And this man (hmm…sounded kind of strange referring to myself as “man” rather than “guy” or “dude”) has got to own the Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog DVD, complete with singing commentary and other various and sundry extras (I think the San Diego Comic Con panel is included, as well–you know, the one where Felicia Day gets caught Twittering under the table):
Anyways…Dr. Horrible was way more awesome than most of the movies that came out this year (The Dark Knight? Shit, Horrible totally owned Knight!). That’s why I jumped as soon as I got word that it was up on Amazon. It gets released on December 19, just in time for the holiday season. Go on, you can pre-order it here.
Earlier this week, the soundtrack to Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog was made available on iTunes.
For less than ten bucks, you can relive the unadulterated awesome of Joss Whedon’s epic, web-musical. If you’d like, you can even mosey over to the Dr. Horrible website and take a gander at the liner notes and lyrics.
Personally, I can not get enough of “Bad Horse Chorus”; in fact, I think I’m going to find three guys and hire them to dress up as cowboys and deliver all of my missives in verse. But, let’s be honest, each song pretty much hits the ball out of the park, from Neil Patrick Harris’ lovelorn stalker anthem “My Freeze Ray” to Nathan Fillion’s narcissistic “A Man’s Gotta Do” or “Everyone’s a Hero” (you can almost hear him swagger, I swear). And, although Felicia Day breaks your heart with “Caring Hands” and “Penny’s Song”, I think “My Eyes” (her duet with NPH) is her real shining moment.
This should keep me happy until the DVD–with singing commentary!–is released.
Yes, my friends, there is more newsy goodness about Joss Whedon’s upcoming musical epic web-stravaganza, Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog.
First…an official website is now up, where you can watch the teaser trailer and sign-up to receive updates via e-mail.
B…or, second…the Whedon One himself has posted a bunch of information about the series here. In true Joss fashion, he tells us why he decided to make Dr. Horrible, when each of its three acts will be available online–July 15th, July 17th and July 19th–and mentions the awesome, extras-packed DVD that will eventually be released. Oh, and there’s some stuff about dancing mushrooms and Teamsters.
Third…or, um, C…Joss asks everyone to spread the word about DHSAB (did I just create its official fan-cronym??), so that is what I am doing. And, I ask that you all do the same.
