Host Tour Announced Tomorrow and Socks For Mike

It was announced on Stephenie’s site that tomorrow they will give out details regarding The Host Tour.  Because of the massive crowds drawn to Stephenie’s Eclipse signings (1,000’s, some people with 25 books in a backpack in tow) the upcoming events will all be ticketed

Although we don’t have details on this yet, it is VERY likely that these tickets will be limited and will therefore sell out very quickly (my personal gut instinct says a matter of hours). Additionally, since it is The Host signing tour, it is probable that that is the only book that will be personalized.  So if you are looking to attend an event, make sure you get up early and see exactly what the directions are for the signing site you want to go to and take action.  Don’t wait.

Shameless plug here. The Lexicon is a free site for anyone to view, but with a minimum of 20,000 hits on the blog on a slow day, it’s not free to run.  To help us defray our server costs, chat room, PO BOX, and various other things that pop up from time to time, we have our CafePress store that features a variety of Twilight and now THE HOST items. I

Now on to something fun, frivolous, and…well…just plain goofy. In our recent interview with Mike Welch, the actor who will be playing Mike Newton in Twilight, he mentions packing and not being able to find any socks. Now, for those of you who read the interview, pretty much one of the first things you notice is the off-beat sense of humor Mike has. So, we had an idea. Why not have the fans send him socks so he’s never without?

So, if you would like to participate, drop Mike a note and pair of socks. You can order socks through our Amazon shop.  Here, here, and here are just a few samples.(OK, things I never anticipated, I’ve been asked his sock size. YIKES! I have no idea. He’s 5’10" so I’m thinking he probably doesn’t have small feet.)

  1. If someone will tell me his size, I’ll design and knit him a pair that will fit like a glove!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Oh, I also just bought a Lex shirt to support you guys!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. i’d give edward or jasper or carlisle or emmett socks but not mike

  4. (note to mike: your about to get an overdose of socks, lol i’ll bet you’ll still be getting them even after the movie is out too)
    ^^> anyways has any one ever been to one of her signings? how much did your ticket cost?

  5. Mm. I have some cool stripey socks. If only guys wore them…*sigh*

  6. DreamerTacy says:

    In response to your shameless plug, I bought something HEHE One Adult Fan Definition pink and white baseball tshirt coming my way!!!

  7. Instead of being excited about sending socks to an actor how about sending socks from twilight fans to people who really need it?

  8. Did anyone notice that on the CafePress, Volterra is spelled incorrectly both on the link title and on the shirts themsleves? It should be Volterra but it is spelled "Voltera" and "Voltora" respectively. If someone were to order a shirt it would come with the name misspelled. Is there someone who can be notified to make the correction? Oh and the socks idea is awesome! ๐Ÿ™‚

    At the time the graphic was made, there was a potential copyright issue, so we deliberately misspelled the name. It was a Napster Metallica vs.Metalica thing.  That issue no longer exists. A re-do is in the works.


  9. i want tickets!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    but sigh, proabaly wont get any…..

  10. I am sure once he receives all these socks, he will likely donate them to a worthy cause. Maybe he could pick out a pair or two and autograph them. Charity auction anyone? Maybe he’ll sign some for the Lexicon – that would help defray costs…in the meantime I need to order something!

  11. Insomnia says:

    Lol, ahahahahaha, this is freakin hilarious…I hope he becomes over whelmed with all those socks (laundry day is going to be interesting ;-))

  12. I realllly neeeed this question answered cause I’m to dumb to figure it out!!

  45. forbiddenfruit_13 says:

  46. okay… so socks? that sounds like fun.. i could just imagine his initial reaction… and then Robert just happens to be there… “Some fans send mix cds, some send flowers… yours, they send you socks… why i will never begin to completely understand!” lol… sorry… just a thought that occurred… love the idea… let me see if i can get my mom to give me a few bucks so i can send Newton some socks… lol… and then i shall return to the ogling of a certan bronze haired vampire… and maybe the civil war vet… lol

  47. mybrandofherion says:

  48. swissgirl says:

    Ha!this makes me laugh!that is so cool!
    by the way, Mike prbably wears about size 10 socks,im 5’10” too.
    GO MIKE!!

  49. Movies killed the reader. says:

    Hhhmm… A character that actually looks like the role he was picked for. Surprising. I’m sorry, but almost all the actors/actresses picked to play the vamp. family don’t fit the descriptions. I like the girl playing Alice, Rosalie, and the actor playing Emmet. And Esme’s body posture makes her seem like a good actress for that role, but she physically doesn’t fit the role. They are all supposed to be inhumanly beautiful, and well, most of them aren’t even humanly beautiful. The worst would be the actor playing Edward.

    My apologies to those I have offended, its just my opinion, and I’m brutally honest when it comes to things I’m obsessed with. Such as Meyers books. They are AMAZING. And I don’t want the movie to slaughter it.

    P.S. I want to see how much socks he gets. That would be really funny. I think I’ll send him a hat. Just to be different HAHA!


  1. […] Poor guy just got a speeding ticket up there on his way to film. That brought back memories of the time fans met Stephenie in Forks. Several people got tickets for driving over the speed limit. So, if you are driving on small town roads in the area, watch you speed. Well, whatever money Mike has to dole out for the ticket, he at least won;t have to worry that it will take away from his clothing budget. […]
