Fandom Friday

Fandom Friday #001

Confession: I’m not great at posting on the regular.

Not that this is really news, considering my sporadic blog activity, but, I felt the need to put it in print.  Same idea as dog shaming, except for me, because I’m disappointed in myself for not writing here more.

Which brings me to today’s post…

(Note the #001 in the title.)

Many bloggers I know do a Friday post where they share their favourites from the week or basically whatever group of things they want, usually in multiples of five.  So, let’s call this an homage with my own nerdy twist, shall we?

Drum-roll, please!

  1. In Retrospect: The Rocketeer

    Earlier this week, I shared a link to the Nerd Machine’s tweet about my first contributor piece for them, a retrospective of Disney’s the Rocketeer.  I’m pleased as punch to be a contributing writer and part of the Nerd Machine community, so I’m sharing the link again.  Read, comment, watch the movie, and weigh in with your own thoughts, because I’d love to hear ’em!

    (My fellow contributors have been KILLING IT this week, so poke around Nerd HQ and check out their pieces too!)

  2. John Wick: Chapter 2

    I’ve been waiting for this movie since the credits rolled on John Wick.  (Keanu Reeves is a fandom of his own and those that disagree are free to fight me…)

    I am so excited.  It’s got Keanu Reeves, a cute pitbull, Laurence Fishburne, and jaw-dropping action sequences.  My butt’s going to be in a theatre seat tonight, because I have no intention of waiting to see this flick.

    Sorry to the theatre employees, who will no doubt find my socks tucked under a seat several rows in front of me after they’ve been rocked off.

  3. Her Universe is back!!!

    I’m a little late to the party on this one, but in my defense this is my first Fandom Friday, so…

    Her Universe’s Stark Industries Bomber Jacket has a proud place in my closet and I love all the new designs they’re coming out with.  I’ve got my eye on their ‘Self-Rescuing Princess‘ shirt, though sizes are limited.  Designed in honor of the late Carrie Fisher (may the Force be with her, always), proceeds from the shirt sales will be donated to support mental health education.  Sizes are currently limited, but hopefully they’ll release more soon.

  4. The Expanse – Season 2

    Since I can’t express my love for the Expanse without using key-smashes that aren’t words and aren’t really sounds a human (even a human fangirl, such as myself) can make, I won’t even try.

    Just watch it.  Binge Season 1 if you haven’t seen it and jump into season 2.  It’s incredible.

    (Season 1 is available on iTunes and Space runs the new episodes on Wednesday nights 10e/7p)

  5. Orphan Black

    Well, Clone Club, the end of an era is coming.  The final season’s premiere date has been announced (June 10, if you want to mark your calendars), but it leaves plenty of time for you to catch up with Sarah, Helena, Cosima, Allison, and Rachel (and Krystal, Beth, and, OB showrunners willing, Tony) before season 5 drops.

    I’m waiting on Space to announce their airdates and eagerly anticipating the big OB panel at this year’s Paleyfest in March.

Stay passionate!
