Out of the Blue

did you ever see the buffy the vampire slayer creator's pet project during the writer's strike...dr horrible's sing along blog, starring neil patrick harris? http://www.hulu.com/watch/28343/dr-horribles-sing-along-blog enjoyable

Dear Doc,

I did see it. I'm the lone infidel who liked it right up until the singing started. I like musicals OK, but this stuff didn't work for me. Neither did the much-ballyhooed Buffy episode (except for the joke where the scene abruptly ends as the singing gay lovers fall onto the bed; that's inventive). I love me some Neil Patrick going way back to Starship Troopers, the first glimpse we had that this guy might be winking at us all along.

There are rumblings of an on-going comic about Dr. Horrible and The Hammer, and that could be fun.

In other news, the producer of an upcoming play at Hendersonville Little Theatre asked me via Facebook to audition for her show. The audition is tonight, and I can't do it. It's flattering to be asked, though. I'm too bedraggled from the Christmas show, and I don't see me doing another show until summer at best.

The WWE is coming back to Asheville next month, and Your Sister actually asked about tickets. She wants to go. WHAT HAVE I DONE?!

Picture of the Day
I hope you made plans to attend the endocrine lecture by Dr. Sweetums.
