Year in review and our 2011 Twilight Resolutions!

Dear LTT-ers,

We started a tradition when we first began this blog in 2008 by making resolutions for the year ahead. We made plans for ourselves and the blogs and have kept tract of our progress. It’s amazing how many we’ve made happen and how many we’ve failed miserably on. So of course it’s New Year’s Eve 2010 and time to revisit our 2010 resolutions and make our resolutions for the next year…

Our 2010 Resolutions…

1. Actually get ON the red carpet at the Eclipse premiere and not be standing across the street trying to figure out if that’s Rob’s hair or Mike Welch on stilts that the girls are screaming for. Verdict = half FAIL!

While we weren’t OFFICIALLY on the red carpet to interview or represent the fans we were VERY close, close enough to tell it was definitely Rob and NOT Mike Welch. We even had a gaggle of LTT-ers there in multiple locations so we had ALL angles covered. Sadly, we did not get to interview anyone to ask what they order at the Olive Garden BUT there’s always next year! 2011!!
Moon/UC: .5 People Who Want Us to Fail: .5

2. Get a picture with Kaleb Nation to commemorate meeting him instead of running into him accidentally while looking for a bathroom and then totally forgetting to get a picture since we were too busy thinking about not peeing our pants. Verdict = FAIL!

So we meet up with Kaleb like 320489324 times this year: DVD release, Eclipse Con, Premiere. but NO pic. We even got pictures with the girls from The Twilight Lexicon and Larry 411 and yet no TwiGuy. FAIL!  Those moments will live on in our hearts forever though.
Moon/UC: .5 People Who Want Us to Fail: 1.5

3. Watch Ashley Greene’s sex tape when she inevitably makes one and live blog it… blow by blow… um, that’s what she said? Verdict = FAIL!

Since Ashley’s with Joe Jonas this might actually be more like live blogging their couples bible study video or his coming out video at next year’s Pride…
Moon/UC: .5 People Who Want Us to Fail: 2.5

4. Meet Stephenie Meyer and not have her call the police on us Verdict = WIN x a gabillion!!!

We all know how this turned out… I think we can forget the rest and say 2010 was a huge WIN for LTT based on this alone!
Moon/UC: 1.5 People Who Want Us to Fail: 2.5

5. Take it up a notch with our video skills & perhaps write a theme song for them. Verdict = WIN!

We did have “In the car with UC” but never did upload “Under the Loquat Tree with Moon” (which does exist… in my yard). We did have videos from our meeting with Stephenie (in our hotel room), from the premiere, getting interviewed on tv, video for VH1 that never aired, and some others…
Moon/UC: 2.5 People Who Want Us to Fail: 2.5

tie ball game folks…..

6. Only see New Moon and Eclipse in the theater in numbers below the teens – This goes for Eclipse as well… When the popcorn guy knows you by name it’s time to seek help and a shock collar. Verdict = WIN!

I only saw Eclipse 1 and 3/4ths times in the theater and UC saw it twice! So we WIN!
Moon/UC: 3.5 People Who Want Us to Fail: 2.5

Preparing for the fall out

7. Host a peace summit in Copenhagen between big name players in the Robsten vs Nonsten world and decide if we can all finally get along. Maybe if we come to an agreement we can sing we are the Rob together. Verdict = FAIL!

SO fail… we all know how that went down, UC got called a Nonsten devil, I was called everything under the sun, people were sued, people quit being friends, nasty things were said all over the interwebs. And nothing was resolved expect for Robsten vs Nonsten arguably being resposible for taking the fun out of the fandom. World peace may not actually be possible. If they stayed together or they broke up… it would just get uglier. So much so we may need to build a fall out shelter from the war that will ensue between the Krisbian suicide bombers and the Rob fans (they need a better name). We gotta be prepared and think ahead. In fact that’s the new fandom motto and we’re not talking tents and autograph books. We’re talking gas masks and bullet proof vests cause shit will get REAL REAL when that happens.

This resolution was SO fail, in  fact, NO ONE got  a win.
Moon/UC: 3.5 People Who Want Us to Fail: 3.5

8. We promise to continue to be controversial. We started writing thus blog because we couldn’t’ believe the lameness of the fandom. We still can’t. So we’ll continue to call it as we see it by KIR, you know: Keeping it Real. Verdict = WIN!

Done and done!! We kept it so real everyone got called names not just us. Whew.
Moon/UC: 4.5 People Who Want Us to Fail: 3.5

9. Meet Big Daddy Lautner. Tell him we love him more than the entire cast combined and would love to have a conversation over a Filet O Fish. Try not to act surprised when he has NO idea who we are. Verdict = FAIL!

This is the saddest fail of my life cause all  of that is true, we’re not even joking in that resolution. We just want to have a heart-to-heart over breaksticks and endless salad with Big Daddy. We want him to give us life advice, to tell us which label carries the best Big and Tall collection, to find out if he’s mastered making the Filet o Fish at home, to watch “the game,” to tell us which fast food app is the best. This is yet another reason we need to get on that carpet for Breaking Dawn, the off chance we would get to meet Big Daddy. That, or I need to step up my Olive Garden game. There are still a few locations in LA county I haven’t been to. New Year’s Day 2011!!
Moon/UC: 4.5 People Who Want Us to Fail: 4.510. Roll out our new blog design. Yes, yes we are finally getting rid of the old look and moving over to join the forum on our very own server space. Verdict = WIN!

WIN WIN WIN! This may have taken us till June to roll out and we may have been hacked by some losers in BFE and it may have it’s moments we want to strangle it and we may spend many Sunday mornings fixing it but it happened and we couldn’t be happier!

So let’s get on to our resolutions for 2011!

HAHAHA I love fan posters!!

1. Breaking Dawn Part 1 (and 2) RED CARPET! – Our next logical step would be to be ON the carpet officially. We need to be close enough to count Mike Welch’s nose hairs, to see if our gaydar is pinging correctly on a few people AND to offer a prayer of protection and success for Kellan. He’s appreciate a laying on of hands in the middle of the carpet. This is one of our last chances to make this happen. Come on cosmic justice of the universe, don’t fail us now!!!

2. Meet Big Daddy – We’re gonna carry this one over from last year because our blogging life really can’t be complete without meeting the man, the mystery, the legend behind Taylor Lautner. We promise to spring from the cannolli for dessert if we get to meet sir!

3. Make another appearance at this year’s Comic Con in San Diego. 2009 Comic Con was a blast: throwing elbows, seeing all the new footage from NEW MOON (wow, that was forever ago). With Breaking Dawn being filmed NOW you know there’s gonna be something good at this summer’s Comic Con and we aim to be there!

Your turn Moon!

4. Since UC got to meet and interview Jackson Rathbone and be bequeathed the most unfortunate name of: Superfan, Moon too must undergo the embarrassment of being called  Twilight Superfan in 2011 by interviewing Kellan Lutz or another 2nd tier cast member.

5. Host another LTT blow out shin dig during the premiere week of Breaking Dawn Part 1! Preferably with karaoke because “Back to December” will NEVER sound as good as it would at an LTT party after drinking Cougarita’s or Mr. Choice’s special concoction called “Bella’s Blood.”

6. Infiltrate the set of Breaking Dawn for some sort of exclusive access. If Summit or the paparazzi or the people of Baton Rouge won’t bring it to us, we’ll just have to go get it ourselves. Good thing our passports are current, just in case we need to be ready to roll with Summit/Stephenie/Bill Condon/Big Daddy/Kellan or whoever invites us for a visit.

THE bed

7. Go to Venice Beach, break into Cathi’s groovy beach pad and steal THE AUDITION TAPE so that we can finally put to rest her claims of their amazing chemistry for what it really is: 2 awkward young adults making out on an old ladies bed while she tapes it.

Ok, so do you think we can do these? Are we gonna full of WIN next December 2011 or are the people who want us to fail going to be rejoicing? Only time will tell.

Happy New Year!!!!
Moon and UC

    You should get a half point for the meet Big Daddy resolution since you met Dick. I loved quibbling for half points in high school. Yup, I was that kid. But I made up for it by giving a lot of them when I taught high school.

    • Anonymous

      Totes agree. It’s like some sort of grandfather clause or something!

  • Anonymous

    Moon, what if you’re a Superfan, but instead of a 2nd tier cast member you get interviewed by a 3rd tier one? Like whoever plays “new wolf #3″ or “Volturi Witness #17″ in BD. Will that count? (See how obnoxious I am about clarifying points? I must have made my teachers crazy.)

    • MariaCecilia

      Hm, I think that “new wolf no 3″ might actual qualifiy as a FOURTH tier cast memeber. Myself, I would be happy to interview the BD caterer, and get a grip on Rob’s eating habits for future reference… ;-)

    Happy New Year UC & Moon!
    If the Rob fans need a better name, how about we have the nickname “Robsexuals”?
    My resolution for 2011? To win the Resolutionary Challenge 2011!

    • MariaCecilia

      Hmm, how about Rob-ots? Since our eyes get that glazed look, and we move indomitably with our hands stretched out in front of us to grab his..well, whatever we may get our greedy hands on? Yeah, we’re definitely Rob-ots!

      Resolutionary challenge 2011, I believe I am in. Prizes?

  • yertlesmom

    I disagree–People Who Wanted us to Fail get a negative 10! (or higher). Can I resolve to make it to the LTT event for the Breaking Dawn premiere–I would SO love that!!!!!

    • Anonymous

      Me too! *waves hand excitedly* I would loooove hanging out at an LTT event. Even if it is for BD premiere! That way maybe I could cross of one of my Robolutions too!!

    How could you not give yourself plus 10,000 points for meeting Stephenie? Especially since she so clearly made up that whole fan junket thing just to meet YOU guys? I bet Stephenie gave herself plus 10,000 points, too.

    Thanks for the great re-cap! Happy New Year to everyone here at LTT! Love you gals & thanks for a great 2010! All the best in 2011! <3 MC

    Happy New Year, UC and Moon! Thanks for another wonderful year of Buttcrack Santa, Tweed Serious, and That’s Normal.

    Your inside jokes and irreverent take on the fandom are two of the things I love most about LTT, so I’m giving you a perfect 10 on your #8 resolution from 2010. You gals rock!

    Your 2011 resolution that made me lol the most was, predictably, #7: calling out the Cougarita’s Robsten tape for what it is: “2 awkward young adults making out on an old ladies bed while she tapes it.”

    As for my New Years resolution, I’m with Obava: Resolutionary Challenge 2011, baby!

    • MariaCecilia

      Well, cougar or not, if I had been there I would DEFINITELY have taped it… Why won’t THAT particular sex tape leak, I wonder???

      • LatersBaby

        Because it’s art, not a sex tape, art.

  • Twi-Mom(not like on O)

    Great resolutions girls!! Happy New Year!!

    I have a few of my own.
    1-To actually watch all of my new Eclipse DVD in one sitting w/ SM commentary on. It is a total fan fail I have had it for a week and have not even had the urge to watch it much yet!

    2-To not die this year! Before you freak let me explain!! My sis and I were discussing after death options and I was telling her that I want to be cremated but really have no place special to be spread TWSS. Long story short we got to joking around and she has threatened to take my ashes to Forks and scream “Edward she always loved you and wanted to be with you in death etc.!! I obv. told her I would haunt her for the rest of her life if she did that. In the thoughts of Edward: Can a dead heart feel second hand embarrassed? I might have been reading part of that crappy book that none of us care to have to complete our set last week.

  • MariaCecilia

    I love you guys! You made my 2010 worth living, and I am confident that the same goes for 2011!!
    Let’s have another normal year together?! And now back to the champagne… :-)

    WIN! Happy 2011. Hugs and Love until tomorrow when I HATE again.

  • JustGoWithIt

    First things first. Yes I am alone on LTT, after just scene selecting through my Eclipse DVD, on New Years Eve. Don’t judge, I have small children and didn’t feel like making elaborate babysitter plans to be able to go out. I am however intrigued by adult type New Years plans that don’t involve trying to get large groupings of friends to commit to one party while everyone keeps their options open, or drunken ill-fated make-out sessions with semi-strangers. Like just planning a normal night out, going to see a good movie and going to a restaurant and actually eating.
    My Twilight New Years Resolutions:
    -loose 10 pounds in January, it’s an obvious one, hopefully start out with 5 pounds off each thigh so I can have gap like Kristen Stewart (okay I still wouldn’t have gap), maybe if Robert Pattinson saw me walking down the street he would think I’m sessy – I can imagine Rob likes slightly older women in sensible footwear and small children in tow, right?
    -mark when Breaking Dawn Part One comes out on my calendar in code so that a person would have to already know the significance of that day to know that I’ve marked it on my calendar. Also mark down Harry Potter Part Deux, Water For Elephants, and the new Sookie book come out, because I have broad interests.
    Okay I am out of Twilight related resolutions. Happy New Year all!

    UC & Moon, I have just one thing to say…
    Don’t. Ever. Change.
    Happy 2011.
    That is all.
    (Well, OK 3 things say, now 4…)

  • 86 Rabbit

    UC and Moon, you rocked the new year…again! For the record, I think you can, and will, complete all of your resolutions this year. 2011 will be even more WIN than 2010!

  • LatersBaby

    Hey, You met SM. You could retire now if you wanted…but I’m glad you don’t want to. I’m chanting Big Daddy 2011.

    Happy New Year!

    Excellent post to come back to! I was not eaten by the Volturi in Italy (although I would have liked to meet them). New Year’s resolution: lose weight, be good, meet LTT ladies!

  • Sj_niuph

    2010 Resolutions No. 5. But only if Big Daddy is there to sort out my life, along with the rest of the universe. Failing that, any Ltters on hand will be more than satisfactory. As long as they bring breadsticks and maps to LA fast food outlets.

    I can supply beverages.
