One of the things that surprised me most about Dr. Horrible was the quality of the music. I knew Joss Whedon had written a musical episode of Buffy The Vampire Slayer that got great fan reaction, but I’ve never seen it, so I didn’t know how good he and his brother were with music.
These two songs, the finale of act 1 and the start of act 2, are easily my favorites (though I love . . . → Read More: Horrible music is really pretty good

I thought I’d give the site a new look, so I went searching for a new theme. I’m not entirely sold on this one yet, but I’m giving it a shot. There are some tweaks I definitely want to make, but it seems like a pretty decent theme. I’ve made a couple changes already.

Last week I started doing something I hardly ever do – I started reading a non-fiction book. Even more amazingly, it’s an auto-biography. That’s a genre I almost never delve into. In fact, I can’t even remember the last non-fiction book I read cover to cover. It’s not even a recent book. I ran across it literally by providence, and decided to bring it home.
