Yesterday was a long & ridiculously stupid day where a local photographer (after I shockingly defended him earlier in the day on twitter) chose to drag ME and others names thru the mud...while KStew got called a bitch by an associate of one of his workers.
Of course if you are in the twitter world you know already about Kristen Stewart getting called a bitch by a female outside the venue. But that aside, yesterday had other things worth blogging about.
The day started for me doing a run thru the downtown core. When I got there, I found nothing happening anywhere. So I went to the airport for the much publicized Peter Facinelli flight. On his flight was also Ashley Greene. They arrived to a moderate amount of paps & autograph hounds. I managed to get 2 Facinellis, but Ashley declined requests, which was understandable as her hands were full with her dog carrier.
After following them back downtown, TO A NEW LOCATION. My friend & I were quite taken aback to see they no longer were staying where the rest of the cast were. For a week or so its been assumed but not proven, that some cast had moved out. Yesterday I saw for myself this seems to be true.
From there we did a tour of the area, before heading out to the Bobby Long show.
By the time we showed up, Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Elizabeth Reaser, Nikki Reed & Paris Latsis had shown up to the show. I had tweeted that Jackson was there. Based on info I was given, it turned out to be incorrect. Just those 5 seemed to be there.
When the show ended the staff of the Backstage Lounge went in& out all the exists to try & shuttle the cast out of. In the end they picked a door & the cast speed walked out. But didnt try hiding. Robert & Kristen came out first, with Kristens manager. They got in the back cab...which was a mistake, as they were boxed in by the front cab which was going to take Nikki, Paris & Elizabeth. They sat there for what seemed like an eternity, before finally being able to get away.
Rob did not try too hard to hide himself for once. Instead, he took to just leaning on his hands & had this sad look on his face that actually can make you feel sorry for him, despite the fact he has a life 99% of the people would trade for. I found it funny the cabby seems to have a similar look....or maybe he was watching the metre thinking "I hope we never get going" lol.
I didnt even notice till after the fact that Kristen was in the first pic I took. Both Rob & her were wearing baseball caps. A change from the hoodie wearing days they seem to usually have. Too bad that damn truck was in the way though.
The evening had little in the way of big moments, but it was an event that Rob & Kristen were at none the less.
After hibernating for more than a week Rob Pattinson poked his head out today.
He was at the set for Twilight Saga: Eclipse & he was spotted by the paps & fans alike. At the David Thompson Secondary School which is the set for some of the high school scenes Rob was there to film scenes & the paps were there too...and FINALLLLLLLLY, they got him. They got him good.
Photo company Splash News http://www.Splashnews.com got shots most everyone wanted to see, Robert Pattinson as EDWARD!!!
I will not steal the images, instead I will provide links to sites that have (likely) legitimately obtained the rights to the pics.
This was so big that other companies on the job were a bit deflated from seeing that they got the shots everyone was there looking for. There was a sense of "what are we here for now?". But they still hung on till the end with the approximately 100-140 fans that congregated on the grounds hoping to catch a glimpse of the cast members. The cast was well concealed behind more tarps & gates than I've ever seen for anything.
Sometime around 8 (I think) a cavalcade of vehicles left, including Robs, with his bodyguard in the front seat the chase was about to begin. I advised my friend to take to going the opposite direction of where they went since we had a bad angle to start. We caught up a few blocks later & followed him to his downtown residence, where several fans & paps were scouting the area.
He drove in, with nothing for anyone to see. About 2 hrs later. Rob, Kristen, Ashley & Kristens manager were seeing walking along a walkway on the property....we thought we had them. We went where it lead....but they never came out. After 20 mins, KStews manager came out, talked with 1 of the autograph hounds, went for a short walk & came back. We still had things tightly covered. Shortly after that, her manager came back out...this time on my side. We chatted, he told me the cast had given up on going out, and that he was just going solo....then proceeded to leave on foot walking away, not to be seen again.
We hung on for another 1/2 hr or so before finally pulling the pin.
Although it was a fruitless day in the aspect of actually GETTING anything, it was useful in that Rob sightings usually lead to more. Things went like this last time. Nothing, nothing, nothing, breif sighting, nothing, nothing, breif sighting, breif sighting, nothing, everywhere, everywhere etc. I am hoping its the same. I compare it to someone testing water at a pool or the ocean. They dip their toe in first, pull away, then try again, then maybe a foot, then soon a leg, and soon they jump right in. Today he dipped his toe back into the pool again. Maybe tomorrow it will be a whole foot. If anything tonights near close call makes me feel hes itching to go for a swim.
Maybe next time.
Friday was no picnic for me. It was my first day without a camera and I basically bitterly sulked about it. I am trying to remember going out Friday, but I cant. I dont think I did. If I did, it certainly wasnt for long.
As it turns out from talking with a few people, it might have been a good day to be there. Turns out Rob & Kristen went out in the evening and NONE of the paps were there to see it. They were scattered about going for either Zac Efron or various wild goose chases. Even fans didnt see them leave. All that is known is that they were seen around 6-6:30 heading in the direction of the hotel by 1 fan, and another fan got a picture with Kristen at a starbucks.
Besides the incredible miracle walk of K& R, there was little else that day. The typical sightings of Ashley, Xavier etc. It frankly sounded like, outside of that miracle walk by them, the day was a dull & boring repeat of most other days.
Saturday I headed out early afternoon. I hadnt been there too long when Ashley was spotted going out. I went in for an autographand she signed 1. She then went on her way & I was excited, because Saturdays are usually productive & it seemed like a good start.
From there the day dragged on..and on...and on. About 3 hrs went by before a Twilight cast member would be seen......it was Ashley AGAIN, this time she dragged Xavier Samuel with her. They came out of the front of the hotel. Walked around the building, back thru the massive courtyard, and back into the hotel. A total of 4 mins spent outside before they decided to go back in. Quite random, but it gave me enough time to snap off a few photos of them with the camera I have been lent by one of the local autograph hounds. People were suddenly revitalized, we were thinking a Saturday night would be alright.
We were wrong. That would be the last cast member seen. Not even ONE single cast member was spotted going out for dinner, to grab a few drinks, party, anything all night. They were covered off till after 11 PM and no action. I find it amazing, and suspicious. But the fact is, everyone went home that night without anything.
Sunday I spent VERY LITTLE time there. less than 3 hours. I heard reports of Bryce going out earlier in the day with Xavier. when I got there. One of the local hounds/paps here had what he thought was a big tip on where Jodelle Ferland was, who I needed & didnt think I would have a better chance....so I went where I was told she was. After waiting 15 mins with the tipster, his GF went in and came out & said it wasnt her. He showed me the pics he took, she was right. He had me come down there for some kid. Jodelle is 15, the kid he shot was no more than 10 or 11. I was glad he let me know when he saw someone he thought I might need, but obviously annoyed it was a failed venture. Back to the hotel I would head. When I got back it turned out the guys were planning an evening dinner somewhere, and I really didnt feel like going to it since I had other plans tentatively planned.
Just before I left, guess who was seen coming back into the hotel from Subway. Ashley Greene. Oh Ashley, why do you do this to us?? I trhink there needs to be a rule with Ashley now. She can only come out if she brings a different cast member with her each time. If this were to happen I am sure everyone would have seen everyone in the cast by now.
Anyways, a horribly bad weekend. Pics will be uploaded when I have more motivation.
Out of boredom, I did a google search for my screen names.
Usually I find myself talked about in 1 or 2 places. eonline discussion board seems to talk about me atleast once a week. Oddly, they dont always realize that I have two different IDs. My y2john ID & my canadagraphs ID have been quoted on the same page by the same person on the past as two different sources lol.
But my ears were literally burning with how much critiquing was being done with my recent KOL night blog. Lets see a few of the more classic snippets from http://robsessedpattinson.com in their comments section....this should be good.
sounds like a bitter paparazzi pissed because he didnt get the shots of Robsten close so saying stuff to minimize what it was."
OR, it sound slike someone who saw the photos & accurately pointed out that they arent kissing? I dunno.. Call me crazy, but when did accurately stating facts become a sign of being bitter?
Yeah you go on believing a paparazzo if you wish.(so now all of a sudden paps are good reliable people eh?) I for one very much doubt any manager would say anything about their clients' private lives to some random stranger, let alone an amateur pap. Come on lol That's retarted, they don't clear the rumours with the press, and you want me to believe her manager would do this with some random pap right? ok
This is the biggest HW secret atm and the answer to this is worth A LOT, there's no way a professional manager would give out that valuable answer in a random conversation. Canadagraphs was always anti-Robsten and now he was denied some good phots so he seems hella pissed. Any denial at this point would be laughable, they have looked more than friendly for a few months now, almost inseparable, it's got too far."
Hes talked to us before. We're hardly "random" to him for one. Two, it was a party. What do MOST people do at a party? Drink & talk. He did that.
Why would I be "anti-Robsten" as you put it. Its in MY best interest for them to get together, because that will sell MUCH better than KStew & Mike or Rob & random chick. Paps want them together more than any of you deluded nutjobs. Its funny, most people I talk to in person or on IMDB who have asked me my opinions on the matter would say I am pro-Robsten. Yet you say I'm the opposite...all because my most recent blog spits in the face of your fucked up delisions of who you think should be with who.
For the record. I am not "anti-Robsten." I am "pro-dont care, but will support whichever side pays best"
hilarious, kristens manager talks to a stalker, this guy is full of bs, he also said Nikki Reed was f-ck buddies w/ Robert and that Kristen was with Jackson at his hotel, not to mention
he "claims" Ashley was once sleeping with both Jackson and Ian (guy from lost)
grain of salt this guy is worst than the rags w/ their stories of everyone being preggers."
I see you are one of the many IMDBers who I criticized in the past for your horribly dreadful reading comprehension skills.
-I never said R&N fucked. I said N went to Rs hotel, left with R, came back with R, spent the night at Rs hotel.
-I never said K fucked Jackson. I stated K stayed at Jacksons hotel (which turned out to be only partially true, as she did go back to hers at around 4 AM, after we had left)
- I literally dont even remember any Ashley/Jackson rumours. You obviously got me mixed up with one of the other 103984 comments you inaccurately comprehended.
- I never said Ashley & Ian were fucking. Simply that they went back to the same hotel together arm in arm...and went shopping together.
For the record, it should be noted. I actually forgot to point out in my blog that Ms. saintly (Ashley) was seen by others being overly chummy to a celebrity at the party. Isnt she supposed to be recently caught making out with some other guy who is famous?
But I am sure I was wrong about that too....oh wait, no. I am right. Huh, imagine that.
i don't know if nikki and rob had a little something or not back when, but this guy claims everyone is sleeping w/ everyone in the cast,
that's why he was banned from IMDb
he would post lies and then pics would surface and he would backtrack, he's a pathological lier is all and is the worst type of stalker to have he harrases them."
Again, not once did I ever say anyone was sleeping with anyone.
I simply stated that things seen & actions taken by individuals.
YOU as a group took my statements & ran with them.
Also, I'm not banned on IMDB. Way to fail at making ANY type of point here.
Feel free to tell me what "pics would surface" that you are talking about that I back tracked on.

When I read the report, the only thing I ACTUALLY think the manager said was he wasn't worried about paps being in there and they were going to make a big deal out of nothing.
The other parts, are just the writer's inferences from his nonchalant attitude--that it inferred they weren't more than friends.
Just picture the manager having some guy bitching to him about not getting inside but others are in there and omg!omg! the paps are gonna catch something. The managers just trying to calm down some wacky person complaining to him. lol
When you read it in context, it really sounds like the only thing the manager offered was something like "well, people try to make a story out of nothing all the time.""
This moron actually thinks I was bitching at John AT THE SHOW. Reading comprehension fails apparently outside IMDB users as well.
I actually left out quite a bit from my blog that would connect the dots of the conversations MORE, because I dont see it as my place to repeat it all.
Lets just say, more was said than was posted.
Considering there was no less than 5 people there who took in the conversation, I think its fair to say it wasnt him trying to control my crazy lunatic rambling hysterically out of control body when he was saying all that he said.
I know of this weasel. He's also 'not very talented.' Best that can be said is he is a comparatively truthful weasel."
Someone who knows me that is calling me a weasel??
Well, thats got to be the pot calling the lettle black then,. since everyone I know would either not think of me that way, OR does this exact same line of work & thus are the same as me in that aspect. Way to insult yourself.

The first thing that is obvious from reading that account is that Mr Stalker sure sounds bitter. You came home empty handed? Awww...
Re. Kristen's manager's (allegedly) comment, well sounds fishy too. If they're dating (which I'm pretty sure now), what else would he say? Except trying to do some damage control. Of course everyone involved will try to downplay the relationship. Kristen's team (after the s**t she got this summer in the media, of course they'll try to protect her image as much as possible), Robert's (his 'available single hot guy' image is gold! Just read some of the harsh comments here to realisee how bad it'd be for him to be seen dating someone seriously) and Summit (being torn between the media attention it brings and their wish to promote taylor/jacob a big deal. And isn't it convenient to have taylor everywhere Robert/kristen go? If you can't avoid Robert/Kristen paparazzi shots, well just put taylor there too, at least he'll have some media exposure too. Hell, it might even start real life triangle in the media).
Anyway I seriously doubt Kristen's agent(or Robert's for that matter) would comment on their client's personal life, especially to a random stalker guy they've just met."
Well, you arent the first person to call me bitter. Probably wont be the last. But I'm bitter in general. So probably has nothing to do with this specific event.
Since you werent there, you have no idea how the question was presented to him. How his body language responded to it & what exactly he said. You only got my cliffnotes version of it.
Again, as explained before. I'm not all that random to them. We've talked on multiple occasions. Just because you seem to live in some deluded world where celebrities, their family, friends & staff must live in a protective bubble from the rest of the world, doesnt mean its real. I guess you also dont believe I have talked to Jackson Rathbone for 15 or so minutes either, despite the youtube video. Real people interact with celebs all the time, because they too are real people. Same goes for their staff.
All the insanity can be found here.
I suggest putting your brain aside when reading it to avoid causing it undue stress or damage.
I have said this before. I'll say it again. You might not like my attitude. I completely agree that I CAN be an ass. But seriously, grow some brain cells. Seriously!! The reading comprehension & outright refusal to believe someones first hand accounts of a situation because it might ruin YOUR deluded misconception of something is insane. Literally, insane.
Also, talking behind my back might seem cool to do. But remember, I sometimes might just see it & use it to publicly belittle & embarrass you in my blog. For every hater I seem to have, I seem to have twice as many fans. They too read the same boards as you.
Some good DID come out of this. You guys all gave me a good laugh.
A couple hours were wasted various ways by various people. Two groups sent people into the show. One got the shots of Rob & Kristen together, the other did not. We were the did nots. We agreed on a plan, we agreed on who to send it. It was side tracked & derailed by seniority, and it cost us. The senior member who is a staffer opted to go in & take his girlfriend with him, instead of sending in someone familiar with the building & a person who was working on getting them the info on where to find them. The guy inside with his girlfriend left before the show ended because he "couldnt find them" instead of spending that time still looking. Shortly after he came out, the guy who was voted on to go in got the text with the exact location...it was useless now, since our only guy on the job LEFT THE SHOW EARLY!!!!! At the time, we didnt know yet that the other company had shots of them together, but we were still quite unimpressed with the poor decisions of the staff member who went in.
There was a long, drawn out wait for the cast to leave. By this point, the vehicles for them had been pulled into the building & you were not going to see them leave the show. When they did leave, it was again a convoy of cars. The cast & followers all going the same way along 1 way streets. We again managed to be the front vehicle in the pursuit. They drove an extended route to get to the little hideaway bar no one had heard of prior called Chambar. Even us, who eat frequently across the street from it didnt know it existed. The route they took there was tricky & assured them (only because we didnt have the knowledge befrehand they were going there...and a little miscommunication with another person on moving out of our way) a clean entry with little to know paps or fans interacting. We finally got out of there after what seemed like an eternity. We hurried around to the other side....but it was too late. They were in. A couple shots & and some short video was had, but nothing great. We were again going to have to wait.
In the many hours of waiting, it was confirmed by our paps that the competitors had got shots of R&K close together inside the show & that they were going to be big. Everyone kinda felt like they had been kicked in the balls some. The pros gave up. Literally called it a night and left with a sinking feeling of failure I suspect. The amateurs, including myself decided "we've put in this long, we have to follow this thru now" & we did infact wait out the ridiculously long after party the Twilighters had with Kings Of Leon.
A funny side story (I wasnt there for it, but all the people out there confirmed it). Charlie Bewley showed up to the party quite late. When he tried to get in, the roid raging mentally challenged steroid monkey security guard for Kings Of Leon, that thought he was important because he was tending to a door to a club no ones ever heard of, refused to let him in. One of the guys out there realized who it was & asked him if he could take a picture, then did. After that, psychowannabesomebody got aggressively verbal & nearly physically violent towards the photographer. Charlie was fine with the pics, and more interesting, the neanderthal was showing no intention of letting him in still...yet were angry about him being papped. Finally a friend of Charlies noticed him & came and rescued him. I just found it funny the brain damaged roid monkey was not going to let him in, but was angry someone was taking his picture. That guy was without question, the biggest loser I have ever met for security guards for celebrities.
We saw Kristens manager outside & walked up & talked to him. He was quite socialable & pleasant & was quite understanding of what we do. The point of the photos inside the show was brought to his attention. He seemed less concerned about it than we were. He basically implied that they will always try to make a story out of nothing. Granted he is her manager and he could be protecting a client, but he seemed sincere when stating that theres nothing going on between them but friendship. But he also realizes how photos like these will be taken & basically had a "oh well" take on it. He was calm & not overly concerned by the potential these photos had. Seems he was right, because when I finally saw them, I saw nothing implying a straight out obvious kiss, like it had been translated to me earlier by the paps.
There was mostly dead silence thru the hours of waiting. One of the guys got a few shots of Rob & Kristen sharing a few minutes together out back thru a fence. But for the mostpart, it was dead silent.
It was sometime around 4 in the morning (maybe a touch earlier) when they finally came out as 1 group & jumped in a limo their staff had hired to rush them out. A few shots of them leaving were had but autograph chances were nil.
We chased to the hotel. The limo showed up, and they all ran in quickly, leaving Kristens manager out there to barter with the driver. The limo driver clearly tried to gouge on the knowledge that he was carrying important people. He claimed it was the "going rate" & he might have been right for all I know, but it did seem grossly excessive. In the end Kristens manager paid the price, and brushed it off as joking, but the limo driver didnt seem to see it much as a joke. I still think he gouged them. With that, the night was over & we were finally able to go get some much needed sleep.
Photos & vids from the night will be available later this week perhaps. I had 1 or 2 pics from the Water St Cafe arrivals run a few places. Not too sure if anything else has.
More than two hours had passed since the cast entered the warehouse for the screening. I changed cars for the next part, and we got itchy trigger fingers, and decided to drive around the building to check things out. Our timing of this was huge as it turned out. In our little travel we were passed by John, Kristens manager in a car, this was our first sign they were leaving real soon. So my buddy went & grabbed a new spot, 1/2 way down the back lane of this area. I decided to go to the front of the building to watch out incase there was a front door sneak job. We had visual contact with each other. It didnt take long. Less than a minute & he saw the garage door in the back start to go up, and I ran to the back & got in the car. Within seconds of me getting in, they were passing us in the alley & the follow was on.
A four vehicle convoy of Twilight stars & staff rolled thru the area, with us stuck right in the middle, and the rest of the paps in tow. As we made our way into the Downton/Chinatown area, we were forced into a position of having to pass the lead vehicle. We did so & kept a guarded eye on them. At that point we were on the road that would lead to GM Place & were sure they were heading to the Kings Of Leon concert....as it turned out, that was wrong & they went straight, instead of turning, leaving us no longer in the chase group. We now had to play catch up.
As they flew thru Chinatown & into the Downtown eastside, we followed on the next street over & the advantage of a driver with lots of experience in the area saved us> We pulled up to a corner in Gastown and they conveniently pulled right infront of us. We were once again following the lead vehicle & were unaware that behind us, the rest of the pack was held up.
The front vehicle pulled up infront of a restaraunt, along with 1 more. We were forced to drive around them & hastily pulled to the side of the street & realizing autographs would be impossible, snapped a few shots of them going in. It was Rob, Kristen & Taylor. No other paps were anywhere to be seen. Seconds later they started to show up, and a minute or so later the last of the vehicles & paps showed up. It was too late for any of them to get them going in. We were the only ones. We didnt geta lot of shots, but we got the only shots.
I never noticed exactly WHO all showed up. But there was about 6-8 cast members in the entourage. Besides those 3, Elizabeth Reaser, Nikki Reed, Ashley Greene, Kellan Lutz were definitely in the group & I think I saw Xavier Samuel as well, but was not as certain.
Inside the Water St Cafe they ate & drank for well over an hour, the restaraunt actually put up curtains in the upstairs area so they could eat without hassle. Funny enough staff of the restaraunt or the crew kept coming to the window & snapping shots of the paps & hounds. Unaffected by it, they simply shot back.
Eventually the vehicles returned, and it took less than a minute for them to orchestrate the get away. They pulled Rob & Kristens vehicle into the alleyway, leaving the rest out on the street. Everyone went in & around R & Ks vehicle, while the rest got away practically un-noticed. Kristen bolted in, Rob immediately after. Again, everyone scrambled to their vehicles & again, the follow was on. A cavalcade of celebs & photographers were en route to their next stop.
Less than 4 minutes later the answer was known. They showed up to the back of GM Place. They were escorted into the gated security patrolled loading bay, and were positioned as close to the door as they could get them & rushed quickly into the venue.
Once again, a waiting game would happen. (Part 3 coming soon)
This day was so long I dont think I can squeeze it all into 1 blog without it looking like a novel...which I have been told by some my blogs already look like.
My day started with a late start. I didnt expect the mornings to be busy, so I took my time & didnt get there till about noon. I got there to find out Ashley Greene was out shopping. All the paps were off on that chase, leaving the hotel guarded by merely me & a couple fans. It was quiet, then I went to Subway & found Taylor Lautners dad there. I didnt speak to him, but he was clearly ordering enough that I got the impression TL wasnt coming out anytime soon. His dad left, and when I came out of subway myself, I found him chatting with one of the local hounds. He then told us not to expect much today, that it was going to be quiet there & that they were all in "lockdown". At the time, we didnt know what he meant...but we got the message, which was "dont expect much here today".
Shortly after that I saw the tweet from a twilight fan that stated that Edi stated at a twi convention that the cast was apparently watching New Moon in Vancouver as he spoke. So we concluded thats what Taylors dad was referring to & figured we had an hour or more to kill. Myself & 2 others decided to go to a different hotel for a bit & see if we could see some non-Twilight stars. When who should we see??...a Twilight star. Kellan Lutz showed up there & went inside for a couple minutes. When he came back out, he had 2 bags, 1 that was like a carry on luggage bag, the other a shopping bag from somewhere. He posed with a fan for a pic, then hopped in a cab. There was no chance for an autograph, but I did snap a few pics of him leaving (will upload later when time permits...probably Monday).
From there we decided maybe they werent watching it right now & headed back to Twilight HQ. Awhile would go by, with nothing of note, then a couple small signs of action happened. Nikki & Elizabeth left, in a production vehicle. Taylors dad went into the parking lot, we assumed to go get the rental car he had, and 1 or two other small things were happening that made us think the movie (we still were under the assumption that it was on right then) was over. When from out of nowhere a vehicle left.
It was full. The only thing I knew was the guy in the front seat is a guy we have seen shadowing Rob a lot since he got here, and in the center of the back was Kristen. Two cars followed in pursuit, and my friend & I decided all too late to try & follow. We never caught up to them, but were given the heads up of their final destination.
We got out to a warehouse area of West 2nd avenue to a place with an underground secure parking lot that multiple vehicles had gone down into. NOW the cast was about to watch the movie. It was 4 in the afternoon & they were JUST starting their screening. There was 7-10 people waiting outside there. No less than 4 agencies represented. Everyone knew nothing would be had of them leaving, but what they were doing was waiting to see where they would be next....and thats when things started to pick up (for part 2 later today).
I occasionally argue with inanimate objects, but I usually win. So its all good.
