    A Siberian Lesson

    Something enlightening happened to me along the tracks of the Trans-Siberian. Awaiting departure from Sverdlovsk station, I was in my seat, reading an English-translated copy of 'Crime and Punishment'. Gratifyingly, I discovered the 1938 edition inside a used bookshop in Yekaterinburg. I was...

    Playing Fire Emblem: Three Houses and one character told another, "Recall that impatience begets error." A good counterpoint to "hesitation breeds regret"?))

    I saw this story about severely underpaid animators yesterday and it makes me very sad: https://twitter.com/NegiKitsu/status/1175197791649509376 Someone in the replies cast doubt on it actually being Carmen, but I'm not prepared to dismiss it.

    Things are hectic rn, my family is wack, and there's been at least one attempted murder. 1) I'm starting to get more suspicious about my goat disappearing 2) there's no conversation about anything that's been happening recently that would take THAT LONG 3) I'm dying (not literally), Scoob

    I hear you. I've been a fan for a LONG time. Where in the USA is Carmen Sandiego? was the first video game I remember playing. The reboot reignited my love for Carmen and ultimately led me here, as I'm sure it did with others around the same time, but my favorite thing about this site other than the people is that it's NOT about the reboot. I enjoy the new show for the sake of entertainment and nostalgia, but it's not the best thing to ever come out of the franchise. Far from it. I'm glad that the Carmen fans, new and old, are coming out and coming together.))

    Once the dust from the reboot has settled, I hope we are all still here, tarrying on in our adventures born of the fandom and grown and refined by our imaginations. I hope the new fans that come from the reboot - particularly the ones that find their way here - will remember where the fandom came from and celebrate la notre dame rouge as she deserves to be celebrated. Thank you for coming to my TED talk. Carry on.))

    I agree with you on all counts, @Claire Yeon, and would add that I hope new fans won't just remember where she came from but seek it out. Unfortunately, I don't hold out much/any hope for either.
