Okay. Look. Sorry. We've been busy… the dog ate our homework… there was localised flooding… some kind of freak temporal paradox… OUR COMPUTERS WERE ABDUCTED AND PROBED BY ALIENS! And then returned.
Anyway, the long and the short is that we've not posted in a while, and we're deeply sorry, but promise it won't happen again. Much.
But let's not dwell on the recent past shall we?
Well, oh, hey, actually, let's dwell just a moment or two. Because while we were in what we now like to call our "Quiet Period of Deep Personal Reflection", Dr Horrible's Sing-along Blog hit the wires.
It's the latest piece of genius broadcasting from the frankly disgustingly talented Joss Whedon. If you're even remotely geeky you'll already know that he's the godlike talent behind Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Firefly, and the accompanying movie Serenity. (If you're not remotely geeky, you're probably in a 'whatever' frame of mind after reading that list, but trust us, this stuff is good.)
It's a three-part webshow (y'know, like a TV show, but on the web) that Whedon wrote, financed and directed as a way of having a bit of fun during the recent writers' strike in Hollywoodland. It's the tale of Dr Horrible's fight against his arch nemesis, all-round cheesy goody-guy Captain Hammer. And it's done as a musical. And it's really really good. So go watch.
(And you can read more about it all in this Observer article.)
Ah, it's good to be back.
