i do enjoy a good musical

just not High School Musical.  Though i’ve never seen it, and never plan on it…(for I may like it, and what then?)

Anyways, thats besides the point.  Yesterday, I was informed of a made for the internet musical blog called Dr. Horrible.  Its a Joss Whedon thang, and seeing as though I do love Buffy, and most things Joss, I was intrigued.  THEN, i found out it starred Neil Patrick Harris…and I am pretty much in love with everything he does, so I figured I’d check it out.  THEN, i found out it was being taken offline last night, and i had mere hours to watch it.

So I did.

Whedon is the creator of the TV shows “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “Angel” and “Firefly.” “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog,” is a musical superhero spoof starring Neil Patrick Harris and Nathan Fillion. It was freely available streaming online through July 20, and will be available for download and on DVD.  Its only $3.99 for all three episodes.  Buy it.

It was great, and musical, and ridiculous, and starred some of his old favorites.  And now you can buy it on iTunes.  Good thing I got in early.  Cuz im cheap.  I would recommend it though, and I apologize I didnt inform you sooner.  I just didnt know.  If you are a fan of the Buffy musical episode, “Once More With Feeling,” you will find it especially enjoyable.  The Whedon brothers have a knack for writing lyrics, harmonizing and creating something worth seeing.  Maybe they will start showing this in theatres for a sing-along as well…especially since they pulled the Buffy showings.

tags matter

Im starting to understand this Web 2.0 stuff a little bit better.  You would think since I have a Facebook, Yelp, Twitter, Flickr, Bebo (though im never on it), GoodReads, Myspace, etc. acct, it would all be gravy to me.  Sometimes I dont get it, but I do like to be dialed in.  People who are never on the internet, don’t get me.  What meme are you talking about?  What YouTube video?  Sorry I dont work in front of a computer…they say.  (I never look at this stuff at work mind you, only at home)  Im starting to realize that everyone (with the exception of a select few) has to be connected at all times, and have access to everything and everything at their fingertips.

Which brings me to the topic of tags.  Tags are key in order for people to find what you want them to find.  I tagged some pictures in flickr with Seder.  A woman who was a moderator for a forum about Passover found my tagged Passover pictures and invited me to be in the group called ‘Passover: why is this group different? why four cups? why matzo?’. I accepted graciously.  I had some pictures I tagged ‘Neon’ and ‘Austin’.  I have since been added to the ‘Neon Texas‘ group.  What kills me is what people are searching for.  I uploaded my pictures from Austin the other day.  Most have 1-5 views.  Im not in pools, and I dont have a ton of friends on Flickr that arent already my friends in real life.  However one picture in particular, has 29 views already.  Way more than any of the others.  Its funny to me.
