So, I've been notice these remix things on the teaspoon. Actually, I noticed them last year (actually, it was the year before that), and I went on a massive internet search to try to find where people gather to divy these things up, becauase I think it's a very interesting idea.

Long story short; I only managed to find last year's remix community, and so I figured it wasn't on. So I stopped looking. Then all of these remixes popped up on the 'spoon again.

So yes, request, next year, when these this thing is being organized, can someone please point me in the right direction for sign-ups? Because this will be my third time missing the boat, and I really am quite intrigued.

Thanks in advance.

Hmm, I’m not sure whether to be chuffed or terrified, but my SCARY linguistics prof. (honestly, the class went from 52 to 12 in two weeks… SCARY MAN!) likes my paper topic and was very effusive (well, for him) in telling me so.
However, I am now scared out of my mind because if I let this dude down he’ll probably fail me (he’s like that, which is part of why he’s so damn frightening). Though, on the up side I got a compliment from the scary man, and he doesn’t do that much... actually, he’s far more likely to be smart, and scary, and vaguely insulting. Though, he did buy us all cake that one time, and I've been wondering lately if the scary front might just be a façade.
Anyway, the paper is on fanfiction and the reclamation of stories by the people from the corporation. Since methinks most of the people reading this lj have opinions on the matter of fic I open the forum up to you. Are there any places you think I can gather good ethnographic information? Do you know any sites which give good definitions of fic? Also, do any of you happen to be Star Trek fans; mostly because, as far as I can tell from my research, the trekkies were the ones to invent the fanzine (but please correct me on that if I’m wrong, also it’s two ‘k’s right?).
