Meaningless random observations - Finally got to meet Joss

So that was nice. Dublin is not glamorous for a red carpet event but it was fun to say hi. Also met Whedonesque's site owner Caroline for the first time ever. Which was very cool indeed. And Much Ado is very good indeed. Lots of visual humour (best comedy moments Joss had done to date)  and Alexis and Amy shine through out (there's an amazing powerful scene which tops anything they did on Angel). Everyone  brings their game to the table, Clark Gregg especially. And who knew Shakespeare covered slut shaming? Everyone probably apart from me, but it made me think so I can take that from the movie.

Basically the movie features all your favourite Mutant Enemy writers and actors and they're all having loads of fun. It's like Oceans 12 except good.

Yay! Simon met Joss! After years of being a custodian to his fansite, it's nice to hear you actually got to meet the guy!

Very excited about Much Ado now that I've heard it's really good. And your line about Ocean's 12 made me LOL.

Heh, when I saw your title and the first sentence "So that was nice", it made me think of Patrick Nice from The Fast Show. I can imagine him saying something like:

"So I finally got to meet Joss. I gave him my screenplay, and we sat and talked the whole night about Buffy and Firefly and Shakespeare and his favorite comics and the meaning of life. Then he introduced me to Robert Downey Jr., Samuel L. Jackson and Scarlett Johansson and I went with them to a party the next night. Then the next day Joss called me and told me he loved my script and he wants me to be one of the head writers for his new S.H.I.E.L.D. TV show.
Which was nice."
