I haven't posted anything in a little while. There's just been too much to get done around here. But I thought I'd take a little break for a few moments to talk about these tees. For anyone who doesn't know, Buffy the Vampire Slayer was a great series. Actually, "great" is not a big enough word to describe it, but nothing else I can think of does it justice either. Just like all the best, it's one of those things that becomes a part of you. I skipped the first couple years, because while I loved the movie for some reason, I had no desire to watch multiple episodes and thought it wouldn't last. I probably just assumed the campiness and bad acting would follow and be a disappointment. Turned out that I was very, very wrong. The characters were endearing and could find humor in the face of the oddest and worst of situations. The emotions often drilled deeper than any standard, non-supernatural drama. Just see the episode "The Body" for proof of that: the most elegantly constructed 44 minutes of what it's like to lose someone close to you. Then Buffy spawned a spin-off, Angel, which matched its wits and heart, and it was the first time I ever took notice of a TV writer/creator, the incredibly talented Joss Whedon; you know, that Avengers guy. It was all brilliantly done. I think it's time for a rewatch of both series.

If you do know what I'm talking about, then you may be happy to see today's shirts. First up is Our Lady of Protection by heymonster, depicting the star of the show. I like it, but what really prompted me to write this was The Gentlemen by cs3ink, the creepy as hell, smiling, voice-stealing, heart-carving enemy from the silent episode "Hush."

These were originally available at TeeFury, a great place to get t-shirts for a low price. But they are now listed at RedBubble.
