Story time with Moon – Comic Con 2011

Dear LTT-ers,

A lovely story time with moon will be here once I’ve had time to upload my photos and find videos and finish this left over breaking dawn muffin that booboo served to me this morning. More on all of this later… After I sleep. And find my camera.

Your reporter in the field,
Moon

Dear Breaking Dawn,

It’s been one year since my last big Twilight related event and two years since my last Comic Con, so when you were going to be at this year’s Con I knew I had to be there… Here’s the story…


After one missed train and two missed trolleys, I finally made it down to “Tent City” sometime after midnight the night before the panel. Can I first interrupt and say they need a new name for “Tent City” as that is what they house prisoners in where I grew up (Arizona). New name needed stat!

.
While waiting for Hall H to open we took in some of the world’s finest people watching…

This guy was confused… it’s a Wolfpack not a pack of sintars friend! PS The back of this costume had little wheels (sorry to spoil the magic) that scratched across the ground when he walked and sounded like Ringwraiths from Lord of the Rings or nails on a chalk board or a pack of screaming wild she-beast Twilight fans… I guess it was good preparation for what we would encounter later in Hall H


Yup, Comic Con is a place where blue mohawks and Team Edward can coexist much to the chagrin of all the haters
.

We ran our arses back to the line because Summit trotted out the 2nd stringer cast members to serve us breakfast and sign autographs

And don’t worry I wasn’t above shoving my LTT Sigg bottle in her way so she would sign it… right next to the outline of Robsten! HA Jokes! The only thing I regret is not bringing the Fake Lesbians design. Fail.
.
I think I saw just about every major Twi site owner in line including these two lovelies from His Golden Eyes and The Twilight Lexicon
I decided to creep them out by tweeting them a picture of themselves blogging and tweeting from the line. Don’t mind me, I’m just stalking you…
.
And because there is nothing else to do in line but entertainin yourself by people watching becuse you have to save your cell battery and it’s hours till they open the doors I started seeking out the best fan shirts I could find. And wouldn’t you know it they were right around me. aka I’m lazy.
Trust me, click to enlarge, enjoy and laugh your arse off… or maybe set at your desktop background
.
About a billion light years (hey, it is Comic Con after all!) later they finally decided it was time to start the annual running the of the bulls Twilight fans. I don’t have any pictures after this because it got a little fuzzy, all I remember was yelling, no running, poor CC volunteers, elbows in my back and Olympic style speed walking.

Hall H – meaning heaven… HALE… hillbillies… hipsters… green Hornets… horny ladies… yup, I think we fiured out what H stands for.
.

Having been forewarned by UC and other tweeters that Rob had a “mohawk” we tentatively waited to see what that looked like and then finally we laid eyes on him…

This is essentially the same face we had upon seeing Rob’s shrunken toupee-askew hairdon’t WTF?! I mean it’s one thing to think it’s cool and rock the shit out of it, but it’s another to sit sidways the whole panel so we can’t see the weirdness head on.
O.
Once the screaming died down it was off to the races…


Right off the bat Rob threw his fetish girls a shout out with this water bottle pose…
..

Not to be out done he then went for this pose…

Knowing their audience and their love for dark, grainy, photoshop enhanced, are-they, aren’t-they, I lost my contact can you find it with your tongue in my mouth pictures, they threw a bone to the Robsteners with the occasional stolen whispered nothings between questions… or pretty much anytime Taylor or some rando was talking
.


Yea, having a faux pregnancy for a film made my boobs this big!! I’d call it sympathy hormones. Yes, please ask me more questions about pregnancy, audience when I am but a 21 year old girl who has never been pregnant, I only play one in a movie… GREAT QUESTIONS.

Srsly people?!

After an aptly time question from a dude for Rob and Taylor asking how it was to work with a lot of hot women these lovely ladies came out to help liven it up which was good because my latte had worn off and I could’t do one more “What was your favorite part of filming” or “Kristen, how did your personal experiences affect how you played a pregnant Bella?” Absurd.

Then these ladies came up and Nikki Reed made it hella awkward by acting super cagey when asked whether the cast would stay in contact after the movies were over. AWKWARD!!!

Wanna watch the whole thing?

Be our guest! Have fun deciding which question was the most cringe-worthy!
.

We were also treated to 2 clips from the movie that I can’t seem to find online an I’m SUPER surprised they weren’t up like 2 seconds after they played in Hall H. Well done Summit, scaring the SHIIIZZZ outta everyone.


I really hope this whole sheer shirt/black bra look catches on as the next KStew fashion statement that Twi fans pick up. Anything’s gotta be better than the shirt knot. PLEASE Kristen fans let’s make this new look happen.

More to come here!

Once all that Twilight hub bub was over and once we drowned our frazzled nerves in a few gallons of Diet Coke we headed over to the exhibit hall and wouldn’t you know it we saw an Alpaca!


.


Why, yes I did walk around San Diego unashamedly drinking from the Edward the Insurance salesman Breaking Dawn swag cup. Ain’t no thang.

Be Back with more later!

Storytime with Moon: People’s Choice Awards 2011

R: OMG we're at a People's Choice Awards... K: just smile.... T: HAHAHAOMGHA

Dear LTT-ers,

Wednesday night I hoofed it all the way from West Hollywood to Downtown LA to attend the People’s Choice Awards with @bitemebaker and the lovely gals from Twilightish. Sadly, the drivers of LA did NOT know where I was headed and decided to hold up traffic like it was Sunday driving time with their grandma’s. Didn’t they know I had to see whether the trinity would  take pity on us poor poor sad bored fans and give us a little tiny clip of something from Breaking Dawn, ANYTHING? Well spoiler alert: They didn’t! And didn’t the drivers of LA know I needed to get to the Nokia Theater to see whether Kid Rock would wear leather or fur? Spoiler Alert: he wore BOTH (swoon/vom.). No, they didn’t but maybe the driver’s of LA knew I didn’t need to see Selena Gomez “perform” whatever her song is and didn’t need to see Johnny Depp not show up to accept an award that Rob didn’t win. So as it turns out the drivers of LA know me pretty well and getting to the awards almost an hour late was perfect because I sat down right as AnnaLynn McCord was coming out to present! Oh memories…. I was hoping she’d get an award for People’s Choice for best deep throating of a fruit or vegetable but sadly she lost. I mean she presented something else.

Never thought I'd say Ashley Tisdale was the luckiest girl on the stroll last night

So it must be known that the trinity wasn’t ushered in till right before Kristen’s award where they shuffled in whoever was going to win next to sit in the front row with the only semi celeb they could get to show up and stay in the audience: Ashley Tisdale. So either the Summit private jet was late in arriving or Rob, Kristen and Taylor had WAY more fun getting plastered (on virgin cocktails of course) at the open bar backstage with Jenny Anisten. Easy choice.

How did we spot them you ask? Well I noticed good ol Dean standing down in the front row and I was like wow that big dude looks like Dean and maybe that guy sitting down kinda has Taylor’s complexion… and wow, is that Kristen’s hair and ok that must be Rob in that weird tan colored jacket. Wait, doesn’t he know it’s January, aren’t there some kind of fashion rule about that? Then I stopped talking to myself and we all stood up to get a better look and twwwwweeeet.

Move bitch, get out the way!

They sat down on the front row and any time a commercial break happened Dean would stand up and then like 10 dudes would rush in from stage right and surround them. It became clear why this was necessary when some girl made an ill prepared attempt at trying to meet the trinity and instead got one-hand-Heismen-trophy-posed out of the way by Dean. It was amazing. And then sad because the trinity has to be protected like the latest shipment of Air Jordans to your local Foot Locker. Then I remembered they make a billion gajillion dollars and a felt less sad for them.

This is what it looked like when I took a covert cell phone shot. MOooohahahaha
(Please love the care and precision with which this image was made)

So then finally Kristen won the award for best actress or whatever and Taylor became my favorite by helping Kristen up the stairs by taking her hand. Start some conspiracies yall, just cause I love them so much! It’s a PR ploy you guys! It’s really Taysten! Krislor lives! Ok, whatever Kristen goes up there and thanks everyone blah blah blah.

Another commercial break and Queen Latifah breaks through Dean and the defensive line down front to say hi to the Trinity.

and then we were witness to one of the more embarrassing moments of the twidom.

I know it’s all in good fun and it’s Queen Latifah trying to be cute and MAN are those guys good sports (give the trinity snaps) but seriously? Cause I was 2nd hand embarrassed and I was like hundreds feet away from them and I was shrinking in my seat. It was embarrassing as a Twifan. ugh. We are not all lunatics (says the twiblogger).

Is this really happening to us??

Mercifully some producer saves us all and wrestles the mic away from Queen Latifah so someone could give out an award. At this point the trinity was not being ushered out so I knew we had to be at the end of the show and it was pretty clear Twilight “won” for best movie. I mean it’s the People’s Choice awards they give the award to whoever shows up.

Ashton Kutcher took a night off filming Canon Camera commercials to come give away an award with Princess Amidala and SHOCKER Twilight WON!!!! ZOMG!!! I had no idea it would!!!!!

The trinity ascended to the stage and thankfully Rob recognized his and Kristen’s lack of public speaking prowess and pushed Taylor up to accept the award. Taylor recited his lines correctly but BONUS he made an awkward refrence to Katy Perry’s joke/euphamism about the awards being heavy like her boobs. UMMMM awkward turtle!!! Either Taylor got the joke or he made it even funnier by NOT getting the boob reference. Either way WIN. Then I crossed my fingers Taylor would surprise us with a teeeny tiny clip, a flash, a picture ANYTHING from Breaking Dawn but alas. NOTHING. Help us out Summit!! The natives are getting restless! I’m scared!

I'd like to thank John Stamos without whom this outfit would NOT be possible!

Next, Kristen said some stuff and her dress strap fell while talking and Taylor, being the gentleman he is, rushed to push it up. CONSPIRACY!!! PLOYS!!!! (anyone, anyone?!). Then Rob said some stuff and thanked John Stamos for letting him raid the “Jesse Catsopulous Closet” while he was at the party last summer.  Then they all got on a private jet parked on the roof of the Nokia and flew back to the town with no cameras, paparazzi or internet access, better known as Baton Rouge.

The end.

Congrats to Twilight for winning some People’s Choice Awards! Now give me a set picture and no one get’s hurt.

Did you watch? Were you in ANYWAY surprised they won? Were you making hoping JUST A LITTLE that there would be something special? Did you feel box blocked? Also share your conspiracy theories!

Thanks Eclipsemovie.org, Robsessed, whoever tagged some of these photos, Twilightish

Oh- we ruled at blogging today and BOTH posted on LTT- so don’t miss the other letter for today!

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!
Oh- We don’t want to forget to tell you, starting January 3rd the Biggest Loser challenge on the Forum (renamed “Resolutionary Challenge 2011″) is kicking off: Make sure you join everyone if you’re looking for fun, encouragement & healthy living in 2011!!! Resolutionary Challenge 2011
