A Buffy (the Vampire Slayer) Gif Battle

It’s happening right now

What do you discover when you hang out with women who grew up in the 90's?

Deep, dark love for Buffy the Vampire Slayer. So much knowledge bottled up for (nearly) 20 years and very specific scenes stashed away, probably of some shirtless vampire — before they sparkled.

Angel, no thank you.

Riley — who?

Spike, yes ma’am.

So sitting around, drinking beer and recapping the show now is a potent, demented stroll down 90’s culture. From neck collars, flannel shirts wrapped around the waist, tribal tattoos, crop tops, frosted tips, leather trench coats, hair pins with flowers, flowers atop pencil erasers, flowers shoved into tiny pigtails. Flowers and more flowers. All of them daisies.


A plethora of phrases that sneak up on you and will exert the gulp of $9.99 Merlot straight out of your mouth like a freshly sliced artery in a Tarantino film. It feels too soon to talk about in a nostalgic manner. It’s almost dirty.

So what does a 20-something do with this pent-up Buffy energy? Wordless, mindless collecting of animated gifs in a tornado of collaboration. A now 10 day [gif battle] of Buffy gifs to combat the misplaced energy. And here they are:

See! Daisies.
