WHEN POPULAR CULTURE IS NOT ENOUGH ... Whoosh.org
Like a cockroach that refuses to die




Whoosh!
Vivimus ut serviamus

Welcome to Whoosh.org
Birthplace of the International Association of Xena Studies
Whoosh.org is what Whoosh is (I yam what I yam). It's been a fun and wild ride. I am happy it is still here.
Here be essays, articles, commentaries, episode guides, historic airing schedules, convention reports, boutique websites, uber fiction, various analyses of genre television shows and cinema, and a plethora of other materials concerning strong women in popular culture, popular women in strong cuture, and other stuff that strikes me as cool, weird, interesting, or fun (in a pleasant or not so peasant way). Welcome, make yourself at home, and stay a while. I'll put the kettle on and please, jump in anywhere.
Mi website es su casa.










The 12 Best Xena: Warrior Princess Episodes as Voted by the Fans
Join me as I walk down memory lane and review what the vibrant and massive internet fandom of XWP elected as the best and worst episodes of the entire show when they were still fresh in everyone's minds. Pull out the videos or DVD or tune into Oxygen and have yourself a fun time revisiting the best and worst, and when you are done partaking the visual and audio pleasures of XWP, check out the Whoosh.org articles and episode guide discussing the episode. Once you are solidly entrenched in the Xena-Zone, visit Laura Sue Dean's "News Gossip Rumors" and relive the absolute joy and nirvana it was to be a Xena-fan during the airing of what was one of the most exciting, exhilerating, internet-community-blossoming, mind-blowing, life-affirming experiences of the turn of the century. If you were there when it happened, oh the stories you can tell. If you weren't, lucky you - Whoosh.org is here as a monument and living record of how XWP transcended television, cheese-ball fantasy, and camp up the wazoo. ENJOY!!!!

WHOOSH! NEWS

02/21/2009. I need to clean up this site for posterity - it's a mess, but I keep it up in the meanwhile for those who do want to have access to it. Yes, I am still in my website funk. I haven't decided what I want to do with the website. The site is still getting around 3000 visitors per day (over 90K a month, over a million a year) so some people find the site still useful. There's so much more potential for this site, but to be honest, when Wes died a part of my soul went with him and it was apparently the part that fueled my web mojo.

12/23/2007. I actually puttered around on the main page today. Perhaps another false start or maybe I am am indeed coming out of my website funk? Only history will tell.

07/15/2007. Beware the Ides of July. Hear that Julius? I have a MySpace Page -- feel free to visit: http://www.myspace.com/ktaborn. I will be at Comic Con in July, so give me a holler if you want.

02/04/2007. Wow. Another post within a month of the last one. I must be coming out of my shell. The traffic is still growing at the site. Do I want to jinx it by actually updating something on the site? Stay tuned...

01/05/2007. I will be at the Burbank Xena Con 01/12/07-01/14/07 and staying at the convention hotel (Marriot now I think, was a HIlton?). If you get bored or just want to say hi, either hunt me down or leave a message for me at the hotel. Trust me, I am available.

06/24/06. It's the weekend WOO-HOO! I updated and reorganized the Adult Swim home page. I will be adding episode info later [yeah right!]. I also updated the 24 home page and added some short plot synopses to the first season.

06/18/06. Puttered around the site this morning. Made an archive for this area (see "Whoosh News Archive" below) and cleaned up and added some news to the Episode Guide General News area.

06/17/06. Mourning is b****. The spirit is willing but it takes a lot of energy to get up in the morning and as much as I love this site it is more difficult than I ever imagined to get back into the website frame of mind. But, tonight I added the shell of an episode guide (Hex -- thanks Bat Morda; you have helped me in some very crucial ways through this funk I am in, I will never forget it), and it has made me realize I could be adding a lot more shells here and there and have the illusion of some progress made at the site. I am sitting on a lot of articles that as soon as I recover my editng mojo, I will slap on the site. I am trying to find a microphone and mixer and then the podcast will happen. Baby steps!

01/17/06. The process of action is slow, but if you are patient, you will see some! My two television obsessions right now are Battlestar Galactica and Veronica Mars. We have in the works expanded episodes guides and articles for there shows. I also have some plans for expanding the film area. So thank you for bearing with me. My goal is to continue adding to the site and to clean it up and make it easier to use. Yeah, lifetime project I know. I cannot believe that in eight months we will be 10 years old. That is ancient on the internet! And I am shocked by out traffic. We will be hitting 200,000 visitors per month soon and that is making me feel lots of guilt on not working on the site more. Maybe I will make my son work on it too. I have already brought Cynthia out of retirment by bribing her with Veronica Mars DVDs. Who knows who else I can corrupt and manipulate? Stay tuned!
