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

What are your New Year’s resolutions?

BUSINESS TIME!

I’m always in this Twilight, in the shadow of your heart

Dear LTTers,

We’ve spent the last few months sharing bits & pieces of our time with Stephenie Meyer with you, and we’ve finally come to the end. Our 4 hours with Stephenie FLEW by and before we knew it her assistant Meghan told us to ask our last questions. We scrambled- because we were first to go last. Do we end asking for the TRUTH behind the Robsten love story? Do we ask something deep & Twilosophical about Fred & Bree? Wait- we forgot to ask questions about her husband Nacho and if she told him that’s our pet name for him! Well, we decided to make our “one” question 2 questions and went for something a little fun and a little serious:

Call it Twilosophy call it breaking down our interview, one last time, but just eavesdrop on Moon & me yesterday as we discussed what interviewing & meeting Stephenie Meyer really meant to us!

Remembering

Leg Hitched Stephenie Meyer

Wait what? We DID this!?

Moon: I was showing my roomie the pics from meeting Stephenie the other day.. and I was like OH MY GOD WE MET STEPHENIE MEYER!!!! It still doesn’t seem real sometimes
UC:
I KNOW
Moon:
and how nice and welcoming she was
UC:
I mean… it feels less real now, I think, almost 3 months later. THREE months
Moon:
Right. It was all a dream- she would understand that!
UC:
I mean.. this summer was CRAZY for both of it- the whole summer was a dream. It was my “dream summer”- moving & sweating my ass off right
Moon:
I was also talking to someone about meeting her and I was like, “It was like the biggest thing on our blog goal list (besides being red carpet SUMMIT!)
UC:
I KNOW!!!
Moon:
Like where do we go from there?
UC:
I mean….. meeting Rob would be lame…. because he’s so afraid of people {he only loves Jella the cat these days}
Moon:
Oh god Jella, vom. What does an artist do once they’ve won the Grammy or met their inspiration?
UC:
I mean… I think other people have higher goals- there are always goals to reach…. except.. we run a Twilight blog and…we met the creator of Twilight
Moon:
I’ve seen Rob in person several times and he’d have a LOT to live up to. I have awesome hilarious cute friends. So he’d need to bring his a-game (which I doubt he would)
UC:
And we not only MET but basically HUNG OUT WITH Stephenie. You ate bacon next to her! While I got grossed out by bacon 2 seats down!! You can’t top that as Twilight bloggers
Moon:
And she used OUR words. She talked about OUR posts. She called the male blogger in the room a unicorn
WHERE DO YOU GO FROM THERE?
UC:
I still can’t believe I didn’t drop dead right there
Moon:
Well, besides on the red carpet, and a guest role as Volturi witnesses

Flo

Moon: Is it funny that Flo [Florence and the Machine] is playing and Steph gave us that cd? The part were Flo sings ‘I’m always in this Twilight’ makes me think of Stephanie!
UC:
I KNOW! ALWAYS!!!!!!! Awww! TWINS!
Moon:
cause she (and us by default) will always somehow be part of this thing
UC:
I bet Steph thinks of herself
Moon:
“I’m always in this Twilight, in the shadow of your heart” That’s sooo our whole Twilight experience for me


UC: Awwww! Yes!!!!! I got goosebumps, but I have my period so I’ll probably burst into tears in a second. Emo
Moon:
It’s been such a great ride it really has
UC:
SO great! And this was the pinnacle
Moon:
This sounds like the end, even though its not!!!!
UC:
I know- calm down people, we’re not through with you quite yet!

We get sappy after the jump! Continue…

Stephenie Meyer on a Twilight Sequel & Fangirling

Dear LTTers,

Jimmy Jillikers! Have we got something special for YOU today!

I have no idea why I used my cheeseball voice, but I was totally in the mood.

Jumping right into what Fridays are for: To bombard you EVEN MORE about our interview with Stephenie Meyer. Yes, my friends, we aren’t done yet. In fact, these clips from today are some of my favorites!

Stephenie Breaks Down Breaking Dawn

And you thought the way we butcher Twilight by adding new characters with Mexican accents, making crude remarks about a wolf & a baby, being pretty descriptive about the things we really want to do to Edward Cullen and asking the really important questions (like what really happens with Bella gets her period) was bad- just wait until you hear what Stephenie really wanted to release because of the crazy demands of the fans for the end of her series:

SM BreakingDown by letterstotwilight

Haters get back! Stephenie’s the TRUE person “disrespecting” the saga! (But we’ll keep claim on our role of disrespecting Rob, nice and slowwwwww…..)

Fangirl

That’s right, we might fangirl over Rob & Taylor (I totally just wrote “Jacob” oops) who are famous because of characters she created, but Stephenie can fangirl too! In fact…. she might call herself “2nd-hand embarrassing.” However, since I’m friends with the girl who got a picture with Rob and I myself have worn a Christian Twilight Tshirt to Wal-mart, I think we can let the creator of Twilight’s fangirl moments slide:

SM FanGirl by letterstotwilight

(Sidenote: around :15 or :16, don’t you think you’re about to hear her say she wants to see Joshua Jackson naked? Yeah…. me too!)

The Twilight SEQUEL

Yes. We threatened to photoshop Stephenie’s skirt into a pair of jorts if she didn’t answer us on the who/what/when/where/how’s of a sequel/novella/continuation of the story we love sooooo much…. and instead of telling us “Yes, I’ll write you a personal story of Edward plus you, UC, then Edward plus you, Moon” like we really wanted, she let us in on why she created Nessie (cause she wanted that baby name and therefore the nickname to go viral, giving her much to laugh about as she “tricked” moms-to-be with a fake cute name) and tells a cute story about when she went to the theater to see New Moon. Yep: Stephenie is just like you & me! She goes into movie theaters. Also has dreams where Edward Cullen is created. That’s normal:

SM Sequel by letterstotwilight

Don’t have time to listen to all the audio today? You fail at LTT fanship, but we understand. Listen to just one clip- I pulled out the New Moon story from the above audio just for you!

SM NewMoon by letterstotwilight

I love FRIDAYS!!!!!!!

Love,
UnintendedChoice

PS: In my spare time blogging much less this week, I purchased & finished MockingJay- the 3rd book in the Hunger Game series. We talked about HG with Stephenie a bit before the tapes were turned on- she’s a major fan (and quoted on the back of the book!) and was counting the days until she got to crack it open (she said she probably wouldn’t get it until a week before it’s release) So, UC approves, Moon will approve (she just finished Water for Elephants, give her a break), and Stephenie approves- you should read it too!

Read, listen & see more from our interview with Stephenie!

LTT interviews Stephenie Meyer: The never-ending story

Dear LTTers,

I must apologize for my lack of preparedness last week when I was on vacation- I didn’t have a story ready for you regaling the tales from our interview with Stephenie Meyer for Friday- I fail. But this week I prepared ahead! Yesterday morning on my 1 hour + drive into work, I re-listened to part of our interview and picked out some fun stories and audio we wanted to share. And let me tell you IT IS AMAZING- we’re gonna tell you what Stephenie would write were she to write a sequel AND who she fangirls over..

Alas, I have to apologize again. See…. we have to get all audio we post approved first- because Stephenie told us top secret things like Rob’s phone #, where she gets her telephonic lens for photographing the Robsten love nest and just how many headboards she and Nacho* broke on their Isle Esme honeymoon (Sandals, Jamaica 1997 baby!) Apparently those stories were for our ears only. Haha Suckas’ Anyway, because I submitted the audio yesterday, and apparently the world doesn’t work on my last minute time frame, I don’t have all the clips I wanted to share. HOWEVER, next week WILL rule, Promise- we even have an anecdote about when Stephenie snuck in to see New Moon in the theater!

This week will rule, as well. While the audio clips are few, I took the liberty of letting you in on some LTT secrets- what really was going on when the camera caught us in the room during the interview… it’s not what you think:

First up, we ask Stephenie about the crrrraaaazy Twilight Merch she has seen. Of course she’s too nice- that Stephenie, being kind to weird fans- although…. she lets us know how some crazy merch makes her feel:

SM Merch by letterstotwilight

Wait- back up… did you hear what Stephenie said up there? You know how we do this- let’s repeat that one line she said, one more time:

SM 2ndHandEmbarassment by letterstotwilight


It was during a question asked by Twilight Series Theories when Stephenie discussed Edward’s reluctance to turn Bella into a vampire. She recalled a story she read on LTT, written by our very own Alice_NaA:

SM PhysicalPain by letterstotwilight

By the way, I talked to Alice_NaA recently because she went for waxing session #2. She said the 2nd time wasn’t so painful….. And I told her,

UC: “There goes our Vampire metaphor, then. Are you saying waxing is more like a metaphor for losing your virginity? The first time- “kill me I’m never doing that again” 2nd time.. “okay… I could get used to this..”
Alice: “Yeah… that’s a good metephor! Apart from the fact that I’m not gonna be telling my dermatologist ‘Oooo… right there’  the third time…”

Happy Friday! Catch up with all the other Stephenie Meyer Interview Recaps you may have missed!

*Just because ever since we found out she reads LTT I’ve felt weird and never said anything- I feel we need to explain why we refer to Stephenie’s husband as “Nacho.” One day, Moon wrote about him and lovingly referred to him as that. I thought it was intentional, but it was not. It was an honest, hilarious mistake. And ever since that’s just become his name. We love Nacho. Mmmm Nachos…. Damn, I’m hungry.

Getting Twilosophical with Stephenie Meyer

Dear LTTers,

Week after week now we’ve given you the goods on our interview with Stephenie Meyer. We’ve shocked you with our “Eff, Kill, Marry (Leg Hitch, Imprint, Hunt)” question, we’ve made you laugh with our Leg hitch picture and we’ve proved we’re the best of all time with our smooth, cool demeanor- even when she told us she reads LTT every day (Hey Steph!)

But we know you’ve been DYING to know details about the questions we asked about Bree & Fred and the connection between Diego & Bree and why Stephenie choose to let Fred escape but kill both Bree & Diego. Oh wait, you don’t want to hear about that? Oh that’s right- you would have killed us had we asked crap like that and then made you listen to it.

However, our interview wasn’t all fun & games- we did have some serious questions for Steph. I mean…. how could we look at ourselves if we didn’t get Twilosophical with the creator of it all?

Today’s discussion topics:

  • Redemption in Twilight (hollaaaaa) & what happened to Bree? Vampire Heaven? H-E-Double-Hockey Sticks?
  • What did Steph’s kids watch on TV when she was writing Twi?
  • What makes Stephenie want to kill Nacho Pancho
  • Edward’s evolution throughout the saga
  • When Nacho got HOT(ter) & whether or not Mr. Choice is awkward around kids

LTT Interviews Stephenie Meyer Set 4 by letterstotwilight

Yeah… you heard that right- Stephenie said “The Font” and called them “Your Unicorns” Wanna hear that again? We do too:

The Font, right?

SM The Font by letterstotwilight

Your Unicorns:

SM Unicorns by letterstotwilight

You know that’s not the last time you’re gonna hear those audio clips!

Phew- that was way Twilosophical for today. How ’bout I remind you that the marjority of the interview was like this:

Lots and lots and lots of laughter (and way weird faces from UC and Moon almost kneeing Stephenie in the face)

Love,
UnintendedChoice

Catch all our other interview recaps

Send in stuff that made you think of Moon for “While Moon was Gone

BIG LTT Thanks to:
Samuel from Twifans who did a TON of audio editing. HE RULES!!!!
