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)
