Fandom HQ: An App Idea

Screen Shot 2014-02-24 at 3.11.38 PM

This is the dashboard which will display all relevant information to the person that has logged in. New trailers, upcoming showings, and relevant information will be displayed here.

For those of you who don’t know, I created this blog for a class. And alas! Another assignment. This one is suppose to be about an app I would create that goes together with my blog. So my fellow Fandomers, brace yourselves. What you are about to see is an imaginary app of my own creation. *Hold all applause and questions for the comment section below!

Behold! Fandom HQ. An app that fits every Fangirl and Fanboy’s needs. Think IMDb. Think Pintrest. Think Spotify playlists. All rolled into one, this baby is sure to please the everyday Fan wanting their Kindom’s information at their fingertips. Information on whether the show is coming back for another season or not. Information about what is on tonight and if they released the new trailer. All information that can be found on Fandom HQ.

Fandom HQ works very much like IMDb. You receive information about the shows, actors and movies you love. The difference is you can customize it. It is just for you. Like Spotify or Pintrest, you can create Fandom playlists or boards. So when you are logged in, your dashboard will contain all information that is relevant to you.

The first thing you do is create an account. After, you are asked to start choosing your shows, actors and movies you would like to see pop up on your dashboard. Once you have searched and added it to your list, your dashboard will display any trailers that are related to your list. Information about what is coming on tonight and any news about said show/film/actor.

Pretty neat huh? Would you say it is Nerd-tastic? Anyways, this is only an idea guys. This was for class and I am not some super genius that can make apps willy-nilly. So do not get so over-excited.

-With love, Nerd.

This is what the search page will look like. You type in the show/film/actor and once you select, you simply add to the list.

Guardians of the Galaxy

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy trailer premiered during a Tuesday showing of “Jimmy Kimmel Live”.

Directed and written by James Gunn, known for the 2004 film Dawn of the Dead and 2006 Slither, the trailer certainly seemed to come out of left field.

Starring Chris Pratt and John C. Reilly, the trailer featured an abundance of space filled action and unexpected comedy. With characters like a narcissistic yet goofy, lead man known as “Star-Lord” and a raccoon named “Rocket”, this film is expected to be nothing like the heroes of the Marvel Avengers that fans have become accustomed to.

Based on the comic, Guardians of the Galaxy follow the anti-hero known as Star-Lord who happens to stumble upon an evil plan while stealing some orb thingy.

Teamed up with a ragtag squad of alien misfits, Star-Lord attempts to stop said evil plan.

With odd humor and funky music accompanying the trailer, we can only assume that this film is going to be either the dumbest movie ever created or the best thing that could possibly grace this earth.

 

I Love You Like a Fangirl

Today is Valentine’s Day, and unlike many of my fellow Fandomers, I do not hate it. I think it is actually pretty nice.

Valentine’s does not have to be a crap fest of one-day-lovers. Any holiday that displays chocolate like its diamonds is a holiday I want to be apart of. So, if you’re feeling like this Friday has turned into a Singles Awareness Day, do a very nerdy thing about it.

Grab some friends who understand your Fandom, buy an over abundance of snacks, and binge watch your favorite show. That is better than any stupid-suit-up-wine-and-dine-fancy-shmancy-dinner.

It is time to make a date with Harry Potter, Buffy, Game of Thrones and any other Fandom you may be apart of. It is time to do what all good Fandomers do on any occasion, make it about the Fandom!

And while you’re over indulging in snacks and wonderful television and movies, check out these 20 Nerd-tastic V-day cards.

Joss Whedon Killed My Favorite Character

A rant on Joss Whedon

Now it’s no secret that Joss Whedon has a reputation for, uh well, you know, um killing off characters.

23110890cd13441c42d436c3e36662a7

I mean, he is really known for killing off people.

I know. I’m still upset over the Spike’s death in the series finale of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

And now, he’s talking of killing a major character in the new Avengers movie, Avengers:  Age of UltronThis man is mad with power.

Is it not enough that you killed Coulson in the first movie?

267d8686df5e56f1277c3afd16705973

Oh, wait. Coulson wasn’t his idea. Well, I guess he is not all that bad. I mean maybe we should talk about his good traits. Yeah?

 tumblr_m784v1xcV91rrqpumo1_500

Okay, um well. Good traits. Hmm. Oh yeah, he is definitely a fangirl.

 1ac85c529048354e3c8de2ac68318628

And well, he seems like a normal person.

And he has words, of um, well wisdom.

b59b270fa88594f3c01724ee3b491997

But we shouldn’t give him too much credit. After all, he is Joss Whedon, lurking around the corner just waiting to kill off your favorite character.

So remember, when watching anything created by Joss Whedon, watch out. Joss Whedon, you smug bastard!
