PART ONE - Nolan Canova, the man behind Crazedfanboy.com is becoming a Florida Folk Legend of the 21st Century and a Pop Culture Icon. His web site which started over five years ago was originally called Nolan's Newsstand and then became Nolan's Pop Culture Review. When you enter his site, the title on the banner says, Welcome to Crazed Fanboy, A site devoted to the exploration of and commentary on Popular Home of Nolan's Pop Culture ReviewCulture.. Nolan's site is a mix of films, music, television, local, national, and world events, comics, politics, and anything that is pop culture. But it mostly focus on our community here in Tampa Bay. Through out the five years, Nolan has had a public access series, an internet video and radio show, a message board, and has been a great supporter of the local film scene. I first saw PCR on line three years ago and have been hooked ever since. Every Wednesday late afternoon, Nolan post his Pop Culture Review for the week. But Nolan isn't alone. He has columnist through out the country that write for his site. Crazedfanboy.com is the place to go to find out what is happening in the film scene and current events from around the world. You have a cast of characters of different writers with all different views. I believe Crazed Fanboy has a big impact on the community and it should be for the whole world. But most importantly, the site is for the fans, especially the crazed fans. And Nolan Canova is the ultimate Crazed Fan. So, we have to spread the word, and let everyone in the world know about this diamond in the rough.

This August Nolan was going to hold NolanCon, the ultimate convention for crazed fans. But due to financial problems, the event could be put on. So here's a tribute to Nolan and Crazedfanboy.com. We're going to let his site speak for itself with a list of issues that best sum up the site and the past five years. Enjoy.
