3:43PM - serious, serious business
Fandom Wank is destructive to fandom and fans. - via metafandom
Especially: "I think that in their desperation to keep things going, they often post "wank" that actually contains interesting and intelligent stuff." Or: are we slowly turning into Meta vs. F_W (I certainly hope not).
Edit: Yes, I realize it's been posted to CW already; the comm rules state this is more a discussion community. Yes, I participate in FW and like it (mmm.) - no one's brought that up yet, but just in case. I think my main point of discussion here which I totally failed to articulate is does anyone else feel that sometimes the "wanks" are less wanky and more people just having intellectual discussion? I guess if I find myself intellectually interested in what people are writing about the whole thing is less of a funny spectacle. NOT to say "oh I'm snobby you can't put intellectual debates on FW", just that it really isn't as funny as pages of cat macros or MsScribe.
10:52PM - How awesome would this be?
Morissey: The Musical!
A 'We Will Rock You'-style musical based on Morrissey's songs is currently in the works.
The idea has been conceived by Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant, who both starred in 'Reno 911!' and wrote the movies 'Night at the Museum' and 'Balls Of Fury'.
Lennon told New York Metro: "I have an outline in my head, like 'Mamma Mia'- type musical but with them music of Morrissey called 'I've Changed My Plea To Guilty'. It's for a very diehard set of fans."
It is not clear when the musical will open.
