[12:01:24] FeliciaDay: higlet what's your question
[12:01:36] worldofhiglet: Hi Felicia, I'm a big admirer of you and all your works :) One thing I would like to ask is did you (or anyone else) do any improvisation during the filming of Dr Horrible or was it all tightly scripted? And will you be doing some more Being Humans improv in the future?

The Dr Horrible team worked their little socks off yesterday trying to get the teething problems sorted out. These guys and gals have been working flat out and the good news is that everyone should be able to view Part 1 by now. Which is good because in only a few hours Part 2 is released! This is the latest Twitter from Dr Horrible:
Get ready for Act 2! Midnight EST www.drhorrible.com
So there you have it! Be part of the revolution and stay up/get up early (depending on where you live, of course!) and be one of the first to see it. You know you want to...
What a Buzz...
And for all the latest news and reviews head over to the Official Fan Site,DoctorHorrible.net. The webmaster there has also been working very hard to keep everything on track and there were many, many updates yesterday!

The new Dr Horrible server is up!
But some people are still having trouble accessing the site. This is the latest Tweet from the lovely Dr Horrible:
Server is still propagating (fancy talk, I know). This might work in the meantime http://www.drhorrible.com.nyud.net/
I've just tried it and it works like a charm, so if you are still having problems do try this - it really is worth it! And check out the Official Fansite for all the news because it has been a momentous day indeed. Any doubts about whether fans would bother to watch have been monumentally crushed. Oh happy day!
Dr Horrible slays Whedonesque
Whedonesque.com is down due to the overwhelming interest in Dr Horrible. Our host has disabled the database and says our traffic is 5x the maximum allowed. So we're working very hard to move to another server. This will hopefully not take too long, within the next 48 hours.
Meanwhile, feel free to join whedonesque.org, our forum.

Ok, so there were a few technical hitches in that Hulu is only available in the US, but the Dr Horrible team worked quickly to get around that. So now everyone can see Dr Horrible Part 1 NOW!
It is so good...I'm going to watch it again in a minute but I wanted to share this. The Dr Horrible team gave this link: http://www.kuanhoong.com/2007/12/18/how-to-watch-hulu-shows-outside-of-usa/ to enable people outside the US access to Hulu. You have to dopwnload a small application that gives you a US IP address but then you can watch. So this is what you do:
1. Go to http://www.kuanhoong.com/2007/12/18/how-to-watch-hulu-shows-outside-of-usa/
2. Download the AnchorFree application, read the instructions and install it
3. Click on the Anchor and ensure it goes to green
4. Go to http://www.drhorrible.com/act_I.html to watch and be stunned.
Neil Patrick Harris is magnificent, Felicia Day is wonderful and Nathan Fillion is fantastic (and looks really ripped!). The music is awesome and the whole ensemble is...well, I've run out of hyperbole but it is really, really, really great. So there. Now go watch!

Wednesday, July 9, 2008
I've missed a lot, that's for sure. Some of it has gone forever but that's ok, I'm in the mindset to go with the flow. There's a few things, though, that I'd like to bring to your attention. Chances are you know about them already (you being so discerning and all), but it doesn't hurt to post about them.
Felicia Day Watch Updates
So many things going on for our favourite actress/writer/producer at the moment! Here's some recent highlights:
The Guild Season 1: Pre-orders are now being taken! You can order Season 1 via WatchTheGuild.com and if you do pre-order before August 1st there's free shipping (sweet!). Look out for the brilliant, exclusive extras available that include never-before-seen gag reels, interviews, commentaries and subtitles. I ordered mine and then realised I was sending it to the wrong address - Doh! I can't get used to this technology stuff, it was totally my fault for not updating PayPal with the right details. But thanks to Felicia it's actually going to be sent out to the right address - she really cares!
EPIC FU of the week - it's Felicia. Now I know everyone is busy busy busy but if you are in any way interested in why I seem to be slightly (!) obsessed with Ms Day, this is a good place to start. The interview goes to the heart of what makes her special and why The Guild and Doctor Horrible are so important. If you have any interest in the Internet/TV/movies, watch this interview. Yes, I guess that does mean all of you. And because of that interview she also makes the front page of Revision3.com, which is pretty cool.
Which brings us to the next part - Doctor Horrible!
Doctor Horrible Official website is up!
The next exciting news is that there is now a great trailer to watch AND a schedule of release dates for the 3 episodes. There was an in-depth article on TVGuide.com:
"Dr. Horrible, written during the writers' strike and filmed in six days this spring "on favors and waivers" by a crew of longtime Whedon loyalists, will be streamed for free in what Whedon cheerfully calls an "Internet miniseries event" on the show's official website (www.drhorrible.com) in three chapters. Part 1 will be available Tuesday, July 15, with the following segments (each roughly 14 minutes) available July 17 and 19. All three parts will stay up only through July 20, but deals are currently underway to make it available for downloading shortly thereafter."
Looking at the calendar that's - eek! - less than a week away. Joss Whedon, Felicia Day, Nathan Fillion, Neil Patrick Harris, cast of tens - this is one Internet Event you really don't want to miss.
Can't Stop The Serenity - Jewel Staite answered my question!
We had such a great time at the Vancouver Serenity Screening, I can't thank Serena, Gayle and all the other organisers enough. I'm just sorry that I couldn't Blog about it before now due to recent events. I'm going to do a full post about it next week but for now just this little teaser - I have the answer to a question very close to Firefly/Serenity fans' hearts (but no, it doesn't have anything to do with a new film/series - sorry!).
And Finally (but not least)
Thank you again for all your well-wishes, stories, comments and prayers. It makes things easier to deal with when you know you are not alone and it has proved to me again that 'virtual' friends are friends in a very real sense. I'm glad that I decided to share the news. I hope that other people will see that they are not alone, and that things will get better.
Sunday, July 6, 2008
First off, thank you all for your well-wishes. I know I left suddenly, it was unavoidable. I wasn't sure whether to just pretend nothing had happened and start Blogging again or whether it was best to offer an explanation. In the end I decided on a compromise - a short explanation.
I had been keeping a secret. I was pregnant and nearing the 12 week mark, the magic time when it is usually safe to reveal the news because the threat of miscarriage is lower then. Unfortunately I had had a couple of problems and my doctor recommended a scan. At the scan I found out that the baby was no more and I had to go into hospital. It was a brutal shock amplified by being a long way from my family in England. It has taken some time to come to terms with it all, and that is an on-going project.
But....I have a family, have children, have friends, a wonderful husband and lots of support. I'm taking it slowly but I will rejoin my online activities. Events like this can make you feel like you are on the outside, puts a barrier between you and other people. I don't want that to happen. Miscarriage is a painful fact of life - it happens to many women, couples, families. Everyone copes with grief in different ways but one thing I do know is this: it always helps when someone tries to express sympathy. Even if your expression of sympathy doesn't come out the way you intended, or seems to make the other person upset, the fact that you tried to comfort them and offer support is much better than avoiding the subject. Pretending it didn't happen simply makes it harder to deal with for everyone.
So that's the deal. It's been difficult but getting better. I will be starting to Blog again soon. Remember to keep reaching out to people, and thanks again for all the support. Peace.
