I’m a huge fan of Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight Series. Since the movie version of Twilight is coming out on November 21, this is a good time to outfit your BlackBerry to show off at the theatre.
Included in this article are (customized for Pearl, Curve, or Bold):
- A free Twilight theme from CoolBlackBerryThemes.com
- Free Twilight ringtones from CoolBlackBerryThemes.com
- A free video of the final movie trailer
- A free music video of a Twilight soundtrack song by Paramore, “Decode”
If you haven’t read the book…
Stephenie Meyer is a fantastically talented young writer whose first published book has become a major bestseller. The Twilight series consists of four books:
- New Moon
- Breaking Dawn
I’m no literary analyst or critic, so I won’t attempt a real review–you can Google for that. But I will at least report that the Twilight series is essentially a modern-day teenage love story, but it is also a highly suspenseful action-packed thriller, with strong elements of fantasy bordering on horror. It seems that Meyer researched deeply into legends and fables of vampires and werewolves. But have you heard the quote that goes something like “good artists borrow, great artists steal”? Well, Meyer took these legends and stole them–made them her own, in an unforgettable way.
Meyer also has followed up the Twilight Series with another way-cool book, The Host. Check that out, too.
CoolBlackBerryThemes: Twilight Theme and Ringtones
My new friend, Jennifer Calandra, runs a very cool site at CoolBlackBerryThemes.com (CBBT). Jennifer has done a cool theme for the Twilight movie. Below are some screenshots for the Home Screen, Incoming Call screen, and Keyboard Locked Screen (Curve version).
Download the theme for your model of BlackBerry:
CBBT also has a couple of ringtones based on a song from the Twilight sound track. Download to your computer:

Twilight Soundtrack Music Video
The soundtrack for Twilight features bands that Stephenie Meyer listened to while writing the Twilight series. My favorite song is Decode by Paramore; it was written specifically for Twilight. It has a very cool music video featuring lead singer Hayley Williams.

Postscript, 2008-11-21, 3:27AM: I just saw a midnight preview of Twilight with my daughter and her friend. It was really good. Bella and Edward are cast perfectly. The book is better, as often is the case with a book made into a movie. Now, like an idiot, I’m getting up in a couple of hours to wait in line to get a BlackBerry Storm on its first release day. Thankfully, there are some holidays ahead to catch up on sleep.
