The Reluctant Twilighter

I can't believe I have a Twilight blog…

New Moon Mania!!! November 16, 2009

HOLY HELL!  New Moon Mania is now in full force, people!  The premiere was tonight in Westwood, CA and a billion trillion fans and celebrities were there.  I caught a little bit of the livefeed on the red carpet.  Anya Marina (from the soundtrack) was doing the red carpet coverage, and she’s an idiot.  Her voice was annoying and she spent a LOT of time talking about herself.  Twitter was much more entertaining, especially with the LTR girls there.  Pretty much everyone looked beautiful, even Rob!  Surprised?  No, no, of course not.

Kristen was… well, she was gorgeous.  Her dress was amazing, take a look, I picked the extra big size for you:

I think I’m in love!  I can’t wait to see her tonight on Conan O’Brien, word from the east coast Twitterers is she did a good job.  It’s so cool to see the difference between Kristen now and Kristen one year ago.  LOVE. IT.  Go here if you want to take a look at everyone in more detail.  My other favorites were Anna Kendrick (Jessica) and Dakota Fanning (Jane.)  My least favorites were sadly, Stephenie Meyer and Christian Serratos (Angela.)  Major fails, sorry ladies!

I'm sorry!

So currently there is a show on my television right now called “Love Bites.”  It’s on MTV.  Basically, the entire premise of this half-hour show is debating whether or not Rob and Kristen are dating.  GROSS!  Why, MTV, WHY?!?!  You guys suck.  One minute you’re talking about the media invading their lives, the next minute you’re interviewing some a-hole paparazzi who swears he saw them making out or something.  Nice life MTV.  I hate you.  Changing the channel now.  I guess I can endure a few minutes of Jay Leno to see what’s going on with Mr. Taylor Lautner tonight.

We also have this.  People Magazine just named Rob the sexiest man alive.  Well, maybe.  That’s the word on the internet street, at least, but I couldn’t find anything official.  Sooo…. congratulations?  I guess?  Who cares.  I guess it’s kind of a big deal since that title usually goes to older men… nope, still don’t care.

Fact or Fake?

Ooh!  Taylor’s on!  He looks the same every day.  Girls are screaming.  He brought his grandma.  Awww… and now they’re showing an embarrassing clip from his past.  He hung out with old people in Vancouver to escape the crazy fans.  His laugh makes me cringe.  It’s kind of nerdy.  Sorry.  Oh crap!  Now they’re showing an exclusive clip from the movie!  I getter get out of here!  That’s it for tonight, I hope you all enjoy your week!  Thanks for reading!

PS:  This doesn’t have much to do with anything, but Jamie Campbell Bower (Caius) tweeted this today: “I like Johnny Flynn’s new EP.  Named Sweet William.  Pretty Pretty Pretty. x”  I smiled so big when I read this.  Why?  Because he has over sixty thousand followers and he can get the JF-word out much, much, more effectively than I can.  Thanks Jamie!  I heart you now.

PPS:  I saw the movie “Pirate Radio” yesterday.  It was awesome.  So fun and funny.  It stars a young actor named Tom Sturridge, who just happens to be a good friend of Rob.  After all this New Moon business dies down, I will discuss my theories on how these two friends (along with 3-4 other young British boys) are either a) clones or b) robots.  Stay tuned.

PPPS:  THREE MORE DAYS!!!  WEEEEEEE!!!!  Okay, now I really gots to go, we’re having a huge windstorm here in Seattle and my power is going to go out any second!  Yipes!

 

Quick Recap September 14, 2009

Yesterday was a big day.  I would love to go into major detail right now, but I’m super-tired so here’s what I can say right now:

Fact: Kristen looked beautiful.   I loved her hair and her dress.

Fact: Ashley Greene also looked beautiful. I loved her hair and her dress too.

Fact: Everyone else I know thought Ashley looked beautiful too. I don’t know what the folks over at Entertainment Weekly were smoking when they put her on their worst dressed list… why E.W.? WHY?  Usually I’m on your side on everything, but not today.  YOU HAVE FAILED ME.

Fact: Muse kicked ass.  I can’t wait for the new album.

Fact: Beyonce wins MVP of the night. That girl’s got everything.

Fact: Watching the New Moon trailer on a big screen TV is way better than on my laptop. I got goosebumps either way.

Fact: Today is my sister’s birthday!!!   Happy Birthday Sister!!!  Thank you for being one of my 3 regular readers!

Fact: November 20th is TOO FAR AWAY!!!!

Be back soon!!

 

Big Time Stuff September 12, 2009

I remembered that this blog came about originally because I used to email a friend with all the latest and greatest Twilight news.  She was a busy lady, who still is, so I feel the need today to make sure everyone is well-informed on the events of this weekend.  Big time stuff coming up.

First, the Video Music Awards is airing on Sunday night on MTV.  This. is. big.  BIG! TIME! STUFF!  Ashley Greene will be fashion correspondent on the red carpet.  Muse will be performing a song from their new album.  (As we all know, Muse is one of Stephenie Meyer’s favorite bands who inspired her while she was writing the Twilight series.  Plus, they kick ass.)  Death Cab for Cutie will be premiering their song, “Meet Me On The Equinox” on MTV.com.  Why does this matter to me, you ask?  Because this song was written exclusively for the New Moon soundtrack!  These Northwest boys apparently LOVE Twilight…well, not really I don’t think.  But they were kind enough to help Chris Weitz out and make a song.  Looks like the entire soundtrack is going to be pretty awesome, I heard Bon Iver is contributing as well.  I can’t wait.  BTW, you can already pre-order the soundtrack.  Done and done.

Hometown Heroes!!

Furthermore, on this same awards show, Rob, Kristen, and Taylor will be presenting a third New Moon trailer.  A trailer that leaked onto the internet today but was snatched up by Summit before I had a chance to watch it.  Now I want to take this time to talk to everyone about a situation that could possibly arise on Sunday night.  Last year, the VMA’s were hosted by a Mr. Russell Brand.  His hosting did not go over very well, both in the Twilight world and in the regular, non-Twilight one (does such a world exist?) as well.  This is because he made some not-so-nice jokes about the Jonas brothers and their purity rings, called George Bush a retarded cowboy, and much more devastating, interrupted the cast of Twilight while they were trying to introduce a performance by Paramore.  He jumped in with his crazy antics, completely cutting off Rob’s lines, not allowing him to speak at all.  Thus causing chaos in the Twilight world.  War was declared on poor Russell and I’m actually pretty surprised that they asked him to come back this year.  Pleasantly surprised, that is.  I love Russell Brand.  I think he is hilarious.  I read his book, it was really interesting.  I watched his comedy special, and I laughed HARD.  He has a great website with lots of funny videos and posts.  (JUST ADDED! Go check out his website! Today he posted a video today where he sings a little song to a picture of Rob!) Now, there is a possibility that Russell could F things up again, and I hope that if that happens you all can forgive him.  He really means well, he just has a problem controlling himself sometimes.  So give him a break, okay?  The best we can hope for is that they chain him up backstage when it’s time for the Twilight kids to do their thing.  At the very least, turn off his mic when the trailer starts.

Give him a chance.  He's actually quite nice.

Give him a chance. He's actually quite nice.

Another important event this weekend is Bella’s birthday, (Sunday, September 13th) which means Stephenie Meyer Day in Forks!  The real town of Forks has chosen this day each year to honor Stephenie and all the attention that her books have brought to their little town.  Exciting activities include: a tour of Forks High School, a character look-alike contest, a car-decorating contest, a bonfire at First Beach, and cake!!  WOOT!  WOOT!  Try not to go too crazy, kids.

Let's get this party started!

Let's get this party started!

Even if you can’t make it to Forks, at least do a little something for Bella on her birthday.  Sing a birthday song, eat a cupcake, whatever you gotta do.  The first time I ever went to Forks and La Push was a year ago, on the day after Stephenie Meyer Day.  The entire town was still decorated for Bella’s birthday.   Banners and balloons in every store window.  I was so embarrassed to be there and declared it the nerdiest thing I had ever done.  Little did I know that a year later I’d be doing this…

Anyways, I hope you all enjoy the events of this weekend, I know for sure I will!
