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 http://www.TWIFANS.com 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 Moon Premiere – UC and Moon see cast, crew and Dick!

Dear New Moon,

We came (ahem), we sorta saw, we maybe conquered!

Since we didn’t camp out like the faithful Twihard fans we knew it would be a crap shoot showing up to the premiere in Westwood with a gaggle of girls, but UC needed to at least get a glimpse of Rob to make sure this last year wasn’t just a crazy psycho dream and these people that we talk about every day actually existed and since this we be my um.. forth time seeing Rob I was more than happe to give it a go! So we hauled booty over to where the entire fandom seemed to be converging. On our way we heard both KOL’s Sex on Fire and Miley Cyrus’ Party In the USA and knew it was an omen for good things ahead. Once we parked and headed towards the madness we saw Mr. Kaleb Nation aka The Twilight Guy headed in search of more glitter paint or maybe it was a restroom but we flagged him down and finally met someone we had been Twitter stalking for the last month. Another omen.

After that we pushed our way up to the barricade and ended up right across the street from the theater and the end of platform where the radio DJ guy was interviewing everyone as they showed up. We were also conveniently located next to at least two sets of crazy protesters. Why they thought the NM premiere was the optimal place for their protest posters and high pitched screaming, I’ll never know.

So here’s pretty much what happened…

We showed up to the premiere…


Look who was happy to see us!

Ok… ok… just kidding! I mean they were happy to see us they just didn’t know it.


Some lovely gal took our picture… right as a news van drove by and cut out the theater in the back ground! Thanks.

We were surrounded by crazy, loud, cool, and some totally awful fans…

obviously Rosalie Cullen got lost and ended up near the theater with her red wig


Robsten lives… in this 12yr olds heart

Follow the cut for a TON of pictures and video and crazy protesters and hot Rob and us!

All this and class too!

hot sauce!

hot sauce!

Dear Rachelle and Ashley-

If I was going to be a fake lesbian I’d totally choose you ladies.

You’re hot, wear awesome clothes, and you’re doing photo calls next to DIAMOND necklaces looking like extras from Mad Men (best show ever, just sayin). Now that’s what I call classy. You two seem like real gals gals AND girls who can be real with the boys too. And if you can do that, you are girls after my own heart.

Rachelle, I am in love with your hair… two hairdo’s ago I had your hair color and I kick myself every day for going darker. Being a redhead is my true calling in life, and you are a beacon in all this bleach blond playboy hair nonsense in California.

ashleyrachelle021

shoooooes!

Ashley, I heard that after you did this photo event you were spotted out with a friend getting pizza in jeans and tshirts. I think we’re meant to be BFF’s ladies. FYI

Ok can we all take a moment and look at THE SHOES. And the POCKET on the dress?!

Moment over.

Carry on ladies, CARRY ON!

Wishing we could share closets,
Themoonisdown

PS I TOLD you we’d get to some Twi-girl loving!
