"It's going to be make a lot of people want to sing". Felicia Day talks about "Dr Horrible's Sing-Along Blog" and when it will get released.

so looking forward to seeing this
Comicon 2008 takes place July 24 - 27, so presumably we'll be seeing Dr. Horrible soon!!
Good interview. I have no idea who Rothfuss is, but he interviews Felicia well, so I'll look for his book. And back to F.D.--kudos to her for being multi-talented and adapting her obsessions into more creative streams. And for well-phrased compliments to Joss!
Felicia also did an interview with him on her blog.

It's a good interview. The questions are different that the usual ones.
"The Name of the Wind" is a fabulous novel.
Can't wait for part 2.
If there's a way she could be lovelier without actually stapling, like, puppies to her person i'd love to hear it.

(some of the comments she apparently gets about 'The Guild' are a bit depressing though)
Nice interview. This is actually the first one with her that I've had time to read, but her personality really seems to shine through in her answers.

(And I didn't know she went to UT. Hook 'em!)

I'm really looking forward to Dr. H. And I'm glad it's going to be sooner rather than later.
I was lucky enough to pick up Rothfuss book on a whim. Quite possibly the best piece of writing(fantasy or otherwise) to come out in the last 30 years. I'm pimping it to everyone, everywhere. Plus, he's a Whedon fan. Check out the pick on the Bio page :)
"Name of the Wind" was a very fun read, I'm looking forward to the sequel.
Great interview.

Dr. Horrible within the next two-and-a-half months! Sweet!
1. the act of anticipating or the state of being anticipated.
2. realization in advance; foretaste.
3. expectation or hope.
5. intuition, foreknowledge, or prescience.
6. Law. a premature withdrawal or assignment of money from a trust estate.
7. Music. a tone introduced in advance of its harmony so that it sounds against the preceding chord. (Also an awesome Carly Simon song.)

This whole waiting thing is turning out to be rather excruciating. Also Saje, thanks for bringing the vivid (slightly vomity) imagery with the stapling puppies comment. :)
Need to see this RIGHT NOW.
It always makes me slightly happy to know that something awesome is released around June/July. Mostly because that's when exams are over and the summer starts. It's practically the perfect timing for motivational purposes. (e.g. Harry Potter)
Because of this, Dollhouse, and the Iron Man movie, I finally gave up and coughed up $75 for Comic Con. I anticipate it'll be buckets of thrills. :)
korkster, as conventions go, Comic Con is by far the best deal of any of them. That $75 is nothing compared to what you get. Every other con is much more expensive with much less to offer.
I know. I just wish I knew what I was buying. They don't have the program out yet, and I'd like to schedule my time visiting the stuff I like, rather than getting lost in the vendor section.

My last experience at Comic-Con was about 6 years ago, and I didn't really know what to do there. Hopefully, I'll have a chance this year to figure things out. Or meet someone who won't mind holding my hand while we check out all of the cool stuff.
And you'll get a chance to visit the awesome (If I do say so myself) California Browncoats booth. We'll have all kinds of merchandise, guest appearances(I wonder who? as he looks at the thread this is posted in) and (cross your fingers) an exclusive or 2.

Plus we'll be raising money for a charity. Don't forget to keep an eye on all the news at

This ends my blatant commercialism.
korkster Comic-Con will post the schedule a couple weeks before the con. Just keep an eye out and you'll be able to plan a lot before you ever step foot in the convention center. Just be prepared to make some tough choices, there is so much going on at the same time you will invariably have to miss something.
What danregal said. Korkster, you will have too many choices of panels to go to and will be lucky to see the entire vendor area. 4 days really isn't enough time to see everything.
I also hear it's crazy crowded. Do they have enough space for the people who purchase tickets?

Great ad, James. Made me check out the website and send an e-mail to Dwight.

Thanks for the input, TamaraC & danregal. Looking forward to it!
All of the comments here prompted me to purchase my own copy of "The Name of the Wind."
Great! We need all the volunteers we can get.

As for being crowded, yes. It's pretty bad, but as long as the Fire Marshall doesn't shut them down, they've legally got enough space. If you attend panels on the weekend and walk the floor the first couple days, it will be a little better. Not much probably, but a little. It sounds bad, but it's better to know what's coming instead of being surprised.
I finally gave up and coughed up $75 for Comic Con.

I did that last month. Really, it's $75 down the drain because I can't actually do anything else to plan on going (like, you know, booking a flight and figuring out where TF to stay), heh.
I could find you a place to stay, bix. They have a hoStel in downtown... pretty close to the convention center. Cheap and close. That's pretty good.
