“Listen,” I say unto them. “You’re all a bunch of whiny little titbabies. Joss Whedon is a storyteller and you’re upset because he isn’t acting like a music box, playing you your favorite song again and again.
“Joss Whedon made me care about the X-men, even Cyclops. He sold me on space cowboys. He made me sing in the shower and write fanfiction for the first time in my life. He told me a subtle story with Dollhouse and gave me the best character arc I’ve ever seen with Wesley Wyndam-Pryce.”
“Why don’t you marry him?” someone shouts from the audience.
“Because of Proposition 8,” I shot back. “And because he never returns my calls.”
Pictures I took on May 16, 2013 during the moderated Q&A that followed the opening of the SIFF, featuring a showing of director Joss Whedon’s movie adaptation of Shakespeare’s MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING.
The film played at McGraw Hall at Seattle Center to an audience of 3000. Tickets sold out within 6 hours of the showing being announced as the gala premiere of the festival. I’d never seen a movie with a crowd that large before.
So much awesome….
That’s right. I was HERE for this.
