Stuff we like other than Twilight


Multi-task: Drive, Eat Cupcake, Take picture

Dear LTTers,

It’s the weekend, so you know what that means- we go have actual lives. We post short, sweet, simple posts & say “see ya Monday!” Cuz we like stuff other than Twilight. I know it’s hard to believe. But seriously. We do.

Now in the past 9 months we may not have had much time for stuff other than Twilight, but that doesn’t mean we don’t like it.

For example, I like:

  • Cupcakes
  • Kittens & grown-up cats
  • Harry Potter
  • Rob Pattinson
  • Going out to eat

Since this is Friday while I’m writing this, tonight, after work, (are you shocked that I blog at work?) I’m going home to pet my 2 cats, eat the rest of the Oreo cupcake my husband brought me home yesterday (aww!), go out to eat with a few friends and then see the late showing of Harry Potter at the Imax theatre. See? I’m well-rounded.

I asked Moon for a few things she likes besides Twilight. She said:

  • Music
  • Hello Kitty
  • Traveling

I’m pretty sure her weekend plans involve her grabbing her Hello Kitty pillow, hopping on a plane & heading up to some show in Vancouver. Why Vancouver? Well, it’s been like 13 days since she last saw Rob, and I think she’s dying.

But what I really wanted to show you was something I love other than Twilight, but is still Twilight related cause… well, we do run a Twilight Blog.

We both loved the movie “500 Days of Summer.” Hopefully you’ve seen it cause it rules. But in case you haven’t, here is the Trailer…. well, kinda…..

Go see 500 Days of Summer immediately if you haven’t yet. I wanna be Zooey Deschanel when I grow up.


See the REAL 500 Day of Summer trailer after the jump!

Seriously. Go see now.

Then discuss your love for it on The Forum
And see what Moon has lovely for Rob on LTR

    I loooove Zooey! I want to be her when I grow up, too! She’s just so.. .cool! Heck, I could even live with being Emily Deshenel!

  • GayAnn

    I would love to see 500 Days of Summer but it never came to our theatre, maybe just too small town midwest, so I will have to wait for dvd.

    I’ve watched the trailer several times and the Twilight take on it really put a smile on my face πŸ™‚

  • southernbelle

    I love Zoey too! Maybe I can get this movie on Netflix.

    That’s so funny though!

    Haha, that’s so true, we all have our own lives therefore it’s always slower here on weekends! That’s good though, we are all still very much grounded!

  • summergirl

    2 September for the UK.

    Cannot wait!

    I love The Smiths too πŸ™‚

  • summergirl

    Does anyone have ANY iodea why the big discrepancy over opening dates?

    Like, Japan gets this in Jan 2010?


    But it has been “ready” since January 2009?

    Weird, huh?


    • allryans

      That’s the way it works with indies most of the time. Even highly anticipated ones.

      • JellybeanRainbow

        Yes, I think they make less copies and they travel around the world.

  • allryans

    Zooey is my favorite. *sigh*

  • Pinky

    Loved ‘500 Days of Summer’. I’m recommeding it to everyone I know…but in my World that recommendation is going over as well as my Twilight recommmendation. I may very well be the only person in my circle of friends who actually knows who ‘The Smiths’ are.

    • Mrs Finneyfrock

      I’m obsessed with The Smiths…but again I’m alone in my obsession, my husband calls it “music to kill yourself too” hah.

  • THparkle

    Loved the Twilight/500DOS trailer hilarious! And @ 1:11 Edward’s expression is all too appropriate, HA!

    P.S. I wanna see 500 DOS too! I heart Zooey

  • superhumanmoron

    That was awesome. 500 Days of Summer was a great movie! I want Summer’s wardrobe!

  • UC, we love all the same non-Twilight things! It’s really funny because I don’t really like cake, but I LOVE cupcakes! Anyway.

    500 days of summer does look good, I’m going to try and see it this weekend. I am loving that twilight version of the trailer, though!

  • K

    I love Zooey Deschanel. SO much. And I love She & Him; they’re one of my favorites. Zooey is pretty much the only celeb who I fully support simultaneously doing acting and music. Love that child, and can’t wait for the movie to come out!

  • xylem44

    I finally figured out why it is that I still watch Twilight despite Hardwicke’s epic fail in bringing forth SM’s book. The casting and the cinematography is really, really good. I truly could watch the movie with totally different words (that wont piss me off about how unlike the book it is) and still enjoy it. Of course having his holy hawtness in almost every scene doesn’t hurt either. I just love Rob.

    Ok… so I have to see this movie now. If for no other reason than to see the scenes before and after “they called me anal girl” ok, I am sick now.

  • Ohh that trailer is hilarious! Especially the waitress!

  • xylem44

    uhm, did anyone see the trailer for “Gentlemen Broncos” in the same widget as “500 Days of Summer?” Michael Arrengano’s character is so very sad. Juxtapose that with watching your ex-girl making out with the hottest vampire ever on screen and his holy hawtness at a concert… you gotta think… life sucks for him. (no pun intended)

  • Mrs H x

    I just watched the 500 days of Summer trailer – it looks great, not out here yet.

    BTW I think the girl eating the cupcake (UC?) looks like Summer in the movie.

  • JellybeanRainbow

    Hello, Moonie!
    We could be BFF, traveling the world, following the best music acts, sharing Hello Kitty stuff (AND a boyfriend) !

    PS I love cupcakes, little furry animals (rabbits, cats, hamsters…) and movies too.

    Has anyone seen the latest Ashton indie movie, Spread?

  • Kelly

    Ugh!!! Weekend Real life! At this moment I am sitting in the cafeteria of a Hospital in Boston with my son, who is mixing up chocolate pudding parfette until it is just a mixed up mess of chocolate. We are here visiting my mom who is suffering from liver disease. We are talking to doctors about transplants now.

    My point in tell you all this….Just to let you know that I’m very aware of my real life everyday. But everyday I I get to take a break from my reality and I get to escape reality for just a bit and I get to laugh.

    This blog and it’s sister LTR as well as a couple of others are my sanity, even though they contain insanity.

    So as I go about my “Real” life this weekend I am thankful for my un-real life that I get to share here with all of you.

    Thanks for all you do, please keep doing it!


    • southernbelle

      Oh hugs to you Kelly. Hang in there!

      I love LTR and LTT. I used to hang out in other Twilight blogs but they were way too serious for me (the posters). I need to laugh more so here I am!

    • hermes

      @ Kelly.
      Laughter is the best medicine.
      Keep the faith luv, keep the faith.


  • lapushbaby

    I haven’t seen 500 days, but i really want to, does that count? Maybe when I get back home….

    I also love Hello Kitty, and conveniently have a 10 year old girl who has always loved HK, so I can indulge myself by indulging her!! I gave her some of my stuff from the 70s that was at my parent’s house, she flipped!

    In addition to Twilight, I also love Harry Potter, and have been obsessing on it much longer, of course, and I am also one of those dorks who loves Project Runway, and was SO excited that it started again this week. If I wasn’t on vacation, I would spend the weekend re-watching it!

  • Ang

    I actually already had plans to see 500 Days of Summer tomorrow! Glad to hear you liked it. I love this 500 Days/Twilight trailer. It’s really well done.

  • hermes

    Pattinson’s off of our “like” list now is he?
    oye veh!.

    Look at it this way UC… they had to do the same thing for Zac Efron.

    Enough said.

  • 500 Days of Summer was great! I wish there were more smart movies like that to choose from at the theater.

  • I must see 500 Days of Summer!

    The real life has been kicking me in the butt lately, so please keep up the good work of entertaining me on a daily basis. πŸ™‚

    I’m also going to pet my pussies cats and wait for the shit to stop hitting the fan.


  • PS, It’s PG, can I have my silly blue whatsits avatar back? I’ve grown rather fond of it..

  • newtonandyorkiehavethebestlinesEVER

    i’m dying to see (500) days of summer, but i have no idea when this film comes out here πŸ™

  • Ali

    500 days of summer was amazing, and the soundtrack was soo perfect i’ve already downloaded all the songs onto my ipod. the 500 days/twilght trailer was absolute perfection on my totally crappy day lol <3

  • *JR*

    I just saw 500 DOS today and I loved it. Loved Zooey Deschanel.

  • Have a fab weekend!
    It’s already 1pm Sunday here so my weekend is over. But it was a good one.

    P.S. Totally watched this Aussie surfing movie last night and the weird gay guy in it looked familiar . . . credits roll and what would ya know, it’s Xavier Samuel! I literally jumped out my seat and started screaming. Shitloads of bare arse shots and possible frontage. Weird movie . . .


  • That
    awesome!! Forwarded it on to my unicorn, I mean, boyfriend already. And my best friend who’s a girl who doesn’t like Twilight. Another unicorn. Of sorts.

    I’m so over Zooey Deschanel, and I LOVE the trailer with Edward and “Bells” instead. Rob makes a gorgeous Joey G-L, even though JG-L is gorgeous already.

  • TheColdWoman

    Ahhh!!! I’m so excited for (500) Days of Summer! I keep on checking at my local indie theatre but it’s been “Coming Soon” for a few weeks now. πŸ™

  • rb

    (500) days of summer was very enjoyable except for a few things. one of them being–his name was Tom Hanson, johnny depp’s character on 21 Jump Street. I found it really distracting! am i just showing my age?

  • ocnlvr83

    UC- I just have to say I love your wedding rings! Awesome post, by the way.

  • June

    That was AWESOME!!! I too loved 500 days of summer and watched the trailer a bunch. That spoof was the funniest thing ever!!!

  • trixi

  • Lht4ad8

    This is the best site ever. You never fail to make me laugh. LOVE the first trailer. Pure genius.

  • Nika

    Pure genius!! Both trailers πŸ˜›

  • E.MC

    Because of the smiths thing in the beginning I really want to see it! The Smiths are probably my favorite band..
    But IΒ΄m alone when it comes to music and the smiths, my friends are more into like Mcfly n stuff..

  • Erica

    Where do you get oreo cupcakes in Philly?

  • Kate

    YUM Cupcakes!

    I loved 500DOS. And whoever made that video is very impressive. I was amazed at how well the lines actually matched up with their motions and talking. Thanks for sharing!
