What everyone was really thinking at Comic Con 2012

Act excited…

Dear LTT-ers,

So as you know if you were following along last week I was at Comic-Con repping for us here (duh), That’s Normal and Nerd Girls everywhere.

It all started off with a bang, no I didn’t  meet up with the Game of Thrones boys the night before, I was invited to attend the press conference before the Fan Panel on Thursday. Can we first talk about how weird it is that in the last year LTT has gone from non-official red headed step child of the Twilight fan sites/blogs to official red-headed step child of the Twilight fan sites/blogs? Cause, yea it’s weird, but also super cool because YOU guys deserve it. We’ve bee together since 2008 loving on and making fun of Twilight.

So since I didn’t have a camera man (UC with my dad’s camcorder) with me I’ll leave the video stuff up to the professionals. And trust me it was mostly the same stuff we’re all used to. You know the “What was your favorite scene to film?” “Where there any pranks on set?” “Is Robsten’s love a pure as the driven snow?” “Have you tried the new Raspberry Lemoncello refresher from Olive Garden, Taylor?” Ok, so maybe some of those weren’t asked but as Buttcrack Santa is my witness I WILL ask what the cast orders off In-n-Out’s secret menu AND I will ask them to also play “Fuck, Kill, Marry” like we did with Stephenie. SOME DAY. Y’all. Some day. Anyhoo lots of questions were asked and I must say Kristen was super on her game, engaging, answering questions, saying “man” A LOT. Taylor was being Taylor, Rob was off in never never land for a good part of it but his best moments were when he started asking Stephenie questions. All was dandy and fun and I enjoyed drinking tons of little free bottles of Diet Coke while I sat between the Australian woman and the dude from Latino Review (who knew?)…

And then I cried…

Ok, not really but I’m not gonna lie if you looked at me during this moment I may have either been chopping onions on the front row next to this loud Australian woman with neon pink toes or I was having a moment. I think as I was sitting there I finally let it sink in that we’re in the home stretch and that this will essentially all be over in November. And how much what Stephenie and Taylor and Kristen were saying could be said by any one of us.

So on a cloud of wistfulness I ran over to get into the fan panel in Hall H to see what clips would be shown and what awesomely awkward fan questions would be asked. After doing some sweet talking to the psycho Hall H line police dude in a white cowboy hat (I know) I ran in just in time to grab a seat next to the best and brightest (BrookeLockart, Lolashoes, TBY789 and Ms. Myra McEntire) and of course the hecklers. After all we were pretty far back.

Since none of us wants to ctrl + some crappy cell phone pictures I took let’s leave this to the professionals again… but ya know with a little bit of what was REALLY happening…


GUISE!!! I’m here! And guess what! I’ve got my shit together this time! I look great, I’ve figured out how to wear sneakers with nice outfits and not look like I’m trying too hard, my hair looks pleasantly tousled, I have great answers prepared for you, my makeup is on point, I don’t look like Joan Jett on a bender, my nail polish is of some color that the internets will freak over……. oh what’s that you say, this is the LAST one and we’ve done like a billon of these things before and I only just figured it out? Well what can you do?


Damnit. They tricked me again. This is SO not an all you can eat In-N-Out. I should have known an all you can eat In-N-Out was too good to be true. They so owe me. Oh look Sailor Moon!


Yea, no.


Oh these heels? Ain’t no thang.


Hey Ashley, did you know I just had a kid with Sheilawhatsname? Yea, cause I did. And you didn’t. And we’re totally happy and it was totally planned and you’re totally sad about it, right?

.
.


That’s her!! The creepy one who always sits behind the mic! Get her Dean!
.


Teach me how to Dougie, tea-teach me how to dougie!

(click to enlarge this ish!)

Later in the afternoon I participated in some round table interviews with the cast but since we are now an official red headed step child of the Twilight fan sites/blogs we have to wait on that for a bit. So get yourselves prepared for that exciting post and a few other more exciting posts coming up!

Until next year Comic Con! Oh wait *cries*
Moon

PS I have tons more from Comic Con but I’ll post that and all my odds and ends another day.

So did you see the clips they showed the attendees of the fan panel? Getting even more excited?

ARE YOU SCARED ABOUT THE ENDING OF BREAKING DAWN PART 2?

Dear The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 (breathe),

We’ve all read the book (this is your queue to leave if you haven’t read the book & don’t know how the saga ends– there will be spoilers. ALSO a Harry Potter spoiler. I know, random.) and we know it ends happily for all involved– especially us fans. Most authors don’t actually give us what we want and keep families and friendships and lovers intact, but Stephenie Meyer said “Screw Shakespeare and that tragic ending stuff. Move over JK Rowling and your need to kill off beloved characters. This book is ending HAPPILY.” And it did. And I was happy. SUCCESS STEPHENIE.

Okay, okay– Romeo and Juliet wouldn’t BE R&J had they not died tragically. And after that many years and that many characters, with many loved characters dying previously, we should’ve seen that one coming in Harry Potter. And sure maybe Breaking Dawn would have more critical acclaim had some key characters been killed in an EPIC battle at the end, but screw critics! I wanted to walk away from that story remembering Bella & Edward’s love, that kid they had that kinda grew on me, and Alice & Jasper, Emmett & Rose & Carlisle & Esme all living happily together– enjoying Thanksgiving dinner with Charlie & Sue & Jake cutting up Renesmee’s deer hyde for her and even Leah stopping over for dessert with her new hunky beau from a neighboring tribe. I WANTED TO FANTASIZE ABOUT THAT. And I did. 

BUT THEN WE SEE THIS IN THE MOST RECENT TRAILER:

HEY! I’ve never been to a Thanksgiving gathering that looked like this….

WHAT is this!? A FIGHT scene? I don’t remember people running towards each other at the end of the book– unless of course they are running into each other’s arms to embrace & apologize for all the hate they had moments prior. This better be the tryouts for some vampire/wolf sporting event. They better not be messing with my perfect fantasy ending of a big wolf-vampire-half human holiday gathering.

So what is Beller doing here? Why is she running?

Leah doesn’t get to call Chris Hansen. I get to be the one to call!

Is she just running into Edward’s arms? Has it been more than 30 minutes since they looked at each other? Is she running to tell Jacob that Chris Hansen is on his way? Did she found out how hot Nahuel is & is running to warn Jacob he might actually have to worry before one of the wolves jokes around that he has lost Renesmee to an Amazonian?

And where is Edward rushing off to here?

oh $h!t! I just realized I forgot to put on deodorant today!

It can’t possible towards the Volturi because that wouldn’t end well. Did he hear a snack on the other side of the woods? Is he concerned about Beller’s vicious appetite & that she can’t even resist the last lone mother deer left in the woods and whose death would mean her fawn would be the an orphaned Bambi? Did Emmett tell him about a new sex move to try with Bella in their private cabin?

Because the’re not running for any sort of battle, that’s for damn sure.

Love,
UnintededChoice

Let’s get Twilosophical for a quick sec:

What do you think about the ending? Are you concerned with what you saw here in the trailer? Are you afraid that the screenwriter & Bill Condon’s creative representation of the book is going to add some sort of battle that was never meant to be there? Do you think they’d actually kill someone just to give movie goers (who haven’t read the book) some excitement at the end?

I really am glad no one dies in the books. And I don’t know what all the running & battle set up really means, but I don’t think it means a Vampire/Wolf war breaks out and blood is shed. However… I can see how they might consider killing someone off in the movie for artistic sake. And I think the ending might be slightly different than in the book. And I’m okay with that.

And I have to admit….while I wouldn’t have been okay with it at all, I can see how literarily it would have made sense to have someone or some people die at the end of the book. But that’s a different letter coming soon ” WHO STEHPHENIE COULD HAVE KILLED OFF.” You might be surprised what we think…… Dun Dun Dunnn

Oh hey– have you been following our newest venture: That’s Normal?  We’re on Tumblr for now. Please read a recent confession I made during a chat with an internet support rep. Plus Like us on Facebook & Follow us on Twitter!

JD Pardo – We’ll do shot with you any day. If we can find an open bar.

Dear JD,

Remember when– we had no idea who you were last week? And even when you told us who you played we barely remembered? And then we were downright shocked when you said Nahuel was 150 years old. As if the Jacob imprinting on baby Renesmee wasn’t weird enough, this is another level. Cause CLEARLY SMeyer sets the end Of Breaking Dawn up with a new love triangle, Renesmee, Jacob and Nahuel. We’re on to you Stephenie. Also we desperately need to read Breaking Dawn again, this is crazy and we’ve forgotten some key plot points apparently.

ANYWAY.Can we also can tell you about how UC was talking with Calliopeblabs yesterday about you  and how you’re “the male renesmee” and she looked at UC, shocked and said “What? there’s a MALE renesmee?” Yea. So clearly you AND Nahuel have a lot of ground to cover in the whole character awareness department between now and November. But we’re pretty sure the loin clothe will make up for that. Trust me, we know this audience.

Cause this is normal

We have to say you might be one of our new favorite Twilight people (hahaha yes, you’re considered that now) because you stopped being polite and started getting REAL. No we weren’t on the Real World but you talked to us about stuff besides character development and the movie and blahblahblaaahblah. Important stuff like your favorite LA bars, what non-Tom Hanks movies are your favorite, why we should defs take those free archery lessons and how it’s hard out there for a Gucci model. OH WAIT. No.

After the night mercifully ended without those shots UC kept trying to push on us we went home to do some Google stalking research.

Things we found out about you -

The photos on your IMDB really don’t do you justice, whoever chose those should be fired and replaced be us. We would love to add “IMDB Picture Choosers” (technical term) to our business cards (under Vampire bloggers, Ryan Gosling enthusiasts, Froyo specialists and Gin taste testers, natch).

Witness:

The Gucci days?? We hope.

From your audition from the OC??

May we suggest one of these:

I might also suggest sending you for some new headshots. We know a great photographer who would shot you in the forest (aka Griffith Park) wearing cocktail dresses reading Twilight magazine. Not that we would have ANY personal first hand experience with this, but it’s just a hunch. Let us know, we’ll hook it up!

Yup, just as normal

So in our research we also found out you were on the OC, our most favorite show of all time as “Tattooed surfer / Tattooed Guy.” Clearly, a character almost as awesome as Seth Cohen. ALMOST. This also puts you in the special Twilight/The OC club along with Jackson Rathbone and Cam Gigandet. Nice work.
The most exciting thing though is that you’re going to be the “bow and arrow guy” (official character name according to us) on the new NBC/JJ Abrams show Revolution. No joke we were super pumped before we even knew you and know we’re even more excited cause we sorta talked to you one night and you’re IN the show with a Mr. Billy Burke. Can you get him to drunk Tweet again? That was always a good time. ANYWAY. Check it y’all!

Yup. You’re the Katniss of the new JJ Abrams show, congrats! And congrats on getting a semi nice letter from us, obvi we sorta think you’re cool.

Can’t wait to see Nahuel in November!

Shots!
Moon & UC

PS We already checked the Mega Bus schedule. See you in Wilmington.

Breaking Down the new Vamps from the teaser trailer

Dear LTT-ers,

By now we’ve all watched the Breaking Dawn Pt 2 teaser trailer like 30942390424 times and we have like 2309483094234 theories as to how it’s all going to play out. BUT in the mean time UC and I decided to break down the latest crop of vampires from what we could see of them in the trailers.

Moon: Let’s take a peek at some of these new vampires in action as seen on these screencaps at the Lex.

UC: This image, It’s Either Justin Chon mid-orgasm OR that guy from Twilight at the restaurant who says something about cats and sex
UC: money. sex. money cat
Moon: its one of justin chon‘s daily toilet pics from instagram (if you’re not following JC (just made that up) on instragram, DON’T start now, this is a real thing)
UC: hahahhahaha
.

Moon: this i like CANT EVEN


Moon:
they took a HOT dude ……..


UC: and turned him into a PORN star
Moon: No, they turned him into a homeless Nickleback fan
UC: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHA. you win.
Moon: thats probably an Ed Hardy tank top under there
Moon: the man jewelry, the eye liner. he’s like a frying pan and a yellow douchey lamborghini away from being Guy Fieri
Moon: whatever middle aged mom from the wardrobe dept was put in charge of him and this look should be shot and buried under an Oakley’s store in the mall
UC: he for SURE found every dive bar in vancouver
Moon: Also look, Jerry is in the background
Hi Jerry!

UC: and that albino!
Moon: and that other dude we met who had the bad cell phone camera (According to HIM at dinner Tues. night but that’s a whole other post)!
Moon: they should have premiere swag bags with phones in them. for that guy and toni trucks (beep) alone.
.
UC: Speaking of Guyliner….. This is the son from 7th heaven right? Just in goth wear:

Moon: thats the prospector/mountain man version of Michael Sheen/Aro. That’s his disguise for spying on BellER and Edward
Moon: It says Joe Anderson as Allistair. I wonder if he has a better cell phone camera…
UC: Ohhhh Joe Anderson. OF coURse. how could I NOT realize
Moon: IMDB tells me he was in a lot of good movies and that he is another semi hot dude made to look like a crazy person
UC: oh WOW
Moon: he’s also like my age
UC: you’re right. pretty attractive made to look UNattractive… b/c apparently that’s what we do to vamps these days
Moon: and allistair looks about 50 and grizzled in that pic
.

Moon:  OH hey it’s that Rascal Flatts guy
UC: oh yhea– in the far left… look like he’s about to break into a song about the small working class town of Forks. A power ballad
Moon: GOD BLESS THE BROKEN ROOOOAD THAT LED ME STRAAAIGHT TO FOOOORKS
ohhhh oohhhhh oooooo
UC: “WHAT HURTSSSS THE MOST. IS WHEN I GIVE BIRTTHHH TO A HALF VAMP….”
Moon: LIFE IS A VOLVOOOO I WANNA DRIVE IT ALL NIGHT LONG
UC:  you googled them too for lyrics, right?  :)
Moon: hahahaha oh yea… totally googled them… didn’t know those at all.  ;) not.at.all.


Moon: FINALLY some rami malek up in this piece!
UC: oh finalllyyyy
Moon: using the force to stop that waterfall
UC: even though I was fairly confident that was Jacob at first look but dangggg…. he’s like Moses up in this piece
UC: oh you already said up in this piece
Moon: HAHAAH. Yes, it’s getting very gangsta in here. The Malek brings it out in us.
.

Ok, so we know we Tweeted about our super secret meeting but as you probably saw on the twitters UC and I were invited to an Edit Bay visit with Bill Condon along with some of the other Twilight sites/blogs. We can’t tell you much YET about it but it involved watching two clips, a little q&a about Breaking Dawn Pt 2 and maybe  a little trophy with a lamb on top. We’ll have more from that soon. AKA whenever we won’t be sued over talking about it.

Love ya like Garrett loves Ed Hardy, Jeigermeister and a bleach blond,
Moon & UC

Thanks to the Lexicon for letting us jack these screenshots from them.

SOOOOOOO whatdddya think of the new vampires. Will you be able to watch without thinking of country music or 7th Heaven or Canadian rockers now? Yea, we didn’t think so!

Reasons why we should care that BD wins the day at MTV movie awards.

Dear Breaking Dawn Part 1,

Let’s be honest… we’re all Hunger Games fans right? And we liked Harry Potter even though it seems like that was out ages ago. And DUH Bridesmaids it the world’s best gift to movie making, so the fact that you’re up against these 3 movies for Best Picture at the MTV Movie Awards this year is tough. Oh yeah, plus The Help. Which really seems too good to be up for a popcorn award, but I digress.

So no matter what movie wins, it’ll be a good night (unless The Help wins which would be weird), but I’ve compiled  some reasons why we should care that Breaking Dawn Part 1 should win all the MTV movie awards it’s up for this year:

1) We want to see which TGIF character Rob comes dressed as this year (Remember Uncle Jesse Rob? Have Mercy)

2) ROBSTEN KISS.
Duh. Who doesn’t want to see them almast kiss for the gazillionth time? (ME!) And you KNOW we can’t miss the tweets from both sides proclaiming how “FAKE” they are or how they should just “DO IT” on stage to prove to the haters that their love is real. I just hope an audience member is smart enough to smuggle in their bear-skin rug to throw up on stage in case the mood is right.

EPIC Copstache

3) Unlike the other movies, we have copstaches in our movie. And copstaches should always win.

4) Our movie doesn’t start with an H, and therefore should just win by default

5) Rob is in also in the Harry Potter series which should give Breaking Dawn Part 1 two chances to win. Better chance= automatic win (LTT rules of life are so much better than normal rules of life)

6) And you thought Edward & Jasper’s hair was weird. Have you SEEN the hairstyles in The Hunger Games?

7) It would really be unfortunate to have every housewife/aunt/grandma/mom on earth coming after J Lawrence when Katniss beats out Bella, right?

8) Breaking Dawn is the only story focused on a love story out of the 5. And by “love story” I mean it’s the only movie with headboard-breaking sex.

9) Without the Twilight fandom, there would BE no Hunger Games fandom (Thank you Stephenie Meyer!)

Twilight 4 the win! Down with the capital!!

Love,
UnintendedChoice

Green is Good. So are golden onions

So seriously: Robsten needs that almost-kiss & it would be sad to give Twilight a send out without a win, right?

Vote for Best Kiss: http://bit.ly/BD1MTVBK

Vote for Best Picture: http://bit.ly/BDMOTY

And life will be good. Very good. Like as good as green. Because, you know, green is, what? Goooood….

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