Video clip of Joss at Comic-Con. Clip being the operative word here but find out how he reacts to being asked "So Joss, why do you write these strong female characters?".

lol, excellent.
1) that was hilarious
2) can I have that giant AXM cover behind him?
Joss looks so thin... he needs to eat summat.
My master is so cute in person!
Funny!

Someone I know online was blessed with a phone call from Joss because her friend who was at comic con traded a photo for the call. She couldn't believe it was Joss calling her on the phone. She's still riding high on that one.
Wow, ElectricSpaceGirl. Your friend is LUCKY.
My family thinks I'm nuts because I just randomly laughed. Loud. But that was awesome.

He doesn't call, he doesn't write, and now he looks so thin. Sheesh, Joss, you know how we worry. It would kill you to maybe eat a nice roast and call once in a while? You're breaking our hearts here. You know how we are, we don't like to complain, and we know you're Mr. Always Busy Pants, but please, eat something and write when you can. Tell me, is that too much to ask?

Okay, I like Joss at any size and speed, but he does look thinner -- although SoCal was so bloody hot that day, I'll bet he was schvitzing. If he has gotten thinner, at least he can better play that "svelte and mysterious Jewel Thief" he described in his profile.

jfhlbuffy, I did a little laugh out loud, too, and choked on my low-fat oreo cookie. It was worth it -- I think I got it all out of the keyboard.
So the question now is, did this guy get his whedonesque membership, cause you know we are just the coolest. Don't believe me, Joss said so himself back in 2004 {wmv format}.
Great Joss vid RavenU. We are the coolest.
Ravenu, thanks eversomuch for that clip -- although I'm getting a little tired of scraping cookie out from between the laptop keys.

And now I'm charged with-- by the Ghost Of Whedon-posts Past, no less -- "behaving accordingly." I can't tell if I have been or if I should now. Or if I can.

Why doesn't Joss write more Strong Buffoon Female Characters? Then maybe, finally, at long last, I could relate.
WTF. Did no one -- no one AT ALL -- ask how much he got for his false b!X idol on eBay?
He doesn't call, he doesn't write, and now he looks so thin. Sheesh, Joss, you know how we worry. It would kill you to maybe eat a nice roast and call once in a while?

Nice one there QuoterGal.

I really miss Firefly (Sorry, I had to get that in 'cuz I don't appear here so often anymore and can't kibitz along with the rest of you Kool Kats. Sigh . . . Meanwhile, back to my other life . . .)
That was one of the funniest things I've seen as of late, and QuoterGal's disaproving mum bit was great too.
Thanks, Drifter and Archon Divinus, I think I must be plagiarizing channeling Elaine May from Nichols and May.

But why doesn't he write? Was it something we said? You know, he only writes or calls us when he needs money...

And if he thinks he's dragging his dirty laundry back here for me to do so he can sit all day long at that expensive computer machine playing Gods Knows What on the internets with Warren Ellis, well, mister, all I can say is you've got another think coming.

(I think I was supposed to use "gallivanting" and "traipsing around" in there somewhere, but I couldn't work it in.)
Lol, Quotergal, but you forgot "treats the place like a bloody hotel", "in and out at all hours of the day and night" and "i'll never have a braw hoose". Or was that just my Mum ? ;)

Funny clip. The more exposure stuff like this gets then hopefully the less he'll actually be asked the question by journalists (and with luck maybe some of them will think a bit about why he's pissed off being asked).
ESG - I still don't really understand how your friend got a call from Joss. Can you expound on that?

And, I've got a confession to make. I know why Joss hasn't eaten, or written lately.

I have him locked up in my basement, along with most of the cast members of Buffy, Angel, and Firefly, and I am forcing him to write and direct new episodes for my viewing pleasure.

Sometimes I let him out for comic cons and things... because I'm nice.
Do they have a bucket, Wesley Alex?
It's a green t-shirt. I told people in my convention report that it was pinkish. I must have been so stunned at seeing him walk by me that I conflated that pink backpack story with his shirt.
Or he carries spares in his pink mesh backpack. Green could be his lucky signing colour.
Alex, sorry I wasn't more clear. My online friend (I'll call her Sally) had a friend (Mary) who went to Comic-Con. Mary, instead of getting her photo with Joss, asked him to call Sally. Mary gave up her photo with Joss for this treat. Sally answered her phone, Joss told her who he was, and Sally was so freaked she thought it was a joke, yet realizing at the same time that it was his voice!

She was flustered, began thanking him over and over for the call. Joss of course had to pull out the funny with, "You're wearing what? I don't need to know that."

It was a short call, and she didn't say what all they talked about, or maybe she doesn't even remember because of the excitement. But that's basically what happened.
Saje, I hope he was carrying an extra t-shirt in his backpack because that booth area (blocks and blocks long x wide) was hot as Hades. That's one reason I didn't stay to get in line for the signing. I was a sweaty mess from all the walking around and would not have represented well ("Is my hair sticking up, my face flushed ... is that a trickle of SWEAT dropping from my forehead!?" Crikey.).
