Good morning all, and Happy Friday!
So listen – now that you’re here, I have to tell you: my original plan for today’s post has gone completely out the window. And it’s all Joss Whedon’s fault.
My initial idea, which came after a particularly long day in Corporate World, and may or may not have been heavily influenced by my writing more procedural documents about tracking escalated customer complaints in a ten hour span than one person really ought to be writing in the history of ever, was to give you a recap of all of the awesome things that I came across on my television and computer screens this week. Some quick hits of pop culture pizazz. An anti-procedural anti-document, if you will.
How hard could it be? I thought to myself, while trying to decide if I could skip the pretending-to-be-an-adult portion of my evening and go straight from Corporate World clothes to pajama pants. I’ve already got a moonwalking pony, and Jeff Winger is going to stop by at 8 o’clock with some devastatingly handsome one-liners, so I should be all set.
Then Joss Whedon showed up.
Don’t worry – I promise I haven’t graduated from Imaginary Boyfriends to full-on hallucinations. It was actually news about his latest project that showed up on all my favourite entertainment blogs.
You guys, Joss has written and directed a film adaptation of “Much Ado About Nothing”!! And Nathan Fillion is in it!!!!
I cannot even begin to express the amount of swooning the trailer for this movie causes in my geeky little theater loving soul. “Much Ado About Nothing” is a long-time favourite of mine; I want to be able to engage in witty banter like Beatrice when I grow up. Throw in a beloved Imaginary Boyfriend, an actor from one of My Favourite Television Shows You’ve Never Heard Of, and a jazzy soundtrack and …
… maybe you should just watch for yourselves.
I’m off to make a giant calendar counting down the days until this hits theatres – in the meantime, if you’re like me and have an overwhelming urge to hear the track that’s playing in that video just once more because it’s so cool – I’ve included it for you below. Have a wonderful weekend everybody!
