This pretty much sums up my thoughts on Twilight. I hear so many fans are upset about Breaking Dawn that they are returning the book en mass. Too.funny.

This article somehow puts into words exactly why fandom is crazy and how one should approach it, especially if you like the more unconventional / "unpopular minorities" aspects of a show: Your Friends Are Not Watching the Same Show You Are.

Hi. It occurred to me that some of you (Maree) don't really know what I'm talking about when I make TV/movies/entertainment news posts, because I use fan termionology. For that I apologize and so, here's your crash course on Terms to Know When Navigating Fandom.

Fandom Lexicon. Vague spoilers for Veronica Mars, HIMYM, Grey's Anatomy, Harry Potter, Stargate SG-1, Chuck, Bones, Pushing Daisies, the Office and Lost )

Any questions?

JKR outs Dumbledore from the closet.

She was asked by one young fan whether Dumbledore finds "true love."

"Dumbledore is gay," the author responded to gasps and applause.

"Oh, my god," Rowling concluded with a laugh, "the fan fiction.


Oh the fanfiction indeed.

ETA- And look, only 2457 responses in the 12 hours it's been up on [livejournal.com profile] ohnotheydidnt. Heehee. I love how the responses fall into the two categories of "NO WAY!" and "And in other news, the sky is blue." Oh HP fandom. You're so crazy, you make Trekkies, X-philes, and Tori Amos fans look normal. Never ever change.

Don't get me wrong, I still love the show and I think that the whole Isaiah Washington-TR Knight debacle does merit an examination of the unacceptable (yet still tolerated) treatment of the gay community. It's hard to remember that originally the incident was referred to as Chokegate: the Dempsey-Washington throw down.

But does the "Grey's Anatomy Feud" really merit CNN coverage? Really? There are people dying in Iraq, people. Get it together CNN. Your standards have been slipping since Tucker Carlson got bitchslapped on his own show by Jon Stewart.

That said? I so cannot wait for the E! True Hollywood Story for Grey's Anatomy. It's going to be awesome whenever it comes out, you know it will.

On a side note, I think this may be why I love Justin Chambers, Sandra Oh, and Kate Walsh the bestest of this cast. Justin goes home to play with his five (FIVE!) kids, Sandra's too cool and too much of a professional to get sucked into the drama, and Kate Walsh just likes to get drunk and crack jokes the entire time.

(Although, as far as TV casts go, I heart the Bones cast the best, at least until the Golden Globes where the entire cast of Ugly Betty did a huge squee!fest at their win. Between America giving that awesome speech and Vanessa Williams interrupting Silvio Horta's speech, emerging from backstage squealing in delight, they are now neck and neck.)

I haven't seen 24 yet, but I know what's coming and writers, I hate you.

ETA: Ok it's now later. If you don't watch the show, skip this entry, cuz it's all 24 related.

24 Premiere thoughts, or alternately: Apparently all the terrorists must stage their attacks in L.A. )
