'The Canadians' - parody web series

Spotted this on Twitter today.

'Because every great show deserves a great parody' (per the Exec. writer/producer), the comedy website Funny or Die has released season 1 of 'The Canadians,' about two American spies living undercover in Canada with their daughter Paper and their son who appears only with a big question mark over his face in the opening credits, but otherwise never appears in any episodes.

Each 'episode' is 2-3 minutes long. It's all quite hilarious.

2017 Preliminaries

Jun. 24th, 2017 11:48 pm
[personal profile] genexmod posting in [community profile] genex
Tentative schedule:
Nominations: 27th June - 5th July
Signups: 7th - 15th July
Works due - 1st/2nd September
Works revealed - 9th September
Creators revealed - 16th September
Does this schedule work? Any issues?
(I do have issues with moving these dates very much, in that my Internet is limited to my phone until my home Internet gets repaired, around the 27th-28th, maybe the 29th or 30th at the worst, and I can't accept nominations very quickly on my phone, and I will have limited time from the 19th for about a week and a half due to prior IRL obligations).

Rules and FAQs have been revised. New FAQs are here; old FAQs can be found here.

Nominations:
The tagset from last year is here. Does the grouping of fandoms work? In particular,
  • Tolkien as The Silmarillion, The Lord of the Rings books, The Lord of the Rings movies, The Hobbit books, and The Hobbit movies
  • Marvel - MCU, individual TV shows, comics under their own 'verse (no overall Marvel comics tag)
  • Ditto for DC
  • Star Wars is split into Originals, Sequels, Prequels, Rebels, Clone Wars, Legends, and comics
  • This year, I'd also like nominators to refrain from All Media Types tags as much as possible
If there are any issues you spotted last year, or if you think this grouping doesn't work, please leave a comment.

Rules and FAQs (revised for 2017)

Jun. 24th, 2017 11:31 pm
[personal profile] genexmod posting in [community profile] genex
GenEx is an exchange for '&' relationships (i.e. gen relationships.)

Rules and FAQs from last year.

Rules
  • Romantic and/or sexual relationships should not be the main focus of the work.
  • You must either drawn clean lineart with at least basic coloring, inking, shading etc. (no graphics or photomanips allowed) or write a fic with a minimum of 1000 words. Work must be of adequate quality to be gifted. DNWs stated in the signup should not be included in the work.
  • Authors cannot deanon by mentioning their name in the work before the anonymous period is over. Artists can insert a watermark if they wish to. Crossposting is not allowed until the anonymous period is over.
  • There must be a working email address attached to your AO3 account so I can contact you.
  • Don't wank in exchange spaces, don't be rude.


FAQ
How many fandoms and relationships can I nominate?
You may nominate up to 7 fandoms, with a maximum of 7 characters in each fandom.#

Can I nominate more than two people in a relationship, for example A & B & C?
Yes.

Can I request [character] & any?
Yes.

How many fandoms and relationships can I request?
You may request a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 10 fandoms, with a minimum of 1 and a maximum of 20, or any (any relationship in the tagset), relationships.

How many fandoms and relationships can I offer?
You may offer a minimum of 4 and a maximum of 10 fandoms, with a minimum of 1 and a maximum of 20, or any (any relationship in the tagset), relationships.

Are crossover relationships allowed?
Yes. Crossover relationship must be nominated under 'Crossover Fandom'.

Are original works allowed?
Yes. Relationships for original works must be nominated under 'Original Works'.

How does matching work?
You will be matched on a minimum of one fandom and one relationship within that fandom. If no-one has offered what you've requested, your requests will be sent out as an initial pinch hit. If no-one has requested what you've offered, I'm afraid you'll have to add pairings/fandoms to your signup or drop out of the exchange.

Are treats allowed?
Yes!

What are the minimum requirements for treats?
There aren't any.

Is there a seperate collection for treats?
No. Treats go in the main collection.

I need an extension!
Please contact me at least 12 hours before the deadline if you need more time. I cannot give extensions that are closer than 72 hours to the time of reveals.

Is there a penalty for defaulting?
No. However, if you're defaulting due to issues with the assignment etc, please remember that if you default earlier I have more time to find an initial pinch hit.

Do I need to tag my work with the & relationship on AO3?
No. The tags in the tagset are for matching purposes; as long as the work contains a requested gen relationship between characters you're fine.

I left a comment on LiveJournal/left an ask on Tumblr/messaged you on Tumblr and you haven't replied.
There is only an RSS feed on LJ; I don't get notifications for comments on the feed. The Tumblr is for promotional purposes only. Please direct all question to the DW comm or email me at genexmoderator@gmail.com .

How can I contact you?
Leave a comment on this post, or email me at genexmoderator@gmail.com

I have a problem with my assignment/gift.
Please contact me privately and I'll see what I can do. (If you've matched with someone who hasn't requested at least one of your offered relationships in one fandom you've offered, I can fix that, but I can't swap assignments around. And yes, I can deal with gifts which break the rules.)

Some people put on giant bat costumes and adopt random children off the streets and teach them to beat up children to COPE, nonnie.
