In case you didn’t see yesterday, SRP is shutting down. I purposely did not cross-post here, because I know that the fucktards on here would reblog and desecrate my post, and I wasn’t about to let them get one more thing from me.
It has come to my attention that there are some major assholes out there (shippers, namely) that were discussing taking my domain name after I was going to let it lapse, and redirecting it to a site that is against everything that SRP and I have stood for these past 2 years. All in an effort to make ME look bad still, even after all they’ve done to me already. Threatening my life, threatening my childrens’ lives and insulting them via gossip site forums (which fuck you, really, for involving MY KIDS, YOU ASSHOLES), threatening my job, stalking me on Tumblr, Fanfiction, Twitter, Nonsten forums (PRIVATE forums),Facebook, EVERYWHERE. All because I don’t hold the same OPINION that they do. And yes, it IS an opinion, plain and simple. When your lead characters will never acknowledge what you so yearn for, you still hold JUST an opinion on their status based on things YOU perceive and conclusions YOU make based on what YOU want.
Sorry for you, dickheads, but I’ve renewed the domain for many years now, and you will never get it. I’ve stayed quiet about this crap on my site for so long, I’m done with it. You are pathetic, disgusting excuses for human beings, and I want you to leave me the hell alone. My decision for closing the site has NOTHING to do with Rob’s personal life, nor YOU, though you seemingly enjoy being delusional in your thinking and assume that is so. Believe me, the decision had been made plenty before that, and Rob himself, nor the circus surrounding him, never factored into it. So get out. Get out of my life. I don’t bother you in your little playground of idiocy, and neither do my friends. We would never even consider doing something this vile, mainly because we don’t want ANYTHING to do with your moronic, sycophantic, cult behavior. So I will never understand your thinking, and frankly, I’m glad for that. Now leave me alone. I’ve got better things with which to fill my time.
After much thought and deliberation, I have decided to close down Strictly Rob. There is no one reason for this, but rather many, and it wasn’t an easy decision. Even as recently as two weeks ago, I had intended to keep it open at least another year. But sometimes life takes you on a different path, and you have to re-evaluate.
I’ve been through a lot of things the past two years, some good, some bad, some unbelievable. But overall, it was a good experience. I’m thrilled that we were able to bring you Rob-only news for so long, and that we were appreciated by many. Many of you know what I have gone through simply because I HAVE the site, and at this point, it is just not worth continuing. I would never regret having it through now, though. I’ve met many wonderful people because of it, and have seen many great things happen.
Our last day will be March 16th, as the hosting will expire on March 17th. I will put it out there that if anyone would like to take it over from me, they are more than welcome. I just don’t have time to devote to the site any longer, and it isn’t fair to ask my part-time admins to pick up my slack. I’m still a fan of Rob’s acting and will follow his career, but not to the extent of bringing the news to you.
I will not personally be going anywhere, just the site will be done. As you know, we have an extensive gallery, so feel free to scavenge that in the next two weeks. Unless someone decides to be a brave soul and take it over, when March 10th hits, the site and gallery will go dark.
Thank you all for your support and love over the past two years, and I’m sure I’ll see you around. If you are looking for another Rob-only news site that is actually ROB-only, check out RobertPattinsonAU.com and Robert-Pattinson.co.uk. There may be others, but those are the ones that are consistent and that I know well.
Thanks to all the ladies that have helped me over the past two years: Christy, Heather, Shannon, Rebekah, Kim, Allie, Rachel, Anna, and to Made for designing such a beautiful redesign. I’m sorry we didn’t get to display it very long :(.
From Grazia Daily:
Grazia Daily:Â Youâre working on Cosmopolis with Robert Pattinson now, whatâs that been like?
Denise Cronenberg:Â Oh, heâs lovely! Heâs such a nice, sweet kid. Heâs intelligent and smart; he was very brave to take on something like this because I think he was quite hesitant at first. But David is wonderful with actors and heâs a father of three, so he uses that. He and Robert had a wonderful relationship. It was an unusual film to do, very unusual. We had to do a rave, street fires and have cars exploding for this film! David and I decided what we thought weâd put Robert in. I then talked to Gucci who were incredible and gave us all his clothes. Heâs dressed from head to toe in Gucci from the tie to his socks! And we had no money, like really, no money so we could never have done it without them.
Canadian producers are riding a surge of industry buzz and critical kudos at the European Film Market with hopes that a slate of pics from seasoned Canuck helmers and newcomers will keep the momentum going in 2012.
At the forefront is Telefilm Canada, which brings its sixth edition of Perspective Canada to the mart. The federally operated film funder will showcase a selection of features for the market, including David Cronenberg’s “Cosmopolis” and Sarah Polley’s “Take This Waltz.”
“We’re in a very positive wave of cinema right now with the successes we’ve had internationally,” said Sheila de la Varende, director of industry promotion at Telefilm. “That creates recognition and anticipation in the marketplace for Canadian films.”
Over the past year, Canuck-funded productions, such as “Incendies” and “Monsieur Lazhar,” have been a hit on the festival circuit and with international orgs like the U.S. Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences — both films had been nommed for the foreign-language film Oscar.
Telefilm hopes that will bode well for interest in other pics, and has beefed up this year’s slate at Berlin. Perspective Canada will showcase nearly double the number of titles it has unspooled in recent years — 19 in total — which makes 2012 its biggest lineup yet.
