New Moon Music we’re freaking out about

f_MusicSavesMm_03e9391Dear Music-loving Twihards,

Moon & I are music freaks. We met at music school, we send each other mixes all the time (and by “we” I mean Moon sends me mixes). We both have music business degrees, and we have both worked in the music industry at one point in our lives.  So needless to say, music is really important to us- especially when it involves things we love, like the New Moon Soundtrack.

Add to the list of things we love about Chris Weitz, it sounds like he has kick-ass music taste.  We read that he’s confirmed Thom Yorke from Radiohead on the soundtrack as well as Bon Iver (my fav artist of 2008- please learn how to pronounce his name so I don’t get 2nd-hand embarrassed “BONE-EE-VAIR”). Moon & my friendship really blossomed in the days while we were obsessing over Adam Brody on the OC, and we can’t mention Adam Brody/Seth Cohen without mentioning Death Cab for Cutie who is rumored to have a track on the soundtrack as well.

We’re psyched.

Today, enjoy the music. Maybe you know it Or Maybe it’s new. This isn’t about the videos. You don’t even have to watch them- just push play and let the music fill your soul. This is about the amazing artists that we’re so exicted to hear in New Moon:

Bon Iver

Skinny Love

Edward & Bella: Why we do this thang

Dear International LTTers (since all the US LTTers are recovering from the 10 hot dogs, 4 cheesebergers, 3 cases of cheap beer, 2 bags of chips & 12 deviled eggs they consumed yesterday OR nursing their hangover in the ER since their cousin blew off his hand with the fireworks),

Today we want to remind you with a great fan-made video, as we often do, why we bring you posts each & every day, thru rain, hail, snow, earthquakes, hangovers, migraines, and crabby moods:

for Edward and Bella (mostly just Edward though)

Note to YouTube vid makers, it's lame when we can't embed your vids

Oh fine, we also do it because we love you all a lil’ bit (plus it’s a whole lot of fun!)

Thanks for letting us have so much fun & reading our silly little letters!

International LTTers, go back to your hangover-free days, and US LTTers, cold compress, tylenol, dark room, quiet, sleep it off.. you’ll be golden for work tomorrow!

Love,
UC & Moon
