One of the things I hate most about being a nerd, besides being socially awkward among females, is dealing with the naive-ness of other nerds. A photo. An off handed comment or any other bit of loose information and good lord do nerds come up with some ridiculous speculations and theories. Which then, of course trickles down the nerd intelligence scale and we have lower species of nerds telling other nerds news that isn’t true. It’s a vicious, eye twitching cycle that most stop. Honestly, it’s my job as a blogger to report rumors as there may be a bit of truth to them But, y’all would save me a lot of work if you just calmed the hell down and contained yourselves.
What am I getting at? Well, Nathan Fillion tweeted a photo yesterday that tickled the collective taint of the nerd world. It showed Joss Whedon, Adam Baldwin, Alan Tudyk, and himself posed in what appears to be a forest. Does it mean a new Firefly project (*gasps)? A precursor to the next installment of Dr. Horrible? Or could they be filming cameos in Whedon’s ‘The Cabin in the woods‘? These are the questions Whedon fans have been posing. Honestly nerds? I expected more from you than this. (*takes a deep breath) Fillion is under contract with ABC, and isn’t likely to have any projects cooking with another network. Whedon is re-working Marvel’s film adaptation of The Avengers script and will be in the director chair soon. Tudyk is filming a bit part in Transformers 3. Not to mention his character in Firefly is dead. And, Adam Baldwin? Well, he’s just busy being Adam Baldwin. Point is the ex-serenity crew are all too caught up in other things to be doing anything together big or small screen related. What were they doing then? I know it’s hard to beileve, but what we have here is four guys hanging out at a Fillion hosted party. Ex Buffy and Angel star Juliet Landau (Drusilla) confirmed this with the following tweet: “Just left party! Was so fun to hang out with @NathanFillion, Joss, Kai, Adam, Eliza and a whole bunch of new folks”. So nerds, there you have it. Four friends hanging out. It happens.
Now, will someone please tell me what the hell is going on with Nathan Fillions crotch? Is that a sparkler or did his penis just create a new galaxy?
