Storytime with Moon & UC Part 2 – #RIPTwilight and the premiere!

Dear LTT-ers,

I’ll be taking over the story time here from UC to bring you the rest of our Twilight time which mostly included the Premiere and Steve Urkel. Yea, I don’t know either but at least it wasn’t the Jenner sisters or Tia and Tamara or Jennifer Love Hewitt (AGAIN) like last year. We stepped up in the TGIF star echelon.

So let’s cut out the chit chat and get to the video we spent a billion hours on. You better like it…


No, we’re not street walkers working the corner of Fig and Chick Hearn waiting for some Lakers to get out of practice, this is just us with ALL our stuff. Yes, we had a cart full of gear and yes, that’s Jumping Rob under UC’s arm. What was in the cart? Well, tons of camera equipment, our “charging station” (mophie’s for our phones and anything with a USB), the props that keep Jumping Rob upright and little bottles that we were going to give out before someone told on us and as luck would have it that freaking Josh Horowitz took our idea and did shots with cast members. Wah wah waaaaaah.


Time to get this partaaaay started.


Our partners in crime… aka Twilightish and Fangirlish these girls


The official line up… oh what’s that I see??? LTT AND That’s Normal?! We have arrived. And departed…


There was a tampon on the red carpet. Yeaaaa, we don’t know either, but I’m sure someone was missing that at some point.

.


One last time… all the your favorite fan sites repping for the fans and the not-so-fans at the premiere. TwilightGuy, Team Twilight, Series Theories, Twilight Lexicon, TwilightMoms, Twilight Source (Hypable), BreakingDawnMovie.org, His Golden Eyes/Page to Premiere, Bella and Edward, Twilightish, Fangirlish, LTT, That’s Normal, Twifans and Twilight Anonymous. Whew that was a mouthful!
.

While we were busy “working” this creep was behind us acting all awkward. Someone should have called security.
.


They were just as ugly as you imagined them to be. Kind of like candy cane versions of those hideous platform foam flips flops all the girls used to wear only uglier. And more expensive.



I have nothing to say other than look how cute she is?! And did you see how much she wanted to sit next to Nutty Madam when she watched the movie for the first time? Too cute.


You already saw the video of Nikki singing at the fan concert now here is her talking about it. Honestly, I don’t remember this at all because I think we were about to get Taylor so I let UC take this
one.


Urkel (aka Jaleel White, extra credit to me for knowing that) showed up looking like his alter ego Stephon Urkele. No, he didn’t ask if he smelled cheese and yes, there was some crazy lady (boobs and blond hair in the background) who bum rushed him while he was talking to us bloggers and asked for a picture. Why, I am NO idea. Of all the stars to crash an interview to get a picture with you choose Steve Urkel.



This guy found the little bottles stashed in our caddy and got trashed. He had a blast.


JD charming Kimmy from His Golden Eyes/Page to Premiere.


Remember when we were all over Jackson? Remember when he was trying to make 100 Monkeys happen and it was awful? Remember when he wore that terrible crushed velvet suit to the premiere last year? Well, that Jackson is no more, help us welcome back AWESOME, HOT, SWOON-ABLE Jackson Rathbone. We’ve missed you man.


This is the best shot we could get of LTT hero and reader favorite Catherine Hardwicke. We didn’t get to ask her whether she still watched the audition tape every day or whether she preferred Cougaritas to Mudslides or Fridays to Applebees. Oh well… we’ll always have the memories, friends.
.


Yes, there was a dog with a Team Jacob bandana on the carpet who hung out in front of us for most of the night and right when it looked like a cast member was headed towards us they’d detour to the freaking dog. God bless America, thanks for your sacrifice dog and soldier. (No really, we mean it).


This is the best shot we could get of Nikki Reed, Peter Facinelli and the newest Twilight cast member: Paul McDonald. He plays the American Idol vamp.


Oh heeeeey Kellan. You like those Tim Tams Twilightish brought for you? Yea, you can kiss her, we’re cool. We’ll talk to Sharni for a while and set up a board game night. Also your foundation is just a shade too dark. And we love you.


Cue some super sad music (the entire New Moon soundtrack) because this is where we should have had an AWESOME video of Taylor where we got to ask him questions about Big Daddy and their Olive Garden Chain and what it’s like to have Big Daddy pick you up from school and how come we never see little mama and does it still hurt to listen to that Taylor Swift song and is she really a biotch cause we’re beginning to wonder. Ok, so maybe those weren’t EXACTLY the questions but whatever they are in our minds and somewhere in the ether of the video camera malfunction that ate our Taylor Lautner footage.
.

By now most of you have seen the Jumping Rob video wherein we took a lifesize version of Jumping Rob to the premiere to taunt and attract people with. If you were wondering what it looked like behind the scenes this is it…

Yes, we’re adults and yes we held this and yelled. And yes, it was awesome.


When asked if we were ready to interview Rob these are the faces we made. Somewhere between excited, snervous and ready to pounce. I think between the three of us we had Rob covered from every angle.


Guys, I meaaaaan it’s freaking Stephanie. She took a picture with Jumping Rob and pointed him out to EVERYONE. And her bag was Celine. The end.


I mean… I work here is done, right??

PS If you open this image in a new tab you can see how awesome this suit is and how while Rob was talking about needing to pee (who didn’t at that point?) I vacillated between thinking about how much Rob needs some Crest White Strips and how much I wanted to touch that freaking suit. AH!


JUST KIDDING. Our work was not done. We did this at the after party. And ate one cupcake and some mashed potatoes between us. It was a crrRRAAaaaZZzzzYYy night.

We’ve got tons more headed your way from the premiere. Hope you can handle more! If not, just go watch that video up there again.

We don’t even have to try, it’s always a good time!

Time to party like it’s the end of the saga!!


Dear LTT-ers,

Are you going to be in LA for the FINAL (insert tears here) premiere? Do you want to meet up with your favorite pals from LTT and other awesome Twilight fans and bloggers? Well have no fear because UC and I have you covered. We’re teaming with Google Local Los Angeles to bring you the “Google Local and LetterstoTwilight.com Bid Farewell to the Saga” party. Whew, that name’s almost as long as the movie title itself.

Come hang with us this Sunday at the Library Bar in downtown LA from 7-9PM for drinks, eats, chats, pics and lots of hugs. Google Local is generously offering drink tickets to the first 25 people who RSVP and review two places on Google+ Local. You can read all the how’s and why’s and where’s on the event invite.

We’d love to see you there, or in tent city, or in the grand stands, or on the red carpet. If you’re going to be in town for the premiere PLEASE let us know, we’d love to see you!

Until this weekend!
Moon & UC

PS Let us know if you have any questions!

Countdown to THE END: Things we need to do before THE END of The Twilight Saga

Dear LTT,

Moon & I had a blog meeting last week to discuss the “Countdown to the End.” I know, I know. You don’t want to admit it, neither do we, but the end of the Twilight saga is coming & so we discussed things we want to do here on LTT this fall. One of those things is throw a big party in LA on November 11th (tentative but most likely date) Are you gonna be there? Good. Keep checking here for details. You’re invited.

But as I’ve been thinking through THE END (I think from here forward this should be capitalized just like ROBSTEN) I’ve been struck with how many things we haven’t yet accomplished. And I started making a list. Guys: We have A LOT to do between now and THE END. Some of it seems possible. Some…. not so much. I rated the possibility next to each item from 0-10. 0 means it’s impossible (or the opportunity passed) and 10 means HECK YEAH IT’S (probably not but maybe could but probably won’t) HAPPENING:

Here is what’s on the list:

1) Family dinner at the Olive Garden with the Lautner Family  10

2) Try on those damn contacts that everyone complains about so much. HOW BAD CAN THEY BE. REALLY?  8

3. Drink out of little bottles with Butt Crack Santa 8

4) Bang Rob. Really missed the boat on that one… We had a chance a few weeks ago when ROBSTEN was broken  10

5) Board game night with Ashley and Kellan. Wearing snuggies of course 9

6) Save Rachelle LeFevre’s Twilight career 0 (sorry about that Rach!)

7) Moon-UC-Big Daddy Lautner family photo. Get it printed on canvas & hang it above my bed when Mr. Choice isn’t looking 10

8) Shag Jackson after a 100 Monkeys Show 0 (damn, someone beat us to it. And by someone I mean a lot of people)

9) Wednesday night Bible Study with Kellan Lutz. Of course our first book we work through will be 50 Shades of Black & White: A Biblical Response to 50 Shades of Grey (it’s a real thing)   10

10) Big BBQ and bonfire with the original gangastas aka the Cullen Family over at Moon’s house.  10

11) Give nipple clamps or cheese wheels to a new cast member  0 (unless it still counts if we do it at the premiere in November? Then 10)

12) Family game night with the Meyers. Gotta make my famous Nachos for Pancho 10

13) And while we’re there steal their yearbook & look for the REAL Nacho. *wink* 10

14) Awkward interviews with Kristen because we know that she knows (what we said about her) 10 (but I kinda want it to be a 0. *scared)

15) Roleplay Renee and Phil meeting Charlie and Sue Clearwater at the wedding/baby shower/1st family christmas  10 (because WE NEED MORE ROLEPLAYS (remember the first one!?)

16) Be a famous fanfic author. Make $200,000 per day 10 (You read Moon’s “INSIDE OUR HOME” story Right? Brilliant)

Looks like we have a REALLY good chance of getting most of this done this Fall! Man we’re gonna be busy.

Counting down the days (and then crying into my pillow) until THE END (FYI 51…),
UnintendedChoice

Do you occasionally read LTR too? Go over there for a special message today. We banged Rob. (NO we didn’t. but go anyway)

A little Penny Lane wisdom

“I always tell the girls, never take it seriously, if ya never take it seriosuly, ya never get hurt, ya never get hurt, ya always have fun, and if you ever get lonely, just go to the record store and visit your friends.” – Penny Lane

.

Dear Twilight Fans,

I think Penny Lane said it best when she shared this bit of wisdom with William and I’ve tried to apply it to many things in life especially stuff like bands and music and obsessions like Twilight. Remember that this was once FUN! Find that place again,  take Penny’s words to heart and remember why you’re in this thing: the friends you’ve met, the films you’ve seen, the fun times you’ve had and above all the story Stephenie Meyer gave us.

XOXO,
Moon

Remember that whole Robsten thing? Well…

Dear LTT-ers,

If you were not on Twitter late yesterday (west coast time) than you might have missed ALLLLL this:


Kristen Cheats on Rob! – US Weekly

Kristen Stewart cheats on Robert Pattinson with married director -People

Kristen Stewart “Made a Mistake” and feels “Awful” for cheating on Robert Pattinson – Gossip Cop

uhhhh… YIKES!

So when my phone started blowing up with texts from far and wide asking what was going on/what was happening/WHYGODWHY/Why should she do that and UC texting unintelligible things like ZOMGROmKirstncheeteosjhasisdj!!!!!jn!_!! I knew Twitter would be a mess and MAN did it not disappoint. We’re talking a 2009 era explosion among the fandom. I saw people who hadn’t tweeted in years come out of the wood work to weigh in, Nutty Madam was confounded, the fandom Glitterati came out in force to share their thoughts!

To say it was/is spectacular is an understatement. We hadn’t seen this much creativity and hilarity in months. Thank you fandom Gods for seeing to it that we got Christmas in July and that I wasn’t half way across the world when it happened. Since the story is still developing and since we couldn’t let you miss out on a single moment, we’re going to be bringing you all the best from Twitter and around the nets all day. Stay tuned here for a the best of the best in Krupbert-Robsten-gate.

Moon & UC

Updates:

Always the voice of reason and my blogging idol Micheal K from Dlisted has A LOT (of awesome things) to say about this

Every Twihard Just Melted Into a Puddle of Sparkly Misery – Dlisted

PS Michael we beat you to the Nutty Madam response. BEHOLD the twitter convo:



Now Nutty Madam is an elegant lady who is refraining from a reaction video (sadly) because she supports Twi and all it’s endeavors but just think about the possibilities and what might have been… :)

More as the story develops… (I think that’s the first and only time we’ll ever say that)

Tweets we Love (authors are anonymous)

She was careless. Her popularity will plummet. She has jeopardized sequels to SWATH & put BD at risk. No studio will want her. And with a director? Oh god.

Cuz when someone cheats in Hollywood it usually does completely ruin their career:

The spectulation about “the pictures”

so i am not in the crazy robsten forever and she woudl NEVER..but the ones standing..way too tall to be her, unless
she has heels on

AND WE KNOW SHE HATES HEELS!

These things we know to be true:

somewhere out there, michael angarano is having a pretty good day.

@joshuahorowitz sir, you know you secretly in the corner whisphering, “yes” because you think you have a chance with him. Don’t play

Follow us on @letter2twilight on Twitter (or just look at our page if you’re not a member!) for the latest…. There’s too much goodness to keep posting & I realllyyyyy have to work!
