The New Moon Trailer

 

I went to see The Proposal with OMB and a bunch of friends. I’m so glad the girls were with me! None of us knew the New Moon trailer was playing before the movie! Talk about involuntary SQUEE! All we needed to see was the water and the rocks. There was a collective gasp at shirtless Jacob the likes of which I haven’t heard since we first saw Cedric Diggory jump out of that tree in Goblet of Fire. The theater was packed, and just about everyone seemed excited. Even one of the guys with us said, “Whoa! What happened to him?” I kept reminding the girls, “He’s only 17. He’s only 17…” I mean clearly I didn’t need reminding, being firmly on Team Edward. Don’t worry. I let everyone know that if they didn’t calm down that Chris Hansen would be showing up. That being said, can I just say how hilarious I think it is that you hear Laurent say, “mouthwatering,” and then the next thing you see is shirtless Jacob. What a clever subliminal message. I’m just sayin’!

The preview looked even better on the big screen, especially the fur-sploding wolf. I do hope that Edward doesn’t stop at, “This is the last time you will ever see me,” and actually does say, “It will be as if I never existed,” like he’s supposed to.  But all in all New Moon looks like it may be good, definitely better than Twilight.

We were all ready to go after the preview, but were pleasantly surprised that for the price of $9.50 they were actually going to let us see a movie, too. The Proposal was a lot of fun. We expected it to be good, but it was a lot funnier than any of us expected. It’s one of those movies that when I’m flipping through the channels I know I will have to stop and watch.

The Latest on Eclipse and Breaking Dawn Casting

There have been updates. I am reminding you to check my Auditions page. Many of you are finding much older posts, begging for info, and missing the Auditions page completely. I’ve made some arrows pointing at it. I hope that helps.

It seems that in my absence the Main Principal Actor Casting Director was posted and taken down because people were looking up phone numbers and calling the office when they were told NO PHONE CALLS. I’ll post whatever info I find here, but it will only be up as long as I’m allowed to have it up. Please follow the rules Acting411 sets. As I said on my Auditions page, it would be a shame if some really great talent didn’t get a chance to audition because they couldn’t find the info. We want the best movie possible. Please follow the rules.

♥Rabbit

EDIT 17Jun09: This thread is now closed. Please see my Auditions page.

Captain’s…er…log 2: The Wrath of Canned Frosting

Dear Captain Cupcake,

While it seems I may be the first to refer to you as such (online anyway), it seems that this name has been given to others previously. Who could forget Hostess’s Captain Cupcake? Me obviously.

UrbanDictionary, of whom I’m normally a great fan, has this to say on the subject of ‘Captain Cupcake’:

One who is the master of being stepped on, used, and abused by others. This individual is so passive in behavioral manners that they both tolerate and welcome such actions taken by others.
1. That dude is such a captain cupcake, his daughter is always milking him for cash and people are using him for free labor.
Well, that is not Captain Kirk at all (except maybe if there are Romulans involved). Please know that I in no way, shape, or form meant to disparage you. Quite the contrary. My attempt to objectify you was meant in the nicest way possible. Captain Cupcake simply refers to the running “Cupcake” gag in Star Trek. Well, that and your aforementioned yumminess.
So, ‘Captain Cupcake’…we’re taking it back! I just wanted to clear that up before Twinkie the Kid hauled me off to the hooscow.
Did I mention that Robert Pattinson still hasn’t called…schedule free…and all that?
Call Me,
♥Rabbit

Captain’s…er…log

Dear Captain Cupcake (AKA Chris Pine),

Ever since I saw you in The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement I knew you were something special. Just My Luck only confirmed your yumminess. I am happy to report that Bottle Shock was already in the NetFlix queue when I saw you in Star Trek (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday opening weekend). What a plus it turned out to be that you were in that movie. Star Trek, though, wow! You were great. Just enough Old Kirk, but not so much as to be parody. You made Kirk your own. Well done! Just, please, don’t put out any spoken word albums, ok?

Feel free to call anytime. Robert Pattinson hasn’t called yet, so my schedule is pretty clear.

FMCG: Chapter 11

I don’t know how much of Chapter 11: Complications I’m going to be able to talk about.  Things are still frustrating and unexplained in Benjamin Wheeler’s Twi-verse. For lack of a more tactful way of saying this, it seems to me that he’s miserable reading this book, but somehow can’t put it down. He seems hell bent on his analysis, and is beating his head against the “this isn’t love” wall. I don’t understand the love of every couple I meet. It’s different for everyone. I think this might be one of those moments for Benjamin that he might benefit from saying, “I’m happy if you’re happy,” to his new friends Bella and Edward, so he can move on to happier parts of the book and stop with the nit-picking. I’m just sayin’.

Now go see what he’s talking about, or you won’t know what I’m talking about.

FMCG: Chapter 10

Feminist Male College Graduate, Benjamin Wheeler, is as completed Chapter 10: Interrogations.  This was a fun one for many Twilight fans. It held scenes which many of us missed in the movie, such as when Edward shows up at Bella’s in the morning to offer her a ride and a jacket, thus showing us that he’s not only thinking of her safety, but, we can guess, her comfort. Edward and Bella sort of come out of the closet that there might be something going on between them. Go see what Benjamin has to say and then come back for some discussion, if you will.

Auditions Page

I’ve started an Auditions page in hopes that when people search for info on how to audition for the movies based on Stephenie Meyer’s Eclipse and Breaking Dawn they easily find what they are looking for. Ever since I first posted the links to Acting411 my searches have looked something like this every day.

A Blog Roll Please: Twilog

Ah, Twilog, how I love thee. I should have added you to my A Blog Roll Please thread long ago. Initially I was using this as an exercise to help me remember all the wonderful sites I’ve collected these past few months. I realized that just because I haven’t forgotten about you doesn’t mean others haven’t, or haven’t yet discovered the beauty that is you.

For those unfamiliar, Twilog is run by Whitley and Jeremy, a couple who created the blog as a way to share computer time. Twilog features photos, videos, and Twi-news regularly. They’re very good about bring us the latest picks from LaineyGossip and adding their own comments. My favorite on-going thread is Chapter Discussions. Every once in a while they will post a series of questions about what you were thinking and feeling when you first read a particular chapter. So far they have done chapters 1-6 of Twilight.

So if you’re looking for a new blog to follow, or if you’ve forgotten about your old friends at Twilog, head on over and leave them a comment or two. You might see something like this pic from JustJared.
