Today’s Daily Blog of the Day: Whedonesque

The Whedonverse fandom is a happy, enthusiastic bunch, and Whedonesque is a nifty way to keep up with that little world.

I may have mentioned this once or twice before, but I’m a huge fan of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. And Firefly. And Dr. Horrible. And I thought Cabin in the Woods was terrific.

So, yes, I read Whedonesque — an obsessive, frequently updated blog covering all things Joss Whedon.

Some of you are now saying, “oooh!” and clicking that link. You know who you are. You’re the ones who cheered Sunday night when Tara’s cousin won a Golden Globe. Others are rolling their eyes. (That’s fine — you’re not entirely wrong, but I will not apologize for this or even semi-apologize by calling this a “guilty” pleasure.)

Some of that blog is a bit much — like the steady stream of casting updates on every bit player from every show over the years. But part of what I really like about it is seeing how sprawling and insidious this little niche-world turns out to be. Here’s a thoughtful essay on “The Age of Enthusiasm,” which includes a long meditation on Jayne hats. Here’s that actresses roundtable I linked to a while back — which includes Emma Thompson riffing for a bit on Joss and Buffy. Here’s an update on the planned Guys and Dolls remake (to be written by Jonathan).

Anyway, if you share my affection for this particular slice of pop-culture bliss, you’ll want to check out this blog.

Grrr. Argh.
