‘New Moon’ Eclipses Box Office Record!
The Twilight Saga: New Moon pulled in a massive $26.3 million at North American box offices in midnight showings on Thursday (November 19).
The previous record was set by Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, which made $22.2 million in midnight screenings when it was released this past July.
The vampire romance movie will rake in a total of around $100 million in its opening weekend. That’s incredibly amazing!
JustJared.com went to the NY screening last night and had so much fun meeting the cast at the after-party at The Box!
Emily Osment Loses Voice On The View!
Emily Osment smiles as she gets the news that she can still sing while backstage at The View on Friday morning (November 20).
The 17-year-old singer told producer Jennifer Brookman that although she can’t talk, she can still sing and will be able to perform.
Emily shared, “I have a really good vocal coach and he’s taught me how to sing without using my vocal cords. So, I can sing, but I can’t talk. It’s weird.”
Check out Emily’s performance below!

Cities And Bikes!
Bicycles are the best option for the environment and getting around big cities.
Many city governments have begun to offer bike service for citizens in large cities. But, if you ride bikes in the city, then you need to be careful. There are few bike lanes for riders and you need to watch out for pedestrians and cars. So where do you ride?
More and more we see bike lanes in our cities. These lanes are only for cyclists but many times they are badly constructed or don’t cover enough ground.
On Flickr, a group decided to post picture of the worst bike lanes in the world. It is amazing that such useless and dangerous bike lanes have been created. There are some bike lanes only 15 feet long, others that run into parked cars and some that are badly marked. There are also bike racks where it says ‘Prohibited to park bikes’.
With all of these pictures we can’t help but wonder if it is a good idea to ride bikes. One thing is for sure, it will be a long time until we reach the level of Holland, where bikes are the kings of the road and cars come second!
