Joss Whedon 6.23.13 Though of the Day


“Passion, it lies in all of us.”

“I am a leaf on the wind. Watch how I soar.”

Joseph Hill “Joss” Whedon was born on this day in New York, New York, USA in 1964. He is 49 years old.

He is the middle son of  Tom and Lee  Whedon. He  has two older brothers, Sam and Matthew, and two younger  brothers , Jed and Zach. Joss, Jed and Zach  followed  their father and grandfather (John) and became screenwriters.   Joss went to Riverdale Country School before attending Winchester College and graduating from Wesleyan University in 1987.

In less than a decade Whedon had written and sold his first major network show, Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Angel, a spin off followed in 1999.

The delightful, sarcastic and original space western, Firefly, was next. the Fox network cancelled the show  before the end of the first season, but fan support eventually resulted in the movie, Serenity.

He co wrote Dr. Horrible’s Sing-a-long Blog during the writer’s strike of 2007/2008. He self financed the project and even co wrote the music with his brother Jed.

His current project is a modernized version of Much Ado About Nothing.

Alas we are cable limited for the next couple of days. I’ve had to do this on my iPad, and I’ve learned that is not the way to go.

About ritalovestowrite

Freelance writer and graphic designer in Northern Baltimore County. As a writer I enjoy both fiction and non fiction (travel and local interest stories.) Most recently my non fiction writing has been featured in Mason-Dixon ARRIVE Magazine. As a graphic designer I focus on cover designs and have done a number of designs for books and magazines. Recently I've entered the e-book cover field. I also enjoy working with community organizations and churches to bring their communications to a higher standard. As an advocate for the ARTS, one of my biggest passions is helping young people find a voice in all the performing arts. To that end it has been my honor to give one on one lessons to middle and high school students in graphic design and music. View all posts by ritalovestowrite
