I am hoping you’ve were given your band tee and poster markers able: it’s Fandom Month on Man Repeller.
The coolest factor about this theme — but even so the pun simply ready to be mentioned (cool, fan…) — is that the MR neighborhood got here up with the theory.
“Fandom can be interpreted so many ways,” Leandra wrote to the group once I forgot to elaborate about mentioned theme in my team-wide electronic mail for our March pitch assembly. I actually simply wrote “FANDOM” in a super-sized font with multicolored letters, then hit ship. Anywho, she endured: “Celebrity fandom, fashion fandom, influencer fandom. It forces us to confront what we mean when we say/think/engage with the notion of celebrity. Where is the line that draws fandom from obsession? Does such a line truly exist?”
We’re going to discover those issues through speaking to superstar superfans, speaking to ourselves about what (or who) we’re superfans of, doing a shoot that comes to literal fanatics (and style), and naturally, stretching out the idea that of fandom in such a lot of other iterations (from iconic tv to the Oscars to I don’t even know what) it’ll make your head spin.
Oh, but when it is advisable kindly stay your head nonetheless for only one extra 2nd, we’d love to know what you’d like to see extra of. Deposit within the feedback segment underneath the place I will be able to reply in fan mail.
