Buffy magazine covers

So I may or may not have spent the last month creating over a dozen magazine covers featuring Buffy characters. Anya’s on Forbes. Spike made Rolling Stone.

Check it out. Warning: some (slightly) adult content.

And yes, I know I have a problem. If doing this is wrong, I don’t want to be right.

Buffy vs. Vader

This took me about a dozen hours to make. Not perfect, but I think I’m gradually getting better with Paint.net (a program that is sorta like Photoshop, but free).

The New York Times Recommends Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Just sayin’.

Your Move, Leviticus

I haven’t written about it lately, but Betsy and I are still doing our Great Bible Read, working our way through the Book (or rather, books) one chapter at a time. Right now we’re reading Leviticus, which is a fascinating, enlightening, and surreal experience.

A few days ago we came to Leviticus 18:22.

You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination.

Thoughtful pause, and then Betsy said:

“So I guess that doesn’t rule out girl-on-girl, huh?”

Touché.

Friday Lolz

Just some random stuff I’ve found on the Internet over the years, mostly on Imgur. I don’t have sources for anything, except the last two, which are scenes from Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and Buffy, respectively.

First off, this wonderful bit of news:

John Kasich is in agony over his decision last year to support the eventual Republican nominee and the current reality that Donald Trump is his party’s presumptive standard-bearer.

“You know, it’s painful. It’s painful. You know, people even get divorces, you know? I mean, sometimes, things come out that, look, I’m sorry that this has happened,” the Ohio governor said in an interview aired Thursday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “But we’ll see where it ends up. I’m not making any final decision yet, but at this point, I just can’t do it.

I love my governor more all the time. Disagree with him a lot, but still love ‘im.

On a different subject, here’s a short discussion about the reluctance of soldiers to kill:

The results were consistently the same: only 15 to 20 percent of the American riflemen in combat during World War II would fire at the enemy. … The question is why. … [The answer] is the simple and demonstrable fact that there is within most men an intense resistance to killing their fellow man. A resistance so strong that, in many circumstances, soldiers on the battlefield will die before they can overcome it.

More on this is available from the wonderful Delanceyplace.

Finally, here’s one for the Buffy fans among my readers (all three of you):

Have a measurably superior weekend!

Secret Project Revealed

Remember a month ago when I said I had a secret project that was super exciting for me, but would be a colossal disappointment to everyone else? Well, get ready.

Here’s the deal. I took an episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer – the fifth-season finale, “The Gift” – and rewrote it as a Shakespearean play. The entire episode. It’s a five-act tragedy I call Summers’ Fall. (There’s also a permanent link to the upper right, where it says Buffy Theatre.)

That’s right. I Shakespearized Buffy.

3 excellent questions

Actually, at the bottom of that page, under the text proper, there’s a Q&A section that answers all three of those questions – and many others, including “Why?!”

Enjoy.
