The Beautiful Letdown

If you are a straight guy, I suggest not reading this post.

Try this one instead.

It took Raft3r three months to finally finish reading New Moon.

Yes. As if Twilight wasn’t torturous enough, I needed to have another serving of the Bella-Edward teenage love affair.

Raft3r is going to great lengths to impress the ladies.

I do understand the chicks’ fascination with Cullen. He is a bad boy. Girls love that.

Until now, the entire Twilight phenomenon still escapes me. I have already finished the first two books and they have done nothing for me. Not a thing.

Oh by the way, Raft3r is Team Jacob.

Wendy said...

I haven't read any of the twilight books. I read way too many juvenile fiction books in high school and I couldn't take more of those. I did like Twilight the movie though. New Moon I haven't seen. I'm waiting for the pirated copy. :D

Raft3r said...

wendy, Sinabi mo pa. High schoolish talaga sya. Sobra.

gillboard said...

Still proud to say, haven't jumped in the twilight bandwagon!!!

woohoo!!!

Jerick said...

never read a twilight series page, never saw a twilight saga movie.

random student said...

Not to bash the fans, but the twilight movement also does nothing for me. i only walked out on two movies so far -- that and Pearl Harbor. It's for teenagers. I think it can be a good television series though. The fans would love to see it on a weekly basis and in DVD collection.

Mz. Common Sense said...

Though definitely a teenage movie...the Twilight series wasn't all that bad. Definitely not worth all the hype, but I didn't think it was a complete waste of time.

I only saw the movies, though. Never read the books...don't really think I need to...

I think after seeing New Moon I'll need to go for team Jacob too... :)

Raft3r said...

gillboard, Good for you! Hehe

jerick, Naku. Sayang. Never too late para magsimula. Nyahaha

random student, I know better para hwag na patulan ang pelikula. Hehe

mz. common sense, Jacob! Jacob! Jacob! Nyahaha

Raft3r said...

Judayski said...

I admire you for this wonderful way of wasting your time. =)

Team Jacob nga din pala ako gaya mo even if I barely remember anything sa lahat ng nabasa ko sa series.

Raft3r said...

judayski, Sa tatlong buwan kong pagbabasa wala man lang akong natandaan sa kwento. Hehe

prinsesamusang said...

i do not like the story. never read a single page. though i watched the movie new moon but not in its entirety - only the parts with jacob.
glad we are on the same team.

Raft3r said...

prinsesamusang, Nyahaha! High five?

Andy said...

Hindi ko yata kaya yung ginawa mo. Baka mapatiran ako ng ugat sa utak pag nagbasa ako ng Twilight na libro. Ang mahal pa naman magpa-ospital ngayon.

Raft3r said...

andy, Ok lang. Wala naman akong utak, eh. Hehe

Andy said...

Balitaan mo ko kung maganda yung third book. Pareho pala akong Team Edward and Team Jacob; hindi ako makapag-desisyon kung saan papanig, haha

Raft3r said...

andy, Nyahaha. Ano ba. Pili na. Hehe

neuroticsister said...

LOL PM was right there you know. All four of us never dared to read it. But we did watch the movie new moon, all for the love of Jacob's nice abs! LOL

Raft3r said...

neuroticsister, You know musang? Interesting... I did not watch the movie. Di ko tuloy nakita mga fave scenes nyo. Hehe

laieesha said...

i just finished re-reading the entire series. i got bored, so i read all the books again. i realized di pa rin nagbabago love ko kay jacob... taylor lautner is SO not what i had in mind. jacob in my imagination is much more.. MANLY. besides, fantasizing about taylor makes is creepy and a literally a crime hehe.. though i did squeal like a little girl when he first took off his shirt in New Moon hahahhahahahah im such a cougar!

Raft3r said...

laieesha, Nyahaha. I had you in mind when I wrote this post.

len said...

I never had an interest to read the Twilight series although I did watch its movie version. :p

Jacob or Edward? Hmmm... I'd say Jacob is hot but Edward is love. nyahaha

Raft3r said...

len, Ah. The ultimate battle of love and lust. Hehe

Anonymous said...

Raft3r said...

Liz said...

Ako? Team Edward! Highschoolish but I loved it. I finished the saga in 6 days, adik no? At inulit ko pa, hehe.

Raft3r said...

liz, Don't worry. Madami kayo. Hehe

eden said...

waaah.. I don't know about these books or movies..lolzz.. I dont have much time to read books these days too.:)

Raft3r said...

eden, Ok lang. You are not missing much. Hehe

bestfriend said...

pareho tayo bestfriend, twilight lang na book ang binasa ko at nagtataka ako kung bakit kinikilig mga tao, medyo highscoolish kasi ito, atyung movie super wala lang, kaya nga hindi na din dapat ako manunuod ng new moon pero sabi ng mga tao mas ok daw comapared sa twilight movie, and yes nagustuhan ko nga yung new moon movie! mas maraming action kasi and mas ok yung pagkakagawa nung movie, medyo nabitin pa nga ako sa ending

Raft3r said...

bestfriend, Best friends nga tayo. Hehe

bisaja said...

Ay naku, hindi ko alam kung ilang beses ko inulit basahin ang series. I love the story, kasi parang nastuck ang utak ko sa highschool. Nyahaha. And favorite ko parin ang Love Stories. Ano ba yan!

Anyway, Team Jacob ako, and yoko talaga si Edward and naiinis ako kay Bella. Ang engot talaga! Hahaha! Buti nalang at nagkaanak sila ni Edward para may pair na rin si Jacob. So happy ending for everyone. Happy din ako.

Ayoko si Edward kasi ang napipicture ko si Pattinson, and I don't find him gwapo at all. No offense sa mga Team Edward. And sana pinalitan nila si Lautner sa second movie kasi totoy pa rin sha kahit na nagka abs sha and all. Although bagay sa kanya ang Jacob pre-werewolf.

Raft3r said...

bisaja, This post is for YOU. Hehe
