Happy New Year

It was a good year overall for me personally. I survived this economy yet again.

This new hobby is something I would have never anticipated or believed. It happened in 2010.

Outside of a handful of musicians, I haven't considered myself a fan before. This is not to say I haven't enjoyed movies all of my life. I have. But there was never any incentive to learn about the actors outside of what they do on the Silver Screen.

I have had favorite actors. I still remember
Matt Damon and Ben Affleck going from relative uknown to superstars in 1996 after they refused to sell the screenplay to Good Will Hunting. They still seem like good guys, but I am not anxious to learn what their next projects will be.
Other actors I really like: Steve Buscemi (I hope he has a scene with Kristen in OTR) and Phillip Seymour Hoffman.
I thought Paul Thomas Anderson was the up and coming director who could do no wrong (Boogie Nights, Magnolia) ---> what happened to him? I obviously didn't care enough to keep up. Plus, they are guys.

I am glad I became a fan of one Kristen Jaymes Stewart. There are so many rare qualities about her. She gorgeous in a way that I have seen before in a few women I met but not in a celebrity.

What makes her so attractive is NOT something that she has to work at. She is just beautiful regardless of her efforts. Its the inner beauty that must give her such pretty skin, eyes, and bone structure. And she has the right curves for my taste.

I didn't expect that I would also give a flip about her boyfriend, but Robert is a unique
individual as well and Kristen chose him. I have said many times it would be difficult to see her with some arrogant dude that doesnt treat her like Robert seems to. I'll let others talk about Roberts physical traits and talents but I know a good character when I see it in a man. Like Kristen, he was raised by good people.
The combination of Rob and Kristen's rare personal traits and what they have experienced over the past few years is a fascinating thing to watch.

I am not saying they are the only good personalities in Hollywood, but others just don't have an appeal that interests me. When I check
websites, that I would never goto in the past, I ask myself "what the hell am I doing here?" The news about these other people just isn't interesting.
Obviously I am not the only one that feels this way and unfortunately with this level of interest, their is bound to be some negativity.

I still think the vast majority of followers are good people. But that ugly minority, hiding behind internet anonymity, makes this difficult to stomach at times. Many
times over recent weeks I wanted to distance myself. I realize today that bailing is not fair to the majority of positive, caring people out there who appreciate the same
things about this as I do.

For the record, people that disagree with me are not bad simply because they disagree with me. I only judge people on their actions.

Its nearly 6 p.m in the UK as I write this at noon here. I hope Robert and Kristen have a great night with no intrusive disruptions.
I said after Brazil there were enough pictures to satisfy for awhile. I hope most of us remember that.

KJ saved this blog

Following Kristen (and thus Robert)is supposed to be fun. I witnessed some people getting too serious about all of this last week. This "hobby" took the place
of following politics for me. If its not fun, then I start thinking about moving on.

I prefer to write positive entries about Kristen and that is what I do half the time. I sometimes react to negativity, and that is what I really want to change. My post on 12/1 really incited the Nonsten crowd. I didn't enjoy writing that. It was in response to me hearing about threats towards Kristen
from some "fans" of Rob. Oh, I do believe in everything I said in that post, 100%, but I can't change peoples minds, so why bother.

After the private picture, or actually, the reaction to the private picture, I thought about deleting this blog. The atmosphere just seemed very wrong.

Had I not read KJ's blog last Friday night, then I might have deleted everything. She reminds me what is good and right about this whole thing.

If you haven't read her post please do so

I have studied alternative forms of spirituality for years, including a dose of Eastern religion. KJ doesn't talk about this, but I can tell she has been influenced by it. Some teachings talk about the "higher self" and KJ's writings have a knack for reaching that part of me.

KJ reminded me to focus on the work, she writes
"Kristen and Rob have both made it abundantly clear that they prefer to proceed through their daily existence with little to no attention paid to them. Of course,
they acknowledge that they have extremely high profile professions, and there are public appearances and press junkets they're to attend for the J-O-B
(and oh how we appreciate how well they clean up). . ."

I think about how it would feel to have people obsessing over your every move. I would not respond very well to it. Some people might not mind it because they love attention. I started this blog because I became enamored with Kristen. I had never been a fan of a celebrity before and one of the things I think is so
cool about her is how she doesn't really care for the spotlight. She is the opposite of an attention whore. Living in the spotlight has been an adjustment for her. She refused to be fake. I love that about her. She seems comfortable with the media now. Its a treat watching her give an interview because she still allows us to see her mind at work as she processes the questions.

Robert is very unique too. Part of the fascination of the R/K story is how these two unique individuals met. I personally think it was Darwinism on steroids. And I like hearing that they are happy together. I don't see that changing. But I remind myself, with KJ's help, to focus on the work and let them be. There will be plenty of opportunities in the future to observe them on the platforms of their choosing.

What I most look forward to in Breaking Dawn

As much as I sometimes feel Twilight is an obstacle standing in the way of the film that will become the signature moment in Kristen's career, I am definitely looking forward to seeing her as the baddest vampire in the Saga.

Sure it will be cool to see her wake up and reunite with Edward. Then to bond with her daughter. Then those visits to see J Jancks, when Js underling describes her as a supermodel. I hope that they can fit all that in to part II.

But the climatic scene, the battle, this is what I most look forward to.

In the battle scene, Bella loses her patience with Aro's posturing and wants nothing more than to get on with the fight. This Bella who taunts Jane with the knowledge that her little gift will touch no one on the Cullen side. This Bella that knows the Cullens can win because of her power. They dared to come and threaten her loved ones and she will make them pay. Kristen as the bad ass Bella who is ready to slaughter, who only regrets her shield because that means she has to stay back away from the hand to hand. She really wanted to kill Jane herself. I really want to see Kristen stare down Dakota. This will be fun and something tells me Kristen can't wait to do this.

Two years is too damn long. In the meantime, I am looking for some good
fan art of Kristen vamped out.

The mere existence of Nonsten is absurd at this point

Over the past nine months many events have occurred involving Rob and Kristen that are consistent with how committed couples behave. A picture. A sighting. Whatever. These are all events that only reinforce what sane people already know.
The only people who would deny these events as being relevant are those that have an
irrational need (aka fantasy) that Rob and Kristen not be together. For whatever reason, these fantasies require that R/K be single.

I started following all of this in March of this year. No one influenced me into
believing anything. I just looked at the pictures and read the interviews that were in the past. At that time, I could see the possibility for reasonable doubt.
I can't anymore. In my opinion, as much as Rob and Kristen don't want to talk about their private lives, they know their actions have told the story and they must be frustrated (and/or frightened) with the fantasy & hate fueled groups who can not accept what its front of their eyes. R/K don't want to discuss this with the media, but they have shown enough that it should not be necessary for a verbal confirmation. I suspect this frustrates them a bit.

If these events were happening to any other people, the matter would be dropped.
End of discussion.

I find it difficult to believe that such a thing as Nonsten actually exist. There have been so many events over the past year that platonic friends do not do. When confronted with these facts, the Nonsten crowd --- and actually I am finding the gayStew crowd to be just as viscous ---- resorts to their "PR" claim, as if R/K are so under the control of Summit, that they would carry on a fake relationship through 2012.

Kristen has said for a long time now that something so personal must be kept close and not be used for profitable entertainment. The two are consistent in their "we will not talk about it" stance when it comes to the media. There was a time when they might have denied the relationship, but that has not happened in over a year. Their actions over this time frame tell the story and I think Rob and Kristen are very aware of this fact.

There is an OVERWHELMING amount of evidence that anyone with common sense should be able to figure out. When those with no axe to grind learn the story, read the facts, and see the pictures, they will invariably see these two as a committed couple. There is no doubt these two are very much together. Its no longer debatable.

Some known events that platonic friends just don't do
- spend the Holidays together, including New Years Eve
-fly around the world to see each other on the others movie sets
(especially on ones birthday - Kristen spent her 20th birthday in
Budapest, Hungary where Robert was filming Bel Ami)
- then Rob goes to Montreal and New Orleans.

I thought that Budapest was the end of the debate. But I was still new. Anyone that lives by common sense would say that was the end. I underestimated the level delusion these folks maintain in order to keep their Rob fantasies alive. I find it odd that the most common term these Nonstens use for who they call "the sheep": delusional. As if these "sheep" were reading something into nothing when a girl leaves LA days before her birthday to spend time in Budapest, Hungary with Robert.

So many events followed. These events keep happening with regularity. More pictures are out today. But I will refrain from mentioning these in the discussion. I'll leave out the common knowledge that Rob and Kristen have pretty much lived together since he returned to the States to begin working on Water for Elephants.

To me these pictures from the Eclipse premiere made it obvious. People don't look at each other this way unless you have deep feelings.

Nonstens were adamant that Rob wouldn't visit Kristen in Montreal. They were positive he would go to London instead. Wrong. Montreal was a PDA filled visit. Not until Robert visited Kristen in New Orleans did he make quick trip to London. Then he returns to LA and the couple has numerous dates. But oh no, they had frowns. They
were hating their time on those dates. SHUT THE FUCK UP you morons. Those frowns were about the paparazzi. But for good measure we see a picture days later of smiling and holding hands on a date. That forced idiots to revert back to their standby argument: PR

A Brazilian news outlet had a translation of a Kristen interview in which she said after Twilight is over, she will "tell everything" I don't trust that she actually said that but I wouldn't be too surprised because like anyone else, Kristen's attitude may change over time. The couple used to avoid being photographed together. There has certainly there has been a loosening of their determination to not appear as a couple. They seem to have become less concerned with it each month.
I am sure it's too much work to conceal it. The attitude we saw
in Brazil in which Rob and Kristen did not seem to care who was watching in between takes is definitely consistent with a softening of their stance.

Again its my feeling that they have already said "yes we are together" with their actions. Many, many, actions. And it annoys them, IMO, that some people can't interpret, or refuse to interpret, what they see.

Again, someone without an iron in the fire will have no doubt when shown the actions ( and non-actions like not being seen ever with other members of the opposite sex) However, you have a group of women determined to hang onto their fantasies about Rob, and this means he can't be in love ( as he appears to be).

Some Nonstens have shifted. A few finally understood it was absurd to keep claiming these two are not together in the face of insurmountable evidence. But their new views are still hateful, shifting to "I hope they make themselves miserable." Perhaps R/K do long for the end of Twilight --- but it won't be the end of R/K. Not from what I have seen with my two eyes.

A discussion on Welcome to the Rileys ******spoilers******

I felt some further discussion was warranted on Welcome to the Rileys as my post on it last week was very brief. If you haven't seen the movie and do not wish to be spoiled, then do not read beyond this paragraph. If you have to wait for the DVD, and many of you have no other choice, then come back then. This post will still exist.

I live in Austin and we were in that second group of cities to get the movie on November 12th. Austin is allot smaller than Chicago and they didn't get the film? WTF?

After I saw the movie on 11/16, I emailed my friend, fanfic author "the shrew", AKA @edmett


Just saw it.   Just walked in the door. You told me you would be curious as to my reaction to the "nudity"

I do not see how anyone of a mature mind can take anything sexual from this movie. They did a good job of making her perfect skin look oily, on the verge of a acne breakout. I wasn't turned on by her dirty mouth, either, not in this setting. I would have been had I heard Bella talk that way LOL

I felt paternal towards Mallory most of the time.   It broke my heart that she didn't go home with Doug and Lois.   The ending only gave the slightest glimmer of hope.

Are people making an issue of the 1.5 seconds, split between two different shots, that we see Kristen's bare ass?  This movie certainly didn't encourage the "in the gutter" part of my brain. 

This email goes on to my ramblings of how Kristen really seems to be turning Bella into a sex symbol after seeing some pictures from Brazil
@edmett replies to me

Okay, so more thoughts on WTTR -- yeah, people that haven't seen the movie, some of them still think that she looks "hot" in the movie, and that she is sexy in it.  No, that really isn't the point, as you know from having seen the film.  That paternal feeling is exactly what they were trying to invoke in the audience -- well, paternal or maternal.  You are supposed to care for the girl and want to take care OF her.  Her life is tragic, and we are supposed to want to make everything better for Mallory.  Just like we are supposed to want to help Doug and Lois.  Their pain is so palpable and engrossing.  My heart broke for both of them as well.  Lois for feeling responsible for her daughter's death.  Doug for losing his daughter and blaming his wife. 

BUT, the point of the film is that all three of the characters go through such a journey.  They are all essentially the waking dead.  Dead to the world.  Dead to the good in life.  Dead to human connections.  Doug tried first to recapture that in his relationship with Vivian, but when she ACTUALLY died, well, I think that showed him the difference.  As he tells Lois, "he isn't dead."  He wanted to live.  Which then set everything else into motion.

I think Doug and Lois got some closure about their daughter's death through their interactions with Mallory.  I know that sounds obvious, but I just mean, I think that it helped them both to realize that with teens, there can be little control.  I think it helped them see that they weren't "responsible," and in a way, they got to say a better goodbye to their daughter through Mallory.

The time that the three characters were together allowed them all to reach out again.  The fact that Mallory calls Doug at the very end tells me that she still wants that human connection.  She wants to have him be part of her life. She needs him as a friend. She needs him as a grown up that she can run to in times of serious need.  In a way, Doug allowed her to recapture a small part of her stolen childhood.  She had to learn about letting people help her, accepting it.

What do you think?
my reply to @edmett

I think your analysis is freaking awesome and I wish could have said it so gracefully.

I didn't feel enough hope, at the end.  It was only upon further reflection and finally this email from you to put it in the right perspective.

Clearly, anyone thinking there was anything sexy about it got it wrong.  Did they even see it? Yes, she has a nice butt (correction an amazing bodacious butt) however those scenes weren't racy and I do not think Jake Scott intended them to be.   I am glad my paternal reaction was what they were trying to accomplish.

The scene at the end, the one that was trying to say "there is hope" is the one time they didn't alter Kristen's naturally stunning face.  She was very pretty in that scene and it must have been for cinematic effect to contrast the mood with the rest of the movie.

My pessimistic side is what dominated my feelings in the theater at the end.  Yes, she was calling Doug, but she was on the way to Las Vegas to continue working in the sex trade.   I wanted her to say to Doug "so, I have never been to Indiana" thus deciding to live with the Riley's and let them all continue to heal each other.   But that may have been too unbelievable, IDK.

2nd reply from @edmett

I had the good fortune to read the draft of the script that had a more "rosy" ending.  People thought it was too unbelievable, and not realistic enough.  Perhaps my view of the end is still with the impression that it reaches that first ending -- in which she IS living with Doug and Lois.  I think they DO get there, it just takes longer.  And without showing MORE of their transition and growth, then it might not have played out well on film.  Reading it, it totally worked for me.

That is always what I have said, that those people who thought it sexy got it wrong.  No, Jake Scott NEVER intended to sensationalize or sexualize the story.  He de-emphasized that so strongly.  WTTR got down to the deeper issues at play.  Sure, she is a stripper and prostitute, but what does that mean?  This movie delves into answering that question.

You are right about that last scene.  The natural beauty of her face, it came through.  She is more natural.  She may be going to be a stripper, who knows? Perhaps she is only going to dance from then on?  I like to think that when she leaves, she is more in control of her life, and is able to make more decisions to get out of that life. 

I have been thinking about writing a fanfic about WTTR that picks up where the movie left off.

Now, what did you think about the movie? Even if it's February and you just watched on DVD, give us your thoughts below.

***just added****
One more thing. I pieced this together last night and I needed @edmett's OK before publishing. I had not even thought about contributing to the WTTR fund before this morning. I hope some of you will contribute $5 or whatever you are comfortable with. I know its not a charity. I send plenty of money to good causes. This is more of an indulgence, but I think its worth the effort.

A look back at Brazil

As always, everything I write is my opinion.

I think we got way more than expected or should ever ask for. So much that everyone should be beyond satisfied for a very long time.

The trip didn't start well from my perspective. I guess I am wary about what I think makes Kristen uncomfortable. And my opinion about that could be wrong.

First, we had pictures of them on the plane. That is never cool when they aren't aware. Then there was a crowd at the airport followed by screaming girls outside of the hotel. Those shrieks are more annoying than watching and hearing long nails scraped slowly over a chalkboard...why do girls do that? Its been young girls reaction to scream like this since the days of Elvis and The Beatles. Perhaps its like a heard instinct and they have no control over it. But I wish they would be taught early on to channel their excitement some other way.

Rob and Kristen are always kind and accommodating to these crowds, and if they were uncomfortable they do a very good job of concealing it. I imagine them
relieved and exhausted once they finally get to the room. I knew that crowd was waiting on them and I doubted we would see much of the pair.

I got an email about pictures on Sunday afternoon and I reluctantly stopped watching football for a little while. I was almost shocked to see
the couple waving from their balcony. I would have never expected to see that. That was the first of many surprises.

I suspect that behind closed doors
and with their friends, R/K are probably as touchy/feely as anyone we know. But when it comes to the public, I have accepted that Rob and Kristen will be less touchy/feely with each other than they will be towards their platonic friends. I can't blame that attitude at all, mainly because of the money involved in pictures that show any type of affection.

After seeing those balcony pictures, I felt something was different. Perhaps a new level of acceptance and/or serenity from Rob and Kristen. They know that most of their fans love seeing them together. And it must be annoying to have to fight against your own nature. In seeing Kristen with her friends, she appears to be a touchy/feely person, or even a hugger. To hold back on that with her boyfriend has to get old. I also think Rob has always wanted to grab her and hold her possessively in public but that he has refrained per her wishes. His behavior didn't change that much in Brazil.

It was really Kristen that seemed change, IMO. If Robert has complete freedom I think we would see allot more affection. Last week Kristen had her hands on Robert often. That was surprising. But it made sense to me after the balcony pictures. I really did sense something different. Even as they were leaving Brazil last Saturday Kristen was touching Rob. That may have been a first in an airport. I do not expect this freedom from restraint to hold, but it might.

Tons of pictures, some authorized others not. I don't feel guilty about the Street scene and the Beach set pics. Most of the others should not have happened.

On the street Rob and Kristen had to know that it wasn't just production cameras. They certainly didn't back away from each other between takes. They seemed very relaxed and were linked by hand or other touch in most of the pictures. The minority groups claim R/K "were just staying in character" --- Thats BS and those haters know it. Rob and Kristen could play Edward and Bella in their sleep. And if they were method acting, then why didn't Robert keep his American accent?

The waterfall pics probably should not have happened. It was hard to tell if some of those were on camera. This is when they looked the most like Edward
and Bella (due to makeup and hair) but they had to be Rob and Kristen because Edward Cullen doesn't smoke. They had their hands on each other in a casual way, which they usually do not do in public. They probably thought there were no cameras in this scenario. Kristen was pointing at something. Was it photographer hiding in the trees?

The pictures I really feel guilty for looking at are the ones when they went swimming. Its not like they did anything of note, but hadn't they been told that were were 60 armed guards on the premises? Its not what they did or didn't do. If they were lead to believe they had privacy, then the waterfall, piggy back, and swim pictures shouldn't have happened.

The pictures on beach with the cameras rolling ---- those were very hot, and the camera seemed close. Those pictures have to be good for business. I was not following all of this when the New Moon Italy set pictures came out. I do wonder if, once these pictures have been seen everywhere, is this something that brings in even more fans? Thinking about that scene, Bella trying to seduce the reluctant Edward, with the visual of Kristen in those short shorts --- for me was great. I bet Rob had difficult time pulling of the reluctant part (-: JK

I read a translation from a Portuguese Robsten site. The extra that hugged Rob during the street scene was saying she doesn't regret doing it. She seemed to be bragging and said that anyone that gets that opportunity should take it. I have to mention this which almost sours my favorite moment of the week, which was Kristen's reaction: The punch she wanted to give and pretending to pull her shoes off. I liked it. Rob and Bill Condon were smiling then, too. I would enjoy seeing Kristen get possessive and this was the closest we have seen.

It would be great to see Kristen tell her haters to FO and "Rob is hers so deal with it." Since she won't say that, plenty of fans will do it for her.

So this super secure lockdown in Baton Rouge is upon us. We were paid in advance for that.

Kristen was great in Welcome to the Riley's

I haven't posted in forever. Sorry. But today I am doing this short one and another longer one.

I saw Welcome to the Riley's Tuesday night. I had read enough about the movie going
in that I knew what to expect. The first thing I noticed was: Wow. They did a good job of giving the prettiest girl in Hollywood oily skin. And greasy hair. I knew that was Kristen in there, so I wasn't fooled, but they did a good job of making a beautiful girl not so pretty.

There is nothing sexy about this movie despite the 1.5 seconds they show Kristen's
bare butt. You see her bruises right away and its obvious she
is too young and probably a runaway. I am allot younger than James Gandolfini, but
my reaction to Mallory was also somewhat paternal.

Kristen was very impressive. I expected this. Seeing her break down got to me.
And it was touching that Doug's motives with Mallory were about feeding his need
to nurture. He wasn't phased by Mallory's sexual advances. But we know in real life there are 50 year old men who do take advantage of teenage runaways. Yes, that's creepy. Kristen's character was a person who has to put up with these creeps.

As for award season, I am far from an expert, but it seems to me that performances
not as strong as Kristen's have won Academy Awards. I hear the competition
is really stiff and I don't want to set myself up for disappointment, but the performance was there.

I have not seen Speak, but I know that WTTR is Kristen's 2nd film with regards
to young woman and abuse.

That topic is apparently very important to Kristen.

Briefly I wanted to add this thought because I have never spoken about her being
being criticized for using the word "rape" last spring.

Did she need to apologize? After seeing the footage of Kristen being literally attacked as she was leaving Sydney last June, the word seemed applicable. has many definitions, including these. act of plunder, violent seizure, or abuse; despoliation; violation. plunder (a place); despoil. seize, take, or carry off by force.
These definitions easily could apply to what she was describing, which was having a group of 20 guys intimidate and take, by force, her privacy and/or dignity. She knows how it feels. Most of us don't so who are we to judge. As a man I should not and will not ever use that word when describing anything that has happened to me. Its not politically correct. But for a woman? If she hadn't apologized, then it would have dragged on forever, but I call bullshit on the whole deal.

What's on your mind?

I have been waiting for the Brazil trip to be over with to write a new blog entry. However, if anyone has a good idea for a post, then leave a comment.

What would you like me to discuss?

My email exchange with Anne Rice

To my surprise, Anne Rice responded to my email just a few hours later.


First a qualifying statement, I have read all of the "chronicles" and you were my favorite author between the early to mid 1990s. Last year or the year before, despite all the negativity surrounding "Blood Canticle" I very much enjoyed it the audio version of that one, which is the likely end to the series. I hope you write a few more. My favorite was the Marius book.

Anne, I don't think you understand Stephanie Myers fictional universe well enough to make the comment regarding "immortals in high school." Perhaps you have this confused with the "Vampire Diaries": a television show show targeted to a high school audience and very much centered around high school.

Vampires in Twilight's paradigm don't go to high school. Only the small coven, which refers to themselves as a family, attends high school. This small group is living a life of sacrifice. They resist human blood. They don't kill. They are outcast among the vampire society, which has no respect for human life. This small group, the Cullens, seek to live among humans and to be of service if possible. They are trying to convince the humans they live among that they are also human. The coven leader, or father, is a doctor. His wife is an architect. The other six were made immortal at a young age. To blend in and not be discovered, it's necessary for them to attend high school. They move every five years or so and start over.

Anne, with your conversion to Christianity, I would think you would admire this group of vampires who seek to be as human as possible AND above all be of NO HARM to humans.

Your comment seemed judgmental and misinformed.

hide details 12:50 AM (9 hours ago)

My comments were strictly based on the movies.
In every interview I always state that I have not read the
books, and I have seen only two films.
The interview was concerned with the deeper meaning of "the vampire" in literature and film.
I was offering my opinion on the question of immortals,
immortal sensibilities and how we imagine them.
I have always wished Miss Meyer every success with
her books, and enjoy acknowledging her accomplishments.
I don't really understand why these remarks got so much attention.
I've explained my feelings about all this before.
And frankly, I don't think my feelings one way or the other
about Twilight are very important.
I'm asked about it over and over and over and over.
There is a value to telling the truth in an interview.
Thanks for your letter.


there was also a follow up email. I went to her website and see that as of July, she has left organized religion. She still celebrates Christ, but not "The Church." Turns out she and I have similar views on that subject.

I am such a sap, sometimes

I've admitted to enjoying the fan made R/K videos. When I see one and I am still thinking about it 15 minutes later, it's a damn good one. A shout out goes to the person with YouTube account Fiorels90 for the one titled "True Companion".

I am going to be hesitant to post this..... But not really. I'll sit on it for 24 hours, though. There is just so much unique and precious about these two individuals. If they weren't so special, I don't think i would have overcome the tendency of a straight male to deny being affected by these types of emotions, especially in people I have never met.

I remember with shame some of my experiences as a younger man when it was about conquests, not relationships. We showed the greatest admiration for that male among us with the most conquests under his belt. I played along with it. I am sure it's still the most commonly bragged about attribute among frat boys and even some bachelors into their 30s. But I am here to tell you it's a hollow feeling, and I knew it deep down even when I participated in this behavior. I believe in Karma and I am certain I have been paid back for transgressions of my own when I was the age of one Robert Pattinson. He is above this juvenile behavior practiced by many men and we should try to be more like him.

Frankly, as much as I think of Kristen (it's an admiration that grows stronger every time I see her) I couldn't bear to see her with a man that didn't treasure her the way Robert does. He knows he is the luckiest man on the planet. It's obvious in his actions.

I know many out there adore this couple. The love for R\K can develop quickly.
In one of my first post I discussed how this happened for me. The key part was that it happened quickly and nothing remotely similar had happened before. Within a few days of learning the names, Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, I was experiencing the behaviors of what one might call a shipper. I don't need frequent pictures and public confirmations of their love. As special as I think it is, it's got to be protected. This is a rare thing that we may never see again.

When so many Hollywood celebs would eat up the attention R/K receive, they downplay it and seem embarrassed by it. Its a humbleness they exude. Last weekend, they run into a video store and run out, as they have no interest
in being seen. When everyone wants to see you, not being seen is just what they should do. But we have mountains of pictures and videos to refer back to. We may have to wait awhile before we get pictures that are of the same quality as
the Eclipse premier. When I say quality, I mean unguarded moments when they can't help but show affection for each other. But pictures that great should be rare. If those type pictures happened all the time, then we might not appreciate them as much as we do.

There are so many qualities of a strong personality that they show us as one entity, Robert and Kristen. (This is not to mention all of the little nuances that they both exhibit, such as their hand gestures and little habits, such as biting their lips and running their hands through hair).

I think R/K will be around for a long time, thus the "True Companion" video is a heart squeezer. They are nothing even close to a typical Hollywood couple.

Why the infrequent updates

I had hoped to update this blog twice a week, but that is just turning out to be unrealistic for me. Nearly all of the posts, and especially the ones
that were widely read, were written in about 20 minutes because I knew exactly what I wanted to say and got it done. I feel like I have gotten all of
my opinions out there regarding Kristen. I do find myself more impressed with her every time she is in the news. She is very rare and I have never
felt compelled to write about anyone before. I won't let her go undefended and I do want to know about instances when she is criticized. But at the same time,
I am not going to respond to the daily "foam" as some of my friends in this fandom would call it. The people out there claiming PR are just not credible. And PR professionals are getting ticked off
about their vocation being tarnished.

Message boards aren't credible. And for the record, I am not credible. Anyone can start a blog. Its up to the
readers to decide if they think you are credible. All I do is give my opinion. The lunatic fringe that hates Kristen or Robert will say and do anything to try and make
their case. They have to save Robert from himself. ***Yes. I acknowledge that the exact opposite exists as well**** Its so annoying. The haters on both sides combine to make
a loud minority. Some of their attacks are tragically personal as well. They might make interesting subjects of a sociological study.
I want to avoid this nastiness as much as I possibly can.

If someone dares to go negative about Kristen on a widely read blog, then I will step in and counter them. --- If you guys tell me about it. Other than that, I'll update this blog when I am inspired to say something.

Its hard to find a credible critique of Kristen as an actor. Anyone that has taken the time to see her in more than Twilight knows that she is a rare talent. The Roger Eberts of the world have been on board
with Kristen since Sundance last January.

Any remaining doubts of Kristen's talents will be gone by the middle of next year. After Welcome to the Rileys and On the Road have been seen, Kristen's skill will be widely known. Plus, we might be in for some joy come award season.

A few quickhits

---Kristen's hair change. Last summer, when I heard she was going blondish for OTR, I didn't want her to change. But now I have grown fond of the strawberry. I love the Bella hair too. Anytime she changes, whatever it had been will be missed.

---All the R/K date nights. I sure was glad to see that smiling picture came out. We don't know that they were aware of being photographed at that moment, but I hope they were. I decided six weeks ago that all pap pics are bad, even the cute ones. But they are going to happen regardless. And I have found myself unable to not look at them so far. If they did know they were being photographed, then there might have been some shift in the way they think about their public perception. Perhaps Rob's agent, who was in that picture, had convinced them to loosen up. Pure speculation here on my part. But I want to remain vigilant of not encouraging pap photos. I wish there was something I could do.

---Kristen did some serious flying over the past few days. We saw her with Rob on Friday in Baton Rouge. Then she was at the Scream Awards Saturday night ( I have my dvr set for 8 p.m. CST Tuesday) Then to NYC today. That's allot of air travel. I hope Summit or someone put her in a private jet for some of that travel.

--Need I remind anyone that Kristen is the Sexiest Woman on the Planet? See my post from 8/17. There will be lots more guys that feel this way over the next few years.

Till next time. I love the lip bite.

Kristen reappears

So last weekend (10/2) I wrote about people missing Kristen, but I was certain she was having a good time around good friends. The news that E reported last Sunday confirmed it and on that night there weren't any invasive photographers waiting on them. The other nights did have predatory paps. I tried not to click on any links to those pictures and failed. But I will keep trying.

Leno is a good platform for Kristen. She seems comfortable with him. And he took a break at the right time, right as her restless leg started to move (with no Rob there to anchor it down like on Kimmel). I still have to deal with genetic tremors when giving presentations at work, on a scale so much smaller. She faces this whenever it happens and her charming qualities are what those of us that love her will remember: How beautiful she looked. The adorable giggle.

Last month I had mentioned what a prick Letterman had been to her in June. But she never seemed nervous during that interview. That's interesting to consider. She probably knew that Letterman wouldn't be so cool, so she had the mentality necessary to deal with him and never let him intimidate her, though he tried. Then on Leno she had no reason to put her game face on and the nerves reared up for a moment. J took a break at just the right time and she was fine afterwards.

I have never been one to make a habit out of watching Letterman or Leno, but until this year if I had to choose one it would have been the former. I have never thought either was particularly funny. I am still not great fan of either, but I now have much more respect for Leno. This is directly related to how each has treated Kristen.

I wish there would have been a different clip for Welcome to The Rileys. For the most part that just looked like Tony Soprano yelling at his daughter. And I saw that clip six months ago. Why not show one where she had more lines? Granted she does her best acting with body language and facial expressions. This movie is the one that may get Kristen some big time nominations. She had no control over the clip but I wish it had been a new one.

So Kristen has reappeared after a long break from the public eye. No wonder why she loves New Orleans. She has been there on two occasions to work and manages to avoid the paparazzi. Even after that road trip by Rob and his mates they both avoided the cameras. I wouldn't be surprised if the people there looked out for them. Rob was definitely there but no pictures. They should consider living in that area.

I am looking forward to the weeks ahead.

Missing Kristen

Everywhere I look everyone is talking about how they miss Kristen.

I can certainly relate. That beautiful smiling face, which can be shown in more different looks than I have ever seen, is addictive. Fortunately so many of you have archives of photos. I am guilty of watching the sappy R/K youtubes as well.

It's a lazy Saturday afternoon and I suspect Kristen is having a great time in the company of good people.

What a strange hobby\obsession this is! It's unlike anything I have experienced before. I love this time of year. And I am enjoying the things I normally do. Football. I do the whole thing: fantasy leagues, I have a nephew playing at the HS level. And I like to wager online. The weather is perfect. In other years I would go on a long bike ride on Saturdays. I plan to get back to that soon.

I don't need to see Kristen today. If i did see her, what are the chances it would be a photo in which her privacy is not being invaded? Not so great. If she isn't happy, then I don't want to see it. So the archive it is.

She and her company are probably enjoying this day. Believing that is good enough to feed the addiction, for me anyway.

I have mentioned before that when I have had an obsession on a female in the past, we knew each other, and had dated or at least had some type of banter going. If the said female was seeing someone else, then naturally that guy was the biggest jerk I knew. That is just not the case at all here. I like it that she is with Rob. He is not a jerk. I don't think Kristen would date a jerk. She has said she likes funny, self deprecating men. That is Rob. He seems like such a good guy. I wish the best for him as well.

We will see some pictures soon. The kind they don't mind us seeing. They will be working, but still enjoying each the company of one another. They may fight a few times over the movie. Then makeup.

For them, working on a movie together must cover a whole range of emotions. I am sure they feel some stress and the pressure to deliver. But this is what they are good at and why they are in demand.

Until then, cheers Rob and Kristen. May your weekend be as relaxed as mine.

Red Carpets

A well known fan site I frequent has had a good discussion going this week regarding future openness (or not) by Rob and Kristen regarding their relationship.
Specifically, the topic discussed is if they will support each other or not on the Red Carpet when one of them has a premiere.   My view on the topic has changed a bit as this discussion has proceeded.

Those of us who are truly fans of them wish for them to be able to experience some normality in their relationship.  We can't help but smile at them when they look at each other, when that bubble is up,  and there needn't be guilt over this if we witnessed this in a setting such as the Eclipse premiere.  I don't care that they were working that night: people just don't look at each other like that without something quiet serious going on.   But since they were supposed to be there together, they had the perfect excuse.   If they behave even remotely close to that, say for example, at a Welcome To The Riley's screening, then their relationship would be the story and the movie an afterthought.

But can they show up together, ignore all the reporters, and simply be there together?  That all depends on what they are comfortable with.   The relationship
is old news, but it's still the hottest topic.   Such an appearance would certainly draw coverage.  To what degree?  The first one would probably be huge.  And, IMO, it would begin to taper off afterwards.        

Most true fans agree that the private nature of the relationship is special.   As Rob said during his Nightline interview, he is not trying to "sell" it.   That interview was as close to an admission as there has been.   Kristen wouldn't even have allowed that much discussion.   It's far too real to "sell" therefore, protecting it is the absolute correct action.   For Rob and Kristen, with their relationship being the uber hot topic that it is, the "no comment" IS really necessary to counter balance what's already in the public domain.

So there is the need to protect what is real.  Plus, neither of them are attention whores. I have written before that one the most appealing traits about Kristen (and thus, Rob) is being 100% genuine.   She grew up in Hollywood and it's my opinion that one of her biggest turn offs is the fakeness that permeates much of Hollywood and the endless self promotion of some it's inhabitants.               
The Red Carpet is sort of a cheesy, self-indulgent, "look at me" kind of deal.   It's the kind of event I think I Kristen never looks forward too, regardless of her relationship.

We might see Rob show up at her movies, and vice versa.  Kristen showed up solo (for the cameras she was solo) at Rob's Remember Me premiere.   However appearing as a couple on the Red Carpet doesn't seem to fit the R\K personality.
As a  friend stresses to me, the best we can hope for is that they can choose to do what feels comfortable to them.  Our vicarious addiction must come a distant second.

One final thought of a hypothetical future event that will happen someday.   And its just opinion as is everything else i say.   If Kristen were nominated for an Academy Award ---- Wild horses couldn't keep Rob from being there to cheer the loudest.

Back the eff of Kristen

I don't have time for more than paragraph this morning. I am just pleased to see Kristen wearing the Beasty Boys T-shirt that we last saw Rob wearing in Montreal.
It doesn't matter when the picture was taken, or who the shirt belongs too.

This 20 year girl takes way too much hate from grown women, who disgust me, and who should know better. Leave Kristen alone, "get off her dick."

I hope Kristen knows that the number of people that love her, for exactly who she is, far exceeds the small, yet vocal, group of fringe lunatics that promote hate.

A recap, roadtrip to see Kristen

Last week was kind of interesting. We saw the script flipped on the American tradition of traveling across of Europe. Some of us were lucky enough get to do this after graduating college. I wasn't one of the lucky ones. There are some major differences in what some of us got to do in Europe as opposed what Robert and his pals did --- but it's still an experience that you do with your close friends, when you are young and not tied down with a 9-5 job.

It's a shame that while in Texas, they stopped in Lubbock, where I went to college, and got surrounded by gawking sorority girls after someone announced his whereabouts on Facebook.

Then they next stopped in Austin, where I lived for the past decade, and basically had an entire bar to themselves. I am proud of my neighbors for letting them have some peace. It was a slow night in Austin, but even if it wasn't, we are used to seeing celebrities here. ****Austin is on any musicians radar, plus we have a respectable film industry here. I am sure he will be back. Last spring, Kristen was here for a screening of The Runaways, plus she enjoyed several bands during the SXSW Film/Music/Interactive festival. I had a comment the upcoming Austin City Limits festival, but I going to hold that thought for now****

Young Americans are not tweeted about when they board a train in London bound for Amsterdam or every time they walk into a pub. Rob was very gracious, as Rob and Kristen always are, to people that ask for a picture. I know its awesome that they do that, but I have already said my piece about autograph/picture seekers.

I have driven from Las Vegas to Central Texas and its not something I plan to repeat. It's not really that fun of a drive, but I was in a hurry then and I have spent my life making road trips. Rob, on the other hand, had not had that experience and I am sure it was a blast for those guys. Plus, I am sure he got to see his incredible girlfriend (the one and only Kristen Stewart) after the long trek. If i were in Rob's position there is little i would not endure to see her. I think he might feel that way.

I am not interested in debating the non believers and for the most part I don't think they read this. I am just going off common sense here. The last confirmed sighting of Rob was Thursday (or was it Wednesday) in Houston. People don't drive from LA to Houston for the heck of it. The Road trip was a means to an end. Robert needed to kill a few days until Kristen could break away from work.
Thus his gracious friends joined him on a road trip. If seeing Kristen was not the carrot, then they would not have turned South, IMO.

Also, since they were traveling by car, it was much easier for Rob to avoid the paparazzi as he neared Kristen. I am very pleased that there hasn't been any news ( as of this writing).

I can't look at pap pictures again without feeling very guilty about it. So even if a picture surfaces of them smiling and holding hands, i will not react and try my damnedest not to look at it. If I celebrate such pictures, then I have no right to complain the next time the paps are rude to the happy couple. This is a position I will hold myself too, but I am not going to preach at anyone else about it. We have to come to these conclusions on our own.

I said this on Friday (not here) but hearing nothing about Rob & Kristen since Friday is a good thing. To me, and many of you, we know they are enjoying each others company.

One more thing I want to mention briefly before signing off. It's football season. I am occupied for the most part Friday through Sunday. I have my nephew's HS school games and then I have interest in many college and pro games Saturday and Sunday. And I am diehard Dallas Cowboys fan. I spend time handicapping the games beforehand, and I am small time gambler on the weekends. No. I am not gambling addict. I bet small on many games. I have a weekly budget of how much I am willing to lose and I stop if/when that limit is reached. That being said, I have come out ahead the last three years. I mentioned this for one reason. I don't have as much time to follow R/K. So I need a favor.

No news is good news as I said earlier. If something happens (on Saturday or Sunday) that you think i would want to know about, would someone please DM me on Twitter or leave a comment on this blog. Either action will send me an email and I always know when I get a new message. I will be very grateful for this.

BTW: As I said earlier, I don't think many hateful people read this blog. But if such a person were to leave a comment here that i don't like, it WILL be DELETED before anyone has a chance to see it. It's only happened once so far. (So if you don't like what you read here, just go away, you are not welcome).

I wish all of you a great week.

Back to the games. Take care.

The funniest speech ever.

Since we know our favorite couple must be getting some serious privacy, might I offer you a laugh? I never ask people to look at this kind of thing. It's worth it.

This guy is simply announcing his candidacy for county treasurer. I have never laughed at at political speech if that is what it can be called. The best is around 4:20

I promise to blog about R/K soon.

Kristen in league with elite actors

Yesterday on I discussed Kristen's movies that I have seen. I briefly touched on a comparison between Sean Penn and Kristen. I want to expand on that.

People complain about Kristen's media interviews. Sometimes she comes off as ackward. When a press member ask "the question" which they know not to ask, these press members define Kristen as downright hostile.

Kristen is a saint to the media when compared to a young Sean Penn. Sean wouldn't give interviews, period. He went on David Letterman once, refused to engage with Letterman's tactics, and chain smoked the whole time (this was well past the point when it was OK to smoke on a talkshow --- and Penn seemed to be daring Letterman to confront him). The whole interview Letterman was walking on egg shells, not wanting to ignite Penn's well documented temper. Penn had a bad boy reputation. However, I think it was just as much about Penn being uncomfortable with the media and his immature way of dealing with it was by being hostile. He would not attend award shows. On at least one occasion, Penn was nominated for an Oscar and didn't even show. About 10 years ago, he really chilled out. With encouragement from guys like George Clooney and Kevin Spacey, Sean showed up to the Oscar Awards and took home the best actor award. Penn is still somewhat media shy when it comes to discussing his career. However he has become a heroic philanthropist and goes on CNN regularly to talk about the suffering still happening in Haiti and post Katrina New Orleans. One of the few bright spots from Katrina was hearing about Penn rescuing people himself in the days after Katrina. He flew down right after the storm, obtained a boat, didn't announce himself to the media, and was spotted making many trips, by himself, to rescue stranded people. That's a true Good Samaritan. Plus he donated millions. His efforts in Haiti were very similar. He was the bad boy turned hero.

Kristen, though uncomfortable with the media, soldiers through those interviews yet she is criticized way more than Penn ever was --- and only because certain topics are off the table. David Letterman treated her like dirt this past spring. If I ever see Letterman in person, he is going to have to deal with me for the way he bullied Kristen in that interview. He is not scared of a 20 year old girl as she can't kick his ass like Penn could have. He treated her like she is Paris Hilton when she is the polar opposite of that talentless, egotistical attention whore. Of course this interview happens not long after several of Dave's young former interns came forward regarding sexual harassment while under his employ --- all while he is a married man. No one talks about Letterman's misdeeds anymore. Every mistake Kristen makes is amplified and takes much longer to be forgiven.

I actually started this blog wanting to compare the personalities and talents that I find similar between Penn AND Kristen, but I ended up going off on a tangent.

Penn is very private, abundantly talented, AND passionate about his work. These are Kristen traits as well. Also, perhaps partially due to Penn's influence, Kristen was very generous with Haiti relief. She wrote a big check herself, plus gave three rich women a chance to hang out with her at the Sundance Film Festival if they made a certain high level contribution to Haiti relief. Not too many young movie stars would do that. Men were not invited. She is not stupid. She wouldn't torture Robert by having rich old men buying an afternoon of her company.

When Penn cast Kristen for into the Wild he was quoted and I have not been able to find those quotes (this time) so I am going to paraphrase. He said he was hesitant at first to cast her because she is too beautiful and he was afraid that would affect the authenticity of the story. But upon further consideration, he was trying to show the loving side of Chris McCandless, and Kristen's inner beauty was as powerful as her outer beauty. The sweetness and inner beauty that emanates from Kristen was just what the film needed.

This inner beauty about Kristen has been under attack since she became uber famous. Its so unfortunate. For those of us that pay attention to Kristen, we know that sweetness, that truly caring nature of hers, is there. She wears her heart on her sleeve, but unfortunately she was forced to protect herself to prevent her kindness from being exploited. Those very early Twilight interviews show that personality. It's too bad she must protect that side of herself now.

OK. This entry wavered a bit from original plan but I'll post as is.

Why do you do this Ted?

When I started my obsession with Kristen, I quickly liked the idea that she was with Rob. Mostly because Rob seems so humble and I can't stand the idea of her being with some egomaniacal Hollywood type. I have seen more than enough that I have come to the conclusion those two are together. April though June erased any doubts I had. What has happened since has been SO unnecessary AND Rob and Kristen have been treated like zoo animals.

I started reading Ted for the first time last spring. For a few months, I could not understand why he caught so much crap from people that shared my views on Kristen ( including the real life deal with Rob ). He certainly said that Rob and Kristen were very real. And he seemed to like Kristen as much as I did --- and he is not straight. So why where people that agreed with me so angry at Ted?

I finally figured it out. Ted has to stir the pot. He can't just let it be. Perhaps he needs controversy -I don't know. Showing the pictures of the house was too much, though I thought he was acknowledging that as a mistake.

But Ted, why the hell are you providing a platform for the hateful side of this fandom? I read his entry this morning and some of the comments. Whoever wrote this comment sums it up for me.

don't feed the pigeons Mon, Aug 30, 2010, 7:17 AM
This embarasses me. I have WAY too much respect for Rob and Kristen to partake in this. I think you'll find, Ted, that most of Team Robsten is far more interested in protecting Rob * Kristen's relationship than proving they were right all along.

Why not walk away from this?

Remember the story that came out a few weeks ago that suggested Rob and Kristen were going to stop doing Hollywood movies after their Twilight obligations were over? The story was quickly discredited as false.
I am sure it was false. However, from what I have learned about Kristen (and Rob ), the concept of escaping this rabid fandom has to be appealing.

I didn't pay attention to Rob/Kristen news for a few days and then learned late last night about the Kristen airport situation. What I am concerned about is it was ANOTHER airport situation for Kristen. This time was more about fear for her safety. It's not the same as what happened two weeks ago in LAX, but it is another event where large crowds are surrounding a person who sometimes describes a party as being "claustrophobic." I can understand that feeling.

After the Twilight Saga is over, Rob and Kristen will have a substantial combined wealth. Should they choose to live off the radar screen it can certainly be done. I would be happy for them if they went that route.

Of course the reason NOT to do this: they must take advantage of the iron while it's hot. How can they walk away from 15 million a movie right now?

Just thinking.

I apologize for the short blog entry. Just not feeling it right now. Good thing I am only writing this for myself, right? (-;

Blogger accusses Kristen of being miserable and bringing others down

In my last entry, I stated that those who feel Kristen Stewart is not handling her trips through LAX and have taken liberty to criticize her, then you need
to show us your qualifications. Show us an equally unpleasant situation and how you handled it with such grace, otherwise STFU.

I was shown a blog today by one shallow being name X. I decided not to name her or show the URL because she says nothing unique. To be honest, she has nothing original to distinguish her from fans who are simply jealous of Kristen.

The blogger says Kristen's middle finger is ultimately directed to you and me. Actually, Kristen is only flipping off the photographers who followed her on that long airport journey, or the ones who spy on her with a long lens. However, I will accept that I deserve anger or disapproval from Kristen if I am providing a market in which these pictures are bought & sold. I didn't elect paparazzi to represent my interest in the airports and other public places. I guess blogger X feels that she & paps are one in the same.

Blogger X has not only taken liberty to judge Kristen's LAX walks, but she takes it much further, basically equating Kristen to a miserable person who wishes to spread her misery to those around her.

For the sake of argument only, lets say this blogger is correct -- that Kristen did a bad job of handling her walk at LAX. So that also means that her all around behavior and demeanor is that of a miserable person with no joy in her life.

This blogger, and others like her, have two things they use to make this broad characterization. (1) Kristen hates being photographed by the Paparazzi, especially at the end of long plane trips (2) Kristen prefers to keep her personal life as private as possible. She won't spill to the press. Since those two items are true, then she must be a miserable person, who brings those around her down, and poor Rob is her biggest victim.

Forget that Rob and Kristen spend more time than any other celebrities signing autographs and taking pictures with their fans. I wasn't aware that ungrateful, miserable people do that.

So no other celebs have a tendency to raise their middle finger at the paps? Really?

Interestingly, X writes that we fans are fortunate that people such as Johnny Depp have not misbehaved so poorly in response to paparazzi intrusions. Depp has not only used the middle finger, but he was arrested for fighting with the paparazzi in 1999.

Forget that anyone who has ever worked with Kristen goes on and on about how much fun she is to be around and how easy she is to work with.

Forget that her personality is far from typical. She is shy and perhaps a bit introverted. She is very intelligent and she doesn't behave exactly like every other
Hollywood celeb. Don't cut her any slack for not being a robot.

And she is dragging down Robert with her? According to blogger X Kristen manipulated Robert into a relationship. And he is so weak and helpless, that he is stuck with Kristen and her miserable ways.

If there are chains that would attach one to Kristen, then sign me up.

Is it not possible that Robert wanted that relationship even when he thought he had no chance at it? Is it not possible that Robert might be attracted to confident women who are very much on the non-conventional side? Oh, and when he is not with Kristen in airports, he is just full of joy and smiles right?

And since the Teen choice awards were addressed --- in that Robert kept his hands to himself and did not seem to be having a good time --- it must be that damn Kristen
has taught him to be miserable. It couldn't possibly be that he misses her? That he is the happiest when she is around?

It seems to most observers, but apparently not blogger X, that Robert's smile with Kristen around is huge. But if you take her away then it appears he is just going through the motions. Because she makes him miserable, ya know.

The blogger even had a solution --- dump Robert and date someone not in the business. Because you know we have complete control over who we are attracted to. If its not convenient, then it certainly can't be worthwhile.

Our blogger says she knows what's Indie, and since Kristen prefers this type of movie to box office smashes, she sold out by doing Twilight. So when everyone who made Twilight thought it might be a cult classic --- they were all lying? When did Kristen say she would only do Indie movies? What I have heard her say is being famous gives her the choice of roles to take and for that she is quiet grateful for what has happened with the Twilight Saga.

Also, per the blogger, Kristen's decision to be in movies means she chooses this rabid attention. The blogger compared it to enlisting in the military and hoping to avoid war. So Kristen must be the only private person to make it in Hollywood. Anyone else, say Sean Penn, Chris Cooper, Jody Foster --- their lives have always been an open book, right?

X's garbage blog is full of accusations that Kristen is ungrateful and miserable, yet she has only the airport example and Kristen's refusal to discuss her relationship. There is no weight to her claims. She seems no more than a jealous Rob fan who resents Kristen for having what she wants. Rob, on the other hand, thinks Kristen is very special. He doesn't want or need the support of blogger X.

Airports, paparazzi, and Kristen

I do not enjoy watching Kristen go through airports. Its not a pleasant experience for her. This is made worse by the people that judge her for not handling it better.

In order to have the right to judge her on this, first you must have taken a long cross country flight and when you get off the plane, you had 20 guys with cameras waiting for you who then follow you on the very long journey to your vehicle, and all along the way they pepper you with questions in hopes of getting a reaction out of you that will make their pictures worth something since you didn't do what they hoped you would (like hold your BFs hand for the world to see) If you have handled that situation gracefully, then speak up. Otherwise STFU.

When you are treated that way, all the negative energy builds up and you have to react. I would probably get aggressive with the photographers and hopefully not end up in jail for assault. Kristen is tiny, the only recourse she has to get rid of some of that negative energy to raise her middle finger. No one should fault her
for that.

Because of the news that occurred the previous day, with the grainy kiss, gossip outlets that pay the photographers are hoping they get some additional PDA, such as hand holding in the airport. I never see anyone holding hands or being affectionate in the airport. Walking through the airport, regardless of who you with, is not fun. All I can think about is getting to the vehicle and getting the hell out of there so I can get home.

It may even be worse that what was happening at the airport. Rob and Kristen might not have had the option of going home because of those same guys may know where they live or they are going to follow you home to find out. Anyone would be angry about this.

Some of the reasons I am drawn to Kristen is I see myself is some of her personality traits. She is the opposite of an attention whore. As matter of fact, excessive attention, for people like me, drains you physically and emotionally.

Rob is not having an easy time with this, either. He is primarily concerned with Kristen but there is nothing he can do to make it better until they get the hell out of there. The guy probably feels helpless because he can't do anything for her.

It probably would have taken me a couple of days to recover from an experience like that because of the negative energy I would have absorbed.

The whole idea that Kristen deserves this because she is famous and gets paid well is just wrong. What Kristen did was spend several months using her god given ability to create a product that people want. They work hard during production. Sixteen hour days are common.

Rob and Kristen did not seek this degree of fame, but its here and they really do go out of their way to show appreciation to their fans by signing autographs and allowing people to get their picture taken with them. They probably do this more than anyone. I have not heard of them refusing fan pictures or autographs, even when they are approached having dinner.

Please pardon me while I go off on a tangent regarding autographs and trying to get close to celebrities. I am not the type to seek autographs and pictures. Its a personality trait that I think I have in common with Kristen. If she were not famous, i cant see her seeking autographs. She would admire at a distance (as i do). That's not being critical of autograph seekers, it's just that i don't see any value in an autograph or quick picture. So I would just stay out of the way. If i were in their shoes, I would not be comfortable with the attention, but i would certainly make an effort to let folks know i appreciate the support (and they do). As a fan i would only travel or go out of my way to see someone I admire if it was to see them perform OR if I knew I could have an actual conversation. If I did spend some time with the admired individual and shared a few laughs, then a picture would be a token of that experience. Otherwise, an autograph or picture isn't worth the trouble. I collected a few autographs when I was younger and the memory I have is of this person doing something they felt obligated to do, despite the smile on their face. end tangent

Robert and Kristen have gone through LAX before and it looked uncomfortable, but this time it was really bad. The pap from Montreal and that bitch Lainey made this 10 times worse by talking and tweeting about while they were in the air.

I won't blame Rob and Kristen's management because I don't know how the timing of all this went down. However, considering the news from the previous day, this would have been a good time to get them on a private plane.

Kristen wasn't raising her middle finger at me or you. But I deserve it if I am providing a market for paparazzi pictures. As I have said, from the Orpah show through the Eclipse premiere, Rob and Kristen did enough that reasonable people should have figured out (if they hadn't already) that these two are more than friends. They joy in their smiles as they looked at each other on the Eclipse Black Carpet was more than enough confirmation. They were working that night, but those smiles kept on and they were truly loving each other. They had to know we could tell what was going on. To me, that is what loving Robsten is all about. That was the modern day Romeo and Juliet on display. And those pictures were no violation of their privacy.

Kristen Stewart -- sexiest woman on the planet

I am officially declaring Kristen Stewart the sexiest woman on the planet.
In a couple of years, when the rest of the men learn about her because they will have seen her in movies not target towards teens, then I will say "told you so"

It's logical. If you take a poll, most women today are going to pick Kristen's BF,
humble Rob. And it's become quiet clear that if he is given the choice, he is not letting her out of his site. I wouldn't either.

When I use the term obsession, I don't mean the literal. I mean a fixation or a crush. I have never fanboy'd before so I have nothing to compare this Kristen obsession.

I only have personal experience. I have obsessed before, but I knew and dated those women.

UPDATE 11/22/10 This post seems to have legs and is showing up on google searches 3 months later. I am removing the personal experience.
I do want to add that certain groups of women persist with their absurd claims that Kristen isn't good enough for Robert. That is absolutely ridiculous. Kristen is so unique. There isn't a more attractive woman in Hollywood. Obviously Robert Pattinson agrees with this.
Also, whoever keeps spamming the comments section of this post with a soft porn URL, please stop it. END UPDATE

So I have little tolerance when I hear of these crazy Rob fans who would do Kristen harm because she has what they want. Violence towards women is unacceptable in all cases. But I was ready crawl through the Internet and xxxxxxx these bxxxxx on Monday.

Montreal is over. It was memorable. Kristen was treated well there. I hope the picture didn't cause her any grief. I am glad Rob is with her. They belong together.

Two pictures here. Catching a plane with Rob, sexiest woman in the world and not even trying.

Here she actually got dolled up. Amazing.

My apologies that these pictures are showing so small here, but you already have them anyway.

Take #2

OK. Maybe I am over reacting. Yes, it seems intrusive. But I have spoken to a few people and I said I am open minded.
I will always be against paparazzi photos. Last week i was concerned that the release of those picture would drive Robert and Kristen
into seclusion and thus an even less normal existence. Apparently, it didn't. They aren't being more careful. I am getting off this soap box for now. Sorry this post is so short.

Friday was Bittersweet

Yesterday should have been an end to all of the doubters, haters, or whatever they are called. But this is at least the 5th time I felt that way.
Even if Rob went back on Oprah and jumped on the couch like Tom Cruise, shouting his love for Kristen, then those people won't go away.

Now that the excitement had waned just ever so slightly, I hope some of us will ask ourselves the question: is this acceptable to use these pictures for our happiness when we don't know how Rob and Kristen feel about these pictures?

Everyone gets upset when the paparazzi makes Rob and Kristen uncomfortable. I was so angry after Sydney I was ready to fight. I still don't know if it's ok to
celebrate because of the means in which these pictures were gathered. I said this yesterday in the midst of all the excitement. I should have waited until today.

I may not say anything else on this topic. I don't want to turn this blog into a downer, but I always say whats on my mind. I just hope most of us are thinking about this. It's makes Friday 8/13 bittersweet IMO.

Rob to the paps "off my dick"

I am pleased that Kristen has her choice visitor. And I got a little pumped
when I saw these pictures (BTW: I just can't say Squee (-:
so I certainly can not criticize anyone for enjoying them. The sites I visit
on this topic are responsible and even protective of the couples privacy.

But aren't these the guys that harassed Kristen so badly in Sydney, the guys that chased Rob around Malibu, the guys that were chasing Princess Di in 1997.

Do we say some pap pics are ok but not others? I am not lecturing here. I am trying to answer this question for myself. As I said last weekend, I didn't need anymore evidence of the relaysh. What they did on the Eclipse Black Carpet alone was enough ( it was that obvious ).

I am curious as to what Kristen thinks about these pictures specifically.
She was on a movie set. Does this make it OK?

Or was the message on the back of Rob's shirt their prepared statement?

Just thinking!

Worthy of one another

Some people have this insane idea that either Rob or Kristen is not worthy of the other. I have seen a few Kristen fans with this attitude but for the most part, it's female fans of Rob who are relentlessly hateful towards Kristen. The reason this is more prevalent among the Rob only fans is because men don't "fanboy" the same way women (or young girls) "fangirl"

During the Jimmy Kimmel Twilight special in June, a girl asked Kristen if she has similar experiences to what Rob and Taylor deal with in the fandom. Her response was clearly no. Ashley Greene reinforced this when she said "nobody is here to see me" while pointing to the audience, which was the typical Twilight gathering of 90% women.

Rob gets the screamers. Screamers are not the problem, but I mention them because it emphasizes the intensity of some fans of Rob.
There are healthy levels of fandom. Most of the healthy fans like seeing Rob and Kristen together and wish good upon them both. And there is the extremism, which leads to hatred

Oprah compared this fangirling to Beetlemania. She was referring to the Twilight fandom in general. But I think 90% of the screamers who camp out are doing it for Rob or Taylor. The screaming is symbolic of the degree of obsession. Older female fans aren't screaming but they may be more obsessed.

Men don't go overtly nuts over a female celebrity. Teen age guys may have posters on the wall, but it's of many different women. Rob has millions of female fans exclusively devoted to him.

To be fair Kristen has many devoted fans as well, and most are women. However, it's not the same as the obsession for Rob. For hetero women, they think she is the coolest chic ever. Plus, everyone appreciates female beauty, not just men and lesbians.

Men will buy a magazine like FHM to see Megan Fox, for example, in a thong. It's temporary and mostly physical. We don't think about who she is dating nor do we obsess. Kristen could do FHM if she wanted to --- maybe she has. The magazine has a new set of girls every month and our pattern is to see
as many different ones as possible.

As Chris Weitz said about Rob in the Time magazine of the 100 most influential people, "Rob is what women want." There is rarely one woman who holds that position.

My assertion is that Kristen is very much Rob's equal. But men don't camp out and scream. If we behaved like women, then we would be screaming and holding "marry me Kristen" signs.
She is the whole package. Most men have not really paid attention to Kristen. Some of us are not attracted to strong personalities like hers. My opinion is that those of us who have paid attention to Kristen (and if we are unattached or happen to be Rob) then there is not a more attractive choice than Kristen. For those that only look at physical appearance --- she completely satisfies that aspect as well.
To say Rob could do better is one of the stupidest ideas I have ever heard.

For the women who have deluded themselves into the idea that Kristen got Rob because of luck, or you don't understand how she has him when he could choose between so many ---- Stop it. He got the best one available to him. And he had to pine for a while until she became available.

It doesn't matter

In my opinion:

Nothing that does or does not happen over the next couple of days has any bearing
on the future of Kristen or Rob, their careers, and their relationship.    

I have admitted to being a shipper.  I don't need any more "evidence."
They showed me enough  between May to July that I know that relationship is made of strong stuff.    I would have known this before then if I had been paying attention.    Actions always speak louder than words.  

First off, if I were either one of them, I would not want anything to do with the Teen Choice Awards.    I am glad Kristen doesn't have to go.   She is busy doing what she loves.   She doesn't need the recognition of this award show.     

Twilight is the one part of her resume that fits into the "teen" category.    As it turns out, the demographic of that fandom is very broad.    The teen part of the Twilight fandom seems more interested in Taylor/Jacob.

I suspect Rob has to attend.   There must a contract by Summit of some other entity that has money invested in him.   Being on another movie set is probably one the only things that can get you out of these award shows.

Rob may smile and put on a good show at this event, but it won't be the same smile he has when Kristen is on his arm.   I don't need to watch to know this.     If Kristen were there, then I would DVR it, then read what all of you had to say, then watch selective pieces of it.

Then after this silly show, it doesn't matter where Rob flies too.   He has plenty of good reasons to go home.   Plus, they might have already seen each other since Kristen left LA.  It's called private air travel.    The best case scenario is they get to see each other and we hear nothing about it.

Nothing changes over the next few days.  The end.

What is it about Kristen?

Why am I drawn to Kristen?  There are too many reasons to answer in one sitting.

What started my fixation on her were the facial expressions, which some people criticize as nervous habits, and maybe they are to a certain degree, and she has acknowledged some of these as "tics."   As I began to learn more about her, I have seen her own up to alleged "flaws," such as being nervous at award shows when she has to speak live in front of millions.    What is even better is that she has no intention to change these traits about her because that is who she is.

Kristen seems to put the highest value on being genuine.   Growing up in Hollywood must have exposed her to the fakeness that permeates much of it.   She avoids what she has seen that turns her off.    Rather than be coached on how to behave in public, she allows us to see her true colors even though this has drawn criticism.   Those critics are not worth listening too.  This girl was really raised right.

Despite the shyness and what I perceive as some introverted traits (I consider myself introverted and its NOT a bad thing), she is very confident.   She knows what she is good at and has enjoyed enough success that she seems not to need constant reassurance.    I believe this in part because of interviews by Rob.   He has said recently that she helps him understand the role of Edward.   I doubt Kristen does this with other actors, as many wouldn't appreciate it.   However with Rob, she must have seen the potential and knew they could make it work.   Rob has acknowledged being intimidated by her in the beginning.
Oddly enough, it was Rob's doubts about himself that convinced Kristen he was right for the role.

I think this same dynamic they had with the Twilight audition is what eventually led to them becoming a couple.   The other guys that were up for that role must have put on an air of infallible confidence in their appearance.   Kristen had to be turned off by this.   I read an interview recently in which Kristen discussed meeting guys.  She said if they aren't looking at her, then forget it.   This goes against the grain in most dating situations where the guy tries to seem uninterested.   The old reverse psychology method just doesn't fly with Kristen.

Its the genuineness about Kristen that is the biggest draw.   I will surprised if i ever learn she has plastic surgery.
Her beauty is the born-with kind.   She did look amazing during the Eclipse tour, but I have seen that beauty with her wearing a hoodie and very little to no makeup.

Music.  I continue to be stunned with her taste in music.  I could write allot about this alone.  She is only 20 years old, but must be an old soul.   In a recent interview she said that she would rather read a book and "listen to Led Zepplin" than spend hours on the Internet.  I first began to think she and Rob must be a couple after I heard her say that, because of him, Van Morrison was now one of her favorites.

Oh the Power of Twitter

What's happening people? This blog has an audience now. I was working from home today. That probably sounds like an easy day but it's not always. Yes you can sleep late but for me it makes no difference where I am. The phone is either going to ring or its not. Some days I can get away with doing whatever online but not today. It was 2 p.m. Before I checked email and I had several messages from blogger, stating I had about 15 comments. There was only one comment before today. Also, statcounter showed 800+ hits today (as of a several hours ago) That's pretty smalltime but before today I think I might have had 30 hits total since I started this in May.

I just checked stat counter again. It's 3,000 hits now.

This blog is not polished as you can tell. Its been sporadic. I don't promote it. Those entries all happened after I felt compelled to write and I am obsessive/compulsive. I wasn't expecting an audience but I am flattered with this response. I hope I don't disappoint but that's what I am concerned about right now. Like I said in the beginning I can't share this obsession with my friends here locally. I have admitted it to a few women here in Austin and they are not fans and don't understand it. If my male friends ever find out it will be fun trying to explain this. I don't fear it, because I am not ashamed, but I dread it. Fortunately no one I talk to in person does Twitter.

The blog got promoted today. It would have been fun to keep up with it in realtime, as the emails and tweets were happening, I but I had allot of angry clients to deal with. _DeeVee hit this blog at random. In Blogger, if you click "next" there no telling who's blog you are going to land on. Or maybe she saw my comments on Rose's blog. Either way, _DeeVee has lots of followers on Twitter and here we are. Thank you, DeeVee, and everyone who said nice things to me today.

I do very little on Twiiter as you can tell. I go on there and search for news but I don't Tweet.

So what now? Do I get all disciplined here and update on a regular basis? I am not unwilling, as long as my job stays relatively tame, but there is only so much to discuss.

I don't want to engage in daily disputes with morons (nonstens) who think the Earth is flat.

Yes I adore Kristen. That's not going to change. Seeing this young couple look at each other makes me smile.

There is no real news going on right now regarding Rob and Kristen. There are lots of people overreacting about nothing, but is that worth blogging about?

So I asking you all to give me suggestions. Otherwise, we have to wait for my OCD to inspire me.

I may write again later.

More on why this affects me

I went to the 0RCD (Obsessive Robsten Compulsive Disorder) website and took the test so I know that I 
AM a Robsten shipper.  Now that my disorder has held for longer than a couple of months, I am more and more convinced that there are more of us out there (straight men caught up in this).  Socialization of what's manly, maybe even a little homophobia, is what keeps others in the closet.   I have not read Romance books before Twilight and it was the vampire element that drew me in but the love story that hooked me.   I have never been a fan of any movie star, or a public relationship.   These two are so unique and they seem so genuine.   The obsession for me is mostly about Kristen.  I get upset when I see criticisms of her.   People that do not see the genius in her and effortless beauty are just too damn narrow minded to get it.  I also feel protective of the couple and unfortunately there is no shortage of attackers online.  
If Kristen were dating some typical Hollywood personality it would be painful to watch.   Rob seems very humble and deserving.  He is also very talented.   Its easy to root for him.   Their shared traits of shyness and reluctance to fame (more evident in Kristen) are endearing qualities.    

What do I get out of this: it seems similar to witnessing an underdog overcome obstacles to reach the pinnacle of success.  I guess.  Its  different.   Love is a powerful emotion and it's very rare to witness a couple in the public and "just know"  I think the couples decision not to speak publicly makes it more powerful.  When you see them watching each other, there is no doubt that the feelings are genuine.   I suppose the watcher needs to have experienced love themselves in order to see it in others.

Bizarre Nonsten crazies turn the delusion up a notch

Oh how the past couple of weeks have eliminated any doubt that Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson have been dating for awhile.

Aspects of Kristen's unique personality and style, which are sometimes far from typical, make her very appealing. Her flaws, such as the tics and lip biting, are adorable.

She does not behave like typical Hollywood movie stars. I don't think she wanted anything close to this kind of fame. True, it allows her to make choices others can only dream about, but is it worth the price to her.

Kristen is introverted. Not many introverts achieve the kind of fame she has. She is beautiful without putting any effort into being so. My main point is this: Kristen Stewart is not an attention seeker. Excessive contact with people drain the energy out of introverts. She does not like hype events like the Red Carpet.

The norm would be to love getting attention on the red carpet. The norm is bragging to the world about your boyfriend who is the most sought after man on the Earth. These are typical Hollywood traits that Kristen iS NOT.

IMO Robert does as Kristen wishes. As she stated in Elle this spring, to discuss your personal life is to cheapen it. So we will never get a verbal confirmation from Rob or Kristen.

But the fact is: they are a real life monogamous couple. Working together on Twilight they met each other. Darwinism was in overload when these two met. They are ideally suited for one another.

Signs of the relationship have been apparent for over a year, but now it's beyond a shadow of a doubt.

What's interesting is those determined to disprove in Robsten have began acting out in the most bizarre manner in recent weeks. Their behavior is now desperate and scary.

If any of you Nonstens come across this blog, please tell me why it's so important for you to dispute Robsten. What's in it for you?

What a rare talent

It's a bit annoying when all the news regarding Kristen, or at least what's on everyones mind, seems to be the relationship and not the accomplishments.

This girl is a rare talent.   She is the age of a college sophomore but seems to have the maturity of 30 year old.   I really hope the Indie film "Welcome to the Rileys" makes it to theaters nationwide.   I have read interviews with the director of that movie who describes Kristen as "magic"   

The Twilight Saga is such a cultural phenomenon that Kristen's talent gets overlooked.   I tend to believe she bailed out weak writing in Twilight to ensure that the movies did not flop.  I cringe when I hear criticisms she can't act.   Those people obviously have not seen "Into the Wild"  Her role has few lines, but for the 20 minutes she is onscreen that movie goes from OK to awesome.   It's what she does without speaking.  In that, I feel few actors can match her talent.   

I try think who else had that level of talent and I can think of Sean Penn.  Penn also had trouble with the media.   Even that part of Kristen has improved.    Seeing clips of her being interviewed this week, at least when the repeaters focused on the work, I witnessed a  mind that matches the physical beauty.   

Apparently she rubs off on others as well.   I would say her BF Pattinson is a decent actor and when you factor his musical ability he is pretty special too.  However this week he indicated that Kristen really helps him the understand the character of Edward.   

Many good works to come from Kristen.
