The @lilapearl Joss Whedon piece is a tremendous piece of cultural journalism that allows a man to damn himself, yes, but also, like, I’m jealous of a lot of the writing in it. The last few paragraphs, especially. Worth reading on a pure craft level. vulture.com/article/joss-whe…

Just starting it but, damn, as a fellow redhead this guy knows exactly what to say to make me forget what he's really like. "“The sun is my enemy,” he said"

Then loses my empathy a few paragraphs later with this Anglophile nonsense. “I’m going to run to the loo,” he said

Reading this article was like bingeing an entire season of Bojack Horseman, only without the laughs.

This fu*king depresses me. I’m a huge fan of a lot of his work. I can see the creative genius, mired in personal failures. The mistakes he’s made, those he’s recognised and those that he can’t see. Still think he’s a fantastic writer, just needs to recognise the flaws in himself

It really bothers me that after all this time he's had to reflect, what Joss Whedon came away from it all with was "I think I’m one of the nicer showrunners that’s ever been" For god's sake, all he had to do was say sorry
