I picked this up from Scott Johnson’s Extralife blog, but i thought it deserved reposting here due to it’s awesomeness… An alarm clock that wakes you up with the smell and sizzle of cooking bacon!..
I meant to post about this over the weekend, as it was online online offically for a limited time, but all 3 acts of Joss Whedon’s ‘Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along-Blog‘ went live last week.
‘Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along-Blog’ was penned during the WGA strike by Joss, his brothers Jed and Zack, and Jed’s fiancÃ©e Maurissa Tancharoen. It’s 40mins of singing goofyness, following the tale of Dr. Horrible, his arch nemesis Captain Hammer, and Penny the object of Horrible’s affection.
Nathan Fillion (Firefly, Serenity) plays Captain Hammer, the rather smug superhero who spends his time beating down Horrible.
For those wishing to see its gone from the main site, it’s on iTunes… in the US… thanks for that (really helpful to us non US people…)
So if your one of our many UK readers, you might want to try here for Act One:
Okay okay… I promised myself i wouldn’t post any April 1st gags, but Blizzard do it so well, and this was just laugh out loud funny. Full site at worldofwarcraft.com/moltencore/ even with a trailer!
They’re also showcasing their new Bard Hero Class, which given the recent merger with Activision, is just genius!
