Slightly Embarrassing...

Well... of all the things of which I could be embarrassed, for some reason this is the main one of which I actually am...

I am somewhat obsessed with Doctor Horrible's Sing-Along Blog.

I bring this up now because today marks the two-year anniversary of the first time I watched said movie. Not two years as in 4 March - I don't remember the date that way, because I didn't take note of it at the time, it wasn't like 'Hey I just saw the movie with which I'm going to be embarrassingly obsessed for an embarrassingly long time and this date is going to stick in my memory, so stick it,' no - but two years as in the Friday before the Saturday on which all Little League here (my brother plays) has its opening ceremonies and first games. I remember on that Saturday two years ago suggesting to my family that we watch it (on Leigh's advice, though I had actually heard of it from someone else entirely: one of my father's less memorable girlfriends) and pretending (most convincingly) that I had never seen it, much less watched it secretly the very day before.

Anyway, if you haven't seen it, I can't help but recommend it, because it is actually very good, and the only thing that makes me embarrassed to like it is that I've been unreasonably obsessed with it for two years... Seriously, I've been trying to forget about it for at least a year and a half. With some success - probably the only reason I still think about it is that I've known I'm obsessed and every day I make it so far into the day before thinking, 'Hey, I haven't yet though about - oh crap I lose.' Like 'The Game' that so many people I know play: when you remember that the Game exists, you lose the Game.

Yeah. It's a superhero musical tragicomedy created by Joss Whedon and his family and starring a villain protagonist played by Neil Patrick Harris, who sings amazingly and has the awesomest evil laugh... Go watch it. And let me forget about it. Anyway, two years now.

Dr. Horrible...

...I love it. I haven't watched it in a while, but I have the soundtrack. Joss and co. amaze me.

Dr. Horrible's Sing-along blog is the best. TotalGeek42 (He has a bit of an NPH fixation) told me me to watch it some time back and it was fantastic. XD

So I think it's perfectly acceptable that you've been obsessed for the past two years. I mean, at least you're obsessed with something that's worth watching...

Okay, I'm sorry, but I've never heard of it in my life.

Though as all of you have good taste in my mind, I'll have to at some point soon.
