Sing, Sang, Sung – “My Freeze Ray” From “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog”

I’ve actually got quite a lot of things to talk about. Many political. States’ rights, free market economy, what the election means for America, CEOs threatening to not hire thanks to Obamacare…

What, you thought you’d heard the last of political nonsense now that the election’s officially over? You poor fool. We’ve got reactions to the election to look at, like how Alabama and Mississippi are intensely racist and awful, or like how there are at least 15 petitions on WhiteHouse.gov with over 150 signatures started by random citizens for states to secede from the union. And then there’s the whole “What do the results mean” talk, like how does the GOP have to change and what do the GOP leaders in Congress need to do in order to help fix the economy and et cetera.

And I want to talk about a lot of those things. I think many of the subjects of politics for the next many years are, well, very important. I think discussion is very important. It can get hairy, of course, as this year’s Thanksgiving may prove for me and my family… I don’t know if I can hold back if my mother starts waxing Poe-esque poetic about the doom and gloom of our nation and how America as a world power and a land of freedom and opportunity is dead…

But you don’t have to hear me babble on about politics tonight. Today is laundry day, and the first full laundry day I’ve had in, like, a month. Maybe longer. I’ve had opportunities to throw a single load of clothes in the wash over the past many weeks, but today all of it gets washed. And, beyond that, I apparently need to go grocery shopping and pick up a few non-edible essentials. After which, I’m going to have to lay low on my spending money for a while… thanks to Christmas shopping, rent, my wreck and my Tracfone suddenly deciding to drain all my units inexplicably, I’m rather low on funds. I mean, I get paid on Thursday, but I’m still riding a bit of a line for a bit. I may need to revisit my $31 a week food plan. Just for money’s sake.

Anyway, as this is laundry day for me, and I don’t have time to write much else (or, in reality, actually ponder and formulate an intelligent position on much else, I can write rather quickly), I wanted to leave you with the laundry day anthem, brought to you by one of the joys in life, Joss Whedon’s “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog.” If you haven’t seen it, go watch it. It’s on Netflix Instant Play and it’s under an hour long. And it’s got Neil Patrick Harris, Nathan Fillion and Felicia Day. And singing. And a horse.

Go watch. (And, if you’re really itching for politics, watch this Epic Rap Battle between Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama. Fair warning, it’s not entirely safe for work… but it is entirely pretty funny.)

“My Freeze Ray” – “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog”

Laundry day
See you there
Under things
Tumbling

Wanna say
Love your hair
Here I go
Mumbling

With my freeze ray
I will stop the world

With my freeze ray
I will find the time to
Find the words to

Tell you how
How you make
Make me feel
What’s the phrase?

Like a fool
Kinda sick
Special needs
Anyways

With my freeze ray
I will stop the pain
It’s not a death ray or an ice beam
That’s all Johnny Snow
I just think you need time to know

That I’m the guy to make it real
The feelings you don’t dare to feel
I’ll bend the world to our will
And we’ll make time stand still

That’s the plan
Rule the world
You and me
Any day

Love your hair
(“What?”)
“No I- I, uh love the- air”
Anyway

With my freeze ray I will stop-
