Things We Saw Today: Women of the Whedonverse T-Shirt


You can buy the t-shirt, by illustrator Tom Trager, at RedBubble. (via Fashionably Geek)

  • Via The Frisky, a priest in a northern village in Italy has given women some helpful advice on how to avoid domestic violence: Clean your house. Take care of the babies. Make home-cooked meals. I’m sorry, did I say helpful? I meant awful. Here’s a real helpful tip on stopping domestic violence: Don’t beat your spouses or significant others.
  • Amazon no longer lets authors review books in the same genre as the one they write due to a possible “conflict of interest.” Per The Telegraph, many of the authors who have had their reviews deleted since the rule change are a bit unhappy.

  • A TorrentFreak study has found that employees at major movie studios often use their work computers to illegally download other studios’ movies. Well, naturally. You don’t want to pay for your competition’s wares! (via The Daily Dot)
  • The cast of Wes Anderson‘s The Grand Budapest Hotel will include… deep breath… Ralph Fiennes, Tilda Swinton, Jeff Goldblum, Willem Dafoe, F. Murray Abraham, Jude Law, Adrien Brody, Edward Norton, Harvey Keitel, Jason Schwartzman, Bill Murray, Saoirse Ronan, Mathieu Amalric, and maybe Owen Wilson. That cast list is so beautiful I think I might cry. (via: MTV)

    As much as I want to like the shirt image it consistently irks me how the Serenity poster shot of River is used as emblematic of her character; in my mind, the point of River Tam is not that she is a Small Girl What Fights Good.

    I Love that Tony Stark “Happy Holidays Card!” It Fits so Perfectly for the Winter Theme and happens to be in the Scene where he gets Stranded from Iron Man Suit Crash Landing, in the Trailer, right?

    Following, the woman, in Iowa, who got fired for being “too pretty,” apparently James Knight, the “Dentist” took Advice from his ‘Pastor,’ to fire her.

    “YEAH. The Church really seems to know how to solve Infidelity & Domestic Violence.”

    Church people Don’t believe in Divorce, they Can’t possibly understand Compatibility, Chemistry, & Healthy Dynamics between Couples. People like Church people are also on the Bottom on my List on who to Turn to for Advice on how to ‘Respect Women.’

    I’m sure I’m being a bad geek for asking this, but who’s the woman in the middle, the one in the red, blue, and black? And, um, the one to her left, in the black tank top, with the gun? I assume they’re from either Angel and/or Dollhouse, since those are the shows I’m not very familiar with.

    The lady in the spiderman-esque suit is Illyria (Amy Acker), from Angel. But I’m a bit confused about the woman in black with the gun – I assume it’s Echo, from Dollhouse? I really had to think twice about it.

    I was looking at that whedonverse t-shirt and thinking to myself.. hmm… where’s Kaylee?

  • Anonymous

    And Inara. I almost thought it was one character per series until I noticed Zoe and River are both on there.

  • Anonymous

    I figured it was Echo immediately, but I seem to have more of a rabid love of that show than most people who have seen it.

    Uuuuggghhh, RIver. I finally pinned down the source of my distaste for the character, though. Many years spent in an MMO on the Roleplay server led to being witness to many, many, many, many, many “browncoat” discussions and chatter about how awesome RIver was, which led to about 937 River-esque clones running around in EQ2.

  • Skullcrusher Maggie

    My guess? All the women featured have well-known reputations in their various worlds as badass. While they can take care of themselves, Kaylee and Inara do not. Also, they probably only had room for so many characters on the shirt, and it didn’t seem quite fair to use half the cast of Firefly and not all the cool chicks from his other stuff. (I’ve probably put too much thought into this.)
