So, I’m sincerely sorry for and ashamed of the weeks I’ve gone without posting. It’s not for lack of wanting to post, but my life is just kinda shit right now and I still don’t have my computer back. *grumbles*
But anyway…HOLY BREAKING DAWN PART TWO, BATMAN!! I have so much to say about the movie, but even though I’ve seen it 3 times already, I still have friends who haven’t seen it so I’m not going to be spoiling it anytime soon. However, I will say that the 3rd time I saw the movie, it was with four people who hadn’t seen the movie (and they are not as crazy as me and truly had no clue what they were in for as they are not on twitter or up with anything promo-wise) so, I really wanted to see them freak the fuck out and expected even more freakage since they are so out of the loop! But, the effin’ theater was practically empty aside from us, which meant it was completely silent through the entire thing. What a TOTAL FUCKIN’ LET DOWN!
I wanted to see my friends react and hear the audience react with them as I had the previous two times, but without the audience gasping and cheering, etc it really was a buzz kill for me and my friends. :( It makes me super sad that when it was over, they weren’t nearly as excited about this final amazing and epic movie as they wanted to be!! They felt it had been really hyped up to more than it really was and wanted to know what in the hell I was going so crazy about!?!!! I was like “you were freaking the fuck out, right?” and they were like “yeah…” but they just were sitting in shock and awe as we all were but at the same time confused about the hype/let down.
But… I think I figured it out! I think you just can’t watch it for the first time without a mostly full audience, so you have more of chance of people being vocal and drawing you in. Needless to say, I’ve been begging my friends to go back during a busy time this weekend, so they can experience it again, but with both the pleasure of watching everyone else freak the fuck out and feeling the audience participation…it’s just such a better fan experience. So, if you’re reading this and haven’t seen it, go during a BUSY TIME so you can REALLY feel…that feeling of…FOREVER!
Stepping off that soapbox and onto another…. I’ve been putting together a pretty hilarious post (IMHO) about the Twi-Puppets trip to BD in LA pt 2 with @TwoPeas1pod, but before I post that one, I feel compelled to express my thoughts on the following Bill Condon interview. I was just composing my puppet post and catching up on Promo stuffs and came across this interview, bringing me to a screeching halt. At around 3:02 he says he doesn’t think there will be any commentary from any of the actors. (SPOILER ALERT: you may want to skip to that part if you haven’t seen the movie, some spoilery things are said in here)
WHAT THE FUCK, SUMMIT?!?! Seriously, THIS is what brings all the girls to the yard and you’re going to dick us over again with no cast commentary!?! I’m FREAKING THE FUCK OUT! Someone calm me down!
Please, someone find a way to get through to Summit/Lionsgate that we live for Rob, Kristen, Taylor commentary. MAKE IT FUCKIN’ HAPPEN!
Sorry again for the lack of posting. :(
Wow! Just as soon as I got my computer back I found that it was still broken and have to send it back. That plus #Sandy have just made blogging just peachy.
So, I’ve mailed #Knitward, #Yarnella, and #KnitBlocker to @TwoPeas1Pod so she can bring them across the country for BD Pt 2 in LA! I must say, I haven’t really been able to get pepped up about the finale with everything that has gone on, but mailing my little crocheted babies to TP1P sure has gotten be excited! I can’t wait to hear of their adventures and hopefully some celeb pix.
Another thing that got me pepped was FINALLY getting to watch the MTV First with the Twifecta and @JoshuaHorowitz. @RobstenDreams has a whole page of videos from the junket but here’s the link just for the mtv first vids. The MTV First interview made me want to dance Gangnam Style (I’ve given folks a link that have no fucking clue what Gangnam Style is, just like me). I found another good manip of this at @RKDreaming and have to share, cuz it’s Man-Nip Monday after all.
I so wish this was a gif!
So much is going to happen this week and I’ll be without a computer again. GAR! Here are some of the shows you need to setup your DVR for, but please check @RobstenDreams sidebar for a constantly updated list of appearances!
Happy Promo Week Y’all and safe travels to all mah peeps!
Woo Hoo! I got ol’ Bessy back today and they didn’t have to format ‘er! Woot!
Sadly, I was more worried about saving my blog stuff than my
last two years of un-backed up family pictures. #ThatsNormal
All these weeks without my computer, I’ve hardly posted to this
total piece of shite quality Twilight Fansite and even more-so have fallen behind in all the awful awesome gossip and ACTUAL Twi-news! Of course, in my first hour back on my bebe, I of course, took my first gander at Letters to Twilight (because they are the reason for this blog’s existence, duh) and what did I find??? We got an effin’ shoutout in a post! Seriously! The moment I’ve longed for all this time and I almost missed it completely on a Taylor Tuesday no less!!! GAH!
I’m so glad those gals still have kept their snark, wit and spectacular shiny-ness when it comes to Twilight Goodness, as so many sites have gone down for the count! Not to turn this into a love letter for LTT, but hey, I love ‘em and they’re just awesome and it’s my site so I’ll keep goin’. Have y’all seen their new adventure over at That’s Normal? No? Well, you should check it out cuz everything they talk about is TOTALLY NORMAL! [don't click that link - you really don't want to ] – I tried to warn you!
Strangely enough, and seriously coincidental, I created a blog with a few of my friends (around the same time) so we can also continue on with our blather after AiT becomes irrelevant. *sniffs* It’s called FickleLittleBitches and I posted a payback earworm for Bekah cuz that shiz is hard to get outta your head, Dayum! You’re welcome for not one, but TWO earworms!
To further spread the love, Twitarded is our 2nd favorite site which is run by some awesome twat-waffles who also created a new blog to carry on the hilariousness, which is called BlogWaffles! They are so awesome and IMHO they put our collective sites to shame with their band of dedicated snarkilicious bloggers who post almost DAILY (and yes, I’m totally jealous)!
So, moving on, I can’t believe Breaking Dawn Pt 2 is just days away and I’m not going to LA! Gah!
I still can’t believe no one has offered to stuff me in their suitcase. I’ve been pretty furious with the lack of promotion for the movie this far, but at least they’ve started to announce some tv appearances that are coming up for Rob, Kristen, Taylor and Stephanie Meyer. However, it is just plain effin’ stupid that there haven’t been any joint interviews scheduled. It’s the final movie and the best interviews are ones with the 3 main stars together. WTF, Summit/Lionsgate?!?
Now that I have my computer I hope to be a more regular poster again…. You know, I’m definitely well overdue for a rant about “the scandal,” but I’ll save that for another post.
