The day has finally come, the moment that only we have been waiting for, the launch of our new website, fangirly.com! We really have been excited to start and judging from some of the stuff that we have planned the fun is just beginning.
Like our tagline suggests, we consider ourselves to be fairly intelligent, discerning human beings, but you stick us in front of TV screen, movie screen, iPod/Pad screen, really any screen, and something strange happens. We lose all sense of how rational people behave. We squeal, laugh hysterically, sob, and do this weird thing that only select members of our family do, rub our hands together out of excitement.
We wanted to give you a little taste of the fun that is to come, so here are some of the features we will be doing here at Fangirly:
Sweet Streams: Do you ever sit down in front of your Netflix account and wonder what you should watch next? “Sweet Streams” will be our recommendations for what you should be streaming to your myriad of devices.
Grade A, Choice Picks: We’re going to give you our top picks for a variety of categories. Curious as to our top food fight scenes? Top movies based on SNL skits? Top TV bromances? We are going to rank whatever our little hearts desire, because it gives us a false sense of superiority. Join us, won’t you?
Fangirly Exposed!: Look we all have things that we are embarrassed to like, guilty pleasures, if you will. We are going to do the smart thing and announce ours on the internet!
Fanmanly: While we here at Fangirly enjoy our fair share of romance and polka dots and… other girly stuff, we still like to get down and dirty with the boys. (Insert innuendo of choice here). “Fanmanly” is our look at shows, movies, etc. that leave us feeling just a little more hardcore.
Anglohphiles Anonymous: Whether it be the accents, the dry wit, or the general regal air, we love the Brits and their entertainment (at least everything that makes it across the pond). Check out picks for the finest that the UK has to offer.
Agree to Disagree: Let it be said that we agree on a lot, but there are also some things on which we will never see eye to eye. Enjoy as Ellen wins every argument (No, Ellen didn’t write this).
In with the Old: Remember the day when movies and TV shows weren’t all spinoffs, sequels, remakes, and re-imaginings? Us, too! With this feature we hope to remind the future generations that we were once able to come up with novel concepts. Because we believe the children are our future.
Marry, Boff, Kill: We once spent an entire camping trip playing this game, arguing over our choices, and disowning each other for killing certain people. Now we are bringing the game to you guys so you can relish in watching us argue over (never going to happen) hypothetical situations.
Fangirly Crush of the Week: Pretty self-explanatory, but our spotlight on who is rocking our world. At least for that week.
We have a lot planned and we are really excited to start. Hopefully you will find the time to stop by and see what we are up to! – by Ellen and Whitney
