We discovered today that Special:MostRevisions won’t load 95% of the time because it just takes too long to load. That’s what happens with over a million and a half edits. Before we cache it and it no longer updates, I thought I would present to you that list of the top 50 most edited articles. A lot of these are bot updated daily so counting them seems a bit iffy… but that’s neither here nor there. now for the list:

Father knows (evil) best?

December 11th, 2008

Yesterday saw the announcement of some interesting news for superhero fans, from Entertainment Weekly‘s on-line site. Apparently Heroes, still struggling in its third season to reclaim earlier magic, will be bringing in some big-name talent to the rescue. John Glover, last seen on television as Lionel Luthor on Smallville, will be joining the cast as father to another “super”-villain, though this time Sylar instead of Lex Luthor.

As a fan of John’s work for many years, when I first “discovered” him thanks to Brimstone, it’s certainly exciting to see him coming back to another televised series in what appears as though it could be a recurring role. At the same time, the apparent similarity in roles he’ll be performing certainly does give one pause; is Heroes being predictable in going with an actor already far too often typecast as an uber-villain? Or will they (and John) manage to do something with the role to clearly delineate it from simply being the Magnificent Bastard V 2.0? Even if pulled off successfully, is this enough to rekindle enthusiasm for a series that has been struggling since the end of its highly-touted first season? It should be interesting to find out–though I am perhaps more interested to see John’s other upcoming new television role on the ABC series Brothers & Sisters as it should be something rather different from his usual bad guy roles. On this series he’ll be playing a love interest to the character portrayed by fellow veteran actor Ron Rifkin. The two were excellent together in the 2005 play The Paris Letter, so I’ll be curious to see if they can recapture some of that chemistry in these roles.

And of course, the other question for me will be whether either of these roles will generate any new fan-fiction!

Random fandoms

December 3rd, 2008

I was doing some random viewing of articles on Fan History and I stumbled across another of people who belonged in multiple fandoms where the fandoms that they belonged to didn’t seem to go together at all… Below is a list of a few of the ones that made boggle and smile:

Do these fandoms go together?  Is there a logical connection which would indicate a person would be a fan of them all?  Also, what fandoms do you belong to when you look at them all together would appear random to others?
