So much for my plan to keep up with fandom after my last post from *checks*...a month and a half ago. Part of it is my course kicking my ass (through two accounting and one finance modules back to back. For a math-challenged, humanities background person such as myself, it's a little like what hell must look like) and part of it is comics continuing to eat my brain (I've assimilated a good three quarters of Marvel's collected input).

-I did try to quickly familiarise myself with comicbook fandom, such as it is, and drew the following depressing conclusions:
cut to spare you )

-[personal profile] ariadneelda pestered me into convinced me to watch Spartacus: Blood and Sand (though other appropriate working titles would have been: "Spartacus: Blood And Gratuitous T&A", "Spartacus: More Ridiculous Power Chords and Hilarious Manpain than Supernatural" or "Spartacus: So Annoying It Makes You Root For The Romans". I haven't hated a show fandom seems to love since another show which shall remains nameless (apart from just being mentioned two lines above), though I admit, mocking it is rather fun. There should really be more 'anti-fandoms' online, for people's snarky needs. Besides the anti-Twilight fandom, that is.

-The new DH trailer is looking good, probably mostly because it was blessedly Rickman-free (if I missed him, feel free to NOT correct me). At the same time, it made me kind of sad, because I know that when the second part comes out, that will be it for the HP fandom. I mean, canon has already closed, but I mean in terms of events creating any kind of fandom momentum. Hopefully the fandom will go on in some form, but still-end of an era.

-Note to self: never catch up with the big meta discussions before catching up with the flist. All this does, is remind you of the bad, headdesky parts of fandom and none of the fun, community one (seriously, the Haiti fic? WHAT THE FUCK. I actually yelled WTF when [personal profile] ariadneelda informed me of this revolting development over the phone, but reading the straight out of a 19th century 'colonialism, yay!' excerpts and the 'won't someone please think of the poor racist authors' were so much worse that what I was expecting. Why so sucky, fandom?).
