New Moon premiering in Knoxville, TN

Knoxville1Dear City of Knoxville, TN,

Are you ready? Do you think you can handle the swarm of girls that will be lining up at your doors weeks in advance? Are your Motel 6’s all paid up on their electric bills so they can Keep the lights on for everyone rolling into town? Do you even have any idea what the hell I’m talking about? Oh. Let me start over. Apparently New Moon is premiering in your town. Are you prepared?

I know the article only mentions the movie showing early for a charity event, but already plans are set in motion. Blogs have commented on how odd the choice of Knoxville is (no offense) over Los Angeles but have praised the cast for going somewhere a little less flashy. Airline’s customer service lines have been busy all week with Twihards trying to change their November flights from LAX to, uh, KNOX (?), fighting with the customer service rep over the $200 change flight fee but deciding in the end that “it’s worth it” to see Robert Pattinson, up close and personal, in the deep south.

I, for one, understand completely why the execs at Summit decided to whisk the cast from sunny LA to the Redneck Riviera. Knoxville offers the cast the following advantages for their site seeing tour: Mullets, Wife Beaters, Bluegrass, RC Colas and Moon Pies, Lee Press-On Nails, Fanny Packs, and Chevy Pick-up Trucks with gun racks and rebel flag bumper stickers, versus the following disadvantages of what is sure to be seen in LA: Hipster man bangs, flannel or plaid pearl snap shirts, dj’s who mash up pop music and oldies, vegan food, minx, murses & Toyota Prius’. Are you prepared with Knoxville’s finest rednecks to greet ‘dem fellers from dat der big ocean in da west?

Note to Solomon: reliving the 'best moment of your life' (pic with Kstew) will not be happening again this year

Note to Solomon: reliving the 'best moment of your life' (pic with Kstew) will not be happening again this year

On second thought, how well are your Wal-Mart’s stocked with tissues? Because when the news breaks that the premiere isn’t actually in Knoxville but the movie is just showing a few days early to raise a lot of money for a good cause, the devastating cries from Twihards in their New Moon t-shirts, Pattinson pants & Wolfpack tiny backpacks will be heard from downtown Knoxville all the way to Paris, Texas. Heck, once everyone finds out that instead of their beloved Edward, Bella & Jacob, Summit sent Gill Birmingham, Christian Serratos & a random wolf to represent the event, I wouldn’t even be surprised if there’s a riot amongst the city of tents painted with murals of shirtless Edward.  I bet that once a bus rolls up in front of the theatre the rioters will calm for a moment thinking that Sam Bradley has come to serenade the crowd with soulful tunes, but when they find out it’s just Solomon Trimble on the greyhound crashing the show, the riots will begin again. Are you prepared?

Perhaps you should reissue a statement in your newspaper clarifying that when you say “Although confirmation of the Knoxville premiere of the movie is set” you actually mean a Knoxville premiere (aka first time showing in Knoxville) and not the New Moon premiere that is being whispered all over the web.  That way, you can save your police force the trouble of calming down the riots that are sure to begin when Solomon Trimble shows up as the “star” for the event. You don’t want your city experiencing the 2nd-hand embarrassment of Twihard-girl-on-twihard-girl mud wrestling, winner being the one who gets to ask Solomon to autograph her left breast, if you don’t have to.

Bring home some moonpies for me,

PS: before you southerners call me a “damn yank” and get mad at my poking fun of Knoxville, all those references came from EastFriend, who is a southern girl born & raised. Get mad at her. Just don’t tell her you love UT. Then she’ll be mad at you.

Did you see this posted places and think people were silly for assuming that the actual premiere would be moved to Knoxville like we did?

The Forum is a great place to discuss football rivalries
LTR is a great place to discuss Rob. Actually, anywhere is a great place to discuss Rob, sigh…

  1. “You don’t want your city experiencing the 2nd-hand embarrassment of Twihard-girl-on-twihard-girl mud wrestling, winner being the one who gets to ask Solomon to autograph her left breast, if you don’t have to.”….
    you forget to write that she will get the autograph tatooted on her left breast LOl!!!

    • oh, i just figured that was assumed… duh.. who WOULDN’T want that!?

      • id get it on my butt. i love solomon that much

    • you are a total as*hole! if you ever accually went to that area of tenessee you would know that people are accually respectable! there are just as many stupid people(lets be honest EVERYPLACE ON EARTH HAS STUPID PEOPLE)as anyplace! as for all those things to ‘watch out for’ we dont do basicly any of the crap mentioned in that artical! i know this because i live like 10min from where that theatre is. so id advise you& everyone else like you to shut up about thing you don’t really know about!

    • Whether the movie will show early or the premeire will be there, you obviously have not had the opportunity to experience the south. Who wouldn’t want to visit a place where people are actually real. I think the Rob and Kristen both would appreciate a little southern hospitality instead of getting hounded by the disrespectful papz in NYC and LA. I have had the opportunity to visit all three places, and I will let you know first hand, Knoxville, TN would be a breath of fresh air for the overly harrassed actors. Make fun all you want, but the fact is, Tennessee is a state with strong beliefs and reason. Don’t get me wrong, I am the biggest RPatz fan out there, but he is a person, and he does deserve respect. It is his job to act and he is good at it. He has the ability to captivate people, but he doesn’t deserve the obnoxious stalkers and people who think they are above a city were a person’s life is truely taken to heart.

    • Okay first off I live in Knoxville, TN and it is far from rednecks and moonpies here. Although we do enjoy our RC Cola and moonpies, we also have an education. We are very happy to be welcoming the Twilight stars to our town, and all the fans… It will be a huge change from our quite life, but yes we are ready. This isn’t the first premire that we have held here in our beautiful city. I am hoping to beat all of the craziness and snag myself a seat at the Premire…. because we have a bigger advantage than most. Expect the unexpected when you come here, and keep an open mind…. I am interested in why Knoxville, TN was chosen for the premire, but in the same sence we have a lot to offer. Anyways we are educated moonpie eating moonshine drinking rednecks, so don’t be surprized! See you in November, Yall Come Back Now, you hear?

      • Regal, the huge theater chain, is headquartered in Knoxville, TN, which is why they are doing this event. They premiere a lot of movies here…usually one a year for this charity event.

        PS. this whole article about rednecks in Knoxville is quite offensive. BTW, Oak Ridge/Y-12, which is home of supersmart scientist (although they do make nuclear bombs) is just outside of Knoxville. I would research before just posting one person’s thinking of Knoxville.

    • i live in knoxville tn and we r not driving chevys with gun racks you stereotypical asshole we probably have more class than your holier than thou wannabe writing ass. just want u to know ur a dick

    • we r not rednecks we probably have more class than u and we don’t have chevys with gun racks on them
      knoxville is very nice not nearly any traffic like CA
      but unless you’ve been here don’t judge.

      • i’ve been there! and i went to school in TN!

  2. oh la – Redneck Riviera! too funny and also so very sad because I really can see it just the way you described it…

  3. Girl, I think they are prepared…after all that is during Football season (not that anyone really likes UT…well, unless you REALLY like orange and honestly who does?) plus, Dollywood is right up the road and everyone knows what a draw that place is with its airbrushed T-shirts of a wolf howling at the moon and and freshly pulled taffy.

    If nothing else maybe they can get Lee Greenwood to come over and sing “God Bless the U.S.A.” cause that would totally make up for Rob and KStew not being there.

    • you’re right- Lee would SOO make up for it. And Solomon is really looking forward to Dollywood

    • dollywood AND leegreenwood WIN in my book. buying my tickets

  4. OH! And Eastfriend…I thought Redneck Riviera was Panama City Beach, FL???

    • It is PCB. But maybe for the purposes of attracting the Rich and Famous, the Ocoee would do in a pinch…there’s waves and everything.

      • I’m pretty sure the Redneck Riviera is Myrtle Beach, SC. That’s what I always thought it was anyway. They sell shirts there with that on it and rednecks hangin’ out the Beverly Hillbillies truck. LOL

  5. I am 100% in agreement that this is retardation central, but I am willing to roll with it because I can drive from my house to Knoxville in a day. So, allowing for . . .. . what do you think, 2 days in advance to camp out? . . . . .I should only need to take about a week out of my life to try and get those tickets.

    That’s 5 hours driving, 2 days camping out, 1 day waiting in line behind the REAL twihards who were there before me, 3 days crying hysterically because despite their claims of “no online pre-sales” some bastards managed to get them all, and another 5 hours home.

    • you’re a woman with a plan- That’s Normal

    • will you be our official correspondant?

      • No! ME! ME! ME! I’ve already called the hubs at work and told him I’ll be camping out in Knoxville on some unspecified dates. When he asked why and I told him, he said….wait for it…..

        “That’s Normal.”

        True. I nearly died. Needless to say, I read LTT and LTR to him aloud almost every day and it turns out he was actually listening.

        • hahaha.. AMAAAZZINNNGGGG

        • unicorns totally understand THATS NORMAL!

          love hiM!

          • He’s actually not a unicorn, but he loves me enough that he puts up with my Rob/Twilight obsessions. He also calls Rob a tool.

      • I will totally be a correspondent . . . especially if Holly will be my partner in crime. I’m not “out” with my friends yet about the extent of the TwiCrazy I’ve got going on over here.

  6. Sweet Jesus! Knoxville is 2 hours away from me! Yes, I’m a southenah. No, I’m not a redneck (but that’s exactly what a redneck would say if she didn’t want you to think she’s a redneck). Anyway, I doubt this is actually going to happen, but if it is, I’m a gone git me soma them there pattinson pants, see if Leroy can tattoo me one a’ them apples on ma’ ass cheek an’ head on down to the preemear.

    • you better be there in all your pattinson pants glory!

    • head on down to the preeemear.

      LOVE IT!!

      so i assume you’re ‘fixin’ ta’ go to knoxville now!

      • BTW Moon….I was 35 years old before I realized that everyone didn’t say “fixin to”. I know…bless my heart.

    • So what, we carpool those last two hours? I’ll see about getting a tent for camping out at the theather. . . .

  7. As a Tennessee gal, I’m not sure if I should be offended or not. But wait, I’m not from East TN, so it’s all good!! One more thing-Go VOLS!!!!! :)

    • EastFriend is gonna kick your ass…… :)

      • Bring it on! Us Southern gals now how to scrap. :D

    • I almost don’t want to say it b/c I’ll start a stupid college football shouting match, but my husband might divorce me if I don’t say it: ROLL TIDE!!!

      *hides in embarrassment and looks around to see what fool just shouted ‘roll tide’ on a Twilight blog*

      • i have no idea what that means!

        • You totally would understand if you lived in Tennessee or Alabama. The Vols and the Tide are HUGE rivals.

          • As long as you aren’t a Gator fan…

        • UC – you’re truly lucky you don’t know what that means. I live in GA and trust…SEC rivalries are the bane of my existance!

          • no one cares about football in eastern PA.. not exactly true b/c some ppl are penn state fans.. but NOTHING like in the south- or like basketball is to ppl in indiana!

          • OMG! UC, u live in a bubble. Penn State is HUGE here. Eastern PA cares a great deal about College Football. In fact Beaver stadium is the LARGEST is the country and State college becomes the third most populous city in the state on football weekends. I bleed blue and white and if I walked out of my building and shouted “WE ARE” I’d get the correct response (along with some odd stares.)

            Wait, what were we talking about? New moon or something.

          • i happen to LOVE my bubble. don’t you dare pop it:)

            seriously. i know like 3 ppl who like college football except for my friends who went to penn state… seriously!

          • Last think I ever expected to see argued about in the comments section: football. Unless it was discussing which football (aka soccer) team RPattz likes best or if he just pretends so that he can drink in sports bars at 10am and have it be socially acceptable.

          • I love how UT is being mistaken for Utah and University of Texas. Because that means that allllllll these fabulous people could care less about University of Tennessee. Like me.

            Knoxville is the home of UT–and that’s the University of Tennessee.

            Please allow me to be obnoxious for 2 seconds:
            Gooooooooooooooo DAWGS! Sic ‘em–woof, woof, woof!!!!

            Yeah, I’m a Georgia Bulldog and we hate the Vols. I’m sure the Cullens do, as well.

            (I jest, people–simmer down.)

            Dear Moon & UC,
            Love how a post about NM having a special showing in Knoxville turned into battle of the college teams, a rankling over stereotypes, and all us southern gals coming to your defense. Do you LOVE that we real Southerners have a sense of humor? Cause we do. And we’re proud of it. A country boy (girl, whatever) can survive, just as Hank Williams, Jr. once brilliantly sang.

            That is all.

          • Word. The only part of being surrounded by the SEC madness is tailgating.

        • You are a judgemental Bitch. If Knoxville is good enough for the Worlds Fair, It is good enough for New Moon. Get over it. We win…..YOU LOSE!

          • someone’s a bit cranky!

      • wow im kinda glad i know nothing about competitive sports anymore. i just write nerdy shiz about twilight and music…

  8. There MUST be pics of the secondary cast members at Dollywood. Oh, it has to happen. And if not Dollywood, at least at one of the outlet malls in Pigeon Forge. Because that would be totally normal.

  9. Just wanted to let you know that your stereotype of Tennessee and the South just lost you a fan and I am sure I am not the only one… no reason to be such a jerk

    • I’m sorry you feel that way! Again… all the stereotype parts were written by EastFriend who lives in the south & can attest to the stereotypes being true for some people- just as the LA stereotype I compared it with is true… and the stereotypes of the North where I live. I also can attest, first-hand, that I’ve seen each one of those things I listed in the south since I went to college in Tennessee… We love everyone- all our fans with mullets, who drink RC colas & our hipster fans in LA…. no need to get upset! Kristen doesn’t when we call her sour puss and you shouldn’t either! Hugs

      • Let me know when you want to make fun of the Pacific NorthWest. I’ve got lots of material for you…..

        • perfect!

      • I live in Nashville…this ENTIRE town is a stereotype. I’m a rarity here because I actually was born and raised here. And guess what UC…we really do eat MoonPies…among other delightfully disgusting delicacies :)
        I saw a guy with a mullett just this morning on his way to work (or to sell Plasma…can’t be sure) He was wearing a wife beater. True Story.

        • i have never had a moonpie.. am i really missing out?

          i love that this post has become about rednecks & football teams instead of what it was meant to be..just a lil daily sarcasm on how this is not the actual new moon premiere but is a charity event!

          • Marshmallowy goodness surrounded by layers of cake-like substance and covered in chocolate (or other various flavors!)?? Yes, you must try one! I can totes hook a sista up.

          • ps i LOVE moonpies and i dont live in the south…

            xo
            mooniePIE

          • Guess what my BFF brought me tonight?? That’s right, Moon Pies!!!!

          • Yes you are missing out. Marshmellow smooshed between cake drizzled in chocolate…its every girl on her period’s dream food! Scratch that…it’s just dream food.

        • Girl, I’m rarity just like you! Born and raised!! Represent!!

          • A Real for Real Nashvillian??? Not one of those Imports who came here to be a star????? Wow…we should get together for cocktails!

          • I know, right??

        • we have a tendency to get side tracked…we’re a little crazy down here. It’s from the heat. Sorry.

          • It’s more the humidity.

      • THE SOUTH HAS IT’S PERKS……CAN’T DEAL WITH IT? THE STFU AND WAIT TO SEE NEW MOON IN THEATERS. AS FOR ME I WILL BE IN KNOXVILLE!

    • Dude-for reals? No need to get all butt hurt. I am a proud Tennessean and will attest to everything on that list being true somewhere round these here parts. No one said everyone here is that way. Now where did I put my Moon Pie? Mmmmm.

      • send me one when you find it!

      • I must be living under a rock. “butt hurt?” That’s the funniest thing I’ve ever heard but I have the feeling I should have heard it before now. Did you make that up? BTW, SHM, I LOVE your screenname. Best one on here. been wanting to say that for a while.

        • I totally agree about the screen name, I’m so jealous I didn’t think of it!

        • Thanks!! My favorite line of the commentary! :)

          Butt hurt-check out urban dictionary. Gotta give props to the hubs for that one. He uses it all the time! Here is the first defination listed:

          some one who doesnt know how to take a joke, and they take the joke like they just took it to the ass
          “hey its just a joke, dont get all butt hurt”

    • I have to say that yes, there are those stereotypes here, but I don’t care where you are, there are rednecks all over the country. This is all meant in good fun, people…but I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else than here in Knoxville and I wouldn’t want to raise my kids anywhere else either. GO VOLS!

      • so true. i also went to school in indiana and i LOVE those rednecks. they were amazing!

    • I’ve never known UC or Moon or anyone else on this site to be a jerk, which is why I hang out here.

      I live in the south too (Virginia), and I know from experience that nary a day goes by that I don’t see one of the following: “Mullets, Wife Beaters, Bluegrass, RC Colas and Moon Pies, Lee Press-On Nails, Fanny Packs, and Chevy Pick-up Trucks with gun racks and rebel flag bumper stickers”. Especially the rebel flag bumper stickers. My God, the south must have gotten a bulk discount on those babies.

      It only hurts when it’s true.

      • haha… i think they carry them at costco?

    • I’m from the south. And I AM the stereotype. Proudly.

    • Someone has their panties in a wad.

    • Are you more hurt due to the stereotypes of the south or the stereotypes of Robsten fans? Cause I heard both are crazy rednecks. Just sayin ;-) I kid, I kid. take a chill pill, Knoxville is no New York or LA. To have a movie premier there, especially a huge movie, like New Moon, is so unlikely – its laughable. UC and MOON are equal opportunity bashers. All crazy fans are fair game.

      Love,
      This White trash Yankee, Brooke.

      • equal opportunity bachers! amen! just look at the pictures from the different events we’ve gone to in OUR OWN cities! we defs didnt cut them any slack

    • Are you joking?!?! Have you SEEN what represents us on the news? It’s some redneck asshole talking about a tornader that dun went thru his trailer park and he yelled to Nadine to git DOWN and that he loved her with all his life! Right before that tornader, that sounded like a frake train(no, NOT a ‘freight” train, a FRAKE train) came though and Whispering Pines Park didn’t make it…but his dog Buck did!

      We actually have WEEKS devoted to motorcycles. And during bike week women ride around on the back of said bikes looking like sausages crammed into bikinis that wouldn’t fit my left KNEE muchless their triple F boob.

      Wal-Mart ORIGINATED in the South! That alone is like more comedic material than anything I can think of.

      And man, let’s not forget some of the gems the South has elected to hold govt. seats! Strom Thurmond, who I swear had slaves at some point in his life. George W. Bush ring a bell? Al Gore, the inventor of the Internet. Shall I go on?

      I’m Southern through and through. I wouldn’t want to BE anything else. I love my cut off’s, my cowboy boots, my Sweet Tea, my fried chicken…but I completely embrace that while I might have class, not every person in the South does. If you’d like I can make fun of the Southern “Belles” who put monogrammed stickers on their CARS, drink white wine spritzers because Heaven FORBID they drink BEER! (Unless it’s microbrewed, that won’t make them choke on their string of pearls.)……..

      See, lots of people to make fun of…so little time.

      • i heart you. i give this two thumbs up

        • OMG!!!! ….tornader! That’s FRAKEN beautiful!

      • a spritzer! im gonna bring those back!

        • If it were in any way possible for me as a Yankee to drink wine spritzers, I totally would. Guess it’s back to Yeunglings…

        • Make sure it’s in a mongrammed tumbler..it’s the only way!

          • Oh Lord, I got monogrammed tumblers as a wedding gift. They were lucite and had our married monogram in script on them. I couldn’t even re-gift! Before anyone asks, no, I did not register for them.

      • @Pink Fluff, that was hysterical! I’m still giggling about putting a bikinis on knees…Frake train. lol.

      • And amen.

        I’m a southern belle. But I’ve never lowered myself to drink a white wine spritzer. Please give me beer. In a bottle. Cause I’m ultra classy like that.

        I give you two thumbs up, too. So that makes 4 thumbs up. You win.

    • robstenfan – it’s meant to be a joke, thats what a stereotype is, something so over the top about a place.

      i helped uc come up with the la stereotypes cause it’s funny!

      hope you understand it’s not a dig!

  10. Well, as a self respecting southerner, I am TOTALLY making the 2 hour drive for this. I’m driving my jacked up F-250 with my bumper stickers that say “Stupid Shiny Volvo Owner” and “Watch out! I drive like a Cullen.” I’ll also be wearing my rebel flag string bikini….but everyone will just think it’s a hot fashion choice until I turn AROUND….and they see “Team Edward” bedazzled on my ASS! It will be the new PattinsonPants! Then I’ll introduce Rob to Firefly and we can discuss how the South will rise again. And again. And again.

    • YES. … the bikini! LOVE IT

    • Every good Southern girl has a Bedazzler!! It’s the best way to class up some denim.

      • I have a bedazzler. In my defense, it was a gift….

    • Hell to the Yeah!

    • Make me a matching bikini, and we can bring it home with a Twihards vs WTV mud wrestle match.

      • Of course! I won’t be greedy like PattinPants. I’ll make merch for all to buy.

        But you stop by Wally World and buy one of those plastic kiddie pools for the wrasslin’!

        • amazing idea!

        • Done! Oh, and don’t forget to bedazzle my a**, (that’s what she said!)
          Oh NO…ya, I said it!

      • PROSELYTE,
        Seriously, did you just give up on Twitter? Where have you been woman? I’ve been in withdrawl. You tease by being all active on it for a week. I then fall in love with you and then you just *poof* and disapear. Get your As back in action!

        • Brooke! Girl, the fanfic is eating me alive! (” Psst, Hey Rob! Did you see what I did there…*snicker*) What’s with the live bare tatas chat going on? I’ve heard rumours….. and I’m not flashing these fine A specimens to just anyone. Maybe for you, but that’s where I draw the line! ;)

          • So far today I cannot recall speaking of any real life bare tatas, perhaps maybe an Areola here or there. Not mine of course. Fan fic, huh? Which one are you reading? Better yet, come chat on twatter. All the cool people are doing it.

          • You are sucking me back into the vacuum that is Twitter?!
            As it stands I barely have a life! Fine, fine….how do you all manage it?

            The latest is ‘I Love LA’, I know…a little late on the bandwagon. And I’ve got about twenty more on alert.

            I should be on around approx. 9pm est. if all goes well.

    • Redneck Rob has a Bedazzler.

      • Maybe he’ll let me borrow it for the premier.

      • OMG thats SOOO redneck rob! i LOVE IT!! WIN

      • Redneck Rob. I just had visions of My Name is Earl, Natty Light and beanie weenies….sittin’ on his AstroTurf covered porch bedazzling his Wranglers.

        I blame it on the copious amounts of sugar I’ve consumed today.

    • Um, hi. I love you. No, really. I seriously love you. The rebel flag bikini is one thing, but repeating our southern motto is what makes me dig you.

      Yes, the south will rise again and again. In more ways than one. With Rob.
      Ahem.

      • I giggled to myself as I typed that. It was too easy.

        I enjoy making fun of the South. And I can. Cause’ I live here.

        I also may or may NOT have had a collection of Absolut Vodka shirts in high school…one of which was a rebel flag vodka bottle with “The South will rise again” written on it. ;o)

        • i heart this

    • OMG . . .I just laughed so hard I choked at the bedazzling.

      When we’re in line together, I’m getting pictures of that!

  11. I just want to ay, I love UT, except I don’t know what it is, enless its Unive of Ten or Univ of Tex. Anyhow, NICE post. Classice.

    PS Bloody Mary’s with Bacon infused Vodka is the perfect hangover cure, do eff it.

    • i should EFF the drink? i’m confused.

      i thinK UT is the univ. of tenn.. i think…

      • I was confused when you said said not to say you loved UT.. I didn’t know why Utah got brought into the mix. but now I get it.. I’m a fast one!

        • haha.. if i dind’t go to school in TN i wouldn’t have known either!

    • Bacon infused Vodka eh? Is that made by the same company as Cuccumber Vodka? lol

  12. I just want to ay, I love UT, except I don’t know what it is, enless its Unive of Ten or Univ of Tex. Anyhow, NICE post. Classic.

    PS Bloody Mary’s with Bacon infused Vodka is the perfect hangover cure, do eff it.

  13. I just heard! Woot, woot! I’m from Knoxville!!

  14. Um, if it’s UT as in Univ of Texas, then I <3 EastFriend that much more! Cause I hate 'em too!

    Oh wait, we were talking about Twilight, right? How did this turn into a college football talk? Oh well, Twilight and football sounds like a win-win to me. As long as it's full-on tackle and I am NOT on the same team as Emmett or Edward or Jasper or Carlisle. I guess that makes it guys vs. girls… Woot woot!

  15. yeah… so being from a square state those stereotypes can apply to so many other places then just the south :) but again, I’ve guess i’ve become more of an LA hipster wearing my plaid pearl snap shirt to work today and actually got my minx nails done in WeHo last night… i don’t drive a prius but that’s only because i drive a dif type of hybrid… wow, either i conform really easy to trends or give into peer pressure waaaay to easy…

    PS if UT is the state then I am gonna have to say i luv it… i don’t live there for a reason but thats where the fam is so i have to love it :)

    • LOVE it.. i never heard of minx until moon told me last night! i like your conformity!

    • shiz i just looked down and noticed:

      – flannel pearl snap shirt
      – minx nails
      – swoopy bangs
      – going to eat vegan for lunch

      I AM THE LA STEREOTYPE!!!

      • Why are you wearing FLANNEL?

        And what are Minx nails?

      • Mmmmmm…vegan food!

      • realized that I attempted tofu for lunch sheesh… that i couldn’t do! ha!

  16. Tickets don’t go on sale until September, and it will be before Nov. 20th…the exact date will be confirmed in the next 30-60 days…can’t wait, I live about 30 minutes away, I’m so there!

    • just as a reminder.. it’s not the New Moon premiere… that’s kinda the point of the post:)
      from what my ‘insider’ tells me.. the tickets will be thousands of dollars & only a limited # will be available- and it’ll be offered first to the ppl involved with the charity!

      • Actually they have these ‘premieres’ every year and no they are not thousands of dollars..I went to the Dukes of hazzard premiere and i paid $125…which is what I have been told that the New Moon tix will be as well. And yes, they do have sponsorship packages that do cost more but usually just hospitals, etc buy those…

        • i hope this girl that told me that (she’s on the board of the charity or something?) is wrong then! it would be awesome if you could go!

          • All I know is that the same people do it every year…and since Regal cinemas are based out of K-town that’s where the ‘fundraiser/premiere’ is held. And every year the tix are between $150-200. They do it to more or less say ‘thanks’, but they also know that most Knoxvillians couldn’t afford thousand dollar tickets to something like that….

          • There have been several of these premieres here:
            Dukes of Hazzard
            Talladega Nights
            Good Luck Chuck
            Hannah Montana

  17. oh lordy! I love it. As a born and raised Midwest nebraska girl, I can say for a fact that everyone gets stereotyped and I must say, all my corn shuckin’, overall wearin’, john deere drivin’ friends think its hilarious. Especially when the local sheriff gets in the mix. Its like Mayberry around here! /sarcasm

    Nebraska gets stereotyped all the time. I actually had someone at the Denver airport ask me how my families growing season was and if this was my first trip in an airplane. I was 23. No it was not, and there are 400,000 people in Omaha, and we aren’t all farmers. WE HAVE A SEPHORA PEOPLE! LOL!

    So chill! Its all LOVE here, no jerks allowed! :)

    • WE HAVE A SEPHORA! hahahaha i love you

  18. hey, do you know the date of New Moon european premiere?
    if you do please let me know.

  19. I am a born and raised east tennessian and i am mighty proud of it.I just had to throw that in.lol.And yes all those sterotypes are here wheather people like it or not.Anyways back to New Moon.My friend is the manager at the pennicle and he said that the premier is suppose to be on the 18th of nov and tickets were gonna be 75 bucks.Wheather theres any truth to that or not i’ve got no clue but it doesnt matter.Im gonna do what i can to go.You can’t miss the chance to go.Tickets wont go on sale before september and they should know who all is gonna be “involved” by then.Im super excited though.

  20. Well I was born in Chicago and raised there till i was about 10 or so…so alot of this southerner stuff…well i’m not sure what to make of it…I lived in Texas for a greater half of my life but since I’ve always lived in a big city I dunnoabout moonpies…what I do know is that I occasionally get to see the ‘Mullets/confederate flag tatts/and other such stuff’ when I go to six flags every summer…and wife beaters are as much ‘hip hop’ as they are rednecks!! LOL What I do know as an ‘honorary Texan’ if you can call me that…is that I LOVE Dr Pepper/Big Red soda….and I absolutely LOVE UT….HOOK EM’ HORNS!!!! :D ( and I think I got totally off topic…oh well)

  21. I love the new thumbs up/thumbs down thing!!!

    …they are new, right??

    • yes! i discovered them today!

  22. OK…So I knew this wasn’t THE movie premiere but I was fangirl happy when they annnounced it because I live only roughly 90 miles from Knoxville and the idea that I could drive there and see the movie EARLY made me dance with glee…I didn’t even care who showed up for the premiere as long as I got to see the movie EARLY…and I’m totally camping out too…can I borrow someone’s Pattinson pants? My camping gear will also consist of my Hot Topic Edward blanket, pillowcase cover, copies of New Moon for Solomon to sign, Twilight Sweetheart candies (for sustenance), and some Coke Classic. (Off Topic when I went home to visit my parents a couple of weeks ago I found a pair of denim overalls that I had AIRBRUSHED with New Kids on the Block faces and stuff all over them and I nearly died laughing..I had totally forgotten about them)

    It’s also an awesome charity that the money goes to and I hope they raise a ton of moola.

    I’m a southerner through and through as well and I just try to shake off the stereotype stuff by saying “They ain’t talkin bout me”. Sometimes you gotta chill and laugh at yourself. Rob taught us that right?

    • now.. would you go even if only Solomon were to show up? cuz if so.. THAT is commitment (also “That’s Normal”)

      • Heck yes I’d go even if the only person to show up was the guy who cleaned the toilets in the cast’s trailers..and I’d get him to sign my copy of New Moon…OK, I’m being totally facecious here but I’d go whether anyone was coming or not since it means I get to see the movie early…THAT’S NORMAL…

  23. All I have to say is “Good Ole Rocky Top (whoo!) Rocky Top Tennessee!” GO VOLS!

    Now that I have that out of my system….I really hope this event happens. I would love to go!! Bring on the tents, coolers, lawn chairs, music….wait are we having a tailgate?

  24. RC colas and moonpies! LOL! Right on!

  25. In defense of Knoxville, and speaking as someone who grew up there…

    Knoxville is not a redneck city. It doesn’t feel southern and none of my friends growing up had southern accents. In fact, when I went to college elsewhere everyone was surprised that I didn’t sound like I was a southerner. My friends who visited my hometown said it was nothing like they expected. Those stereotypes may fit for other places in the south as well as more rural areas surrounding Knoxville, but Knoxville itself is an exception.

    That said… I’m pumped that New Moon is going to be playing early in Knoxville! (Actually the pinnacle is in Farragut, not Knoxville, but close enough) I’ve been to that theater many many times and I know exactly when I’ll be coming home from college for a visit…. *insert excited fangirl dance*

  26. Yeah, yeah, yeah, Tennesee’s Redneck, blah blah blah. Maybe do some research, most of the people who live in knoxville, are in fact, not redneck. Granted they’ll be tons from other areas. But there’s actually quite a few retired rocket scientists who live in this area, no exageration, no joke. Most of the “Manhattan Project” took place in Oak Ridge, which is 20 minutes away. Not to mention the fact the the closest high school to the theatre where the Quote “Premiere” unquote is going to be, is one of the top high schools in the country. Yeah sounds Podunk, down home to me.

  27. I think if all of the idiots commenting on how redneck all of us in Tennessee are you can all keep your A**es in your state because we don’t want you here. But I think it’s funny how all of you that come here don’t want to LEAVE!!!! GO VOLS!!!!!! and by the way we bleed orange.

  28. I AM EXTREMELY OFFENDED!!!!! you are talking about teneseans in an awful way! i just happen to live 10 min. away from that theatre & I can tell you that nobody has mullets or gun racks or those stupid bumper stickers or any of that crap you’re preaching about!

  29. I didn’t read all of the comments for lack of enthusiasm, so I apologize in advance if any of my statements are repeats. Basically, I’m from south of Nashville, but I attend school in Knoxville. I’m not really offended by the slants, they do somewhat apply in the smaller towns of TN. Though, I wouldn’t really know, I grew up in the “O.C.” of tennessee, williamson county, the tenth richest county in the country (or THE richest if you include cost of living). So basically no one south of Nashville is actually from Nashville anyway. I think someone else mentioned this, my being born in Nashville and now living there are rarities.

    But anyway, very off subject. My main reason for posting was to say that the reason they are having an early screening for charity in Knoxville is it is the location of Regal Cinemas headquarters, and they do something like this (not quite to this scale), every year apparently.

  30. And just for the record… everyone that got confused over what “UT” might be needs to improve on their “context clue” reasoning skills.

    Let’s see… the title of this article is “New Moon premiering in Knoxville, TN”.. TN… hmmmm…. Oh wait, now they are talking about UT? UT? Utah? University of Texas? Oh WAIT *smacks forehead” They MUST mean the university that is in the state that the whole article is talking about!! How convenient!

  31. Okay, so yeah, I can feel the jealousy seething through your post, Unintended. Yes, I’m from Knoxville, and yes, I am excited for the event. Of course we all know that it’s not the premiere-premiere, but when we’re screening the movie a week before everyone else in the States with Kellan Lutz and Peter Facinelli, I’m sure rereading all of your ramblings will help you through that. :D

    And as for people liking UT…well, I actually am a student there and even the football players goof on the team in class. But hey, at least our basketball teams kick ass.

    This last paragraph is just me kindly flicking on the light switch in your head. It has nothing to do with New Moon, so skip if you like. :)

    I cannot leave you without some small “Hey! That’s my city you’re talking about!” defense. As people stated before, the city itself is not, as you say, “redneck”. In fact, if you drive 20 miles in any direction from a major city, then you’re going to find the same mullet-cladding, Paps drinking, kings of the road that you would anywhere in the US. That’s just how it is. And not that it’s bad – I mean, who are you to judge how other people live their lives. I’m sure you call yourself a Democrat or Liberal or whatever the hell else you can think of to show that your a Socialist (…*snicker*), and you probably pride yourself on equality for everyone, yet you have the nerve to post things in a derogatory manner about people who are different from you. I bet if the event was in San Fran, you wouldn’t start slaying the gays.

  32. I think you people need to relax a little bit. Show me the person who truly has no idea about these stereotypes and I’ll show you a liar.

    In the end, we all make our jokes and there’s no reason for us to all get so out of control about it. I’m a southern girl but I can talk all about how crazy hick this place can be sometimes.

    Chill out people, seriously. And if you want to talk about something productive, maybe we should talk about the charity that our money will be donated to.

    Isn’t that more important then who’s football team is better?

  33. Wow- are you serious? Are you people seriously that jealous that somewhere like Knoxville is getting the premiere and your afraid you won’t be able to buy the tickets to get here? Ha, well guess what you will be having to make two trips to get here because regal just stated that you have to buy the tickets in person not online nor in mail to be able to recieve them and they go onsale in September. Knoxville has the largest theatre in the southeast. Regal Entertainment group is the largest theatre chain in the US. and their headquaters is in Knoxville, they built this theatre with premieres intended. We have also had premieres such as Good Luck Chuck and Dukes of Hazzard, so I think that we are well equipped. Oh and all you sports fans Neyland Stadium is in the top 3 of the biggest stadiums in the US, I know that Georgias nor Penn State can hold 112,000 fans, so even though you might be proud of your teams. you can’t really be equipped to hold that many people, right? So don’t be mad that your broke asses can’t afford anything but the ecomony tickets like the NY’s La Guardia, or LA’s Oakland airport because it might be a little more expensive to fly to Knoxville. I think its great Knoxville is getting this premiere, and it seems just like sour grapes to me. Oh and btw, Knoxville is the only place in the US that the premiere is going to be before the movie release November 20th. So I do think that we will be getting all of the stars aned not some stupid wolf. So unless you want to fly to Italy, to see the premiere (which is the same day that is premiering in Knoxville November 18th) I suggest that you get over it, suck it up and realize that your sad little towns aren’t as cool as ours and leave it alone. Because we evidently done something right otherwise summit wouldn’t let us have it here!

  34. knoxville is home to quentin tarantino and johnny knoxville

  35. Twilight fans – please, please stay away from Knoxville. I live near the Pinnacle, and I really do not want to have to fight through the teenage girls to get to work for a week. Dear God, what are they thinking. Give me mullets and pick-up trucks and Natural Ice any day over screaming Twilight girls.

  36. Although I’m a Nashville girl now, I grew up in Knoxville and I have an apartment 5 minutes from the Pinnacle Theatre. (I go back and forth for work and a decent airport). And yes, there are many here who live up to the stereotypes, but for the most part, we are normal, working class peeps.

    Knowing of the past premieres held at Pinnacle, I wouldn’t be surprised if there was a full-on, all star premiere. Either way, I’ll be using every contact I have for a press pass. Being a photographer has it’s privileges!

    And UC or Moon–if you need a place to crash, lemme know!

    BTW–tix are booked for NYC at the end of the month. I better get a decent pic of Rob with all this traveling or I’ll be back in LA again soon.

  37. alright , DON’T TALK SHIT ABOUT THE SOUTH ITS GOING TO BE THE NEW CALIFORNIA IN 10 YRS I HATE TO TELL YOU ALOT OF GOOD PEOPLE CAME FROM HERE THINK ABOUT LETS JUST SAY YOU WOULDN’T HAVE ALOT OF THE CELEBRITIES WE HAVE TODAY LIKE REESE WITHERSPOON , LAURA DERN , BRAD RENFRO (MY BEST FRIEND), SANDRA BULLOCK, JULIA ROBERTS , JOHNNY DEPP , JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE , LANCE BASS , AND THE LIST GOES ON AND ON , SO , FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO THINK THAT THIS IS THE REDNECK RIVIERA CAN KISS MY REBEL ASS ! AND THOSE OF YOU WHO DON’T LIKE THE VOLS THATS YOUR DEAL OKAY . BUT, MY BLOOD RUNS ORANGE FOR THEM AND MY BLOOD RUNS MAROON AND WHITE FOR THE FULTON FALCONS . I DO THINK THAT KNOXVILLE CAN HANDLE SCREAMING GIRLS AND THEM GOING CRAZY THINK ABOUT IT THIS WAY WE HAVE HAD SO MANY BOYBANDS AND ROCK BANDS AND RAP GROUPS IN THIS FUCKING TOWN I THINK THAT WE CAN DEAL WITH A FEW DAMN TEENIE BOPPERS OKAY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OKAY SO , WHO GIVES A DAMN WHAT SOMEONE HAS TO SAY FROM DAMN NORTH AND WHEN COMES TO A PERSON FROM TENNESSEE TALKING SMACK ABOUT HER HERITAGE THAT IS JUST FUCKED UP .

  38. LEIGH ANN I GOT A BETTER SONG FOR THOSE YANKEES WHO HATE THE SOUTH , LISTEN TO THE SONG IF THE SOUTH WOULD OF WON BY HANK WILLIAMS JR. OR MIND YOUR OWN BUISNESS . BUT, THATS FUNNY NOONE IN THIS WORLD KNOWS HOW TO MIND THEIR OWN DAMN BUISNESS ANYMORE , AS THE OLD SAYING GOES OPPINONS ARE LIKE ASSHOLES AND EVERYBODYS GOT ONE . BUT, YEAH ANYWAY I THINK IT IS FUNNY THAT PEOPLE TALKING ABOUT UTK AND THE CRAZY THING ABOUT IT THE ONLY DAMN REASON THESE PEOPLE ARE PISSED OFF IS BECAUSE EITHER DON’T WANT TRAFFIC ORE THEY ARE JEALOUS THAT WE ARE GETTING THE PREMEIRE AND THEY ARE NOT GETTING SO I AM SORRY FOR THE PEOPLE WHO ARE JEALOUS OF US (MEANING THE SOUTH) BUT, THINK ABOUT ALL THE GREAT MOVIES MADE IN THE SOUTH AND ABOUT THE SOUTH .

  39. Hey EastGirl…you’ve obviously never been to Knoxville. I’m not even from TN, I’m from Atlanta, but I’ve been to Knoxville many times. You pretty much described most southern cities IN THE 80s!!!!!! So Knoxville will see New Moon a couple of days before you…jealous much? It’s for charity for gods sake. Get over it.

    P.S. Do they even sell Lee Press On Nails anymore?

    • haha…. calm down T-rex. EastFriend was in Knoxville the day before she gave me those descriptions. she lives less than an hour away!

  40. Obviously, you have not had the opportunity to experience the south. Who wouldn’t want to visit a place where people are actually real. I think the Rob and Kristen both would appreciate a little southern hospitality. I have had the opportunity to visit both LA and NYC, and I will let you know first hand, Knoxville, TN would be a breath of fresh air for the overly harrassed actors. Make fun all you want, but the fact is, Tennessee is a state with strong beliefs and reason. Don’t get me wrong, I am the biggest RPatz fan out there, but he is a person, and he does deserve respect. It is his job to make movies and he is good at it. He has the ability to captivate people, but he doesn’t deserve the obnoxious stalkers and people who think they are above a city were a person’s life is truely taken to heart.

  41. so r they comin to knoxs

  42. Whoever doesn’t live in Tennessee and expects rednecks and morons, well…you may see some. The majority of young people that live here, like myself, are just like the rest of the “normal” people. We talk normal, dress normal, and have educated opinions. Just don’t be close-minded and judgmental about our area. It wouldn’t hurt us if it were true, but it isn’t so it’s irritating being looked at like we are when it’s our parents fault. They’re the hicks, not us. lol See you guys, or should I say girls (am looking forward to all the women, woot!) at the premiere.

  43. I know I’m wicked late on this but I had to comment. A: The rednecks posting replies need to learn how to take a joke. Stereotypes are fun to play with…that’s why people do it. 2: Most of the stuff said is right!! I live 2 hours away (near Bristol Speedway no less), so I’m no stranger to rednecks and their wily ways. I’ve seen more mullets since moving here than I’d ever seen in my whole life. People put them on their children. How is that even fair?!?!?

    Anyhoo…I’m wishing that there would be an actual premier so that I can finally meet my future baby daddy (the Pattz) and we can get down to the baby makin (or even just practicing)…but we’ll see.

    • haha.. THANKS PinkDolphin:) we’re happy when people who ‘get it’ well, get it
      mwah!

  44. Hey everyone! First off I’m from Tennessee and went to UT. And before you start I could careless what was said about Knoxville because to be honest, it’s really not that big a damn deal. My best friend works for the Ad agency working on this so here’s what I’ve got. The Regal theater in Knox is the biggest in the country…that explains the choice. I have been to several of the premieres there and typically you go and buy tix, no big deal. But they are expecting the New Moon uproar so this is the solution I’ve been told. Sometime between Sept. and Oct. they are going to have a lottery which can only be entered by going to the theater in Knoxville. After that the drawing will then require another trip to the theater to pay for and pick up your (2) tickets. Prices are expected to be between $150-$200. The cast list is supposed to be released in mid/late Oct. Camping out is going to be useless because from my past experience the cops barricade of the entire area around the theater. It’s located in a secluded suburb outdoor mall area. They block it off for about a half mile in all directions…not just the parking lot. You’ll be able to get up to the theater and stores but they won’t let people stay….especially overnight. There has to be a ticket presented at the gate for each person entering the day of the show.

    **This may have changed or may change but this is the information I have been given from my friends in Knox, the theater, and the Advertising agency.**

    Hope this has been helpful!

  45. Late to the party here, but have to comment……
    I have lived in Knoxville for the past 12 years. Moved here from VA. Trust me there are redneck stereotypes all over the U.S. I have relatives that live in a shall remain nameless northern city (born & raised in the north) and I swear, they act more redneck than some southerners do at times!!
    I for one am very excited about the premiere and have high hopes to stalk…..uhhh… see any of the actors that attend. ***please God let it be Robert!!!**** I am shamelessly using my 14 y/o daughter as a ruse to try to attend the premiere.

    p.s. UC, my 18 y/o son is a HUGH Penn State fan

    p.s.s. Every Southern girl knows that “Bless your heart” really means go screw yourself!! ;-) (just wanted to throw that out there…. Northerners, feel free to use that phrase and smile because you know what you really mean!!)

  46. Well its a funny ass thing they just announced Bella AND Jacob is going to be here , so HA you dumbass! Us here Tennessee Rednecks making a yank jealous??? I believe THATS the real issue here. Plus, as a matter of FACT, UT was a great team for a long time. So what if they havent done so great the last few years. I think you should maybe study up on Tennessee a little better, before you start criticizing. Instead of sitting in ur mommys livingroom in your tidy whiteys watching reruns of Green Acres, and Beverly Hillbillies! HA!

    • i wish someone in TN would invent ‘grammar-check’ … it could be just like spell-check……THEN I’d really be convinced that TN has no rednecks….

  47. I GUESS YOU ARE EATING YOUR WORDS NOW!!! NOV. 17TH IS THE DAY OF THE PREMIERE & KRISTEN AND TAYLOR WILL BE THERE.
    BTW I LIVE IN KNOXVILLE AND LOVE IT. I WAS BORN IN CHICAGO AND MY FAMILY IS CANADIAN. THE REST OF MY FAMILY AND PARENTS ARE FROM MONTREAL QUEBEC. THERE ARE IDIOTS EVERYWHERE AND YOU PROVE IT!!!

    • my words were that it’s lame that ppl think there would be a premiere in knoxville and NOT one in LA…. i know someone who is involved with the knoxville premiere… I always knew it was happening. so no… i’m not eating my words. there is a premiere in LA.. then one in knoxville…. and i bet you can find some people who use lee press on nails in knoxville too. i would if i lived there.

  48. GO VOLS!!!!!

  49. Funny how folks from the outside hate on Knoxville when they know nothing about it! Knoxville is beautiful. It’s clean, it is affordable and people greet you with a wave and a smile. It is also one of the best sports cities in America and home to Regal Theaters (hence the power in the movie industry).
    Johnny Knoxville and Pat Summitt should kick your unintendedchoice a** for your small minded comments. I know a lot of yanks who came to TN for a visit and ended up making it a home.
    To Leigh Anne, hey hon, sorry about that beat down my Vols put on your Dogs. Rocky Top all day long! If I remember correctly, Emmett is a Gator fan. Oh well, nobody’s perfect.

    • haha.. they need to teach sarcasm in knoxville!

  50. ur a fucking retard cause people from Knoxville aren’t like that and its not those people who are coming Taylor Lautner and Kristen Stewart are the ones that are coming so get ur facts straight and then try to right a little article online!!!

    • i’ll ‘right’ an article… i will

      • You know what “unintendedchoice” Shut the hell up… I mean come on I know that there are some rednecks ok a lot but at least they are nice enough to not make fun of you northern stuck up bitches!!!
