While convention season hasn’t quite ended for the Collective yet (Heroes and Villains Fan Fest starts tomorrow in San Jose!), it’s time to look forward to events that we really really really want to go to. And since we want to go, we hope you do too. If you didn’t get into SDCC and you’re shopping for your 2019 conventions, here are three to consider.
I’m a romantic sap. My home vomits antiques, vinyl collections, and Chopin sheet music. Among bowing bookshelves, you’ll also find the writings of Jane Austen, Percy Bysshe Shelley, and John Keats. But Valentine’s Day used to make me feel ill, especially post break-ups that intensified Single-Awareness Day. To be honest, advertisements continue to irk me when the message suggests that love is, after all, monetary. My attitude has since had a radical transformation however, humbled by life’s Odin-force and arriving at the conclusion that if anything deserves celebration, it’s love.
We at the Collective invite you to celebrate love with us, by sharing your favorite “love scenes” (no, not the kind that show Kit Harington’s ass, although…).
Happy Spooktober, everyone! As has become my tradition over the past few years, I’m going to share some tips and tricks for a quick and easy DIY Halloween costume to make your friends and neighbors jealous!
This year, it’s Buffy, the most kickass of all the kickasses to ever grace our television screens. Now, Buffy had seven seasons and a lot of looks, but I chose to focus on the episode “Bargaining: Part II” also known as “Buffy digs her way out of a grave and still kicks ass.”
There’s a show I don’t blog about nearly as much as I should: Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Over the years, I’ve dragged a few people down the rabbit hole, and the most recent is the Collected Mutineer. She’s been power-watching season three and I’m just so damn proud.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer is, in my humble opinion, the best show to ever grace the silver screen.
For me, Buffy the Vampire Slayer was my childhood in a way that most people my age had Friends or Dawson’s Creek. As the daughter of divorced parents who relocated several times in my childhood, Buffy’s troubles with fitting in at her high school echoed my own. Except, you know, there were more demons and stuff (but I totally had a 6-foot tall dark and handsome brooding over me while I slept).
Choosing only five episodes of this show was possible the most difficult decision I’ve ever made, but I felt like writing about all 145 might be overkill (and please never read Buzzfeed’s article ranking the episodes).
