After reading a Twilight fanfic that involved Edward and Bella going on a date to the Seattle Art Museum, I decided to go to the SAM website to see what exhibits are currently showing.  When I looked at the list of upcoming exhibits, I was pleasantly surprised to see information for an exhibit of Quileute art focusing on the legend of the wolves and, in particular, how the real legends were misrepresented in the Twilight series.  The exhibit will begin in August and will run until August of next year.  And if you're an art lover like myself, I suggest waiting to go until October when they will also be showing the largest and most comprehensive Picasso exhibit to ever come to the Pacific NW, if not the entire country.  Definitely a once in a lifetime opportunity to see that exhibit, and also being able to see the Quileute exhibit at the same time is the icing on the cake.  So here's the exhibit information for the Quileute artwork, for those of you who are interested-

Behind the Scenes: The Real Story of the Quileute Wolves
August 14, 2010–August 14, 2011
SAM Third Floor Galleries

Wolf headdress, Quileute


The wolf is central to the cultural beliefs of the Quileute Native Peoples of coastal Washington, and wolf imagery is prominent in their art forms. According to oral traditions, the first Quileute were changed from wolves by the Transformer, Kwati; those ancestral beginnings figure significantly in the Quileute world view, even today.


For better or worse, the Quileute were thrust into a media firestorm with the publication of the Twilight books and the release of the first Twilight movies. Because the Quileute were not consulted, their "wolf origins" were misrepresented, and in the books and films they have been portrayed as sexed-up teen werewolves. This has precipitated unwanted visitors to their territory (in the thousands!).

This exhibition consisting of about 30 objects seeks to provide a public platform for the display and interpretation of art works that represent Quileute wolf mythology specifically, and also the larger sphere of their beliefs about spirituality and transformation. As was true for the Coast Salish prior to SAM's 2008–09 exhibition S'abadeb, there have been no prior exhibitions of Quileute art. Although this exhibition will be modest, these carefully chosen works will reveal aspects of Quileute art history, style and meaning.

3rd-Mar-2009 05:46 pm - Twilight vs. Harry Potter Debate
A+J=LOVE
For those that live in the Seattle area, there is a Harry Potter vs. Twilight debate on March 21 sponsored the Seattle library.

I wish I was closer to Seattle (I'm in Ellensburg attending cwu) to take part in that. I am a fan of both, but am wildly opinionated about the lack of talent on the part of Rowling. Not to mentions I am still bitter about her calling H/H fans delusional and militant, bah. Oh man, it is a Saturday. Maybe if I'm bored I will go to it.

Thanks for octoberland  for finding this info.

WOW! Long time since anyone has posted. I know I disappeared for a while. So...how is everyone?
play with fire
Twilight


And a slightly different trailer, which I do like, though it has the older release date of Dec 12 on it... SO glad they moved it up to occupy Harry Potters old November slot.

Wow sorry about not getting in here to work on stuff in a very very very vampire-lifetime-like time!

So to make it up to you all: Book quote quiz!

Where are these quotes from?!

1) Bella: "It's over. We've all been sentenced to die."

2) Edward: "You are only human after all."

3) Edward: "I'll get you one for Christmas."

4) Paul: "Hey are you going to eat that hot dog?"

Those were all ridiculously easy. SOO hard one!

"That's mine and I want it back."
(You don't get who said it!)

Shiny Volvo Owner

Hello everyone! Nice to see we've grown a little! 

I decided we need something cool to liven this place up. So I came up with some options, and you guys should choose! 

1) Spam Post (Though this might be hard seeing as there aren't that many of us)

2) Quote Guessing Competition/Trivia (This would be weekly, the prize: the satisfaction of a job well done)

3) Question Trading Sessions (Get your questions answered)

4) Weekly "We're Awesome" Discussions (Not like we don't do this already)

5) Something fun you thought up!

Well let me know. Unless you think this all sucks then simply comment and tell me to go to hell!
