ANGEL: You're an idiot, Spike.
SPIKE: You think? Huh, because I'm not the one chained to the ceiling with hot pokers in my side.
ANGEL: You hired a vampire. What do you think he is going to do with the rings when he finds it, huh? Hand it over to you?
SPIKE: Good Lord, why didn't I think of...? Oh, half a mo', I did. I hired a guy who doesn't care about the ring, or anything else on God's green earth except taking blokes apart one piece at a time. It's called addiction, Angel. We all have them. I believe yours is named 'Slutty the vampire slayer.' (The music ends and Spike breathes a sigh of relief) Thank you. Speaking of little Buff, I ran into her recently. Your name didn't come up. Although she has been awful busy jumping the bones of the very first lunk-head who came along. Good-looking fellow. Used her shamelessly. She is *cute* when she is hurtin', isn't she?
ANGEL: I think she's cuter when she's kicking your ass.
(Marcus starts the LP over and Spike sighs.)
SPIKE: I think I will go get a bit of fresh air, leave you two kids to it. (Marcus sticks another hot poker through Angel's thigh, who lets out a short scream) Now THAT'S music.

[personal profile] next_to_normal
I have been remiss in telling you about my culinary adventures! (In fairness, "culinary adventures" miiiiight be overstating it a bit.) Still, this is what I've been baking lately.

Breakfast Apple Pie: Egads, this was a really long time ago, because I made it for a Sunday brunch back in the SUMMER. Oh well. It was still good, so I'm going to tell you about it. It's the oatmeal that makes it breakfasty.

Outrageous Peanut Butter Brownies: I actually made these a while ago, and almost didn't bring them in to work because they were soooo good. But in the interest of not weighing a thousand pounds, I decided to share and all my coworkers loved me for a day. Then the next day, they were like, "What'd you bring us?" because they are greedy, ungrateful wretches.

We are having a potluck Thanksgiving lunch in work tomorrow, so this is what I made to bring:

Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits: We all know the only reason to go to Red Lobster is the biscuits, so now you don't have to leave your house! Not hard to make at all, and tastes even better than the restaurant ones.

Buttermilk Cornbread: The jury is still out on this one. I don't know if it's my oven or what, but these needed to bake quite a bit longer than 15 minutes. Which I did not realize until they had cooled and I cut into them and they were still kinda gooey. (I don't understand, I did the toothpick test and it came out clean...) So I put them back in the oven. We'll see how this goes. Also, I made the "jalapeno" variation, and whoooooo that is spicy. Kinda glad I also made the biscuits, since these may not be to everyone's taste.

Trick: (seriously) I like Marmaduke.
Mayor Wilkins: (disgusted) Oh! (shivers) Eww! He's always on the furniture. Unsanitary.
Trick: Nobody can tell Marmaduke what to do. (grins) That's my kinda dog.

FRED: We should've done this a long time ago. I don't know what I was thinking letting these books be all unorganized.
LORNE: Well, one does tend to let the housekeeping slide during an Apocalyptolite. Hey, honey, all this to-ing and fro-ing is making me edgy...er.
FRED: What's that?
LORNE: Oh, relax. It's just a buzz saw. Nothing to get worked up over. It's Gunn and Wes down in the basement. They're dismembering that armor-plated demon, Skip.
FRED: Oh, right. Well, there's been an awful lot of dismembering going on in that basement lately, if you ask me.
LORNE: Well, it's been a busy month.

next_to_normal: Katniss' profile in shadow, with her arrows on her back (Katniss shadow)
[personal profile] next_to_normal
* Some interesting actors being considered to play Jessica Jones and Luke Cage in their respective Netflix series.

* Such a random thing to come from Playboy, but I will take any opportunity to revisit the short-lived series Kings.

* Here's a trailer for the new live-action Cinderella movie from Disney.

* Better Call Saul finally has a premiere date. So does The Americans.

* Adam Pally is leaving The Mindy Project.

* Really interesting account of how Mike Nichols and Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? helped to change the MPAA rating system.

* Cecily Strong is hosting the next White House Correspondents' Dinner. Good for her.

* Here's a clip of Meryl Streep singing "Stay With Me" from Into the Woods.

* There's also a trailer for Pitch Perfect 2.

* Donald Sutherland compared Jennifer Lawrence to Joan of Arc and Jesus. Look, we all love JLaw, but that's a little ridiculous even as hyperbole. (On the other hand, now I kind of want a Joan of Arc movie starring Jennifer Lawrence?)

Cake , Buffy/Angel by [personal profile] seraphcelene.

io9 includes "Every Single Male In Buffy Summers' Life" in their "7 Dudes in Distress Who Needed Saving by Damsels". "Angel. Xander. Giles. Spike. If you hung out with Buffy Summers on any kind of regular basis during Buffy the Vampire Slayer and had a penis, then chances are Buffy saved your ass on multiple occasions...To be fair, everyone around Buffy needed saving pretty much constantly, and that occasionally included Buffy herself. But given that the main female characters were Slayers and witches, the less powered male characters were easy pickings for the bad guys".

More news from the Sunnydale Press.

Storywonk discusses Out of Mind, Out of Sight and Prophecy Girl and the problem of Xander .

TheMindRobbers discusses Buffy vs. Dracula and Real Me .

* Peter Capaldi is confirmed to be coming back for the next season of Doctor Who. Not that anyone really expected he wouldn't, since there's usually much more fanfare when a Doctor leaves and a new one is cast, and also we just did that at the beginning of THIS season. But. You know. In case you were worried. No confirmation on Jenna Coleman, however.

* If you're a fan of The Americans or Masters of Sex, you may be happy to hear that The Millers was canceled, thus freeing up Margo Martindale and Beau Bridges to return to those (much better) shows.

* With Mockingjay coming out soon, Jennifer Lawrence and the rest of the cast are out in full force. JLaw talks about the crazy ways her life has changed since accepting this role and makes plans to fight crime with Stephen Colbert, or possibly commit crimes as part of her downward spiral. Director Francis Lawrence discusses the pressure of being Philip Seymour Hoffman's last film, Sam Claflin talks a lot about his hair, and Natalie Dormer is her usual fierce self as always.

* Marvel has cast Daniel Bruhl to play an unspecified villain in Captain America: Civil War. No idea who he's actually playing, but here's some speculation, which also indicates that the Winter Soldier will still play a major role in the film. You know, in addition to Tony Stark being around, and Cap possibly having a whole new team, and introducing Black Panther... Man, this is going to be one really crowded movie; I'm not sure why they're even bothering to call it "Captain America" at this point.

* This is why it took so long to get Dancing Baby Groot merchandise.

* Rob Marshall and James Lapine talk about adapting Into the Woods for the film. I do not appreciate being told to "chill out." This is only THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF MY CHILDHOOD YOU ARE MESSING WITH HERE. That is, like, barely an exaggeration, you don't even know.

* First promo for Peter Pan live. Apparently, they are making quite a few changes from the original musical, but some of that's about making it less horribly racist, so I think even the purists would find it hard to argue with that one.

* Fantastic discussion of Connie Britton's career and magnificent hair.

* Interesting piece on how certain casting choices provoke outrage, what the threshold is for authenticity, and why some ethnic minorities get lumped together.

* Mandy Patinkin sings and talks really fast and says the Inigo Montoya quote on 60 Minutes.

What I'm Reading:

When That Rough God Goes Riding: Listening to Van Morrison
by Greil Marcus
I'm not sure how this is going to go, but a book about Van Morrison's music and primarily about one of my favourite albums is not to be passed over. If you don't know the album or want to listen to it again, some kind soul has uploaded Astral Weeks here.


What I've Read:


Honeyed Words (Sarah Beauhall #2)
by J.A. Pitts
The second book in a series, but I managed to enjoy it. There's an interesting mix of Norse and Celtic mythology in a world very close to our own in many ways. Sarah is a blacksmith and a fighter of monsters. She is working on a relationship with Katie and trying to keep Katie safe and apart from all the weirdness in her life. This book sort of fell into my lap and while I liked Katie and many of the characters I'm not compelled to find the other books in the series.

It Happens in the Dark (Kathleen Mallory #11)
by Carol O'Connell
This is the first time in the Mallory series that I did not enjoy the book all that much. It felt kind of dead and repetitive and unsatisfying. It wasn't horrible, but it didn't have the usual spark I associate with the Mallory books.

Dropped Names: Famous Men and Women As I Knew Them
by Frank Langella
This is not an autobiography or memoir. You barely get to know the author beyond his opinion of the people he writes about. Most entries are brief which makes this a good book for short reading time opportunities. It does shine when he writes about people he loved or admired greatly. Funny how that works.

Running Dark (Emma Caldridge #2)
by Jamie Freveletti
Interesting characters in an interesting plot. I probably won't read any more books in the series, but it was okay.

An Old Friend of the Family (Dracula Series, #3)
Fred Saberhagen
I picked this one up because I have read a lot of SF by the author, but had no idea he'd written a series of vampire books. I liked the hook, the plot was interesting, but the characters were puffs of wind, they had no substance. I couldn't remember any of the characters names except that of the old family friend when I finished.

If I'd Killed Him When I Met Him... (Elizabeth MacPherson, #8)
by Sharyn McCrumb
I'm not fussy on this series. It's an okay read, but the characters really don't stand out or embed themselves into my brain. Sometimes though all I want from a book is a plot I can follow and characters I don't hate. This fits that bill nicely.

An Improvised Life
by Alan Arkin
Again, not an autobiography or memoir. It's more of a reflection on his craft or art or work or play. I'm not entirely sure even now how he views his work as an actor. Possibly a mix of all four. It was interesting at any rate. If the reader was actually into acting I think it would be very interesting.

What's Next"
As usual, damned if I know.
