Geek Out Challenge – Day Two: What is your most recent fandom?
The next prompt in the 30 Day Geek Out Challenge is the flip side of yesterday’s and asks me to look at my most recent fandom.
I honestly had to think about this one a bit as fandom has a bit of a different meaning for me now than it has in the past. Things like having a child, a mortgage, and a demanding full time job place limitations on the amount of time and resources I have available to pursue and invest in things to the extent I have previously.
That most certainly does not mean that life, and geekiness, stop though. And in that spirit my latest fandom is Stranger Things, the popular Netflix series that recently enjoyed an immensely successful third season. While I haven’t necessarily invested as much of myself or been as avid a consumer of this fandom compared to ones in the past, I do nonetheless count myself a big fan of the series. I love it’s smart, fun blend of 1980s pop/geek culture, sci-fi, and horror and the ongoing adventure a whole lot of fun! And if that wasn’t enough, how can you not love heroes like these:
While I’m not all that involved with the franchise beyond watching the show, the one thing related to it that I also highly recommend for those so inclined is the amazingly well done mobile game that came out during the buildup to season two.
