Storytime with Moon & UC Part 2 – #RIPTwilight and the premiere!

Dear LTT-ers,

I’ll be taking over the story time here from UC to bring you the rest of our Twilight time which mostly included the Premiere and Steve Urkel. Yea, I don’t know either but at least it wasn’t the Jenner sisters or Tia and Tamara or Jennifer Love Hewitt (AGAIN) like last year. We stepped up in the TGIF star echelon.

So let’s cut out the chit chat and get to the video we spent a billion hours on. You better like it…


No, we’re not street walkers working the corner of Fig and Chick Hearn waiting for some Lakers to get out of practice, this is just us with ALL our stuff. Yes, we had a cart full of gear and yes, that’s Jumping Rob under UC’s arm. What was in the cart? Well, tons of camera equipment, our “charging station” (mophie’s for our phones and anything with a USB), the props that keep Jumping Rob upright and little bottles that we were going to give out before someone told on us and as luck would have it that freaking Josh Horowitz took our idea and did shots with cast members. Wah wah waaaaaah.


Time to get this partaaaay started.


Our partners in crime… aka Twilightish and Fangirlish these girls


The official line up… oh what’s that I see??? LTT AND That’s Normal?! We have arrived. And departed…


There was a tampon on the red carpet. Yeaaaa, we don’t know either, but I’m sure someone was missing that at some point.

.


One last time… all the your favorite fan sites repping for the fans and the not-so-fans at the premiere. TwilightGuy, Team Twilight, Series Theories, Twilight Lexicon, TwilightMoms, Twilight Source (Hypable), BreakingDawnMovie.org, His Golden Eyes/Page to Premiere, Bella and Edward, Twilightish, Fangirlish, LTT, That’s Normal, Twifans and Twilight Anonymous. Whew that was a mouthful!
.

While we were busy “working” this creep was behind us acting all awkward. Someone should have called security.
.


They were just as ugly as you imagined them to be. Kind of like candy cane versions of those hideous platform foam flips flops all the girls used to wear only uglier. And more expensive.



I have nothing to say other than look how cute she is?! And did you see how much she wanted to sit next to Nutty Madam when she watched the movie for the first time? Too cute.


You already saw the video of Nikki singing at the fan concert now here is her talking about it. Honestly, I don’t remember this at all because I think we were about to get Taylor so I let UC take this
one.


Urkel (aka Jaleel White, extra credit to me for knowing that) showed up looking like his alter ego Stephon Urkele. No, he didn’t ask if he smelled cheese and yes, there was some crazy lady (boobs and blond hair in the background) who bum rushed him while he was talking to us bloggers and asked for a picture. Why, I am NO idea. Of all the stars to crash an interview to get a picture with you choose Steve Urkel.



This guy found the little bottles stashed in our caddy and got trashed. He had a blast.


JD charming Kimmy from His Golden Eyes/Page to Premiere.


Remember when we were all over Jackson? Remember when he was trying to make 100 Monkeys happen and it was awful? Remember when he wore that terrible crushed velvet suit to the premiere last year? Well, that Jackson is no more, help us welcome back AWESOME, HOT, SWOON-ABLE Jackson Rathbone. We’ve missed you man.


This is the best shot we could get of LTT hero and reader favorite Catherine Hardwicke. We didn’t get to ask her whether she still watched the audition tape every day or whether she preferred Cougaritas to Mudslides or Fridays to Applebees. Oh well… we’ll always have the memories, friends.
.


Yes, there was a dog with a Team Jacob bandana on the carpet who hung out in front of us for most of the night and right when it looked like a cast member was headed towards us they’d detour to the freaking dog. God bless America, thanks for your sacrifice dog and soldier. (No really, we mean it).


This is the best shot we could get of Nikki Reed, Peter Facinelli and the newest Twilight cast member: Paul McDonald. He plays the American Idol vamp.


Oh heeeeey Kellan. You like those Tim Tams Twilightish brought for you? Yea, you can kiss her, we’re cool. We’ll talk to Sharni for a while and set up a board game night. Also your foundation is just a shade too dark. And we love you.


Cue some super sad music (the entire New Moon soundtrack) because this is where we should have had an AWESOME video of Taylor where we got to ask him questions about Big Daddy and their Olive Garden Chain and what it’s like to have Big Daddy pick you up from school and how come we never see little mama and does it still hurt to listen to that Taylor Swift song and is she really a biotch cause we’re beginning to wonder. Ok, so maybe those weren’t EXACTLY the questions but whatever they are in our minds and somewhere in the ether of the video camera malfunction that ate our Taylor Lautner footage.
.

By now most of you have seen the Jumping Rob video wherein we took a lifesize version of Jumping Rob to the premiere to taunt and attract people with. If you were wondering what it looked like behind the scenes this is it…

Yes, we’re adults and yes we held this and yelled. And yes, it was awesome.


When asked if we were ready to interview Rob these are the faces we made. Somewhere between excited, snervous and ready to pounce. I think between the three of us we had Rob covered from every angle.


Guys, I meaaaaan it’s freaking Stephanie. She took a picture with Jumping Rob and pointed him out to EVERYONE. And her bag was Celine. The end.


I mean… I work here is done, right??

PS If you open this image in a new tab you can see how awesome this suit is and how while Rob was talking about needing to pee (who didn’t at that point?) I vacillated between thinking about how much Rob needs some Crest White Strips and how much I wanted to touch that freaking suit. AH!


JUST KIDDING. Our work was not done. We did this at the after party. And ate one cupcake and some mashed potatoes between us. It was a crrRRAAaaaZZzzzYYy night.

We’ve got tons more headed your way from the premiere. Hope you can handle more! If not, just go watch that video up there again.

We don’t even have to try, it’s always a good time!

Introducing the New Holy Trinity! Breaking Dawn Pt. 2 Premiere

Dear Old Holy Trinity-

Move over Taylor and Kristen, there’s a new trinity in town… aka these are the videos UC chose to edit first.

Rob, Mike Welch (ROOOBBB!!) and Melissa Rosenberg. Yup, UC must have a thing for Mike Welch and Melly Rosenberg because she totally overlooked people like Jackson Rathbone and Kellan Lutz for… MIKE.WELCH. Yea, I don’t know either y’all but considering last year’s Mike Welch moment I’m surprised he even gave us a second chance much less played along with our dumb game. Whatta sport that guy!


Mike Welch. Yea, we totally asked him to act the fool and he was more than willing. And yes, this Arizona girl is likin’ da rain.


And then Melissa Rosenberg became just like our favorite step-aunt in this video.
.


And well there’s really no need for introduction to this ROBERT PATTINSON video because there are no words necessary because as you all know, this has never happened before. Special hugs to Matt and Ryan for hooking us up. WAAAAY up.

We’re sorry Taylor and Kristen but I’m sure you understand… you never would have delivered famous Twilight movie lines in Mike Welch’s voice or introduced us to your husband or told us you had to pee. So as you can see it had to be done. You’ll understand someday, when you’re older.

Who else has moved up on our list of favorites? Who will be the new Big Daddy (we miss you!)? Who will be the next Buttcrack Santa? Only time and Goldfish Cracker-fueled midnight editing sessions will tell.

Moon and UC

Breaking Dawn Pt 2 Premiere: Stephenie Meyer, Jeremy Renner and that Jumping Rob

One last time!

Dear LTT-ers,

As you know we were back on the red carpet for Breaking Dawn Pt 2 on Monday and if you were following us at all you know A LOT went down. And we don’t just mean a certain jumping gentleman. We’ve been working all day to get the footage edited and shined up and presentable (on approx. 4 hrs of sleep) but you have a TOOOON to look forward to in the next few days –

- We didn’t yell “ROB” in Mike Welch’s face this year! Instead we made him play a game with us that involves semi-embarassing voices
- Kellan kissed our site buddy from Twilightish over a package of cookies! Imagine what he’d do for some black market German protein powder
- Taylor has ideas for a Twilight related tattoo
- Tons of randoms answered questions you totally don’t want to hear! (Spoiler: male actors in Twilight are obsessed with women)
- Everyone wants to be Jasper!
- Our “little bottles” got cock blocked on the red carpet
- Erik Odom said the word “carbon-fiber” with a straight face when describing his suit

And tons more!

But really what better place to start than with the first lady herself, Stephenie Meyer. Guys, who knew she was a super fangirl for Jeremy Renner? Seriously, all she wanted to do was talk about him. Not what we can blame her, we’ve seen The Town, The Avengers and like Stephenie, The Bourne Legacy. The dude is hot. Perhaps she needs to start Letters to Jeremy?

Uuuuhhh if you’re serious Stephenie you know our email address… send us your letter girl, we may know some people who knows some people who can pass it along to some people who might be able to get it posted on here. Just know we will all know expect at least one Jeremy Renner mention.

Bonus points to Stephenie for being the first person to notice Jumping Rob (more on that at That’s Normal) all night! We may never know what tweets of ours you were loving but it was worth it to hear you call him Jumping Edward.

Stay tuned we have heaps more to show you… and we will, just as quickly as our computers can render the footage.

Jump!
Moon and UC

PS You know what’s normal? Taking Jumping Rob to the Premiere with us! Check out the full video, Rob’s reaction and more at That’s Normal!

Guess what!!

Heeeey yaaaalll, we’re baaaaack!

Dear LTT-ers,

The Twilight Gods have smiled on us again this year as we will once again be on the red/black/khaki carpet to represent Letters to Twilight ask all the stars (read: Mike Welch and Justin Chon if he decides to stop taking instagram pics on the toilet long enough to join us) all the best questions (see us in action last year). We know some of you will be there with us screaming obscene things at Rob and some of you will be at home following the tweets. Since this is our one last hurrah we want to ask the best questions, the questions you’ve always wanted answered but never get asked. So since we’ve already asked Taylor about that hideous wig, we want to hear your ideas on what we should ask at the premiere.

We’ve come up with a few of the questions we still haven’t been able to get answers to. So let’s get the creative juices flowing. Since freakin’ Josh Horowitz at MTV beat us to asking if Stephenie Meyer is a pervert we gotta think of something better cause we CANNOT be bested by Josh Horowitz.

1. What’s the best photoshop/fan manip you’ve ever seen of yourself. (leave your faves of ANY cast member in the comments)
2. What was it like to wear those contacts???? JUST KIDDING WE ALL KNOW.
3. Does anyone really believe Rob and Kristen are back together?
4. So is it essentially off limits to talk about Mini Coopers, SWATH, British directors with wives named Liberty in KStew’s presence… or just frowned upon?
5. Who would you cast in the Twilight reboot? Yes, we’re already thinking about it.
6. What’s worse, the 405 on a Thursday or the 10 on a nice weekend?
7. How much money will you get reselling your comp. copies of 100 Monkeys/Sam Bradley/Bobby Long/Sage and the Dills?
8. To Rob: Does a Sam Bradley CD make a good coaster? Does Sam still have Google alerts set up for his name? Is Sam still an avid LTR reader and commenter?

9. How many eggrolls do you think Dick Pattinson can fit in his mouth tonight at the afterparty? 10?
10.  How quickly do we think the Jacob/Renesmee story will be written/produced for film/tv?
11. To Rob: which fanfic is your fave? The Office? MOTU? or Edward Wallbanger? Do you giggle every time you read the words “Edward Wallbanger?”
12. Which cast member is most excited that marijuana is now legal in Colorado? Who’s already started looking for real estate there?
13.  Do you think King’s of Leon’s Caleb Followill’s trip to rehab was caused by Robsten?

An awesome use of free Fed Ex supplies!

These are only a sampling of the AMAZING questions we’ll totally (not) be asking at the premiere on Monday! If you want to follow along with us this weekend and at the premiere, we along with our red carpet buddies Twilightish will be using the hashtag #RIPTwilight because after all it is the end. Forever…. or until they do a reboot.

Leave questions in the comments or tweet us using #RIPTwilight. We’ll do our darndest to make you proud again!
Moon

PS Don’t forget if you’re going to be in Los Angeles, Sunday night before the premiere we’re going to be co-hosting a get together with Google Local and would LOVE to hang out with you. Please join us if at all possible. More info here!

Glad to be a Twilight fan yet a little wistful

Hmmm this feels familiar

Dear Twilight,

I was watching the live feed of The Hunger Games premiere tonight while I worked and it made me a little sad, a little annoyed, and a lot relieved.

A little sad because it’s kinda like watching the beginning of Twilight all over again, only this time I know like half the fandom already, I’ve read all the books and I’m not mispronouncing the main dude’s name in instant messages to UC. But I still feel like I’m missing out a little when I see all our other site friends posting pictures and updates from the premiere. It also makes me feel a little wistful that this fandom is just getting ramped up as Twilight is winding down. It makes me think of how we’re in the final sprint towards the finish line.

Yup, more familiar...

A little annoyed because the whole thing looked like Twilight the redux from the set up at LA Live, Yahoo covering it live, fans in that camping area, the Kardashians in the “Bing Box” all the way down to the black carpet. I doubt LA Live even bothered to vacum those before they went in storage they just rolled ‘em back out and dusted off the dried tears and Krispy Kreme crumbs (say that 5 times fast). I mean Summit and Lionsgate are now merged and if it ain’t broke don’t fix it, but still it’s a little like, come on guys.

Killing it!

That brings us to a lot relieved. I watch this and while I’m a bit sad, a lot wistful, a little annoyed I’m mostly terribly relieved! It’s been fun to watch from the sidelines without being a stake holder. Who in the Twilight fandom will jump ship to the new fandom? Who will be the Robsten of Hunger Games? Who will leak stills from the film and launch an all out fandom war? Which fansites will not be on the red carpet and which won’t? Who will write a fan fic that becomes popular and decides to publish it? Ya know what? It doesn’t matter for us but it’s a ton of fun to watch with a bucket of popcorn via Twitter and Facebook.

And you know what, we have one more left here in this fandom and for that I’m SUPER excited. Now bring on the freaking trailer/sneak peek whatever it is we’re going to see from Breaking Dawn Pt 2 being Hunger Games next weekend.

So hooooonnngray!
Themoonisdown

Your thoughts? Are you feeling the same way or have you jumped head first into the HG fandom?
