Twiday: It Takes a Naked Village

So, we've all seen the Details video right? And the pictures?

Ooooooh yeah.... *gazes dreamily at pictures that I didn't right-click-save to my hard drive. Because Details told us not to.*

Yeah. Thought so. After my drooling stopped and I was able to compose myself and really look at them, I have to be honest, my feminist sensibilities were starting to kick in.

Feminist sensibilities? What're you talking about? I think it just looks like we need to save Rob from the scary netted nakedness! And maybe feed the models.

Well, I was concerned about the whole "porn" thing going on in the photos. Don't get me wrong, they're hot - like every lemony fan-fic come to life (not that I've read any or anything like that).

Mmm... I have totally read fics like that. Want links?

*remembers The Office out-take you sent me - the one about Emmett* Uh, yes, please.

Anyway, then I read the Details article and found this Rob quote (which I love):

"But this shoot, it's kind of eighties nakedness, you know? If you look at porn in, like, the eighties, there was something kind of quaint about it, quite sweet—like this little naked community. The people who made it liked it, they had respect for it. Not remotely like the porn that's available now. No community in it at all. It's just everything, everywhere."
Ah - a little naked community. Yes, I do feel much better now, Rob, thank you. And it's actually quite sweet that he refers to it as such - meanwhile millions of tweeting twi-moms are taking that sentence and turning it into, "I want to have a little naked community with you Rob!" (Okay, myself included.)

Hmm... Rob thinks 80s porn was quaint and respectful? I guess if by "quaint" he means "less silicone and more hair" then yes, it was quaint. But, really, his description sounds more like a cute nudist town than a porno. You know, like a nice little place in Nantucket...

*cue bad limerick*

There once was a young lad named Robert
He was so pretty that our eyes hurt
      He drank beer from bottles
      And posed with nude models
Making all women's nipples alert

*claps for Meadow's amazing poetry skills*

So, what about you all? What did you think of the Details photos? (If you were able to think at all.) Were you inspired to write poetry too? *wink*


  1. I'm sorry but I keep find myself reading 2 words 'hard drive', over and over and...oh yes, luverly limerick Ms.Meadow.And Hellloooo there Rain!
    Now what was I talking about...?

  2. Rob uses an awful lot of porn references. Has anyone else noticed that? LOL I guess now we know what he does when he can't leave his hotel room.

    My main thought on the Details pics is that the ones originally rumored to exist, do exist, no matter what Gossip Cop said. We've already seen the one straddling pic. I think these were meant to set Rob apart from the 17yo Edward that he's been playing. I think they did that wonderfully.

    I hope this allows Rob to move in to his own a little more. But I agree, the models needed something to eat. Hubs said they had boy bodies with little boobs tacked on.

  3. rob in white pants, rob in white pants......

  4. I loved the photos (hot!) but I didn't like this thing that he hates vaginas...what is that supposed to mean? that's the kind of comment that I would expect from my gay friend...

  5. *standing ovation for Meadow's limerick*

  6. I'm gonna get kicked out of this naked-little community if I admit that I haven't read Details or seen all the pictures, aren't I? Yeah, that's what I thought... *grabs my Pocket Jasper and 100 Monkeys CD, and sulks off to Monkey Island*


Tell us what you think!
