Aside #11: Reminiscing about Buffy while Bento Boxing
Scooby Gang next....
I can't wait for the 7th episode of the 6th season!! Why, you ask? Because it is the only episode in the entire series done as a musical. Called "Once More with Feeling", a demon compels the entire population of Sunnydale to break into song at random moments to express hidden truths. After the singer sings the taboo 'truth', the demon invites him/her to sing it again... "Once More With Feeling"... and the singer, umm, bursts back into song and goes down in flames (i.e., combusts, flames out... should I stop?) and dies (it's an ironic vampire series after all...).
Big secret (shhhh!) is that I know every single line and musical note in the episode. I have it on a separate CD/DVD thanks to a former colleague/friend. More truth... I sing it OUT LOUD in deeply felt off-key harmony with the cast whenever I'm alone and feeling like a pick-me-up. I haven't yet exploded into flames. I might if anyone ever hears me.
