15 MORE Fandoms

We've covered this topic twice before (here, and here), but the list of fan bases with their own unique monikers seems to only be growing. Some of this, I suspect, is directly related to the rise of social media platforms, but Twitter and Tumblr in particular, as great gathering places for, uh, devoted fans from across the globe.

And man, these fans take that whole"fanatic" thing and run with it. So here's a rundown of a few more fan base names that you should know, especially if you Tweet... Also, am I inviting the hatred and vitriol of thousands of devoted fans with my assessments of these names? LET'S WAIT AND SEE!

  • Fifth HarmonyHarmonizers - Fifth Harmony fans. They have a special affinity for - and with - Directioners. 
  • Mahomies - a cute play on Austin Mahone's last name. I approve.
  • Hooligans - this is what Bruno Mars' fans call themselves after his album Doo-Wops and Hooligans. Considering the term "hooligan" typically means a violent, young, deviant person, it's hard to see how that aligns to Mars' pretty clean-cut, approachable and damned adorable persona! Uptown funk you up, indeed...

Week in Review

Kid Theater “Magic Mike Edition”

Source: YouTube.com

Channing Tatum stopped by Studio 6B for a recent episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon in support of the upcoming film, Magic Mike XXL. While there, he and Fallon partook in a “fun thing” where they performed a few scenes from the new film. However, instead of performing actual scenes from the movie they reenacted scripts written by elementary aged kids. The children’s only direction for writing their scripts? Write a scene based on what they think a movie titled “Magic Mike” would be about. The funny thing is a few of these scripts could definitely be misconstrued into something much less innocent than they really are.

MLB All-Star Game

The 2015 MLB All-Star Game is less than three weeks away and is being hosted this year by the Cincinnati Reds at Great American Ball Park. Baseball fans should expect some runs to be scored, as the ballpark ranks seventh in park factor, a stat created by ESPN that determines if a stadium favors hitters or pitchers. Even without that statistics, Great American Ball Park has always had the reputation of being more of a hitter’s park, featuring more home runs than most stadiums.

There’s plenty more to enjoy than just the 86th edition of the game on Tuesday, July 14. The day prior, Yoenis Céspedes of the Detroit Tigers will look to win his third consecutive Home Run Derby. On Sunday, the SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game, and the All-Star Legends and Celebrity Softball Game will be at the stadium, providing three uniquely different ways to experience baseball at the ballpark.

Grateful Dead

Legendary singer-songwriter James Taylor will be hitting the road this summer in support of his most recent album release on June 16, Before This World. Before This World, which features contributions from artists Yo-Yo Ma and Sting, was Taylor's first batch of new songs in 13 years, as his 2002 album, October Road, had stood as his most recent album until now.

James Taylor’s tour will kick off on July 2 in Allentown, PA. Although the tour is roughly just a month long and stays mostly around the east coast, the Massachusetts native has some major dates in store, including Boston's Fenway Park on August 6 with Bonnie Raitt. Massachusetts fans should get excited; Taylor is set to sing his new track, "Angels of Fenway," which is a song about the Boston Red Sox's legendary comeback to win the American League Championship Series in 2004 against the New York Yankees.
