Monday Funnies – A dash of Oregano

Dear Micheal Aragano (AKA Oregano)-

Sometimes I feel really bad for you in this whole third wheel KStew/Rob  scenario. I totally loved you in both Almost Famous and on Will & Grace, you’re such a great young actor. But as much as I feel bad for your sometimes the below comic made me laugh my face off!

Happy Monday Everyone!

A mid-day Sunday post

Dear Kristen & Nikki,

Yes I’m writing two letters today. Yes, I know that’s a miracle, but I need to know: Are you going to the Sage & The Dills show again tonight?

We just got an e-mail from Kari who is the street team leader for Sage & The Dills. Ya know, the band you drug Rob to hear last night in Vancouver?

I sense a cat fight coming on...

I sense a cat fight coming on...

Kari wanted us to tell everyone that Sage & The Dills will be back at the Metropole in Vancouver TONIGHT (as in Sunday 4/19/2009) at 10pm

Kari said this,

Sage-the lead singer-is Nikki Reed’s Best friend and has been in Vancouver with her for the last few weeks. Nikki, Rob, and Kristen were at the show last night and will most likely be there tonight as well.
Sage and The Dills have an official Myspace And an official fan page

There is music of theirs on both pages and they are hoping to get the song “Dawn” included on the New Moon soundtrack!!

How sweet, Nikki.. supporting your best friend! But wait… aren’t you Kristen’s best friend? So wait…. Kristen isn’t your best friend? How does she feel about this? Does that hurt her feelings? Are you guys in a fight? Does whoever wins this fight get Rob for the evening?

So many questions, so little time
UnintendedChoice

PS: We have no idea if anyone from the cast will be there.. apparently 100monkeys also have another show in Vancouver tonight. Don’t shoot the messenger if Rob/Nikki/Kstew don’t show. But ask Nikki & Kristen my questions… kthxbai

Sunday Morning Worship – Song of Solomon (not Trimble)

Come... now is the time to worship... come now is the time to give your heart

Come... now is the time to worship... come now is the time to give your heart

Dear LTT Worshipers-

Please turn your Bibles to Song of Solomon for today’s lesson…

“By night on my bed I sought him whom my soul loveth: I sought him, but I found him not.”
– Song of Solomon 3:1

WTF Kellan… what a tease. Why does it always seem like Kellan KNOWS he’s a good time so he’s nice to the twi-hards and takes pics and signs autographs but then he goes out takes pictures  for mags like this just to remind you what his body looks like and that you’ll never have him.

OOOHHH Kellan… tease indeed.

Happy Sunday, Church dismissed…

Follow your Dreams- Twilight style

Dear kids, teens and grown-ups neglecting their responsibilities who make videos like the one you’re about to see,

Moon & I spend a lot of time perusing YouTube for great content for 2nd-hand embarrassment, fan art, fanmade vids & Saturday Am Delight over at LTR. We are constantly amazed at your creativity. We had a conversation about it last night:

UC: seriously, these kids are talented
Moon: They are! I want them all to realize their dreams and go into movies or tv or whatever. I wish I could tell everyone that
UC: They should follow their dreams

I know that sounds pretty similar to the drunk convos we’ve had about you guys before, but we were sober- promise. And you should- you should REALLY follow your dreams! You guys are better than 1/2 the trailer editors in the business!

After watching this next video, I was SO excited to see Breaking Dawn… and we don’t even know for sure that it’s going to be made into a movie (and if it is, guarentee this short teaser film will be better than the actual movie!)

I loved this video, I really did, but that doesn’t mean I’m not going to share some of the profound thoughts that went through my mind as I watched it.  Think of it as a mini-commentary:

  • I love how I’m feeling the emotion of the wedding…Bella looks beautiful in her dress.. the music is starting to build… and then suddenly, Cedric Diggory shows up!
  • Bella’s boobs are CLEARLY not that big… did a guy make this vid?
  • Isle Emse? Um, hot. You gave us what Stephenie clearly did not.
  • Natalie Portman playing Bella? Well, I don’t like it.. but only because Rob has a crush on her and I’m way jealous
  • LOVE it when Edward rocks a Jesus beard & does a cartwheel
  • Is that Bill Compton from Trublood at the end? It makes sense.. he woulda hung out w/ the Cullens…

Seriously, amazing job. We’re impressed. And I want to hug that little girl who played Renesmee NOW!

Follow your dreams,
UnintendedChoice xo

Twilosophy – Sad enough to quit reading the Twilight Saga?

twilightDear Twilosophy Majors-

I recently had an email conversation with an old friend who has just finished reading Twilight. I was excited (of course! a new convert!) and asked her if she’d finished the entire saga. She told me no, and that she decided to stop at the end of Twilight because it was consuming her thought life, her real life and making her depressed and sad. I was quite taken aback and wasn’t really sure what to say because OF COURSE I had been emotionally affected by the series how could you not be? And isn’t that normal? But that never once made me want to quit, in fact quite the opposite. I HAD to know how it ended. I had to know that even through it all: the drama, the conflict, the separation the October, November, December, January for God’s sake, that Bella and Edward would be together in the end. That they really would make it.

Which got me to thinking… can a book (or any work of art for that matter) be “good” if it doesn’t make you feel something?

Think about your favorite song, your favorite movie, your favorite piece of art… why do you like it? Sure music can be fun to listen to, movies entertaining, and art “pretty” but at the end of the day if it’s emotionally vacant it doesn’t stay with you. The stuff you connect with, the stuff that becomes your favorite speaks to you! I’ve always said what matters most to me about a piece of music are the lyrics. They’re the heart of the song for me because that’s what I remember and what gives me something to relate to. When I’m sad I wanna listen to Joni Mitchell for a reason, when I’m nostalgic for home I listen to Jimmy Eat World for a reason.

It’s the same with the Twilight Saga, it has all those components that we can relate to in our lives: Twilight has that first love jitters, New Moon has the deep dark sadness of losing someone, Eclipse has that feeling of being torn between two things you really care about and finally Breaking Dawn takes us in about every direction. But that’s why we love it! If it was a bland sugar coated fairy tale we wouldn’t all be sitting around here every day shooting the shit. God knows there’s a lot of other stuff to be doing, but because we’ve somehow all been personally touched by the Saga we want to discuss it and find other people like us here who can relate.

Don’t get me wrong I commend my friend for knowing herself enough to stop if something, even a book, was being personally destructive for her… but I also wonder if we don’t have those kinds of reactions to art or life in general what would the world be like? A lot of lukewarm moments, boring taupe walls and Kenny G songs?

Painting this wall red!

PS Stay tuned for the next Twilosophy installment when I break down the rest of my email discussion, involving relationships in and out of the Twi-dom

PPS Read other Twilosophy lectures

What do you think? Too emotional, must quit? Or must go on?

Update: LTT & LTR were mentioned (along w/ some of our other fav blogs) in the Greek version of Glamour mag. Weird? Crazy? Awesome! Whatever.. we love it! LTT/LTR mention in Greek Glamour

This might be a question for your OB/GYN or Stephenie Meyer

Dear Stephenie Meyer-

You should really stop going to Yahoo Answers to get your story lines. I mean where else could you come up with a story about a fetus that drinks its mothers blood and grows at light speed? Not to mention the father is a Vampire who had sex with its human mom!

Kids these days are whacky enough to post personal questions about their girlfriends pregnancy in a public forum not thinking some suburban housewife is trolling the web just looking for an absurd twist for the fourth and final installment of her multimillion dollar, New York Times Best Selling Novels. She must have seen this and went “THAT’S IT!” If only we could have warned this poor dude to call a doctor instead of ask some random people in the interwebs maybe he could have spared us all a little Renseesme and a lot of explaining to Breaking Dawn newbies.

Darn kids.

Fake lesbians are something to talk about

Dear Nikki & Kristen,

People are talking, so I’m here with my bi-weekly fake lesbian joke….. You know I can’t help it. You girls are just easy targets. Don’t get me wrong, I love to hold hands with my girlfriends, and I’m a kisser- I smack one right on the lips anytime I see a friend I love, but there’s just something about you two…I hear them whisper when they see the way you look at each longingly… well, you stare just a little too long.. There’s something about the way you hold hands- it’s a little more intimate than most friends- you stand just a little too close. Sometimes it seems like your knowing glances towards each other are saying,

“Wanna go back to our room and compare notes about Rob while drinking cheap champagne and then pretend to be drunk and “accidentally” make out? Then realize the reason we found no pleasure in Rob was because we’re actually into chicks?”

Have you girls talked about it? Nikki are you acting nervous? Kristen do you feel so foolish to have never noticed? There’s just something about it.. are you thinking about each other every day? Something about you two…. are you dreaming about each other every night? Are you hoping that you both feel the same way? There’s something there…something that just gives us all something to talk about…

Lets give them something to talk about
How about love, love, love, love?

Now that you know, let’s really show it, darlings,

Jackson and the bat… need I say more?

Dear Jackson-

Now that the DVD is out I spent a good 30 minutes this weekend watching and re-watching that bit in the baseball scene where you’re up to bat and you do that cool bat flippy trick (technical term). I even sat there with it in slow mo cause it was totally hot. Then I noticed NReed in the background of your shot trying to do the same thing. And I wanted to yell at her “Stop it BIOTCH, you’re being distracting, this is Jackson’s moment stop ef-ing around!” But she didn’t listen.


(try not to wear this out toooo much)

I don’t know what it is about the scene that makes it so hot… must be something about knowing how to handle a bat…ahem… or maybe it takes me back to those high school days when I would sit in the stands eating sunflower seeds gossiping and crushing hard on the baseball team. And maybe a particular player named Hank who would later come to ask me out and I would tell him I couldn’t go out because it was my birthday! (I’m also dumb). But that is neither here nor there. I was young and stupid, don’t judge! Who knows what it is about that bat scene. But whatever it is… keep doing it Jackson!

Oh and I can’t wait for the Bella birthday scene in New Moon. Bite Kristen… HARD!

You can handle my uh… bat… uh anyday. Yea…

Monday Funnies – Lost in the Meyer

Dear LTT gals and guys-

Monday Funnies were such a hit last week that we’re back again with another AWESOME Lucy Knisley comic!

For those of us who came late to the Twi-world (aka after all the books were released) I think we can all remember vividly the first time we read the saga. At first a bit hesitant (teen vampires?!) but wondering what all the fuss was about and then so engrossed you’re forgeting to eat meals, and then a total addict who’s calling every bookstore within a 5 hr radius on a Sunday night to see who was open and had the next book just so you could get your fix. And just like the last comic we featured last Monday, Lucy nails “getting lost in the Meyer.”

Enjoy and Happy Monday (only 4 days till Friday!)
