Vote for Buffy & Firefly in the Tonner Poll!

Take the survey listed on the news page and vote for Buffy and Firefly/Serenity! I am excited that they were even on the ballot as potential franchises for the Tonner Doll Company. Tonner makes awesome collectibles and would do a bang up job on any Whedon swag....

Deathscribe 2009 Accepting Submissions: Horror Audio Drama Fest

Would like to let you know about WildClaw Theatre's Second Annual International Ten Minutes of Terror Radio Play Festival.

Whew. Otherwise known as DEATHSCRIBE 2009.


Last October we brought almost 400 theatre, horror, and old-time radio fans together in Chicago's historic Music Box Theatre on a Monday night for a festival of short, scary radio dramas. Live actors, live foley artists and live musicians -- it was fantastic. And the pieces we produced were drawn from submissions we received from writers and horror enthusiasts all over the world.


We're doing it again. And we'd like y'all to be a part of it. We're looking for short pieces -- ten minutes or so -- written in audio drama format. And we're looking for scary. It could be old-school suspense, it could be gratuitous violence, it could be psychological terror, it could be a rubber monster romp.


We think it's an interesting challenge for a writer: ten pages, dialogue and sound effects only, and scary. We had about forty submissions last year, and every single one had a different take on the challenge. This year, we'd like to see your take.


Here is a page with all the official rules and whatnot. And for inspiration, here is a link to our daily blog where we have podcast recordings of last year's five winning pieces. Think you can beat them? We'd love to read it, perform it live and record it for posterity.


Hope to hear from you soon (before the end of July!).


Cheers and happy nightmares,


The WildClaw Mailing Daemon

Hulu loves Joss Whedon! Two Bloody Thumbs Up!


Okay, I know I am really really late to the Hulu thing. You know it's bad when your mom has used something on the internets before you have. So I decided last night to give it a try after failing yet again to get the netflix instant play to work on my Mac...grumble. Verdict: Hulu was fabulous!

I was also pleased to see that they have a whole channel dedicated to horror! You can watch episodes of long cancelled sci-fi and horror shows like The Invisible Man and the awesome American Gothic! There are clips from upcoming films like 30 Days of Night as well as full on movies like The Birds and Aliens. All without any cost, nothing to download, and limited commercials. You do need speedy internet and sometimes the quality can be a bit gritty. But hey...free goes along way. Best yet, you can watch our beloved Buffy, Angel and Joss Whedon's latest, The Dollhouse!

Drag Me to Hell=Damn Good Fun

I saw an early screening of Sam Raimi's Drag Me to Hell on Tuesday night. T'was freaking awesome. I went with a group of my fellow horror compadres from Wildclaw Theatre and we all had a fabulous time. Bloody thumbs up all around. I will never look at dentures in the same way though. Shudder.

But anyway...what a great horror flick that was scary, gross, fun, and never once resorted to flagrant displays of boobies and demeaning imagery of women. I cannot say enough about the flick and I think it would appeal to Whedon fans. I can only hope that Joss' Cabin in the Woods will be equally swell.

Worst Idea Ever: Buffy sans Whedon...

It's my fault. I recorded a podcast episode about Dollhouse this weekend...which effectively jinxed it.

Inkworks Closing!

Sad news...collectible card makers Inkworks is going out of business. This is a darn shame.

Cinequest has a good deal on some of their stuff. Please check it out and tell them I sent ya!

INKWORKS FAREWELL: We were very unhappy to hear that our favorite card maker, Inkworks, has closed its doors. We’ve known and admired Allan Caplan since before we started CineQuest.com. And we were always treated well by a company that made some of the best card sets ever and one that was a constant cheerleader for the non-sports world. While we are bummed that we won’t be seeing Ghost Whisperer or ongoing season sets for Smallville or Supernatural, we’re celebrating Inkworks’ legacy this week with a 20% off sale. Purchase $100 or more of Inkworks products this week, use coupon code INKWORKS and we’ll deduct 20% from your order (not including shipping).

Cinequest offers Lorne Figure with Orders...

This is super sweet of them...and a nice deal to boot. I love the guys at cinequest. Tell them I sent ya....

We at CineQuest.com - all Angel and Buffy fanatics - are mourning the passing of Andy Hallett, who played the wonderful Host of Caritas, Krevlornswath of the Deathwok Clan, the emerald entertainer, Lorne! Andy passed away Sunday at the too-young age of 33 after battling heart disease for five years. Some of us here had the opportunity to meet Andy at conventions and he was always fun to be around and warm to fans! We'll miss him but are glad we will always have his great creation on DVD to belt out a show tune, crack wise or add heart and soul to a dire situation. We wish those close to Andy well and send our heartfelt condolences. Goodnight, Andy.

In honor of Andy, all orders of $25 or more of in-stock merchandise this week will receive a free "House Always Wins" Lorne action figure so he'll be on all our shelves as a wonderful memory. Once you order, just send us a note at info@cinequest.com asking us to include Lorne in your package.

Electric Tiki: Dark Willow


Swag Alert! Dark Willow Tooned Up is available for pre-order. Sigh. I sooo wish I had the cash for these. They all look fabulous!

Each piece is hand cast in high quality polystone and hand painted to exacting standards. It is packaged in a durable foam interior and a beautiful full color box. Don't miss this chance to add the Dark Willow Statue to your collection!

RIP Andy Hallet! We will miss you!

Such horrible news. We will miss you Andy Hallet!

Buffy Between the Lines: My Willy Episode!

Check out the episode of Buffy Between the Lines Season two that I wrote: A Bartender Always Pours Twice! Weeee, it's film noir and Willy! I think they did a fabulous job producing this one. I was very very pleased.

Now hopefully I can get my butt moving on a podcast. ugh...

Capt. Tightpants Alert: Castle


Last night, Nathan Fillion's new show, Castle, premiered on ABC. I liked it. He is adorable. The show is a bit cutesy at the moment but shows some promise. If you like Bones and the faux flirting of Booth and Brennan....than you will probably like this show. I would love to know what you thought?

Dollhouse DVD already planned..which is good.

I read over on EchoAlert that Dollhouse will be getting a 13 episode dvd of season one. Great news. Here's hoping we get more seasons than just one.

Also, there are several Dollhouse podcasts out there...please let me know which ones you like. I have a couple on my ipod at the moment but have yet to check them out.

I am working on a new podcast to come out before v-day and then I am tentatively planning to release an episode after every new dollhouse episode. Ambitious I know...and I can guarantee that these will be rough...and I will not be doing spoilers. I am staying spoiler free for Dollhouse yall. Living clean.

Yes I am still alive...no I have not recorded a podcast

In the midst of hateful opera-ness and letting all my buffy love languish. My comics are practically dusty...my dvds look at me longingly when i enter the room. Sigh.

But Supernatural is back...and Christian Kane is very yummy on Leverage!

Selling off Ridiculous Amounts of Stuff on Ebay!

Okay...my various collections have reached an embarrassing critical mass. So it's time to purge a bit (mostly so that I can work them back up to an equally embarrassing state in like 2 years). So please check out my ebay auctions filled with everything from shoes to Buffy Figures to Barbies to an Mp3 Player to lots of CCG card games and role playing game stuff. Like I said...silly amounts of randomness!
