The New Moon Drinking Game

Posted in F.AN.GS (Fun and Games) with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 3, 2009 by awesometeenmag

*WARNING: THIS GAME CONTAINS NEW MOON SPOILERS. STOP READING NOW IF YOU’VE BEEN LIVING UNDER A ROCK THE LAST THREE WEEKS AND HAVE YET TO SEE THE FILM*

We’ve been blog mum on New Moon for two reasons: 1. we want you guys to make your own decisions and not be swayed by how we at ATWIM feel (it’s the best freaking movie ever!!!…oops, I’ve said to much), and 2. we’ve been so busy seeing it over and over again that there really hasn’t been time to write. (Did I mention how freaking awesome it is?? Seriously. SERIOUSLY! Per-fection.)

However, it has come time to post what we like to tell ourselves is the most anticipated New Moon-related item to hit the net since the debut of that weird girlie Jacob doll: ladies and gentlemen, may we present you…THE NEW MOON DRINKING GAME.

Now, due to the popularity of The Twilight Drinking Game, this one is a little different. Word got out about us and our mad drinking game-making skills, so a few cast members contacted us to help with rules of their own. (Rob and Kristen called, but K just kind of stammered through some long-winded rule and Rob spent the whole phone chat being self-depricating so we had to drop their submissions.) Fortunately, our friends Peter Facinelli, Edi Gathegi and Jamie Campbell Bower were there to lend a hand…and help each and every one of you get good and sloshed. 

First, our rules. I, Co-Creator A, went to see New Moon (for the third time) by myself with notebook in hand to come up with these rules, for you, our loving readers. I’m pretty sure the few other people in the theater at 2PM on a Wednesday thought I was crazy. And I am. CRAZY FOR THE NEW MOON DRINKING GAME!

*NOTE: We cannot be held responsible for anyone who gets in trouble playing or attempting to play the New Moon drinking game. Also, if you’re going to get wasted at the movie theater, be sure to bring a designated driver. We recommend someone responsible like Angela Webber. A Mike Newton type is a little too much of a gamble.*

That said, here’s how the game is played. Add your favorite alcoholic beverage to your reasonably priced (ahem) movie theater soda and keep your cup close at hand. (Once the film is on DVD, the game gets a lot more convenient.) Whenever one of the following things happens, you MUST drink. Note: some variations are designed for hardcore drinking game players only. Feel free to make your own variations to avoid puking like a “marshmallow.”

DRINKING RULES:

1. This is a pre-film rule: drink for every preview of a film about letters that stars Amanda Seyfried. Seriously. You’ll be drunk before the opening credits. (Though there really aren’t opening credits, are there?)

2. Drink whenever someone takes a picture. Bella, Alice, Angela, etc.

3. Ok, now this one could mean you get dragged out of the theater on a stretcher, but give it a shot (no pun intended): drink everytime there’s plaid on screen. This is for every separate piece of plaid. For instance, in the cafeteria, Mike is wearing plaid, but so are a few of the extras in the background. Drink for each. (If you really want to get crazy, drink for the plaid curtains in Bella’s house.)

4. Drink when Edward gets out of the Volvo at school and walks towards Bella looking like something out of a wet dream. (Seriously, no matter how many times I see the movie, I gasp audibly when I see him.)

5. Drink every time Emmett says something so goofy it’s hot. Which is every time he speaks.

6. Drink every time a line from Twilight is repeated. For instance, when Alice says, “it’s time” or when Bella tells Charlie to be careful and he says, ” always am.”

7. Drink every time a line that’s so random, dated or dumb that it rivals “spider monkey” is uttered. ie: When Jake calls Bella “loca” or when Bella asks Emmett not to “hate the truck.” Or when Jess says “homeboy could have been a psycho.” Or when Jake says “age is just a number, baby.” You get the idea.

8. Drink when you get dizzy from the spinning in the scene where Bella’s lying on the forest floor. (Cause you know you do. I actually have to look away. Alcohol should help that.)

9. Drink when you see Sam come to save Bella in wolf form…because he looks like an animatronic Snuffleupagus. Moments later, drink again when Sam, Harry Clearwater and Jake exchange a silent look that rivals those on an episode of The Hills. 

10. Drink for Jessica’s amazing zombie rant. We heart Anna Kendrick. 

11. In the scene where Bella falls off the motorcycle drink two times: once when Jake does his fancy maneuver to get off his own bike and then when he shamelessly removes his shirt. You knew we were gonna say that one, didn’t you?

12. Drink when Mike Newton says “gotta get that pwotein in thew” in his baby talk voice. 

13. Drink for the Burger King product placement in the movie theater scene. 

14. (This is a good one!) Drink every time Bella cock teases Jake and they almost kiss. Such a tease, Bells!

15. Drink whenever the wolf pack makes their weird greeting noise. “Oooohheeeeee!”

16. Drink every time someone other than Bella drives her truck.

17. Drink whenever someone speaks a language that’s not English, but no translation is offered. (ie: Jacob or the Volturi.)

18. Drink during the amazingly funny, awkward and creepy elevator scene in Italy. Genius!

19. Whether you love it or hate it, drink for Alice’s Breaking Dawn premonition. (We love it!)

20. Drink for every Cullen that votes yes. 

Ok, now that you’re good and tipsy, it’s time for the celeb rules. We’ll start with Peter Facinelli (who also kindly offered us a Twilight Drinking Game rule—complete with Rob anticdote). Peter said: “For New Moon, every time you see Carlisle in a scarf, you can drink. That would be basically every scene I’m in.” (Editor’s note: we’re counting the dickie he wears when he’s with the Volturi.) 

Next, Jamie Campbell Bower, who, BTW, thought the game was a fantastic idea. We’re also pretty sure he’d play with us any day of the week. And drink us under the table. His rule was: “Every time Dakota Fanning does something incredibly frightening, which is just about every scene she is in.”

And finally, Edi Gathegi, who took this game very seriously. He even changed his rule five minutes after giving us his initial idea. Here’s how the conversation went down: “If the rule was for my character, you’d be sober the whole time, so how about every time Taylor is shirtless in a frame. Not in a scene, in a frame. So if they cut to Taylor, then cut to Kristen, then cut back to Taylor, drink both times [he’s on screen].” A few minutes later after hearing Jamie’s idea, Edi changed his mind:

Edi: Mine promotes alcoholism, I want to change it. How about every time someone is shirtless? Not in frames, just in scenes. Every time you see pecs.

Jamie: Nipple?

Edi: No, just pecs. Man cleave. And that’s for everyone. Not just Taylor. 

So, ATWIM readers, you heard the man. Drink every time you see man cleavage. And that includes Laurent’s under his blazer. We think Edi would want it that way.

Fri-Day, Twi-Day!

Posted in Cullen Cresting, Small Bites with tags , , , , , , on July 11, 2009 by awesometeenmag

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?

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!

Con Woman, Part 2

Posted in Small Bites with tags , , , , , on July 10, 2009 by awesometeenmag

The day has arrived! It’s the first day of Twi-Con in Atlanta and I have to be honest with you, dear reader(s): I’m a little nervous. I’m starting to question my level of devotion, here. I mean sure, sure, I write a Twilight blog, that should get me some bonus points. And I did freak out over a phone call from Carlisle Cullen last week. So I guess I’m not SO out of my comfort zone. But still. This is going to be a pretty intense weekend and I’m doing it all without Co-Creator M! Gah!

I’ll be checking in at the Con around noon and for the rest of the weekend, I’ll be Twittering as much as I can. Be sure to follow our ATM Twitter account, @AwesomeTM, so you can keep up with all the vampy fun and Twit-pic-ing!

[This is] my life now 😉

P.S. Today is P-Fac’s day in town, so while I don’t think he’ll actually be taking me out for dinner, I’m hoping to say hi. Want me to deliver any messages?

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…)

Peter Facinelli’s Twilight Drinking Game Amendment

Posted in Cullen Cresting, F.AN.GS (Fun and Games), New Moon, Twilight with tags , , , , , , on July 2, 2009 by awesometeenmag

While she was on the phone with Peter Facinelli yesterday, Co-Creator A told him all about the Twilight Drinking Game we created for ATM. (He thought it was great, PS. Duh!) We asked if he’d be willing to give us a Carlisle-related drinking rule for New Moon. (He was, but you’ll have to wait for November for that one, Twi-hards. Ha!) This was his response:

“First, I gotta give you one for Twilight: Everytime I put my hand on Rob’s shoulder. Rob and I would joke about that all the time. In the script it was always like ‘Carlisle comes in, puts his hand on his son’s shoulder.’ So Rob and I would always laugh because I’d be like every time I come in, I’m supposed to put my hand on your shoulder…like that’s a fatherly gesture. And whenever I see Rob now, I put my hand on his shoulder and we laugh.”

Not only did Peter Facinelli give us TWO—count them, TWO—drinking game rules, he gave us an RPattz antecdote!! It was like winning the lottery three times in one day!

PS Co-Creator M obvs isn’t the only one with mad Photoshop skills! Ha!

What’s up, Doc?

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…

AHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!
