It has been very quiet on the Fassy front in the past few weeks, and that's primarily because he was spending quite time with family and friends for the holidays. And now that the new year is upon us, we should be seeing some fresh news on Michael any minute now. We do however have the London Critics' Circle awards in London on 20 January. I do not know if Michael will attend, he has won a Best Actor and a Best Supporting Actor award from LCC in recent years, so he is respected by them. But this year's Best Supporting Actor category is very competitive and any winner would be a deserving winner. Being biased, I want Michael to win, but I'm thinking Javier Bardem or Tommy Lee Jones will get it. Why? Skyfall is the best James Bond film and the most profitable of the series and its the 50th anniversary of the James Bond film franchise. The LLC would like to reward that film with an acting award. And I personally believe that Lincoln will win the Best Picture Oscar, so giving Jones the Supporting Actor award will add fuel to that thought. But in the end, I'm just pleased that a voting body did recognize the subtle brilliance of Michael's performance as an android in Prometheus.
blog to answer some new questions which will explore what is a Fassinator. Because the replies can be private in nature, please email Barbara your comments. However, here are her questions for you to consider:
1.Please provide information about yourself (age, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, nationality/ethnic identity, professional background)
2.How long have you been a Fassinator and how did you become a fan?
3.What attracted you to Michael Fassbender and/or his fandom?
4.What kind of a masculine ideal does Michael represent to you (if he does)? How is it different from other performances of masculinity in culture?
This is going to be absolutely fascinating so I wish Barbara good luck and I hope she gets a lot of diverse and interesting responses!
'Noir Couple' too. If I had only 1/8th her talent, I would rock hard and have money! Please have a look at her blog to review her other work.
Zazzle.com about my personal image of Michael that I used on select merchandise. Some of the products have been approved by Zazzle and available for sale since September. However, they have some new rules now and they do not allow a store owner to use even a private photo of a celebrity on merchandise through their company. They sent me an email on Saturday night, thankfully after Jhessye received her exclusive Fassinating Fassbender Michael Fassbender at TIFF 2011 cover notebook, that I can no longer sell that notebook and that they were removing it from my store. I tried to argue my point, but they said it was a company policy. Whatever. So I took the initiative and went ahead and removed the remaining few items that featured my personal pictures of Michael. I don't know, I guess in the grander scheme of things, Zazzle.com felt funky about making money off the image of a celebrity without that celebrity's direct endorsement. For instance, if the notebook that I created with my personal picture that I took from the front row at the Princess of Wales Theatre in Toronto was defaulted to the selling price of $12.99, for each sale, I only got $1.30 profit... Zazzle got the rest. They made the money, not me... so, it's their decision. Jhessye sent me a picture of her wearing her t-shirt, holding her coffee mug, and holding the Fassy notebook and she loves all her merchandise. I'm sorry if any of you missed out on buying it, the notebook is beautiful, smaller than the standard notebook and thereby making it more of a journal and a really unique awesome one of a kind thing. Only a few of us have one now. Anyway, there are still loads of cool Fassinating Fassbender stuff merchandise on sale for you to buy.
