If you’ve got some time, I highly recommend heading over to Eaddy Mays’ Tumblr post about shipping. She asked followers about canon vs fanon, the dialog and responsibilities between fandom and creators, and expectations. She collected a mountain of responses, published them, and added her perspective. It covered Sterek vs. Dyler, queerbaiting, using fanon ships to promote a show, differences in fandoms like Supernatural, Teen Wolf, and Johnlock, and overall was really more thoughtful than I could ever do justice. But it’s wonderful seeing an actress listening and responding.
I honestly did watch the video of the One Direction boys smoking pot. Big deal. So I had missed that Louis made a racial slur and used “gay” in a derogatory fashion. Fans are now demanding an apology. »

Composer Bruce Broughton has been outspoken in his disappointment over the Academy board of governors disqualifying his Oscar nomination for “Alone Yet Not Alone.” Yet he says that fans are having the last say.
“Once they rescinded the nomination, everyone asked about it, and as a result, the song is doing very well,” said Broughton. “You couldn’t buy that publicity.”
The Academy made its decision after Broughton, a former governor and current music branch executive committee member, emailed members of the branch to seek out the song, as it was featured in a very under-the-radar indie faith-based film.
Broughton noted that subsequent sales of the song on iTunes and Amazon.com have pushed it to hit number 19 on the Billboard Christian music chart this week. He spoke while in attendance at the 22nd annual Movieguide Faith and Values Awards, honoring redemptive and uplifting storytelling in film and TV, held Feb. »
