Celebrating the Whedons

This post is partly because a good friend of mine just bought the Dr. Horrible Sing A-long Blog DVD.  If you don't know what this is, then you need to go here for your life to be complete.  Trust me.

Don't trust me?  Well fine, here's one of the fantastic songs from this musical.  Watch it as a sneak peek, and then watch the entire thing.

I actually watched this over a year ago and fell in love with it. It's hard not to.  It's a fantastic cast, a great sound track and it's really well written.  That's what you expect from something produced by Joss Whedon.  But the great thing to find out was that it was somewhat a family affair.

Joss brought in his two brothers Zach and Jed.  Zach helped with writing the script, bringing a lot of dry humor to the whole thing.  Jed helped with the lyrics and with the music.  And if I mention music, I shouldn't forget that Joss brought in his friend Maurissa Tancharoen to help with that as well.  This family team helped produce one of the best free webisode series out there!

I just find it very cool when family members jive together well enough to make something of creative genius.  Not every family can do that.

And for those of you who have seen Dr. Horrible already, please go back and listen to the commentary, that is completely sung.  That's right, it's Commentary: The Musical.  With great song including "I'm better than Neil" by Nathan Fillon.  That's always a favorite.

What are you waiting for, see it now!
