So I finished watching Buffy and watched the first episode of Angel. It didn't grab me.

So I started reading Buffy Season 8 instead and not only is Spike alive again but he lives in a spaceship flown by giant cockroaches.

So now I have to watch Angel to find out how the hell that happened.

I'm still watching Buffy, up to 4x05. Is it ever explained how the Bronze, an under-18 venue in a small town in California, consistently books internationally-renowned indie acts?

Passed the PhD, minor corrections (I found out what those are later).

Wow. Some of Buffy is pretty cracktastic. (Currently watching 2x11, "Ted".)

So as has become the tradition, during the relative lull of Easter holidays I blitz a TV series I've never watched before. This year after many years in the pile Buffy the Vampire Slayer is the series of choice. Anything I should know going in?

Yesterday evening on the way home on the train a little elderly woman sat next to me who had no jaw, just row upon circular row of teeth.

About 20 minutes from Cardiff Central she leapt atop me and tried to affix her mouth to my throat to extract nutrients from me. When I wrestled her off she emitted gallons of slimy mucus from her skin as a means of escape.

After things had calmed down and she offered me a towel, we got to chatting and she explained to me that she didn't normally try to drink train passengers' blood, but she'd fallen on tough times and was hungry. I gave her a sandwich and she told me that by profession, she was a mystery writer: she'd written dozens of whodunnits, some even adapted into plays.

I'm not a big mystery reader but some of you might have heard of her -- Agnatha Christie?

An unusually gutsy arrangement for the Monkees, derived from the Kingston Trio arrangement released a decade earlier.

I figured I might as well do an Advent music countdown this year. But I started it on Facebook and forgot to put it here too, so this is a catch-up.

I associate this song with the car trips my parents and I would take to visit the furniture warehouses in Springfield, Massachusetts while they were re-decorating. They would have to bring me along (I was about 6 or 7) and all I could do would be sit around and wait for them to look at sofas. I cannot remember a time in my life when I have ever been more bored.

This song was on the only cassette we had in the car to listen to, The Monkees' Greatest Hits.
