Blowing Up Stuff with Dr. Horrible

13 Jan

I know what you’re thinking, “Where’s all the fantastic new content you promised us, Amy?”  Next week, I will be posting my review of Brandon Heath’s new album, Leaving Eden as well as a book review of Fall to Grace by Jay Bakker. Also, Josh Wilson is releasing a brand new album on Feb. 8 called See You, and it’s excellent, so expect coverage on that front.

Admittedly, the first few weeks of January are the hardest of the year for me.  I blogged a little bit about it over on Atypical Musings (read post), which I’ve once again resurrected because I need a place to scream.  Feel free to check out my thoughts on life, the universe, and everything over there as well.

Here’s the thing…there are things I want to do for Backseat Writer, including video and sound, but I’m really incapable when it comes to those areas.  I can shoot video and record sound; I just can’t edit it.  I’m really stuck on the best ways to present new media to you.    I want Backseat Writer to be a creative playground…I’m just considering the best ways to do that.  I mean, it’s hard to be creative all by myself. If you have any thoughts on the matter, please send me an e-mail or post a comment.  I want to think outside of the box.  Heck, I want to blow that box wide open.  See my explosion pic above?  That’s totally the box and not only are we going to blow it open, we’re going to blow it up.

As I continue to contemplate, find creativity, and seek God, I thought I’d leave you with this fine video clip from Dr. Horrible’s Sing-along Blog.  Don’t know what I’m talking about?  Click here.  Isn’t Wikipedia an Internet marvel?

Here at Casa de Amy and Sarah, we just got NetFlix, which means we can stream movies like Dr. Horrible’s Sing-along Blog to our TV through our Wii.  If you can’t stream Dr. Horrible into your living room, you can rent or purchase the DVD of the web show.  Also, the soundtrack is available in hard and downloadable copies online.  Check it out.

For all you Dr. Horrible fans, what’s your favorite line from the movie?

    It’s a toss up for me. Either
    “It’s curtains for you Dr. Horrible. Lacy, gently wafting curtains. ”
    or
    “… goodness, look at my wrist. I gotta go!”

    Awesome stuff. The DVD for it has “Commentary! The Musical” where they sing the commentary. Haven’t seen it yet, but need to check it out. I’ll get it from Netflix and watch it while wearing my Captain Hammer shirt.

    @Clay I want Dr. Horrible goggles. 🙂 I don’t think they have “Commentary! The Musical!” on NetFlix, but I can get the DVD of Dr. Horrible in the mail.

    No, you can’t get the commentary on streaming. Netflix is great though. Been using it since 2001.

    It depends on what is horrible. Dr. Horrible isn’t horrible he just wants to be horrible – I just don’t know why. The whole Dr. Horrible Sing Along Blog wasn’t that horrible….just the ending….

    So what is so hysterical about your mother watching Dr. Horrible? You wanted to watch it and I wanted to be with you, so we watched it together. It’s call mother/daughter bonding.
