Happy Friday the 13th, all! Hoping everyone is having a wonderful day, despite the creepifying superstitions of this threatening combination of day and number.

-♠- Joss Is A "Goner": Joss talks to Empire about 'Goners'. Nothing too revealing about his new project, but here's what he has to say: "I'm keeping it all pretty close to my chest at the moment," Whedon told Empire. "I'm something of a blabbermouth. What I will say is that it ventures more into the horrific than I normally tend to. I love horror movies but I looked back on Buffy and I was like 'Oh, we forgot to make it scary.' It was occasionally scary but I got so wrapped up in the emotions and people and things that I missed the horror aspect. Goners comes back to that a little bit." Remember how Serenity was darker than the series (as it was first intended to be)? Well, Joss had said in a previous interview about his new movie that it'll be even darker, horror and all. Yay!

-♠- Welcome to Josscentricality!: Josscentricality Serenity DVD competition. The new podcast website, Josscentricality, are giving listeners a chance to win an autographed copy of Serenity poster by Joss Whedon himself, to celebrate the release of the DVD! All one has to do is write your own deleted scene for Serenity, and it shall be judged upon creativity and originality, and must be kept within the context of the movie/series. It's open for all Australians. So Aussie friends, get to work if you want to win the grand prize!

-♠- Just Too Damn Pretty: Jewel Staite and Clare Kramer to attend Sydney convention. Jossverse actresses Jewel Staite (Kaylee) and Clare Kramer (Glory) are to be attending the Sydney convention on May 6th and 7th, with Clare only appearing on Sunday.

-♠- "Holy Testicle Tuesday": Exclusive SLITHER pictures from Nathan Fillion's new sci-fi/comedy/horror. Although the first picture is rather unsettling. But Nathan looks cute in his little uniform. Surely I am to see Slither, with the creepifyingness to it all.

-♠- Recognition Of Excellence: In other words, Katie Leung gets nominated for Asian Excellence Award. Totally shiny news, because Katie definitely deserves the recognition for her lovely performance in GoF as Cho Chang. From the comments left on the TLC, some are upset that Miss Leung gets nominated for only being in the film in few scenes and spoke only a few lines, which I believe to be unfairly judged. Katie did a phenomenal job in portraying the character --- not to mention she's completely adorable! --- and plus, she was a new addition to the cast. I cannot wait for her returning to OotP, which is to be filming soon I believe.

-♠- "OMG, I Killed Harry Potter!": It's been made official: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire to be released on March 7th. Seems a bit early, though one shouldn't be complaining. Filming for OotP begins the month I believe, if not already started. Also, there are to be three DVDs released: the Collector's Set which are the first four films, GoF Double-Disc Edition, and the Single-Disc Edition.

Wow. I didn't know anything about "Goners"! Thanks so much for the heads up. Of course, now I'm all excited and there won't be any news forever. *eye roll* But, YAY for the mere possibly of a Joss horror movie!
