So...I had intended to post today about Ripper Street, because I have totally fallen for that show and feel that other people need to appreciate it's delightful slash-fest-ness, and I will still do that at a later time, BUT FIRST!

I'm sure by now everyone knows that a Veronica Mars movie is well on its way to being fan funded on Kickstarter. Oh my God, I'm so excited I can't even. I've been hoping and pining for a movie since the show ended. I just rewatched the first season and was reminded of how absolutely amazing the show was with its razor sharp writing, fantastic acting, interesting characters and relationships, and a murder mystery that had me on the edge of my seat. MORE OF THIS PLEASE, YAY!

I'm also just really excited to see how this is happening. I'm a populist at heart, and I love the great democratizing force of the Internet. The kinds of stories that get told in popular culture don't just reflect our society they shape it. Until the Internet, the decisions about what those stories would be were held in too few hands. The Internet lets us turn our voices into votes and our spare change into movies. This is an awesome day to be a person who cares about storytelling.


ETA: GOAL REACHED!! IT IS FUNDED!
