Ashley meets David Slade and he gives us something to smile about!

(Because “The Man” won’t just let me be great and blog for a living I was off working when my good pal Ashley (and our friends Allison and Kim from Twifans) got to meet David Slade at a special signing in Burbank last Saturday. Ashley tells the tale and has a special greeting for you all from David!)

WTF's a leghitch?!

Dear LTT/LTR readers and 2010 #Leghitchers,

This has been a VERY exciting week in the Twilight world, hasn’t it? It seems as though the excitement and LUCK keeps escalating as we get closer to the release of Eclipse. Last week Moonie and I saw Rob on Leno and then had the pleasure of meeting his lovely parents, Dick and Clare, after wards. And just 6 days ago, Moon and UC were getting the lowdown and discussing Twi-secrets with the Goddess herself Stephenie Meyer over some hand-dipped “Team Edward” and “Team Jacob” chocolate strawberries for 4 HOURS. Very dream-like indeed.

And on Sunday, I had the pleasure of meeting my FAVORITE director of the series yet, David Slade.
He did a signing in Burbank, CA at a small store “Dark Delicacies”.  I arrived and to my relief did NOT see 200 people waiting and standing in line. I ran into the lovely ladies over at and about 30 other people. He was signing Eclipse posters for everyone!

As I approached the signing table, I introduced myself and said that I’m associated with “Letters to Twilight”.com and shook his hand. (He was just as nice and lovely as I had expected him to be.) I told him how grateful the fans were that he kept in contact with us VIA Twitter during the whole movie-making process.
Some questions I had answered:

Ash: “What was one of your favorite moments during filming?”
David: “The garage scene between Jacob and Bella. I just really liked it.
Ash: “What’s one cinematographic thing we can watch for in the movie? Was there something visually striking that you were really happy with that we should look for?”
David: “I’m going to leave that up to you guys to figure out.

Our friends at Twifans took a video of David talking and answering more questions.
WARNING. There are SOME Eclipse spoilers:

(editor note: I LOVE these girls!!)

Also somewhere in the conversation I told him how grateful we were for the “Leg hitch” scene and that we have a block of 30 seats reserved at the Arclight for the midnight showing–and that our Twitter group is the 2010 #Leghitchers. He was VERY impressed at that number of fans we have flying in and thought it was a very clever idea for Twitter to have a group like that. He also said that the Arclight has the BEST quality movie reel possible. So, of course, ladies, David Slade sends his love to the #Leghitchers:

Are you prepared for the movie release? I’ve got my jorts packed!

Love and Leghitches,
Ashley aka @paleochicksdigs

LOVE IT!!! David’s debonair meets cheeky expression and the fact that our official LTT screening of Eclipse will feature the BEST print of the movie out there according to David Slade! So much win, Ashley thank you for reporting live from the scene of Dark Delicacies, which sounds like a weird Occultist shop meets grocery store. Please tell me they had Team David chocolate covered strawberries for all the guests that day! What are you most excited to see in Eclipse? What about David Slade makes you excited or scared for Eclipse??

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

New Level of dedication: Twilight Flow Chart

Dear Twilight,

Yesterday, UC and I were having a discussion about the Wolfpack ladies. UC kept confusing Tinsel Korey with Julia Jones and I was kept confusing Julia Jones with January Jones who she most certainly isn’t and it became clear: We needed a flow cart to remember all these new folks and how they’re all connected in the Twilight world. So I set out to create a master flow chart and as the day wore on (and on) and I remembered more and more connections and it become more of a circle flow chart, cause just like Rafiki tells us: it’s the circle of life and it moves us all.

And what came out looks a lot like a grade school project… next up book reports and a diorama of Bella’s room in a shoe box.

Yea, this is what you do with your spare time when you’re a Twilight blogger.

Twilight Dork of the Day Award Recipient/Life Time Achievement Nominee,

Jashley – The Jackson Rathbone and Ashley Greene Movement begins!

Dear LTT-ers,

It’s no secret that I love me some Jackson and Ashley, in fact I think they feel the love around here a lot and Jackson is definitely a hot topic over  on the forum. Maybe it’s the fact we’re BFF’s, or maybe it’s the fact they play Jasper and Alice, or maybe it’s just cause they’re so darn cute and REAL. But whatever the reason is I’m starting the Jashley movement here at LTT. I know it’s no uncommon desire that folks want to see them together but I’m gonna take it to the next level. I was talking to UC this afternoon while sifting through pictures for something we’re working on and of course we ended up on the Vanity Fair pics where Jackson and Ashley are sittin’ uh… pretty and we got to talking about them and I confided in UC about my deep deep love for them. Not that she didn’t already know but it needs to be said: I feel for Jackson and Ashley how the Robsten folks feel for Rob and Kristen. Only I care way less. Like waaaaay less.

And so she wanted to know what us Jackson/Ashley devotees called them… what was their celeb couple name? Jackash? Why no, it’s actually Jashley… at least that’s what they tell me. And by they I mean I made it up while scouring the interwebs trying to match pictures of shirts that they both wore. Does this hole line up to the hole on her shirt? Nope, damn. NEXT.

Excuse you, this is Jashleyan!

Excuse you, this isn’t Jashleyan!

Then I told her I also have pictures of Jackson near a plane with some flight attendants and obviously it’s from when Jackson secretly came to LA for 3 hours to visit Ashley last weekend.  I sent it to all major news outlets and  no one cared. So then I emailed Ted C. telling him I had the scoop on Jashley and he should forget that whole Robsten thing. Sadly, he emailed back and asked: “Who the ef is that?!” Funny thing though, I checked back a day later and he had already started a Jashley catagory on the Awful Truth, complete with videos from LTT! See, the movement is catching!

Here's proof! It's the truth!

Here’s proof! It’s the truth!

So convinced was I of this coupling I started scouring old Jackson and Ashley interviews till I found this gem, in an interview with the Australian Herald Sun, which is I’m sure Australia’s MOST respected news outlet, Ashley said:

“He and I both don’t have time to date, but we do have amazing chemistry,” she says.

“We both have such big crushes on each other and it clearly shows. We got along instantly and the day we met, he was teaching me how to swing dance.

“He (Rathbone) does everything. He sings, he dances, and he’s so sweet. Even my mum has a crush on him and tells me, ‘You should date him’. So, who knows, maybe when we both stop running around the world.”

And even thought this quote is from back in April, if it helps my case obviously it’s true right? So yes, Jackson and Ashley please stop ‘running around the world’ so you can become Jashley and I can squee with happiness! Or just go on about my life like any other day.

Ok kids, off to start Jashley Lives!

Don’t miss ol Robbie Roo and UC’s letter to him!
