Hey everyone, and welcome to the inaugural post of the GYP Street Team Blog, and the "Buffy, Bacon, and Shiny Things, OH MY!!" column. Every post I will bring you some fun, random information that may (or may not) pertain to GYP and the wonderful Jenn Cooksey. For starters, since you probably don't know me, you should check out the dedication and the acknowledgements from TOFitS (The Other Fish in the Sea, abbreviated to save space). And, if you still want to know more, send in questions (I'm sure we've got a way to do that…) and I'll do a viewer mail column sometime in the near future. Maybe. Anyway, on to the random fun!!
So last week, May 20th to be exact, was the 10th anniversary of the final episode of the Best. Show. Ever. (Buffy the Vampire Slayer in case you were unaware, somehow…), and that prompted me to send Jenn a short video on some of the best of Buffy. And, I WAS going to post that video for you to enjoy, but then I stumbled on THIS gem instead…and it HAS to be shared, pure genius! (Also, I don't think Jenn's seen it yet, so bonus points) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RZwM3GvaTRM.
So, in honor of the 10th anniversary of the finale of Buffy, I thought I'd put together some other randomly important dates:
- May 25th - Towel Day (sorry we missed celebrating this…I thought it was next weekend) http://towelday.org
- June 15th - The anniversary of the date Shark Bait was released on Kindle (and somewhat non-coincidentally, it just happens to also be MY BIRTHDAY!!) - http://goo.gl/Ph6hj (in case you SOMEHOW haven't read it yet…)
- August 31st - International Bacon Day - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Bacon_Day
- September 19th - International Talk Like a Pirate Day - http://www.talklikeapirate.com/piratehome.html
- September 24th - the premiere of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. - Joss Whedon's latest masterpiece - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2364582/ - and as an added bonus, in case you haven't seen it yet, here's the Best. Trailer. Ever. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T3T-evQZiQo
I think that's about it for now, definitely enough to keep you entertained for at least 15 minutes. Until next time, bitches. :)
