Yesterday, in conversation with fellow Gossip Girl lover Too_Far_Gone, I confessed that my current passion for Ed Westwick is greater than my passion for you *hides.* Hey- You can hardly blame me! I had just watched this video (and :26 in particular) and my life was ruled by “muted purples” Monday night. And all I’ve had from you lately is Hanes T-shirts paired with dress pants and fluffy, longish hair. You know how I feel about your unkempt look- I’m okay with a little rough around the edges, but if you start to look like there are probably pit stains under your arms and your breath smells like 3 day old coffee and cigarettes, well, stuffy Upper East Side clad Chuck Bass starts to look wayyyyy better.
That’s not to say that there haven’t been moments in this press tour that I’ve done a double take. “Wait, is that Rob? Wow- from that angle he looks less Oscar the Grouch and more like the guy I started this blog for.” Even seeing you at the Jimmy Fallon show last week barely got my temperature rising. I can handle the press call & interview outfits you wore- which were clearly picked out by you and TomStu early in the morning while you were still drunk from the night before, because the night before still hadn’t ended, or after you woke from your afternoon nap, 5 minutes before running out the door for your evening TV appearances- but I cannot handle your hair.
I’ve never liked it long. I’ve never been a fan of “Sex Drive” Rob- and even back then at least someone forced you to style it with a little gel or maybe some mousse. But now? It’s like if Mr. Darcy found a time machine and was transported from the 1800s to TODAY- maybe it works on set at Bel Ami, but need it under control now! It’s 2010! Slicked back 50s hair is the look for men right now!
Enough bitching, I did want to get Roblosophical with you today. I don’t know if it’s because I haven’t been feeling your “look” as of late, but I haven’t been consumed with the Remember Me press, interviews, articles & videos as I have been with your other work (named: Twilight) Sure, sure, I’ve seen the MAJOR interviews. I WENT to New York and saw you on Fallon. I watched The View, Jon Stewart, Myspace’s Artist to Artist and….. ugh… that might be it. Oh- I DID just read some random article on some Kansas City site (seriously- THEY got an interview and we didn’t?), but I honestly think that’s the extent of it. I have a few emails sitting in my inbox of interviews to check out from friends of friends. I actually have a real life FRIEND who interviewed you and I haven’t even read her interview yet. What is going on? Is it that I’m tired of reading and hearing the same questions over and over again? How many times can you answer “Do you regret Twilight.” “How crazy is your life right now?” “Do you fear Remember Me not being accepted by your fans?” Or…. am I more obsessed with the idea of you as Edward than I realized? Dun dun DUNNNNN And since this movie is NOT about Edward….then I just don’t care as much?
The thing is.. I know I’m not alone. I’ve seen comments here on LTR where other people have confessed that they haven’t seen all the interviews or read all the articles yet. I’ve gotten emails & confessions from readers to the same tune. What has gotten INTO us!? Is it the winter blues ? We’re going through the Rob Pattinson blues? Despite you being EVERYWHERE in the media, on billboards on our ways to work, popping up on every website we visit, we’re just numb because we’ve been hearing about this movie for like… nine months? And despite the media frenzy around you right now, it’s NOTHING compared to last summer- the summer of Remember Me?
I don’t know. I do know that in my conversation with Too_Far_Gone yesterday I did a little math. And it looked like this:
My love for Sexwick > Rob Pattinson currently
Well, that is until she reminded me while I was deep into my you-tubing of Chuck & Blair’s sexiest scenes, that all that will probably be thrown out the window come Friday night.
Too_Far_Gone: Well, wait until Friday night when we see Remember Me. We’ll be back at square one….
Me: oh yeah.. I forgot.. crap… sex against the wall. in a shower… spaghetti. His thing in a bra… hmm
Too_Far_Gone: ummm yes. scuse me while i… go pass out in the ladies bathroom just thinking about his sparklepeen.
See? Sparklepeen! You’ll never escape Edward. Never. In the meantime, let’s see if Remember Me ignites a lost passion in me Friday night. I’ll be happy if I stay up half the night watching & reading all the interviews I’ve missed over the past week!
So, let’s get Roblosophical (Are you new? That’s the Philosophy of Rob. It’s when we get deep. That’s what she said. Read more here!) Have you watched & devoured EVERYTHING about Rob in Remember Me like you have with the Twi franchise? If so- you get to be his fans of the day. If not, why? Unsure like me? Winter blues? Not sure you’re gonna like Remember Me? Can’t handle 1800’s hair Rob? Discuss!
We keep talking about it but you buy your tickets yet? You can buy them (here) in advance on Fandango.
Anndddddd don’t forget to participate in “Remember Me Saturday” this weekend! Who is going again Saturday!? Check out the Remember Me Saturday website for more details
