Daily Dose Holiday Blog Giveaway: Gothic Love

Welcome to day four of our holiday blog giveaway! I hope you are enjoying these giveaways as much as I am in coordinating them.

Everyone once and a while, you discover an extraordinary piece of prose.

Sunday Snips and Clips: Emmys, Ritas and More

Dr Horrible wins Emmy for Short-format Live-Action Special Class. Nathan Fillion was tweeting away and posting pics like this one to the right. Always a fun thing to see for the fans! I have to confess, I’ve never actually seen Dr. Horrible’s Sing-A-Long Blog. I’ve heard tremendous things about it, but it’s just never been my cup of tea. Now, being a fan of Mr. Fillion and Mr. Whedon, I shall surely check this out at some point. I rather hope after looking at the picture to the right that Mr. Fillion gets another Emmy someday. He’s such a talented […]
