Best Online Mini-Series

Dr Horrible's Sing-Along Blog

Who hasn't heard of Vlogs? (Video Blog for those who haven't).  If you've watched The Guild, then you'll notice that the beginning of each episode is Codex doing her own vlog.  This is what Dr. Horrible is doing, and he's AWESOME.  I love Neil Patrick Harris and he was the perfect person for the part!!  I don't know if it was just so funny because of how ridiculous it was or the singing or what, but it's a great laugh.  Certainly better than anything you'll find on tv, because this is...ORIGINAL.   A 2nd "season" came out, so if you're looking for it on YouTube, make sure you catch all of it :)

Best Song of the Series: My Freeze Ray.  
Really, it was really hard to decide but I think that because this is at the beginning of Act 1, that it just hooked me into watching more.  (Bad Horse Chorus came in a close 2nd).

Amazon Editorial Review:
On the DVD
Even if you've already watched or downloaded Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, a number of bonus features might entice you. There are two commentary tracks: Harris, the three Whedons, Tancharoen, Day, and Fillion recorded a spirited track discussing the movie, and there's also "Commentary! The Musical" in which they ignore the movie and sing about the writers' strike and each other (e.g., Fillion sings "I'm Better than Neil")--the songs aren't as good as the Horrible songs, but it's good silly fun. A 20-minute making-of discusses the cast, the recording sessions, and how the movie became a phenomenon, and 10 videos (a half-hour total) were recorded by fans who want to join the Evil League of Evil. And when's the last time you wanted to pause the FBI warning? --David Horiuchi

Starfleet Commander aka SFC

My previous addiction. A very cool online game with real time attacks. NOT Star Trek related although you will find some followers there.  Can be played on or off of Facebook.  If you like strategy games, this is the best free game for you. There are various versions of the game and various ways to be a player.  I have since retired, but if any of my gamer friends would like their referral link added, give me a shout.

The original game, started in Sept. 09 aka my former addiction with 100 galaxies.
Began in Feb. 2010. Faster ships and building times. BFG (Blue Frog Gaming) realized that 100 galaxies was too large and has since lowered to only 20 galaxies for all games thereafter. (Note: Each galaxy has 499 systems. Each system has 15 planets.)

Began in Sept. 2010. Much better mining, which means better "income."

Began in Dec. 2010. Similar to Uni 2, but faster like SFCX. 

(Note to players, I didn't forget Mafia Boss, but it's stupid LOL)

The reasoning behind the "same" game being recreated with these changes instead of simply changing the original game is so that "newer" players will be on the same playing field and have a chance at being a top dog as opposed to someone that has been playing for over a year.  If you're interested in the game, I suggest trying one out, if you like it, learn as much as you can so that when the new universe comes out, you'll be at your best.

Also check out the forums and the Wiki to learn more:

This is me...

This is a doormat:



Now, if you have difficulty distinguishing between the two, I don't think glasses will help and a visit to the optometrist would be a complete waste of your time.  So, all I can suggest is that you stop trying to talk to me, because I won't waste my time on you. 

Note: This blog is not directed at any one person. If you have this overwhelming urge to give me a piece of your mind or feel that it's directed at you, then it is and you should reread the red sentence.
