Just when you think Amber Benson can't get more awesome, she get's awesome-er!

In her blog, as well as twitter, she say's she'll be signing and selling "Checkpoint Tara" dolls to raise money for the Los Angeles foodbanks. They are $100 a piece.

I just wanted to repost her efforts because I think what she's doing is wonderful and if this helps getting more people to buy Tara and essentially helping hundreds of hungry people then all the better!

I so want that signed Tara doll!....i'm off to look for all the spare change in my house!

Here's the direct link to her blog and Tara For Charity site:

It's another personalized Triangle Tara for me and a warm feeling that, via Amber's bottomless generosity and compassion, I have been able to help feed the hungry in L..A.

Oh, I wish I had money to help Amber feed the poor... The thing is that I have no cent left.

Amber is so amazing, being worried with the poor and so. That's another reason for being her fan: she isn't worried only about her own life, she care about the world.
And that Tara doll is so cute... I want one!! :peace

Triangle Tara thanked me personally today by arriving on my doorstep all boxed up and both signed and personalized by her physical projection into the real world whom we all know and love by the name of Amber.
Amber also wrote me a note wishing me good luck on my novel which I am finishing the last chapter on and which she is both my muse and the model for my chanteuse heroine.
That, in this regeneration, is what the holidays are all about; helping those less fortunate than myself and being grateful for what I do have which allows me to help those who need the neccesities which we take for granted.

Amber Benson has an interview up on AfterEllen!

http://www.afterellen.com/people/2010/6/amber-benson

Go, go read!

Okay, just read it - hot pictures included!!!!

Oh and

*SPOILER WARNING FOR INTERVIEW*

"I knew how I wanted it to end, but I wasn’t sure it was gonna go that way. Sometimes things change because the characters don’t want to do what I want them to do."


Lol, I laughed pretty hard at that, it's always happening when I'm writing, my ending is completely different to what I envisioned.

Pretty awesome interview I thought overall. Glad AfterEllen did it. Now to petition to get them to do an Alyson Hannigan one!!

EDIT: Eek, just re-read and winced slightly at the words 'lifestyle choice'...but I don't like reading too much into every word people say so I'm gonna let it go lol

Sometimes, well, there are only so many terms in the English language, you end up using a word or phrase ebcause it fits.
And, let's be honest, the jokes you tell and the restaurants you like and et cetera aren't born in anybody.
those pics are adorable. I've seen the tabloid articles, I'd gotten thinking nobody looks good seen thru the evil cmaera w/o make-up, but I was wrong. wow!

Pretty nice, as always. I do have one minor disagreement; it is not too bad here in the midwest if you are gay. Well, I should say here in Iowa, where gays can actually marry. I work with two folk who are both married, one a woman married in CA to her partnet and moved here, and the second a man who married his partner, and no one thinks twice about it. Actuallky, we just don't even think about it at all; just a couple of more couples who got married. :-)

I loved the interview. She's awesome!
And about the "lifestyle choice", Amber said on Twitter:
Quote:
To clarify in @afterellen interview (http://ow.ly/17ERXm) when I say 'lifestyle choice' I'm referring to living an 'openly' gay life.

One of the things I admire most about Amber is her complete honesty and complete lack of spreading the bullshit.
She speaks her mind and tells it straight up directly making the conscious choice to be to thine own self be true.
Amber and a professional photographer doing the whole hair and make-up thing is wow, just wow.
Having just finished my own novel, I know exactly about characters not doing what you want them to do in how their story ends up.
Yay for a fourth novel in the Death's daughter trilogy, though.
Douglas Adams would have heartily approved.

Greetings!

Despite my reservations about feeding slavish devotion to the cult of celebrity... I noticed a few items of interest on the now-public Con schedule that I thought I should share:

1. Amber Benson will be on a writing panel (something about borrowing existing world mythology for your own worlds) on Thurs 10:30-11:30 in 24ABC.

2. Anthony Stewart Head will be on a panel (re: something called Merlin) on Sunday 11:45-12:45 in 6BCF.

3. There is a legal/sanctioned OMWF singalong in Ballroom 20 on Sun 4-5pm (very end of the Con).

I imagine that there is a reasonable chance that one or both of the celebrity-types mentioned may show up at #3. This is not insider info- just conjecture... Amber is early in the Con, so she may well have gone back up north by then.

-Never


---------
Edited to add:

Comic Con has been sold out for months... but just so you know, people return their badges for refunds and they get officially resold. At today's staff mtg they told us that there were Sunday badges for sale on the Con site this afternoon.

*Oh, and the ones that go on eBay (ie, scalped)? They get canceled- you could end up waiting in that big ol' line, get to the end, and get a "sorry, no good". Don't risk it. We've caught a bunch of um already.

FYI for Anthony Head, Merlin is an original show on the Scy/Fy channel based, you guessed it, on the King Arthur/Merlin legend/myth but with Merlin as the main character. Anthony plays Uther Pendragon Arthur's father.

Not a bad show either.

Heh.

That blog summarizes the panel content reasonably well...

A few other facts. After they said "I think the wall is buzzing", it was followed by "I think it's a bomb". Just what I want to hear when I'm running a room... -_-"

Ah well, this will be my Con Story of the Year. I seem to get a fun one annually.

So, Boston Comic Con might be over, but I wanted to let people know that Amber is coming back for Wizard World New England Convention which is going to be in Boston October 15-17 at Hynes Convention Center.

Anyone potentially interested in going? There's a whole flock of Buffy cast members going! Amber Benson, Nick Brendon, Charisma Carpenter, Clare Kramer, Mercedes McNab, and James Marsters will all be there! =D I was definitely sold after Amber and James, but the others are a really nice plus too.

Live in So Cal?

There's an Among the Ghosts signing in San Diego September 19th at Mysterious Galaxy.

Also, according to Christopher Golden, "there will be a signing with Amber Benson, Tom Sniegoski and I will be signing at Dark Delicacies in Burbank, CA on Thursday, 9/30, at 7pm." I can't find a mention of this on the Dark Delicacies site yet, nor has Amber tweeted about it yet.

So would it be fair to say that everything Oldemburg is new again?
Amberhol is going international in casting a wide net of bringing "Drones" to a wider audience as the grinding oppression of the masses and the hint of your office-worker is an alien are both universal phenomena.
