I am so deeply moved by the love that has already been demonstrated by so many of you for Davyd and for me, in this devastating loss.  It is so gratifying to see that he was so deeply loved by so many and it is my hope that his spirit continue to be celebrated in his art and the art of others. If you feel so moved please make a contribution to The Art of Elysium or The Children of War Foundation, two organizations that were close to Davyd’s heart.

Create in the spirit with which he created — with passion, with single-pointedness, with love and abandon, with hope for a better, kinder world.

We are hoping to have a memorial service for Davyd on Saturday, October 25 in Los Angeles, location yet to be determined. But I welcome anyone who can come, who has been touched by his wonderful, lovely, generous spirit.  So please plan to attend if you feel so moved and I will be posting details soon.

For those of you who don’t know yet, our dear Norman Buckley lost his husband this week. Please keep Norman, as well as Davyd’s family and friends, in your thoughts and if you feel moved to, donate to one of the charities that Davyd felt passionate about.

I think one of the reasons Norman doesn’t ship fictional relationships is because he personally lived one of the greatest love stories of all-time. I am so saddened for his loss, but so grateful to know that he appreciated every single day he spent with Davyd. If you follow Norman on Instagram then you know that he frequently referred to Davyd as “the greatest person in the world.” I should only be so lucky to find someone who thinks that highly of me someday.

Does it concern anyone else that Norman Buckley doesn't like Ezria?

How can one respond to this with class, I wonder?

I’d be more concerned if he did like Ezria, tbh. Why on earth would a middle-aged man be expected to like them? It’s a relationship between a predator in a position of authority and an emotionally vulnerable teenage girl. Why does anyone like Ezria??

like further than that, why should a middle age man like any of the relationships on this show?  they’re portraying teenagers… it’d be weird if he WAS getting excited about one of them, to be honest.  except maybe paily/emison because that one also throws out messages of acceptance.

even further than THAT.  the whole point of PLL isn’t the relationships.  i love spoby to the moon and back and then some, but it’d still be pll without all of that.  people need to remember that when they’re getting all frantic about their ship.

Amen to that. Anytime I’m asked who I ship, I always say that I ship the girls’ friendships with one another. Not the manipulative, exploitative crap that Alison pulls, but the real friendships between the Core Four, the girls that would do anything for each other, the girls who trust each other with their own lives. That’s what we should hope the young teenage crowd is learning from the show; how to build and maintain strong friendships with other women. It seems like we’re always supposed to be in some sort of competition with one another, and very rarely do I see friendships between women valued as highly as they are on PLL. I definitely think that gets overshadowed by all of the drama in the “romantic” relationships and that’s a damn shame.

Spooky coincidence

I recently starting watching the show Medium and I came across a funny little coincide. The main character has three daughters and the youngest daughter (Marie) is played by twins Miranda and Madison Carabello. Those same twins played the Halloween Twins on PLL. In the very last episode of Medium there is a time jump that features a teenage Marie played by…Sasha Pieterse! So weird!

"I want fans to know that the decision to tell this story was made a long time ago," the showrunner explained. "I think sometimes these episodes are promoted for the shock value, like ‘Oh my gosh all of the sudden someone’s going to die!’ But I don’t want people to think that this was haphazard in any way. We weren’t spinning the dial and saying, ‘Okay it landed on that person, time for them to die!’ It was nothing like that,” she said. “This story point came to us over a year ago and it felt like it was a very important part of the big Pretty Little Liars story that we needed to tell.” x
