Storytime with Moon: The Hot Topic New Moon Twi Tour kick off

Dear LTT-ers,

I ventured out last night with pals Ashley and Chelsea to attend the Twi Tour kick off at Hollywood & Highland with the stars and musicians of New Moon and boy did the stars ever show up! And here’s the story…

So 4 artists from the soundtrack, Band of Skulls, Sea wolf, Anya Marina and Death Cab for Cutie each played 2-4 song sets including their song from the soundtrack. I’m still at little sad that Death Cab only played 2 but oh wells there were bigger n better things to be had

Between each set was about a 15 minute break. We has wristbands for the signing but didn’t want to wait in a line that curled around the building with a bunch of people in New Moon shirts (tres embarassing) we wanted to see the bands and meet people! So we kept an eye on the line as we listened to each band, met Larry Carroll from MTV, met a radio station dude who wanted us to answer trivia (more on this later) and about a billion press folks and annoyed Hot Topic employees.

Finally it was time for us to run up to the signing. There were SO many cast members there that they broke them into two groups. Our group consisted of: Chaske, Kellan, Nikki, Kiowa and Cameron. We chose this group over Ashley/Elizabeth/Alex/Jared because we has already met Ashley and truth be told we really just wanted to hear some alpha wolf voice and exchange bitchface with Nikki.

Because the Hot Topic folks are meanies (aka wanted to keep the line moving) there were to be NO pictures or personal items signed but we had jorts and I told Ashley we should sneak them in! Chaske started signing our posters and I told him we brought some jorts for him to sign since the wolfpack made them famous but that they wouldn’t let us get them signed and he goes give them to me, I’ll sign them! So Ashley whips them out and Chaske begins signing them and Kellan sees this and he’s like WHAT?! And I say you know Jorts for the Wolfpack and he goes Not anymore! And whips them out of Chaske’s hand and starts signing them! The rest of the cast ends up signing the Jorts and now Ashley has a great keepsake! We chit chat some more with them and talk about where we all live and then it’s time to get the H out of the way. FYI Chaske and Kellan are good times! They talked our legs off and we were more than willing for it to happen. Too bad we couldn’t get Twicon/Prom pics with Kellan the whole encounter would have been complete. Like the Twilight circle of life!

TONS more after the jump. Video, pictures, stories, jorts, ROB!

Breaking Down Swiftner aka we heart Taylor Lautner and Taylor Swift HARD!

Dear LTT-ers and Robsteners,

We so get it now! After the pictures of the Taylors (aka Swiftner) came out this week and the ensuing letters I wrote to them UC and I fangirled out (it was mostly a lot of high pitched “oh-em-geeing) half the day about Swiftner and how much we loved them. I started watching the clips commenters posted in the letters to the Taylors post and I knew I had a new addiction. Here’s UC and I breaking it down…

The one where I “come out”
Moon:
I officially sound like the Swiftner version of a robsten fan*
UC hahahahahahha and i like it SO much more!
Moon Yes, it’s not nearly as annoying or annoying at ALL
UC RIGHT! just cute!
Moon dude ive SO watched like 2 videos of him at her concert in Chicago. Stop me
UC: hahahahahhahaha love it!
Moon: people are posting them in the comments. She sings 15 in the audience in front of Taylor and then comes to hug the folks where he’s sitting and when she hugs him and the crowd goes nuts. its SOOO embarrassing. im embarrassed for them. and then they do that lingering hand holding thing as she walks away. Swiftner lives folks! hahahaha
UC: awwwww!!!! sooo cute!!!!
Moon its super cute
UC dude.. that’s amazing. Send me the link to the video

Moon: OMG!!! HAHAHA its even more embarrassing from this other angle
UC: Watching! Awwww!
Moon SO CUTE!
UC he’s like “i love you” SOO cute! what if he sang? i’d die if he started singing along with her!
Moon: HAHAHAH they need to do a duet. I hope taylor has seen taylors crappy student video

Follow the cut to see us have an epiphany and plot our Swiftner love blog

Letters to Twilight in 10 words or less

Dear LTT-ers,

Just the other day I was talking to UC about how I wished I could just post two word letters or even three (go for the gold Moon!) because sometimes less is more especially when you see shiz like this:

Rob and Kristen spotted shopping in VINTAGE store

Dear Rob and Kristen,

Be less predictable.

Love your pal,
moon

So I decided to summarize the following Twi-news, pictures and what have you in 10 words of less… can I do it and still be semi funny? Will you love me when I fail miserably?

Let’s see shall we?

Your faithful servant,
Moon

Take the cut to see if I can do it!

It's your birthday… and other things

jackvampteethDear Jackson-

It’s your birthday and you’re 24! How exciting… I’m sure you’re getting all kinds of goodies from your parents and hopefully your pals are out getting you drunk (at a decent LA bar)… if they aren’t, call me and I’ll make it happen when I’m back in LA after xmas, I’m known for my birthday party ideas! Seriously. Anyway, since I’m sure you’re getting tons of cheesy stuff from fans I thought I’d give you what I like to call “Real Talk.” Simply put, I’m gonna give it to you straight…

I actually got the chance/pleasure/displeasure of seeing the show at the 24k last Tuesday… and I was a bit surprised I didn’t realize you were the ‘em cee’ / promoter of these nights! That was a fun little surprise but from one concert professional to another I really feel like I must share a few insights with you…

1. First, I totally respect and give you big ups for putting on a show at a small venue that focuses on local acts and ‘up n comers’ (ahem). BUUUTTT if you’re going to feature local acts at least choose artists that are actually GOOD, not just your friends. I mean the hulu/reggae cover of ‘wonderwall’ by that one band was more than I could take… followed by the avril/guitarman duo and then the hipster wanna-be rock band. WTF? seriously.

2. Invest in a proper sound guy. I haven’t heard that much feedback since I took the A/V class in junior high.

3. If your band is going to play, go on at a decent hour… take the good slot: midnight. not the closing hour slot. 2AM on a Tuesday is NOT pretty.

4. invite more of your twilight pals :D seeing Kellan was like a breath of fresh air in that stank bar. More on this later…

5. Pick a decent venue!! I can’t stress this enough. Get thee out of West Hollywood PRONTO! Talk about bad atmosphere and even lamer people. Come to the eastside I will show you all the good spots and get people who actually care about music to your shows. Imagine that.

Anyway pal, these are small fixable things that could make your shows a billion times better, trust me! And again props for putting on a local show… you’re a dying breed.

Smooches and ear plugs!
Me

P.S. I loved that plaid jacket…  and how you totally worked the room, you were definitely the ‘belle of that ball’ that night. I think you might be a really neat-o person if we were ever friends.
