Whitney and I went on PBS’s Off Book to talk about fan cultures recently. I was joined by my friend Amanda Brennan from Know Your Meme to talk about Bronies - fans of My Little Pony, and Whitney spoke on the subject of Holmies – fans of James Holmes. Also featured in the video are Alexa Dacre, fan fiction writer; Naomi Novik, Organization for Transformative Works; and Prof. Francesca Coppa, Muhlenberg College.
The new video series Idea Channel from PBS is really great. They’ve asked important questions like Is Miku Hatsune a More Authentic Pop Star Than Lana Del Rey, and Are Hologram Tupac and Hologram Freddie Mercury Nostalgia or New Aesthetic?
In the latest installment, host Mike Rugnetta asks if the large numbers of adult men who are genuine fans of My Little Pony are helping to re-shape the notion of masculinity. After all, the color pink was considered more appropriate for boys than girls up until the 1920s.
