I was looking through my web stats this morning and I noticed that I had a link from cuil.com, the latest in a long string of supposed “Google Killers.” I clicked on the link, http://www.cuil.com/search?q=”dr horrible” and was quite surprised to get the results shown here
You probably can’t tell from the small version, so click on it for a larger version. Notice that on a search for “dr horrible,” instead of getting drhorrible.com, as you should, you get me. Twice, in fact; two different blog postings I wrote about Dr. Horrible’s Sing-a-Long Blog. That’s right. According to cuil.com, I am the best match for “dr horrible.” WTF? There have been lots of sightings of bogus results from cuil, but I was really surprised to find one featuring me.
Since I was already at cuil.com, I decided to egosurf and see if they had fixed their results for my name. Nope. Searching for me at Google returns a mostly-correct set of results. There are two link in there about the former Playboy playmate who shares my name, but all the rest of the front page results are about me.
I don’t know for how long, but all of Dr. Horrible’s Sing-a-Long Blog is available to watch for free on Hulu. Hulu is a legit service from NBC, so you’re not doing anything illegal by watching it. So, go watch it and then buy it from iTunes. And then buy the soundtrack when it comes out. And then buy the DVD when it comes out… 🙂
I just finished watching Act III of Dr. Horrible’s Sing-a-Long Blog and it was very powerful. The end was not what I was expecting, I can tell you that. I don’t want to spoil anything, but don’t look for the cliché; it’s not there. The writing and acting in this short were both top-notch. As I said before, I really wish it weren’t just a three-part special. I’d like to see more episodes.
They should also make the soundtrack available as a download from iTunes. There was some good music in there.
Act II of Dr. Horrible’s Sing-a-Long Blog was release today, and it’s just as funny as Act I. Once again, the music is great and the story is getting very interesting. I was talking with a friend about it, and we both wish it were going to last longer than three episodes. Maybe if Joss makes enough money from people buying it from iTunes, as my friend and I both did, he’ll extend it. Maybe.
Not to spoil anything, but be sure to keep an eye on Moist during his scene with Dr. Horrible. It’s subtle, but funny.
