On a lighter note...

If, like me, you are convinced that high school children 300 years in the future will study the television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Firefly in order to soak in the BRILLIANCE that is Joss Wheedon and you loved the musical Buffy episode "once more with feeling", you will be thrilled, nay, GIDDY AS A SCHOOL GIRL to find out about

It seems that during the writer's strike Joss made this and released it free onto the web. So not only do we get a dose of his writing genius, we also get a dose of the acting prowess of Nathan Fillion (who played Mal in the Firefly series and the movie Serenity and Caleb in the last season of Buffy) AND some musical comedy goodness with a little dark twist. So, when the kids are tucked up in bed asleep (it's not a kid's show, there are some rather...well, it's not for the kids anyway!) go to the official site. If you can't get the download to work, you may have to go to You Tube and type "Dr. Horrible's Sing-along Blog" into the search bar.

Just be sure to buy the DVD and soundtrack!

WARNING: as with everything, this will not be to everyone's taste. It is not Christian and certainly not something I will be allowing the kids to watch for a good few years. But I love it!
If you don't, well, that's up to you.
