Nathan blogs on My Space. Wait, or was it Jason Bateman? You have to be one of Nathan's friends (which I totally am because I'm special) to read his My Space blog.

I am not a cold-hearted wench, thank goodness! It would've struck me to the heart to think Nathan thought so. And my mother is not a Possi-Bot, thank God. And now I'm really lookin' forward to Casino Royale since obviously Nathan and I have exactly the same tastes!!!
I don't know why I didn't think to post this. I was probably too busy with the squee.
That guy is too cute for words. Bateman's got nothin' on him! :-)
I read Jason Bateman just became a dad for the first time. I wonder if anyone ever mistakes him for Nathan? Well, this is one of the funniest blogs I've ever read (not to mention, really unique movie recommendations -- yes, I, too, want the opportunity to pee my shorts a little! -- er, too much information?). Thanks for this post, Harmalicious; I had wanted to read this yesterday, but I'm still waiting for the Captain to add me. *sits in the corner staring at the MySpace inbox* ;-)

Possi-bot. Okay, I'm going to have to find a way to use this word on a semi-regular basis. No wonder Joss loves this guy; they're like mental twins.
*sits down to wait with billz*

I friended Cappy just so I could read this update as well...no reply as of yet!
Nathan just totally called me an idiot. Rock on! Okay, so, he was possibly talking about his Lost character, but I like to think he secretly hates me.




I have issues.
Want some Mr. Pibb, mifeng? Oh, wait, that was another thread. ;-)

Yep, I've avoided MySpace like it was the plague -- don't want icky mail in my inbox from "I'm Waiting For You Big Boy" or "Peep These" or whatever -- but, it's Nathany goodness, yo. Plus, there seem to be a few Whedonesquers around, too, so, fun. :-)

ETA: gossi, dude, he was totally talking to his imaginary secretary. Just because his imaginary secretary is called Kevin doesn't mean he hates you. He can hate you for totally different reasons. *leaves room fast* ;-)

Don't look at them as issues gossi, look at them as an opportunity to pursue a higher level of mental health (see, glass half full ;).

Nathan doing that thing he does, always a joy.

Quite like the look of 'Stranger Than Fiction' and he's absolutely right about 'Casino Royale'. That particular sequence had me riveted. Sure, it's a stunt that in theory any film hero could do but, y'know, like the song says, 'nobody does it better' ;).

(at one point I almost applauded - felt like a few people wanted to - and British film audiences just don't do that in my experience. Very much 'James Bond Begins' and FWIW, I second that Fillion bloke's recommendation. Totally the fresh approach the franchise - hate that word - needed after the near implosion that was 'Die Another Day')
So, Nathan's imaginary secretary is gossi?
o.O
Did anyone -see- that movie?!
You're welcome, billz! I hope you get added soon, I'm sure he'll get around to doing it eventually :)

Nathan still hasn't added me as an e-friend. Possibly because he hates me, or he's - like - got a life. Secretary? James Spader is god.
I wonder if Nathan hates James for goading him into doing the MySpace - I only hope he won't grow to regret it. It's so generous of him to pop in and say a few words.

In the comments section, someone mentioned Nathan influencing Alan to open one as well, and I wrote a comment that I would light a candle every night in honor of funny men if Alan would do it. Oh man, if only. Alan blogs famous quotations and speeches, inserting everywhere, "and he was "sexy, sexy, sexy."

EDIT: Oh God, I was afraid of that. Mods, please delete my extra post. Sorry!

Oh, I love that film. I'd be Nathan's secretary. I've had a dream along those very lines... [/tmi]
yes, of course.
But gossi already seems to have the..erm, role.
Isn't the whole point of making it friends only, so only his friends can read it? Instead of posting it willy nilly about the place.

I've edited accordingly.

Well at least I get to read it here since I just can't tolerate MySpace, or as I like to call it, "Geocities for the 21st Century". So thanks, Harmy!

The Fillion sure is funny.

Doh! Well, there goes that idea.

Simon: "Isn't the whole point of making it friends only, so only his friends can read it? Instead of posting it willy nilly about the place."

This was actually why I didn't try and post the link on here on the 17th when Nathan first blogged it...

Nathan is a quick & funny man, which Is why I'm sure Joss has joked so many times that he could've just let Nathan-as-Mal make up the dialogue himself and skip that pesky writing-part.

I'm proud to be one of Nathan's "special" gajillion-and-one myspace "friends." The Cap'n has also got to be one of the most good-natured men on the planet...
So true, Simon. You can delete my post if you like. Sorry to be willy nilly.

Simon, anyone can read his blogs and profile comments, and enjoy him that way without actually signing up for MySpace or being his "added" friend. As to posting a response, I'm not sure he's set his blog comments to friends only or if they're still public, because I posted a couple of things there before he "added" me. His profile comments; yes, you must be added as a friend first before being able to post anything.

ETA: And yes, the ways of MySpace are vast and mysterious.

This is what you see when you go to nathan's profile from the outside and click on his blog -- it seems to me to signify some kind of intention to reduce its public visibility.
Funny, funny guy.

I had no real interest in seeing Casino Royale (I am largely indifferent to Mr. Bond), but now I have to see just so I can say it was Casino Royawesome.

Ah, I apologize - someone has been training him on the hardware since the first big influx of friend requests. "Carry on!" [/TG]
Good job of making it work, Tonya J! ;-)

Congratulations and sympathy (and a big Xie Xie!) to Nathan and his carpal tunnel syndrome. I am among the 239 (if my math is right) people he (or imaginary Kevin) friended today. Also rocking: I was friended by real Kevin, too. You go, boys! ;-)
Just to mention that his first blog entry is public but obviously his second isn't. It's like friends only entries on LJ.
Well when I heard he had a myspace in the last thread, I sorted out my profile - then myspace went all peculiar on me and I couldn't get in. It appears to be back now so I have put in a 'be my friend' request.

Gonna be sitting in the corner with everyone else.
My only other question would be ... why Kevin? It's not the name of a character in Secretary or in Swimming With Sharks (Kevin Spacey plays the mean agent Buddy Ackerman, though, who throws pencils at poor Frank Whaley's head) but we know Kevin Spacey ain't Nathan's secretary. Does he have a brother named Kevin? And what does a male secretary have that a female secretary doesn't?

No, no, of course I'm not obsessing - it's just so interesting he plucked that name out of the air.
Yeah, with MySpace, there are the options to make particular blog posts "friends only" and I'm guessing since this is all new to him, that extra level of control makes him more comfortable.

But it's really great to get occasional doses of his wonderful sense of humor without having to wait for another scripted project. :D
For those of you waiting for Mr. Fillion to add you on MySpace -- he's up to 4218 friends. I think the man must not have slept for, like, 3 days, because he was around 3500 friends this past weekend. Our Captain rocks *hard*, yo. ;-)
Or the mysterious other Kevin does ;).
I wish that someone would suggest to Nathan that he could set up his site so that the public could read it but only friends could comment.
And if his blog is too private to be read by us lesser mortals then should it even be linked here at Whedonesque? Just saying.
Tonya - his character on Lost was/is called Kevin. It's a rubbish name.
OH DUH! {slaps forehead}

Dude, you know it's not a rubbish name. Kevin Kline wears it proudly; Kevin Spacey; Kevin Dillon; Kevin McCarthy, Kevin Pollak (brilliant comedian); Kevin Bacon ...

I think he made the blog friends-only as an incentive for folks to friend him. The first taste's for free, and all...

And really, it's not asking that much. I didn't have any compelling need to have a MySpace page, much less have him listed as a friend. But the blog thing is incentive enough, and the least I could do is acknowledge to him (by friending him, or whatever the lingo is), that I care enough to read them. Anyway, MySpace seems to have some reasonable privacy options, and I figure I can always cancel the account if it becomes a hassle.
