Feeling Much Better Now

Still a bit tired and I sound like Harvey Firestein (sp), but, other than that, I seem to be doing pretty good. And thanks for all the well wishes guys. :)

I would have actually gotten a decent nights sleep last night if not for some animal attempting to burrow it's way into my apartment. First I have birds in the vents and now God knows what trying to get into the walls. I decided it wasn't the best idea to go check at 1:00am fearing Rocky the Rabid Racoon lunging at me. Of course, my mother reassures me by saying it might be a rat. Great, and I hear the plague is making a comeback.

Now, I had quite an exciting discovery last night. I was watching 'Who Are You' on DVD when I saw a Spike moment I had never seen before. While I started watching the show during season 4 I wasn't the obsessed fan I am today so I missed eps during their original run. And we all know how FX likes to snip away at scenes. So I was shocked to disover there was more to Spike and Buffy/Faith's run in at the Bronze. After Faith gets Spike all revved up and walks away, Spike smashes his beer bottle into the wall,pushes a guy out of the way (causing his chip to fire), as he storms out of the Bronze. Very cool moment showing just how much anger Spike still had at his situation and at Buffy.

Speaking of cut scenes...anyone else find it frustrating when listening to the commentary having the writers describe scenes they had to cut because the show was running long and then not including them as extras? I thought DVD's were the venue to allow the writers, directors, etc to show work they couldn't the first time around. I wouldn't even care if they were just the rough cuts of the scenes, I think it would be fascinating to watch.

By the way, I just got my con photos back, and in my Chicago pics I have a really nice pic of you holding your Spike portrait that you had James sign. :) I should scan it or something...

-Sarah, who still doesn't have Season 4, dammit!- (but I did finish my Season 3 dvd's yesterday...)
Geez, I totally forgot about that pic you took. I'm shocked it came out well.

One of these days I'll have to finish downloading, uploading, whatever, my pics from the Con and buy a decent printer to print them out on. I figure I'll be on my way to a second Con by the time I get around to it. :p
Yeah, I wanna scan mine so ppl online can see em, hmmm...when I do I will definitely email u a copy of the one you're in or something. :)
Makes you wonder if Joss is saving up all those unused scenes and compiling them onto another DVD - the better to charge you more, my dear :)

You know, I have some great pics, but I was waiting for the scanner we were supposed to buy that we haven't bought yet. This is incentive.

Glad you're feeling better, you've been missed :)
Yay! You're back in the land of the living. I missed you! ::squeezes Mary in a very enthusiastic bear hug::

I love that part of Who Are You? His utter frustration at Buffy's (Faith, of course) tease is pretty hot. In the words of Joss, "She really turns him on."

I decided it wasn't the best idea to go check at 1:00am fearing Rocky the Rabid Racoon lunging at me. Of course, my mother reassures me by saying it might be a rat. Great, and I hear the plague is making a comeback.

I love you. You make me laugh.

Yes! I'm torn between not wanting to know at all if they're never going to show them and wanting to know every last scrap of minute detail. Heh. Who am I kidding? I'll take every last detail every time.
I'm sorry, this has nothing to do with your entry, but...I noticed your name Asta, and then saw that you liked the Thin Man.

I am a recent fan of the movies...just wanted to say Hey.
Hey, Circuscat, nice to see another Thin Man fan. I loooove the movies, hence my internet name. Have you seen all of them yet? The first is my favorite, but some of the others are quite good too.

I love old movies in general. I could recommend a bunch. I also love TV which you may have guessed from my numerous mentions of Buffy on LJ. ;) I should really start diversifying my topics on here more. I get so single minded sometimes.
Re:
I used to watch Buffy...just for a little while, until I had to take classes on that day, then I was no longer able to watch it. I have seen most of the Thin Man movies. I'm watching a new one tonight, they have been showing all the movies in sequence the past few weeks on PBS.
Hey Asta!

Emma (formerly EGirl7 of the BBB) here - having added you as a friend and hoping you'll do the same for me!

Cheers!



Emma.
Considering 'recent developments' I already think of you as a friend and something of a kindred spirit as well. ;) And, got to love a gal that can make someone look foolish in public...again. :p
Well, it's kinda unusual for me, because usually the only person I'm much chop at making look foolish in public is, well, me. :-P
