I must admit my bias to that particular clip from "Romeo and Juliet." It has such a lovely, haunting, moving cello and bass line. I play bass and love it when we have something like that.

Hi, Jo! Definitely thank you for the info. Shazaam has been very good at providing a comprehensive playlist each week. I don't know why this isn't reflected on SyFy other than they are just posting what is available through iTunes. I haven't contacted Alicen Schneider, yet. I was hoping for an interview to pop up with her about the Being Human music but it looks like the mainstream media may not be interested so that may soon be my request. I also have a couple of suggested musicians, too.

Cap'n Twirate swiped my credit card and went shopping. Stupid, unreliable, vampire pirate! Now I have all these boxes of Eclipse valentine chocolates, Eclipse valentines with stickers, Entertainment Weekly's with the Breaking Dawn honeymoon photo and Hallmark cards, including the one with the sound of Edward and Jacob. Then there's the Eclipse gum and I don't even like mint. What to do? Give it away, of course. Random drawing per each time period (or until 100 entries are reached), two ways to enter per cycle.

With both official and fan-made designs, T-shirts, buttons, stickers, water bottles -- and wall clocks! -- Cafe Press is a great destination for Twilight fans. Except that the quantity is overwhelming and the design quality is variable. Once you have found an item, it is hard to find that storefront again. Here is a guide to a few favorites I found after months of shopping and two discounts good until February 2, 2011. Continue reading
