sing-a-song of saffron

The good folk over at Serenity Stuff.Com have posted all the entries to their “Sing-A-Song Of Saffron” competition, and there is some really great stuff to listen to. I had a hard job picking my three faves, but I managed to make my mind up eventually! 🙂

Special mentions for Marian Call, Satori and Heather Ackroyd. But don’t take my word for it, go check them out for yourselves and choose your favourites.

“Drive” No More?

Final Drive

Well it may not come as much of a surprise to those that are familiar with the Fox TV network, but it seems as though after promising to air the last two filmed episodes of “Drive” (first on July 4th then moving it to the 13th) the executives have decided to scrap the whole thing.

You can read more about it over at Whedonesque as it seems that for the moment Fox have removed the announcement from their own site.

Episodes of “Standoff” (Gina Torres) and “Bones” (David Boreanaz) are currently scheduled to air in its place. I guess they know which fan group it is they are upsetting. 😉

Joss “The Boss” Whedon has taken some time out to answer fan questions over at the MySpace comic book site. It’s only a few minutes long but as usual with Joss Whedon it is well worth a look, though he is still dodging the “Goners” questions Gorram it!

According to their site:

We took YOUR questions from MySpace Comic Books and brought them to Joss Whedon. Check out his thoughts on love, Astonishing X-Men, and his next project. Joss is auctioning off dinner with him during San Diego Comic Con to benefit Equality Now. For more information, visit: http://www.myspace.com/equality_now

Firefly in Space!Over at the Great White Snark website they have posted an article looking at eight reasons why you are missing out if you have yet to watch any of Joss Whedon’s Firefly ‘verse.

My favourite: #6, Serenifly in Space! Click through for their full article.

I’m sure you fans can think of a couple of other reasons to recommend Serenifly, so let’s hear them in the comments.

Doctor Who = Buffy?

Hannah Betts over at the Times Online compares the modern Doctor Who with Joss Whedon’s “Buffy”, looking at Russell T. Davies ‘sexing up’ of the series. Mr. Davies has previously expressed his admiration for Joss’ work, and it certainly shows in the latest installments.I for one am really enjoying the current series of Doctor Who, though I would still sacrifice it for more Whedon. 😉

Times Online

The Doctor’s
recreator, Russell T. Davies, has expressed his admiration for Joss Whedon,
the genius behind Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and the series gets Buffier by
the moment: witty, literate, sophisticated, and revelling in postmodern
panache. Blink, the episode preceding this trilogy, was awesomely
terrifying in the manner of Whedon’s Emmy Award-nominated silent episode of
Buffy entitled Hush.

There’s another pleasing aspect to all this Buffiness: a certain – let us
express it in Blair terminology – sexing up of proceedings.

James MarstersFor those of us who were unable to attend Collectormania this year Steve Himber over at James Marsters Live.com has kindly provided a transcript of the Q & A from the Sunday.

As always James is very entertaining and there are plenty of great anecdotes that he shares, looking at his singing as well as his acting, and some of his hopes for the future. The full Q & A was over an hour so there is plenty to read, just makes me really wish I could of been there to hear it all ‘live’.

It’s well worth a taking a look at so click through for the full transcript.
