On May 19, 2009, Big Light's social network turns one year old. Please up us celebrate the 1st anniversary by joining us in a party.
Since we are a worldwide fandom, and taking a cue from the XFN project, this will be an international project.
Using the creative talents of Anelisse, Gomnitus, and Yellowbee, please submit a video (or photos) telling Uncle Frank of the positive experiences you've had here with folks on Biglight. These can be Phile events you have been part of, finding other Philes in your area, or thanking him for creating this site. Entries can be solo or with a group; in your native language or English.
We are anticipating a HUGE turnout, so please read and follow the submission guidelines below.
- videos must be a maximum of 20 seconds
- no .MOV files
- if you have photos posted on your BL page and wish them to be used, please let us know via email
The deadline for submission is APRIL 30, 2009.
Send your submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org
Let's make this party happen and thank Uncle Frank for the wonderful site he created.
I had so much fun last night! Sorry I couldn't hang out longer, but I expect to see pictures! I uploaded some of them from last night, and, of course, a video. :) http://network.biglight.com/video/karaoke-1
I know you all will have a blast. Take lots of pictures and post them when you get back. It is pouring down rain here, I hope the weather is good for Disneyland, but then even if it does rain it will still be a blast. LOL. It doesn't rain in Buzz.
I am so disappointed that I can't make the Phile/Project weekend. I have too many family things to do. The big ones are picking my son up at Science camp, entertaining relatives visiting from Japan and going to my niece's 3rd birthday party. I will be thinking of you guys.
And I wonder what is so special about Hera. I mean, she drew the notes to (what I call) the Cylon National Anthem. But Starbuck knew the other part.... And Starbuck both intrigues and scares the crap out of me!
The rational side of me understands the "lost day" issue and the realities of work and school. And at least we'll see you Sat. night.
The "big kid" in me is sticking it;s tongue out at you and scowling!
Maybe you could meet us for dinner in Anaheim on Fri night. I know there are some great places in Disney Walk, and we will most likely eat there, do the birthday celebration, and then head back into the park if we want to. Not sure where you would be, but it's an option. Park across the street so you don't pay for parking, and join us.
BTW, I just finished packing and I have a shit load of stuff in this suitcase!
I hope you don't mind me posting this here guys, but I'm undertaking some research on responses to the revival from fans, former fans, lapsed fans and never-were-fans. This will contribute to my PhD on negotiating fandom, which I began back in 2010…See More
"I think the idea is to remain actively interested. Go to forums and start replying to posts regardless how old they are. Those people once were motivated to participate, they will again. Engage personalities like the Nerdist who is a big X Files…"
