Cryptoquote Spoiler – 11/14/14

Equality is not a concept.  It’s not something we should be striving for.  It’s a necessity.  Equality is like gravity.”   —   Joss Whedon

(This quote, along with the author’s name, uses all but two letters of the alphabet . . . X and Z.  Pretty awesome!  The quote itself sounds like something a stoner would say.  But, I agree with its intentions.)   —   YUR

(This sounds very noble, but if you read about his impressive pedigree and a few of his brothers, then it kind of rings as more politically correct than sincere.  Unless he’s had some kind of falling out with his family, or maybe, through his work, he’s built some incredible friendships, that feel even closer than his biological family.  As it turns out though, I’m a big fan of the guy.  I just didn’t realize it.  He created a television show called Firefly, that briefly ran on Fox, that I thought was brilliant!  It only failed because Americans are basically idiots.  Oh!  Not the readers of Unclerave’s Wordy Weblog, of course.  No, no, no.  I meant the other idiots.  Fortunately, for me, he was able to write and direct the movie Serenity, which was a kind of continuation of the television series.  The film and short-lived TV series both starred Nathan Fillion, who many of you may know better from the show Castle.  A decent show.  I’d say I’m a fan, but it’s pretty boring compared to Firefly.  Anyway, if you get a chance, you should check this Joss Whedon dude out.  He’s been involved in, and continues to be involved in, a lot of great things, like comic books, and lots of well known television shows and movies.  And now he’s probably mega-rich, because he both screen-wrote and directed Marvel’s The Avengers, which has earned over $611 Million, so far!  Way cool.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Oh!  And, how friggin’ gorgeous is Morena Baccarin!?!?  Just sayin’.   —   YUR
