The other day Old Man Bobby and I were listening to some Sketching in Stereo and talking about our buddies from the band. I was shocked to find that Rob had been hit by a cab in NYC. I didn’t even know Rob was in NYC! Old Man Bobby promised Rob was OK, and went on to ask if Charlie’s troubles were over. Neither of us knew. (We’re thinking of you Chaaaarrrlieee!)

Imagine my surprise when the very next day I read on Letters to Twilight that Robert Pattinson had been hit by a NYC cab. What a coinci–! My thought process went something like this: “Son of a bitch! Old Man Bobby let me go on and on about Rockstar Rob and didn’t tell me he was talking about RPattz! How embarrassing! I’m glad it was just us in the car.”

So later I told him I had a bone to pick. The use of the word Bone always gets his attention, naturally. When he caught on to my tone he got a little nervous. I chastised him for letting me go on and on about Rockstar Rob like that. He had no idea what I was talking about. I reminded him we had been talking about Sketching in Stereo, then he told me about Rob, and then we started talking about Charlie, and I asked him what part of that conversation was supposed to clue me in that he was talking about RPattz. Warn a girl when your mental train jumps the tracks for crying out loud!

He was embarrassed enough that I didn’t even bring up the fact that he had referred to Robert Pattinson simply as Rob AND expected me to follow along. Not as Your Rob. Not as Rob Pattinson. Not as RPattz. Not even as The Forehead, as he normally does. Just Rob. Anyone know how to spot a Unicorn in camouflage?

BTW, I’m glad you’re OK Rob! Both of you!

I just updated my post on my casting call experience with photos altered long ago by Letters to Twilight (thanks again girls). While I was there I checked to see if I saw any familiar faces. I want to believe that Kiowa Gordon (Embry Call) is the Quileute Cutie I posted a picture of, but alas I am afraid not. If only it weren’t so blurry and I could find out where he auditioned, maybe I could get to sleep.

BTW, has anyone else noticed this about IMDB’s listing on New Moon?

Chaske Spencer Lakota
Tyson Houseman Quil Ateara
Kiowa Gordon Hualapai

Tribe names instead of character names for Chaske and Kiowa?

Dear Kristen Stewart,

I’ve spent a lot of time over at Letters to Twilight, so it’s sometimes hard for me not to think of my reviews, and other communications with people I will never meet, in anything other than letter format. So, that being said…Adventureland. Yeah. I think I kinda loved it.

While I would really love to one day see you play someone healthy and (gasp!) happy, you once again did a good job of playing depressive and damaged. I wonder why you were chosen for this role. Your character (Em Lewin) was an NYU student. I don’t know if she was a grad student like the male lead (James Brennan, played by Jesse Eisenberg). I might have missed it, if it was covered. The only reason I bring it up is because I know I was distracted by the ages of your characters. I think it was knowing how young you were while filming (what, 16?) or if it was because the two of you had crappy summer jobs, but I couldn’t help but think of both of you as high school kids. I know others were concerned by this as well because the couple next to me had a conversation about why it was that you two were always drinking, and in bars no less. One of them hadn’t caught on to the fact that you were both college students and probably over 21. So, I think we were all trying to keep in mind that the characters were older than they appeared.

Aside from that I thought everything was great. I was surprised to not like the character (Mike Connell) played by Ryan Reynolds. Good job on his part, because I really like him. I loved the 80’s feel of it, though at times it did seem much more ’83 than ’87. Ok, so I guess I had one more somewhat negative thing to say. Sorry. None of that is your fault, however, so please don’t take offense. I read a review before going to the movie (they gave it an A-) and they compared it to American Graffiti and Dazed and Confused. That’s excellent company to keep. Only time will tell if Adventureland becomes the classic that these two films have become, but I definitely agree that it captured the feel of the moment in much the same ways these other two films capture the feel of the eras they were portraying.

I hope Adventureland does well for you at the box office. I know our theater was pretty full 40 minutes before the movie started. It’s been a while since I’ve seen that kind of showing for a non-fanboy/girl movie. The theater was pretty packed by showtime, and everyone seemed to really enjoy it. So, well done, and I hope filming New Moon is going well. Have fun!

Just in case you don’t get to see this on Letters to Twilight right away, here is a description of my Phoenix New Moon Casting Call (there’s still time tomorrow if you want to audition!).

I was fortunate enough to sneak a peek at the Phoenix casting call for New Moon. My friends Erika and Lisa (fellow Twilighters) were happy to keep me company on the journey. Erika even used her Mistress voice on me to make me go inside the building by myself. You can thank her for the pictures I took inside, really. I wasn’t sure I would be allowed, being as gringa as they come. Everyone was very nice, and I really didn’t even get any looks for being there, even though I clearly didn’t fit the description of the casting call. I brought my real camera, so I guess that explained why I was there.

Registration took place in the lobby of the Phoenix Indian Center. It seemed pretty well organized. They seemed to be directing people very well for minimum confusion. It’s a smallish lobby and when I got there, there were about 100 people crammed into it. The people running the show were calling people in groups by age. I have no idea how many people were already back there auditioning. The atmosphere in the lobby was tense. I don’t know why, but I expected a sort of fangirl SQUEE. Nope, there was very quiet murmur considering the number of people. I didn’t see anyone practicing their lines or anything, unless they were doing it silently. Most people were talking to a buddy quietly. I didn’t feel free to walk around because it was so cramped, and because the mood clearly said, “Don’t bother anyone.” I took what pictures I could around the door where the light was best. It was pretty dark in there and I didn’t want to bother anyone with my flash.

The first picture I’m sending is of the doors. You can see that people are pressed up against the glass. It really was that crowded in there. If you look on the left side of the doors you’ll see a reflection of a woman in a bluish top and black pants. That’s Celene, a Twilight Mom. She was very nice and made us gringas feel right at home. She was waiting for a friend and fellow Twilight Mom to arrive. I didn’t get the friend’s name but when she arrived she told us her best hope for Seth was in the emergency room. I hope he’s OK!

I spy a Twilight Mom!

Robert Pattinson’s stalker threat

Monday, 2 February 2009

Robert Pattinson might have millions of female fans but some of them are quite scary.

Poor Rob can’t even find refuge at home.

Click here to see the latest photos of Robert and Kristen >

They have found out where he lives and they are determined to get to know the Twilight star personally.

Rob told OK magazine: “There was a group of girls that left little notes in my car, outside of my apartment.

“One of the first notes said: I’m not weird, but please call me.

“The next day the note said: Please don’t ignore me.

“And the next day it said I’m going to kill myself if you keep ignoring me! (but I’m not weird, ok?).”

Ladies, ladies, please. A little decorum. Don’t leave notes on his car. That will only make him stay home and then where will we be? Without new pictures of Rob. Instead, leave notes for him on your blogs. Make him stalk you. Do you think he doesn’t Google himself? Here, like this:

Dear Rob,
 
As of Friday, I am between jobs. The economy being what it is, no one is hiring travel agents. I am smarting from being let go, and my soul is in need of a little inspiration after too many years as a corporate drone. I am pursuing a new, more pleasing line of work: Kept Woman. You are at the very top of my list for Sugar Daddy candidates, though I realize that since I am quite a bit older than you Daddy might not be an appropriate term. I am eager to please, however, so I’ll call you anything you like. I assure you I am quite creative and accomplished in, shall we say, the appropriate skill set. I am a self-starter who is comfortable taking the initiative, but I am also a team player, if you take my meaning. In addition I am independent, needing my fair share of alone time. While I do enjoy affection and romance, I am not needy, nor am I clingy. I do not require anything fancy. I prefer Converse to couture, take-out to tofu. And marriage is not on the table. This is strictly a temporary position. In short, if the following qualities appeal to you, give me a call. We’ll start by going out for a few drinks, get a quick bite, and see where it leads.

  • Self-starter
  • Team player
  • Comfortable taking initiative
  • Eager to please
  • Experienced
  • Creative and accomplished
  • Independent
  • Affectionate and romantic
  • Low maintenance

If you prefer not to sully your own blog with evidence of your stalker tendencies, you can always visit my friends at Letters to Rob. Tell them their #1 Fan sent you.

In one day?!? Where did that come from? Was it the Disturbing Lack of News? Was it Fair Claudia? I think not. I believe I have the lovely ladies at Letters To Twilight and Letters to Rob to thank for my new found fame. I share this award with you, theMoonisDown and UnintendedChoice. Thanks for the links, and a huge thank you for bringing so many moments of hilarity to my life.
