We’re playing favorites (with Vampires) and think you should too

Dear LTT,

In continuing with our recap of our #RIPTwilight week together (and more specifically the Breaking Dawn Part 2 premiere) we wanted to share a few videos from some of our FAVORITE cast members.

We all know we love the Cullens– I mean Hello Rob yum yum forever. Jackson is WORKING it these days with 100 Monkeys and terrible outfits & hats out of his system. Even though I’m not into the big muscular type, Kellan’s personality makes up for any d-baggery and you have to love a guy who admits to reading The Purpose Driven Life. And Peter Fach is like the world’s best dad.

That’s established. But our favorite cast members as of late have been the newbies. Maybe it’s because they’re active on Twitter & we get to see their personalities. Maybe it’s because we’ve met them in person and shared a meal and some drinks (and they EAT unlike some Cullen girls who I assume do NOT) or maybe it’s just because they’re all-around good people and they deserve to be on our favorite list. Either way, here they are:

We know, you’re busy. No time to watch videos. You have time for these! Trust! 

Erik Odom

Oh Erik, we called you Z-list last year and you read it (and remember it since you mentioned it to us recently) and yet you still talk to us. We weren’t sure what was going on with your jacket at the premiere this year, but it sure was interesting to touch. And we love you because you aren’t afraid to share your deep knowledge of all things Hobby-Lobby. Plus you treat us like we’re not fans (WE AREN’T. WE’RE NORMAL PEOPLE) and your Grandma posts cute things to your Facebook wall:

Toni Trucks

Could this girl be ANY cuter? First she ends tweets with “Beep Beep” (last name is Trucks. It took me a few days to figure that one out. So smart) and then she’s the most real, down-to-earth actress I’ve ever met. Someone give this girl a sitcom. Or a role on Downton Abbey:

JD Pardo

JD is a new addition in 2012 to the “yum” list. Plus he’s on one of our fav new Fall TV shows (Revolution) and is pretty great! From what we can tell in the storyline, they’re making his role even more important, so I think he’ll be around for awhile. We have a joke with JD about visiting Wilmington, NC that comes up every time we see him (listen to the beginning of the interview & you’ll hear it) Plus we will one day do shots together. If we do shots together IN Wilmington I’m pretty sure the world will explode. Or at least the lights will go out (Revolution joke, holllaaaa):

I’ve never done red carpet interviews for any other fandoms, but I can’t imagine they are all as great as the Twilight black carpets. The actors & people involved are great to talk to– even when they get to us at the end after they’ve talk to HUNDREDS of others. I know it’s their JOB and some people are better at it than others, but we’ve had such a great experience with most cast members, especially our new favorite vamps! Oh, 1 of them is a 1/2 vamp if you want me to be technical (SPOILER ALERT)

Hope you love them as much as we do!!!

UC & Moon

Who is your favorite random Twi cast member? Don’t say Rob!

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!

Storytime with LTT: Breaking Dawn Red Carpet and our new obsessions & I gotta feeling…

They actually let us in!!

Dear LTT-ers,

As you know, Monday we attended the black carpet premiere of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 (say that 5 times fast after spending 4 hours on the carpet, not eating and an open bar at the after party). Since we were asked to represent Letters to Twilight on the Twilight fansite/press section of the carpet we came prepared with a handycam, a couple iPhones, questions and some killer heels.

So since we fancy now, I’ll just let us, via video, take it away with the introduction…

Please forgive us for the WORST camera angle of ALL time. ALL.TIME.

After a microphone snafu which made me beg like 10 friends for microphones we picked up our GOLD mic (which would later turn into a talking point during our interviews) and busted arse to Nokia Live because we thought we were late to check in but as with all events, they were running way behind. So while we stood in the press check in line between some old grizzled Australian cameraman talking to some newswoman with a football helmet for hair about their days at the ’96 Olympics I gave myself a little sidewalk mani


.

After some mob rule style check in we found this little beauty greeting us…

We knew we had arrived.
.


We then met up with Val from Twilight Poison who we would be teamed up with that night along with Lindsay from Team Twilight and Tracy from Twilightish.
.


After we sat up the too short tripod, plugged in the spray painted gold microphone I borrowed from a friend and the handycam I stole from my Dad who bought it to capture my new niece (nothing but the best yall!) we decided to run around like we knew what we were doing getting b-roll and trying not to photo/video bomb EVERYONE’s intro videos… minus that blond kid who looked like he was from the Disney Channel. I definitely ran into him while he was asking some fans about being Team Edward or Team Jacob. Team give me a break people!! COME ON!

After we were all set up UC was whisked away to a different section and I picked up that klassy gold mic cause it was time to DO THIS! Let me just give a shout out to Lindsay from Team Twilight because we rocked the questions together for a lot of our interviews. Between us working the questions and record buttons and juggling mics and press alerts and Vale and Tracy on still cameras we were working ALL the angles. That is definitely what she said.

So of course we got about 8 gabillion little interviews with every vampire in the free world from A to Z  list cast and we’ll definitely bring you those soon because there’s some CLASSIC moments in those along with some wah wah waaaaah moments. In the spirit of keeping this post from taking us 10 hours to write we’ll bring you the best of the best in this post…

Speaking of the best… THIS GUY!!! Wyck is officially my new obsession… well besides our two other new obsessions whom we shall reveal later but srsly… WYCK GODFREY you guys. Letters to Wyck… Oh wait that exists. Enjoy his little dance.

Speaking of seeing Renesmee here’s little Mackenzie Foy making her first Twilight appearance! How flipping cute is this kid?

And really, the first family mother and daughter in blue?! Stop is guuuuiiize! Next you’re gonna tell me you scheduled a Christmas card photo shoot on the beach in matching white tshirts and blue jeans.
.

Dude, Bella and Edward don’t need Prof. Kinsey in BD Part 2?! Hold on to your butts ladies cause Fade to Sad could get Fade to HOT DAMN in part 2 if Bill’s not pulling a Rob on us and totally making shiz up. #TeamBill
.

And the winner of Best Dressed at the Breaking Dawn Pt 1 Premiere award goes to…
TWO WAY TIE between Jacky’s creepy crushed velvet children’s birthday party magician look and Dean’s girlfriend (she likes man jewelry) with the stomach cut out jump suit. All that’s missing from this look is a velvet turban… and regret.
.

That’s right we asked a good question Melissa!

Then this happened…

Yes, he was this close to me… This will get it’s own letter at LTR and it’s own video because moments of immense hope and moments of great lose deserve to be immortalized forever on a blog. Duh.

We didn’t have too long to cry because things on the red carpet move like Bella driving a motorcycle (Twilight jokes!): at break neck speed, throwing caution to the win, with the hopes of hearing Rob, I mean Edward’s voice and sometimes ending in a big crash and burn. Oh it happened.

But with tragedy comes greatness… enter Stephenie Meyer…

.

Then THIS happened…

Yes, that is for all you LTT readers and commenters. The.Best.

After this came Taylor and Kristen and Rob again but because of time constraints and the film starting we could only get within inches of them, gold mic poised and question hanging in mid air before they were whisked away by handlers. “BOO you whores.” But really after that kind of shout out from Stephenie who needs the trinity……… this time.

There is SOOOOOO much more to come we can’t possibly cover it all in one post so stick with us… same LTT time, same LTT channel…

Moon and UC

PS you guys… the MOVIE… the movie…the.movie. we’ll talk soon.
PPS I’m going to act like my weird valley girl-esque accent can not be heard in all these videos. Please also do the same

So were you watching the live feeds at home? Were you there at the premiere? Are you in serious love with Wyck?

We couldn’t have done it without our partners in crime on the carpet: Twilight Poison, Team Twilight and Twilightish. Go visit them, follow them on Twitter and like them on Facebook to see their take on the premiere!

Oh hey guess what

You see us Rob, we know we look good

Dear LTT-ers,

Remember that time when UC and I were on the Red Carpet and we got to ask questions to cast members and the Twi randoms we love and got to take pictures that weren’t 89 miles away from the subject? Oh wait you don’t? Cause it hasn’t happen yet… BUUUUUUTTTTT (that’s a big ol butt)…

It will on Monday!!!!!!! You heard that right, yours truly Moon and UC will be hitting the red/black/wedding colors colored carpet on Monday to officially cover the event!! Yes, we will finally be within 5 feet of Big Daddy without a retraining order or a living room window between us. Dreams do come true yall.

Laugh it up Nikki, but we're here!

As you can imagine we’ve been furiously coming up with questions we could possibly ask on Monday. So of course since we’re not like E! News or something we’ll most likely be standing between the Latvia Daily News and the cleaning crew waiting to strike the carpet once the event is over. Clearly, we will have precious little time with the Holy Trinity and C list cast members.

But we need your help! What should we ask ANY possible cast members/crew member/soundtrack musician/wardrobe stylist/stunt double that we happen to talk to? Here’s our totally fake list of questions:

1. Rob – How awkward was it explaining “just the tip” to your parents after the Jimmy Kimmel Show?

2. Jamie Campbell Bower – What did you REALLY do with the nipple clamps and cheese wheels? Follow up question: Have you ever gotten a sketchier gift from a fan than nipple clamps and cheese wheels? Double follow up: Are you wearing them now?

No, I will not show you my Armani underwears

3. Wig person (how will we know them?!) – How do you sleep at night? Is it an Ambien and Vodka cocktail or are you up all night thinking of a way to make your next victim look crazy?

4. Stephenie – Do you now call Pancho, Nacho? Come on, you can tell us.

5. Anyone – If you had to get one Twilight related tattoo, what would you get?

As you can tell we really need your help and really we just want to ask them stuff you’re interested to hear. We’ve heard all the tried and true and tired questions, we want to have a good time so hit us with your best in the comments.

We all know we’ll try to talk to the Trinity and the obvious people but who from the Randoms do you want us to try and talk to?

ZOMG!!!
Moon & UC

Stuff happening this weekend

In tent city a plethora of activities are happening down at Nokia Live ranging from cast visits, give aways to a live podcast we’ll be participating in with other Twi “experts” (HA!) hosted at the Yahoo TwiFi lounge and Twilight Series Theories. Also on Sunday we’re throwing a little get together for our LTT readers and friends… if you’ll be in LA for the big day email us if you want to come to the party.

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