1826 days of #AlexOLoughlin fun – we are FIVE!

Wow – FIVE years! From then till now, 1926 posts later and sometimes I think we  posted something just the other day or even a few months back, and then when I look for it, it was already posted 2 or 3 years ago. I guess in the end it all blurs into random memories of stories and information and fun with Alex.

There are a lot of fans who have been following Alex’s career for last 10 years or even longer. I can name a few who are just as, or even more, dedicated to following him than in those early days. Your continued love and dedication, says a LOT about him. I have seen a number of you with great passion for him. Many fans and groups have come and gone over the years, but still there are a number of core members whose passion just continue to grow each day. Although we have only been following his career for 6 years, we are proud to regard ourselves as part of those dedicated supporters

To Paula’s amusement I have over the years made a lot of crazy suggestions for stories. Some never made it into posts on here, but some did. Way back in August 2013 just after we celebrated our first year here, we ran a whole Month of Mick. Three years ago, just as we celebrated our two years here, I started a 100 consecutive days of Hawaii Five-0 reviews of every episode since the pilot, just to celebrate the 100th episode.  That meant not only watching each episode again, but analyzing it a bit and doing screencaps for each one. In May 2014 we started posting all the article and interviews of Alex that we could find, and started with one of my favourite articles with him found in the link. Hours and hours of listening to new and old interviews, deciphering what was actually being said and doing transcripts for them followed after we started mad  idea of creating a complete archive of his work. And added to that also the retyping of the magazine scans …… and the job is not done yet, because there are still a few to be done.

Over the years we conducted studies of fun projects starting with Alex’s tattoos in the beginning and moving to his scars, his non-receiding hairline, the changes in his teeth, his non- rhynoplasty, his piercings scars, his favourite T-shirts, etc. Some of these subjects are in desperate need of follow-up posts with new and fresh information.

In the past we have taken a strong stand against reposting of fake pictures of Alex – and I will keep on commenting on them whenever I see them. But on the other hand we advocate the enjoyment of fan art for those who want to add their own touch to any pictures of him. Fake pictures being where Alex’s head is placed on other bodies and then posted as real pictures. And also where the original composition of who and how people feature on group pictures, were altered and then posted as real.

As with many others who use Alex for their art, we ourselves however love to single out Alex’s image in a pictures and use it for art by adding fun to him. Unfortunately it all sometimes seems to be difficult concepts for people to grasp.

Over the years we adjusted and changed with the times to keep things fun and intriguing  – even if it was old stuff that we posted (mainly for ourselves and not necessarily for others as such). For us something is not just what is written or said, but everything is also part of a specific time and place in a period of Alex’s career. And we like to connect the dots and search a bit deeper and give our opinion about it as well.

As with everything in life, the fun here of course also came with some heartache, frustration and disappointment at times – and sometimes that might have spilled over to some of our posts. Some of that frustration stems from people twisting what has actually been said here, to suit their own agenda or view.

As novices, none of it ever came easy for us, because we do not really have the luxury of special sources or the connections in the USA or even Hawaii, that some other site owners might have had in the past. But for us working with each other in the late hours of the night to find some Alex gems, hidden somewhere on the net, became a joy. And along the way we also connected with some friends who support us with kindness by finding some of the rare footage and sharing it with us.

Thank you to those who have supported us during all the years, by enjoying and sharing Alex with us!

We are and will always be proud of this unique little corner and haven of the Alex fandom that we created. Most of it has been done by adding our own touch and point of view to it, but it has always been coloured in by what you, our follow fans, added to it with your comments and ideas and spirit.

Thank you for that!

Our focus stays with Alex and what he offers us with his own work and conduct. Our passion remains to bring you the best and the most accurate information about Alex we can find, with a touch of our own flair. We like to keep it real as far as possible, with the main focus of reporting on Alex’s actual work, enhanced with pictures of his work or other footage we can find.

We are proud to be fans of this extremely kind soul who happens to find himself in an industry of big egos.

 

Here is to another year of Alex fangirling, until our ways should part one day!

      After the very first month when we posted most of our already drafted stories, I also got nervous and thought ‘how will we keep this going’ – and somehow it just happened 🙂

    I’m one of the oldsters, relatively, who has been an Alex fan since the Moonlight days. I have had a ball coming here, reading and enjoying pics as I followed y’all’s discoveries of stuff I already knew and loved about Alex. Awesome to have new fan-sisters! But I’ve had an even better time here as y’all Intense Studiers discovered, researched, and posted interviews, stories, and pictures I had never seen or known before. And all the new materials y’all post so quickly are always exciting to see and dish about! To steal a quote from Moonlight’s Beth regarding the daily give and take here, “we make a great team”. Thanks for all the fun, ladies! And congrats on yet another successful year! 😀

    Here’s to you on your Anniversary. I raise my glass in gratitude for giving us such pleasure and wish for you the traditional 5th Anniversary “wood” ( not going there or commenting on what kind of wood) and look forward to your 6th with a wish for you to enjoy a big box of traditional Chocolate candy.

  23. I thought about writing 1826 times Thank You. Because that would not even come close to what pleasure you are for the AOL fandom. But I did not want to burst the comment section (and I am kind of lazy). When you are married for five years here in Germany you celebrate your ‘Wooden’ wedding day. 😉
    But I think your special day deserves no wood (out of the gutter you naughty girls!!!) but more diamonds or pearls.
    Things that sparkle are in order.
    Thank you 1826 times. ❤

      Well, you’ll have to subtract the days when we did not make posts. And then subtract some for the bad posts. And then subtract some more for all the support you have already given us over the years, and then the one ‘Thank you’ is more than enough. 😀

      Think Alex would be just a bit scared of what might come next if he ever ventured here.
      Lucky for us, he said in an interview that he never “googles” himself.
      Wise man! 😛
