4/24: Some amazing news on a very happy day!!! ^^

Posted in How To Be, Movies, Robert Pattinson, Twitter on April 24, 2009 by Lydia

Hello loverlies!!

So today I wake up feeling pretty awesome. First a show that I haven’t seen in forever (Daria) came on MTV this morning. Then after that I watch the end of Merlin starring the ever so awesome Sam Neil. While in the middle of watching these shows I recieve a package from the FedEx person. I open the door, find the package, and then see that it’s from my ever so awesomely lovely Twitter friend TwilightilDawn (Dri).

I open the said package and much to my delight there is a piece of paper with rubber bands hiding something behind it. The first piece of paper that I see said:

“Thinking of you!! Oliver, Johnny, Mike and Joe send you a big hello!!”

So this excites me thoroughly!!! I remove that top sheet and this is what I find!!!

0424091005-00

And on the back is the autographs of Oliver Irving the director of How To Be, Johnny White, Mike Pierce (Johnny and Mike were in the movie), and Joe Hastings (he did the music).

0424091005-01

So I was sooooo totally psyched about having their autographs that I basically went crazy on Twitter! I told Dri how much I loved her, etc. If you want a full account of what went down at the Chicago screening of How To Be click here for Dri’s full post with pictures! (There are some where you see Johnny signing the card!!)

In other fandom news, Eclipse now has a director for the film. It’s ’30 Days of Night’ David Slade. People are kinda scared that he doesn’t have the same vision for the ‘loveable’ vampires as Stephenie Meyer, but he did do awesomely well with ’30 Days’ ,so I’m really curious to see what he does.

I know there’s something else to fangirl over but I honestly can’t think of what at the moment. Well until I remember!

Happy Earth Day everyone! Hope you are doing your part in making our planet a better place whether or not you are doing your part on it’s designated day.

So I was looking at my friend pages on LiveJournal after I posted the first part of this story that I am currently working on, (click here to read more), and I come across this on the PattinsonLife community:

This, my lovely friends, is the wolf pack for New Moon. I don’t know the order of the guys or who’s who, but aren’t they fun to look at? Still miss the old wolf pack, but these guys are getting up there.

4/21: New Moon, New Rob, New Harry and New Stuff to Fangirl Over! Oh My!

Posted in Harry Potter, Kaleb Nation, Movies, New Moon, Robert Pattinson, Star Trek, The Leaky Cauldron, Tony Awards, Twitter on April 21, 2009 by Lydia

So after some internal debating and the help of my two loverly friends on Twitter BrkGirlSoldier and Flangel66 (click here to read his blog) convincing me to fangirl today, I have decided (obviously) to post today. And lucky you this post in true Vlogbrothers fashion comes in multiple parts!

Part One:

So a LOT has been happening this week in a lot of fandoms and it’s only TUESDAY!! Part one is dedicated to New Moon today. By the way when ever Entertainment Tonight shows on your TV be on the look out for the snippets of the behind the scenes stuff like what FoveverTwilight.com has up on their blog today. You can view them here right now. There are snippets of Taylor and Rob and I couldn’t view the second clip because it didn’t load. Also in New Moon news, they have found the tank that they’re going to be doing the infamous cliff dive shots in. Now I don’t know if they have started shooting yet or not, but VancityAllie.com has pictures of the location and a lovely article to go with them which can be viewed here.

Part Two:

Kaleb Nation of Twilight Guy fame has his book Bran Hambric: The Fairfield Curse on pre-sale on Amazon. I really suggest you check out this book. It’s about this boy orphaned boy raised by bankers who later finds out that his mother did some kind of curse and was never able to finish it, so they all end up going after Bran to see if he can complete his mother’s curse.

You can download the first 50 pages of his book at branhambric.com.

Part Three:

GQ has released outtakes of Rob’s photoshoot with them.

The rest of the gorgeous Rob photos can be view here.

Part Three:

Now Harry Potter!! The Leaky Cauldron has posted some new info on The Deathly Hallows movies (view here). It’s quite interesting. Not as awesome as the trailer that came out last week, but interesting nonetheless.

Now the miscellaneous part four:

As summer movie season approaches and Tony season as well, you will see more and more different kinds of stuff that I fangirl over. I will openly admit, and you know I have no shame in admitting this kind of stuff, that I am a fan of many fandoms and the comic book and science fiction genre are the two that I hold dearly and closer to my heart more than anything. So I am giving you fair warning in advance of these posts. They wiil be more out there than my Twilight and Harry Potter posts. So will the Tony related posts. (I’m a really big theatre junkie.) But don’t fear! You will still be able to get all your random fangirlish insights on other things by me. Just giving you a fair warning.

Until next time my loverlies,

~Lydia

P.S: Now I really do have a post up on Thinks if you want to check it out. Sorry I didn’t post one yesterday. Click here for post.

Random Fangirl Moment #5

Posted in Jonas Brothers, Random Fangirl Moments, YouTube on April 20, 2009 by Lydia

Warning now: This is a Jonas Brother one. But if you want to see a very silly picture of me read the post and watch the vid.

The Jonas Brothers have this site for fans to post fun things Jonas related on and to interact with other Jonas fans. Basically it’s a social networking site for the Jonas obsessed. *points at self* If interested the site is: http://fanfamilyexperience.com (If that link doesn’t work tell me!) So the Jonas Brothers issued a challenge before their movie opened to send in pictures of you and friends enjoying all things Jonas or at the movie opening day. Now my dear friend Chelsey sent in a collage of me, our friend Stacey, and herself of us enjoying opening night at home to the head of the Texas branch of the FFE. She complied a bunch of pictures and our collage happen to make it!

Our picture comes in at the 5:40 mark and the funny picture, which I can’t believe she used, is kinda in the middle on the right and it looks like I’m humping the cardbord cutout, but I’m NOT! I was goofing around and she snapped the picture. Oh well. We were uber excited when Chelsey and I found this out, and we know the JoBros actually watch these videos so that made it more exciting!

Enjoy the video.

P.S. There is going to be a post up later on Thinks On My Mind if anyone wanted to read that, so stay tuned for that.

Random Fangirl Moment #4

Posted in Harry Potter, Random Fangirl Moments, Snape, The Leaky Cauldron on April 17, 2009 by Lydia

Before you read anything further on this page PLEASE click this link if you have not seen the trailer yet!

And if you aren’t really into Harry Potter that much ignore this post entirely!

http://video.the-leaky-cauldron.org/video/1155

Did you see it?!

OMFG!!!!!

I so can’t wait to see this movie!!! This trailer is the best by far! It had the Ginny/Harry hand holding, my favorite line from the book, “FIGHT BACK YOU COWARD!”, and more of that wonderful scene with Snape!! My heart swooned so much when that was shown! More of Draco being involved with the Dark Lord and showing a fight scene between him and Harry! Oh how I can’t wait until the 15 of July!! But until then I will keep watching this trailer over and over again. Also this one too: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qGvArBK1XCQ

Until the next swoon worthy moment!

4/15: Hold on tight for the roller coaster ride that is this post

Posted in Harry Potter, Movies, New Moon, Twitter on April 15, 2009 by Lydia

Hello loverlies of the Interwebs!
I’m back on here in what feels like an eternity! If you read my other blog Thinks on My Mind you know that I have been having computer problems and lack of access to the internet. Fear not for my computer is back and well so I can do the fangirling and being me again.

I have pained news to bring you if you have not heard it already about the New Moon cast. It has been finalized and here are the people who are casted and my opinion on them.

The Volturi:
Charlie Bewley as Demetri: I have no idea who this is and I’m basically too lazy to find out, but he probably is going to suck.

Jamie Campbell Bower as Caius: No need to be in it. Love you Jamie, but you are no Caius.

Daniel Cudmore as Felix: This guy played Collsous in the X-Men movies.

Christopher Heyerdahl as Marcus: He was in Catwoman, Chronicles of Riddick, and Blade: Trinity. He might be the only hopeful in the bunch that they have chosen.

Dakota Fanning plays Jane: We all know how I feel about her so no need to write a novel over this decision. (Still am really sore over this fact)

Cameron Bright is Alec: I honestly think that my friend of the same name could be the perfect Alec, but that’s just me.

Noot Seer plays Heidi: She was in Head Over Heals with Freddie Prince; Jr. She’s okay I guess. Better than the girl who plays the bitch in the new 90210.

Michael Sheen plays Aro: NO! Absolutely not! Yeah I heard he was great in Frost/Nixon, but I honestly do NOT want him as my Aro. He isn’t cunning enough to be him.

The Quillettes/Werewolves:

Graham Greene is Harry Clearwater: Apparently he’s an Oscar nominated actor. Haven’t seen any pics of him yet, but he must be good. Plus he dies off anyways. Sorry people who haven’t gotten that far, but if you are going to see this movie I suggest the book, because I have a very strong feeling that they are going to eff it up badly!

Tinsel Korey is Emily: Have no idea who she is.

Tyson Houseman is Quil Atera: OMG he’s perfect! I saw a picture of him on another blog, forgot the link though, sorry! But trust me if he has the comedic stamna to be Quil then he’s so it!

Kiowa Gordon is Embry Call: Yeah I don’t know that much about him either.

So those are the newbies on the cast. I’m pissed off kinda at the Volturi decisions, but they made up for it in the Werewolf department.

On to other news! Nathan Fillion of Castle and Dr. Horrible fame is now on Twitter!! Click HERE to follow him! Speaking of Twitter apparently Ashton Kutcher and CNN are having a battle to see who hits 1 million followers first. I follow Ashton already and refuse to support CNN in any way possible, so my support lies with Ashton.

In the Harry Potter world there is a new trailer out which I haven’t seen yet and people won’t link me. =( But to balance out the sadness of not being able to see it Warner Bros. moved the release date to July 15th!!! This just means I have to rearrange my summer travel plans a bit. But excitement all around!!! ^^

Until next post loverlies!!
