Emergency Post (Because Michael Sheen does a dramatic Fan Fic reading)

Dear Twilight,

It’s Thursday at 11:42 am ET. And I stopped what I was doing (photoshopping a truck for a “truckload sale” we’ve having this weekend. Come on down if you want a hot tub & live in Philadelphia!) because THIS VIDEO of Michael Sheen dramatically reading a Twilight Fan Fiction appeared:

(Sorry if you’re out of the US and can’t see that. Boo hoo :() This is ALMOST my dream come true. Except my dream involves ROB doing a dramatic reading of ROBSTEN Fan Fic and then making out with me afterward because, ya know, ROBSTEN fan fic gets me hot

What a great addition to my Thursday! Thanks Michael Sheen. And Best Week Ever and Marah for the heads up :)

Love,

Twilight News Dump – The Of Course edition

We’re crazy bro!!!

Dear LTT-ers,

Since there’s nothing HUGE happening (besides the filming of Breaking Dawn) and tons of tiny little things happening AND because when I realize that some of you great readers only come here for I news, I thought it might be nice to have a news dump.

OF course Jackson would be wearing red pants and a top hat in a picture for something called the “Liquid Zoo” album and tour… of which I will not be purchasing OR attending. Love you Jacky! PS 40 cities?? REALLY?? OF COURSE!

Of course the day AFTER BrookeLockart shows up to The Grove in LA from outta town, Ashley Greene would make an appearance there. OF COURSE!

Of course at the Breaking Dawn wrap party the cast took turns riding a teeeeny tiny motorcycle that Taylor brought. I bet Big Daddy was sad. OF COURSE!

Of course Robert Pattinson is going to be on 10546546 TV Shows to promote Water for Elephants! And of course you know they’re gonna ask about Twilight and of course they’re gonna ask about you know who and OF COURSE we (meaning Jena) have you covered on the DVR alerts page.

Of course the pie guy slash the guy from The Fall talks to us Twi fans and makes me more excited to see him as Garrett whoever that is. I hope Garrett is a pie maker.

Of course Carlisle Cullen would land at #2 on the Forbes list of most wealthy fictional characters and OF COURSE his cover would be blown because they list his stocks in blood and his “daughter” Alice’s penchant for seeing the futre. GOOD JOB fake Forbes, now they have to move again! OF COURSE! #respectthecullens

Of course we all thought the Official Twilight Illustrated Guide was never coming out so OF COURSE you are really confused when it showed up in your mail today but OF COURSE you ordered it back in 2008. If you didn’t you can get it here

Of coure Catherine Hardwicke talks about Twilight and Rob while doing promo for her OTHER (laughable, LIT-TRALLY) movie. And OF COURSE we roll our eyes. SHOW US THE TAPE! Shut up or put up! Or whatever the saying is.

So of course now you’re all caught up on all the news that doesn’t matter and of course all we really want are some legal OFFICIAL stills or maybe a teensy clip from Breaking Dawn but we’ll solider on and pray that November 18 comes faster than it already is.

Happy Hump Day!

The beginning of the end

Dear Twilight,

Last week I hopped on to BreakingDawnMovie.org my go to source for Twilight news (besides Twilight FB which is my go-to place for the opportunity to respond to news with comments like “I BET ROBSTEN REALLLY LIKES THIS NEWS STORY” (all in caps, of course)) and something struck me.

It struck me once with this headline from March 23rd:

Breaking Dawn Filming Completed of the Swan House, Deconstruction Begins

I snuck on the set & got this picture for you guys

Then it struck me with THIS headline, too:

Breaking Dawn Filming News: Jamie Campbell Bower Has Completed His Breaking Dawn Filming!

Bower is on to bigger & better, bitches

WHAT? WHAT IS GOING ON?? DOES ROBSTEN KNOW ABOUT THIS? Is this actually happening?

Then I read an article where Rob mentioned the end of Breaking Dawn (and have since forgotten which article it was since it was such a horrible thought) and I basically had a bad week. But 2 strong cocktails Wednesday night, beer & wine at work after a 14 hour event, plus 5 glasses of wine at dinner on Friday AND Saturday nights helped. But now that I’m sober (read: currently drinking 1 glass of red) and doing some research on what I missed last week, I’ve been STRUCK with this tweet yesterday from Kiowa Gordon:

WRAP? The END? These are words I don’t want to hear associated with my beloved Twilight saga. This is like reading the final page of Breaking Dawn all over again. This is like taking the last “leg hitch” picture with Stephenie Meyer. This is like Rob turning his back and walking away whenever I stalk see him at a work event (“Work” for me here on LTT/LTR. Not work for him. He likes it better when he sees me peeking through the bushes on his off-time) And the Twi-cast has the nerve to throw a PARTY for the “Wrap?” And since Kiowa called it the “final” Party, I guess we can assume there were MULTIPLE EVENTS “celebrating” this horrible time in all of our lives? Who celebrates tragedy? Who celebrates the DEATH of something you love?

But what has STRUCK me since I read the first whisper of the inevitable end is that the end is coming whether I’m ready for it or not. Which I’m not. I mean.. the END? It’s not like this Breaking Dawn shoot has been like Vancouver shoots of the past- we haven’t had the Father-Son trips to Olive Garden (Did we make that up or did they ever actually DO that?). Rob didn’t get lost in front of a church. There haven’t been any rumors about Nikki Reed freaking out about Robsten, late at night (although Perez Hilton posted a pretty great rumor about a fight between Ashley Green & Kristen Stewart!) and Bill Condon has turned out to be quite dull as compared to Chris Weitz & David Slade. But still.. THE END? No! Never! What will I do after THE END? And I don’t just mean “What will I write about on LTT after THE END?” (But I kinda mean that too) I just mean….. The Twilight saga & the shooting of its movies has been a part of my life for YEARS  now. Literally YEARS. And now… it’s over?  Sniff….

There are going to be lots of moments where we discuss “THE END” considering we have a lot of ends coming up- the end of Bella as a human; the end of Taylor Lautner’s relationship with whatever that girl’s name is that he’s dating now; the end of Chris Weitz responding to obnoxious, ridiculous questions from the fandom; the end of Ashley Green’s career; the end of the 100 Monkeys; the end of Kellan Lutz’s heterosexuality; the end of me going on about the end, but today I just want to be sad for a minute. About this Twilight milestone. Because while it means we’re one step closer to another movie and seeing Edward Cullen sexytimes and how in the world the movie makers will interpret the Jacob/Renesmee story-line without Chris Hansen arresting everyone who buys a movie ticket, it means that it’s all coming to a close. And I don’t know about you- but I’m not ready to say good-bye quite yet.

Don’t leaveeeeeeeeee me, Twilight!

What do you think about the END of Breaking Dawn filming? Does it make you sad? Do you think we’ll have enough to keep us entertained until the next movie comes out?

Seriously, Access Hollywood? Jennifer Love Hewitt to report from the Breaking Dawn Red Carpet?

Dear Access Hollywood and Jennifer Love Hewitt,

Really, J Love?

Seriously, girlfriend? And while we’re at it, SERIOUSLY Access Hollywood and Billy Bush? You asked Jennifer Love Hewitt to hit the Breaking Dawn red carpet with you this coming November? I mean sure, we weren’t on Party of Five and sure we don’t whisper to ghosts and ok, maybe we weren’t in a John Mayer video and we definitely weren’t engaged to Jamie Kennedy but COME ON we can do this!!! If that’s the kinda background and experience you’re looking for in a journalist to cover the Breaking Dawn Red Carpet than I’m sure we can make that stuff happen… I’m sure Fox will rehire that dude from Lost, and the rest of the Party of Five cast… the baby might be a bit old now but we can make Bailey love us! And I’m sure if I took a stroll down Sunset I could find Jamie Kennedy somewhere and make him fall madly in love with us. The ghost whispering thing might be a bit hard but DUDE we’re ready. Put us in the game coach! You need EXPERIENCED people on the carpet not starry eyed actresses with big racks. Heck, I’ve got a decent rack but I’ve also got GOOD QUESTIONS! We’ve got stuff Jennifer Love Hewitt’s never even thought to ask. She’ll be too busy asking Mike Welch where “Edward” is when we’d be asking him if TrimSpa (baby!) really works.

Would you rather have J Love, who at best has been on a couple tv shows and has access to Billy Bush (apparently) or us? Two girls who have interviewed Stephenie Meyer, Jackson Rathboner, appeared in an MSN series, stalked seen the cast at a billion events, AND been on TV ourselves and interviewed for mags tons of times ABOUT Twilight? We’ve got what you’re looking for and it’s NOT questions like “Team Edward or Team Jacob?” Clearly, the correct answer there is Team Billy Bush (wink wink!!). We’ve got questions like…

Yes, that's us... the old lady with a mic

(to everyone)

  • What do you do during the time when McDonald’s takes the McRib off their menu?
  • (to: Solomon Trimble, Taylor Lautner’s dad, Chris Hansen, the wig lady (defs on the red carpet))

Be honest, do you have Google alerts for your name and did you turn them off after we clogged you inbox?

  • (to the underage actors) Are you going to actually stay and watch the movie or will you head straight of the open bar at the after party? Follow up question: What’s your poison?
  • (to Stephenie Meyer) Have you ever called your husband Pancho, “Nacho” in the heat of the moment? Follow up: wanna go get margs after this and gossip! We swear we won’t tell!
  • (to BooBoo Stewart) If you had the gift of Xray vision instead of the Werewolf gene tonight- whose dress do you wish you could see thorugh right now and don’t say J Love Hewitt!

We'll gladly let Taylor hold an umbrella while we hold a bedazzeled AH mic on the carpet!

  • (to Taylor Lautner) Have you thought about opening up any Red Lobsters or McDonald’s franchises with all this money you’ve been making? It’s all about diversifying your portfolio!
  • (to Rob) True or False – when you and TomStu went underwear shopping last year you never actually bought the pack, did you? You just made it look that way so people would stop talking about your hygiene. You’re actually currently wearing a pair from 2001.
  • (to Kristen) Does it creep you out that people fantasize about your love life? Follow up question: how DOES the bearskin rug feel?

Ok, ok calm down Summit (or Access Hollywood) we’d never actually ask these questions… well maybe the X-Ray vision one but they’d be this fun we can promise that. So screw you Access Hollywood, you couldn’t handle our kind of awesome, keep your C-list actress correspondent and we’ll head straight to the top (aka behind the barricades with the confused homeless people). It’ll be YOUR lose. Besides, we clean up well!

This has been Moon direct from the office chair red carpet,
Themoonisdown

PS Jennifer Love Hewiit, we get it, you’re a fangirl like the rest of us… but trust us leave this to the professionals!

Can you guys believe this ish?! J Love is up before us?! UGH! The humanity, the unfairness of it all! What questions would you asked if you got on the BD red carpet?

Found in the LTT inbox….

Dear Twilight,

Not only did I get a sickness to end all sicknesses (not really, but I’m a big baby when it comes to pain or getting sick & I was pretty damn sick for about 5 days) but then I had to travel for work, so to say I’m lost when it comes to what is going on in the inter-workings of the fandom right now is an understatement (but besides the inevitable Robsten vs. Nonsten Twitter brawl & maybe a drunk tweet or two from Billy Burke, I bet I’ve missed nothing) So I’m so glad we have such a great group of readers who e-mail us (despite our now terribly embarrassing delayed response time) with stuff they come across in their daily lives.  Here is what I learned about what has happened recently in the world of Twilight:

More like “Super Gay”

Christina sent us this picture from the March 2011 issue if Cosmopolitan magazine. No- it’s not a “100 new positions to try so that your vampire husband doesn’t break your vagina” guide. Nor a “10 ways to remember your birth control when you go on your husband with your Vampire husband” list. It was titled “Superheroes We Wish Existed.” Christina lamented that this is getting slightly out of control and a little bit on the flamer side. I agree:

Wolfpire

(Don't they mean 1/2 Edward & 1/2 Jacob?)

Twilight invades our non-Twilight Lives

I don’t watch Parks & Recreation but I heard that they were planning on getting in some good Twilight jabs in last week’s episode. They did. And I laughed:

Fan Vids Bring it all back

I love fan vids & haven’t seen a good one in so long. I was so happy to have this emailed to us this weekend! GOOD fan vids are amazing- they bring back those feelings that sometimes seem so lost about the saga. They remind me why I loved it in the first place- Edward & Bella. I know this isn’t a unanimous thought about Eclipse, but I didn’t feel like it captured the real passion between Edward & Bella. I’m not sure the movies have really portrayed the love that Stephenie writes about in the books. But do you know what does? Fan videos. And they use the same clips as the movies. It’s just something about the way they are edited together & the music chosen along with the scenes- it reminds me what the story is actually about! So TIP FOR SUMMIT- pick your favorite fan video maker (or hey- run a contest!!) and give the winner access to specific scenes in Breaking Dawn- and have them create a video FOR the fans. A promo video that WE will love! DO IT DO IT! (If this doesn’t remind you why you love/loved Twilight- you don’t have a soul. You’re like Edward. Except not as hot. Probably. Unless you are as hot. Then send a pic)

2nd hand Embarrassment fail

Lastly, I always love opening the mail (electronically) and being 2nd-hand embarrassed by one of your horrible Twi-art finds.  When this one was described to me, I couldn’t WAIT to see it! My Little Pony decorated like the Twilight book covers? What could be more embarrassing?

Turns out I’m not embarrassed & I kinda want it for my collection. What happened to me? My childhood self & adult-self worlds are colliding! These little ponies are incredible!!

What’s next? Am I going to confess to owning Twilight-painted Chuck Taylors & a Cullen Boys Track Suit?

Until next time (with hopefully some real Twilight news!)

UnintendedChoice

Have you seen anything marvelous/horrible/interesting lately? Tell me how much you loved that fan vid!!
