All hands to the helm: Mr Sulu is up for auction

Kids Need to Read have another great auction
How's about that, then, boys and girls? An autographed, full-color 8×10 photo of actor George Takei as he appeared in the film Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country up for auction by Kids Need to Read. The auction is open now on ebay and runs until 28th March so check it out and get bidding. Kids Need to Read was set up by author of The Softwire series, PJ Haarsma, and actor Nathan Fillion as a children's literacy program and needs relies on income from these auctions. New items are added each week so it's really worth checking back often. Who knows, Cap'n Tightpants might auction some more of his goodies again soon.

Doctor Horrible's Sing-Along Blog's brand new fansite
Not before time, a spanky new fansite has been set up for Doctor Horrible's Sing-Along Blog . It is in the early stages of development at the moment but promises to be the hub for some pretty frantic fan-type shenanigans. Speaking of which, no word yet on where/when The Doctor (Horrible, not Who) will make his first appearance, but it is the subject of intense interest. As soon as Joss lets anyone know....

Buffy Reunion Paley roundup
The bone-picking continues after the Buffy Reunion but nothing else ground-breaking has been revealed. There's lots of video and pictures around and I've even seen a site that claims to have an audio of the evening. Some of the reports have been a little unkind about certain members of the panel but I think that is to miss the point. One small point in time like that could never give everyone what they wanted and we should be happy it happened at all.

It's over for Summer...
Apparently Summer Glau has a new movie and won't be able to attend the Starfury Con in London in April. That's bad news for fans but great news for her. There is still a good lineup for the Con, though, and it promises to be a great event.

Joss' Journal Jan 11 08
Ok, I don't get that much time to look at stuff on the interweb. And in the past that has cost me dear. I am trying to change (as will soon be revealed), but I just don't spend time surfing. But I know a man who does and he has sent me this amazing video (a 'Mash'?) of Serenifly and Wicked. So good I had to blog. Makes me get that wistful look in my eye again...Still, Mr Fillion is gainfully employed at the moment (yuk, yuk!) so...

And Minion #2 surprised me today by asking if I called them 'scones' (rhyming with 'cones') or 'scones' (rhyming with onze). I really do not know what goes through their heads sometimes....

Woody's Roundup
Buffy Between the Lines Season 2 is still looking for crew members; Nathan Fillion's birthday is on 27th March and you can send him an e-birthday card; BattleStar Galactica Season 3 boxset is being consumed at a great rate in time for the final season - and it really rocks!
