Joss Whedon [Sep. 29th, 2006|09:14 pm]
Black Knight
I was walking in to Forbidden Planet (a gaming store in London) when who should be walking out, but Joss Whedon. So i shook him by the hand and told him what a great series firefly was. He said he was working on another sequel. I told him not to work with fox again, and he said it was the best advice he has ever had. then i shook by the hand again and he left.
Cool huh?

very cool.

Although you should also have told him to chain John Cassaday to a radiator and not let him out until he has finished another ten issues of Astonishing X-Men (and the rest of Planetary)

Hope you were too exuberantly fan-boyish. Don't want to scare the poor guy.

Dude? I'd say you need to take a moment's consideration of the hearts you're breaking right here:


Don't worry, folks. bl9_knt is as good, fine and decent a fellow as you will ever meet (except, of course, for the whole sorry strawberry gumbo incident back in '98) and you may rest assured that if he says that he chatted to Joss Whedon outside a comic book store, he did, in fact, fall to the ground before the one and only Joss, quivering like a gelatinous blob while whimpering "I'm not worthy..... not worthy...."

weird. people are talking about me on the internet, and speculating about my motives. if any one from whedonesque reads this, i was speaking about firefly, Joss said he was working on something, but it may have been a brush off (i didn't think I was being a fan boy but i wasn't on the reciving end).
All i can say is, heres hoping.
My girlfriend was sooooooooo envious. :)

It's a good thing I'm convalescing. Otherwise I might have to find a way to lay some major smackdown on the people who were saying you sounded dodgy or that you'd made the whole thing up.

Well, in a surprising turn of events, I ain't talking of 1998- for I knew him not then- but rather of 1798, when he wound up sucked through that time vortex to the Mediterranean which is all he probably talked about on your first date. He landed on HMS Vanguard, and cried "Holy shit! You're Lord Nelson!" (Only he wasn't quite then.) One thing led to another, and he wound up cooking his novelty strawberry gumbo for the crew. Obviously, everyone puked as a result, nobody was actually driving the ship, Vanguard wound up dismasted, and the consequent disorganisation meant that Nelson lost the opportunity for a strategic victory, having to settle instead for one hell of a tactical victory at the Nile.

On the plus side, however, Napoleon never forgot the vital role Paul played in his ascendancy to the imperial throne, and to this day, there is an inscription (if you know where to look) on the Arc D'Triumph announcing how generally neat the English cook was. I can only assume that he was too ashamed an Englishman to point it out during your recent jaunt to Paris.

Sooo jealous!

And I shall stick up for you on the Whedonesque if you wish - seeing as I know Ellen and know she wouldn't be fibbing about such stuff.

Joss posted at Whedonesque. You must have misunderstood him.

saw that. joss whedon posted about me!!!
even if it was to say i misunderstood. damn.
it was, in my defence, a very short conversation and clarity may have suffered somewhat. I was certainly asking about a Serenity sequel, although I did mention that whatever he did next would be great. I just felt kinda cool meeting the guy.
