small brush shouldn't fuck with big timber

Death's Door, the view from the Spanish announcers table: <strong>and you muthafucker's thought I watched it for the tits. </strong>

Tuesday, May 25

and you muthafucker's thought I watched it for the tits.

I found this in the news. Who fuckin knew?
Why would Buffy the Vampire Slayer, a television show created by a self-avowed ''angry atheist,'' attract legions of Christian fans? Or, on a broader scale, why would such a show attract the attention of serious scholars from several rigorous academic disciplines? These answers and many more will unfold this weekend as the largest-ever academic conference devoted to a single television program takes place at the Renaissance Nashville Hotel downtown. A total of 190 academic papers from around the globe will be presented at The Slayage Conference on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. It begins Friday morning. Physicists, philosophers, theologians and other academicians will present their takes on Buffy and its themes of redemption, mortality, evil and what it means to be human. The fact that scholars are coming from as far away as Australia and Europe speaks to the show's appeal and depth of meaning, said David Lavery, a Middle Tennessee State University professor who is organizing the conference. There's never been a conference of this magnitude before, said David Bianculli, a television critic for the New York Daily News, and only a couple of shows — Twin Peaks and The Sopranos — have attracted such academic study.
