The Museum of the Weird has been a place spoken of only in rumors for decades, but it wasn’t until Maxwell Keep wrote of his family’s connection to and adventures in the depository of paranormal artifacts that we had any first-person account of its existence.

Disney imaginer Rolly Crump seems to have had knowledge of this unique and frightening place, as he drew various elements of it during the design phase of the Haunted Mansion attraction. Whether Crump had first-hand knowledge of the museum or he was just somehow incredibly intuitive and/or channeling information from another dimension is unknown.

probablyintraffic:

I have been rereading the MsScribe saga today, which I now believe was so much more than an account of fandom because to have been able to write it is to understand fandom as it operated. This is important because we spend a lot of time on this website talking about how fandom should be, not about how it currently exists, as actual fact. Charlotte Lennox’s analyses of fandom, particularly, of how MsScribe was able to manipulate fandom, were very sharp, and talked about things that fannish people were not necessarily willing to talk about. 

A few things struck me as particularly prophetic about this current state of fandom.

  1. The fandom community is completely defenseless against bad faith actors who know how fandom works. 
    1. Consider MsScribe’s meteoric rise. Consider how knowing the right words is the one and only condition to being considered Good.
  2. Fandom operates on a couple of perverse incentives:
    1. Trauma will earn you not only sympathy, which it should, but also earn you authority to speak to a number of topics. 
    2. Trauma had become the only way that you earn authority to speak to those topics.
    3. In the times of MsScribe, this manifested in her story about her accident and her stay at the hospital, but it was very interesting how she trotted out the story in irrelevant contexts.
    4. MsScribe has also claimed to have experienced sexual assault.
    5. Now, this is combined with fandom’s de facto policy of Always Believe. This set of rules on which fandom operates does not mean that Always Believe should be done away with, but that we have to understand that it should come as no surprise that bad faith actors will exploit this rule.
  3. Accusations of racism and bigotry elevate fandom to a higher level of importance than it actually is.
    1. I have a post or two about how fandom is not actually important in the grand scheme of things, so I will not belabor the point here.
    2. Fandom still plays a huge part in the lives of fans, however, so it must be important, right? How do we make it seem more important?
    3. I believe MsScribe’s stunt with the racist and homophobic sockpuppets presages fandom’s abuse of social justice language. This is not a new point, but by elevating shipping wars to the levels of racism and homophobia, people can claim righteousness and justify their overzealous reactions.
    4. The thing is that nowadays, fandom no longer even requires sockpuppets to be made. Offences in order to generate appropriate outrages do not need to be odious neo-fascist statements; they are everywhere, manifest. You need to keep up with the latest non-ablest language, or you’re out. This is why fandom will never be able to surpass MsScribe’s sophisticated level of wankatry–there is simply no need for it.
      1. Separately, it amuses me to no end that fandom remembers Dan Savage as the guy who said some unwise things about asexual folks, and not one of the media dipshits who championed the Iraq war.

So a lot of the dynamics that we’re talking about right now have already been in existence in fandom, literally as early as the first true fandom history was written. Scary, no? But this is also why I completely reject analyses like Devin Faraci’s that paint this generation of fans as particularly “entitled,” as though “entitled” is not the right wing’s favorite bludgeon with which to hit Millennials. I also reject Aja Romano’s lol-tastic version of how fabulous and important fandom is in her numerous, brazenly ahistorical posts for Vox.com. I invite the likes of Charlotte Lennox, who has a real understanding of fandom and its history, as well as a willingness to talk about oft avoided things, to contribute to the discourse instead.

****Coming to you soon, maybe: A long ass post about everything wrong with Faraci’s and Romano’s takes on fandom.

Massive recall of cat food underway:

meret118:

Multiple cat food companies have voluntarily recalled dozens of their products over concerns the pets could get sick from eating them. Certain cans of cat fold from 9Lives, EverPet and Special Kitty did not have the proper amount of thiamine, which is also known as Vitamin B1, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, which announced the recall Tuesday.

The products affected were all distributed for retail between Dec. 20 and Tuesday. A full list of the canned cat food recalled follows below:

9Lives

Meaty Pate Chicken and Tuna 13 oz.

Meaty Pate Seafood Platter 5.5 oz.

Meaty Pate Seafood Platter, 4 pack of 5.5 oz. cans

Meaty Pate Super Supper 5.5 oz.

Meaty Pate Super Supper, 4 pack of 5.5 oz. cans

Meaty Pate Super Supper 13 oz.

Meaty Pate with Chicken and Seafood, 4 pack of 5.5 oz. cans

Meaty Pate with Chicken and Tuna 5.5 oz.

Meaty Pate with Chicken Dinner 5.5 oz.

Meaty Pate with Liver and Chicken, 4 pack of 5.5 oz. cans

Meaty Pate with Ocean Whitefish 5.5 oz.

Seafood Poultry Variety Pack 5.5 oz.

Meaty Pate with Chicken & Tuna, 4 pack of 5.5 oz. cans

EverPet

Mixed Grill Dinner 13 oz.

Special Kitty

Beef and Liver Dinner 13 oz.

Classic Tuna Dinner 13 oz.

Mixed Grill Dinner with printed wrap, 12 pack of 13 oz. cans

Mixed Grill Dinner without printed wrap 13 oz.

Super Supper 13 oz.

As of Wednesday morning, there was no information about parent company J.M. Smucker offering any refunds for the potentially affected cat food. Instead, the company instructed customers who purchased any of the above products to stop feeding their cats the food and to call 1-800-828-9980 or email consumer.relations@jmsmucker.com.

Low levels of thiamine could result in a cat having symptoms ranging from a lack of an appetite to seizures. While thiamine deficiency can be serious for cats, it can be treated if detected early.

A separate recall of cat food was issued in June when products from the Rad Cat Raw Diet may have been contaminated with either Salmonella or Listeria, or both, the FDA announced at the time.
