Crossing Over

And fanvids are just a part of it. More good stuff about being an RA fan coming up. See how far my public service extends. ;-)

If you are new to the RA fandom (gee I think I’ve said that a time or two, but really I don’t know if anyone new would be reading this blog), and you have not heard of crinkles, or if you have heard of them but haven’t had the unction to find out what they’re really about, you are so missing out.

There is a sort of magical place on the web called C19: The Crinkle Zone:

1) You must unlock the power of the Zone with the key of your imagination.

2) Beyond the entrance is another dimension. A dimension of sight. A dimension of mind.

3) It’s a land of both shadow and substance, of things and ideas.

One more thing before you cross over into the Crinkle Zone:

It’s not okay to drink (alcohol or anything) while you’re in there — not if you want your computer’s keyboard to survive. Drink before you get there. Or better yet, just get high while you’re in there. :D If you’re blue or hacked or just about anything negative you can be, head there immediately.

Oh, and be sure to read “The Joy of Crinkles” thread before you really begin, and there’s a “Part Deux” thread as well. No, they’re not necessary, but they’re more than worth the price of admission (your time) and will help you understand. What exactly I’m not sure. That’s up to you. But remember no drinking!

Note: you must become a member of C19 to get in on this good thing!

And to get you started, one of the more famous crinkles:

Be sure to check out Nat’s blog, and the Cute Crinkles she has over there. That was the catalyst for this entry by the way. I just couldn’t help myself. :D

edit: If you do make your way over to the Crinkle Zone, be sure to say hello to Manda, who is the “high priestess” of the Fankles and head of The Cult of the Crinkle.

second edit: below is the interview from which the screencap was taken.

Screencap courtesy of the “Quaddy Waddy Do Da” thread, and before that probably courtesy of or

I’m pretty sure I also got the video clip from, but if I’m wrong about that, someone please correct me.


  1. Well lol!! If I find every screecap I have with RA wrinkling his forehead (sorry, “crinkling” his forehaed), will I gain admission? If it is as good as you say it is (the Crinkle corner) my blogging and essential other work and household duties may suffer :)

    Thanks for posting!

  2. You just have to learn to pace yourself. LOL! That’s what I’ve had to do. But it really is a hoot. I get a chuckle just from reading the thread names.

  3. Your Public Service Medal is in the mail, Raf!

  4. :D

  5. OMG where is that picture from? Goes to show how green I am.

    As far as C19 “I’m .. not .. going .. out .. there”

  7. @iz4spunk,

    Check out the edit.

  8. Thanks for the vid, second time I see it. Its interesting how calm and more shy (¿?) he looks here in comparison with recent interviews. I guess he’s more comfortable now after so many interviews.

    Loooooove RA with Guy’s hair! *swoon*

    OML :)

  9. I lurk in the Crinkle Zone on a daily basis but rarely have the courage to post anything, it’s the banter those ladies have going that cracks me up. How they keep it up day after day I shall never know but it’s a joy to see.

  10. Isn’t it great? LOL!

  11. Well …lol… thanks a lot RAFrenzy and Nat. I lurked on Crinkle Zone and the caption contest and couldn’t help myself but post. Turns out I won that contest so now I’ve had to come up with a crinkly cap to caption. I expect both you and Nat to come up wth captions in return for getting me hooked :) :)

  12. So glad to help you out. LOL. :D

  13. Thanks for the clip!! Finally saw your posted interview and remembered it. The link didn’t work on my ipod touch where i do most of my blogreading. I’ve saved it to my playlist for plenty more crinkle studying ;)
    And I made it is as far as all the crinkle terminology…that was plenty for one go.

  14. I started with the crinkle terminology, and that’s why I know not to drink anything while reading there. I literally spewed iced tea all over my laptop. Thankfully, I keep a skin on my keyboard.

  15. I just found this blog on a fluke, but hi!! I’m glad you like the crinkles. :-D

  16. Thanks for creating them! :D

  17. @The Crinkle Zone ladies,

    I saw your flowers. Thank you, and it was a pleasure to let others know about you. :D

  18. Enjoy the crinkles! Coming up with the different names was fun!

  19. I can tell. LOL!

  20. Lol looks like our C zone has gone global ;) I agree, it has often been a place of refuge when life has not been going so well.
