Patreon Reward: Amilyn

Amilyn is the major vampire henchman of the “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” movie. To this day, I have still never seen the movie, and I have never watched the TV show. Nothing to do with newly problematic individuals Joss Whedon or Kristi Swanson. It’s just even as a 14 year old, I thought “This seems dumb as fuck”. And then eventually with the TV show, I thought “they made that dumb as fuck movie a tv series?!”. I did try to watch the movie a few months ago. I made it 10 minutes in before I decided that the dialogue was so fucking terrible there was no way I was ever gonna make it through. And at this point, I just have zero desire to ever watch the show. I was, however, a huge fan of “Angel”.

Amilyn is portrayed by the recently, dearly departed Paul Reubens – better known as Pee-Wee Herman. Usually I am not affected by celebrity deaths, but his passing really bummed me out. I grew up on his HBO special (which was NOT kid appropriate!), the Tim Burton movie was on a constant rotation, and of course the Pee-Wee Playhouse show. After he moved on from Pee-Wee (and his weird fall from grace – which was SO overblown and pretty tame by most other celebrity falls from grace), I loved seeing him pop up as an actor in things. I feel like this was his first real post-Pee-Wee role. I didn’t care so much for his return as Pee-Wee, but maybe he felt it was necessary. Either way, I’m glad he remained in the public consciousness and it’s incredibly sad that he is gone so soon. Fuck cancer.

I’m still here.
