It started about a week (heh, this was originally in my lj. by now it's been way more that a week) or so ago when I saw an entry in zimshan
's lj about the awesomeness of Enrico Colantoni.
Now, I've always loved Keith, he's my favorite thing about the show, and I've always appreciated the awesome job Rico does portraying him. But reading this entry kind of set off a spark in me, and I ended up thinking about how this guy really is underappreciated in the fandom.
So I left zimshan
a comment, pretty much WORD-ing everything she said, and at the end, I mention how I felt like starting a Rico Appreciation Project. And then she replied to my comment saying she could totally get behind such a project.
So I mulled this over in my head for a bit. I figured a Rico Appreciation Project was indeed a good idea and was something I wanted to plan eventually, but for now I should be devoting my efforts to saving the show.
But then a thought hit me. Father's Day.
Since Keith Mars is the best father on tv, I thought a cute idea for this project would be something Father's Day themed. And then this idea was backed up by brimtoast
, who gave me the most awesome idea. It's inspired by The Red Book
, a project the Lord of the Rings fandom did for Sean Astin. (who I personally always remember as Mikey from the Goonies) Anyone who wants to participate can create a page with whatever they want, and all the pages will be added to a book. I'm just gonna cut and paste from the IM, since she said it best: brimtoast
: and people could talk about Keith and how he's like their fathers or what he means to them and so onbrimtoast
: And you could fill the rest of the pages with screencaps/photos and quotes from Keith/Veronica scenes
I really love this idea, so I hope we can pull this off.
