I have a few questions for you, dear readers. Actually it's probably just questions for Lauren, Amy, Lisa and the Emilys.

1. What is the plural of Emily? Emilys or Emilies?
2. Spike's soul is completely bound to him correct? Without the happiness clause? He wasn't cursed like Angel, he earned it back so it's his until he chooses otherwise, right? If you follow me on that logic, shouldn't Angel be able to go through some similar trials to lock his soul down? Or is it something only Spike could do since the demon in him wanted the soul?
3. Finally, Angel is very tormented by his past, I think we can all agree on that. Wouldn't his constant fear of going evil keep him from ever achieving perfect happiness again?

I love Joss commentaries. Tony Head was supposedly "frequently without pants" when filming Buffy. And the heavy breathing in the Buffy/Angel sex scene is actually Joss and the sound editor because he was too embarrassed to ask the actors to come in and do it.

Amy Acker has been cast as Nathan Fillion's wife in Drive. My only problem is that Fox has scheduled it on Mondays at 8 - against How I Met Your Mother. Also, I'm going to have to miss the second half of the pilot because it's airing on a Sunday when I have bowling league. Stupid Fox.

My dad just used the expression "great balls of fire." Thought it was important that you all know that.

Also, I completed my Buffy collection yesterday. 16.99 at Costco. Now all I need is Angel Season 3 to complete my Joss television collection. Awesome.

I just found the entire series of ReBoot online. This is seriously, the most exciting thing that's happened in the last 5 minutes or so. This show was pretty much the entire reason I watched Saturday morning cartoons as a kid. I am so incredibly happy right now. I also just had a somewhat in depth debate with Mooney about television. I love today. I wish it were every day.

So, I just saw CDR's post of all his "names" and thought that my answer to the last one was hilarious and everyone should know about it.

7. YOUR ACTION HERO NAME: (first name of the main character in the last film you watched, last food you ate)
Edward Rainbow Chip Icing

It's even funny if you ignore the last thing I ate and go with what I had for dinner:
Edward Tater Tot Casserole

Man, I would be the greatest action hero ever.

Why is it that when I decide to stop watching a television show they always seem to go get an actor I love to guest star and make me tune in? First, I have to watch season 3 of the L Word because of Alan Cumming and season 4 because of Marlee Matlin. Now I absolutely HAVE to watch the third season of Lost because of NATHAN FILLION. I mean, I'm thrilled to see them getting work, but they couldn't guest on Studio 60 or Veronica Mars or Battlestar Galactica? I mean, really. COME ON. (And, by the way, I'm psyched for White Noise 2 with Katee Sackhoff and Nathan Fillion) How awesome would that be? Nathan Fillion and Marlee Matlin on Studio 60! Okay, and now I'm imagining Nathan Fillion attempting to translate sign language and that's really just made my afternoon.

One of the girls in Sports Night Exco (Claire, I think?) said I should start an online journal of my television reviews. I'm starting to think that I complain about television more than I actually REVIEW anything.

That's it. BKV is my master now. His creation of the verb "west wing" to mean "walk fast, talk fast" and this line:
"I'm a mutant but not a bad one like Magneto a good one like Doop and the X-Statix and when I grow up I'm gonna join the X-Men and get married to Wolverine so you better not act prejudiced around me. 'Kay?"
pushed it over the edge. I must read everything he's ever written.

Geekdom behind a cut for your sanityCollapse )

I'm really hoping this turns into another flame war like Joss started on Warren Ellis' site.

I think I woke Brian up laughing.

JOSS IS TAKING OVER RUNAWAYS! I just tried to call Amanda to geek out but she didn't answer her cell phone.

Joss Whedon is my favoritest. Here are some examples of why.

When asked about the cult fanbase of Runaways and it's tendency to narrowly avoid cancellation:
"Wasn't the X-Men cancelled once?” he asked rhetorically. “Few things come out of the gate swinging, because I'm pretty sure that metaphor combines horseracing with baseball, which (polo doesn't count) is a horrible idea -- or wait, jockeys swinging bats at each other while their horses pound turf -- that's an awesome idea! Like the gladiators of old, only smaller!"

When asked about his plans for a specific Runaway:
"Chase has no real superpowers and is occasionally not so bright. This makes him awesome like me. He will get lots of money and cars."

When asked about the death of a Runaway at the hands of creator Brian K. Vaughn:
"I cried a single man-tear at the lunch table in the middle of Comic-Con. I wish I were kidding. I curse Brian K Vulture and everything he stands for. If I did have the chance to write that indelible, brilliantly conceived character, I'd kill her."

I want to BE him.

I LOVE Sean Maher. This exchange is about Firefly, in case you don't know who he is.
Interviewer: So, the cancellation wasn’t solely based on the ad campaign?
Sean Maher: Umm ... What ad campaign? I don’t remember the show being advertised.

And how cool would this be?
Sean Maher: We always joked about taking the show on the road, as a side show act - you know, “let’s get on a bus and drive cross country and re-enact firefly episodes on stage!” It’s a wonderful group of people, it’s not a question, of course we’d all be on board.

I LOVE my theme song playlist when I'm drunk. It's so awesome. Tonight it started off with Indiana Jones and then Buffy and now I'm on the Office. So fucking awesome.

Two things it is incredibly not okay to do:
-Take the Blackbird to go party with the Brotherhood of Mutants
-Kidnap a man's son into the worst of all hell dimensions

Has it ever occurred to anyone else how ridiculous the concept of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is? Somehow I just noticed this. I mean, large talking fighting turtles is not too strange for a children's television show, but the title really just pushes it over the edge. They're not just Super Turtles or something, they're Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I think the Ninja really makes it about a bazillion times better.

My favorite line from the theme song: "Splinter taught them to be ninja teens"

I made a playlist of themes from movies and TV shows. It contains such gems as TMNT, MST3K, and Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman (the full title must always be said/written out). It is making me inexplicably happy during my Buffy/Angel drought. If you know of any really great themes that you think I might be missing, please please please let me know.

Also, I had this really weird dream during my nap. I was hanging out with Amy and Sharon and we were not at their house, I'm not sure where we were. For some reason I had to go back to their house to get alcohol (although I only took one bottle of Mike's) and as I was leaving I ran into this guy that was breaking in and then I stole his weed and drove away really fast. Sometimes I really don't get my subconscious.

Edited to add: I remembered more of the dream. There was a part where I was in the house and I was Spike and I dumped this big box full of rubber lizards and spiders and other creepy crawlies off of this balcony and then a bunch of the got smushed into the carpet and Dziga tried to eat them. Man, I'm really strange.

Okay, so while googling something Sorkin, I came across a Whedonesque link. I decided to check it out. It was about the first Studio 60 promo since Sarah Paulson and Carlos Jacott are on the show and there were bazillions of comments from people about how awesome Sorkin is. A short digression: apparently Warren Ellis said that reading the Studio 60 pilot made him want to cut off Sorkin's hands. In a good way. So, anyway, in the many, many comments I came across "Donna the Vampire Slayer." I never thought ridiculous crossover fanfiction could make me so happy.

I finished season 5/2 today. Joel Grey is awesome, Fred is adorable, and Spike and Lorne just rock. But not as much as Numfar of the Deathwok clan.

I adore Felicity Huffman, but I like Joss Whedon's dance of joy better...

I've come to the realization that I'm much more violent than I used to be. I find myself yelling "punch him" when a character pisses me off. I think it's all the Buffy. And all the other SciFi/Action shows.

Studio 60Collapse )

I'm so excited to see Joss Whedon covered in green paint and dancing stupidly. He's just so fucking cool.

I think my head's a funny shape. Has anyone else ever noticed that?

It's been a long time since I've seen an episode of television that has made me feel like watching anything else immediately after is just plain wrong. Joss Whedon is amazing and everything I've written in my life is complete crap.

Comic-Con is really kind of awesome. Even with the thousands and thousands of people.
My thoughts so farCollapse )

Joss Whedon will be at Comic-Con. Yes. JOSS WHEDON. I woke Amy up this morning to tell her that.

The geekdom will begin tonight.

I decided tonight would be a good night to try doing my hair like Angel. In case you were wondering, it looks just as ridiculous on me as it does on him. Probably more ridiculous since I think his hair is shorter so it doesn't stick up quite as much. Also, his enormous forehead probably makes it seem more proportional.

If you have any other hair styles you think I should experiment with, let me know. It's become a hobby of mine.

Comic-Con starts Wednesday! Starting Tuesday I will be in San Diego with Amy preparing for the convention (or, more likely, watching a lot Firefly and Buffy). Maybe I'll even get to meet Buster, the three-legged dog (is her name still going to be Buster? Should I bring Arrested Development?). Ah, you people in faraway non Comic-Con places will be sorry you missed this.
