Meanwhile, Tour of Terror III is about to culminate in the Eclipse premiere in LA on Thursday. The last I heard, the tent city comprises 350 fans (no drugs, alcohol, cooking, or amplified music, plz), and
@emokidsloveme: Paging @cleolinda RT @ktla: Eclipse Premiere: Fans Form Tent City Outside Nokia Theater http://bit.ly/d1Kk78
@cleolinda: @emokidsloveme And it's on Thursday. THURSDAY! Two more days of this!
@emokidsloveme: @cleolinda Oh damn, it's Monday. These people are DEDICATED, to... something.
@cleolinda: @emokidsloveme I expect civil unrest by Wednesday evening. Windows smashed, trash cans on fire, sparkle running in the streets.
@rustincolor: @cleolinda http://bit.ly/dprK8e RIGHT OUTSIDE MY WORK! i need to bring my camera tomorrow & take pics. i'm scared to come in thurs.
@rustincolor: @cleolinda the ones camping out aren't here to see the movie. the movie pass was $1000 for the la film fest. they're here for the red carpet
@cleolinda: @rustincolor Yeah, I'm a bit perturbed by the $1000 film festival thing. I'm pretty sure cannibalism will set in by Thursday morning.
And then I felt mischievous and decided to troll Twitter.
@cleolinda: They're still camping out to see a better movie than Phantom Menace. YEAH I SAID IT. #ducks
My favorite part about this (admittedly inflammatory) statement is that it is genuinely hard to argue.
@ant122992: @cleolinda Ohhhh man. That's a low but accurate blow.
@NoelCT: @cleolinda Only sad, sad individuals in Jar Jar Binks underoos will disagree on that PHANTOM MENACE point.
@GeekToMe: @cleolinda Uh....no. #blasphemy #turninyourgeekcard
@GeekToMe: Just revoking geek cards everywhere RT@ant122992: @cleolinda Ohhhh man. That's a low but accurate blow. #buffyhasabettervampire
@geekgirldiva: @cleolinda @GeekToMe Dude, c'mon. What's worse? Jar Jar stepping in poop or Sparklepires? Search your heart, you know it to be true.
@cleolinda: @geekgirldiva All I'm saying is, Eclipse is gonna have to be Plan Sparklepire from Outer Space to be worse than Phantom Menace.
Meanwhile: The Associated Press has asked me to state whether I am Team Edward or Team Jacob. It looks like you will find out on Thursday. I think I did a better job of answering than Emma Roberts did, but I am prepared to stand my ground rather than be run off Livejournal, so.
A little afternoon linkspam:
Watch Seth Rogen in the trailer premiere for 'The Green Hornet.'; First images from The Green Hornet; What Happened To Badass Action Heroes Who Could Actually Win A Fistfight?
First Official Look at the New Conan the Barbarian.
Entertainment Weekly: "The 'Footloose' remake finds its star. (They were not in fact holding out for a hero. Just a newcomer.)"
M. Night Shyamalan casting next project: Can he get his mojo back?
Reese Witherspoon on the set of Water for Elephants. HORSIES! One of the things I really envy actors is that they get to learn to do all kinds of awesome stuff that most of us will never get to do. I would kill to have, say, Orlando Bloom's skill set.
CARTER BEATS THE DEVIL MOVIE YAY
And, finally: The National Pork Board demands that ThinkGeek stop using their slogan to sell unicorn meat. "We'd like to publicly apologize to the NPB for the confusion over unicorn and pork--and for their awkward extended pause on the phone after we had explained our unicorn meat doesn't actually exist."
