The Stages of Movie Geek Evolution Apply to Many Fandoms, Really

i'll just leave this here

The Droid You’re Looking For‘s taxonomy of cinema enthusiasts charts a familiar arc, from innocent enthusiasm, to various stages of self-education, to hipsterdom, and then finally the most evolved sort of geek: the one that just wants everybody else to be as happily interested in their fandom as they are.

Sometimes, of course, you never really stop being Blockbustericus but manage to get most of the way to Celluloid Sapien anyway. At least, that’s what I keep telling myself.

Susana Polo thought she'd get her Creative Writing degree from Oberlin, work a crap job, and fake it until she made it into comics. Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
