Quirky Buffy facts, the last, and more drivel about the Buffy quiz

Thought I would have as my fifth quirky fact something about Joss' subversion of televisual generic conventions in Hush, The Body, and Once More with Feeling - use of certain types of unusual silence or sound, not talking in Hush, only background noise/sounds in The Body, songs in OMWF.  Anyone got any pertinent info or comments on those particular episodes, all help gratefully received.

My travel details came through today, I'm taping at night, so I get to fly to Melbourne, stay overnight in lovely bayside St Kilda, and then return the next day, all at the expense of the ABC - I really am getting my 8 cents value a day (an ad campaign ran a while ago about how the ABC only cost the taxpayer 8 cents a day - the ABC is a government funded public broadcasting service).   Then 3 weeks later I fly back to Melbourne to meet up with the lovely caraway_ and kassto for our Commonwealth Buffyfest (with icecream apparently).  All in all the next few weeks are going to be All.About.Buffy for me, and I'm surprisingly happy about that.  My show may be dead, but it lives on in other ways.

In other news ... my mother-in-law's car has been pronounced dead, so have been busy with insurance companies, motor registries, etc etc etc - bloody paperwork.  Unfortunately my uni work is lagging behind, and I just don't seem to be able to find the energy to care .... ETA well I'm up to date for the time being, thanks to an early, early start - so it's back to S2 Buffy watching for me.

Well, I think you're very brave, and I hope caraway_ tapes it so we can watch when I'm over. Does she have a specific plan of what we're doing over the weekend?
Unfortunately I don't think the show will air before we meet up, my shame will occur in June sometime I think.

Apart from icecream, and S5 Buffy watching, not sure if anything concrete is planned. We must start thinking about that ... can't believe it's so close!
Your shame? Not at all -- I just can't get over how gutsy you are.

Maybe caraway_ has some ideas -- will probably be worth getting a little fresh air in between Buffy bouts -- a smidgeon of shopping, a little meal out or some such. Have to get my kids a little surprise from somewhere.
caraway_ is probably the one to suggest the best places to go, we will have to all confer. Surprises for the kids would be a must!

Gutsy, stupid, fearless, terrified ... I'm lots of things, but a FREE TRIP to Melbourne, and overnight stay ... that will be worth the agony and the esctasy ...
See thread in Kathy's journal for more Buffyfest negotiation. See below for thank you note from the Girl, who is thrilled with the Sayid icon!
Sounds like fun, and I think that's a very good Buffy fact. The fact that they're done without sound/without background music/Joss Whedon wrote all the songs in OMWF is probably all I know about the episode though!

Or, I think Hush was nominated for an Emmy wasn't it? I'm not too sure on that...hmm.
Hush/Emmy - yes I think it was, I'll have to check it out.

How did the interview go? Meant to wish you luck, but time got away from me.
Thanks, it went ok I suppose, but I don't have high expectations. I'll probably post about it later! :)
Emmy nom facts for Hush:
Joss Whedon received an Emmy nomination for this episode, in the category of Outstanding Writing in a Drama Series, in the 52nd Annual Emmy Awards. (Episode had 27 minutes with no dialogue)
Also nominated for Outstanding Cinematography for a Single-Camera Series
Hope this helps.
Dear Deb, Thank you very much for the icon, I really liked it. I have made it my wallpaper on my computer. I'm glad you are visiting in a bit. Good luck when you are on the Einstein Factor. Mom is going to try to answer all the questions. I will answer all the easy Buffy questions. Simon will enjoy watching you on the tv, and Mom trying to answer all the Buffy questions right. Best wishes, Molly (Supergirl)
Hi back Supergirl,

Glad you liked the icon. Makes me feel all mushy that you liked it so much that you made it your wallpaper. I'm looking forward to seeing you all when I visit, and meeting your Sayid. Thank you for your good wishes for the Einstein Factor - I think I'll need all the help I can get!! See you soon, Deb
