Discussion in 'Fan Productions' started by jespah, May 10, 2018.
Axanar productions is a legally registered corporation in california.
So what exactly is going on with Alec and the Youtuber, I hadn't heard about any of that before.
How I read this is, this Youtuber hates Discovery and though Axanar was the second coming. Another Youtuber (who was in LFIM's camp) said something she didn't agree with/didn't like (relating to Vic Mignogna and his sexual harassment troubles - a whole other mess), she turned against all fan films and against Axanar specifically (Why? I don't know - I haven't watched her vid, so I don't know how her beef with Axanar was triggered).
RMB is smart, not near as much as Christian Gossett, but still smart nonetheless. I hope for the sake of his career that he doesn't cave and give in to LFIM's insane demands
The fight was a twitter fight. What she's reacting to is the fact that all the abusive tweets aimed at her were marked with the Axanar Twitter logo. She took screenshots of the tweet battle and showed the threads in the video.
I grew up with four sisters so I'm too well trained with the whole toilet seat thing. I needs to get my woman rants elsewhere.
So Alec hates Vic so when the allegations against Vic came out on the sexual harrassment stuff he went to immediately attacking Vic about the whole situation. Claims it is because he is trying to help the women but it is more that he hates Vic.
Now, the youtuber mecha42 is part of midnight's edge and hates discovery and loves Axanar and wanted to see it succeed to have "real trek". Was really the perfect ally for AP and commended a large audience on her own and as part of ME.
Well, she is part of the #istandwithvic movement. One a recent youtube video of hers talking about Vic, Alec got into the live chat and started being a jerk and saying bad things about Vic and brought up the "I am a lawyer" card. I know at least one other person in his camp got in the chat too and they all wound up getting kicked and blocked.
So now she has turned totally anti-anaxar when she could have been a supporter and has done at least 1 other video now attacking Peters, etc.
Total Peters made the studio decision to put up his own video attacking all the #istandwithvic people but made it unlisted so it wouldn't show on the axanar page. Somebody sent a link to Mecha and very shortly after he took it down.
If you want to see the crap go down, watch
20:30 Is where it gets real and he says the wrong thing to her.
TLDR; Alec hates Vic and let his hatred for Vic turn an ally into an enemy.
With adblock on, preferably.
It’s a pretty brutal takedown. From what others have said I don’t really think I’ll be checking out her other videos but Alec is on top form in the messages to her, mansplaining away about what it’s like for women dealing with sexual assault and berating her for not agreeing with him.
For someone supposedly championing women in these situations it’s a massive own goal as it just reveals his motivations as sticking the boot into Vic more than anything else. Not that anyone who’s been following the Axanar saga with open eyes would’ve expected anything else.
Interestingly, there's silence from Slow Lane. Nothing in his blog, no comments elsewhere backing up his BFF...or have I just missed them?
I had a housemate who was a total germophobe who always left the seat up...until I told him how much human waste gets thrown into the air in water droplets when you flush with the seat up. He puts the seat down now. It ain’t just about being considerate to women.
I think even Lane is smart enough to stay far away from this one.
It all seems so childish.
I was thinking about it the other day... nerd culture has WON. The big box office movies are comic books, the most talked about shows are about fucking dragons and zombies... But, nope. Instead of enjoying, they have to tear it down.
So very childish.
No one hates their culture like fans do.
It is fucked up. I don't understand that much self-loathing.
Don't like a show, don't watch it. You can tell me why, sure, I'll listen. But, spend that much time telling everyone how bad something is... Why? Is there nothing better to do?
Fandom has a funny way of turning me off to fandom sometimes.
It really does. It blows my mind sometimes.
and youtube feeds some of that too in that these people can make some good money by tapping into that vein of fandom
ALEX PETERS: Big win for Axanar!!!
We have cats, so not just seat down but also lid down.
It certainly is interesting what articles Alec allows Jonathan to write.
I have a question... have we seen any developments on the bridge? Last time we saw it there was a tonne of work still to do after Axacon, but since then - nothing.
Was it all just a ploy to get supporters and money? Say it isn't so...
Ay yi yi I just watched/listened to the last 18 or whatever minutes of that. And she's right – right now it's accusations. And maybe they will hold up. Maybe they won't.
Consider this. So many people (45 included) thought a bunch of guys were Central Park rapists, guilty as sin. Know something? They weren't. https://www.pbs.org/kenburns/the-central-park-five/
But yeah, egad, if you want to pretend to be for female victims, cut the mansplaining bullshit and let the damned thing go. Most people would have either just said good night to her as things went sour or blocked her. There's no reason to get the last word. Hell, the last word is often utterly unnecessary nonsense.
PS @Admiral2 if you would like female ranting, perhaps I could record something. Should it be about the seat being kept up, not wiping feet and tracking mud on my nice, clean floor, or why laundry never makes it to the hamper? Your choice.
