I’m Not A Fucking Hipster! AKA:The Entirely Too Long Rant Agaisnt a Stupid Blog Post

Recently I read a blog post by another horror blogger that got me all riled up and ready to fight.  No they didn’t insult my mother or call me anything insensitive, but they did insult me, albeit indirectly.

If you follow me on twitter (and you totally should @ddellamorte) you’ll know I commented on my distaste for what I call “Tourists” in fandoms, men and women who associate with a specific fandom simply because they think it makes them “Cool” or because it will get them attention.

I’m sure you’re already shaking your head and thinking “Oh Christ, here we go, he’s going to go on an old man rant about how these young kids don’t know anything”, and I’m not.  As I stated on twitter, “Being new to a fandom isn’t a sin, being a pretentious fuck is”.

And if you’ve been a horror fan for any length of time, you’ve probably run into not only “Tourist” horror fans (and trust me, you know them as soon as they open their mouths) but you’ve also run into the crotchety pretentious horror fans too, and this is where I took issue with the blogger previously mentioned.  He (or She) wrote a post listing the “Hipster” things that we horror fans do.

Obviously because I’m writing an entire entry about this, I disagreed with said blogger and felt the need to refute them.  But the list made me realize something.  All the things this blogger said can be construed as “Hipster” if you’re not already a horror fan.  Listen, I realize that assholes are running around in every fandom, it’s the nature of the world, but by definition a “Fan” is someone who is a Fanatic (1. a person whose enthusiasm or zeal for something is extreme or beyond normal limits 2. informal  a person devoted to a particular hobby or pastime; fan: a jazz fanatic)

Obviously the term “Fan” has come to mean someone who simply enjoys something and the term “True Fan” or “Super Fan” has taken over the original definition of the word, but when I say that I am a Horror Fan I mean it in the most literal sense.

Devour the Podcast Episode 7: Paranormal In-Activity (AKA:Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu)

Devour The Podcast Episode 7

Note: I won’t be posting shows here on the blog as often as I used to as I have an all new blog set up specifically for the show. If you are already subscribed through Itunes, you won’t need to change anything, however if you aren’t hop on Itunes and search Devour the Podcast or you can just head over to the other page, www.devourthepodcast.blogspot.com

It’s finally here, the review of Paranormal Activity 2 that I’ve put off for two weeks (spoiler alert: I hated it).

No It Came from the Instant Queue this week, I’ve been too busy working on the Nightbreed retrospective and watching The X-Files. Next week, episode 8 will feature the return of the It Came From the Instant Queue as well as the final nail in the Paranormal coffin with the review of Paranormal Activity 3

Devour the Podcast #6: Presenting “Classics From the Crypt vol.1”

Devour the Podcast #6: Presenting “Classics From the Crypt vol.1”

If you were looking forward to finally hearing David review Paranormal Activity I’m sorry to say, that ain’t happening this week. Due to unforeseen circumstances, this week’s episode instead features the début of Classics From the Crypt, featuring the very first episode of the now defunct Cryptcast. Take a trip down memory lane as you hear where David struck out on his own (with help from Dez) into the podcasting world.  And while your listening, make sure to check out fellow horror bloggers: http://horrorbore.wordpress.com/ http://alohamisterhand.wordpress.com/ and http://rhinews.wordpress.com/
