Hello, and welcome to the flagship post for RA News with me, TheMissMod!
As you all know, there’s a lot of Rob news swirling around on the blogosphere, so it seemed only right to report on what’s being said about The Pretty. Every Saturday, I will be bringing you the latest Rob news, and asking you to comment on the stories. It feels nice to have a proper job here at RA now, as opposed to the random crap I used to post! The news desk is very comfy too!
To kick off RA News, we have our Rockin’ Rumours section!
This week, an inside source has told me there are rumours that HHH is back in London. We don’t know if there is solid truth behind this yet, but if this is true, then we hope he gets to spend some time with his family while he’s there!
Another rumour floating around the internet is that the Twilight cast are going to be immortalised at Graumann’s Chinese Theatre. Robsessed and Celebuzz have confirmed that this is in fact true, and a tweet from @EntNewsUSA earlier in the week said “Don’t get too excited but…R-Patz, Kristen and Taylor Lautner are in LA on 11/3 for their hand and footprint ceremony!”
This is very exciting stuff! It’s about time Rob got his name down in a few places – we’re just waiting for that Walk of Fame star now, Rob!
Those are just a few of the rumours circulating right now, some of the hottest in fact! Let’s see what you have to say about them in the comments!
The next segment in the RA News line-up is entitled That Was The Week That Was!
In this segment, we will look back at what Rob was doing this time last year, so let’s see what Our Boy was up to week beginning 15th October 2010!
– Heat Magazine printed this load of tat (credit to Darja over on Robsessed for the scan):
“R-Pattz is an artist. He is also sensitive, complicated, busy and a bit of a wally. How to express all of these chatacteristics in one go? Why, grow a big, bushy trampish beard, of course! Well, bad luck, R-Pattz. It’ll take more than stinky facial hair to stop us fancying you.”
It’s things like this that make me feel ashamed to be British. I mean, really??!
– Rob was voted the Ultimate Dream Male Passenger by British female voters, after a poll was conducted by MPH, The Prestige and Performance Motor Show. Not only that, but their chosen Robmobile was a Ferrari 458! Women want Rob to give them a fast ride…..it was only a matter of time until somewhere printed that information. Covertly, of course, but still!
Those were some of the main stories on this day in 2010! I’m sure there were loads more, but we don’t print them here. We are a respectful lot, thank you very much!!!
Now, the Rob Shipping Forecast.
In this segment, we take a look at some of the newest, craziest and coolest Rob-related items that could be delivered to your door!
With the release of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part I ever encroaching, the merch has started rolling in, and Hot Topic has a few items available already. They have a range of t-shirts, wristbands, stationery and some movie prop replicas, to name but a few items! If you’re interested in nabbing a nifty nick-nack from the Hot Topic Breaking Dawn store, then you can click this ‘ere link and get browsing: http://www.hottopic.com/hottopic/PopCulture/BreakingDawn.jsp
If you plan on buying something, tell us what item takes your fancy in the comments!
Now, Etsy is a great little internet store, and there are some great little Rob-related items on there! For instance, I came across this “Twilight Edward Cullen Robert Pattinson PDF silhouette portrait” by happythought, based in Edinburgh. This cool portrait is available for £7.79, and it would be a great way to disguise your love for HHH! Just pretend it’s an ancient relative….nobody will ever know!!!
The next cool item is this Rob bottle cap necklace by theheartofdonna. You can get yours for $10.00/£6.49. It’s really rather lovely – GQ Rob *sigh*
…and then there are items that can only be described as just a little bit disturbing. I’m sure you remember when JAG posted about the custom Rob knickers over on RAoR, and if you thought THAT was scary, then perhaps it’s time to set up camp behind the sofa. While perusing the interwebs for trinkets, I found this Make Your Own Body Pillow offer from RedBellaPanties.
Now, I’m not about to slag anyone off, make no mistakes. She’s making money off these products and that’s a great and innovative achievement…I guess it’s just a personal thing. Me and Hug Pillows have always had a bit of a dodgy history. Hug pillows are actually very popular in Japan, and the anime/manga fandom holds a lot of love for stuff like this. Recently in the UK, The Boyfriend Pillow came to my attention as well – literally a pillow with a shirt on and a fake arm, presumably made so that singletons don’t feel lonely. I can only imagine what they were smoking when they thought that was a good idea!
Body/Hug Pillows, however, are a different breed of monster. I tried sleeping with my Cardward once. It was not comfortable. As a reporter, it was only for research purposes, and I am damn glad of that because anyone who keeps that up must be brave…all those papercuts….*shivers*. Pillows would, of course, be much comfier. Not that I’m about to try one out. The only thing I think of when I see Hug Pillows, quite frankly, is this:
Buuuut I guess haters gonna hate! That’s it for today’s RA News round-up. Leave your reactions to today’s stories in the comments!
And now, the weather: it will be a mostly dry week for the majority of the fandom, with only a slight chance of light showers in the South of England amidst rumours that HHH is on home ground once again. Apart from that, The Drought is still very much in action, and it looks as though we won’t be out of it for at least a few more weeks, when there is predicted sunshine and heavy showers for most in the Breaking Dawn: Part I premiere area.
Have a good weekend! xoxo
