It’s 5 o’clock somewhere, so pass me a beer and let’s cheers to UC and Moon on 3 years of writing letters to you! I realize they aren’t always the most flattering, sometimes a little fan girly and almost always snarky, but you have to hand it to UC and Moon — finding material to write to you when you disappear for days, isn’t the easiest thing to do. I think you should get their fan cards laminated for an anniversary gift (and maybe leave your phone number on the back).
In honor of this happy occasion, I decided to surprise the girls by breaking into the blog and talking to some longtime friends about their favorite posts. So enjoy! (How could you not, it’s all about you!?)
Today’s fellow guests, please introduce yourselves and how long have you been reading?
Read_or_sleep: Summer 2009
Cazza: March 2009
PlaneFriend: Reading Since: About 5 seconds after this post. When I saw Stephenie was going to have fansites interview her, I decided to go looking at the fansites. All the others I just glanced at, read a page or two, and never went back to again. Within days, I was reading most of the LTT backlogs…realized I knew UC a few weeks later, started writing for y’all occasionally, and the rest in history.
Stacey: March 2010
LonestarKendall: March 2009
Rachel B, formerly GriffsSayWhat: Winter 2009
Alice_NaA – Bella_NaA : A long long time ago, when palatial pads and hot pocket fortresses where yet to be built, Summit was not to blame, TomStu still shaved, Bobbygee shared his wisdom, AmanDUH was working her living room corners, the Pattinson pants were in style, and Oregano was not just an Italian herb.
superhumanmoron: January 2009
MrsKowski: I’ve been reading since March of 2009. The post that started it all for me was the “This is how you found us? Vol. 2“ it was linked on NewMoonMovie.org – my world has not been the same since I made the decision to click on that link.
Snowwhitedrifted: January 2010
Janetrigs: February 2009
Allryans: April 2009, actually since THIS post.
Operarose: August 2009
TeamSeth: September 16, 2009
And if you don’t know me, I’m Brookelockart and have been starting trouble since March 2009.
Which posts have made you snarfle your drink while reading?
Read_or_sleep: Four Words. WE ARE THE ROB. What happened to that song? When UC, Moon and special guests broke down the Details pictures. Most sites were basically just drooling and LTR made it look as if they were seriously analyzing the pictures. That time UC (I think) made the mother trucker profile for Ron when he was on the road trip from CA to NOLA.
Cazza: Pattinson Pants lady at ComicCon “she lives”….she was a celebrity in her own right but just didn’t know it!!!
LonestartKendall: Ahhh, the list is too long. TOO LONG. Anything by the Quad – those were always amazing,
Alice_NaA: What’s Remember Me about. I actually found LTR that way… by googling “what’s remember me about”. No lie. I then spent the entire day giggling about the city housing code loophole and recreational vehicles part. I also learned many fancy words here at LTT/LTR, it’s all about education.
SHM: Creepy Uncle Rob. I may have peed a little. That’s when I knew I had found my people.
Allryans: I have a continuous heartquake. I’m pretty sure that I could not hold it together watching this video of your incognito dramatic poetry reading.
Like most passionate relationships, there’s a little bit of love and hate. Which post made you love him or hate him more?
Read_or_sleep: I wouldn’t say this post made me love Ron any more or less. It just left me feeling confused,
Rachel B: I love the “jumping Rob” because that picture gave us endless hours of photoshopping entertainment!
Alice_NaA: Hate -> the time he was driving a green Porsche. Love -> That it’s normal to disrespect Rob nice and slow.
Bella_NaA: Hate -> the wonky Cosmopolis hair. Was he trying to one-up TomStu and his monkey beard?
SWD: The epic Chart-O-Robs. I like having a choice.
Janetrigs: PSA I have been Cyber Bullied, – This made me HATE Ron because it showed me how there was this crazy rift in the once powerful singular unit known as Twi/Ron fan. This meant that my friends may or may not hate each other over reasons that seem ridiculous, and thus I hated him for causing the rift, because it’s always the man’s fault. I loved Ron again, not after a LTT or LTR post, but when I saw DTR or Dirty Train Ron filming pics of Water for Elephants. There is something about DTR.
Allryans: HATE: (the real hate, not the Janetrigs kind). Not only did Rob completely botch this joke in the most unfunny, unendearing way ever, but REESE had to save him from it, and no one is worse than Reese. NO ONE.
Teamseth: This post made me love Ron more or this post made me love him less. I did my duty. Rob is not for me.
Great picks! I love Photo-shoot Ron (think GQ), but real life Ron may not be for me!
Sometime UC and Moon post letters that show Rob’s fans in all their glory (read: crazy). Which posts do you hope that Rob never reads? (because we’re delusional ladies who think he’s on this site)
Cazza: Hope he never reads the analysis of Ron’s jeans….is he carrying the jitterbug phone in there or is he just pleased to see all of us (er, no link, no time)…oh and also, the post about is he going bald? I mean, how much time can sane, educated women spend analysing things like this……
LonestarKendall: For the manips alone. Holy moly: The Next Sully
Bella_NaA: Haha, I think Ron has great sense of humor. The weirder, the better. I hope he made the crossword puzzle we made for him two summers ago. Actually I bet he was the commenter who pointed out there was a mistake in it.
MrsKowski: As for being second hand embarrassed for Rob to see any of the posts ..again, I don’t think there are any that he wouldn’t laugh his ass off at. I’m more 2nd hand embarrassed that there are rob fans out there that wear Pattinson Pants ), or the fandom movement to Respect Rob or more recently the crazy chick who recreated all of his pictures – wtf! Rob, I’m sorry
SWD: Not embarrassing, but I’ve never forgotten the reference to his chicken arms.
Janetrigs: : The Deal Breakers for Ron, where incidentally we may have first starting using the term “jorts” regularly. The manips in this one are crazy and I am kind of embarrassed for Ron and these ghastly creations. Also, The famous Trucker Passions profile created by UC. There’s creating a fake FB account, and then there’s creating a MOTHERTRUCKINBRIT persona. (I died laughing tho) Also every single crazy Letter from those poor souls who believe that Letters to Rob actually allows one to get Letters to Ron.
Allryans: This post was so 2nd-hand embarrassing that you prayed that Ron would never know this existed. Nothing NOTHING will ever be, could ever be, more humiliating than Debbert. I couldn’t even read the thing for fear of my face melting in second hand embarrassment, so I’m ever so grateful to TxLiLi for breaking it down. Please, let Rob never have seen this.
What events on twitter or on the blog will you never forget?
LonestarKendall: When the world became divided…or at least when I became aware: this side, the sane, who can have harmless fun and the other side, the crazy and more crazy who are dead. serious.
Alice_NaA: No charity song was ever so compelling and touching like “We are the Rob”. Bridges were built, mountains moved, oceans crossed and NReed and KStew made out.
Bella_NaA: The time Alice made Rob bake me cupcakes on LTR for my birthday! I will never ever EVER top that birthday gift. Ever.
Janetrigs: September 29, 2009 (yes on my effing birthday on effing Twitter): After asking a certain Twitterer to stop her Dear Rob site that said, “send Letters to Rob in 140 characters” and getting into a legal debate about libel and about a million zillion other things that were ridiculous, the twitterer threatened to sue me for defamation. Amazing. Oh and she had her husband join Twitter just to get online to call me a yeasty bitch….so what, I like Beer and LTT/LTR, get over it!
Janet, I think you win at life, especially for that selection! Ok, now onto one of my favorite topics: Fan Art or Manips of Rob.
Rob, I hope that you appreciated this walk down memory lane and please, reread the list of deal breakers. Definitely rules to live by.
