Captain Hammer, the hero of "Dr. Horrible's Sing-along Blog" is now in comic-form for all to see! (Sometimes you'll have to hover your mouse on the lower right corner of the "comic" to get to the button that says "next page" - just keep clicking it will move on -promise!).
Soon enough the webisodes will be posted and we'll be able to see and, dare I say it? Sing along, too!
Here's the details for those who care - and for those who don't - shame on you!
Creator Joss Whedon has announced the "air" dates for Doctor Horrible's Sing-Along Blog. The episodes will air on the official website drhorrible.com as follows:
- Part 1 - Tuesday July 15
- Part 2 - Thursday July 17
- Part 3 - Saturday July 19
These episodes will "air" online only until July 20.
Following that they will be made available for download at a "nominal fee" and in the near future available to buy on a very special DVD "with the finest and bravest extras in all the land".
Now it's time to spread the word far and wide to all the corners of the interweb. Grab some banners from the official site and post them everywhere you go - and be sure to cover those places people wouldn't normally hear about this.
This is your chance to play a part in changing the face of the entertainment industry forever.
Joss Whedon: "[Do] what you always do, peeps! What you're already doing. Spread the word. Rock some banners, widgets, diggs… let people know who wouldn't ordinarily know. It wouldn't hurt if this really was an event. Good for the business, good for the community –communitIES: Hollywood, internet, artists around the world, comic-book fans, musical fans (and even the rather vocal community of people who hate both but will still dig on this). Proving we can turn Dr Horrible into a viable economic proposition as well as an awesome goof will only inspire more people to lay themselves out in the same way. It's time for the dissemination of the artistic process. Create more for less. You are the ones that can make that happen."
How cool is that?!
Which is better than my mood yesterday afternoon when I found myself sitting next to the crotchety ol' muppets from the balcony of "The Muppet Show" and downwind from the person who decided that deoderant was really not on the agenda for the day. Or the week. Maybe the month. But I still enjoyed "Hancock" - even with my sweater pulled up to my eyeballs!
Today was spent doing important tasks like internet surfing and baking giant cupcakes. Yes. You read that right. Cupcakes of Giant Proportions. Some assembly required as you bake the tops separately from the bottoms but still, it was fun. Harry is never happier than when I'm baking. No, really. I could be standing in our bedroom with a duster in one hand and the vacuum in the other and his response would be "Oh. You went with 'cleaning', huh? Where're my cookies?"
Okay - it's getting late and I still have oodles to do (total lie - I'm going to www.x17online.com to see who is boinking who in Hollywood - cuz I'm that shallow) and I'm still a bit traumatized from my Wal-mart trip earlier in which we followed a lovely Jaguar up the hill with its WV hunting plate on the back and, no doubt, going in to cash some food stamps in on a scorpion-tainted watermelon. Yup - only in my town...
