|Read Into That||[Lion and Lamb Love]|
Was it worth it? Considering I didn't line up en masse at the actual conference, I'm not going to complain. From the comforts of my bed, I tried scouring the Internet for supposed 'live feeds' only to get cockblocked each and every time (I love you Firefox update!). I also refreshed the compilation posts hoping for a photo or a sound bite or whatever.
So when 5AM (Manila time) rolled around and the tweets started pouring in, I got a little more than excited to see Rob and Kristen (and Taylor) and the rest of the 'gang' back together. And the craziness commenced
'Sensual Ocular Copulation' at the New Moon Press Conference
PART 1 | PART 2 | PART 3
ETA: Again, I know. But I just had to add that the super amazing folks over at Jezebel (which just happens to be one of my favorite websites ever!) posted this really really hilarious body language 'analysis' of Rob and Kristen (and Taylor!).
God I dream of writing as good as them (or the folks at NYMag, but I digress). Really, really, funny stuff. And non-srs-bsnss either! It totally made me laugh. Though there were soooo many great lines, I have to say this is my favorite.
Kristen All Jetts Firing
-- Kristen, on how she's changed since last summer
From calling Bella a "manic-depressive," to deadpanning that Comic Con was one of the "highs," -- I'd hate to see what the lows are. But really, it was just good to hear them talk sans Hardwicke. They're so much calmer and more relaxed. I put this on Chris Weitz, but more on him later.
-- Rob, on the highs and lows of being in the series
And though he's always dressed like this, it's funny seeing Rob not in New York and still looking a little like Tyler from Remember Me. I can't wait to see the break-up scene too which happens to be Rob's 'favorite scene' just because the clip from the trailer isn't enough just yet.
New Moon Panel
PART 1 | PART 2 | PART 3 | PART 4 | PART 5 | PART 6 | PART 7
NEW MOON SNEAK PEAKCLIP 1 (Bella and Jacob & Halucinatory!Edward) Considering I'm pretty easy to please, you know I won't be hating on much. The backdrop looks funny but I'm still not over how things are NOT blue, which makes me very happy. I was expecting a more bad ass motorcycle, and more hair flying, but it was pretty good. Taylor's been pumping lots of iron and it shows, though I had to laugh when he took his shirt off. I was expecting Fabio to walk in any second. Cheestastic! But did we expect any less?
CLIP 2 (Alice and Bella save Suicidal!Edward) I wasn't expecting them to show this and I was a little hesitant to watch it, cause it's such a pivotal scene that I was afraid it would be spoiled. Alas, I do not have self-control and went for it. I just LOVE Alice to bits! Looking good driving that Porsche! And then Bella running through the square and and the fountain! Of course they had to stop it right when Edward comes out which at least leaves some ~mystery.
OMG! It's Ashley
My Not-So Secret Crush on Chris Weitz
-- Rob, on how relaxed Chris was.
And please Chris, you should totally make a fan reaction video to the fan reaction videos. I see this as a special feature of the DVD. Do this, Chris. I will love you more. And just really while he was talking, I love how he didn't get into 'boring stuff,' or kept rambling. It's nice to know he didn't hoard the panel's time. I don't want to say that Catherine would have, but you know she could have.
-- Kristen, on how wonderful Chris Weitz was.
I need to see Chris being unintentionally funny with his Gandalf (from LOTR) stick and his six layers of shirts. Why have I written three paragraphs about him already?! This is somehow wrong, but oh so right. Please let me hug you, if I see you. Off to read your 21 Answers to the 21 Questions for you. Also, David Slade is nowhere near as adorable.
ETA: I just have to document, that I'm NOT alone in my C.Weitz love. Kindred spirit petitecherie and I had the most enlightening OT conversation on the merits of Chris Weitz. ♥ Off to imagine what masculine-ly hot cologne he had on at Comic Con.
ETA: Cause lovekissed showed me the cutest photos!!!And seeing everyone at the Twilight screening brought a tug to my heart! Kellan Lutz is looking really really really really good, just saying. I miss Jackson. I'll say it again. Why are you not here?
I have obviously said way too much on this considering I was just thinking of spamming the photos, but as usual my words have run away from me. Next stop? Teen Choice Awards. Goodness, will I be employed by then?
