Post-Fandom and the Millennial Blues: The Transformation of by Steve Redhead

By Steve Redhead

Football fandom has regularly been obvious as an very important a part of adolescent, often male, id making. In Post-Fandom and the Millennial Blues , Steve Redhead exhibits how this practice of juvenile tradition of fandom has been eroded within the final years of the 20th century via the extra fleeting, style aware allegiances encouraged by means of tv, movies and song. The golf equipment that youth stick to are made up our minds through advertisements and renowned tune; the video games that they watch are dropped at them by means of the globalized tradition of tv, as on the earth cup staged in the US; even their fears of so-called football hooliganism are made up our minds through media-engendered ethical panics at a time whilst the phenomenon itself looks demise away.

World Cup USA ‘94 in many ways has symbolised a mode of television coverage of sporting events beyond the continent of North America. For instance, the idea that events such as the World Cup will, in future, only be available on satellite or cable television is already an eventuality which citizens in Britain are having to contemplate as traditional terrestrial broadcasting continues to lose out in the competition for live events, confirming Sky as ‘both the paymaster and ringmaster’ of soccer (Fynn and Davidson, 1996).

Tarantino, famed for his scripts and filming for Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs, has been in major dispute with Stone over the eventual translation of Tarantino’s ‘tauter and leaner’ script into the director’s film. Nevertheless, what Tarantino in his ‘pulp theory’ actually does is to reflect a ‘post-postmodern’ attitude. His multiple references are to other films, or remakes of other films, and all the other facets of accelerated pop culture— videos, fast food, drugs, pop music, MTV, computer games, and so on.
