The last time we saw the crew of After the End Times, they were a dominate, albeit new, online news site. Uncovering conspiracy, shouting truth at the world and poking dead things with sicks. (Gotta have some fun, right?) Things started going bad. Don’t worry, no spoilers, but in a world where the dead stand up and chow down on the living… saying things went bad means they went very bad indeed.
The year 2014 brought mankind two of its greatest medical breakthroughs, the cures for cancer and the common cold. Unfortunately, when the cures met there was an unexpected interaction, zombification. Kellis-Amberlee changed the nature of life and death, and in the process it change the world.
More than twenty years later civilization has adapted to the darker side of Kellis-Amberlee. One of the changes brought about is a shift away from mainstream media. Bloggers are the trusted source of news in this dangerous new era.
While covering a presidential campaign, bloggers Georgia and Shaun Mason expose a terrifying conspiracy. Following this story could uncover dangerous secrets about the infected, secrets that powerful people would rather keep hidden.
The truth could easily get them killed… or worse.
I’m looking forward to Monday nights in front of the TV. Two of my favorite shows are coming back tonight. Both Heroes and The Big Bang Theory are making their season premiers tonight. Even better, it looks like they might not be on at the same time, at least after tonight. Heroes has a Lost-type checklist show starting at 8pm, the same time that Big Bang Theory is on. As long as the shows don’t change time slots, and the Heroes pre-game show isn’t a regular event, then my Monday night TV schedule is conflict free.
Dragon Con 2008 was awesome as usual. I have a few things to work on before putting them on FanaticSpace for you to enjoy. There will be a few photos, audio from a couple of panels and a few of my thoughts about the con.
I’m also going to try to get a couple of posts from other people that were there. I can’t promise anything, but I’ll do my best begging and hope that it works out.
Wow, this is it. My first blog at FanaticSpace. I’m very excited, cause for the first time I’m able to blog about something I really, really love, the Whedonverse. For any of the uninitiated out there, the Whedonverse is all of the wonderful entertainment created by the incomparable Joss Whedon, which includes tv shows Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel and Firefly, the movie Serenity, based on the Firefly series, and various graphic novels, such as Fray, Buffy Season 8, and Angel After the Fall. He also writes the Astonishing X-Men, and he’s written screenplays for other movies outside of Buffydom, which I may reference from time to time. He was also a writer for Roseanne, but I probably won’t ever bring that up again.
It’s been a busy week for me. I’ve got a lot back-end tweaks done and I’m working on even more. Once I get things done I might release a couple of ‘em as plug-ins. We’ll see how useful they are to everyone here at FanaticSpace first. I got some comment formatting done too. Finally found a way to check and see if the commentator is a crew member here without having to hard code anything. That’s easier on me because that means I can add to the Crew without changing code.
Speaking of adding to the FanaticSpace Crew, there are two new authors. That means more cool stuff to look forward to.
