A Midsummer Night's Ramble
A Midsummer Night's Ramble
November - December
Hmmm . . . so I bet everyone's
been wondering where I've been, right? Well, since it was Christmas,
I was busy with family stuff and I took a little vacation from website
stuff. But I'm back now with some news. First off, there was
an article at Salon.com
on December 22 that named Buffy as one of the "Twenty
ways the '90s changed television." Click
here to read the portion about Buffy. (Thanks for the info Michael!)
In this week's TV
Guide (Jan. 1-7), there are also a couple of Buffy/Angel references.
There's a nice little article on Charisma Carpenter and in the Cheers and
Jeers section there is a Cheer for "Hush." Click
here to read both articles.
Next up, Nick Brendon
has two new movies coming up in 2000: "Piñata"
and "Psycho Beach Party." Check out the official
site for "Piñata"
and I will put up the link for "Psycho Beach Party" as soon as I get it.
Last of all, The
Buffy Bringers have really been making progress and on December 23
there was an article in USA
Today, which you can read here.
If you haven't yet joined The
Buffy Bringers, please do it now!!!
There is another article
in the Dec. 25-31 issue of TV
Guide having to do with Buffy. This one is an article about Emma
Caulfield (Anya) and it's in the Insider section of the issue. It's
an interesting article, so click here to
Buffy is #5 on TV
Guide's list for the Best TV Shows of 1999. Here's what the article
5. Buffy The Vampire
This cult favorite is
quite possibly the funniest yet most searing series on our list. Though
Buffy’s heroes greet Sunnydale’s supernatural horrors with a wicked, barbed
humor, the show also looks so deeply into the adolescent heart of darkness
that two episodes, including the explosive season finale, were postponed
in the wake of the Columbine tragedy. Buffy spawned the year’s best spin-off
in Angel, and the long-distance romance between coed slayer and relocated-to-L.A.
vampire (David Boreanaz, above, with Alyson Hannigan and Sarah Michelle
Gellar) can still - during crossovers - produce some of TV’s most torrid
The December 24/31 issue
of Entertainment Weekly (The
Best of 1999) issue names Buffy and Angel (together) as the #2 show ("The
Sopranos" is #1). Go here to read what
Ken Tucker had to say about them. In the "A Second Opinion" area,
Bruce Fretts named Buffy as the #7 show, so I typed that up as well.
There's an article in
the December 17, 1999 issue of Entertainment
Weekly (Page 64) about the future of Buffy on the WB. It talks
about the fact that the WB might not be able to afford to renew it's contract
with FOX to hold the airing rights to Buffy. This won't happen for
a while, if it happens at all. I'm just hoping the WB gets the money
because I really don't want to see Buffy moved to FOX (the evil network).
here to read the article.
In the December 3, 1999
issue of Entertainment Weekly
(Page 79), there is an interesting article about "Angel" that also talks
about "Buffy" a lot. The EW
website does not offer the article online, so I've typed it up and
you can click
here to read it.
Okay, I finally
got around to typing up the article on Nick Brendon and his twin Kelly.
You can click here to read it. There
is a really cute picture of them in the magazine, which I am scouring the
web for, and as soon as I find it I will post it with the article and in
In this week's People
magazine, which is the Sexiest Man Alive issue (Richard Gere? I don't
think so!!), there is a section on sexy brothers, and Nick (they call him
Nicky in the magazine) Brendon and his twin brother Kelly Brendon are featured.
Unfortunately, the People
website sucks and there is no online version of the article, but hopefully
I will get around to typing it up tonight after Angel. Enjoy our
At Rollingstone.com right
now you can watch the video for Hepburn's "I Quit" from the Buffy soundtrack
if you have Real Player. The quality isn't the greatest, but it's
still cool, nonetheless. Watch for Buffy in the video (it's just
clips from the show though). Go
to this page to see the video.
As you probably saw on the
main page, there is a campaign to fight Fox's shutdown of our Buffy sites
The Buffy Bringers
and it is really important that everyone takes a part in this fight because
we are only going to need loads of people to get this to work. For
this campaign, we are writing letters describing why we are against Fox's
actions, but this time we are not sending them to Fox, since everything
that goes to Fox is ignored. We are sending letters to various newspapers
and magazines to try to get them to focus on our cause. Even if you
don't think you are a good writer, or you don't want to write you own letter,
there is one on the site that you can use, you just need to sign your name
to it. So please help with this!!
Right now at the CosmoGIRL!
website, there is a feature on Alyson Hannigan, who is on the cover of
the magazine this month. There is a really great gallery of pics
of Aly, though the pics are kind of small, but they are cool, nonetheless.
Here's a sample of one of the pics.
