This may sound weird to some ladies out there but sometimes I find you, as Art, (in How To Be) sexier than Edward… now it’s usually a momentary fleeting thought but still find you adorable, I do!
It’s something about that floppy hair and sad voice and puppy dog eyes that really gets me. Oh and the too short pants and plaid jacket. That’s like right down my alley.
So while all the other gals are Swwwwoooooning over Eddie-poo you can come hang out with me in all your Art glory and we’ll play nonsense songs on the guitar together. I just get the feeling that you are more Art in real life than you are Edward… and honey that’s alright with me.
Ok so I wrote the above lines last Friday thinking I wouldn’t get to see How to Be till I either caught it on IFC or was able to catch another screening at a Film Fest since the Burbank Film Festival was sold out. On a wing and a prayer I put out an SOS on the Twitter and Letters To Rob asking if anyone knew of an extra ticket lying around that I could use cause I simply HAD to see Robert as Art. I was dying for some floppy hair and guitar playing on a Saturday night. And as luck would have it the heavens and Rob shined down on me because the super lovely and sadly very ill London2LA gave me hers! Poor gal was sick and couldn’t make it so she emailed us, we had a great conversation and viola I was on my way.
I sailed into Woodbury University where they were having the Burbank Film festival with seconds to spare and again luck was on my side as I found a seat and settled in to watch the screening and live tweet whatever I could. Before it could begin, however, a girl calling herself the Burbank Film Festival Intern got up to “introduce” the film. Her introduction, however, turned out to be a bunch of thinly veiled digs at the audience. So here I will write her a letter within a letter…
Dear bitchy Burbank Film Fest Intern-
Instead of being “funny” when you told us “in case we didn’t know How to Be was NOT the prequel to Twilight” you just looked like an ass. That was all of us in the audience politely laughing because it was so awkward! And then when you said the crap about there only being 2 guys in the audience you sounded totally condescending to the dudes who were there. Way to keep the people coming back for more! Good job! Less talkey, more filmies!
Please don’t treat the audience like we’re 14 yr olds, because honestly you were probably younger than me.
Scowling girl in the back,
PS Oh and your sparkly, gold glittery dress wasn’t cute.
But seriously though, if you get IFC record that shiz or if they are screening How to Be somewhere near you I highly suggest you go out and catch it cause there’s nothing like seeing a great movie with an awesome score/soundtrack in a theater. Support independent film! Just don’t wear a Twilight shirt, please I beg of you. I was so 2nd hand embarrassed when someone walked by me sporting Hot Topic’s finest. Ugh. I would give you more of a run down but I don’t want to spoil anything for those who want to remain How to Be virgins. Your v-card is safe with me (thats what she said)!
“I think I’m passive depressive…”
PPS Buy this soundtrack! Coming from me that should mean a lot if I do say so myself
PPSS It can’t be said enough another HUGE thanks to London2LA, you are radical and I can’t express how appreciative I am of you and passing your ticket along. LOVE YA!
In honor of How to Be this morning’s AM Delight will be the totally awesome How to Be Trailer followed by an extra special surprise from one of your very own after the cut!
One of the O.G. LTR girls, Vickyb, has made this fantabulous video just for us all to drool over… We <3 you Vickyb!
sing it with me… So whhhhyyyyyyyy can’t I touch it?
