Juramento Mantarraya (La Castanya / K Records). Review by Bob Pomeroy
Bruce Phillips narrowly skirts induction into Joss Whedon‘s awesome cult, and he has this book to blame.
Ben Varkentine‘s got a little list (“He’s gota little list…”).
After reviewing two Buffy-related books for Ink 19 already, Ben Varkentine finds this one a lot better written than the others. But a canker still arises on the rose.
Few who have seen it dispute that for most of its run Buffy the Vampire Slayer was at the very least an entertaining, well-made series. A diverse group of scholars thinks it was more. Ben Varkentine walks the halls of Sunnydale High again to see if they’re right.
Julio Diaz didn’t review as many albums in 2002 as he should have, but that doesn’t mean he wasn’t listening. Here are his picks for the year’s best.
Scoring Buffy, hangin’ with ‘Nsync, picking up interstellar babes and new wave girls… all in a day’s work for the men of Nerf Herder. Julio Diaz attempts to run an extensive interview with singer Parry Grip in less than 12 parsecs.
Ben Varkentine takes a peek inside The Prime Time Closet, author Stephen Tropiano’s look at the depiction of gays and lesbians on television.
As They Might Be Giants sang, "you never know what you’ll find when you open up your letterbox." Here’s a sampling of what’s come in to the Ink 19 virtual letterboxÃ–
The Death of Tara and "The Dead/Evil Lesbian Cliché" (Ink 19, July 2002)
Music For Elevators (Beautiful Is As Beautiful Does). Review by Julio Diaz.
One of the best series currently on television finally gets the full-season DVD treatment. Julio Diaz sinks his teeth into season one of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
Nerds of the world, unite! Nerf Herder are here to take Nerd Core to new heights! Julio Diaz corresponds with frontman Parry Grip about Star Wars, punk rock, Jonathan Richman, and all thigs nerdly.
If you or your staff sees fit, this can be posted as the ramblings of a
fucked-up son-of-a-bitch……if you correct the spelling errors, of course
(it is time for Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and her boyfriend’s new show,
Angel……no way I’m gonna check for stupid-assed grammar and shit while
that piece of work is on the air).
