You know you wanna send me a Spike-ku...

Shout out for Spike-ku's

Its haiku-time Whedon style. Post some haikus in the 5-7-5 style (five syllables, then seven, then five). I'll start:

Skulking by her house,
In hope of seeing her face.
Why must I love her?

That was way lame...I am sure you can do better! My favorite one will get a scooby snack (prize).

Robin, Drusilla, Oz, and the Judge!

Check out DST for news and pics on the upcoming Robin, Drusilla, and Oz action figures!

Assemble the Judge!

With the release of Giles and Faith approaching, DST is excited to bring you an update concerning Sunnydale's hairiest musician, England's craziest vampire and Nikki Wood's only son. Scheduled for a Spring 2007 release, the next assortment of Buffy the Vampire Slayer action figures will also include a challenge to fans -- Assemble the Judge!

Included with each Oz, Drusilla and Principal Wood action figure, fans will be able to assemble the severed pieces of the demonic villain to create their own Judge action figure! Just like the show, the Judge will be divided into pieces and will only rise to terrorize your collection once all the pieces have been reassembled.

With "Doppelgangland" Oz, "Surprise" Drusilla and the limited "School Hard" Drusilla making up the core assortment along with the Previews Exclusive Principal Wood, the remaining variant figures will be announced once details have been finalized. In scale with past figures, the Judge was sculpted by Rudy Garcia and features full articulation.

Look for more details as the Spring 2007 release date approaches!

"Firefly" star Nathan Fillion appears in podcast novel

Fresh from the first-ever launch party for a novel in the popular
online community "Second Life," the 7th Son podcast novel trilogy has
achieved another "first" in podcast history: Actor Nathan Fillion,
star of the TV sci-fi series "Firefly" and film "Serenity," will
appear in the free audionovel 7th Son, Book Two: Deceit on Nov. 14 as
a special guest reader.

Fillion, whose future projects include appearances in this season of
ABC's hit series "LOST" and the lead role in the supernatural thriller
film "White Noise: The Light," will read a segment at the beginning of
the Nov. 14 episode. Called "The Story So Far...", this segment recaps
events of the novel's previous episode.

This is the first time Fillion has appeared in a podcast novel, and
may be the first time the actor has recorded original content for any

While Fillion is best known for his role as Capt. Malcolm Reynolds in
the TV series "Firefly," 7th Son author J.C. Hutchins has admired the
actor's work since he appeared in Steven Spielberg's 1998 film,
"Saving Private Ryan."

"It's an absolute honor to have Nathan on the podcast," Hutchins said.
"Folks best know him as a well-grounded hero in a science-fiction
epic. 7th Son -- a reality-driven sci-fi thriller -- is a good fit
for his cameo. Current listeners of 7th Son will love his 'previously
on' reading ... but this also provides a terrific reason for new
listeners to hop aboard."

Fillion's appearance is the latest in a series of "very special" guest
readers for Book Two: Deceit. Best-selling science fiction, fantasy
and comic book writers have also appeared on the podcast, including:
Robert J. Sawyer ( Mindscan, the Hugo-award winning Neanderthal
Parallax trilogy), Mike Resnick (Santiago, the Starship series), Tracy
R. Hickman (Dragonlance series), Jeph Loeb (writer/co-executive
producer for NBC's "Heroes," Batman: The Long Halloween) and Mark
Waid (Superman: Birthright, Kingdom Come). Patrick Lussier (film
editor for the "Scream" horror trilogy, and film director for "Dracula
2000") also recently read a recap for the novel.

7th Son, a free weekly podcast, is the most popular "podiobook" series
in history. More than 11,000 listeners currently tune in each week to
hear new chapters of the thriller. 7th Son is the #1 most popular
program at the podcast directory, and is listed in
iTunes as one of the Top 25 podcasts in its Literature category. The
first novel in the series -- titled Descent -- was nominated for
numerous awards for excellence in podcast fiction. The novel has also
been featured on such popular blogs as and

7th Son is a free weekly podcast novel. The story chronicles the lives
of seven strangers who have been brought together after the recent
assassination of the U.S. president. These men quickly discover they
all appear to be the same man, with identical childhood memories.
Unwitting participants in a human cloning experiment, these "John
Michael Smiths" have been assembled to catch the man who murdered the
president. Their target? The man they were cloned from, the original
John Michael Smith, code-named John Alpha.

And once again...apologies all around for the random sound quality and mono-ness. I really have no idea what I am doing. I did buy a podcast for dummies book that will hopefully resolve some of these mysteries. Have not had the chance to really read it though. But keep hope alive!
