Dr- Horrible

Catching Up On Doctor Horrible

Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog two is still in the works.  Zack Whedon in and interview lets us know

  • They are meeting every so often to talk about the project.
  • "There are a handful of songs in some state of being written,"
  • “I think that we will focus on that more now that Joss [Whedon] is done with 'Dollhous'e and has a little more time to focus on other projects."

It hurts to think that Dollhouse is done but on the plus side I like hearing that Joss will have more time to work on the project.  How long before we will get to see a Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog Two?  Probably quite a while but I would rather wait for a brilliant sequel then to rush into something unsubstantial.

Meanwhile, for those of us wanting more Doctor Horrible can follow along in the comics.  Whedon has plans for more Dr. Horrible comics.

  • A collection of all the 'Dr. Horrible' mini comics from online
  • “…A new story about the Evil League of Evil.”

I’m excited about a story in which we would get more about the members in the Evil League of Evil especially those featured at the end of Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog.  He will definitely do more Bad Horse.  I’m hoping something more about the Evil Whinny.

Joss Whedon Selected for the Vanguard Award

“Joss Whedon has mastered the art of melding the newest technology with inspired storytelling, truly exemplifying the spirit of the Vanguard Award,” said David Friendly and Laurence Mark, co-chairs of the PGA Awards.

It's great that the Producers Guild of America is recognizing Joss Whedon's achivements.  Creator of great shows like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly, Dollhouse and Dr. Horrible’s Sing Along Blog.  I can't wait to see his next project.

Hopefully from Joss' great experience with Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog the next project will be another independent project.

Odd: Worms’ Paralyzed By a Freeze Ray

doctor-horrible-freeze-rayI love how the National Geographic article begins referencing the “freeze ray” in Dr. Horrible.  It puts a smile on my face to see references to sci-fi in the mainstream scientific world.  Gives me hope that dreams are given the chance to possibly take shape. The freeze ray is far from reality, What researchers have done is put a light sensitive chemical into the nematodes.

“Upon UV exposure, the normally clear chemical turns blue, and it shuts down the worms' metabolism… A shot of visible light restored the worms to normal, and the animals slowly began to wiggle around "as if they had never been paralyzed," the study authors say.” -National Geographic

I wonder if this could have applicable uses for putting things in stasis.

For now the process is far from practice use though since the chemical was eventually fatal to the worms.
