My first time with Twilight and a contest for Virgins!

Dear LTT-ers,

A few days ago UC sent me an email with link to her review of Twilight on her personal blog from late 2008 with the comment “let’s never speak of this again.” Well friends, after going back and rereading both her review and mine from November 2008 I just knew we HAD to speak of this again. In fact we’ve concocted a little thing called Virgin Week to reminisce about the absurdity of our first Twilight times. It’s fun and slightly embarassing to read how wide eyed and innocent we were before we became Twilight sluts who had been around the block more times than we care to let on now. Since it’s always fun to take a trip down memory lane, let’s pretend this is the blogging equivalent of pulling out your old high school yearbooks with your friends and laughing really hard at your hairdid and admitting you really were a member of the marching band (guilty).

So let’s start this week of virgins with the post I made a few days before seeing Twilight for the first time… (and if you make it to the end… a contest!)

Title: One Week Ago…

Alright so exactly one week ago i asked my pal katelin, what’s all the fuss about this ‘twilight’ thing? Being the kind soul she is, she brings in her copy of twilight for me to borrow. that night i sat down and plowed through 200 pages. and so as they say the rest is history… i’m in the middle of ‘new moon’ and loving it. yes, i like twilight. and the authors from arizona! come on!

it’s also happens that today the movie version of twilight is in theaters. no, im not one of those crazed ‘bite me’ girls who has midnight showing tickets… i mean after all this has only been a week! i was planning on seeing it when i went home over thanksgiving next week but now im not so sure… i may cave this weekend.

and with pics like this you can understand my dilemma…

yes, rob pattinson. SIGH. british AND has great hair. was there ever a better combination? i think not.

Comment:

Katelin: just think how different your life would have been if i had never given you that book, haha.

Yes… think just how different my life would be now if I’d never read that book courtesy of Katelin… CRAZY!

And now let’s ready my first ever review after seeing Twilight for the first time…………

November 24, 2008
Title: I Caved…
i saw twilight this weekend. you’d think we were at a beatles concert circa the 60s the way these girls screamed. no joke anytime an important character came on the screen, or heck, when the TITLE of the movie came on, these people squealed like banshees.

at this point i’m mixed on my review of it. on one hand i was so excited to see it in movie form and on the other i feel like there was a lot they could have done and left out. ive talked with a few others who were book fans who saw it and it was kinda the same reaction… a bit of a mixed bag. at times i felt it was rushed and lacked some important character development but it was over 2 hours i dont know how else they could have changed it. the good thing is i heard from guys and people who didnt read the books, that it was better than expected and enjoyable.

Original Caption: "Uh oh"

also summit (the studio) has already green lighted ‘new moon’ the equally awesome sequel to ‘twlight.’ hopefully theyll dump a bit more money into the cgi/fx this time cause it left A LOT to be desired, i.e. edward did NOT dazzle/sparkle/or look anything remotely close to diamonds in the sunlight.

after katelin and i mulled it over this morning i think i will see it again. there was just too much hype leading up to it for this to be my actual judgment and i need to see it without a 15yr old girl screaming in my ear everytime edward or jacob happens to be on screen.

the good notes… LOVED all the actors. Thought they were cast brilliantly and I loved the soundtrack, worked the music in so well. listening to some of the songs now and i still feel anxious as if i was watching the scene it corresponds to.

i’ll revisit this next week after i see it again… :D

book update… i’m halfway through ‘eclipse’… loving it, there are SO many ways this one can go but she always surprises me. we’ll see.

great song choice for the movie…

Comments (in which UC says “kick ass”)

UC: girl, i didn’t read your review before i posted mine. we think so much alike.

go see it again. you’ll love it. promise. thanks for all the kick-ass vids.

i haven’t stopped listening to the soundtrack. we should’ve been teenagers together, sigh. you are basically bella, though.. being from AZ and all..

can’t wait until you’re in music supervision either. all movies will suddenly have the best soundtracks
xo

Moon: wait, we aren’t 16?? come on.

i totally get a little kick out of bella being from phx and the author still living there. i’m kinda pumped about going home for tgiving on the one -in-a-million chance i see stephenie meyer! hahaha.

So friends as you can see being a virgin is hilarious and 2nd hand embarrassing all these years later. Which is exactly why I thought we should share these (UC will post hers on Wednesday). But the best part about all this? We want to have a contest!!! Because we shared our first times with you, we want to hear YOURS!! Did you blog your first Twilight experience? Did you send your friend an email about it? Did you sigh over Rob being a Brit with great hair? We want to see it! Comment a link or send an email of your first time and we’ll chose our favorite one and give you a tshirt from the LTT/LTR store! Win win for everyone!

Get to outting yourself!
Themoonisdown

Do we love the random quotes around the titles, my wish to meet Stephenie Meyer on a random trip home to AZ? Hilar. It’s really a tragedy that UC and I have forever lost our very first Twilight convo… so spill yours!

Contest Rules: Comment/email us a link or copy of your first time. A chat convo with a friend, a review on a blog, a funny comment at a Twi site. UC and I will pick our faves and someone will win a tshirt from the LTT/LTR store to be announced this weekend.

Kristen’s Theme Song: The Climb

Dear LTT-ers,

It’s (one of) your favorite bloggers here, Moon, stepping in for UC this Friday. She won’t be with us today because LIFE HAPPENS. And when life happens we just go with the flow because life is always more important than counting the hairs on Robs head or speculating about Solomon Trimble’s part time job (Waxer and Facialist). Where ever you are today send some love and prayers and good vibes to UC and her friend.

With that in mind let’s listen to Kristen talk about her theme song: The Climb by Miley Cyrus…

http://www.mtv.com/videos/movies/527436/kristen-stewarts-musical-tastes.jhtml#id=1641432

YUP, THE CLIMB. By the Miley Cyrus of Billy Ray Cyrus lineage. God, I would not pay money to hear her karaoke this but man would I enjoy seeing it happen!

Let’s sing it together…

Well it’s Friday so get out there and have some fun and be thinking of our lil UC and her Friend and it’ll all be preeeeetttttyyy cooool!

TGIF
Themoonisdown

As cheesy as Miley and this song is the lyrics ring true, it’s not ever going to be easy but it’s about the journey or the cllliiiiiiimb if you will. Had one of these experiences lately? What your theme song?

ZZZZzzzzz the Oscars and Twilight… LIES!

Dear Oscars,

Welp, thanks for giving me exactly ZERO material besides a 5 second moment in a clip that was autotuned! Way to be a uuuuge let down. Where was the rumored Breaking Dawn footage, though admittedly, that would have been awkward. And no trinity? Could you not have thrown them in the audience or CGI-ed (technical term) them clapping for some winner? No? No one? FINE… let’s watch it again

video here

If someone has the ringtone of this please email it or post it cause like EVERYONE is asking.

Remember that time Rob was at the Oscars?

Yea, that was a good night. Remember when my phone died because of the overload of comments on LTR? Yea… that was a good night.

Remember when Kristen and Taylor were at the Oscars?

Yea that was an ok night… Remember how Kristen had a flub and people freaked out and I forgot Taylor was there? Yea.

So Oscars… you’ve have Rob, Taylor and Kristen representing Twilight at the telecast over the last 2 years, don’t you think it’s time for someone else to rep for the saga? Like maybe Solomon Trimble? He could do a fancy french braid for the special night… or maybe Mr. Molina could come and quiz the attendees on Oscar history? Who will win the golden onion at the Oscars?

Well that was a snoozefest I gotta say… Franco was robbed but oh wells. There’s always next year when the trinity will no doubt be nommed for their performances in Breaking Dawn. Award for best forbidden love affair? Taylor Lautner and whoever plays Renesmee: AUTOMATIC WIN!

Hide yo kids, hide yo wife, the Oscars discovered Autotune,
Themoonisdown

Did anyone else sit through this? Who won their Oscar pool? I came in second (2nd place 3 way tie. HA!) White Yorkie won. HE WOULD.

News Dump: A whole lotta Kristen Stewart with a LITTLE TomStu on the side

Needs more Garrett Hedlund

Dear LTT-ers,

There’s lots of little bits of Twilight and SORTA-we-wish-we-were-and-kinda-are related bits of news out there floating around. Since there’s nothing HUGE happening, like pictures of Renesmee and Jake’s first date or Edward giving Jacob the birds and the bees talks… oh those didn’t happen? Well in any case here’s a round up of what’s going on out there in the world of Twilight…

  • The Twitters are…uh… atwitter with talk of the stills released from Kristen’s upcoming movie On The Road. UC and I spent hours (read: minutes) discussing but we’ll let you *ahem* come *ahem* to your own conclusions about it CLICK IT! (Source)
    .
  • Indie actress Kristen Stewart in negotiations to play Snow White in Snow White and the Hunstman from art house studio Universal and supposedly turned down playing little known comic book icon Lois Lane in the Superman reboot being produced by another small studio called Warner Brother.

.

(sorry couldnt resize this one POPSUGAR)
Tom says something about Kristen in On the Road here. The real issue is that fact that TomStu looks teeeeeny tiny next to RACHEL BILSON. If Summer Roberts can make TomStu look small than homeboy needs like 5 more Hot Pockets.
.


Was it awkward when someone from Ouch Magazine (wtf?) chased Chaske backstage after his performance at Chippendales and demanded he tell them what kind of women he was into while they filmed it with their cell phone camera?

Tons of Kristen for our Kristen fans and actual SET PICTURES!! See Summit, it’s not that hard, take a cue from On the Road!! I actually think at this point we have a better chance of Stephenie leaking some pictures she took with a disposable point-and-shoot camera from the corner 7/11 taken on her set visits than we do of seeing official ones. *sigh*

Another day, another random news item!
Themoonisdown
.

Excited about On the Road but probably MORE excited for the insane twitter speculation about how jealous Rob is of those set pics and how Garrett Hedlund’s arm is around her. CONSPIRACY! And really WHAT is that outfit Chaske is wearing and WHY is there NO explanation about it? And do we all think I could fit TomStu in my handbag and carry him around like a lil chihuahua?

MSN.com’s Obsessed: Harry Potter vs Twilight featuring yours truly!

Dear LTT-ers, and Twilight fans alike,

Last month I was asked to be interviewed as a Twilight “Expert” (ha!) in a web series called Obsessed by comedian Kevin Avery. The series was going to compare the Twilight and Harry Potter fandoms.  I’m sure you can guess that I thought it was going to be a Colbert Report type thing where Twilighters were made fun of they went for the easy jokes instead of really getting to know a bit more about the Twilight fandom. BUUUTTT that was not the case at all, Kevin was awesome and totally got the fun, the crazy and the deep stuff about Twilight. I had a blast letting him in on the inner workings of the Twidom and sharing a little bit of why we love Twilight so much even when it doesn’t make sense! The video also features our good pal AshleyFrag rocking it for all the fans out there against some crazy Harry Potter competition and the gals from the Twilight book club in LA! We both had a ton of fun I don’t know how they edited it all down to only 3 minutes! Let’s start a petition for an outtakes reel!

Enjoy!

Now embedded! They heard our cries! Or  watch HERE

Big thanks to Kevin Avery and Keri and also Will from NMM, EM, BDM. We love you!
XO,
Themoonisdown

Visit Kevin Avery and give him some love on Twitter
