On “Getting” Rob Pattinson: A Follow-Up

Warning: Today’s LTT is Rob centric. That’s because Team Seth, after admitting she doesn’t get Rob Pattinson, took some advice & sat down with Rob interviews to see what all the fuss was about.

Dear LTT,

I put in the hours and interviews. I did my duty to Queen and country. I came to know precisely what “the Rob” means. And I also fell for Steve Jones, but come on, who wouldn’t?

But let’s break it down, shall we [Jane]?

My Favourite Colour? I don’t know, grey maybe?

Laura Culpepper gets a run for her contest win in this interview for MTV.

Okay, probably wasn’t the best one to start me on, maybe I’ll watch it again now that I’ve been… broken in to ‘the Rob’. But basically this immediately reminded me of a guy I had a crush on in college who was a total douche. It was an insta-trip down memory lane to those awful nights when I’d try to make conversation with him and he’d just ignore what I’d asked and give me another answer. Something bogus or ridiculous. Potentially true, but completely unrelated. Like that his most recent accomplishment was clipping his nails. Or that he’d just finished up the project of buying underpants.  I didn’t ask you this, Mike C., I don’t care! If you don’t want to talk to me, just stop doing it. (And stop wearing the same beige Gap corduroys I own, buy men’s clothing! It was one of those What The Hale Was I Thinking crushes. Where 2.5 weeks later you realize that the ipod on-the-go list you’ve concocted sounds so much like your tenth grade Emo Is Awesome playlist that you should just go take Elliot Smith lessons and end the drama.)

With that in mind, I wasn’t a big fan of Rob in this interview. But I moved on and things did improve!

I’m not good at when you have to look scared. What, you mean acting?

All eyes and Coke-drinking close-ups are on Rob in this Artist on Artist myspace special with Hayley from Paramore.
(can they not rename this show?)

This was a fun interview, and Hayley seemed pretty cool. The “here” segment was hilarious! And I say “here” just like her! Rob likes the way I say “here”! (zomg!)  I did enjoy Rob’s paranoia of childhood. It somewhat reminded me of my Mancunian friend who is Rob’s age, though he’s slightly less insecure. Anyway, good interview! And it enabled me to understand the meaning of ‘the Rob’.  Plus we have the gem of each time he drinks from his coke. Which immediately made me think of MADtv’s Bon Qui Qui skit. “No, you can have a coke.”

My favorite part of the interview was the editing! I felt like I was watching Curb Your Enthusiasm or Peep Show!  But let’s get down to the gritty, and I do mean Rob’s hair. It just stays put. I mean, I knew this. I do read LTT after all, but really. Ew. Just ew. Mike C. had hair like that and it took him 25 minutes to do his hair. I think I like the Twi bouffant better than Rob’s RL hair. Or I like his hair when he doesn’t touch it and demonstrate the situation that it is.

More after the jump!

Adult movies–That’s what the internet’s for.

Steve Jones turns me on with a high five and the word ‘duvet’ in this Twilight Day interview for T4.

So, we’re like bumping along with this and it’s all going nicely and laughs here and there and Steve Jones saying the word “lurking”, getting me all hot and bothered, and then at 5:15 we find out who actually filmed Two Girls and a Cup. ROBERT THOMAS! WTForks?! I felt like Steve did: amazed, appalled, and amused. (And I wished I could’ve been there with Steve, so we could share a look and use it as a private joke that we’d reference whilst drinking in pubs. Do you realize Steve Jones is Welsh? Just like Sheen Peen and all the other wonderful men in the world.)   But this is about Rob!  Let’s get back to him.

Back it up to to 2:40 when we embark on the major gem of this interview: grotesque sex toys. Rob innocently thinks no one will want to put a RPattz toothbrush in their mouth after seeing his face on a double ended strap-on. But Steve knows the cold, hard truth: you can tie lots of toothbrushes together to make one massive cylinder of multiple Robs. No batteries needed for that, just a little elbow grease…  Second gem is Rob saying “puritanical”. I don’t know why, but it was just really cute. (cue my first “Aw, I kind of like Rob here” moment)

Buddha continued to throw jacks, or tacks, at me

Rob explains that religion is more important than relationships in his Best Story Ever.

Um, what the hell is this? Please explain.

Our sex will be so amazing that I’ll end up killing you

Rob explains to Access Hollywood how he doesn’t think Twilight was meant to be published.
(Yeah, I totally pulled an UsWeekly in my subheader there, teehee)

I love how wide his eyes get at the beginning. Then he dismisses all Twihards as a sidedish of green peas (or whatever food you don’t like and won’t eat).  And the little girl impression! hehe  I have to say, this interview made me laugh less and giggle more. If that makes any sense. Maybe it was the interviewer’s approach. Or the death via sex part.
“I’m not begging alright.” That was the gem. (cue my second “Aw, I kind of like Rob here” moment).  As I imagined Cougwicke reading his email of passion, I knew she must have immediately gone out to buy a bundle of RPattz toothbrushes and a rubber[band]. Um, anyway.  He seems much different in this interview than the others.  Much more innocent and much less jaded. Perhaps it was one of his first?

No, we do it all the time

T4 strikes again for Eclipse, but no Steve Jones. :(

I’m sorry, what? At 1:47 did Rob really just say that it wasn’t weird to do the “excessively inappropriate touching” scenes with Kristen because they do it every day?  Yes. He did just say that. Robsten Lives!
Anyway, this one was funny. I liked Rob here. I felt like I was watching him give the interviewer a handout and a career boost. Which I’m into (people using their power for good).  At the end he even says, “You used me to get a free trip to LA!” and she’s all, “Shut up!” and thinking, “Basically.”  Love it!

So, a breakthrough discovery as to why I’m just not that into Rob has occurred over the course of breaking down these interviews: Rob reminds me of Mike C.  And Mike C. really made me feel like a loser.  Just like Bella responds when Edward asks, “You’re not gonna let this go, are you?”  No, Mike C., no I am not.

So, Rob, I’m sure you’re a nice guy, but you remind me of an asshole guy I used to like. Sorry, I just can’t get past that.  But I’m sure there’s someone else out there for you!
…and if you could have your manager get me Steve Jones’ number, that’d be fantastic!

With Kind Regards,
TeamSeth

ps- My Gap corduroys that Mike C. also had got lost at some point. Perhaps it’s better that way.
pps- Steve Jones had a cute little Sam shirt on in the interview! Super heart him!

Okay Rob fans- did Team Seth give Rob a big enough chance? Do you think she’s a lost cause?

    I didn’t knew who or what Bon Qui Qui was. Thank you….. now every time I drink a coke I have to think of Bon Qui Qui sigh…. btw plse tell me that people like Bon Qui Qui doesn’t exist in RL!

    • TeamSeth

      You don’t wanna think about this skit? Girl I will CUT you. Ruude! :D

      But you should instead think of Rob drinking his coke and the editor/producer of the video choosing to cut to each time he does it. I <3 that.

  • Obava

    Great post! Well, TeamSeth, we can’t say you didn’t try your hardest.

    Are you going to change your name to TeamSteve now?

    xo obava

    • eatmyjorts

      When we had a conversation on here the other day I totally forgot about Steve Jones. In my humble opinion he is a lovely man in all respects, but unlike Charlie Swan he happens to be a famous ladies man.

      • TeamSeth

        Eternal bachelor for certain. But if I could just end up next to him on a long train ride from Edinburgh to Cardiff… and engage him in conversation… and just listen to his voice. His voice. Le swoon.

        • ChillinWithCullens

          Mmm…yes, TS, you’re right about his voice – Steve Jones had me at, “Lookit yoo! Ya big freekin moovie stah!” **drool** :)

        • TeamSeth

          I wanted to note this photo. Count them, 1, 2, 3, 4 bikini-clad girls. Don’t worry ladies, this Florida girl has plenty o’ bikinis to choose from… and she certainly knows what to do with a fun noodle.

  • http://mainericefamily.blogspot.com no cool name

    Whoah, TS, I just LOOOVED this post! I can’t exactly pinpoint why, as I sort of do like Rob (shhhh, don’t tell the hubs) and I find him kind of adorable in all of these interviews. I actually love him in the first one – he’s so adorkable (not my term, but to whoever came up with it, BRILLIANT – love it).

    Then again, he doesn’t make me think of any of my personal Mike C.s.

    Thanks for a super-duper post. Here’s to hoping you’re having stress-free day! xoxo

    p.s. Go Steve Jones! Go Welsh dudes!

    • TeamJacobEdward

      I heart that you use the term adorkable because I do too! Not my term either, but I’m constantly making up words. Sometimes real words just don’t quite say it well enough. My two oldest nieces get a kick out of the fact I love learning cool new words and making words up. So much so, that they got together when I got hurt and was laid up earlier this year and made me a dictlittle ionary of words they made up. :)

  • drsaka

    TeamSeth- really great effort! The T4 interview with Steve Jones is one of the best. Rob hits so many inappropriate topics in the interview and Steve helps him right along. However, I do love the Laura Culpepper interview; Rob’s hilarious there. I appreciate you trying though!

  • JodieO

    Bah, TeamSeth, you crazy, Girl. The Laura Culpepper interviews are the best. I’m still in my own little world of Team Pattipepper.

    • http://mainericefamily.blogspot.com no cool name

      Team Pattipepper FTW!

    • TeamSeth

      hehe I read this as Team Peppermint Patti :D

    • TeamSeth

      Okay, I want to add that in that interview, I just felt like Rob was going to say something to her afterward when they grabbed a cup of coffee… something like, “Yeah, I don’t really know how to date.” Mike C. fed me that line. What does that even mean?!

      I just felt bad for Culpepper. It was an emotionally gutwrenching time watching that interview.

      Otherwise it’s effing hilarious.

      • JodieO

        I actually like the other Pattipepper interview better.

        I’d also recommend the Moviefone interview with KStew (ff through her rambling 3 minutes in the middle where she talks about how she can’t talk about her next project) and SMeyer. Or at least the outtakes when Rob tells KStew that her cat is going to die.

        And watch Rob going to strange peoples’ houses for Oprah.

  • blue

    It’s is ok that u don’t like him :)Everybody has different taste ….
    I love Rob cause of his interviews ………….He is so charming and awkward…It’s not necessary that things I like has to be liked by other person cause everybody has different tastes .I just want people to be civil about it :)

  • Goodgirl goneplaid

    Love this follow up TS! The Steve Jones T4 interview with Taycob is also quite bizarre…they kind of look alike…kind of not.
    It’s a shame that douchey Mark C has tainted your impression of ‘the Rob’ but I’m with Dr.S and happy you put in the leg work. Good job!

    • eatmyjorts

      I hadn’t noticed the Alpaca Convention on T4…His interview with Kristen was funny too.

      • TeamSeth

        hehe, she coughed and he’s all, “You ok?” and she’s all Hyperbole and a Half, “No, I’m dying.” I smiled.

    • TeamSeth

      I may or may not have watched like 20 Steve Jones interviews after watching the Rob one… including the Taylor one. It was pretty funny, but made me miss Rob because he’s a much more natural interviewer. (you know what I mean) But, I especially loved the mancrush Steve seemed to have on Taylor and his body. He’s all, “Now do you wax or shave? Because I’m covered in fur, I’m a wolf, and if you had any tips…” “No, I don’t have anything to wax or shave. Sorry.” “Oh.” Awwww, don’t worry Steve, I like a furry man!

      • LattersBaby

        what? it made you “miss rob?” the seed is planted

  • robsfuturemate

    It was nice of you to try Team Seth, but can I just say that I’m kinda glad you didn’t “get Rob.” That’s one less in the huge line!! ;) But only diehards can love Rob even when he looks like a wonky-leg foal! (see today’s LTR!) But thanks for posting these great vids! That really makes my day!!!!

    • MidnightCougar

      Very nicely said robsfuturemate; ditto from me! :)

      • robsfuturemate

        Thanks MC!! I got a little confused since your avi is different over here than on LTR! Time to find your own pic maybe and help a girl out?! ;)

        • MidnightCougar

          I know, actually TeamSeth has lead me to the Gravatar site, but it doesn’t like my screen name, says it’s already used?? So, I guess I’ll have to fool around with it a bit & see what I can do. (I wonder if my user name can be different from my screen name??) I guess when I get it workinf, I will have go through my “small” ;) Robporn collection, to find the right avi pic for MC! :)

        • MidnightCougar

          • MidnightCougar

            Whoops, double-post fail on me!:( Wierd though b/c I only hit submit comment once? Are those hackers still screwing things up here at LTT?

          • robsfuturemate

            LTT just decided that this is the perfect post for double the Robporn collection, MC!!!

          • MidnightCougar

            Yep, I agree, LTT needs some double-your-pleasure Robporn, & since I’m now up & running with Gravatar, I picked one of my favorite Jawporn pics for my avi! :)

          • robsfuturemate

            Nice! I like it!!

            Did you mention before that you were Canadian? And does that mean that you can try and stalk the BD location?!

          • MidnightCougar

            Yes, I am Canadian, but I live on the opposite side of the country from Vancouver, BC. Although, I have a cousin in Vancouver who told me I have free accomodations anytime I want, so I’m thinking I’m due for a vacation there, say about February! ;)

  • operarose

    I’m sorry. I’m just not that into Rob. I do, however, find myself falling for Kristen Stewart’s brother.

    • TeamSeth

      zing!

  • JennB

    I love all of those interviews. I love his personality. I’m glad they had that interview for Eclipse with a friend (right? aren’t they friends from before-fame?) because otherwise he was so grumpy during the press tours!
    Nice to see smiling Rob. Makes me happy!
    But the MTV interview is weird because he looks like he has no torso due to the way they’re sitting on that shiteous couch and I presume the camera angles.

    Dear Rob:
    I promise that if I ever get to meet you that I will not scream, I will ask you about redonkulous nicknames and the length of your toenails. I’ll also happily bring you some new socks & underwear. If you come to my house for Christmas, there’s sure to be some in your stocking because that’s what Santa brings us, especially this year as we have no money for toys. Boo hoo.
    If I do get to meet you someday, though, I might throw up on your shoes.
    Love you long time!
    JennB

  • http://www.twitter.com/ScienceGeek91 Rob’s slow mo’ strut

    *Sigh* I loved that MySpace Artist on Artist interview. I don’t know if this is because of my love for both Rob and Hayley (as well as Paramore) but do you guys detect some sorta chemistry between the two? Can I say Robley? HayRob? Or was that a bit too much?

    I melt the moment he asks her where she’s from. That seems like such a ‘getting to know you’ type of question. Oh and Rob, I also love the way she says ‘here’ in Decode. Wow, we have ONE thing in common! Amazing.

    Team Seth, keep watching more interviews like this. I’m sure within no time you’ll be unconditionally and irrevocably in love (yes, had to got there) with Rob :)

    Happy Friday y’all!

    • http://mainericefamily.blogspot.com no cool name

      Thought the same thing about their chemistry. Too cute. I feel like I could get behind Robley more than Robsten.

      But whatever. I can’t believe I’m weighing in on the relativ merits of a Robley v. Robsten relationship.

      • http://mainericefamily.blogspot.com no cool name

        There is seriously something up here. I got four thumbs up the second I posted this. How am I supposed to decide how clever I am on any given day with all this thumbs upping happening willy-nilly out of control?

        • Midnight_Cyn

          The site just KNOWs how clever you are! Enjoy!

          • TeamSeth

            Truth!

    • Luludee

      It’s not just you. She was majorly crushing there and played it pretty damn cool. And that’s the most “comfortable” I think I’ve ever seen Rob.

      CONFESSION: This was my first time watching that Artist on Artist interview. I think I avoided it for a long time for reasons unknown…probably because I’m trying to keep my Robsession at a healthy 4.
      BUT, since about one minute into that video, I was planning on commenting that Haley defs “gets” Rob. Now if she could only get a more flattering hair color…

      Also, Haley looks way younger than I thought she was. But having almost zero knowledge about Paramore and having only heard maybe 2 of their songs, this shouldn’t really be a surprise.

      • ChillinWithCullens

        Yah, am I the only one who thought the Hayley interview contained all the flirty awkwardness of a first date? And Rob brings up this interview a few times in the Twilight commentary! It’s “normal” that I know that, right?

        • robsfuturemate

          “Garden Burger sounds like something you get out of a garden.”

          Love that bit! Yes Rob, you do get veggies from the garden! (be it yard or garden!)

        • TeamSeth

          You’re right! I knew that I heard that garden burger thing before!!!! I even was like, “I think I’ve actually seen this interview… hm.” But I would’ve remembered the coke part. I’m not sure why, I think it was that the editor cut to so many close ups on it, an oral fixation perhaps? I just thought it was so hilarious.

          Anyway, totally normal. Doesn’t he mention rabbits, or maybe Cougwicke does, not really understanding that garden in England means the backyard as well and not just the proper vegetable or flower garden. (unless all my english friends were lying)

          • robsfuturemate

            Okay, since the DVD was already in the player (LTR also had Twi Com thoughts), I looked it up. No mention of rabbits there but that does sound vaguely familar. What I thought was kinda funny was how Kristen and Cougwicke both got all flirty-like when Hayley was mentioned! Rob seemed clueless, as always!

          • P.S.

            Backyard Burger – yeah, that doesn’t sound so good.

          • TeamSeth

            Actually, I think Backyard Burgers is a burger chain. That’s funny. Also, good thing he doesn’t say rabbits or else LTT would be all over that and the vibrator comparisons. Or wait, maybe I wish he did say that. Hm. But yes, they do crank up the charm. Perhaps… perhaps Robley did occur, for a hot second. In the sound proof recording studio in LA? Rob did mention in another interview that he never left LA so he didn’t know if anyone knew who he was outside of there… ROBLEY LIVES!

  • JustGoWithIt

    Twilight obsession without Robsession. It is an interesting thought. They are pretty linked for me.
    Team Seth that is my kind of research though!
    Too bad I don’t have time to watch all the clips.

  • celestialchic

    I am now Team Teamseth. I heart this post! I watched all the interviews and I still don’t “get Rob”. If anything it made me even more confused why people robsess. I feel really guilty, but he just doesn’t do it for me. Thumbs down at will . . . :(

    • TeamSeth

      *hugs* You’re not alone! On my original post I found there’s a lot of people like us. Team TeamSeth? hehehe

  • Pfluffy

    Really fun post and I love all the these Rob interviews (especially the Artist on Artist). Although I had never seen the Buddha one, umm great story Rob – wish I would have had a daydream Buddha when I was back in college taking a certain biology exam.

  • Stacey

    Woo hoo! Loved this followup letter & related videos, my friend! I do enjoy Rob, but I enjoy lots of things! So many celebrity crushes…

    My favorite parts of you letter, without a doubt, the mention of Peep Show and Sam’s shirts. :0) You have very good taste and i’ll keep working on you about Rob. WFE is coming and I have a feeling it will be a game changer.

    • TeamSeth

      Game on!

    • MidnightCougar

      Stacey, I just finished reading WFE & Bel Ami, I really enjoyed both novels. I think Rob is going to be perfect for both Jacob & Georges!

      • robsfuturemate

        Both great! Although it is so much easier to love Jacob (Jankowski, that is), I can’t wait to see so “much” of Georges! Should be great! And I think it will help prove that Rob has what it takes to be a great actor.

        • MidnightCougar

          I totally agree. Jacob Jankowski is such a great character, I really think Rob has the potential to make this a great movie! & as for Bel Ami, well I have to admit I’m looking forward to the naughty sex scenes, he said some of them they taped NAKED!! ;)

          • TeamSeth

            Okay, it has to be said. Your avi is fuck hawt. Um, yes, I know it’s Rob. It kind of resembles James Dean.

          • MidnightCougar

            Thanks to you TeamSeth, I did finally get over to Gravatar & set up an account, & of course, I chose my favorite Jawporn pic of Rob, & yes, I totes agree it is “fuck hawt”! You know, he kind of does resemble James Dean in this pic; see now I’ve given you another reason to sway over to our Rob-side!;)

          • TeamSeth

            Aw, that’s sweet… but I think we all knwo who I’m Jonesin’ for. Then I just realized you said “Naked” and now Imma have to watch Bel Ami. Is that good or beautiful friend?

          • MidnightCougar

            Technically it means “beautiful friend”, but in literature it is inferred to mean, “It’s a kind of old fashioned term for ‘lover’ – in particular, the sometimes secret lover of a lady who might have a husband or fiance and her ‘bel ami’ might be termed a little something on the side. It usually refers, at least in literature anyway, to a younger stud taking care of the sentimental and fleshly needs of an older and socially superior woman. Kind of like, in modern terms, the society lady having a Thingie with the pool guy.” ;)

  • TeamJacobEdward

    Off topic: I just spotted a Charlie/Billy Burke doppelganger at my work! Some guy working on some construction we’re doing looks like a tall Charlie, sans stash. I immediately thought of TS and had to share.

    • TeamSeth

      Gasp! PHOTO!

      • TeamJacobEdward

        Yeah I wanted to! But I didn’t have my phone on me, & he was heading to another floor. I could have followed him, but what good would that do with no camera, plus I missed the elevator and don’t know what floors of the building are being worked on. I tried. I kept my phone on me the rest of the day and took an extra trip to the cafe and to the bathroom I didn’t need just in case he was roaming the hallways again, but no luck…

        That’s #normal…right?

        Maybe he’ll be around Monday.

  • Janetrigs

    THUMBS DOWN to me. I can’t see any of these videos. :(

    • JodieO

      Thumbs down to your continued sobriety. All those people on Twitter are getting too big for their britches.

      • MidnightCougar

        Exactly why I don’t do Twitter. Don’t have the patience for the BS.

  • kristen’s bestie

    Ahhh! TS – Love you, love your letter. I’m sorry you still don’t get it, but you are not the first gal I know that doesn’t get it. But, I’m so glad you tried. That is more than what most would have done.
    And I’m sorry that Rob reminds you of Mike C. That is a strike out when someone reminds you of some loser from your past that you just want to forget!

  • The Old One

    Glad to see you took your homework seriously, TeamSeth! I think maybe your brain doesn’t work like everyone else’s, like maybe you’re on AM and everyone else is on FM? Where have I heard that before?

    Conclusions: 1) Steve Jones is hot, agreed. 2) We all just moved up one place in line, thanks! 3) Rob would wear Gap beige corduroy borrowed from his girlfriend.

    • TeamSeth

      Well, I wasn’t in line before, so I’m not sure on that one. :(

      And the beige cord comment… hm, that’s not helping the TeamSeth getting Rob cause. I suppose that’s the point though ;)

    • LattersBaby

      TTO: Sorry to be off topic, but I saw your comment on MotU. What’s up with all those people who think Bella should quit her job and keep his name. Really? Really?
      Just wanted to thank you for getting that comment in there.

      • drsaka

        Good question Latters and good comment TOO.

        • LattersBaby

          Thank you! I thought I was going nuts there.

      • robsfuturemate

        Seriously got to read this soon!!

  • Midnight_Cyn

    Happy Friday everyone…GREAT investigative work & post TS!
    Personally, I love Eddie..always have, always will! Besides he is more my age. :) I will leave Rob to all you “youngsters”….

  • TeamJacobEdward

    DOWN THUMBS to me: I keep trying to reply to others comments but when I hit “submit” they disappear. I guess I’m being punished by the hackers. No cavorting with the cool LTTers

    PS: Great post TS! Psst… When I first found out Ron was cast as Edward, I wanted to demand a recast of Edward. But then through super schmexy photo shoots and interviews I found he TOTALLY did it for me (most of the time). I realized then that Rob’s hotness is a slow burn. It creeps up on you and you don’t realize it until you’re on fire. :)

    • http://mainericefamily.blogspot.com no cool name

      That’s been happening to me this week, too (the disappearing comments). Lame. I hate hackers (because I am choosing to blame them).

      • TeamJacobEdward

        Complaining must have worked because I’ve been able to reply a couple times now this afternoon (now watch this won’t post because I said that)… but now I don’t remember what I was going to say and to whom this morning. *sigh* But yeah it happened to me a couple times the other day too.

  • TeamSeth

    First of all, thank you to everyone for your kind words and support.

    Second, I gave UC/Moon a pic of Steve Jones topless, but there wasn’t space because she embedded the videos. Please enjoy.

    • The Old One

      OMG!

    • Luludee

      Haven’t watched his interview yet, but I’m always up for checking out topless dudes! <—that doesn't sound creepy at all, does it!
      Anyway, he's hot!

    • P.S.

      Nice. Now who’s Steve Jones again? (Sorry, I’ve been skimming over anything that’s not Rob.)

      • TeamSeth

        He’s a beautiful Welsh man (born in ’77) who was a model for Esquire then started working in TV doing some acting etc. He now (best to my knowledge) is interviewer/host/spokesperson for T4 and was recently (currently?) in Equis replacing Daniel Radcliffe as the naked horse lover. (that’s what the photo is from)

        He’s also a notorious ladies man, but really, so are all the Welsh in their prime. Ryan Giggs, Sheen Peen… I mean, come on. But, I don’t care. It does not matter. I just want to stare lustily at photos and videos of him and create fan(tasy) fiction of him in my mind to pass the time at work. (done and done)

        :)

    • http://mainericefamily.blogspot.com no cool name

      See? The Welsh are awesome!

    • Stacey

      Stece Jones equals VERY NICE! Thank you Team Seth! I have a new celebrity crush!

  • Midnight_Cyn

    Totally off topic:
    Dear Mother Nature: Perhaps you are confused? Its October..NOT December, so please stop with the snowflakes that I see falling outside my window. Thank You!
    P.S. Feel free to skip Winter and go straight to Spring…
    (Although it does increase my desire to snuggle even more with Blanket Eddie, yeah it does :) )

    • JodieO

      It’s not snowing here. Neener!

      • Midnight_Cyn

        Neener????

        • TeamSeth

          It’s a little kid taunt. Something like, “Neener, neener, neener! Pumpkin Eater!”

    • http://mainericefamily.blogspot.com no cool name

      Cyn, we MUST live close, because I saw the snowflakes outside my window, too.

      • Midnight_Cyn

        NCN..closer than you know.. ;)

        • http://mainericefamily.blogspot.com no cool name

          What?? If I look out my window and wave can you see me?

          • Midnight_Cyn

            LOL..I wish! Then maybe I could hold up a sign saying I need brownies BAD!! :) But we are really close…its nice knowing a fellow LTT’er is nearby! Hugs!

          • Midnight_Cyn

            JodieO and NCN: Totally off topic but Sunday River just opened! (I guess its not Fall anymore)..so Maine has the first ski resort open in the country! Yeah Maine!!!!

          • TeamJacobEdward

            Cyn we (Minnesota) had a huge Halloween blizzard in 1991… Sometimes mother nature gets confuzzled.

            Oh and PLEASE if any of you Maine LTTers (well snort LTTers) get the itch to hit the slopes be careful! That’s how I broke my neck and injured my brain in January. (and I am…was a good skier)

            PS: I’m jealous of you who have nearby LTTers I think I’m holding up MN (if not the whole upper Midwest) all by myself. Maybe I’ll have to orchestrate a LTT shopping trip to Mall of America or something.

          • Midnight_Cyn

            @TJE: I agree about the skiing..course I can’t blame my TBI on something as cool like skiing…but all my kids ski and I am terrified when they go EVERYTIME..
            As far as not having an LTT’ers nearby, until NCN, JodieO was the only other one in Maine (that I know of) and she is quite far away, but with that said..I have found that it really doesn’t matter where any of us live..we are all together here and probably closer to each friendship wise than most neighbors are… :)

          • P.S.

            I’m picturing NCN knocking on all of her neighbor’s doors tonight, seeing if anyone comes wrapped in an Eddie blanket :). Also TJE, if you orchestrate an upper midwest get together, I’m there!

          • TeamJacobEdward

            All too true Cyn that I am closer to you guys here than my neighbors who are nice but I barely know. That being said, I’d still LOVE to hang out with a bunch of LTTers. :) That sounds like a blast to me.

            TBIs suck. Don’t recommend them. Mine isn’t what yours is and I never want to go through this again even though they tell me I still have a good chance at getting back to (my) normal eventually. And it really doesn’t make the pain better getting a TBI doing something “cool.” :( Hope you’re doing okay. Think about you lots.

          • TeamSeth

            “So what, you were following me?”

          • Midnight_Cyn

            @P.S. You had rolling on the floor with that comment..actually I tripped over the dog cause I was laughing so hard when I got up…but seriously could so picture NCN doing that..I will help her to know its me.. I am the only one who wears shorts/Twi-tee’s, barefoot (even in the winter) may still have glitter on me from the wedding and my Eddie blanket ..there NCN..looking forward to meeting you :) hope the brownies don’t freeze!
            @TJE: I often think of you to and hope everyday finds you more better! (Yeah I really talk like that) also, you are always welcome in Maine…we WON’T be doing any skiing..just munching on Brownies and watching Twi-movies!! xox

          • P.S.

            I think the glitter is the key here! NCN, go to your local craft store and just start following the trail of glitter. It will lead you straight to Cyn’s door!

  • soldiersarah

    1st comment on LTT!!
    i love all you lot and have never felt cool/funny enough to get in on the action, but its been going on for too long, i had to man up and do it!
    i find with rob, i dont find him sexy in photos, i feel arkward watchin him in interviews in america, but whens hes being interviewed by a brit . . . MMmmmm!!
    WHAT IS THAT!
    he seems more at ease or something, very funny, very sexy!

    • http://letterstotwilight.com unintendedchoice

      so glad you “manned up!”
      whoo hoo!! Welcome!
      XO

    • TeamSeth

      Well, I think in this instance with Steve Jones, it’s simply Steve’s beautiful voice that’s a panty-dropper. “Duvet” “lurking” “adult movies” “you big movie star!” “knickerblocker” etc. (oops, added that last one. But it would make my life if he said it)

      And that smile.
      And that laugh.
      And the fact that he’s rocking the high five. (Bringing it back!)

      Steve Jones, you are what lust should be!

      Back to Rob, yes, he does seem more relaxed. Maybe he’s not giggling inside whenever someone says “here” so he can focus better? Who knows. I’m going to go watch the Steve Jones interview again…

      • TeamJacobEdward

        Did you say, “knickerblocker” instead of “knickerbocker” on purpose? Because it made me giggle a little. :)

        Oh knickers!

        • TeamSeth

          Indeed I did. The term was coined a few weeks ago when the meaning of the word “knicker” was cleared up as being pants and not underpants (as I’d thought it was–female panties to be precise). “Don’t get your knickers in a knot” So, then knickers and Edward were brought up, and him being a knickerblocker (i.e. box blocker) was mentioned. It was a good comment board day. Very enjoyable.

          • TeamJacobEdward

            *sigh*

            I know. It was me you were talking to about it. It was one of my favorites because it was such a fun discussion… and the best part was the term “knickerblocker.” (makes me giggle every time)

            But apparently it meant more to me than out did to you because I remember it was you and you don’t remember it was me.

            hehehe

          • TeamSeth

            I’m such a fail. :'(

    • TeamJacobEdward

      Hey SS! Your bug avi floats! No wings. Just curly hair and levitation. Looks like the little guy is surprised with his own trick.

      Oh and welcome.

      That’s all. :)

  • Midnight_Cyn

    Confession time: I only started taping/watching Vampire Diaries because of Damon…but I just caught up on the shows and yes Damon’s eyes are still making me swoon (don’t worry I turned over Blanket Eddie while viewing) but the story is actually pretty good..I feel so guilty :(….

    • TeamSeth

      Guilty?! WHYYY?! Damon is SO hot. His eyes are so swoon. He is my reason for being alive, if that’s what I am. He is sexy times on a platter. He is throwing his scotch into the fire like a great lord in a passionate rage. He is pushing the limits with Elena to prove her wrong. He’s undergoing emotional changes. He’s ripping off Katherine’s clothing. He’s standing there topless, staring with passion and desire at the camera.

      Don’t you dare feel guilty.

      • theseviolentdelights

        I don’t watch VD – but that just totally sold me on it. Sign me up! ;)

        • TeamSeth

          (we like to shorthand it VampDi, since VD has, um, other commonly known meanings…)

          • theseviolentdelights

            Oh god, just googled it (slow mind today)…VampDi it is.

      • Midnight_Cyn

        TS, not only do I NOT feel guilty any more..but I had to take a cold shower when I finished reading what you wrote….

      • Luludee

        So, I’ve been a bit spotty in my VampDi viewing and haven’t seen one in like 3 or 4 weeks now. I just decided the other day that I would just give it up and stick with the shows I’ve already wasted devoted so much of my time to already, but your glorious description has me re-thinking that. Tomorrow afternoon will now be somewhat devoted to Hulu.

      • TeamSeth

        Wow, I didn’t realize how provocative that was ;)

        Then I reread it while having the photo of shirtless Damon open (see links in comment way way above about the Billy Burke lookalike).

        COLD SHOWER PRONTO! Or maybe one of those Rob toothbrush bundles…

      • soldiersarah

        mmmmmm, no more LTT for me, bedtime me thinks!!

    • Stacey

      Oh the Vamp Di and Somerhalder!!! I do love it! (A lot of you know that already) Last night’s episode, just wow. Not going to spoil anything of that one. I just wrote my part of the recap this morning and I am still thinking about it! :0)

      • Midnight_Cyn

        Stacy, your so right..I was only watching it cause of “Damon” but last nights episode that I taped and just watched was really awesome, enough so that I didn’t hit delete..umm..by accident, so I guess I will just have to watch it again tonight and maybe everyday til the next one so I can remember it ! It will be tough, but I will just have to “get through it” tee hee..

      • TeamSeth

        Yes! Off to read the entry now :D

      • Midnight_Cyn

        “wrote recap”…umm HELLO..where???? I want to read! :)

      • Stacey

        Recap should be up Monday. Snow White Drifted is watching it this weekend, so she can add her observations. Plus, we need Somerhalder picts from the episode. We did add a funny spoof post on Thursday. Snow White Drifted did some hilarious manips. We have all the guys covered in those. :0)

  • TeamSeth

    Oh, and The Old One, please explain the Buddha interview to me. I don’t get it at all.

    • robsfuturemate

      So, obvi not The Old One and maybe not wise enough to answer but here’s my take on it.

      Rob is telling one of his “stories” to someone/thing that likes celebs to tell outrageous stories (i think). The problem here is that Rob tells these kind of stories a lot and he sounds pretty believable most of the time!

      Anone else have thoughts on this?

      • LatersBaby

        I’m not sure, RFM. I don’t think he is trying to be outrageous or facetious in this case. I think this is just a Rob story and it is getting framed as this crazy story.

        • LatersBaby

          Okay–I looked it up. This is a segment on the popular Canadian TV show, The Hour, but the name has been changed to Tonight. In one segment of the show, celebrities look into the camera and share their best personal story. Maybe Rob saw Buddha, maybe Rob did ask for and was granted amazing requests (like having all that magicness), maybe–like us–Rob became obsessed with a person and that person dominated his thoughts.

          Oh, Rob! *in my best Laura Petrie voice*

      • P.S.

        Your theory sounds about right. I cannot believe he thought of that off the top of his head! Things that make you go hmmmm……….

      • TeamSeth

        Hm… I don’t know. Sometimes I tell stories that are awkward and untrue. And sometimes I tell stories that are awkward and true. I was sort of hoping at the end Rob would say, “And then I found a fiver.” and we’d know that it wasn’t a real story. But alas.

        Also, after a Manhattan, a tawny port, and a scotch, I would like to say, Rob is really hot. Not as hot as Steve Jones, who forever has my lust, but still quite, quite hot.

        • robsfuturemate

          That’s the mystery of Rob!! You can never really tell when he’s telling the truth or a story. He is a great storyteller either way! But I’m still opting for made up, he’s pretty clever and quick-witted(?).

          TS-if that’s what it takes to get you to see the truth!! And I think TomStu would approve ;)

  • Stacey

    I had a Mike C. Only his namw was James (go figure, like evil Twilight James. He was evil too!). He looked and acted like Logan from the Gilmore Girls. Now I get angry at every show and movie that guy is in. I understand your Rob dilemma.

    • TeamJacobEdward

      Gilmore Girls. Memories. Gilmore Girls was like Dawson’s Creek where the girl used big words… And they talked fast. I think of Gilmore Girls every time I watch the show Parenthood because the mom from Gilmore Girls of on there. They use big words too sometimes, it’s where I learned the word pulchertudinous (physically beautiful). My 3 year old heard me saying the word committing it to memory because I’m geekish like that and asked me what poker-tud-nis (how she said it) was. I told her out meant beautiful and asked her, “isn’t it a cool word?” She nodded. Thought for a minute, and said, “mommy you’re poker-tud-nis” Not only did my heart completely melt, but I laughed so hard at the sound of a 3 year old in that little voice trying to say such a big word.

      Sorry got a bit off topic. My mind jumps around. (great now that song is in my head)

      • http://mainericefamily.blogspot.com no cool name

        Love it!!

  • BrOoKe LoCkArT

    I sometimes enjoy the Rob. However, every time he runs his big claw hand through his hair it kinda kills it for me. He’s just soooo awkward.

    Great post TeamSeth!

  • Pattygirl

    Team seth,

    Liking someone is personal, I don’t try to influence anyone if I like a band, singer etc. If you or anyone don’t get Rob than its your problem not Rob or anyonelse. Thx for the videos!.

  • http://allergictorobertpattinson.blogspot.com/ Rob’s Bitch

    Wow, great effort Team Seth!

    You have made it successfully through Level 1 of Rob Indoctrination.

    Please step forward to begin Level 2 – we promise, you won’t feel a thing (bwhahahahahahahaha).
