Slayer Soundtrack Sunday ~ Bellylove

 photo bellylove-buffy.jpg.png

The song "Back to Freedom" is played on the Bronze stage by the group Bellylove in the Season Three opening episode called "Anne." While the song plays in the background, Xander says "Welcome to depressing night at the Bronze." Reason for his depression? Buffy has been forced to leave town after being wrongly accused of killing the alternate slayer Kendra, who was actually murdered by the vampire Drusilla at the end of Season Two. Left behind in Sunnydale, the Scooby Gang consisting of Xander, Oz, Willow and Cordelia are learning to kill vampires on their own, and they aren't too happy about it.

The song is somewhat prophetic because while Buffy is "free" in the sense of being on her own for the first time, she has discovered the tragic world of poverty-stricken runaways living on the edge of society. After she frees a group of homeless people being held forced to work as slaves by demons in the bowels of Los Angeles, she finds her way home again after having her name cleared, which means back to responsibility and school, but also the freedom of being a kid at home with Mom again.

New Vampire Documentary "A Place Among the Undead"

The force behind the documentary "A Place Among the Undead" is none other than Juliet Landau (Drusilla from BTVS), with funding through IndieGoGo ~ send in the money to get this made!!!

Here's Juliet via Nerdist

I had the opportunity to play Drusilla on Joss Whedon’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel and now, I am making A Place Among the Undead, which is fast becoming the most definitive vampire documentary ever made. The film is a tapestry with interlinking narrative films inspired by the conversations.
I had the extreme pleasure of interviewing Anne (Rice) in Los Angeles and filming with her at the Vampire Ball in New Orleans last year. As I have been wending my way through the project, all roads continually lead to Anne. Each interviewee has talked about the influence of her writing and how her books inspired them to create. Without her, there is no modern interpretation of the undead. She has become as mythic as her beloved Lestat.
If Bram Stoker is the father of the genre then she is the mother, or should I say the queen… Yes, she is “The Queen of the Dammed.” We are all her children and grateful to be so.

Enjoyable discussion video concerning author Anne Rice, including comments by Joss Whedon, Tim Burton, and Charlaine Harris (author of the True Blood novels).

Buffy Turns 18 ~ Tribute in The Atlantic

 photo tumblr_lhgweyKR121qb8jj3o1_500.gif

The Atlantic has a great tribute to Buffy the Vampire Slayer as the show turns 18 years old.

From The Atlantic
Buffy is ... unique in that, as much as Sunnydale is a Hellmouth, high school is hell. The monsters in the first season are literal manifestations of the demons that plague teenagers—a controlling mother who's so intent on living through her daughter that she switches bodies with her, a pack of teenage boys who become uncontrollably feral, an Internet boyfriend who pretends to be a normal kid but whose real identity is much more complex (in this case, he's a demon called Moloch who got accidentally uploaded onto the Internet). In the episode “Out of Mind, Out of Sight,” one of Buffy’s classmates is ignored to the extent that she physically becomes invisible. In transmogrifying common teenage issues into actual, tangible villains, Buffy makes them seem important, and worth agonizing over. It also makes them seem conquerable.

. . . Television has had lots of complex, admirable teenage heroines since Buffy, but it's hard to think of one so consistently empowered to take control of the circumstances around her, whether in the middle of a graveyard, surrounded by vampires, or in her bedroom, grounded. Buffy’s super-strength is a physical attribute endowed by the forces of destiny, but it's also a state of confidence and competence that carries her through the varying traumas of having the fate of the world always on her shoulders.

"Hide Behind the Chainsaws!" ~ Hilarious Geico Halloween Commercial

 photo tumblr_ndpxqz77Vu1tc8r6ho4_250.gif

There's a new commercial out from Geico that pokes fun at horror movie stupidity - you know, when someone is trying to run away from a knife-wielding psychopath but forgets they have a car in the driveway, or that they should lock the door behind them.

So if you enjoy Sarah Michelle Geller's "I Know What You Did Last Summer" or Joss Whedon's "The Cabin in the Woods," you will love this video:
