New Moon....Jacob vs. Edward

Friday, November 20

It's kind of funny...I was drafting this post on Monday night and gathering everything that I wanted to say and to have ready regarding this topic, then what do you know but the man, or rather young man, himself was on the Jay Leno show so I had to stop and watch it.  Then on Tuesday as I was blog hopping I ran across a post by Ms Moonlight which I thought was hilarious and at the same time echoing my own "cougarish" thoughts.  Who is this all about you may ask?  The delectable character of Jacob Black from the Twilight series (and let me point out that I am referring to the character rather than the jail-bait real life young man).

Yep, I've read the Twilight series and enjoyed them. I also saw Twilight the movie which I thought they did an excellent job of making into a movie. But as the release date approached for New Moon and I started seeing more and more movie posters and clips I've been wondering why it seems like us...ahem "mature" women go for Jacob Black, while the "younger" teen age girls go for Edward Cullen.  Me, I am all about Jacob.  Give me a wolf shifter with that yummy warm bronze skin, and buff body, long or short hair....doesn't matter to me.  He's someone who sticks around and protects those he loves, ie. Bella and his pack.  Yeah I would take that anyday over a cold pasty, though sparkly vampire, who leaves his "beloved" Bella out of "selflessness".  I call it wallowing in self pity.  

And then check out the video clips in the widget. I'ts got TV spots, behind the scenes video and oh so much more...but the last video is the best.

And of course to support my Jacob over Edward position, there's also this clip(not that you should really need anymore convincing)....enjoy :)

As you can tell, I much prefer Jacob to Edward.  During New Moon and the subsequent books I found myself wishing Bella would go for Jacob instead of Edward.  Even though I knew she wouldn't I actually like Jacobs character better. But what about you?  If you had to choose, which one would it be and why?  Am I totally missing something here  about the whole Edward fascination(even though I am pretty sure I'm not) ? Enlighten me :) 

Are you going to see the movie on opening weekend?  I'm thinking about it, but it's going to be overrun and crowded so I think I will wait a couple of weeks.  Then again I'll have a hard time waiting because the previews look AMAZING!

I love Jacob Black also because I am a werewolf lover, but not just that..I just really don't think the guy who plays Edward is all that cute..not that I don't love my vamps because I do..just not this perticular one. :) Now if we are talking about Carlisle..thats another story...LOL

Carrie, I agree. I just love Jacob Black's character and he is so sweet and protective. But Edward has depth, sensitivity, and maturity. Yeah, I know, hudreds of years of maturity. LOL

And the "cougarish" thoughts... did you take a look at those beautiful abs, and the V shape of the sides...okay, I'll stop drooling now.

I have read the series, but will not see the movies.
I am in Jacobs camp---he is warm blooded.

I cant believe they considered dropping Taylor Lautner because he was not Buff enough Well he showed them. I'm a Jacob fan its all about The wolf The Protector so the other one is shinny. Like you I so want to see the Movie but I to will wait not sure I could take all the screaming need to save my voice (snick).
I am just now watching Ellen Robert Pattenson is on not a bad interview rather see Taylor,
Have a good one Ladies.

Watching that clip gave me chills!!

While I was reading the books, I was on Edward's side. But now, I wish Bella went with Jacob. That is some hot chemistry right there!!

I'm hoping to see New Moon either this weekend or next. I have to see Jacob on the big screen!!

[Though you'd like to know that my captcha word is "pantie" - LOL!]

I work at a library and am in charge of children's programing. We had a book to movie party for New Moon and all went to the movie together. It is small town and going with a bunch of teens dressed as book characters is fun. They over act and make comments during the film, but no one seems to mind. We had fun. Edward or Jacob? No contest - Jacob. Haven't yet figured out why they both like Bella. Alice is the best female character in the books. I haven't finished the series. Too many books to read. Will start on #3 soon.

I'm with you ladystorm....Robert Pattenson just does not float my boat.

Oh yeah Armenia...I saw those abs, but that's not the only reason why I like Jacob over Edward....but it's a good one :)

Hi Estella,
You know, I very rarely see a movie after I've read the books. The movie almost never lives up to my expectations and they usually have to cut out so much to fit it into a 2 hr movie. But I have to say I think they did an excellent job with Twilight, and from the clips that I've seen of New Moon, I think the second will be even better. It's definitely worthy of a DVD rental.

Hi Alba,
I didn't know about them dropping Taylor. Thanks for the tidbit. I have to admit I don't really keep up on all of the Twilight gossip, rumors, and updates. I'm a fan, but not that much of a fan :)

Hey Book Vixen! I have to admit I was for Jacob even as I read the books. He spoke to me even then :)

That does sound like fun Librarypat! I didn't make it to the movies this weekend. Too much to do before the holiday and we have some sickies in the next weekend after the feast, New Moon will be my reward. Thanksgiving a feast for the tummy....New Moon a feast for the eyes :)

My FREE Kindle Quest

I've wanted a Kindle for what seems like forever, but haven't been able to afford it (and that's saying something since I can justify the cost of just about ANYTHING that I really want). I've tried winning one in one of the many giveaways that have taken place over the couple of years, but with no luck :( So I've decided to take matters in hand so to speak :) I've now decided that I am going to accumulate enough Swagbucks from my Swabucks searches to buy in essence my new Kindle will be FREE...funded entirely by my internet searches done on Swagbucks. I'll keep you informed of the Great Kindle Quest below (in case you're interested....if not feel free to just skip over this part, but really who wouldn't be interested in a FREE Kindle?)
Goal: $119
Current Swagbucks Amazon Gift Card balance: $90.00
If you'd like to learn how you can earn Swagbucks and earn your own Amazon Gift Cards to buy books, a Kindle or other merchandise sold at Amazon contact me and I would be more than happy to tell you how I plan to go about it. (just so you know you can earn both and gift cards on this rewards site)
