Filled With Glee

I was just reminded about Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, and now I'm passing that on to you. What does this have to do with children's and YA lit?

Uh, well, it's helmed by Joss Whedon, whose iconic Buffy the Vampire Slayer was all about the experience of being a teenager and growing up . . . and, um, it's on the internet, and these kids today, they like this internet thing . . . and uh, it's a subversive pastiche of comic book paradigms and . . . and . . .

Oh, the heck with it. I don't even know what "pastiche" means (or "paradigms" for that matter). You guys, it's a supervillain musical written by Joss Whedon.

Let's go over that again.

Supervillain.

Musical.

Joss Whedon.

You can go now. But quick, because it's only up until July 20th. Me, I'm gonna go sing "Brand New Day" for sixteenth time.

I just love the premise of a villain who keeps a blog. It's very logical, as villains always like to spout off about their evil plans to all who'll listen. Blogs give them an easy platform. (Which, of course, backfires for Dr. H.)

I'm keeping a running tally of my favorite lines. So far, I have "The status is NOT quo," "the thoroughbred of sin," "Dude, you are NOT my nemesis," and "the hammer is my penis."
