Update & Alert
Looks like the Dr. Horrible site is awfully busy … I can manage to get in now. So I guess not sleeping was good for my viewing pleasure, eh? Perhaps the birds will wake me again tonight and I can watch parts 2 and 3. (I’m sorry now that I didn’t watch them right away. Oh well.)

As some readers know, I’m one of those odd oboists (Okay, okay … you think all oboists are odd? So. Well then. I’m odderer.) who likes musicals. So when I checked out Episode One of Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog by Josh Whedon I was hooked.

Hooked, though, means only three episodes from what I’ve read. Currently it’s free online. I guess in a short while it’ll be on iTunes for legal download.

So … check it out if you are odderer like I.

And yes, I’m writing this at 2:39 AM. There’s a very insistent bird chirping outside and the darn thing is keeping me awake.

  1. While I don’t classify myself as an oboist (yet), I do enjoy musicals (I was doomed, perhaps, by my parents playing the LPs of many musicals*, for those what even know what an LP are, over and over). I’ve always preferred the rehearsal-to-performance ratio of musicals to plain ol’ orchesters, at least at the amateur level.

    *even such things as Finnegan’s Rainbow and Roar of the Greasepaint…though, strangely, never Brigadoon, which I’ve played twice.
