I have been paying much less attention lately. In part because of work. In part because of some new time consuming hobbies (FiFa11 on the Xbox 360, a new book series.) Even if the NFL season didn't happen, I now really enjoy what the rest the world calls "football" just as much & my TV stays glued to The Fox Soccer Channel. Hey, at least it's not FoxNews. I'll mention the main reason for my recent avoidance in a moment.
I am trying to limit this blog to discussions about Kristen only If you
have read my past entries, you already know why. You know we have new
standard when it comes to male haircuts. So I took a hair razor (with
the setting on #2) and commenced to emulating a certain someone's
boyfriend's haircut. I thought for certain I would have women crawling
all over me but it just hasn't worked out that way. Darn my luck. Lol.
I liked everything I saw of Kristen for both of her days at Comic Con.
She has gotten really good at this media thing. And she is still doing
it her way. What you see is what she is. There is very little, if
anything that is rehearsed. It all comes from the heart. She seems
abundantly happy and hasn't had to budge on her principles in dealing
with the public & media.
Breaking Dawn is looking like it will be pretty good. It's hard to
remain interested in that story for so long. All that remains is to see
what this group did between last Fall through the Spring. Hearing
Kristen talk about it reinvigorates that interest. Another director
now gushes over her talent, intuition, dedication, and technical skill
in the film making process.
For Snow White and the Huntsman: if there is one aspect I don't think
belongs it would be the title because of preconceptions many of us,
including Kristen, have when hearing that name. This movie looks way
more like "Game of Thrones," the book series consuming much of my free
time lately, than anything close to Snow White. These preconceptions are actually
I looked up Snow White on Wikipedia. This type of movie can fit into
that old fairy tale. I know Kristen will do well. And if Universal does a good job, we will have new perceptions about Snow White.
I enjoyed how Charlize promoted the movie with her "bring it bitch" line
at Comic Con. I like Charlize and I think she and
Kristen will enjoy working together as long as they aren't "method
acting." I have formed no opinions yet on the others involved. I think this has a chance of stealing allot of seats away
from some other huge movies next Summer.
One part of ComicCon that I really enjoyed: there were a few girls there
that recorded the whole SWATH panel discussion, yet some of those
cameras never left Kristen even while she was silent for several minutes.
Kristen seemed to sense this. These girls with video recorders had
probably stood in line for at least a day to be sitting in that hall and
they LOVE Kristen. On two occasions, I saw her look directly at a girl
with a camera and give this sweet little smile and wave. That
moment probably made the year for those girls. And I think Kristen
knows this. This was the right venue to connect with fans.
Kristen understands how these young girls (and some older) idolize her & she made a
point to make them feel good. I was very impressed with her. Again.
So I have been keeping my head buried in the sand lately because of the
never ending drama. Getting angry can sometimes serve a purpose if it
drives us into action. At the same time, I don't to need to experience
negative vibrations all the time. I can't relate to why people hate on
this girl. So when I see it first hand, my tendency is to fight it.
When I do fight it, nothing changes except now we have haters and an
When the negative affects me, its nobody's fault but mine. I was the
one dumb enough to read GossipCop's account of the SWATH panel at Comic
Con. Correction, not the article, but the comment section. I thought
it would be safe as it wasn't about her personal life. After wasting two
hours arguing with people who will always jump at every chance to hate on
Kristen, I kinda stopped paying attention.
Hello Xbox. I am very grateful for the new BWAN blog. Let the pros
fight that battle, though I would help them or others if asked.
I am not totally out of the loop. If something happens that I would want to know about, then I am told, thanks to @nycrk1
As for the name change of this blog: it was past time to do it. I never would have
used the 'O' word had I known what this fandom was like. I knew very
little when I started this blog in May, 2010. I never was
obsessed. I watch from afar and it's a very small part of my life. I
thought it was funny (to use that word) before I realized that the
clinical definition is applicable to some. I am still Enamored and
fascinated with Kristen and I probably will be for for awhile. She is one of
