Show #092: That Time We Almost Met Joss Whedon

The ninety-twostrd episode of our podcast, Paul and Storm Talk About Some Stuff for Five to Ten Minutes (On Average), is now online.

This week’s episode: a reasonably thorough breakdown of our Comic-Con and w00tstock 2.4 experience, including such topics as camelcase; the multiple possible con tracks one can enjoy; the Guild Bollywood-style promo video; Mollystock and the maturity of Molly Lewis; Storm was Rockin’ Chewie; and the Story We’re Going to Tell Forevermore Regarding How Joss Whedon Got Turned Away at the Door of W00tstock. Also: Chief, Marian Call, and a new spoiler alert rule. Oh yeah: and JoCo Cruise Crazy.

    Joss is going to hold this against Paul for the rest of his life.

    Just watch: The finale of the Avengers movie will be the epic battle of Hulk vs. Paul

    He is a petty, petty man. Pray for Paul.

    One year hence, this will be nothing but a funny story that Paul and Joss tell people. 🙂

    Molly is ubiquitous. A good friend who had never heard of Molly before linked to her blog post about Show Tours closing down:

    I’m glad I didn’t have to type out that URL! Better not invite Mr. Lucas on the cruise.

    I am so jealous. By the time I started thinking about planning a trip to Comic Con the passes were sold out. I might have come just for w00tstock but that’s a hell of a drive from Ohio. The youtube vids of the show are slaking my thirst at least.

    You may have avoided a disaster, though. Had Weadon entered the building you would have reached nerd critical mass and torn a hole in spacetime out of which Sephiroth, Steven Hawking, and Elvis (not real Elvis, but Bruce Campbell playing Elvis) would have popped and begun dancing the Tango that Ends the Universe.

    So… kudos on that not letting that happen.

    I misspelled Whedon. Let the flagellation commence.

    First of all, Molly is a true rock star and an all-around classy dame.

    Second, I can’t believe that the club security turned the Whedons away from w00tstock during Comic-Con!!!!! That’s either the most awesome or most horrible thing I’ve heard this week. Possibly both. Though JD may have a point — it might have caused the universe to implode prematurely. I hope you get another shot at fulfilling Whedon Watch soon.

    Ouch, sorry about the Whedon near miss. You would think the local business would have a “Nerd Royalty Mug Shot list” or something. Looks like Joss will have to send twice as many creepy-photoshopped birthday cards to Paul next year to make up for it. If it makes you guys feel any better (doubtful, but still), I missed seeing Bruce Springsteen this weekend by FEET (Walking down the Asbury Park boardwalk, past the Stone Pony. Friends and I decided not to go in b/c we didn’t know who was playing. Little did we know on the other side of the door, Bruce had randomly decided to sit in on a set. AARGH)

    Will be buying my ticket to the Jammin’ Java show next week AND it’ll be my friend’s first P&S show to boot! Oooh, you know what ELSE would be an awesome show at JJ? W00tStock DC. I mean, Storm already lives here, I’ll help on merch…I see no flaws in this plan. 😉
