Shout Out Sunday

This was a weird week. The Rob Drought clearly has the "big" blogs scrambling for material – lots of repeat information. There were special occasions to celebrate, like Twitarded's first anniversary and Latchkey Wife's 150th follower. JJ and STY also announced the dates for their our trip to FOORRRKKKSSS!!! Mrs. P diagnosed our blog afflictions and provided the very best medicine...laughter, had Rob help with a TwiBite Challenge, and had her first Q&A. The sistas at Twired were busy spreading Jacksonitis, and RobMusement helped us find Rob.

And unless you live under a rock, we all know that Rob took part in the Hope for Haiti Now telethon, and Kristen made the rounds at the Sundance Film Festival. Yes, George Clooney got BEARded Rob to come out of hibernation.

I would also like to thank Anna Kendrick. Her connection with George and Rob had to have played a big part in making this happen. Mama Cougar at The Cougar's Den tipped me off on twitter that they were streaming Robert Redford's Q&A live at the festival. He was casual cool and even dropped the f-bomb at one point, which was a trip. Unfortunately, his makeup artist must be on the staff of the Twilight Saga makeup crew because his face was way too pale, especially compared to his real skin tone.

Speaking of the f-bomb, I subscribe to alerts from a new blog dedicated to Bel Ami. They posted a video of Rob talking about Bel Ami during Cannes. He's clearly psyched about this movie. So much so, that he dropped the f-bomb while talking about it. They hadn't noticed it until I commented on it. They have since updated the post. So glad I could bring them down to my level. LOL!

So we finally get to see Rob (and Kristen for us IGiveACrapsten fans), and what do we do? We hate on the beard, the weight, the clothes, the hair, the way he delivered his lines, the way she spoke in her interview, etc.

I stumbled onto this video over at Latchkey Wife's blog just this morning. How ironic. A lot of us know K_InTheFlo through Twitarded post comments and twitter, but I had no idea she made videos, too.

I'm going to play the role of Alice here and say, "Show me the love." So let's move on and think happy thoughts. Here we go with Shout Out Sunday links, starting, as always, with Twitarded and TwiBite.

Twitarded – First Anniversary, Random Thoughts and FFFOOORRRKKKSSS!!!

TwiBite – Rob's first TwiBite Challenge, Bite Pack afflictions, and Mrs. P's first Q&A

Twired – Three strains posts of Jacksonitis (which I now have btw)

Ramblings of a Latchkey Wife – 150 Followers Milestone and FFFOOORRRKKKSSS!!!

RobMusement – Fun "I Spy" Rob post. Hope she does more!

Bel Ami – New site and video.

Spooning in Forks – Twilight DILFs. Need I say more?

For the Love of RPattz – helping us with the Rob Drought

True Blood Twilight – post title fits for today, "I Just Wanna Show Love"

Twilight Junkies Anonymous – I love stories of people trying to explain the Twi/Robsession.

Tigerlily's Tirade – RL vs. Blogger Life

Twilightish (just funny in light of today's post)

Finally, it's not too late to give to Hope for Haiti Now if you haven't yet. Ang at Why Not? Twilight, RPattz and me did an awesome job outlining the various ways to donate. Click here.

Happy Sunday!

Ok...I'm not sure if I'm capable of purely happy thoughts but I'll try.

Thanx for the shout out. Last week I was way too deep into CW&IA to say anything. As always your Shout Out Sunday included great blogs I love along with new ones to check out. Keep spreading the love sista.

KinTheFlo said...

hey lady...First of all I LURVE HARD those Black & White photos of Rob ..and the kiss.. B&W can be sooooo sexy. Nice choice.

Yes the Hate can be strong and catty in the fandom. I'm Team Kristen and just had to make that video way back when. I've made a few but I have to be really inspired..and New Moon Edward inspired me to curl up and die and that's about it. LOL.
I've had such a stressful busy 2 moths and I seem to be only good for concentrating 140 characters at a time. So I tweet and dream of when I actually read blog posts. I just started today!...about an hour ago I went over to LKW..and commented..then I saw your tweet. so here i be. good timing.

I loves me Robert Redford. I'll be sad when his number is up.
I want more sundance pics..and where is the link to that Bel ami blog? lease.

Thx for posting the video:)

Thanks for the shout-out (you always make me feel special and not in the short-bus kinda way) and for encouraging everyone to lighten up! Sheesh - the dude's hardly had a day off in how long and now he wants to order some extra goodies from room service to share with his lady love (plus he takes a break from shabing) and everyone freaks the eff out. All I can say it that if I was standing next to him, I imagine he would look pretty svelte, so imma keep my fat mouth shut. And kristen is still a teenager (who is thankfully not some vapid twat) so let's cut her some freaking slack, too (can't believe i'm all k-stew-defend-y, but really...).

: )

going to go check out some of those other posts now - great list!

Hello Lisa.

Thank you for the shout outs...and for all the awesome posts you listed above.
I loved the way Rob delivered his lines, I can still hear "dot org" in my head.LOL!

You chose a perfect video to make your KStew point. Nicely done. ;-)

I'm off to stroll the blogs!

Isabella MARIE Cullen said...

Awwwww! Thanks for the shout out!!!! I'm so glad there are other people out there who understand me and my total insanity. LOL Thanks for the heads-up on the Bel Ami site. I'm getting ready to check out right now.

Gwenward said...

GO VIKINGS! that is all...for now ;)

Honolulu Girl from Trueblood Twilight said...

Thank you Lisa for the shout out! *Mwuah!* I am flipping freaking out right now because I finally figured out my software and finished my first video and then YOUTUBE had to be a dick and not post my video. Argh, I’m reloading it. &@$%! I hate you youtube auto robot!

Thanks again Lisa.

Nooooooooooooo! The Vikings lost :( *sigh*

@mmMoxie - Thanks for trying for me :)

@TwitardedMom - You're welcome and I will try to keep spreading the love.

@K_InTheFlo - I'm glad you stopped by. The link to the Bel Ami site is in the list of links in this post. I will send you a DM on twitter with the link, though. I'll also send you the link to more Sundance pictures. I watched your video a couple more times when I got home. That song is so bad ass and your timing of it with the pictures and the text just works.

@STY - I'm glad you got where I was going with the post :)

@Mrs. P - Thanks super bloggy BFF. xxxooo

@Isabella MARIE Cullen - You're welcome. It's definitely nice to know you're not alone.

@Gwenward - Me so sad!

@HG - You know I luv ya, and I'm so excited that you have your first video with the new software done!!! Hope YouTube starts playing nice and you have it uploaded soon.

Jelena @ Twiholic said...

Hm, I didn't realize that offering constructive criticism was hate. I never viewed my comments that way. I've offered nothing but love to both Rob and Kristen in the blogosphere, and one time I make it publicly known that there are some things that bother me, it's when you decide to make this "don't hate" post. *rollseyes* :p

@STY - yes, Kris is a teen, but still, that doesn't make me hate that hair any less. Hm, okay, I guess I do hate. But really, is there any other way around this?

WastingTheMorning said...

Thanks so much for pointing out Rob's comment at the end of the video for us at BelAmiFilm! He really does sound excited about this one. I don't think I've ever heard him as pumped as he is about Bel Ami!

17foreverlisa said...

@Jelena - Don't be mad at me! This was not aimed at you. It was aimed at Mrs. P. LOL!!! I kid. I kid. There was SO much stuff floating around the internet about Rob and Kristen's appearance; every blog was talking about it. I just wanted to add my two cents worth on my blog. I wasn't looking for that video that K_InTheFlo did, either. It literally fell into my lap while I was looking at past posts of Latchkey Wife's because she was celebrating her 150th follower. It just fit my mood and it's a kick-ass song.

@WastingTheMorning - I love your BelAmiFilm site and hope all of my followers and Rob's fans find it. SO excited about this film. And I about blacked out when you mentioned "him" and "pumped" in the same sentence ;)

Jelena @ Twiholic said...

@Lisa - I am not mad at you. Not in the slightest bit. I haven't even watched that video yet (I do most of my blogging while at work, and thus can't play videos). Will do so now.

Jelena @ Twiholic said...

Lisa, I'm sorry again for being a horrible bloggy friend today. I really screwed up, and now this "express yourself" bull has come to bite me in the arse. I hope you forgive. I have written a more eloquent apology to you in form of a reply on my blog.
Well sheesh, I sure as hell am glad I ain't Mrs.P. watching that video, LoL.

17foreverlisa said...

@Jelena - We are counter commenting on each other's blogs :) There is nothing to forgive, and you do not need to apologize. We are moving on. There is talk of Rob's ass going on over at BelAmiFilm and penises at is good!!!!!

Jelena @ Twiholic said...

@Lisa - diplomatic, and mature as ever. I when to BelAmi site, but am scared to go back because the site has spoilers, which I absolutely cannot stand.

17foreverlisa said...

@Jelena - Ok. You are definitely going to have to apologize for that comment, because you just called me mature, which is the same as calling me old, and I resemble that remark! LOL!! I hadn't even thought about the BelAmiFilm site from a spoiler standpoint having already read the book. Duh.

Jelena @ Twiholic said...

Lisa - LoL. Our spelling mistakes are horrid, btw. Haven't read the book, so I won't go. But, I know you said you won't bitch about the cast, the only one that bothers me is Uma. She's so yucky to me. Others, I adore.

17foreverlisa said...

@Jelena - Yes, she is definitely what started the bitching for me.
