Wizard Magazine #197 Features a Joss Q & A. There isn't a version of it online as of yet, but the magazine is on the stands now. Joss discusses his runs on Runaways and Astonishing X-Men which are both scheduled to drop the same day. Also (PIE SPOILERS!!!), his favorite pie (strawberry rhubarb) is discussed. You have been warned.

Other things discussed include additional writers for Buffy (Brad Meltzer!) and how everything is plotted out to issue 40, which will "...be absolutely the end of it until the beginning of Season 9." Also, Dollhouse, being called a god, and the word avocado. Not necessarily in that order. Go. Now. Buy :)

ETA - in other Whedon-y news for this issue... SMG, Eliza, Charisma and Summer all make the list of 25 Hottest Women on TV. And before anyone objects to the title, they spend a lot of time on how smart the badass ladies in question are (and say that emotional development and knowing multiple languages are indicators of hotness). This is a magazine read by a large number of geeks after all. Andrew will be pleased to find Gillian Anderson on the list as well.

PIE SPOILERS is my new favourite thing. Every day would be better if it included this phrase.
gossi - (PIE SPOILER!!!) Pecan pie and its grown up cousin Walnut Molasses are both awesome.
I hate to spoil anything or post any more than is fair of the article but this is one of my favorite Joss quotes ever (re: Astonishing X-Men:

"And that may or may not mean death. But is it going to be harsh? Let's see. Let me look in the mirror... "Oh, it's Joss Whedon!" Yes, it's probably gonna be harsh.
Hey, I just looked in the mirror and nearly threw up. But at least I didn't think of death! I'm looking on the positives today. (PIE SPOILERS!)
omg, that means the entire goners site is one huge spoiler. And yes (PIE SPOILER!!!) strawberry rhubarb pie is the best, followed by strawberry rhubarb jam and strawberry rhubarb danish and strawberry rhubarb cobbler...

Gosh, rhubarb is hard to type. O.o

Oh, wait, should I have used jam spoiler and danish spoiler and -- okay, that's too much even for me.
As long as "Pie Spoilers" doesn't mean spoiled pie.
omg, that means the entire goners site is one huge spoiler.

But there isn't a Goners site anymore. ;)

(PIE SPOILERS!!!) Key lime, or a nice cherry.
(PIE SPOILERS!!) Chocolate mousse, with strawberries.

Where did Goners went? I feel as if someone cut off one of my much-loved and very necessary fingers or toes. Me wants my Precioussssss.

Call me.


ETA: Not a rodent, but a pie.

Hehehe, I think QG has opened herself to receiving many many chocorodents in the future. ;)
Curse my compulsive True Mistake Confessions. I foresee an inundation of Dancing Chocolate Rodentia.

BTW, I just visited serenitymovie.org for a little team spirit and now I'm... resting more comfortably and patiently...

I may end up baking gossi a (PIE SPOILERS) pie. Sans mouse.
I know it's not very glamorous, but my favorite pie is still pumpkin.

But, by what I can retroactively insist is a meaningful coincidence, strawberry rhubarb is my favorite kind of jam/jelly/preserves/fruitglop. I grew up with strawberry rhubarb jam, but never had it in pie form. Now I feel deprived and require hugs.
(PIE SPOILER) lemon icebox or chocolate.
(PIE SPOILERS!!!) Dutch apple and Marionberry are colluding...
Love the quote, zeitgeist. Joss Whedon has some admirable self-awareness. His favorite pie is really very seasonal... I wonder if recent exposure to said pie makes him less inclined to kill beloved characters. Maybe the narrow window of annual pie availability directly correlates to the fact that he likes to off our favorites. Someone should undertake this experiment. Start a (WHEDON PIE SPOILER) strawberry rhubarb campaign for Joss! Save the next victim!

(RAGGEDY PIE SPOILERS) For me, it would have to be a homemade apple pie with a thick slice of sharp cheddar cheese (or a cheddar crust!) or perhaps a dark chocolate peanut butter pie with a graham cracker crust. It's a toss-up.

I object to the title ! Did they take the temperature of every woman on TV ? So how can they possibly claim this list is in any way fair or objective ? And how is knowing multiple languages related to the average kinetic energy of your molecules ? It's both a travesty and an affront to people of temperature everywhere. Quite frankly I am appalled ...

And does he mean pie or crumble ? Cos rhubarb is without a doubt the king of crumbles whereas banoffee and even plain old apple - served with vanilla ice-cream - give it a run in the pie stakes IMO (also, where does cheesecake fall on the pie spectrum ? Cos that could throw the proverbial cat amongst the worm cans).
It's settled - Joss needs to mention "PIE SPOILERS" in an upcoming project.

I'm thinking "Sugarshock: PIE SPOILERS!!!" myself.
Oh my goodness, I didn't realize he [PIE SPOILERS!!!] O.O Is Joss Whedon a renaissance man or what? *begins plotting The Great Goners Thanksgiving Kidnap Kaper*
Step 1 to Kidnap Kaper: don't announce on Whedonesque. Shi----iooot!
Step 2: plot new caper
Step 3: don't announce that planning is underway on Whed-- Oh, bugger...
Step 4: Steal underpants.
Step 5: ??
Step 6: PROFIT!
LOL. Hey, Z, you're just the kind of guy we're looking for to run our top-secret hush-hush confidential public relations department, the TGGTKKTSHHCPRD. It just rolls off the tongue, don't it? :D

Edited for typo :P
