Why I Like PBS, Reason # FANDOM!

Sometimes I go to You Tube for reasons other than fanvids. Not often, you understand, but sometimes. And of course when I actually do that?

Fandom happens. Heh.

(And fandom discussed without all those enraging "Oh, goodness me! Just look at all these amusing freaks and losers! Why do they do these things? Amusing, eh wot? Oh, let's just point and jeer, shall we?" overtones that make me want to chew nails and spit tacks. Yay, PBS!)

No lie, I just found this last night myself and was thinking 'gee, I should post that sometime.' I do rather love PBS sometimes . . .

I think I liked the one about gifs even better.

Okay, when I watch that vid, I see music video about "Living Things," but from your posts and the comments at LJ I conclude that other people see some typo of documentary?

Wait... I just realized, if I click on the video HERE, while I have your entry open, I get some type of documentary, too. But when I look at it on my "reading" page, I still see that music video... weird.

Would be cooler if they had a single woman anywhere in the video. Major oversight.

Yes, I liked that, too, but I thought it was weird that they were talking to her co-worker (or boss?) and not her.

Otherwise I thought it was really well done. Surprising oversight on their part.

This was indeed overall a very well done and respectful video. Nice to see a piece on fandom that doesn't feel like it's pointing and laughing. [livejournal.com profile] sahiya beat me to pointing out the glaring and bizarre total lack of ladies. Maybe fanart isn't quite as heavily female-dominated as fanfic, but there's still a high percentage of female fan artists. It should have been easy to interview one or more, but for some reason they didn't. Hmph.

I was amused by the accurate depiction of Sherlock fandom as especially prone to oddness. We get VERY bored in the long waits between series and turn to crack to keep ourselves occupied.
