WHERE are they getting this stuff !!
You can’t help but admire their sass.
I’d long understood the slur on Wagner to be a mistranslation of the French, as ‘moment’ in French is ‘quartier-heure’, i.e. a quarter-hour. But since I can’t find that meaning on WordReference, I’m starting to suspect that the person who told me that may have been wrong, and that somebody - possibly Rossini although I have heard it attributed to other composers - did in fact say such a thing about Wagner, and that makes me very happy indeed (sorry Wagner, I still love Ride of the Valkyries).
This tree makes の sense.
Are you fucking kidding me.
Reblogging specifically for the Japanese character joke; acafanmom needs a smile.
We Didn’t Start the Fire - 50 Years of Fandom
password to watch: fandom!
IMPORTANT NOTE: I am neither Fiercynn nor Scribe - hence the link. I just felt it was entirely, entirely, completely necessary to share this with everyone, because this is one of the most amazing things that I have ever seen in my life. I just - fuck. I’m in tears as I type this, because this vid? Is not about a bunch of fandoms, it’s about what fandom is, it’s about a tradition that goes back a long, long time of people looking at stories and saying “here’s what I have to say about that,” and other people listening. Towards the end it gets into fandoms I know, fandoms I’m in or have been in, and that’s when I started crying, because - this is going to sound so ridiculous, but I can’t help it, because that was when I realized that I was part of it, this old often-problematic beautiful revolutionary thing. And then, the last few minutes, it gives us characters who tell stories in the stories (Becky Rosen!), it saysyes, you, this is your story too. It’s two-thirty in the morning, I’m crying, and I may not be coherent but I have absolutely no regrets. Watch this.
Wow. Wow wow wow wow.
For me, the best thing about this is the fact that it’s in a pretty chronological order. Because eventually I was like “It’s nice to see all the fandoms of yore— WAIT, THIS IS WHERE I CAME IN!” and then water was leaking from my eyeholes because omg, hello fandoms that I have seen rise and fall.
This is a fucking masterpiece of vidding.
I got teary when I saw Due South. <3
Omg so many tears, so many feelings.
This is one of the best fandom things I’ve ever seen.
The only thing that could make this better is more animanga fandoms, but as-is it is still GLORIOUS.
