This ain’t one of my normal videos. Not about science fiction at all, this is a response to a video by Ron Lit about Pride and Prejudice. You probably need to have watched that one for many of my references to make sense.

Why did it take until 2014 for the Hugo Awards to catch up with internet fandom?

adribbleofink:

Big ships turn slowly.

Younglings, internet denizens, and b/vloggers of SFF - assemble! 

WorldCon was fantastic but we need to keep it that way and that means we all need to join in. So join us and make a noise. <3
