(no subject)

Slowly coming out of a fog of tonsillitis, antibiotics and codeine.  Just realised that it is only two and half weeks before I'm back to being a student, so checked the subject outline to see this; 'in 2004, this subject will be delivered as an online seminar in American Media and Cultural Studies', so that should prove interesting (well I hope so, and I don't even have to leave home).

I guess the JM/Spike fans are getting excited. Cue sarcasm -HE. WILL. BE. HERE. IN. OZ. THIS. WEEKEND.  Umm yeah ... it will be interesting at least to see how much media interest he engenders.  Will be a guest on one chat show next week, that I know of - he's listed as "JAMES MARSTERS
The blonde-haired, pointy-toothed Spike from Angel and Buffy sweeps into town to talk to Rove about Hollywood, stardom, and stalking the streets as a soulless, blood-drinking member of the living dead. Should be fun!" - although not so blonde-haired anymore. 

Still learning to control motherly panic attacks every time Jake drives off in the car by himself, although at the moment I'm finding it hard to maintain the energy to even have a panic attack.  Gotta love winter colds and flu.  Back to S1 Buffy.

  • Current Mood: blah blah
Tonsillitis -- bad!

Icon -- do I hear a Hunters and Collectors song? Do I? Do I?
Tonsillitis - very bad.

Icon - yes you do. First saw Hunters back in '78/79 my first go round at uni. Still remain one of my favourite bands, and love "Throw your arms around me", got it on a live version CD - actually their last performance before breaking up.

I have also had a strong word to myself about my JM enmity which is pissing me off - decided not to let a few LJ reports change my perception of someone that I had a great deal of respect for as an artist - let the man have feet of clay - “They discovered to their vast discomfiture that their idol had feet of clay, after placing him upon a pedestal” (James Joyce).
I saw Hunters and Collectors a couple of times in the early '80s when they toured here. Loved ``Talking to a Stranger'' and had their first album or EP or whatever.

Fair enough about JM. I just want to keep him at an emotional distance in my head, mostly for my own benefit, I think.

Does this mean you'll be going to see him and squealing and getting an autograph!!? ; )
"Talking to a Stranger" - first contact with the Hunters - still one of my all time favourites.

No squealy fangirl here (my poor old arthritic knees wouldn't handle it, and I don't like lollipops all that much), will maintain my emotional distance, separating man from character, and hopefully no longer letting it affect my enjoyment of the character portrayed. Season 2 beckons, and I don't want to tarnish the pleasure that awaits. Maybe I could be fangirlish and ask you to get an autograph from Jane Espenson (only joking), now that's someone I would like to see (and hear)!
