"The Philosofan" is a 'Video Review Show' show on Geekvision and the That Guy with the Glasses forums dealing with the anthropological side of fandom, & geek culture, & fangirls. Lots of fangirls. It is created and hosted by TBelle, AKA Haley Baker, AKA Trickster-Belle.
In addition to her Philosofan videos, she has also begun a new series entitled "Art Theory at Disneyland", analyzing Disneyland from an artistic standpoint.
Her videos can be seen here.
