I don't regret much when it comes to the world of pop-culture.
I missed out on Pearl Jam early on, and thanks to the Sidekick, was shown the error of my ways. My regret is that I missed out on all the hype and excitement for each album - the anticipation of what's to come. After all, isn't that half the fun of following a band?
I get the same feeling for Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog.
It was on the peripheral of my Internet browsing habits 3 years ago - I knew it was there and heard it being talked about, but just kinda ignored it - Neil Patrick Harris really didn't do it for me, and the whole musical thing just seemed weird.
Talk about being wrong.
Based on a solid recommendation from the Twin, as well as some others, I checked it out yesterday. I was blown away.
Complete fucking nerdgasm.
I'm glad I got to see it all in one go, but I kinda wish I'd have been paying attention when it was happening - the story just works for me, and the anticipation between each act would have driven me nuts. (Yes, I realize I'm a mid-thirties guy talking like a teenage girl at a Bieber concert.)
The next time something like this rolls around and I'm not paying attention, somebody slap me, please.
