Anybody who is anybody knows who Joss Whedon is by now. Whether you're a die-hard fan Firefly, or you grew up with Buffy the Vampire Slayer, or you just heard of him from Dr. Horrible's Singalong Blog, you should know that the man is an entertainment genius.
Not surprisingly, Mr. Whedon has a lot of fans in the ever-cool fiber-world, with homages to his characters being stitched up daily. He was recently interviewed on the Wired blog, where he took note of this trend as well:
Wired.com: To what do you attribute the far-flung coverage and buzz about Dr. Horrible, considering there's been little to no press for the series?
Whedon: Fact is, there's been some buzz, but it hasn't reached the places it would normally. Where's our write-up in Crocheting Monthly? (I did a very sexy shoot for that one.)
In fact, the editor of crochet blog, CrochetMe.com, is searching out contacts of the great man himself to conduct just such an interview! If you have any leads, please contact Kim Werker and read her post about the search here.
I'm on my own similar search, looking for ways to contact celebrities for permission to etch their pretty faces on my glassware. I'm looking for people such as Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement of the Flight of the Concords, Stephen Colbert, and anyone from Joss Whedon's projects. Any contact leads would be fantastically appreciated (and adequately rewarded)! Also, I'd love more suggestions of famous folks that you'd like to see on a lovely vase or drinkware!
