|12:19 am - Dr. Horrible's Charity Screening|
So I went to a charity screening in Hollywood tonight of "The Guild" and "Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog". There was a lot of people there! everyone was dressed up as something, I wore my Capt. Reynolds costume from a few years back. I figured it fit the Whedon theme. Things did not really start on time, but it was a good showing. Before they started the screening of "The Guild", the Luchadore Wrestler went up on the stage in front. When they pulled the mask off, it was Felicia Day. Which was pretty neato, so she introduced the show. After that was over, there was a five minute intermission before Dr. Horrible began. They captioned it so everybody could sing along, and it seemed like everyone had a bunch of fun. Turns out Joss and Jed Whedon were in the audience so they go up to the front with Felicia Day and thank everyone for coming and enjoying and what not, and they also had a guy up there in this weird costume. He pulls off his mask and it was Nathan Fillion. So he said a few words too. Alan Tuydk was there too. It was pretty cool they all came out the screening. As I was walking out I passed Nathan Fillion and he told me I was looking sharp. Thought that was funny.
I sort of discovered tonight that I am uncomfortable being a fan, and I don't know why. I like less and less being in the audience, and feel more and more like I should up there making things. Guess I need to apply myself a little more.
It was a good night though.

Dude, I know exactly how you feel about the being the fan thing.
That costume was shiney.
That is very cool of Whedon, Fillion and Tuydk to be there, but what about Dr. Horrible himself? Did they explain why NPH wasn't there?
P.S. I bet Felicia Day was hot in "stretchy pants. You know . . . is for fun."
P.S.S. If you want to see a movie with a superior comedic performance by Alan Tuydk watch Death At A Funeral. He plays an uptight Brit, at a funeral, on LSD.
No word on NPH, I sort of hoped he was going to be there. Felicia Day was in tight, skimpy wrestling shorts. Same difference :-P
I am gonna try to check out that Tuydk flick mayb over X-mas break when I am in Chicago with Margaret.
He has a relatively small role, but he stole the entire movie. Plus, his accent was so spot on (as far as I could tell) I started to doubt if he was an American. I started to think he was doing a "Christian Bale" in Firefly.
He's not the only American in Death at a Funeral. Peter Dinklage, the Angry Elf from Elf, is in it. He's an extremely talented actor who'd be as figuratively big as Tom Hanks if he wasn't literally shorter than Danny Devito.
