Tidbits from the sci-fi world…

Some little bits from the world of genre:

Joss Whedon Was My Crocheter Once

Back in December, Joss Whedon was interviewed by Kim Werker of Crochet Me.  They discussed his thoughts on what he describes as the ‘desperate rivalry between knitters and crocheters’, why crafters should watch Firefly, his secret past as a crocheter and knitter, and of course the ever popular Jayne Hat.

How did Kim score the interview?  By getting the entire geekcraft community to shout for his attention, of course.

Dr. Horrible, The Dark Knight, and Heroes rack up People’s Choice Awards

Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog has won the People’s Choice Award for Favorite Online Sensation, in the 35th Annual People’s Choice Awards, beating out other such online sensations as “Paris Hilton’s response to McCain ad”. In the other geeky categories, Heroes nabbed the spot for Favorite Sci-Fi/Fantasy Show, Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne/Batman got favorite superhero, and Christian and Heath beat out Harrison and Shia for Favorite On Screen Match Up. The Dark Knight beat out Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull and Iron Man for both favorite movie and favorite action movie.

Joss reviews Dr. Horrible… Sort of

With the DVD release of Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog coming up this Friday, the Amazon asked Joss Whedon to give it a review. A little odd, since he wrote it, so, well, he made his review a little odd in kind. It’s typical Joss goofiness, which is fun, and definitely worth a read. I give it forty eight billion stars.

I can’t wait to watch “Commentary!” the musical!

It’s Monday and I got nothing. Granted, I just got here, so don’t give up on us yet. But for now, take a look at The Secret Life of Toys. It has stormtroopers, Indiana Jones, and bloodthirsty Muppets. Score!

Is Dollhouse in the doghouse?

It’s like deja vu all over again.  Fox has decided to place the new Whedon show Dollhouse on Fridays at 9pm, Eastern.  Fans of Firefly are probably having flashbacks to its own deadly timeslot of Fridays at 9pm.  And it’ll be in competition with Clone Wars and whatever lands on that slot on SciFi, once Stargate Atlantis is off the air.  But they’re pairing it with The Sarah Connor Chronicles, so hopefully that will help it a little.

i09 is hopeful, though, and thinks this will be Joss’ best show ever.  Think those shiny thoughts, people!

Online Serenity comic from Dark Horse

Not sure how this one slipped under the radar, other than the fact that we were too busy re-watching Dr. Horrible… Last month’s Myspace Dark Horse Presents included a Serenity comic one-shot, entitled “The Other Half”. Once again, Mal learns that jobs are never as simple as they are supposed to be. Check it out at Issue 13 of Myspace Dark Horse Presents
