Quickly:

1) Ha! RPing rocked last night. I so wish I could do a whole campaign with those guys.

2) I am falling in love with Jamie Bamber and Apollo. I've watched... 4 episodes of BSG? I NEED MORE.

3) Oh yeah, and Neil Patrick Harris, too. That photo is just amazing. (source) He's just so cute (and I love Nathan, but that's not new *g*).

4) Dr Horrible panel and Dollhouse panel FTW.

5) No words for how cute Tahmoh, Eliza and Joss are together. Heee!

A geeky post first:

Joss on the possibility for same-sex relationships in Dollhouse [slight spoilery]. Also another hint that Eliza is just one hell of a cool woman: "when [Eliza] was just explaining the kind of show she wanted to do, she said political, feminist, liberal and she said I’d like to deal with sexuality and I don’t just mean ‘be a little hottie.’"

A really cool history of how Dr Horrible came to be, with input from the writers and actors. It's a must-read, it's full of details and Joss-funny, and I love that Neil Patrick Harris has been a Joss fan. :D

Speaking of, that transcript of a Neil interview is really interesting, and I just love Neil's answer to how he got involved with Dr. Horrible. Joss is indeed supertastic. *g*

And with Comic-Con being so Joss-tastic this year, expect more geeky links to come after this weekend. :D


PS: For geeky fun, Dr Horrible's remote control.

Okay. OKAY. So maybe THIS is my last post from France. If Joss would stop being awesome (and didn't have so many cool things going on) I wouldn't have to look like an idiot!

So first, another really good interview about Dr Horrible. I'm surprised Joss says he'd cut Moist's "is that a new catchphrase?" I love that line! I think that that's what makes the "I hold a PhD in Horribleness" really funny.

Second, a really long post that Joss just made at Whedonesque, so you know that's just going to be all brilliance. It's about the fact that they're shooting a second first episode for Dollhouse and how it's nothing like Firefly WE SWEAR.

How much do I love the way this guy writes/answers interviews? He's just so funny with the smallest of things.

Oh, and I haven't watched it yet, but his interview on Best Week Ever is up here. Probably really cool too.

On that note, I'm gone now. Really.
greenie_breizh: (melancholy)
I should be in the shower so I can go to bed and get some sleep, but I stumbled across this transcription of an awesome Joss chat / interview about Dr Horrible and it's, as anything written by Joss is, hilarious and smart. And I like the point he makes about Penny as (not) feminist and also what he says about how he approaches death in his work.

I now have the songs of all three acts in mp3 form on my ipod and I haven't been listening to anything else. The songs from Act 3 are really growing on me. I can't wait for the CD to be out!

On this note, this should be my last post from France. As always I'm sad to go and at the same time happy to be heading away. This living abroad thing is going to make me have a split personality disorder.
greenie_breizh: (laughing spree)
Act 2 of Dr Horrible Sing-Along Blog is up.

And it is HYSTERICAL. I cannot say how many one-liners I loved in there, that was so worth getting up at 5am to be there for the launch. I laughed so, so hard. I am absolutely LOVING Neil Patrick Harris and his adorable twitching along with Nathan and his being a dick. This is just so, so great. I can't wait to be able to buy the episode on iTunes so I can rewatch it. :D :D :D
greenie_breizh: (current tv)
Dr Horrible icon! Makes me happy. :D I'm so staying up tonight to try and get part 2 before bed. Might just download from iTunes straight away if it works so I don't clutter the website with everyone else. :)

A really good LA Times article with an awesome Behind the scenes gallery.

Still on Dr Horrible and also on Dollhouse, a Joss Whedon interview at Monday's FOX event. Speaking of, there is also a cool Eliza Dushku interview from that event and how much do I love her? A whole lot. The "I've got skills" and wanting to be a chess master is just adorable. :D See for yourself (I don't even mind the heavy make-up too much for once.)



And now, off to pack...

Edit on Dr Horrible:

Now available for the whole world to see, and though I still think it would have been nice to anticipate this, thumbs-up to everyone who worked to fix the problem within half a day (and for giving tips to view it before that). Plus the fact that they left messages around the internet to try and explain makes all the difference. In the end, much of what makes this project so interesting is this responsiveness, the reality of the people behind the project.

And oh, Canada and your bilingual rules. I miss you. ^^

On whedonesque:
Dear... I want to say friends...

I Can't tell you what a thrill it was for me and Jed and Zack and Maurissa to gather round the comp-fire and await the launch of our musical... and find out it wasn't playing in many many places. And get slammed. And slammed. Yay team! Team of slamming!

The fact is, we're dealing with big companies that have moved more quickly on this venture than they've ever had to. We've always been clear about getting this out to everyone, but that just isn't as simple as we'd like. (At the last minute we found out about a Canadian restriction involving it having to be in French simultaneously...) We (well, mostly Jed) have worked to the point of delirium getting this out to you guys, and yeah, we're experiencing technical difficulties. Bear with us. We're (well, mostly Jed) trying to make this work for everyone as soon as we can. It's not thoughtlessness, or jingoism, corporate evil or scurvy. It's just new. We'll get you there.

For those of you who HAVE seen it, isn't it dreamy? Thank you for all your comments. They buoyed us much. Sadly, we really just phoned in the next two eps, so it's all downhill. Jestage!
And now, I fly! (Coach.) xoxo -j.

On the video itself, I can't wait to see the rest, and I have a nagging feeling the song will grow on me the more I listen to them. Neil Patrick Harris is so adorable. ^^

We knew there would be problems with Dr Horrible streaming for locations outside the U.S. So I'd really like to know why this wasn't addressed before the freaking first part went live.

Based on what was published on the show's Twitter I'm trying this but even if it works, it has put a serious dampener on the whole thing. I really expected better from Joss and his team.

Seems to be working in IE (not Firefox), going to go and drag my brother out of bed - international peeps, give it a go.

There is really no point to this point except that I'm connected from Gare Montparnasse (thanks to my uncle's Neuf account) and that's an extremely exciting fact to me!

Oh, geeks. I know.

While I'm posting, I might as well mention that the first story related to Dr Horrible's Sing-Along Blog has been published: it's an Dark Horse online comic introducing the world to Captain Hammer. Written by Zack Whedon. Expectedly, it's awesome. :D
greenie_breizh: (joss is boss)


Joss, in all his usual awesomeness and funny, just posted on whedonesque to lay out the master plan behind Dr Horrible's Sing-Along Blog! The main piece of info being:

"Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog" will be streamed, LIVE (that part’s not true), FREE (sadly, that part is) right on Drhorrible.com, in mid-July. Specifically:

ACT ONE (Wheee!) will go up Tuesday July 15th.

ACT TWO (OMG!) will go up Thursday July 17th.

ACT THREE (Denouement!) will go up Saturday July 19th.

All acts will stay up until midnight Sunday July 20th. Then they will vanish into the night, like a phantom (but not THE Phantom – that’s still playing. Like, everywhere.)


There are so many other bits of amazing in that post - I just love how Joss is taking leadership in that search for a new way to do media and entertainment. "Create more for less." Amen. Really. I really, really hope Dr Horribly does terrifyingly well and encourage others and help the industry reinvent itself. And that Joss doesn't ever, ever let go of that political energy he's got. He's a sublime storyteller as it is, and I think the activist in him is part of that, but it's what he manages outside his storytelling - and through his storytelling - that makes him a grand human being to me.

I will, of course, be watching on in two weeks but more importantly, paying for my Dr Horrible download, and later for the DVD (unless I'm horribly disappointed which... well, let's face it, is extremely unlikely now that I've seen how cool the trailer is. :D)

I'm not too sure what to think of the Heinz commercial that was pulled off the air because it showed two men kissing and their kids. I mean, I'm not sure what the humor was supposed to be with the whole calling one of the two dads 'mom' because it just seems to reinforce (hetero)sexist stereotypes, but there's one thing I'm sure of, it's that I'm fucking tired of hearing gay kisses are "inappropriate for children" and most of all I'm tired of American meddling in other English-speaking countries' affairs. The ad was going to run in England and in England only and so frankly Bill O'Reilley doesn't get to say what he wants or doesn't want to see because aside of all other issues, this is not his fucking country. There are times where I believe it would be appropriate but this is not one of them. No one is being hurt by the ad, and let other countries decide what their moral standards are going to be on gay stuff.

On a much more joyful note, this morning we have lots of Behind the Scenes pictures of Dr Horrible's Sing-Along Blog that have been released and that just rocks. :) It especially makes me happy to see the three Whedon brothers. And Whedon with super long sleeves. And Whedon with his cowboy hat. And Nathan being Nathan. Basically tons of happy in that album. :D

OMG PEOPLE. TRAILER FOR DR. HORRIBLE'S SING-ALONG BLOG.

I cannot fucking wait, this looks BRILLIANT. I'm laughing so hard at all the bits and pieces and I'll spare you the ramble. But OMG I CAN'T WAIT for this thing.


In other (even more shallow) news, I'm so in love with casual wear, real life Eliza Dushku.
