By all standards, "Twilight" is a phenomenon. With best-selling books, merchandise flying off the shelves and now a new film that appears to have "hit" written all over it, why is "Twilight" causing such a stir? Perhaps it can be traced back to one of the main reasons the original Bram Stoker's "Dracula" was such a hit - the undying love story (literally).
Oftentimes, when a band takes the stage at a concert, the crowd will jump to their feet in excitement over seeing their idols in person, but rarely will the audience stay on their feet for the entire concert.

On NBC's "The Biggest Loser," trainer Bob Harper is the picture of excellent health, motivating morbidly obese Americans to take charge of their lives by putting an end to their destructive eating habits and sedentary ways. The results of the show are astonishing - contestants lose hundreds of pounds and they are given the necessary skills to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Whoever came up with the idea to have these two emotive troubadours tour together was a marketing genius. David Gray and Ray LaMontagne have two of the most distinctive and recognizable singing voices on the music scene today, and seeing them back-to-back on September 8 at the Greek Theater in Los Angeles in concert was a delight to behold for both my fiancée and me.
On Animal Planet's "Whale Wars," every member of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society that travels to Antarctica to stop the Japanese from whaling, bravely and selflessly pledges to Captain Paul Watson (the founder of Sea Shepherd) that he or she is willing to die for the whales.
