Horrible songs, a Google browser, and Twilight leaked

Dr. Horrible soundtrack! Dr. Horrible soundtrack! Dr. Horrible soundtrack!

Ahem. The official soundtrack to “Dr. Horrible” – as opposed to all the uinofficial ones all of us made within seconds of the videos hitting the Web – is now available at iTunes. And the lyrics and liner notes have been posted at the DrHorrible.com site. Woot!

In other funky download news, Google is preparing to launch their new open-source web browser today, called Chrome. Supposed to be a secret but their explanatory comic (by Scott McCloud) got leaked yesterday. Google’s press conference is set for 11 a.m. PDT today so expect the Interweb to slow to a crawl soon thereafter.

And some sad download news – Stephanie Meyer has announced she will not be publishing the last book in her enormously popular “Twilight Saga” series because an unfinished partial draft was leaked online.  “I think it is important for everybody to understand that what happened was a huge violation of my rights as an author, not to mention me as a human being.” She posted a link to the draft at her site so her fans wouldn’t have to break the law to get what’s already out there. This could be what finally tips the scales on the piracy fight: millions of outraged adolescent girls beating up the entire Internet.

    She didn’t say she won’t be publishing it. She said it’s on hold. And I’m confused why she would do so considering her other books are online through non-official channels and people who actually enjoy her books would wait for the final draft and go and read that one anyway. I mean, if earlier rough drafts of Harry Potter were released, people would swarm to read those as well, even though they already know the story.

  2. Mary Sue

    Oh, that is so much bull. She is just attempting to drum up more sales.

    Not that I have read or will read the books, they sound like the kind of thing that would make me put my fist through a wall, but I do enjoy the fact that there exists, somewhere in the multiverse, sparkly vampires!

    “In any case, I feel too sad about what has happened to continue working on Midnight Sun, and so it is on hold indefinitely.” That kinda sounds to me like she won’t be publishing it, unless “indefinitely” has a different meaning in the publishing world.

    Man, Mary Sue, your name could not be a more accurate descriptor of the main “character(s)” in these “books.”
    “Look how perfect and wonderful and sparkly we are wheee love us.”
    Ew. Also, I love how all of these comments are focusing on the last bit of the post…(Yes, that includes mine, obviously.)
    Anyway….this is my first comment. Yay… >>;
    The comic is good. I likes it.
    That’s all, I suppose…
