They also say that Zack Whedon is writing a Moist comic as well as for Lost creator JJ Abram's new show with Pacey Whitter on Fox called "Fringe". Hmm...the Whedon family taking over Fox, Dr. Horrible (& Moist!) taking over the world. Good times.

and in that article is what I'm assuming is now the official online petition? find it here:
Have a yummy quote:
"Because of its focus on female empowerment, young women are attracted by Wicca, popularized by the TV series Buffy the Vampire Slayer"
I'd call that a pretty radical interpretation of the text. Frankly, if Buffy was causing that many women to cast off "the Church" (which is a huge and disgustingly misogynistic tool of the patriarchy anyway) I'd do a little jig. It's far easier to point fingers at the gay, Wicca girl with the black hair (see picture above) than to look within and realize that the Bible could easily be retitled "Thanks for Fucking it up, Eve, and other reasons women are to blame for everything".
In a well-deserving tribute, Principle Snyder makes the list as one of the worst educators on T.V. and he also makes it onto our blog, for what I predict to be first and last time.
Here's some great quotes from Sunnydale's worst principle:
"Call me Snyder. Just a last name, like... Barbarino." -Band Candy
"There are things I will not tolerate. Students loitering on campus after school. Horrible murders with hearts being removed. And also smoking." - Puppet Show
"People can be coerced, Summers. I'm no stranger to conspiracy. I saw JFK. I'm a truth seeker. I've got a missing gun and two confused kids on my hands; pieces of the puzzle. And I'm gonna look at all the pieces carefully and rationally, and I'm gonna keep looking until I know exactly how this is all your fault." - I Only Have Eyes for You
"Congratulations to the class of 1999. You all proved more or less adequate. This is a time of celebration, so sit still and be quiet." -Grad Day Part 2
"In case you haven't noticed, the police of Sunnydale are deeply stupid. It doesn't matter anyway. Whatever they find, you've proved too much of a liability for this school. These are the moments you wanna savor. You wish time would stop so that you can live them over and over again. You're expelled." -Becoming Part 2
"It's worth nothing, Harris. Whatever comes out of your mouth is a meaningless waste of breath. An airborne toxic event." -What's My Line Part 1 (This might be the one and only times I agree with Snyder)
"That Summers girl, I smell trouble. I smell expulsion and just the faintest aroma of jail." -When She was Bad

Howard is a big Buffy fan. He's just being his regular self and SMG is trying hard to be normal. He just wants a lesbian vampire on the show and for SMG and Michelle Kwan to get naked. I'm going to date this around end of season 2.
Check out the latest on the Buffy Sing-along site:

Sure it's the back of me, but there I am, going to Buffy's house. 1630 Revello Dr. Sunnydale, California. Maybe Buffy can come out to....slay?
Here's a bit of trivia:
Everyone knows that Buffy's address is 1630 Revello Drive, but Giles' address was only revealed recently, when Fox auctioned off his $10,000 check to Buffy from "Life Serial". The address is 3441, Oakhurst Lane, Sunnydale, California. Although you can't see all of Giles' ZIP code on the check, it starts 900, which contradicts the Sunnydale ZIP code is 95037 seen on Buffy's college rejection letter in "As You Were". Mind you, that claims she lives at 1630 Crestview! Giles banks at the City Trust & Savings Bank on the corner of Third and Main, by the way.
If you're interested, check out the floor plans of Buffy's house:

Sarah Michelle Gellar is learning Spanish by watching dubbed repeats of ’Buffy The Vampire Slayer’.
The 31-year-old blonde actress - who played the deadly slayer in the hit US TV show from 1997 to 2003 - claims the unique language practice is working for her.
She is quoted as saying: "That’s actually how I learn some of my Spanish, by watching the ’Buffy’ reruns which are dubbed in Spanish.
"I can understand Spanish really well, but I have trouble communicating. I don’t know how to structure the sentences. So I found that by watching stuff that I knew it’s an easier way to work on the language."
Sarah Michelle jokingly added: "I sound pretty good on the show in Spanish, I have to say!"
Since leaving ’Buffy The Vampire Slayer’, Sarah Michelle has starred in movies including ’The Grudge’, ’Suburban Girl’ and ’Southland Tales’.

Angel's Mansion, or "The abandoned mansion on Crawford street" is actually the Ennis House, designed by the celebrated architect Frank Lloyd Wright. It stands on a hilltop at 2607 Glendower Avenue in Griffith Park. It was under construction when we went in 2006. That's me there in the second pic w my broken arm. Learn more about it here:
Now if I could only find all of the other pics from my other Cali trip- saw Buffy's house, Sunnydale High, the Hyperion, W&H. All the fun.
Remember when I said that every issue of Entertainment Weekly has at least one mention or reference of Buffy. Well, this week's issue is no different. I found this on page 4.
EW.COM EXTRA: PRIME-TIME SEX
Donna Reed would be reeling: Since prim-and-proper no longer rules the tube, we asked PopWatchers to recall TV's steamiest love scenes. They happily obliged.
Kate and Sawyer in the cage. It's the only love scene that made me want to look away because it seemed like such a private moment. —JK
Six Feet Under
The scene with Nate and Brenda in the supply closet in the pilot episode. Very hot and a good foreshadowing of their relationship on the show. —Tracey
Buffy the Vampire Slayer
When Buffy and Angel finally did the deed. It was pretty frisky. Too bad it sucked out his soul and turned him into a murderous fiend. —Nick Ross
Incidentally, I saw Anna Paquin on the street in the city one day on 5th ave (near Bendel's) and it was clear and sunny but she was all wet. Wet hair...everything. Not sure what that was about.

Actually, update! The girl in the wig was apparently confirmed by Joss at ComicCon to not be Smidge. I repeat, the suspicious extra in Dr. Horrible is NOT Sarah Michelle Gellar!
at the comic con panel:
"It was Nicholas Brendon," Whedon joked. "The man is a chameleon."
Sadly, we can now call this a myth. Case closed!

http://www.audigierlv.com/gallery/index.php?album=audigier-080208 (tons of pics at that link). Read on:
"Celebrating her birthday in true Las Vegas fashion at Christian Audigier The Nightclub was actress Charisma Carpenter. The starlet spent the evening dancing with her friends, including fellow actress Julie Benz, as club goers packed the dance floor and patio overlooking the excitement on The Strip. Earlier, Carpenter started her special night with a spectacular dinner just upstairs at Social House, where she and her party enjoyed yellowtail jalapeno, kobe sliders and krafts of sake."
here's the original invite. I'm sure she was paid to "host" this event. Good for her, I say:

According to Entertainment Weekly's recap, we learned these points from the horse's mouth at ComicCon:
• Joyce Summers had Whedon's favorite death on Buffy. Said Whedon: It was "the most time I got to spend with something that close to me."
• a Buffy Comic spoiler that I won't add here, even though some of us already know it.
• Willow was basically outed only because Oz left the show.
• And, no, Whedon was never going make Xander gay.
and Dr. Horrible stuff (which has taken over this blog, as of late):
• NPH randomly decided to do the shoulder shimmy during "My Freeze Ray".
• While filming, Whedon sang as Hammer to Penny and co-writer Maurissa Tancharoen has it on tape. (awesome!)
• The Dr. Horrible soundtrack will be available for download in a couple of weeks. (a week, now)
• Lastly, you too can log onto the very same iphone interface Doc Horrible used in the film at www.thesoftwire.com/horrible_remote.html.
• They're hosting a contest for "Evil League of Evil" video submissions (no longer than three mins). The top 10 will be on the Dr. Horrible DVD.
That last one? One of the talented people on our team is totally doing that last one. Although that Dr. Dreadful" guy that was lobbying right after part 1 came out should really win that honor.
You know, this guy: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hP_6Dlvk0Xs
full EW story here:
Angel will continue in comic form with Angel: Aftermath. Here's a tidbit of info from the writer.
This is part 3 of of the videos on the YouTube. The first 10 seconds show how this is 100 gajillion X 10 better than the Buffy Reunion at Paley Fest. Just telling the truth!
Some interesting things were said in the other parts too. What did it mean that Dr. Horrible was in plain clothes at the end? NPH says that he was gutted and facing harsh reality of what had just taken place. Fillion suggests that Dr. Horrible got what he wanted and Billy lost everything.
Click through to watch all of the parts.

Why in the world did this not see the light of day again?
Man that was lame.
I want all of these! Needed them for Buffyfest! Grrr Argh.:
Dr. Horrible's Tea of Evil
A tea as dark as the Dr.'s heart. This black tea is highlighted with berry blues and a hint of vanilla in honor of the frozen yogurt he shares with his love.
Contains: ceylon sonata, vanilla, berry blues
Capt.Hammer Corporate Tool Tea
An over-the-top hero, like the Captain, needs a patriotic tea. But this black tea is over-the-top too with apple, caramel and cream. Think of it as a gooey apple pie for our hunky, cheesy hero!
Contains: apple, caramel, cream
It, of course, contains blood oranges, but is also rich with chocolate chips (the secret passion of Buffy and Willow).
Contains: chocolate chip, blood orange
Firefly and "Sereniteas":
There's more if you dig. A Spike "William the Bloody" one and a Willow one and even Moist! The Dr. Horrible fan blog did an interview with the creator of the Doc Horrible teas here:
Why did "The Count" beat him? Why is he #10 and, in reference to Tara's previous post, why is Twilight so huge?

We go to eat.
And hour and a half later, we leave and look over to see a loooong line from the register area all the way out the door of barnes and noble. A Harry Potter type line.
Mike says "WTF??" Hmm, oh I get it. It must be because of the last Twilight book. (It's called Breaking Dawn for the record and I don't think it's on sale until midnight, so that line at 10 pm was not a good sign...or a great one if your B&N.)
We then walk around the mall to the other side and pass a mini pg-rated seance. Complete with book readings and a yellow colored lava lamp.
Ohhhhhhhh, it's all just clicking. After I explain a little to Mike about what's going on and he responds "that's why the girl had the teeth!". Took a few hours to piece together that puzzle and it wasn't even me who pulled off the discovery.
