Singing Actors, we weigh in who should tune in or tone it down. This is a different kind of article that I don't think I've ever seen up on Whedonesque. James Marsters mention.

How many articles are there out there that mention Marsters, Cruise, Mel Gibson, Nick Cage, Martha Stewart and Samuel L. Jackson snakes on a Plane?
A bit out of date as he no longer has the band but does have a great CD out called "Civilized Man", which I listen to only second to OMWF. But still, props to the writer for including our beloved JM and mentioning Giles.
Nicely snarky article. I especially enjoyed the hypothetical critics response to James' hypothetical album.
- Critical response: Everyone hates it. Even God, who issues a curt review: "Worst. Album. Ever."

I wonder if that's a reference to Joss Whedon's Veronica Mars review, "Best.Show.Ever."?
Funny article, but I wonder how the writer could have overlooked James' CD, which I am personally addicted to.
- Critical response: Everyone hates it. Even God, who issues a curt review: "Worst. Album. Ever."

I wonder if that's a reference to Joss Whedon's Veronica Mars review, "Best.Show.Ever."?

Is that really the only previous time you've seen that construction? Both quotes are almost certainly references to "Worst. [blah]. Ever." a catchphrase of Comic Book Guy.
Actually wrote to the site people to remark on the error;)

It is somewhat odd that he has an album with his former band and a solo album and they didn't seem to realize it. Maybe that's somehow a part of a joke that went over our heads?
I want to say Alane posted this article at BAPS, first.

They are closing up the site tonight, so if anyone wants to grab anything out of the archives better run over there NOW. (It was the original Spike Redemptionist site..)

I'll miss you BAPS.
"Maybe that's somehow a part of a joke that went over our heads?"
I'll admit that most of the humor in that article missed the mark with me. I just didn't get a lot of it, but I'm sure that's just me. Not only has James recorded albums, but so has ASH.

"Worst. [blah]. Ever." a catchphrase of Comic Book Guy."
Yes, I do believe Comic Book Guy coined that phrase long ago. Unfortunately, not everything is spawned from the mind of JW. :)

I do dig the ASH/George Sarah disc, also.
Thanks for sharing the link, spikeylover. It was a funny article. I liked the "critical response" for James: " Not realizing Marsters isn't British, they critique his poor attempt at an American accent."

I'm surprised the writer knew about James and his musical aspirations at all, and it was a good thing that he was on the "The Best" list instead of "The Worst," even if the whole thing was tongue-in-cheek.

Sad to say, but expecting the writer to actually do research and be up to date on what the subjects of the article have been doing, musically, is probably expecting too much. I think it was mostly written for laughs.

GRACE! Not everything is spawned from the mind of JW? What - what are you saying? You threaten to crumble my universe! :-)
Grace: "Unfortunately, not everything is spawned from the mind of JW. :)"

Wait, what the what now? (Don't be messing with my head, 'cause I'm back at work today and that's already sufficiently surreal.)

It sounded like you said that Joss is not the source of all good things, but, of course, that isn't possible. Please clarify, with photos, charts & diagrams, if possible.
