Question about canon [05 Jun 2011|06:45pm]

[ mood | curious ]

I'm not sure if anyone is still here, but I thought it was worth a shot =)

I've been watching (and rewatching) the season sets - and how much do I love that four of the five seasons are on DVD? *squee* - and, as is wont to happen when I go on a glom like this, I've had the urge to write a bit of fanfic. Early season fanfic, even! There's just one small hitch...

Does anyone know what the age difference is between Matt and Jenny - or even if there is one? I think Matt is supposed to be the oldest, but I could totally buy them being twins. There wasn't much made of it in the first season; instead, all of the characters are reiterating that they've known each other for twelve years. I'd also find it a little odd if the Garrisons had two kids very close in age, and then one eight years (or more) later. Odd, but not unbelievable.

Anyone have any ideas/theories?

Fanfic and episodes [10 Feb 2011|09:22pm]

*peeks in*

An interesting challenge was posed on a Kids Inc forum a few weeks ago, to cross KI with California Dreams. Boy, did mention of this show bring back memories! I used to watch both shows religiously back in the day - and since I've been on a nostalgia kick for the last year or so, it was far too easy to get back into this show.

So I took the challenge, and posted up my story a few days ago:

Title: Nice Guys Finish First
Fandom: California Dreams/Kids Incorporated
Universe: Canon crossover
Genre: Comedy/Friendship/Romance
Rating: T
Summary: When a gorgeous new girl begins attending Pacific Coast High, she unwittingly becomes the prize in a bet laid between Sly, Tony, and Mark. A riff on the subplot of episode 3x17, “Tiffani’s Gold.”

Links & Notes: here

If you read it, I hope you enjoy! =) I was pleasantly surprised to see a California Dreams section on FF.net, with relatively recent posts. Hooray! =)

In preparation for writing this story, I went on a YouTube bender, and composed a playlist of the episodes that've been posted, which you can find here. They are in production order, since apparently NBC/syndicates decided to air them out of order for some unbeknownst reason o.O

Yes the CalDreams DVD Release (1st two seasons) is apparently happening! You may let the folks know I've been helping to get everyone together for some interviews .... except Jay has moved to Australia ... so I don't think he will be in them!

California Dreams fandom history [11 Jul 2008|12:43pm]

Can anyone help edit the California Dreams article on Fan History Wiki? It could use a bit of work. Have there been any fandom kerfluffles? What are the influential fanworks in the fandom? What terms does the fandom use? any help in improving the article would be very much appreciated. :) Thanks!

Pics from meeting the Dreams in 1995. [03 May 2008|12:14am]

I'm only three years late in posting these. ;) Long story short, I won a trip to meet the cast of California Dreams a loooong time ago. Came across some of the pictures recently and decided to post. Please ignore that I was a most boyish looking thirteen year old girl. (I actually look like a woman now, LOL.)
Follow the fake cut type thingie for a few pics
It's been ages since I tried to do that linky thing; hope I got it right.

First post. :)

I can't believe I forgot to post until now.

A few weeks ago I went to Hollywood for a taping, and I went to Amoeba. The first place I went to were the posters. While I was looking through them I saw a clearance box of books. I went throught it and found a book of the cast of Saved by the Bell: The New Class. It was only $1 so I decided to buy it. As I'm waiting for my friends while they're looking through the store, I got hot so I started to fan myself with the book. As I'm fanning myself, I notice something familiar: on the other cover of the book is the cast of California Dreams. It turns out that half of the book is SBTB:TNC, and the other half is the cast of California Dreams. I'll post pics of it if anyone wants to see; It's in pretty good condition.

Just thought I would share. :)

Now if only I could find my California Dreams board game...

[27 May 2005|05:41pm]

Hey, I was wondering if anyone knows about the original version of "She's Not You"? I read somewhere that Jake sung a newer version, so does that mean that Matt sung this song first? Just a bit confused and need some clearing up!! LOL...

PS. If this is true, does anyone have this version?

Thanks for your time!
