wolfguard - I feel less alone. *g*

Christopher Marlowe - Good luck with the grants.

Comma - That sounds like a fun tradition. You might even have fairly decent weather for a cookout.

For myself, I snaked drains today. Fortunately my brother did most of the work of digging up a pipe to clear where ground water was supposed to go in the end of it. I chose the snaking, and we were both fairly successful, although one drain still needs a colonoscopy from a different end.

They have a long standing tradition of having a cookout the first Sunday of spring. The weather is of no concern. It has been going on since sometime in the eighties. So, no matter, I will be cooking out, with several hundred others, tomorrow.

Listening to a Great Course lecture from "The Art of Teaching". It's on
revision and editing. *g* What sort of grant are you seeking?


White Wings,

Too final, I know the feeling. During the original airing of The Man
From UNCLE
there were 23 MFU paperbacks published. There were several
authors, probably the best was David McDaniel. He wrote what would have been
the final book, but due to a misunderstanding during staff changes at ACE
publishing the manuscript was dropped (McDaniel had a contract). Anyway, the
manuscript escaped into fandom. I was able to buy two copies, both photocopies
of The Final Affair. It's very good, but I've yet to finish it - "too
final" (I've had both copies since the ~mid-90's. *g*

wolfguard - I saw that particular piece while double-checking my recollections. It looks fairly canonical up to the end of S7. I quit following the comics, so I don't really know if the wiki followed them faithfully or not. I'm inclined to think it did, otherwise there might have been a storm of protest from the community. *g* D'Hoffryn was apparently dusted off a fair number of times.

But as it happened, for this discussion I didn't need more than the shooting script for Something Blue and the beginning of the episode of Doppelgangland that I'd left on my DVR.

wolfguard - Allies within the intersection of the circles. Convenience. *g*

Anya's unsuccessful attempt to summon D'Hoffryn in Something Blue was part of the comedy, and it
left Willow to persuade D'Hoffryn to send her back all by herself.

But Anya got to D'Hoffryn just fine in Doppelgangland, when he was totally dismissive and cast her
aside.

She did yell at him after that, so perhaps he wasnt all that dreaded, which supports your theory that
he was only middle management.

White Wings,

"Of course" *g*

Not "allies", but "...other folks of different persuasion..." *g*

D'Hoffyn's ~ Give us a chant ~ is from Something Blue which is also
the episode where Anya does the spell to contact D'Hoffyn while the other
scoobies are fighting demons. She goes to her knees, draws a circle around
herself, and tries to do the spell, but messes it up a few times.


ETA

Blessd be, the name of Ta'hoffren. Let this space be now a gateway to the
world of Arash Ma'har, where demons are spawned.

....

Anya: (Still chanting) We come in supplication. We bend as the reed.. in the
flow of the, uh.. No, wait.. we-we come in the flow of the, uh.. Ugh! (Takes
a deep breath) Blessd be, the name of Ta'hoffren..

Happy Birthday Angelcakes aka ripped toast, Embraced, lulu, SAS, and UK slayer!

wolfguard - KBD, of course.

"Give us a chant" was D'Hoffryn's second appearance. The first time he served to emphasize and increase Anya's frustration. As such he was (IMO) quite effective. The second time he was in a comic episode, and so provided some comic relief. But the talisman proved useful in the last season.

He was called the Lord of some-place-or other, so he may have been higher than you give him credit for. But then, he may have just been practicing self-promotion, either to feed his ego, or to bluff other demons in a power play. Hard to say from where we stand.

How CIA case officers presented arguments that were palatable to their "allies" is one thing. Whether they were allies, being used themselves, or using the other parties probably varied according to the person and circumstances.

LOL! Casablanca. Somewhat reminiscent of The Prom. ;-)

DaddyCatALSO - Oh, the vengeance demons were definitely used. Anya pretty much admitted knowing that she was providing pleasure for the lower beings.

Agent Cooper,

Agree on your analysis of the Loan Shark. I also thought D'Hoffyn had some
funny lines, but he came across to me as a stereo-typical ~boss~ character,
i.e. from down-below casting. *g*


DaddyCatALSO,

I do not feel a strong impulse to disagree with you that the vengeance
demons were being "used"; however, I can imagine other explanations. CIA
case officers use to sit down with other folks of different persuasions and
draw two overlapping circles and say, "This circle represents your interests
and this circle represents our interests and where the intersect we share
common interests. We can do business."


Trivia Girl,

Didn't Angel smash it? I recall Doyle finding Angel on the rooftop enjoying
the Sun going down. It would be his last, because once down he smashed the
gem.

Little know fact. The gem works almost as well in parts. After Angel
and Doyle returned downstairs a Salvagi demon gathered up the bits and
pieces and since there has been a thriving market for the bits. There is
some danger, because as bits they do not offer complete protection. A
vampire can risk dust-burn. There's also the problem of certifying a bit is
really from the gem (it's like bits of the "Cross" being sold across
Medieval Europe). Now and then one hears rumors of someone trying to gather
all the existing bits together to form a resurrected gemstone (see, "The
Gemera Falcon"). *g*

D'Hoffryn was much more interesting, had a meaningful part in the story lines he appeared in, and had quite a few funny lines as well.

White Wings,

I believe one or more of the writers pulled the D'Hoffyn from the character
cupboard. Second-tier management kind of demon. Easy to write. A bit of humor
through substitution: ~ Here's my (business card) talisman. If you change your
mind, give me a (call) chant. The only worst such character that comes to mind
is the "Loan Shark" form Tabula Rasa.

Of course D'Hoffryn was male. It made the whole scene where 1100 year old Anya
was pleading with him, teenage girl to a dismissive, uncaring older male who
cast her aside without listening, unbearably infuriating. One could
actually almost sympathize with her. Besides, she was failing math. *g*

Anya said that she wrought chaos (destruction?) to delight the lower beings.
Who would do that better, a man or a woman? "The female of the species is
deadlier than the male." "Hell hath no Fury like a woman scorned." The
Greeks believed it - the Furies themselves were female. Demons aren't all-
knowing, they just think they are. If they believed in the time-worn wisdom,
they'd turn to women for their amusement. We probably shouldn't be
encouraging all men to get in touch with their feminine sides.

DaddyCatALSO,

It depends on the given wish and how it's granted. For instance, "May he
know the pains of being a woman". The resulting experience might make for a
better person. Another possibility is the offending man is actually
transformed into a woman. Some might see a world with one less man and one
more woman as a net positive. *g*

Christopher Marlowe,

Your post references three topics, somewhat interrelated ...

(1) "Space debris"

This phrase is, as I understand it, related to human trash in orbit. It's
stuff that has accumulated from 50 odd years of human space activity.
There's a lot of it and has the potential of damaging satellites and
spacecraft. (See Kessler Syndrome)


(2) Things from outer space that might hit the Earth

One short-hand expression is "Near-Earth Objects". There are existing
projects and organizations aimed at finding, tracking, and monitoring such
objects. Similarly there have been efforts at exploring how the Earth could
be defended from such an object on a collision course. The Hollywood "blow-
it up" is the least effective method since instead of changing the object's
course it would only change it's form, i.e. instead of one big object
heading towards Earth there would be a lot of smaller objects heading
towards Earth.


(3) "Space Force"

Military forces are already in space. Various systems are used for
communications, navigation, remote sensing, and fighting1. These
systems are vital for US earth-based military forces and if there were a war
between the US and a peer competitor they would be attacked. Peer
competitors, i.e. China and Russia, have somewhat similar systems. Attacking
and defending such systems are the sort of tasks a "Space Force" would do.
President Trump is not being silly for discussing it.

OTOH, there are existing forces tasked with these missions. The question is
whether or not a dedicated "Space Force" would do a better job than the
existing forces. Most citizens who want to join this discussion probably hav
some reading-in to do.


1 We're talking about weapon systems that have to proceed through
a series of steps before a target is attacked.

wolfguard - I did remember the Giles/Jenny/poltergeist subplot in IOHEFY, though I missed the change in the way Willow referred to Jenny. A nice subtle touch. I was possibly more fixated on other scenes. ;-) To be sure, I appreciated the effort to give shippers some B/A smoochies in that dark time, even as it guided Buffy to quit lashing out at herself, and move on towards what she was going to have to do, which of course resulted in still-beating hearts being ripped out and trampled. *sniff*

noticed by someone before it hit

White Wings,

Giles immediately focused on Jenny as the poltergeist. Buffy, Willow, and
Xander were less certain and questioned his determination. During this time
Willow was referring to Jenny as Ms Calendar, how a student might be expected
to speak of a teacher. But, after Giles had to fight to pull Willow out of the
supernatural whirlpool, her feelings and attachments gave forth ...

Jenny could never be this mean!


The line of writing leading to this was just well thought out.

Wolfguard. Yeah. There really was something special about that relationship between the show and its fans, and the Bronze was one of the main vehicles for that.

I remember the count downs. And I remember how absolutely *LIVID* the entire Bronze would be when somebody (usually some hapless newbie) posted a spoiler without warning. It was like poking a nest of giant hornets. The wrath of God is probably slightly less blistering... :-)

Agent Cooper,

I recall some bronzers doing count-downs before each Tuesday episode. There
was one bronzer who had a litany he posted just before each episode began. A
bronzer knew when sitting down before the TV that other bronzers were also
sitting down to share the experience. Some would post during the
show1 and immediately after the episode ended the Bronze exploded
with folks posting on the story. :) Grand times.

1 After first season I watched all the episodes on tape later
(for me, if an apocalypse was happening in Sunnydale it must be Wednesday
'morning'. *g* That said, now and then I might do a quick peek and see how
bronzers were acting. I did this during Doublemeat Palace and read a
person posting ~ROFLMAO!!!!~. While I had certainly not seen the show, the
title gave me AHA! and posted, ~Buffy in fastfood uniform?~. Bronzer
replied, ~YES! YES!~. I think my AHA may have also had roots in Snyder's
telling Buffy she my had a future at the hotdog stand and I think he may
have mentioned the uniform.

Trivia Girl: It's in England.


Wolfguard: Yes, timing is the key I guess. It depends on the show, and when you personally start watching it.

Mrs. Cooper and I didn't start watching Game of Thrones until last summer. I'd read the books and wanted to see what the show was about. We got hooked right away and pretty quickly devoured 7 seasons worth of it in a relatively short period of time. But now we are anxiously awaiting season 8 like everyone else. :-)

There's a new Netflix show my daughter and I love, called Dragon Prince. The first season was really good, and we watched that quickly. It's an animated series and the eps are short, like 20-25 minutes or so each, so it doesn't take long to binge watch the whole season.

After season one there was a great deal of fan interest and a big demand for a 2nd season, which came out last month. In this case, the seasons come all at once--IE, season two was released with all of the season's episodes available to watch right away.

This is of course very different from the the days us "old timers" remember, before the days of streaming video on demand, when you had to wait for eps to come on the day they aired...and heaven help you if you didn't have a VCR and couldn't be in front of the tube Tuesday night!!

That really did make it a more valued experience.

Everytime I hear the BtVS theme used to open Once More With Feeling,
I run through a list of fanfic titles/plots that I intended to write.
Procrastination is the sweetest sin. *g*


Agent Cooper,

I erred. It's not watch-on-demand, but the possibility that one can binge
watch a 'new' season. I imagine that's not possible for new season series?
For instance, when I watched a new season of iZombie and had to wait
a week or so for the next new episode.

OTOH, if a person comes to a series or season after it has first aired, then
it can be binge watched. Many people find it difficult to wait to find out
what happens next. They'd watch The Gift and immediately pop-in
Bargaining to find out what happened after Buffy died. I remember all
summer of 2001 being full of debates and discussions and speculations as to
how Buffy would be brought back, even if she'd be brought back. It was a
great summer. *g*

She comes out of the sun in a silk dress running;
Like a watercolor in the rain;
Don't bother asking for explanations;
She'll just tell you that she came

Kiba Rika - Just out of curiosity, did your husband watch the series originally, or did you introduce him to it later on?

Deadguy Tuesday Q: I'm with wolfguard. I think I would
definitely enjoy the show now, but the Bronze shaped the experience so
significantly for me. I really enjoyed watching it for the first six months or
so that I was into it before finding The Bronze, but it was a pretty
casual watch for me until then. My husband and I actually talked about this
recently. I'm in production for a Bronzer-flavored Buffy rewatch podcast, and
he said he thinks that if I hadn't found The Bronze, BtVS wouldn't be a show
we still talked about. We would have enjoyed it at the time and then moved on
to other shows. As it is, he's rewatching it and listening to, I don't know,
maybe 4 or 5 other rewatch podcasts? and I'm still writing BtVS fic and
talking about it and thinking about it all the time. Thanks, The Bronze!

Deadguy Wednesday Question: Since Giles definitively states that Leprechauns don't exist -- no.

Wolfguard: I think you're a half right about the watch on demand thing. Yes, that definitely takes some of the "sweet anticipation" factor away from a show that we got to share back in the day.

Then again, new shows today still have thriving online communities, partly because there is still a wait between eps and seasons that generates the same kind of anticipatory buzz. And these shows have huge interactive online fan bases. Think Sopranos, or Game of Thrones, etc.

Deadguy Memorial Buffy Tuesday Question


If you had passed on watching BTVS 22 years ago, do you think you would
enjoy watching it as much now?


Since I was entranced from the beginning - for me Never Kill a Boy on the
First Date
- and did not discover the Bronze till early third season, I
believe I would have enjoyed watching it as much. Rewatching early
season episodes now evokes all sorts of happy memories.

That said, the experience of the Bronze community set BTVS apart from all
other shows I've watched. I also believe today's watch-on-demand lead many
to missing both the delight of anticipating each week's new show and the
opportunity to debate all the topics BTVS offered.

Happy Birthday Android, BuBBles, Cordy101, Poki, Rakshasa, Serina, SweePer, and Terra!

Are people enjoying DST? I am. I walked out of work and it was so light that I felt as though I was sneaking out early. Since I was leaving with a clear conscience, it was a heady feeling. *g* It was still light by the time I got home, which was really neat, even if the weather was really odd. It was in the 70s, moist and gray, but the clouds were not releasing rain. This morning there was about as thick a fog as I've seen locally, not a pea souper, because I could see to drive, but I didn't have much visibility off the road in places. Moisture hung in the air and dripped on the ground. Perfect for losing the curl from straight hair, and frizzing the straightness out of curly hair. We may (but probably won't) have severe thunderstorms tomorrow morning, and then it's supposed to approach 80. Sorry, Christopher Marlowe

deadguy QOD: I honestly don't know. I'm older now. BtVS and experiencing the community and posting and all the things that I picked up along the way changed me, in ways that other things might not have. I'm sure I would have enjoyed it, but would I have been too crotchety by now to enjoy it in the same way? I'd probably find the lack of cell phones a little jarring it's still recent enough that I'd always have to keep in mind that it's an older show. I hope that the people and the emotions, the humor and joy and sorrow and the shipping would still ring true.

Agent Cooper - We'll never know, but it's quite possible that the frat boys called it Slytherin amongst themselves. It might have broken the fourth wall to refer to it openly.

That is a good question. I don't think I would have enjoyed watching it as much? The fan community was about as great as btvs, so I don't think I could have that same combo now that I did back then.

Would I enjoy BtVS if I first d iscovered it today? Yes, probably, but I wouldn't be obsessed with it. That was due to certain things which happened in my life between ages 41 & 49, which deeply colored my views of certain aspects of it and its spin-off.

DaddyCatALSO,

I close my eyes, only for a moment, and the moment's gone
All my dreams pass before my eyes, a curiosity
Dust in the wind
All they are is dust in the wind
Same old song, just a drop of water in an endless sea
All we do crumbles to the ground though we refuse to see
Dust in the wind
All we are is dust in the wind
Oh, ho, ho
Now, don't hang on, nothing lasts forever but the earth and sky
It slips away
And all your money won't another minute buy
Dust in the wind
All we are is dust in the wind
All we are is dust in the wind
Dust in the wind
Everything is dust in the wind
Everything is dust in the wind
The wind.
"

Christopher Marlowe - That's how it often goes. ;-)

I am trying to recover some information on the 'W.S. Tothill Company of Chicago, IL. I am trying to find out when it closed. I know:

1. Founded 1875 by W.S. Tothill, originally from Berman, England.

2. By 1917, was the official supplier of playground equipment to the Chicago School system.

3. I have seen a few references to them still being around in the middle, to late, 1920s.

Anyone from that area know anything?

Comma

P.S. Years ago, in what had been a Chicago residence, then a city park, that had closed down in the late fifties, a friend of mine, who taught at one tome in the Chicago School system, Oscar Hern, found two sets of park bench ends buried in the dirt. I have those and am making park benches out of them. They were made by W.S. Tothill, Chicago. CC

I didn't tell anybody I liked the show right away, but I really didn't hide it either. I really didn't care too much either way.

I didn't really sing the show's praises or try to get others to watch - but when Tuesday night rolled around I was watching, and if anybody dropped by my bachelor pad at that time, they had to watch too. QUIETLY.

..and little by little, I soon had an apartment full of friends and relatives who would "drop by" on Tuesday nights when Buffy was on. :-) Heh.

wolfguard white wings Well, I just r ead the lyrics of Dust in the Wind (It's just a thing I overheard on jukeboxes back in the day) it's just a bit of reflection on how nothing in the world is permanent, and hs a pleasant and memorable tune, not so much d epressing as just plain physics.
Xander was presumably listening to a tape of old Patsy Cline songs since the song was that go-to c&w reference for people who d on't really know the genre, "I Fall To Pieces." (I wrote a fic where Tara proposed to Willow by singing an old Roy Clark song. in another fic about wishes I quoted from "We believe In Happy Endings & Here In the Real world".) )

LostinAmerica,

I was aware some people would react with bemusement at being told I was a fan
of BTVS, but I've been a contrarian most of my life. I revel in being the
devil's advocate. It's one reason some liberals think I'm conservative and
some conservatives think I'm liberal. *g*


White Wings,

But there the step was. *g* Dust in the Wind is one of the most
depressing songs in music history. I believe was a top hit sometime during the
70's. I can't explain why. Maybe Xander could. As I recall after he got turned
down by Buffy for the prom or spring fling he went home to lay in bed
listening to the music of pain (Country & Western?). *g*

Happy 22nd Birthday Buffy the Vampire Slayer


Happy Birthday Anwyn-na-gig!

Christopher Marlowe - You only have to wait six months and your car clock will once again be correct. Either that or give a ride to your clock-correcting friend. *g*

lostinamerica - My immediate family were the last people I wanted to know what I was watching. My father was particularly good at teasing. But I valued the family safety rule that someone had to know where one was going. So when I was going to my first PBP, I had to spill the beans. You can imagine the reaction to having the rather introspective daughter announce that she was going alone to San Diego to rendezvous with a woman she'd never met, to drive to LA to meet with a whole batch of people she'd never met. There was a lot of shock and mocking and laughing. But I went and survived, and after that only had to listen to teasing.

It was many years before I told anyone where I worked about my watching habits.
