Joss Whedon’s Intertnet Musical and more links!

Joss is writing and producing an internet musical called “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-A-Long Blog.” It will star Captain Tight Pants (Nathon Fillion) as Captain Hammer, and Felicia Day (former slayerette and current “The Guild” star).

Whedon, Captain, Muscial, Blog… these are all words that I like. Put them together in one concept and my geek asplode.

Here’s the rest of the whatever:

Check out these “Sweded” Movies on YouTubez in the same vain as “Be Kind Rewind”:

Friday Link-Fest

Podcast for this week is up in the air since Josh will be off gallivanting (literally) in another state and Eli will be at a couple of cons. Trying to figure out when we might be able to do one. Otherwise I’m going to edit the Lunchcast from February and use that.

Here are some things to have:

UPDATE!
I forgot to¬† link to the best thing I have ever seen on the internet. Seriously, it’s all been worth it because of this video: Will Arnett Sex Tape (from Human Giant Season 2)

I was more impressed when I thought it said “milliseconds”

Josh and Eli invited me to the new “Rambo” movie, but the 24 hour baby sitting service I use doesn’t exist so we had to pass. A fellow Corn Mo fan at RumorsDaily.com posted a Rambo Death Chart. It’s a special movie if a Death Chart is a useful record keeping tool. “Driving Ms. Daisy” did not require such a chart.

This is my favorite part:

Josh emailed me late that night with his review:

start with the crazy violence in Ricky-Oh, only using modern techniques that basically make it look real, then multiply that by about 100, you get the new Rambo.

FUCKING.

AWESOME.

Me and eli were freaking out in the theater it was so sweet.

This paints a picture of school girl enthusiasm that I envy, rather than pity. I’ll also take this opportunity to make sure that anyone who enjoys a good TERRIBLE kung fu movie that makes absolutely no sense and is completely perfect in every way knows about Ricky-Oh“, or “The Story of Ricky”.

This is a minimal amount of blood for Ricky-Oh.

I won’t spoil what happens to this guy.

If you can’t find a copy of this movie (and I suggest you try), you can see the short version or just the dead bodies on YouTube. Josh showed me this movie the first time we hung out, thus setting the stage for our entire friendship.

Heath Ledger found dead

Read the sad news here.

the housekeeper and the masseuse opened the bedroom and found Mr. Ledger naked and unconscious on a bed, with pills scattered around his body.

Update:
OMG, he died in 50% of Michelle Tanner’s apartment:

The actor Heath Ledger was found dead this afternoon in an apartment in Manhattan owned by the actress Mary-Kate Olsen, according to the New York City police. Mr. Ledger was 28.

Weekend Recap

Friday night saw my first front page Digg for a comic (the previous one was for the Guitar Hero III video). Special thanks to EvanStapler for submitting the story, and to everyone that Dugg it. As can be expected the traffic crashed my server and asploded my site. I was on the phone for 3 hours with my host trying to get it back up. I finally had to move to a more robust box (more robust = more $$$). Digg comments are a hard thing to read when they are concerning your own work. They range from innocuous to outright hateful. This was the best one:

I don’t have words for that. It’s poetry.

We were (this) close to seeing Cloverfield but got to the theater and saw this:

So we saw Sweeney Todd instead. My wife gets seasick easily and I have an inner ear/vertigo condition so I figured it best to see C-Field at home where I can sit in front of a puke bucket. Sweeney Todd was fantastic. Beautifully shot and excellently performed. The score was formidable to say the least. I enjoyed the movie even more when, in the first 15 minutes, two different sets of teenagers got up and left. “What’s all this gay singing and shit? Let’s get out of here and go have unprotected sex.”

Tom Cruise’s particular brand of crazy has been all over the net this week. In light of his galactic revelations I wanted to share this happy little accident I saw in Barnes and Noble a few weeks back:
