Stuff my guy friend says about Rob and Twilight

"themoonisdown loves wee men" (guys friends caption)

"themoonisdown loves wee men" (guy friend's Facebook caption) and of course only a GUY could get that ghetto action figure to stand up

Dear Rob-

Apparently, lots of guys have seen the movie Twilight and are reading the books now… unfortunately, they’re just not talking about it like we are here at LTR and LTT. You think you and Chris Weitz and the Summit marketing dept could have a little heart to heart before this all starts again and butch it up a bit this time around to let dudes know it’s ok to watch this movie? Let ‘em know that it’s not all screaming fangirls and lovely dovey teen romance moments?! Sure WE, the girls, love all that stuff, but what about the werewolf action, the vampire hunting, fixing up motorcycles, cliff diving and hot chicks driving PORCHES for God’s sake? Show THAT stuff in your trailers, movie posters and talk show clips, and the boys will gladly tag along, I swear!

Also, could you please talk to your friend KStew about her acting skills? After chatting with my guy friend, and without ANY prompting from me, he says that she totally bombs her performance, citing the “blinking and stuttering.”

So, if you have a few moments, maybe you could bring up some of these points with your studio bosses and director… it would be really cool to take my guy friends with me to see New Moon… and I have a lot of dude friends, so more money in every one’s pockets! We all win! Oh, and you should meet this guy friend, you’d be good pals I know it!

"the hot future seeing chick and her boyfriend" - my guy friend

"the hot future seeing chick and her boyfriend" - my guy friend

So… just to set this up below here, Rob, cause it’s a smidge long, my guy friend was in my office and saw the Edward doll and proceeded to take pictures of it and posted it on my facebook. It actually turned out really neato and this was our resulting convo…

SEE Rob, guys really ARE talking about you and Twilight!

themoonisdown
:
OHHH yea the book is way better than the movie, but arent they all?

: it was entertaining, def could be a better movie if it wasn’t appealing to pop culture

themoonisdown

  1. This is totally funny.
    At the midnight showing when it came out there were at least 15 guys there that I saw. Then the next night I brought the husband and I don’t think there were any, I’m sure there were but there were so many pre-teens you couldn’t tell.
    I think there are more guys that have read, seen and like it, they just won’t admit to any of it.

  2. @Moon (Good stuff!) That convo with yourguyfriend is great! He has some good insight! I agree, beef it up for the boys! Rob has mentioned that he’s not making enough $. Anything to help a bloke out! & I mean ANYTHING! Ha ha.

  3. LOL, that was great Moon! :) Thanks for sharing.

  4. PS, I want my ming reading Edward doll! :(

  5. haha that was great. i got my ex-bf to read the books after he saw the movie with me, and he actually liked them! like everytime he finished a book, he’d be really anxious for me to get him the next one!!!
    now, why didnt i ever think of taking a picture of him reading them!?! ugh.

  6. amazing, moon! this friend is quite spectacular!!

  7. @Sam,
    because you didn’t know we would be here, wishing we could see that picture :)

    @Sam, Valerie, & Moon
    My hubby read the books, and though he claimed to not like them, he totally got mad when I took Eclipse with me when i left the house, and didn’t pause in between books either, he read them in about four days *a long weekend* and then started telling me how girlie they were, and how “bad” the writing was…Blah, Blah, Blah….then a week or so later, he came up with a “Twi”losophy TOPIC!!–which I’ll share in my next letter Moon– Go Figure ;)–I think there are a lot more UC(undercover) twi-guys than we know :D

  8. That conversation is hysterical! And MY Edward action figure just arrived in the mail yesterday. My head is just filled with ideas of where to take pictures of him to send in to you guys!!! :)

  9. @Sam, It’s okay! You’re not a ming reader after all. How could you have known it would have provided us with hours of endless entertainment?

  10. @Sam

    It’s okay. You are not a ming reader after all!
    How were you to know it would provide us with hours of entertainment. S’okay. I am sure there is another unicorn just waiting out there for you.

  11. @Sam, I guess that where the saying “hindsight is 20/20″ came from. But now we are all on the prowl for Unicorn sightings so you’ll get the next one. Apparently, they like to hang out at airports… who knew? :)

  12. @Julie Dang, but I saw a close up of the Edward doll and he (it) kind of scared me. Ha ha! I’m all for the life size Edward (what Sass has procured).

  13. @Julie – Woo Hoo!! I can’t wait to see some awesome “Where In The World Is Edward” pics from you. :)

    @Gen – I still want one! I need a ming reader of my own, LOL. Edward needs to meet snow, ha ha.

  14. themoonisdown : which chick? in twilight?
    themoonisdown : kristen stewart?
    myguyfriend : yeah
    myguyfriend: she talked funny or something
    themoonisdown: no joke, she’s like watching a bowl of oatmeal
    myguyfriend : like maybe her teeth didn’t really fit in her mouth
    themoonisdown : and did a lot of stuttering
    myguyfriend : and blinking
    myguyfriend : stuttering and blinking was kinda her response to everything….then again how do u respond to the discovery of werewolves and vampires
    themoonisdown: so you’ve seen Twilight?

    BRILLIANT AND THE LAST LINE IS THE KICKER. FTW.

  15. Your guy friend became my favorite person of the week when he said of Kristen Stewart, “she’s like watching a bowl of oatmeal.”

    that is EXACTLY what it was like… brilliant!

  16. What a great guy friend. That conversation is too funny. I’ve heard of many a guy taking his “mom” to see Twilight. Both times I went to see it, I could count the number of guys in the theatre on one hand.

  17. I refuse to have any part of this Twilight merchandising craziness…because one day, when I actually meet Rob, I can say with all honestly, “Yeah, I’m so not one of THOSE fans…” And he’ll be all, “Thank God…wanna smoke?”

    Light ‘em up, baby. Light ‘em up. Moon, I fully expect you to smoke with us.

    My guyfriend, aka my husband, can discuss the movie rather eloquently. He always brings up the Jacob-at-the-prom scene and proudly states, “That Jacob dude is totally gonna become a werewolf!” I induldge him in this, because a husband who is proud of his Twilight movie knowledge is a keeper. As is a husband who joins me in fasting and praying for a better New Moon. Amen.

    • @LA um… i’m smoking with you too, don’t forget about me.
      and your husband is amazing :)

  18. So full of win!
    Best line: “werewolf injuns” hahahahahahah! I laughed so hard. I want to be friends with your guy friend! haha! I love that he is a “unicorn”!

  19. Unicorn Friend is tres cool. My hubs, on the other hand, stalled out on chap 3 of Twilight, closed the book and said “I get the overall idea. She likes him. He’s beautiful. And he may or may not kill her.”

    Yes, I took him to the movie (viewing 3 out of 4) and his comment, “It was better than I thought it would be.”

    Fifteen years of wedded bliss and not even a glimpse of Unicorn Potential…sigh.

  20. @moon – It’s quite a treat to see a unicorn outside of its natural habitat (airport). You should take a pic of this guy and post it, preferably holding the Edward doll.

  21. @Sophie – Him even picking up the book is no small feat. My hubby won’t go near the thing, or the movie, or even listen to me tell him the latest New Moon casting news.

    The closest he comes to anything Twilight is reading these blogs over my shoulder and making fun of me for acting like a “14 yo girl or 22 you gay guy”. His words, not mine.

  22. I’m so glad to know that I’m not the ONLY person out there who was completely annoyed and distracted by KStew’s horrible acting! My exact complaints were the stuttering and eye blinking. How is that acting? The girl cannot get out a full line of dialogue without copious amounts of both. I’m not sure how she got the job. She played Bella a lot stiffer than the character is written, and she always seem disgusted and irritated. She needs to soften up.

  23. I love it when guys say those kinda stuff about Kristen (:<

  24. @UC–of course I will not forget about you. And the smoking. And the quadsome, HELLO!

  25. My hubby probably wouldn’t read Twilight if it was the last piece of literature on earth, lol. He also would never go see it with me.

    Not too hard to see why I lead such an active fantasy life is it?? lol

  26. @Sass Ditto on the hubby part. I’d have to offer him something… that’s for sure.

  27. I’ve created another unicorn. My friend Random from my ex place of employment. That’s three unicorns in my coven. I’m trying to get photo confirmation, as I am no longer at the office to verify.

    Still OMB resists. I’m whittling him down though. The other day we had a conversation that went something like this.

    Me: But, please, can’t you just read Twilight?
    OMB: Maybe, after I read Harry Potter, which you also want me to read.
    Me: That can wait. Read Twilight first.
    OMB: Why?
    Me: Because…I want to…have mind sex. With you.
    OMB: (laughs) Well, maybe.

  28. Oh and Moon, brilliant as usual. :)

  29. @Christa- you guys are funny! I just read your convo to Mr.F and he did chuckle.

  30. @Mrs.P, vickyb, sidhevicous…
    well i am definitely on the look-out now for another unicorn! i hope i find one in this small ass town i call home. ha. maybe when i go to my bowling tournament at the end of february in a slightly bigger city… or maybe at the end of march when im going to washington d.c. (yeah, totally the wrong way from canada!)… hmm.. alright.. im making lists, and i WILL find a unicorn.. if its the last thing i do (well not really, the last thing i do will be naughty things with Rob).. anyway, i will find one after i let the last one slip!! :) AND im gonna get an Edward doll!! woo-hoo!!!

    • @sam we have confidence in you. if you wish hard enough to find a unicorn, you will FIND one!

  31. […] a thought, wouldn’t it be heavenly if we got THIS Unicorn together with theMoonisDown’s guy friend who loves to talk Twilight? They could play Bella’s Lullaby on the piano while discussing Kristen Stewart’s facial […]

  32. […] Sent this to myguyfriend since he spoke so eloquently about her over at LTR and he had this to say: “ha, that dude she […]

  33. Is it wrong that when my husband and I were watching “Fringe” on Tuesday and the guy turned into a werewolf type thing, he said, “It’s Jacob?”

    Because if so, my husband is a prime unicorn.

    • @maliamo yep- prime unicorn. you shoulda gotten that on video!

  34. What my husband said to me tonight when he was showing me a new gauge he bought for his truck-
    Husband-Honey it does this blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah I’ll even upload one of Eward for you!

    Wait, hold up what did you say?

    Husband- You can upload pictures up to 5 to display when you want on the gauge, I’ll even put Edward on for when you drive.

    I couldn’t believe he said that.

  35. What is it with guys and Alice? Mr. Lu *loves* her. (not as much as my lust for RP, but close)

    I would’ve thought Rosalie would pull a ton of ass compared to Alice…but Mr. Lu swears Alice is much more attractive.

  36. haha so funny! my two grown up brothers took my mom to see twilight and they loved it! they even let me talk about it with them! now the younger of the two has read Twilight and according to my mother he loved it! I have yet to speak with him about it, but I am VERY interested in what he has to say. I told my mom to take photos for proof! I told her…”my brother is a UNICORN!” I will send pics as soon as I get them! =D

  37. i think the dolls are creepy
