... on entirely non-work topics: Whedon, The Cabin in the Woods, and rambling into steampunk!

(Beginning review: Wed Jul 9 10:37:57 2008 PDT)
# <- (10:38) From sj [awake (why?!)][WFH], to water, geektalk, Movies:
# - According to Yahoo! News, MGM has given the go-ahead for production on
# - "The Cabin in the Woods", co-written Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard. Goddard
# - will direct and Whedon will produce.
#
# -> (10:38) From ashton [@2000, la humidee], to water:
# - Coming next, "The Cottage By The Lake", followed by "The Split-Level Ranch
# - In The Subdivision".
#
# <- (10:38) From sj [awake (why?!)][WFH], to water, geektalk, Movies:
# - (which is the first I'd even heard of it, showing how out of the loop I am)
#
# -> (10:38) From ashton [@2000, la humidee], to water:
# - With the special short film "The Outhouse On The Prairie".
#
# <- (10:38) From sj [awake (why?!)][WFH], to water:
# - ashton - geez, don't ruin the trilogy!
#
# -> (10:39) From ashton [@2000, la humidee], to water:
# - In the end, it turns out that they're ALL THE SAME HOUSE.
#
# > (10:39, to cooler) ashton ruins it for sj
#
# <- (10:39) From sj [awake (why?!)][WFH], to water:
# - WUH!
#
# -> (10:39) From mjr, to water:
# - What a twist!
#
# <- (10:39) From sj [awake (why?!)][WFH], to water:
# - That sounds more M. Knight Shyamalan than Joss Whedon or Drew Goddard. :)
#
# > (10:39, to cooler) ashton . o O (Starring Mark Wahlberg as the cedar
# > siding)
#
# -> (10:39) From mjr, to water:
# - It was supposed to.
#
# < (10:40, to cooler) sj says, "He was BORN for that role."
#
# -> (10:40) From ashton [@2000, la humidee], to water:
# - For Joss Whedon, just add "IN SPACE"
#
# -> (10:40) From ashton [@2000, la humidee], to water:
# - Or "STEAMPUNK"
#
# -> (10:40) From mcl [@2000, exhausted], to water:
# - does a bisexual vampire fall in love with the ghost of a 1930's noir
# - hard-nosed detective whose spirit is trapped in the same house, and they
# - communicate by leaving words spelled out on a scrabble board?
#
# -> (10:40) From mjr, to water:
# - Little House in the Asteroid Belt
#
# <- (10:40) From sj [awake (why?!)][WFH], to water:
# - The very idea of a Joss Whedon steampunk series is mind-blowingly awesome
#
# -> (10:41) From ashton [@2000, la humidee], to water:
# - Asteroid Of Sand And Fog
#
# -> (10:41) From mcl [@2000, exhausted], to water:
# - been done. He called it, "Firefly".
#
# -> (10:41) From mcl [@2000, exhausted], to water:
# - if you're willing to overlook fusion and things like that.
#
# -> (10:41) From ashton [@2000, la humidee], to water:
# - yes, but, see, this new one is about the Cabin in the Woods /with
# - fireflies/.
#
# <- (10:41) From sj [awake (why?!)][WFH], to water:
# - hah! not exactly steampunk
#
# -> (10:41) From mcl [@2000, exhausted], to water:
# - it's steampunk with fusion reactors. Same thing.
#
# -> (10:41) From ashton [@2000, la humidee], to water:
# - Nukepunk
#
# -> (10:41) From mcl [@2000, exhausted], to water:
# - steampunk isn't even sure what it is.
#
# -> (10:42) From mjr, to water:
# - It involves lots of brass fittings, generally.
#
# -> (10:42) From mcl [@2000, exhausted], to water:
# - and petticoats.
#
# -> (10:42) From ashton [@2000, la humidee], to water:
# - Leave your personal life out of this.
#
# -> (10:42) From mcl [@2000, exhausted], to water:
# - and english accents.
#
# <- (10:43) From sj [awake (why?!)][WFH], to water:
# - I suppose there /were/ goggles in Serenity
#
# <- (10:44) From sj [awake (why?!)][WFH], to water:
# - I was about to say "it's not steampunk without goggles"
#
# -> (10:44) From ashton [@2000, la humidee], to water:
# - It's not steampunk without cleavage
#
# -> (10:44) From mcl [@2000, exhausted], to water:
# - covered in goggles, brass fittings, petticoats, and bacon.
#
# -> (10:44) From mcl [@2000, exhausted], to water:
# - with a random monocle for good measure.
