The O. C. is an American teen drama television series created by Josh Schwartz that aired on the Fox network in the United States from August 5, 2003, to February 22, 2007, running a total of four seasons.

The series premiered with high ratings and was one of the most popular new dramas of the 2003–2004 television season. It was referred to as a pop cultural phenomenon and received positive reception from critics. However, ratings declined; the low ratings led to its cancellation in early 2007 after an online petition that gained over 700,000 signatures. The O.

According to Meyer, the book is about losing true love; the title refers to the darkest phase of the lunar cycle, indicating that New Moon is about the darkest time of protagonist Bella Swan's life. Meyer wrote the book. Writing the book was difficult for Meyer as she feared the readers' reaction to the book and cried as she described Bella's pain; the book was released in hardcover on September 6, 2006 with an initial print run of 100,000 copies. Upon its publication in the United States, New Moon was successful and moved to the top of bestseller lists, becoming one of the most anticipated books of the year.

Moreover, New Moon has been translated into 38 languages. A film adaptation of the book was released on November 20, 2009. Reception for New Moon was more positive than that for its predecessor; some criticized the middle section's pacing. On Bella Swan's eighteenth birthday, Edward Cullen, the vampire she loves, his family host her a birthday party at their residence. While unwrapping a gift, Bella receives a paper cut, which causes Edward's adopted brother, Jasper, to be overwhelmed by her blood's scent, attempt to attack Bella. Trying to protect her and the Cullens move away from Forks, but in an attempt to encourage Bella to move on, Edward tells her it is because he no longer loves her. With Edward's departure, Bella suffers severe memory depression for several months. In the months that follow, Bella learns that thrill-seeking activities, such as motorcycle riding and cliff-diving, allow her to "hear" Edward's voice in her head through her subconscious mind.
She seeks comfort in her deepening friendship with Jacob Black, a cheerful companion who eases her pain over losing Edward. Sometime after losing Edward, Bella starts to enjoy Jacob's friendship. After spending some time with Bella, Jacob starts experiencing some unexpected and drastic changes with his mood swings and personality; as Jacob undergoes a long and life-altering transformation and Charlie become concerned. A few weeks Bella notes that Jacob isn't as happy-go-lucky as he once was, she isn't so comfortable with Jacob's recent changes, shortly thereafter, she discovers that Jacob has unwillingly become a werewolf, that there are other tribe members who are werewolves too. Jacob and his pack protect Bella from the vampire, a part of James' coven, Victoria, who seeks revenge for her dead mate, whom the Cullens had killed in the previous installment. Jacob starts developing physical emotions towards Bella, but she doesn't feel the same after experiencing a life-changing breakup with Edward.
This envious of Edward. Jacob saves Bella from drowning after jumping off a cliff and kisses her in the events following. Meanwhile, a series of miscommunications leads Edward to believe that Bella has committed suicide by jumping off a cliff. Distraught over her suspected suicide, Edward flees to Volterra, Italy to provoke the Volturi, vampire royalty who are capable of killing him, though they refuse, deeming his mind-reading ability to be too valuable. In contrast to Edward's rash reaction to the news of Bella's death, Alice Cullen cleverly makes a surprise visit to Bella's house, which overwhelms Bella. Bella asks a series of questions, Alice tells her that she saw Bella trying to kill herself; as Alice's visions about Edward change Alice and Bella are unable to understand whether Edward is or will be safe. They rush to Italy to prevent Edward from revealing himself to humans so the Volturi are forced to kill him, arriving just in time to stop him. Before leaving Italy, the Volturi tell Edward that Bella, a human who knows that vampires exist, must either be killed or transformed into a vampire to protect the secret.
When they return to Forks, Edward tells Bella that he has always loved her and only left Forks to protect her. She forgives him, the Cullens vote in favor of Bella being transformed into a vampire, to Rosalie and Edward's dismay. However, Jacob sternly reminds Edward about an important part of their treaty: if the Cullens bite a human for any reason, the treaty is over and the wolves will attack; when Bella reminds him that it's none of his concern as being a vampire is what she wants, Jacob reveals it is his business as she doesn't understand what's going to be at stake for her and the Cullens. Before he can continue warning her, they hear Charlie asking Bella to get inside the house at once. Jacob apologizes to Bella once more before leaving, the story concludes with Charlie grounding Bella for running off to Italy. In the novel, Quill was upset over Embry and Jacob not hanging out with him anymore and voiced his concerns to Bella who came for a visit; the movie omits this. Bella never confronted Sam in his werewolf form in the novel, but rather in his human form.
In the novel, Jacob confronts Edward at Bella's house and reminds him o

Modest Mouse is an American rock band formed in 1992 in Issaquah and based in Portland, Oregon. The founding members are lead singer/guitarist Isaac Brock, drummer Jeremiah Green, bassist Eric Judy. Influenced by Pavement, the Pixies, XTC, Talking Heads, the band rehearsed and recorded demos for two years before signing with small-town indie label K Records and releasing numerous singles. Since their 1996 debut This Is a Long Drive for Someone with Nothing to Think About, the band's lineup has centered on Brock and Green; the band achieved mainstream success with their fourth album Good News for People Who Love Bad News and its singles "Float On" and "Ocean Breathes Salty". Judy performed on every Modest Mouse album until his departure in 2012. Guitarist Johnny Marr joined the band in 2006, shortly following percussionist Joe Plummer and multi-instrumentalist Tom Peloso, to work on the album We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank. Guitarist Jim Fairchild joined the band in 2009; the band's sixth album Strangers to Ourselves was released on March 17, 2015.
The band's name is derived from a passage from the Virginia Woolf story "The Mark on the Wall", which reads, "I wish I could hit upon a pleasant track of thought, a track indirectly reflecting credit upon myself, for those are the pleasantest thoughts, frequent in the minds of modest mouse-coloured people, who believe genuinely that they dislike to hear their own praises." It was during his teenage years that Brock, who at the time was employed at the local family video store just outside Seattle, met bassist Eric Judy. Brock and Judy discovered drummer Jeremiah Green, who resided near Seattle, at a heavy metal show, at which point they decided to make music together. In 1994, at Calvin Johnson's Dub Narcotic Studios, Modest Mouse recorded its first EP, Blue Cadet-3, Do You Connect?, released by K Records. This was followed by a single, "Broke", recorded by Steve Wold under Sub Pop records at Moon Studios in Olympia, Washington. During this time, Modest Mouse recorded what would have been its first album, Sad Sappy Sucker, but constant delays caused the album to be shelved and forgotten.
It was not until 2001 that it was released. Before the band made its way into the pop music world in 2004, many of Modest Mouse's tours included stops at DIY/punk venues. After moving to Up Records, Modest Mouse released two full-length albums and other recordings including the 1996 LP This Is a Long Drive for Someone with Nothing to Think About. Steve Wold recorded and produced this album along with the next offering, Interstate 8; the 1997 album, The Lonesome Crowded West served as the band's breakthrough. The Lonesome Crowded West gained the band a cult following, is now popularly considered to be one of the defining albums of mid-1990s indie rock. During this time, Nick Kraft became involved with the task of refining the band's sound. Prior to its release, the band had recorded the EP The Fruit. In 1999, Up Records released a singles and rarities collection entitled Building Nothing Out of Something that included the entirety of Interstate 8 except for the songs "Edit the Sad Parts" and "Buttons to Push the Buttons".
In 2000, Modest Mouse released its first album on Epic Records. The album, produced by Califone's Brian Deck during five months of sessions in Chicago, was met with critical acclaim, including a 9.8/10 score from online music magazine Pitchfork Media, despite concerns about releasing material on a major label. The album would subsequently receive further acclaim; the band licensed "Gravity Rides Everything" for a Nissan Quest minivan, a move that Brock has publicly acknowledged as blatantly commercial but necessary to achieve financial stability. Regarding the commercial, Brock stated, "People who don't have to make their living playing music can bitch about my principles while they spend their parents' money or wash dishes for some asshole."In 2001, Modest Mouse released the EP Everywhere and His Nasty Parlour Tricks, a collection of unused songs from the recording sessions of The Moon and Antarctica. In 2002, the band joined Cake, De La Soul, the Flaming Lips, the Hackensaw Boys and Kinky on the Unlimited Sunshine Tour.
In March 2003, Green left the band after suffering a nervous breakdown. The same year, he and Judy appeared on Adam Forkner's first solo album, VVRSSNN. Drummer Benjamin Weikel joined the band, replacing Green, along with Murder City Devils guitarist Dann Gallucci, who had played with Modest Mouse. Prior to starting the band’s writing and recording process, Brock was devastated by the loss of "a couple of the most important people in my life," he said. Following these events, the band released their fourth album, Good News for People Who Love Bad News, on April 6, 2004; the following August, the album was certified Platinum, having two hits with "Float On" and "Ocean Breathes Salty". The album was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Alternative Music Album that year, "Float On" was nominated for Best Rock Song; that year, Green returned to the band and Weikel returned to drumming for the Helio Sequence. The public radio program Marketplace used "Float On" as bumper music, which helped propel the group to a broader audience.
In 2006, Johnny Marr joined the band after Gallucci quit amicabl
