I just watched episode two
of Dr. Horrible and it is the best thing ever! Don't get me wrong, it has its problems. The main cast consists of three people, all of whom are white, and all the minor parts are played by white people, so it kind of fails on the diversity front. And of the three main characters, the girl is pretty much just the prize the two guys fight over. But. But. It's so, so funny! And the songs are really good and catchy. I would totally buy a soundtrack if they put one out.
I also really love the format. I'm not a TV person. I don't really want seven seasons of some epic show. Three 13-minute installments is right up my alley, though.
For now, I leave you with a quote:
"She's giving it up for Captain Hammer, and these *holds up fists* are not the hammer."
*comes back in a moment later*
"The hammer is my penis."
In other news, we went to the Promenade tonight so I could spend my $20 Barnes & Noble gift card. I really wish it had been for Best Buy or somewhere, because I really hate buying books new. I got a hardcover and it was $27 total. ;_; Even if I had bought two regular sized paperbacks, it would have been almost $20, and most of the books I wanted were in trade paperback anyway, which is like $15.
I got The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Diaz, which I'd been wanting to read for a while. I wish I had thought to write down the books I wanted, because of course once I got to the store I couldn't remember anything. I only found this by chance, as they happened to have a copy face out.
We also went to Fatburger and I tried their Maui Banana Shake, which was omg so good.
