A PhD in Horribleness

Is it possible that there's someone who hasn't heard of Dr. Horrible's Sing-along Blog (you've got all weekend to watch it free)? I can't get the music out of my head.

Of course, I've been in europe all week and new mexico 2 weeks before that, so my connection to popular culture is rather tenuous.

Was wondering what joss was up to...

(mild spoilers!)

I just watched the last act and wow I didn't see that coming!

It's pretty funny, and yeah the songs are completely infectious. I never thought Doogie...I mean Neil Patrick Harris can sing!

*raises hand also*

i haven't listened/watched (yet), but after reading your post I now have that They Might Be Giants song stuck in my head.

But at any rate... Joss!

Doug, Tim - What the deuce?! You guys need new priorities. Work, family, how could those even compare to singing Doogie? ;)

Anyway, you could catch up on iTunes, but it may be cheaper to wait for the DVD and Netflix it. I might buy the DVD. I hear they're going to try to make it region zero, and they conscientiously streamed it worldwide; that's the kind of thing I'd like to support.

On a vaguely related topic, when are they (the music companies) going to let Apple sell non-DRM-ed music? I buy from Amazon now, but I miss the ease of buying from the iTunes music store.

I managed to get enough wireless to watch the first one, and then bought them on iTunes. Not bad, and I've been waiting for community supported entertainment to take off, but I'm worried the production values are too high on this to make a big difference.

On a related note, Doogie Howser MD on hulu!
