Things I miss

I miss haveing a dog. My dog Pharoh (a dalmation) died a few years ago and I am starting to feel like it is time to seek out another dog. I do have a cat - but it's not the same. Cats are just so alein to me and Stinky (Toby the stinky mouselord of Amsbury) is no exception. A cat is just not a dog.

I'm watching Lost Boys for about the millionth time. It's nice when you find a movie that you can still enjoy 20 years later - I don't own a copy of it. I do own a copy of both Heavy Mettal and Wizards (both awsome if you like animation).

I miss both Buffy and Angel... I watched both from the very begining. And altough I would say I am a fan, I have never partisipated in the fandoms, I don't know why. And I don't own any of the shows on DVD. I DO own a copy of Frey the slayer future comic. I think I may have to chnge the 'i don't own any of the shows' thing, becasue I realy do miss them. I miss a universe of that scope on non cable TV. The networks just arn't willing to give 'speculative' shows the time they need to grow like that.

The merger of WB and UPN has me concerned- upset or what ever you want to all it. Not just becasue shows that I care about will be on the block, but mostly I'm sad about the shows that I'm not gonna get the chance to see down the road bacause of this merger. We have one less place to hope for scifi/fantisy/ horror on TV.

Sorry I'm babling...

Babbling in response
a) Thanks so much for your comments on my two stories!

b) That is a very cool name for a dog.

c) Ahh, Lost Boys and Buffy! I watched Buffy from the get-go as well, and I watched Angel on and off. I watched the first season fanatically, but I think my love for it died just a little when they offed Doyle, and so after that season ended I only watched it sporadically. But Buffy, man, that show was like my life. If someone so much as tried to call me on a Tuesday night they'd be sorry, heh.

d) With you on the merger thing as well. The only show I'm really attached to on either network at the moment is Supernatural, which they'd be total morons not to pick up with how well it's doing, but I was sort of hoping that it's success would kickstart more shows along the same lines, but the merger might put a damper on that.

Re: Babbling in response
a) I didn't read the screen play or the poems

b) His registered name was Windsong Pharoh and was quite well breed- he could have been a show dog but the breeder gave him to us, both his parents were grand champoins.

c) I was pissed about Doyle as well - I was never a big fan of the chericters of Angel or Cordie. But I kept watching 'cause I liked the whole fiftys feel the show had (can spell film n- you know like the malteese falcon?) by the time the show ended I was more upset about it ending then I was about Buffy - but maybe it was the way it eneded - it didn't feel done. Buffy felt done.

d)My husband is worried about Smallville - he bacme a fan of that show when Jensen was on it and hasn't stoped watching it. He was the one to get me to watch Supernatural in the first place (we both liked the move Boggieman) and with the Urban ledgends things he was like "this show is just like something you would write" then he said "the guys are cute" then he said "Impala" (one of the three clasic cars that I love and the only one he and I agree on I could go on and on about the Impala and how if it was my car and they left the wipers on I would have to beat one of the actors blah blah blah) I will say that my chericters get better modle Impalas then the boys get...

more on d) It's sort of a personal loss to me. When I started thinking about writing screen plays I decidded the goal would be WB - I haven't written one yet and soon there will be no more WB. I wil have to shift focus... sigh*

Oh man I'm rambling...

At this rate we'll be going forever...
Oh, quite alright that you didn't...the two stories are what I'm most proud of and put the most into, so it's all good :)

Hehe, I'm not the only one that didn't really like Angel and Cordelia, yay. Their characters just rubbed me the wrong way...I think it's because of how waffle-y they got at some points...their personalities would change drastically to suit the show's needs and that irritated me a bit. Also, I agree with you on Buffy, it was it's "time", so to speak. (Which makes it all the more unnerving that there's been little whisperings about possible Buffy or Angel films, because if they were bad they'd totally sully the memories).

Re: At this rate we'll be going forever...
there needs to be an Angel film, cause it stopped in teh middle of armigeddon... I didn't see Serentity but hear it was good so maybe thye can pull it off.

I alwasy thought Angel was dull (in Buffy) and it took a few years for me to warm up to him on his own show...

have you ever read Fray? it's pritty good and I think you cna get it at Borders.
