Who are all these new people?! Volurti and Twitter don’t mix

Beller is alive!! And so are all these other Vampires I don't know...

Dear LTT-ers,

Remember when we didn’t know who the guys in the Wolfpack were or who Harry was? And we call them stuff like Nerdy Wolf and Australian dude? Well while I was away it seems like anyone who has ever been cast as a vampire came out to play in the public eye. While I was trying to catch up in the weeks of twi-news I missed, I kept saying WHO is that?! WHO is this?! That albino dude is in Breaking Dawn? So I think it’s time we catch up with the newbs (the ones I care about at least) and give them a little run down on how shiz works around these Twilight parts…

Something's not right here, right???

Vladamir, The albino guy – aka Noel Fisher
I have a lot of questions for this guy… is it bleached? Was he born this way (ain’t no other way)? I thought the Romanian Vamps were HELLA old and creep sauce looking. He may be a tad creeper but he looks 16. More just learning to drive and hide my back-ne then dark forces of the underworld.

Stefan (not Urkel) – aka Guri Weinberg
This dude went on and on about playing some big prank on the set of BD and while I enjoy a good “Go Fuck Yourself” as much as the next person, when I hear “prank” and “Breaking Dawn” in the same sentence I’m hoping some switched out Bella’s cup of fake blood for the REAL thing… or at least have Bill Condon to ask the wolfpack to not rely on CGI but to really bust naked out of their clothes and phase, with a straight face.

Srsly yall, The Pacific, Rami Malek get on this train!

Benjamin, Egyptian Vamp – aka Rami Malek
He’s pretty much the only new Vamp I really care about because he was kick ass in The Pacific, looked freaking cute with his long board in Larry Crowne but really I like him because I saw him on my way to Target a few weeks ago in his black Prius wearing one of those pork pie hats and any vamp who loves the earth and tiny hats is fine by me.

Eleazar – aka Christian Camargo
Clearly, Dexter’s brother is the only other new Vamp I really care about. Too bad his name is Eleazar and not Brian/Rudy the Ice Truck Killer… but I think I’ve waxed eloquently on this topic before.

They all seem to be starting Twitter accounts and tweeting each other and the fans like they’ve been around for decades, even telling Twihards if they’re a REAL fan they’ll follow Volturi Guard number whoever decided to join the twittersphere that week. Um no, actually I am a real fan but I only need one Tinsel Korey tweeting misspelled missives about the end of the world in my feed. One love yall! One of these is more than enough! THANKS!

Do they really think we believe them about being a true fan? Do we care? NO! Have they ever asked Stephenie Meyer to play “Fuck/Kill/Marry” with her own characters? I THINK NOT! And THAT’S how you do it Twilight Vampire newbies… a late welcome to the ‘hood from us.

Runs with Vampires… or something,
Themoonisdown

Do you feel as confused as I am about all these new people? Should I have flashed Rami Malek in his Prius? Yes? know, missed opportunity. And are you a real fan? Enough to follow all these yahoos on Twitter?

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

    Always flash a Twilight character if you meet them in Walmarts! That’s a rule. Because rumour of your really awesome boobs might find its’ way back to Taylor or Rob, or Peter or Billy…it’s worth a chance!

    Other than that, meh, no I have no clue at this new bunch of characters – I think I’ll just wait and let them surprise me. But I agree that the Roumanian vamps were suppose to be superold with papery skin, and albino just doesn’t cut it: guess it was a COMPROMISE, because Stephenie is just as good at those as Bella!

    • Anonymous

      But the question remains: Do you flash a Twi character in TARGET?!?!

      Because honestly, we’ve seen the People of Walmart video and really, that’s enough.

  • Anonymous

    I only follow PFach because of his cute dad-isms, Jasksper because he’s adorkable, and CW because we are in a passive-aggressive love spiral.

    and yes, in the decision to flash boobs or not flash boobs, always go for flash. You always regret the things you don’t do more than the things you do. Unless you are a murderer. Then you are probably crazy and don’t regret anything.

    • MariaCecilia

      “Follow”…? You mean like you..stalk them?? Do you watch them sleep too? Creepy…

      • TeamSeth

        She only watches C-Dubs. And only on Thursdays. And only from the beach dunes.  And only when his wife is out of town.

        • Anonymous

          Yes. and I only occasionally watch them sleep from the CCTV I had installed in their homes.

          • TeamSeth

            I thought they renamed closed-circuit to EdwardTV?

  • natteringyeahrobber

    I already follow an embarrassing amount of Twilight-related celebs on Twitter. But, I do have some standards, as hard as that is to believe. Volturi dudes (dudettes?): you gotta earn me as a follower.   Good news: it’s not that hard.

    How to Get Me to Follow You: A Guide for Twilight Actors/Directors

    1. Post strange, out of focus photos of pets you may or may not actually own. Make sure to add captions that do not match the photo. Instant intrigue.
    2. Ask a question, then log off the minute I respond. Or just ignore me but answer everyone else, that works too.
    3. Recommend an obscure movie that I just happened to watch on Netflix streaming the other night
    4. Post photos of yourself looking sullen, standing against a wall that has Pablo Neruda poetry engraved within
    5. Tweet me after 9 on Fridays (I’ve usually had 2 glasses of wine by then). I will pretty much drunk respond/follow anyone at that time, especially if you mention CW.

    There you have it. Pass it along.

      I <3 you for this

  • Anonymous

    I kinda feel sorry for all these random actors, trying to hitch a ride on the gravy train after it’s gone.  They weren’t around for the first 3 movies, and their parts won’t be seen until NOVEMBER 2012–thank you, Summit, for stretching it out so you can squeeze every last dollar out of us.  I’ve got a feeling that’s not a smart move and no one will care about the Volturi and all the random vamps by then.  Or maybe that’s just me.

    • Stacey

      Remember the random girls who played Maria’s vampire friends in Eclipse!  Oh and Heidi from New Moon?

      I don’t really remember them either, but I do recall how they were everywhere trying to act like their roles were huge. Not glorified cameos.

      This is the Breaking Dawn edition. Only more random actors this time. 

      • Anonymous

        Maria’s vamp friend.  I’m sitting her thinking, Maria, Maria?  Maria?  Oh, yeah!

      • TeamSeth

        I will always remember Heidi. But that’s because she has an exchange with Charlie Bewley and I have a Bewley/Cudmore fast forward feature on my NM DVD (Thanks, Chris! I owe you big… well, not *that* big. Big in Japan, maybe.)

    • MariaCecilia

      Question: Would you rather be a random vamp on the set of BD2 or someone posting on an Internet Twilight blog about aforementionend vampire? I am on the fence here…

      • TeamSeth

        It depends how cold and rainy the day of the shoot was. And if Charlie and Cuddley were there. And if Jack Morissey was there making jokes with us in the 3 hours of makeup we had to sit through.

      • natteringyeahrobber

        The former when I’m sober, the latter when I’m not. 

        If you were a random actor in BD2, you could tell embellished set stories at parties the rest of your life. Plus you could casually mention how you and Michael Sheen used to hang out after work, at the bar. Who gets to say that…I mean, other than S. Molina, the legendary red-jacketed LTTer? 

        By contrast, I try not to mention I post here when I’m at parties (though sometimes it does spill out, along with Rob-lust confessions, oops). It tends to quiet the room when I bring them (Twi/Rob) up, so I just don’t. Instead, I ignore other party guests and hide out in the bathroom/porch (depending on the weather) with my Blackberry. Posting to LTT. 

        • Anonymous

          Oh yeah, the hushed room.  They are just envious you had to balls to say it out loud.  They wish they were as brave or bold as you.

          • Anonymous

            Depending on how many Dark and Stormys, I either hush the room with my “OMG on Twilight…” theories, or I do the hiding with my Android, posting to twitter. I think most of my friends prefer the latter.

          • TeamSeth

            I certainly do!  Wait, you meant like RL friends, didn’t you…

        • ladyofthemeadow

          I don’t let on at parties or work that I post here. Never.

          Someone noticed my cute sundress today at work and said I must be cold in the air conditioned building. I almost let slip something like, “I’m 108 degrees over here”, but I caught myself and smiled and just said I’m always warm. It was a meeting room full of women and they were all within earshot.

          Wouldn’t it be totally cool if one of you guys were really someone I know here though??!!

          “Nat/NutSlut/TS/Cecilia/opera/Robsfm– is that really you????” 

          “OMG, meadow, is that YOU?!”

          “OldOne, you don’t look that old!!”

          • natteringyeahrobber

            Every time a woman (or unicorn-looking guy) gives me a knowing look, followed by a smile, I assume it is because they know.exactly.who.i.am. The other day I was having dinner with my kids at a pub (translation: me scarfing down dinner, husband rendered useless by very hoppy beer, and kids fighting over crayons and not eating) and this woman sat across from us. She looked wise, knowing, and was wearing a purple sweater. She smiled at me. I naturally assumed she was TOO and nodded. Should have followed up on that connection but kids were too insane. 

          • ladyofthemeadow

            I try to look wise and knowing when I see parents eating out with kids younger than mine. I’m thinking, “Yup, I’ve been there too; you’re doing just fine”.

            I have friends with kids older than mine and they think (and say) similar things about/to me. Like, “Yup, tween = hormonal mess!”

            Giving and receiving those messages is like an invisible link among parents, one we all need or else we’d go crazy. In public.

            Okay, enough OT. It’s just that Twilight and parenting are some of my favourite things to think about.

            So, right now I am in the Hamptons. Yes, those Hamptons, we have a friend who’s dad bought a place 60 years ago and now, holy shit they have a house in the Hamptons. It’s kind of fucking awesome. So anyway, (for those of you not on Twitter who did not witness my harassment of CW) seems Mr. Weitz gave a talk here the day before we arrived. Cue the twitter crazy, which of course he does not respond to because he probably has me blocked and on some government/celebrity watch list. So anyway, I was like, OMG! What if I do see him?! Do I say, “Hi! Big fan! BTW, I am the one who you IGNORE completely while talking to all my friends on Twitter. You know, TEAM SETH?! Yeah. I KNOW HER. (sort of. online.) So, sorry about accusing you of lying about your undying love for me. I had a lot of rum that night. I am incredibly not crazy. Nice to meet you, bye!”
            or do I just awkwardly walk by him 10 times trying to get a surreptitious phone pic of him?

          • TeamSeth

            I vote for the former.  BUT MAKE SURE you have 2 drinks in your hand(s) and give him one of them.  The one you’ve been sipping, so you know, your saliva will be inside of him. #normal (that’s like… whoa creepy–don’t do that)  Anyway, yes, the former. He’s clearly going to run into me at LAX on our ways home anyway. Then I can say, “Oh! My friend bought you a drink.”

          • Anonymous

            got it. will do. **goes to pour drinks**

          • natteringyeahrobber

            Well, you know what I would do. Yes, that’s right, I’d hide.

            And then I’d come to my senses and take a blurry photo of his pants and tweet said photo. Then others (again, not naming names here) who follow me could immediately tweet CW and alert him to the fact that I was standing right in front of him, taking pictures of his pants. Then he’d have to say hi.  
            That’s the only possible way I can see it playing out. But I’m shy.

          • TeamSeth

            When I first read this comment, I thought you were saying:

            I don’t let on at [cast] parties that I post here. Never.

            As in, you are IN the BD cast yourself and that you have to follow the code of controlled fan interaction and non-disclosure of film details etc.  So, you post incognito to get your Normal out.  And it was like “Whoa. I didn’t think that would ever happen.” (as in, a real cast member posting here)

            AND THEN I reread it and was like “Ooooh. J/K”

            But I will say, if you ever suspect me of being in LTT, just ask. I have a thought out plan that if I see an LTT shirt I will approach, no matter what, and say, “I’m TeamSeth.” like just declare it quietly. Not “Who are you?” or “OMG are you on LTT?” or anything.  I comment daily, so I figure my name is somewhat known among LTTers (Normal) and if said person reads the comments, then they’ll know who I am.

            Otherwise, it’ll just be embarrassing. BUT you can always have a “Oh! I thought you were someone else. I’m so sorry.” moment and quickly walk away.

          • ladyofthemeadow

            I love your plan to quietly declare your (true) identity. I’ve never thought about how I’d handle it, but I may take up your plan. It sounds good; it opens the door but provides a dignified exit plan. You sound rather like a secret agent!

             However, I think the chance of actually stumbling across another LTT/LTR’er is pretty much zilch.

            Your misreading of my post – that I go to BD cast parties etc. – is waaay less than zilch! but made me laugh.

          • TeamSeth

            haha, I am writing a novel about secret agents (kind of), so I guess it’s good that my writer mindset is so embedded that it’s seeping out.

            Yes, your LTT known!! Ladyofthemeadow just named you personally!! And me, hehe. I feel kinda famous ;)

            PS- why don’t we have a nickname for LOTM? (i’m not likin that one)

            I think Meadow works.  Like Nat is Nat (er, NatteringYeahRobber is Nat) and Lady is too… I don’t know it reminds me of Lady and the Tramp or Lady from Almost Famous.

            If anyone’s still reading — I like Meadow. Makes me sound a little Hunger Games-ish but that’s fine.

    I am intrigued to see Ice Truck Killer as Eleazar, but I am worried that Dexter will pop out and try to stake him. Which would actually be not only funny, but would actually add some sort of action to Breaking Dawn. (Other than the whole rip out the baby scene)

    I really want to see Lee Pace though. I hope they just add random Garrett scenes that were never in the book. The more Lee Pace the better. Oh and he should bake Bella a pie. (I really miss Pushing Daisies. And seeing Kristen Chenowith on Glee isn’t cutting it for me. Which is kind of funny, because I remember reading an article a long time ago that EW wanted her to play Jane. Not joking here, they really did.)  

    • Anonymous

      KC’s obviously too old, but her voice and look are pretty perfect for Jane, I think.  Some good Garrett/Kate romance scenes would be great for BD2!  They’re going to have to break up all that mental-bubble-flexing-training with something.

      • TeamSeth

        I especially look forward to when he tackles her in the giant clearing (aka, the grassy area by Parish Rd 33 that we saw the pic of our own Mrs Molina on with the green screen background!) and Bella’s all “Must put thin condom in between them so she won’t shock him.” and Garrett’s all, “Thanks, Bells. Now, Kate, let’s fuck.”

        (this is how it goes when I read the book!)

        • MariaCecilia

          Aha, you perceive condoms in your interpretation of SM:s work! So you’re not pro-life, I take it?! (Because what is a little zapping between friends of opposite sex? Love conquers all.)

            I am pro-Kate forcing men to their knees.

    • MariaCecilia

      The Volurti are the Italian mob clan that do business by way of Twitter. The Volturi are a clan of vampires that communicate via Twirter -aka posting messages in the mouths of ripped-off heads on top of stakes at major turnpikes, 144 inches above ground.

    Yeah, that’s how I roll because I’m just cool like that. I speak new vamp language. (makes click noise with mouth, winks and points hand like gun)

        I’m passing on messages the Wolf pack way, which is the next generation: smoke signals. “Puff puff puff puff-puff” means “I had veggie meatloaf for lunch and I just saw a guy who might or might not have been Michael Sheen getting coffee!” Join me on Woofster!

          I resisted Twitter for a while. But how else can people (people HERE, not naming names) copy Chris Weitz on embarrassing tweets to you about him, tweets he could (if he wanted to, god let’s hope he doesn’t) read. Tweets that out you as a delusional hormonal sexed-up fan girl? Yes, only on Twitter. You know you want it.

    Feeling the need to share random great Twilight related things with the only people that I know would a. know what I was talking about b. care:

    So my $0.75 cent Nora Roberts book that has (part native) Jacob Greystone, Alice, Carlyle, and (Douglas) EDWARD CULLEN in it as characters also mentions imprinting. Totally not in the same context (and I no longer remember how it was used, anyway). Just had to share.

    I was watching an episode of NY Ink (I swear I watch those tattoo shoes for the tattoos, not for the ego fueled staff fights) with a footballer getting a tattoo, and he totally got a Twilight tattoo. He got his whole forearm covered with a huge dream catcher and a pack of wolves. There may have been an eagle flying as well, and he probably should have gone with a motorcycle instead, but whatever. Epic Twilight tattoo dude.

    Oh yeah. And True Blood. They show Sookie sitting and reading a book, and we see that it is a Charlaine Harris book. I get what they were trying to do. Like Seeing SM in the diner, yeah yeah, Chalaine Harris wrote the books. But wouldn’t have been more of an in-joke if she had been reading a Nora Roberts romance, because that is actually what is mentioned in the books? I don’t know, maybe they’ve done that before, and I’ve never noticed.

    • TeamSeth

      I AGREE!!!!!!!!!!

      Plus, I’m pretty positive Charlaine herself is at Sam’s in season 1 at some point. I mean, they do shoot the show in Shreveport after all, it’s not like a giant journey from Arkansas to NoLA
