Okay, I was in a haze of travel, work, and layoffs around the time this (the review mentioned in a sec) was written, so excuse if this is a repeat for any of you.

Some of you Know (as in SAVOIR, baby!) (and I'm informing the rest of you shut-ins!) that Joss Whedon (O Creator de Firefly, El Jefe, etc) had a little project called Dr Horrible's Sing-Along Blog. Well, it's now available on DVD (at Amazon.com) fo like, $10.50. SHEESH! BUY! FOR THE WIN, already!

anyway, I have been singing (on loop.) the Commentary! the Musical (an optional commentary track on the DVD...and, um, another musical)...
Epic win-ness. Srsly. (!!!!!!!)

So, saw this Celebrity Blog thingie by Joss which is a review of the DVD. OMFG.

The extras (Eternal life, Europe, Bees) were mostly exciting.  There is a whole second musical, called "Commentary!", which harkens back to the days of Radio and of writing things really poorly.  I can't recommend it enough.  (That should read "I can't recommend it.  Enough!"  Sorry.)  Seriousfully, it's not so much a commentary as chance for the cast and writers to make fun of each other in every musical style possible.  I give it forty eight billion stars.

Oh, and the "every musical style possible" mention? Um, yeah. Not. Kidding. His brother Zack "I'm the youngest!" Whedon RAPS.
Neil Patrick Harris attempts to rap (though, you know, not that hard. 'cause I believe he could do that. I mean, he was doing surgery before he could drive. How hard could it be to rap? **SNORFLE** **Shoulda ganked that "wow sarcasm" icon!)

You know, I haven't heard anybody mention receiving the Eternal Life, controling interest in Europe, or Bees . . . I'm beginning to think Joss was kidding!

Some day, Ninja Ropes will be not stuck in my head. But today is not that day.

My bf has yet to officially hear that song, but he caught a snippet here and there last weekend and woefully informed me, "I've got 'Ninja Ropes' stuck in my head. And I don't even *know* the song!"

AND REMEMBER, THE DVD IS REGION-FREEEEE!

I cannot put into words how awesome Commentary!The Musical is, so I won't even try. I'll just say:

I agreeeeee!, I'm the youngest!, and Sure!

Oh, and:

NPH: Maybe it's time we heard from the actors.
NF: I'm an actor. Maybe I should go first?
NPH: No, I was referring to the good actors.
NF: Neil, why don't you step back?
NPH: You know what? Why don't you step UP?

BWAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAA!!!

Yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaah.
BRILLIANCE!

and my all-time-at-least-on-reapeat/shuffle-with-my-other-all-time FAVORITE quote of this 5 seconds is:

Neil: An internet musical is a wacky idea that's zany. Where did it come from?
Joss: it came from pain.
(Jed?): Uuuuh, let's not talk to Joss. He's sad and confusing.

Actually, it came from solidarity. Does anyone remember the writer's srike of last year?

Uh...what do the writers do?
