STEPHENIE MEYER’S DIRECTORIAL DEBUT OF JACKS MANNEQUIN MUSIC VIDEO Stephenie Meyer, author of the best selling novel series Twilight, will be be making her directorial debut on Jack's Mannequin's new music video "The Resolution" to be released in September.

ok so let's take one thing i really love (the band) + let's take one thing i hate to love, or love to hate (twilight) = music video for "the resolution" with MERMAIDS??

even teh hipsters are into it (see generally: tweets via ultragrrrl and gurjb).

light the night 2008

because i only blog when i'm asking for something....

Hello Readers,

It's that time of year again—for the third year in a row, I'm participating in the Light the Night walk here at UCLA on September 14, 2008. I'm walking in support and in honor of Andrew McMahon, lead singer of the bands Jack's Mannequin and Something Corporate, bone marrow transplant recipient, and leukemia survivor. I am asking for your help in reaching my goal of raising $1,000 this year.

If you are interested in donating to help me reach my goal and to make a difference, you can make a secure online donation at

Please join me in supporting this wonderful cause.
Thank you in advance for your support and generosity!
