Support Biel Day

Unless you've been living under a rock, you know that the queen of Robp0rn videos is Biel. One of the first posts I did on my blog was dedicated to her and her videos. I even emailed her to ask permission and had a total fangirl moment when she emailed me back and said yes :) You can read that post here. She was the first YouTube subscription I ever signed up for. (That reminds me. How do you change your user name on YouTube?! Mine is still listed as sprtzmom1721.)

I hadn't read MotU before watching Biel's video dedicated to it. It made me want to read it. As you can tell if you look around, I did read it ;) I can't imagine a better endorsement for a ff author than to have Biel create a video for your story. I'm still trying to stop watching the one she created for Raw and Rosy. It's epic. Her editing skills amaze me. Go here and here to watch the videos on her YouTube channels.

Biel also has a talent for enhancing Robp0rn, which she shares with us on her tumblr account: 100% Rob Pattinson. Here are a few of my favorites.

So it was with much sadness that I read Biel's post.

100% Robert Pattinson channel will be closed, courtesy of Summit Entertainment.

My video “Edward, From Twilight To Eclipse [2nd Part]” has been removed by YouTube due to a copyright claim by Summit Entertainment. This is the 2nd strike I’ve received and the accumulation of 3 sanctions may result in the termination of my YouTube account. If this eventually happens, I really don’t think I will be in the mood for re open my channel.

I don’t even know how to explain how f’cking sad and miserable I’m feeling right now. After 1 month of editing work and 4 months since it was posted, my little viddie is no longer available and, what saddens me most, your more than 600 comments and more than 77,000 visits.

I’m not making money with my videos, I just try to share some love for Robert and his work. Thank you Summit for being so greedy.

G’night to everyone :(



Bleriana from The Cold Shower rallied the troops and has organized a Support Biel Day. I am proud to be a small part of it. Click here to visit her blog and read her tribute post, as well as to check out the dedications people are leaving for Biel. It would be a tragedy if her voice was silenced by Summit. Please go and show her some love.

If you'd like to show your support on twitter, here are a few avis you are welcome to borrow:

I'll leave you with this video by Biel called "Robert Pattinson 2004-2010... [more than just Edward]." This is what Biel wrote about the video:

Because he's making a wonderful work with Edward... but he is actually so much more than just Edward. Keep it real, Robert!

The same can be said about you, Biel. You make wonderful work with your videos... but you are actually so much more than just a video maker. You are so giving of your time and your talent, and it doesn't go unnoticed or unappreciated.

Keep it real, Biel!

This is heartbreaking.
scummit strikes again over what? a whole bunch of nothing.

Great tribute to her Lisa!

Pocket Edward said...

Thank you for your thoughts, Lisa. Once again, I agree 100%! Scummit just sucks.

Kelly said...

I am just amazed... you know, you'd think Summitt would have better things to do.. I mean I know the law is the law, but really? Can they not even see the value to their product in what she does. If nothing else, seeing her videos makes me want to see their movies even more...

It's a testament to the machine that has become Twilight.. and a lotof the times.. it totally makes me Miss Catherine Hardwick and her tiny budget and her blue hue film. I miss the time when Summit had NO IDEA what they had and were just glad people showed up to see the movie.

TwiWeasel said...

Has anyone noticed that when Scummit starts doing, say, filming a movie for the Twilight Saga...all hell breaks loose!?!?! They began filming Eclipse and this happened then, too!! I don't get it. Isn't any publicity good publicity?!?! And this is FREE to them! Gah!! Whatever.

@Biel...your vids are awesome! I could never begin to imagine how much time and effort goes into these amazing works of art and now Scummit is trying to squish you (and your artwork) like a bug!! BASTARDS!!

Thank you so much for participating Lisa!
And for being so quick with the avi's... Idk what I'd be doing without you!


HG from Trueblood Twilight said...

Great post Lisa. You know Biel is so much apart of my life, I categorize her with my first fanfic Wide Awake. She was at the beginning... and I don't want to see her passion, destroyed by Summit. Biel needs her own channel, like Perez Hilton! But either way, it really is horrible. It takes A LOT OF TIME to make a video, so my heart goes out to her.

Kelly said...

Yeah.. I'm totally jumping on the bandwagon!

Hang on Girls!!

Thanks for making the avi's and everything else!

I'm a little behind and out of the loop so I just got here. This is so depressing! Biel's vids are the freakin best, hands down! We will definitely support Biel over at TJA!!!!!
Thanks for doing this post Lisa!!!!!

As I told Biel over on Bleriana's blog, The Cold Shower, I hope that this helps her realize that she breathes life into the fandom - a fandom that never ceases to amaze me with its generosity and loyalty.

Thanks to all of YOU for breathing life into my blog.


Biel said...

Thank you very much for your awesome support. I'm still trying to recover myself after experiencing such a massive expression of support and affection. You all are AAAH.MA.ZING and left me I'm feeling absolutely overwhelmed.

The whole #SupportBiel day took me by surprise... how not? So despite I do know I don't deserve this much, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart, because you all made me mourn in silence the whole day and made me basically HAPPY!
