Here’s a little more non SL related goodness for ya. Sometimes it’s fun to partake in the loliness of the RL too….errrrr in my case today barely RL and still on my computer. But funny all the same! I’m hoping that there are some Whedonites out there besides me. Everything Joss Whedon has touched has turned to awesome as far as I’m concerned. If you aren’t familiar with Sir Whedon, he is the creator of such gems as Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly, Angel and coming this fall to Fox, Dollhouse. Ya…. I’m a geek… this shouldn’t be news.
Well this summer more awesomeness was released on the Internet Called Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog. The idea came about during the writers strike when nothing new could be made for television, but alas, the interwebz always creates a fantabulous loophole. And thus… Dr. Horrible started practicing his evil laugh for us all to enjoy. The story is about super heros and villans in modern times with that classic Whedon sarcastic juiciness that keeps you on your toes. Neal Patrick Harris stars as Dr. Horrible who is in love with a girl he has never talked to but see’s all the time at the laundry mat. Nathan Fillion, of Firefly fame, plays the handsome, hair-blowing-in-the-breeze asshole, Captain Hammer… Horrible’s arch nemesis (due to several beatings, a car thrown at his head, and love-of-his-life snatching). Oh yea…. did I mention this is a SING-ALONG!!! Oh, I did? Well whatever, the point is you need to see this! It’s only available on iTunes now, but for like 3.99, it’s more than worth it. There are only 3 acts so far but here’s hoping for more horribleness in the future! *crosses fingers*
Here is a link to the YouTube trailer to get an idea for yourself whether or not you want to buy them, though I can’t imagine why you wouldn’t. My favorite line goes something like this: Captain Hammer meets the Dr.’s real life persona at the laundry mat, figures out he has a crush on Penny (“the girl”) and says to him: “See, Penny’s givin it up, she’s givin it up haaard. Because these *puts up fists* are not the hammer…*walks away, then comes back* The hammer is my penis”. Singing! Evil! Wittiness! Hammer in the pants guy! What other reasons do you need?
