Clockwork Cabaret

 

A lovely diversion may be found at www.clockworkcabaret.com and also www.myspace.com/clockworkcabaret. Enjoy the adventures of two sisters aboard the airship Calpurnia!

Super folk in Dr. Horrible

So, what can we infer about supers in the world inhabited by Dr. Horrible?

We get mentions of Conflict Diamond, Hourglass and Bait and Switch, besides appearances of Dr. Horrible himself and Moist. We see Pink Pummeler and Purple Pimp (so identified in the credits). Then there's the Evil League of Evil: Professor Normal, Fake Thomas Jefferson, Tie-Die, Dead Bowie, Fury Leika, Snake Bite, and the Thoroughbred of Sin himself, Bad Horse.

The only hero mentioned is Captain Hammer. Does he have help? Obviously his ego is large enough to be the only one.

Do they have powers? Apparently some of them do, to judge by Moist.

What have I missed?

Now if I just had an iPhone…

This is much better. I don't really want most of the choices, especially not kobold or goblin, but it fits better with the setting.

Tomorrow will tell!

My brother’s on IMDB

Just talked with Rick. The movie he acted in has actually come out on DVD! It's now called Kill Zone, and is listed in IMDB: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0972878/. He says it's not too bad. Not sure about the distribution, since it's an independent film. Exciting, though! He said the DVD has a version with commentary in which the director raves about Rick's acting on screen. Cool! You go, Bro!!
