Joss Whedon in Sydney

Joss Whedon in Sydney
Yesterday I joined the Snook and Kunaal at the Sydney Opera House to see Joss Whedon. It was pretty fun! Joss was hilarious, and Wil Andersen didn’t do too bad a job interviewing either. (There are a lot of quotes from the event here.) Then they opened it up for questions at the end, and I just CRINGED knowing what was going to happen. The Nerd Parade began! Instead of asking anything, you know, insightful, fully half of the people chosen used the opportunity to A) show off their fanboi credentials; B) beg Joss for a job/hug/lock of hair; C) explain their weirdo name, like we cared; D) ramble on and on in such a way that nobody knew what the actual question was. I mean, I know they’re my people and all, but why is it always the Aspies who go for the microphones?

  1. If I had words to explain how jealous I am, I would put them here.

  2. If they really were Aspies, there’s no way in hell they’d be anywhere near a public microphone. They’re just try-hard Aspies 🙂

  3. Oh, and *jealous*!!!

  4. I ended up going last minute with a group of friends. It was a lot of fun. I am not hugely familiar with his work (never seen Buffy or Angel) but I did enjoy it a lot.

  5. Don’t be too jealous. We paid pretty dearly for the privilege. I think somebody on Twitter calculated that the tickets were about $1/minute… 🙁

  6. I am jealous. Firefly is one of my favourite TV shows. Aspies, ha ha ha, cruel but hilarious.
