Since it’s taking a while for A to go through her thoughts, photos, transcripts and notes from this weekend, we thought we’d post a little daily zen for you. Thus, please to enjoy, (a somewhat blurry) Kellan Lutz and his amazing dimples. (You’re welcome.)


We'd wrestle a grizzly bear for that face!

Fri-Day, Twi-Day!

There’s a new phrase for the Twi-ctionary! Hehe. Anyhoo, A here. Yesterday was the first day of the Atlanta Twi-Con (and boy are my arms tired! Wait…) I’ll do a big wrap up post on Monday, but a few highlights:

1. Peter Facinelli and Billy Burke were adorable. If my dad was that hot, I’d never let him out of the house! Or pray I was adopted. This is getting weird. 

2. Met a girl who follows Kellan Lutz all over the country and has pictures of the two of them together in her purse. As in, IN her purse. The purse is made from the pictures. Intense. Hope she doesn’t mind me hooking up with him tonigh (BURN, Purse Girl!!).

3. Met Joy from Pattinson Online. She’s super fun and was equally confused by the lack of press-related structure at the Convention. Not to mention, she kindly let me use her computer when I somehow managed to fill a 4G memory card with pictures of Billy Burke. The whole thing. Told ya he was hot. (Oh, PS, he totally did the halo gesture, which I did not realize was such a fan favorite, but the reaction from the crowd was Beatles-on-Ed Sullivan-esque!)


Can we get those digits?? No, really. Please?

4. The costumes from the film travel with the convention (though I think they’re re-creations). Edward and Bella Mannequins stand in the exhibit. If you want your picture taken with them, it’ll cost ya $5. Did I mention they’re not real? Yeah.

5. The hosts of the weekend are the cast of the Hillywood Show. They do movie parodies and I have to say, they’re pretty darn good as Bella, Edward, Jasper and Alice. Everytime I see Edward out of the corner of my eye, I do a double take. Plus they’re almost always in character, so it gets a little erie watching them walk through the crowd holding hands and looking all twitterpated. 

6. Today is Kellan Lutz day! Somehow, I have to figure out a way to sleep with him. I mean, ask him important journalistic questions about war, poverty and the paparazzi. Now what would a gal wear for that?

More to come! Check our flickr site for a few quick uploads from Friday! And don’t forget to follow us @AwesomeTM on Twitter!


Peter Facinelli. Hey, friend!

Hey, Twi-hards! Co-Creator A here. I wanted to remind everyone that this weekend, in some crazy Kismet-like turn of events, I will be covering the Atlanta Twi-Con for Sunday Paper. This means I have legitimate press access to all the Twi-abetic fun! I am trying to decide if it’s best to Tweet my experience from my personal Twitter account and risk losing followers who have no interest in what Kellan Lutz is wearing (mmm, Kellan!) or if it’s better to Tweet from the ATM account and risk not exposing Twilight v-card carriers to what is arguably the most exciting pop culture phenomenon since High School Musical 2. (We kid—it’s way better than HSM2, obvs!) Anyhoo, it will probably be from @AwesomeTM, so be sure to log in and follow us so as not to miss any of the action! Also, if there’s anything you guys want me to be sure to shoot or ask (if given the chance), let me know! I’m getting excited!!!

Our Interview with a Vampire

Posted in Cullen Cresting, New Moon, Twilight with tags , , , , , , , , , , on July 6, 2009 by awesometeenmag

For those of you who’ve been visiting family in Denali this holiday season, you might have missed our excitement as Co-Creator A got the chance to interview Peter Facinelli. The interview ran this weekend in Atlanta’s Sunday Paper, and you can see the digital version here. (Click on it a bunch of times to keep it one of the top stories this week!) 

The interview leads up to what could be A’s most exciting weekend ever: Twi-Con! The Twilight Convention starts Friday and will run through Sunday, bringing with it Kellan Lutz, Jackson Rathbone, Ashley Greene, Billy Burke, and our good friend P-Fac. 

We’ll also post the rest of A’s P-Fac conversation transcript this afternoon. And click here to find out what rule he suggested we add to our Twilight Drinking Game!

Now if only we could figure out how to digitize the conversation that she tape recorded and post it…

BTW, in fun news, one of our favorite Twi-sites, Twilight Lexicon, quoted the Sunday Paper article! A was almost more excited about that than anything else. Almost. Afterall, Peter Facinelli called her at home. You can’t really top that. (Now, if Rob called…)


A snapped a pic of the cover mention...hi Rob!

Soooooooo, we don’t know if you heard, but yesterday was kind of a big deal for Co-Creator A. Sure, sure, it started like any other day, meeting M for java and “work” at the coffee shop. Ignoring photos from the “Remember Me” set (we just can’t get behind the hype for that one). You know…the usual. Then, the phone rang and the voice on the other line said A might have a shot at a celebrity interview before her official coverage of the Twilight Convention in Atlanta next week (and by official we mean for an actual publication. And us. Natch.) The voice on the other end said she wasn’t sure who…Peter someone. The entire neighborhood probably heard A’s response: “FACINELLI?????!!!!!”

When going through the possibilities for interviews, he’d been the last we thought to agree. Afterall, an independent newspaper with a circulation of 80k certainly doesn’t compare to People Magazine or US Weekly. We figured we’d get that creepy Solomon Trimble who seems to think he played Sam Uley. Silly boy. 

But no, it was confirmed. It was to be Peter Facinelli! Carlisle Cullen himself would be calling A at home for a chat! The shakes set in. As did the heart palpitations. And the yelling (sorry, fellow coffee drinkers).

Knowing a celebrity is going to call your house, but not knowing at what time, is a nerve-jarring thing. Not wanting to answer a call “Carlisle, is that you??” and startle a telemarketer, A alerted everyone she knew NOT to call her land line for the duration of the afternoon. Then, at exactly 4:04 EST the call came in. His agent was on the line asking if he could patch A through to “Peter.” Yeah, no big.

(I wouldn’t admit this to many, what with being a seasoned journalist and all, but while his agent was figuring out just how to patch P-Fac in, I totally grabbed a bottle of vodka and took a giant swig. I was hoping it would cure my shakes.)

We will post the transcript of the conversation as soon as we know what the paper is using and what we can run. In the meantime, we’re going to revolutionize the Internet by posting THE SAME THING ON TWO SITES! Intrigued? Well you should be. You see, the one question A knew she would have to ask P-Fac was for a little help on our patented ATM Twilight Drinking Game. And he was very willing to help. Stay tuned…
