Twi-Hardcore

Posted in Rant, Team Edward, Twilight with tags , , , , , , , , on February 10, 2010 by awesometeenmag

So get ready for some seriously shocking information, gang: A has been hanging out with a guy. Yeah. It’s like I have a social life or something!

Anyway, said guy—as is the case with most—doesn’t “get” Twilight. That’s fine. We don’t expect everyone to understand where we’re coming from. The guy is great, we have lots in common, but also lots not in common. (A combo that I think is good, for the record.) For instance, tonight he is taking me to a heavy metal concert. I’m currently listening to Taylor Swift. You see where I’m going with this.

Last night we were at a bar, where again he reiterated his confusion about my interest in all things Twi, claiming it’s for teenage girls (sha!) and that it didn’t make any sense for me to like it as much as I do. A few minutes later, this girl with tats and a black hoodie and skinny jeans (you know, very KStew) came up to talk to him. Evidently her fiance is the lead singer of a local metal band, so they chatted about stuff for a few minutes and I sat there feeling very prissy and out of place in my dress and boots, thinking that this girl must think I’m a total ahole or something. But then, she turned to face me and I saw it. On the bottom of her hoodie….a Twilight pin.

I almost squealed! But composed myself and said, “I like your pin.” To which she responded, “no, wait.” and unzipped her hoodie to reveal AN EDWARD T-SHIRT!!!!

Said guy was more than shocked. He was flumoxed. He was flabbergasted. The girl and I talked Twilight as he sat in disbelief. (PS her fiance’s name is Jacob and she’s Team Edward….oh the irony!) I told her that he was taking me to a metal show and that I fully intended to wear my Team Edward shirt to be sure I didn’t lose my identity. She said she was going to be at the show too and would wear hers as well.

She walked back to her table, leaving me and my completely disgusted date at our table. I was so giddy about the exchange I couldn’t stop giggling. Then she came back over and put a pin with Edward and Bella down on the table and said she wanted me to have it. I immediately put it on my dress and all was right with the world.

It just goes to show, you can’t judge a book by its cover. Unless that cover has a pair of hands holding an apple on it.

Twi Style

Posted in Twi Style with tags , , , , , , , , on September 1, 2009 by awesometeenmag

It’s no secret that A is a little obsessed with the off-camera wardrobe of our fav Twi-stars. Between all the plaid shirts, the skinny jeans and the v-neck tees, it’s enough to make a gal go crazy…or go shopping! (Amazingly, that sentence applies to both the guys and girls in the cast!)

This weekend, with the first paycheck from a new job burning a hole in her brand new saddlebag-style pocketbook, A hit the mall for some serious fall wardrobe shopping. And our friends in Vancouver were on her mind. (PS this is A writing this post…I’m just gonna go ahead and revert to first person. I’m confusing myself in the third.)

Anyhoo, I headed to the mall for some Twi Style shopping. First stop: Bloomies. I’ve had my eye on this red BCBGeneration dress for two months, ever since I noticed it in an issue of Lucky Magazine. It’s so KStew. I mean, it’s great for attending events for work. Ahem. 

my new dress is a combo of this look...

...aaaand this one.

...aaaand this one.

Anyhoo, I had the salespeople on high alert to call me the minute it came in. And call they did. I ran in, tried it on, convinced myself it was as fab as I’d been dreaming it would be and made the purchase.

Rob? Ready to walk the carpet with me? Get your hand out of your hair!

Rob? Ready to walk the carpet with me? Get your hand out of your hair!

With my red carpet look in hand, I headed to Forever 21, a veritable Twilight cast member closet-full of hipster wanna-be duds. I was scouring the racks for the perfect plaid shirt—I’ve only ever found one I liked well enough to buy and it’s a men’s shirt. I like to tell people that Rob left if on my floor when he slept over. (Ok, I don’t really tell people that. Often.)—when I spotted the ultimate hipster wanna-be t-shirt. Black. V-neck. Questionable design on the front. It was as though Nikki Reed herself had handpicked this shirt for me. So I bought it. 

At $16.95, it was a little pricey for a cotton Forever 21 tee, but hey, what are you gonna do? When Nikki Reed says jump, I say how high? And I also ask her if this is part of the patented Nikki Reed and Elizabeth Reaser training technique. I digress. 

As I made the purchase, I sent a quick email to a friend asking if I was too old to wear the shirt. (Editor’s note: I’m nearing the end of my 20s. You’re shocked, aren’t you? I know, I have such a youthful glow!) Sadly, said friend was at work and didn’t respond until long after I’d left the mall. Her response: “umm, yeah. Maybe a little. Hope you didn’t buy it!”

Too late! Ok, reader(s), so here it is: the shirt. Tell me what you think…and keep in mind that Forever 21 has a pretty strict no refund policy.

Nikki can I borrow this? Thanks, heart you, mean it! Hate your wig, mean it!

I think it’s fun and will look great with the skinny jeans I ordered from Neimans online (if they fit) and a pair of ankle boots. But then again, I thought KStew looked fab at Comic-Con. KIDDING!! 😉

A (Bobby) Long Night

Posted in Mix Tape with tags , , , , , on August 21, 2009 by awesometeenmag

So we here at ATWIM have to confess something: while we actively follow the RPattz Music Possee—the holy trinity that is Bobby Long, Sam Bradley and Marcus Foster—on Twitter, we haven’t heard a ton of their music. Sure, sure, we support those crazy Brits in all their magical, musical endeavors. We just haven’t been lucky enough to see/hear them play.

Until last night.

After a couple weeks of emailing with his manager and grinding our teeth in giddy excitement, we got to see Bobby Long play at one of our fave ATL hipster joints. To be honest, we didn’t know what to expect. M has pretty snooty musical taste (or so she’d have you believe, but she does have a Paula Abdul record…and the New Kids greatest hits CD. That is, if A ever gave it back to her). And A was just excited to be that close to someone whose lips have most likely been on the same frothy pint glass as Rob’s. It’s like we were kissing him by association. (Not a stretch at all!)

Anyhoo, after a slight snafu about press passes at the door (editor’s note: Bobby’s show was well worth the $15 we weren’t supposed to pay, so we let it slide!), we entered the world of Bobby Long fandom. Which oddly included an eclectic group of rowdy Twi-moms, randy girl-on-girl couples and too-cool-for-school hipsters. Way to bridge the gaps, Bobby!

A spent the evening running around with her camera to add to her growing portfolio of too-many-Twi-photos. M hung with one of our fave boys, BJW, who had no idea what he was getting himself into, but agreed that Bobby put on a good show. 

We’re planning to run an actual review on the ATMusic site, but we’ll say this: British boys with plaid shirts, sultry voices and a guitar are really freaking hard to resist! And Bobby was no exception. He made the blues hot! And man did the crowd LOVE him! (Not that we blame them.) They knew every word to every song, cheered (inappropriately loud at times) every time he tried to speak, and steadfastly refused to move from their prime viewing locations in order to facilitate A’s shooting. (Thanks surly hipster girl for eventually sharing your wall space with me!)

Though we’re still thrilled that we got so close to someone who’s so close to RPattz, we gotta say: Bobby totally holds his own with talent (and hotness). And on that note, we’re gonna post some pics from last night. We’ll be joining you in staring at them while we listen to “Who Have You Been Loving” on repeat. 

PS A’s Photoshop isn’t working, so there’s no watermark on these. If you want to use them, fine, just give us a shout-out and post our link 🙂 Thanks!!

Now She’s Just Messing With Us…

So you know the Bracelet-gate theory, Twi-hards: After their alleged rendezvous-es (most notably post Twi-Conn), KStew and RPattz like to swap this black bracelet. (If that’s what they’re really doing, we gotta say it’s kinda LAME!) Anyhoo, we have thought from the beginning they were doing it to mess with the press (and the devoted Robsten supporters), and now we think we were right all along. To make it even more frustrating for us playing along at home, KStew rocked about a thousand of the darn things last night at the Teen Choice Awards. Touche, Stewart. Touche.

 

Wonder where Rob was hiding his last night. Hehehe.

More on our TCA thoughts later. It’s a busy day at the ATWIM offices! Working on some drinking game quotes…keep your fingers crossed!!

It’s The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Posted in Eclipse, Small Bites with tags , , , , , , on August 6, 2009 by awesometeenmag

It goes without saying that Twilight Saga film shooting time is the best time! We’re inundated with daily images of our favorite plaid-wearing hipster cast wandering the streets of Vancouver. (Question: does everyone wander around Vancouver like that? Is it really that walkable of a city?) 

We have a fantastic post in the wings for tomorrow (if we do say so ourselves), but today, let us all rejoice in the daily pap offerings. 

Oh, and Rob in the Porsche coming from “Kristen’s house”? Not buying it! Not buying it ONE bit! There’s no bracelet!!

 

First it's his...

First it's his...

 

...then it's hers!

...then it's hers!

That’s Not OK!

So we don’t usually post on Saturday, but something came to our attention that had to be written. While picking up her Rob-graced People Magazine last night on her way home from the bar (when all great purchases are made, natch), A spotted an issue of OK! Magazine with Robsten on the cover and the headline ROB AND KRISTEN REUNITE: STEAMY NIGHTS TOGETHER. Knowing the importance of investigative journalism and factual reporting, A added the mag to her pile and headed home. 

The gist of the story is this: Rob loved Kristen for a long time. Kristen loved Michael Angarano and thwarted his advances. Same story since time began, right? Ok, so here’s the part that PROVES that OK! Magazine is a big fat liar.

You see, Twi-hards, this issue came out BEFORE Comic-Con. The story goes on to claim that KStew has decided (upon seeing a photo of Emilie de Ravin’s hands ‘resting tenderly on Rob’s arm’) that she is in love with Rob and must get him back. (Even Dakota Fanning is insisting she reclaim what is rightfully hers. Did we mention Dakota Fanning’s like 15?! Yeah. Anyway.) Back to the point. OK! claims that Kristen was so intent upon recapturing Rob’s heart that (and we’re quoting here):

“She asked her Runaways stylist to find her a sexy sundress and a couple of great outfits to wear at the convention. She wants to look so amazing that Rob won’t be able to take his eyes off her.”

Wow. Just. Wow. Really? Does this look like an amazing, sexy outfit that the hottest man in the world wouldn’t be able to take his eyes off of? Does it look like a sundress? Does it look like it’s ever been washed? Check your facts OK! And trust no one, readers.

 

If you're cracked out and you know it, tug your shirt!

PS We found this pic on SAWF News. If they want us to take it down, we will gladly oblige, but it was too funny not to post.

We left our heart in San Diego…

We don’t have to remind you what today is, Twi-hards, do we? It’s Thursday! Which means New Moon-related Comic-Con activity goes down TODAY!! While we’re sadder than Bella on a forest floor that we couldn’t get out there for the Con, we’re uber-excited to start getting deets as they leak onto the ‘net. (In fact, Co-Creator A is considering sitting by her computer all day. Oh wait, she already does that.)

Between never-before-seen clips from New Moon (though we’re still debating how much of this darn movie we want to see before November 20. We need a little surprise at the theater!) and the will-they-or-won’t-they appearance of our fave trio, this is possibly the most exciting Twi-time we’ve had since the DVD release party!

Sure, sure, we’d rather be there. (Did we mention we won’t be attending?) But you know what? Let those other Twi-sites—like our friends at Pattinson Online,  Twilight Lexicon and Letters to Twilight—deal with the ear-piercing shrieks from the fans. Let them handle the shoving crowds and the fainting girls. Let them see RPattz’s beautiful, beautiful face in person and possibly bump into Tay-La’s perfectly sculpted abs…we digress.

Seriously though, you know we’re going to have a lot to say about all the goods coming out of Comic-Con today, so check back to see how we’re handling the whole thing. And share your thoughts on it all, too! 

And don’t forget to follow us on Twitter @AwesomeTM. It will be just like following someone who’s at Comic-Con. Except we’re not.
