Panic At the Disco's New CD

Panic At the Disco has a new CD which will be released March 25. It's called Pretty. Odd. You can buy their first single from the new CD, Nine in the Afternoon, from iTunes now also.
And it turns out that Panic at the Disco has dropped the ! from their name. I've heard that the exclamation point was just put there by fans and it stuck.

Panic will also be headlining the Honda Civic Tour.

Skydiving...Without a Parachute?

Sounds like death, right? Not for Jeb Corliss. I saw this guy on the Colbert Report a couple of nights ago, and I thought he was interesting. I've always been interested in extreme sports, but I'm way too chicken to ever try them.
Corliss's dream is flying, but not in a plane. He wants to jump out of a helicopter without a parachute AND land safely. How? With his wing suit. The wing suit workss sort of like a flying squirrel, for each foot he drops he glides three feet. Right now he has to wear a parachute, since if he wanted to land safely without one he would need a specially designed runway, which he actually has a design for. All he needs now is the funding.
Apparently, there's at least half a dozen other groups around the globe also working on the same goal as Corliss.

Here's some pictures of Jeb Corliss in his wing suit and two other skydivers over the Florida Keys.

Une Rose Noire Video

Woooot! I'm finally posting a video on here!

Anyway, my French teacher showed us this music video a couple of weeks ago, and I thought it was pretty cool. I love the part where the guy starts dancing :)

The song is called Une Rose Noire by Paul Cargnello, and in case you haven't figured it out yet, it's in French.

Part of Twilight Movie Going to be Filmed at Kalama School

*squee* :D
This is where I want to go this year's spring break...

Check out this article:

During spring break, a vampire will haunt the silent halls of Kalama High School.

A location scout told Principal Mike Hamilton Thursday that movie producers want to use the school for a film based on the "Twilight" novel series.

The thriller-romance, currently in "pre-production" stages, will star Kristen Stewart ("Into the Wild," "Panic Room") as Bella Swan, 17-year-old who moves from Arizona to live with her father in Forks, Wash., and meets a pale, mysterious but attractive young man named Edward Cullen.

Cullen is played by Robert Pattinson - best known for his role as Cedric Diggory in the "Order of the Phoenix" and "Goblet of Fire" Harry Potter films.

The "star-crossed lovers," as author Stephanie Meyer calls them on her Web site, struggle to work through Edward's vampire urges as they fall in love.

Hamilton said Kalama High School, a brick building built in 1938 on a hillside overlooking the city of Kalama and the Columbia River, resembles the school described in the Twilight book series.

Filming will likely occur while students are away for spring vacation, March 31- April 4 or a three-day weekend this spring, Hamilton said.

"They'll probably be here three or four days," Hamilton said.

Some students already were buzzing about Twilight before learning part of the movie could be filmed in Kalama, Hamilton said.

"The girls, they just, I thought they were going to have a heart attack. They already knew about the book," Hamilton said. "Some of the kids are really very excited."

"Twilight," published in 2005, was a New York Times best seller. It's sequel, "New Moon," spent 25 weeks on the New York Times Best Seller list after it debuted in September 2006. "Eclipse," the third enstallment, knocked the latest Harry Potter book from number one on the USA Today book list last summer.

Summit Entertainment is producing the film, which will be shot at locations around the Northwest, including Forks. To film at the Kalama school, Hamilton said producers will rent the facility and provide any improvements (such as new paint) for filming as they see fit.

It's still unclear if the movie will need local "extras" for filming, Hamilton said. If they do, Hamilton told producers he's going for the role of principal -- which got "a little chuckle," he said. But they didn't tell him no.

I soooooooooo wish I could be an extra in the Twilight movie.

Random Pictures

So far January has been a slow post month for me. Since nothing really exciting has been going on in my life recently I thought I'd post some of the pictures I took with my new camera so far.

These are pictures of when I went to go see Juno with my friends.

<--- One of my friend Jen eating popcorn. I took it in black and white.

We went to this 50's style restaurant afterwards. I loved how they gave you ketchup in a smiley face.

I actually liked Juno. It definitely had some good parts, but it wasn't as funny as i thought it would be. The soundtrack to it sucked though.

This is just a picture I took of a tree with lights on it. It came out a little fuzzy, but I think that just makes it look cooler.

Orlando Bloom's birthday was yesterday :D
