Page To Screen: A Man Called Ove

Everlasting love and romance can seem such a fantasy. Especially within the movies and books showcasing scandalous affairs and love struck tragedies. As much fun it is to imagine such passionate adventures, it takes a story like A Man Called Ove, by Fredik Backman, to simply say love and romance is here you ninnies so shut your slobberin’ yappin’ mouth and get some work done.

Delayed Reaction: Buffy the Vampire Slayer

There is a confession I must make: I barely finished the last season of Buffy The Vampire Slayer (a.k.a BTVS) this month. I can hear the gasps, faints, cries of blasphemy already. When BTVS aired on the WB all those years ago, it was one of the awesome-est shows out there. The problem was, it wasn’t the ONLY awesome-est show. Every fiber of my being was owned by Dawson’s Creek and Roswell. Dawson trumped vampires. Although BTVS held my attention for a good few seasons and that was because of my everlasting TV crush, Seth Green, who played Oz on the show. Indeed, as most of my friends were mooning over David Boreanaz as Angel, my breath hitched for the aloof, spike-haired werewolf rocker. Something must have tweaked in my brain because I was convinced that the show killed him off and I dropped watching BTVS.
