This Week In Fandom, Volume 144

Hello and welcome to This Week in Fandom, the OTW’s roundup of things that are happening! We made our budget post last week (in advance of our successful membership drive – thanks again, everyone!) and so this TWIF will be bringing you fandom content from the last two weeks. First up, musical theatre fans received a treat this week when a myriad of Hollywood and Broadway stars teamed up to celebrate Stephen Sondheim. The veteran musical theatre composer just turned 90, and actors including Beanie Feldstein, Jake Gyllenhaal and Meryl Streep got together (virtually!) to offer tribute by performing some of his better- (and indeed… Read more

This Week in Fandom, Volume 143

Hello and welcome to This Week in Fandom, the OTW’s roundup of things that are happening! As we start to get into the rhythm of life at home, we’ve managed to pull together a fairly tasty update for you with some highlights from around the web. First up, did you see John Krasinski’s Some Good News this week, and the surprise he organised for 9-year-old Hamilton fan Aubrey? As Krasinski says, ‘If you can’t get to Hamilton, bring Hamilton to you.’ Have you seen any other good celeb home broadcasts this week? Feel free to share them in the comments! On Tor.com this week, Ryan… Read more

This Week In Fandom, Volume 141

Welcome to This Week in Fandom, the OTW’s roundup of things which are happening! First, a small format change to TWIF for now, since the broader entertainment world is on hiatus: we’re going to be featuring more recommendations and events from around the internet as we all spend more time at home. There may be only so much Netflix you can watch, but fandom is full of things to create and participate in. Feel free to tell us about cool fandom things that are happening in the comments! First up, a handy primer for all the apps, services, and ways people are hanging out over… Read more

This Week In Fandom, Volume 140

Hello and welcome to This Week in Fandom, the OTW’s roundup of things that are happening! It’s been a strange week for many of us but some things remain reassuringly constant: as Jessica Mason observed in The Mary Sue, Supernatural has a gif for this. Season 5 episode ‘The End’, which aired in 2009, featured a postapocalyptic world in which prophet Chuck Shurley advised Dean to ‘Hoard toilet paper… like it’s made of gold’. Time for a rewatch? We might be stuck rewatching old episodes of our favourite shows for a little while; like many other movie and television productions across the world, production came… Read more
