IF THE APOCALYPSE COMES, BEEP ME
There’s a really big, really freaky secret revealed in the latest issue — #17 Time of Your Life, Part Two — of the Buffy Season 8 comic series.
If you’re a Buffy fan, you must go buy it.
Here’s a panel from early on in the issue, in which we learn that Willow’s spell has transported Buffy into the future (don’t worry, that’s not the big secret).
For those of you wondering, yes, that’s supposed to be Kennedy in the blue top. I’m not really digging the art for this arc — it’s hard to tell who anyone is — but the story is fascinating.
And did I mention there’s a big reveal? Still. Reeling. (For a teaser, look at the third photo here.)
ITTY BITTY TRAILER CONTEST
AfterEllen.com has partnered with POWER UP to offer a trailer/fan video contest for their feature film Itty Bitty Titty Committee.
POWER UP has created a page with official clips, photos and music that you can use to create a trailer for the movie. Cut, mix, match and add your own art, text and voice-overs to make this a trailer/fan video for the story in the movie — or make it seem like another movie altogether. Instead of a movie about women protesting a plastic surgery clinic, for example, you could make it look like a movie about protesting the lack of lesbians on TV. Or a love triangle in an all-girl band. Or a 1950s cautionary tale about the perils of women being allowed to think for themselves. You get the idea.
Here are the rules:
1. The video can be as short as you like, but not longer than 1 minute 30 seconds.
2. You may add original art work, photos and/or music, as long as you own the copyright of all added material (and please, no profanity).
3. You must upload your entry to AfterEllen.com via the upload form at www.afterellen.com/video/upload (a link to this page is now listed under the MORE section on the left nav of every page) by Monday, Aug. 25 for judging. Please provide contact info in the message box, and put “Itty Bitty Contest: [your name]” in the subject field.
4. You may not post, share or do anything with the video created with official IBTC clips other than submit it to AfterEllen.com for possible inclusion on the site.
We’ll choose the most interesting, entertaining and creative trailers as the winner(s) and post the videos on AfterEllen.com sometime between Aug. 29 and Sept. 2. The winner will receive an autographed copy of Itty Bitty Titty Committee, an autographed cast poster, and the praise and adulation of AfterEllen.com readers around the world. (The runner-ups will just receive praise and adulation.)
You can pre-order the movie on DVD now at www.ittybittydvd.com to receive it on Sept. 2nd. (The movie is also being released in Germany, France, Australia and New Zealand on that date.)

BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE!
Lindsay Lohan and Samantha Ronson were spotted laughing at Tila Tequila and her latest hookup, Yahoo! heiress Courtenay Semel.
Ilene Chaiken will now control all "brand integration," aka product placement, in the final season of The L Word and on its possible spin-off, according to an Advertising Age article entitled “On Ad-Less ‘L Word,’ Brands Become Part of the Plot.”
Interlude, billed as "the print magazine for chicks … who like chicks," has relaunched after a three-year hiatus.
After its 31st episode this Sunday, Brunch With Bridget will be going on hiatus for a month — OK, five weeks — so Bridget McManus can gear up for her second "season", which begins September 21. Bridget will also guest-star this fall in a new web series for Warner Brothers called Joni & Susanna which stars Joni Leftkowitz (whom you might remember from the very first BWB) and Susannah Fogel as two passive-aggressive friends. In the series, Joni is gay, Susanna’s straight, and Bridget plays a gay comedian named Bridget. (Talk about stretching credibility!) We’ll
pump Joni for more info give you more details about the series as we get closer to its launch date.
Next week’s episode of This Just Out with Liz Feldman has a very special guest you won’t want to miss. Look for that on Monday Monday Monday!
