This site- http://www.meetup.com has come to my attention recently, and maybe I'm behind the times, but I think it's the best idea since sci-fi conventions.

Problems though,

1- There is no X-files meetup in my area

2- The Buffy meetup in my area is in disrepair and seems less than active.

I realized this might just be a common problem, and I imagine there are many other people out there with a longing to meet fellow X-philes and Buffy fanatics, so I'm cross posting this in all relevant communities I'm a part of in hopes that you'll go and checkout this site, and pass it on to all your other friends and make it a popular thing so maybe the St. Paul/ Minneapolis area people might start showing up?

check it out!

I don't know how many people get entertainment weekly, but my eyes was immedeatley drawn to a little snippet about James, and an upcoming appearance on a show I would otherwise never ever watch. I know some people are boycotting the WB, as am I, but might we Marsters fans lift this boycott for just one episode of one show to show our love for the man? Nothing says bring back Spike like high neilsen ratings, right? Send the WB a clear message. WATCH THIS!! please?

okay, this question is slightly off-topic, but I have no idea how to get the answer on my own without watching lots and lots of DVDs. I have recently been watching Angel season four, and in one of the earlier episodes it depicts Holtz's daughter as a vampire child, and when I saw it it occured to me that I don't recall seeing any other child vampires in either series. I'd like to know if this is my memory failing me, and what other episodes if any, have had children depicted as vampires.

1. What's your favourite season? And why?
Four. because I like to watch Riley and Spike fight over stuff. Even if stuff is Buffy. and I like Oz. no bad there. Spike's chip! and the initiative was cool, no matter what everybody says...

fool for love, large amounts of William.

3. What's your favourite episode from season 1?
prophecy girl.

35. If so, who do you write about?
I created a slayer character of my own and write fiction about her.

36. Would you take a college class just about Buffy?
I've been looking for one. I'd love to philosophically tear apart the show with a group of my peers.

37. If you were ever to be a guest on Buffy, would you be a bad guy, good guy, an extra, an ubie?

"oh look, there's the bitch queen of bitchhell....I hope she doesn't try to talk to me."

yes, and I would watch it even if it was a complete piece of trash.

55. If you could choose any character from Buffy to move on to Angel next season... who would you choose?
this is just a cruel question, considering. But if I could migrate a second Buffy char to Angel, it would be Willow.

what's that?

oh lord, three buffy books, Angel and Spike cardboard cut outs, posters, action figures, planner, calendar, necklace, cell phone cover, CD case, soundtracks....

62. Do you think Joss Whedon should make a show about Willow and Tara?
honestly, I think it would be to much to ask. Willow and Tara are wonderful and cut and cuddly, but it's hard to spin them off without things getting boring. Maybe they can be the wacky neighbors in the Spike spinoff...

63. If there was an 8th season, who do you think the big bad could be?
I think it'd be big-badless, for the first time. just lots of little bads along the way.

66. Do you think Joss Whedon should have given Dawn a boyfriend?
nah...not by seventh season, anyway.

67. Do you wish Dawn had died in the season finale of season 5?
not a chance. It would just give Buffy an excuse to start doing drugs or cutting or something like to it in the Buffyverse.

oh you know that.

69. Who was your favourite principal?

70. Do you know what a Razorback is?

I believe her.

73. Do you have Buffy posters in your room?
yep, just one.

74. If so, of which characters?

75. If you could sleep with any Buffy character, who would it be?
.....have you not been listening?

76. Would you have a threesome with Giles and Professor Walsh?
omg, excuse me while I puke...

77. Do vampires have sperm?
hmm....no. which takes away the pressure of the question spit or swallow....

78. Do you think Willow is ever going to finish college?

79. If Eliza Dushku's new show gets picked up, will you watch it?
Tru Calling? ugh.

80. Who's your favorite Buffy writer?
I don't really have the information to make an educated decision. NOT whoever wrote the atrosity at the end of season six.

81. If Buffy Animated is ever made, will you watch it?
yup. only if the actors sign on to do voices, though.

82. Do you read the Buffy comics?
yes, they suck.

83. Do you read Buffy novels?

84. Who do you think Buffy should be with in the end?
No one. I would not subject any man to the trials of Buffy.

85. What do you think about the character Buffy Summers?
She's....she's a good girl. She's just really fucked up and likes to spread it around alot. She has no respect for the men in her life because of the way her father was, she's almost incapable of forgiveness, likes to judge other people's decisions when her own really aren't that great....and she never apologized to Spike for what she did to him all sixth season.

So my original fandom, the one I was involved in before Buffy, is X-files. I recently discovered that I'm not exactly alone in this, and delighted by the idea of conversing with my peers, I made a community for the Carter/Whedon fan, unsung_heros If you happen to like X-files as well, please comes and join up, help us carry conversation and such.

So the reason this site has been being neglected is mostly because of my X-files fanatacism coming back in full force, that, and I started downloading Angel season 5.

So, I will review an episode now, because I like comments, and reviews do seem to generate them. I feel sortof indifferent about "Inca Mummy Girl," though. I do like the interlocking themes, looking at being a vampire slayer as being a sacrifice to a generation, dying so others could live. I became fascinated with the topic around season seven, and immedeatley backtracked to seek out the theme in other episodes. Personally, I think being a vampire slayer is about the most tragic thing that can happen to a girl in the Whedonverse.

I think in these episodes leading up to "Halloween" they seem to play Giles' wussyiness up a whole lot, perhaps in an attempt to make it all the more shocking when you get a glimpse of "The Ripper." He is flinching AWFULLY hard when he and Buffy are sparring. Xander's inappropriate jealousy of the potentially icky forgien exchange student is more anoying than it is endearing, but I did enjoy this bit of Buffy-speak:
"and we enter dateville. Romance, flowers...lips."

The moment when they're figuring out what happened to Rodney feels a little forced, I think it's a matter of bad line delivery.

And Xander falling all over himself, drooling, and carrying on like a big dork when they pickup Ampata is not one bit appealing, I don't know if it's supposed to be, though. Yes, she's curvy and the accent is cute, but contain yourself man.

I would just like to point out that I am one of the few who see that Cordelia is SO out of greasy lead-singer Devon's league. Oh man could she do better. Maybe she was going through a "rebel without a brain" stage.

This scene also marks the historic first appearance of one of the most beloved ex-Sunnydale characters, Oz. Take a moment to reflect on him in his indifferent glory.

The twinkie scene on the bleachers is the only time I find Xander endearing through this whole episode. But watching it does usually cause me to marvel at what a funny looking kid Xander Harris really is. Eyebrows, head shape, long neck, ears that stick out...no wonder he's unsure of himself with girls, he must have recieved quite a few rejections over the years from the more shallow girls he seems to constantly pursue.

yay for white trash Buffy! it's very cute. :) I like her hair all willy nilly and her clothes plain, for some reason.

for some reason, the whole Xander and Ampata at the dance drama is COMPLETELY overshadowed by the above ^ much more touching interaction, which is funny, because there is no interaction there at all. I must admit to great amounts of mushiness and a little bit of squealing over this moment in particular.

oh poor jonathan...always the near victim or last moment hostage.
I do thoroughly enjoy that Cordelia's exchange student Sven does find himself a girl at the dance. Adorable detail. And in the end, aparently love didn't conquer all, but we do learn that Buffy is morally stronger than Ampata was, which I kinda new from the begining of the episode.

new art from the desktop of lil 'ol me.

please comment! tell me what you think!

YES, I have a secret and unhealthy love for the wide world of SLASH! I admit it! And this...this is slash of the best kind.

this is my new journal name, since I got locked out of my own by my old journal. Until I feel inspired to post a new review, which will happen, I promise, I will post art and stuff that tickles my fancy, buffy related, of course. Here's some of my photoshop stuff.

29 July 2004 @ 02:00 am
bravestheart and i turned bocadelinfierno into a closed-membership community so she and i could have joint posting access; she'll mainly be responsible for the reviews & such, and i will be posting things like art periodically. we're really sorry about having to delete the old posts and therefore losing the comments; but we couldn't transform it into a community if we didn't. i am reposting and backdating those reviews.

the site is long overdue for some new episode critiques; danielle is currently in los angeles with one of our mutual friends. haha, she visited james marsters' apartment . . . or rather, his former apartment. his brother lives there now with some other guy. she talked to the other guy. he asked her if she was looking for spike. hahaha! so she didn't meet mr marsters, but she did see sarah michelle gellar the next day while they were at a stoplight! very exciting for her, she phoned me all in a tizzy. we minnesotans get very excited about such things, so little happens in our state :P

i expect she'll be back in about a week or so. hopefully there shall be many updates then.

and here are some useless dolls i made with the elouai candybar dollmaker; i know dru doesn't really look like herself but there was no proper hair that was like hers, and no clothes really - i edited that dress in photoshop from a skirt and a shirt. pah.
