My name is Benji, I'm 33, have four great kids and live in China, ME. and honestly only watch television when my wife is watching television, otherwise I have buffy or angel dvds going at all times (it's become like comfort food for my brain).

I have yet to pick up any of the comic's, which is ironic as I used to collect comics when I was younger, plus I suppose a part of me is reluctant to make the leap from live-actors to drawn.


I created custom ring-tones for every family member listed in my cell phone which I recorded from a character or reference from buffy or angel episode:

  • Randy (my uncle):
Randy Giles? Why not just call me Horny Giles, or Desparate-for-a-shag Giles?! I knew there was a reason I hated you...Randy is a family name, undoubtedly...
  • Gaye (my aunt):
Willow! I'm going me up, comon, let's gay! Just...tell me what to do..I'm mentally undressing Scott Bakula, that's a start, right? Ahhhh....captain Archer. Comon! Let's get this gay show on the gay road, help me out here!
  • Sharon (my mother):
I'm Kevin.......Sharon........Don't you hate places like this?
  • Tami (my wife):
...Just ask Tammy here.....Tammy where?.....Hello miss.
  • Tisha (aka Tish, my wifes sister)
You ever hear of the T'ish Magev? Thank you Ramone, I was just thinkin' I'd rather be drinkin!
  • Skip (my wifes father):
You're....death?...You've come to take me....Hahahahahahahaha!....Kidding, I'm Skip!
  • Judy (my wifes mother):
Gosh...I mean that was....gosh...Listen, I know we got off on the wrong foot. My name is Judy.
  • Marcie (my wifes best friend):
You guys didn't know Marcie Ross? Never met her why? Cause you both wrote it too. Have a nice...yeeesh! Where am I?...Oh, have a Great summer, see I cared!
  • Angel (my sister):
And this whole I'm Angel thing is a very, very bad idea. I mean, if I thought that would work, I could've been Angel, because, guess what, pretty much a girly name!
  • Aleasha (aka Leash/my sister):
...shoulda put a leash on him...yes let's tie ourselves to the crazy vampire...
  • Ryan (my wifes brother):
Ryan's bad...Ryan's always been bad...
  • Benji (myself! (on my wifes phone)):
So, what's the hubbub, bub? What do you got against old Benji?

Family Name Coincidences

My daughter's name is Willow, named after powerful witch Willow Rosenberg from of course Buffy the Vampire Slayer, a (post-modern) gothic cult tv series from the 90's/early 2k's.

My sisters name is Angel, named after powerful witch Angelique from the show Dark Shadows, a gothic cult tv series from the 70's. (This witch has a twin sister named Alexis, which is my daughter Willow's middle name, chosen by my wife created an unintentional coincidence.)

If I were born a girl, my name would have been Mandy after Barry Manilow's song Mandy, which is one of Angel's favorite songs on the show.
