Just like every good geek should have, I caught Joss Whedon's Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog. Once all three acts where available, I transcoded them to DVD for the family to watch it with me, since we're not fans of cramming together in the closet to watch it on the computer screen. The quality of the recording is adequate to tide me over until Joss releases it to DVD and I can buy it. I tried iTunes, but it's not linux-friendly, and even when attempting to sign up on Vista, iTunes refused to accept my card. No error, no explanation, it just wouldn't let me do it. Anyway, I'm storing my backup DVD in a handy slim DVD case, and naturally, I had to mock up a good DVD cover to slip inside it for a label. I'm sure I'm not the only one who's burned this magnificent musical internet-TV miniseries to disc, so I thought I'd share my work:
Original GIMP image (flattened): DrHorribleDVDcover1.xcf
JPEG version if you can't handle the GIMP: DrHorribleDVDcover.jpg
300 dpi images, 10.5x7.25 inches print size, perfect for your snazzy photo printer, not so great on your crappy cheap ink jet, but it should tide you over until you can buy the real thing. And you will buy the real thing won't you? Only a real rat bastard would snatch a copy of Joss' hard work and not bother paying him and his crew for it. You know they deserve it, so pay up.
All images were either found on the web or screencaps from the show. Copyright for all the images belongs to Mutant Enemy (I assume). This project is a fan creation, and is not intended at all to promote inappropriate copying or distribution of Joss' original work. No, I will not share my ISO with you, so don't ask. Just get your legit downloads from iTunes (I'm pretty sure my experience was a fluke) and show proper support and respect for a job well done.
I'll keep these images available until the day the official Dr Horrible DVD is released. Once it's out, there's really no need to have them around anymore.
