I’m watching the Doctor Who premiere and cutting monkey ears out of felt. And thinking about how I want to start reading tarot cards more regularly. And If I should dye my hair tonight. 

So, in other words, I’m doing a good job of avoiding the things i need to be doing.

last night a guy said to me “you are very, very pretty” and i said “i know” and he said like patronisingly “you KNOW?” and i said “you think you’re the first person to ever compliment me?” and he didn’t know where to go from there

i get so offended when people dont like my favorite characters

i get even more offended when people think they love them more than me

Now that I can catch my breath a little, I’m going to do a giveaway for 2 copies of Joss Whedon: The Biography.

image(<—-look! I wrote a book!)

To Read Makes Our Speaking English Good:

Joss Whedon: The Biography follows his development from a creative childhood and teenager who spent years spent away from family at an elite English public school, through his early successes, which often turned into frustrating heartbreak in both television (Roseanne) and film (Buffy the Vampire Slayer; Alien: Resurrection). He took the chance to reinvent his girl hero on a baby television network, and the resulting success and confidence led him to produce four more television series, several movies and Marvel comic books. Through it all, Whedon continues to reinterpret and reinvent storytelling on his own terms.

The book includes extensive, original interviews with: Joss and his wife Kai, Nathan Fillion, Tim Minear, David Greenwalt, Anthony Stewart Head, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Tom Hiddleston, Mark Ruffalo, Clark Gregg, Chris Hemsworth, Cobie Smulders, Jeremy Renner, Samuel L. Jackson, Kevin Feige, Joe Quesada, Jeph Loeb, Drew Goddard, Marti Noxon, Jane Espenson, Andrew Stanton, Howard Gordon,Neil Patrick Harris, Rob Thomas, and many more. 

"Though Whedon’s many fans are fairly familiar with the ups and downs of his career, the many frank quotes from Whedon, his friends, family, and coworkers make Pascale’s absorbing bio a must-read." —Booklist

Joss Whedon: The Biography is an insightful, entertaining, engaging, and intimate account of the life and work of one the most talented and successful artists of our time. Writer Amy Pascale paints her portrait of Whedon adeptly, often serving not as an author, but rather a facilitator, compiling insights from a variety of sources to construct a compelling narrative spanning from Whedon’s grandparents through the modern era to his successes within the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Pascale draws upon many individuals, including Whedon himself, to give the readers a true understanding of writer and director’s motivations, creative process, struggles, humor, and personal convictions, which evolve and mature over the course of many decades and experiences. — Geek Scholars

Pascale has certainly done her homework, and has produced a great book, and it’s rare that film/TV autobiographies are this enjoyable. But just like much of Whedon’s work, it’s smart, funny and cool, and should definitely grace any geeks bedside table. — Flickering Myth
