I know our stompies have lives and jobs, but does anyone know what is going on or what happened?
downforeveryoneorjustme.com says it's just me, but it lies, right?

Buffistas.org and istrata.com are unreachable right now. The number I have for support says to send an email, so I have no idea what effect that could possibly have, but rest assured that I'm fretting at least.
And, really, I should have set up buffistas.info by now. I will get back on that.
eta: I have set up a wordpress blog
for now, and have paged an Istrata engineer.

I can't post there!
Why does the b.org hate me?
|Monday, February 16th, 2009|
Is the b.org down? I see nothing on the .info page. Maybe it's just me.
(eta: .info now updated...looks like the hosting company itself is down.)
(eata: Yay, we're back!)

Happy Birthday JZ!
I don't know if you're on LJ - but so far I can't get into b.org.

I got in, but I can't get past message center. The page just keeps loading. Anybody? Hello?

Did the site just vanish for anyone else? buffistas.info doesn't have anything new yet.
[nevermind, seems to be back now]

Oh, aargh. Oh, woe.
It seems that the board is down this morning, or is it just me?

Online course on the Whedonverses
I wanted to let this community know that I will be teaching an online course at the Massachusetts College of Art on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. (Please pardon the self-promotion and any cross-posting, but I thought it was an appropriate announcement for this community.) I’d like to encourage interested members to sign up for some serious fun.
My background: I’ve taught several seminars on the Buffyverse at the Massachusetts College of Art and Emerson College over the past three years. I’ve published two articles on the series at Slayage (which you can find at http://slayageonline.com/
in issues 19 and 22.) I’ve presented articles at a several conferences, including the latest biannual one on the Whedonverses, Charming and Crafty at Harvard University, and for the Popular Culture and American Culture Associations.
What you can expect: The course will give students the rare opportunity study the evolution of a single, long-running series in its entirety. This course will offer you the depth of understanding granted by courses that study the work of a single director. Students will practice a variety of critical approaches on a single subject: genre and auteur theory, cultural studies, and close reading of individual episodes. The goal will be a more complete understanding of the series and its meanings. (Translation: it’s not fanboy, but I do respect the artistry and politics of the series.)
The price of admission: It’s $710. The course materials would be buying a few books, and either renting or purchasing seasons of the series. The start date would be January 29th and it would end on May 7th. You’d get an enriching experience and 3 academic credits.
You can see how to register for “Truths My TV Told Me: Deconstructing Buffy” (CSB 315X-C1) here: http://www.massart.edu/at_massart/academic_prgms/continuing/info/registration/how/
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me at my Emerson account, which is David_Kociemba “at” emerson “dot” edu.
