What would Joss Whedon Twitter?

Top Ten: What Would Joss Whedon Twitter? � Great White Snark

#1 Moving ahead quickly on my latest script. Thank goodness for lesbians, the best answer to writer’s block.

#2 @NathanFillion: When you were drunk at the Serenity wrap party, you signed a lifetime contract to appear in all of my work. Just FYI.

#3 Fox wants me to pitch my show to the trades. Too lazy. Told them to copy-and-paste the standard “band of lovable misfits” bit.

#4 How do I write women so well? A night of “What Not to Wear” on TV and a couple of Appletinis before sitting down to the typewriter. Bliss.

#5 Brainstorm! New premise: Old West meets deep sea ocean exploration in the future. And everyone curses in Russian.

#6 My perfect woman: the grace of @SummerGlau, the passion of @ElizaDushku, and the sparkling eyes of @NathanFillion.

#7 Just saw Cloverfield. Could have used a few musical numbers to liven it up.

#8 Stylist out of town. Frustrated. This hair doesn’t dishevel itself!

#9 @SMG Really? Scooby-Doo and Harvard Man, but no Buffy movie? Really?

#10 Had same nightmare again. People almost discover Serenity and Alien 4 are the same film. Forced to distract them with more lesbians.

Silverman gets Emmy nomination for "I'm Fucking Matt Damon"

sarah_silverman.jpgFox News | Emmy Irony: Sarah Silverman Gets Nod for 'Matt Damon' Song
The 37-year-old comedienne was nominated for an Emmy on Thursday for her song "I'm F---ing Matt Damon," a YouTube favorite made popular on Kimmel's late-night talk show back when Kimmel and Silverman still were a couple. It was created to celebrate their fifth anniversary in February. Silverman was nominated in the outstanding original music and lyrics category, along with co-writers and co-composers Tony Baubirei, Wayne McClaucey, Sal Lacono and Dan Warner. The nomination comes three days after a rep for the comedy couple confirmed they had called it quits.

Dr. Horrible, Act I is live

Dr. Horrible

And pretty awesome.

It'll be free online this week, followed by a DVD at some later date.

Radical conservatives terrified of Pixar's WALL-E

Think Progress -- Right-Wing Apoplectic Over Pixar’s WALL-E: ‘Malthusian Fear Mongering,’ ‘Fascistic Elements’

Shannen Coffin: From the first moment of the film, my kids were bombarded with leftist propaganda about the evils of mankind. It’s a shame, too, because the robot had promise. The story was just awful, however.

Greg Pollowitz: It was like a 90-minute lecture on the dangers of over consumption, big corporations, and the destruction of the environment. … Much to Disney’s chagrin, I will do my part to avoid future environmental armageddon by boycotting any and all WALL-E merchandise and I hope others join my crusade.

Glenn Beck: I can’t wait to teach my kids how we’ve destroyed the Earth. … Pixar is teaching. I can’t wait. You know if your kid has ever come home and said, “Dad, how come we use so much styrofoam,” oh, this is the movie for you.

Dirty Harry: Have we lost Pixar? Have we lost the wonderful studio who brought us The Incredibles and Ratatouille to Bush Derangement Syndrome? Here you have a winning streak going back ten-years, enormous amounts of public goodwill, equal amounts of credibility as serious storytellers, and they stop things cold, yanking you out of the story with the liberal nonsense. Quite a disappointment.

Uncut Metropolis discovered

ECTOPLASMOSIS! -- Metropolis Rediscovered

Oh wow. I can't wait to see this.

Up until now the only way one could see Metropolis — Fritz Lang’s cinematic masterpiece — in its original, uncut form was to build a time machine and travel back to Berlin between January and May, 1927. When it was released in America, Paramount edited it considerably, leaving us with the beautiful, yet confusing, version we have today. All this has changed recently with the discovery of the previously lost footage in the film archives of Museo del Cine in Buenos Aires by the current curator Paula Felix-Didier.

Among the footage that has now been discovered, according to the unanimous opinion of the three experts that ZEITmagazin asked to appraise the pictures, there are several scenes which are essential in order to understand the film: The role played by the actor Fritz Rasp in the film for instance, can finally be understood. Other scenes, such as for instance the saving of the children from the worker’s underworld, are considerably more dramatic.
