Slow Week

Not much to talk about this week. I'm waiting for the answers to some questions to come back from Sean Moeller, head of

I also got a bunch of thumbs up from Matt Pond PA, Yndi Halda, and Foxhole to do some more interviews. I'll have to force myself to just sit down and write out some questions for them this week.

Still waiting for The Decemberists and Peter Tork to get back to me. Peter Tork was the only member of The Monkees I could find a contact for. Apparently he was recently diagnosed with cancer, so here's hoping for a speedy recovery.

Ummm, I guess I've been watching the awesomeness that is Joss Whedon lately (I should try to get in contact with him...). After seeing Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog and rewatching Firefly and Serenity, I started watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer for the first time. I finished Seasons One through Five and just started Season Six (Don't spoil anything!).

Here's a list of things I've come to expect from a season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer:

- Joss Whedon always has an "experimental" episode somewhere in the season (Hush, Reckless, The Body)

- Halfway through the season, a major character is going to leave/die

- If things are starting to finally seem "normal" in the season, something big is going to happen (i.e. someone is going to leave/die)

- Every season starts with funny/cheery episodes but they always gradually get progessively more depressing as the season continues (although Season Six seems to be breaking away from this idea)


  1. Obviously, you weren't far enough along in Season 6 when you wrote this post! The whole "humanity deserves to die" thing was kind of depressing, don't you think? :)

    I think it's really admirable that you're working so hard to get these interviews.


  2. Thanks
    Actually, at the time of posting this, I had just started season six. I finished the entire series a couple days ago. In all honesty, season six was my favorite of all of them. Season seven had such a good build up though, especially seeing Captain Reynolds as the crazy anti-feminist preacher. The last two episodes were such a let down. It's like all the impossibly huge threats were suddenly pun worthy and killable in two minutes while help (Angel) was standing two feet away watching. This was the same guy who took Xander's eye out! Now he's not even a threat!?! And what was up with the Uber-Vamps? At first, even Buffy couldn't hurt them. Then, at the end, even Andrew was killing them one by one. Ridiculous. Finally, I decided I'd just go with it and hope for an ending that ties up all the loose ends. Oh no. Joss just had to decide to kill a character and THAT was the one he picked!?! Why bother? So now they're just gonna move on? WHAT HAPPENS!?! Ugh. What happened Joss?

  3. Also, I wanna follow your blog but it's invite only and I don't have your email. Can you invite me through Blogspot?
