this for the most part... I guess not?
Then I was told that they were clearing the street (they have permits so they can close the street at short intervals for filming)so I stood down the street a bit and took a few photos of the vehicles on set.
After i went by the circus since it was almost time for their lunch break and sure enough David Slade, Billy Burke, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart all drove by for lunch.
Here is the director David Slade:
Here is Robert Pattinson (they aren't great shots but there what I have):
It was funny because he drove by then left then came back again 5 minutes later... I joked he maybe "forgot something at set" but - wouldn't he have "people" to go get it for him? who knows! I was thankful to see him drive by twice ;)
Kristen Stewart also came by for her lunch break but I didn't get a good look at her. Billy Burke also came by in a van sitting in the front seat with the windows open. I didn't expect him and I didn't get a photo, however, fans across the street waved to him and he smiled and waved back. He was in complete uniform... how cool!
After that I felt like I had had enough... School would be out soon and since the set was located so close to 4 different schools, I knew the crowds would get bigger and didn't feel like waiting around for that.
Fans who stayed could (from certain vantage points) see Rob & Kristen driving into the parking lot repeatedly as part of the scene shot.
Here is one shot from The Vancouver Sun
and some from Nats POV
I couldn't think of what scene this would be but perhaps it is an adaptation to the book where they are dealing with this particular part:
During dinner that evening Edward, shockingly, brings up the soon to expire airline vouchers to Charlie. This insights an argument between Bella and her father, ending in Bella announcing that she will go to see her mother if she wants.
Lainey also says:“Bella” and “Edward” drive up in his Volvo. She’s all curious about sh- and demanding to know everything and he’s being cagy with his answers because what she doesn’t know might hurt her because she’s so fragile and pathetic and then “Charlie” comes out and they talk about the airline ticket and going away together.
Seems likely eh? Too bad we must wait until June to find out.... *gah*
It was awesome to see Rob, Kristen, Billy and David everytime i go to a set a get a little bit more excited for Twilight Saga Eclipse.... and of course New Moon which has to come first....
Is It November Yet?
On the set of Nurse Jackie with Emily Best, Edie Falco, The creator Linda Wallem, and @PaulFeig. :)
See Photo Here
He is back in Vancouver next week for more Eclipse filming. What a busy man!!!
I know someone who will be buying these - no not me - but if I got them for my birthday I wouldn't complain ;)
The New Moon action figures have arrived, and are now showing up at retailers. Now you can have your own personal New Moon heroes! Check out the randomly priced selection–if price equals rarity, Alice is the one everyone is after:
Discounted four pack of the whole set
I really need to see Bella in person. She’s looking a bit manly, is she not?
I have to say the Bella doll from Twilight has a man-jaw.... weird!

For now I suppose it is just a dream... but dreams DO come true LOL
Twilight Lexicon posted this:
Fans have been clamoring for well over a year for Robert Pattinson to host Saturday Night Live. Last night at the Emmy Awards Seth Meyers went on the record:
“We know you’re kicking off the season with Megan Fox, but how about getting Twilight hottie Robert Pattinson on to host?
Seth Meyers: We would love to get Robert Pattinson. How dare you tell me he’s the hot guy from Twilight, like I don’t already know!
Seth Meyers, closet Twilight, or maybe just Rob Pattinson fan. We love it! So the powers that be at SNL would be into Rob hosting?
S.M.: Yes, absolutely.
Think of all the ridiculous skits you could do with him. The possibilities are endless! That hair…
S.M.: We’re actually hoping if [Rob's] not available, at least his hair will come by and host.”
There was also a fair amount of Tweeting done by other entertainment reporters yesterday that suggest the same thing. So who knows, SNL might actually become a reality.
I am sure if enough Twi-Hards united they could make it a reality - seems Twi-hards have the power to do anything!!!
For that very reason my set report will be brief tonight.
Twitter was all a buzz about one set today and although I didn't go to that set today they have been there for a week now and I have other photos from there that were taken last week and I hope to post tomorrow, providing today was their last day there (The sun has been postponing/adjusting a lot of schedules)
Fans there today reported seeing Jackson waving from a van and umbrella's blocking vehicles. None reported seeing him injured but I believe the reason Jackson was seen coming and going from the set today was because he had to actually leave set briefly due to injury...
From what I heard that set was filming some stunt and action shots involving Jackson Rathbone & Ashley Greene... as a follow up to yesterday.
Today was my day off so instead of going to the same set again my husband and I enjoyed a nice long drive and a great lunch in the sun..... he also came with me to check out a new set for today....
I do have new photos I took from that new set today.... and I will post those after they wrap that location... I am very excited to tell you what I believe was being filmed and also share the photos and get everyones thoughts on them.
Also tomorrow's set (which I took photos of yesterday) will be posted hopefully tomorrow night (providing it's just a one day shoot there tomorrow)
Suffice it to say it will be a busy filming week and a busy weekend of photos and reports... I can't wait to share everything with you and get your point of view... I love the help putting puzzle pieces together on what is going on where :)
Thanks for reading :)
Anyone who knows anything about "Twilight" scribe Stephenie Meyer knows that the vampire-spawning writer has eclectic taste in music. Earlier this year, she blogged about what she did all summer, which included listening to bands you may or may not know like Meese and White Rabbits, as well as some you might, like Muse, Animal Collective and Silversun Pickups.
She's posted suggested playlists for fans of her book series that includes everything from Placebo, Blue October and Armor for Sleep to Elbow, Coldplay, Patrick Wolf, Simon and Garfunkel, Korn, Incubus, Nine Inch Nails and Right Said Fred.
On Monday, the track listing for the upcoming soundtrack to "New Moon" was revealed and it has the same mix of the popular and somewhat-obscure that fans have come to expect from Meyer. The 15 all-new or exclusive tracks feature some of the names that have been kicking around for a while, such as Muse, who refashioned the baroque "I Belong To You" from their new album, The Resistance at director Chris Weitz's behest and Death Cab for Cutie, whose "Meet Me On The Equinox" debuted on MTV.com recently.
Other big names include the Killers ("A White Demon Love Song"), Radiohead's Thom Yorke ("Hearing Damage") and viral video sensations OK Go ("Shooting the Moon"). But there are also a number of acts whose names you might not recognize, so here's a quick primer:
Band of Skulls ("Friends"): This White Stripes-by-way-of-Radiohead English trio formed in 2008 and released the blues-rocking Baby Darling Doll Face Honey in March. They played at this summer's Lollapalooza festival and feature the alternating vocals of bassist Emma Richardson and guitarist Russell Mardsen.
Lykke Li ("Possibility"): Another veteran of Lollapalooza 2009, the Swedish answer to Lady Gaga has gained a legion of fans (among them MTV's own Kurt Loder) for the intensely rhythmic and hypnotic dance music on her debut, Youth Novels.
Anya Marina ("Satellite Heart"): The San Diego-based singer/songwriter, sometime actress ("100 Girls") and radio DJ released her second album of playfully sexy pop tunes, Slow & Steady Seduction: Phase II in January. Her songs have been featured "The Real World," "Gossip Girl," "Grey's Anatomy" and "How I Met Your Mother."
Bon Iver & St. Vincent ("Rosyln"): He's sensitive folkie Justin Vernon, whose For Emma, Forever Ago was recorded under the name Bon Iver in a remote cabin in Wisconsin in 2007 and became a blog sensation in 2008. She's Annie Clark, a member of the Polyphonic Spree and Sufjan Stevens' touring band who performs as the St. Vincent. Her second album, Actor, was released in May and featured orchestrated pop songs she said were potential fodder for film scores.
Black Rebel Motorcycle Club ("Done All Wrong"): This L.A.-based psychedelic garage rock act — named after Marlon Brando's motorcycle gang in 1953's "The Wild One" — have been thrashing around since 1998 and have released five albums of twisty, heady rock.
Hurricane Bells ("Monsters"): A side project from Longwave singer/guitarist Steve Schiltz, this unsigned band will release its debut next year. The mellow, country-tinged songs on the Bells' MySpace page promise some seriously introspective, rainy-day pop gems.
Sea Wolf ("The Violet Hour"): The now-main project from former Irving member Alex Church, this California act got its start when Church's tunes didn't fit into Irving's more 1960s inspired psychedelic pop sound. As a result, Church broke off and pursued an Americana-inspired orchestral country-pop sound on albums such as this year's White Water, White Bloom.
Grizzly Bear ("Slow Life"): The beloved Brooklyn indie-rock band known for mixing folk with electronic instruments released one of this year's most acclaimed albums in May, Veckatimest. Their mix of acoustic guitars, chamber pop, electronic bloops and gorgeous melodies have earned them major blog props.
Editors ("No Sound But the Wind"): England's Editors emerged out of the dark rock sound of bands like Interpol and their inspiration, Joy Division, earning a string of overseas hits with alluring tunes like "Bullets" and "Smokers Outside the Hospital Doors."
Alexandre Desplat ("New Moon (The Meadow)"): The French composer has scored more than 100 films and TV shows since 1985. He's best known for his Golden Globe-nominated score to "Girl with a Pearl Earring," as well as contemplative soundtracks to "Hostage," "Syriana," "The Painted Veil" and "The Queen," which earned his first Oscar nomination.
MTV has a sneak peek of the Stephenie Meyer Female Force comic book.
This is still weird to me... but hey, I'd still probably buy it - or at least borrow someone's who bought it ha ha
Female Force: Stephenie Meyer
From a dream to a string of best sellers to a successful movie franchise, Stephenie Meyer has captured the imagination of millions with her stories about a young girl and her vampire lover. Now the tables are turned as Stephenie Meyer becomes the featured protagonist in a special Female Force doubled-sized one shot. Female Force: Stephenie Meyer, released just in time for the upcoming movie sequel based on her book "New Moon," examines her rise to popularity, her Twilight saga novels and her future plans. This book will also include the history of Forks; the Washington peninsula town where her stories take place as well as other bonus material not found anywhere else.
They also have a J.K. Rowling one apparently - hmmm..
Producers Nick Wechsler, Steve and Paula Mae Schwartz have used their own money to acquire screen rights to "The Host," the first adult novel written by Stephenie Meyer, author of the "Twilight" series.
Andrew Niccol will write the script and direct.
Meyer's novel is a love story set in the near future on Earth, which has been assimilated by an alien species of benevolent parasites that call themselves "Souls." One such soul, the Wanderer, is fused with a dying human named Melanie Stryder, in an attempt to locate the last pocket of surviving humans on Earth.
Wechsler and the Schwartzes are separately teamed on "The Road," the John Hillcoat-directed adaptation of the Cormac McCarthy novel that will be released Nov. 25 by the Weinstein Co. They are also producing the Paul Schrader-scripted "The Dying of the Light" and an adaptation of Pete Takada book "An Eye at the Top of the World," which Ryne Douglas Pearson is adapting.
In addition to writing four volumes of the "Twilight" series, Meyer has been heavily involved in the screen transfers, and she spurned several overtures for "The Host." The producers continued lobbying the author and her UTA reps with a significant offer, a strong vision for the project and a collaborative spirit. Meyer eventually said yes.
In fact, Niccol first came under consideration after Wechsler and the Schwartzes asked Meyer what her favorite science fiction films are. "Gattaca" and "The Truman Show" were in her top five; Niccol wrote and directed "Gattaca" and scripted the Peter Weir-directed "The Truman Show."
Niccol most recently wrote and directed Orlando Bloom starrer "The Cross."
"We wanted Stephenie to be involved in the adaptation and have her endorse and be part of the creative decisions," Wechsler said. "Twilight" has "proven she knows more about what works than most."
