Fangirl Squeee!

Hey, lookie!

Joss Whedon is doing a "Season 8" Buffy comic.


Am I the only one totally peeing-myself excited over this?!


Yeah, so the last season of Angel wasn't that great, and the ending to that show totally sucked. We can forgive him anything, because he is Joss Fucking Whedon.


Other news? Not much, I'm playing the waiting game. Waiting for news on two subs. Waiting for the hubs to finish reading my book so I can get to editing. Which will probably be like three months from now, if the fact that he's currently wasting valuable reading time by flicking through this month's Previews (it's a comics solicitation magazine) and cataloging his latest comics order instead of reading my stuff.

Finished season 4 of The Shield. Two episodes left on the Nip/Tuck season 4 disks I have. What will I watch? I guess I'll have to, you know, start another book or something.

Although my CP and I are over halfway done with another co-written project, a menage paranormal, which I think is even hotter and better than our first one (which was pretty damn hot and good, and we should be getting our first round of edits for next month.)

I had two ranty posts planned--one about the way we accept shit from female characters in books that we'd never in a million years accept from men; the other about promo and reviews. But I shall do them in the next couple of days, because I'm tired and I am stuffed full of homemade steak pie (mmmmmm!).

I will post tomorrow, though, because I've cheated you out of a decent post today.

I'm at a loss. I don't know anything about any of those shows.

Since I have no comment, I'm gonna use this space to tell you that my blog has changed...

You're blogging again? Yay!! I will update my links asap.

December Quinn said...

All updated! No more bad linky!


And you need to know these shows, Jenn. Go buy Buffy Season One. I'll wait.

Robyn said...

I'd rather he do more on Firefly than Buffy.

(Psst- we pimped your book on SC.)

Bernita said...

Waiting for the shit...

I never could get into any of those shows either, but I love Firefly. Coincidentally I bought Serenity this weekend so I could watch it whenever I want. I also wish Joss would do more of the Firefly series. Judging by the crap that's been on the Sci-Fi channel lately I think they are intentionally trying to self-destruct. -JTC

My kids were teenagers when BTVS hit TV, so I watched them all, and the follow up Angel series. Even my wife loved the series, and she very seldom watched any of the goofy shows the kids and I watched. I still have the episode where Buffy and Spike tore a whole building down as foreplay before launching into their affair. It was probably the hottest scene I’d ever watched on TV. I sell all the many Buffy and Angel comic series books in my comic and used book hobby shop. I just pre-ordered the new series from my supplier. Although I’m not ‘peeing myself’ in anticipation, I am looking forward to seeing the continuation of the series in comic form. :)

Geez, I need to get out more! I don't know anything about those shows either.

December Quinn said...

I just couldn't get into Firefly, Robyn. We have the first season on DVD but didn't watch past the first episode or two. It was good, it just...I don't know. Maybe we should go back and watch again.

Thanks for the plug! Whee! At least the title is getting out there.

December Quinn said...

I will give you the shit, Bernita. I'm debating the rant in my head right now. :-)


Yeah, the Sci-Fi channel really is junk, isn't it JTC? Endless reruns of bad shows and lousy soft-porn like "Femalien".


Bernardl, you own a comic shop? And used books? Where?! One of these days we're going to open a comic shop, it's hubby's dream.

December Quinn said...

Well you should give them a try too, Erik. Nice to see you, I thought you'd abandoned me.

Ann(ie) said...

Buffy, bad.
Angel, good.
Firefly, good.
Serenity, good.

Joss Whedon, tv god.

All hail, Luk-muk, god of monosyllables, I have honored him. Mostly.

Here's my auto repair website:

It has a picture of my auto shop in Oakland, CA. The small storefront on the left as you look at it is the entrance to my little comic and used book shop. I open it whenever I get done for the day in the auto shop. I sell my self-published novels out of there too, but my day job still supports all the hobbie stuff. :)

I WANT MORE DECEMBER QUINN RANTS.

I likes a good ranting...

I don't have anything against Buffy or Angel; they both seem fun whenever I get plunked in front of a screen with random episodes of either, but I really liked Firefly.

December, it took me three tries to get into Firefly, but when I watched the whole thing, I ended up loving it. I still think about the costuming and the portrayal of shipboard life and the socio/political interactions of the characters all the time.

December Quinn said...

Buffy bad, Annie? Fie!

But yes, Joss=God.


That looks so neat, Bernardl! What a satisfying life that must be.



I think the hubs and I plan to give Firefly another go at some point, littlebirdblue. We just haven't gotten around to it yet.

Ann(ie) said...

Yep, Buffy = bad. I watched it purely for David Boreanaz. Mmmm. Man-candy.

He rocks in Bones, so I don't jones.

December Quinn said...

You really didn't like Buffy?

I just...I don't understand...

Second the Mmmm on Boreanaz, though. But I dug Spike too, of course. I much preferred his character...but those moments on Angel when Angel got to do silly things really were all the more fun because he's such a serious character.

Isabella Snow said...

Whats CP??

And why dont I never know what these things stand for!

I never liked Buffy or Angel. I do,however, like that guy in that Bones show or whatever its called. Saw it the other week on Sky.

Shame I can't remember which channel it was on! :(
