The Road Less Traveled

So many thoughts today.
Not sure where I should start...
Or if I should start at all.

I LOVE this picture.
It's probably one of my favorite of the 
Eclipse pictures that were 'leaked'.
And let's talk leaking pictures.
(that sounds kinda gross...)
Last week was overwhelming
with all the pictures that were released.
And of course...
DRAMA! CONTROVERSY! ensued.
Another day in Robertland.

See...
The Eclipse pictures were apparently
released to dampen the 'sting' of the Vogue pics.
Really? 
The Vogue pictures...
While very nice...
were pretty vanilla and bland.
Yeah, Rob looked great...
Emilie looked pretty....
Yada Yada Yada
but there was no sting.
I barely noticed them.


The Eclipse pictures?
Lots of kissing.
Lots of smiling.
Lots of Edward/Bella
doing whatever Edward/Bella do...
They made me smile.
They were pictures from the movie...
of my favorite book.
How could I not like them?
Why wouldn't I like them?
Well...
Apparently if you liked the Eclipse pics...
You were being unfair and disloyal
to Remember Me.
Really?
All the focus was on Eclipse...
and Remember Me was being overshadowed.
Really?
I couldn't just enjoy ALL the pictures.
No.
That would be insane.
I was supposed to only focus on one group
of pictures at a time.
Apparently people are not capable
of being fans of BOTH movies...
But I'm pretty sure I can handle it.
I don't have to pick one over the other.
Really.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference

...Robert Frost

I realized you were expecting a response.
But what it comes down to is this...
I don't give a fuck what you think.
So I'm taking the road less traveled.
You should try it sometime.

Bye for now.

I <3 you Rose! It is sad that something had to be said about this subject but I am glad that you were the one to do it. You always know the exact words to use and how to use them.

I'm so glad that I found your blog. Really. And do you know what's funny? Your favourite Eclipse pic is my favourite pic. Any your favourite book is my favourite book. I just smiled when I read that :)
Keep on posting, Rose. Day after day with the perfect words.

Thanks Rose. The first question that came to mind,and it's not directed at you, is "What Sting?" Who thought that one up? I had seen a comment somewhere by you yesterday that said you could support BOTH movies! Wow, what a concept. I'm right there with you. You see, I do love Robert Pattinson. Not in a creepy, stalker-ish way. But, there is something about him. Looks, of course. But what does it more for me is his intelligence. The Details article was a winner for me ~ it was the Robert I love. Some didn't get it ~ surprise. But they won't ever get Robert, not really. So, there may be some who can only support him as Edward, some who can only support him if he isn't with HER, some who can only support him in RM. Me, I'll be there for it all! Thanks Rose for your blog. You say it right, and I'm glad you don't give a fuck what others think!

I don't even think this is just a "Robertland" issue. It's a fandom issue. There are complaints like the Eclipse photos, there are complaints that Rob is trying to steal thunder from Kristen if something about him comes out the same time as something about Kristen. It's a never ending problem. You just have to move on and not get caught up in it.

Serene post, Rose. Seems like you have just set the ball down, probably a wise thing to do in the recent hectic posting climate.

I also love the three pics you chose. Given that Edward usually looks so posed in the Twilight movies, I couldn't help but wonder if these pics were taken between actual scenes while R&K were waiting for the cameras to roll. They seem to be laughing at private jokes, much like I imagine they'd do in private.

Very sweet. Makes me miss seeing them.

Rose: You know I looked at all the beautiful pictures from "Eclipse" and thought, I HOPE THEY PUT THESE IN THE MOVIE! They are always worried about too much love! Jesus, that's what Bella and Edward are about "love" please more love than action. Like the book please??? WHEN YOU LOVE SOMEONE (LIKE WE LOVE ROB) YOU WANT TO SEE EVERY PICTURE, READ EVERY ARTICLE AND SEE EVERY MOVIE HE EVER MADE AND WILL MAKE ! GET A CLUE PEOPLE. we ARE going to see "Remember Me" and "Eclipse" and I hope Rob and Kristen together before then. Grazie Rose for once again stated how we (ROB LOVERS) FEEL! ROCK ON !

A-F'n-MEN!

I hate the bickering within the Rob fandom. It's sickening. Yet it's like a car wreck, you can't stop looking. I am only sad for the fact that all the bickering done - does nothing for Rob or his career. Bunch of dumbasses.

Library Babe said...

Thanks for another wonderful post Rose. I am put off by those who think I can't look at pictures of Eclipse (which is my favorite book of the series as well) and Remember Me at the same time. I plan to go on opening weekend of Remember Me, Eclipse, Bel Ami and all of Kristen's upcoming films as well. I am a big girl, I can handle multitasking.

debbi said...

The trouble-makers are really letting their personal biases shine through. Early photos from Eclipse do not hurt Rob's other work. Publicity for Rob is publicity for Rob. Do they really think someone is going to see those photos and suddenly skip Remember Me because of them? No, the real issue here is that Eclipse is yet another movie with Kristen. The photos show Rob and Kristen together and some people cannot stand the sight of them together, even in character. So they try to dampen people's enthusiasm for the movie and guilt them into feeling like traitors. It's bullsh!t. Their negativity and nastiness just sucks the fun out of everything (and this should be fun!) I say we sit back and enjoy whatever Rob goodness comes our way.

Rose, love your blog, always. I agree with you again. I think the biggest problem about releasing these Eclipse pictures wasn't so much the timing but from who they came from. Alot of people doing the complaining were the same people who started an ugly blog against this person. The main reason I could see is because she loves and supports Kristen (Rob as well) and they are constantly bashing Kristen. She is being accused of feeding the shippers (a name I dislike). I thought the Eclipse pictures were beautiful as well as the Remember Me pictures. I just wish we could all get alone.

Love your blog! I think this illustrates your point.

The same goes for Rob and Kristen - why worry about what anybody else thinks? Life is to short! Which is also the message of Remember Me.

Hey Rose I just seen this video on YouTube under Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart(Flying Without Wings)OH MY GOD it said it all for me I have to have that song I LOVE IT And the way they put Rob and Kris together in it ITS BEAUTIFUL If you haven.t seen it PLEASE DO you well love it. Deb.

Rose, these three photos are my favorites also. I will support Robert in all of his films, just as I will support Kristen in all of her films. Why? I will because I am a believer also, of youth, individuality, uniqueness, shared passion to grow and create quality art, joie de vivre, and love. These two bring a wonderful genuine spirit, excitement and freshness to all that they do apart and together.

I'm sick of all the drama in this fandom. There once was a time when all Rob's fans would be excited for new stills, but now everything has become so personal, who released them, who's in them, extremes on both sides make it hard to enjoy anything anymore. I wish more fans were like you Rose. You say your opinion with sass and witt but you're logical and not hateful.

LOVE IT. As always.

Side note: I think I missed some of the Eclipse stills. Have they all been yanked, or is there anywhere you can go to find them? I didn't have either of the last two stills in this post ...

Thanks! And Rose - girl, as always, you crack me up. I don't like that people give you sh*t for daring to (*gasp*) express your opinions ... but it's SO funny to listen to you rip them a new one.

What amazes me is that you really do think you are taking the road less traveled. You don't want to see that you are indeed laying the path to NOT like Remember Me.. you are posting about Eclipse positively, you are posting about Remember Me negatively.. you may not feel you are being negative.. but your words regarding it have been nothing but negative. Saying you will see it because it is him doesn't make you positive. You are setting yourself, and people who follow you, up to not like the movie. period.

You have a right to your opinion, you can say whatever you like it's your blog.. as you say over and over... just call a spade a spade.

Don't believe me?.. how is this positive:
"The Vogue pictures...
While very nice...
were pretty vanilla and bland.
Yeah, Rob looked great...
Emilie looked pretty....
Yada Yada Yada
but there was no sting.
I barely noticed them."

The truth is... you chose not to notice them.

I feel sorry that you do not see the beauty in the Vogue pictures.. no they are no associated with with "your favorite book" from the Twilight series. But the truth is.. you are not going to like anything that doesn't involve Kristen Stewart with him. You can claim all you want that you love him... but your posts daily show that you love him with her.. only.

Sad really, because you are missing out on the best part of him, by limiting him to her only.
