Fannish to-do list

1. Figure out who I'm rooting for on MasterChef Australia now that Marion's been eliminated (probably Adam? though I don't know yet who got eliminated on Tuesday's episode)

2. Keep counting down the hours until tonight's Pretty Little Liars after last week's amazing (and very viddable!) cliffhanger

3. Find someone to talk me out of using "Like 4chan for girls" (source) as the title of my Symposium blog post on anon culture in fandom

3b. Figure out if I even have, like, a thesis or a point or anything useful to say for said blog post

4. OMG only 6 more hours until Pretty Little Liars! (Hint: that's enough time to catch up on the first six episodes if you haven't been watching)

3. Well, that might draw some links, but possibly not garner the kind of attention you want.

What do you talk! He might get his own guest-spot starring in an episode of CSI.

As the corpse, I mean.

There's somebody on ONTD who has this mesmerizing icon, which is just Kermit the Frog nodding to his left and then Bale nodding to his right, over and over again as if in mutual baffled congratulation. It is absolutely meaningless to me and yet engrossing! I don't understand it.

In all seriousness, when [personal profile] cofax7 refers to attention you might not want, pesumably she means 4chan, but I also think that the title you're toying with would be wicked insulting to fandom, anons who manage not to post home addresses, women, and people with manners everywhere. So don't.

Life flash before your eyes, indeed.

If you are in need of a pithy quote for a title, I recommend any of the golden nuggets to be gleaned from the anon meme itself. I've been copypastaing various as they befall my eyeballs, and I offer you:

"I find the fandom penchant for controlling, boundary-crossing families (see: Mitchell Clan) completely baffling."
Response: "Probably because fandom itself wants to be a controlling, boundary-crossing family."

"People seem to forget that sometimes they should feel ashamed of themselves." (This is from F_W, the Vividcon Bingo Wank, not the anon meme.)

Oh wait, the best quote yet!!

Actually, I meant to fandom. Comparing the anons to 4chan would enrage them, and frankly they would be justified in that.

It's annoying to (some of) the guys in LJ fandom and the girls in 4chan?
Though it's certainly snappy.

well, do you want to be like a journalist, or do you want to be accurate?

the thing is... apart from the fake essentialism, what bothers me in the (so tempting, so snappy!) title is that it makes it sound as though anonmemes are looking to imitate 4chan - which I'm simply not sure is true. you know?

WHAT NO! DNW D:

We should start setting up appointments and such in the summer, if at all possible. I'll be staying with a friend who's deeeeeep in Brooklyn, iirc, and she says it takes 2 to 3 hours to go to Manhattan from her place, so I doubt I'll do it too many times... But still. Planning some time, yes.
