Dr. Horrible's Master Plan

July 24, 2008
So I missed the freebie version of Dr. Horrible because I didn't know it was a Joss Whedon production. I have been a Joss fan since Firefly/Serenity. Still can't get into Buffy and Angel, but I'll forgive him that :)

And I so wish I was going to Comic-Con!!!! Joss and Scott Sigler are going to be there this year.

Anyways, back to Dr. Horrible. The one thing that is going to convince me to start using iTunes. *sigh*


Dear Friends,

At last the time has come to reveal to you our Master Plan. BEWARE! Those with weak hearts should log off lest they be terrified by the twisted genius of our schemes! Also pregnant women and the elderly should consider reading only certain sentences. Do not mix with other blogs. Do not operate heavy machinery while reading this blog. You must be this tall to read. ‘Kay?

It is time for us to change the face of Show Business as we know it. You know the old adage, “It’s Show Business – not Show Friends”? Well now it’s Show Friends. We did that. To Show Business. To show Show Business we mean business. (Also, there are now other businesses like it.)


"Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog" will be streamed, LIVE (that part’s not true), FREE (sadly, that part is) right on Drhorrible.com, in mid-July. Specifically:

ACT ONE (Wheee!) will go up Tuesday July 15th.

ACT TWO (OMG!) will go up Thursday July 17th.

ACT THREE (Denouement!) will go up Saturday July 19th.

All acts will stay up until midnight Sunday July 20th. Then they will vanish into the night, like a phantom (but not THE Phantom – that’s still playing. Like, everywhere.)

And now to answers a few Frequently (soon to be) Asked Questions:

1) Why, Joss? Why? Why now, why free, why us?

Once upon a time, all the writers in the forest got very mad with the Forest Kings and declared a work-stoppage. The forest creatures were all sad; the mushrooms did not dance, the elderberries gave no juice for the festival wines, and the Teamsters were kinda pissed. (They were very polite about it, though.) During this work-stoppage, many writers tried to form partnerships for outside funding to create new work that circumvented the Forest King system.

Frustrated with the lack of movement on that front, I finally decided to do something very ambitious, very exciting, very mid-life-crisisy. Aided only by everyone I had worked with, was related to or had ever met, I single-handedly created this unique little epic. A supervillain musical, of which, as we all know, there are far too few.

The idea was to make it on the fly, on the cheap – but to make it. To turn out a really thrilling, professionalish piece of entertainment specifically for the internet. To show how much could be done with very little. To show the world there is another way. To give the public (and in particular you guys) something for all your support and patience. And to make a lot of silly jokes. Actually, that sentence probably should have come first.

2) What happens when it goes away? Does it go to a happy farm for always like Fluffy did when mommy was crying and the neighbor kept washing his fender?

No, Dr horrible will live on. We intend to make it available for download soon after it’s published. This would be for a nominal fee, which we’re hoping people will embrace instead of getting all piratey. We have big dreams, people, and one of them is paying our crew.

And somewhat later, we will put the complete short epic out on DVD – with the finest and bravest extras in all the land. We’ll go into greater detail about that at Comiccon, but we’re changing the face of Show Friendliness a second time with that crazy DVD.

Thank you plb. Still working on that bottle I got a few months ago, but on nights like this, it comes in SO handy. I can sleep fairly peacefully and not wake up groggy. Which is a good thing. Work and all.

One of these days I will get back to proper blogging without all of the photos getting in the way. I used to have witty things to say, right?

In the meantime, read my twitter stream over there to the left. Micro-blogging at it's ... at my best.

the best pit stop ever

2 Weeks Notice: Not as cute as the movie

yeah, I got notice. This is kind of how I felt even though I was expecting it.

one reason why i hate coming to work

I can't be productive eve when i want to be. that pic says "the security log on this sytem is full. only administrators can log on to fix the problem".

I now have at minimum a 10 minute hold time for the IT help desk. at least it's nice classical music.

Annette's Horoscope For July 12, 2008

July 12, 2008
You'll probably encounter some thorny problems in the career domain; but you'll rapidly recover your good judgment and your sharpness of mind. Don't overrate your strength: rest will prove necessary; too great fatigue can provoke backaches and heart weaknesses. Put a little distance between you and your family-in-law if you want to preserve your conjugal understanding; don't leave it any possibility to interfere with your private life, otherwise you'll have to cope with an awkward situation.

this is me feeling better

this is the best i've felt all week. can you imagine?

apparently the idea of me being a "good girl" gives some of my friends pause and makes them choke on whatever they happen to be drinking.

this is a picture of a good girl

mom, are we there yet?

we have been looking at the parking lot for the last HOUR and A HALF! but we are almost to the gate. pay our arm, then hunt for a parking spot. i hate being social sometimes. i think both zoe and i would rather be at the Long Beach dog beach. Lord knows i'd rather be cleaning house and doing laundry than sitting in traffic.

ask me no questions I'll tell you no lies

Things that make you go hmmmm

I wish these were original thoughts of my own:
  • Never take life seriously. Nobody gets out alive anyway.
  • Life is sexually transmitted.
  • Health is merely the slowest possible rate at which one can die.
  • Men have two emotions: Hungry and Horny. If you see him without an erection make him a sandwich.
  • Give a person a fish and you feed them for a day; teach a person to use the Internet and they won't bother you for weeks.
  • Some people are like Slinkies... not really good for anything, but you still can't help but smile when you see one tumble down the stairs...
  • Whenever I feel blue, I start breathing again.
  • All of us could take a lesson from the weather. It pays no attention to criticism.
  • Why does a slight tax increase cost you two hundred dollars and a substantial tax cut saves you thirty cents?
