The Mighty AdoAbouters!

And there came a day, a day unlike any other, when the verse's mightiest heroes and heroines found themselves united in an uncommon production… MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING!

Thespians, assemble!

1. Happy Birthday to Joss Whedon! Keep up the awesome, please. No pressure. Thank you. =)

2. Everyone should see MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING. Especially Shakespeare and Whedon fans, but still, EVERYone. It's so very accessible and charming and lovely. In the modern-day, cinematic form that Whedon builds around Shakespeare's original words, you quickly realize that the Bard really did write the world's first rom-com. Well, not counting Adam and Eve, y'know, if you look at it the right way. For Whedon fans, the casting makes for some really joyful wish fulfillment. Just go see it. NOT just another summer super Hero film! =)

3. And Many thanks to the Sunnydale Bard for sharing his creations and allowing his fans to play with them from time to time. Specifically I'm thinking of the MyMuchAdoPoster contest (for which the above was something of a by-product =) and the Evil League of Evil application videos.

4. I kitbashed the above poster, entered it for the contest as a non-starter (for legal reasons), and JW retweeted it! A weird thrill, like a wink from a patron saint, maybe? Cuz everyone knows what that feels like, right? Shiny's a good word for it. =)

Keep on keepin on~
