The March 2023 issue highlights new beginnings and renewed favorites 🌱
No matter where you are in the world, March is a time of imminent refresh, and new seasons bring a welcome shift of perspective. In the Northern hemisphere, the vernal equinox marks the turn from winter to spring 🌷; in the Southern Hemisphere, the autumnal equinox brings the fall 🍁. At Remarkist, we are ushering in new seasons too. Starting this March and continuing through the end of May, we will be jumping into our new Official Slate, watching Abbott Elementary 🍎, the Star Wars 🌒 Franchise films, and tackling not one but two creeks together: Dawson’s Creek 🛶 and Schitt’s Creek 👨❤️👨! All watch party/discussion events will happen in our Audio Dens on the Remarkist app, so if you haven’t yet gotten your membername, now is the time! Our Slate will feature Remarkist members as event hosts, and we invite any and all creators who are fans of these shows to join us in creating fan content through the app. So, if you’ve been secretly recording a Dawson’s Creek podcast or making Schitt’s Creek parody TikTok videos, hit us up! We want to hear from you!
Did you miss last month’s content? Let’s be kind, rewind: February is the month of love ❤️, so we started things off with fandom-inspired Valentines, of course! From Parks & Recreation to The Last of Us, our nod to grade-school V-Day cards you’d pass around to your classmates as a kid spoke to the love we share with friends, family, significant others and, well, zombies. For a healthy debate on whether The Last of Us’s monsters are zombies or simply “Infected,” join our The Last of Us Discord Forums or drop into one of the weekly audio events for the series happening in our app. You’ll find many of us arguing over it from now until the end of the world. Or at least until next season.
February is also Black History Month, and naturally, we celebrated the Remarkist way: by taking a look at what’s going on in Black fandom. We highlighted some of our favorite creators and Black nerds in the fandom space who are changing the game. From YouTube creators and Instagram accounts to podcasters and merch designers, these innovators are taking the love of story and cosplay to new levels.
We also found a new fun game: putting images of our beloved characters Lorelai and Rory from Gilmore Girls into other franchises through AI. Ever want to see Lorelai and Rory as Transformers? As the Stranger Things kids? As Simpsons characters? We went there. And since everyone’s talking about TV nostalgia these days, we wanted to make sure our readers know about some of the coolest rewatch podcasts out there. From Boy Meets World to Friday Night Lights, we found the best podcasts 🎙 featuring hosts that were actors on the shows themselves that you should be listening to.
Looking ahead, we are super excited about March! We were downright giddy at the announcement of Ted Lasso Season 3 ⚽️, so naturally, we chose our favorite coach for our cover. And there’s so much more anticipated content coming our way in March! Daisy Jones & the Six, Dungeons & Dragons, and Scream VI–all of these new shows and films will keep us busy until spring…or fall, depending on where you are in the world. And if you’re like us and have reached the end of your streaming queue, get into some international shows! We found some German 🇩🇪 TV shows on your favorite platforms. See? March has something for everyone!
And, of course, rmrk*st aims to highlight community members every single month. Read our latest Memento Insights roundup from February, and stay tuned for a highlight of our Jukebox Jams sessions: community-led listening parties 🎶 whose playlists can always be found on our Spotify page!
We do have a question for all of you: why aren’t you following us on social media?! (If you are, thank you! Blame the Ides of March for our cast of doubt.) But seriously, you can find exclusive fannish content on our Instagram feed and Tumblr. And we want to see what you’re up to in your fandom spaces too! Tag us in your fandom artwork, and we might feature you on our IG stories for our weekly Fan Art Fridays! 🎨
Take a look at the Table of Contents below for the month ahead. We’ll update this post throughout March as we publish content, adding quick links to each. Until then…
