The Good Ol’ Days of Rob Pattinson

Dear Rob,

Where have I been, you ask? You might think I’ve been hiding in a hole distraught over the news that you MAY have REUNITED with you know who. But in reality, I could care less and it bores me so much to even think about the topic so that is the extent of what we’ll discuss about it. Do what you gotta do. But I Katy Perry would have been fun for a little while.

What I HAVE been doing, though, is getting kinda reminiscent. Call it old age (don’t call it that); call it the realization that The Twilight End Is Coming (wahhh), but I’ve been scouring the LTR archives remembering back to the days when you were SO MUCH FUN. Here are a few things I’ve found:

I really miss MySpace Gangsta Rob

Click for ultimate LOLs

who was the first Rob we featured in our series “What if Rob wasn’t famous.” You were inspired by a cousin of mine whose Facebook profile doesn’t look much better than your MySpace Page

And where did hott butt from behind Rob go?

(Is it me or did you gain a few in the backside?) This could also be called “Almost growing a fishtail-Rob”

And how fun was that time we lost you in 2009 & vickyb put your picture on a milk carton?

And I MISS DRUNK ROB. Especially when you look like a wedding crasher

(The caption on that photo was: “This is what Rob looks like when TomStu leaves him alone with a Nana” I bet that was funny back in ’09!)

And what about all the fun we had when you looked like you were a guy who delivered the best nachos of all time:

The Nacho Man edition

And remember when WE ARE THE ROB worked & actually brought PEACE to the fandom for like a whole 20 minutes!?

And remember back when Pattinson Pants lady used to exist & comment?

(I sure hope those pants still exist- DO YOU THINK SHE’LL BE IN LA IN NOVEMBER!? That would be a FABULOUS end to a crazy 4 years. Especially if she lets me try on the pants)

And of course who could forget Rob as a Trucker

Click to Re-read. You won’t regret it!

That one time where I ACTUALLY created a real profile on Trucker with the headline “My rig is big”

Sigh.. it’s been so long I even miss Gold Chain Rob

From the one where talked about all the Rob Dealbreakers we have

AND GUYS: We know how I feel about GQ Rob!

I’ve begged & prayed & waited but NOTHING comes close to this photoshoot for me!

Oh Rob.. what am I going to have to do to have that much fun again? Imagine another “What if he wasn’t famous…” But this time you’re a server at Downton Abbey (hmmm… good excuse to google more pictures of Matthew/Dan Stevens…..)


What pictures/moments/Old Robs do you miss about ROB?

    Omg. Thank you for ending with GQ Rob! That gold chain Rob was making me a little sick.

    Oh yes- I feel an era is ending soon and we’ll have to go back to real life. This was a fun few years and I thank you Moon and UC and all the great contributors. I have to say I’m a lot older than all of you but this site has given me so much enjoyment.

    I miss this!!! all of this! the fandom at this time! the exciment, the love! *sigh*

  3. MariaCecilia says:

    I miss Twilight Rob, 2008 ComicCon Rob, GQ Rob, Vanity Fair Rob..heck I’ll keep missing Rob until he turns up on my doorstep!

    I refuse to go back to so-called “real life” though. I’ll start writing fan fiction instead. Hm, hold that thought, Robward as a server at Downton Abbey..?

    • The Old One says:

      I agree. I miss every moment of Rob there ever was. But then I’m also happy I have years of completely-incomprehensible-indie-movie-Rob to look forward to. And I still can look forward to maybe, maybe, glimpsing him in person one day before I die, and then my life will be complete. Amen.

      • MariaCecilia says:

        Yay! Let’s watch his incomprehensible movies, each on her continent, eating popcorn, sighing, snickering, and tweeting each other!

        • The Old One says:

          Do you have a tweeter name, MariaCecilia, because I WILL tweet you if I ever have anything to say about Rob! My tweet name is @Toomud. Anyone else also welcome to tweet me–

  4. Elle says:

    Sigh.. I miss those Rob moments as well. I can absolutely without a single shred of doubt say that there will never be another celebrity I fantasize about like I have Rob. I don’t think my psyche would be capable of meeting RL Rob. I think of all the possible disappointments (like he probably doesn’t shower more than twice a week, or shave unless he absolutely has to, or that he’s mortal) and I’ve decided to live in LTR Rob world…. Where “British” is a race and “pimp” is an occupation. Le-motherfuc**ng-sigh. P.S Dear Rob, for the record, I knew you would forgive The Stew. But man you are so deserving of much more. I hope this “momentary indiscretion” brings her loving the shit out of you in public.

    Oh memories !! a partcular post I remember was when you compared a day in the life of Rob v Taylor – If I remember correctly Taylor was up at 6am and spent the day alternating protien shakes with working out, meanwhile Rob “came to” about noon and rolled off the sofa face first into cold pizza …..lolz I have pretty much loved being Robsessed it’s sometimes horiffying and often hilarious and certainly the experience is only enhanced by the presence of LTR long may you continue .. and thanks Rob for the memories … *cuts to soundtrack “I did it my way- Frank Sinatra* Why do I feel like it’s the end !!! Sob

  6. Special diet says:

    Vanity Fair Rob comes close.

  7. Beaspoon says:

    That Rob GQ pic is still my favorite Rob pic of all time. Gah. Gets me EVERY TIME!

    It’s funny, because I felt like I stumbled into the fandom so late, but it really was only 3 years ago, almost exactly. And while in some ways that seems like a lifetime ago, in others it feels like no time at all.

    I’m mourning the end of Twilight because it has been such a big part of my life, and because I am not really sure what I will read without good fanfic around, lol. It’s all crap right now, forcing me to *GASP* go to the LIBRARY and read ACTUAL BOOKS. Bullsh*t, I tell you 🙂 But I am excited for the future for Rob, excited to see what it will hold once he can put this behind him. I think (and of course it’s not the SAME, but it’s similar) that we can all agree that Daniel Radcliffe has gone on from HP to do some pretty great work on stage and in film, and I hope beyond hope that Rob finds the same acclaim and can shed Edward, as much as I love him:-)

    And I really, really hope that his future does NOT involve KStew. Gross.

    LMAO! Was that really Rob? LOL. I’m not talking about the photos. Was he playing around or did his best friend Tom put his “profile” on there? 😆

  9. Robfanhere2 says:

    Im talking about the trucker passion profile.

  10. Guitargirl says:

    Remember when Bobby Long commented here? Back in the days when there was fanfic like Wide Awake and Clipped Wings and Inked Armour. How about the day when we broke the internet (yes, you know the one. The day shirtless Edward was in Italy!) Dont forget the days when Rob told the interviewers that they could ask him anything. The days when the paps would video him all playful after a few sherberts and giggling at the camera? Aw, I wonder how the Pattinson Pants lady is. She took all of our teasing in good fun, I’d like to see her comment one last time before Twilight turns the lights out and packs up its knapsack.

    So many memories!

    It has been so much fun. A time that can never be recaptured, along with the innocence (both Robs and the fandom.) Ive loved it all! Thank you UC and Moon for a place to snark, drool, and take the piss. Not to mention chatting with the fun and the fabulous!
    I raise my glass (drunkenly, and in true Brit style – it is Friday night after all) to you both, plus Rob and Cathy Cougar (for still making the best film, despite the shitty effects and low budget.) Not forgetting Billy Burke for having the best Dad moustache.

    I’ll still follow Rob, but Twilight was the start of it all, and despite the fact that I mock it, it will always hold a special place in my heart.
