In The Buff

I have managed to accumulate a bunch of Buffy-related pictures and news stories so I think I have to post a Buffy-centric entry. Enjoy!

I don't get how THE BEST TV SHOW EVER gets cancelled and THEN really cool things like a Buffy video game specifically for mobile phones gets released:


I love it! When this game is available I will definitely get my hands on it. I love playing Buffy on Xbox. I'm sure it won't be quite that good but still ... I want it!

I came across this Buffy the Vampire Slayer trading card and I just wanted to post it:


This is Faith right after she accidentally killed Deputy Mayor Allan Finch (played by Jack Plotnick). This was the point where she turned evil. Hmmm ... I wonder what Jack Plotnick is doing these days?

My friend Tony who lives in LA was telling me all about how Tom Lenk (Andrew on Buffy and Angel) is doing his own comedy show:


I cannot even tell you how cool it would be to see Tom Lenk's show! He is hilarious! I love him as Andrew ... I'm hoping that Tony can get me an autograph. Wouldn't that rock?!

Not enough Tom Lenk for you? Click HERE to see a short film called Boy Next Door (1999) featuring Mr. Lenk.

In other Evil Trio news ... Adam Busch (Warren on Buffy) has a band (god, does everyone have a band?!) called Common Rotation:


I absolutely loathe the character of Warren. I would check out Common Rotation's music though ... Here's hopin' they bring their tour to Detroit Rock City.

Marti Noxon (ex-executive producer of Buffy) is bringing us a new show called Point Pleasant:


She talks about the show HERE. I've seen some promos for this show and it looks ... scary .. and not just because Grant Show stars in it. Is the main girl the anti-christ or is she just really goth? We won't know until the show starts airing January 19th on Fox.

The 5th and final season of Angel comes out on DVD next month:


With this release all vestiges of the Buffyverse will be out on DVD. Erik and I are very close to finishing watching the final season of Buffy ... then it will be time to start the Angel series.

And finally ... the best news for last ... there will be a Buffycon this coming June in the Detroit Area:


The MotorCity Buffycon will play host to stars like:

Headliners: Anthony Stewart Head ("Giles"), Nicholas Brendon ("Xander"), with "The Trio" Adam Busch ("Warren"), Tom Lenk ("Andrew") and Danny Strong ("Jonathan")

Bonus Guests: Kali Rocha ("Halfrek"), Jason Carter ("RepoMan" Angel"), Kelly Donovan ("Xander's Double") and Stacey Scowley. Special Appearance by Julie Caitlin Brown


I'm 99.9% sure that I'm going to be there! Woot! I'm officially a geek-nerd-spaz! Holla!

The other Buffy-esque news:
And that is all. Wow, that's a lot of Buffy stuff to talk about. As soon as Erik and I finish watching all of the Buffy episodes I will post my Top 10 Best Episodes list complete with commentary. I bet you can't hardly wait!
