Off to the Big Easy!
I'm off to New Orleans tomorrow for the regional PCA/ACA conference, where I'm due to present on Cowboy Bebop's potential influences on Whedon's Firefly. It's only a short presentation, so I (as usual) wind up scratching the surface and asking more questions that perhaps actually get answered. Here's hoping it goes well - tune in later this week for an update following Friday's presentation.
Of course, it's not just about me - this is a large conference and there's also a "conference within a conference" centering on some little show called Lost or Misplaced or something like that. There will be much to see and hear and speculate upon, as there always is at a conference with such wide-ranging topics. (FryDaddy is scheduled to present on Saturday about Samuel Colt in real life, myth and on Supernatural, which promises to be a show-stopper.)
I plan to post often - maybe even once a day, but that may be a goal too lofty. Check in and see, won't you?
Also, over at the continuing Rewatch, that's me who's in the hot seat this week. I cover three "Willowcentric" episodes from Season Six and my interpretation is met with some resistance amongst part of the fan base. However, I stand by my assessment - Willow's an addict and she hits some form of bottom by the end of this week's trio of episodes. Read the post and the comments and see what you think!
