Here comes your friendly neighborhood superhero! | Spider-Man Random Fandom

By Jessica
Teen Advisory Group member

Spider-Man: Homecoming was released earlier this year and nerds and geek alike fell in love with all the characters.

I, personally, don’t have an opinion about the movie yet because I haven’t watched it (I know. Shame on me.). However, I have a major celebrity crush on Tom Holland. I mean, who doesn’t?

In celebration of the movie (yes, we know it’s a little late), December’s Random Fandom will be Spider-Man themed! Because we know there are a lot of fans of the older Spider-Man movies, this RF is not limited to the recent movie.

As always…

A Quick Overview of the Program:

Who: you and your buddies
What: Spider-Man Random Fandom
When: Thursday, December 14 (4:00-5:30)
Where: Flower Mound Public Library in the Program Room (near the restrooms)
3030 Broadmoor Ln.
Flower Mound, TX 75022

Activities:

To start off, there will be a trivia in related to Spider-Man. From what I heard, it might be a Kahoot, so be prepared to jam out to the bomb Kahoot soundtrack!

There will also be a silly string target practice outside where players have cans of silly string to spray at villains. The silly string will act like Spider-Man’s webs that shoot out of his wrists. Whoever successfully defeats all the villains in the shortest amount of time wins. Just remember, do not spray your fellow players with the silly string!

In honor of the viral .gif of Spider-Man dancing (pictured above) that supposedly can go with any music, there will be a dance. It might be a dance battle. It might be just a dancing fest. Who knows? You’ll have to attend to find out!

Just like in the beginning of the movie, there will be a task to steal Captain America’s shield! On top of that, there will be a mini scavenger hunt in search for Stan Lee, who made a cameo in the recent movie.

And because we’re a bunch of nerds, we are also going to play Superfight. I’m going to try and TL;DR the rules of the game:

Basically, there are a stack of white cards and a stack of black cards. The white cards have characters on them (ex. ninja) while the black cards have powers on them (ex. ability to freeze things). When it’s their turn, the player picks up three white and three black cards. They have to choose one white and one black one, set them face down, and return the remaining unused cards into the deck. The next player does the same. Then both players turns over the chosen white card (to reveal their character) and then have to choose a black card from the deck at random to add to their skill. Then they reveal everything to the table (the rest of the players waiting their turn) and have to plead their case as to who would win in an one-on-one battle. Whoever the table chooses wins the round. If you want to official rules of the game (because I know I’m terrible at explaining things), click here to go to the official rules page. All you need to know is that the game is tons of fun.

In addition to all the fun games, there will be web serum punch served (don’t worry, you don’t have to be bitten by a radioactive spider to enjoy it) and maybe get to watch the Honest Trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming.

It doesn’t matter than you’ve never watched a Spider-Man movie in your whole entire life (like myself). You can still attend Random Fandom! It’s just a program to spend time with like-minded people and have fun. Don’t forget to mark December 14th on your calendar and hope to see you there!

Calling All Superheroes! | Justice League Random Fandom

By Jessica
Teen Advisory Group member


DC is releasing another superhero movie soon! It’s called Justice League, and it’s coming out on Friday, November 17. According to a fellow nerd, although almost all of the DC Comics superheroes have been part of the Justice League at one point or another, this movie focuses on five of them: Batman, Wonder Woman, the Flash, Aquaman, and Cyborg.

Insert the Theme Music from Law & Order Here

rffingerprintIn case you don’t know, Law & Order is a show that’s been on for a billion years, it’s almost always playing on USA at any time of day, and your favorite actor has probably made an appearance on it at some point.

L&O aside, we love crime shows. There are so many of them, and they’re all the same but different. Whether the dead body is in LA, New York, Miami, Vegas, or Hawaii, we love the mystery and we love the characters. That’s why September’s Random Fandom celebrates the upcoming seasons of all crime shows.

BTW, Random Fandom is THURSDAY at 4 p.m. One of you will play the dead body, one of you will be the killer, and the rest of you will have to figure it out before you run out of time in this special murder mystery based on our favorite crime show characters.

If you need to get into the mood, go to your Netflix queue and watch a few episodes of CSI or NCIS, listen to the mystery of an actual crime on Serial, or check out one of these books: Continue reading

September at Your Local Library!

To quote the great poet Silento in his memorable ‘poem’ Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae), “You already know who it is.”

help me

Just kidding, it’s your neighborhood TAG president, Nim! Welcome to the new school year of 2016-2017! Hope the first week of school has been treating you well, unlike me. 😛 If your week is going well, I have more good news for you. If your week is not going so well, it’s going to start going well now.

IT’S TIME FOR THE SEPTEMBER BRIEFING!!!

dork

It’s making an appearance after months of hiatus, which I am very sorry about. High school can be rough (so check out the bulletin board in the teen section, and help your fellow teens survive high school!), and I learned that the hard way. Enough about negativity, let’s get to the positive news!!

Bollywood Random Fandom

Hey guys! It’s Mayher! Sorry I haven’t been posting lately but I’m working on contributing to this blog a lot more.

Some pretty big news that you guys probably heard about is that WE ARE HAVING A BOLLYWOOD RANDOM FANDOM! This is the best news any Indian can hear. 

yaas

This RF will occur on March 10th from 4-5:30 in the program room. Please wear white or bring a change of white clothes for the Holi event (last part of the RF).

Here’s a little bit of background about Bollywood:

Bollywood is one of the biggest film industries in the WORLD and it made 204 movies in 2015 alone. The highest grossing movie of 2015 was Bajrangi Bhaijaan(according to Wikipedia, the most reliable source 😉 making over 626 crore rupees or 92 million US dollars.

waah

Translation: wow, very good XD

Not to mention, the amount of fangirls and fanboys is literally the entire population of India plus more. That’s a lot of moms.

sk

This is Salman Khan. My favorite actor as well as my mom’s. Don’t Judge.

SRK

This is Shahrukh Khan. Another well loved actor.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My favorite part about Bollywood is the singing and the dancing in every single movie. Everyone wants to know the latest song or learn the latest dance move. They express sheer joy and happiness throughout the world. (And I get ALL the songs stuck in my head; it’s hard to not love them.)

madhuri

Madhuri Dixit aka Dancing Queen of Bollywood

We decided it would be appropriate to host this RF during the spring time because of the ever so popular holiday: Holi.

Holi is about the celebration of colors in the Hindu religion (but many people outside of the religion like myself can still celebrate it). It is similar to Diwali in that it represents the good overcoming the evil, but Holi is celebrated to mark the beginning of Spring. People throughout India flood the streets wearing white and throw colored powder at each other, and it is a very fun event.

And look how pretty Deepika Padukone and Ranbir Kapoor look in Yeh Jiwani Hai Diwani.(I ship them so hard.)

balam pichkari.gif

Even in this Gif she’s saying she’s having fun. (Itna maza)

 

Well, I hope you guys can make it and celebrate the glories that Bollywood has to offer!

Random Fandom: Pitch Perfect

Hey “pitches”, it’s Nim here (using terrible puns oops)! If you were not there for our Random Fandom today, you missed out on a good one. First things first, do you see that awesome picture above? That was our recreation of the original Pitch Perfect poster! Can you tell which character I am? If you can’t tell, I’m the one with that huge white cardigan on, or the tiniest person in the picture (yay). Anyways, all we do at Random Fandom is geek out over the fandom and eat food. Like today, we watched the whole movie, sang along with Anna Kendrick, and we reenacted the cast photo! RF is a super cool event that you guys should totally come to. And say hi if you drop by, I love to talk!
