Joss Whedon Continues to Reaffirm Awesomeness

Joss Whedon posted on his blog about the success of The Avengers and it is predictably awesome. He confirms that he is an unemotional alien and that he is ditching us to “concentrate on fame [and] Euro-trash guy-jewelry.” But seriously, he acknowledges the buzz about his new big shot status and confirms that his modesty is intact: with The Avengers he will now be recognized at Comic-Con, be able to pay for a meal that includes truffles AND direct that much anticipated Air Bud reboot. What did Whedonites need to hear? Exactly what Joss tells us: “What doesn’t change is anything that matters.” He calls us his peeps and himself a cult oddity.

It is ridiculous how effortlessly he could fit into the Buffy cast picture here.

“Because you knew me when. If you think topping a box office record compares with someone telling you your work helped them through a rough time, you’re probably new here.” Insert many emoticons of happy sobbing. But topping a box office record is “super-dope”! Hooray!

My fellow Whedonites, he is taking us with him into the mainstream: “this is our time of streaming into the main, to crow. To glow. To crow and go ‘I told you so’…”. He momentarily jumbles my mind by mentioning Christopher Nolan and The Dark Knight Rises.  Nolan became one of my favorite directors with Memento, and he has gone mainstream with relative success at staying true to his vision. So, even more hope for a continued world of Whedon.

Anyone concerned about Dr. Horrible 2 and Much Ado about Nothing? He says Dr. H is cooking and Much Ado is on its way. Also, TV is his great love. I am pretty sure growing up with Buffy has shaped my life into Joss Whedon’s image.

Finally, as if this post didn’t just make my life complete already he concludes: “Hope you’ll continue to carry the banner even though other people may have joined the parade. (Kind of a gay pride/Newsies vibe…”. He did it. He effin’ concluded with a Newsies reference.

Off to listen to the Newsies soundtrack…
