4 Things that makes me an Andy obsessive 💚

Sometimes it does feel weird feeling this way, but I can't help it. Maybe you're feeling the same ?

Green is never again the same colour to you as before. Andy's iconic character, Lorne, changes everything and where everything starts. Green is never again the same and demons are ain't the same to you after knowing this one from Pylea.

If Andy’s name is not on the credits, you feel disappointed. From the beginning you know he becomes regular, so seaon 4 is exciting and season 5 of Angel become the best of all.

Lady Marmelaid is never the same again despite Christina Aguilera’s cover on Moulin Rouge. It was a great cover, and I love the movie, but Andy's voice in there gives it a different colour.

When you name things related to Andy with his name instead of the name's object. I tend to lose my keys very often (it's a Andy Hallett/Angel keyring) so I have found myself many times saying "Where's my Andy?" and all people around looking around get all puzzled (lol). 😁

What other things you think makes all addicted to Andy?. 💚

Wandering around

I have been two weeks since the last time I wrote something in here, I've been busy with work and family life but I also have been wondering all these things that have been happening in my life lately where it would take me.

You might know that every decision we make marks the path we are to make on our lives. I wonder then if the path I'm now taking is taking me somewhere, and where it should take me.

I have been picturing myself in this little town of Cape Cod in 10 years time, wandering around, travelling - as I have always wanted- those places that would remind me somehow to those people I love - that might be still alive or not-. There are so many places I want to go, so many places I want to visit back and remember how life brought me to that moment.

I have so many plans for this place, and I hope everything will work out so I can reach my goal - which I'm still defining.

But in all this, something wonderful it is happening. I feel magic is all around me.

And I'm sure you are wondering "What the Hell has to do this with Andy?". It's all related, because those things that make me dream, those are the things that keep me going in this tough world: music, tv shows, good people (good hearted people), green & red (LOL) and this place.

I will be sharing with you very soon some of my projects that I hope you like, and may want to join me in this fun ride.

My Place is Your Place

One of the greatest things of getting into de Buffyverse is that you find out the bunch of people that still love the shows. Of course, Angel is a recent but very deep influence in me and  I'm finding out there are lots of people watching Angel for the first time and getting to know Lorne.

Another of the great things is that you get to  know those long-time fans of Andy and Lorne. How is he missed and how people still love and reminding his unique soul.

So if you ever wonder what is this site for, it is just that. The place to remember Andy, a Tribute place where we can all share memories on him, to celebrate every piece of happiness and joy he gave us all. The place where you can always come back to pay tribute to one of the most unique souls this world ever had.

One of the reasons why I started this place, my place, is because I hate having all the information scattered around Internet, so I do pretend to have all of it in here -little by little- and also a place where people can find about Andy and other's people thoughts on him. All in one place.

But mostly this fun for me. I love doing this and I hope you like it here. Of course, if you want, you can share with me your suggestions on how to improve this place by making it OUR place. Visit aorund and tell me what you think!

Thank you for checking in!

Merry Christmas ! 🎄❇

11 Reasons To Love Lorne 💗

I was viewing some videos when I came across with this one which I thought was a funny one. It was exactly what I was looking for to post in here!

I just transcribed the video because there are some parts that cannot be read well.  But it is definetely a worth watching and reading, they are fun at the least!

Video and copywright on the following to Lady Nafertiti.

Number 1
If you are curious about what the hell he is, he doesn’t seem to mind when you poke him… as Fred seems to be doing and by the looks of her she’s fascinated by him…

Number 2
He is nice guy… uh…demon, as he always seems to have smile on his face unless he is reading you …

Number 3
He is an empathy demon and he can read aura’s and tell your destiny, all you have to do to find it out.  Just sing a little song and it doesn’t matter which one. ^_^

Number 4
He is nearly always there if you need someone to listen to your problems and to get and get advice … well he’s your man…well, demon…

Number 5
If you are female… and with Lorne you can always be sure he will compliment you as he’s just full of them ^_~ (Come on girls, we like to be complimented, don’t we?)

Number 6
You know you will always be saved from having to hear Angel sing with Lorne around as he puts a stop TP it straight away…

Number 7
You never have to worry about going out on the town with Lorne and him getting drunk on you to the point where you have carry him home as the effects of normal alcohol don’t affect him, although be careful around certain magical brews!!!

Number 8
He’s the host of a club called Caritas, where you will be saved as he makes sure there’s a spell on the club that doesn’t allow demon or human violence in it. So you can have fun and a safe night out at Caritas

Number 9
You’re guaranteed a good laugh with Lorne around as he can be quite comical at times… and we all love a good laugh… The great thing is the doesn’t mind being the comedian  ^_^

Number 10
If you are having trouble sleeping… call on him and ask him to sing you to sleep, he might oblige if you ask nicely.
Just be careful not to sing along though, cause if you love him to bits he might just read you!!!

And last but not least:

While with Lorne you never have to worry about him raising his hand to you if you piss him off, he absolutely hates violence of any shape or form (Ladies, that’s gotta be a Bonus!!)

... so in the end you may agree or may not... But I have to confess that I've seen myself few times on number 10...  💗

I am not ready to be on the spotlight

On my last post I shared with you some strange day I was having. That bittersweet day when things get on well but all of a sudden you realise you are not ready for all of it.

So this one, it is in fact that moment that I have been fearing the most. The reality hitting me directly on my face.

Things were going OK. I started being part of the Buffyverse, Whedonverse etc. So the start is like you have this group where people will share thoughts, moments and comments on our favourite shows but you have no-one else to talk about this stuff. Tara, Willow, Buffy, Dawn, Kennedy, Spike -oh Spike!- etc. 

You are getting to know all this people in there...

And then someone posted a beautiful collage of photos of Lorne and Andy. People commenting: R.I.P., I miss him, Oh I didnt know he passed away, Loved him etc

Posted on Facebook by Christine Schmoeger

I couldn't help but comment on it on present tense. Because it is all present tense for me. For all those that had the enormous chance and fortune to meet/know him back in the day, it's all past, just the memory lives on forever as a present tense.

I can't imagined how hard was for Andy's family, fans, friends and people that knew him and discovered his soul and grace.  But for me it's double hard, not comparing at all, but you have to face this awesome man is gone forever while you live your present but trying to make up your mind that despite you see him and what you feel, that has to be over soon because it ain't real.

And then here comes me, with an extraordinary imagination, trying to convince myself this is some kind of wrong but right thing at the same time. Some kind of weird and awesome thing (I think).

And Angel will show up in reruns in the future and people, other people, will discover Lorne and will be touched by Andy's sould and heart. And everything will start again.

So after all, I am not ready just yet to post this public everywhere. I am not ready to the Whedonverse know about what has just happened in my life.... and how that changed my life.

And how much I want my life to be this way (despite it means to live in the past forever)...


So after all, there's only one thing left to say... :

Merry Christmas to ya'll

It feels like Christmas already!

Maybe because last month was my birthday or maybe am I having a pre-Christmas celebration? ...

The most awesome thing happened to me just the other day.

I was as usual working at home when a big package came. My husband unwrapped it there it was: green, with his own mic, a glass of whisky AND the autograph of Andy. That Limited Edition Autographed Lorne Figure made my day and my week. Probaly he is now my favourite "toy" to play with (I guess, that didn't sound very good, did it? 😃)

Just a few photos to share here with you:

I'm so excited i just can't hide it!!! (*Sings the song*) 😃

When you search #AndyHallett on Twitter

Today  is not  a normal day.  It's  my birthday.  I had  a real  blast  with friends  coming  over, presents  and all that  stuff.

But then  all of a sudden I felt  sad  and with  a little  ache  in my heart....

It just so happens that until today I didn't search Andy's name on Twitter.

All those tweets were like a dose of reality at once.

I fear the moment I do again.

What a stupid thing made my day!!

What I weird week I'm having. It's something between "Yeah I'm getting my goals" and " No, not yet. I'm not ready to be in the spotlight". Something between personal and proffesional goals. 

And it does scare a bit. The good one was, as I tell you now:

I was this morning watching this video of "Why you should watch Angel" and thinking "I have to tag Netflix on this one, they have to show this up". 

My husband meanwhile was right behind me. I didn't know why. I thought he was also watching the video, but when Lorne come up on it I begged silence in the room. I didn't notice there was something else waiting to be reached by me.

So after all, I looked at my husband and he said " I have a surprise for you". Just in the table, right in front me the most awesome keyring ever. What such stupid thing made my day!!!

Now my keys look cool and heartfelt. Even with a touch of green...

So, Do you like my keyring? Send me your thoughts below, thank you!

Andy Hallett's death *Sigh*

It's been a hectic weekend this one. I've gone through all this information around our Andy. For those we didn't know about him and all of sudden we discover what a unique soul he was makes it double hard to face all at once: life and death. All at once. Only 33 years this dude had.What a very sad and shocking fact.

I got all this information in just 24 hrs. Nothing but browsing and googling Andy's name. What a mad weekend and how shocking was all.

But In the end I got to learn so much about his life by everyone's reviews and memories on him. He was so loved I doubt he is still here with us. He must be up in Heaven having so much fun with all those stars gone in the latest years. He must be a very shining star now,

And after all I just keep in my heart Alexis Denisof's words in a interview (in 2014, I think it was):

"What a just spectacular person he was, what a rare and unique find. So I love you, Andy, and I miss you." Read the whole Interview Here.

And this song from me to Andy Hallett, my little tribute today to him:

R.I.P. Andy. Can't wait to meet you on the other side.
