This week's 5 Fandom Friday is about Fandom Guilty Pleasures. I am not entirely sure what constitutes a guilt pleasure in this case so I am just going to throw out some ideas.
1. Funko Pops
My first funko pops were part of a giveaway I won and there has been no going back since. I try to stay within fandoms that I like. I am working on my Marvel collection. I have some Batman ones, especially Harley Quinns. And a few odd ones from different shows here and there. I want the Outlander and the Doctor Who ones next. I also have an addiction to the mystery minis. I have Game of Thrones, Walking Dead, Batman and some Titan Doctor Who ones. Love these.
I grew up on musicals. I have so many musical soundtracks. But it doesn't stop there. I have instrumental music from movies and tv shows too. One of my favorites is the soundtrack to Kenneth Branagh's Much Ado About Nothing. Jerry Goldsmith is one of my favorite instrumental composers for films. Logan's Run and Exodus come to mind. And to add to my geeky reputation I have an instrumental cd for Xena Warrior Princess. All Hail the Nerd Queen.
I find myself spending for too much time watching videos of youtubers. Danisnotonfire, KickthePJ, Jimmy0010 and Carrie Hope Fletcher are some of the ones I watch the most. Although I do find myself watching baking videos a lot.
4. Nail Polish
I do have a strange love affair with nail polish. Above is Mighty Boosh and Avengers nail art. I am not very good at nail art but I just keep doing it.
5. Binge Watching
Even before I got Netflix I binged watched my favorite shows. I have so many of my favorite sci-fi/fantasy shows on DVD. Now with Netflix it is almost a daily addiction to watch hours of shows on my laptop in bed when I should be asleep. I have gone to bed after the sun has risen too many times. Yet I will probably do that again tonight. Only when the birds start chirping do I turn the computer off : )
