Fan & Slash Videos

Ok we just saw a nice Skinner / Mulder slave pic...

Now we're learning about a genre I've never heard of - private music videos fans make, combining silent films, then putting a pop song on top of it, and editing the film to match and express subtexts about the characters.

As a budding academic, it's fascinating to hear how closed fandom is to researchers. Evidently you have to be mentored in, and you can't really get in unless you're also a partcipant-fan.

Good questions on replicable sourcing v. anthropological methodolgy in online research...
