I hope to set an example, you know, for children and stuff.” -Captain Hammer

Wow. I suck.  I can’t believe that I let myself put off Dr. Horrible’s Sing-along Blog for so long.  It was faaaaantastic.  Would be fairly hard not to be though, having both NPH and Nathan Fillion in it.  I’ve had it on my ‘To Watch’ list for far too long and finally decided to say screw the other things that were there, including a decent number of pornos, and watch it.  Sadly to say I think I may have gotten more enjoyment out of it than if I had watched the porn.  Now I must sit and await for the potentiality of the sequel, and the awesomeness that it may bring.

On that note I like villains.  I feel that all too often not enough of them get their story out there.  It is normally 1) good guy story 2) good guy back story making you feel pity for him 3) point blatantly at the person who made good guy cry for mommy 4) person laughs evilly and says that given the chance he would make good guy cry for gramama too 5) person that made good guy cry is made to feel lots of pain and/or prison sentence.  Those stories are far too prevalent in my opinion.  Sure there are a few movies out there now that show the bad guy, like Megamind, but they always make him turn good so that we get our happy ending.  Personally I am tired of happy endings(in stores, not massage parlors).  On the other hand though, you can’t just make them evil for evil’s sake.  The character needs to have a reason for that propensity to do not-so-nice things.  At least they don’t seem so nice to the person on the receiving end.

We need a good new solid story that tells you the story from the very beginning from the “bad guy’s” point-of-view.  Make you love that character, make you feel their pain, and then feel all kinds of happiness/shame/arousal/all sorts of other crazy feelings at the fact that they are hacking off heads, raping nuns, doing the crossword puzzles on their neighbor’s paper, not putting the toilet seat down and whatever else is deemed ‘evil’.  Write in a good breaking point.  Or better yet, have the character with a completely lucid mind.  He just firmly believes that his way is best and he has the will power to make it happen.  Doesn’t matter what kind of crazy stuff you believe, with the right amount of charisma and interpersonal skills you can accomplish almost anything.  Hell look at Hitler.

Oh, and speaking of evils and Hitler, and zombies(even if not typed out, they are always thought of and their uprising is coming) I wish you all a Happy Easter, which after all is the most ancient holiday that worships zombies.

P.S. if anybody knows of a good book that is told from the evil mastermind point of view, let me know.  I have come across a few that I’ve read but most all are a disappointment filled with lots of the same old stuff.
