random ramblings of an unconscious mind
Buffy fans will always reserve a special place for James Marsters (aka Spike)! The vamp with the British accent, who -incidentally- inspired Billy Idol’s look, was the reason i went to Fangoria‘s Weekend of Horrors convention @Jacob Javits center in 2009, to watch him sing unplugged to a -mainly- female audience sitting down on the floor while he played his guitar. Unfortunately the laptop which i had stored the video-documents of that performance has crashed&burned long ago, however thanks to social media i found a couple of pics i had posted on fb back in the day, and there were many posts on youtube of the event.
After this little intro to James, you can understand why my heart skipped a beat when i saw him guest starring at TBS’ Wedding Band, episode 9 as a British Rock Star. Overall, I would say that the episode is average, but i was thrilled to watch him on screen again, curse and sing in British. I snipped this little clip from the episode for your enjoyment, no spoilers included.
Since Buffy, i have watched him in Three Inches (dreadful TV movie that you should not watch), Smallville, Caprica, Hawaii Five-0, Supernatural, etc, but i have to admit that, subjectively, my personal favorite performance was when he was in Torchwood, as Captain John Hart.
Great music, books and everything that's art & culture
