Archive reopened

30 July 2019 | Whoa is (Not) Me

Hi everyone, LucaM has stepped up to take over the archive updates, so we're good to go for at least a while more! And while you're reading, this is a reminder that Keanu is not on social media.

You're All Breathtaking

16 June 2019 | Whoa is (Not) Me

So this site has been getting an insane amount of traffic since Keanu broke the internet by existing. I'm sorry there hasn't been an update since March! I want to say hi to everyone who's new here and extend a warm welcome to you all. I ceased updates in February this year, but LucaM has been doing a fantastic job on that impossible task over at Keanu Archive Reloaded.

I'm currently in talks with the webmaster of keanu-reeves.org to port the articles archive over. Updates may continue there, but perhaps the archive – which I inherited from other Keanu fansites – is an artifact of the time when articles were transcripted by fans from magazine scans. Back then, every word that tumbled from the lips of The Anu was a rare and precious thing, needing to be catalogued lest it slip away and be lost forever in the sands of time. Now we have Google, and too many media sites, and anything Keanu says is instantly reposted and turned into relatable memes. It's a new era.

But – especially to all the younger fans out there – I invite you to slow down. There's a beauty in private fandom, discovering Keanu's movies on your own without the incessant chatter of other people's reactions and analyses and reviews and gifs.

The Keanu articles archive goes all the way back to 1986, and there are 11 years' worth of forum posts from fans. There's a movie and character database. There's music from his bands. There are scripts for his movies. There's this dumb video I made 9 years ago.

I hope you'll get happily lost within the archives of Keanu Reeves' life and the worlds of his characters and his films. I hope you'll find small moments of joy digging through all the stories they contain. I hope you'll stumble upon little things that delight you and that possibly no one else has seen in years.

I hope you have a most excellent time.

Keanu Articles Archive: Chapter Five

23 February 2019 | Whoa is (Not) Me

"As we watch him rebound from navigating a maze of cubicles with only the voice of a stranger as his guide to joyfully showcasing Yuen Woo-ping’s ecstatic fight choreography, we feel not only the wonder of this world the Wachowskis have created, but the joy of witnessing a star go supernova."

Thus ends the article by Angelica Jade Bastien, which will fittingly be the last to be posted to the WINM articles archive. The past ten years maintaining and updating the archive have been an interesting journey; but I no longer have the time and energy to spare, and the time has come for me to let go. Everything that has a beginning has an end.

I am still looking for someone (or a team) to take over the archive and continue it on another site. WINM was the fourth to host it, after the Garden of Keanadu, Reeves Drive and Club Keanu. I don't want its story to end here. But I also realise that the internet and fandom has changed a lot since 2008, and with the shift to social media platforms, fans no longer visit fansites like they used to. (Maybe we'll dodge bite the bullet and set up a Facebook page...)

In the meantime, LucaM will be continuing article updates over at the Dreamwidth blog Keanu Archive Reloaded. If you would like to join in posting articles there, or if you're a web developer who would like to take over curating the full archive (in static html files with an external CSS stylesheet, and article information in a MySQL database parsed with PHP) on another site, leave a comment or drop me a note at admin (at) whoaisnotme.net!

WINM itself will still be around at least until the end of 2020, if not beyond. But the archive will be frozen from now, although I might do regular link roundups to the Dreamwidth archive. For this site, one hope is to expand on its original fandom content, but I guess we'll just see where things go from here.

Thank you for all your support over these years. It's been an excellent adventure.

Hi everyone! Hosting fees for this site are due on 1 December, and come to about USD$130 for the next two years. I've been running WINM for ten years as of 2018, and the costs do add up.

So if you've enjoyed this site and would like to contribute to its upkeep, send in a donation via PayPal to admin(at)whoaisnotme(.)net. Any amount will be really appreciated, but please don't give if you're short on money, or know people who may need it more than I do (in which case, do donate to them!) Thank you so much to all of you who have helped out so far!

Instagram Scammers Alert

13 October 2018

Hi all, this is to alert everyone to a new wave of scammers on Instagram pretending to be Keanu Reeves. Their current mode of operation is to build up a friendship or romance with unsuspecting users, slowly gaining their trust before suddenly pretending to be in urgent need of money and asking for financial help.

Keanu is not on Instagram or any other social media. He has said so repeatedly. Please take care of yourselves out there. and inform any friends or family who might be particularly vulnerable to online scammers.

I've started a thread here with more information and instructions on how to report fake accounts. Thanks, everyone.

Dinosaur

I apologise once again for testing your patience this long, given that the previous dinosaur was posted more than two years ago. People born then are walking and talking by now.

So here's the Camarasaurus! It had a really thick neck, according to this photo, although that photo looks kind of fake and probably isn't real. The Camarasaurus was the most common sauropod in North America. It was also among the most well-preserved, which makes it kind of weird that it's not as famous as, say, the Brachiosaurus.

In fact, as mentioned in a previous dinosaur entry, perhaps what it's most famous for is for creating the illusion that Brontosauruses exist. The first 'Brontosaurus' discovered was actually an Apatosaurus skeleton wrongly mounted with a Camarasaurus' skull. It's pretty common for paleontologists to reconstruct a specific kind of dinosaur using bones from multiple dinosaurs of that species, since fully intact skeletons are rare and hard to find, and so sometimes bones from the wrong species end up in the mix.

Of course, all this is a lot less creepy when you're dealing with dinosaur skeletons. But who knows... a few hundred million years from now, paleontologists might dig up a whole bunch of human bones and try piecing them together into a skeleton, and the end result might include your rib bone, one of Keanu's vertebrae, and a tiny piece of his fossilized spleen.
