Joss Whedon

So there has been a little bit of a buzz on teh intarweebs about Joss Whedon's latest endeavor, Dr. Horrible. Basically it really hits on one of my personal favorite songs by Jonathan Coulton called Skullcrusher Mountain. What happens when a super genius villian is in love? Well I can say it is terribly interesting. You should definitely check out the video for Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog. Seriously. First off it stars Neil Patrick Harris, Nathan Fillion, and Felicia Day. Second, the music is good. Third, it is definitely bite sized at under 14 minutes per act (so far as Act III hasn't gone up yet).

I watched some of Mr. Whedon's early TV shows, but I didn't recognize genius until Firefly. But this really is a wonderful work and quite enjoyable.

You can support Joss and Dr. Horrible by coughing up $1.99 for each episode (total of three) on iTunes.

iTunes? iTunes?

I will continue to avoid such a service. However Dr. Horrible will be available on environment killing disc shortly. It will likely find a home in my collection.

Also if you want to see some more entertaining videos, do a search for The Guild in google. It will return some MMORPG humor as done by Felicia Day.

Yeah, I'm shooting for the DVD too. I would have watched it online if I'd known about it when it was free.

There seems to be a $3.99 option for the "season" now.

$3.99! Come on! It's using iTunes, it's not the same as killing a person. Sometimes it's OK to relax your principles just a little bit to watch something fun a little sooner.

Or why not try Hulu?

Interesting. The original deal was that it would be pulled from Hulu after it's first weekend and become an iTunes exclusive for a while (then go to DVD).

But you're right, I have it playing for free on another tab even as I type this.

Wonder what happened. Did Joss change his mind? Is Hulu cheating?

S**t!

I meant its, not it's.

I hate that error.
