My Latest Obsessions
Updated: May 23
I hope to share one a month what I am currently really into. What is keeping me up late at night? Right now, it is Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
Who doesn't enjoy a female superhero kicking butt? My buddy will tell you that I am watching something familiar, since my spoons are used up. I'll change it to my pen is almost out of ink. This does make a lot of sense. I was very busy this last week. My brain needed a break.
Have you heard of the "Spoon Theory"? To sum it up, it's used for when you’re out of energy. You run out of spoons. In my case, I am out of ink. I'm obsessed with Buffy since I've already seen the TV show and the movie multiple times. I think I've read season 8 comic a couple of times. My brain doesn’t have to think.
I am on Season 2 right after Angel...if you haven't seen it stop reading, this will be a spoiler, but the show has aired over twenty years ago...Angel loses his soul. I forgot how emotional that was. How he acted toward Buffy and how she felt after. And then I remembered she was only 17, and a bit of the ick factor came in. She wasn't an adult. He was. This would not fly nowadays. Why does it matter now? This is a TV show! Why am I so invested in this? I have seen it, and I know what happens.
Fast forward to what will happen. On the TV show, Angel, Angel gets his ex pregnant. The same thing happened on Roswell. They aired at the same time. Angel from October 5, 1999–May 19, 2004 and Roswell from October 6, 1999–May 14, 2002. I have been obsessed with Roswell. Will I be obsessed with Angel? Probably.
I will end this without discussing the allegations made. You can look that up. I'm a fan of the show and the actors who did it. I have a rule if one person says something about my work and wants me to change it, and I don’t want to, I don't listen, but when multiple people tell me or people I trust, I listen. I change what is wrong.
What are you obsessed with?
Until next time,
