[movieperson id="365131"]Robert Pattinson[/movieperson], [movieperson id="262629"]Kristen Stewart[/movieperson] and the rest of the [movieperson id="369195"]"Twilight"[/movieperson] franchise cast spent their summers working on other projects and getting their photos snapped by every paparazzo in the universe before heading back to Vancouver to film "Eclipse." Sliding just a bit further under the radar, "Twilight" author Stephenie Meyer drifted through the sunny season listening to indie rock and sneaking into a movie theater to catch the trailer for the latest adaptation of her vampire saga.
In an update on her Web site, Meyer wrote, "Admittedly, I went to see the 'New Moon' trailer on the big screen (yes, I'm a total dork. Who cares? It was worth it)."
She ended up staying for the main attraction, the Vanessa Hudgens-starring "Bandslam," loving the soundtrack and how the story "turned upside down some of those lame female-interaction stereotypes."
Though Meyer didn't say whether she got any writing done over the last couple months, she's been listening to a ton of music. Her fave albums? [article id="1602652"]Animal Collective's Merriweather Post Pavilion,[/article]
[article id="1617216"]Silversun Pickups' Swoon,[/article] the White Rabbits' It's Frightening, the [article id="1609441"]Dead Weather's Horehound,[/article]
[article id="1616271"]Grizzly Bear's Veckatimest,[/article] the Weakerthans' Reunion Tour, Elbow's The Seldom Seen Kid and Meese's Broadcast.
"I really should have known about Meese a while ago, but thanks to a mislabeled CD mix, I didn't realize Meese was responsible for one of my favorite songs until I went to their concert," she wrote. "And then I was glad that I already loved them, because the guys in Meese are possibly the nicest people in the world."
She caught Meese live in a concert along with the Fray and Jack's Mannequin. The 35-year-old author also checked out Blue October, whose frontman, Justin Furstenfeld, accompanied Meyer for a song-and-story tour last year to [article id="1589042"]promote the release of "Breaking Dawn,"[/article] the final book in the franchise.
Meyer wrapped up her Web site post with a shout-out to her "Twilight" fans, and the hope that she'll meet them in the fall.
"I'm looking forward to seeing some of you in November for a little movie release that I'm excited about," she wrote, referring, of course, to "New Moon." "Too many months to go!"
