Love Letter to Letters to Twilight

Posted in Rant with tags , , , , , , , on August 17, 2009 by awesometeenmag

Good morning, Twi-hards! It’s been a while since our last post…turns out A isn’t as good at multi-tasking as she might have thought she’d be. Anyhoo, today we received the best motivation ever to be the best Twi-site we can be: our good friends at Letters to Twilight got the ultimate Twi-shout out. In her first post in months, Stephenie Meyer herself called out LTT and thanked UC and Moon for the laughs. Ummm, really? REALLY??? How freaking amazing is that?!!

Seriously. Let’s talk about this. THE Stephenie Meyer. The one who wrote Twilight. The one who dreamt of Edward and Bella and thus gave us all a reason to live and blog! THAT Stephenie Meyer called out LTT!! A was so excited when she read the post that she screamed. Loudly. (Sorry, neighbors!)

Because we at ATWIM wanna be just like LTT when we grow up (blog-wise…age-wise we’re already a wee bit past that possibility), we thought we’d compile a list of shout-outs we’d settle for. Kind of like, if the Queen of England shouted out LTT (as the queen is prone to do), we’d settle for a high-five from Prince Harry. Or even Charles. Ears and all…

1. Melissa Rosenberg, screenwriter, The Twilight Saga movies. She may not have written the concepts, but she does a damn good job of translating them to the big screen. (That “spider monkey” line wasn’t hers, so she remains in our good graces. Cathy Hardwicke on the other hand, well you know how we feel about her). We’re thinking maybe Mel would like to write our names into Breaking Dawn. Maybe some of those random vamps could get new names. We’d be happy with Zafrin-A and Senna-M. Ok that one was a stretch.

2.  Solomon Trimble, the exotic-looking but confused girl who thinks she’s Sam Uley. Ohh, Solomon. We feel your pain. You were namelessly cast in Twilight, decided you must be Sam Uley (though again, it’s never mentioned onscreen), and ran with it. A quick viewing of your IMDB profile shows that you’ve got nothing else on the books right now. Well, how about this: next time you’re out and about promoting your supposed appearance in Twilight or Quileute dance ceremonies or what have you, what say you throw us a mention? It could def increase your 15 minutes. If only on our site.


My sister, Sam.

My sister, Sam.



3. Seth Meyer, webmaster of to Steph. This wouldn’t have to be anything major. We know Seth’s a busy guy, what with updating the site and being the name-spiration for Seth Clearwater. But what about just a little mention? Something to the effect of “those girls from Awesome Twilight Musings need to stop emailing me about mentioning them on this site” would be fine by us. (PS A has a crush on SNL’s Seth Meyers, so if he mistakes this post to be about him, we’d be fine with that.)

4. 100 Monkeys. Though most of the time, we aren’t entirely sure what you’re singing, we like to think that if you threw the words “ATWIM,” “ATM,” “M” or “A” in one of those jumble-y songs of yours, we’d catch it. Just do something so we know to listen for it. Like make a crazy face or wear a crazy hat. Ohhhhh wait…


Dance, Monkey!

Dance, Monkey!

5. Kellan Lutz. Kellan, you know how much A loves you. You must. She talks about it enough. So help a sister out and give her a little name drop. We heard you had a meeting with Summit this weekend. Was it about those racy running photos? Perhaps you should issue a public apology, explaining that the reason you were so, um, visible, was because you were thinking of A. Or had left your boxer briefs on her bedroom floor that morning. Or, if you’d prefer to shout her out in a less public forum, a name-drop in the throes of passion would be fine. As long as she’s in the room to hear it.


Come and get it, A!

Come and get it, A!


I Want My NMtv!

Posted in New Moon with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 27, 2009 by awesometeenmag

By now you’ve all heard the news, dear reader(s): The 2009 Mtv Movie Awards will include the world premiere of footage from New Moon as presented by RPattz, KStew and Tay-La. Let’s just let that fact sink in for a minute. GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!!!! 

Ok, I’m good.

Anyhoo, since the announcement of this freaking fantastic news, I, Co-Creator A, have had trouble sitting still. I honestly had to make myself stop thinking about it for a few days because the anticipation was getting to be too much for me. But now that I’ve calmed down a bit and there are only THREE DAYS standing between me and the footage (I’m having trouble breathing), I’ve channeled my energy into a To Do list that I think all Twi-abetics can seriously benefit from.

1. Possibly the most important: Tweeting while watching TV. Luckily, my typing skills are pretty boss, so I’ve mastered typing without looking at the keys. What I have not mastered, however, is typing while screaming like a 12-year-old at a JoBros concert and wiping the drool off my chin while doing so. I’m going to have to practice that for a few days if I am going to properly Tweet the whole experience for ATM! (Follow us!!) And you know I am!

2. Snacks. Normally, all of my big TV moments are accented by two things—wine and sushi. This brings up a tricky sitch: do I order the sushi ahead of time and let it sit til I get hungry (which won’t happen til way after New Moon footage) or do I order it and pray it doesn’t arrive at the same time as my beloved Edward? So many decisions when it comes to dinner time for the human!

3. The Hills Finale. Seriously, Mtv, did you have to put me on sensory overload that night? I’ll be crying like an idiot after saying goodbye to LC (don’t judge) and then I’ll have to go directly into Twi-hard mode and be elated! Plus how will it affect the Red Carpet, which normally runs the hour before an event? It’s when we get to see the celebs in all their finery, enjoy their witty and often embarrassing banter with reporters and most importantly, it’s always where Rob looks his best! (Though something tells me the bulk of my Red Carpet watching time will be spent throwing things at the TV when KStew is onscreen and screaming for RPattz and Tay-La when they aren’t. At least I’m consistent.) My point here, is that if The Hills finale runs the hour before the awards, then when will Mtv show me my live arrivals?? WHEN WHEN WHEN???

4. Letter campaign. Sure, sure, we love our three leads, but what about the other Twi-lebrities? Will they be in attendance? We can only hope the entire Cullen clan makes a family trip of it and shows up together. (Wouldn’t that be adorable??) To further their exposure, I’ve joined Co-Creator M in a letter writing campaign to replace performer Eminem with Jackson Rathbone’s band, 100 Monkeys. Sorry, Marshall. You’re last decade’s news. 

5. Vocal warm ups. I’m going to have to reserve my voice for the intense amount of screaming I’ll be doing that night (BURN, neighbors!!), so from this point on, I will only communicate via text, IM, Twitter and FB chat. Unless Rob Pattinson calls me. Then I’ll break my own treaty.

The Mtv Movie Awards air Sunday, May 31, at 9pm. Don’t forget to vote for Twilight in all 6 of its categories!
