JOSS WHEDON is NYLON's Master Now!

If you like fashion (albeit mostly pretentious coastal street style) & Joss Whedon you simply must pick up the September 2008 issue of Nylon-themed quite appropriately "The TV Issue"

I haven't seen this many Whedon references since the contentious New Classics issue of EW earlier this summer.

The standout feature for this issue has to be the 8-PAGE Eliza Dushku photoshoot (p.200) most uncreatively entitled "Welcome to the Dollhouse". Somebody should really be giving Heather Matarazzo royalties for this.

But that's not where the Whedonness ends-
There's also a small feature on two other stars from DOLLHOUSE -Enver Gjokaj & Dichen Lachman on p.193 (Though I wouldn't have minded some Tahmoh Penikett love.)

Then there's the whole page dedicated to why BUFFY is the Greatest Show on Earth on p. 164.
(Which I completely agree with. )

Oh and it doesn't end there!
There's also a FIREFLY inspired fashion spread on p.134.
Style Note: I actually don't agree with the dresses they picked since they decided to focus on River's folksy dress shit that always rubbed me of Amy Grant circa "House of Love". But I'm not against pairing motorcycle boots with floaty dresses. That oddly works.

Oh and did I mention that there's an article on p.161 on the ascending popularity of direct to web programming that gives well deserved props to Joss & Co. for the "silly & funny" Dr.Horrible's Sing-A-Long Blog.

Add to all that all the nods to Whedon-Friendlies:
Q&A with Matt Colonna (Editor on Dexter) p.160
Q&A Amanda Friedland (Costume Designer for Terminator:TSCC ) p.158
Interview with the ridiculously funny Mindy Kaling from The Office p.156
Why Battlestar Galactica is the Greatest Show on Earth p.165 *Warning: Season 4 Spoiler *
Why LOST is the Greatest Show on Earth p.163
Q&A with Ken Leung & Rebecca Mader from LOST .185

So in total Joss gets Name-Checked 4 Times!
p.161, p.164, p.193, p.200

In addition to these other shout outs-
p.68 (Buffy), p.133 (Firefly), p.134 (Firefly & Buffy & Sarah Michelle Gellar), p.171 (Buffy)

Now that is some serious Joss-love.

Haha - royalties to Heather.
I am still the bigger nerd - my first thought was, "Ibsen should really get royalties". Lit nerds trump all lol.
