National Geek Day

Time magazine has a joint interview with two definite Geek Gods, Neil Gaiman and Joss Whedon. With both Serenity and Mirrormask opening in some movie theaters this weekend, and with Neil's latest book Anansi Boys just out, it's a good time.

Time also has one of those fairly regular articles about how Geeks Rule. Nothing terribly new, where we've had arguably genre concepts win both Emmys and Oscars over the past couple of years, as well as the success of many books (Harry Potter) as well.

(Amusingly, they've got Joss's last name wrong in the title of the article... but hey, it's not an easy one to spell right.)

It looks like it'll be two weeks until Mirrormask opens at the Lagoon here in Minneapolis. So at least there isn't sort of massive friday night "what do I see first" conflict here....

Serenity opens this weekend, and while I saw a preview of it a couple of months ago, I'm planning on seeing it again.
