“Once I did an Anne Rice novel, called VITTORIO, THE VAMPIRE. I had to do a scene where a teenage vampire was having sex for the first time, or was being bitten, maybe a combination of both, and it was so intense that they had to stop because they thought I was going to hyperventilate. I was doing lots of breathy vampire acting, and I was starting to fall off the chair. That was my most perilous moment in audiobooks.”—Alan Cumming on Narration [x] (via yunafire)
“What I love about it is it’s called Buffy the Vampire Slayer, which begs you not to take it seriously. The name of the show was like this guard door that says, ‘Only the cool people shall pass. Only those who appreciate irony will get past the title of this show.’ If you think literally you will not tune in to something called Buffy the Vampire Slayer. It’s a defiant, in-your-face title. We are a genre show with a title designed to put people off.”—James Marsters (x)
Let’s be real, in a time before the internet people didn’t have more adventures and make more meaningful connections. They watched TV and listened to CDs. Before that they listened to records and read magazines. Before that they listened to the radio and read bad dime novels. Before that they embroidered or some shit.
People have been staying inside and ignoring other people for as long as there have been buildings.
