So here it is, finally, the community for the fangirl* CKR catalog. Welcome! \o/

Because sometimes the information the IMDB has to offer is just not enough. Most importantly, it doesn't tell us if any given movie that credits Callum Keith Rennie is actually a movie we want to see. Is he in there for the whole movie? Or (much more probable) for a couple of minutes? Is he a good guy in this? Or (much more probable) some variation of creep? And the movie itself, good, bad, painfully bad? (See how I restrained myself and didn't offer any probabilities?) How does he look in it, how many people does he kill, will he take his clothes off?

The idea is to compile a complete catalog of CKR movies, including all the important information, as well as cross-references between the movies, actors, directors, filming locations and so on, via memories and LJ tags. And interviews, interviews as well. Print interviews and transcripts of radio and tv interviews.

If I did everything right I am the only one with posting access for now. And this will stay that way until the end of February, so I have time to work out the rules, find out what works and what doesn't, set up a system for the tags and the memories.

But after that I need volunteers, who are willing to take over for a period of time (either two weeks or one month), doing movie and interview posts. I think it's more important to have posts that are as complete as possible than to have many posts. I am aiming for one movie post a week. (This doesn't apply to interview posts, naturally) The first post will go up today or tomorrow.

Also, of course we need a banner for this community. Help? Banner-making CKR lovers?

Okay, I think that's it, anything I forgot?

*(or fanboy, as the case may be)

I really convinced myself that I fucked up the set up or something. /c\

So, yes.

the fangirl* CKR catalog
so we can help ourselves, yay, this had to be done!
I love the idea, the name, and the pic you have put on the profile page - it would make a great banner if I may say so.

Hee! Yes, indeed, so we can help ourselves. *dreams*

it would make a great banner if I may say so.

Um. That's... that's a good idea. I... okay. That's a good idea! *tries to find out how to do that banner thing*
Feb. 12th, 2008 10:24 pm (UTC)
Hey, you found out all right!
The banner is awesome, it's exactly it!

I'd like very much to volunteer but am very bad at committing (re: the abandoned state of my lj...). Depends on the period I guess. Maybe at least this will entice me into updating my lj more (shouldn't be difficult)
Feb. 13th, 2008 03:54 pm (UTC)
Well, I guess it will take about two years to do all his stuff. And I am thinking now about giving people posting access for one week/two weeks/three weeks, depending on how long they want it and on what they have to say. Maybe even two or three people could do posts together, it's not necessarily always up to one person. Maybe that's not so good an idea anyway. Too much pressure.

And yeah, your LJ is the one I always check after you left a comment in mine, just to remember that it was THAT LJ. *g*
Feb. 10th, 2008 11:50 pm (UTC)
Oh yes, the pic on the userinfo page is just perfect.

I hope you get bunches of awesome volunteers because WOE I cannot be one myself. :o(

But yay, you're doing it! It's gonna be awesome!!!eleven!
Feb. 11th, 2008 08:44 pm (UTC)
Isn't it? *g* And, yeah, like neu111 said, it would totally make a good banner. \c/

because WOE I cannot be one myself. :o(

Well, you know, I said about one movie per week. If we manage to do that, we will be done in about two years. Maybe you would be able to find some time for LJ within the next two years. :)

And yes, yay!
Feb. 11th, 2008 12:17 am (UTC)
The banner is awesome.
Feb. 11th, 2008 08:45 pm (UTC)

Um. Which one? The one in the user info or the one, uh, here?

If you can be patient (I'm in the process of moving right now) - I can help out with Memento when the time comes. I have the 'rare' making of book and can copy over anything that mentions Callum, along with a lot of high res screen caps.

I volunteer for help with an of the Leoben stuff too.
Feb. 11th, 2008 08:51 pm (UTC)
Oh, I can be patient. Like I just told Di; with one movie post per week? We will be done in about two years. *g*

So, yay, that would be awesome if you could do some posts. But about the high res caps... this is not a picspam comm. Actually, I will try to keep the pictures in the actual posts to a minimum. It's more about collecting as much of the available information about a movie as possible. I will do the first post tomorrow (I meant to do it today but I doubt that I'll manage it). And another one in a week. And I guess then we could try to find out what's important for a post and what should just be linked. Or something. Ahem.
Feb. 12th, 2008 05:01 pm (UTC)
Oh, thank god for this. Eventually, I can stop whimpering "Calllum?" at the C6D chats 'cause I'll know when he's going to show up, thanks to this comm. Yay!
Feb. 12th, 2008 08:33 pm (UTC)
*beams* Um. You realize that it will take a while to have all his movies in here, right? Yeah.

But yay, thank you!
Feb. 12th, 2008 08:12 pm (UTC)
As far as I know, I'm the only one that's seen 'Sleepwalking' as of right now, though it was bought and will be in theatres before too long. I did a review in my LJ and would be happy to expand on it for this. Let me know!
Feb. 12th, 2008 08:41 pm (UTC)
Ooh, that would be great. I will keep the posting access to myself for another two weeks or so, like I said, to find out what works and what doesn't, but I will put up a new mod_post soon. So everyone can comment and say if they would like to do something and what and when and for how long. So, yay, thank you! <3
(And your review was awesome!)
Feb. 13th, 2008 05:18 am (UTC)
It's all perfect. ♥ Also, the phrase on the banner pic could not have come along at a better time. *g*
Feb. 13th, 2008 03:55 pm (UTC)
Hee, yes! I am convinced they did this for us. \c/
Feb. 17th, 2008 08:12 pm (UTC)
Wonderful idea! If you're interested in affiliating with ckr_actorfic, please let me know. *g*
Feb. 20th, 2008 07:44 pm (UTC)
Thank you! *beams*

And about ckr_actorfic... hmm. Not sure yet. But thank you, I will let you know when I made up my mind.
Jul. 24th, 2008 12:49 am (UTC)
Omg, I just found this, it's WONDERFUL!! (And I was so excited about it that I accidentally hit "join" instead of "watch", sorry :P)
So yeah, this is such an awesome idea that I just had to say you're great :D
Aug. 4th, 2008 10:19 pm (UTC)
\c/ I am glad you like it!

And I was so excited about it that I accidentally hit "join" instead of "watch", sorry :P

I am really not sure if I can forgive you for that. :P
