Joss Whedon Explains His Pain

Falling into a Stave it Off favorites category: "great-writer-mediocre-musician", Joss Whedon offers us this little glimpse into what it's like to record the director's track to a movie or TV show. If you sort of love Joss for giving you things like Firefly, Buffy, Angel or Dollhouse... then maybe you'll enjoy this as much as I did. And you can thank NPR's This American Life for bringing it to us.

This was pretty brilliant—and actually made me want to buy the DVD of something I could but for free—and was only exceeded by Dan Savage's piece on the show.

It's also tempting to see the repeat performance at theaters Thursday night (oooh, but Jennifer Warnes is playing at the Triple Door the same night-what, oh, what to do?)

My favorite joke about DVD commentary tracks (and always tell before recording one) is:

What's the best vocal execrcise to do before recording a commentary track?

"Me, me, me, meeeeeeeeee."

Jennifer Warnes has a new booking for Monday at the Triple Door.
