Well, I guess I'll answer my own challenge. I was thinking about popcasting Supernatural.

obviously, there are spoilers for the entire series in hereCollapse )

Okay, that's all I've got for now. :)

Yesterday, while pondering various popcasty things, I thought of a challenge, or activity of sorts for this community:

Take your favourite tv show of the year, and popcast it! There are tons of tv shows on the air that are begging to be popcast: Supernatural, Veronica Mars, Lost, CSI, Prison Break, SGA, Grey's Anatomy, Desperate Housewives, House, Gilmore Girls, etc. Comedy, drama, new, old, whatever. It would be good if it was a current show, but if you've thought of a great Full House popcast, go right ahead! You don't have to have it all worked out, just post your ideas and see what other people think. I know they're are lots of fans of these shows out there, so now that all the season finales are here, look back on the season and put your sparkly boys (and girls) in there. :)

I made a poll in my journal about who you think should play whichever role in RENT, mostly because in my head there are any number of possibilities for any one role. Feel free to disregard voice ranges and role overlapping, or the fact that Joey played Mark.

Poll here!

I realize that there may be only one other person who has seen Sky High, but popcasting it filled my bus ride today, so I thought I'd throw it out there.

Is there any doubt who our superhero is?Collapse )

And if you haven't seen this movie, you really should. It's adorable and funny and sweet.

HI COMATOSE COMMUNITY. Just because I never call or write or visit doesn't mean I don't think about you when the rain's trickling down my window (not that it is. but it could be.)

come on! my so-called life!Collapse )

Any ideas on a Lost popcast? I've been thinking about it for a while now and I'm completely stumped.

I was thinking maybe Kevin as Jack. Responsible leader and he has dark hair? Some people think he's a bit boring? I don't know. I also liked the idea of Shannon and Boone being Nick and Justin. Charlie could be AJ, but I think he could also be a good Sawyer. I really like pregnant!Britney, so she could be my Claire, but I also really like pregnant!JC. Heh. Maybe Hurley is Chris. Or Joey, possibly.

But who could be Sayid? Or Locke? And I'd really love someone to come up with a lovely pairing for Sun and Jin. I'd just like someone to come up with a convincing argument for any popcast of Lost. Except Kate. No one in the world of pop deserves to be associated with that witchy tramp. ;)

Also, I'm going to be away for a couple of months, so I'd just like to encourage you guys to post away if you feel like it. Think of all the summer blockbusters coming out that you could take on. I hope you play while I'm away, as long as you play nice. :)

Briefly, Dirty Dancing.

So, to me, Lance is the perfect Baby. And that's without even taking into account that Baby was played by Jennifer Grey (nose job!!). But Lance. I can just picture him wanting into this dirty dancing world, but he's awkward and can't dance and he never knows quite the way to do things, so he ends up telling people he carried a watermelon. He, like everyone, is in love with JC (Johnny Castle - JC = JC! Also, Patrick Swayze wrote the classic "she's like the wind" which is totally a song JC could have written) the gorgeous dance instructor. And can JC ever move! He dances with his sassy partner Justin, and they're totally the golden couple, but Justin gets pregnant (not by JC, he'd never do that!) and needs to get an abortion, because lord knows how they delivered mpregs in the 60s. So in comes Lance to learn how to dance and fall in love with JC. And yadda yadda yadda, after some awesome scenes of JC and Justin teaching Lance to dance, and then JC and Lance in the water practicing thier lifts, it all culminates with "Nobody puts Lance in a corner!" and a perfect jump from Lance into the arms of his lover JC. They will have had the time of their lives.

As for the other nsyncers, perhaps you'd like to sort them out with the other characters. I personally like the idea of Joey as Baby's sister, just for the talent show performance. Or perhaps you have a different casting entirely. Or perhaps you haven't seen Dirty Dancing (wtf?).

Also, I thought I'd throw out a challenge for someone to popcast Desperate Housewives. I've never seen the show, but it seems to me it would be ripe for popslash, what with there being 5 housewives. Bonus points if JC is not Eva Longoria's character. ;) If you're a fan and you've got some ideas, post away!

A big thank you to everyone who filled out the poll for me. Very helpful!

So I've chosen a tv show someone mentioned that I've thought of before myself. Friends. You guys all know Friends, right? The show about a group of 20-somethings, who are friends? Anyway, I here's my casting idea, but I think arguments could be made for a lot of casting. And I'd love to see a BSB recast - I don't really know them well enough to do it.

Joey = Joey. Duh! This to me is the only no brainer.
Phoebe = JC. I just love the idea of JC writing Smelly Cat and singing about grinding up cow into hamburger to little kids.
Monica = Justin. Three words: Obsessive compulsive disorder.
Chandler = Chris. Sarcastic, self-deprecating, smart, likes to be completely immature with Joey. And you get a cute little timbertrick couple.
Rachel = ?
Ross = Lance?

I don't know about Ross and Rachel. Ross is hard for me - I'm saying Lance because I can see him being a bit geeky as a kid (karate and writing songs on his casio) and then growing up but still being a bit dorky (getting trapped in his leather pants, whitening his teeth too much, marrying a lesbian). I can also see Justin and Lance growing up doing dance routines together. HA! But I can't think of someone to be Rachel - someone that Lance would be totally devoted to his whole life. Maybe Justin. Or I think you could make a case that Lance is Rachel but then who's Ross? Maybe Nick could be Rachel and Kevin could be Ross? I don't know. I think maybe JC could be Rachel and Lance could be Ross, but then I don't know who Phoebe is. Maybe AJ? Any ideas? And who would be Janice? Or you could now tell me your favourite scene/episode in popslash terms. Like, I love the idea of Lance shouting PIVOT! And JC learning to ride a bike.

I hope I didn't scare you all away from posting! It's hard coming up with topics that I think everyone has read or seen. I hope I'm not that out of touch with what's popular with the kids these days.

my choice for this weekCollapse )

Also, I would love for you to fill in the following poll so that I have an idea of what you guys have seen and are interested in popcasting. Because I want to choose ones that most people can participate in, and I'm not sure if I have a wacked out sense of what's popular. Like, maybe I'm the only one who want to popslash Saved By the Bell (if that's true, it's really your loss). And I've never seen Buffy, so I wouldn't think to recast it, but I have a feeling a lot of you would. Right. So fill in as many of your favourite movies/shows/books and if you run out of room, feel free to comment with more. :) EDIT: trumpeterofdoom suggested musicals and doh! silly me. Of course not all musicals/plays have been made into movies, so feel free to suggest some in the other category.
Poll #488206 recasting suggestions

Name some movies you'd like to popcast:

Name some tv shows you'd like to popcast:

Name some books you'd like to popcast

Any other popcasting ideas?

Alright. Based on your comments and my own reflections, I'm going to make this an open community. I'll still probably make weekly posts, but you should all get to post too. Because the whole point of this community is to encourage discussion, and as it was rightly pointed out, when you get an idea for sparklecasting you have to get it out right away before you forget it. Also, I know most of you and I trust you enough not to post things like, "OMG please go sign my petition to get Ashlee to come play at my school!!!1!!!" Of course, if that starts to happen for some bizarre reason, I can change to settings so that I approve posts before they get posted. But that won't happen, right? Right. Don't say you weren't warned kiddos.

So as of now, if you are a member of this community, you are able to post. Please keep posts on topic, the topic being pop recasting. I suspect most posts will be recasting ideas and discussion, but if you would like to post fic or artwork or something of that kind, that's totally welcome. It's not necessary, but if you are posting about a movie/tv show/book, it would be nice to include a link to a synopsis (like imdb or amazon) and character list. That way if we're not familiar with the source material, we can at least follow along. You can go into as much detail as you like. Personally I think the more the better, but it's up to you. Okay. I don't know if there are any other questions or anything else that needs to be address. If so, let me know. Otherwise...

Can we get to the fun stuff? To start things off I tried to think of a movie that everyone has seen, so I went with something recent.

drumroll pleaseCollapse )

Happy posting everyone!
