Joss Whedon talks Glee, Terminator and the Dr Horrible sequel. He's willing to go up to $15,000 for the Terminator franchise, he'll be shooting the Glee episode in March (it's his favourite new show) and he thinks Horrible Turn is "itsy kitschy glitzy" (turns out it should be "itsy kitsy goodsy") .

"itsy kitschy glitzy"?
I'm happy to hear that Joss feels that we're his friends and that posting here at Whedonesque brightens his day, at least that is what I understood when he said:
"I was depressed one morning and I thought ‘Ah, I’ll cheer myself up,” because I had seen that and thought, “Gosh, I wish I had the wherewithal to buy the Terminator franchise. That would be amazing.’ So as a lark, I decided to make a pitch during my morning tea..."
Don't ever lose the tongue-in-cheekiness, Apocalyptic Daydreamer.
embers, I didn't immediately think that, but the sentiment is quite nice. It gives me gleefully warm itsy kitschy fuzzies.
Nice to read comments from a producer type person without him taking potshots at "V" ;-)
I am so glad he did the whole Terminator joke, but my god the venom it churned up on other sites. I've been defending him in other boards and was blown away how systematically everyone started picking me apart as well as Joss. Apparently the intraweb is no place for satirical comedy when it comes to what fanboys covet.

*eye roll*
He's willing to go up to $15,000 for the Terminator franchise

The thing would be to now offer $8,000, then we fans can pool together $6,000 before Joss jumps in with an offer of $5K to take it off their hands before the value drops to nothing! ;)
For the record, the term is "Itsy Kitsy Goodsy", and it's cribbed from an old Mad Magazine story about King Kong I read as a child. Factman strikes!
Factman better not be on strike! Not again, not yet. :)
Hee hee...I get to post after Joss!

Yeah, Mad Magazine is pure awesomeness!

That is all.
peacemonger beat me to it!

I'm so sad now! :)
Well, thank you Factman for clearing that up, because I didn't know what you were talking about. Wait a second, I still don't...
Well, someone had to say it.
That makes far more sense than what they had it as, which prompted my "huh".

No, I mean it. It makes more sense. I'm actually not being facetious.
Isn't it distressing how proclaiming one's earnestness invariably causes people to scrutinize it more closely? That having been said, b!X, I believe you. Seriously.
Joss posts are always made of awesome, no matter how brief. Made me smile through a rotten cold.
(Then I sneezed on my keyboard. I hope it doesn't get sick). ;)
So, from now on, instead of like, OMG, or ROFL, we'll say, "IKG!".

ooh, I like IKG! And really how many of those "other" forums were gonna get the joke on the terminator thing? Meh. I get my news and well thought out commentary HERE lads and ladies! Plus: purple prose!
and it's cribbed from an old Mad Magazine story about King Kong I read as a child.


I read that and a Spy vs Spy episode of Dollhouse sprung to mind.
and now I have the fruity oaty bar song stuck in my head....
Can't wait for the Factman/Buffy crossover! Will Factman appear in the Dr. Horrible sequel? Played by Sarah Michelle?

Hee hee hee.
