A friend used to rearrange her work schedule so that she would be able to watch each new episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. At the time I thought this was silly and perhaps a case of not prioritizing well, but now I realize that I should have trusted her judgment, as she was the one who turned me on to ‘Rent. Except for a few early episodes of Buffy, my knowledge of the show is minimal. I had seen the film and rejected the series because there was a change in lead actor. After Wednesday, I have been obsessing over making up for lost time.
Last week, locals gathered for a showing of “Once More, With Feeling” and Dr. Horrible’s Singalong Blog at the Pumphouse Gallery in Bushnell Park. A screen was set up inside the building where the public was able to enjoy both episodes at no cost. Even though it was the middle of October and I kept my jacket on the entire time, it was not unbearably cold. To be honest, I have been colder in the Real Art Ways cinema during winter, and I had to pay to see that film.
Just one more thing to do in a place where there is allegedly nothing to do.
