The Fangirly Diary of a Geek Girl: A place in the world for pulp!

Good morrow, fellow geeks! This week has been curiously fandom packed, as in I’ve found myself lurking around some blogs about the nature of fandom and why it’s fun to enjoy media that isn’t exactly high art. Anyway, onwards!

SATURDAY

Anastasia is coming to Broadway [1]! Maybe. Of course, I mean an adaptation of the 1997 movie, which I loved despite it being kinda silly. Angela Lansbury may even reprise her role from the movie! Yay!

Tom Hiddleston is active again and shared a wonderful pic of him in Loki hair from a year ago, back when Avengers was being filmed on Alburqueque!

As you can imagine, the social networks exploded and hours later there were fanart and memes about it.

My other English fav was active too… or rather they kept talking about him. You see, Star Trek sequel writer Alex Kurtzman called Benedict Cumberbatch a genius and brilliant and “you could enjoy him reading the phone book” [1]. Woah, someone’s got a mancrush~

On the subject of Benedict, check this video in which our Posh Alien Prince talks about taking fashion advice from his fans:

They give me advice on what to wear, I’ve been, I mean, you should ask them, they’ve as a group, one of them, and then it sort of went around as an agreed principle about me, that I uh, used to get out of bed and dress blind in the morning, so I’ve tried to put a bit more effort in of late, to appease that comment, but um, yeah.

Oh, Benedict, are you talking about this Tumblr?

So there’s a short documentary by Davis Factor with Robert Downey, Jr. and Susan Downey called New Life, and it’s about their life and home weeks before baby Exton was born. It’s kinda appropiate because tomorrow is Father’s Day!

Yeah, sorry for the Russian subs, but the video keeps getting deleted~

    It seems nowadays people are REALLY into badly written fiction as long as it’s a wee bit different than what’s been published and promoted to the masses. I mean, if you wanna read fanfic-like smut, do yourself a favor and go to any number of fanfic writers and give them your patronage. They write much better and their stories are at least more accurate regarding the sexual acts. It’s sad that people will just hop on any dick that seems shiny and new. (excuse my language… sorta angry about this whole 50 Shades of Grey thing).

      @Camiele, Don’t worry gal. It made me curse too. I mean, the hell! That piece of trash book started as damn Twilight fanfiction! Like I said, if I wanted fanfiction porn, there are tons better written. I bet there’s even better Twilight fanfic porn!

      @Camiele, “nowadays people are REALLY into badly written fiction” – It’s time I get to write my book then. LOL Actually, I was writing a story for a comic… but my comic-book-fan-friend/graphic-designer pal bailed on me.

      • Camiele says:

        @amy, O.O LAME! I hate it when people bail on you. But you’ll find someone to help you out! Anyway, I guess I need to just not complain about it. Just read the stuff I like and ignore the stuff that gives me headaches.
