Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 8 Comics
My Buffy the Vampire Slayer/ Joss Whedon collection :)
I’m lime green jello. Can I have it?
Mine’s just getting started.
Someone needs to make a parallel gif set with Angel’s Spin the Bottle and Buffy’s Tabula Rasa/Band Candy. All of these episodes are great fun all around, and I absolutely love the similarities between them!

Warren: It was an accident, you know.
Willow: Oh. You mean, instead of killing my best friend, you killed my girlfriend.
Warren: It wasn’t personal, that’s all.
Wilow: Well this is.
1st April 1923 -Harold Lloyd’s iconic Safety Last! is released
Harold Lloyd’s Safety Last! is a silent comedy that was released ninety years ago today. The film follows Harold, a poor, yet eager go-getter, who is intent on earning enough money so he can settle down with the girl he loves. A series of incidents occur which culminate in Lloyd being forced to scale the side of a building. This climax was filmed using both ingenius trick photography and impressive stunt work by both Lloyd and Bill Strother. This is made all the more impressive when you consider the fact that Lloyd was missing his right thumb and forefinger which he lost in 1919 after a prop bomb he was holding exploded. The hair raising finale is so gripping and seemed so real that it reportedly had people fainting in the theatre as Harold climbs higher and higher. The film also includes one of the most iconic images to come out of the silent era, that being Harold Lloyd dangling from the hands of a clock with a busy city street below. You’ve probably seen this image or at least a tribute to it in Back to the Future (1985) or Hugo (2011).
The film was incredibly popular at the time of it’s release and cemented Lloyd’s place as one of the most popular stars of the silent era. Safety Last! is now considered one of the finest examples of silent comedy and is no doubt a seminal piece of cinema.
As of June 2013, Safety Last! will finally be available on Bluray from The Criterion Collection.
