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!

Storytime with Moon & UC #RIPTwilight Part 1:

Dear LTTers,

That’s right- this is Part 1 of 2 of our EPIC story from our amazing #RIPTwilight week together. We wish more than anything we could have taken you with us, shrunk you down a little bit and carried you in our pockets on every adventure we had together. You’d be pocket-sized LTTers. We’d even let each of you have a moment alone with Pocket Edward in our purses if that’s your thing. Some of you could even choose Pocket Bella and we wouldn’t even bat an eye. But alas most of you weren’t there with us and so we’ll do our best to share every detail we can so it feels like you were!

Tent City

I (UC) flew into LA on Friday evening. After big hugs with some of the OG LTTers we had dinner & headed on over to Tent City to catch up on what was going down there.

Turns out not much. They were watching New Moon on the Big Screen at LA Live & as if God was welcoming us there the scene that was playing as we walked through security was the one when Kristen says “They’re NOT Bears!”

I found a sign that was begging to be leg-hitched
Leg Hitch Edward Cullen

This sign was amazing:

how the fuck can i keep calm?

And this:

And all the ROBSTEN signs:

It was basically a 2nd-hand embarrassment dream come true.

Then a HERD of Twilight fans went running because they heard a rumor that a Twi-cast member MAYBE was there. There was no cast member, and if herds like that happened often during the weekend I’m SHOCKED no one was killed. Angry/cold/Annoyed Twilight fans should be AVOIDED AT ALL COSTS. (of course none of the amazing “camping” LTTers were ever angry/cold/annoyed*)

The concert

On Saturday we headed back to tent city for the concert for the campers. A few people from the soundtrack performed like: A boy and his kite (Great song!), Anya Marina (YEP. HER), Paul McDonald and Rosalie Hale (I mean Nikki Reed) and Christina Perri.

Jackson MC’d and if you remember us complaining about how TERRIBLE Charlie Bewley did last year, you’ll know this a good thing. There is a DEF a career for Jackson hosting a show like “America’s Funniest Home Videos” if this acting thing doesn’t work out. He did a great job.

Jackson Rathbone Tent City 2012

Eventually Ashley Greene joined him and they were all cute Alice-and-Jaspery together:

Ashley Greene Tent City 2012

Christina was my favorite because she is a major Twi-hard. She was wearing this pretty red jacket while singing her first song (or two)

Christina Perri and then right before she sang the song that brings us ALL to tears (especially if you’ve seen BD part 2 already!) “A Thousand Years” she took off her jacket and revealed a Twilight T-shirt like the huge Twi-dork she is:

Christina Perri Twilight Tshirt

ALSO she apparently has A Twilight tattoo that says “bitten” on her wrist. Way to keep it classy Christina!

Apparently this was Nikki Reed’s first time performing in public, something she said over and over again. Then she cried. AND had to sit while singing and everyone was soooo sympathetic. She sang. She did fine. Then she sang with her husband and at the end they shared a mic and we threw up in our mouths a little bit.

Sidenote: I think Nikki Reed is genuinely grateful for her Twilight experience & how her life has changed as a result. But she says it so often and with SO MUCH EMOTION that it seems fake. Also we liked her jacket. End Sidenote.

During the concert we saw the most EPIC Buttcrack of all time. I have picture proof and everything but…. for reasons I cannot discuss I cannot post it. But it’s like Buttcrack Santa sent us a gift in his absence. Imagine a chilly California day. You’re in California so you expect it to be warm so you’re not dressed appropriately. Then imagine your buttcrack showing SO much and somehow you DON’T notice despite the cold day and the inappropriate-for-the-weather clothing. Seems impossible, right? WRONG. It was possible. I saw it with my own two eyes. Buttcrack Santa gifted us this.

Then the BIG SURPRISE was revealed when Stephenie Meyer came on stage to talk to the fans (as much as a “BIG SURPRISE” can be when you notice a huge-ass card on the side of the stage that says “DEAR STEPHENIE” in big letters inside…. I don’t know who else noticed, but I kinda figured that was coming!) She said some sweet stuff and then ran the hardest Twilight trivia of all time- which people actually PASSED. And those who got correct answers got to dine with her that evening. Pretty fun idea & I am either the worst or best Twilight fan for not knowing the answers. I’m not sure. (but I think best…)

“What was I wearing to bed the night I dreamed of Edward Cullen?”

Much much more after the jump! Continue…

Storytime: The best of the rest

*REMINDER: You can mute the sound from the ads on the sidebar AND at the bottom of the page. They will stay muted forever. YAY! Now read in blessed silence*

Dear Twilight,

Oh you thought we were done with our stories, did you? (Recap #1 and Recap #2 in case you missed them!) Well, we’re not… So get excited for a lot of random info you never knew you wanted to know:

Before the craziness started, we snapped a shot with our lovely friend & new LA transplant @katespencer who does red carpet stuff for VH1.

Speaking of Vh1, we were featured as “Super Fans” on Friday (duh- we’re the biggest superfans out there proved by our Twilight-themed guest bathrooms & “I’ll take Edward and Jacob” matching underwear) and got a ton of Krisbian-hate!! Did you guys know we owned “I Hate KStew” t-shirts? Yeah, we didn’t know that either. UC & Moon: Biggest Super Fans around

Before anyone important hit the carpet, we got a group shot with the other fan sites on the carpet. Girl power represent! (Oh yeah, Kaleb Nation aka The Twilight Guy was there and Andrew from Twisource too but I think we scared them off before this picture)

Stuff you missed from the red carpet

We got to interview a LOT of people- some you’ll care about and some (sad) you probably won’t. We know because we forgot some of their names.. Shhhhhh. But we posted a bunch on our You Tube page, which, up until now, has held a brilliant video of Edward & Edward having a romantic moment in Griffith Park, soundtrack by UC, and that one time we embarrassed ourselves SO much for you all. Actually that’s all our videos have ever been. So we’re pretty glad to finally have something decent to share. If you have time to kill, we even made a playlist with all the videos: LTT Goes to the Breaking Dawn Part 1 Premiere. Don’t miss the interview with that “one vampire in the next movie we couldn’t understand.” At least we think he said he plays a vampire.

But you really shouldn’t miss Moon’s interview with Eric Odom. Especially because he gives her “the eyes.” You know the “I”m a c-list actor and so you really should want me now and why don’t we skip this whole movie thing and jump the after party(in my pants) ifyouknowwhatimsaying” eyes:

The eyes didn’t work, sorry, Eric. But you should really get that tattoo cause chicks dig Twilight related tatts (they don’t).

And if you’re looking for a BRILLIANT piece of cinematography, look no further than our interview with Nikki Reed, when the camera wasn’t pointing at her until the last second:

(Let’s give a slow clap to Moon for doing a great job at pretending she had listened to Nikki’s song!)

Much more AFTER the jump!

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!

Storytime with Moon: We Got Abducted With Taylor Lautner

Come watch me get Abducted!

Dear Taylor,

I’m gonna tell you and all my LTT and BreakingDawnMovie.org friends about that time I went to the Abduction premiere and saw you and your new movie. But first can I just say every time I hear the title “Abduction” is makes me think of the abductor equipment at the gym which looks like a medieval torture devices for your downstairs area and that makes me wonder if you think about that since you’re so well acquainted with the gym and then I start thinking about downstairs areas and then… well, never mind let’s just get on with the story…

The lovely Lionsgate let me go to the Abduction premiere to represent for some of your favorite fans sites namely BreakingDawnMovie.org and duh, LTT. So, this a spring in my step and an iphone in hand I ran off to Hollywood and Highland with the hopes of seeing TayTay and his new movie… and not so secretly Big Daddy aka Daniel Lautner our personal LTT hero and favorite.

(as always click all pics to enlarge)

So there were a couple snafu’s with the will call line and like every fan site they invited there kinda got forgotten about BUT the Lionsgate team tried to wrangle us a decent spot to bring you action. Please forgive some heads and whatnot in the shots as we were behind some folks…

Namely Candle Crown Birthday Girl. So I’m sure it really made this girls birthday to be at the Abduction premiere and see Taylor and whatever but even though I’m pretty tall, was wearing heels, on a step and practically hanging off a stop sign/scaffolding her DUMB candle crown hat got in pretty much EVERY PHOTO. So thanks, Candle crown hat birthday girl for having a birthday and forcing us all to celebrate with you. Forever. Via these images.


We settled in to wait for Taylor because I mean who else in the movie were we really there to support? This isn’t Letters to Alfred Molina or Breaking Dawn and Lilly Collins Movie.org BUT we were pleasantly surprised… cause who would just happen to step onto the black carpet but Seth Clearwater himself, aka BooBoo Stewart and of course the sister Fievel. Like the mouse who goes west. Cute lil BooBoo even came over to sign some stuff for the fans…


I won’t even tell you what things I had to yell to get him to do what happened next… those are things for Chris Hanson to question me about later…

So clearly I haven’t gotten the hang of this whole video thing because I don’t even have the blasted thing rolling to catch what he said at the beginning. But I’m pretty sure he all loves us and sends all of Robs love to us and promises we can all marry Rob and have his babies… or maybe he just says hi, but whatever same diff.

Then a ton of Disney Channel stars walked by whom I guess are like a thing judging by the way the kids around me reacted. So if that sorta deal is your thing than I’m told it’s some kids from Awkward and Smash Hits? I’m sure I just showed how old I am by totally calling them the wrong titles. OH WELLS moving on…


Oh heeeeey Sigourney Weaver whom I only got this shot of because Crown Candle Hat Birthday Girl was too busy freaking out over a Disney star…

The following photo and video should really be accompanied by this music, no seriously. Ok, maybe not but still.


So who do I see coming down the carpet but Mr. Chris Weitz himself! Of course I like yell out CHRIS! CHRIS! And everyone around me had NO idea. Thank God Alison from Twifans.com was by me and totally got it! She yelled that they loved A Better Life  and that made him very happy, and because I am that person I yelled that I was from East LA and that reeled him in you guys! Echo Park FTW!  So I asked him to say hi to you guys here at LTT and thiiiiis happened…

(crank up the volume)

Since of course I am specially able-d with the camera I missed like the beginning but he says something to you all and then… “thank you, thank you very much for being kind to me, and not making fun of me too much… bye bye” The wave, lolzforever yall. Also, please ignore my valley girl sounding voice. Yikes!

HAHAHAHA YOU GUISE, it’s like he knows us or something. Us, make fun of someone?! NEVER! Ok, always. Like, every day.

You can stop the Dreamweaver music now because the best part of this whole thing is over and because your coworkers probably think you’re even weirder today. Ok, I kid but what happened next was probably one of the weirder/awesome moments I’ve had at a Twi-related event because who should walk like 2 feet behind us and avoid the carpet all together but Justin Bieber. The HALE? We just thought the screams were for Taylor arriving or something but no, Taylor was not there it was the Biebs and all the Bieblievers lost.their.shit. yall! It was pretty awesome. Witness the blurry side of his head:

Then who would just happen to slink in a few feet behind him??? Yup, Selena Gomez. No need to hide if from us kids, we ALL know. Though it did make me long for these days… I was also secretly hoping that Taylor Swift would make an appearance and Swiftner would be reunited but it wasn’t meant to be folks…. maybe some day…

FINALLY Taylor Lautner shows up… and the girls rejoiced…

Let me just tell you this boy was there to WERK and work he did… all up and down the fans (except right in front of us HRMPH), the press, the fans ACROSS the street and back around for the press again all while people chanted his name. It was pretty cute to see him at his OWN movie premiere without any of the Twilight stuff involved… I mean like besides us… and everyone else, but you know what I’m saying…


Why yes, I still eat meat patties and sweet potatoes every day. In fact I have a baggie full with me now, in my suit pocket.

During this time three things happened…

Wilmer Valderramer showed up. I KNOW. Maybe he’s a huge Taylor fan, or loves free popcorn and movies, or maybe he just needed to talk to the girl from Reelz Channel but for whatever reason whilst Taylor was doing his thing with the cameras Wilmer decided to walk the carpet.

Then who would walk behind us but BILL CONDON! I mean all we were missing were David Slade and Cathi Hardi and the whole family would have been there.

The other thing that happened during this time was that I spotted Big Daddy aka Daniel Lautner on the way far other end of the carpet. You can cue up that Dreamweaver song again now… he was like a vision… in a white shirt from Men’s Big N Tall, black pants, hair buzzed and looking ready to eat some free popcorn and see the movie he produced. But sadly, this is where the tale ends because Big Daddy walked right to the theater and out of our lives. Ok, stop the music again. SADNESS my friends. SADNESS.


Good thing this guy was still around for us to look at… and let me just say ladies (and gheys) he’s all growns up and looking goooood. Blue suit, tailored just right, the hairs appeared to be kinda combed to the side. All I’m saying is I’m glad I don’t need to be running to Georgia after every Taylor post I do anymore. Whatta guy.

So things were winding down and we decided to head inside so we could get our seats and see what all the fuss was about. After director John Singleton introduced the movie and waxed poetic about Taylor (and Big Daddy) they started the film.

I don’t want to give away any spoilers but it is a very fun movie that we had a REALLY great time watching. Sure there were some lines here and there that had us laughing for other reasons but at this point I feel like they’re just putting those in there for us. If you don’t have plans this weekend or want to pull a double feature with Drive, you could definitely take your boyfriend, or your hubs or your gay and go see Abduction because there is a ton of action and butt kicking and bombs (in ovens). But really just take your girlfriends because who wants to have to explain why Taylor doesn’t have his shirt on or why their make out scene is hotter than anything we’ve seen in Twilight. I kid you not. ENJOY!

I leave you with this…

I was abducted?!

The End!
Themoonisdown

Special Thanks To: Lionsgate, Will and BreakingDawnMovie.org for letting us rep them and “abduct” their Twitter feed for the night and the cast and black carpet attendees for stopping by to say hello!

Ok, so talk amongst yourselves… Abduction, you going to see it? Do we love growns up Taylor? Do we love Chris Weitz even more?
