all good things must end

The summer of stalking of John Barrowman has ended for me.  Thanks to the generous dr_is_in, I was able to get to one more show.  Instead of a long rant about how the CBC is made of epic fail for their audience co-ordination skills, let's just say that after spending hours in line, we were among the last group to get into the studio.  We also had a guest of honour -- Lord Andrew Lloyd Weber -- who proceeded to cause John to have a laughing fit by mentioning a gerbil (don't ask).  Ended up sitting behind the judges so very few pictures.  After the show, we waited around and was able to catch John while he was leaving.  So glad the gals were able to meet him after driving all those hours.  I was able to get my magazine signed (yay) and while he did take some pictures, I didn't get the chance and I could tell he wanted to go.

There are no words to describe how perfect this man is in the flesh.







As he was leaving.  Check out those arms... *sigh*





Signing un_sedentary's book



Mission accomplished!  \o/

I watched the last episodes of Avatar: The Last Airbender.  While the ending was no surprise, I must say that some of the animation, especially the 2 major fight scenes in the finale, was quite beautiful.  This was a great series and I'm so glad I followed the advice and gave it a chance.  

***

No more Dr Horrible  =(  I keep reading mentions/possibility of a sequel so let's keep our fingers for that.  Act III was kinda a shocker but it's Whedon.  I shouldn't have been surprised.  I love how this series has turned so many people into NPH fans.  NPH is awesome.  I can't get "Can't Believe My Eyes" (song at the beginning of Act II) out of my head, I love it so.  When's the DVD coming out?

Those pictures are awesome! And you got a "Love, John" woo hoo!!!

I finally watched all 3 acts of Dr. Horrible yesterday...too funny. I laughed so hard at the song Capt. Hammer sang in Act 3, something Hero. Holy cow, it was so wrong but so funny. NPH wins and I can't believe people didn't already know that!!

Any luck with the Orlando tickets yet???

Wooooooo hooooooo!! He's so fucking pretty, Fan. I want a man like him.

Nathan Fillion was perfect as Capt Hammer. I love his line about he's looking forward to sleeping with the same girl twice so they can do the weird stuff LOL NPH's awesomeness will take over the world.

Ticket prices are holding steady, damn it! I'll look again when I get back from vacation but have no fear, they will be bought!

I could not believe the third act of Dr. Horrible! Did not like.

My favorite song was the "you're gonna die" one from the end of Act II.

Act III was a shocker. Had to take a moment to process. Reading TWoP, looks like it turned quite a few people off. I'm still buying the DVDs though and will probably just watch Acts I & II repeatedly.

"You're Gonna Die" is good too! And "Freeze Ray"!

Yay for more Barrowman! I can't believe I actually met him, spoke to him, got his picture and autograph. I may never recover.

Dr Horrible was awesome! And yes, the ending was a bit of a shocker, but then again, it shouldn't be. This is JOSS. I can't believe would be so put off by that if they know anything about Joss' stuff. He luuuuurves to do that to an audience.

He certainly does have that effect on people, doesn't he? *sigh*

I love your icon, hee! I still haven't forgiven him for killing Wash so the ending of Dr Horrible shouldn't have been a surprise. But that's the genius of Whedon -- even though we know how he works, we still get caught up and end up getting blindsided.

Great you got to see him again and yay for getting the mag signed by him too. Now I just have to get him to sign mine:)

He is looking good (when doesn't he). TW writers take note:)

John's manager noticed GDL's autograph and mentioned it so I told him that yes, I was at Polaris :)

Oh hey! We made it home safe and sound. It was such fun, wasn't it? Even with all the drama

I think I was on the verge of having a nervous breakdown at the end there.

I loved Dr. Horrible, yes even Act III! My kids and hubby didn't like it because they felt betrayed and thought the ending should have been consistent with the dangled carrot of campy fun throughout Act I, II, and most of III.

I didn't see it that way. The guy is called Dr. Horrible, he wants to join the Evil League of Evil, he wants to rule the world. Isn't it great that we got lulled into rooting for this character who is supposed to be the antithesis of what we as society are supposed to stand for (because we are shown the vulnerable nerd under the lab coat and he sings amusing songs really well) and then we are shocked that he got exactly what he wished for? All it cost him was what he wanted the most (Penny) and now his victory is like ashes in his mouth. That's twisted! Good on Joss!

We're probably going to buy the dvd as well, regardless of how the rest of my family feel about the ending. We've all been going around the past couple of days humming snatches of the song, especially "A man's got to do what a man's got to do..." I'm seriously impressed with NPH's singing chops--didn't know he had it in him!

As someone on another board pointed out, this is basically the origin story for a villian. Sure, the villian is kinda sweet and nerdy and you just want to pet him, but still, a villian. Act III did surprise me but I was cool with it after.

You didn't know NPH could sing? Before I watched "How I Met Your Mother", all I knew was that Doogie went down the Broadway path. He's done Cabaret & Rent that I know of. The surprise for me was Nathan -- who knew the Captain could sing? As if he wasn't perfect enough.

Oh, fear not, I admired his bottom quite extensively :) Tried to get a picture of the booty during the show as he bent over right in front me but I was too slow (or too mesmerized). Just for some reason, that night was the first time I actually *noticed* the arms.

Damn, he is a pretty, pretty man. :D

And yay, Avatar! I still haven't seen that last few episodes. :P But it's really good, isn't it? *bounces*
