Joss and Eliza!

talk Dollhouse.



Angel on TNT

To all the lazies (myself included) who are waiting for Angel to start over on TNT, the wait is over. On Monday, the second showing of the morning will be "City Of". The first showing is "Not fade away." So it's the finale followed by the premier at 6 am and 7 am, respectively. Set your DVRs!

Chick Fight!

Not sure I'm so keen on the concept or phrase "chick fight" since it so often calls to mind frat boy wet dreams of sweaty, heaving bosoms, hair pulling, and orgasmic moaning for no reason. All that said, when I happened upon IGN's latest poll of epic retardation, I couldn't help but make mention of it here. The poll is essentially two powerful, pop culture, heroines going toe to toe. We already missed Buffy winning in a poll against Summer Glau's jail bait terminator. As if it were even a question, Buffy wiped the floor with River Tamm's bony ass much to my relief.

But now she of the red, leather pants is facing off against non other than she of the overall black leather...

Yeah. Jessica "Dark Angel" Alba. I'd say we have nothing to fear but I think we all know how dudes have a tendency to leave shame stains on the front of their trousers at the mere thought of Little Miss Sin City up there.

Your mission, if you choo choo choose to accept it is to to click on the picture of the greatest ass kicker of them all (by which I mean Buffy and not some other greatest ass kicker of them all who I guess might exist in an alternate dimension that I'm unaware of but is probably still Buffy except instead of leather she wears alot of teri cloth for some reason) and vote your Slayer loving hearts out.

Here's our girl:



Now do your solemn duty and stake the shit out of Alba's overly inflated chest.

Joss Whedon - About Buffy Franchise's Future - Ign.com Interview

aww:

IGN : I think I’m legally obligated to ask - Did that reunion inspire you to think, "Maybe one day we could do something again with Buffy in live-action" ?

Whedon : I never don’t think that, but I also [think about] the legal reality of the thing and the busyness of all our schedules – I’m happy to say they’re all working and so am I. It didn’t make me think about it more, because it’s always part of me. I’ll never let go of the story. I’m still working on the damn comic ! But the reality of the thing is so complicated that I’m like, if somebody comes to me and says, "Everybody’s signed on and it’s all good…" Otherwise, it would just be like I’d start to obsess about it. I shut it down, because I will break that story, and I’ve got to stop myself.

Lush Body Butter


Very lengthy (and sorta silly) review of the "Buffy" body butter bar from Lush. I've been using this thing for about 7 years and it's by far my favorite product by them. Of course, the only reason I bought it was because it was called "Buffy the Backside Slayer"...but it's awesome beyond that.

Buffy/Angel video (haven't done this in a while)


The creator says "Set after the Angel finale "Not Fade Away" Buffy finds out Angel is dead, and she is haunted by her memories of him, but is he truly dead?"

This takes some imagination but the YouTube videos aren't usually this good so I felt the need to add it. I hope this is how Buffy really felt. Despair, Sorrow, Angry at W&H, etc. I wonder if we'll ever find out?

9 minutes worth of Buffy Bloopers and Out-takes



9 Minutes worth of Buffy Bloopers and Out-takes. The 2 from I Only Have Eyes for You was actually the funniest followed by the saddest. The second one certainly wasn't a blooper, by any means. I felt exhausted for Smidge...crying during the hardest scenes on the show must've been so hard for them.

But of course then they had to go and ruin it by showing Spike & Buffy up against the wall behind the Doublemeat Dumpster. Lovely.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Movie Backstory

From this website:

"Production consisted of a tight 29-day shoot, and before filming, the cast had only one read-through of Joss Whedon's original script. Kuzui took a free-wheeling, improvisational approach with the actors, leaving many creative decisions up to them. For Paul Reubens' death scene, Kuzui's only advice to Reubens was, "figure it out and die." Actor Donald Sutherland publicly expressed his doubts about the production, while actor Paul Reubens (Pee Wee Herman) recently arrested in Florida on charges of public exposure, brought humor to the tension filled set by making fun of his off-set actions. He dazzled the cast and crew with his perpetual improvisations."

Uh,"figure it out and die"?? I'm sure that's exactly what Joss wanted for what went on to be the passion project of his life. Sheesh...no wonder they all look so excited in that wrap party video posted on Monday.

and an old review:


Anthony Head on British Talk Show last week




He goes by Anthony Head now. So, this is from last week. Dan'll enjoy this since he's an honorary Brit. It always amazes me how his accent is really more like Spike's than Giles. Love when Jonathan Ross asks him if he'd go back, he doesn't even hesitate.

"Buffy the Vampire Slayer" Movie wrap party

Oh my, the low-budge and the 90's and the Kristy Swanson and the strange of it all! It's pretty boring-yet-intriguing to watch. The whole time I was thinking, "sheesh Joss is nowhere in sight!" But wait until the end, people, wait until the end.

Still, we can't be mad at it. If it wasn't for that we wouldn't have this. So there. That'll put marzipan in your pie plate, bingo!

Ugh, I went too far again.

ps. click through to YouTube to read the full recap by the videographer:

Buffy Blog Party at "Dispensing Happiness" food blog


Staphanie, who has a food blog called "Dispensing Happiness" does a monthly "Blog Party." Which, from what I gather, is a sort of virtual party and the post details all of the contributors or "party guests" foods, decor, cocktails, etc. that an actual party would have. She just did one with a Buffy theme! Some great ideas here for Buffyfest...

Check out her blog and the Buffy event below. Cute!:

Sugarshock: Joss Whedon’s free on-line comic

Did you guys read this? It's Joss's contribution to this Dark Horse MySpace project. It spans the first 3 issues of the new version of Dark Horse Presents (DHP) Anthology title.

Links to: 
part 1,part 2, and part 3

I liked it a lot!!

Also, review here:


Trachtenberg: Diva or Dawnie?


Can we perhaps give credit where credit is due? I realize there's no small amount of hate for she that is the Key, but girl is a fierce fashionista, no? What I love best, though, is that, underneath it all, she's still a total kiddo. Observe:


Can anything else be said other than "awe"? I mean her feet are completely covered and that face? Come on! What's not to love here? [source]

Samantha "Once More, With Feeling" cuteness

video
When Sam was about 2 years old I bought her the soundtrack to Once More, With Feeling and she truly learned every word to every song. We used to sing them together all the time....Michael too. I wonder if she still remembers them now that she's nearly 8? Have to ask her some time.

Here's a flashback to Sam - Summer of 2005 at 4 1/2 years old. She's wearing a vintage disco dress of mine, pinned up with a brooch for length. Ha!

Happy Birthday To David Boreanaz!

Click on the link for some interesting facts. 

Dollhouse stuff all over the internets

Why isn't Amy Acker in that press pic. Also, why is it so weird and photoshopped?

So they are now saying it will start mid-season. If you're interested, see here:

and here:

Buffy Tarot Cards - New Images

Per Michelle, check out the new cards (High Priestess, Wheel of Fortune, Sun, etc.) Also, here is the deck description:

Lost hundreds of years ago, the Slayer’s tarot is an important artifact from Slayer history that came into existence after a group of women shared a vision of a rogue Slayer who would love a vampire and who would be aided in her fight against evil by a group of mystical allies. The heretical prophecy led to the suppression of the deck by the Watcher’s Council.

Did you know? Boreanaz is afraid of birds

I mean to add this on Tuesday. To commemorate the 100th blog post event, you'll notice that I also updated "Boreanaz's stupidity banner" in a new even-more-incoherent closing banner at the very bottom of the page. Enjoy!

Now would also be a great time to say a very
Happy Birthday to Dan! Yayyy!

Spifrillyria Madness!

Preview of - SPIKE: AFTER THE FALL #3.

Smidge's last scene on All My Children

"Learned a lot in this town....I lost a lot too."

http://youtube.com/watch?v=5DQgWb_sHkM&feature=related

Ha! Ridiculous dialogue and look at those jeans! You see a lot of season 1 buffy-type expressions on her face here.

Seriously, what the hell?






I think you'd have a hard time finding anywhere near as many "sexy" pics of Smidge with the exception of that recent Maxim spread. Guess this one is comfy taking it all off! That one with the blue teddy looks like she's in Spike's Crypt. WTF? Is she trying to be Willow in that one with the books. My eyes!

Ok, I think I'm done with Alyson Hannigan and her exhibitionism. How did I even get on this?
