News Dump: Video Explosion, a boyband & our favorite DILF is back!

Dear LTT-ers,

Since things have finally heated up on the Twilight front aka they went back to Vancouver where the own cameras there’s been a deluge of pictures and info and whatnot that we’re just trying to keep up on! Just trying to stay afloat with all of Rob’s nonsense has made this a full time job of alligator wrangling and pondering the deeper meaning of his Vanity Fair interview. Is he joking? Is he sad? What kind of dog IS Martin? There is A LOT going on in Rob world but it’s time to tackle the other folks so let’s take a look at what’s going on in Twiland (kinda like Disneyland minus the churros and general happiness).

Ain’t no lie baby…
The Wolfpack has been longing for the late 90s and the days of boybands like NSYNC, BackStreet Boys and whoever else lived in Florida at that time and met a fat man named Lou. They decided in their spare time to work on their harmonies and found out they were so amazing they formed their very own boyband called 108 Degrees!
That’s the boys on their way to record their soon-to-be hit singles “Bite Bite Bite” and “Imprinting On Your Heart.” Oh, and that’s their manager… Gil “Lou” Birmingham. Looks like Vancouver is the new Orlando.
.

Then I watched the trailer for Kellan’s new film: Love, Wedding, Marriage

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2aOVQw3qhEg&feature=player_embedded

Dude forget Robsten on the bearskin rug give me Kellan on Mandy Moore or give me death. DAYUM. That thing should come with a warning label. Dang. When does this come out?
.

What a sport this guy is…

Accepting his Razzie awards for both Last Airbender AND his portrayal of Jasper. But does it seem to anyone else the mini stroke has affected his mouth again with the marble mouth/southern sorta accent/side talking thing? Also I’m totally crossing my fingers for Nikki Reed to direct a 100 Monkey’s music video. Just ponder the possibilities of that for a few minutes this Friday…
.

 

And the last bit of news that deserves to be talked about but DEFINITELY not the least is… CHRIS WEITZ has joined twitter!

HeckYea I’m following!

I know, take a moment……………… yes, it’s true our favorite director from the Twilight saga has come back to us with a vengeance tweeting about everything, being in Argentina, his CUTE CUTE CUTE kid, answering questions and even responding to our own forum mod JodieO and and78 (those bitches!). Ok, clearly I’m jealous because he hasn’t responded to me and I even foresake ROBERT PATTINSON and his weird alligator magazine cover to tweet Chris instead. BUT WHATEVER I forgive him when he says he’s more like a Mike Welch or Gran and then tweets weird ass pictures of cats. And the mustard pants who could EVER EVER EVER forget the mustard pants? They will go down in Twiforklore and maybe have their own special wing of the Twilight Hall of Fame someday.
.

So enough of my slobbering all over Chris Weitz how about we beg the wolfpack to sing some New Kids on the block for us?

TGIF!
Themoonisdown

Be honest did you tweet naughty things to Chris Weitz (i did!!!)? Are Jackson’s multiple voice personalities started to worry you? Will you catch 108 Degrees when they tour? Does anyone other than me know who Lou Pearlman is?!

Our internet game is ridiculous: LTR, The Forum, Twitter, The Store

 

  • gizmo

    Haha Chris is such a rookie on twitter. He will soon learn not to go to certain places, but this is our time to enjoy his patience and the question marks above his head.
    There’s been several interviews these last few days with Jackson and it looks like that guy is The Last Fun Mohican of the cast. Minus the wolfpack, of course. But they come as a group.
    I can see “Imprinting On Your Heart” breaking all kinds of records. And you KNOW Gil the manager would manage those groupies proudly.

      “Last Fun Mohican”… bwahahaha.

  • Anonymous

    I’m with you on the movie. Mandy Moore, Kellan, and Dr. Quinn… that is EXACTLY my brand of movie. (No, I am no Hollywood snob).
    I know who Lou Pearlman is only because he had that short-lived reality show on ABC when I was in high school with some band that was not NSync, Backstreet Boys, or 98 degrees. And then I think he went to jail? What was that band called? The saddest thing is I can’t remember their name, and I even went to their concert (my town was small and they bothered to show up; the only reason I went to this band I have now forgotten’s concert).

    • efam

      O Town, maybe? Haha…not sure how I remember that.

    • TeamSeth

      I’m trying to think, given I grew up in Orlando and was there for the whole N*Sync protest/trials and Lou Pearlman’s demise…

      There were quite a few bands. Efam may be right, I can’t recall. My guy friend was in a band called Exact. Then there was Take5, who another friend dated one of the members. Hm… Okay, O Town is it for sure. I looked it up. I always thought that was fake though… like a mockery of all the boy bands at the time? Aw, I miss the good ole days of pics in the Orlando Sentinel of Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake jet skiing on the Butler chain of lakes… Aw, and when Shaq and Penny played fro the Magic. And Dwight Johnson… was he the one with the goggles?! *tear* Childhood!!!

      • Anonymous

        I was definitely thinking of O-Town! How could I forget them?! Oh yeah, they were pretty subpar, except for one singer…hmm what was his name? He did a solo CD in the mid-00s that was 1/2 way decent and did Broadway.

        But yes, childhood, those were good times. I think when Britney and Justin broke up that was pretty much the end of an era and may have even been the cause for wars and recession. Imagine what the world would be like now if they’d stayed together…

        Beiber and whatshername Disney have NOTHING on Justin and Brit.

        • TeamSeth

          Beiber cannot even be put into a comparison category with them. I mean, just no. No way.

          Wait did you grow up in Orlando? I thought you were all Canada and Detroit?

            No, I grew up in the North, but the boy band craze seeped into every pore of the U.S. in those days! Your reply just transported me back to those good ol’ days (I feel like an old lady now)

    I want to hear 108 Degrees (or maybe they should name themselves The Wolfpak, spelled all cool-like) sing I’ll Be Loving You Forever. Or maybe that song from their Christmas album where they all rapped, including Joey Mac. Awesome. (Am I the only 30-something loser on here who had that album? Please tell me I’m not…)

      NCN HEY! You’re aliiiive!!!!

      Moment of non-embarrassment/embarrassment: I was in Altamonte Springs one day on SR436 near the Altamonte Mall (don’t worry that you have no clue where that is, suffice it to say it’s a busy 6-lane with a median street) and I was going to drop off my sister (back when we both still lived in OTown, ahem). So, we’re waiting at the light to turn left and in the median I see something shiny. Now, earlier in my life (2 years?) I found a burned CD right outside my car after parking when I was at UF (jorts-free thanks so much) and I picked it up, a sign from above perhaps, popped it into my CD player and BAM! I had the most hilarious mix of mediocre rap and “r&b” to listen to forever! So, after such a positive experience with random CD before, I simply HAD to get this one from the median. It was there for a reason, someone had discarded it. Someone wanted me to find it. So I got out, picked it up, turned it over and it was Millennium by BSB!!!!!!!! Mind you, I was never that into BSB or boy bands (except that I did buy No Strings Attached album). I wiped it down, put it in the player and me and my sister SANG our little hearts out!!!! “Backstreet’s back ALRIGHT!” “All you people can’t you see, can’t you see, how your love’s affecting our reality!” :’-) Aw, memories. Today is such a memory day!

      • JustGoWithIt

        My only random music experience was finding a tape at a rave (that is dating me a few years older than you if I went to raves and you bought an N Sync album, the boy band craze when I was a preteen was NKOTB, which I did not care for, however I did like Vanilla Ice and MC Hammer so I can’t be too uppity about it can I). We played it, and it was a pretty awesome booty bass mix that I got lots of use out of for the next few years.

  • http://twitter.com/tracitalynne Traci Olsen

    I may have to dump whoever is tweeting as (no lie) “Robert Patinsen” in favor of Chris. It pains me to unfollow anyone even remotely Twi, but seriously with the random Twi stuff from 2 years ago. Over and over, on repeat. Sigh.

    In better news, I snortlaughed out loud at myself in the car yesterday when the Classical Station came on and my brain immediately said, “Claire de Lune is great” NORMAL.

    • Anonymous

      Damn you. Now I’m back in Edward’s no-bedroom trying to figure out what all the shit he has taped to his window is.

      Claire de Lune is great. Also easy. If he’d picked another Debussy piece out, Bella would probably not have a clue. Might have guessed Berlioz and humiliated herself, serious lip biting would have followed. He should have challenged her with a different piece. Then she could have guessed “Les sons et les parfums tournent dans l’air du soir, Alfred Cortot, 1930″. Edward probably would have crammed her hands in his pants on the spot (as reward), and let her have her way.

      • TeamSeth

        “Welcome to King Burger where you can have it your way, but don’t get crazy.”

        Anyway, on topic, YES! In the book however, it’s much more explained AND it’s so real to how life goes. It’s always “OMG We have music in common!!!!” when really Bella only knew that music, and not in detail, because her mom went through a phase. I mean, just because you know how to do downward dog, doesn’t make you a yogi! (Renee had a yoga phase too, if you recall) In the book, it was like the first time Edward sees her as having something in common with him, but actually it’s false. She knows some Debussy, great. Sigh.

        I have Twi on my ipod, should I go look up what’s on his window and start a list? Screw work, what’s it matter anyway! Money is so overrated… psshaw!

        • Anonymous

          Oh, TS, I know you have an eye for detail. So, yah, SCREW those paycheck-issuing bastard-o people. Could you look on Edward’s window? The one nearest the flatscreen. Lots of stuff on it. But what? Also, could you take a look of what’s plastered all over the walls, in the hallway outside his door? I’ve tried to take a gander before, but no luck.

          • TeamSeth

            Okay, so I’m in it now (no sound but still quoting all the lines… Here comes the human!)

            Okay, so not able to see the window closest to the flatscreen yet, but the wall w/ crap on it is really like an IKEA drawer unit situation with what looks like long notes (I’m going with song lyrics) and then random photos… (I’m going with the creepy ones of Bella while she’s sleeping, though you’d think he’d cover those up before showing her his room)

            Okay! Window time. It looks like papers hanging up to dry… like photos?

            Yeah, the screen is too small. I’m giving up. Sorry. I’m going to go with it’s his stalker wall. Like everything and anything that was posted on Gossip Girl about Bella is up there.

  • ladyofthemeadow

    Since Twilight movies won’t satisfy my pervyness, I am driven to salivate over Kellan. And salivate I did. I’d really love to be Mandy Moore’s BFF and ask her about what it’s like to writhe around with Kellan.

    But just for the record, it’s because Twilight is PG13. No offence, Rob. I’d prefer to see and hear what it’s like to writhe around with you.

    Oh Jackson, I love that you love your Razzie (even though you thought the award was a strawberry: razzie = raspberry). It made me forgive you for the hair and the side-mouth talking. And there may be more awards just like it in the future, when the 100 Monkeys video directed by Nikki comes out. Can’t wait!

    • Anonymous

      Isn’t Jackson adorable? I loved that interview. I don’t know what it was, but I became a Jackson fan after seeing that clip. For years, he’s just been another character in Twilight, yapping it up & taking screen time away from Rob. But something about that interview. His white Havana hat with black ribbon. Shows chutzpah, especially with the iPod cord hanging off of it. And I love his casual style, I bet he never makes his bed or remembers to close up the box of white cheddar Cheezits when he’s done. Or maybe I’m in love because Jackson/his band is now a writer. I always fall hard for writers, even when I realize they aren’t writers — just pot heads with book ideas they can’t remember. I’m such a sucker for that.

      • Goldberrybecca

        welcome to my world!!! It’s kinda fun, albeit lonely, being a fan of Jacksper. Even his little side talking bits, that come and go at random, are endearing. ;-)

          I used to think it would be fun to have dinner (or breakfast) with Rob, but he’s never available and never responds to my LTR invites.
          I mean, don’t get me wrong, if Rob shows up ever, he’s got priority, But Jackson…now I’m thinking it would be fun to have a meal with him. I don’t think he’d be a picky eater, I think I could slap together a PB&J and cut off the crust and he would be ecstatic. Just so mellow. He’s my brand of pot. Slow, mellow, steady, no lack of control side effects that I hate so much. I just want to roll him up and smoke him! Normal, right??

          • TeamSeth

            Well, that certainly gives new meaning to “Put that in your pipe and smoke it.”

            Jackson gives new meaning to just about everything. Watched the interview again – “red union jack suit with butt flap” – sigh. Where has he been all my life.

            I went to the website to try to purchase the novel. Sadly, not for sale yet. It releases April 1st so many fans are convinced it is a practical joke. Other fans are convinced it is in the choose-your-own-adventure genre.

            You watch in horror as Riley joins the attack against Edward. With Seth out for the count it’s two against one. Do you:
            Stab yourself in the stomache with something sharp like the Third Wife. (turn to page 16)
            Poke your finger with something sharp, it seemed to do the trick before. (turn to page 57)
            Let Edward handle it. He’s a strong and sexy man. (turn to page 99)

            Page 99
            “Both you and Edward die. Victoria and Riley join the newborns to kill the rest of your family.”

    so yeah I love the Wolfpack picture. I WISH they’d have got this on video cos it would look FAB them all walking down the street in super SLO MO with ” Oh yeah” by yello playing in the background or “The Boys are Back in Town”

    Random Twi-Purge: Whenever I hear Bronson Peletier talk in interviews – he sounds just like Joe Pesci to me. Even the way he moves his mouth I keep thinking – Joe Pesci. Just me?

      Chicka-chicka-ahhhh. My vote for Wolfpack intro is always Yello. Only that would be a great song for any of the action sequences in Eclipse, too. Or back to Edward’s bedroom. Bella stating “Oh Yeah great” and Edward replying “yah, 80’s Swedish electronica, I remember doing lines with James Spader to this song back in LA, back when sparkling was rad.”

I’ve been watching Twilight on my commutes home for the past week and I rewatched the claire de lune to piano scene (which is shot in a high school cafeteria or similar, apparently) today and almost cried. At the bus stop. Sigh. And I thought, my goodness, I wish that Cougwicke was doing BD, because how in the hale is a man going to be able to portray what Beller is thinking in that film? (Bella’s lullaby is going on in my head over and over)

        Dear Bill Condon,

        Please, please, please bring back the Bella VO narration. Otherwise you lose the value of Breaking Dawn to the sour puss face of Edward post popping Beller’s cherry, the horrific birth scene and the actual only level of danger in the Volturi stand-off. If we can’t hear her, we don’t care about what happens. Bring it back, dang it!!!! None of this mustard pants “Dear Alice” crap! And Slade dropped it all together!!! I want it back “So, I’m going to Forks to live with my dad. It’ll be a good thing, I hope.” “The best thing about Charlie–he doesn’t hover.” “It’s March, the middle of the semester. Great.” “And the next day, another no show. Things were starting to get… weird.” “Neither of us will surrender tonight, but I won’t give in. I know what I want.” I WANT BELLA V.O. NARRATION BACK!

          Dear Twilight Franchise Fan (now available on Blu-Ray TM),

          “Vampire Bill” here, LOLs. Get it? LOLs. I just wanted to let you know that I hear you, loud and clear. Totally in accordance with the kids, LOLs. We had a test market audience for Breaking Dawn the other day and the popular sentiment was “bring Beller’s voice back, Condom-director-dude.” The audience just responds so well to her mellifluous yet commanding tone. So, just want to let you know that I will be doing that, throughout the entire movie. The audience also felt that Taylor’s voice was distracting/confusing (i.e. “why is HE talking now, LOLs”), so we’ll be doing Beller’s voice during his perspective as well. Kristen was reluctant to do this at first, but I told her it was OK to use her low voice to convey machismo/pervertedness. I think you’ll be quite pleased with the outcome. I’ll also be trying out all new “Tweets to Alice” wherein movie theater viewers can real-time tweet to Alice (her busy schedule permitting) anytime there is a question about fashion or “what is the real deal with Bellward” (she’s usually pretty busy, though, just sayin’, LOLs).

          Just wanted to let you know I’m on Team YOU.

          Bill-Director-Dude.

          • Anonymous

            p.s. The sexy! sexy! hot! hot! sex scenes will have voice over narration from both Edward and Bella (not sure if Kristen will agree to narrating Edward’s thoughts, but I’m working on it with her vocal coach now). I thought the audience would appreciate it.

            Here’s a taste, gentle viewer:

            Edward: baseball, baseball, dragon deep throating, baseball
            Bella: sleeping…I was trying to sleep…boat ride made me nauseous…need sleep
            Edward: baseball, baseball, dragon tongue, why hello there!
            Bella: ughghghghghghghghhh sleep sleep why is he on top of me
            Edward: time for schmexy dragon foreplay

            You know you love it.

            Obviously you get EPOV. That was spot on. I sort of get Bella’s voice over to be more like:

            “Edward entered by body as slowly as possible. I was so wound up by this point I would have punched him in his marble nuts if it wouldn’t have broken my hand, and then I would never get laid. His velvety voice kept mumbling about dragons and home runs and his eyes were squinched up really tight. He was sort of like the sexiest popsicle in the whole world.”

            LMAO. “Sexiest popscicle”…so much win there, it hurts. Only perhaps trumped by “marble nuts.”
