We Want to Believe in X-Files Ice Cream!

Maybe you have heard that a little show called The X-Files is making a return to our entertainment world next year and it begins shooting today!

My friend Andrea (perhaps you’ve read about her Wall of X?) and I thought that this momentous occasion needed to be marked in some important way – and that way is through ice cream my friends. Specifically Ben & Jerry’s ice cream as they are known for making special pop-culture themed flavors!

To that end we have started a petition and we want you to sign it! It’s quick, easy, fun and hey, we may get some Mulder and Scully themed creamy cold tasty goodness out of it!

Find it HERE and please sign, don’t be left celebrating a new season of The X-Files with only tofutti rice dreamsicles to eat 🙂

Kudos to Andrea for making this!

Fangirl Favorites: Who do we want? Mulder and Scully! When do we want them? NOW DAMN IT!

Sarah and I were pretty hardcore X-Files fans, so when it was announced in 1997 that XF would be the “lead-out” program after the Superbowl, we were pretty excited.

We went to a party at the apartment of the guy I was dating at the time (which may in fact be the only Superbowl party I’ve ever been to come to think of it!) And after the game was over Fox went on and on and ON with their trophy presentation and post-game critiquing. It was getting pretty late and we had jobs to go to in the morning.

Now you have to remember – this was 15 years ago – we didn’t have YouTube, Hulu, online streaming or DVRs. We could set the VCR to record it – but I feel like there was some sort of problem with that (no tapes? no idea when to set it for? roommate taping conflicts? Who knows.) Sarah started getting more and more aggravated at the denial of Mulder and Scully and her ever later bedtime.

Finally she’d had enough and did what any good Fangirl would do: she called the local affiliate and went all Assistant Director Walter Skinner on their asses demanding to know when the X-Files would be airing and-didn’t-they-know-people-had-to-work-in-the morning-and-couldn’t-stay-up-all-night-waiting-for-the-post-game-to-be-over-and-the-show-to-come-on??!!

I believe the local station wasn’t much help – and to be honest with you – I don’t even remember if she finally gave up and went to bed or powered through to see it! But I always remember her utter OUTRAGE at being denied her show when she was promised it. That’s my girl!!

This had nothing to do with the episode in question, it's just my favorite M/S pic!

Fangirl Favorites: The Truth is on The Wall

My friend Andrea is The Ultimate X-Files Fan. And I say this with great reverence because I’ve known some serious XF fans, I am a full-on XF fan. However, myself and the rest all pale next to Andrea.

Here’s just one example why – this is a photo and quote montage she sets up wherever she lives:

And you can’t see it here, but trust me – it went from floor to ceiling. The first time I saw this I just stared open jawed for an embarrassing amount of time (being that I had just met the girl!) Then I read every single quote and reviewed every single pic. Her attention to detail in pairing the quotes with the pictures and her artistic eye for putting them all together is really impressive. I love The Wall. I covet The Wall. I miss The Wall because she’s moved and is still putting it all back together again.

Being a resident of New York, she had to make preparations for Hurricane Irene this weekend. I got a text with this photo titled “hurricane prep”:

Now THAT is a Fangirl!! She also put her entire XF DVD collection as well as some very cool memorabilia in plastic bags in her closet for safety! Thankfully all is dry and safe so she can get back to work bringing The Wall to it’s former glory 😉
