Yoinked from i_am_lane. This whole meme begs the question, what is a fandom? Anyone got an exact definition for me? Should I modify this based on people's definitions? Should I take from my interest list? My list of favorite movies? My TiVo season passes? What makes one a member of a fandom? Is it watching every episode, going to cons, or just loving a series or thing?

And for that matter, aren't Willow, Hermione, and Lisa Simpson all the same person at different stages in their lives?

Okay, 'nough chit chat, here's the actual meme:

1. Current fandoms:

  • Harry Potter

  • Anything by Joss Whedon

  • Simpsons

  • Education

  • Zelda

  • Nip/Tuck

  • Lost

  • Desperate Housewives

  • Livejournal

  • Icons

  • Indigo Girls

  • Dar Williams

  • GOOD Movies

  • Politics

  • Sociology

  • Cats

  • Too many other peripheral fandoms to count. TiVo makes too many of them possible.



2. First fandom ever:

I'd like to say the X-Files, but it's more likely Star Trek: The Next Generation. Yes, I've always been a nerd.

3. My most recent fandoms:

The newest of the meaningful list is probably Harry Potter or Livejournal.

4. Five fandoms that mean a lot to you:

  • Harry Potter.

  • Joss Whedon.

  • Livejournal.

  • Cats.

  • alienus lovin'. (If i_am_lane can do it, so can I!)



5. Tag five people to put this in their journal.

And, I know he'll never do it because he hates these things, but I would like to see his answers anyway, zegonian_revolt.

On that note, I do not feel well, I am going to go lay down.
