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 RichardArmitageNet.com or TheArmitageArmy.co.uk.
I’m pretty sure I also got the video clip from RichardArmitageNet.com, but if I’m wrong about that, someone please correct me.
