    Write a haiku and maybe get a poster, if you’re quick

    12.11.09 | Permalink | 6 Comments

    The cast of the Twilight films lead the polls (the best actor, best actress, break out actor, best film, and some others) for the 2010 People’s Choice Awards. The People’s Choice awards are voted for by the public (well, the US public), hence their name. They are awards chosen by people, for the people.

    I have two posters of the potential 2010 winner of best break out actor (as chosen by some people), Taylor Lautner, to give away! As much as I’d like to have them I simply haven’t the space for any more. If you want one write a haiku (explained here) about Taylor in the comments below. There are only two posters so the first two haiku will get one!  Eligible only for WCL YA cardholders. Please add your full name [we won’t publish your name]. The posters have folds in them sorry.

    Taylor Lautner plays
    a werewolf in highschool. So
    did Michael J. Fox.

    Robert Pattinson Coming To NZ!

    10.11.09 | Permalink | Comments Off on Robert Pattinson Coming To NZ!

    Well, that is if reports like these two are to be trusted. Word is he’ll be starring in a film called Unbound Captives  alongside Rachel Weisz and Hugh Jackman that’ll be filmed right here. Regardless of whether or not the Twilight star’s 2010 working holiday will go ahead (it does look likely), the internet and local media seems to be rather lathered up about the prospect. I’m sure many of you will be too, I however can’t understand the excitement, It’s not as if Taylor Lautner is coming is it?

    Robert Pattinson’s face

    28.10.09 | Permalink | 6 Comments

    You can make Robert Pattinson’s face through the gentle art of cross-stitch, thanks to the Guardian online. Here are some books in the library on cross-stitch so that you can learn how to make your own fabric Edward. A good Christmas gift in these lean times. I’m hoping for a cross-stitched Taylor Lautner, as he’d make a great cushion.

    Twilight – The Musical

    13.10.09 | Permalink | Comments Off on Twilight – The Musical

    That’s right, Twilight the musical can be watched online. It’s not official! It’s a parody, in fact! Which means you mightn’t like it (apparently it becomes funnier after the first episode). Oh and you will need broadband probably.

    Oh and don’t forget to register for the Twilight Trivia Night. It’s in, like, three weeks, and you will need time to work on a costume (it’s on the night before Hallowe’en, so why not come in costume?).

    In keeping with my tradition (can one other time even be considered a tradition?) of making video ads for our upcoming teen events, here is the official Wellington City Libraries Twilight Trivia Night trailer:


    Thank you to Kristina and Matthew for starring.

    Remember everyone to register, it promises to be a fun night!

    Twihards rejoice!

    Are you familiar with the Scene-it? series of DVD games? They’re a series of movie quiz games you can play on your DVD player – sort of like Buzz, but don’t require a console. Anyway, the exciting news is that a Twilight one is coming very soon and is even coming to the Nintendo Wii in some sort of super deluxe package. Team Edward can face off against Team Jacob in trivia showdowns very soon then.

    New New Moon

    15.09.09 | Permalink | Comments Off on New New Moon

    A new New Moon trailer was revealed last night. You can watch it here. This film seems like it will cover all the bases – romance, unrequited love, lots of action, werewolves, Taylor Lautner often shirtless, ancient Italian vampires, and Michael Sheen (OBE).
