Fun fact: Doctor Who RPG writer Andrew Peregrine are old friends. He used to drive me to our Ninjutsu dojo and we would design RPG systems on the way to pass the time. He went into tabletop professionally and I went into video games professionally.

Small world. :) Image
(*and I are old friends.)
Ironically, he worked on the #buffy roleplaying game creature book.

I am a walking Buffy encyclopaedia. :)

Saving a Cancelled Show! A #TVWriting spew. 1/?
So your favorite show just got cancelled! Can you save it? Maybe. But it's complicated. Fan support has absolutely helped save shows like #StarTrek #Lucifer and #TheExpanse, for example. But it's really really hard. I'll try to explain why. 2/?

#Buffy trivia, although they built a cemetery on the backlot for later episodes, earlier episodes where filmed in Rosedale cemetery. It was bought out by, I kid you not, Angelus funeral home in 1993 and is now callee Angelus-Rosedale.
And yes, those pyramid crypts are actually there.

But WHO is there is rather interesting too.
Tod Browning is buried there.

He directed...
Dracula (1931)
Freaks (1932)
Mark of the Vampire (1935)
Among many more

My #Mythology class has a strong reception angle this semester. The premise is I give the primary sources and they engage. I don't tell them what others have said or what sources to use.

The reward? An amazing discussion about Cream's "Tales of Brave Ulysses"

Stay for #Buffy
First two lines:

Students connected the idea of "leaden winter" to the ages of man and to Demeter's famine and to Thrinacia.

Violence of sun=eating the cattle

Trans: you thought the famine would kill you, and so you ate the cattle
Violence of the sun is also a homonym pun for "son" and the epic tradition in which Odysseus is killed by his and Circe's son Telegonus.
