Buffy Cast at Comicon ’98 – First Hand Account

05 · 12 · 09

By @loquaciousmuse (cross posted at All Things Fangirl)


So when I was 12, the whole Buffy cast minus SMG came to Comic Con for one of the greatest panels in Comic Con history. Well, greatest according to me. At the time, I wrote a poem about the experience and I thought I’d share it with all you readers.

The back story you need is that I was a kid, and because we knew the right people, my friend Heather and I got to meet the whole cast in the green room, then sit behind them when they were doing their signing. Which in retrospect is really weird. But we thought we were so cool. Our other friend, Becky, was supposed to be there, but couldn’t make it.

Typed using exact phrasing & spelling from original poem. I apparently loved saying LOL and using Zs instead of Ss. Awesome. Read the rest of this entry ?

Star Trek Movie Review

05 · 12 · 09

By @mistyblu

Holy shiitake mushrooms, as ActionFlickChick would say. This movie takes off fast and never lets up! Star Trek begins with action and tension, as a mysterious and powerful ship containing technology and weaponry that has never been seen before, meets George Kirk and his ship the USS Kelvin. What happens next will set events in motion that will alter lives and worlds forever.

If you have the chance I highly recommend that you read IDW’s four part prequel comics Star Trek Countdown before watching this movie. These books will catch you up on all the events leading up to the opening of the film. Read the rest of this entry ?
