Crack_van is shutting its doors, after ten years. I am so, so bummed I can't even tell you. The majority of the fic I've read during my entire time in fandom I've gotten through crack_van. And it's the majority of my flist feed at this point. Without crack_van, man...I don't know how much longer it'll be even worth it to check lj.

God I'm depressed.

This came up in a discussion a little bit ago, and now I'm just curious. Without getting into a whole thing about what fans should or should not be allowed to do, I'm just curious what people do do.

Happy New Year, y'all! Instead of doing a real meme, I'm making up my own.

Year in Review
New fandoms in 2006 )

New things in fannish life in 2006 )

Fannish resolutions for 2007 )

And that's all the navel-gazing I can handle at a time.

My friends page has exPLODed!

Twenty-four hours ago, [livejournal.com profile] sga_flashific posted a Post Secret challenge. Since then, there have been 160 entries! Jesus H Christ! That's more than one every ten minutes! That means if I watch a TV show and check my computer every ad break, there are always new posts!

Oh, fannishness amazes me sometimes. Poor ces had to create a new community to control the insanity before atlantis fans starting fleeing like drowning rats.

ETA: In the time it took me to write that, fourteen more entries appeared on my f-list.

Joss Whedon killed the WB and UPN

Of course, if you read through the article, you see that what really killed them both was a new UPN exec deciding to go after the WB's core audience using Buffy as the starting point. Still, I think Joss should put this on his resume.

Argh! I'm so annoyed that the rest of the season of both Stargate:Atlantis and SG1 has aired in Canada. This means I keep getting posts about spoilerific fic for episodes that haven't aired yet! I know by the time I've seen those eps I'll have forgotten that I wanted to read these stories.

This must be what it's like to be a fan everywhere else in the world most of the time.

Aaaaaah! It's the end of the world!

SAN FRANCISCO (MarketWatch) -- CBS Corp. (CBS) (CBSA) and Time
Warner Co.'s (TWX) Warner Bros. Entertainment said Tuesday they plan to
cease operations of their respective television networks, UPN and the
WB, and form a network together called The CW.
ivyfic: (atlantis screwed)
Waaa! I don't want to be at work! I have too much good TV to watch.

Thanks to scifi's marathons, I now have the first half of season 9 of SG1 and season 2 of Stargate Atlantis on tape, both of which are starting new episodes this evening. And I have the fourth/third season of due South on DVD. And if that weren't enough, [livejournal.com profile] trinityvixen just lent me season 1 of Battlestar Galactica. All of this is a conspiracy designed to prevent my ass from ever leaving the couch.

But instead of being at home enjoying this fannish bounty, I have to be here earning a living. Life is truly unfair.

It's official. Smallville is dead to me. I just removed myself from the ClarkLex yahoo group. I'm now not in any Smallville communities. I'll probably still watch season 5...someday... But I just have no interest in being in the fandom.

Most fandoms don't end with a bang (though those that do are quite spectacularly horrifying), they end with a whimper.

Smallville - dead fandom walking.

I have found another reason to be annoyed with season 3 of Andromeda (besides the fact that it sucks). For some unfathomable reason, there are only two episodes on a disc. Two. Making the season 10 discs long. This wouldn't be a problem except I will be getting them through Netflix, which means that it will take weeks and weeks to get through it because of the added shipping time. Argh. I don't understand these things sometimes.

Why does a show that aired when I was a preteen and is as yet unavailable in any commercial release have annoying teenybopper fans? Where did they come from?

I've spent over a hundred dollars on eBay acquiring just eight episodes of seaQuest DSV. It's not a readily downloadable show either - I've looked. Though it's coming out on DVD in December, it has been almost completely unavailable for over a decade, and I admit, it wasn't that great of a show in the first place. I expect a fandom like that to be anemic, but I don't expect it to be overrun by annoying rabid fangirls.

Is Jonathon Brandis that potent?
