Vampire Valentine's

Flowers: $20
Chocolate: $35
Romantic candle-lit dinner for two: $100
Spending Valentine's Day with James Marsters: Priceless?

Actually, a price has been set for that particular enjoyment, naughty as it may be. For $195 dollars you can make your (read: my) dreams come true. Valentine's Day with Spike. This is not a joke.

The South Orange Performing Arts Center (SOPAC) in New Jersey is hosting, James Marsters: Your Funny Valentine, on February 15. It's all James, all day. Mind you, the $195 is only for regular admission, for $225 you're a VIP (closer seating). Guess what? All 150 available tickets are sold out. Besides spending time with this handsome man, here's what the lucky few can expect:
  • Exclusive theatrical performance 
  • Signed souvenir from Dragonball 
  • Personalised autograph 
  • Q&A with James 
  • Photo session (with professional event photographer) 
  • Acoustic concert 
  • Screenings 
  • Free raffle for exclusive goods
This could be you!

Crazy? Yes. Completely original and amazing? Absolutely. He really needs to give his manager a raise for coming up with this one. Forgetting the extra VIP price, with just regular admission he's making around $30,000 for a days work. And when I say work I mean, having women scream your name and paw at you all day.

I actually heard about the event a while ago but it was too rich for my blood. However, I just found out a limited number of seats have been released for the evening concert portion of the event and tickets are only $20! I may have to go. If for nothing else, just so I can tell people I spent Valentine's Day with Spike.

Now please, let me leave you with one of my favorite quotes from Buffy, spoken by Spike of course: "Real love isn't brains, children. It's blood. It's blood screaming inside you to work its will. I may be love's bitch, but at least I'm man enough to admit it."

"I may be love's bitch, but at least I'm man enough to admit it." - truer words were never uttered.

Also, "You're a wee, little puppet man" is right up there, too.

Ah-mazing. I'm wondering if someone paid extra, he'd speak in his lovely British accent the entire time?

SCREAM! PAW! I want to do that! XD Spike is my favorite character from the show. And Marsters is so damn hot!

One of my favorites Spike quotes is like, "Come one, vampires---rrrr, nasty! Let's annihilate them. For justice, and for ... the safety of puppies, and ... Christmas! Let's fight that evil! Let's kill something! Oh, come on!"

And more recently, "Someday he'll be a real boy." :D
