Joss Whedon: A Sing-Along, Screening and Q&A. In NYC on September 21. Joss will host a screening of Dr Horrible and special guests will also appear at this benefit for 826NYC.

I followed a link on the 826NYC site to this too-cool website.

Wish I could go to the sing-along.

Joss Whedon hosts! Whoo-hoo!
Ohhh, special guests! Wonder who.
This really sounds like a great event, and very reasonably priced too... I wish I could be in NYC in September!
Bought mine wooohooo! Finally Joss will be in NYC for a sing-a-long, and for some reason I'm more excited that it's for Dr. Horrible than Buffy. This is going to be great. I actually met Joss 5 1/2 years ago outside this same building when he took part in the Stephen Sondheim tribute. Craziness.
Monday. Blast. I would love to go to this, but Monday nights are difficult. Maybe I can work this somehow.

Annamaria Was that 51/2 years ago? Wow. I was there, but couldn't get in that time. I really should find a way to go to this.

Thanks for heads up! Picked up tickets. U2 concerts that week too.

Starts resting.
"For up to date information, please visit www.826nyc.org."

Except when looking at the link provided, there IS no up to date information posted about this event. In fact, there is no event posting past the first week of August, and no page items for the Sing-A-Long. LOL

:)
NEIL PATRICK HARRIS IS IN STARSHIP TROOPERS!!?!?!?!?


Sorry, just realised this while watching it, and had to share.
I bought my tix!
newcj - I waited in line allll dayyyy but never got in. All my friends ended up leaving me because I held onto the hope that I'd make it inside when Joss would be on stage (they were more interested in Sondheim - we were all our high school's production of Into The Woods a week before). I listened to his "segment" through the outdoor speakers, but a little while after he finished, he came strolling out the doors with his entourage of friends and passed right in front of me. I freaked out, chased him across the street, and had him sign my OMWF companion book. It was glorious.

Seriously cannot believe I was in high school when that happened and now I'm a college grad. Time really does fly. Hope you can make it!!
It would be cool if "special guests" included Sondheim in a sort of "passing the torch."
I was outside listening to the outdoor speakers too, but I didn't see Joss. I just listened and went home. (sniff) ;)
Purchased! These are the days I want to hug this site! And then bake it cookies.
Got my tix! Can't wait!!!!

Aww, I'd like to go to this and NY is super easy for me, but the timing isn't stellar. I assume we'll get lovely reports here from those going, yes? :)

I ordered mine yesterday and got an email confirmation almost immediately. But I was checking my CC for something else and didn't see the transaction. I've never paid much attention how long that kind of thing takes to go through. So, anyone else seeing it listed on their credit card accounts already?

(And no, I am not saying there is something wrong. I'm just curious to see how long this type of thing takes to show up on my statement online.)
catherine,

Yeah, I'm hoping for lovely reports too! And from San Diego Comic-Con. 2nd best thing to being there.

NYPinTA,

I call my credit card companies and get recent transactions and balances. They usually say balance may not relect transactions made in the last 24 hours. So it is normal for things not to show up for a day or two. I have one credit card that says here is your balance and there are these pending transactions even though they were at a store and there is nothing pending about the transaction at all. Then they show up in a day or two as a real transaction. It is probably the same with online transactions.
Probably. I'm just being a paranoid nudge.

And I'll try to be much more report-y than I was with Joss in Boston. (I still haven't done that one...)
I'm in. It'll be an early birthday present to myself.

Whoo-hoo! 10 whedonesquers!
I'm going too! Soon as I can get tix – gorram website is tellin' me my area code is invalid, gotta wait and call at 1 PM
malformed, check to see if your computer put your whole phone number in the area code slot. That's what my computer did (through autoformat) and I got the same "invalid" message. When I finally put my cursor into the slot and scrolled, I found the whole number in there (hitherto unseen). I deleted the extra numbers and presto! All fixed. The tix became mine. Worth a try.
You make me laugh, Anonymous1 :).
Thanks phlebotinin! Tix are now mine as well!

Whoo-hoo! 11 whedonesquers! ;)
I still haven't gotten to see Joss, and NYC isn't terribly far from me (Washington, DC area). I'm going to have to try and go. Wish it weren't on a Monday.

Whedonesquers - fancy a meetup before the show (dinner maybe?)
Absolutely!! with the dinner meet up
Erm... how should we organize a dinner meetup? There's no way to PM or email Whedonesquers.
You could use the .org discussion forum, maybe.

You need to log in to be able to post comments.
