International Buffy MeetUp Day is set for August 1. 179 people worldwide are signed up to attend local meetings of Buffy fans. Somehow a suburban Chili's restaurant just doesn't seem like the right venue. Maybe the Doublemeat Palace instead?

"New" cast photo. Apparently released as an official cast photo for Season 7, there's nothing 'new' about it. That's definitely a Photoshop job.

July 23

The Slayer Lineage. I just feel like explaining this again because people get this confused. For those who are confused, Dawn is not the new slayer and can't be, unless Joss Whedon suddenly gets a lobotomy. More...

July 20

South Park Scooby Gang (jpeg) More...

For those of you who liked the Buffy RPG but prefer your gaming fun in a form that turns you into something resembling a crack addict jonesing for a fix: the Buffy Collectible Card Game. Looks like it balances a solid play mechanic with a healthy sense of humor.

July 19

Snotty diva? Tim Goodman (my favorite tv critic) has a piece in today's SF Chronicle about the newly-announced Emmy nominees. His only complaint is that Buffy wasn't nominated, but he attributes it partially to the fact that SMG is "loathed in Hollywood for being a snotty diva." Ha! More...

Buffy the Journal Slayer. Quote from the site: "This is a listing of journallers who have a tendency to sit at home on Tuesday nights, staring at the TV in rapt concentration." Choose your favorite BtVS or AtS character and get sorted. Funny to see how Dawn, Riley and Gunn get no support. More...
(SPOILER) ATAS - Behind the Scenes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer Sure, they don't nominate Joss for anything, but they do have events in his honor. Fawning hypocrites. Anyway, the Emmy people have posted pix from a recent BtVS event. Minor spoilers at the end of the accompanying article.
Biological Warfare and the "Buffy Paradigm" (PDF file) Did you know you can study bioterror through the prism of BtVS? According to a fellow at DC's Center for Strategic and International Studies, it's a good way to look at the problem. Huh.

Well, at least they look nice. Emmy nominations are out, and looks like Buffy got four different ones, three for Hell's Bells and one for Once More With Feeling. Of course, none of them were any of the big ones, just makeup, hair, and "outstanding music direction." Scroll down a bit to actually get to them.

Angel on a bender. We've seen the man launch himself off a roof, jump into (the wrong) car, dodge a baseball bat and boff the Buffster. We've laughed at him dancing, we've heard him 'sing' and we've cringed at him uttering baby talk. But what on earth is he doing in this picture? More...
