November 15 2007

November Q and A From James Marsters. Subjects this month include urban myths, the end of Angel, forgiveness (or the lack of it) songwriting, stuffing and why Quentin Tarantino may indeed be at least a partial reincarnation of Shakespeare.

Because they wanted a heroic moment for the cast and could only afford cold water


Blimey they weren't kidding about the budget cuts for season 5.
Have you ever spent like a THOUSAND HOURS working on a song all night, finally got to sleep, then wake up the next morning and think it sounds like s**t?

(laughs) Yes, my notebook is full of them!


Just like Spike's poetry notebook!
I guess the point is that redemption doesn’t depend on survival.

So he thinks they all died too. Glad I'm not alone. (I don't want to think it, by the way, but without a deus ex machina or other type miracle, it seems unlikely.)
I still think live or die is sort of beside the point (though I think some of them survived). Its all about the 'not a cliffhanger, nor an ending' ending :) The fight continues!

Stuffing cooked inside the turkey or on the side as dressing?
Both – I love the stuffing. Cornbread with apples and sausage. But you have to know that the stuff inside the bird is way up fatty.


Love it :)

Hee, James watches Myth Busters. Although I have seen them prove something in very informative ways, some others leave the well-informed individual cringing at their "busting" methods.

He's health-conscious and he's a handyman. I get more and more fond of this man with time.

And the "evil notebook of s***" that only appears at the late hours of night is not just for songs, I have more than my share of running with that vile being whenever I think I've tackled a writing bunny. Lots and lots of illegible pages.

Amen to that! I couldn't begin to tell you how many notebooks I have full of things I thought were good in the middle of the night, only to find them terrible the next day. It ALWAYS stings... Writing music's hard.

As for the end of Angel, they must have survived because of the continuation comic. I think JM's response was more subtle than if the characters literally lived or died.
