Would you like to join us on our Fandomize Podcast? We need opinions!

We're setting up the next few episodes of the Fandomize Podcast and we need people to come join us to discuss all kinds of fannish topics.

We record them on Skype and we can work around almost any time zone. Here are some of the topics we're interested in discussing:

  • My family (people at work) don't understand me and my fandom.

  • How proudly do you wear your fandom? For example, do you wear the t-shirts? Have your house painted like a Tardis, etc?

  • Convention Questions: what's appropriate, what's not, how do we draw the line? (For example, if the actor works with a battered women's charity is it okay to bring up the subject?)

  • What do you do when your fannish show goes off the air?

  • Classic fandoms - why do some (Starsky & Hutch, Star Trek) live on long after the show is gone.

  • Actors and the Fandom - do you like it when they're involved or is it weird?

  • That moment when you go from just watching to becoming a full on fangirl or boy.


Open to any other fannish topics you'd like to discuss. We're also interested in interviewing fan writers, artists, especially anyone who has turned their fandom love into their career (or side job.)

Graceland Grabbed Me

gracelandLoved the concept behind Graceland. Love, love love Daniel Sunjata. Put them together and I'm in. Pilot episode was good. A little cliche but all those pretty boys - gotta have some major bromance going on.

Oh and Brandon Jay McLaren, enjoyed him on The Killing. Nice bunch all around and I always love seeing SoCal beaches on my TV. It's like Baywatch with guns.

Anyone else watch?

I've been writing!

ben-oldphotoSeriously, I am so pleased with myself over my writing accomplishments of the last two weeks. Not that I wrote Gone with the Wind or anything, but I wrote everyday, even with distractions and finished two pieces.

First is an obscure fan fic of the Ben Murphy variety - Gemini Man

Second, I wrote a piece for an erotica anthology, something I used to do a lot of but haven't for a long while. Hopefully, they'll buy it.

So here's thanks to zenamydog for her patience and encouragement and to kimberlyfdr for her unintentional inspiration.

I've reopened my fan fic archive

I was reading some of my old fic today and thought, it's a waste that I have this scattered all over and not in one place where even I can find it! LOL.

So, I reopened my fan fic archive. http://jdsampson.net/

Not too much there right now except for my favorite Alias Smith and Jones piece called The Haunting of Jedidiah Curry.

I toyed around with the best way to organize it all and I think this works, so please come visit and then visit again and tell your friends if they read in my fandoms. I've strayed too far from the fannish girl I used to be and I want to get back. So please help me!
